People for the Ethical Treatment of Dancers DWTS Video

Dancing with the Stars is always doing some interesting videos on the results show. Week 8 of Dancing with the Stars was probably the best that they’ve ever done. Check out the following video of “People for the Ethical Treatment of Dancers.” (A nice take off of Peta with naked pro dancers)

Dancing with the Stars Special Guest Robin Thicke

Tonight was quite the shocker for me. I was certain that Melissa Rycroft would be going home. I guess I seriously underestimated the number of fans that are sympathetic to Melissa. Add in the injury and Melissa really must have garnered a ton of sympathy votes.

Don’t get me wrong. Melissa is a wonderful dancer and I don’t like anyone getting sent home due to injury, but I really thought that Julianne and Chuck would have gotten more votes. Hard to believe that Ty and Chelsie is possibly more popular than Chuck and Julianne. Pretty amazing stuff.

Well, as usual here’s the list of Dancing with the Stars music from the week 8 results show:
Robin Thicke sang the song “When I Get You Alone” Thicke - A Beautiful World - When I Get You Alone for Alec Mazo, Edyta Sliwinska, Cheryl Burke, Tony Dovolani, Kym Johnson, and Dmitry Chaplin’s professional dance performance.

Robin Thicke sang the song “Sidestep” Robin Thicke - Something Else (Deluxe Edition) - Sidestep to special guest professional dancers Pasha Kovalev and Anya Garnis (of So You Think You Can Dance fame)

Professional Dancer Competition (future Dancing with the Star professional)
Genya Mazo & Afton DelGrosso danced a Quickstep
Mayo Alanen & Anna Demidova danced a Jive
Brent Borbon and Snow Urbin were knocked out of the competition to be the next professional on Dancing with the Stars.

Dancing with the Stars on InFANity

InFANity is a show on the TV Guide channel that I’d never heard of before – but this week they delve into Dancing with the Stars. The video is in five parts, each part covering different aspects of the show. Every part has a lot of clips of dances and interviews, past and present. Stars from every season are interviewed, as are the judges and the hosts. The only people we see, but don’t hear a lot from, are my favorites – The Pros.

Part 1 – About the Show and the Judges

Part 2 – The Stars and The Winners

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. :-)

Celtic Woman and Natasha Bedingfield Perform on Dancing with the Stars Results Show

I always love the Dancing with the Stars results shows. Not because of the results. They drag that out too much. Instead, I love to see the special guest performances and adore seeing the professional dancers interpret the music and show their incredible skills. The following were tonight’s special guests on Dancing with the Stars:
Natasha Bedingfield sang the song “Soulmate” Natasha Bedingfield - Pocketful of Sunshine - Soulmate while Dmitry Chaplin and Lacey Schwimmer performed.

Celtic Woman sang the song “You Raise Me Up” Celtic Woman - The Greatest Journey - Essential Collection - You Raise Me Up while Eric Luna and Georgia Ambarian performed.

I must admit that I wasn’t sad to see Lawrence go home at all. I’m always sad when Edyta is gone, but Edyta and Lawrence just didn’t have a great connection so it was all good. I am very happy that Ty is still sticking around. Chelsie’s worked wonders.
