… the direction DWTS is taking of late. It's more about show and less about dance. I am sometimes a bit annoyed with it too TBH.
I agree, but apparently the producers believe (perhaps correctly) that that's what brings in viewers and advertising dollars. It would be much less expensive to stage straight renditions of the dance styles, but this stuff continues, so clearly they consider it money well spent. (I'd have to think that moreover at least some of the pros would prefer to create and teach choreography that isn't so convoluted.)
"Liquid Crystal Display" isn't the only LCD in television.
