Dancing with the Stars Week 6 Rankings Motown Week: Judges Play Favorites?

Dancing with the Stars Motown night was a bumpy ride for some and a comeback night for others. But was it fair? Not quite. It seemed the judges played their favorites even during the Motown Marathon. They know who they want in the finals, and their favoritism was on full display as they under and overscored the entire evening. One of their worst transgressions was crucifying Roshon Fegan for his rumba, and that probably sealed his fate. Although Gladys received the lowest score (sad too since she herself is a Motown legend), Roshon will probably find himself in the dance duel.  Katherine Jenkins sits atop the leaderboard, with Jaleel White and William Levy not far behind.

Things got off to a nice enough start with Smokey Robinson, Martha Reeves and The Temptations performing a three song medley to open the show. But as the couples made their intro down the stairs, something distracted the camera man. Instead of shooting Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd, he focused on a trumpet playing band member!  Throughout the night we listened to some great music performed by these legends but at the same time we had to suffer through some of these dances that just don’t mix with Motown music.  Even Motown founder Berry Gordy acknowledged from his seat in the audience he never would have imagined 50 years ago that his music would one day be celebrated on a ballroom dance show. And with good reason.  After the regular dances was the Motown Marathon which shuffled things up on the leaderboard after the night’s regular scores. Read More...
