Julianne Hough Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Semi-Finals Style Blog

Did you like Julianne Hough’s look and dress on Dancing With The Stars last night? I think her dress was one of my most favorites of the season. The color looked so elegant and pretty on her. I loved all the jewels on it. Be sure to see People as they discuss how Julianne put the look together. They have included some fun “behind the scenes” shots as well. Beautiful!!

Hough returned to a favorite designer, Jenny Packham (who apparently doesn’t hold this incident against her!) for her elegant beaded gown. “Jenny Packham is one of my ‘go to’ designers. It’s very rare I try on one of her dresses without falling in love with it,” Hough tells PEOPLE. “This whole look has a very Ginger Rogers 1930s vibe, with our own modern twist. We ‘blinged’ it out a little with these simple and elegant Aspiri diamond studs.”

Styling advice came courtesy of Anita Patrickson, who says she was excited to contrast Hough’s “strong sleek looks” of late with a much girlier look. “It made me want to see Fred Astaire twirl Julianne around under a starry sky!” she says. “Jules loved it … The green is so gorgeous with her coloring and of course the fabulous shoulders are the perfect focal point for sitting at the judges’ panel!”

PureDWTS Season 19 Media And Interviews After Dance Night, Freestyle Highlights

Good Day after dance night!!! Ready for some media and interviews after the Dancing With The Stars Semi-finals? First, I have to commend and congratulate Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd for a job well done!! They captivated me all season and never gave up! It was like watching a continuation of Sharna Burgess and Andy Dick! Also, Peta proved she can teach anyone while Tommy proved that anything is possible despite hardships and hard knocks in life and that you can still laugh, turn it around, and dance too. I’ll never forget their “Scent Of A Woman” dance the most of all… which will always be one of my favorites in looking back on Dancing With The Stars in the future.

With that said below is a recap and some new interviews. JC Rubio and Allison Holker also talk about the couples strengths and what they can work on for the Finals (in the first Afterbuzz TV video. LOVES them!). Also, there is a fun interview with Len in the second PopTVDotCom interview. You can also visit ABC7 and the Daily Mail for some breathtaking pictures. Note that they dance to the Judge’s Favorite Dance and the Freestyle. Here are a few Freestyle highlights from the interviews…

-Derek has something in mind for the freestyle and will go with what Bethany can excel in.

-Witney says they have some cool ideas. It will be super fun and energetic.

-Val had some moves planned in the beginning of the season and thought he might use them if they made it and she can do it. Adding after listening to new Afterbuzz TV interview: Val wants to celebrate their journey and have fun.

-Sadie has been busting out some moves in practice for the freestyle that she was thinking of using if they made it. She also reveals that she’s wearing tennis shoes, but, then Mark questions it and says they have to consult with wardrobe first.

Lots more below. We’ll add more highlights and interviews as they come out. So keep coming back….

More with these two at Pure Derek Hough as the day progresses.

Dancing With The Stars 10th Anniversary Show, Update On Alfonso Ribeirio

First of all…just a little update on Alfonso Ribeiro. Good Morning America featured some clips of him in rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars from this past week (and from last night?). It’s still unknown whether he will dance or not. You can watch it at this link.

Also, in some other news…. Is Dancing With The Stars planning a special 10th Anniversary Show? According to this blog, there might be something in the works as they filmed a “promo” for it during Dynamic Duo week. Cool if true? I wonder when it will be aired? Thanks to Lori for the heads up!! Check out the blog it has some cool pictures.

Before the show began they filmed a quick promo for the upcoming 10th Anniversary of the show.

ETA: Here is another blog which is featuring some footage of what they performed for the promo. Be sure to read the link for more. Lori thanks…you are on a roll…

Janel Parrish Writes About Dancing With The Stars, Sneak Peek Into Tonight’s Dances

Janel Parrish has written a new blog at People. She talks on last week’s experience on Dancing With The Stars. Here’s a sneak peek for tonight’s dances…

This week we have a paso doble and an Argentine tango. The paso doble is going to be very powerful and passionate, and the Argentine tango is going to be softer and more romantic. It’s going to be fun and I’m really excited.

It’s been a crazy week because I’m back to work on Pretty Little Liars filming my Mona flashbacks for the finale. It’s been a little bit hectic, but Val’s been great about being flexible about my schedule, and we fit in rehearsal times whenever we could.

This week’s theme is “plugged/unplugged,” so we’re all doing one song – a regular version and then we’re doing the same song but an acoustic version. My song is Calvin Harris’s “Blame,” so I’m looking forward to showing two completely different sides of the same song.

Las Vegas Odds For The Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Semi-Finals

The odds makers at Sports Bovada have made their new predictions for the semi-finals of Dancing With The Stars Season 19. Take a look below and see if you agree with them and then let us know what you think in comments.

Alfonso Ribeiro 1/2
Janel Parrish 4/1
Bethany Mota 7/1
Sadie Robertson 15/1
Tommy Chong 25/1

My thoughts: It seems the odds makers have been a mixed bag all season, but, one thing is definite. They won’t budge on their choice for Alfonso Ribeiro being the winner. Although I love Alfonso, I’m not too sure he’s going to win especially with injuries plaguing him. I think it’s going to be between Bethany and Sadie who wins. I also get a really strong feeling on Sadie, but, I will tell you more on that in DonaMadrina and I’s Finals Numerology and Astrology post. As for their prediction for Tommy leaving this week, they are probably right, but, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Janel go instead.

Let’s see what Miss Heidi and Court think….

Heidi: Man, they do this every season – they should just hang it up. All they do is go by the scores. They might have Bethany right – would not be surprised to see her take third. But Sadie in 4th place??? I think that girl is going to give Alfonso a SERIOUS run for his money. She’s a natural, she’s extremely likable – hell, her crying last week made ME cry! I’m almost at the point of calling it Sadie’s trophy for real – but it’s too close. I would say it’s a three way race between Beth, Alfonso and Sadie and that Beth is a distant third in that trio.

Courtney: Alfonso WILL remain in the competition, and he WILL win. I’m willing it to happen :-) Ugh…even the oddsmakers are buying into the Janel hype. I can tell you this much: demographically, I think Sadie is annihilating Janel in terms of votes – I’d stake my life on it. At this point, I think Alfonso & Sadie end up as the final two, regardless – and I pick Alfonso by a slight margin, simply because I don’t trust the judges to not lowball Sadie. I think Janel & Bethany duke it out for 3rd & 4th – maybe Bethany with a slight advantage. I think it would take nothing short of a miracle for Tommy to make the finale.

Sadie Robertson And Mark Ballas Talk To E Online Before The DWTS Semi Finals – Video, Photos

Dancing With The Stars Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas were interview by E Online. Sadie talks of how much Candace Cameron Bure has helped her and more. Video and pictures below. You can also read more on this interview at E Online. Another one of my favorite couples this season…

It’s “definitely going to be a brawl in the last two rounds,” Ballas dished to E! News when he and Robertson stopped by the studio on Friday, where they also chatted about Sadie’s headline-making costumes (for more on Sadie’s Duck Dynasty-approved looks, be sure to watch E! News tonight).

But despite killing much of their competition, Sadie admitted that she’s far more nervous now that it’s down to the final five couples. So who did she turn to after experiencing a memory slip on stage last week? None other than Mark Ballas’ former partner (and fellow conservative star!) Candace Cameron Bure.
