DWTS Season 16 – The Great Voting Controversy That Wasn’t

It’s funny – when people were complaining loudly last season about not being able to vote on ABC.com, no one paid attention. Well, except for Shawn fans, that is.  We were told we just had to deal, that Melissa won fair and square.  Hmmm….maybe not so much.

Not so fun, is it, now that the shoe is on the other foot?  I’m writing this post to explain to readers why this season was actually MORE fair, in terms of voting, than last season was – and why I think ABC realized they screwed up last season and weren’t going to let it happen again.

So, ask yourself this – as a long time, or even new, reader of PureDWTS, what happens when a whole bunch of people go to the website at the same time?? Why, it bogs down, it crashes and only certain lucky people manage to get through. Now, our server may not be the greatest, and you would think that ABC would have a much bigger one able to handle a lot more traffic…right? Of course – but DWTS is also watched by anywhere from 14 to 16 million people. When you have one contestant with 2.6 million twitter followers urging all her fans to create new email addresses in order to vote, in addition to all the regular users of ABC.com for voting, you suddenly have a situation where the website can’t handle the traffic and it just crashes.

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. :-)

Cheryl Burke Wants Khloe Kardashian To Dance On DWTS, Said She Would Win

PureDWTS reader Lois has a way of gathering up our feelings with her Dancing With The Stars poems and this time is no different…..

TWAS THE WEEK AFTER

Twas the week after our favorite dancing show
And all through the house, TVs have no glow

Not even a peep from Tom Bergeron we hear
No pros performing sparkling dances are near

No sequined costumes flowing across the floor
No pitter-patter of dancing feet, oh no, no more

Where is the band, did Harold Wheeler disappear
The music stopped, we have no tones for our ear

The couples have all gone home, it just can’t be
There is no more dancing for our eyes to see

What shall we do until Season 17 comes back
Our DVRs and YouTube will take up the slack

We blow a kiss good-bye to a season of dance
Oh how we wish we had just one other chance

To see the dancers again in all their regal glory
Return soon dancing show to tell another story!

WE MISS YOU, WE MOURN YOU, WE SHED A TEAR, OUR LOVE WE SEND!
DANCING WITH THE STARS COME BACK AROUND THE DANCING BEND!

THANKS Lois!!

With that said, on with a new Dancing With The Stars “watch out” and one not to be taken too seriously (let’s hope, lol). Life and Style Magazine is reporting pro dancer Cheryl Burke would like to see Khloe Kardashian dance on Dancing With The Stars. What’s more, and if she did so, she’d win. 8O

Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke had an uphill battle when she was paired with comedian DL Hughley this season, but the two-time mirror ball champion isn’t dwelling on what might have been. Instead, she’s already focused on the next season of the hit show – and which celebs she’d like to see foxtroting their way across the floor. Number one on her wish list? Khloe Kardashian.

“Khloe’s got to do it,” Cheryl says. “I think she would be amazing. I think she would actually win the whole thing. She looks great, and I think she has natural rhythm and I think she would be amazing.”

More at Life and Style Magazine. What do you think if this were to happen?

Simply put, ‘No, please NO’ for me! I could barely handle seeing her on the X Factor last season or in the audience screaming when her brother Rob danced on the show. :o

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko . For fun music and dance mixes, visit WilUnleashed Soundcloud.
