    Does Heather Morris (despite her response when she was asked about it, she was a Green Miler (season 2, I think)) count?
    Since, under the "old method," the partnerships were random (supposedly) once they got to the final 10, I don't see how having the all-stars there gets in the way of developing partnerships. In fact, it's almost as if they tried to keep couples together in the first five weeks; I wouldn't be surprised if the real reason there was no elimination in the first week was that Nigel couldn't find a way to eliminate two dancers from the same couple.

    That piece screwed with me because the guys were in different positions than the first time they did the number (IMO first was better even with the door snafu). Then I kept seeing a random blonde whom I could not identify- I thought maybe someone was ill and they added a stand in? Then slowly, by a process of elimination, I finally deduced that said blonde was Alexander wearing some funky makeup to boot. I wondered why the makeup- thought it was in preparation for another number but that never panned out, so all I am left with is the "why?"
    It's not as if he doesn't have the right to change things up, but that is a drastic change and did him no favors- I was actually reminded of that horrific "White Chicks" movie.

    I thought there was plenty of talent amongst the dancers.

    So - I believe what went wrong with this season was the choreographers. The only 'routine' I watched again was the duet with Marco and Allison. I also paused to re-watch Melanie do her leap into his arms during the Total Eclipse.

    Other than that - there wasn't a single other number I felt like I needed to watch again.

    Dancers fault? No.
    Choreographers fault? Yes.

    I agree with this sentiment.

    While I didn't think that this season was nearly as bad as many of you apparently did, I do think the choreography was remarkably worse.

    Unfortunatley it seems that this show has evolved into a choreography competition (for Emmys) as much as a dance competition. I've grown very tired of the way the judges pump up the choreographers after each dance, and it's gotten much worse over the last few years. When I saw the routine with Tadd swinging from a rope I thought "now they're really out of ideas"... but really they're just trying to outdo each other instead of focusing on highlighting the dancers.

    I wish Sasha had won, but I liked Melissa too. Actually, I liked them each best when they danced with each other. :)
