A Dance Marathon on 'Dancing With the Stars' (VIDEO)

A Dane Marathon on 'Dancing With the Stars'It was Rock 'n' Roll night on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC), and for the episode's finale, the contestants found themselves stuck between a rock ... and a hard place. 'DWTS' abandoned its traditional format to feature a dance marathon. The contestants all had to get out on the dance floor together, and there was nowhere to hide.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]


During the marathon, the judges eliminated the players one by one. The last couple standing would gain an additional ten points for the night. Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy had the highest score from the regular portion of the evening -- they got 26 points out of 30 for their rendition of the tango. But this success wouldn't necessarily translate to the more endurance-focused marathon segment.

One by one, the players were picked off by the judges, and were removed from the spotlight. Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunsyaka were the first couple to be shut down, followed by Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas. As the contest wound down to its conclusion, things started to get tense. Did Brandy and Maks have what it would take to win again? Would Audrina and Tony take it all? Only one pair could triumph, and by the end, they would be standing alone on the dance floor. Who would get the perfect ten?

I have watched DWTS since it began. However, this might be my last year watching it. The production and direction are horrendous. Who can watch when the camera shots are all over the place. They must have a half a dozen cameras switching on and off constantly. Half the time you can't see the dancer's feet, or appreciate the flow of the dance because the camera work is giving me a headache. And, what idiot is responsible for picking the music ? How could anyone dance an erotic tango to a rock song ? Or do a samba to to a song that doesn't have a samba tempo and rhythm. The production staff should wise up and realize not everyone who watches this show is is a complete novice.

I think the judges are biased for Brandi and also for Rick, and neither of them shows improvement from week to week. I agree with a lot of you about Brandi - she is a spoiled brat! I hope she goes soon. I also thought Kurt and Anna were great and totally disagree with the judges. . .they were way too hard on them - "6" give me a break! Audrina is like a cardboard cutout dancing. . . no emotion showing at all, and she is an actress?? Jennifer and Derek were also very good and the judges were way too hard on them. . . Jennifer looked like she got a little dizzy with all those turns. . . I thought she was going to pass out or something (like Marie Osmond!)

I believe the night was geared toward Brandi being on the top of the leaderboard. . . WHY?? I don't understand.

This is suppose to be a dance contest, not a popularity contest. The judges are not giving good scores to those who deserve them, and good scores to those who don't. It's fixed, Brandy,Bristol, and others are complaining about Jennifer getting good scores. That's why they did this week, & Jen didn't. I have seen others mess up & get good scores. Everyone has good & bad weeks.Derek is their best dancer. Bristol should go this week.

Bristol Palin finally got eliminated because she can't dance. Now the entire show should go away because it is nothing more than a commercial fest for abc with no redeeming value of any kind.
