Dancing With The Stars Winners And Where They Put Their Trophies

OMG Yahoo has posted a new article about where the winners of Dancing With The Stars have put their trophies. J.R. Martinez joked that he’d put his trophy in bed or on the hood of his car. However, his partner, Karina Smirnoff, had more traditional plans. Shawn Johnson’s trophy is at her parents’ house. Apparently, they show off her Dancing With The Stars trophy more than they do her Olympic medals. So cute. Here is more in detail….

Season 13 winner J.R. Martinez joked about his plans for his trophy in 2011. He told Us Weekly, “Right now I’m going to tuck mine into my bed and it’s going to roll around with me. And then after that, once we’ve kind of grown apart, I’m going to glue it on the hood of my car and drive around Los Angeles and honk my horn, and I’ll be my own parade!”

But J.R.’s is pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, had more traditional plans: “I’ll put my trophy in my studio in Woodland Hills,” she said. “I have a space with spotlights and I’m going to polish it every morning!”

Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson (her season 8 partner was Mark Ballas) told the Des Moines Register her trophy is home sweet home — at her parents’ place. “It’s at my parents’ house (in West Des Moines), actually,” she said. “It’s not on display, but my parents seem to show it off more than my (Olympic) medals.”

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 .

DWTS16 Champs Kellie Pickler And Derek Hough Shoot New Music Video For “Someone Somewhere Tonight”

Just a little update on Dancing With The Stars Season 16 champs Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough. According to Pure Derek Hough via Ashley Mann On Music Row, the duo filmed a new music video for Kellie’s new single “Someone Somewhere TonightSomeone Somewhere Tonight - Single - Kellie Pickler in Nashville this past week. It’s not confirmed whether they will be dancing in the video yet, but, a lot of their fans (including myself) are hoping so. This isn’t Derek’s first music video. For those that don’t know, Derek also choreographed and danced in Cheryl Cole’s “Parachute” video (one of my all time favorite music videos ever!) Parachute - 3 Words . Remember THIS?

Oh, my heart is beating really fast!! :D Let’s hope Kellie’s new video is released soon!! Be sure to read more at Pure Derek Hough!!!

Heidi: Thanks, Vogue!! Yeah, I’m hoping Ashley is right AND I’m hoping there’s dancing. But another possibility is that he choreographed/directed or something like that. He really seems to be getting into the directing/production side of things which is a rather natural extension of being a stellar choreographer. Whatever it is, I can’t wait to see!!
