Ok, too many goodies here to pass this one up. Bill Nye? Bill Engvall? Valerie Freaking Harper?

I think I may finally be watching this show.

I suspect we'll have to put up with snooki too as she'll bring drama

I've watched this for years.

The changes are interesting - no live band, the dancers bull pen on the floor. Interesting.

The judging tonight seems a bit amiss. JMO

Curious by this - how? From past shows, they were pretty spot on and actually this year the talent level seems to be much higher than in year's past, hence IMO, the higher scores.

Now that it's only on one night a week and the only night I'm usually free, I plan to watch.

We have been fans for a few years now. We can't believe that we like it, but we got hooked.
this year the talent level seems to be much higher than in year's past
I'll have to disagree here. Last season's cast was phenomenal. The last 3 finalists all deserved the mirror ball trophy! They were amazing.

I was hoping Bill Nye would do good, but, yes he seemed very awkward. I was hoping Snookole would be horrible 'cause I just don't care for her, but, I have to admit she was very good. Same with Elizabeth Berkley.

I was surprised by Jack Osbourne. Very good. I think I will be rooting for him. I was amazed by Amber Riley. She was very good. Loved her smile and attitude. I will be rooting for her, too.

Who do you all think will be going home next week? I would say Bill Nye, but I think he has a huge fan base.

it's only on one night a week and the only night
It is only going to be on one night a week? That will be great. I really didn't like having to devote 2 nights to DWTS.

I really like that the dancers don't have to run up the stairs and talk to Brooke this year. I couldn't stand the questions Brooke would ask. It just always felt awkward to me.

Snooki - love her or hate her, she wasn't bad. Brant will get the Mc Dreamy pre-teen vote, so he'll be there a while. Jack probably won't be there as a finalist but he shows promise as does Christina.

My top three are Corbin, Amber and Elizabeth - all three were very good.

Curious by this - how?

I think that contemporary dancing is much more open in technique that it is more styling. So to pit that against some doing Cha-cha-cha and I think Jack did a foxtrot is advantageous to those doing contemporary.
Well I personally was surprise that Amber scored so high. While she may have moved well and was appealing. I honestly didn't see much cha-cha-cha for her in that piece. I could clearly see Bill Nye attempting more cha-cha-cha even though it was awkward and Keyshawn's footwork seemed to be more merengue timing although his partner was doing cha-cha-cha. Amber was smooth but I didn't think it was worthy of all 9's.

I also think the Bill Nye will be going home too. Which is a shame my kids actually tuned in to watch him. I do have to say that he seemed very comfortable in his swing dancing seen during the intro video clips to his piece.

I didn't see it all but from what I saw I was impressed by Corbin the most. I think he will do quite well

They added contemporary a season or two ago, my guess - to offer something different and be a better match to the SYTYCD crowd of watchers.

ETA: - All the contestants will eventually do all the dances. They're not competing against each other against the dances, just against how well each does for their particular dance.

It was Karina's first ever contemporary dance, so you can see how much a fish out of water she seemed.

I think they've been practicing for only a couple of weeks. You'll see real improvement on holds, moves, etc., as people move on.

I think Nye will be around a couple of weeks yet, because he's quite popular. Once the others shake their nerves, I think you'll see improvement.

And yes, Leah - I thought she did a great job too!

Missed her first go around...

Just watched and loved it.

Cried the whole time Valerie Harper was on. I grew up watching her on TV and she was so gracious and full of joy on DWTS.

I agree that Keyshawn or Bill Nye will go home.

He was pretty awful. He has a huge fan base, though.

Love the banner and the sparkly mirror ball. Then I saw Tom Bergeron was hosting the thread. Very cool!

Thanks, MH, very fancy!

DS, Leah was fantastic this week. I am going to start rooting for team Leah.

Well it looks like Bill Nye got saved by his fans.

I think it was a decent elimination.

This year there is a big gap between the abilities of the celebrities.

Elizabeth Berkley, Corbin Bleu, Amber Riley definitely have an advantage with their dance experience. I don't care that it's not ballroom experience. They have the rhythm and musicality experience as well as the movement and flow.

At least Len was nicer to Bill Nye with his comments. No need to crush the guy's spirit Len. He is really NOT a dancer. Although he can swing!!

If you watched the emmy's or DWTS last night, you all know that Derek Hough won an emmy for his choreography. Here is a link to the dances he won the emmy for. I absolutely loved his "Walking on Air" choreography and it is fun to watch over and over again.

eta: the link, duh!

All three dance on that site was great in it's own right. I am most impressed by the speed and energy of Derek's Mambo.

It will be interesting if anyone on this season will be able to get that smooth on such a fast dance.

