    I am very dissapointed in Julianne and Max, I guess their true colors are coming out! I believe Melissa can dance as well as they do and they are professionals! She was asked at the last minute to join the show and she accepted. Go girl, go! She is a natural. A beautiful person, personality and warming smile!
    No body has said anything about Julianne's partner.


    Melissa is doing awesome -- yes,she's had previous experience in ballet, but a lot of other contestants have had some sort of training in ballet, hip hop, Olympians, boy banders, etc. People are just jealous of her. Get over it everyone! She's hot and she's good!


    I agree the comments need to stop. Kristi was an Olympian who also competed in pairs skating before she took on her single skating full force. I used to skate and I will tell you I had to do many hours of ballet and ice dancing which includes doing dances on ice w/ a partner. I think Kristi did a great job and deserved to be there and I believe Melissa deserves to be there as well. I only watched a few episodes here and there of DWTS. Now that Melissa is on the show I watch every Monday and Tues!


    Lay off her guys. Melissa is entertains us greatly with
    her dancing and that's what important. Could you Maksim and
    Julianne improve more the ratings without her in
    this season? She's hot. Every contestant has some sort of
    training in their life like the band boys, Lance and Fatone.
    Kristi and other Olympians have trainings that one way or
    another help in their dancing, but you have to consider too
    dancing TALENT. If you have no dancing bone in your body,
    you can learn the moves but you won't excite the audience except in a comical way in which the producers have envisioned and had built the show.


    Julianne and Max need to stop whining and concentrate on themselves!!!


    What a joke! Melissa came onto the show at the last minute and she has the personality and willingness to learn from a great pro, Tony! How do you explain Brooke's talent last season? I used to be a fan of Max and Julianne, but now you get to see the claws come out. Go Melissa! Make Twxas proud!


    I cannot stand this show. The only reason I watch it is for Melissa... I LOVE HER (Jason can go to he**). She is boosting the ratings...which is what the producers want anyway. As for dancing ability...this show covers all ages, all levels of is not ever going to be "fair".


    I agree with Anon. I have been watching since season 1 and every season there is someone who has had some sort of dance experience. Whether it's hip hop or ballet or figure's not ballroom. I have been a ballet, tap, jazz, and contemporary dancer for years and I have never ballroom danced. I would have to work just as hard as everyone else to learn the technique and the choreography. The only advantage would be performing infront of people...and doesn't every actor and actress have that advantage...pretending to be someone that they're not? I love the professional dancers, but come on give Melissa a break.


    Lol, how many seasons have these pros been dancing? Seriously, every season, there is someone on the show that has had dancing experience. Every single boy bander have, Drew, Joey. The cheetah girl has. Mario Lopez, and that spice girl has. The wrestler girl did ballet as well. Last season it was Kristi Yamaguchi that was getting the flak. Just because they can dance doesn't mean they know ballroom. GET OVER IT! Stop whining because your partners suck!


    This article is interesting but Julianne Hough needs to keep quiet about having an unfair advantage. She has the biggest advantage since she knew her partener before the show and was even teaching him to dance. So people in glass houses Julianne shouldn't throw stones. The problem for Julianne is that her unfair advantage isn't working since no one is buying this cute couple couple scam and people don't like her partner and he can't dance.
