Who’s Dancing What for Week 3 on Dancing With The Stars Season 22? What silliness will occur this week? Are we going to get “Most Memorable Year” aka Week of the Rumba??
Ok, here’s what we have so far. For all the latest media and interviews after the show, this link.
ETA: More dances below via Nyle’s twitter and Sharna’s new blog. ~Vogue
ETA2: A few songs & dances. I’m guessing on Marla’s dance, because I’m not sure there’s any other dance that could fit “Happy”. And there was some question as to whether Wanya’s song had gotten cleared or not – but if it did, MAN…that’s gonna be a gorgeous waltz. -Court-
ETA3: Apparently Von’s a huge Phil Collins fan, and part of his pregame ritual involves listening to his music. Source isn’t 100% sure on song, but it’s the only one Von mentioned by name and they’ve used it on the show before, so I’d say it’s most likely this one. I don’t think Von’s song and dance is meant to be funny…but just visualizing him doing it, I’m cracking up, cause all I can think about is Mike Tyson in The Hangover 😛 -Court-
ETA4: Ginger’s dance, via DWTSGossip. I would say that Ginger having contemporary is a pretty “lucky” get, but since her partner is Val, I’m not so sure. On the plus side, he can legit choreo a dance that has no movement for quite a few bars. That appears to be in his wheelhouse these days. 🙂 ~Heidi
ETA5: Court here, doing a drive-by to drop in Nyle’s song, which Peta thinks is “fantastic” and is really excited about 🙂
ETA6: …and another drive-by with Paige’s dance.
ETA7: Judging from the brief snippet in his Snapchat from earlier – sounds like this is Antonio’s song. -Court-
ETA8: Thoughts on the rest of the songs: I can’t imagine that Mischa is somehow going to be better at samba than cha-cha or tango, and I doubt her song is really going to resonate with viewers. I may tear up during Doug’s waltz – “Rainbow Connection” just guts me, for some reason. “Home” is a dull song by a singer with an even duller name. If Witney doesn’t choreograph some dramatic moves for the infamous “In the Air Tonight” drum solo, I may commit seppuku with a plastic knife. – Court-
ETA9: A couple last-minute updates before showtime – according to Mischa’s blog, she is now doing
a foxtrot instead of a samba, which sounds a helluva lot more manageable given her skill set (or lack thereof). And according to Val’s instagram, he & Ginger are going first – still a decent running order position, but I daresay we may finally see Ginger get realistic scores this week…going first historically seems to mean you’re going to be underscored, relative to the rest of the cast. -Court-
ETA10: George Pennacchio confirms on Twitter that Paige & Mark are going 7th. Paige’s best running order position yet, and the first time she’s cracked the second hour. This is a good sign 🙂 Not so good: Doug going second (statistically the worst position), & Kim going 3rd (not much better). Looks like they may be stacking the back half of the show with the big hitters. DT confirms that 9th, 10th, 11th belong to Mischa, Wanya, & Nyle, respectively.
ETA11: Per DT, Mischa’s still doing samba…maybe she misspoke in her blog? Or got confused?
