" results show, and though Michael Jackson's passing prevented us from interviewing the judges after the cuts, we thought you might like to talk about their decisions anyway…

Regarding Jonathan, we get it. Though he and Karla just killed that kick-a$$ Stacey Tookey routine last week — that will go down as one of our favorite dances of the season, no doubt — he was seriously lacking any sort of street cred during the Dave Scott hip hop number that he and Karla performed on Wednesday. It felt like he was dragging Karla down, because her performance was actually pretty solid in our opinion.

Don't get us wrong, Jonathan is adorable and has definite talent — really dig those flips and tumbles he does — but he could probably use quite a bit more professional training. You may or may not already know that the kid only began dancing five short years ago…

As for Asuka, her dismissal was a surprise to us. She seemed like a judges' favorite from day one. Nigel Lythgoe said the decision to let her go was based on the fact that she wasn't growing from week to week, but we feel like that was just a colorful way of saying, well, we have to send someone home and this is the only thing we could come up with.

Thoughts?
