America got it wrong this week. I hate to say it, but Marie or Jane should have gone home tonight. Sabrina was the best. This isn't the first time America messed up. Remember poor Albert?

I am completely upset with the fact that she is gone. She was by far the best dancer of the competition. But (not how I feel just have seen elsewhere) that people felt that she had an unfair advantage. Because that she had a dancing background. I have DVR and I kept rewinding thinking that the ending would change. But it never did. I wish she would come back.

I was hoping Marie would be classy and withdraw, giving her place to Sabrina. Of course there is nothing wrong with her NOT doing that, but it would have been a good move.

I agree that Sabrina should not have gone home this week. Jane's dance last night was pretty bad. The worst jive I have ever seen on that show. It just wasn't her dance. I don't think Marie should have gone. The problem with these shows, especially DWTS, the voters have control and the voters are fans. They have their favourites. In the first season Kelly Monaco beat out John O'Hurley because she was a soap star with lots of fans. After a re-match, John beat Kelly. Then there was Master P. Puleeeze! How in the world did he stay in so long? The fans. It's a popularity contest and always will be. There is no way around that except to stop letting the fans vote. There was a one-time show called Skating With Celebrities. There was no fan voting. The judges did the only voting so the results were fair and just.

Or maybe change the scoring so the judges, who know what's really good, get more input. What about 2/3 for the judges and 1/3 for the fans? Do you think that might fix it?

That is terrible that Sabrina got voted off the show as she was better than the other dancers there. Monday was not her best performance but overall she was doing very well and more consistent than anyone else. They should not allow the fans to vote or the judges should make the final decision on who should leave the show. I bet that one website has something to do with it again like they did with American Idol.

I think Marie or Cameron should have gone home tonight. Overall, last night was the worst episode yet of this season. Jane got terrible music for the jive, it wasn't nearly as peppy as it should have been. And Cameron also got a raw deal with his music. I think the reason Sabrina was eliminated is because everyone thought she was safe. So they voted for the ones they thought needed the most votes. Unfortunately, a lot of people thought that way, and Sabrina suffered. After all, she was the best of the bunch, surely she would be safe. Not so, and it's a shame. Even if they all improved in the coming weeks, they still wouldn't have been as good as she was. If only there were a judge's veto! LOL, I think Carrie Ann almost cried! Overall, I think almost everyone knows Marie should have been the one going home tonight. Hopefully they'll have an all star addition, and they'll invite her back. It's just too bad.

Even thou I am not a fan of Sabrina. I agree that she should have stayed. She is a better dancer than the others. I just didn't like her "I'm better than everyone else." attitude. I was really thinking it would be Marie or Jane to go home. But like everyone else has stated. This is a popularity contest and many probably figured she would be safe. What's funny is I had forgot to do my email voting because I fell asleep. So I was nervous thinking Jennie might go home. Jennie is my favorite and have been voting for her. So I am glad she stayed.

How about if they did the voting like they did on So You Think You Can Dance? The bottom two from viewer votes and the judges get to save one, ultimately getting the final choice?

I actually made that same suggestion on a different discussion before I saw your response to me. How funny is that? I agree if they did the voting the way they do "so you think you can dance" it would be alot more fair.

There is something really really wrong with what happened. Sabrina was the best from the beginning....Marie should have gotten the boot...or Jane. It's crazy!

Well I guess I am going to be the only one to say I fealt she deserved to go home. Yes she is a awesome dancer, no doubt about it, but she is too aggressive and too hard. She has no elegance, no soft lines, no feminine touch at all. She is way over board and too aggressive. I agree jane got stinky music, and we must remember she is 57 yrs old, given that fact I think she did smashingly well. The jive is a extremely difficult dance for someone in their 20's let alone almost 60. I think the ones that have improved the most are cameron, jennie, and definately mel. Mel was my least favorite as she was very unlady like as well she has progressed so very nicely and i actually loved her these last two weeks.

This is the first full season that I have actually watched this show only because I think the voting is crazy. I think that Wayne should have been gone a long time before he was voted off, but I do believe that all that have gone up till this week have been rightly voted off. I taped the show and wouldn't let anyone tell me what happened until I saw it and when I did I was absolutely shocked. I do think that she should have gone to the finals. Hopefully Marie or Jane will be next.

I am shocked and very sad about this. It's so much worse than when Albert was eliminated because, cute as he was, he was not at the same level of dancing she has been at since day one. Don't get me wrong, I hated it when Albert left, but I almost feel like I'm in mourning over this one. Jane and then Marie for me, I think, for the next eliminations. And it's not to say that I don't like them (although I'm getting a little bit tired of each). It's just that everyone remaining is so good you have to cut where you can. Poor Sabrina was visibly shocked and I felt for her. I also felt for Cameron because he obviously felt so guilty to be staying instead of her. In fact I was watching this on mute and when he dropped his head like that I couldn't tell at first whose name had been called. I can't help wondering if the producers somehow had a hand in this to try to get viewers more involved? Probably not. I'm sure it's just what some others have said, that people used their votes for others because they assumed she was safe. I guess now I'm pretty firmly on Helio to win. And I can't wait to see what happens next week!

This season has been the worst one so far. I haven't been able to call in one time. I try every week until they cut off the phone lines and have only made it in one time. I think some people will just give up after the failure to be able to vote on the phone.
