Bristol Palin makes the finale of "Dancing with the Stars." That's my fearless prediction on this, the 16th of November, 2010.
More predictions: Jennifer Grey (likely) wins because the judges want her to win. Brandy goes tonight. I t hink.
But Kyle and Lacey could win the 11th - and may still.
Let's talk about Bristol, quickly. I thought she was quite good last night - or good enough to score reasonably high marks. She'll never get tens, but with the combination of decent scores and overwhelming votes, she's been pushed along until - absurbly, improbably - she's in the hunt with three very good and superior talents. But she likely can't win because the three judges' score trump total viewer scores at the very end of this game - even if BP gets a hundred million votes.
But Kyle Massey could prevail, and here's why: He adds the element of personality to the competition. He is fun to watch, always. He has contageous good humor. He's progressed more rapidly, more convincingly, than anyone. He's not a whiner. (The others aren't either actually, but they've had their moments.) He's a very good dancer. He's the everyman. He's the person we/you/me can most easily identify with.
He is, simply, the most likeable.
In fact, he's more likeabale than any contestant that I can remember.
But I have a bad memory. So don't rely on me.
Even so, Kyle/Lacey has my vote.
I hope he wins.
He deserves this.
