Bruno's comments about Michael Bolton

Report
I'm a huge fan...well, I have been. I understand that ratings on other shows like this have soared due to comments made by judges...however...The judges should be critical of the dance not make comments like Bruno did tonight. True, Michael didn't look great but it isn't like he pissed around all week and then showed up and expected to hear good things. These guys work their butts off. I don't expect them to say they look good when they don't but keep the nastiness out of it. (They don't have any problem expressing their excitement over hot women even when they don't dance so well). Part of what makes this show a favorite is it is fun, happy, exciting and you see people working so hard to achieve something. A 3??? A five is pretty tough, a 3 makes you a big man with a paddle. Keep the show positive. It makes the audience feel good when it is over. Keep dancing Michael!

Bruno was completely out of line...it was my first time tuning in this season...his negativity was enough to keep me away. I really wish the producers would have the gumption to say this to the judges...remember when Bruno and Cari Ann had the contest of producing a team of dancers against each other? They were much more concerned about the contestants feeling....pitch this Michael and Billy Cyrus, and everyone one more that they have been rude to should return as judges and let them compete again...this time all 3 judges...they need to experience having the shoe on the other foot and then decide if they are constructive or not.

I am so angry tonight (Michael Bolton out?)not acceptable! I've watched the show/with breakdown sheets since day 1 - and may not watch again.You don't dance properly to type of dance and music. You ask older people to dance and eliminate them one by one, or set them up by judges scores to fail. Bruno was disrespectful and went well beyond the what is socially acceptable. Older stars will refuse to enter if they feel that they will be disrespected and Bruno's over the top remarks and score was the end for me. I'm over 70 and not your demographic, but, if your interested, you have lost me as a fan. Bruno should be reprimanded publicly and suspended from participating as a judge for a period of time. I'm watching NCIS LA in the future on elimination night. A 1 hour show with only 15 minutes of actual eliminations. Your programing skills leave me cold.

these contestants for the most part aren't dancers and for bruno to go off on Michael B like that was insulting.Let bruno try and sing and let Michael judge him. I lost a lot of respect for Bruno and a little for the show!

I for one am not going to watch DWTS ever again. The judges on there are not respectful. Poor Michael...he didn't have to be made a fool of on national TV...no one deserves that kind of hate speech.

I think the producers of the show should make these so called judges dance and let’s see how they do. I know len goodman can dance but let’s see what that idiot Bruno can do. After all these judges are now celebs. Yes Mr. Bolton wasn’t great but to be intentionally cruel wasn’t called for. Mr. Bolton should have told him to kiss his ass.

I was appalled by Bruno's comment to Michael Bolton. How embarrassing for Michael! It disgusts me no end that this show was suppose to be for stars who were not dancers, or had little experience with dance, yet, unless you have had extensive dance experience, the judges rip you a new one! Why is it that Jennifer Gray is on this show? Of course she is good, Derek always seems to get the great dancers and goes on to win! I like Jennifer Gray, but come on! She was in Dirty Dancing and was nearly a professional then! I would like to know if DWTS has changed? Is it any star that accepts the challenge, even those who had extensive training like Jennifer Gray in Dirty Dancing? I feel for the stars with the nasty comments the judges make to those who aren't dancers! The judges need to lighten up and realize that at least some of these stars are working hard to improve and had no prior training!
