    I remember a few years back when Sara Evans was one of the "Stars". Thanks to Tom DeLay and his minions, she kept getting voted forward - until she withdrew because of a sudden divorce. Don't remember who was cheating on who in that marriage.

    Anyway, it seems that there is a concerted campaign going on now for one particular dancer. I read on another board that there are website links and all.

    If that is true - it's so wrong. I would withdraw rather than win like that. Or maybe I'm too old fashioned - thinking one should win on merit

    Well, I think the winner ultimately chosen has a lot to do with talent...but a lot to do with fan base, too. There often seems to be one who really doesn't have the talent that manages to get to the finals. It says a lot for their fan base, loyalty is a big deal on this show. I remember when it was Mya vs Donnie Osmond...I wanted Mya to win, but knew Donnie Osmond had a bigger fan base. So, I wasn't completely shocked when he won. Anyway...how long do you have to wait on this thread before you can actually say names? I feel silly beating around the bush. :/

    Well, I am in the last time zone at least in the US. Is there even anyone after us in the world?? LOL
    I am very upset and angry about tonight. Almost so upset that I don't want to watch the show anymore. And it's not because of who went home, but who didn't. But I will continue to watch, only because it gives me something to talk to my mom about and a co-worker. Plus, it's over soon. Sigh....

    Well Brandy was my very favorite so I am sorry to see her go. I am not mad, I think Briston has a vulnerability that appealed to the viewers, it did to me, I have a daughter her age and I think she did rise to the occasion. I don't think she was a better dancer than Brandy though obviously.

    I understand Bristol is a great person and all, but she is not the best dancer. This is a DANCE competition and it angers me to see people advance just because of popularity. But I guess all of these types of shows are that way. Sigh...why do I even watch them then? Because I'm a TV junkie, that's why!

    I thought Bristol deserved to be in the semi finals, but not the finals. :/ Her technique is usually really good, her performance is what I think should have sent her home this week. Brandy is a better dancer and performer, I don't think anyone can argue that. But, I don't say too much about any of it, because I have only voted a couple times since I started to watch the show (when Sabrina Bryan was on).

    You know, I thought of that after I posted that. I went to bed and remembered.

    Wow, DWTS has a lot of drama going on lately. Anyone keeping up with the
    Facebook rants and the name calling going on with the Palin daughter,Willow?

    I don't do Facebook, or any of that type of site. I did hear about that incident - how can we not, it's all over the place. When I see or hear about teens/young kids mouthing off like that, I simply say - consider the source. I know I'm going to sound like an old lady, but if kids today had parents who truly cared and spent quality time with them, I doubt there would be half the crap going on.

    I read in the newspaper yesterday that the production company might re-look at the voting process for the show based upon the most recent results.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Oh, gosh no, I don't do Facebook either. I meant that it's hard to avoid
    the drama news when it is covered in all the major news outlets.

    I was thinking of the strangeness of Palin announcement of a possible
    run for the presidency & on the same day her daughter is swearing like a
    sailor in a public forum. Strange world we live in.
