    Chad's Waltz just adequate with Cheryl doing all the difficult steps.

    I'm afraid of his fanbase!

    It's hard to see details on this web feed, but I think I really liked what they were wearing and also noticed Chad's improved posture and carriage. Gonna go vote for Evan with all phones in this building during the break. :D

    Numbers dad voted for Erin, Numbers grandson voted for Erin and Evan, Numbers voted for Evan.

    I am fearful that Erin will not be in the finals. I would prefer Nicole to go, but can only hope for an Erin, Evan and ?? final.

    So, will Evan get 9s or 10s to keep things even.

    I really hope Evan at least makes the finals because then he'll get the maximum amount he can for the series - and he can probably use the money more than any of the others. There's no bonus for winning, just for making the finals.

    This footie fan watches! ( ok soit is a different football. :shuffle: )

    Loved Chad and glad there is at least one star left who have no dance experience what so ever. :)

    Good Lord, Evan has zero charisma in these interviews. And last week's robot voice thing was just.....weird.

    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.

    Kate is the new DWTS reporter for E.

    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.

    I wish he would have. Len is crabby.
