Dancing with the Stars Season 12, Week 4 – Power Rankings

Filling in for Courtney gives me a migraine and makes me want to drink copious…oh, wait, I am drinking copious amounts. :-) :::sigh::: The judging does drive me to drink, but I’m not truly capable of copious amounts. Wishful thinking. It’s very hard for me to separate what I understand of the math for my Numbers post from this post.

I get why some were calling it movie night now. :-) TWO songs from Harry Potter (one inappropriate for a Paso), one from Romeo and Juliette, one from the Nutcracker and so on. Loved the orchestra and loved most of the music very much even if it might not have been good for a particular dance. Some of you music people help me out here – Harry Potter music is beautiful and mostly very orchestral – but when I think Classical, I think…well, Classical. Beethoven, etc. They had a bit of Carmen and a bit of the William Tell Overture in there, if I am remembering correctly – but Harry Potter?

It was also another wacky night from a scoring perspective, when nearly every dance had feet off the floor but only Romeo gets called for it and when it sure appears that they are targeting Kendra for elimination. Very heavy handed, although I do sort of agree that she is next to go. The inexplicable high scoring for Petra continues and it actually makes me a tad concerned for her longevity on the show. Anyway, on with the show.

1) Hines and Kym – This, for me, was the dance of the night and I hereby declare Hines the winner of Season 12. :-) I don’t see anyone other than maybe Ralph catching him – they’ll have a charm off. :-) Kym Johnson can choreograph a great Paso, maybe second only to Derek. It was entertaining, it was sharp, it was clean – everything I need. Throw in the Steeler Nation and a good score? Numero Uno. Unfortunately, the judges raved and then cramped up with it came to dealing the appropriate paddles. Undercored by two points, IMO. I’m not quite sure what the judges are thinking. This will be a recurring theme. :-) Crack is whack.

2) Ralph and Karina – What a beautifully choreographed and executed dance!! Props to Karina for incorporating the Romeo and Juliette theme so well. Improved from last week, he mostly lost the weird hands. I just love this guy, he’s so charming. I can’t help but think that lots and lots of people love him, mainly because I love him so much. I also tend to freakishly represent the mainstream in these sorts of things, much to my chagrin. ;-) In terms of likely popularity and ability, Hines and Ralph are the guys to beat. But here’s where it gets tricky…

Three-way tie between Kirstie, Chelsea and Chris!! But I did still put them in a chronological order.

3) Chelsea and Mark – I honestly don’t know what to make of this dance. When it started I thought “Oh god, Mark’s gone over the top again and Len is going to crucify him” – and at the very beginning it would have been justified, but they quickly pulled it together and got a lot of V. Waltz content in there. But between the costuming and the Harry Potter Theme…well, I just don’t know what to make of it. I guess my jury is out on them – it kinda felt like a whole lotta Mark and some girl. The V. Waltz content was very well executed, but I must say – if I’m having this much trouble connecting to them, who else is?? I just don’t get the same jazzed feeling from watching them as I do from watching Hines and Ralph and, to a much lesser extent this week, Kirstie.

3) Kirstie and Maks - Are these two cursed or is it just me?? Kirstie is wrong if she thinks she’s the only one to lose a shoe – Lance lost one in the middle of a dance and Derek did most of a…Tango?…with his shoe half off. So it happens, but she covered it reasonably well. But damn, I felt sorry for her. The two of them can’t catch a break recently – but I think that will help them with the voters. I also think there is something to be said for having a partner who is acting charming as hell. Who the heck is this version of Maks and can we keep him?? Because if Derek doesn’t come back, this is the guy who I will be watching the show for! Hilarious and sweet. The two of them together are magic – even if Kirstie’s laryngitis is making her sound like a man. :-) Anyway, power rankings are about a whole combination of factors – likely votes, score, likeability etc. – so despite their troubles I put them in a 3-way tie for 3rd place. Heck, because of their troubles I put them there.

3) Chris and Cheryl - Chris Jericho is another one that I just love – there is something about his personality that is just so engaging and charming. I also think this couple is one of the few that got the right score tonight. It was a really good Paso, but it wasn’t as crisp and sharp as it could have been, but very entertaining. I have a feeling he is scoring with the audience as well. Such a cutie.

6) Petra and Dmitry - Overscored yet again. I don’t get it. She’s a lovely, wonderful woman, but that was stiff and a bit wobbly. Not horrible, but not nearly worthy of a 23. Romeo’s dance was better, as was Chris’. I believe her feet also came off the ground at one point but CAI is only calling lifts on Romeo tonight. Petra is a wonderful, charming girl, but I can only think she isn’t getting the votes. I think part of the issue here is her doing better than the judges expected – Len said as much. But doing better than expected shouldn’t put you ahead of better dancers in scores. And interesting that he castigates Romeo for removing his shirt, but Dmitry does this stupid, awkward move of removing Petra’s skirt and no one says a word. That was less fitting to the dance and Romeo’s shirt/jacket!!

