    it was awesome, it made me cry!!!



  5. 5

    Terrible - for professionals the standard was very poor.

    it was a nice tribute. I thought it showed us how talented Swayze actually was, since the dancers just looked like they were trying so hard to copy his style. I found a tear streaming down my face at the very end, not from their performance, but from losing such a great person who shaped many wonderful memories of my life.

    Loved It!!

    Nobody puts baby in the corner!!!!!!

    beautiful, it made me tear up a little!

    Only the guy at the end came close to being as good as Patrick Swayze was. You just can't fake his charisma. In the end, no one can do it better. There was just something about him that I adored. He was sexy, talented, a true Texas boy and devoted to his wife. They don't make them like that anymore.

    Thank God Macy Grey was voted off. She looked like a Silverback in drag.

    You know you are really successful when you have a career in Hollywood and when you pass away, everyone and I mean everyone talks about what a gentleman you are and what a class act. He must have been something really special. His wife was sure lucky. The dancing was great but I wish they would have used the version of him singing "She's Like the Wind". Rest in peace Patrick.

    Nice. . . . . .

    I know the show pays less money for songs by getting the rights to do their own cheaper version with their singers…but for a tribute to swayze…and considering it is the one and only hit song he had….shes like the wind…could they not have his actual song and singing for the dance?
    that would be a tribute….this…?….was just using him.



  16. 16

    they should have been smoking while dancing. More realistic



  17. 17

    aww.. loved it… love DWTS and love Patrick Swayze!



  18. 18

    Touching? Were we watching the same thing??? If I were Patrick I would be insulted because that dance was shitty and disappointing!!! Patrick loved art of dance these idiots are just dancing to look good on TV and get a check.



  19. 19

    I don't know the male dancer's name, but I could see he couldn't pick Cheryl up as high as Patrick did with Jennifer….LMAO Overall a good performance. RIP Patrick Swayze. You were so loved.



  20. 20

    Re: Amber! – YOU ARE SO RIGHT. They don't make men like him anymore!!!!! I must say that the dancers could have done better…. Jennifer Gray didn't have much training and she did the lifts FAR better..



  21. 21

    Tear's are streaming down.. I am so sad that he lost his battle.. I was really hoping he pull thru.. This was a nice tribute to him and what he has done for the Art of Dance.. No one can replace him he was VERY talanted.. If i see Dirty Dancing on TV I stop and watch it everytime.. I love "NO ONE PUT's BABY in the CORNER"… NO ONE PUT's Patrick in the CORNER….SWAYZE FOREVER

    Re: Danii – first what?



  23. 23

    Yea they sucked, but the fact that they thought enough of Patrick to do this was nice.



  24. 24

    Re: Brainbug

    Classic.

    And the one guy almost dropped Cheryl Burke both times. They both looked terrible compared to Jennifer Grey and Swayze!!



  25. 25

    Hollywood will miss a real classy, good-hearted, talented guy. We love you Patrick…..



  26. 26

    I LOVED IT! IT MADE ME CRY. HE WAS AN AWESOME DANCER.



  27. 27

    that was very sweet



  28. 28

    Amazing! Brought back memories! And of course they are not as good as the real thing, no one ever will be, because they are not the famous couple with their personalities! It was a very sweet tribute!



  29. 29

    I cried!



  30. 30

    not the greatest performance.
    just so blah.
    i could have done all that myself.



  31. 31

    awww, made me freakin cry…dammit. Patrick was such a gentle soul.



  32. 32

    I thought they did a good job, but obviously they're no replacement for Patrick…Nobody said they were, it was a tribute people!! It definitely made me cry a little! RIP Patrick!



  33. 33

    Re: Texas Mom – well said



  34. 34

    VERY VERY TOUCHING MADE ME TEAR NO LIE. MAY HE REST IN PEACE. GOD BLESS.



  35. 35

    Not bad, the idea was touching. I think they should have actually played Patricks version of "She's Like the Wind"..those singers were TERRIBLE! Especially when they sang "Time of my Life"…I cringed! They should not have had Cheryl Burke doing "Babys" part, #1 - she's too heavy for the guy to lift (both with the twirling and the lift at the end) and #2 - she's a terrible "actor" trying to be identical to the movie. They should have had Karina and Maxim do it, at least they were a real life couple and Karina is WAY smaller than that pig Cheryl. Dancing was a C, music was a huge F. Should have played the original tracks.



  36. 36

    Why do people write "first"…NO ONE GIVES A SHIT. Get a life loser. Comment on the story at hand.



  37. 37

    Very touching! He was so talented.



  38. 38

    what a shitty job!!



  39. 39

    Hard to hold back tears. I remember being obsessed with this scene from the movie when I was a little girl.



  40. 40

    This was a perfect tribute! I had goosebumps on my arms, tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat! I still can't believe that he's gone. I think that the dancers did a fantastic job!



  41. 41

    Professional dancers should be able to do an angel lift without problem. She wasn't even over his head. She's too heavy for him, he's too weak, or she doesn't know how to support herself correctly in lifts. Either way, get to the gym people if you are going to call yourself professional dancers. My dance partner and I from Highschool could have done better. That's pretty pathetic cause I don't consider myself an uhmazing dancer. Patrick was uhmazing…this was just an amateur performance.



  42. 42

    WOW!
    the 'time of your life' is one of THE BEST DANCE SEQUENCES IN MOVIE HISTORY!!!
    it makes me smile everytime. every single time. :-)
    it's up there with…
    'your the one that i want' from 'grease',
    'america' from 'west side story', and
    'what a feeling' from flashdance!
    :-)



  43. 43

    i didnt really care for how they did the songs or how they danced and i totaly agree with long dong connery. you cant beat the original. rip swayze .love you forever



  44. 44

    While the intent was lovely….anyone who grew up watching Dirty Dancing would have something to say.
    Sorry but it was piss poor for pros! I suggest looking at the DWTS and the original available on youtube side by side and then comment.
    It was offensive to people that knew this movie back to front and all the dance moves growing up….pro or not, the passion was not there in the least and it was painful to watch.

    LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!

    R.I.P Patrick Swayze!!!



  47. 47

    I loved it! Well done ladies and gents :)

    They didit better on Strictly Come Dancing. Kenny Logan did the real lift, and he was one of the celebrities, not a fully trained dancer.

    To be honest, that 'tribute' on DWTS wasn't much of a tribute, more like dancing on his grave
