As we learned last night on Dancing With The Stars, ABC and BBC Productions are bringing a ‘one-of-a-kind’ Dancing With The Stars production exclusively to the New Tropicana Las Vegas. The live show is being directed by Amy Tinkham and choreographed by Australian sensation Jason Gilkison. The show will kick off a 12-week run beginning Saturday, April 14th. Below are some more details for who will be dancing…
Dancing with the Stars: Live in Las Vegas is an 80-minute live entertainment show that brings the excitement of the ABC smash hit series Dancing with the Stars to life. Set at the all New Tropicana Las Vegas, Dancing with the Stars: Live in Las Vegas transports the stars of the show to the stage for a night of sexy, stunning and surprising performances.

Sometimes it’s so hard to let some couples go and such is the case for many of us with Martina Navratilova and Tony Dovolani!! What I loved is that Martina showed the world she is still very much out there, but, she is a legendary figure of a different kind now. We were all blessed to see a vulnerable and humanitarian side of Martina taking on the challenge of learning how to dance all in the name of helping the elderly and showing them they/we can still do anything they/we want despite age, challenges, illness, and hardships. Because of this fact, Martina will always be a winner and a legend to me and her light and message for people will always shine bright. Thank you TPTB (in more ways than one!) for giving us Martina!!!
So, below is Martina and Tony on the Jimmy Kimmel show last night….
Here they are on Access Hollywood. Tony remarked he was hoping to show America a different side of Martina. Don’t worry, Tony! You DID just that!!
Below is an On The Red Carpet interview….
From ET, her cast mates have nothing but wonderful things to say on Martina….
Stay tuned, we will have some Good Morning America coverage shortly!
UPDATE: And below is their Good Morning America interview. Tony made Martina feel like she was Princess every day. So sweet!!! Tony has some thoughts on the couples….
…is the unkindest cut of all. I always put in a bit of blather here so we don’t spoil those on twitter – even though I’m a firm believe that if you don’t want to know the results, get off the damn computer.
Anyway, our first elimination is Martina and Tony
Our mini scorecard reads as follows:
Courtney: Called Martina going home, with a slight possibility of it being Gavin
Heidi: Called Martina going home with a possibility of Gavin
John: Called Martina going home.
They did a real bottom two tonight for the first time since they wanted David Arquette to stick around. Odd choice tonight, I think. What do they have invested in Gavin??
Ai Ai Ai!!! If you are an overly sensitive fan of any of the couples, this post isn’t for you. What a crap ass night of scoring – the dancing was just fine and many couples excelled…but the judges made a secret trip to Columbia before the season started. And dropped a good bit of coin.
And really, you can’t get Derek and Maria’s phone number right?? Jesus – then you fix it (or try to) during Martina and Tony’s skybox chat..and, if I’m not mistaken, never show their number?? I try REALLY REALLY hard not to buy into conspiracy theories – the simplest explanation always being the best and all that (the simplest explanation is that some of the people working on this show are MUPPETS) – but when you so obviously overscore Sherri and (to a lesser extent) Roshon and then just totally screw over Melissa and Jack what do you expect me to do?? I can’t even describe my thoughts on William and Cheryl without using language that John doesn’t approve of. I’ll just say…so William sticks his ass out and looks uncertain most of the time and he gets one of the higher scores of the night?? At least good old Len doesn’t have a vagina. I’m counting on him to keep it real where William is concerned. Now, if he would throw away the memo from the ABC brass that says “Score the family HIGH”, I would be so proud of him. Seriously, Martina would need well more than 22K votes more than William – they are VERY invested in protecting this guy.
Anyway, I could go on all day. Remember, the scores from last week and this week are added together for the couples total. The total number of points awarded is then divided into the couples total for their percentage of the judges scores. That counts for half of the couples total score. The other half is treated the same way – the total number of votes divided into the votes for a given couple. When you add the two percentages together, the couple with the lowest combined total goes home.
Let’s look at the couples and their percentages of the total:
The Judges Scores and Percentages
:::sigh::: It’s a great season and even the worst dancers are doing better than the best dancers in many other seasons…so why do the judges insist on playing crazy games?? Katherine did a great job, but in what universe does William get only one point less than her?? They weren’t even close. I don’t think William was even close to Maria. Roshon got the same score tonight as William – he is also not worthy of a point less than Katherine, but he was better than William by a good bit..and he’s such a little cutie. I didn’t think I would like him, but I really do! But he and Sherri’s status with ABC was really showing tonight. Melissa still has issues…but no way was she that much worse than Sherri who missed an entire pass. Who was appropriately scored, IMO?? Well, Gavin, Jaleel, Jack, Donald, Maria and Katherine – but when compared to how other couples were overscored (or in some cases underscored), I’m not so sure any more. Read more..
