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.
Sean Lowe must feel like the world has been lifted off those sexy broad shoulders of his. Not only did he have to hide the fact he’s engaged to Catherine Giudici for months, but he was also forbidden to reveal he’s competing on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars. Boy can definitely keep a secret. Loose lips, sinks ships.
“I’ve always said I’m not looking for fame. In fact, I don’t like the fame aspect of The Bachelor or Dancing with the Stars,” Sean explains. “But when an opportunity like Dancing comes along, it’s too good to pass up. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
If Lowe can remotely dance, he’s got Season 16 of DWTS sewn up. America just loves this guy and I don’t blame them. IMHO, Lowe is the only person to survive his season of The Bachelor unscathed. Usually, a previous fan favorite comes off as a famewhore (Jake Pavelka) or dumbass for thinking with his other head (Benjamin Flajnik). Sean broke the trend and came off even more likeable. That’s what happens when you don’t become a man whore on national television. The cherry on top was seeing him cry as he watched his proposal to his Giudici for the first time. Now, that’s a real man.
As if the odds weren’t already in his favor, Sean gets partnered up with Peta Murgatroyd who’s a previous winner. Hopefully, newly-single Peta can keep their chemistry limited to the dance floor. I really want this televised wedding between Catherine and Sean to happen. Don’t you agree? It’ll be the first one ever for The Bachelor. Jason Mesnick’s runner-up wedding doesn’t count. Check out Peta and Sean’s official promo photo 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.
The season thirteen premiere of Dancing With The Stars is soon approaching and every day, we are given new teasers as of what we can look forward to this year. First there were the first look at rehearsals and now, we have been given the official pairing photos of the couples together.
Now, I hate to pick early favorites but I have to say that Kristin Cavallari looks absolutely stunning in her photos as well as Elisabetta Canalis (obviously). One photo that makes me chuckle is Hope Solo’s because I think the costume designer got confused and put her in a costume for the fallen Skating With The Stars.
On to the men. David Arquette’s photo is by far the best! He is really showcasing his personality and with those jazz hands, he’s ready to take on any challenge. I also cannot wait for the fierceness that is Carson Kressley. You know he’ll always be wearing something snappy, even to rehearsals. Check out the pair’s photos below.
