I don’t want to brag, but I do want to point out how right my predictions were about the music that would be performed on tonight’s Dancing with the Stars. Actually I really surprised myself when my predictions were dead on. The only one I missed was that Aretha Franklin would do 2 songs. Honestly, I was just amazed with the incredible talent DWTS is able to bring to the show. Here’s the full list of songs sung:
This was an interesting video to see Nigel Lythgoe talking about Dancing with the Stars. He touches on some interesting issues about SYTYCD stars making the move over to Dancing with the Stars including Lacey Schwimmer and even the possibility of Chelsie Hightower being on the show. Chelsie is beautiful and would be an interesting addition to the show. Nigel also talked about fat dancers and what he thought about people calling Lacey Schwimmer a fat dancer.

We already know for sure that Julianne Hough will be singing her new single “My Hallelujah Song” while brother Derek Hough & old partner Mark Ballas dance. (Check out Julianne Hough’s music video for My Hallelujah Song on iTunes )
Being a Las Vegas boy, I’m willing to bet that Leona Lewis will be performing her song Bleeding Love . (Check out her music video also ) That song has been one of the most popular songs ever on So You Think You Can Dance and I think that it will do really really well on Dancing with the Stars too. I’m looking forward to seeing her perform it live.
Anyone want to make a guess on what Aretha Franklin will sing when Kristi Yamaguchi & Mark Ballas return to the dance floor? I’d love to hear her sing Respect. What about John Legend? Maybe Green Light?
I don’t think it’s any surprise that Disney (also owns ABC) darling Miley Cyrus will be singing “Fly on the Wall” on the finale show. A very nice pick. Although, I must admit that it’s really interesting that there have been so many younger talents singing on the show. I can’t imagine Dancing with the Stars is trying for the younger demographic. Maybe they just assume they already have the older demographic locked in.
Both the stars and the professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars are incredible talents. Tonight’s semi final performance was when the Dancing with the Stars talent really starts to show. The dancers are so refined and have been trained so well that each of the performances is incredible.
As usual, here’s a list of all the music performed by the talented band. I have a few missing, but will update them as I find them.
