Even before the season started I picked Kim as the most likely to win. She’s a chicken salad out of chicken sh-t type and as Abdi Farah noted, that’s the mark of a true artist.

And she made it to #2 on DWTS Season 5 with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, so it’s not like he hasn’t danced with alleged “pros” before.) It drives me crazy.
As if The Pussycat Dolls are the Solid Gold Dancers instead of a new version of The Spice Girls. Because not only are the Pussycat Dolls not exactly out there practicing the Foxtrot or Viennese Waltz on stage, focusing all the “advanced dancer” hate on Nicole ignores the real issue: OLYMPIANS ALWAYS WIN.
Even his partner said he can come off as “cold.” And the Dance Center guys mocked him last week by falling asleep.
The judges went nuts over his vampire Paso Doble, but if you actually looked at his face in the dance, he kept defaulting to his blank expression. If she has any extra edge at all it’s that she’s dancing with Derek Hough, the best dancer and choreographer in the competition. *** For a stupid amount of stuff about DWTS — from recaps to top 10 lists and costume hits and misses — visit
(I picked Russell Hantz before “Samoa” started and Jane Bright before “Nicaragua.”) So, whatever else happens, Kim will hopefully win at least It’s been a long time since I added anything to my Things That Are Obvious file, but now seems like the time. Not that I even understand at this point what winning would mean. I thought he should’ve won the first challenge of season 1 and even though the judges have given him crap in the past two weeks I believe the criticism was only because they actually see some talent in this kid as opposed to “characters” looking for more “look at me! (*cough*Miles*cough*) So the August 11 finale is down to Abdi, his buddy Miles and … At 22, Abdi is the youngest of the three (Miles is 23 and Peregrine is 32) and he also has a great positive attitude and he seems to love zesty mentor Simon de Pury as much as I do. That’s usually how it works — the first season is the intro and things come to life after season 2. He definitely has a bright future and I hope it starts with $100,000, a solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum and the title of “The Next Great Artist.” *Update*: Yep, Abdi won!
The “Love in the Wild” Season 1 finale is airing tonight from 10 to 11 p.m. I’m sure they’ve mentioned — oh yeah, there’s a trip around the world or something. ‘Work of Art’ finale recap: Abdi is the ‘Next Great Artist’! It’s time for “American Idol” to pull a Brad Womack from “The Bachelor” and choose no one. Actually, it’s the judges, who screwed season 9 back when they chose a lousy top 24 and things just went downhill from there, especially after America dumped Alex Lambert (still love you, Mullet Boy! HOLLYWOOD – APRIL 30: attends Fox’s “24” Series Finale Party held at Boulevard 3 on April 30, 2010 in Hollywood, California.
Here’s why I love Kim: She diffused that bomb masterfully. Big power players rarely get rewarded as often as whoever sits next to them.
Smartly nervous Jay was about to tell Mike that his name came up, but Kim cut him right off and volunteered Christina as the one to go next. So will Chelsea or Sabrina — Kim’s main allies — end up winning over her?
Because if there’s anyone out there who has no song and dance experience, it’s Mr. They got Chinatown, which would’ve been my first choice.
Amy Sarabi chose Jonathan Peters and they got the Upper East Side.
Mya was penalized last season for being too good too soon, thereby not seeming to live up to the spirit of the competition (humiliating someone in front of millions until they are either voted off or get good enough to sob and win). On episode nine, “Takin’ It To The Streets,” the eight remaining designers had to pair up to design day and evening looks based on four New York neighborhoods.
