Hi Michael,

I don't know if I've signed up correctly on your site or am posting in the right place on your site - but wanted to tell you how much I've always enjoyed your music (I own quite a lot of your recordings) but I so much enjoyed watching you on Dancing With the Stars.  I think you did a fabulous job stepping outside the comfort zone of your (extra)ordinary life and you were so dedicated to working hard and working with Chelsea to help her too.

I'll miss seeing you on the rest of this this season :-)

Bruno was an ape, and you are a perfect gentleman.

I agree 100%..I am so proud of you Michael!!
Many other people agree with his (MB) gentleman class act behavior, good for you Michael.
I was so apalled at Bruno's harshness towards your dance. For a person who has never done that type of dancing, and to learn those dances in such a short time span is so difficult for most non-dancers. You could have taken revenge towards Bruno, but you were awesome as a gentleman!! I must say that I have absolutely LOVED your music for years!!! I hope that you return to DWTS and show them the real Michael....the singer!!! I thought you danced well, and I believe you would have continued to improve each week, if given the chance! Some of us really love the real you....the gentleman, Michael!! Anita
almost 24 hours have passed and I'd like to have my say on this whole DWTS thing before moving on with Michael to another part, hopefully a more rewarding one, of his great journey as an artist. When I heard that he was eliminated I first felt sorry for him, but also sad, and angry. Almost as if someone of my close family had been unfairly hurt or humiliated. I was sad and angry not so much because Michael got these comments by this no one Italian guy, but because he had worked hard, been authentic and honest towards himself and the show by working his butt off, by trusting his partner, by doing the choreography he was told to do, and came out as some kind of fool instead of getting a positive reward from all his effort and sincerety... But Reality TV is not about true, genuine persons like him : it's about calculated moves and words.... So my first reaction was : Michael should have never gotten into this... It was a bad career move and he's lost a lot and gained nothing going in there... Then I started to take things with more detachment, and I changed my mind : MB has gained a lot through this nightmare of a routine, because he showed to America what a true gentleman and professional he is. And judging by reactions of his fellw castmates and pro dancers, and viewers, the majority understood this and stands for him. Let's face it : sooner or later, MB would have been quietly eliminated of this show, without much publicity. But "thanks" to Bruno's nasty attitude, Michael became the "event" of the show and he got compassion from many, and showed what a great person he is. This show is also about publicity, and I guess if Michael agreed to do it, it was also to have a new occasion on being "spotlighted" on national TV and remind everybody who he is and why he's a really great artist and person. Publicity, bad or good, is publicity, and not everyone gets humiliated like he was before 20 million people, especilally when you are a Musical Legend in your own field. But not everybody also gets the occasion to react as cleverly as he did in front of 20 million people. Michael took this seriously, he worked hard, and people are no idiots : they saw and felt it, even if his dance was not the best. It was not the worst either, as many faithful viewers of this show have said.... So in the end, even with this tough moment for him, going there was a good career move I think, even if he I felt bad to see him sad and disappointed on national Tv in front of millions of people. I hope Michael takes full advantage of this in weeks to come, doing TV shows and press about this whole thing. As for me, a fan of his since I was 15, I'm more than happy to have given so much of my respect, admiration (and money !) to a man who is not only an amazing talent, but also a real man, a true person. We are used to ee Michael in full force when he sings. That's his game, he dominates it. Here, we got to see a more vulnerable side of him, and there's nothing wrong with that. Je's not made of steel like his song said, and I like him all the more for that. Now I'm hoping for just one last thing : that Michael gets invited to sing on DWTS, the day his new Christmas album comes out. That Chelsie and Mark Ballas will dance on his song. And that Michael will hit some of these incredible notes right in Bruno's face to show him what REAL talent is all about !
Ditto fellow fans...

Bruno's crude outburst is an example of the weakness and unacceptable behavior plaguing our society.
On the other hand, Michael's composure and dignity throughout this entire ordeal is as example of shining strength and genuine greatness that prevails.

Michael's mother has done a superb job of parenting! She must be an amazing lady to have raised such an outstanding gentleman. Chivalry is not dead!

My heart goes out to Michael for having to be subjected to everything he is against. How unfortunate that Bruno's deep-seated emotional issues had to come to full bloom on Michael. How fortunate we all witnessed a true life hero in action, standing tall, proud and forthright in defense.

I truly believe ABC and DWTS need to set the record straight - I say BYE-BYE BULLY BRUNO and BRING BACK BOLTON!
I agree, you are a class act. I love you Michael as an artist for so many years; several times attended your appearances here in Northern CA. Also a friend of Nelson Braxton and so thrilled when you added him on bass. I was so disappointed when I saw your jive, it really did fall below other dancers. I was close to crying. You know our talents don't always match everything we try. Nothing you did on Dancing with the Stars diminishes your light in any way! Can't wait to see you again.
