I t was great when Len compared Billy Ray's shoes to Master P's. Master P was the worst as I think he was the only contestant to get 2's and 3's.

Yep, although I didn't think she'd have this much trouble molding Ian into a good dancer. He's a lot more stiff than I figured he'd be...he has trouble with the rhythms too.

The judges actually make me scratch my head on several occasions.

One such moment was last night when one of them (Carrie Ann?) said that John Ratzenberger was the best "older" dancer they've ever had.

Hello? J. Peterman made the FINALS in the first season. I'd say he was quite a bit better than J.R. I'd also put George Hamilton above him too. John's better than Jerry Springer though.

But the judges told MP straight up that he sucked. They are praising Billy and acting like he's ok.

I don't think MP went quite as far, but close. And Billy is at least trying. Sure, he's "like a crazy bear lost in the swamp." But he's at least having fun with it, and working hard. I think he went this far because so many others were bad as well. The model & Miss America didn't seem to even try. Maybe they thought they were too hot to get cut. WRONG!
Billy or maybe Cliffy should go home tonight. Poor Cliffy looked like he ran out of gas last night. But he's another who is putting in a good effort. Points for that.
Remember, Cliffy was another last minute fill in. Sure beats MP.

Yeah Carry Ann gets a little goofy sometimes. I hate when she morphs into the contestants personality. All of that --You go girl! phony crap.

I think the Hannah Montana "pink cellphone" vote is what is keeping Billy Ray around.

Who else are they going to vote for on this show? Ono maybe. But Billy Ray has the "in" with that crowd.

I've noticed these inconsistancies for some time (not just this season) and have always wondered if they were intentional (some grand plan to keep certain dancers around) or just that the judges are missing things honestly.

I'll second all of this.

They've really hammered Apolo the last two weeks after he got that perfect score on the Samba. I think the judges are feeling a little guilty for that score because it was really Julianne that earned it, not Apolo. Apolo's performance was really only worth 9's on that dance, but Julianne's 11+ performance pulled it up.

I saw Sirens, just couldn't remember the name.

The Bridget Jones Diary example is actually much better than the examples I came up with. It's especially shocking when you look at her in the two BJD movies verses Chicago and realize that the Chicago was filmed in between the two BJD movies.

But, it turns out Arch and the others were correct. Willa's using a fat suit and makeup (I caught part of another show that her getting the makeup applied and showing the fat suit on the hanger).

Are you kidding me? There are long lines at phone booths in all the trailer parks. As long as there are no twisters, those votes will keep on coming.

I've only watched the first dance so far (will catch the rest tomorrow), but I've got to agree with some of the other posters that the judges this week were just whack! Ali's first dance was stiff, unimpressive, and she had a noticable goof at the beginning. And they give her 10's for that? WTF?? And, Len was unmercifully hard on Apolo. In fact, I didn't think they came off the meds until Joey at the end of the first dance routine. Are they just trying to "even things out" by knocking Apolo down a few pegs? Are they trying to make sure at least one girl survives 'till the finals? Usually, I think they're pretty much on target, but this last week - ugh.

He looked like he was certain that he was leaving, and then upset that he wasn't. Barring a huge turnaround in his performance Billy Ray should be gone next week and the real contest begins.

It was sad to see JR go in leiu of Billy Ray, but not unexpected. JR just didn't have the fan base (pink cellphones and trailer parks, or some combination thereof) voting for him that Billy Ray does. All things being even (both had the 2 bottom scores by far), Billy Ray's votes were sure to carry him way over.

The bunny hop thing was cute though.

Julianne apparently had one in her dance. I never noticed it, but when they cut back to her from the judges at one point, she was holding her dress up over her chest. A few cuts later, she apparently had tied it around her neck and wasn't holding it anymore.

I think they're getting a little goofy with the results show. I mean, "DanceCenter" (with Jerry Rice, Kenny Mayne and Len Goodman)? A blatant SportsCenter ripoff - and not really that funny.

The Jimmy Kimmel segment? Heck, the featured dance was the cha-cha and didn't even show the steps? The bed/dreaming sequence was funny (Jimmy dreaming about Cheryl, Karina and Kim repeating "cha, cha, cha" ; the studio guard dreaming about... Jerry Springer, Ian Zering and John Ratzenberger! ; and Tom Bergeron in the same bed). What a hang-dog expression on Tom after that bit!

And the music talent was... Meatloaf? Man they're scraping the bottom of the barrel! I mean the shows are averaging about 18 million viewers and they've already gone thru all the top level talent who want to do this show?

What's next, Brittney Spears? (Yes, she did a show in San Diego last night, at the House of Blues - made all the local news coverage).

I'll be honest, I don't think I've ever watched an entire results show of DWTS. As long as I can remember, we have always skipped/FF to the end. Last night, we tuned in around 945pm and caught all that silly filler with Jimmy Kimmel, and we now see what we're "missing."

Right....It was no big deal. When they finished their dance they went over to Tom and the judges' area. At that point it was obvious that the top of her outfit had fallen in front of her. She still had a top on but it was very sheer. She realized that it was hanging in front of her so she grabbed it and held it up over her chest. When the camera cut to Tom she tried to tie it around her neck but she still had to hold it up with her hands over her chest. It wasn't fixed properly until she went off camera to go backstage for the Sam banter.

Yeah, the front of the dress was several layers thick. When she did the move where she falls backward and Apolo catches her neck, then when he pulled he back up he pulled the top layers lose and only the sheer bottom layer was left.

Laila's encore dance last night reminded me that I'll always associate that song with the movie _Brazil_.

I kept waiting for some black clad commandos to drop down from the ceiling, toss canvas bags over them, clamp a shackel around their necks and drag them off.
