DWTS Judge Carrie Ann Inaba!

Posted: 04:25 PM ET

Programming note:  Tune in to LKL tonight to see the Dancing With The Stars finalists talk about the season and who they think will end up with the disco ball trophy this year.  Join Tom Bergeron, Carrie Ann Inaba, Donny Osmond, Mya and Kelly Osborne – plus their partners and a surprise performance!  Only on Larry King Live at 9pm ET/6pm PT...

Hi Everyone, 

It’s me, Carrie Ann Inaba from Dancing with the Stars and now TV GUIDE NETWORK as well!!!  Hope all is going well in your lives.  

Whew…it’s been quite a season on DWTS with all the new added elements and the added number of contestants!  I really have to say congratulations to all the competitors this season because I definitely think that it has been the most grueling season ever!

Our stars have had to do so much more than previous years and I am impressed with the spirits of everyone who is still in the game.  This is not a season for the weak – that’s for sure.  There have been so many twists and turns and we are now down to the wire.  With Mya, Donny & Kelly left in the running – I think it’s going to be a tight race.

They are all there for such different reasons – Kelly has won the hearts of the audience and she has a special spark out there that is unmatched by any other competitor.  Mya is an elegant, graceful and super sexy dancer that has all the right moves; and Donny – who doesn’t love themselves a Donny Osmand performance?   Most of us grew up with him in our living rooms. 

It’s anyone’s disco ball at this point – and that freestyle is coming up.  You know we’ve seen people lose it in their freestyle – so keep your socks on and enjoy the final nights of competition! 

I want to talk about something very important and dear to my heart….

I know there’s a lot of dance lovers out there and people who want to support the arts so now, since it is disappearing in so many ways, I wanted to share with you more about The Dizzy Feet Foundation (DFF) and ways that you can help to the future dancers of the world.

I am one of the cofounders of The Dizzy Feet Foundation, along with Nigel Lithgoe, Adam Shankman and Katie Holmes.  We started this foundation because we all wanted to give back to the community that had given us all so much.  DFF is a non-profit organization for the dance community that is providing scholarships and assistance to talented, underserved youth to help them realize their dreams of becoming professional dancers.  We are also working to create awareness about the positive impact that dance – and creative pursuits in general can have on the growth and development of our nation’s youth.  It’s a foundation that means so much to me on such a personal level and we have had incredible support from so many people in the industry and beyond, that it is truly inspiring.

Dance has been so important in my life – it taught me everything that has enabled me to be who I am today.  I learned how to work hard for my dreams; I learned how to take care of myself, my spirit and my body.  I learned how to let go and be free in the dance.  I learned how to communicate in ways sometimes more effective than words alone.  I learned how important it is to listen to my body – to be intuitive – to be compassionate – to be true to myself.  I also learned how to express myself.  I learned that I was strong, that my personal expression was unique and important.  All these things have helped me to be who I am today.  And this is what we are trying to give back to our future generations.  With arts being taken away from school curriculums, it is vital to create other ways to give our youth opportunities to find and learn dance. 

We are doing our first-ever GALA at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on November 29th, 2009.  It will be a night or dancing, performing, auctions and a lot of fun.  And it’s all to support our cause in helping young people realize their dreams.  To learn more about the event (including how to get tickets), our organization or to make a tax-deductible donation, go to our website: www.dizzyfeetfoundation.org.  Oh, and by the way, it looks like Cheryl Burke & Gilles Marinia and the Ballas Hough Band are also going to be performing at the gala! 

I am also involved with Clothes Off Our Back – please go to www.clothesoffourback.org and bid on a unique Dancing with the Stars package!  This organization is great and proceeds go to help children’s charities.

I can’t wait to see you at the gala…and don’t forget – season 10 of DWTS is just around the corner!

They are all good dancers. Mya is a good dancer but not as graceful and elegant in her moves as Kelly.
Kelly without any experience as Mya is really doing very good.
Her grace in dancing should make her win.


