DWTS 11 Week 9 Video Performances

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Tonight is the DWTS Semi-finals. Whoah. Where did the time go? Next week, the final 3 couples will battle it out for the coveted Mirror Ball trophy. Tonight, we will find out who has what it takes to take them all the way to the top. Tonight, each couple will perform two dances. First, they will perform in a latin round where the star must break apart from their pro and dance a solo. Then, the ballroom round where the couple must compete a style they have not yet competed. I think tonight is going to get very heated. Obviously, IMHO, Bristol doesn’t stand a chance against the other 3 stars. Brandy and Jennifer have consistently been on top with Kyle not far behind. However, Bristol seems to continue to fly under the radar and make it through to the next round. Will this week be the end of the activist or will she live to fight another day?


Song: “Firework” – Katy Perry
We start off with Brandy and Maks. These two have shared the lead for the last four weeks so will this dance keep them on top? With this Paso, Brandy must also break away from Maks and perform a solo. Her biggest competition is Jennifer for sure but her growth has brought her a long way and if she can overcome a few of her obstacles, she may go all the way. On to their dance. They perform to one of my favorite Katy Perry songs. They begin with this little acting sequence that leaves something to be desired. It feels contrived and I don’t think the panel will like it. As Maks walks off, Brandy follows with her solo which she actually executed well in my opinion. Once her and Maks connect again the Paso is on and I’m digging it. Song choice is such a big deal for me and I think this song was the wrong choice for this Paso at this stage in the competition. However, song aside, I thought Brandy danced it well and embodied the character that was given to her. She finishes alone, strong centre floor. Len said that Brandy came out 100% and gave everything she got. Bruno thought Brandy released all of her aggression but lost finesse a few times when she let it all out. Carrie Ann agreed with both judges and thought she was locked into the character and used her upper body well. I agree with all of their comments but did they honestly not watch the first 20 seconds of the dance? Hmm.

Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 27 out of 30

On Monday, the stars and the pros had a big challenge on their hands. Not only did they have to learn one routine, but they also had to learn a second routine knowing only their style but not knowing their music. After their first performance, each couple picked their song out of a mirror ball and had 20 minutes to configure their routine backstage, before hitting the floor and performing for the judges. The instant dance brought out the best in some of the stars like Jennifer and Kyle but brought out the worst in Maks who didn’t agree with Carrie Ann’s criticism that they should have started the dance right when the music started. A top the leader board is Brandy and Maks and Jennifer and Derek while at the bottom is Bristol and Mark once again. Has Bristol finally put the nail in her coffin or will the ballroom be shocked once again?

Here are the stars that are safe and in jeopardy:

Kyle and Lacey: SAFE
Jennifer and Derek: SAFE
Kurt and Anna: IN JEOPARDY
Bristol and Mark: SAFE
Brandy and Maks: IN JEOPARDY

The short answer is YES. When? Not sure. Last week the Israeli edition of “Dancing With The Stars” caught media attention worldwide when they featured the first ever same-sex couple on any edition of the dancing competition show. Israeli television sports correspondent Gili Shem Tom, an out and proud lesbian, was partnered with professional female dancer, Dorit Milman. The two scored a 17 for their first dance, the Cha-Cha-Cha.

Since the casting stunt made headlines everywhere, including the United States, the US edition’s production team is now actively looking to do the same. The ABC hit show knows a thing or two about stunt casting. Ever since Kate Gosselin’s trainwreck factor brought in massive ratings to the show, DWTS has been trying to replicate that each season. Just look at Bristol Palin’s presence this year. So who do the producers have in mind? Check out below.

Last week, Rick and Cheryl were eliminated with a shock. Two stars who have topped the leader board have gone home yet Bristol, who has been on the bottom, seems bullet proof. Tonight, the stars must compete with two dances. One classic ballroom and one Instant Dance where they have already learned the dance and style but won’t know the song until it is revealed LIVE tonight. This going to be a doozy and while absolutely separate the sheep from the wolves. Lets begin!


SONG: “Breathe (2 AM)” by Anna Nalick
Last Monday, Kyle impressed the judges with his fiery Paso. Bruno said he had the attack of an untrained young bull. This week however, is make it or break it for him. During rehearsals, Lacey is screaming and yelling at Kyle but he finds it hilarious. Last time this couple had the Waltz, Len gave Kyle a big scolding for his improper footwork. Now that the competition is tight, its time for Kyle to pull up. Lacey is wearing the most beautiful green dress and Kyle looks dapper in his suit. The couple is connected well right off the bat and Kyle looks smooth on the floor with his footwork matching Lacey’s perfectly. Their sweeping movements across the floor show off their musicality. Lacey did some great choreography for this piece and I think it was smart and really gave Kyle a chance to show how much he has grown. I loved it. I’d give it a 9. Len starts off by listing off a bunch of technique he did well during the routine and thought he did well. Bruno says he is charmed by Kyle and thought he became a sophisticated young man through this routine. Bruno also admires Kyle for taking the criticisms and becoming a better dancer. Carie Ann said her crush on Kyle is back. She thought the piece looked like a fairytale come to life. (PS: Did anyone notice Carie Ann’s new, straight and dark hair? Looks good, right?)