7) Romeo and Chelsie - Romeo and Chelsie did a fantastic job on this dance. I agree with Len that Romeo needs a bit of refinement but he has the performance down and he looked good. I wager he spent some time on YouTube watching other Paso Dobles done on the show – I would guess Maks and Derek’s, to be specific. Of course, it could be that they were dancing to Derek and Brooke’s Paso music that put Derek at the front of my brain. :-) Or it could be that ending jump which Derek used in his Paso with Jennifer. In any case, I hope he sticks around because I think he has serious potential – the problem is he might be getting lost in the shuffle. Maybe Chelsie needs to start breaking more rules and being crazy, like her buddy Mark. :-)

8 ) Ray and Anna - Crazy technique, but I have to agree with the judges – what an entertaining sweetheart! A little too much posing for my taste, but they did disguise it with charm. I am also biased because I just adore all the music from The Nutcracker. Reminds me of when I was little and my mom would take me to the ballet every Christmas. In any case, I adore Sugar Ray and I hope and think he dodged a bullet this week, mainly because the judges seem to have targeted Kendra for elimination this week.

9) Kendra and Louis – Boy oh boy – a friend of mine on Twitter (Hi Dona) commented that Kendra looked like she was being tortured while dancing and that was exactly what I was trying to verbalize but couldn’t find a way. Not that she did badly – just that she just had this look and feel to the dance that was painful. Then Carrie Ann also nailed it when she said Kendra is afraid of the elegance and is holding herself back. Exactly. Add in a slight mess up and awkward turns, plus the low score? I dunno. Not good. I think part of the issue is not that she’s a bad dancer – she’s not – but that it’s difficult to watch her being uncomfortable. She’s probably technically better than Ray, but where Ray is charming she’s just awkward. She also needs to stop talking when the judges are talking – that’s just off putting and I doubt I am the only one with that issue. If she makes it through, she really needs to just let go.

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 Stats Class – Week 4

Classical Week! With a full orchestra… and that gawdy staircase out of the way. What dances will our stars have to tackle for the week?

Ralph and Karina – Waltz
- Age [40s]: 21
- Occupation [Actor]: 27.25
- Pro Partner: 23.333
Predicted Score: 23
Thoughts: Is it just me or is Ralph “struggling” with the Latin dances as opposed to the Ballroom dance (Foxtrot). I’m looking for him to make his “come back” with the Waltz.

Kirstie and Maks – Waltz
- Age [60s]: 22
- Occupation [Actress]: 22.833
- Pro Partner: 25.4
Predicted Score: 23
Thoughts: Kirstie, to me, seems to do much better in the Latin dances than the Ballroom dance (Quickstep)… then again the Quickstep required a lot of energy, a lot of which Kirstie did not have towards the end. The Waltz is a bit more paced than the Quickstep, so this should work out more to her favor.

Romeo and Chelsie – Paso Doble
- Age [20s]: 27.7
- Occupation [Singer]: 22.75
- Pro Partner: N/A
Predicted Score: 25
Thoughts: Romeo needs to learn to be a man if he wants to dominate the Paso Doble. To me it seems like Romeo was just following Chelsie around like a little lap dog… ok… maybe not that extreme, but still. All kidding aside unless Romeo mans up… he may be next to bow out.

Chris and Cheryl – Paso Doble
- Age [40s]: 22.333
- Occupation [Athlete]: 27
- Pro Partner: 25.625
Predicted Score: 24
Thoughts: I LOVE LOVE LOVE Chris when he’s doing the ballroom dances, not so much with the Latin… With all the theoretical masculinity he has to throw around in the Wrestling ring… could he channel that into the Paso Doble?

Petra and Dmitry – Paso Doble
- Age [30s]: 25.406
- Occupation [Model]: 29
- Pro Partner: 30
Predicted Score: 28
Thoughts: oK… Dmitry hasn’t been on the show long enough for good data to be derived… same with models… so Petra is going to be breaking some boundaries here. Petra does well when it comes to slow sympatheic dances, but with something like the Paso Doble? I don’t know… I’m a bit skeptical

Hines and Kym – Paso Doble
- Age [30s]: 25.406
- Occupation [NFL]: 23
- Pro Partner: 23.333
Predicted Score: 23
Thoughts: Hines shines the most when he could infuse a bit of his personality into the dance. The Paso is a different animal and for some reason I just can’t see it happening… can you?

