    You're so right!

    We'll see what happens with Bill N tonight. An 80% torn quad? Seriously? That's pretty serious...

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I thought Bill was trying to withdraw but Tom didn't give him a chance. Perhaps because he knew he was gone anyway?

    I saw the same thing. He held his hand up and called to Tom. No one acknowledged him so I bet you are right.

    I saw the same thing too. Maybe Tom knew he was eliminated anyway so just ignored him to let the play out.

    I thought a lot of the camera work was terrible: too far or too close to see the feet and switching angles too fast. Just show me the dancing. I don't care for Leah, Snookie or Brant, even if they can dance; there's something about their personalities that makes me want to root against them. I felt bad for Valerie when she forgot the steps. I'll miss Bill Nye's enthusiasm, if not his dancing but at least I still Have Bill Engvahl to cheer for. He's a character.

    But the music they dredged up was terrible! Nearly 100 years of Hollywood soundtracks to choose from and that's what they came up with?
    I'd rather be thought of as absolutely ridiculous than as absolutely boring.

    Just watched the dancing, my favorite performances were from Bill E. and Snooki (surprisingly, but she totally killed that quickstep). Bill Nye's dance was super entertaining and I am going to dearly miss his spirit and his determination. Probably was for the best that they let him go, whether it be a legit outcome or not -- I have a feeling he was running away with the fan votes and nobody else is even close -- but it appears that he was going to pull himself out anyways. All for the best so that he can get his injury taken care of.

    Usually I flove the Charleston dances, but both of the ones tonight were crappy doodle. I expected more from Derek, and I know Mark is capable of better considering the one he choreographed for Melissa Joan Hart.

    Bill E. and Snooki were my favorites. I'm enjoying her personality and I thought I would not. Have seen some of Bill E. comedy acts and enjoyed them, but didn't think he would be able to pull off the dancing. There is something lacking(to me) in Val and his partner. They are good but.........I did like them better last night. Can't remember his partners name last season, but I miss her. For some strange reason the height didn't bother last year like it does this year.

    I loved Bill E too and am somewhat amazed that we've never seen a William Tell Overture paso in ice dancing. Wouldn't be surprised to see it in the future.

    Still haven't finished watching the episode yet so we'll see if I end up liking Snooki as much as everyone else does.

    I was really disappointed with the Charleston dances too. Sorry to see Bill Nye go but between the dancing and his injury, it was the right choice.

    At the last contra dance I went to a few weeks ago the band played the William Tell for one of the dances. Then for the last dance of the evening they played the Can-Can! Too bad I was sitting out both!

    Last week, they said Len would be out for this time and Julianne taking his spot due to some commitments re: Strictly Come Dancing. I saw a news thing that said he was out so he could rest up to start SCD.
    Does this seem true to anyone, or more of an excuse to open the spot for a guest judge? Seems they'd just add the 4th judge as a guest rather than have Len go, so I hope he is healthy and it is not anything to do with him needing any medical care. I believe he married a much younger 40 something woman so I guess he needs to keep his strength up.

    Moving along..I really liked Cheryl's eye shadow tonight. Elizabeth's looked similar but with sparkles.

    If they were going to get rid of a judge to open a spot for a guest, I'd hope it would be Bruno who rarely adds anything useful. But that is a heavy work and travel schedule for Len, so I wouldn't be surprised if he wanted a break.

    I really got mistyeyed at Tristan's comments about partnering Valerie. I thought Julianne was a good judge she gave strong constructive criticism. My pet peeve about tonight's show was the fact all three judges gave the exact same score to every couple. After the first judge showed their score the other two followed with the same score. No originality.
