    Although I think of Platoon whenever the Barber Adagio for Strings piece is used to end in tragedy, it worked pretty well for this, and it's nothing if not emotional. The couple were incredible actors- and I forgot all about the rest of the story. Roger also hit it out of the park in the acting department. This was the centrepiece of the season. From his dream of waking up in 1971 to a hot shower, to this merciful way to end the priest's life, this was stone cold drama that moved me.. Frankly, the rest seems like soapy camp by comparison.

    Tony was a major partner with Fred Astaire before DWM I suspect he's gone back to FA in the same capacity.

    Cute Couple... at least for the tour. She doesn't have to be on the tour to promote it with pics like this. Not saying they're in Kym and Robert's category but there is no reason not to believe they're together for now.

    My take is Sharna saying if you want GOOD dancing don't watch this show. You can't have both when you worship a celebrity with no ability whatsoever. The past 26 seasons scoffed at this,because there are celebs who dance very well but Sharna is justifying why Bones won.

    Fan blocks who don't like dance and there's lots of them do not watch the show. David Ross' Chicago Cubs fans prime example. When he and Lindsay were on they just showed their dance on the board at Wrigley and told the fans in the stands the number to vote. They weren't there to watch dancing. That hasn't changed in eons, but what I don't get is giving a pittiful dance a 30. It used to be if you screwed up as in no freaking musicality or rhythm you got docked accordingly.They gave Marie Osmond's doll dance a 22 . Even Season 10 that some have said they enjoyed none of the finalists got a perfect 30 for their finale dance. Giving a 30 to a dufus who spits on dance as an artform just because it will align with his win is bs and the major reason why this show has lost it's sequins. Maybe the showrunners want to sabatoge their show, who knows. It sure feels like they want to take a dump on dance fans.

    If poor sportsmanship is allowing someone to feel a win then this show taught us nothing. DWTS always been accused of manipulation for a desired outcome. Nobody knows the vote tally and we are told to "trust" the system. They point to the idea that they have laws after the game show scandal in the 50's to prevent it. But that's about prize money. Everyone gets paid to play a role on this show. I don't "trust" the system,and this win feels manipulative, not deserved.

    For me the winner has to have something endearing. I'm sorry but even the seasons where someone won that I wasn't their fan, I appreciated the entertainment value they brought/ This season not so much. I think back to season 8 when Gilles fans were disappointed but recognized that what a thrill it was for his opponent a 17 year old to win. Now, this win just slapped those other 17 year olds pretty darn hard. Not that I' was a fan of Milo or Evanna necessarily, but either of them winning would put a finer point on what it means to work at the fundamentals of dance to win, rather than a cheezy dance show that is constantly reminding us that its solely in the business of marketing your mug all over television so you never have to dance again. It sort of defeats the purpose of dance in the first place, and I for one hate that the draw of dance actually gets so disrespected. When I think of people like Rashad Jennings winning the whole thing, he embraced dance and respected what it takes to win, it has just fell so far so fast. Sharna did her job and brought a non-dancer to a win. I only heard of this guy on this show and frankly I don't care if I ever see him again, anywhere. He did nothing to inspire anything but contempt for Sharna's teaching with that stupid flossing. People may think it's funny but to me it was just passive aggressive bullshit to disrespect teacher and get a few laughs. Sharna had to deal with Andy Dick, and he was out of control drunk when he came back the following season. So she's dealt with a lot. What a shame she didn't get a win with that adorable funny Hinchcliffe who actually tried to please his audience and had some respect for her teaching.

    Definitely. I agree, it's never a good Argentine Tango without the great music. 4 out of the 5 of my top 5 are real Tango- Jennifer and Derek - La Cumparasita Nicole and Derek - Gotan Project Gilles and Cheryl - Assassins Tango JP and Cheryl -Libertango the only one not a "true" tango was Discombobulated from Sherlock Holmes. Zendaya/Val with an assist from Maks/Anna The music was so eerily reminicient of a Tango and the stagecraft on it was so good it's always worth a re-watch.

    I still don't get why nobody wanted to vote for JP and Cheryl. Holy shit I just saw all of his dances on y-tube and man his Samba, Salsa and AT are right up there with the best that has ever been on this show. Not every dance was stellar, but the majority were just holy shit he went for it and they were amazing. He is a natural dancer and when it was on, everything just flowed. It's sad that dance fans I know were there at one time are gone and now only tribes are voting for their fave regardless of how he dances. An art form like Dance has to be respected for what it is, not ridiculed for what it is not. I've often thought that the show makes fun of the rudiments of dance when they told old Len i to shut up. I just felt the entire direction of the show lost it's way.

    If you had Tom Brady and Ross Walker competing on DWTS one of them would have to be dropped before the finale. Teammates have the problem of splitting the vote I didn't even watch that season because A. Meryl Davis is an overrated ice dancer. and B. Charlie White is a far superior human being and I knew he was going to be dropped in favour of the maks machine another spoiled baby like Meryl desperate for a win and insufferable if they don't.

    So JP didn't get the votes. Ok. But here's the thing - back when the show was good, a male who could dance like that who comes to the show with virtually no fanbase could actually win. Gilles Marini on paper one of the best dancers and he had no fanbase when he started, but people who watched the show could not deny his talent. He ultimately got beat out by someone with a ginormous fanbase. Great Female dancers get bumped all the time, because women watch this show and they are hypercritical of their own sex. This is the first time I can remember that a talented MALE dancer did not go to the finals. Lots of males go down to defeat but they never had the ability this JP does. This is why I hate the show now and refuse to watch. Ever since the Palin fiasco back in season 11 It's become tribal in the way people just line up in droves behind a favorite whether or not they are nice people or can dance. So goes DWTS .

    I think JP is better than the male pros at AT. The male pros have too much ballroom in their movement. JP was so much more organic. Really good.

    Saw JP's Argentine Tango on Youtube. I would pay to see that at a Tango show. But then I like dancing. The people who watch this show must hate it.

    What a shame, a pro having to swallow any pride she has a professional dancer to explain why a horrible human being who can't dance or be decent still gets votes.
