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.
My favorite part of every Dancing With The Stars season is the first episode. After weeks of buildup and buzz, we finally get to see who has the stuff to take it all the way and who’s there simply for fodder and ratings. This season that title goes to Andy Dick. I just can’t see the Newsradio star doing well. Poor Sharna Burgess. After spending several seasons in the Dance Troupe, she finally gets promoted to the big time, but saddled with Dick. LOL. With that said, the duo looks like they having lots of fun in their official promo photo.
ABC just released all the competing stars with their professional partners. This crop of wannabe hoofers doesn’t have the star wattage as previous ones, but I’m really looking forward to this season. We have new pro blood in the form of STYCYD alum Lindsay Arnold, Gleb Savchenko and the aforementioned Burgess. Based on first impressions Karina Smirnoff, Derek Hough and Val Chmerkovskiy have the best chemistry with their stars. Check out all the photos below.
Dancing With The Stars is back with a new cast of celebrities ready to throw on their dancing shoes and compete for the mirrorball trophy, alongside their talented professional partners. The new cast were announced by hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet on GMA this morning, along with the cast members for this season.
As with every season, there is quite the mix of celebrities that include country music stars, comedians, actors, Olympians and pro athletes, reality stars, and as usual, one token Disney star.
The new season begins on Monday, March 18 with a two-hour season premiere from 8-10pm ET, with the results show taking place the following week on Tuesday, March 26 at 9/10pm ET. Check out the cast of DWTS Season 16 below and vote for who you think will win this season.
In a new promo video slash commercial, Miracle Whip brings together one of the most random mixes of singers you could think of to sing what they call their “Open Mouth Anthem.”
In the video, Lance Bass, Susan Boyle, Wynonna Judd and several other singers join forces to sing about mayonnaise and opening your mouth to eat it. It’s so bizarre and funny at the same time because the joke is how seriously they are taking it. It actually reminds me of a “We Are The World” video, except just about mayo.
Watch the funny video below. You may end up asking yourself, “What the eff did I just watch?” LOL>
My heart is broken. Not only was my heart broken ONCE, but TWICE all within the same hour. First of all I found a spoiler hours before I saw the show and found out the the love of my life, my reason for tuning in every week, the best contestant this show has ever had LATRICE ROYALE was eliminated. THEN the bosses at Homorazzi told me that there would be NO INTERVIEW WITH LATRICE BECAUSE SHE WAS BUSY! Ugh as IF today’s Drag Race experience could get any worse. Ok I’m gonna try to get through this recap without breaking down.
This week’s theme was THE BITCH BALL but it’s not what you think. It all has to do with DOGS! Ok and a little bitching like in the mini challenge. Each one of the fantastic four was given a puppet of one of the other contestants. They had to drag out their puppet and do a 30 second puppet show. Brilliant. Sharon got Chad and of course played up her plastic surgery. Latrice got Sharon and did the goth thing, sadly she wasn’t very good. Chad was throwing FULL shade with the Phi Phi doll and it was hilarious, but it was definitely Phi Phi who had a Latrice doll that torn it down. Making fun of the jewelry breaking on stage…honey that shit was hilarious! Phi Phi didn’t win, Chad did and he got to choose what queen was paired up with what dog. Get it…BITCH BALL! Phi Phi got a blood hound, Latrice got a pomeranian, Chad took the Chinese crested and Sharon got a poodle, not only that but they had to do a musical number in the spirit of cats…only dogs! Oh Ru, you’re so funny!
Taylor Swift became the youngest person ever and the first female soloist in over a decade to win Entertainer of the year last night at the 43rd Annual CMT Awards. She was ecstatic – but not everyone was happy for her. No, Kanye wasn’t there…but Wynonna Judd
ge was. USA Today asked her what she thought of Taylor Swift’s win and this is what she had to say:
“You want my honest comment? It’s too much too soon. Time is God’s way of keeping everything from happening at once. It’s just too much of a good thing too soon. My thing is, being a home-school mom, I want kids to earn it, and I think some time … ‘cause mom and I rode in a car for the first year of our career to visit radio stations. There was a making of the star, there was a rising up, and the fans went with us. Now it’s over coffee breaks, the success, almost. You have to play catch up … It’s like the girl who wins an Oscar and she’s under 20. What do you do from here?”
You know what’s too much for a young girl? Haters like Kanye and Wynonna that can’t let the poor girl accept something she’s earned without opening their jealous jaws and saying something they’ll have to apologize for later. Seriously, shut up Whinenonna.
Last night, the CMA Awards was the most watched program, killing the competition in every key ratings category. In fact, it was the most watched CMA Awards in four years, the highest Adult 18-34 rating for the show in five years, and the best Women 18-34 rating in six years! Yup, you can thank Taylor, and Carrie Underwood for that too.
