TGIF, kids! Only 3 days till showtime
4 days till the premiere! And we’ve still got spoilers for ya
If you’re looking for song and dance spoilers for Monday night’s show, check out Heidi’s “Who’s Dancing What?” post – we’ll continue to update it throughout the weekend. My mini-spoilers are primarily going to be intel on coming weeks and how the couples are doing in rehearsals…as well as any other random tidbits that fall into my lap Read more..
Normally this list would be a lot longer, but John, Heidi, & Lori all had brain farts on music – leaving Vogue & I to pick up the slack Here’s some of the songs we’d love to hear on DWTS this season…and we want to hear yours! Let us know in the comments what songs you’re hoping get used on the show!
“Chandelier” by Sia – This has been on repeat on my iPod all summer. Just a great song for a contemporary routine.
“It’s Not Unusual” by Tom Jones – I’ve wished for it before, and now that we finally got Alfonso on the show, I need to see a quickstep to it…or maybe even a quickstep/samba fusion
“Sunglasses at Night” by Corey Hart – My perennial song wish – you guys know this Well I wished for Alfonso & got him – maybe Rob Wade will give me my much-anticipated paso doble to this one!
“You & I (Nobody in the World)” by John Legend - While everyone was going crazy over “All of Me” last season, my favorite song off of John’s latest album is this one – it’s kind of the R&B answer to Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight”: a guy telling his lady she’s beautiful no matter what, as he watches her get ready to go out at night. And if you haven’t seen the video yet, go watch it right MEOW – it’s just perfect. If I only see one rumba all season – I want it to be to this song.
“Stay” by Shakespears Sister – Thought about this song last season upon finding out that Candace & Charlie were dancing to Sam Smith’s “Stay with Me”. It’s a pretty old song, but it would make a stellar song for a contemporary routine – hell, I think it would make a fantastic contemporary TRIO song, based on the narrative of the music video. Give it to Derek and watch him work wonders
“Conjunction Junction” from Schoolhouse Rock – Had an epiphany the other night while watching a documentary about Schoolhouse Rock – how fun would it be if they did a Schoolhouse Rock theme week? This song would make such a fun foxtrot, and would allow the pros to show off a bit more of a playful side.
“All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor – This song is so ridiculously catchy, and my sister and I have a running inside joke about this song and a gif of a dancing honey badger. Just don’t ask Would be a fun cha-cha.
“Love Runs Out” by OneRepublic – A currently-popular song that’s actually appropriate for paso doble. So please, producers – no more duds like “Sail”.
“Billy Jean” by Michael Jackson – I’d love to see Alfonso bring this song to life as his older self being this is the song he did with Michael in the Pepsi commercial. That could possibly give us a big “Michael Jackson” moment and I love how this show features something by Michael almost every season.
“A Place With No Name” by Michael Jackson – This is my favorite song currently. I’d freak if the pros performed this in a group number. They could bring on Sharna’s boyfriend Paul Kirkland to dance as well and help with choreography being he performs in the new Michael Jackson Vegas show.
“Come Get It Bae” by Pharrell – This is another one of my current favorite songs. I don’t care who performs it or how….just so they do it. I know Sharna likes this song a lot too.
“Hunter” by Pharrell – Being this song has “Duck Dynasty” mentions, I’d love to see Mark and Sadie dance to this song. Not sure if it’s age or lyric appropriate (maybe the band could fix it somehow?), but, it’s a great dance song.
“Anything Goes” by Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga – What a beautiful song for a Fox Trot or a Waltz.
“Bailando” by Enrique Iglesias – This would be such a great song for a “Latin” group number. The cast could bring the video to life.
“Fairytale” by Alexander Rybak – What a cool and snappy pop Irish/Hungarian “gypsie” jig. A song like this would make a great mix up to the show. I was hooked the first time I heard it.
“Queremos Paz” by The Gotan Project – This song would be so cool for a Tango or Argnetine Tango. Actually, I’d take anything by The Gotan Project for a Latin number. Ssssssssssss
Now let’s hear your suggestions!
Happy Hump Day, kids! Only 3 more work days till the premiere…and we’ve saved some of the best mini spoilers for this home stretch before the big night
Less than a week to go before the show! Hope you’re as pumped as we are Here’s a funny story to make this Tuesday go by more quickly: apparently I’ve been secretly working for the DWTS casting department all along, guys – some people on Twitter “have been suspicious about it for awhile”, and the fact that Alfonso & Antonio have been cast this season is “proof that I have a profound influence on casting”. I mean, I guess I’ll take credit…but where’s my check, ABC payroll department? Mama needs some more Oribe deep conditioner
Happy Monday, kids! Only 7 more days until the premiere Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave such kind, sweet words on yesterday’s mini spoiler post – you guys are the lifeblood of this site, and the reason I do what I do
Trying not to start this post out on a sour note (especially since it’s NFL Sunday and that makes me happy!), but a bit of a PSA given some of the tones of the comments I’ve been seeing in the past week or so: try not to be a Debbie Downer, mmmmkay? We realize that not everyone is as thrilled with the show as we are, and that’s ok – but if you see that everyone here is excitedly discussing this season’s cast and who their favorite is, do you really need to (or feel it’s appropriate to) butt in and throw something out like “Psssh, this season’s cast is lame and I’m not watching!” It’s kind of like being at a party and walking up to a group of people talking about their favorite Michael Jackson song, and saying (without being solicited to do so) that “Michael Jackson sucks.” It’s a buzzkill. Don’t be a buzzkill, k? It’s not about suppressing your opinions – it’s about finding the right way (and time, and place) to express them. CBS cares
