Alfonso Ribeiro capped off Dancing With The Stars last night with the dance everyone has been anticipating since his involvement with Season 19 was announced. The 43-year-old actor chose his years on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has his most memorable. Though he looks fondly on his experience now, it wasn’t always the case. For years after the show ended, he reveals casting directors wouldn’t call him for being so associated with his character, Carlton Banks.

Ribeiro revisited Carlton this week, more specifically his signature dance on the hit NBC sitcom. In a Broadway Jazz routine choreographed by Witney Carson, Alfonso shined reliving his glory days. Witney, on her part, does a pretty mean Carlton herself. Watch the dance below which earned them a perfect score of 40. Naturally, the dance was set to the tune of “It’s Not Unusual” by Tom Jones.

On a side note, is anyone else bummed that Betsey Johnson was eliminated last night? Though she was never going to win, she always put a smile on my face with her charming routines. I can’t believe the woman is in her 70s. Girl looks good and don’t get me started with her flexibility.

As what’s come to be expected during her 1000 Forms Of Fear era, Sia has once again decided to not face the audience to perform “Chandelier.” I hope this phase ends soon. As much as I enjoy watching Lena Dunham and Maddie Ziegler execute angst-y choreography, I’d like to see Sia’s face for a change.

Speaking of killer contemporary dance moves, Allison Holker absolutely slays the routine during Sia’s performance. She joins music video standout Ziegler in an epic dance.

I’m so glad Dancing With The Stars hired Holker as one of the pros. She’s by far my favorite part of this season. Fingers crossed, she does well her freshman cycle. Check out Sia, Allison and Maddie kill “Chandelier’ below.

dwts-season-19-premiere

The premiere of any Dancing With The Stars season is my favorite. Watching which stars come out as the early frontrunners and surprise me with their dancing talent brings out my inner nerd. It’s not uncommon to see me break into a smile or clap after witnessing an endearing performance. The Season 19 kick-off was no different.

Though the cast has been criticized for not being exciting or bringing in the star wattage, I quite enjoyed the show. Not surprisingly, Alfonso Ribeiro topped the leaderboard, scoring 9s across the board. After all, he did dance with Michael Jackson as a kid and gave us ‘The Carlton’ on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It was great his Silver Spoons co-star, Ricky Schroeder, showed his support in the audience.

The one who surprised me the most was Randy Couture. Who knew the wrestler could be so graceful? He’s my dark horse pick. Even though they have no shot in hell to win the mirrorball, both Tommy Chong and Betsey Johnson made me smile. They’re both so adorable and gave better-than-expected performances given their age. Well done. Hopefully, Johnson survives this week despite having the lowest score of the night.

Along with the aforementioned, I’m also rooting for Jonathan Bennett, Lea Thompson and Janel Parrish to do well.

Personally, I hope LoLo Jones gets the axe. She had resting bitch face the entire night after messing up her dance. In all seriousness, she was a flat out BITCH which is a shame because I like her pro, new-to-the-show Keo Motsepe. Check out her misstep below, along with all the other performances.

dwts-season-19-cast

Season 19 of Dancing With The Stars is officially underway. The cast for the upcoming season was announced by Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews (glad she’s back) Thursday morning on Good Morning America. While some of the celebrities were expected (thanks to spoilers), there were still a couple of pleasant surprises.

By far, the star I’m most excited about is The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum Alfonso Ribiero. Can anyone say ‘The Carlton?’ The actor revealed he’d also incorporate a couple of classic Michael Jackson moves in his routines. Ribeiro starred alongside the King of Pop as a kid during a Pepsi commercial. Not only will Alfonso provide plenty of entertainment, but he’s also a viable contender. Team Carlton for the win.

The veteran reality competition show ups its fashion game this season by enlisting fashion vlogger Bethany Mota and iconic designer Betsey Johnson. The latter confirmed her signature cartwheels would be in the mix.

