DWTS News – September 3, 2009

New rehearsal pictures at ET Online - at least, I don’t remember seeing these two before:

More from Donny courtesy of the Osmond owned ET Online …Kym is teaching him a sexy dance? No comment. :-)

Maks and Karina are performing at the Emmys, according to Marc Malkin on E! Online:

Dancing With the Stars’ real-life sweethearts Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are waltzing their way into the Emmys.

A source exclusively reveals that the husband-and-wife-to-be (they got engaged on New Year’s Eve) will be performing during the big awards show Sept. 20.

I know exactly what they’ll be doing, but I think I’m gonna hold off on telling ya too much so you can be surprised. I promise, however, it’s going to be fun.

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. :-)

DWTS Season 9 Update via Paparrazi

The guys at PopTV have a love affair with Dancing with the Stars, luckily for us. :-) And they’re not obnoxious. I have not had time to actually watch this video yet but it apparently contains footage from Chelsie/Louie, Edyta/Ashley and Louis/Kelly O.

Choreography with Cheryl and Maks!

Princess Heidi made an excellent point about my last post: The good, the bad, and the incredible hot choreography, stating that I was talking more about the execution than the actual choreography!  And I do agree…all the pros are phenomenal choreographers and it really is up to the celebrities to pull it off.  Therefore, when I talk about the choreography of the dances, I am referring to the technical aspect of how well the celebrities pull off the pros choreography! 

THE GOOD
Season 8: Gilles Marini, Argentine Tango
Cheryl is one of my favorite choreographers on the show!  I think this dance clearly shows what an argentine tango is supposed to be :)  Slow then fast and always sexy!  Gilles did an amazing job playing the part and partnered Cheryl very well!

 

THE BAD
Season 8: Denise Richards, Samba
Maks is an amazing dancer and choreographer!  I’m also a big fan of Denise Richards so I was excited about this pairing!  However, Denise could never pick up the musicality of Maks’ choreography!  She doesn’t have any hip action and her footing was always one step behind Maks’!

 

THE INCREDIBLY HOT
Wade Robeson has got to be one of the greatest choreographers of all time!  I absolutely love this piece he created and we have some of SYTYCD alums!

 

What other dances are you guys interested in seeing!  Look for the next post on Monday or tweet me (JeanneSchrodt) with ideas :)
