New Dancing With The Stars Season 16 Las Vegas Odds For Week 7

“I want to lift the audience to the miraculous in human nature. After all, we shouldn’t be here, with all the odds against us in nature. It’s kind of unusual and wonderful!” ~Ballet Choreographer Paul Taylor on beating the odds

It’s that time again!!! Sports Bovada has posted their new Odds for Dancing With The Stars going to week 7. Note how they’ve lowered Sean Lowe’s odds dramatically from the week(s) before and rightfully so. I think if Sean doesn’t show some vast improvement this coming Monday night, he could find himself eliminated? They have also listed Andy Dick at the bottom. I think they underestimate Andy’s entertainment factor. As in previous weeks, I look forward to Andy just doing “his Jagger Moves thing” and proving the odds makers wrong again (Have I said? I love fighters like that! :) ). I also think they should have put Kellie at the top this week.

Zendaya Coleman 1/1
Kellie Pickler 11/10
Jacoby Jones 7/1
Aly Raisman 12/1
Ingo Rademacher 75/1
Sean Lowe 75/1
Andy Dick 100/1

Here are last week’s Las Vegas Odds to compare.

Zendaya Coleman 11/10
Kellie Pickler 2/1
Jacoby Jones 13/4
Aly Raisman 15/2
Sean Lowe 33/1
Ingo Rademacher 75/1
Andy Dick 150/1
Victor Ortiz 200/1

Let’s see what Miss Heidi and Court think and be sure to let us know what you think too in comments….

Courtney: If I were the oddsmakers, I’d stop banking on the power of the ABC “family” to pull Zendaya & Sean (and to a lesser degree, Ingo) through week after week.  Sean in particular really kind of crashed & burned this week – he may have gotten a better score than Andy, but I really don’t think he did much better…and while Sean ended up in the bottom 2 with weekly cannon fodder Victor, Andy did not.  Now while I don’t have any delusions about Andy winning this whole thing, I do think he’s doing better than any of us anticipated – and support for him just seems to be growing.  Notice that he hasn’t landed in the bottom 2 since week 3…and last week, he wasn’t even in jeopardy.  Unless Sean either knocks his dance out of the park this week or gets blatantly overscored, I fully expect to see him in the bottom 2 on Tuesday.  Jury’s still out on Ingo, too – as hard as he’s working, I get the feeling he may be blending into the woodwork, and I’m not really seeing a ton of improvement from him…and on top of that, Kym seems like her patience may be wearing thin.  He could also be bottom 2 material in the coming week.  As for the top of the pack – if the team dance was any indicator, Zendaya is not immune to mediocrity, and I would really consider that paso doble to be an epic fail on Val’s part; there was no reason that they shouldn’t have won that challenge, EASILY.  But I daresay complacency could be Zen & Val’s downfall – too many consecutive weeks of praise can lead a couple to feel a bit too…comfortable.  Hopefully this week was a wake-up call.

Heidi: My perspective is a bit different after reading the ABC press release for this weeks show. If the judges work it the way I think they will work it, it will mean Zendaya once again at the top of the pack, whether she deserves it or not, and Andy going home.  It is one HUGE manipulative ploy – and if they keep that sort of thing up for the rest of the season, the people the judges want to go home,  WILL go home.  Right now, Andy seems to be that guy. And that pisses me off.  IF the odds makers are looking at that, then they might be right on the money.  Or they could be totally clueless and end up being right accidentally. :-) I DO agree that the odds, combined with the twitter voting crap could really cause an issue with Val and Zendaya – if they think they have this in the bag, they could be in trouble. I mean, really – why do TPTB feel like they need to do this immunity thing? Who isn’t getting the votes? Would they do it for Kellie?? Doubtful.  Add in the complacency that some of her fans might be feeling and you are straying into shocking elimination territory.  Seriously, I’ve heard lots of people say they didn’t even vote in the finale last season, they were so sure that Shawn was going to win. How many now consider Zendaya a “sure thing” – including Val and Zendaya themselves?? I don’t know – I’m seriously asking. Anyway, they have Zen and Kellie close to tied with Jacoby at 7/1?? I think they’re under rating him a bit, but we’ll see.

