There are only three couples who only dance twice, there are no "support" acts, the judges are terribly nice to everyone, the couples still have to dance at least once the next night and the sky box is just so empty!
The Tuesday show will be mayhem so maybe the quiet Monday show is what we really need.
Each couple performed a dance-type they hadn't done before and they also peformed a freestyle.
Here are the judges' score for the first two performances on the first night of Finale Week:
Ricki Lake and Derek Hough - 27 & 27 = 54 - Derek's freestyle wasn't as radical as perviousy seasons but was still pretty good. Despite being extra polite the judges were tough on their marking for everyone so the score is pretty good.
Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke - 27 & 30 = 57 - Rob's first 30 comes at just the right time. It seemed to me that Rob did get some breaks from the judges but he deserves to be up there.
JR Martinez - 24 & 30 = 54. My theory is that so many people are voting for JR that the producers want to keet some interest in the show for his fans and get the judges to mark him harshly. All conjecture of course!
Tomorrow night has the couples dancing their favorite from the whole season, one couples is then eliminated and then the final two couples so an "instant samba".
I still have my money on JR!