Bill   November 20th, 2009 5:43 pm ET

What do you all think of my favorite band ABBA? Maybe you can dance to some ABBA music?


Caimile   November 20th, 2009 6:00 pm ET

Tess: No way is Kelly more graceful than Mya standing still, let alone dancing! I still love Kelly though.


carol ossie   November 20th, 2009 10:08 pm ET

i dont mya at all she is such a show off and i hope she doesnt get the trophy on tuesday night i want donny and kym to win on tuesday night.


Keith   November 20th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

I work at night so i didn't get to see the shows this season and figure...my future wife is on the show....GO MYA!!!! she is just so SWEET and has the cutest smile...


carol ossie   November 20th, 2009 10:10 pm ET

mya is good but not as good as donny and kym donnny got better everymonday night i like mya but not enough to win on tuesday night


Phil Cates   November 20th, 2009 10:15 pm ET

I would likey to know what hast to be done to get someone on DWTS.
Kelly Ripa on "Live with Regis and Kelly" would be a fantastic contestent. However, the way the voting is going I don't know. I know it is a popularity contest, but Dereck and his partner were much better than Myah. Anyway, I would like to see Kelly Ripa on the show. I hope Donny wins.


Phil Cates   November 20th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

Myah is a dancer. I don't think it is fare....


Donna   November 20th, 2009 10:20 pm ET

One of the teachers at my daughter's school has started up a ballroom dance class in the mornings before school and the group keeps growing every week! It's great!


Alicia   November 20th, 2009 10:25 pm ET

I think Mya is the winner considering she got high scores on most of her dancing. Isn't that counts.


Suzanne   November 20th, 2009 10:26 pm ET

All the way from Barbados!!! If I had to vote Mya and Dmitry all the way!! This couple are not only pleasant on the eyes but quite frankly keeping me watching. I do not mind Kelly or Donnie being there at the finals however, if Mya was not there I would not be watching. Dmitry and Mya get my ALLLLLLLLLL my votes. Too bad I cannot vote. When it is all said and done Mya, take a well deserved vacation here in Barbados. You can bring Dmitry along also!!! :).


Maryann   November 20th, 2009 10:28 pm ET

I really like Kelly. She has not always been the best, but she has improved every single week. Last week she really came into her own and let go.......less self-conscious! As Carrie Ann says, you have to feel it! It isn't just the technique. I LOVE DANCE! Go Kelly.....and Louis!


JOAN MOORE   November 20th, 2009 10:31 pm ET

I I LOVE THE SHOW AND WOULD LOVE TO SEE KELLY WIN SHE IS SO DEVINE AND HAVE MATURED TO SUCH A LOVELY LADY. FROM A GRAMMA IN CANADA. XXX OOO


suzanne   November 20th, 2009 10:35 pm ET

Mya is not considered to be a professional dancer but she could be. The scores are coming from professional dance judges. Kelly, is improving every week confidence and dance technique, but needs more time. Donnie is a team player and attracts the crowd, but needs to continue working on his technique. I think Mya is the person that stands out and should win the contest.


ric   November 20th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

why is the dancing for like tricks, and less like dancing,
being a former professional competitor, i see that the dancing is getting more like theatrical tricks and less like ballroom dancing

the middle job Len, really has the full picture of what dancing should really be like

And then there is the costumes, sex, sex, sex, sex,
It is not necessary,


Debbie   November 20th, 2009 10:37 pm ET

They are all so wonderful. I would like to see Kelly win. She's come a long way from the beginning!


penny   November 20th, 2009 10:39 pm ET

i want kelly to win.


Barbara Litel   November 20th, 2009 10:42 pm ET

If it isn'a popularity contest and based on actual performances I think that Mya & Dimitri should win. Was very dissappointed in last weeks results & felt it was not done fairly.


