DWTS Season 21, Week SIX – Dancing by the Numbers

This week we have a pretty clear division between two groups of dancers and I’m not really sure why. It’s weird. I re-watch the dances and I agree that those three (Alexa, Alek and Hayes) had the weakest dances of the night, but I’m not convinced that the difference between some at the top and those at the bottom is that broad.  I don’t think any of the dances were “perfect” although I think Nick and Bindi were perfect *all things considered*.  Tamar, on re-watching, was not a perfect 40 either. Meanwhile, I think that Alexa and Alek should be tied with Hayes.  Of course, not giving Tamar a 40 and NOT giving Alexa and Alek 7s would have put them in much better striking distance at Tamar. Makes you wonder.

Then again – why give Andy a 40? He definitely deserved a high score…but that high? I loved that routine, for sure…but after giving him such a hard time in previous weeks, this just seems like a turnaround. I dunno, I’m kinda confused.  Anyway, here’s the leaderboard and the percentages.

Week 6 table 1

I’m not a Nick fan by any stretch, but I don’t get why Andy gets a 10 from CAI and Nick doesn’t – that’s weird, unless they’re setting up a redemption arch for Nick to help him to the MBT. But one point doesn’t really make a redemption arch, does it. Read more..

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

PureDWTS Season 21, Week 6 – Top 5 Complaints About “The Lift” And Why They’re Kinda Dumb

As I mentioned earlier on Twitter – I find it funny how all of the armchair dance critics just seemed to come out of the woodwork and point out everything that was wrong with “the lift” in the past 48 hours or so 😛 Every one of them was quick to point out Derek’s “shaking arms”, Bindi’s “bad posture”, or offered up examples of others who did “a much better job”. Just one question for, critics: you have attempted this lift yourself, haven’t you? I mean, for you guys to be so critical of it yourself, I assume you’ve researched it extensively and have honed the technique enough in order to offer up intelligent arguments about everything Derek & Bindi did that was just “sooooo wrong”? Yeah, didn’t think so.

Fortunately, I’m actually uniquely qualified to talk about it, as I HAVE done this lift, and my senior kinesiology thesis in college was a 25-page analysis on how to do the lift from Dirty Dancing.  After one very long semester of hours logged in the lab with a crashmat and my partner (and a few injuries), we got it down to a science, and wrote a very arcane paper full of physics & kinesiology jargon that explained how to do it – and we got an A 🙂 Now, as it has been quite a few years since I graduated, and the computer I had from college has since crashed, I was unable to dig up a copy of my original paper (I even went so far as to email my professor to see if she had a copy – turns out, she’s on sabbatical this semester). However, I still remember a lot of what I said in the paper, and I doubt many of you care about things such as concentric/eccentric muscle contractions – so I tried to condense it as much as possible here, and make it relevant to DWTS. So I decided to tackle the top 5 complaints I’ve been hearing about the lift, and explain why I think Bindi & Derek actually did a damn good job, given the circumstances. Read more..

Carrie Ann Inaba Talks “Famous Dance Night” in her DWTS Blog

Carrie Ann talks about why she handed out the scores she did – does she read this site? 🙂  I don’t agree with a lot of her rationale….or, I should say, I agree with a lot of her ratonale, just not the score that came from her rationale, if that makes sense.  I’ve put an excerpt from Parade, below, but be sure to click the link to read the whole thing.

Someone else who struggles with the same problem of not always being aware of her complete movements is Alexa Penavega. Her routine last night was to “I’m a Slave for You” by Brittney Spears, and she and Mark Ballas just didn’t quite deliver the quality of movement needed to pull off that number. It’s a hard pill to swallow after receiving the first perfect score of the season last week, and then being in jeopardy last night. My heart goes out to her. But she really does have the ability to be incredible. I think what is lacking is confidence. To know you own the space on the dance floor is a really big part of winning this competition. When you have confidence, your body dances differently. It’s like when someone walks into a room with confidence and they seem larger than life. When someone just as beautiful walks into the same room without confidence, they don’t seem to fill the room. How you feel about yourself while doing the routine is a big factor. I know these dances can be challenging and some styles are better suited to various individuals. But after you’ve rehearsed it, you have to get out there and know that no one else will ever do that routine again. It’s uniquely your performance so do it with all your confidence, and you will for sure excite us all.


When I think of strong and steady, I think of Alek Skarlatos. He is really a strong and steady performer. I don’t sense a lot of doubt in himself when he dances. His only weakness is that he hasn’t had a lot of experience performing. This is what makes everyone love him so much. Paula Deen said last night that she was a fish out of water. But I think actually it is Alek that is the fish out of water. With no performance background, he really is impressive. But this is what he needs to work on to be a contender. And don’t get me wrong. I do think he has the potential. I suggested he work with Artem Chigvintsev to learn a bit more of the masculine performance skills and a bit more flair. Lindsay has already done such an incredible job with his technique that he is solid and steady and a good partner! But his recreation of Elvis’s performance last night made it evident that as we head down the final stretch, he is going to need to up his game to stay in the ballroom.
