        Oh man, i saw a poll today where people vote on who should go home on Dancing With The Stars.  The result showed what i was fearing…the couple i have been rooting for, Marissa and Tony.  I really, really like the two of them together.  Sure, she didn’t start out with any great kind of dancing skills…but she has improved, immensely.  Tonight is the results show; don’t let Marissa go home. 

        However, from that one poll…it looks like she could actually be the one to go home as it was from viewer’s opinion.  That fact, plus the fact that the judges scored their two dances in a way that they ended up at the bottom of the four couples dance scores.  Bummer…i was hoping she would make it at least to the semi-finals… I know that she doesn’t have the technical skills of Kristi, or the flare of Christian, or the grace of Jason….but, she has personality, joy, and style of her own that is unparrelled.  Best of luck Tony and Marissa.   update:  Tony and Marissa were the ones to leave.  I for one will miss them.  So, next week the competitors will be Christian and Cheryl, Edyta and Jason, Kristi and Mark.  The semi-finals ….awesome season of dancing with the stars!

         It is the morning after; Shannon Elizabeth from Dancing With The Stars was let go from the competition.  It was sort of one of those shows where one minute it looked certain that one thing would happen and then something completely different changed the course.

          I was thinking that Shannon would be the one to go until Christian de la Fuente was injured; and then, i thought…well, maybe it was exactly what they said at first…a pulled/strained muscle.  Then when the show started up….the drama increased; and i second guessed myself. Ooops…they were building up the tension, insinuating that maybe the injury would put him out of the running.

      Finally, it was revealed that Christian had spoken to the doctors after an MRI and he needs to have surgery on his arm as he has a ruptured tendon in his bicep.  However, just when the audience thought…he was leaving…Christian announced that the doctor gave an ok to continue with the competition if he had been voted to stay. 

          Wow…i can’t imagine a doctor saying…it would be ok to continue to put that kind of strain on the arm if he was injured that badly.  Truthfully, why would someone want to risk permanent damage?  I mean, sure…Christian has worked hard to stay in the competition…but, please…this seems a bit serious.

       In any case, there it is…Christian was voted to stay and that meant that the bottom two competitiors were Shannon/Derek and my long shot Marissa/Tony.  I felt bad for Shannon she is mourning her loss.  She said that she made a lifelong friendship with Derek.   She seemed pretty sad…but, i also rejoiced that Marissa and Tony were given another week to display their wonderful teamwork.  Gotta love this show, dont ya think?

         Once again, it is anyone’s guess who is leaving Dancing With The Stars.  One week a couple will be praised up and down by the judges and then find themselves because of the audience voting down in the bottom of the competition.  This week who will wave TA TA on Tuesday on Dancing With The Stars?

        For the most part…the dancing is coming up a notch or two every week.  But, Monday evening…Christian de la Fuente injured his arm halfway through his and Cheryl’s dance.  This earned them a lower score because, as Carrie Ann Inaba said…we will only judge you on what we saw.  She did compliment him on being there for Cheryl when he was obviously in pain.

        Marissa and Tony outdid themselves and earned very nice scores by doing so.  Kristi was fabulous as usual…she and her partner Mark…really shine each time they perform.  Sometimes, i think they score her lower just because they feel that she is a bit skilled above the other competitors…the judges expect more out of her.

         Mario and Karina did a fine job.  The judges keep bringing the attention to Mario’s age…what does that have to do with anything.  I think he is doing a fine job keeping up with Miss Karina and her talents.

          Shannon Elizabeth and her partner Derek have graceful nice moments and then they seem to have some really awkward moments that cant be covered up.  I think Shannon’s time is coming to an end.  She probably would have already been gone except for Derek’s popularity.

        Jason and Edyta did a nice job…and for once…Edyta wore more clothing than normal for her usual performances on the show.  This was nice…you could concentrate on their dancing as opposed to her skin.  She is a wonderful dancer and the focus should be on her partner…not on her costume of the week.

          So…Tuesday evening we will all be glued to the television sets waiting to see who will be saying Ta Ta…ya’ll.

         Tuesday nite, that means someone is leaving Dances With The Stars television show. The dancing couples all seem to be getting in sync with each other and have started to show solid teamwork.

          I am worried it may be Marissa Janet Winokur…I very much enjoy watching her enthusiasm.  However, she did not do very well last night…so that probably means she is leaving…i believe she could do very well if she only has another week or two.

           Adam Carolla is a funny man.  He isn’t dancing as badly as i thought he would.  However, his sense of humor last night left a little to be desired.  I think he may just have ticked off the whole state of Utah with his comments about mormons and prostitutes & pimps.  Kind of not very funny Adam.  It could be Adam that leaves tonight…people in Utah (heavy mormon population) get votes too ya know Adam.  Maybe he wanted to leave…i dont know!

            Steve Guttenberg is a talented actor…and he is kind of a funny/wise guy also.  But he is a nice guy and his dancing has also improved.   He is in the bottom three as far as skill goes…so maybe it is Steve.  I think it will probably be Adam who goes though out of the three even though Adam has a larger fan base. 

            Marlee, Christian, Shannon Elizabeth, Priscilla Pressley…they are all i think favs and they each seem somewhat skilled in their previous dancing abilities. 

           The bad part of this season’s show is that everyone …and i mean everyone, is just so darn likeable.  Sad to see any of them go!  * Update:  I was wrong (not the first time) , it was Steve Guttenberg who left this week.  He did so much better this week…so….who knows what’s going to happen from week to week.  Sorry to see ya leave Steve!
