Last night was Broadway night on Dancing With The Stars with routines dedicated to songs from shows that have graced the stages of the great white way. To kick the show off, the cast of Sister Act performed a rocking medley of songs from the Tony nominated show. What a great way to begin the night. After that, the stars kicked off their performances. Tonight, we would see everything from Cha Chas, to Quicksteps, and even a Rumba.
But, now that the stars have reached the halfway point in the competition, it’s time for them to endure the group dance. This season, the routine was choreographed by Kevin Maher and you can check it out at the end of the recap. So, with the stars at their breaking point having to learn two dances, who would crack under the pressure and who would rise to the challenge?
With only a few competitors left in the season, I thought I would provide you with all the routines to watch versus picking just my favorites. So, watch all of the dances and check out their scores below.
Last night, the ballroom was transferred back in time to the 1980′s for a Manic Monday on Dancing With The Stars. We heard some epic tunes but failed to see a slew of amazing routines. Ricki Lake who has found a safe spot at the top fell short this week creating a new leader in J.R. However, crowd favorite Carson Kressley failed to impress with his routine. So, will he be saved by his fan base once again or will he be sent packing? Let’s find out.
Our first celebrities to find out their fate are Ricki Lake and Hope Solo. Ricki and Derek are safe but Hope and Maks are in jeopardy. After a quick montage on how the stars and their pro partners have got on, we’re treated to a performance of Mr. Know It All by Kelly Clarkson. I absolutely love this song and she sounded so great live tonight. Accompanied by Tristan and Kym on the floor, the performance was absolutely amazing!
Tonight, we were treated to an AT&T Spotlight Performance. This is to showcase a dancer who overcame extreme obstacles to pursue dance and how it’s changed their lives. Tonight, we were introduced to Charm Ladonna who despite growing up in Compton and watching her mother struggle to pay for dance classes, booked a tour with Madonna and used the money to pay her way through college. She then did an epic performance with Derek Hough and Mark Ballas to Till The World Ends. Anyone else notice the inspiration at the top of the number?
Last week, pop princess Chynna Phillips made a big flop in the ballroom when she blanked on her routine and was sent packing. In my opinion, too soon as I thought she had some great potential. Tonight, the stars and their partners will pay tribute to one of my favorite decades (even though I was born half way through it). I’m talking about 80′s Week.
I know I’m a little late on the recap here but better later than never right? Donovan has already shared the music of the night which brought us back to the good ol’ days, but how did the routines fare? I checked them out and am ready to give you my four favorites. I have to say this week, the talent and skill didn’t quite match last week’s epic movie madness. However, one star impressed me so much with his improvements, I couldn’t help but put him in my top four. Check out my picks below.
Tonight on Dancing With The Stars, we were treated to a whole lot of fluff and not a lot of actual DWTS, however, the filler was worth it this week with the return of Julianne Hough to the ballroom. Not only would she dance with her Footloose co-star Kenny Wormwald but she will also do a duet with her brother Derek Hough. Also added to the evening’s list of performers is Raphael Saadiq and the woman who broke all of our hearts with her first audition on …Got Talent, Susan Boyle.
With all of these condiments, it’s easy to forget that there is actually some meat to this Dancing With The Stars sandwich. That’s right, there is a dancing competition going on. Last night was evening of exciting highs and lowest lows. Chynna Phillips had a rollercoaster night when she hit the hardwood but blanked and forgot her routine. However, Ricki Lake soared to the top of the leaderboard for the third week in a row. But, who would be safe and who would be sent packing?
Tonight, three big names are in the bottom three. Chynna Phillips, Rob Kardashian and Nancy Grace. So who will be the star heading home tonight? Check out Susan Boyle and the Footloose performance and see who went home after the jump.
Last week was a rough week on Dancing With The Stars. After sharing personal stories through their routines, the cast grew closer than ever. The heartbreak continued as the ballroom went into shock after TV sweetheart Kristin Cavallari didn’t have the votes to stay in the competition and was sent home.
This week, the stars will be dancing to some of the most epic movie themes of all time. We’ll see the tango, the paso doble and more. With the pressure at it’s highest, the stars are beginning to hit their breaking points. Who will come out on top tonight? Check out my four favorite routines from the night below.
After last night’s emotional night of personal stories, the stars are ready to hear their fate as one of them will be sent packing. But, you can’t get a night of eliminations without a little performance from R&B queen, Mary J. Blige who gives an electrifying performance of “Real Love.” You always forget how good that song is until you hear it again. I digress. Let’s get to our first set of results.
The first three stars to hear their fate are Chaz Bono, who had a pretty rough night falling to bottom once again, Ricki Lake who took the ballroom by storm with her emotional rumba, and J.R. Martinez who had the ballroom in tears with his portrayal of the men and women who served our country but didn’t come home. All three couples are declared safe and will dance again next week.
The next four stars to hear their fate are Nancy Grace who performed a beautiful number dedicated to her children, Carson Kressley who brought the house down with his funny and witty tango, Hope Solo who turned up the sex but failed to impress the judges and Rob Kardashian who showed the most signs of improvement. In the end, Hope and Carson would be in jeopardy and Rob and Nancy would be safe.
After a tribute from the troupe to “Gone With The Wind” to celebrate next week’s episode with music from movie scores, we are treated to the Macy’s Stars of Dance performance featuring Estelle. The R&B superstar starts off with a slew of men until she introduces the originator of the twist, Chubby Checkers. The performance is a lot of fun and totally electrifying. More results below.
Another Monday, another night of Dancing With The Stars. Last week, we lost the beautiful and talented model Elisabetta Canalis. In my opinion, definitely a little too early for her to go. Tonight, the stars must give us their best depiction of an important year and moment in their life. It was definitely an emotional night so before you watch the dances, make sure you get a tissue or ten.
I’ve compiled a list of my four favorite routines from the night for you to re-watch or watch for the first time. Check them out below and tell me which routine was your favorite.
Tonight, another celebrity bites the dust on Dancing With The Stars. In an hour show jam packed with enough filler to give hot dogs a run for their money, we are treated to performances from Demi Lovato and one of my favorite bands, The Script. We were also given a great performance from the Macy’s Stars of Dance. So let’s find out who our bottom couples were.
After a night of performances that were a little underwhelming from the celebrities who were early favorites, I wasn’t really sure who would end up in the bottom. Tonight, we discover it will be David Arquette and his partner Kym Johnson, Chaz Bono and his partner Lacey Schwimmer and Elisabetta Canalis and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy. After some epic lighting and booming strings, we discover that Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer are safe and will return next week.
So we’re down to the bottom two. Who will be eliminated? David Arquette or Elisabetta Canalis? Find out who was eliminated below and check out the performances from The Script and an inspiring performance from Demi Lovato after the jump.