Chelsea and Mark – Viennese Waltz
- Age [20s]: 25.6
- Occupation [Disney]: 24.5
- Pro Partner: 21.5
Predicted Score: 23.867
Thoughts: So far Chelsea has been on a bit of an uphill climb… I’m thinking she’s going to peak too soon a la Sabrina Bryan… but who knows?

Sugar Ray & Anna – Viennese Waltz
- Age [50s]: 23
- Occupation [Boxer]: N/A
- Pro Partner: 23.333
Predicted Score: 23
Thoughts: Sugar Ray has been having problems with posture… as thus this is going to take some work for him to get up to form…

Kendra and Louis – Viennese Waltz
- Age [20s]: 25.6
- Occupation [Reality TV]: 21.5
- Pro Partner: 20.75
Predicted Score: 22
Thoughts: I don’t know about you guys, but I rather liked Kendra in the Quickstep… so I’m expecting her to do decently in the Viennese Waltz.

**NOTE: N/A – There is no prior data in this particular category

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

DWTS Season 12, Week 4 – Chelsea Kane And Mark Ballas Sizing Up The Competition

MTV interviewed Chelsea and Mark. Chelsea discusses “age” and how it’s not a factor again except for going out and having fun which they do more of (huh? I guess she hasn’t seen Kirstie and Maks out having a good time after the show. Kirstie could probably party her under the table if she wanted to). It sounds like they are the most worried about Ralph and Karina. But, they better be worried about everyone in my opinion. (Heidi: Um, hello? I challenge this chickie to a party-off. I swear…the ignorance of youth. Or is that arrogance?)

Edit to Add this quote from Chelsea’s blog today at People. More and a new picture at the link.

Three things I’ve learned this week:
1. Mark Ballas has toes of steel. I’ve stepped on every single one of them and he never flinches.
2. Mark Ballas has a chin of steel. I’ve head butted him twice now and he still hugs me at the end of rehearsal.
3. I have legs of steel. Literally, they are made out of solid, cold metal because they don’t bend or do anything graceful. Scratch that, they’re made of copper. Still stiff, just really golden.

Three things I wish I hadn’t learned this week:
1. The smell of Mark’s knee pads. It’s as if the NHL bottled the stench of their used uniforms and doused Mark’s knee pads with it. I know this because whenever I make a mistake with the choreography, Mark forces me to take a whiff as punishment.
2. Wood burns. That seems obvious if we’re talking about a forest fire, but I’m talking about when your body is being dragged across a dance floor at warp speed, it can take a layer of skin off.
3. There are not enough carbs in the world to satisfy me.

Three facts about the Viennese waltz:
1. It’s the oldest of the current ballroom dances.
2. There is a move in it called a “fleckerls,” which makes me laugh every time I hear it. Do you imagine a chubby kid with a lisp pointing at his sunspots, too?
3. It’s really easy to learn.

Dancing With The Stars 12 – Can Petra Nemcova Bring Out Her Passion In The Paso Doble? (Videos)

As always, Petra is so cute and her behavior is not any different in these new interviews. She and Dmitry are all smiles and joking, but, I have a feeling they are going to be all serious, powerful, and full of passion tonight for their Paso Doble. What do you think?

Pure DWTS Season 12 – Chelsie Hightower and Romeo Miller: “We are working our butts off!”

Chelsie Hightower talks with TV Guide about her and Romeo’s dance last week and his progress. She also dished with them a little on their upcoming Paso Doble tonight. It’s going to be interesting to see how he has responded to practicing to “Classical” music, hmmm?? :) More below and at the link.

How’s the paso doble coming along?
Hightower: It’s good. It’s definitely a more difficult dance, especially since we have classical music because there are so many intricacies with the classical music. But I think it’s going to pay off in the end.

Are you approaching the choreography any differently because it’s classical week?
Hightower: I wouldn’t say a different approach, per se. We’re taking the same approach, but it requires more work. It’s harder to find the balance between the paso moves, which are aggressive and in-your-face, and the music. On top of that, the stage is going to be different with the orchestra. It’s a challenge, but we’re both up for it. We’re definitely putting in a lot more hours this week.

The judges have harped on Romeo’s technique. What are you working on this week?
Hightower: His footwork and posture, especially for the paso — you need a really strong frame. And technique in general — he’s been called out for various things in the past few weeks, so we’re trying to improve upon that so that they can’t pick on us for that anymore! But at the same time, it’s a work in progress. It’s still the beginning of the competition. We still have weeks to grow and get stronger. But we’re definitely trying to deliver an awesome comeback dance this week. I think this could be it.

Last minute video addition from Hollywood Life. They also have a new little interview up at the link.;
