    :rofl: Bruno's keeping the censors busy tonight.

    Great scores for Evan.

    Getting busy signal for Erin. Cheryl looks sick.

    :rofl: It really did look like that didn't it?

    That expression on Len's face was beyond hilarious.

    Daredevil, that made Evanescence famous. (Joannie's ex My Immortal is from them)

    I think Len wonders that every week.

    I learned two things from the phone-number recap--Chad is distantly outclassed, and no one including Erin should ever wear satin pants.

    That was awesome from Evan. He may not be the most naturally gifted skater or dancer in general, but he was made for that dance.

    If Evan wins, I hope more skaters will be invited. I know MK has been asked and she turned them down, but I'd love to see Oksana dance with Maks or even Sasha. And if dancers like Sabrina and Nicole are acceptable, having Tanith and Ben would be awesome. Especially competing against each other. Ben paired with Edyta would be :swoon:

    Evan's Paso Doble was smoking! I hope he brings it like that next week.

    I worry that having another skater win could make them less likely to have another skater on for fear it would have solidified the "ringer" label.

    Prince would have had his purples match. Nicole didn't manage that.

    It hasn't for football players. Skaters aren't gifted dancers, especially singles skaters like Evan and Kristi. What they have is a sense of music and a focused work ethic. So did Shawn Johnson. I'm betting more athletes have won this competition than any other group. Some one who's a dedicated fan can add them up. :lol:

    Emmet Smith, Apolo, Helio, Shawn, Kristi: that's five out of 8. The others were, Kelly Monaco (actress), Brooke Burke (spokesmodel), Donny (singer)....are there more?

    Just did phone voting (for the first time EVER) for Evan. Got through immediately; hmm, should I be worried? :p Nah. Now off to give scads of online votes to my man Evan; that's my specialty so I have a minimum of 90 votes heading his way ASAP. ;) The website is getting hammered; I think all creation must be voting tonight! Hope they're voting for Evan!

    Why would they worry about that? Practically every year, the feature some singer who spent 10 years studying dance in a performing arts school. Melissa was a pro cheerleader. Erin was on the college dance team and studied ballet for years (not that it shows.) Point being, this show loves ringers. Let's be honest. It would not be entertaining if every contestant danced like Chad or worse.

    Grrr, the voting website is fracked at the moment. Lucky I got in a ton of votes before it started going belly-up.

    I agree, I just worry about the general perception scaring them off if they fear a backlash. I believe that Drew Lachey was the other winner. The dancer-singers have done well, but they haven't always won. Just Drew (and Donny if you count him, but I don't think he had all the training of some of the others that have been on) whereas skaters will be 2 for 2 if Evan wins. But I would love it if he does win and more skaters are invited. I vote for Kurt to be next!

    I think you can keep voting online tomorrow morning if you can't get through now.

    Phew, finally done! That website sure wasn't cooperating much, was it. ;) So 85 online votes and the maximum phone votes from me; I guess that will do for tonight!

    I'd love to see Tanith and Ben, but they'd be the ringeresty ringers of all time. They have actual ballroom training.

    Seconded! And have a road block that requires memorizing choreography and lots of tasks requiring excellent coordination (they do anyway, don't they?).

    So, could Brooke's boobs fall out of her dress much more?

    I really hope she's a one-season-and-done cohost. She's still awful -- how many times did she use the word "package" tonight? It isn't as if it is a terribly hard job, surely they could find someone who can work the interview more fluidly. A lot more fluidly.

    Well, after watching all that..I will say that even though Evan might not be a "dancer" per se like Nicole, he certainly showed a very wide range of expression tonight-from his aborable cuteness in the Foxtrot to his sexy Paso. Nicole was just a pseudo stripper all night. Yawn.

    I admit everyone was very good tonight.

    Evan's fox-trot had me in happy tears.
    All votes go to Evan!!!
