DWTS All Stars, Week 9 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

This seems destined to be a weird week all the way around. :-)

Only thing I’m going to say right now about the songs is that some people are going to be happy and some are not. How’s that for vague?? :-) I will say that Kelly got EXTREMELY lucky – let’s just see which way they go with the choreo and if the judges subsequently call them out like Courtney and I suspect they SHOULD (but probably won’t).

I think the only one of these dances likely to be a surprise – because it hasn’t been spoiled by the couple – is Shawn and Derek doing the Argentine Tango. I also don’t think that Kelly and Val have mentioned Rumba, but we’re fairly sure that’s what they have.

ETA: Yes, Kelly may as well be doing another Paso, going by her music (and since Warren and Kym used it as a Paso on the show before). Courtney and I predict that Val takes the easy out, goes mostly Paso and doesn’t get called on it. And they get a 30. :-) Any takers???

ETA2: So, Emmitt’s song seems rather obvious, doesn’t it? :-) It’s a shame he’s apparently struggling with the choreography in what is otherwise a “cute” dance. ;-)  And YES, we know his Lindy song was Donny’s Jive song. Also struggling, from what I hear, is Kelly – who’s dance, as suspected, doesn’t look very “surfer” at all. She’s apparently having trouble with the timing and looks “frantic”.  In other news, Melissa is doing great with the AT – as we also suspected that she would. :-)

ETA3: I’m having trouble seeing a Jazz dance for Apolo’s song – it will require a lot of creativity from Karina. It does sound circus-y. I included a youtube link because I had trouble with the iTunes link at first…and then when I saw the video I decided to leave it. :-)  From where I”m sitting, Melissa got EXTREMELY lucky. If they hadn’t picked the second dances live I would suspect foul play. Now, can Tony capitalize on that extraordinary luck?? Sounds like he’s done well with the AT, but there are TWO dances.

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. :-)

Mark Ballas Talks About Dancing With The Stars And His New Music With Timbaland (Video)

Mark Ballas was on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show today. They chat about this season of “Dancing with the Stars”, Mark’s new music with Timbaland, and what to expect of his new album. Here is what he said about working with Derek and Shawn last week;

When Derek got injured a few weeks Mark was called to step in. “I feel like I’ve done more work since I’ve been kicked off than when I was on,” he says. So, who takes creative control Derek or Mark? “We kind of do that together. He was in there, he was wanting to move around. Me and Shawn [Johnson] we just kind of wanted him to relax and take time to really heal. We actually ended up tying him to the chair with big rubber bands. He was tied to the chair for about an hour and a half. But it was really good, Derek and I have grown up together since we were 9 and 10-years old. My parents trained us both. So it’s really easy for me and him to be creative together. It worked really well and I danced with Shawn in season 8, so it was already kind of natural, we kind of picked up where we left off.”

Thanks to Lori for the heads up on this news!! Wow Timbaland. Mark’s working with the best now!
