Let's chalk this one up to "I didn't see it coming."
Sure, Jack Wagner wasn't the best dancer of Season 14 of "Dancing with the Stars," but he wasn't exactly the worst. And I'm thinking he had a pretty vast fan base. However, when all was said and done, it was Wagner, Gladys Knight and Gavin DeGraw facing elimination on week 3 of this very intense season. In the end it was Wagner who graciously said his good-byes.
This season is a tough one because the celebs are proving to be a serious lot when it comes to their dancing prowess. And the judges have been handing out 9s and 10s like candy on Halloween. The dancing in many instances has been grand, but where do you go from here in terms of scoring as the season wears on?
In a BIG twist on the show's scoring procedures (much of it coming from yours truly over the years), host Tom Bergeron announced that for three weeks straight (after next week, that is) the bottom two couples each on each results show will compete in a dance-off for the judges who will then cast the deciding vote as to who goes home. In seasons past, the judging has come under great scrutiny when many less-than-great dancers went on in the competition while far superior contestants were sent packing after the judges' votes and viewer votes were combined.
Let's see how this new scoring strategy plays out.
Next Monday it's all about rock 'n' roll.