Ginger   November 20th, 2009 10:44 pm ET

Donny Osmond all the way.


gail   November 20th, 2009 10:47 pm ET

Omg....I just adore this show....it's one of my favorites...... I wish they all could win....but I think the "Ball" is going to go to either Mya or Kelly...I love Donny...... but it's all about Mya and Kelly. I was sorry to see Joanna leave. I now know who she is. Ms. Krupa rocked that futuristic dance number....Kudos to Derek for creating such a fantastic number.....I also feel for the professional dancer as well. I don't think Louie, Kim or Dmitry has ever won. I remember Carrie Ann on In Living Color. I would love to see the Judges dance too. This show makes me want to dance. I just love it. I look forward to next season's show....I can go on and on.


Ann   November 20th, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Mya definately is a perfect amateur dancer! Donnie is second and Kelly third.


Judy   November 20th, 2009 10:55 pm ET

I hope Donnie and Kim win the trophy, they deserve it. As for Kelly she is a spoiled brat whining all the time and can't dance. Joanna and Derrick should be in the finals not Kelly. Go Donnie and Kim, you can do it!


susie   November 20th, 2009 10:55 pm ET

I do hope that Kelly wins. She has shown the most improvement and has made a dramatic change in her life. Go Kelly, Go !!!


Katie   November 20th, 2009 10:55 pm ET

Mya is the most talented contestant on DWTS I've ever seen. Her dances have the most difficult choreography and she & Dmitry are amazing together!


Annie   November 20th, 2009 10:56 pm ET

I would love Donny OR Kelly to win, but I would like to see a girl win for a change.


Kathy   November 20th, 2009 10:58 pm ET

I really enjoy the show and all the dancer's. I would like to see them all win. It;s really tough to pick a winner because they all start with a different amount of experience and background. I think personality ends up playing a huge part of who moves on each weekt


Liz   November 20th, 2009 10:58 pm ET

That Mya is in this contest is not fair. I would love to see Kelly win.


Jeff   November 20th, 2009 10:59 pm ET

What do you think of the fact that the producers are cutting away to a
commercial after Tom teases us about who is eliminated or safe?


JULIE   November 20th, 2009 11:00 pm ET

MYA is the best.
Kelly need growing-up.Donny an old time favorite!


Jeff   November 20th, 2009 11:00 pm ET

When do the stars finally hear the music that will be played while they dance?


Catherine   November 20th, 2009 11:07 pm ET

i voted for donny and kym to win the trophy ball on tuesday night. kelly and her partner, and mya and her partner were good, but not enough to win tuesday night, but i wish all three couples good luck.
Catherine


Tammy   November 20th, 2009 11:10 pm ET

I love the show, i never miss it. I feel that Mya and Dimitry are a fantastic couple and they deserve to win the trophy. Everyone this season was exciting to watch.


Judy Gaylord   November 20th, 2009 11:11 pm ET

My husband and I seldom miss watching Dancing With the Stars. In previous seasons we have picked different stars who we thought should win, but not this season, Kelly is by far the favorite to win in our home.
Even though they're all oh so good we feel that in many ways Kelly has made the most progress and watching her dance is an absolute delight!


gail   November 20th, 2009 11:11 pm ET

I wish there were 2 Balls...one for Mya and one for Kelly.


Jean   November 20th, 2009 11:11 pm ET

This is a dancing show not a personality show. How Kelly got this far is way beyond me. I feel the winner should be judged by the judges not the public. They should win by the judges scores and not by the call in votes. I have watched every one of the shows but... If Kelly wins this one I will never watch the show again.


Beverly   November 20th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

I enjoy the various dancers that appear on the show. Donny is doing very well. Mya and Dimitri are the stars of this show and win hands down
dancers but Donny is working hard and is doing a good job.


Josephg   November 20th, 2009 11:18 pm ET

Mya is beautiful, with all the right moves. She oozes sexuality without trying and her shy demeaner and beauty makes you just want to hug the television. Mya wins hands down!!!


