Flotsam and jetsam from Tuesday

Seems the Web is abuzz with news that some folks were unhappy with the "children's competition" on the week four results show. Tiny dancing tots, two couples to be exact, danced their hearts out in front of millions of us viewers. One duo was told they were "out" of the competition; the other moves on to face a new challenger next Tuesday night. Yep, these kids are "seasoned veterans" supposedly of dance competitions so "losing" shouldn't be traumatic. But was it right to make them face the music in such a way in front of millions of viewers? Why wasn't it just a demonstration dance, rather than a judged performance?

Other "Dancing" news you can use..... Julianne Hough's country music album, "That Song in My Head" (Mercury/Nashville) is due out May 20. The title rack is already getting tons of airplay. The 19-year-old is also slated to sing the National Anthem at the Indy 500 on May 25. And, the bubbly dancer-singer hits the road for her first tour starting June 11. The headliner? Brad Paisley.

Heard Tuesday night: Priscilla Presley was penalized one point by the judges for performing a lift during her Viennese waltz. La Presley murmured "I love feeling my legs in the air." There you have it.
