The PCS scores I/K received are scandalous. Both of them looked extremely stiff and serious throughout the Latin dance, and thoroughly lacked sizzle or vitality to it. Nothing should feel like a board room in Latin.
I have no problem with levels for V/M and D/W but I do not understand levels and marks given P/B. P/B were, in my opinion, much worse than D/W. I think P/B were also worse than W/P.
NorthernDancers, you told it much better than I can. I completely agree with you.
The bigger mystery to me is I/K's score. Their levels seem a bit generous for what they did out there today. I thought they should have been behind C/L.
Actually folks, I think the judging was fair for V/M - D/W. If the whole Canadian fix thing (because of the TS is CAN) was in place, V/M would have gotten a higher score, me thinks. (And W/P would have scored higher). It's relatively close, folks. I know we're used to smaller margins but 1.33 is not a huge margin to overcome.
I think the couples that benefited most today were P/B (some, not excessive hometown judging) and I/K (where did those levels come from?).

I believe V and M deserved to be in first probably a bit more of a lead though in my opinion. I do think P and B were overmarked; yes D and W were tight but I actually think I preferred Weaver and Poje over P and B though I do think being in France helps P and B. Yeah for DOnahoe and Hubbell but I did feel sorry for B and S to fall at World's on a day when their teammates all struggled - sad. With the fall comes quite possibly losing a third russian dance team. I and K will be hard pressed to stay ahead of C and L and B and S probably won't catch the Shibs with that fall.
Uh, I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed C/L, I really like this team.

According to the protocol, B/S aren't so low because of the fall(since it didn't happen on an element) but because of low levels.
Just because one prefers one team over the other, doesn't mean the results are corrupt!