Noticeably missing are recent Bachelorette Andi Dorfman and American Ninja Warrior standout Kacy Catanzaro. The two were rumored to be joining the cast. Check out the entire cast below which includes a former Calvin Klein underwear model, Mean Girls alum, Olympian and wrestler to name a few. Their professional partners were also revealed.

dwts-season-19-cast-rumors

ABC doesn’t officially announce the Dancing With The Stars Season 19 cast until Thursday, September 4 on Good Morning America. However, names of several celebrities possibly participating have began to surface. Whether these rumors are true, we’ll have to wait til next week. In the meantime, enjoy the speculation.

Of the rumored cast, one of the biggest names is Antonio Sabato, Jr. The General Hospital alum and former Calvin Klein underwear model will certainly appease those women who like their men a little more seasoned. He was so cute back in the day as one of Janet Jackson’s music video love interests.

Occupying the middle-aged actress slot is Lea Thompson of Back To The Future and Caroline In The City fame. Eccentric fashion designer Betsey Johnson is one I’m hoping is true. She’s so kooky and I can’t wait for her pro to incorporate her signature cartwheel in one of her dances. Check out the other possible contenders below which includes a Mean Girls star.

dwts-julianne-hough-judge

Before you get too excited, she’s not returning as one of the professional dancers. Rather, Julianne Hough will have a permanent spot on the panel for Dancing With The Stars Season 19. She won’t be replacing anyone. Instead, she will sit alongside panel regulars Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman as the fourth judge.

“I’m so excited to be back with my “Dancing with the Stars” family again on a regular basis,” Hough later said in a statement. “I’ve always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I’m acting, dancing or singing, and I’m thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits.”

She added, “Derek and I just finished our Move Live on Tour, which reminded me how much I miss the interaction with the dance fans that have been so supportive of me in my career. I am warming up the paddles and the sass, and I’m ready to have fun in this new role.”

While I enjoyed Hough as one of the pros, her appearances as a guest judge left something to be desired. Clearly the producers felt otherwise. Love it or hate it, viewers will now have to sit through four critiques for each dance. #overkill. Watch Hough make the announcement on Good Morning America earlier today.

Best.Decision.Ever!!!

Allison Holker is widely regarded as one of the best dancers to ever grace the So You Think You Can Dance stage. She was totally robbed on Season 2. Anyone else agree?

The 26-year-old is one of three new pros joining Season 19 of Dancing With The Stars. You just know Holker is going to come up with some wicked contemporary numbers for her celebrity. On the flip side, I can’t wait to see how proficient she is with traditional ballroom dances.

For those bummed that Maksim Chmerkovskiy opted to not return, another piece of man eye candy has been recruited. Artem Chigvintsev (bottom right), another SYTYCD alum, makes his debut as a pro on the US version. He appeared as part of the troupe last season and a featured pro on the UK version, Strictly Come Dancing. Chigvintsev also previously dated DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Burn the Floor veteran Keoikantse “Keo” Motsepe (top right) rounds out the newbies.

Before I begin, a huge congratulations to Maksim Chmerkovskiy for finally winning his first Mirror Ball trophy. After Derek Hough’s beautiful yet gimmicky rope trick during the DWTS Season 18 finals, I was worried Maks and Meryl Davis wouldn’t win. Thankfully America got it right. Just like everyone else, I echo the sentiment that Maks and Meryl need to date. They’re so friggin’ adorable together. The Olympian brought out a new side and tamed the beast.

It’s no secret that I wouldn’t mind being in a Chmerkovskiy sandwich. I find both Val and Maks extremely attractive with the slight edge to the younger sibling. The two get naked wearing only strategically placed hats for People Magazine’s “Hottest Bodies” feature.

After the photoshoot, the two participate in a playful game of “Him or Me.” From who’s more promiscuous and other juicy details, the brothers reveal all. While they don’t necessarily give the same answer for most questions, both agree on which brother requires a “bigger hat.” Find out who below.
