Dancing With The Stars: Kirstie Alley Defies Weight and Age! Here's The Rankings Rankings and Commentary by RTVC Senior Staff Writer Joseph Braverman
March 25, 2011
It was definitely an interesting premiere for Dancing with the Stars.
I think it is safe to say that this may be the least talented group of individuals in a very long time when it comes to legitimate dancing skills.
The good thing is, there is no ringer in this competition. Every single contestant seems genuinely new to the dance floor, and it will make for a very unpredictable and exciting season.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
Although it may have been a very minor improvement, Brooke Burke did not annoy me as much as I thought she would. I was expecting her to once again trip over herself and ask the most lamest and basic of questions, but she seemed to integrate her questioning quite smoothly without delving into confusion and idiocy.
As far as the first judging goes, Carrie Ann Inaba, after a couple of seasons of finally winning me back as a person who respects her opinions and critiques, I suddenly found myself once again totally appalled at her gender prejudice.
How can you justify giving Petra and Kendra lower scores than Hines, Chris, and Romeo? There is just no freaking way!
Petra was elegant and her lines were pretty amazing, plus their seemed to be real chemistry between her and Dmitri.
And as for Kendra, she was easily the third best and most comfortable dancer out there next to Macchio and Alley. Her hips and legs moved incredibly, and the way she tackled Louis’ difficult choreography with personality and power was most impressive, and yet she got beaten to death by Carrie Ann.
Romeo, Hines, and Chris did not deserve their scores.
Romeo may have had sexual energy with Chelsie, but everything about that performance screamed of rebellion and a lack of serious focus.
If the judges did not let Mario Lopez get away with such antics, why should they let the son of Master P, of all people, get away with it?
As for Hines Ward, I liked his energy and comfortableness with dancing but the dude turned the cha-cha into a disco-fied disaster. I was totally expecting one of the judge’s calling him out for his simplistic dance moves that never tried to touch the boundaries of difficult choreography.
But the two did not compare to the awfulness that was Chris Jericho.
He may have brought personality, but the guy was pretty much walking throughout his entire routine.
Everything was stiff and blocky, lacking an ease of movement and fluidity. It was like Cheryl was dancing with the world’s largest rock. There was nothing about it I enjoyed nor was there any amazing dance technique to offset the heaviness of Chris’s dancing.
