Time Set For Dancing With The Stars All Star Cast Announcement

Special Note! As previously reported, the new cast for the Dancing With The Stars All Star Season will be announced on Friday, July 27th at the ABC Summer Press Tour. ABC MediaNet has set up an exclusive page at their site for the proceedings. The Dancing With The Stars announcement will take place at 10:45am Pacific time. Be sure to take the day off from work if you can. ;) :D

UPDATE: Be sure to watch this LINK too at the official Dancing With The Stars site for where they are encouraging fans to watch for the Dancing With The Stars All Star Cast Announcement with “with the new celebrity contestants” at 10:30am Pacific time on July 27th. Also, note how they are describing this season as the “biggest” ever. Thanks to Maddy and NYC Girl for this news!!

UPDATE #2: So, it’s 4 days before the cast announcement. Tom Bergeron just tweeted that they will be announcing all but one cast member. There is much speculation that this could mean that fans will vote on the un-announceed celebrity. When we find out more, we’ll be sure to let you know.


Looking forward to Friday’s DWTS All-Star Cast announcement. We’ll be announcing all but one, then YOU have to get to work! #DWTS

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Dancing With The Stars Cheryl Burke Attends “Jockey for a Cause” Charity Event

Pictured above is Cheryl Burke and NHL player Joffrey Lupul. Wednesday the two made an appearance at the “Jockey for a Cause” event in Rancho Santa Fe, California. The charity event, held at the DeHaven Estate, raised money for jockeys injured while competing. You can read more at E News. More pics at Getty Images. Wow, Cheryl has never looked more stunning! What do you think? Is this dress a hit in your opinion?

Dancing with the Stars 2012 Emmy Nominations!!

And the nominees are….

OUTSTANDING HOST

TOM BERGERON
Cat Deely
Phil Keogan
Ryan Seacrest
Betty White

Jeff Probst not nominated and he usually wins. I would say Tom or Cat were a shoe in, if not for Betty White.

OUTSTANDING REALITY PROGRAM

DANCING WITH THE STARS
So You Think You can Dance
The Amazing Race
Top Chef
Project Runway
The Voice

TAR wins this one every season.

OUTSTANDING CHOREOGRAPHY

Travis Wall, Without You (DWTS)
Stacey Tookey, SYTYCD
Christopher Scott, SYTYCD
Spencer Liff, SYTYCD
Joshua Bergnasse, Smash

I don’t know whether to rant about this now or save it for later. I KNEW when they had Travis on DWTS that our choreographers were going to get shut out of this category. I predicted it back when the show was on this last season. Let’s just say I’m pissed off at this nomination and I’m pissed off at this category – it is unbelievably slanted toward anything that is not ballroom. They didn’t even list the nomination ballots on the website like they did for everything else. I spent a long time looking for it.

OUTSTANDING HAIR STYLING FOR A MULTI CAMERA SERIES OR SPECIAL

DWTS for episode 1407 (season 14, week 7)

OUTSTANDING LIGHTING DESIGN FOR A VARIETY SERIES

DWTS for Episode 1307

OUTSTANDING MAKE UP FOR A MULTI CAMERA SERIES

DWTS for Episode 1307

OUTSTANDING TECHNICAL DIRECTION, CAMERAWORK, VIDEO CONTROL FOR A SERIES

DWTS for Episode 1410A

That one makes me chuckle a bit, considering how often Courtney and I put camera gaffes in our Cheesecake Awards. :-D

That was all the nominations I saw – now Vogue will go behind me and make sure I didn’t leave anything or anyone out. And look at the Choreo again, would ya?? I think it drove me temporarily insane and I might have missed something. :-)

UPDATE: Vogue here with some Emmy nomination reactions from Tom Bergeron, Travis Wall, and the Dancing With The Stars Make-Up Team….

Tom tweeted, “Probst will still find a way to win this thing!” He’s a crack up as always.

From ET, Travis Wall said, “I can’t believe that our dance company’s (Shaping Sound) first performance on TV got an Emmy nomination. I am elated! It’s amazing to have a nomination two years in a row but it’s surreal to have this nomination with my best friends!”

Also, from the Dancing With The Stasrs Make-up Team at facebook, they wrote: “Great news today! The Dancing with the Stars Makeup Team has been nominated for an Emmy Award!!! We hope to bring it home for a 2nd time. Please wish us luck!!!”

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. :-)
