Stuart Brazell And Elena Grinenko Review The Judges Comments On Dancing With The Stars

In this week’s Dancing With The Stars pre-party, Dance Junkies TV Host Stuart Brazell and award winning ballroom pro Elena Grinenko review the judges comments and see if they are making the right calls this season. Some of this might shock you. As Heidi and Court have told us many times, the couples dance might look good and perfect to the regular viewer, but, they aren’t always following the rules of competition ballroom dancing. IE: Mark and Katherine’s dance last week. Note how Elena gets as frustrated with the “hot” references for William as much as we do.

Fascinating stuff!!! See if you don’t agree?

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .
