Lance and Lacey Blew It!

After watching the finals of Dancing with the Stars last night, I have to say that Lance and Lacey blew it. What were they thinking doing a routine with absolutely no lifts in their free style?

I get that Lance was trying to be loyal to his roots and showcase them, but he needed to be taking care of the fan base that got him this far. You can bet there were way more than hip hop fans doing that voting. I'm pretty sure the shows demographics would show a much broader base than that. It was foolish for Lance and Lacey not to take that into account when choreographing their free style.

Lifts and wild moves are what has made the free style the favorite dance of the masses. They watch all season picturing their favorites dazzling their socks off and showcasing their new found expertise. While that hip hop routine might have wowed Lance's music fans it did nothing for those of us that love the wild element the free style brings. I'm afraid they killed off any chance they had for taking a run at Brooke. We'll see what the results show has to offer but my guess is that it'll be the pretty mom/model/emcee hands down.

Amen sistah! I was shocked when they chose that style dance and knew the nail was in the coffin so to speak. I miss having something to watch now. Also agree with you on poor Cloris. It must have been very embarrassing for some of those good dancers to get sent home before her.

I thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment earlier this evening. I do hope you picked up the awards. You have a great blog here!

Hmmmmmm.....I never watch that show. I don't see to have the time for much TV these days, working 2 jobs and caring for 33 cats! LOL I heard about Cloris' dancing escapade, though. I think everyone did. I didn't realize she was 82! Have to give her credit for trying. LOL

It's 46 degrees here in SC tonight. About normal for us this time of year. I'm ready for Spring and some green, though.
