    Scores and standings carrying over after last week:
    (c=cha cha cha; f= foxtrot)

    1. Ralph & Karina (f) 8+8+8= 24
    2. Kirstie & Maks (c) 8+7+8= 23

    3. Chelsea & Mark (f) 7+7+7= 21
    3. Hines & Kym (c) 7+7+7= 21

    5. Romeo & Chelsie(c) 7+6+6= 19
    5. Chris & Cheryl (c) 7+6+6= 19

    7. Petra & Dmitry (f) 6+6+6= 18
    7. Kendra & Louis (c) 6+6+6= 18

    9. Sugar Ray & Anna(f) 6+5+6= 17
    10. Wendy & Tony (c) 5+4+5= 14
    11. Mike & Lacey (f) 5+4+4= 13

    I watched without following the thread last week to be sure that
    my opinions were really my own! I liked Disney girl (Chelsea),
    Ralph, and Kirstie the best and then Hines and Sugar Ray were in
    my next tier. I wasn't sure if Ralph seeming so good was just
    because of the contrast to what I was expecting after seeing
    him in his package. We'll see how things look this week now
    that expectation levels have been set by week 1.

    And we're off. Thank goodness the president wrapped things up on time.

    ETA can an admin merge the threads? We posted at the same time. :lol:

    Hines looks more relaxed this week during the intro.

    Khloe Kardashian tweeted asking everyone to support her godfather - Sugar Ray (Anna retweeted which is how I saw it).

    A better dance than last week's for Sugar Ray.

    Sloppy in parts but a lot of personality and charm. For once I actually think Bruno gave useful feedback.

    I'm afraid Sugar/Anna may be in trouble tomorrow. They were last in a TV guide poll which means the public may not be impressed. (((((Anna)))))

    Could be, but he was above Petra and Wendy in the TV Guide poll. It's hard to tell.

    Why does Louis always get the headcase that needs to feel feminine and pretty?

    The color of Kendra's dress is absolutely gorgeous! I like that she's giving this a try. I wasn't too fond of her last week, but I appreciate the effort. And she danced the quickstep better than she did the cha cha last week.

    Kendra's improved some from last week. Just dreadful music for a Quickstep.

    ACK! I was sure the president's speech would run over, so I started watching a DVR of House Hunters. But I have to know which house they buy! The turn-key property that's over budget, the fixer-upper with low price tag, or the colonial that's within the budget but has a long commute? :drama:

    (The chose the turn-key property that's over-budget. The colonia was WAY cuter, and since when is 20 minutes a "long commute"? :confused: )

    And the DVR FAILED. I hate my DVR. And they didn't even pick the right house. I like Kendra's sparkly, sparkly dress. She looks as elegant and lady-like as she can. It's a nice foil for Carrie Anne's metal gauntlet boob.

    Chelsea has talent, but that routine was too over the top. Len should flip.

    Yeah, it kind of is scary, but I really enjoyed the choreography...the music, not so much.

    That could be a really cute routine if Chelsea was a little faster. Will Len hate it?

    Marcel Marceau Desperately Seeking Lolita In a Clockwork Orange?

    Bruno has topped himself.

    However, Len and Carrie Anne were right.

    I would have liked that concept had it been choreographed by Mandy Moore and done as a contemporary number with Lacey and Danny rolling around on the floor, I would have really enjoyed it.

    But it wasn't a quickstep. Though if Jennifer Grey had done that, it would have been praised as being innovative, fun, and what a fresh take on the quickstep.

    I didn't mind that routine, but I knew it was going to disliked by 2/3 judges...

    What was the song from? Did that have something to do with the costumes and story?

    Chris Jericho must now be known as Gandor. I'll bet he has a secret stash of JR Tolkein under his bed and hobbit porn somewhere.

    That snark out of the way, that dance was absolutely delightful. I can't wait to see him do a Paso Doble. That is the type of routine I watch DWTS for. :respec: The Chelsie/Maks routine is why I watch SYTYCD. I like both, but I watch DWTS for the originial form of the dance, and SYTYCD for the updated, more contemporary version.

    I also adore Chris's, ahem, cheeky personality. :p

    I should hope it wasn't. It was, allegedly, a jive.

    Mark looked like one crazy, crazy dude.

    Pleasantly surprised by the wrestler. Can't wait to see Kirstie though. :)

    It was supposed to be a jive.

    Chris and Cheryl much better than I expected.
