Derek Hough Talks DWTS, Shawn Johnson and Photography

I think this was meant to be mainly a plug for Derek’s involvement in a Nikon campaign,

Derek recently teamed up with Nikon to be part of the company’s “Small Moments Are Huge” Facebook campaign, and has been using his Nikon 1 camera to capture daily life at home and on the job. See his photos on Facebook HERE.

But of course ET Online got him talking about DWTS and Shawn.  Sooooo….brother/sister but he wants to get some “tension” involved. :-)  Since he follows with the fact that she’s grown up and 20 years old, I think he’s talking sexual tension. Walk a fine line, Derek, walk a fine line. :-)

Those blue eyes!! Amazing.

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. :-)

Dmitry Chaplin Choreographing for So You Think You Can Dance Finale

I debated even reporting on this, given that I am done with SYTYCD now that it has become a bona fide popularity contest and that least skilled dancer this season is probably going to win (and just as I feared, both ballroom girls were cut back-to-back just before the finale), but alas, it’s not Dmitry’s fault and he is part of the DWTS family – so here it is.  :-)

Dmitry tweeted that he is going to be choreographing for the upcoming performance finale next Tuesday:

Also choreographing on SYTYCD for next week and stressing about it lol. So please wish me luck!

Dmitry Chaplin

Can’t blame Dmitry for being nervous – seems like the ballroom routines this season have had about a 50/50 chance of getting ripped apart by the judges…so much for debunking the blatant anti-ballroom bias on that show.  Dmitry may also be having flashbacks to last season, when Nigel picked apart the cha-cha Mark choreographed for the performance finale. Let’s hope Nigel isn’t looking forward to a repeat “My show is better than DWTS!” pro-roast this time around…

Anywho, I found this little interesting Dmitry ditty while nosing around YouTube – it’s Dmitry talking about the cha-cha he choreographed for Cole & Anya a few weeks ago, and I think he pretty much hits the nail on the head when talking about non-ballroomers trying to learn ballroom:

Anywho, everybody cross your fingers for Dmitry that he doesn’t become the next victim of Nigel the Ballroom Meatgrinder next week.  I just find it funny that he seems to think his show has so much more street cred than DWTS, due to the many dance styles they portray and all the Emmy nominations they amass – yet his show has turned into a complete popularity contest, while DWTS at least maintains some degree of integrity by making the results 50% scores and 50% votes. Enjoy those Emmy noms, Nigel – because with your ratings hitting an all-time low this summer, this may be your last hurrah.

DWTS Kym Johnson Says Everyone Is Going To Be Incredible, Hopes To Beat Apolo Ohno

At the premiere of “The Words” in Hollywood, People caught up with Kym Johnson and asked her about the new season of Dancing With The Stars. She remarks how she and partner Joey Fatone want to beat Apolo Ohno the most being he beat them in Season 4. She also said everyone is going to be incredible. Below is more and be sure you read the full article at People.

“Everyone is going to be incredible,” says the Australian dancer. “It could be anyone’s [to win] and anyone could go home first. It’s going to be an unpredictable season.”

However, Johnson isn’t letting the fierce competition get to her. For now, she’s just focused on making it to the second night of competition.

“It’s going to be an intense season, but we’re definitely enjoying it,” said the Dancing pro. “We just don’t want to get kicked off first, and then we’ll take it week by week.”

Kym also chatted with On The Red Carpet. She loves having Joey again. She says everyone is having a ball at rehearsals so far, but, the pressure is more intense since everyone has danced before. Who’s rooting for Joey and Kym?
