“Everyone was extra jaunty tonight on those last notes of the theme music tonight - at the intro at the beginning Derek did a big kick straight out of Shawn’s chest, Tony did a Midnight Train to Georgia ‘woo woo’ fist pump, and Val did a kick move that almost made him tip over!” –Jem H, endorsed by Wiltasaurus
“HG Nom: Whatever is holding up BBC’s dress.” –SunBlitz42, endorsed by Hattiedog05, gemtastic15

“It looks like an upside-down horse collar!” –tango2
“I don’t know what was up with Brooke’s dress, but I’m thinking perhaps she was sporting around her neck the trophy from the newest upcoming show “Horseshoes With the Stars”. It’s a ringer!” –Jem H
“I think it’s made from a shower curtain and leftover mirrorball shards.” –DonnaW
“So Planet Mirrorballus moths eat beading and sequins? Make sense.” –Electronic_Neko