I didn't even realize he had tripped until Tyne said something/asked if he was ok. It looked like part of the dance.

Rescued from page 2.

I missed most of the show last night. My sister doesn't watch it and she called to find out about my meeting with Buddy Valastro from Cake Boss. He was doing a personal appearance in a store I just happened to be in.

I did see Amber, Valerie, Corbin and Brent.

Valerie messed up big time. I can't get over how lovely Tristan is with her and how gentle.
Carrie Ann's comment was spot on about how he partners Valerie.
Love me some Tristan!!

Lola...

I think it was Len that made the beautiful comment to Tristan...although Carrie could have said one too. Either way, it's true, he is so gentle with her and she's having the time of her life

And my girl Leah did GREAT!!!

It's too bad that Bill Nye was hurt, but I think he was the right choice to go home last night.

It was hard to watch Valerie struggle so much. She had such a great attitude when the judges were talking to her, though. Her partner is wonderful. I get teary with those two every week.

Yes, thanks DS, it was Len that praised Tristan.
He can be a sweetheart too when he wants to.

ETA: Is it Brent or Brant?

I was busy with Pigskin Picks issues, so I was hit and miss on who I saw.

Bill's "dance" was kind of funny, actually. Made me LOL and I really needed that.

I missed most of my favorites, though I did see Corbin. Bill E is getting pretty darned almost good! You can tell he really wants to go far.

I wish I’d seen Valerie, I guess I’ll have to hope it’s recorded.

I will say, the new format is very confusing. Having everyone dance just to boot a couple later seems almost cruel. Why they don’t just tell who’s eliminated right away and let people dance more relaxed is beyond me.

My only comment from last night was that some of those women need to be better actresses! When the camera panned across them during other's dances the looks on their faces were so catty!

Awww Valerie.
I think she knew she wouldn't last long in the competition.

Poor Tristan. When will they give him a contender?

What a sweet guy he is and I love his accent.

I thought Julianne did a great job. She always has some tip or note to give the celebrity.

Loved that they told Bill E. he was safe right after his dance. He cried!!!

Exactly, nik.

That said, I really didn't know who she was or what she does, so perhaps her fan base wasn't there? But boy, oh boy, did I love her song!

This week always brings tears when they reveal their stories. Have to admit, haven’t been a fan of Brandt’s, but his story was incredible. Oh, and gee…I wonder what Leah was talking about?

I thought Amber did a great job – Snooki too – damn she’s a little thing, isn’t she? Corbin was his usual spot on self – what a great big bro he is!

I thought Elizabeth’s whole thing was dorky – then again, I had to put up with years of Saved by the Bell thanks to AJ so I guess I’m kind of belled out.

I really think Bill and Jack have improved tremendously and their memories were tear jerkers too. WTH?!!!

It's a mystery, isn't it? I love her no matter what!!

And snookie...I have to give the girl major credit. I thought she'd be one of those that complains a lot or just doesn't try, but honestly, he's doing a really good job!! I relieved to see her take it seriously. Maybe having a baby and becoming a mom changed her for the better

Didn't expect Snookie to go home tonight. I really didn't "like" her, but I have come to appreciate her a little and I feel she is/was clearly a better dancer than Bill.

I like Bill, he is very likable, but he really is very stiff. However, I have seen some improvement. I feel he was the one that needed to go.

t/j Moo, that is so cool that you got to go to a class given by Louis Van Amstel. What did you think? Was it great and is he tiny? For some reason I get the impression that he is just little.

I rewound Corbin and Karina's dance and had to watch it twice. I find myself up in my seat this season. The level of dancing is amazing, IMO.

The group dances! Incredible!

I agree that Bill should have gone before Snooki, but I do love his spirit.

I think Snooki did a better job then I ever expected, but frankly, she complained - a lot - about how tired she was whenever they would do the behind the scenes interviews.

I can't help but think that's partly what did her in, especially when you compare her to Bill who despite not being an obvious talent like Amber or Corbin, gives it his all and remains very positive throughout the process.

Corbin's dance was simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

I agree AJ. I think Snookie was far more dedicated than I would have imagined, but her complaining was more than anyone else.

You just have to love Bill's huge heart...he is so sincere with his efforts, I really like him. Plus I've always thought he was super cute

*spoiler alert*

I can't believe Bill lasted another week. I do agree with DeeplyScared that Bill Engvall is "super cute" " , but Brant is/was way, way easy on the eyes. Plus, better dancer than Bill. Sorry, DS, ya gotta face it!

How cool that you got to tweet with Leah, DS. I feel she is doing a great job. I do like her a lot, too. I really don't feel like I have a favorite this year, though.

