If you're talking about their reaction, then yes I agree. They should have handed out hankies to everyone. I think the producers are probably slapping Bruno for extending that freestyle dance invitation to Brandy.

There have always been better dancers booted off the show. The most famous was that Disney chick from a few years ago. This isn’t new.

I mean there is obviously little doubt that Palin is going to win no mater how badly she does next week so why bother with watching?
good luck with that. And BP will not win.

One of the weakest seasons but it has kept my interest with this drama. That's what counts.
This show seems to lose "a couple" of viewers every year but always gains "several" new ones too. There are people I know today that either never heard of the show a few seasons ago, or wouldn’t be caught dead watching it but now they’re all regular viewers. The viewing in my home has steadily gone down to now (with a DVR) about a half hour total a week, if that much.

1. Maks was very gracious about the result and the voting method the show uses.
2. Bristol has improved very much; her dances this week were very good.
3. Jennifer has always been the favorite to win, and she still should.
4. Bristol and Kyle cannot be blamed for the fact that people vote for them over the better dancers. Both kids have been good examples of how to deal with such a circumstance...just express thanks.
