America's "Favorite?" Dancer
11 August 2008 | by mdleeSee all my reviews

This season, I am more disappointed than in previous years. With the choreographers out doing themselves as if they were in a secret competition of their own, and the dancers having more ability than ever before, I feel that Katee should have won. On the finale, did she not have more callbacks than the other three? Was not her work more consistent than the other three? As a former competitive ballroom dancer for almost 14 years, and having adjudicated hundreds of ballroom competitions, may I say that it is the job of the man to present his lady and basically show her off.

Except for lifts, the girl always does more work than the man. Joshua was excellent this season and if Katee could not win, then I am satisfied with Joshua as the favorite.

But....no one will ever convince me that she wasn't the best dancer in the final four. And, her humility and lack of "mugging" for the cameras during the phone numbers was refreshing to see.

Lastly, Katee paid for her training with money and the sweat of her body with practice after practice, Joshua and Twitch are virtually untrained. I think that Katee's desire to be a dancer, her commitment and dedication to this point in time, and the fact that she delivered a superior product EVERY time out the entire season....well...this time I think America got it wrong.

I hope that if there are any friends of Katee reading this forum, please let her know there is one viewer who voted for her (lots and lots) and will be looking forward to seeing her future successes in dance.

Sincerely, Morgan Lee