Juanes And Michael Bublé To Perform On Dancing With The Stars, Immunity Dance Details

Juanes And Michael Bublé are set to perform for Dancing With The Stars Week 7!! Also ABC has outlined how the Immunity Dances will take place. Below is more from the official site….

Also on the agenda for Latin Night, the remaining seven couples will dance to Latin hits. After each couple has danced, the top couple based on judges’ scores will be safe from elimination for the week. The remaining six couples will then take part in the Dance Off, where they’ll compete against another couple doing the cha-cha, jive or rumba. For each of the three face-offs, the judges will declare a winning team, who’ll be able to add three bonus points to their score.

Hmmm, why do I get the feeling the Immunity Dance isn’t going to be very fair? :-?

Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the heads up on this news! Stay tuned, we may have more details on the show to post later.

UPDATE: Below is more from ABCMedia Net….

Episode 1607 & 1607A” – It’s Latin Night on “Dancing with the Stars,” as seven remaining couples take to the ballroom floor and perform to a Latin-inspired hit, MONDAY, APRIL 29 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET). In a new twist and another “Dancing with the Stars” first, the couple with the highest overall score for the night will be granted immunity from elimination on Tuesday. The couples who do not receive immunity will then compete in a dance-off to earn extra judges’ points in an effort to increase their overall score. The show will also feature music by Grammy winner and Spanish language rock artist Juanes, who will perform a medley of his hits, including “La Camisa Negra” and “Cumbia Sexy.”

On TUESDAY, APRIL 30, one couple will be eliminated on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show” (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET). The show will feature music by Michael Bublé who will perform “Come Dance with Me” off his new album, “To Be Loved.” The show will also feature its second “AT&T Spotlight Performance” of the season, focusing on youth organization the Camden Sophisticated Sisters and its founder, Tawanda Jones. The program, located in Camden, New Jersey, provides an opportunity for young women to learn discipline and cooperation and to gain a sense of achievement through drill team competition. This “Spotlight Performance” will feature an inspiring routine by eight members of the organization. In addition, “Macy’s Stars of Dance” returns for its fourth installment of the season. Choreographed and performed by Allison Holker and Stephen “tWitch” Boss, the dance will feature musical accompaniment by violinist and youtube sensation Lindsey Stirling.

Also, below is a Codebear with some information about the girl hurt in the Boston Bombing. Her segment was filmed today….


Adrianne Haslet’s appearance on Dancing With the Stars was filmed today, and will air Tuesday night – Be sure to tune in! #DWTS

DWTS16 Aly Raisman Chats On Last Week’s Dances, Mark Ballas Has Become A Best Friend

Aly Raisman was sad last week from what happened in Boston, but, her partner, Mark Ballas, was such a big help to her. She talks all about it and last week’s dances in a new interview with the LA Times. She speaks about costuming as well….

Q. How much input do you have into picking out the outfit you will wear?

Mark Ballas and the design team come up with the idea because they know which looks and colors go best with each dance. They always ask for my input and make sure I feel comfortable! I love all of Mark’s ideas, and the costume team is absolutely amazing.

Q. You are understandably still somewhat distracted by the events in Boston, but it looked like Mark did his best to try to lift your spirits all week. How hard is it to set your emotions aside and focus on dancing?

It’s definitely hard. Part of doing this show is learning to act while you are performing; however, I am not an actress. I am a very easily read person. Mark could definitely tell I was sad this week and just not myself. I was watching the news and calling friends and family at home to make sure everyone was OK. Mark always makes me laugh and makes me feel confident. He is not only an amazing dancer and teacher, but also a best friend. I am so lucky to have him. Meeting him has definitely changed my life in a great way!

More at the LA Times. I felt her finally last week. I hope we see her let loose and just enjoy dancing again Monday night like she did last week.
