Dancing with the Stars Season 16, Week 3 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

The dreaded Prom Night. Almost a guarantee of SUPER CHEESE and probable stupidity. Complete with Prom King and Queen – which translates to another win for Zendaya, since it’s apparently based on Twitter votes. I guess all we can hope for is that it lulls her fans into not voting. Because nothing pisses me off more than pimpage. Here’s what ABC.com has to say:

You can help select the King and Queen of the night by using Twitter. Here’s how:

Just Tweet hash tag “prom” followed by the first name of the male star or female star of your choice. Don’t forget to select your favorite King and Queen. Twitter selection for our King and Queen will be open until Tuesday morning at 11 AM ET/8 AM PT. The hashtag should read #prom and then the first name of the celebrity. For example #promandy #promwynonna

The male and female Stars who each receive the most number of tweets will be named Prom King and Queen for the night and each be awarded two extra points for the night.

DWTS TPTB: “Yeah…our main demo for DWTS is older women….and they suck, so lets try to get more young ‘uns to watch by having them vote on twitter for Prom Queen and King. Okay, so it didn’t really work so well last week as we still got hammered by The Voice, but hey! It could work…eventually. Yeah, we know it means that Zendaya will win everything, cuz old ladies don’t tweet, and that could skew the voting…but we don’t actually CARE about that. So what if we alienate the old ladies who watch our show…we’re just sure the key demo will come to us…eventually. And they’re way more important.”

:::rolls eyes::: I’m getting sick of this crap and it’s only week 3. Seriously – two extra points? What stupid gimmick are they going to come up with next week?? Are they really this desperate??

Clearly, the answer is yes.

ETA: What kind of prom has a couple dancing to “Sex Machine”??  I’m also GUESSING that Ingo is dancing to Queen, since that sounds like a Paso song to me. Anyway, I’ve put the dances in the order that I think they’ll be dance

ETA2: Nailed it on Lisa and gleb :-)

ETA3: Two for two!!:-)

ETA4: Off by one spot for DL and Cheryl. All good rolls come to an end. :-)

ETA5: Well, I was doing so well with my predictions. Off on Victor by 2 sports. Oh well. :-)

ETA6: Ugh. Waste of a perfectly good “pimp” spot…although I wager it’s as close to the original meaning as it’s ever going to get. :-) Maybe the “family” needs some help, eh?

ETA7: Well, I get home late from work and see there is some confusion as to who is going last. Since Zendaya said “last” and Peta said 11th, I’m betting they shuffled the order based on the dress rehearsal and Zendaya’s order is current. Who knows?? Kellie is going at the top of the hour, which is good. Zendaya going last makes more sense than Sean.

This is also from ABC.com:

Here are some the songs you’ll hear Monday night – were any of them played at your prom?

“Do You Think I’m Sexy” – by Rod Stewart
“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins
“Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen
“Y.M.C.A” by the Village People

Am I correct in thinking that, with the only Jive on the roster, Kellie and Derek have Footloose?? Derek should be a little familiar with that particular song. :-)

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. :-)

DWTS16 Gleb Savchenko And Lisa Vanderpump Under Lock-And Key Before Showtime Week 3

Lisa Vanderpump was a guest on KITV. She answered questions about Jiggy, the Real Housewives, and Dancing With The Stars. About dancing, she talked about being at risk last week of elimination. She encourages all of her fans to vote this coming week if they want to see her stay. She was sad about seeing Dorothy leave last week, but, is so glad to know her and all of the cast. She’s met amazing new friends. Lots more at the link!!

There is also a fun article at People.com on she and Gleb. Here is a little take….

…the 29-year old newbie already has a slew of tactics to keep himself from being swallowed up by his dance partner.

“I actually took my shirt off on the very first rehearsal to be like, ‘Okay girl, we gotta work it! If you want to be in this rehearsal, maybe I can drag you in by taking off my shirt,’ ” Savchenko tells PEOPLE of working with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star (and PEOPLE.com blogger). “And she was like, ‘I like that! Okay, let’s go.’ ”

With results like that the fresh-faced pro decided to stick with what was working – mostly.

“Every day I still do that,” Savchenko says while attending the Los Angeles premiere of G.I. Joe: Retaliation. “I promise her but I actually don’t take off my shirt, and as soon as she’s in there I lock the door and say, ‘You’re going to stay here and we’re going to concentrate on hard work.’ ”

Once he had Vanderpump under lock-and-key, Savchenko thought using laughter might soften the physical toll of the practices.

“She’s got a great sense of humor, and everything that I tell her she makes a joke out of it,” the Moscow native says. “We laugh all of the time, like probably the entire first week, and that’s probably why we had very bad scores, because we laugh throughout the whole rehearsal.”

Much luck to these two Monday night!

DWTS16 Week 3 Cheryl Burke And D.L. Hughley To Dance A Salsa To James Brown “Sex Machine”, Wardrobe Hints

CherylD.L.

The Tom Joyner Morning Show in Charlotte, North Carolina interviewed D.L. Hughley about his up coming schedule of comic shows. They also talk of Dancing With The Stars. Let’s just say, D.L. was ready and packed to go home last week, but, he’s been working hard as he wants people to know that dancing matters to him. They’ve been rehearsing every day for 5 hours. He and Cheryl will be dancing a Salsa to James Brown’s “Sex Machine” Sex Machine - Sex Machine - Greatest Soul Lovesongs on Monday night. He says his wardrobe will remind us of “James Brown”. Fun interview. I especially love the part where he laughs when they say he might still be dancing on May 21st when he has a scheduled gig. You can listen to more here. I admit…I am starting to like D.L. more and more and this new routine has the makings of being a hoot?

Pic above courtesy of D.L.’s twitter posted March 22nd. ADDING: And here is a picture from today from Cheryl’s twitter….

UPDATE: To read Cheryl’s new blog, visit People.com. She’s sets us up for tonight’s Samba and more in this take…

It’s pretty amazing to think how many people support us. They’ve seen us struggle and get frustrated a little bit. They saw how D.L. felt embarrassed on national television and then he redeemed himself. That’s what this show is all about. I think in the beginning, D.L. didn’t know what he was getting into and now he’s really into it.

I feel better because I know now that he knows what to expect. He’s going to try his best. He’s not going to be the best dancer. We know that. But as long as he gives me his best and tried hard, that’s all that matters. We now know how to communicate with each other. I think on top of that, he knows he needs to work hard in order to stay in the competition.

Tonight is our prom-themed dance. We’re doing a salsa and it’s a song that everyone will know. D.L. was a pimp back in his day. People would pay him to go to prom. He’s been to more than five of them. If a girl couldn’t find a date, he would be that guy they would call.

This week, we really just want to play it up like we’re having a great time. I want him to just have fun out there. The choreography is fun. I want him to play this character. We want to bring out his personality.
