Let's just call it "What a crock, part II."
Honestly, after tonight's scores, could the judges make it any more personal?
They want Ty gone,and granted, he's not in the same league as the other four remaining dancers, but could the judges be a little more obvious about it?
Melissa's samba had an awkward solo at the very beginning, and yet the judges didn't even mention it on the way to giving her a perfect "30" for what really wasn't that spectacular of a samba (look back at a few really great, fun sambas this season). Yet, Gilles' "opening" solo of his rhumba was labeled quite awkward, on the way to his score of 27. Give me a break!.
Okay Len, Okay Bruno.... Melissa will undoubtedly be back next week. But do you have to be so cruel to Ty to send your message home to viewers: "Don't vote for Ty"? He's made it quite far in the competition, and at the very least deserves the judges' respect. I can honestly say, I rooted all season for Ty, not because I thought he could win, but because he embodied what this show was all about way back in season one: taking folks COMPLETELY out of their element and turning them into respectable dancers. He may not end up with the mirrorball trophy, but Ty Murray is a winner when it comes to dancing.
Still don't know what Lil Kim was thinking with her salsa or her Viennese waltz. This is no time to make the number of mistakes she made throuhgout the routines. Her startling scores of 25 and 27 could really jeopardize her chance at a final four spot. And Gilles, what has happened? His over-danced rhumba left me (and the judges) shaking our heads. What should have been a chance at another 30, wound up a 27, and cost him the lead in tonight's competition. Shawn was equally impressive but again, stupid judgement mistakes were made in the choreography of her quick step routine, costing her a chance at a 30; she had to settle for a 27. She did come back with her 29 for a sizling paso doble.
Tomorrow night's results show is anybody's guess. The competition going into next week's semi-finals is just out-of-this-world intense. I'm predicting Ty goes home Tuesday night, leaving Melissa, Lil Kim, Shawn and Gilles set for the greatest semi-finals in the show's history.
