Media And Interviews With Jake T. Austin and Jenna Johnson After Their Elimination On Dancing With The Stars
After the elimination last night on Dancing With The Stars, Jake T. Austin and Jenna Johnson talked E Online. They are disappointed, but, they are glad they were partnered together. You can listen to the interview below…
Here’s a E News report as well….
Here they are with ET…
Stay tuned. We’ll post their Good Morning America interview as soon as we can and anything else that might come out on them.
ETA: No coverage of them on GMA today sadly.
Below are the Pro Numbers which were featured on Dancing With The Stars Week 2’s results show tonight. Weren’t they amazing? The dance with Maks, Derek, and Cheryl was just stunning…EMMY MATERIAL! THANK YOU TPTB for bringing them back like this!! I’m so so happy!! This show just added more depth to it that it was lacking before. Thanks to @Idolxfactor1 for recording.
The other two dances can be found in the Playlist at IdolXfactor.com.
Here are some You Tube versions:
Don’t forget, the site rules apply tonight as well. 😉
Figured I would do a new live blog so we can talk all the cheesy goodness here separately from the cheesy sorta goodness from last night. 🙂
I would like to start this post with an ode to Derek’s pants (and hair) from last night. “Oh jeans you’re cut so well, you hug that fine….”
I’m not a poet. I just know what I like. 😉 Read more..
Sharna Burgess has written a new blog at TV Guide. She couldn’t be more proud of her Dancing With The Stars partner James Hinchcliffe and their dance last night. Now they are about to find out who will be eliminated and she’s sad thinking about it. Here is more….
I could not be more proud of James and I as a team for what we were able to do in such a short space time. We only had a day and a half to get this dance together and on top of that, we had some added complications. We were supposed to do a specific scene from The Walking Dead, which had been cleared by the network, and then late on Tuesday AMC pulled clearance on the song! So most of my Tuesday was spent trying to find either a new song with a new dance style, or another TV scene that had Paso Doble. All of which were impossible to find, given the time that we had! In the end,we found a song that sounded like The Walking Dead and we were able to do something that was inspired by the show.
I watched it back and I feel like James absolutely killed it. He was such a dominating male role in that number. Especially with three very tall, fantastic dancers dancing next to him. I still on Tuesday have no idea what our dance is for this coming week, but we are headed into our results show right now to find out who is going home first. It is really sad to think that the eliminations are beginning and we’re going to start losing people. It always sucks to say goodbye to anyone that is a part of this cast and this family, however I think we all grew a lot closer because of the things that happened last week. In a weird way, all of that brought us all closer. I do not want to see anyone go home. I certainly do not want to see Ryan go home, but I know that that is the name of the game. Hopefully James and I did enough last week and this week to be able to stay on for a bit and win fans’ votes, and ultimately take it all the way.

Apparently, Calvin Johnson and Lindsay Arnold’s Dancing With The Stars Week 2’s dance almost didn’t happen. Thank goodness it did. Here is more from ET….
While chatting with ET on Tuesday, Arnold explained that the former NFL pro was “bummed” when producers originally told him he wouldn’t be able to portray his favorite TV character.
“When they asked us what TV show we wanted to do, we submitted Family Matters, and that was the only one we were interested in doing — we really wanted it,” she confessed. “Calvin loves the show and I loved the song, so we were really pushing for it. But then on Monday, when they usually give us our music, we got ‘I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.'”
“I immediately called them and was like, ‘What happened?'” she continued. “They were like, ‘We’re so sorry, we couldn’t get the song cleared.’ That actually happens all the time. There are times where you will literally have taught your celebrity the entire routine, and then they can’t use the music anymore, so you have to switch up your routine. Thankfully, it wasn’t too late in the game.”
The next morning, Arnold headed to her creative meeting, where she started to let the crew know what she was envisioning for the costumes, lighting and set for the Popeye-themed performance.
“I walked in and they go, ‘Lindsay, we have a surprise for you, Family Matters cleared!'” she dished. “I was obviously so excited, but then in my mind I said, ‘OK, erase everything you just did and start completely brand new.’ It was perfect for Calvin. I’m so glad we were able to do that one!”
To read on the extra work they put into the dance to make it happen and more, see ET.
Well, seems there was a bit of protective scoring going on – were we right to be worried about Terra? In any case, she did a great dance, she was just a bit overscored.
Unfortunately for Jake, Maureen had a good, nostalgic dance and Ryan overcame his protesters (and the heart shirts a bunch of people wore will likely touch hearts as well, and Amber is still dancing with Maks. I would be STUNNED if Maks were ever the first one out. Your pro won’t win you the show, but he should prevent you from being first out. Read more..
I really do have kind of a love-hate relationship with TV weeks – and really, theme weeks in general. They’ve brought us some really good dances, and they’ve brought us some pretty craptastic dances. And a whole lotta awkward sh*t in between – this is what happens, kids, when you try to force a certain song to fit a certain dance, or try to force certain costuming to fit a certain dance, or a certain dance to fit a certain theme, etc. There was definitely some awkwardness last night that I would blame primarily on this week’s theme – I feel like Amber & Maks, Jake & Jenna, and Rob/Vanilla & Witney kinda got played by their assigned themes, while I commend Calvin & Lindsay and Babyface and Allison for making their theme work for them…particularly the latter, which I’ll get into more later. Also a lot of time wasting at the beginning of several of the dances, which seemed to be a pretty across-the-board thing, so I guess I can’t complain too much – although I will say some pros utilized the time wasting more than others.
And while I think the distraction of the protesters last week may have somewhat blurred any potential agenda by the judges, I felt like we really saw that agenda take shape awfully clearly this week: Laurie is the chosen one, and anyone that poses a threat to Laurie needs to be nitpicked, criticized, and underscored to protect her. I think the only other celeb that escaped the judges unscathed besides Laurie was Terra, which is also somewhat problematic, which I will get into later; but why give a dance straight 8’s and then don’t explain ways in which it can be improved upon? If it’s truly perfect and you aren’t going to give any negative feedback, give it 10’s. If you’re not giving it 10’s and you’re not offering up suggestions for improvement…something’s rotten in the state of Denmark.
Not sure if I’ll do another round of power rankings later tonight/early tomorrow or not (for next Monday’s elimination), as I’ve got some other things going on that are going to make the next 24 hours very, very busy for me, but for now…I guess take these as my predictions for who is going home tomorrow night, and I might just do an update tomorrow evening after we boot the first celeb. …Read more
Peta Murgatroyd reviewed Dancing With The Stars Week 2 on Good Morning America today. She thinks Laurie and Val have a lot of potential to win the season. She thinks Rick and Emma are going home tonight (I wish they gave her more time to talk on the others). More below including a report on Ryan Lochte and how he is bouncing back. Thanks to @Idolxfactor1 for his speedy recording.
