    Actually you can start voting just before the show starts.

    Shawn and Derek was technically good but kinda meh. Loved Apolo and Karina's rumba.

    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.

    So, I've been reading on another forum, and people are REALLY gunning to get Kelly into the finals. Since Shawn is a fairly good bet to make it as well, if Shawn and Kelly make it in, then only one of Melissa, Apollo and Emmitt can move on. And it's close between all of them, and it's unlikely that it will be an all-girl finale.

    I guess we'll see. Honestly, Shawn is the only person who is probably a decent bet to make it in; the rest could go any way. I think Emmitt is so useless, but clearly SOMEONE is voting for him. He could sneak in; it's very possible.

    do they say why? it can't be for the dancing although i admit she seems to have tried hard and done better than in her original season.

    It's because of her dancing and the fact that it seems like the producers aren't big fans of her. Gotta root for the underdog, I guess. They seem to think Apollo and Emmitt are overscored (agree on the latter, not the former) in an effort to keep them around.

    I dunno; voting and eliminations have been ALL OVER the place this season; it's hard to say! I really didn't think Sabrina would go home that early, and I was surprised that Giles went home last week as well, considering that I thought he was the biggest threat to win.

    It's entirely possible that Melissa could go home tomorrow, if people really are voting for Kelly and Emmitt and/or Apollo have their fanbase keep them around. Melissa is practically tied with Apollo and Emmitt, and Kelly has survived worse point gaps than this.

    Based on dancing I would have her go out in 4th, but maybe people feel she's been judged harshly especially compared to Emmit. People love to root for an underdog and she's had a good attitude... joyless, but not whiny.

    I don't see how anyone could think Apolo is overscored. :eek: A lot of people hate Karina and Derek, so that's another reason why they'd want Kelly and Val to make it.

    There was controversy in Kelly's season anyway because a lot of people thought that John O'Hurley should have won (myself included) which is why they had that sham "rematch" later where the producers tried to correct themselves.

    Kelly seems nice but she's really stiff and she doesn't spot her turns and a lot of times it looks like her steps are kind of all over the place. But she's practically doing it with Val on the floor in front of everyone so it's overlooked.

    The controversy wasn't over the judging it was that there were some serious malfunctions in the voting for the final. The rematch wasn't so much as to correct it, but rather to capitalize on the unexpected popularity of the show. When the rematch drew great viewership, the show was picked up for a season two.

    If anything, their chemistry has waned significantly. Every time he kisses her she looks incredibly pissed.

    Soap actors have strong fan bases -- for the most part. With there being so few soaps left, General Hospital fans want to be heard.

    Melissa and Tony's Argentine was fantastic! Their caveman/hustle was weird, and I agree that some of the hustle turns were off. But, they did what they were supposed to do. They actually incorporated both concepts into their dance. The others, with the exception of Shawn and Derek, pretty much, just used costumes and props to show the concept and did the dance style straight up. Shawn and Derek's 1st dance was amazing - totally deserved the 30. Their Arge was not as good as Melissa and Tony. I didn't love Apollo and Karina's circus dance, but the rhumba was fantastic. Emmet - he was okay, not special. Kelley - cannot stand her! Her dancing has improved, but she comes across as a petulant bitch.

    If anyone hasn't voted online yet, there's still time (20 minutes here in the Central time zone). I just threw all of my votes Melissa & Tony's way -- I really hope that they can make the finals, but I fear that they will not. :(

    Kelly has trouble conveying any genuine feeling/emotion when she dances.
    Her technical flaws are all the more obvious, since she doesn't have the "connection" with the audience that encourages the public to overlook them, and "root" for her.

    Your lips to God's ears....I haven't voted all season but last night I voted for Melissa and Tony precisely because I'm afraid of the soap voters....

    I'm not a prude, but everytime I watch the two of them, I feel the need to shower. The other partners hug and I don't feel the same way at all. I really watched Kelly's feet last night. For someone as small as she is, she sems to have huge feet. I don't know if they are really that big or if they just look that way tome because she looks like she is just stomping around all the time.

    CA wants Emmit to win and she sees Shawn as his major competition, that was obvious last night by the way she scored. The final three need to be Shawn, Melissa and Apolo. I'd be happy for a win from any of them.

    It appears that either Apolo or Melissa will be going home tonight (results for them are up next).

    I don't know how I feel about this. I love them both :(

    Ugh. It should be Apollo AND Melissa, but it won't be.

    So. Apollo vs. Melissa - It should be Melissa, but Apollo could have gotten the momma vote.
    Kelly vs. Emmitt - I don't want either, but I guess Kelly? If people really have been voting for her like they say, Emmitt could be toast. But then again, SOMEONE is voting for Emmitt to keep him this long, so....

    WHO knows!
