This week, as people who are site members might be aware, we have a lot of info, but a lot of it isn’t really clear yet. It’s still a work in progress. Here’s the parts we’re fairly sure of:
ETA: I totally called this one on Twitter yesterday – Singing in the Rain by Derek Hough? Perfect. Now is it that actual song? I’m assuming yes.
ETA2: The subtle-as-a-sledgehammer hints continue at
the DancingABC Instagram Mike’s Twitter, as he pretty much confirms he’s gonna be Robin Hood.
ETA3: So, Len said during this past Monday’s show that Alfonso was doing V.Waltz, but his wife says he’s doing quickstep.
ETA4: We’re kinda doubting that Alfonso’s wife is right…
ETA5: …and I’m sure you can see why now No clue what the hell he & Witney are gonna do to this song…I’ve listened to it at least 10 times, and cannot find any strong semblance of a foxtrot or quickstep rhythm. It’s a tad fast for a foxtrot, but not even enough for quickstep…who knows. But I’m sure whatever it is – Alfonso’s gonna put on a helluva show Looks like Jonathan’s Mean Girls song didn’t clear so he ended up with his 2nd choice. I have to wonder if they’re bending the rules a bit and going with the Amy Winehouse version, though, as the Beyonce version is rather slow. Looks like “Pour Some Sugar on Me” was a safety song – but part of me kinda wants to see the pros dance to it instead And a different source confirmed that Bethany & Derek’s dance style is jazz – with quite a bit of tap influence -Court-
ETA6: ZOMG PLOT TWIST LOLZ!!!! Apparently “I Feel Pretty” is now off the table – and Vajanel has been seen rehearsing to “America” instead. Wondering if Val may have jumped the gun on confirming they had cleared “I Feel Pretty” – either that, or “I Feel Pretty” wasn’t working out, and they asked to switch songs (after switching dances already, mind you). Food for thought – draw your own conclusions. Confirmed Betsey & Alfonso’s dances – Tony is apparently doing some gorgeous lifts with Betsey, so they do, indeed, have contemporary; and Alfonso’s old lady was right – he is doing quickstep. How? I’m not sure…but I’m certainly intrigued.
ETA7: We have a more detailed explanation of what went down with West Side Story-gate – wanna hear it? Looka hurr.
ETA8: We can always rely on Cheryl to share her dance order…see below.
ETA9: Vogue here and scroll below to see a new “Movie Night” commercial. Here’s to tonight!
ETA10: Probably the last update before showtime – and before Heidi’s discussion post goes live in less than 10 minutes (complete with spoilers about next week’s show!) Apparently Randy & Karina are opening the show – AGAIN – and Betsey & Tony might be going 3rd…they said they are on Instagram, but Michael’s racing team also tweeted that he’s going 3rd. So….who knows. Enjoy the show, kids
