    Ok, tonight is the night. Just prepping up this thread for those of us that will watch and pop on during commercial breaks. I'm sure they will announce who "would" have been voted off if they were doing so last week. But for the most part, it will be a clean slate. It will be interesting to see who improves and if the pro's rework their idea of creating routines in light of what the judges looked at last week.

    So, I guess I'll see so me of you here later in the day. ;)

    I work with non-dancers. They all know I do swing, and of the group of 70 workers on my floor, at least half have caught me practicing at some point in the copy room or elevator banks.

    Well imagine my surprize when it's only 11am and random co-workers keep coming up to me asking if I watched last weeks show and how much they enjoyed it and are looking forward to tonight.

    The love Joey and John.

    They all think it's fantastic how this was put together and know the dancing isn't the greatest, but still think it's cool.

    Oh how I wish I had a TV now!

    Go buy one, some models are very inexpensive. Or, go over to a friend's house this evening who owns a TV. :D

    Nah, I'll go out dancing tonight instead...why watch when I can do!

    There are a few sites that have the performances online, so I've seen those, just not the training inbetween.

    I think it's interesting that I have seen a lot more promotion on TV and on the radio in the last couple of days for this week's show than for last weeks - maybe they were impressed enough with the ratings to put more advertising money into it!

    It makes sense. I wouldn't think that advertisers would want to fork out a lot of advertising money on something that may become a flop.

    I haven't seen a single ad this week, but then again, I don't watch much ABC (Six Feet Under just started - woo hoo!). I'm very excited. I put one beer (I need to behave as I have a lesson early tomorrow) in the fridge getting nice and chilled for tonight!

    I liked the first rumba a lot... But I can't judge latin too well ..

    Trista's rumba was a lot better than the waltz... She managed to smile... but she was still stiff... Not much emotion...

    Trista was so stiff in the beginning. I'm glad she warmed up a bit toward the end.

    Poor Trista, they will most likely be the first couple out...

    So far I am actually very please with how much progress everyone has made since last week. The women are obviously more comfortable and Joey was very cute again.
    John made a few minor missteps but Charlotte the ever professional Pro was able to rearrange her feet to accomodate.

    Knowing absolutely nothing about Ballrooom, I can only say that the first Rumba was the most interesting and exciting dance. THe quickstep just I just wanted to be over, the last rumba, the lady exuded indifference, and the male dance with himself

    Really liked how peaceful looking Charlotte's and John's quickstep really was... Didn't look out of control but still had energy...

    Charlotte is such an amasing Standard dancer. Funny how her real personality shows in this show... I guess John had a really good partner :)

    I guess I am not hiding how much I like her dancing. She did a great job with John. :D :D
