    I figured we deserved a new thread for this week. So here goes. Comment away when the absurd new dances get going. ;)

    "Knight Rider" Banghra?

    Yet again, I am not Derek's biggest fan, but he somehow found a way to turn that into a choerographic FU to the producers, I could NOT blame him. In fact I'd totally be on board with that.

    Is anyone else watching? If so, can you please assure me I really did just see that dance from Melissa and Tony and I'm not hallucinating?

    A regular hustle would have been nice. Although I think they did the best they could with the completely stupid dance theme.

    Yeah, pretty much, Fridge Break. Not what I think when I think Hustle, but...I mean, what were they supposed to do? I have a feeling this may be the theme for the whole first half because huh?

    "Because why not?" I think Tom is just calling it like he sees it tonight.

    Oh, great, so this is the dance drunken uncles do at Indian weddings. And this is what to do with Knight Rider?

    Okay, so if you took away the costume and lighting effects, this still had what to do with Knight Rider? (And that song's called "India" by DJ Panjabi. I have it for use as a samba.)

    I'm really impressed by how much Shawn has grown as a performer from her first time on the show. Those few additional years seem to have made a big difference in her confidence and maturity.

    Obviously an epic fail for the producers--it all made total sense, musically and dance-wise. They won't make THAT mistake again.

    Clearly tuning in late tonight was a good idea. The only dance I saw was Emmitt's and it was silly but not awful.

    Kelly, sweetie pie, people would probably like you more if you stopped visibly pouting.

    Valentin, you are not as hot as you think you are, put some clothes on. Please.

    Kelly's dance certainly didn't have less content that Melissa's hustle.

    I love that version of Malaguena! Would love to see someone skate to it again after Lambiel used it as his SP for a while.

    Melissa/Tony's Argentine Tango was brilliant. I HAVE to vote this week.

    What happened to the regular staircase the teams go up to the skybox? They're taking some backstage stairs on up now.

    lol, good point! Maybe people kept tripping on it or something; I dunno.

    Anyway, all my votes are going to Shawn...gymnastics gotta represent. ;) But honestly, I would be happy if Melissa won; she's a great dancer, seems like a nice person, and Tony deserves it. Really, as long as it's not Emmitt (useless; I keep forgetting he's even on the show) or Kelly-who-is-starting-to-get-annoying, I'm good! Hope the final 3 are Apollo, Shawn and Melissa, and that it's EPIC.

    DwtS All-Stars has been great...such a great level of dancing that the producers have to keep dumbing it down with stupid "theme" nights, lol. But the dancers still deliver. There's only a handful of dances this season that I loathed; most of them were good and a lot of them were fantastic! I expect that the All-Star dances will feature heavily in "top dances" episodes for years to come.

    Tongue bath continues for Emmitt whom I'm finding to be pretty average. Loved Melissa & Tony's tango and likes the bangha dance by Shawn and Derek. He should've given the choreographer props for it.

    Hated the whole gimmicky feel to most dances and the pyro jets.

    Louis: "Get a room." Louis gets a 10 from me for that comment alone.

    Kelly: YOU'RE AN ACTOR. ACT. SAME THING.

    So on DWTS, bobbles, last-minute fixes (I do it myself, i know it when I see the 'oh crap foot should be out there and knee straight' correction) and being kind of choppy is now "vulnerable."

    I really hope it's Kelly and Emmitt going home tomorrow...I have a feeling Apolo and Melissa might be in trouble, though...

    I think Savchenko/Szolkowy used it. It was also used for Derek/Nicole's 50s paso IIRC.

    Melissa's tango was AMAZING. What a joy to see Tony so happy. I really hope they make it to the finals.

    Shawn was great, as always, but I actually was expecting some more flash. The Argentine tango was actually understated for Derek. :rofl: They'll def make the finals.

    Apolo did amazing things in the circus dance. They were way, way harsh for the slip which was on nothing. And the rhumba was nothing short of magnificent, well deserved 30. Love his attitude and hard work.

    I should be glad that they let Emmit even be tied for last. I liked Cheryl's dress for the tango.

    Kelly's flamenco was a little frantic. 8.5 was harsh though. At least it had content. Loved, loved, loved the rhumba. It's the dance that I've been waiting to see them do, and it didn't disappoint. I wish Bruno had thrown a 10 though. I mean she doesn't really deserve to get the same score as Apolo for that dance, but far lesser dances have gotten 10s this season.
