Favorite Couples: Jennifer & Derek, Brandy & Maks, Kyle & Lacey.  Jennifer and Brandy are the best dancers but Kyle has improved a great deal and he’s always entertaining.  Loved Brandy & Maks’ Waltz, Jennifer & Derek’s Rumba, Kyle & Lacey’s Jive, Kurt & Anna’s Cha Cha Cha.

InstaDance: Okay, when I first heard they were doing this to the celebrities, I was annoyed—I thought it was too much pressure to throw at people who are not professional dancers.  That was before practically every couple came out and nailed the performance.  Maybe it actually lessened the pressure because they knew they didn’t have time to make it perfect so they just threw themselves into the dance and had fun???  Kurt surprised me the most with the InstaDance–he did remarkably well.

Who’s Going Home? Bristol?  She has improved dramatically as the weeks have progressed–she is actually showing some personality as she dances and I didn’t know if she was ever going to relax enough for that to happen.  She works hard and she seems nice enough.  She’s not performing as well as the others though and I hate to see more capable dancers leaving the competition.  I particularly hate it because I’m not convinced that people are voting for Bristol–I think they are voting for her mom and that annoys me.

Other Thoughts: I may be a little less attracted to Maks now.  The judges wanted to see more dancing (every pro has heard this at one time or another)—accept it and move on.
