You can see a picture of Sadie Robertson’s new costume for the America’s Choice dance at E Online. It’s just stunning. A must see!!!
In honor of Dancing With the Stars’ “America’s Choice” week, E! Online gave fans the responsibility of choosing Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson’s costume for tonight’s show. All season long, Sadie’s looks, which all must be approved by her father, Willie Robertson, have been a major topic of conversation amongst the ABC reality hit’s fan base, so getting to choose her latest outfit is a pretty big deal.
So which design won? With 58 percent of the vote, the sweetheart neckline option topped the one-shoulder dress. And we’ve got your exclusive first look at the winning costume in all its glittering, fringed glory!

Janel Parrish has written a new blog at TV Guide. Below is what she wrote on their two new dances for tonight on Dancing With The Stars.
This week we have two full dances, which has definitely been a challenge. Val and I have the quickstep, which was America’s choice. They got to choose everything we’re doing – the costumes, the end, how it begins. They voted that they wanted Val to bring the beard back, so he’s bringing back the beard! And they voted on our song, so we’re dancing to “Hey Boy, Hey Girl.”
I’m so happy with all their choices. It’s going to be really cute. At first, I was really worried about the quickstep, but now that we’ve started working on it, I think it’s going to be really fun. I can tell that my ballroom hold has gotten a little better since we started, so I’m a little less stressed out about it than I thought I was going to be at first.
The second dance is a trio, and we’re doing that with Keo Motsepe, so we’re calling it our “trio with Keo” and it’s going to be a salsa. We all have a trio and it’s up to us to decide how we go about that. We’ve decided on a really sexy kind of tribal salsa dance. It’s going to be really cool.
The quickstep is going to be really cute and fun and playful, so I’m looking forward to that since we haven’t had that in many dances, and the salsa’s going to be raw and sexy and kind of animalistic, and I’m looking forward to that as well.
More at TV Guide with her thoughts on last week’s dances and more.
Alfonso Ribeiro chatted with TV Guide about his groin injury. It’s still an issue, but, he still thinks he’ll be able to give 85% with it tomorrow night on Dancing With The Stars. Here’s some takes about it and his new dances with Witeny Carson (and Lindsay Arnold)…
What’s the latest with your injury?
Ribeiro: I feel like I can’t do 100 percent. I can’t get it to that next level. I feel like I’m delivering 85 percent rather than 100, because I know that if I go harder then I’m going to injure it more. I have to give it half energy until performance night, and then I turn it up. The difference is that, anytime you do something where you don’t have the ability to know what that turning up feels like ahead of time, when you get on that stage for performance, it’s unknown. So there’s a little bit of discomfort in that. … When you have a tear in your groin, it’s not comfortable to take steps.
What are you and Witney working on for this week?
Ribeiro: We have two dances this week. We’ve got America’s Choice, where America went online and chose the style of dance and the song that we’re going to dance to. So, they chose the foxtrot, and we are doing it to “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head.” And then we have a trio dance, where Witney and I decided we would go with [troupe member] Lindsay Arnold. … Witney and Lindsay grew up together dancing in the same studio. They’ve known each other since they were 6 years old. So, it was an obvious choice for us to pick her. Their dance styles are very similar. It almost will look like you won’t know which one’s Witney and which one’s Lindsay during the routine. We are doing the paso doble. It’s a really strong dance, and great energy for me to have, to kind of be the man in the situation.
Are you feeling pretty comfortable with both of them?
Ribeiro: I did the flamenco, and a lot of the steps that are in the flamenco are also in the paso. … I feel really comfortable hitting those steps and it’s really strong, so I feel really positive about that one. But [Thursday] we kind of had a breakthrough on our foxtrot. We haven’t done a lot of ballroom in-hold dances, and the foxtrot obviously is in hold. And I had a breakthrough [Thursday], so all of a sudden now I’m actually feeling really, really good about both of them. I said to my wife, it’s going to be a good mix, because the dances are so different. The energy and the style is very different, and I think it’s going to be a really good night for us.