Kat   November 20th, 2009 11:22 pm ET

I want Kelly to WIN !! She has really came along way ...All of them are very good ....Donnie ...Has been in the Entertainer Business, just like Mya ...thats not really fair ! Once again DWTS has done this again!!! Give someone else a chance to WIN....GO KELLY....SHOW THEM THAT U HAVE IT ....BECAUSE U DO !!!!! 🙂


JJhaee   November 20th, 2009 11:25 pm ET

DWTS is exciting and frustrating! It is supposed to be a show to pick the best dancers and its not! Donnie should be gone and Joanna Krupa should be in the finals!!! If Mya and Dimitre don't win I give up!


jeff L   November 20th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

No disrespect to any of the partiscipants, they all have gotten better with each performnance but lets be objective here; Mya and Dimitry is the most pregressive couple because they accept their criticism from the Judges and govern themselves accordingly; therefore the most improved from week to week. I would be supprised and disappointed if they didn"t win the compatition. THANKS!


Barbara   November 21st, 2009 12:05 am ET

I think the show is marvelous and it continues for a very long time .Who ever came up with the idea for the show, may God continue to bless. Go Mya and Dmitry I hope you Win !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cindy   November 21st, 2009 12:07 am ET

I have a definite favorite and will be heartroken if Kelly doesn't win. They are all excellent dancers but let's be fair. Both Mya and Donny are professional singers and as such have been dancing thier entire careers. Although it is reported that they didn't have any ballroom traiining, they have both admitted to taking dance lessons of some sort for many many years. Let's level the playing field. It is a well known fact that Kelly had a very difficult childhood. She has had many very serious setbacks in her personal life over the years but has had the fortitude and courage to clean up her act, pick herself up, dust herself off and ease on down the road to dignity and self-esteem. I am so proud of her and what she has accomplished in her short life. She just shines every time she dances and improves every single week. The very fact that she now calls herself a "Lady" is heartwarming. I'd like to see how Mya and Donny would do had they come into the competition with no training whatsoever. That is just my humble opinion. You go KELLY GIRL! Even if you don't win the competition, you have already won your self esteem back and are an inspiration to so many of your generation!


jeannie buxo   November 21st, 2009 12:11 am ET

mya should win, she takes the most risks with her dancing, its exciting, entertaining, everyone vote for MAYA her performance of LA ISLA BONITA blew me away!


Jesse Mendes   November 21st, 2009 1:26 am ET

I think Kelly should win. She embodies everything that Dancing with the Stars is about: a non-dancer who works hard and transforms themselves in the process. She's got heart, she's got magic, and out of all, she has improved the most. Donny has had plenty of previous dance experience, so it's not really fair that he win. Mya is a natural, and can do anything she wants whether she wins or not. This trophy belongs to Kelly!


debbie   November 21st, 2009 1:36 am ET

Joanna and Derek should definitely have been in the finals. Donny and Kelly should have been gone a while ago. Mya is by far the best dancer left and she deserves to win.


Mayra Torres   November 21st, 2009 1:51 am ET

I LOVE DONNY OSMOND....HE IS EXCELLENT!!!


Debbie   November 21st, 2009 1:52 am ET

KELLY ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!! SHE HAS TURNED INTO A LADY BEFORE OUR EYES. I THINK THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT. MYA AND DONNIE HAVE EXPERIENCE.


Cathy   November 21st, 2009 1:52 am ET

Mya should definitely win and she deserves to win! Luv her!


Melissa   November 21st, 2009 1:59 am ET

I am counting on Donny Osmond to win!!!!He has really put on a good show!!I I think everyone of the finalists are great, but there is only one Donny!!


Shelly   November 21st, 2009 2:01 am ET

Mya all the way, its about dancing not knowing people or popularity


Ceola Moore   November 21st, 2009 2:10 am ET

I think that Mya and partner deserves to win because they are consistent and very elegant dancers which represents Dancing With Stars very well.


Anna Rose   November 21st, 2009 2:12 am ET

Donny Osmond all the way! He has put a lot into his dance routines. Donny and Kim just looked great together on the floor. I would love to see "Donny" win the trophy. Go Donny & Kim and I will be cheering you on. Love to you both!


