Dancing Down Under!! If you're a Dancing With The Stars geek like me, you might remember Damian Whitewood from past season's on our American version of the show. (He's also Peta Mergatroid's boyfriend. (Is that really her last name?? Heavens to Mergatroid!! Lol.)
Anyway, in the land of kangaroos, Damian is dancing with Danielle Spencer, who is Russell Crowe's wife. (I'm sure there's 6 degrees to Kevin Bacon in there somewhere ; )
I think the production values are a lot better on our American version of the show, and WOW they do a lot more filler over there, yapping with each contestant.
I do like that the Australian judges are a bit more low key though. Bruno's gotten outta control with the performance art for each critique and Carry Ann seems more incoherent each season. And don't get me started with Len's underscoring, ugh...
I also think Mel B is a better co-host than Brooke...more relaxed and fun. (Brooke seems a bit cue card dependent. hee.)
What do you think? Australia or America? Who's your pick to win this season? Let me know: DianeBanks@clearchannel.com I think Katherine Jenkins - she's great!! (Hope little Roshie makes it to the finals - how cute are Roshon & Chelsie?)
