On bringing home that big ole disco ball 🙂 See, I was right in calling this the Mark Ballas Show! I really thought it was going to be Gilles. I guess since they said there was less than a one percent difference in votes between the two, they both kind of won.

I always feel anticlimactic at this point. I’m sad.

And the next season isn’t starting until September?… It seems like light-years, but I guess it’s only after the summer during which, for me at least, there will be beaucoup de ballet and ballroom competitions. I’m still a little depressed though…

  1. To me, I”m very happy! Shawn showed improvement, to me Gilles did not. He plateaued out after week two and didn't show any improvement.

    Though I do agree with you, it's time to give people like Tony (he lucked out this season), Jonathan, Edyta, and Alec better partners

  2. Don't forget, there's also SYTYCD….and Louis Van Amstel is a choreographer for them this season….and Shane Sparks is back, and Wade Robeson….I'm trying to focus on that now, and hoping I don't start to care for any of the contestants as much as I have in previous seasons….I need some time off from having my heart broken!

  3. I enjoyed all three of the dancers in the finale, and I'm happy for Shawn and Mark. Gilles is now not just the naked guy, and Melissa got to have a happier experience than her previous reality show outing.
    We'll just have to get our dance fix with SYTYCD! Will you be doing any recapping or posting about the summer show? I really enjoyed your posts last year.

    Thank you Joanna! Yes, I will definitely be posting on SYTYCD! I'm so glad you enjoyed my posts last year 🙂

    Oooh, I didn't know Louis Van Amstel will be choreographing for SYTYCD this coming season! Definitely something to look forward to! Oh no, I hope you weren't too upset. I know how much you liked Gilles. Well, I mean, they basically tied anyway — come on, less than one percent!

    I knew you'd be very happy, Katrina 🙂

  7. Oh my gosh I was convinced that Gilles was going to win! I'm so excited for Shawn!
