'DWTS' Pro Val Chmerkovskiy Defends Kelly Monaco & Confirms What We've All Been Thinking

OMG 42

kelly monaco val chmerkovskiyWhew! Were you relieved to hear that Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy made it to next week's Dancing With the Stars finals? I sure was. I just love those two, because something about their insane chemistry makes me believe that soul mates really do exist, or some mumbo jumbo like that.

But even though they've given some pretty stellar performances, the judges have been especially hard on them, and much more so than other contestants this season. It's almost as if they have some sort of bias against the couple -- and it's obvious that Val is more than a little irritated about their scores.

After Kelly and Val received less than perfect scores for their Surfer Flamenco performance (you know, the one where Val dropped his pants and paraded around in a Speedo), host Brooke Burke Charvet asked them what they thought about their scores, to which Val replied, "I think that’s pretty politically correct. I think that’s pretty unfair, but that’s just my opinion."

And he's not the only one who's pissed, because his brother Maksim Chmerkovskiy is calling bullsh*% on the judges' scoring as well.

Maks took to his Twitter account to rant and rave about the low scores, saying, "WTH ARE THOSE SCORES!?!?!?!? I’m almost sorry that Val’s last name is #Chmerkovskiy!" He followed that one up with, "The hardest thing about being on this show is explaining to a crying grandma why @iamValC and @kellymonaco1 get bad scores ..."

(Aww! Poor grandma!)

But seriously -- don't you agree that the judges have been a heck of a lot tougher on Kelly and Val than they've been on most of the other couples on the show? (C'mon, everyone has noticed it.) It's almost like they have it in for them or something -- which only adds to the speculation that the entire show is fixed.

It's hard not to wonder if Val and Kelly were purposely given lower scores for one specific reason -- because the judges know they have a HUGE fan following because of the rumored romance between them. I'm telling you -- people just can't resist tuning in each week to see if they're going to wrap up their performance with a full-on make-out session, or possibly conceive a baby right there on the ballroom floor. Their love connection has definitely factored in this season, and the judges know that -- they aren't stupid.

But regardless of their motives, hopefully they'll cut Kelly and Val some slack in next week's finals. They deserve to be there, and they earned their spot, fair and square.

Do you think the judges are biased against Kelly and Val?

I absolutely believe that Kelly and Val's scores were appropriate.

R u kidding look back at their dancing, really look, they r not that good, especially in the water very sloppy. And Kelly has a chip on her shoulder,does she ever smile, she is arrogant and acts like she's doing us a favor letting us watch her dance which is not the case. Looks like a snob, may not be in real life, but she sure comes off as one. Yuk does no one else see this, get over yourself you are not one of the 3 best dancers. Should not be in the finals

No way does Kelly Monaco deserve to be in the finals. The judges have been pretty generous with their scores when comes to Kelly. I think the show is rigged and ABC has fixed for Kelly to win.

Kelly should have gone 2 weeks ago..no way she out dances Apollo.

Should never have made the final!! Her dancing no way matched that of Apolo or Emmitt. She won the first time because of her affilliation with ABC. If she wins again, it will be for the same reason. And I agree with others, does she ever smile?? Not sure why or how she made it this far. Final should have been Shawn, Melissa, and Apolo.

Kelly and Val absolutely deserves to be in the finals, and this article just confirmed for me everything that I have been feeling and thinking. The judges have been extremely hard on them compared to the other couples.

Regardless of that, she's a good dancer. I think the "showmance" may have overshadowed that fact. She may not be a natural dancer or naturally rhythmic but she's good, and I enjoy watching her and Val dance.

Jesus, @Marty Dunn! Go find a first-grader to help you spell, PLEASE! Anyway, Kelly is not stuck up. Just because most Americans are obnoxiously smiley doesn't mean it's abnormal not to be. She is always very gracious about the scores. She has learned and improved the most and, unlike Melissa who has decades of dance experience, and Shawn, who is a mechanical, albeit talented, little robot, Kelly is actually what the show is about. Hope she and Val win!

I shrew that Kelly attitude stinks and she feels she is better then anyone. Her body language tells all. The two that got booted would be a toss up, but Kelly should have gone

If you compare Kelly's routines to Melissa's and Shawn's routines, she is clearly out of their league. She doesn't deserve to be in the finals.