Carie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 27 out of 30

After the scores, Kyle and Lacey pick their song for their Instant Dance. They picked “Good Golly Miss Molly” by Little Richard. They head off to go practice.

Last night, the 200th show celebration was star studded and the guest judges brought the highest scores of the season. Brandy held on to her title of top dog but Jennifer Grey fought back to tie her at the top of the leader board. Bristol and Mark are back at the bottom of the board. Will we be shocked by another elimination or is Bristol back on a flight home to Alaska? We begin the night with Len picking his favorite team dance of the night which were captained by two returning stars Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Anton Ohno. They picked Team Apolo (the winning team) to perform again. The 6 dancers performed the hell out of it once again.

Brandy and Maks and Bristol and Mark are first to hear their results. Brandy was nervous prior to her routine and tried hard to think about the leader board. Her little slip up caught the eye of Bruno and Carie Ann but Len excused it because it was the best Foxtrot of the season he thought, even rewarding them a 10. Bristol and Mark had the Viennese Waltz and Bristol said that she didn’t like the dance at all. He even told her to go over the top before they began. Kelly Osbourne thought she did fantastic, but Bristol feels defeated and tired and misses her baby boy at home. She is exhausted and overwhelmed despite the fact that she received her highest scores ever.

Brandy and Maks: SAFE
Bristol and Mark: IN JEOPARDY

DWTS 11 Week 7 Video Performances: 200th Episode!

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

They made it all the way to 11 Seasons over 5 years and now, we celebrate the 200th Episode of Dancing With the Stars. Tonight, the show brings out more stars than you can shake a stick at. Not only do 2 of the past stars coach and captain the team challenge but a few even become guest judges for the evening, weighing in on the stars dances and even scoring them to add to Carie Ann, Len and Bruno’s final total making tonight’s score out of 40. Will the guest judges be kind to our stars or use their past experiences to rain down harsh criticisms. Well, I can’t wait to find out! The drama is heightened as the pressure to perform is higher than ever. The stars must reincarnate a dance made famous by one of the stars and that star will then judge the corresponding routine. So, lets begin!

We begin the evening with all the pros from all of the seasons dancing to the very first song ever performed on the show, Crazy in Love by Beyonce. The pros NAILED it of course with amazing footwork, lifts and tricks. The final section with Louis Van Amstel at the front leading the way was brilliant ending in an explosion of silver streamers bring the judges to their feet. Amaze-balls. What did you think of the opener?

Rock Week ignited the ballroom and the leader board got flipped upside down. Former favorites went down in flames and others surprised us all. Its either time to rock on or roll out. The bottom three couples are up first to hear their fate. Bristol and Mark, Kurt and Anna and Jennifer and Derek. Bristol and Mark had their most amazing night with the Tango. I didn’t even recognize the woman on the floor. Kurt and Anna couldn’t find the right groove for his routine. It wasn’t polished and just couldn’t come together. Jennifer and Derek couldn’t balance technique and performance and went overboard and ended up falling out of one of their turns. Carie Ann said she was going down hill. Here are the first set of results:

  • Bristol and Mark: SAFE
  • Kurt and Anna: SAFE
  • Jennifer and Derek: IN JEOPARDY

The judges get to pick their favorite dance to see once again. They picked the couple who received their highest marks of the season thus far, Bristol and Mark. I think that’s a great choice for the night.

DWTS Top 10 Dances Of All Time

In: TV Shows, Tyrell, Videos

Tonight, we were treated to the Top 10 Dances of all time on Dancing With the Stars as voted by you the viewers, in celebration of their 200th episode. We were able to vote on any dance by any star from all previous 10 seasons. I agree with some of the list but I think some incredible dances are missing. Here is the list from bottom to the top!


SONG: Do Your Thing
Did You Know?: Mark chose green for their costumes because it is his favorite color. At 17 years old, Shawn was the youngest champion of Dancing With the Stars. The day before the show, during rehearsal, Shawn gave herself a concussion attempting the backflip with Mark. Too bad they didn’t pick the one where Mark got a boner during their performance. A MUST Google image search: “mark ballas erection”. Enjoy!
