First, a commendation: I actually thought all of the judges did a great job with their respective couples, and was pleasantly surprised at how creative they all got. Definitely would not mind if they brought back the judges’ choice dance, in its current format, to the show next season. Second, another commendation: tonight felt like the first night in a long time where there wasn’t really a big agenda behind the scoring. I don’t think anyone got absurdly praised, and I don’t think anyone got absurdly punished – granted, the high level of dancing we saw tonight was a pleasant anomaly, but this was the first time in awhile where I didn’t feel like the judges were being underhanded with scores or critiques. It all seemed to fit nicely.
Not a whole lot else to add – just can’t believe it’s now week 9 and I only have one more week of this stuff before we enter the off-season…and I make it my personal mission to find Sasha a partner for next season Read more..