Yes, it did seem very low energy last night. Cher looked freaky to me. What did she say that was bleeped out? I'll have to do some research on that.

If anyone is interested this is what they censored Cher saying:
"I thought it was great and I thought it was rough. I like the rough part of it and I liked you winning. And, you know, I just [lost train of thought, nervous laughter and chatter between everyone] I like, I like when women are strong and don't take shit, you know."
These were her comments to Elizabeth and Val after their Jazz dance to Cher's song "Bang, Bang".

I love Cher as a showbiz icon, but didn't quite see why they brought her in as a judge. Ballroom dance is not her area of expertise. It seemed pretty obvious she waited for Carrie Ann to vote, and then typically voted 1 point higher.

I really don't think I can bear to watch Bill dance another week. I like him as a person, but this is about dancing. It is so uncomfortable to watch him. Even Bill and Emma looked dismayed that they weren't eliminated.

Corbin was amazing. Loved Leah's trio dance. Jack Osbourne is the big surprise for me.

I think I looked like Len when they announced who was going home.

This was the second time I rewound Corbin's dance to watch it twice. LD said when he's dancing you can't tell who the pro is and who the star is. I agree.

He's so talented.

Moo, I had the same face. I thought I was dreaming because I was dozing at the end, missed the results and had to rewind. So when they said Val and Elizabeth where eliminated I did a am I still sleeping?

Corbin's trio dance was just amazing. Jazz definitely plays to his strengths, but the choreography, their timing, every thing was just perfect. Very impressive and tons of fun to watch.

Which, of course, means he'll be the next one eliminated.

Late to the party.

Shocked for sure. All I can surmise is her fan base wasn't there. Bill's obviously is. Plus, I believe he's on tour as well (at least was for one episode), so he's probably getting votes that way too. All that said, she took the elimination with incredible grace.

Bill's dance(s) were both very hard to watch. He seemed so out of his element, especially with the two Katy Perry's dancing around him. Awkward. I was watching his wife's face the whole time, trying to figure out if she was amused or not. She's a tough one to read. My vote is not so much on the amusement.

I thought Leah really brought it. She has come around and is starting to do very well. Good for her!

I think Jack is in the "f-it" stage - if he makes it, great - if not, he'll be just fine. His attitude is exceptional.

Corbin's trio dance was breathtaking. He embodied the theme and did an amazing job.

I am so relieved that Bill actually did improve this week. However, Leah is better than Bill. Disappointed that she is gone.

I almost don't think it is fair whoever has Derek for a partner because his choreography is just so freaking unbelievably awesome. That being said, Amber is fantastic.

I was thinking...."oh no, it's going to be Leah"
Then I thought DS is going to be sad.
I think she became a fantastic dancer and was very gracious to Tony in her speech.

So sorry, DS.

IMO, she didn't deserve to go. Bill has to have one hell of a fan base. Don't be too surprised if he takes the trophy based on his popularity, because if it had to stand on his dancing, he'd be out.

Saved this from page 3.

Can't wait for the finale tonight.

I'm kind of hoping Jack will win.
I think he may be the first to be eliminated if Bill's fanbase so far is any indication.

Amber an Corbin have so much dance background it's really quite a wide gap between the dancers and non dancers.

Great night of dance watching last night!

I'm hoping for Amber, though Jack is a close second.

I thought Jack really redeemed himself in the free dance after that jive.
I'm really hoping he wins as he is the only real "amateur" left.

I am hoping Jack wins. It touched my heart seeing him cry tears of happiness after his last dance. His mom looked so proud.

What I liked best about his free dance was it was really a showcase for what he's learned and it was focused on just dance. The others, though good as well, just seemed so acrobatic - not a whole lot of dancing there.

Plus, if he wins, he one-ups Kelly, which would kind of be cool.

I really will be happy with which ever finalist wins tonight. I just needed it to not be Bill. I mean, I like him, he put his heart into it, and he improved a great deal, but it wouldn't have been right for him to win.

I agree with NIK and am happy with the outcome. Although our cable went out last night and I missed the whole damn show!

I'm glad Amber won but I it would have been nice to see Jack pull it off.

OMG could they have dragged that out any longer?

It was ridiculous to drag that out for two hours. One hour or 90 minutes max would have been more than enough time.

I would have been happy if any of the last three won. If Jack won that would have been the cherry on top, he really came the furthest, I feel.

Was anyone else absolutely in love with The Fox performance? I was so impressed with Foxing Awesome the first time they performed it, and to have Ylvis come in and join the dance was fantastic. I'm also in love with Brant's handsome face and was so happy to see him on the finale

I'm not thrilled with how much audience voting played into the overall outcome this season, but this has been one of the most entertaining seasons I've ever seen.
