DWTS 16, Week 3 – Power Rankings

Well…that was special.  Aside from a few bright spots, I don’t know that I could have choreographed a sh*tshow that was sh*ttier than tonight’s show – yeah, it was pretty bad.  I guess I expected it to be pretty tacky, given the whole prom theme…but there were some all-time lows hit tonight.  And there was some definite tinkering going on with the scoring – scoring that makes me think they’re trying to backdoor some floundering couples.  But let’s right to it, shall we?

1.) Jacoby & Karina – I still stand by my week 1 claim that Jacoby is a shoo-in for the finale and will likely play spoiler to whoever else ends up there and will pull out a win.  And tonight really solidified that for me – because this guy can DANCE.  Sure, he’s a little cocky, a lot kooky, and can handle the goofy, uptempo dances like the cha-cha and jazz…but the true test was him tackling the rumba tonight, and that he did.  He actually let down his guard quite a bit and showed us a vulnerable side – I thought their rumba was quite lovely, and Jacoby had some great extensions and footwork going on.  A few footwork issues, sure, but overall, he & Karina really sold it for me, chemistry-wise.  And here’s the big advantage he may have over Kellie & Zendaya: he’s got a bit more of a learning curve to work with.  While Kellie & Zendaya are both great dancers, I’m beginning to think that viewers (and their increasingly unpredictable voting behavior) may tire of them topping the leaderboard week after week…and while Jacoby is still up there pretty close, he may get a bit more leeway because he’s more unexpected – it’s a bigger shock that Jacoby’s legitimately good, than it is for Kellie or Zendaya.  Who knows…I never really know what to think about the voting from week to week.  But I do know he’s safe for quite awhile.

2.) Kellie & Derek – Did one of you mention that Kellie was sick this week? If so, I will cut her a bit of slack on what I thought was a good (but not great) performance, and applaud her for soldiering through.  I think this had the potential to be a fantastic routine – they got a great song and a great theme to work with, and this stuff is right in Derek’s wheelhouse.  Very fun jive (without copying any moves from the movie, mind you), and Kellie kept up pretty well for the first half – but then I think she got tired and lost steam, and suddenly she wasn’t bouncing quite as much and her kicks got a bit soft.  But it was still a great performance, and I sincerely doubt she’s in any danger this week…but I am crossing my fingers that she can somehow pull off getting prom queen J Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 16: Week 3 Score Predictions

You know if it weren’t for that darn Contemporary dance that Victor / Lindsay are dancing I would actually have had I would have proper rankings this time around… but as it stands we are probably going to be stuck with average scores from here on out.

Ah well…

If I have time after work today I’ll add more to the list… but really, what’s there to say?

Oh… and if you are curious about how the calculated predictions panned out on Week 1 and Week 2…

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

Louis Van Amstel’s Thoughts And Predictions Before Showtime DWTS 16 Week 3

Hollywood.com has posted Louis Van Amstel’s thoughts for who he is the most worried about and who he thinks will be ok tonight on Dancing With The Stars Week 3. It sounds like he is the most worried for D.L. Hughley and Wynonna and yet, there is hope. He predicts Zendaya, Kellie Pickler, and Jacoby Jones will come out on top. Andy Dick may not have as much dance ability, but, he has the “performance” factor (Loves this about Andy too!! He has the performance factor in spades!). More below and at the link….

As for Andy Dick, van Amstel thinks he’s got nothing to worry about despite his less-than-perfect dancing ability. “Andy is not going home,” van Amstel says. “From the package point of view, from costuming, staging, production value, dance content, music, they had the best performance. I’m not talking his dance ability, because Zendaya, Kellie [Pickler], and Jacoby Jones are way better dancers but with the package, the comedy played up to his strengths. I thought it was the best package as a whole of the night, and I did not see that coming.”

The top three dancers of the night according to van Amstel are still the same as Week 1: Zendaya, Pickler, and Jones. “Kellie won the night, by far. But having said that, Zendaya had to perform and dance in heels and had to learn proper jive. That is harder,” van Amstel says. “So to me, the girls are in the top three. And do not rule out Jacoby Jones. The guy was amazing, and he is not a dancer. He is a football player. In the packages, that’s where Jacoby Jones shines. His personality is contagious.”

Aly Raisman And Mark Ballas Have a Surprise Planned For Viennese Waltz On Dancing With The Stars

Aly Raisman tells TV Guide that she and partner Mark Ballas have a surprise in store for everyone on Dancing With The Stars tonight when they dance their Viennese waltz and it won’t be cheesy. They hope everyone is going to like it. She also talks of what her dress will be like which sounds really pretty. Here is more….

How’s the Viennese waltz going?
Aly Raisman: It’s good. We have a shorter time to learn the dance now and I came home [to Boston] this week for my sister’s Bat Mitzvah … but it’s going well. I’m really excited about it. I’m glad it’s a slower dance and not the quickstep or jive or something fast with lots of steps. I love the song we have and the story we’re telling.

What’s the story? Is Mark asking you to prom?
Raisman: He’s not. [Laughs] It’s a really cool surprise. I can’t really say more than that. It’s not a clichéd, cheesy thing at all. I like it a lot. I hope people understand it and like it. It’s mature, so hopefully I’ll be able to pull it off.

What’s your prom dress?
Raisman: It’s a lilac purple and goes down to the floor. It’s chiffon and really elegant, but it’s kind of like a prom dress too.

How does that compare to your real prom dress?
Raisman: My prom dress was chocolate brown with a not-very-low V-neck. It had cap sleeves with beading and crystals on them.

More at TV Guide including Aly’s thoughts on Dorothy Hamill, her challenges, and the competition.

Jacoby Jones And Karina Smirnoff To Act Out Falling In Love For DWTS Rumba Week 3

And below is Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff in a new rehearsal interview with ET Online. They are asked about the Rumba tonight which is about “falling in love”. Jacoby said it wasn’t hard to act out “falling in love” Karina. Being it’s Prom week, they will be taking us back to what Jacoby was like in highschool. Did you know he was only 5’7″ at the time? It’s hard to picture. They also talk of how hard it was to lose Dorothy Hamill on the show last week and how important it is to care of injuries. At the end they do some funny impressions of each other.
