Hey y'all! *waves to Andie*
Some of you know me here and some don't ;) but let me just say:
Damien and Melanie were postively ballistic on Sunday night! Dynamite and grenades going off all over the place! haha!
Sure, he has more to learn and can improve (his posture is definitely one area, as Helen so correctly pointed out) and perhaps his hands need some work, but as far as learning the moves, acting the part and connecting with mel, he's picked it all up so quickly, I'm stunned!!.. but then again, not, because that's who Damien is..an incredibly hard working, multi-talented man.
I just eish the publicity for the show gave him some credit, as others have been saying. All we've heard about so far has been Manu ad nauseaum. Brynne ad nauseaum and now josh and Todd having "words" and unfortunately, Lara's twisted ankle (ouch!)..how about a bit of acknowledgement in the promos of how he's taken everyone by surprise?? Sure, we see ten seconds of him in thsi weeks promo, but no mention of his name! Pfft!
If the producers thinks that controversy is the only drawcard this show has,they need to think again. People watch to see those they LIKE, (and want to vote for) DANCING. You'd think the dancing was only secondary to the gossip, the way they're plugging it at the moment. Popularity counts, but hey, credit were it's DUE, folks!
