I think I've lost my voice.

Tonight's show? HOT. I out-writhed myself. (I tend to go into screaming convulsions on the floor whenever Benji shows up.)

I'm pretty worn out from all that excitement, so here's a list. Lists are fun!

2. Benji's Dimitry is like Feist's "Inside & Out". Way hotter than the original, and makes me wanna get up and shimmy my hips.

I could go on forever. The collection is updated. It's hot hot hot in Vietnam!

Have to admit, I love Benji and Donyelle. A seemingly unlikely couple, but both of whom have a good dose of humility, which makes the two of them easy to watch and enjoy. Benji's parents, Buddy & Laurie are dancers as well, and I can only imagine how proud they are of hm. And Donyelle... she's my hero. A girl who most people would overlook due to her size, but dances light as a feather with indescribable elegance. A memorable dancer.

And am I catching something? Is there a bit of sizzle between the two of them? An unmistakeable CRUSH and enthusiasm. If she could handle his Morminism, and he could handle her independence, I think they'd make a swell couple off the dance floor as well.

You could be right anonymous, I could see them looking good together off the dance floor as well, but don't let Glitter hear that:) Sounds like she is already making wedding plans, I'm curious how she intends on reeling Benji in

Glitter I have a new pet nickname for you "Bonkers for Benji"

On a side note thanks for looking into my previous question, I can use ever advantage possible as I'm not a good dancer just love watching it:)

I'm 32 and although us guys don't like to admit it openly when we hit 30 and am still single we to start to feel that clock ticking.

On a final note Bonkers, Benji or no Benji with your wit and humor you shouldn't have any trouble finding your prince charming.

Humour, Wit, Beauty are definetely high on a mans list, but there is one weapon you ladies have which is often overlooked.

Smile if you really like a guy even if he is shy and seems like he will never take the initive and work up enough nerve to come talk to you.

The more shy the guy, the more smiles you'll have to throw his way.
Read that in the book "How to make someone fall in Love with you" by Leil Lowndes awesome book wrote for both men and Women.

Read that book and apply it and guys like Benji will not stand a chance, although you'll still probably have to convert when it comes to him.hehe

That waltz was freaking fantorgasmic.

OMG, I thought that was so cute that Donyelle kept calling it the vietnamese waltz and then they did that fighting move. I laughed so hard at Benji trying to be Dmitry. Benji is so adorable.

Anon @ 3:12: They are beyond lovable as a couple! And to think that Donyelle was on the brink of quitting dancing! Either there's some serious sparks flying between those two, or they're very very smart and know how to feed the publicity flames. Either way, good on them!!

James: "Bonkers for Benji"! I love it, I need a t-shirt with that on. I can't dance worth crap either, but that just means I admire these dancers even more for their skill and versatility. And thank you so much for your kind words! Between the smiling and the raving and the smelling ridiculously good, how could Benji possibly resist? Watch out, Donyelle, here I come!! :)

Danceaholic: Wasn't it Gawr-geous? I seriously do feel a little hoarse today from the screaming. What the neighbours must think!

CowgirlWarrior: If they made a DVD set of Benjyelle's rehearsal footage, I'd buy one for every TV and computer I have access to! Those two are just way too much fun to watch.

love your blog and love love the fact that you are a benji/donnell fan too!!!!!!

Okay, so call me Poster #1 under this anonymous list.

I loved how the first time Donyelle and Benji danced together doing hip hop, he said, "I'm not supposed to touch someone like that until I'm married!" to which she replied, "I'm going to be touching you all over!" Seems the magic is starting to work, and I sincerely hope the two of them can work something out (if not a lifelong friendship) off screen as well.
After all, their affection for one another just becomes more clear each week. She's utterly vibrant when dancing with him, and he's stepped away from the 'cuteness' of his west coast swing and has found some additional cajones.

Hey, James... and everyone. I've taken ballroom dance courses and it's a blast. For the most part most people do NOT look like those pros, which is cool. Everyone starts with a left foot. But if you want to have a fun, develop some confidence about your body movements and carriage, AND meet some fun people of all ages (the man who made me swoon must've been 60 and was a damned fine salsa afficianado), then go take a few classes. You'll LOVE it!

And sorry Bonkers... I didn't mean to upset you. But I think you should take ballroom dance classes if you wanna reel in the guy who'll take you from two step to waltz!

Hey all!!! Benji and Donyelle are pretty much the funniest couple in the show!! They made me laugh so hard with their mispronounciation of the dance!! I love Benji's goofiness!! Anyways I love this line that Benji said "Donyelle's already in love with me, now she's going to fall head over heels for me in this dance" (have no idea if that was exactly right). You better watch out Glitterati I think someone's after your man!! Well see y'all later!!

I seriously freaked out last night when it was their turn to dance. I do this horrible shriek and clap thing whenever they are on screen. My boyfriend hates it, haha. And I started freaking out even more when Cat announced what song they were dancing to. Bryan Adams?? OMG I LOVE HIM! He is my favorite artist of all time and that song makes me swoon every time I hear it!!
Is it strange that I go into uncontrolable fits of giggles every time Benji and Donyelle are on the screen??

kat: Welcome, welcome! Thanks for visiting our cozy Benjyelle love-a-thon! :)

Poster #1: I took ONE hip hop dance class, and I loved it, after the pain in my muscles went away. I must be so out of shape... I hurt in places that I didn't know had muscles! But then I went and sprained my ankle... my new name should be Bonkers the Klutz! But yeah, it was totally fun, and a crazy workout.

And don't worry about upsetting me! This is a safe space for Benji-love... any fan of Benji gets sloppy drunken hugs from me!

Bookluver: If the dance thing doesn't work out (so, if the apocalypse comes...), they can always go on tour as a comedy duo! I know I'd pay big bucks to see them! :) And Donyelle is a worthy adversary!

Kat H: Oh GOD I can't believe I forgot to talk about that song!!! I LOVE that song so so so much. We must be magic internet twins, because I do the exact same shriek and clap everytime they're on stage. Roommate can attest to that. I get way WAY giddy!

qI thought I was the only person that shriek when Benji and Donyelle be on stage. They are super cute together that i'm even jealous! I really hope one of the two wins it because they are the best dancers/couple ;D

Anon@2:31: Oh, I think they can hear us in, like, Norway when Benji comes on stage! If the showings across the different time zones were synchronized, we'd probably broadcast out to space with all the squealing!! :)
