That's interesting because I've seen dance competitions that use raw scores. Maybe they weren't real because at least one of them was in the movie Silver Linings Playbook. But that was a different federation, I believe. There are a number of groups putting on dance competition (I have friends that do different kinds of dance) and they use different scoring systems. And it's the audience voting that brings in the audience. All these shows with audience voting have huge ratings. To say DWTS is based on the old 6.0 system because judges give a mark when it's not marks based on a 6.0 system and they are added to an audience score in some mysterious way that is never revealed and so many sports and competitions also give out marks based on a 10.0 system and then claim that DWTS popularity is proof that 6.0 is better than IJS is completely illogical to me.
