Derek, Cheryl and Tom Bergeron at Disney’s D23 Expo

I put this up at Pure Derek Hough then realized maybe it should be here too, because of Cheryl and Tom – and the fact that this is a great dance by these two pros. They prove yet again that they are very hot together, and I think Derek really helps emphasize how great a dancer that Cheryl is. Is it just me or does Derek set himself up for one of his flip runs and changes his mind at the last minute? Smart move if he was off or the floor was too slick – you can really get hurt going through flips like that when you’re not set properly.

ETA: Sorry, needed to take this down. You can email me if you need or want an explanation. ;-)

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. :-)

Paso Doble and Mambo time!!!!

There are so many video’s of rehearsals being leaked and I’m so excited to see these newbie’s take on the cha cha, foxtrot, salsa, or viennese waltz in 2 weeks!  Until then…here’s another the good, the bad, and the incredible hot!

 

THE GOOD
Season 8: Lil Kim, Paso Doble
This is a PERFECT example of how amazing Derek choreographs to his partners!  Lil Kim picked up on all the little details in the dance including the wrist flips and the leg kicks!  Her facial expressions were on point and her costume was very fitting! 

THE BAD
 Season 7: Kim Kardashian, Mambo
I think Mark said it best when he said “Kim just needs to come out of her shell and bring it” I do feel like a lot of people expected Kim to be this sexy dancer but it all reality she didn’t have the musicality!  She knew the steps but didn’t put any of her in them which makes for a boring performance. Lastly, Kim never did the moves 100% like Mark does all the time, so it was aesthetically pleasing to watch.

THE INCREDIBLE HOT
Louis Van Amstel always has amazing choreography!
