Carrie Ann Inaba just tweeted about how good the band was last night! Is she kidding me??? I sure hope she doesn't read this thread http://twitter.com/carrieanninaba
Some of singings makes you think that having a DJ would have been just enough.
Nicole and Derek's rule violations were certainly all Derek's fault - there's no way he didn't know that the lift was illegal, much less the other stuff - but it sure was a great performance. Nicole is totally a ringer, and it's not fair, etc etc, but damn she's a good dancer and most of this cast is so awful that I don't care. That routine was great.
Oh, and the guy singer sounded really hoarse in a couple of songs.
Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry
I'm of the conspiracy mindset on this one -- better for them to get slapped this week than to be the top scoring couple three weeks in a row. I think that Derek has plenty of experience to know just what's going to tick Len off, and he made sure to include just enough of it.
Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.
On the Evan's feet thing: I watched Derek's feet, and I noticed that on a number (but not all) of the steps in hold he slides his feet into the next position, with most of the weight seeming to be on the ball of the foot. Evan lifts, separates and steps down throughout the dance. (Sounds like a bra -- the new Evan bra -- it lifts! it separates!) But I still don't understand what the reference to ankles is about.
The only time I really got the posture thing is where Evan ended up more hanging on Anna (maybe a little late) and his shoulders weren't over his hips, which made his butt stick out some -- is that what Len was referring to?
I also get the feeling that Anna doesn't particularly like Evan, and I wonder why? (Or maybe that's the demeanor she has with other partners too?)

I couldn't find the Jon and Kate thread, but since this is linked to Kate and DWTS....
hmmm. I hate to defend her since I don't care much for her (or at least what I've seen of her in TV), but a lot of the practice sessions aired on tv show them in her basement in PA. So evidently she is home several days a week. Me thinkey Jon wants a reversal of the child support...as in he gets paid the child support from her. Wonder which girlfriend he'll have watching the kids if he gets custody? (Because, you know he can't use nanny's, since he's complaining about Kate using them).
Granted Kate is a fame whore accustomed to some nice living, however, she seems to hate dancing and appears really uncomfortable on DWTS. Something tells me this was not only an opportunity to get to 16 minutes, but also a way for her to pay the mortgage and feed 8 mouths in the style her children have become accustomed to (since Jon is obviously drinking, deadbeating, and partying away alot of money)
New tweet from Tom
Another bottom 2 surprise tonight on DWTS.
I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
Anyone have a URL for any JustinTV live east coast streams of DWTS?
Sorry, please disregard. I found the http://www.tvpc.com/Channel.php?ChannelID=2119 link on first page of this thread.
There is nothing more captivating in this world than a woman's form gracing the ice in skating boots. It's simply sensational!
Perhaps Kate will be back home full-time soon. Her dancing really is terrible.
Is Jon payng any child support at all? Don't you need income for that? Is his big idea not to work so he doesnt have to pay? I know that the lawyer he went to court with on Friday was doing it a as favor "to be payed later." Kate isnt Miss Congeniality but I hate when one slacker ex spouse of either gender gets away with this type of irresponsibility.
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
