I'm not saying that was all Sasha's fault because as a very young athlete, Simone had no spice, no sex appeal, very short limbs for dramatic effect and little of the IT factor plus, when the ultimate comparison to Laurie came, almost anyone was bound to fall short. However, Simone's routines did not play to her considerable strengths, IMO and that fell squarely on Sasha. He does not have the creative talent many of the others have and that was a factor long before Simone, IMO.

I respect your opinion although I feel Val is the one that has no creative bones in his body.  As far as Normani goes, she did the same routine every week.  High kick - check!  2 High kicks - check!  Normani could have blown that competition wide open had she had a creative choreographer as well.  Had she had Derek or Mark, there would have been no need for TPTB to highlight Normani with her "feel good" video packages each week. The "poor me I'm traveling all the time and this is hard and I have no dance experience" got old and frankly turned me off of her and Val as well.  TPTB wanted people to feel for her so they would vote for her.  What kind of video packages did they do for Simone?  Negative tone to all of them.  Heck, they did the same thing with Nick, everything was negative for him.  Another case in point... Bonner got positive video packages.  And, we all know that Bonner stayed longer than Nick.  Neither of them were winner category but Bonner was not better than Nick on the dance floor!

As for Derek and his last season, it was this same thing.  Marilu has been vocal about what was shown in their rehearsal video packages.  Her packages were always on the negative side as if that was all that happened in rehearsals... her and Derek having differences of opinion and not having any fun at all.  According to her, that was about 5% of their total time together. They had great rehearsals and lots of fun times.

It may be a "live" show but TPTB still do a whole lot of manipulation to get the results they want.  They can give them horrible songs for the dance type they are doing and they can edit the video packages any way they want.  I hated what I saw in Derek's last season and hadn't planned on watching any more.  The only reason I watched last season was because of Nick. Once he was out, I didn't watch anymore because of the "Normani/Val" love manipulation.  Thankfully, the viewers caught on and didn't do what the producers wanted and gave the championship to Rashad!

There is a reason that most of the favorite dances of all time include Derek, Mark and Cheryl.  They bring awesome choreography to their dances and bring out the best in their partners.

I'm not watching anymore since IMO, it has so much manipulation by TPTB.
Tremendous respect for your insights, knowledge of the show and lack of bias. Props to you and I really wish you would watch the season so we could discuss it, here? Please reconsider when the celebrities are announced because 2 out of 3 of your best pros are back. Let's slay the commentary with the sisters of this thread. Think about it question

IMO, the show is no longer about learning this gorgeous style of dancing. It's truly a reality show, with an eye towards the coveted demographic that brings in the most advertising dollars! Sadly with the ringers and the editing by TPTB, the biased judging and the showmance they try to push every season, I haven't watched an episode in years!

I have a better chance of quitting the Bachelor franchise than DWTS. I enjoy the dances/choreo too much esp. the female pros so I just let the TPTB manipulations slide. It is what it is at this point IMO. I have accepted that some things will never change on this show like TPTB pimping Val IMO and giving him a ringer. laugh out loud laugh out loud

Hope this is finally Sharna's year. After they stuck her with that creep IMO last season, I had hoped that they would give her a decent partner this time. Her silence is not promising though. hmmm

I think Val's partner is Bettanee Hamilton and for Sharna is either Lamar Odom or hopefully a Curry brother
