    The less said about Nene's dance, the better. But speaking of Nene, I find it hilarious that she's under the impression that DWTS has ever been or is supposed to be a show of contestants on equal ground.

    Sure, Meryl and Charlie are pretty big ringers, but I personally would never watch if everyone was at the Nene level. She wasn't brought on to be someone with a chance to win. Nene was chosen to entertain.

    belladashwood, thanks! I'll look into them. I don't care if it takes time to learn, it's worth it.

    Well, hip hop is definitely not jazz, but there really is no clear definition for it in the first place which is why I asked and wondered how they want to say that's jazz or not. I've had jazz classes in France, Germany and the US and each country has their own style, each teacher has then their own style again. What's called contemporary jazz with one person, is called jazz with another, someone calls something modern jazz and someone else wouldn't even classify it as jazz at all.
    On a side note, I'd actually say what Charlie did in his first show was jazz. No one I know would have classified that as contemporary. Contemporary jazz at best. That said, I wish they'd stick to ballroom/latin.

    In the picture of the foursome before the show, it looked like Sharna had a mic clipped on! Yesss

    It was good to hear all those great compliments from the British commentators.

    Agreed! You can really see the quality of their performance in this video and why they got that much deserved monster score.

    I was curious if the ISU ever uses jazz in ice dance to see what they would include and could not find the term used anywhere in their regulations. I think there was a jive OD once, but not jazz.

    Gossip from Courtney (one of the mods) at PureDWTS:
    I don’t think anyone is going to be disappointed when they see what song Charlie & Sharna are doing – if Sharna plays her cards right with the choreography, I think Disney week could potentially be a HUGE comeback for Charlie. Now Meryl, I’m not quite sold on her song choice…it will be cute, but I don’t know that it’s going to be as memorable as Charlie’s in the long run.

I've just accepted that ballroom doesn't do enough cardio and I have to cross-train. Skating at least burns serious calories! (And doing ballroom has made me a seriously ambidextrous spinner.) But I also am not a workout-video person-I have to multitask. Treadmills are more my thing. If you just want a cardio burn and to watch Maks while you're doing it this has major up sides over most fitness videos.

    Samba the trick is not the hips. It's actually fairly lacking in Cuban action. The problem is that stupid 'bounce.' I would think since almost two decades of ice dance should have given Meryl KILLER knees and control, she might actually pick it up pretty well.

    Just checked Kristyn from AfterbuzzTV twitter account, she's double checking w/ her source about Meryl and Maks having the Samba since PureDWTS and Meryl's own tweet to Adam Rippon today could possibly be hinting that she may be dancing to something from Beauty and the Beast.
