DWTS Season 16, Week 5 – Who Got the Boot? (SPOILERS)

Fantastic opening number by Mark and Derek!! Very different…and pretty weird. Courtney and I think Emmy nomination. Provided that the outside choreographer (Stacey Tookey this time) doesn’t steal it again.

Did Selena think she was dancing?? Just asking. :-) Tom pimped Sean and Catherine’s wedding…but it was a set up for a joke so I forgive him. ;-)  I have to say, I was getting lots of chuckles from Sean tonight. I’m starting to appreciate his sense of humor. And he likes Tristan so he can’t be all bad. :-)  Val also gets points for funnies. More on that in the Cheese I’m sure. ;-)

I was starting to regret not going with my gut when Ingo was put in jeopardy, right?? Anyway, Victor and DL were the bottom two and DL’s time finally ran out.

How did we all do??

Heidi: I was hoping for DL but figured it would be either Andy or Victor. My gut was telling me Ingo and Victor in the bottom 2. So close…

Courtney: Court said Victor was toast, with DL second from the bottom.

Vogue: Said Victor and DL in the bottom two, with Victor going home.

Winner? The whole audience…and me and Court were both pretty close. Vogue was too, really.  I need to start listening to my gut more and not waffle – I said that I felt like Andy was pulling himself out of jeopardy. So happy to be right on that one!!

ETA: By popular request: Mark and Derek’s opening pro dance – great!!

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. :-)

DWTS Season 16, Week 5 – Dancing by the Numbers

Okay, that turned out somewhat better than expected. For all the pimping of Maks, he ended up being a non-event – for me, anyway.  It’s rather odd, actually. I guess when you have nothing better to pimp, pimp one of the pro dancers who’s known for being a “bad boy” who’s not on this season. Ummmm…okay. I guess TPTB are just pandering to one group or another all the damn time. For those extremist Maks fans who read this site just so they can complain about us (yeah, it makes no sense to me either), the ratings were up LAST week, so if they are up again this week? Get over yourselves…it’s a trend, not an aberration. Reminds me of the Twihards who claimed they were tanking the MTV Awards this year by not watching…and they were actually UP significantly. Don’t jack with numbers, man. :-)

Mah goodness, my favorites of the night were Jacoby and Kellie – fantastic. Loved it. Zendaya is being soured for me by the pimping…and seriously? The bent legs, the instability coming out of the turns…if this girl were dancing with Derek she’d be getting hosed for being a ringer. And we’d be getting trolls out the wazoo.  But since she’s dancing with Val she essentially has rainbows shooting out her ass.  The girl is a good dancer, yes. And I like her as a person. But I have to tell you, I’m seeing a LOT of people in the comments here and on twitter who are getting REALLY good at predicting exactly what will happen. Up for 2 weeks, down for two weeks…to come roaring back to get two tens. Hello – we’ve seen this storyboarding before.  I expect someone else will get a perfect 30 next week – either Aly or Kellie, most likely. Because we have to keep it a horse race at all costs, so it can’t be Zendaya. And, as predicted, Zendaya and Val get the encore.

In the “credit where credit is due” department – Kick ass opening dance, Lacey Schwimmer!! Excellent. Loved it. Girlfriend has been honing her group choreo skills over there in Vegas and it’s paid off.  MUCH better job than Sharna did last week on the women’s number, although Lacey has the benefit of time and no celeb partner. And Sharna is doing great with Andy.

Anyway….how did our dancers do?? Read more..

DWTS Tom Bergeron Interviewed About Boston Bombings, Last Night’s Show Hardest He’s Ever Done

Tony Dovolani interviewed host Tom Bergeron on the Boston bombings after Dancing With The Stars last night. Tom gets emotional…he’s sad and angry at the same time. It was the hardest show he’s ever done. Tony interviewed Aly too being she’s from Boston like Tom. More below. With that said, PureDWTS would like to extend our love, thoughts, and prayers to Tom, Aly, and everyone in and from Boston!!! The world unites in your suffering.xxxx

Louis Van Amstel And Sabrina Bryan Review Dancing With The Stars 16 Week 5

Louis Van Amstel and Sabrina Bryan weighed in on last night’s dances for Dancing With The Stars Week 5 on Good Morning America!! Below is some text from the link for who they think will be in the bottom three tonight and who is going home (please please, just don’t let it be Andy. Let it be D.L. or Victor instead. Andy is so much better than the other two.)

Who’s Going Home?

Sabrina: The bottom three, in my opinion, are Victor, DL, and Andy. With Victor having a turn-around this week, I think that it’s between our two comedians for who goes home this week. So far, Cheryl’s fans have saved her and DL from even hitting the bottom two, and as we all know with this competition, no one is safe.

Louis: I’m worried for DL, Victor, and Andy, but I think Victor goes home. He’s been in the bottom two twice now.

You can read more of what Louis and Sabrina think of each individual dance at Good Morning America!! I think GMA will also be posting some video coverage too with Sabrina and Louis shortly. Be watching for it here.

It’s Stevie Wonder Week On Dancing With The Stars Week 6, Interviews After Last Night’s Dance

What another great night of tv last night on Dancing With The Stars!! If you haven’t given us your reviews and ranked the couples, be sure you do so when you get time today in Courtney’s fun new Power Rankings Post here. Stay tuned for Heidi’s new “Numbers” post in a bit as well for her thoughts and predictions for who is going home tonight. For now, let’s get the couples reactions with George Pennacchio of On The Red Carpet. He finds out some dance info for next week already. Note too how Maks is interviewed as well….

First up, Kellie and Derek. Kellie is glad she didn’t “butcher” the dance last night and is happy with her dance. Derek talks of how much he loves Kellie and wants to her to be really good. He was so proud of her last night especially with shorter time to practice. Everyone will dance to a Stevie Wonder song next week and they have the Quick Step. They almost didn’t air the show last night because of the bombs in Boston, but, Derek is glad they did to offer some positivity and comfort. For more on these two, see Pure Derek Hough.

Jacoby tried to point his toes last night, but God made his feet for a reason. He’s excited to bring some “soul” next week with a Stevie Wonder song. George praises Jacoby’s positive attitude. Their prayers go out to Boston.

Maks joins Zendaya and Val in their interview with George. He thinks it was a good idea to bring back the older pros and the response was amazing last night. He also never said he “left”. He also says his new relationship with General Hospital isn’t over. Val talks of how great it was to have Maks and Anna join them. He loved the energy and it was great to get their help. Zendaya says this was the hardest week so far and she is so happy and thankful for last night’s 10’s. If Maks were a betting man, he sees the next Beyonce in Zendaya. George asks them about next week, but, Val doesn’t let out much info. He wants to savor last night’s moments. Maks explains the differences between he and Val’s choreographing styles.

Andy and Sharna! George praises Andy for having the best entrance ever on Dancing With The Stars. Even though they only got 6’s, Andy said they had the best time. Sharna said the song itself made their Paso Doble the most challenging to dance. If they make it to next week, they hope they get Stevie’s “Superstition” song. Andy is a little down and hopes he still gets to stay on the show for the fun he’s having.
