Okay, second dance I didn't want to end. Beautiful. 


So great to see Emma able to strut her stuff without restriction.

I think Emma is doing what they told Peta to do with Nick.....Emma keeps it classic and gives him choreography that lets him shine!!

I liked it, too.  Rashad has a lot of determination and will do much better with next 

week's dance.  I'm happy he made it to Week 4. Very Happy

Nancy and Artem set the bar a tad too high. It wasn't bad at all, it just didn't compare. Btw: when I saw the setting and the costumes, I thought Bill Engvall would turn up to serve some cheeseburgers...

   Bill and Emmas cheeseburger tango was my favorite dance of theirs!!
Rashads was not at all a bad dance, I think he had set the bar really high for himself in the past weeks, maybe not his best, but I enjoyed it!!

I would love to see Bill visit the ballroom again!  Maybe Bill can even meet up with David since David seems to share some similarities with him.

David joined DWTS at a younger age than Bill plus he is an athlete, so he does have the ability to better handle more complex choreography.  David is off to a good start so far.  We are now entering Week 4, and I look forward to seeing what he and Lindsay will do next.  Like Bill, David shares a fun personality that viewers respond to plus a willingness to embrace the journey and give it his best shot.  As an actor and comedian, Bill knew how to sell his dances--both comedic and serious.  Unfortunately Bill wasn't given enough opportunities for more serious dancing, so I hope David doesn't meet the same fate of just being given light-hearted material.  I want to see him do a serious Tango/Argentine Tango.

I agree with most of what you say, but I do think there are some athletes who just can't dance.  Remember Diana Nyad?  I realize David is younger, but I also think David is more of a natural dancer.  Wouldn't Emma have given Bill more complex choreography if she thought he could handle it?  I don't know if it was just an age thing.  I liked Bill's personality, but I don't think he had the natural dancing ability David has.

My last David and Bill thoughts:  Yes there have been some athletes in the past that found the process difficult.  Even though it seemed on the surface that James was a natural dancer last season, he actually wasn't.  It took him extra hours and most of the week before he could get the nuances the dances required.  That he was able to execute it so well when it counted is what made him so unique in addition to his personality and his chemistry with Sharna.  

I think David, like Bill has the ability to sell his performance, but I think it's a bit early to say that David is a natural dancer.  But the potential is there, and I agree that he will be a better dancer than Bill. Lindsay is gradually ramping it up for David as he is experiencing dance styles like the quickstep and cha cha and learning how to perform in front of a television audience.  And there may be more lifts in their future since he was able to briefly lift Lindsay in their Jazz number.  Bill was probably not a natural dancer and perhaps had a limit to how complex his dances could be.  But Bill worked hard, had fun, and proved that he could dance and deliver it to the best of his ability even if it wasn't technically great.  In the end it was that effort plus his partnership with Emma that many viewers wanted to continue seeing.

That left me speechless and misty eyed. Rashad and Emma were a poem played out on the dance floor. Spectacular.

     The problem I have with guys getting Contemporary is I keep comparing them to the Divine Mr. M and Peta and Mr. M always wins. 
   Having said that,  a perfect dance for Rashad to get on this night, he was able to show lots of emotions,  and being an athlete Emma could put in all of those great lifts!  Great job......but I did miss that gorgeous smile of his.
    When he went over to give his Dad and Mom a hug I wanted to give them one too!!! Hugs

I thought Rashad and Emma's Contemporary was incredible, and I almost lost it when Rashad went to hug his father.  What a great job by Emma on the choreography.

They were the best slow dance of the night and I'm not usually crazy about slow dances.

Sister, we know that The Divine Mister M and Peta occupy a whole other realm than other dancers! When I rewatch their contemporary or any of their dances they still awe me!

I don't have a problem with the guys. I have a problem with contemporary. You hardly ever hear technical citicism from the judges. It's all based purely on emotion and mostly overscored in relation to other styles. I've seen it happen twice on our show as well lately. Yes, Rashad did the pressage (better than James M. imo.) Yes, Emma did great. But it was the story behind it that earned the tens- Len got it right.
