Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy dance the Samba on Dancing with the Stars

Was she fake singing? LOL Personally, I thought this was all over the place. You guys have influenced me with your dislike for Brandy!

Judging

Len Goodman: It had energy, it had punch. I didn’t quite get it.

Maksim was testy with Len! Omigosh.

I don't get the judges' dissing of Maks teaching style, it was about 12 seconds of about 5 and half days of rehearsal footage. And then didn't Brandy smack him on the bum in the dance, so it was made to be part of the story. Whatever, I don't really think she'll make it past top 5.

To me, she's flailly and not very likeable.

It is sad that people think Brandy is rude to Maks. Maks has said that Brandy and him get along so well together because they both are very passionate people. He said she is probably going to be his best friend after the show. They just make them look like an old married couple on the show bc the producers like the drama.

You're certainly not speaking for me Rickey when you talk about dislike for Brandy. That Samba was hot and danced very well. It deserved at least an 8. Your lack of objectivity is showing when you think Brandy and the Situation deserved the same score. Please go look at those dances again focusing only on the celebs. No way!
Can't wait to see Brandy & Maks Rumba next week.

hmmm. I agree with Rickey. The dress made it look worse, I see why they chose this dress though. Her arms are always everywhere, she needs to tone it down and just dance, and not be over the top. I would give them a 7.

Good but no chemistry. I don't feel them. But Maks can be something too -- you have to admit. He's so demanding!

Loved! Loved! Loved Brandy tonight. Their performance was entertaining and much more energetic than Jennifer and Derek's performance.
Brandy is not the softspoken teenager anymore she's a 31 yr old grown woman! I think she represents herself very well. She's showing that she's tough in the face of the negativity. Like she said... she's sensitive but not weak. Love it!!

You can't base your judgement or dislike on someone just because the viewers of your site doesn't like them. Very bias, in my opinion. She did a wonderful job, improved a great amount from last week. I see Brandy, Jennifer, Rick, and Audrina as the frontrunners.

Rose you are very wrong, they do have chemistry and they do not fight. Are you forgetting the way Maks was with Laila, Mel B, Erin,? He is the same with every celebrity he has. And Rickey you are wrong, this was not a mess, Brandy did amazing, she improved from last week. This was much better than Jennifer and Derek's samba, Brandy deserved a higher score.

I have to agree with Alynn, I just dont see chemistry between them, they fight, she's actually very rude to him, and lets face it, Maksim is not the most lovable person, so, not a good match. Maybe if she was paired with Tony this could be different.

This was the best dance of the night for me. Brandy has so much personality, and I don't think she carries herself in a bad way. I think she is a very honest lovely woman!

I use to idolize Brandy when I was younger. She was eloquent in a simple, and quiet manner. But now, I just don't like how she represents herself. I don't know what it is and it is reflective in her dancing.

Maks is my favorite male professional, so please take this comment with that in mind. I thought his costume (especially the - what was it - gun holster?) made HIS arms look kinda flail-y. Or maybe that was to compensate for Brandi, who as you mentioned has her arms all over the place.

I thought the dance was fun, but it did seem a little messy.

Rose

you should just respect everybody's opinion. Eventhough I didnt agree with the comment above me I never said it was wrong.

Much chemistry. U can tell they genuinely like each other. When they're not being shown in a negative light with the clips, the great relationship comes across. Her chemistry with him is different from someone who's trying to be in a romantic relationship with him. They're good together. Both strong people.

Hi Marc,

Are you Brandy's dad?
