Compare Brandy and Bristol: paso doble week 9

Last night on “Dancing with the Stars” Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas received the same score for their paso doble as Brandy Norwood and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Did both teams deserved a 27 (9, 9, 9)?

I think Palin isn’t particularly sharp, her legs lack full extension and her face still looks pretty blank. She doesn’t have the crisp staccato moves of the paso doble.

  • Week 9
  • “Gimme More” by Britney Spears
  • Score: 27 (9, 9, 9)
  • Week 9
  • “Firework” by Katy Perry
  • Score: 27 (9, 9, 9)

I've written for the Rafu Shimpo, LA Weekly, LA Times, and, more recently, the Pasadena Weekly and I formerly worked for a dot-com more interested in yodeling than its customers.

  1. The fact that Brisol Palin remains a competitor is damaging the reputation of the entire DWTS Show. She clearly has improved, going from the flexibiltiy of a 2X4 to a swimming noodle, but there is no possible way that her dancing is near the level of Brandy. The individuals that are voting for her have no interest in the art of dancing, just the art of politics.

    • Hi, Anne McPherson…

      I agree. You can read more about this on as I wrote about the results:

      DWTS results: The politics of dance

      What I fear is that we’ll see more political or politically connected figures on DWTS.

      I had hoped that Palin would blossom like Kelly Osbourne, but she has not.

      It’s really unfortunate, but this is what the current viewers want.
