I think Mario showed a lot of class on Dancing with the Stars. Len was a harsh judge and Mario kept his cool. I commend him for his mature attitude and professionalism!

Hi Vanessa from Trinidad here, I feel as though the judges of dancing with the stars were affraid of the new flavour that Mario brought to the show he has brought a new style and new energy that they weren't ready for. It's almost like they didn't know how to judge him.
Mario you were great its their lost, not yours they surely weren't ready for you.

Len was intentionally harsh, I believe. He comments were meant to sway the voters to vote Mario off. Jason, one of the least deserving semi-finalists, in my opinion, got a lot of praise from the beginning. This is because the show capitalizes on the NFL audience, which is undoubtedly large; De La Fuente is eye candy for the ladies; Marissa draws the vast middle & urban class whites who enjoy Broadway shows. It's show business - the judges are meant to vacillate voters towards the dancer drawing the largest audience.

That said, Mario should very swiftly look for and find a serious gig on a hit Primetime TV Show. I believe he is looking for longevity in the show business; Primetime TV shows, even sitcoms(as is the case with Will Smith), have never failed anyone.

sincerely I do not find that it will be plus a mere singer who arrived, made a success music and simply the people will forget it, in the truth the mario is a singer of much quality, that the people are only acustumadas see the mario to it to sing and ai had been sorpreendidos with enormous preformance of it in palco, that for signal was excellent, more unhappyly exists critical to the extremity more concerteza it will be victorious in whom to make either singing, dancing or acting.

I hope Mario has a good management team behind him, to capitalise on the exposure he's gained from DWTS. As he is one of the most talented R&B stars around, and needs to get the recognition he deserves.
