I look forward to it. Also glad the results show is going to be shorter.

Good thing the Curmudgeon will be away for this theme after the spiel he delivered about keeping it ballroom. This one appears to be custom tailored for gymnast Laurie.

I'm glad they came up with a new theme for dancing.  I wonder what it takes the place of.

Maybe one of the "Idols" nights? Last fall they had both a musical idols night and a personal idols night.

Disney night is only in the Spring, and I am afraid that the "tearjerker night" is still expected.  The lawyers are working on the song requests.  I also wouldn't mind losing that one, but the Disney night is still a favorite.

Maks and Amber have been given a song from Zumanity.  Two erotic dances in a row?  I call foul.  Sure, she's a weak dancer right now out of the group left, but this gives her no chance at all to redeem herself.

I thought Ryan was also a weak dancer but it's hard to tell since Cheryl isn't having him do much.

I agree, Glitter.  That's why I didn't say that Amber was the "weakest" dancer left.  She has company.  Both of them have their elegant moments, too.  They aren't complete trainwrecks.  Every single person on this cast who leaves will be leaving without having fulfilled their potential, I think.  It's going to be a matter now of how fast folks improve rather than if they are able to improve at all.

Hey the show is doing what it always does, slotting people into the role they want them to be.  Amber, slightly slutty, Laurie, sweet and innocent little princess, Terra, inspirational, Maureen, nostalgia, Marilu, aging actress but in great shape. Calvin filling the football player requirement. Ryan, the doofus who requires forgiveness and redemption. Not sure how they saw James, probably as the good looking guy for the season and I think he fooled them with his great personality and dancing talent. DWTS is nothing if not predictable.

     I agree since a few people are grossed out by her, and uncomfortable watching her.

Since they have a Tango I hope Max goes traditional  ... he is very good with classic dances.

   Does anyone remember the celeb that got stuck on a wire or zipline or something like that during rehearsals? Was it Alfonso?   This Cirque show made me think of it.

I think it was Alfonso, sis. Poor guy. Good thing he has such an amazing sense of humour and could laugh about it.

    I found it. Witney and Alfonso were rehearsing for their Gotham ChaChaCha and the zipline went off the rail leaving him hanging.

    Have fun everyone on Cirque night!!  I'd say 'break a leg' but, well you know Crying or Very sad   So I'll go with Good Luck , be safe and watch out for flying aerialists!!! Scared

I agree with you. Wonder why they are doing this to her. There have been much worse ppl on here (Playboy, etc)!

The Miami Herald described the dances to come this week as "choices" that the pros made. i.e., Maks chose Zumanity, Derek chose Ka....  I wonder if that is true.

I think the only freedom they have is choosing one out of two. Which often means to pick pest or cholera.

I don't know, Deadie...  I am guessing here, but Cirque has a show at Disney World and Disney and Cirque have a close business relationship, I think.  Based upon how many different Cirque shows are going to be represented tomorrow, it seems like the whole Cirque franchise was there for them to choose from, and that would mean carte blanche song clearance for anything in their music catalog.  The only other time they get that kind of freedom is on Disney night.
