Has anyone said that Melanie looks like Irina Slutskaya?

Still like Melanie and Marko the most. My vote to go home is team Chris/Ashley.

Irina S?? Hmmm, I don't see it at all. I think because from the start Melanie has reminded me of Big Love actress Jennifer Goodwin.

I also agree with Genevieve, except my DVR messed up last night and I ended up missing Chris/Ashley and Caitlyn/Mitchell, so I can't comment on them. Bah!

I thought Travis was a good judge, except I was irritated when he said Melanie was "by far" his favorite dancer in the competition. That's fine if she is his favorite, but a little impartiality while on panel would be nice, thanks.

Speaking of M&M, her costume was hideous, as was the opening HMV move :yikes: Also, all of the blatant Melanie "you're the one to beat" pimping - especially after a ho-hum routine - is not going to do her any favors; it'll cause backlash and maybe cost her votes later.

^^It also gives us the impression that if she ends up in the bottom the judges like her enought to save her. The judges should be more careful with their prejudices.

Wow, what a boring show. I had so much hope for the new choreographers, but it was just more same old same old. What I found particularly uninspiring was that there was more hip hop in Ryan/Ricky's jazz than there was in Sasha/Alexander's dance. Guess I just don't like smooth hip hop, but until Nigel decides that the other styles won't scare the public, we're stuck with this lyrical crap.

Melanie/Marko, gawd the costume people must really hate Melanie. OK dance.
Sasha/Alexander, didn't like this at all, but I thought Alexander did better than one would expect him to.
Jordan/Tadd, agree with the comments that the fog hid the feet, so I have no idea how they did.
Clarice/Jess, decent, but it would have looked so much better with a taller male. Not Jess' fault.
Ashley/Chris, the package implied that it would be fast. There was only one fast section and I could do it. Bleh.
Ryan/Ricky, Ryan was clunky in this. Didn't get it.
Caitlyn/Mitchell, well danced. I liked this best of a poor lot.

Chucky Klapow actually has a pretty big connection to skating. He was one of the choreographers on Skating with the Stars (I know that wasn't really skating) and he has worked on Stars on Ice and High School Musical on Ice.

I didn't care for much of the choreography last night, either. And I didn't get all the love the judges were giving Caitlyn and Mitchell. It was just "ok" to me. It wasn't clean, by any means. I always get annoyed when people get wrapped up in the song, more than the actual dancing taking place. It's like a movie you watch, without the soundtrack, and doesn't seem so good when the music isn't there.

I agree about it not being clean. I thought Caitlynn in particular was sloppy. Several of the transitions were far less clean than they needed to be. However, the music was so bombastic that I think it helped to hide many of the imperfections.

The judges needed somebody to gush over and since this was the final group of the night I guess they were it. I'm still trying to figure out how it was romantic--it was everything but.

I kept think I wasn't impressed because I hated the song so much.

I feel like Nigel tries to force a masculinity and heterosexuality in the dances. For some of the guys, it's not a stretch, but for others, it just doesn't work. There are a million things guys and girls can dance about that aren't about a heterosexual romantic relationship.

Exactly. It wasn't just you. Every time I think about the top 10 guys performing and Mitchell told us the dance was going to be "explosive" I cringe. No offensive, but that drew a picture of an effeminate man and I haven't been able to get that out of my head. I think Mitchell is a wonderful dancer, but I hate to see hetero relationships forced. Plus, the intros that we see of Caitlynn and Mitchell don't help at all---no connection of any kind at all.

ETA: I get a similar feeling when I watch Sasha and Alexander---it's so forced. I'm not making any inferences about either, but I don't feel a connection between either of them, and Sasha has a harder edge and Alex has a softer one. They shouldn't be paired together.

Ditto to all you've said! Thank you for putting my thoughts in words! And might we also extend the false "forced" pairings to Tadd & Jordan and Ricky & Ryan! Not feeling anything from either of these girls....tragically blank...and their partners are kick ass good! Sad....:(

This x infinity. It really does a disservice to the world of dance to present duets as being almost always about heterosexual relationships.

MEMORY CHECK: It's driving me crazy and I bet someone on this thread can answer. Remember several seasons ago, during the 3 guys dance before judges vote you out thing, for his solo one guy just came out and just did a bunch of spins and a few little steps. Nigel said something like "how much time did you put into that". The guy replies "uh ... none actually!" Then Nigel went off on them about not putting any effort into their solos. This guy got booted that night. I know I didn't make this up in my head, but I can't think who that guy was. Someone please tell me who it was and that I am not making this up in my head as my friend tells me I am. I know I remember this! :P
