Just watched both eps now, much on FF
I'm going to say the next 3 to go will be Kristie, Kelly and Apollo in some order. Kristie doesn't have the consistent high scores, Kelly is hit and miss and doesn't have a massive fan base, and even though Apollo was a stand out in his season, against some of the other All Stars his weaknesses are really showing. Karina also seems kind of meh about this whole season, she doesn't have that determination she usually has.
After that will be Sabrina and Emmitt. Sabrina has the scores to win, but I really don't think people like her very much. Emmitt also has the scores, but is a bit boring this year and I don't think Cheryl is going to help him gain votes.
Which means we'll be left with a season 8 finale all over again. Melissa will still get 3rd and Gilles and Shawn will go 1-2 separated by a super tiny percent again. Gilles may take it just because Shawn did last time, but he doesn't seem to be as popular this season, plus Shawn has all the votes from her fans AND Dereks. My 87 year old grandmother watches and votes for whoever Derek is with, even if she has no clue who they are. I don't think many people are voting for Gilles because of Peta.
And now that I've called that, expect a Kristie, Kelly and Apollo finale
What exactly is Apolo's weakness? It's certainly nothing on the technical side...
IMO, Apolo doesn't "mesh"/connect quite as well with Karina as he did with Julianne.
Gilles has something of the same problem with Peta.
The magic "something" that both had with their previous partners is missing.
I don't think that lack of desire/effort on their part is responsible.
I don't have much faith in a good dance coming from Kristie or Emmit, so let them go first. Still hoping for a good dance out of Kelly and Apolo. Would love to see Melissa with a great dance, but agree it will probably come down to Shawn and Giles.
I would be stunned if the final three isn't Gilles, Shawn and Emmitt.
If Kelly and Val are not "hooking up" she deserves an Emmy!
I guess nobody remembered that DwtS was last night? lol!
I wondered the same.
Hurricane Sandy may have had something to do with that.
I caught some of the dances on the ABC web site this morning.
I think Gilles is overplaying his sexiness. He looks like he's trying way to hard now and that makes him less sexy. I thought he looked borderline silly in his solo dance.
Shawn & Derek were solid but not spectacular. Not sure why Len was grumbling about the tractor and the cow in the background, LOL.
Let never have a country themed night again.
Apolo was really good and got 3 10's.
I think Kelly might be gone tonight. She did a tango that really just ...
Interesting that Sabrina is still at the very top after two weeks, but I'm okay with her being the top score-getter. I personally think the judges are padding her a bit because let's face it, there is a REASON she didn't win her original season. She may get the scores, but she doesn't get the fan votes. I mean, she's already been in the bottom two once (at least, I think it was a legit bottom two; I can't remember if it was or if it was just "in jeopardy").
I think the judges really want Kirstie to stay a bit longer, or they are hoping to confuse her fans and get her out like Bristol. Maybe they don't like where the Kelly and Val thing is going and are trying to get them out before things get awkward. Who knows? Conspiracy theories rock!
I'm not really worried about Shawn. She was a late bloomer, even in her original season. I don't think she got her first perfect 30 until right before the finale, if not in the finale. And maybe I"m biased, but I've loved all her dances so far...nothing boring or awkward. They've all been fun and memorable.
I agree with you about Sabrina, Spareroom. She's technically good, but I can understand why she may not be the fans' top choice. Now Apolo wow'ed me last night, the producers sure gave him and Karina an emotional song to work with.
Emmitt would be my choice to go tonight
