As long as Jack Osbourne doesn’t pull a miracle out of his ass, I’ll be fine with either Corbin Bleu or Amber Riley winning. I just wish the latter was paired up with someone else than Derek Hough. Does he really need another win under his belt. With that being said, I don’t think Amber would’ve done nearly as well without Derek’s insane choreography. He’s definitely the most talented out of the pros.
The show kicked off as the season began, with that wicked group number choreographed by Mandy Moore. After that, each of the stars danced an encore. My personal favorite retreads were Bill Nye’s “Weird Science” and Snooki’s “Work, Bitch.” The latter introduced a whackload of new dance moves. Lady Antebellum, Colbie Caillat, Enrique Iglesias and Swedish duo Ylvis all dropped by for the two-hour extravaganza. Being the cheesefest that DWTS is, everyone got into “The Fox” spirit and donned their faux animal ears. Can we put this novelty single to pasture to keep “Gangnam Style” company?
It’s also worth nothing that viewers picked Amber and Derek’s freestyle as the encore. Is that foreshadowing the winner or simply a red herring? I think the former, but anything can Ellie Goulding happen.
I don’t normally recap Dancing With The Stars, but since I’m enjoying this season so much, I thought I’d give it a try. There’s so many people I’m rooting for. Also, the fact the show airs only once a week now instead of two episodes, makes it much more manageable. I love that the performances and eliminations take place all in one jam-packed night. Much less unnecessary filler. However, the producers still manage to draw out the eliminations with their dramatic lighting and music.
The only thing I don’t like about the new format is the glitter pit replacing the celeb aquarium where the stars watched all the action from above. Also, was it necessary to move the judges to the other side of the dance floor? I digress. Check out week two’s performances below and find out who earned the unwanted distinction of being the first boot.
Turns out the rumors were true. Everyone on TMZ’s list is part of Dancing With The Stars Season 17 with a few extra additions. As I had hoped, some male eye candy was added. It comes in the form of Pretty Little Liars actor Brant Daugherty and High School Musical‘s Corbin Bleu.
Speaking of eye candy, my favorite Russian pro dancer Gleb Savchenko isn’t dancing with anyone this year. Former SYTYCD dancer Lindsay Arnold is also missing, along with longtime staple Kym Johnson. Stepping in to replace their shoes are Tyne Stecklein, Emma Slater and Sasha Farber. The latter two were both part of the Dance Troupe for several seasons. Congrats on the promotion.
This year, DWTS is only airing once a week which means both the eliminations and performances will take place on the same night. For those who looked forward to the musical guests, don’t worry. They’ll still appear, but only later in the season when the cast has been whittled away. Without further ado, check out the DWTS Season 17 cast below which was revealed earlier today on Good Morning America.
After watching the season premiere of Dancing With The Stars, I feel content with the predictions I made prior to the first telecast. Most of the celebrities performed as I thought they would with a couple notable exceptions. Both Andy Dick and Wynonna Judd impressed and entertained with their debut performances. That said, I still think they’re going to be eliminated within the first five weeks.
The stars had to dance either a cha cha cha, a foxtrot or a contemporary on the first night. With no results show until Tuesday, March 26, all of them get a second chance to impress viewers next Monday. Check out all the performances below and find out which ones were my three favorites and worst pick.
After going with an All-Stars edition, Dancing With The Stars is going back to basics for Season 16. While I enjoyed seeing returning favorites, I’m looking forward to tonight’s season premiere. While the star wattage isn’t as high as in previous seasons, I already have a few people I’m rooting for. Lisa Vanderpump, I’m talking about you.
Getting a first look at the “celebrities” with their professional partners is always exciting to watch. While I do enjoy witnessing the trainwrecks, I’m more stoked to see who comes bursting out of the gates gunning for the mirrorball trophy. Check out my predictions on how Season 16′s stars will fare.
Without a doubt, Andy Dick will be one of the first to go. I just can’t see the 47-year-old comedian having any sort of rhythm. Former ABC sitcom star DL Hughley might have some dancing prowess, but don’t think he has the fan base to support him. Speaking of fans, everyone knows that country music has diehard ones. Normally I would put Wynonna Judd higher, but with Kellie Pickler also in the competition, I think Judd will suffer and be ousted early.
Also in this bunch is my favorite Lisa Vanderpump. While popular with Housewives addicts (myself included), she probably isn’t well known outside the Bravo universe. Hopefully her signature wit and sass will win over new fans quickly. Last in this list is boxer Victor Ortiz. I’m sure when it comes to demographics, there isn’t much crossover between DWTS and boxing watchers. His chances aren’t helped by being saddled with new professional, Lindsay Arnold either. I thoroughly believe, viewers also vote for their favorite pros.
My favorite part of every Dancing With The Stars season is the first episode. After weeks of buildup and buzz, we finally get to see who has the stuff to take it all the way and who’s there simply for fodder and ratings. This season that title goes to Andy Dick. I just can’t see the Newsradio star doing well. Poor Sharna Burgess. After spending several seasons in the Dance Troupe, she finally gets promoted to the big time, but saddled with Dick. LOL. With that said, the duo looks like they having lots of fun in their official promo photo.
ABC just released all the competing stars with their professional partners. This crop of wannabe hoofers doesn’t have the star wattage as previous ones, but I’m really looking forward to this season. We have new pro blood in the form of STYCYD alum Lindsay Arnold, Gleb Savchenko and the aforementioned Burgess. Based on first impressions Karina Smirnoff, Derek Hough and Val Chmerkovskiy have the best chemistry with their stars. Check out all the photos below.
It’s not official until you see it in black and white. In this case, in shiny bedazzled colorful skimpy outfits. In other words, DWTS battle fatigues. Up to this point, only the identities of the celebrities coming back for Dancing With The Stars‘ first All-Stars season and their professional dancers have been revealed. Now, we finally have our first look at all the new and returning partnerships ready for battle, beginning on Monday, September 24 on ABC.
Of the thirteen stars fighting for the Season 15 mirrorball, only eleven promo shots have been released. Obviously, the thirteenth spot won’t be filled until Monday, August 27 when the results of the online voting between Kyle Massey, Sabrina Bryan and Carson Kressley will be announced. Personally, I’m hoping for Kyle or Carson.
The other missing photo is of Kirstie Alley and Maks Chmerkovskiy. Could there already be trouble in paradise? Apparently not, according to Alley’s Twitter. The actress revealed she’s been out of town, but will be posing with Maks for their picture next week. In the meantime, check out the couples who managed to make the photoshoot below.
The All-Stars returning for the 15th season of “Dancing With The Stars” finally know who they’ll be dancing with when the dancing competition kicks off on Monday, September 24. Let’s face it. As talented as you are, it all depends on who you get as your professional. Not all DWTS pros were created equal. Plus, you never know what kind of chemistry will result when you put two individuals together.
Of the twelve partnerships, five are previous pairings. Those five lucky stars are probably ecstatic they’re coming back into the competition with a familiar face on their side. It’s interesting to see who the producers decided to saddle which star with each pro. Cheryl Burke has three previous partners returning, while Derek Hough, the most-winning pro with three titles, has no one returning. Find out who they’ll be coaching this season below.
