I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko . To view my photography site, see Lisa Kay Photography.

DWTS Season 25, Week 1 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Thanks to Rachel in the comments for the heads up on People’s (early, so we can’t spoil) reveal of the songs and dances for week 1. 😉 Of course, I’ve been on vacation so I’ve not been paying attention anyway. When is the premiere again? 🙂

Okay, so People doesn’t have ALL the dances, but they have a good number. And, as usual, I look at some of these choices and I roll my eyes. Who the hell does Tango in Week 1?? Ridiculous. Of course, if Jordan and Lindsay kill it, it will go one of two ways. It will label him as a ringer and it will handicap him…or it will set him on the road to the finals. I wager it depends on the package and the running order. Hope he kills it. Foxtrot and Cha Cha are pretty standard week 1 dances. Salsa? Eh, it’s fine.

As I say EVERY SEASON, these are not in dance order until you see a dance order under someone’s name. Until then, it’s either alphabetical or just plain random.

ETA: Updated with Phone numbers. NOTE:These were handed out in alphabetical order and are not necessarily indicative of dance order.

ETA2: Via Disney ABC, the rest of the dances have been filled in. Also, get ready for a fun opening number which Judge Len Goodman will take part in.

The premiere will kick off with an exciting opening number featuring head judge Len Goodman and the entire cast of “Dancing with the Stars,” choreographed by the show’s own Emmy-winning Mandy Moore.

ETA3: And this is why I love Cheryl – she always shares when she’s dancing. 🙂

ETA4: I’ve put the dances in order per Tom’s tweet based on a hunch by DWTS fan Claire. Seems like a good hunch to me, but note it could be off base. 🙂 Seems like a good guess, though, since it puts Nick and Vanessa at the top of the hour, Cheryl opening the show, Mark/Lindsey close to the end. Nikki in the pimp spot would be interesting though. Perhaps she’s really good? Or have they designated Artem as the pro who should win this season? Read more..

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

It’s so good to hear from Derek Hough and his thoughts on the new season. Don’t miss more with him at Pure Derek Hough.

PureDWTS Season 25, Week -2: What’s Gettin’ Court’s Goat Today??? Jake T. Austin, Canadian Voting, Married Couples on DWTS

Given that we’re roughly 2 weeks out from the premiere, let’s just think of this as week negative 2 😛 Came up with this post to cobble together odds and ends that maybe weren’t quite enough to warrant their own post, but I wanted to share nonetheless – this may or may not become a regular feature, depending on just how often I’m finding my goat gotten by this show 😛 ONWARD!!!

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, baker, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.

Nick Lachey Teases On Dancing To A 98 Degrees Song On DWTS And More

In a new interview with US Weekly, Nick Lachey teases on dancing to a 98 Degrees dance number on Dancing With the Stars Season 25. His wife Vanessa also chimes in with her thoughts about doing the show. Here’s more….

The ‘90s pop-star revealed that he and pro-partner Peta Murgatroyd may perform a dance number to a song from Lachey’s hit band, 98 Degrees! “You gotta pull out every weapon you have. The 98 Degrees weapon might rear its ugly head,” the “What’s Left of Me” songster, 43, told Us at Planet Hollywood in New York City on Wednesday, September 6. “I can’t believe a 98 Degrees song hasn’t been on the show already.”

The former boy band lead singer also explained that his experience in the spotlight has somewhat helped him prep for the gig. “I mean, I think performing experience definitely helps when you’re trying to play a crowd. But at the end of the day, we didn’t really do much dancing to be honest with you. I don’t feel like I really have any leg up there. I’m coming into this eyes wide open,” he said. “I’m going to work my ass off. I got a great teacher and we’re just gonna go for it and see where it takes us. Obviously, we all wanna win. Coming into any competition, I want to win.”

Lacey also opened up about his competitive nature. “At the same time, I think the competition is really within yourself,” he continued. “You don’t ever want to look back and think, ‘I didn’t give it everything I could have given it.’ If i look back no matter what the result being if I get a MirrorBall Trophy or we don’t, if I can look back and say I worked my ass off, I gave it everything I had, what else can you do? The results will be what the results will be.”

The Charmed alum’s wife, Vanessa Lachey, will also be competing on the talent show, partnering up with Murgatroyd’s hubby, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. “I think the best case scenario is we all make it to the final and then the gloves come off and we get serious,”

I’m excited on these two dancing. To read more, see US Weekly.
