DWTS Season 20, Week 2 – Dancing by the Numbers

Well, DWTS Season 20 Week 2 is in the history books and it was a pretty good week. There was nothing that made me snort in disgust (from the judges, anyway) and a whole bunch of pretty darn good to great dancing.

But, as usual, someone has to go home on Monday night. Last week I was pretty clear when I said “Either Charlotte or Redfoo” and said my number 1 choice for most likely to be eliminated was Charlotte. I was pleasantly surprised to find that she was safe – most likely by 0.10 percent. No, I don’t believe Suzanne was a real bottom 2. For her to be a real bottom 2, it meant that Charlotte got nearly 10k more votes per million votes cast than her and that Redfoo did nearly that much – and there ain’t no way you’re convincing me of that. Nope. I think that’s highly unlikely.

Now, normally, I would automatically assume that Charlotte was definitely the next to go. But I’m not so sure that’s true. Why? Well, let’s look at all the scores. …Read more

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Willow Shields Teases On Her Costume For Tonight On Dancing With The Stars And More

Willow Shields has written a new blog at Access Hollywood. She writes of want a “crazy week” it’s been. She celebrated last week’s dance with her family and then it was back to work on the Paso Doble with Mark, but, not without some complications with an injury. More below. More are the link too including a new drawing of her costume for tonight. It’s awesome.

I went out to a great dinner with my family to celebrate, but the next morning, it was time to get back to work. Next dance, the Pasodoble. Mark started out by giving me a short lesson on the history of the dance and it’s Spanish roots. He also explained how the woman’s skirt can represent a matador’s cape. Because of my age I’m sure our dance may be a little different than some other couples, but we’re really focusing on the intensity and passion.

I was feeling pretty good about our progress about half way through the week and then during a practice of a dip, I fell onto Mark’s knee knocking the wind out me. I kind of hit in an awkward way with my back slightly twisted. I have to admit, I’ve never had the air knocked out of me and it was a little scary. It took me awhile to catch my breath and also realized my ribs really hurt too. But really I was most upset at the thought of anything stopping me from competing. I’ve never really talked about the idea of wanting to win this competition, I’ve been having so much fun, but while trying to catch my breath I worried that this could keep me from winning. Maybe it took getting injured to make me realize how much I really wanted that darn mirrorball!

Well the doctor checked me out and let me know that I would have some bruising and be really sore for at least two days. Good thing is that he said I could continue practicing unless any of the pain worsened. But there’s not a lot of time and losing even a half of a day would put me behind schedule. But there’s nothing I can do. I went to a chiropractor that afternoon and besides trying to relieve my sore back he discovered I had a rib out of place and popped it back into position. Instantly, I felt better and my breathing even became easier. I think this chiropractor may be my new bestie!

Find Out What Dancing With The Stars Noah Galloway And Sharna Burgess Have Planned For Tonight – Video

Cameron Mathison interviewed Noah Galloway And Sharna Burgess. Here they are on Good Morning America talking about their journey and what they have in store for tonight for their Argentine Tango. #AwwwwwMoment GO GET EM, NOAH and SHARNA!!

ETA: Noah talked with People about using his new Prosthetic arm. It sounds like the time isn’t right just yet?

So when will he show off his new secret weapon? Soon, Galloway hints, but not during tonight’s performance of the Argentine tango.

“I don’t wear one in my daily life, so it hasn’t been necessary, because I have everything I need in my right arm,” he told PEOPLE. “Prosthetics take time to adapt to, and because this all happened so quickly, I wasn’t used to wearing an arm and didn’t have time to adapt to the new technology in time. We tried one out for this week but only had two days to practice with it, and decided I just need more time with it before I’m ready to use it in a dance.”

Eventually, Galloway – who is the new spokesmodel for the Kenneth Cole cologne Mankind – may work his new prosthetic arm into his daily activities. He told PEOPLE he owns three prosthetic legs – one of which he uses for running only.

“It hasn’t been anything I’ve thought about, having gone so long using one arm for my daily routine,” said Galloway. “I want to start using it more for different activities.”

DWTS Russia Week 7: Watch Gleb Savchenko And Adelina Sotnikova Dance An Argentine Tango

DWTSRussaATangoGlebSavchenko

Wow, is the photo of Adelina Sotnikova above not beautiful?! Powerful stuff! Gleb Savchenko posted it at his instagram saying, “Tomorrow is gonna be epic!!!! We are dancing an Argentine Tango.” Bring it on Gleb and Adelina! We can’t wait!!!

For those wanting to tune into Dancing With The Stars Russia today to watch Gleb Savchenko, Adelina Sotnikova, and Elena Samodanova, see Live Russia TV. If the LIVE stream doesn’t work, check my twitter page or dm me at twitter and I’ll send you another link. It starts at 9:45 ET. Or stay tuned to the spot below as we plan to post pictures and a video of Gleb and Adelina as soon as we can. Thanks to All who are following. We also so appreciate our Russian translators too who post in comments on the show.

ETA: Adelina and Gleb’s dance was indeed “epic”. It touched me so much, I cried. The dance had some of the best choreography I’ve ever seen him do. It was visually stunning with the ocean and water effects. The moves at the end were show stopping. They scored a perfect 50 and placed 1st this week. They placed 3rd over all (I thought for sure this dance would put them in 2nd or 1st place).
