SHUFFLING THE DANCING DECK, THE VIEWERS GOT IT RIGHT!
RETURNING THE ORIGINAL PAIRS NEXT WEEK FOR LATIN NIGHT!
Allison Holker writes at In Touch that she and Antonio Sabato Jr. had a blast this week on Dancing With The Stars. He flew into the air and loved every minute. Here is more….
The whole week was filled with smiles and laughter. We were given the dance style of BOLLYWOOD, which crazy hard, fast and technical, and teaching a guy that the judges had previously said was “stiff,” well, I was leery. But I think because we had an instant connection, the teaching became easy, and he learned it so well! He put in the hours we needed and also anted this number to be unique and shine.
And, I believe we did just that. We had a blast on that stage and he flew into the air and he loved every minute. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. What a fantastic week!
I’m glad they had so much fun!! That’s all that matters in the end. More at In Touch including some photos from behind the scenes.
Below is the new Afterbuzz TV show. Kristyn Burtt, Anna Trebunskaya, Suri Serano,and special guest Jenna Johnson review Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Week 5. Straight up, Krisytn mentions it was “The Judgy Show”. Listen through and see if you agree with them. I was pretty much ok with everything until they got to Derek and Sadie. It was “spectacular” dance in my opinion.
Carrie Ann Inaba has written about Dancing With The Stars last night at Parade. She talks of how “change is hard”. She commended all the couples for handling the switch-up dances with “grace and dignity”. She also mentioned a few of the couples. Below is her take on Alfonso and Cheryl for one…
Now, let’s move on to Alfonso Ribeiro and Cheryl Burke who performed a really good flamenco. I didn’t get a chance to comment on their dance so I will do so now. It had incredible chemistry. I agree with Julianne there. They had a mature partnership, which seemed as though they were part of one. I commend them on that. I loved seeing Alfonso’s passion come out and the way he commanded the stage. My comments are quite specific. Flamenco is a proud dance. It is in some ways an act of defiance, an expression of a gypsy culture that is an emotional expression that is almost like a crying out to the Gods. When you dance the flamenco, you can be small in person but you must dance it larger than life. You must fill the room with your gestures and your soulful expression. Their dance was nicely choreographed, however, Alfonso didn’t expand outward. He didn’t fill the room with passion. It was a one-dimensional performance in this way. He needed to lift his torso more, and his arm movements needed to be more expansive to have more tension. There was however, one brilliant moment in the routine that left an impact for me. He was dancing side-by-side with Cheryl and he was looking directly into my eyes for two counts of eight. In that moment he was so in the dance. I could see it and feel it. His arm movements were still a bit shortened, but that passion, it was mesmerizing and powerful. Go Alfonso!
I felt passion all over that dance on my TV set. The best dance of the night along with Derek and Sadie and Mark and Bethany in my opinion. More at Parade including a surprise visit from her boyfriend from Spain (he’s so cute).