Ceola   November 21st, 2009 2:18 am ET

I think Mya deserves to win. She represents Dancing With TheStars
with grace and elegance.


Maria   November 21st, 2009 2:25 am ET

I thought DWTS is a pairing of a non-pro person to a professional dancing star. Donny and Mya are professionals in some other way but not pro dancers so they can belong to the finals Kelly typifies the perfect contestant. I knew she cried a lot but I think she really transformed to a dancer. Her pro partner Louis was perfect for her moods.I was surprised when Joanna and Derek were voted out but the public vote can over rule the judges votes .It might noi be fair but that is what a reality show is supposed to be. To me Joanna and Derek should be in the finals.


Mary Beth   November 21st, 2009 2:26 am ET

If Mya doesn't win, I won't be watching. Kelly is cute and Donny has seen his better days. Joanna and Derek and Aaron and Katrina should have been in the finals. This is about the best dancer not a popularity contest.


Anne Phillips   November 21st, 2009 2:43 am ET

It seems the season had just begun and now we are up to a real showdown! I'd love to see Kelly win – she has tried so hard and has really matured as a dancer. Mya is terrific, but she is a real pro and the concept here was supposed to be amateur/professional pairing.

Let's face it – the better known dancers have a fan base for whatever TV show they are on, or whatever they are famous for – and it is a real
popularity contest – the popular vote has little to do with dance.

I'd love to see next year start with each of the judges paired with a pro from the show, and show us by their dancing why they qualify as judges who are truly experts. Anybody else think so? Let the show know how you feel!


DD   November 21st, 2009 3:04 am ET

I've seen Mya struggle and grow just as much as Kelly doing those 9 weeks but Mya wants it more. Hip hop/Tap are totally different than ballroom dancing.

Donny Osmond has dances for two decades. I'm just wondering if Joanna Krupa wasn't voted off this week would she really be voting or rooting for Kelly? Her twitter and her personal agenda speaks volume...jealousy.

D-Mya good luck.....haters should be your motivator. It won't hurt to sleep in the studio again to get another perfect 10s.


Philip   November 21st, 2009 3:54 am ET

This show is becoming a big joke. What dancing? This is a popularity contest and you can tell clearly by reading a lot of comments above. Last year's results proved once and again that it is not dancing that can win a "star" this contest but how popular he or she is. This show is getting old and because it has proved that bad dancers can make it to the finals or semifinals, it will not be surprising to see its ratings drop and the show eventually cancelled.


JoAnn Jorden Tinsley   November 21st, 2009 5:08 am ET

While I believe Mya is the best dancer, I think it is important in competition, which is not classified by age, to give the person who is 30 years older, and has not only kept up but who has been aweome. I mean I am 50 and a young 50, I used to think Donny was a cute nerd, we are of the same generation. I, for the first time, actually have a crush on him now. He has kept up with 20 years olds and believe me, when you get to be 50, that is so impressive. Plus, he is very good, even when he makes mistakes, his energy, and showmanship is beyond reproach. It would make a lot of 50 year olds believe that our live are far from over, and that is an impressive legacy Donny. You have impressed me.


Pat Zeman   November 21st, 2009 6:12 am ET

I watched the "Dancing" semifinals last night and was I was appalled and shaken that Derrick and partner were eliminated. Their dancing was excellent during the whole season. At the end, their waltz made me cry. Looking at the "blogging," I'm not the only one who thinks so. Time after time I see favoritism taking the place of professionalism. So who's in the final? Yes Dimetri and partner belongs, but not that English cry baby and the ill- humored Donnie. Tons bloggers before and now are disgusted and are through with the program. I'm not going to sit through weeks of competition and see this happen as I'm not interested any more to see the public miss use their right to vote because of their stupidity. Dimetri is the best and I don't want to see him knocked out. Over 500 people in our complex will never watch this show again run by non-dancers. I know dancing and was taught properly (not at their level ofcourse). Evidently our great judges mean nothing and you, ABC should get 3 more qualified judges.


