Pure Dancing With The Stars Guest Poem For DWTS Season 17 Week 7

Lois is back and this time she writes a fun poem for Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Week 7! Thanks Lois!

MY POEM FOR WEEK SEVEN
LOOSELY BASED ON THE ADDAMS FAMILY THEME SONG

THE SPOOKY, FOXY, OOKY BALLROOM FAMILY

They were Spooky, they were Foxy, they were ooky
The Ballroom Family was crazy and they were kooky

Their ballroom was a scream from each genius team
SpookyBomBom a Halloween graveyard it would seem

The Foxes were unleashed, sneaking around the floor
Foxing Awesome, their tails brought laughter and more

A mysterious announcement filled the ballroom air
Glory be, a guest judge will be the incredible Cher

The Ballroom Family felt pressure to do their very best
With each dance performed, they passed the final test

From Las Vegas to Los Angeles, Elvis came to inspire
Viva! Bill and Emma Quickstepped, they were on fire

A television anchor with special news went on the air
Elizabeth and Val’s Quickstep was attacked with flair

Tony and Leah shook their hips to a furious Salsa beat
Shimmying across the floor their steps were really neat

Brant and Peta Jived to a Tutti Fruitty, delicious song
It was a high-stepping treat, our feet Jived right along

Derek, Amber’s Paso Doble rocked the spooky crowd
Flying across the floor to rousing applause really loud

Corbin and Karina danced a sharpened Cha Cha Cha
Cheers rang out, there was many an oh, many an ah

Jack and Cheryl warmed up their feet with the Jive
It was a sparkling, spectacle, they surely came alive

Sasha and NIcole electrified with a Samba so fine
It was shimmery, glimmery, meriting scores of nine

The time came for the elimination, who would go
Oh dear, Sasha, Nicole surprisingly left the show

THE SPOOKY, FOXY, OOKY BALLROOM FAMILY
Flew through the ballroom, so bewitching to see

Week Eight will come next week how can that be
We will pay a return call to see the Ballroom Family!

SPOOKY, FOXY, OOKY BALLROOM FAMILY WERE SCREAMS!
HALLOWEEN, BOO! IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR IT SEEMS!

Kellie Pickler To Perform On Dancing With The Stars November 11th

Just a quick update!! According to some twitter rumblings last night and in a new interview with Thunder106 today, it appears Dancing With The Stars Season 16 champ Kellie Pickler will be performing on Dancing With The Stars on November 11th which is the same day as her new “The Woman I Am” album release. As fan @LinzeyReed suggested at twitter, wouldn’t it be cool if she danced with Derek Hough to “Someone Somewhere Tonight”? Indeed it would be. Thanks to Sandy for the heads up on this news.

JUST an FYI: We’ve heard from Kellie’s PR firm. She will be attending the show in the audience on this night to root for her friends, but, not singing.

PureDWTS Season 17, Week 7 – Power Rankings

Kind of a strange, low-energy night for me – I feel like everyone, across the board, had kind of a so-so night, and I think it’s due in part to the fact that two dances a week are really starting to wear on some of the couples.  I think I notice it more this season than any other season – some are dealing with injuries, some are dealing with strained partnerships, some are dealing with illnesses, and everyone seems to be feeling the pressure.

I think most of us can agree that it was not Nicole’s time to go home – however, I’m appalled at some of the sources of blame I’m seeing from those who are upset about it, and I place a lot of blame on the shoulders of TPTB for some really sh*tty scoring decisions.  Nicole got a very kind score for her samba – while it wasn’t bad, I certainly don’t think it was 27-worthy, as she seemed to struggle with timing and there was very little hip action.  So you can’t blame scores for her exit…although the judges likely screwed her over by overscoring just about everyone except Bill – it only served to make the margins smaller, which meant that someone below her needed even fewer votes to surpass her.  And this was ON TOP of the big points dump from last week, so the margins were itty bitty.  And sorry, but those of you upset about her going home – you were actually voting for her, right? Cause I’m finding that the biggest complainers about Nicole’s exit were people that didn’t bother to throw a single vote her way all season.  If you didn’t vote, you don’t get to bitch & moan, and you are part of the problem.  Snookole needed VOTES…and she didn’t get them.  Kinda how this show works…this isn’t really a revelation, kids.

