    Evan's foxtrot very Gene Kelly and charming. I hope Len doesn't hit them on the side-by-side stuff.

    Evan was reminding me of an Ice Dancer with that perma smile thing going on. Maybe Tanith gave him some perk tips. :lol:

    I liked that from Evan, not the perk necessarily but the overall dance...

    I know at least one Nicole fan who was converted by the Wall-E voice so don't knock it! (It was a teenage boy. He's conflicted.)

    Scores after first dance:

    Nicole 10 10 10 = 30
    Evan 10 9 10 = 29
    Erin 9 9 9 = 27
    Chad 9 9 9 = 27

    Keeping it close.

    I don't know about technique, but that routine of Evan's certainly made me smile.

    That always seems to happen. When it comes to the semi-finals and finals the judges start throwing everyone practically the same scores. I suppose it's so the viewers can be blamed or something if a frontrunner leaves.

    Have you seen this yet? Sorry if you have, but I haven't read all the DWTS posts.

    Don't drop her at the end, Maks!

    Erin worked the Paso. Camerawork gone awry.

    Can't guess what Bruno said.

    I want Erin in the finals. She's my this season's Kelly.

    That was a really touching bio thingy with Erin. She looked a little off balance in some of her choreography but overall I liked it. (music was awful but that goes without saying).

    I agree with Len...it was an entertaining dance (though a bit messy), but strayed from the paso a *lot*

    I appreciate the sexy, but I didn't really like that dance.

    Nyeh. Again, just kinda okay. Though compared to some pasos on this show, it could have been worse.

    However if Chad makes the final and any of the remaining three don't...well, I'd have to be happy Nicole got cut but I'd still say take away football fans' voting privileges.

    I've liked Erin as a person all through this season but I'm not crazy about her dancing tonight. Maks has recycled the paso costume for the second time and the moves looked all over the place to me.

    And I know it's bad, but I really like Nicole and Derek's tango.

    I can't wait to see what Evan is wearing for his Paso. I can't get his Espana Cani costume out of my head for some reason, so it'll be nice to see what he's actually got on tonight.

    Ack!! I accidentally gave a vote to Chad when I was trying to hover to see what his next dance was going to be.

    That was...profoundly lacking in actual cha cha content.

    Sexy cha cha from Nicole. A bit overdone, but sensational.

    Did not like that dance at all.
    I think Evan has some kind of vampire or phantom theme for his Paso

    Was I the only one one who was underwhelmed by Nicole and Derek? :confused:

    If Evan wasn't on the show, I'd vote for Nicole, but I just can't. That could have been a pussycat doll routine. Len will give her a 9 and give Evan 10s to keep them in the top two.

    It had no. Cha cha. Content. It took more than 45 seconds to get to basic locks (and her knees were too soft, but the music was slow enough I suppose they could say it's American Ch Cha.) She did the same swivels as in all the other Latin dances she's done. It was a good Pussycat show, but it was not a cha cha.

    Well, that's my thing every week, more footwork, more content, but the judges don't insist on it.

    I thought she looked tentative and the choreography was a little on the trashy side for this show. Was the spank at the end really necessary?

    If Derek has a neck injury, it's from preening like a peacock for the camera.
