An Ode to Samantha Harris

Alternately titled: Samantha Harris Leaves Dancing with the Stars, Nation Mourns

Heartbreaking news this week - after eight seasons, Samantha Harris is leaving Dancing with the Stars to go do whatever it is people do after they have been on Dancing with the Stars. Which means we will no longer be treated to moments like this one:

To cope with my grief, I have composed this poem:

Ode to Samantha Harris

I will miss your fancy dresses
And your always perfect hair
I will miss your awkward interviews
And your eager wide-eyed stare

Who will take your coveted place
Now that you have gone away
Will it be cutie Melissa Rycroft
Or - God help us - Drew Lachey?

Tom Bergeron will likely miss you
As will Carrie Ann, Bruno, and Len
But out with the old and in with the new
I'm so ready for season ten.

Great ode Disney Chick! I would like to see Melissa Rycroft Strickland as Samantha's replacement. Melissa's perky personality and warm smile will be the perfect compliment to Tom and the show. Love Melissa and would totally enjoy watching her on DWTS every week!
