    I was shocked over last night's results, too.

    I was speaking with a friend of mine and he was saying he didn't care for Elizabeth because she was 'trying to hard' - kinda giving off a sense of desperation. I don't agree with him, but I can see how she didn't seem as personable as Amber and Corbin and some of the other dancers.

    I think Amber's going to struggle because her knees have been getting worse. This will likely limit her from a technical standpoint. I do hope she makes it into the final 3 instead of Jack and Bill.

    Leah seems to be 'peaking'... I'm actually surprised she's made t this far.....

    I hope the ultimate winner is someone who can really dance, not just one of the contestants with a huge fan base. Given Amber's knee problems, that will probably have to be Corbin.

    I just tuned in a few moments ago, and there he was! How great! Maks and Val are both very articulate and precise; I've noticed this as they train their stars.

    Agree! It was nice to see him. And may I mention how absolutely gorgeous he looked in that suit while others were tearing off their shirts? I couldn't take my eyes off HIM!

    Am I mistaken? Isn't it usually a final 3, not 4?

    As much as I've enjoyed Bill Engvall, I'm still shocked that he's in the final 4. Some friends who were fans before the show agree that he shouldn't be in the finals.

    I feel the same way about Jack O. being in the finals...I didn't enjoy him though.

    When popularity keeps a really mediocre contestant going, it makes for a dissatisfying final. They interviewed the show runner, and he said that it's frustrating for the people running the show as well. He said that the lack of a separate results show has affected the rhythm of the show and how the results are tabulated (votes are from the previous week, but judges' scores are from the current week).

    The effects are somewhat modulated by the fact that Engvall seems genuinely humble about the situation, and he is aware that he is skating by on fan votes rather than talent. He implies that this is awkward for him as well. But I don't know what the effect will be on viewership if he or Jack wins.

    Corbin seems as genuinely humble about the judges comments. He seems like such a nice guy and excellent dancer.

    I also wanted to comment on Derek...as you know I am not a big Derek fan but I've noticed quite a change in him. I think Amber has been a super student for him and has taught him some life lessons. I think she has so many talent & gifts but is also humble about them. I use to know someone that was tremendously gifted. He was a great "off the cuff" speaker. He loved it when people would praise him for his speech. He would comment that he only spent about 10 minutes preparing. After a while he kept relying on his laurels and people were catching on and got bored with him. Another friend spent hours preparing his speeches and was never satisfied. He would speak so from his heart. I think for some reason this is why I see a difference in Derek, I could be wrong but he seems to be so humble this season. I noticed last night how he stepped back and presented Amber....I think he is just in awe of her.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Any surprises about the final 3?? I would be OK with either Amber or Corbin winning, honestly leaning more toward Corbin. Your thoughts???

    I thought it was very satisfying. In fact, I was happy about everyone who was in the final. The dances were wonderful.

    My only problem is that the lights and noise are so exaggerated. I can't enjoy this din as much as I could if we just had music and cheering. I'd have to wear earplugs if I were there live!
