Thanks to Derek and Julianne Hough for their fantastic performance the other night…and for blowing up my Derek twitter search. That was a struggle to get through. 🙂 Amazing dance – I loved it.
As for the rest of the dancing, no one struck me as horrible, but at the same time, I was only really impressed by Nancy and David. I still wonder why Nick is getting so badly hosed every week. What is the deal? I have a hard time believing they are trying to give Peta an early exit – she’s a competitor and there’s no way she wants an early exit, baby or not. And fact is, Nick is NOT a dancer like many of the women are and he’s doing pretty darn good for someone who is a complete novice. I think he was better than Bonner by a good bit (and Peta is doing better for him than Sharna is for Bonner), yet he got the same scores from Len and Bruno as Mr. T and Charo did. In what freakin’ universe?? I love Mr. T – but he is not the dancer that Nick is, not even close. Come on, judges. Why is the bar set so high for Nick? You’re treating him like he’s a pro not living up to expectations, instead of Joe Bachelor who’s never danced before. Read more..
