    I'm not suggesting it as a trainwreck... being that it's all stars, I think it could actually be done well. Apolo/Shawn could be amazing together, IMO. And since doubling everyone up takes less space in the show, it would have to be done on a night where they dance twice (once with pro), so it wouldn't be an entire show of trainwrecks.

    One article I read also mentioned that some of the pairings were due to height. Drew was the shortest male celeb so they paired him with the shortest woman. If not, he might have had a partner taller than he was.

    Interesting. I never would've pegged Anna as the shortest pro. She has such extension, it wouldn't have occured to me.

    I watch the 8 p.m. show that was a replay of last night with some "truth booth" interviews. Finally realized who Maks in his Jagger outfit reminded me of -- Maurizio Margaglio circa '98-'99 vampire. :swoon:

    Results show: first elimination group: 4 teams-- Melissa & Tony, Kirstie & Maks, Gilles & Peta (we find out his zipper was down and he noticed it while at the top on the wire, able to fix it before the dance started), Cheryl & Emmitt.

    Melissa & Tony safe, Gilles & Peta safe. Cheryl & Emmitt safe.
    Kirstie & Maks in jeopardy.

    Next group to find out results: Shawn & Derek (judges gushing), Apolo & Karina, Anna & Drew (Drew: "Still don't understand the judges' scoring. ... Maybe next time we'll get the scores we deserve."), Kelly & Val.

    Shawn & Derek (got encore) and Apolo & Karina both safe.
    Drew & Anna in jeopardy.
    Kelly & Val safe.

    Wait, what? They're not doing the whole "three teams in jeopardy" bit?

    Now we are getting judges' reactions after the show. "Best show ever" blah blah blah.

    Now the judges and pros are talking about the dancers competitors choosing dances for each other. Gilles says he loves all dances so he's excited for whatever they get. Shawn ponders what dances have never been done on the show before. Sabrina tells Louis she hopes they haven't ticked off any of the other teams. Someone mentions a fear of polka.

    i dont hope sabrina goes home. but since she is the poster child of the shocking elimination, i would chuckle if the judges couldnt hold on to her for a second season.

    Now the 10 teams are finding out which 10 dances are available.

    Hip Hop, Contemporary, Broadway, Bollywood, Mambo, Bolero, Charleston, Disco, Jitterbug, Rock & Roll.

    First to choose: Bristol & Mark for Gilles & Peta.

    They are doing it like seeding (lowest combined score chooses for highest combined)

    Noooooooooooooooo! I think it's enough that SYTYCD has poor ballroom. Why would DwTS even try this?

    I don't like it. At all.

    Macy's Stars of Dance is a college student from Harlem who was accepted to Penn State but ran out of money to pay for it. So he went back to NYC and did tap dancing on the subway to earn money for his junior year.

    Music is a standard version of "New York New York" mashed with a hip hop version.

    "Hello/Broken Hearted" by Carmen is the guest star act. They give me a very Eurovision-y vibe.

    Ok. Now we are getting to the last 3 teams.

    Sabrina & Louis (her boobage still scares me)
    Helio & Chelsie (run into Cheryl & Emmitt backstage and lament the dress/stumble error)
    Bristol & Mark (on the floor waiting to begin while the rehearsal video is shown of their fight. Cut to close up of Sarah Palin. Cut to Bristol & Mark being all "fcuk it"/hug.)

    And commercial.

    We're back. They say Drew & Anna had the lowest and are already out.
    Next team safe is Bristol & Mark. (Chelsie smirks in a way that actually makes me like her more.)

    Sabrina is crying and Chelsie & Helio just look nervous

    Helio & Chelsie are eliminated.

    Not particularly fond of Helio, but other(s) certainly should have gone before him.

    I was hoping to lose Tara Lipinski Sabrina in a "shocking" elimination. Oh well.

    OK with Drew going but not OK with loosing Helio. Watching him dance and smile made me happy. None of the non-eliminated do.

    I'm holding in just to see Apolo do hip hop now.

    Didn't Sabrina and Mark date for a while? If they did, wouldn't pairing Mark and Sabrina feel a little awkward? So why would Bristol think Mark would want Sabrina? I think the whole thing reeks of staged upset.

    Yes, Sabrina and Mark did date for a while.

    I'm trying to pretend that Helio did not just get ousted. :(

    That and there was the added element of people whose former partners weren't on the show--Kelly pretty much was going to have a new partner no matter when she got asked.

    I was 50% right, I figured Drew and Bristol would go, but I'm okay with Helio leaving, he bores me. If Sabrina had gone I'd be PISSED. I'm glad Kirstie's staying--she's the worst left now in actual dance ability and isn't as good as she was on her season (I'm still kind of let down) but she's so much fun...

    If giving Tony and Melissa jitterbug was meant to be strategy, it could only be getting it off the board so they didn't get stuck with it because I think Melissa's going to be good at it. I am REALLY looking forward to Gilles doing Bollywood. I wish the eliminated couple had gotten Contemporary because I don't care who does, I hate it. And I'm VERY curious about what Cheryl and Emmitt's Bolero will be like. I like bolero a lot, Cheryl actually does have some background in American Rhythm, it could be good, but if he can't really do the lines it could be really bad. Derek and Shawn should blow mambo away--he's done it before on the show, it's not difficult if they're not grading you on your ability to count it right (and no one in the real world ever does, why would they on DWTS?) Being quick's an advantage...

    I hope they give Mark some sort of brief on what "Rock and Roll" means in this context. And poor Kirstie. Though it should at least be fun to watch...
