Now that all of the pairings have been verified, we want your initial thoughts: who’s your early favorite, and who’s the early favorite to win? Yes, we’re aware that we “haven’t even seen them dance yet!”, but considering that there’s so much more to success on DWTS than how well a couple dances, does it really matter? We just wanna know your first impressions And sometimes, they’re pretty spot-on – just look at the results of last season’s preliminary poll.
So who are your picks and why?
Here we are again with another live blog for an announcement of some kind. This time the cast. We’re pretty sure we already have the cast and their pros, as you may have seen on a previous post, so this should be just a formality. Of course, there’s the possibility that one or two are wrong, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
Okay…let’s watch and see what happens…

The first rule about spoilers is that you do not ask where we got zee spoilers The second rule? If you want to be surprised come Thursday’s cast announcement, whatever you do, DO NOT click the link below. Got it? Gooooood.
We’ll update this post with any additional spoilers that come our way between now & the official announcement. Please, no begging to know [insert pro here's] partner – we take the spoilers we get, and don’t always get to pick and choose what intel we get.
And he thinks it’s a great idea! Gee, what a shock. Not.
Turns out, the pros – in particular, one who was so “wronged” by her – don’t seem all that worked up by Julianne getting hired. In fact, this particular pro thinks it’s great because she’s actually won the show and is a trained ballroom dancer, unlike two of the other judges on the panel. Hell, Mark wasn’t even sure if it was a full time job because, unlike some, he has a life. I can hear it now – “Oh, they’re like family so of course he’s not mad.” Ya can’t have it both way, folks – he was the recipient of one of Julianne’s supposedly controversial comments and he’s cool.
Perhaps some should take notes of a mature, realistic reaction…. Mark talks to Perez Hilton.
Also – listen to the whole video. Mark says he called the other day to figure out his schedule and the producers haven’t finished pairing celebs with pros yet. So, with the exception of those who might have gotten requested, they selected their professional dancers without them having a partner in mind. This seems very unusual.
Most of you might know Allison Holker. She is most famous for her work on “So You Think You Can Dance”. She was a dance contestant in Season 2 and an all-star in Seasons 7 through 11. She started her dance training at only 4 years of age at “The Dance Club” studio in Orem, Utah (the same city where Derek began his dance and ballroom training). She began teaching at the same studio when she was 16. In other accomplishments, she’s performed with Earth, Wind, and Fire at the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2002 Olympic Games in 2002. She also starred in ‘High School Musical’ and ‘High School Musical 2′. Last year, she was nominated for “Outstanding Choreography” in the 2013 Emmy Awards (Heidi’s Note: She was nominated WITH Derek). You might remember the dances below when she danced on Dancing With The Stars in the past and the 2013 Emmy Awards last year. More on Allison at Wikipedia.
As for Keoikantse Motsepe, he was an undefeated South African Latin American Champion in every age category for 8 years. His formal dance training includes Latin American, Ballroom, and Contemporary. He has also performed on South African Idol and in the highly acclaimed dance show “Burn The Floor”. You can read more on Keoikantse at Afridiziak. Videos below.
