Ya know… Conrad Green has received a lot of negativity because of all the changes to the show this season (and the last season), but, I don’t want him to leave Dancing With The Stars. Like it or not, he’s helped to keep this a popular show and I love it even when I’m not happy sometimes with some changes, etc. Here is more from Deadline about him leaving Dancing With The Stars.
“I’m enormously proud of everything we’ve achieved on Dancing with the Stars,” he told Deadline. “This has been the job of a lifetime and I’m thankful for every performance, every dancer and every colleague I’ve worked with over the years, and to ABC and BBC Worldwide Prods. for these past eighteen seasons. What was once a small dancing show has thrived and become a cultural phenomenon. But after almost 10 years, the opportunity to take on a project with the immense potential of Utopia was simply too good to pass up. The ambition and scale of the challenge is thrilling. I’ll miss everyone I’ve worked with on Dancing With the Stars and look forward to this next exciting chapter.”

Below is a new ABC Entertainment Pop interview with Tony Dovolani. He discusses Dancing With The Stars, the judges, what it’s like to work with Nene Leakes this season, and the competition. Note how he mentions he and NeNe have a Fox Trot this week and the Disney character she is playing is perfect for her.
WZRA TV interviewed Sharna Burgess about she and Charlie’s upcoming “Disney” dance. She’s excited and says they are dancing a “Jazz” dance. They also discuss the switch up dance this past week and how she thinks the dance, the judging, and week was a “little off”. If the show does it again, she hopes they can sharpen everything up. Lots more below….

Lois always has a way of summing up the dances every week in her wonderful poems and here she is again…
THE GRAND SWITCH-UP BALL
Welcome to the Grand Switch Up, Come On, Come All
Ballroom doors wide open for The Grand Switch-up Ball
The cards were dealt, the dancers shaken up like dice
Meeting different partners and breaking the dancing ice
The entire cast performed a sparkling dance so divine
Audience roared in approval for the switched-up nine
Charlie and Peta united for a Rumba of grand majesty
Sexy, sultry, stunning, mirror image, a grand sight to see
Danica and Maks Jive, shining, beaming bright light
A kicky, sparky, tricky dance illuminating up the night
James and Cheryl Tango burning hot, fierce, and mean
Powerful, precise, like a passion play that set the scene
Drew and Witney Cha-Chaed, ready and rarin’ to go
Drew was the splendid Sugar Daddy of the Grand Show
Amy and Mark Salsaed to a swingy, shaking Salsa beat
Shaken and stirred, sensational, so special and so neat
Candace and Tony Quickstepped with rocking energy
Grand speed across the floor, a hair raising sight to see
Meryl and Val Argentine Tango, the dance of the night
Magical instruments of perfection, grand seductive sight
Cody and Sharna Foxtrotted with gusto in the Grand Ball
With swagger, with the voice of Cody, giving it their all
NeNe and Derek’s Jazz, a joyous razz-ma-tazzy treat
Quirky perky Beyoncé trip, audience out of their seat
Macy’s Stars of Dance, Derek Hough dynamic creation
Splendid, stupendous stars, Paso, Flamenco sensation
The Grand Switch-Up Ball, dancers mixed up just fine
Next Monday night will return couples to the original nine!
