There's $50 I saved

It's no secret I love Dancing with the Stars. Seriously, it's the best show on TV. Everything about it works, including the fact that both the competition and results shows are live.

There have been some fabulous moments: Mark Ballas' love for Michael Jackson and dancing to his songs whenever possible, Apolo and Julianne's cha-cha to Salt N Pepa's "Push It", Shawn Johnson's freestyle dance, and basically every time Maksim bares his chest. Yum.

Even the results shows are great because they usually pull in cool acts and have the pros dance during the chorus of the song. Hello, pros dancing the paso doble when Def Leppard performed "Pour Some Sugar on Me"! A personal favorite for me was seeing Heart a couple weeks ago, too. If the music is just meh, I can usually count on the dancing being stinkin' awesome.

Tonight, the dancers couldn't redeem the mess that was Taylor Swift.

I get it - multi-platinum Grammy winner, talented songwriter, hot and smokin', blah blah blah. But the girl cannot stay on the same pitch if it's longer than a quarter note. I can't even remember who danced to her song because her voice was so bad. And it didn't look like a fluke - she wasn't sick, the mic was working just fine, her band did everything right.

Guess who won't ever buy a ticket to watch her live?

First of all, THANK YOU for stating that Julianne and Apolo's cha-cha was the most amazing dance on the show - ever. I get angry when they go back to previous seasons and don't mention that masterpiece.

And I watched about 20 seconds of Taylor Swift singing and couldn't quite figure it out. I didn't know the song, so I was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, but it definitely sounded odd (to say the least).

I agree with you and Stacey, Apolo's cha-cha!?!?! Amazeballs.

I love DWS, we need to text while we watch it. It'll be our date night.
