As a former dancer (9 years of ballet, 4 of tap, and lots of fun doing country swing in my younger days), I am a fan of both Dancing With The Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. This season of DWTS has been the best yet, but very odd. Some fantastic dancers went home way too soon.
So I am sitting here tonight, watching the finals, and I finally have to say what has been bothering me all season long. Could someone put a sock in Marie’s mouth? I’m so tired of her interrupting the judges and talking over the announcers. I mean, yes, she is cute, and everybody (of a certain age) remembers Donnie and Marie, and she is close to 50 years old. But did she learn no manners when she was growing up?
According to EW’s blog, Marie (the least accomplished dancer of the three finalists but definitely an entertainer to the hilt) is expected to win because of her fan base (and according to her tonight, the thousands of doll makers who love her). Please, say it ain’t so. I have voted for both Mel and for Helio. I’ll be content if either of them win.
Am I the only one Marie’s chatter and interruptions bothers?
