We feel kind of bad about David Alan Grier. He was eliminated tonight and he is much better than Lawrence Taylor or Ty Murray. His strange mannerisms, however, may have been his downfall in the voting of the audience which killed him despite getting top scores from the judges.
We expect Lawrence to be next to go. He dances like Frankenstein. Clumsy, stiff and straining from dance to dance, he just isn’t in this competition.
Gilles Marini is killing this crowd. He could be training other stars next year. We don’t believe he got this good this year and have to believe this man has danced professionally before. His consistent 9s and 10s could even take out Shawn Johnson and Lil Kim.
In the meantime, though, we will enjoy watching the three leading teams all the way to the final three and we are adding a fourth. Lil Kim, Shawn, Melissa and Gilles. We could just have gone to these four several weeks ago and saved time. They are two points above the others. And Gilles is a point above the other three. If he keeps it up, there is little question about the outcome.
