    I have no idea. But I don't think I've ever met a performer who didn't love positive feedback from an audience. I guess it depends on the individual performer.

    Speaking for myself, DWTS is probably only slightly louder than an average evening session at a competition. Ballroom gets LOUD. In fact I hate being in the early-morning heats when there's almost no one there because no one yells. It's the best when you haven't run into someone you know yet and the first you hear is them yelling your name while you're on the floor. The MCs deliberately egg the crowd on, too. (Dan Messinger and Mark Brock like to tweak people on the floor by name, John De Palma (heard on "America's Ballroom Challenge") is ALWAYS on the crowd for "Who's your favorite couple, ladies and gentlemen?" He wants us LOUD!) If you don't have favorites, you yell anyway--Saturday night I didn't know anyone in the pro Rhythm final so I cheered for the couple the nice lady next to me knew. I would assume the pros at the very least are used to it and I'd bet that at least a few of them thrive on it.

    Late to the thread, as I was on vacation last week and only got around to watching the DVR this weekend....

    Yeah, I too was puzzled by that choice of attire. It looked ridiculous and unflattering.

    The song and the singing aren't bad while you're listening to it, but the music is totally forgettable once it's done. He's treading into Jason Mraz territority but not with the same impact.

    Wasn't it some sort of "USA Week"? I recall them mentioning the jive as one of the dances.

    Maybe I'm misremembering the theme, because it your spoilers are right, nobody is doing the jive.

    I recall a mention of programs themed around "Patriot's Day".

    I'm not putting a spoiler tag if it was published online at People.com.

    The samba originated in Brazil and was a byproduct of the West African slave trade. I'm pretty sure that DWTS doesn't want to delve into the "Uncle Sam"/"big American eagle" associations with that particular part of history.

    I think this week's competition deserves it's own thread ... unless it has been decided to keep all the DWTS posts contained in one until they reach 1000. I've been off-line for a couple days, so I may have missed it. Please ignore, if that is the case.

    I'm sure someone will start one for the play-by-play.

    And if they limited it to dances originating in America as in the United States, well, it would be pretty much Jive, with arguably Foxtrot. I'm betting they go for songs with a patriotic theme that happen to be vaguely danceable. (Patriot's Day? What, are we filming in New England now? The only "Patriot Day" I know is an attempt to stick that name on September 11, OR the to-do about Lexington and Concord, and possibly Bunker Hill. And I never met anyone who cared about those as anything resembling a holiday until I lived in Boston.)
