"Donyelle - eh"
I am not an expert on dance, so I don't have the technical terms to discuss the following.

It seems to me that Donyelle's moves are not quite finished sometimes. She seems to have trouble keeping up with her partner, especially when strong, sudden leaps are required. When she's dancing solo, those don't bother me as much, but when she has a partner, they are blatant.

It seems that some of her original pizazz has disappeared. Exhaustion? Not sure, but her performances have annoyed me lately. I would definitely place her fourth.

Don't know if it's exhaustion, burn out, or the competition has passed her up, but she seems to have lost something. It's probably exhaustion and burnout, because her earlier material is much better than now (I saved the tapes).

Hi old friend, it's hard to find you these days. Where are you hanging out, Big Brother?

I agree somewhat on Donyelle, she's definitely been slowing down over the course of the ongoing weeks. I still love her thuogh but Benji or Travis have this wrapped up.

Hi CSTL. Good to hear from you too.

Yes, I'm on BB, but not posting much. Not much to say that hasn't already been said over there.

Have to say that this show has been a lot of fun. Can't believe I'm just now discovering it.

At least on this show, the judges offer up some points that the contestants can use. It's more than AI's Randy's typical, "just doesn't do it for me" or Simon's "song choice" comments.

I like that Nigel is excited about how dance is being brought to the masses. Hopefully that enthusiasm by the general public will carry over to local dance performances as well as a surge in people signing up for classes.

Honestly, I think the biggest thing for her is her foot injury.

I tried so hard to be very impartial and thought this girl would acquire grace at some point in time. She may have learned a lot of moves but it is so plain to see that everything is a stretch for her, it shows. It's rather painful to watch someone who's all over the place and just looking like one of those non-stop wannabe's in a crowded nightclub.

Donyelle is proof that you don't have to be gracefully elegant on the dance floor, just have a whole lotta family and relatives that have all the time to spend calling in.

Hi miss ganda.

Lack of grace. That's what I was trying to say.

Surely she will be fourth. Can you imagine how her being in the finals has affected the better dancers eliminated before her? Ouch.

Amen, miss_ganda. I completely agree about Donyelle. I'm so shocked that she made it this far into the show...

<Donyelle is proof that you don't have to be gracefully elegant on the dance floor, just have a whole lotta family and relatives that have all the time to spend calling in.>

Actually, I think the last part of your sentence could more easily be applied to Benji than Donyelle. Who do we see the most of in the audience? Benji's family. Who passes out Benji signs to any audience member who wants one? Benji's family. Who starts the Benji chants every time? ... well, I think you get my point.

I don't hold it against Benji. In fact, he's one of my favorites.

However, just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is grace. For me, my eye has been drawn to Donyelle from the auditions forward. Perhaps it is because I'm not a dancer, that I can just sit back and enjoy the performance without worrying about the technicalities. All I can say is that I have rewatched every single Donyelle solo, and Benji/Donyelle performance over and over, and then over again. I love watching the two of them together, and I loved each of her solos. So for whatever reason, her dancing moves me, much more than any of the other top 20.

I'm neither a friend nor family member to her, but she got my votes every time. And I have never voted in a reality show competition before.

I do agree that her broken toe seems to have slowed her down, but I still enjoyed the Viennese Waltz she and Benji performed the other night and thought it was lovely.

I get a kick out of rewatching the Heidi/Benji dances, but I am more inspired and thrilled by Benjelle rewatches. So romantic.

If I were an expert, I probably would think otherewise—but I really like the two of them.

same here, i like the way she moves. she has some quality that just draws me in. i'm not sure what it is, but it seems like she dances with so much emotion and that makes it easier for me--an untrained viewer--to connect with her. i really loved Benjelle--i think they were both better when they danced together.

I'm neither a friend nor family member to her, but she got my votes every time. And I have never voted in a reality show competition before.

i voted for her too--she isn't going to win, but i really enjoy watching her. i'm not a friend or family member either, but she does look like she could be my sister.


thank you arkiegrl

For me, Donyelle lost her spark and started sinking down after her initial split from Benji. That was right around the same time as her foot injury too, but suddenly, without Benji, it looked like a lot more work for Donyelle. Her dancing wasn't as effortless from that point forward.