Annette   November 21st, 2009 7:16 am ET

Mya is excellent. She brings a nice touch of CLASS to dancing with the STARS. I am really enjoying watching Mya and her dance partner grow each week. I would like to say," Mya keep up the good work and the BEST is yet to come." I vote for Mya.


Tessa   November 21st, 2009 10:47 am ET

Joanne and Derek deserved to be in the finals! Too many good dancers have been eliminated just because they have a small fan base. This show is based on popularity contest more than the dance ability and the progress a celeb has made during the course ot the show!


AMY CAPUNITAN   November 21st, 2009 12:12 pm ET

I agree with Carol Ossie, Donny & Kym is the best ever. Donny has been dancing & singing since he was a child, his personality & experienced in the show business makes him famous up to now. mya could dance, but not as graceful as Kelly.

So, I would like Donny & Kym to get the trophy. By the way I am from Canada & I am an avid fun of Dancing with the Stars.

Thank you! GOOD LUCK DONNY & KYM


Jeff   November 21st, 2009 2:06 pm ET

I don't have anything against Kelly,however, I do feel as though Ozzie
has a strong influence in the outcome of the show this year. How else
could Derek and Joanna be eliminated and Kelly still be there?
On the other hand I do feel that even though Kelly's body is lacking
the beautiful dancer's format she is doing pretty well. The judges do
have an influence over the competition too. After all Derek and Joanna's top marks were only nines!


Eileen   November 21st, 2009 4:42 pm ET

I love Kelly, but its tme for a male to win so my vote would be for Donny, 2nd place Kelly , and Mya 3rd . looking forward to the next season.


Chelsie   November 21st, 2009 6:48 pm ET

I am amazed at how Donny has developed and grown as a dancer at this time in his life. I love Kelly but I don't feel her dancing is quite up to par. Mya was perfect from the first show. Mya is a fantastic dancer because she is a professional dancer. She has appeared in videos, movies and on Broadway. I believe she was in the movie Chicago dancing to a song called Cell Block Tango. Donny is a singer who does a little dancing. Mya is a professional dancer who does a little singing. So my votes will go to Donny. Incidentally, Carrie Ann, it's Osmond not Osmand.


Dan   November 21st, 2009 10:04 pm ET

This is actually a reality show, it's not all a dancing competition or a popularity contest although I think it's mostly about popularity. I wish people would understand that and I thought they would by now. The winner should be someone who is a great dancer, works very harder, has lots of showmanship, determination despite everything going in the person's life, connection with the partner, the audience and the viewers. The winners are usually the ones who entertain people the most. To me, that is Donny Osmond. He has great showmanship, works extremely hard without complaining, he's had a broken toe since week 3 but he's still keeping on, he connects with the viewers and audience and have great chemistry with his partner! Everyone loves him! His partner Kym is wonderful and adorable. I feel bad because this is her third time being in the finals and she placed second twice. I'd love to see what she looks like with a trophy in her hand! Not just that but I think she's paid her due.

Kelly is a sweetheart and she has a great personality and she tries so hard. But her rehearsals doesn't convince me that she's a winner with her constant swearing, crying, distractions from things that her partner had to make her put them in a box and locked away. She lacks confidence. She has some but needs more. She seems to connect with the audience but I feel her attitude need a little more improvement. I think she's doing better compared to day 1 but she could be better as far as attitude goes in the rehearsals.

Mya is an outstanding dancer. To me, there's no excitement because of that. I don't see her improving because she was already too great at the beginning. She was front runner at least 5 times this season with very high scores. I don't see a lot of emotions from her or the connection with her partner. Don't get me wrong, she's great and humble but doesn't seem to be coming out of her shell completely at this point and I don't feel the excitement when I see her dancing. I'd always think, "ok, great, she's a dancer already and she'll do some great things." Nothing unexpected is coming out of her.

