PureDWTS Guest Poem For Week 6: “Flipping The Ballroom Switch”

PureDWTS Guest blogger Lois is back with another one of her amazing poems and this time for Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Week 6. Thanks Lois!!

FLIPPING THE BALLROOM SWITCH!

The ballroom was opened, they flipped the switch
The dancers were puzzled, which dance was which

The Switch Up challenge was issued by the show
The dancers didn’t have a clue which way to go

The music began, the dancers found their places
Their dancing feet became happy, so did their faces

The dance styles changed, they found their groove
We grooved along with their every new-found move

The challenge over, the glitter pit full of applause
Showing appreciation to each other for the cause

The cast graced us with a spectacle of their own
Their feet danced in unison, they all brightly shone

Each dance showcased growing talents for sure
The couples were ready to showcase much more

The Paso Doble by Jack and Cheryl spicy with heat
All spic-and-span, they grooved to the Paso beat

The Tango by Bill and Emma was a new type of thrill
A Redneck, Cheessburger in Paradise, filled the bill

The Quickstep by Leah and Tony, their spirits soaring
Their feet speeding around the floor, crowd roaring

Corbin, Karina’s Viennese Waltz to Game of Thrones
Was flamboyant, fierce, pulsating deep bass tones

Derek and Amber shook the dancing shaker of spice
Their Samba was flashy, was classy, was oh so nice

Sasha and Nicole Foxtrotted Singing in the Rain style
So sweet and old-fashioned, giving us many a smile

Brant and Peta delivered the Tango with determination
Their precision, their perfection a charming sensation

Val and Elizabeth’s Cha Cha Cha put her in spotlight
A high-powered, a perfectly scored, dancing delight

There was another switch up, no one was eliminated
The cast was surprised, they hugged, they celebrated

The switch flipped down, the exhilarating evening done
We will return to the ballroom next week for more fun!

AfterBuzz TV Breaks Down Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Week 6

Below Afterbuzz breaks down Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Week 6. This time former Troupe member/singer Sonny Pedersen (love and miss him on the show! It’s good to see him again!), Grammy winning singer/actress/choreographer Toni Basil, and Anna Trebunskaya joins them! Like in previous weeks, see if you agree with them on their critiques if interested and let us know in comments.

My thoughts: I found Anna to be a little over the top again, but, I loved what she said on Amber this time and how she looks even better dancing when you see her at the show itself. I also agreed with everything they said about Len and his inconsistent judging.

Not bad I say once again. Going to only one night a week of Dancing With The Stars seems to be working. Let’s see what Miss Heidi thinks?

Heidi: I guess in a way it’s working – it’s audience isn’t eroding any further. I would say, holding steady. I need to find my old spreadsheets and build on them to see what the real story is. :-)  I’m sure it’s still down a bit from Season 15, but again, I would have to verify that. I think the viewer numbers always increase slowly toward the finale after hitting a season low in weeks 3 or 4.   I think I kinda like having it all in one night – I miss a bit of the cheese fest and, of course, pro dances – but they had already cut way down on those anyway.

A Possible Double Elimination Coming Up On Dancing With The Stars, More Interviews

Hey, just a few more media things to share that came out after dance night. First, don’t miss taking in this Access Hollywood coverage. They also interviewed a few of the couples….

Also, Today posted a good read about a possible “double elimination” coming up which we figured might happen. However, it may not happen next week. Then again, maybe it will? Take a look below at what an ABC rep told them. Thanks to PureDWTS reader Kaitlyn for sending and more at the link.

An ABC rep told TODAY that an upcoming episode will have two couples exiting the ballroom on the same night, but that that double-elimination won’t necessarily happen next week.

While there were rumors of a non-elimination circulating among the cast before Monday’s show, Smirnoff said she didn’t get her hopes up.

“You never know,” she insisted. “The plan changes five times a day. By the time you hear the old plan the new one is already in place.”

Prepare for anything. If a double elimination happens next week, who do you think should or will go?

I would say Leah for sure, but, I’m torn on the other and I don’t even want to think about it since it might be Bill? :(
