Sharna straight after hearing that there are female spots open and the show has lost two blonde dancers:    

Lmao the pros are so done with the judges this season. Can't even blame them.

I know this isn’t really season 29-related but looks like Lindsay’s baby has arrived or will be arriving soon!

Oooh, congrats (or soon to be congrats) to Lindsay! 😮

Jeannie’s surgery went successfully. ❤️ So lucky that her doctors were able to find her condition as it sounds awful and as she notes, life-threatening. Wishing her a safe and continued recovery!

#bless, this is great news. ❤️ Wishing her a speedy and safe recovery!

Didn't watch but let me guess they are still nit-picking Kaitlyn and over hyping the males..awesome. am I right? 

They actually scored Nelly and AJ appropriately, so there’s that

 

They has critiques for both Nev and Kaitlyn but of course Nev is the one who got all 9’s while Kaitlyn got two 8’s.

press release!

 



Tyra Banks will walk out to Jennifer Lopez’s “Jenny from the Block.” The first round will be a competitive dance in a style not yet performed by the couples this season as they pay tribute to their musical icons. Afterward, the second round is the Dance-Off Challenge. Two at a time, couples face off against one other on the ballroom floor as they dance head-to-head in the same style at the same time (Justina & Sasha vs. Kaitlyn & Artem dance Cha Cha to “Telephone” by Lady Gaga featuring Beyoncé, AJ & Cheryl vs. Johnny & Britt dance Jive to “Cup of Life” by Ricky Martin, and Nelly & Daniella vs. Skai & Alan dance Salsa to “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” by Wham). The winners of each of the three dance-offs will be selected by the judges, and the winning couple from each dance-off will receive two bonus points added to their judges’ totals for the night. Nev and Jenna will be granted dance-off immunity based on the leaderboard from last week and the highest cumulative score over the season (due to a tie with Johnny and Britt) and will not have to participate, receiving two bonus points as part of their immunity.

my initial thoughts are that their rigging for nev is as CLEAR as ever, as this is the first time (i'm pretty sure?) that someone has walked into an episode with immunity

:dead: i guess i won't have to bet on anyone else for the rest of the season

 

- i smell a perfect score for kaitlyn. that style is perfect for her, i think, and it'll be nice to see her nail a more serious dance -- love the song choice for her too

- the producers are definitely trying to set skai up i think because she hasn't had a non-latin dance since her jazz in week five :dead: i think she's guaranteed those bonus points against nelly though

- excited to see justina give a great rumba because i know she'll kill it!

- neutral on aj. good song, we'll see if he does well

- nelly finally getting a dance with less rules, i definitely suspect he's gonna get lots of praise for whatever he does and i'm sure it'll be lots of fun

- pass on nev since whatever he does won't matter anyway lol yes i'm bitter that he's automatically immune

- VERY excited for johnny's dance! probably my favorite song choice (though it does make me miss naya rivera all over again 💔 )

Sounds like a fun episode! Guessing the Jive and Salsa dance-off songs are the wrong way round, as this week’s press release error :haha:

 

Gotta love the press release errors. :giggle:

They’re not even trying to be subtle with their Nev pimping. :dead:

Seriously. :dead: Every other time they’ve done the dance-off, it’s whoever gets the highest score on the night gets immunity and now, it’s suddenly different.
 

We see you show, and we do not like it. 🙂

I can’t believe I didn’t even pick up on that instant immunity twist. Jesus. :dead:
 

The gap between Nev and second place in total scores (Kaitlyn) isn’t even that tight so basically he had that on lock.

I thought this as I knew we pretty much had the same draft. :( :dead: And I had Monica as well but that didn’t do me much of a favour :haha:

The press release said it was him vs Johnny based off who had the highest score last week, and Nev won because he had the higher rating of the season.

 

Now we know why they overscored him so much. 🙂

Oh I misread that and just thought they were doing it off overall points. :haha: Johnny deserved! Nev will be fine anyway ugh.
