“At the beginning of Kelly and Val’s rumba, the dance floor looked like Planet Mirrorballus from that aerial shot. You could even see the glitter that composes Mirrorballus’ atmosphere.” —Wiltasaurus, endorsed by Colleen

“I nominate an MVG – Val and Kelly danced inside a flaming mirrorball!” —Rachael

“Round floor fixture looks like one of those orange slice candies.” —DonnaW

“Once when the camera was focused on the floor from above, the circular orange light looked just like a pumpkin pie!  How nice to wish us a Happy Thanksgiving….” —Tay

“One of the troupe ladies’ costumes flew up and covered her entire face (and head?) for quite a few seconds. She couldn’t exactly stop and pull it away – it was very awkward (and funny of course). ” —Iris

“It gave her the air of a scantily clad Arabian princess who owns every MJ record ever.” —Mee Dee

BG Productions

“There was a man peeking out between Tom and Brooke after the troupe dance, and they all seemed to morph into a three headed host.” —kfran

Right after the troupe’s opening dance, when Tom was talking, the woman next to him was staring through the camera into my soul. And no, not BBC, the other one.” —DocRules

BG Productions

“The hat left by the troupe on the ballroom floor looked so lonely as it was passed by the couples during the intro, almost wistful.” —kfran, endorsed by Anthony, GlitterGal

“Was Tony wearing pink legwarmers?  Perhaps an homage to Edyta?” —DarkLordofDance, endorsed by Colleen, BV

“Animated T-Rex looked like it was hacking up a hairball.” —Electronic_Neko, endorsed by Fridgedancer, duranmom, BV, Rifag

“Honest to God, that CGI dinosaur was legitimately amazing, even if cheesy. Kudos to the special effects department for reanimating an extinct creature to appear on Mirrorballus. Or is it that dinosaurs never did die there?” —Wiltasaurus

“Obviously the most valuable gem this week is that they’re actually playing Michael’s songs and not murdering them!! (The dinosaur had been waiting around, just in case…)” —Cindy
