Pure DWTS 12 – Rapping, Ranking, Grading, and a Poll On The Dancing With The Stars Judges

Tom Bergeron posted this new video at his twitter of Carrie Ann, Len, and Bruno during their best judging moments of Season 12 to a rap song. I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry watching this? 8O But, it inspired a new Poll and ranking question which you can view and partake in below and in the comments if interested.

Lastly, if you were to rank Carrie Ann, Len, and Bruno on how well they judged Season 12, how would you rank them in order? You can also “grade” them if you like.

My favorite judge is Len. I love his grumpiness. I also respect how he tries to stick to the traditional rules of ballroom dancing. I think his role as a judge on the show is the most important for this reason.

In ranking and grading the judges this Season, I’d do so like this. (Note: I took a grading point off for how they tried to manipulate and take away our rights to vote at the end even though I suspect producers were involved too.);

1. Len – Grade: B-
2. Carrie Ann – Grade: C
3. Bruno – Grade: C- (I’ve loved him and his dramatic style in the past and sometimes he describes just what I’m feeling after a dance. I can’t imagine the show without him. But, he goes too far in his criticisms when he demeans the contestants!)

I look forward to all of your thoughts! ;)

DWTS 12 – Brooke Burke Talks On The Dancing With The Stars Finals (Video)

KTLA interviewed Brooke after the Season Finale. She talks of how this Season had one the “nicest” casts they’ve ever had. The interviewers ask Brooke if they think Chelsea and Mark were robbed of the Mirror Ball. Brooke says it’s not fair to ask that because Hines had “rhythm” and related well to the audience. She was the most surprised at Kirstie’s success on the show, but, could see why she made it the finals on personality alone and women across America loved her. All this and more as Brooke promotes “Suave” as well.

DWTS Cast 13 Rumors – Is Melissa Gilbert Doing Dancing With The Stars Next Season?

The upcoming June 6th edition of the National Enquirer is reporting that Melissa Gilbert (“Little House On The Prairie” fame) is going to dance on the next season of Dancing With The Stars. Read this schedule of National Enquirer stories to come from Ocdeffluvia;

2011 — June 6 — Arnold Schwarzenegger’s $500 Million Divorce, Jim Carrey’s daughter wants her mom and dad back together, Oprah’s neighbors don’t like her, Kirstie Alley wants to open a dance studio, Melissa Gilbert to be on Dancing with the Stars, Chaz Bono to marry girlfriend, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in couples therapy, John Rich of Celebrity Apprentice rude to fans, Lauren Alaina of American Idol to help tornado victims in her hometown, John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan to wed in July,….

Edit to Add: Here is take from the National Enquirer. Be sure to read the link for the full article.

“After so much pain and heartache recently, it’s nice to see Melissa with something to smile about,” said an insider. “Her upcoming appearance is giving her something to look forward to after her split from her husband.

Melissa and her husband of 16 years, “Scarecrow and Mrs. King” star Bruce Boxleitner, separated on March 1. The couple continued to live together for a while and attempted to reconcile, but Bruce finally moved out when the couple realized their relationship was not going to work.

Melissa was also deeply disappointed when she lost out on a role in the new version of the nighttime soap “Dallas.” Producers chose “Desperate Housewives” star Brenda Strong instead.

Adding to her woes, Melissa came down with a severe bout of colitis – inflammation of the colon – after undergoing a colonoscopy recently.

“Melissa has had one bad break after another,” added the source. “It’s nice to see her luck is changing by landing on ‘Dancing with the Stars. ’

I remember Melissa’s name coming up a lot in many fans wish lists last Season. I’ve also seen her sitting in the audience either this Season or last, can’t remember which? Though I think it was this past season. After doing some digging on twitter, I found she tweets regularly to Kirstie Alley and she was a fan this Season.

@ you are my hero. That freestyle was moving beyond words. You are The bravest and most beautiful woman inside & out.I adore u

So, what do you think of this possibility? I’d love it. I’ve always liked Melissa. Even though the National Enquirer is not reliable (then again, tabloids seem to nail it too sometimes), I wouldn’t be surprised if Melissa isn’t a serious contender to do the show next Season?

Heidi’s Note: If true, I would peg her as a likely winner, based on her history on Little House – depending on who else is on this coming season, of course.

John’s Update: Melissa posted the following 2 tweets where she says the rumors are exaggerated and that they’re not casting yet, but that she’d answer her phone if they did call. Exaggerated doesn’t mean that the base story isn’t true. Although, it is early for them to have a final cast. Lots of negotiating and contract signing to happen before anyone is officially in season 13′s DWTS cast. Melissa’s smart to deny anything. DWTS doesn’t like leaks. Here are her tweets:


All rumors of me doing next DWTS are highly exaggerated. The National Enquirer has got it wrong again.though I am flattered by the responses

I assure you, they are not casting yet and no one has called me. That said, if they did, I’d answer the phone

Dancing With The Stars 2011 – Cheryl Burke and Maksim Chmerkovskiy Attend ‘The Love Festival’ In Las Vegas

If you’ve been following their twitter accounts, Maks, Cheryl, and Tony are currently in Las Vegas to help the cast of “LeReve” get ready for their shows at the Wynn. Saturday night, Maks and Cheryl were seen together with Jenny McCarthy at the Moon Nightclub inside the Palms Casino Resort for “The Love Festival”. Below is a picture of Cheryl and Maks who are said to have looked “cozy”. More at Vegas News.

I always thought these two looked striking together. I don’t think there is anything going on like the link hints at, but, the two have always been really good friends.
