So, I'm part of this Dancing with the Stars group and all the people on there have done lately is bitch about who's "rumored" to be on it.

Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching

Dancing with the Stars -- I want the world to be caught up in the craze! I want American Idol to die and Dancing with the Stars to live forever.

I want Ralph Machio to be on it next season. I watched a marathon of the original Karate Kid this weekend and I remembered my love for him. He was such a cutie!

ashleyfanfic: (mark and shawn - made of win)

Okay, so my mom is super upset that Gilles didn't win. To the point where she said she isn't going to watch it anymore. But you know, it comes down to the freestyles, sometimes, and I really think that Cheryl lost it for Gilles much the same way Tony lost it for Melissa and Stacy Keibler. If your partner is good at a certain kind of dance, then you choreograph it for them, don't do something to drastically deviate away from what they're good at.

Shawn may not have been the best performer, but she was praised for having the best technique and was the best at nailing every step. Gilles was a hot steamy performer and you would think that if the man made 10s throughout the season on Latin dances that she would give him Latin. But no. It was some weird...Flashdance homage, and they used a chair, and it was just awkward! Mark, however, choreographed to Shawn's strengths! She's good at the acrobat stuff, because, duh, she's a gymnast and has no problem letting her feet go over her head. But then the dancing and synchronicity was there. They even spun on the floor at the same speed! Derek, Julianne, and Mark are the best at choreographing to their partners abilities. (i.e. Julianne/Helio freestyle, Mark/Kristi, Derek/Jenni)

So, do I think there is a consipiracy to give the Ballas-Hough's the best partners? No. Julianne had Adam Carolla. Mark had Kim Kardashian. KIM KARDASHIAN! She was a train-wreck to watch. Derek has evaded the curse, but I bet he gets it soon. I'm sure people figured that Brooke would be his achilles heal, but no one expected her to be so good.

Anyway, just found the whole conversation irritating. Shawn came in with a pretty large fanbase because of her gymnastics. Gilles was a relatively unknown, and Melissa rode her Bachelor fiasco to the finals. It truly was anyone's game, last night.

Dancing with the Stars: Thoughts and Speculations!

I think they were being so harsh on Melissa last night because maybe she had the next lowest people's votes compared with Lil Kim last week, which would have put her in the bottom two. So, by having the judges nitpick her and stuff they're hoping that it works in the same way that it did with Ty when Len said he needed to go home. So, in reality, I think they're trying to save her.

Gilles was great. I loved Shawn's Tango, not a big fan of her jive. I agree with Carrie Ann that she seemed to lose steam in the middle of it. Ty needs to go home, and Melissa's dances, to me, and I'm agreeing with the judges, were sort of boring. But I don't think that's her fault as much as the choreography that Tony had her do was boring. You know, Stacey Keibler was more deserving to win the year she was in it, but Tony lost it for her because her freestyle dance was just awful! I don't think he's choreographing to the best of her abilities.

But the final should be Shawn/Mark, Gilles/Cheryl, and Melissa/Tony. I think the final two should be Shawn/Mark and Gilles/Cheryl. And I say that because I know Tony isn't capable of choreographing a freestyle for Melissa that will even be in the same realm of what Mark and Cheryl are capable. Case and point. Drew Lachey's "Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy" freestyle won it for him! They've done it on the show since then because it was so popular. And Mark and Kristi Yamaguchi had one of the best freestyles I've ever seen, and if you have someone like Shawn who isn't afraid of their feet going over their head, then you're sure to get an awesome freestyle! I just don't think that Tony will be able to do Melissa justice. It's not a slight on her, it's a slight on him. He's a good dancer. And a good teacher, but choreographer? Not so much. If you look at the season as a whole, his choreography, compared to Derek, Julianne, Mark, Cheryl, even Kym is much more simple, and yes, it works, but in the final it won't.

Just a few things.

I'm back from Disney World! I had a blast. I went with my Aunt and my cousins. My little cousin Daniel is two and he was Peter Pan for the Halloween party at Magic Kingdom and he kept walking up to the characters and telling them that he was Peter Pan. I got to do the Kilamanjaro Safari. There was a giraffe three feet from me. It was awesome. And Daniel said that he wanted to take the baby elephant home and he called it Dumbo. It was sooo cute.

Also, I heard while I was gone that JKR outed Dumbles. Makes the 7th book make a bit more sense. Could explain why he was so willing to go along with Grindewald.
