Excellent idea.  Maybe she will try the Biles -- a skill names after Simone where she does a double half-layout with a half twist into a blind landing. OK.. Maybe not.  :-)

Next Spring, we can encourage Simone to do it for her Freestyle!

Its actually easy for Simone.  She does it for her 2d tumbling pass.  In fact all 4 of her passes are harder than most people's first.
Do we know for certain that Simone is going to do DWTS next spring?  I had not heard.

Simone told the producers that she will do the show next Spring, and on Twitter, Sasha and Simone made a deal to be paired.   Until the contracts are signed, nothing is definite, but why would the producers not go ahead with it?  I can't think of a reason, so I'm thinking of it as a done deal.

Considering the Willy Wonka theme of that dance, I'd like to ask, what's your favorite kind of candy?

For me, it might be Snickers, or even Valomilks.

Wonderful tonight and Laurie looked like such a little sweetheart. I always knew Val is just a big soft marshmallow deep down!

I've always loved the song Pure Imagination, and Laurie and Val did such a lovely dance to it.  This may be my favorite dance by them.

It was certainly perfect to give her a push back to the top. It was just almost to sweet for Halloween. It had more of a Disney Night vibe.

An AT to Chicago's Cell Block Tango. This can be Laurie's most important routine after the freestyle. She has to be able to embody a character that is very alien to her: a sexually experienced woman who is an unrepentant cold-blooded killer. Val of course choreographed an AT with a criminal female character for another 16-year-old, Zendaya. But , despite her age, Zendaya was an experienced actress. I hope that Laurie can sink her teeth into the character. If she's able to do it, Val may gain a new respect and appreciation for Laurie that may translate into the last routines.

This will also be a chance for Val to use the acrobatic skills of Laurie. Val has never been partnered with a gymnast and he needs to start exploring how to include her amazing skills into routines. Waiting for the freestyle may be too late for him.

Well, the sxually experienced woman thing is well out of Laurie's realm.  But the cold-blooded killer, there may be some analogies to her gymnastics training.  Total focus, keep emotion of of it, be fierce.  I think she can pull it off.

The AT is normally one of Val's strongest dances. Technically I don't expect any problems at all. The character though- the absence of emotion, like in her sport, will not be enough. She has to portray something beyond her imagination; so good luck with that.
@bailadora: let's not forget Zendaya's AT was part of the side-by-side challenge, and she had three pros (Val, Maks, and Anna) to coach her.

I think she can do it.  The musical and movie seem like comedy anger if that makes sense.

The girl has good mimicking skills;  if she has something to copy, like a video, she'll blow folks away.

To get into character, Laurie should binge-watch "How to get away with murder" (it's an ABC series after all

I have no problem with that. She can be a sinner, and she can be a saint. Both equally effective.

Peta plays the role of an Argentine Tango "bitch" extremely well, and I think that is what Bruno was referencing.  She can credibly look like a woman who could ruthlessly seduce a guy for whatever she needs and cast him off when she's done with him. In fact, I think she does that act better than any other woman on the show.

     You said it better than I did .....not Peta personally, but what she can portray.

She can portray it, but, yes, not Peta personally.  She is still likable even when she plays evil.  I guess I just wouldn't use the term bitch for her.  That's Bruno for you.
