Should Cheryl Burke take a break from DWTS? 5/23/12

Cheryl1Dancer Tribute 5/23/12: Cheryl Burke (San Francisco, CA)

What a great Finale on Dancing with the Stars last night!  I am so glad that DONALD DRIVER & PETA won!  I have been rooting for them since my blog on 3/20/12.

By comparison, last year I sort of rooted for Cheryl & Rob Kardashian.  This year I hoped & prayed that WILLIAM LEVY & CHERYL BURKE would NOT Win!!!

 

 

Cheryl2Why?

  • Too much over-scoring of basic dances done by William by the judges.
  • Too much William “PIMPING”
  • Too many lap dances, shirtless dancing and dancing around William
  • Not enough dance talent by William, even though the beefcake was nice
  • The Judge Pandering to ABC due to the Latin American TV deal made the over-scoring worse and the judges comments look fake
  • The judges lost their CREDIBILITY this season by obviously over-scoring William & Cheryl (The Royal Couple) while under-scoring Donald & Peta
  • I love all things DWTS and my favorite articles are by Pure Dancing with the Stars, especially when written by John and Courtney.

Cheryl3I noticed a lot of posts by this group and also message boards and forums that the JUDGES NEED TO BE REPLACED and that CHERYL BURKE needs to take a break for a season.

The worst thing about Cheryl’s choreography this season was that is was PREDICTABLE!  Even Donald Driver and Len Goodman mentioned this.  Also Katherine Jenkins remarks, “We’re not about taking off clothes.  It’s about the dancing for us.”

Being PREDICTABLE equals being BORING & STALE!  And being Boring is the worst thing any performer can do.  Why not bother watching a performer, if they are going to do the same thing again and again and again.

Cheryl4William & Cheryl’s dances this season were all about Cha Cha, Samba, ass-shaking, bump & grinds.  Which was cool the first time, but then the 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th time, I would just glance over it, yawn, and count the minutes until the next commercial break.  I’m sorry, but William’s good looks can only go so far when it comes to dancing.  Non-dancers noticed the lack of skill and easy, safe, predictable routines.  As a dancer, it really stood out, because I’m not so simple to just watch him and say he deserves 10s based on looks alone.

Sure, sometimes we do like to hear/see our favorite performers do their hit song again and again.  I never get tired of Michael Jackson performing Smooth Criminal.  And what about watching Elizabeth Taylor’s entrance scene in Cleopatra?  What about Rita Moreno performing “A Boy Like That” in West Side Story?  I just love the side reference that she went to see a production of West Side Story on her new show Happily Divorced, and also so glad that the producers gave her a chance to Cheryl5sing in one of the episodes.

Anyhoo.  Sometimes I root for Cheryl in some seasons and sometimes I feel sorry for Cheryl when she gets saddled with “horrible” dancers like Wayne Newton and Tom DeLay.  That was so painful to watch.  Cheryl really got cheated in Season 11 when she & Rick Fox got the boot, and Bristol Palin had the NERVE to be in the Finals.  Another example of the judges being FAKE and over-scoring a non-talented performers to please the producers.

I’m so glad that actual DANCE TALENT prevailed this season.  The producers did great by letting the true Cheryl6dancers win – Donald & Peta.  I would have been so pissed off if William Levy won a dance content, based on looks and over-scoring. ‘

By the way, no way that MARIA & DEREK should have in 4th place.  In a real world, with no over-scoring and pimping the line up should have been:

  1. Donald and Peta, winner
  2. Maria & Derek, 1st runner up (or WINNER)
  3. Roshon & Chelsie, 2nd runner up
  4. Katherine & Mark, 3rd runner up

I don’t think that Cheryl & William even deserved 3rd place.  They should not have made it that far do to Judges over-scoring and pimping of the Royal Couple.  And truth be told, William should have left before Jaleel, if you are looking at dance talent alone.  MARIA & DEREK WERE ROBBED THIS SEASON!!!Cheryl7

Who do you think should have won this season & why?

All personal grudges aside from this season, I truly feel that CHERYL is the QUEEN dancer on Dancing with the Stars and LOUIS VAN AMSTEL is the KING or Alpha male dancer on Dancing with the Stars.  Sorry Maks.

Watch the costumes that are worn by Cheryl & Louis and the respect that the other dancers show them.  Also Cheryl has the best of the best of the best COSTUMES on DWTS!  She has the most beads, the most fringe and her costumes are the most ORNATE. Even her shoes seems to be more bedazzled.  Louis seems to do more group choreographies of all of the other dancers on the show.  And usually when it is the pros doing a choreography, he and Cheryl are paired together.

And when you are the QUEEN BEE, the last thing on your mind is taking a break.  But if you have a season of PREDICTABLE, BORING & STALE dances, then maybe you should consider some time off.
