'DWTS' Recap: Abby Lee Miller's Attitude Makes Unfair Elimination Even Worse

Mark Ballas & Candace Cameron Bure

Ugh. For the love of Pete, can we please cool it with the guest judges this season, ABC? Um, was Abby Lee Miller annoying as hell on Dancing With the Stars tonight, or was Abby Lee Miller ANNOYING AS HELL on DWTS tonight?

I know she was there to critique the performances, but she totally took things too far -- especially when she made fun of Meryl Davis' feet, for crying out loud! Thankfully Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy both seemed to be fairly effective at shutting her up -- but we still had to endure two hours of her being a major buzz kill.

I mean, some of the dances tonight were nothing short of extraordinary, and then she had to go and put a negative spin on everything, which really sucked.

But on a positive note, how amazing were Candace Cameron Bure and Charlie White during their duo performance? OMG. They should almost take them away from their respective partners and pair the two of them up from here on out. (Seriously. Their chemistry is insane.)

Ok, unfortunately I have to shift back to the negative. Ugh. I know someone had to go home tonight, but how bummed out are you to see Danica McKellar's journey end? She's come such a long way and is such a beautiful dancer. I would've bet money on her being in the finals for sure, so this week's elimination is a major disappointment. She didn't deserve to leave. (Not to mention now we won't have the pleasure of seeing the eye candy that is Val from here on out. Damn.)

And if I had to guess who will wind up battling it out in the end? At this point I'm thinking Amy Purdy, Meryl Davis, and Charlie White. But then again, anything is possible in this competition.

Are you sad to see Danica go? And what did you think of Abby Lee as a guest judge?

Abby Lee Miller was and is a disgrace. She was out of her element on DWTS and does not have the credentials or experience to judge the professional dancers or their partners. I have no respect for her as a person and as a teacher. Why is DWTS stooping so low? She had zero credibility and took the elegance and class out of last night's show. Ruined my favorite night of the week!

Okay really? Abby Lee Miller is a professional choreographer and has been choregraphing ever since she was about eleven years old, which is way longer than most can say. She has three TV shows, has multiple students on Broadway and her opinion is highly valued in the Dance world.. Say what you want but she was doing nothing but giving constructive criticism and gave all of the dancers compliments along with the critics, which all of them were spot on and if they fix the corrections it will help out the progressing dancers in the long run. So go ahead and be bitter about it but she wasn't by any means out of line.. Sorry she's not going to say "Oh my God, that was perfection don't change any thing!" when there were things that needed to be corrected and that is certainly NOT how things go down in the dance world. The entertainment business isn't easy and without critics from professionals that know what they are talking about half of the stars wouldn't even be stars. Clearly you have never danced a day in your life or you would know all of this and know that ALL of her corrections were spot on.. And she was nice while giving them! Grow up.

Having Abby on was a joke. Ever watch her show, the girls always do the same dance, and treats the girls very bad. If she is so good at what she does, why doesn't she get out there and teach her girls herself, because she can not dance. She took points off of Maks & Val because they called her out. Remember the boys have their own dance studios, teach dance, and are pro dancers. Sorry to see Val go last night, love both boys.

I liked Abby Miller on the show because she was real with criticisms. I know its Planet Mirrorball there with sugarplums and Bruno's sexual subtext comments. But we all know that the judging isn't consistent for technicality and more of fudge factor system. She was a breath of fresh air.

Ruined my favourite guilty pleasure. She is vulgar and rude.

Roberta Malone Shay

I am not a fan of the guest judge concept. I particularly did not like Abby Lee MIller. I thought she was rude & completely biased. I hope the DWTS Producers rethink this conecept before next season.

Juliette Alorda Thompson

I thought Abby was over the top trying to prove how rude and ugly she can be. Dancing With the Stars is better off without the likes of her.
