    Not completely disappointed that Hayes Grier was eliminated... The competition is pretty tight now, and every single celebrity who is eliminated has a fan base, and has worked hard to stay in the competition...

    Hayes pleasantly surprised me... For a 15 year old, he really matured through his DWTS journey... But if I had to hand pick a single individual to go this week, he would be near the top of my list...

    I am also pleasantly surprised by Carlos' comment that his dance last week was "over scored"... A sharp contrast to Alek's perspective that he nailed a perfect dance last week...

    I also like Andy Grammar's work ethic...he wants a 10...but he wants to earn his 10s!

    Our six-week national nightmare is over.

    Sorry Andy but I'm worried about the pregnant lady so let's eliminate you next so she can take it easy.

    Tamar is irritating and I hope she goes soon. She doesn't seem like she even wants to learn anything from her teachers. Hayes at least seems like a pretty genuine kid. I would have rather he stayed another week.

    I agree with this... While Hayes is near the top of my list of people to go, Tamar doesn't even seem to want to be there...she doesn't seem to be enjoying herself... Hayes at least appears to want to be there and is enjoying the journey...

    I think the DanceOff last night was a very good sign of who is popular and who is not. Although I like Alexa, I don't think she is 75% popular, I think the public was voting against Tamar. And was it any surprise that Bindi and Derek got the popular vote.

    At this point, I expect the final two to be Bindi & Nick. Third place is a pick-em, but I would guess Carlos. Everyone else can't seem to have consistent dances from week to week.

    I still have the complaint that I have every season. Some couples are given music that has nothing to do with the beat of the dance they are performing which makes it hard to dance to. Since it is the producers that pick the music, they can actually decide who will win.

    Sad to see Alexa go. I think her problem was that she was inconsistent from week to week. With only one show per week, it is easy to forget that elimination was based on last week scores, not her perfect 60 this week. I really enjoyed her and Bindi's Chicago dance.


    Now, about Tamara, she is very lucky she wasn't eliminated. I know this has happened before (using rehearsal footage for judging), but I don't think that is fair. If she couldn't perform, she should have been eliminated. As far as her dance with Nick, the score were WAAAAYYY too high. She made a number of mistakes. Maybe the judges didn't want to hurt Nick, but there is no way that dance was anywhere close to a 9.

    Hideously unsatisfying ending to the episode.

    I wish Tamar had bowed out. Now we'll get under-rehearsed crap performances from her next week, too. And it's so much fun watching people wondering when they're going to keel over. NOT!

    At least now even more people will hate her for breaking up the married couple so I don't expect her to survive past Monday.

    Tamar is out, she announced on Twitter she's leaving due to blood clots in her lungs.

    If she had done this on Monday, at least Alexa would have been saved.

    Does this make next week a non-elimination?

    Whitney did a good job keeping it cool after the judges basically critiqued her choreography rather than Carlos. Especially after the package showing that she was struggling with it this week.

    Apparently there is talk about bringing Alexa back into the competition as a result of Tamar dropping out...

    Not sure how they would work out the logistics because no one was allowed to vote for Alexa after her elimination...

    If you are talking about that Paso (I think) done to a Bieber song I agree 100%.

    Use her fan phone-in numbers from the previous week ... and eliminate her two weeks in a row.

    I'd like to have Alexa back.
    I'm sure if the producers want her back, the producers and lawyers can invent/find a rule/formula that allows her back.

    I'd also like to see Alexa back... I was certain that her husband would be leaving before her...guess I was wrong... Her judge scores always seem to be higher, but perhaps her husband consistently gets the higher popular vote...

    As much as it sounds like a nice idea to have Alexa back, I hope they don't. It really screws up the votes as now people know she was at the bottom and voting patterns may change. It seems that's why they don't just always show the bottom 2 and it's instead "not necessarily the bottom two" so you really don't know who is getting the higher votes.

    Really, Tamar should have just bowed out and the whole thing would have been avoided.

    So wait a minute... When they chose two or three couples that are "in jeopardy", the only one we know of their actual position in the standings is the couple going home? The others are just randomly chosen for dramatic effect?

    I am surprised they haven't put Bindi on the hotseat just for kicks...
