You are right. There is no "sparkle" this season as there has been in the past. Carolla was having fun and at least did bring some humor to the show. But it in the end, it's the dancing that matters, so he had to go. I thought Jason was great and deserved the 29. At least he has the charisma and personality that Kristi seems to be lacking. I gotta agree with judge Len Goodman, all her dances have a "sameness" to them in terms of emotion and musicality.
Should be interesting to see how next Monday's dances go.
