Just checked out the website, online voting WILL be allowed and will stay open for quite a while after the show ends. Just got to get sorted now...............

Ok I have a theory that could possibly right about Shawn.

Ok well we now all know that she's doing "Dancing with the Stars", which is part of the problem(even though I want her to do it).

You know in many interviews about asking about 2009 season she kept saying idk idk idk, well I think this is the reason she will not participate in the 2009 season because on Shawn's new blog, it said that she was holding the secret for months.

Shawn next week will go and learn new dances steps and all this stuff, which means no gymnastics, and I'm pretty sure she hasn't been in a gym practicing gymnastics since Beijing.

I do think this could affect her gymnastics career.

But I support her decision.

I think it sets her back about a year or so for her career but she's still got the skills so I think she can still compete at an Olympic standard but whether she can win depends on how much training she does

At least we get to see her every week and hopefully online voting means I can vote Very Happy

Shawn is very competitive so maybe she sees this as an opportunity to not only improve her public image but to help her in 2012. One of the things I heard during the 08 Olympics was {insert snotty, better then you average wallow in the mud fans who wouldn't know anything about gymnastics if I wasn't here to spell it out for you, tone of voice} 'Shawn Johnson is powerful but lacked grace'. Maybe she feels that this show will give her skills that she can't get from Chow. I am sure when she goes back she wants every advantage she can get a sweep of the gold.

All of the commentators over here apart from Matt "what a routine!" Baker were all saying that she had power and Nastia had the grace, I was like Surprised they both have grace I'll have you know

I do seem to remember some ignorant commentator saying something along those lines...of course, with the scores being given out, they had to try to explain it somehow. stupid judges.Mad

I'd still much rather see Shawn competing in gymnastics than dancing on a reality show...hope she wins though Smile

Don't much care what she's doing, just so long as:
1. She's happy
2. It's what SHE wants to do
3. She gets paid for it or wins.......some sort of recompense

I just like seeing her TBH.

That is why I hate talking heads ... they always seem to be correcting their earlier statements. I also can't imagine Shawn doing somehting this big if she didn't want to, she seems to be very ummm strong will, shall we say. Very Happy I am pumped that she will be on TV and I know she will win, not that her large fan base would stuff the ballet box ... not us ... nope no way! Suspect Err Ok I might vote once or twice a hour Laughing

100% true, I know I'm going to vote just as much.

But I am still shaky about the decision, although I now have something to watch on Mondays, lol, I think this could hurt her gymnastics career.

She even said on Ellen, if you do not practice gymnastics everyday, you will lose some skill.

But like I said, I support her on DWTS.

Have you ever thought that maybe her gymnastics career is over? She got to the top at 15/16, and now maybe wants to do something else, something a little less time-consuming, that might allow her to lead a more "normal" life............you know, like eat a Krispy Kreme donut without feeling guilty? Very Happy

Whatever, she deserves it. Wink

Yeah, you can't blame her for re-evaluating things after Beijing because she got what she worked for - a gold medal and it'll be hard to go for other goals in 2012, except maybe a gold in the all-around

I think it is a little premature to say whether or not this will affect Shawn going to the Olympics in 2012. I mean I take her for her word that she says once everything calms down she is going to go back to the gym and make her decision then. For now she is just enjoying the ride. I think the only thing this affected was her decision to go back to school this year. Honestly the more Shawn on TV the better! Very Happy

However if there was a choice (and there is not) between her doing gymnastics or this show, I would much rather see her back doing gymnastics. But that is her choice and her decision alone.

i'm pretty sure she's said stuff in interviews about how Beijing was the best experience of her life and if she could recapture that feeling by going to london 2012 she would do whatever she could to get there. So i am guessing that for her the question is whether she would still be able to compete, not whether she wants to. I'd be kind of surprised to see her walk away now.

hope i'm not misquoting her too badly...

If anything it's going to get her back in shape, she's a little chubber now. In no way do I think this will affect her negatively in the future. White's got it right, she's just along for the ride now and as long as she's happy and excited so should we, don't you only want the best for her. But yes it would be good to see her back in the gym scene xD

I did read how the show has a lot of injuries. Since I have never watched i'm not sure how true that is. But I don't see Shawn being one of those. I'm sure it's celebs whose bodies aren't flexible where as Shawn is.

I've never seen it before.

But imo, I think she'll have the upper hand in the dancing routines because she's small and light which would make her easier to hold or cradle-catch, she can incorporate flips and springs into the dancing they so choose, and plus she's freaking Shawn Johnson! What more do you need?!

Plus I'm gonna get all my friends and family to vote for her as much as possible.
