Compulsory dance

No spoilers, but they're likely to crop up in comments.

I'm always happy when the compulsory dance is a Latin. Always seems to run a lower risk of cheesy and/or corny. The lady's costume might look a little risqué (there are times when I think a worldwide shortage of nude illusion Lycra would be a good thing), but nothing like what they're wearing in actual dancesport these days. O_o

Y HALO THAR TANITH BELBIN GIRLCRUSH. *melt*

I must root for Belbin and Agosto because we had the same doctor before they moved away from Michigan. Also because, well, wow.

Wow indeed. Though your first reason is also a perfectly good one. :-)

SPOILER ALERT
Strangely lacking in passion, our Tanith and Ben. Technically excellent, but no tingle.

1. Wow, they're actually showing the compulsories? Now I kind of wish I had a TV.

2. (there are times when I think a worldwide shortage of nude illusion Lycra would be a good thing)

AMEN. (Although, yes they are more tame than dancesport. Which makes me sad, sad, sad.)

I could do without the gigantic tacky graphic of Tanith and Ben covering a quarter of the screen every few minutes, but that's clearly why we're getting the compulsory at all, so I'll sigh and put up with it. Heaven knows they're getting plenty wrong, between shafting the West Coast and locking down the streaming videos on their website.

I don't follow dancesport, just watch random competitions if I run across them or the TiVo decides I should have them. The several-year gap between any two of those occasions has made the... evolution of costuming really glaring. Sheesh.

I'm hoping that the Ladies competition is not as overrun with nude illusion Lycra as the Pairs was.
