I've seen every season and I can't recall any other season where they filled time on MONDAY night with a musical guest. To the best of my memory, they've always either cut back to either an hour and a half or just one hour or added group dances or made everyone dance two dances.
I really don't want to even imagine what a group dance would look like with this bunch or how terrible they'd be having to learn two dances, so I guess it's better to have a music act rather than more dancing.
IMHO the producers have wrecked this show so badly by going for "controversial" [in lieu of using the words I'd really like to use] contestants that they are no longer able to get even B-list and C-list talent to sign on to a show which is increasingly cultivating controversy instead of just being a nice two hour escape from all the crap IRL. Instead they've decided to drag all the crap from real-life into the ballroom and rub all our faces in it for three hours a week.
Looking at the ever-shrinking ratings, it seems they've managed to kill the golden goose. It's a shame this show is going to go down in such a sour and negative manner.
The only highlight for me last night was Anna's incredible body. How the heck does she seem to get more buff every season?
How about we just kick everyone except JR and Riki off the show tonight and run the finals next week?
