Judge Bruno Tonioli Assesses And Advises The Final 5 On Dancing With The Stars

USA Today has a new interview up with Dancing With The Stars judge Bruno Tonioli. He discusses the Final 5′s weaknesses and strengths. He also gives each couple some advice which you can read below. See if you agree?? I think he pretty much nails it.

For Ingo….

tighten up. Don’t make any mistakes. Really smooth out the Latin.”

For Jacoby….

Bruno’s advice: “He has to clean up the footwork and make it much more exact, because he has the performance value and energy” to go all the way. Bruno notes that past football stars have done well, including Emmitt Smith, who was crowned DWTS champ in 2006, and Hines Ward, who won in 2011. “The sportsmen, in a way, they comes to the final and they deliver in an unexpected turn. I think the margin is going to be very, very small whoever gets to the finals. It often comes down to the freestyle dance. Jacoby has that explosive energy that could bring the house down.”

For Aly….

Bruno’s advice: “Add the softness to the strength.”

For Zendaya…..

Bruno’s advice: “If she took three or four ballet classes, she would learn to sustain the long times. I think that’s what, if anything, she needs to work on: elongating the lines in the slow, lyrical dances.”

For Kellie….

Bruno’s advice: “Kellie, throw yourself into it with gay abandon!” He adds, “She has to believe in herself. Don’t show doubt in her face. Ever. At all.”

To read this interview in full, see USA Today. It’s a good one.

Dancing with the Stars Season 16, Week 9 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Well, are we lacking a twitter vote this week? Praise the lord. But I’m sure a new gimmick will be announced in 5…4…3…

So it seems we are missing Jacoby’s first dance…could he be doing the same dance as Kellie for the third week in a row and be doing Argentine Tango?? And why are they the only ones mimicking each other in dances at this late stage?? Anyway, where’s Courtney? She’s the expert in who has what dances left. I *think* Jacoby has AT, Contemporary, Tango and Samba of the dances that have been danced this season. No one has done Waltz – fine by me. I think we only need Viennese Waltz. If they’re looking to get rid of him, he’s likely doing AT. If it’s Ingo headed out the door, he probably has Samba.

In no particular order….
ETA: Great. Kellie going first. That’s a great sign. Only not really.

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 Gleb Savchenko And Wife Elena Samodanova Attend “On The Go Beauty” Event in Beverly Hills

Awww, it’s so good to see pro dancers Gleb Savchenko and his wife Elena Samodanova again, isn’t it? Such a beautiful couple that I’d love to see dance together on Dancing With The Stars. Yesterday, it looked as if they had some fun in the sun as they attended the 5th Annual “On The Go Beauty” Event in Beverly Hills, California. Sean Lowe was also in attendance. To view some fun takes of them all, see Getty Images.

Don’t these two look hip and stylish?! Last night pro dancers Peta Murgatroyd and Cheryl Burke attended 102.7 KIIS FM’s Wango Tango held at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California. So cute and I love peta’s shoes and shorts. You can view more fun photos of them at Zimbio Pictures.
