Season 11 of “Dancing With The Stars” will probably go down in the history books as the most controversial season, yet. The reason why it has been so controversial is because it has been a season of mistakes. Let’s take a look at a few of these mistakes.
1. Inviting Bristol Palin to be a dancer. First, of all she isn’t a star. Her mother is a star. Yes, she is a star by association and a relative of a star. But the only real fame she has had is from being in the tabloids and the only reason she was in the tabloids was because of her mother. If it wasn’t for her mother, would anyone care that she got pregnant while she was a teenager?
2.Allowing the cameras to continue to zoom in on Sarah Palin whenever she was in the audience to watch her daughter dance. She shouldn’t have gotten special treatment. She shouldn’t have gotten any more attention than Kyle’s mother.
3.Asking Sarah Palin’s opinion on the dancing, etc. Again, she shouldn’t have gotten special treatment.
4.Allowing the dance number to go on where Michael Bolten dressed up as a dog. This dance number really sealed his fate.
5.Bruno should have apologized to Michael Bolten. No, he wasn’t a great dancer. But he did try. For that reason alone, he should have been treated with more respect.
6.Allowing Brandy to be voted off and Bristol to be allowed to dance in the finales. If the voting wasn’t rigged, they might have been better off rigging the results in Brandy’s favor. It would have given the show more creditability and may have caused less anger.
Will the mistakes cause viewers to boycott the finales? Many have vowed they would npot watch since Bristol is going into the finales in place of Brandy.
Will the mistakes cause “Dancing With The Stars” to lose their first place ranking?
Will the mistakes make it harder to get other stars to agree to perform next season?
Only time will tell.
