Dancing With The Stars Season 13 “Design A Dance” (Which Dancers Are You Voting For?)

For several Seasons now, Dancing With The Stars, has been holding a “Design a Dance” Contest. This is where fans can “craft” a dance routine for the show. ABC is asking everyone to vote on their favorite male and female professional dancers, as well as the type of dance (the “Paso Doble” has been chosen), the song, and the costume. If interested, fans can also submit a drawing of their “costumes”. For information on how you can participate and VOTE, go to the official site of Dancing With The Stars >>>>HERE. You can vote for your favorite dancers as many times as you wish. Voting ends for your favorite female and male professional dancers on Friday, Oct. 28th at 5PM PT. Do it now and make it a daily ritual if you want to see your favorite dancers picked. Promote it at Facebook and Twitter to remind everyone.

So, which male and female pros are you voting for? VOTE in our Polls below as well so we can get a feel for who might win the Design a Dance Contest. Thanks to PureDWTS reader Eavan for the Poll idea.

I’m voting for Peta for the female Pro. For male pro, I’ll be throwing votes to both Tristan and Val…and maybe some to Derek and Maks as well. In the PureDWTS Polls, I’m going to vote for Peta and Tristan.

Dancing With The Stars Season 13 Week 1 TV Ratings For Sept. 19-25th

Zap2It has released Nielsen’s official TV ratings for Sept. 19-25th. The season premiere of Dancing With The Stars Season 13 placed 5th which is down in ratings slightly. Same with the results show which placed 9th. Even more shocking though is how the X Factor placed in the bottom of the top 20. With all the new shows premiering and NFL football always pulling in big numbers, both shows had a lot to compete with. Even still, I thought X Factor would place in the Top 5 and be neck in neck with Dancing With The Stars. 8O More below…

Heidi’s Note: And the ratings are down 8% THIS week from last week. Well, it’s to be expected. DWTS is in Season 13 now and that is extraordinary for any TV show. The temptation will be to blame Chaz and/or Carson or a less than stellar cast, but let’s face it – season 13 and we’re still in the top 10?? That’s pretty awesome. It may be the new normal or maybe the show is going to reverse to having the higher rated season during the spring when Football is no longer an option. Who knows, maybe it is the producer tinkering and a less than exciting cast – but I’m going to go with the Season 13 theory. :-) About XF – Wow. Major disappointment for that group, unless it manages to rebound. I had a feeling that The Voice and the new Judges on AI would spell trouble for them. Simon’s way is the old way, I’m afraid.

Dancing With The Stars 13 Week 2 Interview Videos After The Result Show

On The Red Carpet has some great new interviews up with the couples after the Results show last night (with an exception to Maks and Hope). George Pennacchio gets to the heart of the matter again with them. Not only do we get their reactions to how the results show turned out, they give George and us an idea of next week’s dance and what their stories might be like.

First up, Ricki breathed a sigh of relief. Ricki and Derek take us through how they prepare mentally for a dance. Derek is inspired during this interview for the choreography next week. Ricki talks of a life experience which will be told in it which includes Derek.

Tony is super sad to see Val go. Chynna talks of what a powerful dancer he is. They talk of next week’s Rumba and she is hoping to bring a lot of “intense connection” and “romance”. Her husband gave his approval to “go for it” with Tony.

J.R. and Karina talk of their rituals before and after their dances. They say a prayer and she calls her parents afterwards. They say next week’s dance will be very emotional. It will have something to do with the Military and what happened to J.R. in Iraq. It’s not only about himself, but, others. The song will be beautiful.

DWTS Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy Week 2 Elimination Interview Videos

And so we say Good-bye to Val and Elisabetta. When you are a “Chmerkovskiy” fan like myself, this is not easy. :( 8O But, I have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ll see of Val!! I hope the producers are listening when many of us say, “PLEASE BRING VAL BACK NEXT SEASON!” With that said, here is Val and Elisabetta interviewed by Jimmy Kimmel, Access Hollywood, and On The Red Carpet. Val, talks of what a beautiful experience he had with Elisabetta (he’s such a “gentleman”) and how he will miss her. Elisabetta said it was a true gift to be on Dancing With The Stars and much more. Stay tuned for their Good Morning America interview to be added to this post shortly.
