Glad Jaleel went too. But I really agree with the judges about Melissa.
I'm no ballroom expert, but I do have some dance background and I see what they are seeing. She lifts her shoulders, she sticks her butt out when it isn't supposed to be out, she bends her knees when they should be straight, and when they should be bent, she is straight. She dances on her heels sometimes instead of being lifted on the balls of her feet. She is doing the steps, but the technique is really bad.

( I love Maks, so I DO hope they stay )
Oh, no doubt her technique is lacking - at one point during that dance Monday night, she was being lifted by Maks off the floor and had her knees spread out, which looked very unladylike (and I'm sure not an approved lift move, lol). The problem to me is partially what Schooner said, that most night when she dances, she is scored lower than similar dancers the judges also criticize. Also, that dance was super-ambitious with all of the lifts and spins, etc (not sure I'm using the right terms - I know they aren't ice skaters, lol). If the judges didn't like the choreography, they should address that with Maks but not count it against Melissa.

Schooner wrote:
I don't disagree that Melissa is not a great technical dancer. And, she is getting to the point in the competition where, yeah most of the others are probably better. However, my biggest beef with the judges is that they gave her low or lower scores than previous contestants who were also not great technically. They would criticize a dancer, tell them how their shoulders were up, they were on the heels, not great flicks, etc etc - then give them an 8 or 9! The inconsistency is so obvious.

And, that ridiculous CarrieAnn - "OMG, wooo, you gave me goosies...you are so sexy..." Give it a rest bimbo!
Yes, the inconsistency is what bothers me the most. The judges definitely have their biasses (acceptable spelling of word used deliberately, lol)!

Yes Kim is one of my favorite pros. I won't miss Jaleel though and was happy Roshon is staying.

week 8 of Dancing with the Stars, we have yet another twist in an already tumultuous season. This week we kiss theme week goodbye, but we have a new feature, the “trio dance”, as well a double elimination. The couples will each have two dances to perform, including a dance they haven’t yet danced, and this new trio dance performed to a Latin style of dance. The trio dance involves the star and pro pair dancing with a previously eliminated pro or a member of the Troupe.

According the ABC press release, “In addition to their regular criteria for judging dance routines, the judges will pay extra attention to how well each celebrity is showcased in the performance with an extra dancer in the mix.” Based on this, it would appear that the judges are judging the pros as well as the contestant, because it’s the pros' choreography that determines how well the celebrity contestant is showcased. Things that make you go hmmm. So who’s dancing what? Well, not all the info is out yet. Seems a few couples are keeping tight lipped on their dances, hence the ? is some places:

Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd: Tango and Jive with Karina Smirnoff
Melissa Gilbert & Maks Chmerkovskiy: Foxtrot and Samba with Val Chemerkovskiy
Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower: Foxtrot and Paso Doble with Sasha Farber?
Maria Menounos & Derek Hough: Waltz and Samba with Henry Byalikov?
Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas: Vienesse Waltz and Cha Cha with Tristan MacManus
William Levy & Cheryl Burke: Foxtrot and Paso Doble with Tony Dovolani?

There are only three weeks left in Season 14, so in order to end up with 4 couples in the semifinal week and 3 couples in the final week, 2 couples will be eliminated this week. On the Dancing with the Stars Results Show will be a tribute to Dick Clark and his American Bandstand show, with a big dance number by Karina, Tony, and the Troupe. Chris Brown will be the musical guest performing his hit “Turn Up the Music. Dancing with the Stars week 8 kicks off Monday, May 7 at 8 .pm. (ET) on ABC.

I really have enjoyed the trios. I still think Donald was robbed on perfect 10!!!

I enjoyed watching Maks and Val but Melissa I'm just not enjoying her.

It would've been fun to be the middle of that Chmerkovskiy sandwich, lol! I loved Donald's trio dance too - really, I liked all of them. The Bollywood one was really different and fun to watch. I think they'll be keeping this element in the coming seasons!

I voted for both Melissa and Maria. Melissa's really coming on strong. Maybe Katherine will go home.

I loved the trio dances!!! They were all really fun to watch. I especially liked and voted for Donald/Peta (who were most definitely robbed of a perfect score) and Roshon/Chelsie. It's hard to say which 2 will go home tomorrow night.

Loved all the trio dances. Donald most definitely should have received 10's from Len and Bruno. The scoring this season is so inconsistent.

Dial Idol has Melissa and Maks as the ONLY safe couple. I know it's not accurate but I found that result surprising, nonetheless.

That was a great twist - loved the trio dances! I kept thinking during Maria/Derek's dance "where is the samba in all this?" I know they incorporated it, but it certainly didn't feel like a samba. I can't fault them though - the music wasn't suited to a samba.

Having said all that - I LOVED IT! I loved the whole Bollywood twist on it, and I thought she did a fantastic job.

I liked all the trio dances to be honest - but I didn't understand Katherine's scores. For the first time, I thought that Melissa's dance was just as good, even though the scores didn't reflect it. I thought Melissa's trio dance with really really good.

I couldn't help but think that after Mel/Maks dance (and their response to the scores) that the judges were pissed and decided to raise all the remaining teams scores so that M/M would end in the bottom two. No way some of those were 10's!

It's tough now, because all of the remaining dancers are good, and if I was being completely honest, Melissa is probably the one that SHOULD go home. But, I think they have been so unfair to her throughout this season that I hope her fans give the judges a big "fuck you" and keep her til the end.

Tonight it seems likely that Roshon will be gone. IF Melissa doesn't go, then I think Katherine could be in trouble, because it's likely she doesn't have the fan base here to get enough votes.

It feels like Donald and William will be safe, and that only leaves Maria, who would probably beat Katherine in votes just because of being better known in the U.S.

CJ--that was my favorite threesome dance. It deserved 10's across the board.

My favorite dance was Chelsie and Roshon's foxtrot. I LOVED it. I have to take back what I said about William last week. His dance was my second best last night.

I have no idea who is going home. The scoring is all over the place.

Let's hope all of Packer Nation voted last night!! I split my votes between Donald and Roshon. I loved Roshon last night. I have a feeling tonight will be one of those shocker eliminations. I am predicting Katherine for one of them.

I think it will be Roshon or Melissa (I like them both too) but I think Katherine is a much better dancer.
