I normally look forward to watching Dancing With The Stars on TV but I'm really getting uninterested, as it is no longer a dance competition but rather a popularity contest which upsets me.
I was a ballroom dancer all of my younger life and entered several competitions and did very well. It is a lot of hard work and won ribbons and trophies for dancing the ballroom dances perfectly by judges.
I was exhilarating to glide across the that beautiful dance floor with the mirrored ball on the ceiling! I loved every minute of it. It was a wonderful time of my life.
Dancing With The Stars has eliminated superb dancers and kept individuals that cannot dance at all. I don't consider climbing a flight of stairs dancing! I suppose if your mother is "Cher".... you will get millions of votes. This individual can't walk let alone dance!
I have nothing against transgender individuals but if you can't dance you should be eliminated! Dancing with the Stars started out to be only with Dance Instructors and Celebrities........so if you are a child of a celebrity........how does that make you a celebrity?
All these shows that allow people to vote is not fair. You should not be selected the best dancer just because your friends are voting for you and/or your mother is a major star! This competition should be graded by talent and hard work by judges only.
I have been voting every week for who is the best dancer in my personal opinion because I know what the dance steps involves to all the various ballroom dances. I'm not going to bother anymore! The show is getting ridiculous!
