SS: Throughout Vegas week and going into the season, the atmosphere between the dancers seems to be one of support and camaraderie. Does that surprise you?
NL: I am always shocked at that. That was starting to happen on Idol too, as much as Simon Cowell loves to put the dagger in and say, 'Look, get rid of this person, he can get rid of your competition.' There isn't that there. I mean you saw it between Adam [Lambert] and Kris [Allen]-there is a huge camaraderie that they're going on the same journey and they are all experiencing the same thing. I am sure that deep down, they want to win it, but not at the expense of everyone else.
