Favourite couples so far are Erin & Maks (points to icon) - I love their partnership, I love the banter between them :
Maks: This always happens. They ask for me, and then they regret it.
Erin: I didn't ask for you! I asked for Tony!!
Erin: (after Carrie Ann tells her to relax her death grip on Maks arm) "He kept telling me to hold on to his bicep, and I couldn't find it!"
It is entirely possible that Maks' ego may not make it through season 10 intact....
I also love Evan and Anna - so glad she got a contender this year - and Niecy and Louis have a special place in my heart; their waltz this week was beautiful, and I've adored Louis since last season when he danced with Kelly Osbourne.
Derek & Nicole are perplexing me - she's a great dancer, but she's also the ringiest ringer who ever rang!! The jive in week 2 was fantastic, but I don't think it was worthy of busting out the 10 paddles that early in the season. Also, this weeks quickstep was WILDLY overmarked - they did a lift, they broke hold halfway through, it was more like a charleston than a quickstep - and they get an 8 from Carrie Ann and a 9 from Bruno? Come on!! Len's 6 was more like it. It pains me to say it, because she is such a good dancer, but if the judges don't ease off she's not going to make it to the final, in fact I'd be putting money on her for a shock mid-season boot.
As for Kate Gosselin, I believe I've made my feelings perfectly clear: FREE TONY DOVOLANI!!!!!!
And for those of you who want to see what I'm on about, here are some vids:
Erin & Maks: ChaChaCha Foxtrot Waltz
Evan & Anna: Viennese Waltz Jive Quickstep
Niecy & Louis' Waltz
Nicole & Derek: Jive Quickstep (that is not a quickstep)
And because it's too damn good not to link to it, in this weeks results show Reba McEntire performed two songs, Dimtry Chaplin and Lacey Schwimmer performed a rumba to the second song, "Consider Me Gone". If you watch no other vid I've linked to in this post, watch this one. It is just completely amazing - fabulous, fabulous dancing! Consider Me Gone