I thought all 3 should be in the finals but we have one true winner in my opinion.

Go Donny and Kym!


Donald L Allen   November 22nd, 2009 4:08 am ET

BJ Emlong   November 22nd, 2009 9:51 pm ET

I am completely disgusted with the fiasco of Dancing With the Stars. To allow more than one vote from an obviously BIASED audience who chooses to vote popularity vs talent is ludicrous. Kelly and Donnie are JOKES compared to Derek and his partner and even Arron, who at least showed a semblance of agility. I sincerely hope that either 1) the way in which a winner is chosen changes or 2) the show is canceled. The judges patronizing comments to Kelly, who made more mistakes in one routine than all the others put together, gave her an unfair edge. When any of the others made mistakes....they were brutal in their comments. It showed blatant partiality to less than stellar talent and ability. Shame on all of you for allowing this to become a popularity contest .If it isn't about who is the best dancer....than rename the show to DANCING WITH THE STARS POPULARITY CONTEST.


Ann Harris   November 22nd, 2009 10:20 pm ET

Go Donny – I have been a fan of yours since I was 7 years old – I hope you take the mirror ball trophy!


melissa   November 22nd, 2009 11:00 pm ET

you got rid of another excellent dancer Joanna and Derdk.The others dont deserve to be in the finals except Mya and Demitrie.

I would like to see Donnie wins ... I think he has done quite well ... Considering he is learning ... My second choice would be Mya ... I hated to see Joanna leave ... I thought it would have been Kelly .... Well anyway maybe she will be next ....

I'd like to see Kelly win !!! I think she's really come a long way & showed improvement every week. It's not fair cause Mya is a dancer.
Go Kelly !!!

anybody but mya!! she's so disrespectful to her partner...treats him like a 2nd class citizen ... she's so full of herself, she thinks she knows better than he does! no, i don't like her.....get rid of her plz.

Mya should win she is the best dancer BUT Joanna should be there to compete against her. These two should be dancing for the ball. I don't agree with the call in votes. Its not fair. Every season when my friends and family vote sometimes before you use a single vote a recording says you have reached your call in limit and you haven't even voted for the week. I feel this has caused some unfair results. Derrek is by far the best professional and Joanna was great it would have been a real contest between her and Mya with either being a true winner. I grew up with a crush on Donnie so I think he is great but aaron Carter was a better dancer. It is a dance show. The judges should have more weight. I mean Kelly really ?? Louis is a great dancer but get real Kelly is nowhere near Mya or Joanna.

I would like to see Mya win. She has such talant She showed what SHE is Made of. Her danceing is right on top. Yea MYA you go GIRL!!

the only way that either of these couples can be determined the winners is by the freestyle. I thought Dancing With The Stars is about who's the best dancer, and not the most popular with the DWTS audience.

Kelly Kelly Kelly! Everyone loves an underdog, she's really grown through out the whole process too, think it would mean more to her than anyone else – Goodluck Kelly!

There seem to be some misconceptions about the agenda on DWTS.
Originally, it was who was the best dancer – now it's who has the most fans. SIX votes PER PHONE. It is cart-blanch for fraud and stuffing the ballot box in the real world. AND, I just heard over LK Live that there are DRESS REHEARSALS so everyone can come off sounding glib and spontaneous. What other facets of the show are fixed? Kelly and Donnie HAVE worked hard – but both look like amatuer night at the bijou. Obviously Derek and Joanna were robbed – but then when has fairness ever changed anything when mega votes are given to uniformed, nonprofessional, drooling groupies.

Donny and Kym all the way, He will win it!!!!!!

I am for DONNY all the way! Love Kelly's progress and Mya's dancing, but face it, Donny is a grandfather who is keeping up with celebs that are his kid's age and doing it with a broken toe! Most of us would be hobbling just trying to walk. I agree that Mya is basically a pro dancer, whereas Donny is a singer who does some dancing. You forget his age because he looks better than most of us 10 years his junior.
