Aww, looking so cute above are Karina Smirnoff and Cheryl Burke! Tonight the two Dancing With The Stars pros graced the red carpet at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. You can view more fun photos of them at Getty Images here and here. I wonder if anyone else from Dancing With The Stars will show up? If so, stayed tuned for more pics.
BroadwayWorld.com has released the show details for Dancing With The Stars Season 18 Week 8. It outlines the dances and how Abby Miller will be judging. Also note how Mark Ballas will be performing his new single “Get My Name”.
Reality television personality and professional choreographer Abby Lee Miller of “Dance Moms” joins as a guest judge alongside Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba on “Dancing with the Stars” MONDAY, MAY 5 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. No stranger to the world of competitive dancing, Abby will bring a unique perspective and surely won’t hold back from articulating while seated at the judge’s table. The anticipated quarter finals begin as Pro Mark Ballas makes his solo recording artist debut singing his new single “Get My Name,” along with his band and the house band “Ray Chew Live.” Then, the remaining couples will perform an individual dance and the first ever “Celebrity Dance Duel.”
In the Duel Round, two couples will be paired up to perform a style of dance that they’ve both previously performed. All four members of the mini team will dance together to the same song but during the middle of the performance, the Pros will leave the floor, leaving the two celebrities to dance together. At the end of the night, one couple will face elimination.

Below is James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd talking to KTLA today about Dancing With The Stars….from the judges, their costumes, their relationship (this topic is getting so old. Why not ask them on their new dances? oh well), and the competition. Read more..
Be sure you head to Pure Derek Hough when you get a moment. Heidi and I have posted some fun new pictures, screen caps, articles, and interviews with Amy Purdy and Derek Hough this week that you won’t want to miss seeing.
Also, Derek and Julianne Hough talked about judging and Dancing With The Stars on Access Hollywood yesterday(seen below). I have to say.. looking back for how Julianne judged Danica and Maks seals it further for how right she was(imo). Since then, we’ve seen Danica shell out better dances. We also seen Maks stepping up his choreography with Meryl in their last few dances. So, question: was Julianne really that bad or wrong with how she judged Maks like so many haters and critics went on about at the time??
I also love what Derek said about why he did Dancing With The Stars this season and how it’s come to mean something more for him in a deeper way versus doing it only to win a Mirror Ball (how’s that in answering your question about Maks, Kit? *roll eyes).
Julianne and Derek also promoted their new Move LIVE On Tour in the new Access Hollywood interview. This tour, Ballroom With A Twist, and Sway -The Trilogy is a summer dance calling to fill the void in the off season of Dancing With The Stars. If you haven’t bought tickets yet for Derek and Julianne’s tour, be sure you do so here or at the venues listed. Too fun…
