May be too early yet, but I'm not loving Dialidol tonight.

If Nicole is the best dancer ever on the show, I thank God I've never watched it before this year.

I'm only watching for Evan, but I've gotten warm fuzzies for Erin and Pam. I like Neicy but she does wear on the nerves a bit.

And....in what world is fairness ever a consideration? If you find that world, let me know where it is.

I'm pretty sure Carrie Anne says that to someone every season. :lol:

Technically, I'd say Mya is the best dancer that's been on the show.

Overall though, I'm biased towards Apolo. :D

I agree. Evan could very well be going home tomorrow. He only had a 5 point lead over last-place Niecy, which definitely isn't a lot when they assign the judges scores a percentage and then add in the viewer votes.

DialIdol is meaningless people!

It doesn't take into account text or internet votes and look how small that sample size is. Just because it was a good predictor in the past doesn't mean it still is. I don't know if it ever really has been for DWTS.

Missed the show (hanging with writer peeps). But IIRC someone linked a pic of B/A demo-ing to Ev/An. I didn't look then - can someone point me to the pic now?

('Cos that's also cool, considering the whole Evan/Tanith thing.)

Oh, thank you! I knew it looked familiar.

I thought that Evan's and Anna's dance was HOT!

Evan was truly smokin' hot tonight in my book :hat1: So glad he got the first perfect score of the season. His willingness to work like a dog is paying off yet again. :dog:

He should get the encore tomorrow night and he should be safe. I vote online and gave him all my votes this week.

It's not meaningless. It's been pretty spot on for DWTS the past three/four weeks.

We'll just have to disagree then. I just seriously can't believe that Evan will get voted off tomorrow night.

Just to be on the safe side, I registered another email address. Good thing I've got a few laying around.

We'll just have to disagree then. I just seriously can't believe that Evan will get voted off tomorrow night. In fact, I'm betting he's leading the pack in viewer votes.

I'm not saying it's totally accurate, and I am aware that it doesn't include text or online voting, but as of late, it's been a pretty good predictor for DWTS. I didn't say that Evan would for sure be going home, just that he very well could be (a la Sabrina Bryan).

If anyone's interested, here's how the judges votes are factored into the final total:


THE PROCEDURE FOR ELIMINATING COUPLES:

Each week every couple receives points from the judges and votes from the public. For every couple we work out the share they got of the points given by the judges on the night, and the share they got of the public's votes on the night and we add these two shares together. The couple with the lowest combined total is eliminated from the show.

For example if couple A, B and C receive 38, 26 and 14 points from the judges, we calculate what share these points represent of the total awarded by the judges on the night. In this case the judges gave 78 points in total, and each couples' share of 78 points breaks down as follows: 38= 48.72% of78, 26= 33.33% of 78, 14= 17.95% of 78. Let's suppose that when the public votes are tallied, each couple has the following shares: A= 20%, B=40%, C=40%. To determine who's eliminated we combine these two shares for the total:

Couple A: 20+48.72%= 68.72%
Couple B: 40+33.33%= 73.33%
Couple C: 40+17.95%= 57.95%
In this case, the bottom two couples would be A and C, and C would be eliminated.

Following this formula, the judges gave out 311 "total points" this week. Here's the breakdown for the scores (without the viewer phone, text and online votes factored in yet):

1) Evan (17.36%)
1) Nicole (17.36%)
3) Chad (16.72%)
4) Erin (16.40%)
4) Pamela (16.40%)
6) Niecy (15.76%)

Hi,

Can people vote online from Canada?

Not sure, but I'd think so considering you can phone vote.
