DWTS originated out of England made it's way throughout Europe and down
under, assuming different titles. BBC, responsible for the American
version, entitled the British version 'Strictly Come Dancing' which
spawned sequels 'Strictly Come Dancing : It Takes Too' and 'Strictly
Ice Dancing'. Of course, there are the obligatory wannabe knock-offs
(Fox's Idol-ized 'So You Think You Can Dance') but make no mistake,
this show offers real entertainment value about an art form that's
often overlooked and seen as outdated.
Some people would like to write this off as another trashy reality show, but it's definitely not. It's a classy, professional, dance competition. It's refreshing to watch a cultured show and because it's in the summer, younger audiences are tuning in. It's started a craze and it's it's boosted careers for the show's celebrities. It's a hot item on the Yahoo Search and Buzz Log, for a good reason. Don't miss the international phenomenon of...Dancing With The Stars.
Out of all the programs we see on television,I think "Dancing" has
stood the test of time.Carrie Ann Inaba,Bruno Tunioli and Len Goodman
are the judges who critique the moves and faults of 12 famed
celebrities with their Professional dance partners.Each celebrity, goes
through an intense training and workout to polish a specific routine.It
is like "basic training" at dance school! I love this show,because the
viewer realizes that we are all human and not perfect.Every person must
work hard, at achieving a goal.Every week finds an elimination,where
one pair is taken out by popular vote of the judges and by viewer
This show is so wonderful, and Goodman,Tunioli and Inaba help the celebrities realize there is so much fun on the dance floor.
Bravo to the cast for every amazing "transformation".
Choosing Christie(figure skater) to compete in season 6 was TOTALLY RIDICULOUS. Off course she was gonna win. She is a world champion DANCING on ice, knows and is use to perform in front of millions of people, already knows how to be graceful(posture, hands etc). How unfair and ridiculous can you be. Even to choose music artist who do dance moves is absurd and unfair. What is amateur about Christie or the girl who won the UK dancing with stars. Get real. Jason should and deserve to win this competition and if Christian had not injured his arm - he would have walked it but no, you decide to put a already world champion dancer against them. I AM TOTALLY SICK TO MY STOMACH that that girl won. Unfair!!!!!!!!
I was very disappointed in the results of this weeks show. I'm afraid the show is becoming nothing more than a popularity contest. To me the two contestants that should have been booted off are Marie or Jenny. They are both very good but do not come up to the excellence of Helio and Mel B. In my opinion I think Marie will win as she has the whole Morman church voting for her all over the country. This winning by popularity has to be changed. If they can't come up with a better way of voting than it should be left up to the judges on the show. When a guy like Cameron Mathieson who absolutely did not know how to dance at all and has become a great dancer gets booted off, before Jenny or Marie there is something rotten in Denmark as they say.

It is happening again as it did last year where the judges give high praise and marks several who are less talented than others. Last year we had P-Diddy(might be wring name),Geaorge Hamilton, and Jerry Rice and other more talented dancers got bounced early. Now this year we have Jerry Springer who stands there and lets his partner do the work and he stays and Vivaca Fox gets booted. I hear the judges are shocked but they are responsible for telling the audience how good he's doing. And the dramatic showing of him going over and hugging his daughter was nothing more "on with the show". Emmet Smith who I like and is doing as good a job as Jerry Rice did last year still doesn't have the moves of some of the other stars. I realize that some of the stars have tremendous star support which makes is all the more critical that the judges do their jobs properly. If the star does a poor job than give them the 2, 3, and 4's they deserve. 2006 review
How can someone as talented as Audrina be voted off? In my opinion how does someone like Bristol Palin still remain. She is not a good dancer. I am so disappointed with DWS that I am not going to watch this program any more. It is suppose to be about talent.............hello. I understand that the call in vote has a lot to do with it also, but come on. They should change the rules......people that are not that good seem to remain . I am not happy with dancing with the stars....maybe it is time for the program to move on. I think this last vote off is going to make a lot of watchers very very unhappy. I hope people will voice their feelings..............
This is just correcting a mistake that was made:

Im not sure about the DWTS but the title 'Stictly Ice Dancing' was/is not a BBC program. The correct title is 'Dancing On Ice' and this is shown and made by the British channel ITV who have nothing to do with the BBC. I just wanted to point this out.
The show is intriguing mainly because of the obvious increased
performance level of each star with each show. My confusion is why
"Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera was the music that Sara
Evans was forced to dance to when doing a Pasa Doble. And why Viveca A.
Fox had to display Latin passion to a Bon Jovi song, obviously from the
rock genre, also to dance a Pasa Doble.
I was curious then to see that Mario Lopez, also dancing a Pasa Doble had the surprising good fortune to be able to dance this number with the appropriate music.
Is there someone out there who can answer my questions?
Mr. P has no talent and despite the shows scoring policy the fact that he still remains a contestant is outrageous. It goes without saying that he has a strong following and I imagine that following thinks they are entitled to vote numerous times for him. However, the intention of the voting is to find the most talented in the group. At least that is my understanding. While I enjoyed the first one or two shows, last week I found myself having a lot of difficulty with that fact that Mr. P was not voted off. I felt I needed to express that feeling to those responsible for the show in hopes that they will realize they need to be very careful when setting guidelines for these reality programs.

Dancing with the Stars has been my favorite show for years. However, I
think it is a travesty that the show producers have allowed politics to
take over the show. Selecting Bristol Palin over Brandy to continue on
to the finals is mind-boggling.
Mark Ballas is an outstanding professional performer, choreographer, teacher and great person -- as are all the rest of the dance professionals on the show. Mark Ballas did the best he could with Bristol Palin, but her abilities as a dancer could not even come close to the gracefulness, style and dance ability of Brandy.
I think Brandy should be brought back and allowed to compete in the finals. I also think the judges should remove politics from the final results and allow the best dancers to win.
As a Hall of Fame awarded dancer and dance instructor myself I am very sad.
