what do I know?

Wow, two couples I voted for in the bottom three. That's harsh. I was so worried Jessi was going home; she's definitely among my favorite girls. It's always sad to see them cry, but if I had to pick, it would've been Faina. I think her performance suffered from having a somewhat reserved personality.

Among the guys, I was shocked, but not disappointed by the judges' decision to send Jimmy home over Cedric. I think both Jessi and Cedric have been brought down by their ballroom partners. Because the voting is by couple (and I'm already dialing four to six numbers each week) I have to base my calls on the overall performance of the duo. So I feel like a bit of a hypocrite when I complain that Cedric has been in the bottom three each week; I didn't vote for him...but I probably would have if voting was by individual dancer. I just think he's amazing and if he can get his hands under control (and avoid too many weeks of ballroom) he'll do just fine. Ultimately, I think this competition can do more for him than it would for Jimmy, whose formal training and talent should be sufficiently nudged along by making it to the top 20. Cedric's got a lot of potential and a lot to learn, so I'm glad he's sticking around...for another week, at least.

Of course, I have no idea what I'm talking about and absolutely no sense of the dance industry. Good thing this is partially up to me, right?
