Something needs to be done with the judging and elimination of the dancers!! After the show this Monday, 11/11/13 - when the pair of Elizabeth B. and her partner was was enough for us! We will not watch the rest of the season and truly, I am not sure, we will try it again! The last 3 seasons were more of the popularity contest and the speed of some people fingers tech savvy but some of the older generation cannot compete with this modern technology but have been faithful followers but love the show for the dance skills, judges expertise & fairness and its overall entertainment values. Unfortunately that has gone to the pretty obvious that some of the very best dancing stars have been sent home in favor of some who can't dance even after so many weeks of training. Worst season of elimination that we have watched and we have seen them all!
Why to have judges at all? They should be the ones deciding who is talented and deserves to stay to the the viewers!!!!! It's time to come up with different ways to fairly judge and eliminate pairs upon their technical and musical abilities - 75% judges values vs. 25% viewers values for starter? PS: Kind of bummed that we won't see the end......
DWTS judges and ABC just what were you thinking? Cutting it to a 1 day show and eliminating at the end? Cutting it to 1 day is good because I think it is much too long anyway even though it is still 2 hours. Obviously this season is all about popular vote, not quality of dancing. Maybe you should get the elimination done right away instead of making these dancers dance there tails off and get 10's and then get eliminated. I don't think a score of 25 or 30 is going to keep them in at that point anyway based on the viewer votes coming in from the week before dancing. It is a sad bad season and you are loosing this viewer from every season since the beginning. Time to rethink this show. While you are at it, get those judges on the other side of the floor away from the dancers. It is a nice touch to have everyone on the main floor but separate them. Too much talking between the couples and judges going on. Maybe it is time for a major judge and show make over. It may be popular and getting nominations, but it is also getting old. Have to say Julianne Hough was a great judge, she put a fresh and hands-on perspective in it.
Clearly, the viewers of DWTS are sending a message to the judges on the show. And clearly, this show is no longer about dancing - rather this show has turned into a popularity contest. Leah has been in the news concerning her Church - people feel bad for her. Bill is simply a pretty nice guy - an "everyday" guy.
This show needs a new set of judges next season. The current 3 judges have worn out their welcome.
It's pretty obvious that some of the very best dancing stars have been sent home in favor of some who just can't dance. That would mean that the best dancers can't make the final. Worst season of elimination that I have watched and I have seen them all!
I have watched every episode of DWTS since it first aired. I am extremely disappointed with this 2013 season however. Who gets voted off has become excessively fan based and minimally based on dancers skill and performance. Several of the best dancers this season have been voted off already leaving some "average" (almost boring) dancers still in the competition. I am not even looking forward to the finale. Going forward, how about basing eliminations 75% of judge's scores and 25% on viewer votes!
Choosing a 16-yr. old as a contestant is absurd and unfair!! She may be a great dancer, but she's way too young to be on the show and it's unfair for the rest of the contestants! to go downhill as far as I'm concerned. I was an avid watcher for a long time, but the last 2 seasons have been fairly boring and uneventful. Get with it, ABC!!
I have been watching DWTS from season one and this season of 2013 has got to be the "cheesiest" season ever. The horrible song choices and props are just ruining the show. I just started learning ballroom dancing and I would appreciate viewing more ballroom dancing and less cheesy routines!

I love dancing with the stars but I think the winner tonight will be based on who is the most popular with the fans. the best dancer is Mellissa. hope she wins but wont be surprised if she does not. they never should have booted off apollo he was terrific
The finals for DWTS, is made up of an all female cast. There is Kelly who is using her sexuality rather than her dancing skills to appeal to the public, Shawn who is like a light comes on and goes off with her performances, who got the public wondering what she could pull off for the finals, and last but not least there is Melissa who has been climbing the ladder with her performances. Its too bad the silly public, voted Sabrina off. I would rather have Sabrina replace Kelly for the finals. Sometimes, I wonder what the public were thinking, keeping Kirstie on and voting Sabrina off.
Its weird because all the finalists are females, and no male celebrities. Its not fair if you ask me . . .
Why is it that even tho the judges have yet to find an error in Emmitt & Cheryl's dances they are not getting any 10's something is reall WRONG .. Is it because he is the oldest ?? Seems odd..Let's be FAIR.
This show is all about light entertainment done so professionally. It suits the whole family and just is an hour of perfect, glamorous escape from regular life. Flawless production and a really entertaining time. Never gets old for me. Love it!
I have been A fan for years, but over the last couple of seasons it seems to be getting a little tedious. I am only watching the show now towards the end to see who wins. I don't really care about seeing the past winners. They have won, lets move on!
I have a blast with this show.... the celebrities are always silly. I love to see them grow as dancers... it's a challenge! Also, the outfits are always super dazzling to see. The behind the scenes part is what makes learning how to dance fun. Woo hoo!
Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd came out to support fellow "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Katherine Jenkins at the John Wayne Cancer Institute Event. They chatted with StarCam's Jennifer Tapiero about how things have changed on the show, and why this season is more difficult. Donald talked about whether or not he's teaching his wife some new moves and what part of prepping for the show he's exempt from. Check out the full interviews on our YouTube Channel (StarCam Celebrities) or just follow the links. Thanks!!!
I think this is and excellent show. The dancing is freakin' awesome. This show is suprising and we figure out that we have good celeberty dancers. OK this show is about a contestant with a celeberty and try to win Dancing with Stars. Now the only bad thing about this show is that we have to see some good people leave but minus that this is a perfect show. Now there are some really good celeberty dancers like Kyle Masey and some other people. Now the judges aren't annoying so that's good. Well I think this is a perfect show. Kee up the good work. You'll love this show! Overall 10/10.
Sounds like it will be a show to remember. I can hardly wait! Each Season I think I know who will win the mirror ball and each Season (I'm wrong) Bummer! This is one of the best entertainment shows on the tube today. It is also the one show that can take me away from writing my books. As a novelist, I try to stay on top of the writing world BUT I always take a break away from it all when it is time for "Dancing With The Stars." The action is FAST, the theme each week is always FUN, the dialogue is never DULL (you just never know who is going to say what). What a blast! The dancers (both) male and female alike are very SEXY, and just like a great story you are reading the pages seem to turn themselves. Dancing With The Stars get my (2) thumbs up...way up! If I had more than two-thumbs I'd put them all up! I will look forward to more reunions from seasons of the past. Especially, the one with Bristol Palin. I love the Palin family. I think the show should invite Sara to dance now that she isn't going to run for the Oval Office. What do you think? She'd get this fan's vote. That's for sure. I'd also like it if the show would invite Robin Roberts from the Good Morning America Show. I bet she and the "Mad Maks" would get ratings off the chart! And, how about inviting CHER (gosh, she is timeless), and also how about John Travolta or his wife. Kelly Preston? What another high-ratings suggestion that would be. What do ya think? Who is going to be on this season's show anyway? Anyone want to hazzard a guess?
C\'mon people who watches this show!!! It\'s absolutely crap. I can not believe that this show have 2 seasons.
And the worse part is that fox is planning to do Skating with the celebrities. For shows like this, other good shows got canceled, like Arrested Development, for example.
If you watch this show i would say that you´re mentally challenged!!!!
I'll be surprised to see Maks on the show next season - all that negativity! It even seeped into his partner, who must be realistic. On their last night, her toes were sticking up, rather than pointing out...it was sad to watch, knowing her athletic capabilities. Then there were the f words from them backstage, and his negativity about Derek, who has choreographed such much better dances; really, Maks, he did!
