Had to rewatch Meryl's AT. At the end of it you can hear Val tell Meryl "I love you baby" and Meryl says I love you back.
Yeah, these two DEFINITELY did not get along...
There is nothing androgynous about Peta. She looked smokin and womanly. They looked like a pair, not brothers. She brought it out of Charlie and it was organic to me. Maybe if we could morph Peta and Sharna into one person we'd have something. I like Charlie's hair. It needs to be that way for the sexier dances...and no pony was perfect. Slicked back tiny pony tails remind me of pervy older men. There was no hip action, so that was honest. If Carrie Ann is going to knock points for lifts I'd like some consistency.
Meryl and Val were awesome. I knew that song had a load of potential (though how Len could knock Val for staccato movement, when the music required it is beyond me). It was sexy without neon too sensual. Leave that for her and Maks. Meryl seemed to be enjoying her man sandwich and I'm sure the Chmerkovskiy grandmother has her on speed dial. She's really blossoming as a dancer.
I have a few friends who work on American Idol, which tapes in the studio next to DWTS, and word is that Charlie is in a bit of vote trouble. VOTE!
Meryl Davis and Val Chmerkovskiy (78 out of 80)
James Maslow and Cheryl Burke (71 out of 80)
Amy Purdy and Mark Ballas (70 out of 80)
Charlie White and Peta Murgatroyd (69 out of 80)
Danica McKellar and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (68 out of 80)
Cody Simpson and Sharna Burgess (66 out of 80)
Drew Carey and Witney Carson (63 out of 80)
NeNe Leakes and Derek Hough (63 out of 80)
Candace Cameron Bure and Tony Dovolani (60 out of 80)
I don't think Charlie is in too much trouble considering his placement :/
Are the Vocal Vault videos sped up? Because Meryl and Val's dance is so fast in places, it doesn't look real.
Did some calculations to figure out how best to vote for both Meryl and Charlie tonight. Just kidding, 1/3 and 2/3!
I love Val's choreography- I feel like he puts a lot of thought and synthesis into his choreography and tonight he had a perfect partner to execute it.
They were awesome! I did not like that song at all going into tonight but he made it work. So proud of the both of them.
The DWTS discussion boards on both previously.tv and TWoP are blowing up about how Julianne was an obnoxious, rude little shit with her dig at Maks saying that he "phoned it in" to get back with Meryl.

And I think it's fair to say both she and Charlie brought the sexy in the dances tonight. I'm proud of both of them; they are truly growing as performers. I'm honestly wondering if this won't inspire them to do one more competitive season? A girl can dream...
Wow, Meryl. Just wow.
improving my ballad- like lines
at Maks sweeping the floor for her Majesty's entrance and then holding onto her as long as possible, even while hugging his own brother. And then his missed swipe to grab her again after the scores.
Holy crap, Meryl. I literally GOT CHILLS watching that!
and I'm on the bandwagon of one more competitive season...i can dream too
"Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him."
Did anyone catch the look(s) on NeNe's face when Meryl and Val received their scores?
