Tonight, the ballroom was heated up with some serious fire as the stars took on the role of creative director for their entire routines. The task at hand? To take an iconic dance from a previous season and make it their own. They also had to live up to Len’s challenge from last week which was to give him something to remember and something that he never seen before. So, did the stars rise to the challenge?
This week, the duos face a double elimination so the stakes are even higher than ever. To say that the couples brought it tonight would be a complete understatement. I could keep telling you about it but I think the dances will speak for themselves.
I was a little late getting my recap of last night’s show up on the site but I’m right on time for the evening’s results. With the competition being so stiff this season with all of the all-stars, it’s going to be hard to predict who could be going home each week, especially when we get closer to the end. Right now, I feel like three are in the running for elimination. The first is Drew Lachey who, even though is a returning champion, couldn’t escape the claws of the bottom two last week.
I think Bristol Palin may have put the nail in her coffin last night with her dance but just like her season, I feel like America *cough* the producers *cough* will keep her around to keep that Republican footing and Sarah Palin in the audience. And lastly as much as it pains me to say it, Kirstie Alley has had two shaky weeks in a row. I hope that doesn’t translate to elimination. Let’s get to the first set of results.

First off, I have to apologize for the late arrival of my Dancing With The Stars recap today. Last night, Patrick and I were hitting up a few events and got home a little too late for me to spend two more hours recapping the show. I finally had a chance to catch up on the show this afternoon and have my my comments and feedback on last night’s performances ready for you. Honestly, I thought it was a great night!
Last week’s premiere definitely kicked off with a bang showing that these all-stars came back for one reason and one reason only- to win that coveted mirror ball trophy. The bar was set so high that it will be interesting to see just how hard the stars will bring it in the upcoming weeks. The competition is stiff and everyone has to be on their A-game. Let’s see how the stars did with the Quickstep and the Jive.
Last night, Dancing With The Stars kicked their all-star season off with a bang. The returning celebs didn’t hold anything back as they hit the ballroom to show the judges and America why they deserved to be back. Returning NFLer Emmitt Smith took the top score of the night while Pamela Anderson failed to impress the judges receiving he lowest score of the night. Will America’s votes completely flip the script.
For the first prolonged hour of tonight’s two-hour elimination episode, the couples were introduced individually with each star revealing why they returned to the show. YAWN! No one cares. The second hour finally kicked off with an impressive routine featuring the pros and this year’s troupe. You can watch it below if you missed it. Time for the first set of results of the night. Let’s meet the first four couples.

Here we are. Back at it again. Another season of Dancing With The Stars is upon us. But this time around, the anty has been upped as we are joined in the ballroom this year by zero rookies and a cast of thirteen returning stars. That’s right, it’s All-Stars time baby and not a minute too soon. Bringing back former winners, runners up and fan favorites, the show is sure to bring a slew of crazy competition, amazing dances and a little bit of drama. I can’t wait. So, how did last night’s premiere go?
I have to admit, I wasn’t going to watch or recap this season but the crew of all-stars sucked me in and I’m glad it did. The amount of talent that hit the hardwood last night was absolutely incredible. All be it, there were a few awkward dancers still that have skills yet to be refined. But some of the show’s hardest working and most memorable performers are definitely back with vengeance and are sure to bring it to the ballroom week after week. I think we are in for an exciting and high scoring season.
Speaking of scoring, this year the judges promise to be a lot tougher on the all-stars and have even added a .5 to all the scores to change the margins up just enough. Who will top the leader board and who will have to scrape the bottom of their fan barrel to stay in the competition? Watch all the night’s performances below.
Last night, the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards aired live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The night was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel who I think did a great job. He opened up the show with a skit that involved many of the night’s leading women beating the botox out of him (I’ve included the video of this below). There were some funny moments (Amy Poehler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus during her acceptance speech) and some touching moments too (when Aaron Paul accepted his award for Breaking Bad).
Some of the winners were predictable, while others came as a surprise. That being said, to some Homorazzi cast members, there wasn’t that much that was surprising to them. As you may or may not know, five of us decided to pool together our predictions for some of the key categories and we laid them out in our predictions article. Now, that the results are in, we can see who won.
It was very close between two cast members, but in the end one came out on top. One cast member got them all wrong. Find out how myself, Donovan, Adam, Tyrell, Matt, and Nic did below. I’ve highlighted the winners in each category in bold.
Since the 64th annual Emmys air on ABC tomorrow, we thought it was the perfect time to share our predictions on who’ll walk away with the coveted statues. Will reigning shows like Modern Family and Mad Men continue their winning streaks, or will new upstarts like Girls and Homeland crash the party? For the first time, none of the big four broadcast networks has a series among the nominees for drama series. In fact, only two nominees in the comedy category air on a major network. It’s all about cable these days. Without further ado, check out all our predictions below. Which Homorazzi.com writer do you think will get the most correct? Sound off in our comments section with your thoughts.
Donovan: Mad Men
Patrick: Game of Thrones
Adam: Breaking Bad
Tyrell: Downton Abbey
Matt: Game of Thrones
Nic: Game of Thrones
Looks like all that hard campaigning was worth it for Sabrina Bryan. The 27-year-old performer beat out Carson Kressley and Kyle Massey to secure the 13th slot on the upcoming All-Stars season of Dancing With The Stars. Bryan is arguably the best dancer out of the three and should prove a formidable foe for the other twelve returning stars.
In Season 5, she received a perfect ’30’ during the fourth week of competition. In a shocking turn of events, she was eliminated just two weeks later in one of the most surprising exits in the show’s history. Not surprisingly, Bryan is excited for a shot at redemption. Here’s what she told Good Morning America, after she was revealed as the final competitor.
“I am so excited. I’m getting teary eyed just right now. I feel like the stars are aligning and I get a second chance.” About Carson Kressley and Kyle Massey, she continued, “It was a fight… we all three really wanted it. I’m the lucky one with some amazing, incredible fans that have really stuck behind me.”
During her first stint on the show, Sabrina was paired up with Mark Ballas. Since her former partner is saddled with Bristol Palin for the All-Stars season, Bryan has a new professional to work with. Have any guesses on who?