And fair warning: I’m going to be prone to bouts of rantining this week, after some of the wanton idiocy and deductive reasoning leaps I witnessed after last night’s elimination.  I’m allergic to stupid, y’know ;-)

1/2.) TIE: Corbin & Karina and Amber & Derek – Just kind of an odd night from both of these couples – I don’t feel like either one was operating at peak performance levels.  I think Corbin & Karina coped as well as they could with a rather odd cha-cha song – seemed like there was a lot of what Len would call “frippery”, though…lotta side-by-side hip-hop sections, but I kinda blame the rhythm changes in the song for that.  Someone on Twitter remarked that Karina seemed stressed – and yes, I have to agree, and wonder if the constant pressure to make their routines better and better is beginning to wear on she & Corbin’s partnership.  Then there was Amber & Derek, who both had injuries to contend with – while I think they handled their paso doble well, I think Derek did kinda take the safe route on it; seemed like it wasn’t as daring or impactful as some of the other paso dobles we’ve seen from him.  Pleasant to watch, yes; super-innovative and exciting? Not really.  Let’s hope they can get back into good physical form so they can tackle more daring stuff.  Read more..

Cher Interviewed On Judging And Performing On Dancing With The Stars, Career Tribute Planned

I’m so excited about Cher judging and performing on Dancing With The Stars. I’ve always loved her. As a kid growing up in the 70′s, I remember being so hooked on she and Sonny in their variety show together and then later The Cher Show (if you don’t think she can dance or knows something about dancing, do a You Tube search on both variety shows). Remember how she use to flip her hair? lol Anyway, People.com interviewed her about her judging and singing gig next week on Dancing With The Stars. Note too how the article says Dancing With The Stars will play tribute to her “decades-long” music career!

No one was more stunned than Cher when she recently found out Dancing with the Stars will pay tribute to her decades-long music career on the Nov. 4 show.

“It’s always strange when people do something like this. You’re not thinking about those kinds of things,” she tells PEOPLE. “It just always takes me by surprise. It just does.”

Cher will sing her hit “Believe” and her new song “Closer To The Truth” on the show, as well as serve as a guest judge, but won’t be dancing because of a foot injury she sustained years ago. “I am waiting to have an operation,” she says. “The doctor got a little crankier and said I have to do it.”

Even if she could dance today, you won’t find Cher dancing on DWTS as a contestant. “Aren’t I old enough now not to be a contestant anymore?” the singer, 67, says. “Haven’t I got past the contestant part?”

More at People.com . She discusses Chaz too and his dramatic weight loss!

ETA: Here is more info on Cher, the tribute, and the dances planned for next week.

ETA2: If you go to Entertainment Weekly, you can watch a video of some of the cast talking about Cher and how they feel about her being on the show next week. They are excited to say the least. lol

PureDWTS Season 17 Week 7 Media After Dance Night, Some New Dances Revealed For Week 8

Haven’t the AfterBuzz TV interviews been excellent this Season? I’m liking them as much as the George Pennacchio interviews for On The Red Carpet. They get to the heart of the matter below. Also, and as in previous weeks, they find out a few of the new dances for next week. Note how Emma and Bill have a Disco dance (but, it could possibly change). Karina and Corbin have the Argentine Tango. Peta says she doesn’t know their dance yet, but, it’s one of two. Val and Elizabeth don’t say.

The On The Red Carpet interviews aren’t up yet, but, if you go to ABC7, you can see a preview some interviews for what might be coming. Read more..

Sasha Farber And Snooki Dancing With The Stars Elimination Interviews (Videos)

For media starters today, let’s go straight to all the new interviews with Snooki and Sasha! It was so sad seeing them go too soon. I have to say (like so many of you have said in comments this season)….Snooki surprised me. I was never a big fan to her before she did Dancing With The Stars. Before the season started, I forecasted her as being the “most dramatic”. Was I ever proven wrong. She was nothing but refreshing and a pure delight to watch on this show….and so fun and cute too. And Sasha…I have to give him props too. He was fierce out there on the dance floor with her. I especially loved their high jumps and cartwheels, etc. Ok, enough from me, here are their interviews. I love how Sasha said she was “a dream come true” from him…

Stay tuned! We’ll have more with these two later. xx

ETA: Below are Snooki and Sasha on GMA. Also, be watching The View. Around mid-day, they should be posting their interview from today’s episode.

ETA2: If you visit People, you can see an interview with Snooki. Bill and Emma and Cheryl and Jack chime in on her departure as well.
