|Maks and Kirstie - I like them!|
|Kirsty may be old and fat but she has style and Maks is the Max|
I didn't get a chance to watch the whole show because I was too tried from having to go into work on short notice for a co-worker who had a family crises. I DVR the show so I did get a chance to see some of it. Unfortunately, I saw those two trolls, Mark Ballas and Louis Van Amstel dance. Those two "it's all about me" guys annoy me to no end. They are NOT THE STARS. Apparently no one clued them in on that fact. Mark Ballas especially gets under my skin because he hogs all the limelight from his 'star' partner, Chelsea Kane. She's nice enough to let him get away with it. Mark is one of those short, ugly, troll-like guys who think they're all THAT. He's short and ugly..and short. But the gals (and some gay guys no doubt) go for that kind of troll. Same with Louis Van Amstel. I know he can't help the way he was born but what's with that forehead anyway? His forehead reminds me of Frankenstein's monster. Louis is also short. I always thought a great dancing partner was a tall, elegant man, not one of these short scene stealers.
I'm told that the short guys are the best dancers. Really? I don't see it. Since when? I think Maks (Kirstie's partner) and Dmitry are pretty damn good too. Plus they don't hog the spotlight from their 'star' partner. They're not selfish and self aggrandizing like Mark Ballas and Louis Van Amstel.
Louis will be gone tonight. He outta there. Unfortunately, the judges fell for Mark's choreography and gave him high marks last night. That's another thing that annoys me. Where's the dancing? We all know that professional dancers know choreography but how about some dancing? If we wanted to see choreography we would rent one of the old Busby Berkley musicals.
So here is my take on the dancers last night:
|Who is the star here? Ask Mark, he'll tell you. Smug ass.|
|This is Ballas' getup from last week. WTF? What a frigging doofus.|
|This is dancing?|
|I'll say it again, "This is dancing?" It looks like "drag around The Star )"|
|Chris and Cheryl - I like Chris - he is obviously having the time of his life|
OMIGOD! Did you see Chris 'strut' the dance floor on his knees like a Russian Cossack last night? I couldn't find an image of that on the Internet today but that image is imprinted on my brain - at least for a few days. SEXY!
|Short Louis with the Big Head 'dancing' with Chelsea. Really? This is dancing?|
|The always elegant Petra and manly Dimtry (Louis and Mark could take a cue from Dimtry how a real man should dance with a star)|
|Oh no, here we go again. "This is dancing?"|
|Ralph and Karina - always enjoyable to watch - they'll probably win|
|Who knew Ralph Macchio was this good? I didn't.|
|Romeo and Chelsie - I was all prepared to dislike this rapper but I have to admit he's won me over with his class|
|Hines and Kym - always good - they'll be in the finals|
