PureDWTS Season 19 Week 5 Interviews, Some Dances Revealed For Week 6

What a night again on Dancing With The Stars. I loved so many of the dances…though the judges were all over the place with under scoring and over scoring. Let’s see what the couples thought. Below are their interviews and a recap with ABC7, Afterbuzz TV, Access Hollywood, and PopTVDotCom. You can also read on some backstage interviews at Glamour. Note: from these interviews, so far, we learn that Mark & Sadie have a rumba next and Mark says they have a beautiful song. Artem and Lea have a Salsa. Val & Janel have a Samba. Witney won’t say what her dance is with Alfonso, but, mentions “Pitbull” when asked about it. Lastly, Peta and Tommy have a Foxtrot. Hopefully, we’ll find out more on the other couple’s dances soon. One more last note and from ABC7: Pitbull is the guest judge for next week.

ETA: You can listen to a review by Candace Cameron Bure on GMA at this link if interested. She also names her top 5.

ETA2: According to Antonio’s instagram, he & Cheryl have a salsa. Thanks to Lauren for the heads up.

ETA3: If you head to E News, you can hear Mark and Sadie talk on their dances last night. Mark raves about Derek and how much he helped Sadie. They mention Bethany too and how much she killed it. Lots more at Pure Derek Hough as well on these four.

Also added below are some interviews with Extra.

DWTS Season 19 Week FIVE!! Let’s discuss tonight’s show! (Spoilers)

I will not be able to watch DWTS Live, but I may get a stream – we’re having tornadoes here and, obviously, I may have to leave the computer.  Cross your fingers.

Again, DWTS wants us to pimp the livestream so….you can view Lacey’s Stream on our site, just click the link.

Once again, comment to your hearts contents, as long as you remember the show night rules. Some of you were VERY bad at this last week. If I see any repeat offenders this week, you might find yourself on moderation.

  1. Our server gets totally hosed when people sit at their computer and click “refresh” constantly. Post a comment, then walk away for five minutes so that others have a chance…and so that Courtney and I can actually post on the site. :-)
  2. THIS SITE IS NOT TWITTER. Do not post like you are on twitter. You get one warning and then I put you in time out. :-) We need context and content. Believe it or not there are a lot of people who don’t watch the east coast feed of the show, so they don’t know what the hell you’re talking about when you post a comment that says, “Boy, that sucked.”  If you want to say “____ and ____’s dance was not good at all, crappy choreo” that’s fine. That would be context. It is good. :-D  Remember, if you post five one liners in five minutes, you’ve broken rule number 1. ;-)

I’m here!!  Thanks god for the men in the opening number. Was starting to get worried about yet another bump and grind. I’m no prude, but that gets old after a while.

On the plus side, maybe this was Jesse J’s one performance for the night and her only bias is someone else singing her song while Janel dances.

God Val, put on a shirt. You ain’t all that. Same to you, Artem.

Antonio is dancing first??  He’s screwed.

Okay, that wasn’t fabulous, but it wasn’t quite the trainwreck I expected. DT says that he and Allison got along really well.

Team Badie!!!  How hilarious. I think I would kill Mark if he made farting noises every time I bent over. :-)

Bethany and Mark Hip Hop…I think I liked it. I’m not sure actually. I like the Hip Hop to be a bit harder I think. But she has the right look, the make up.

I love how Derek hangs over the balcony to hear what the judges are saying. He’s so involved.

Gee….I wonder who they’re saving their 9’s for…. :::gag:::

That’s two weeks in a row that Bethany has gone early.

Wow…I’m sensing an agenda.  Jonathan wasn’t that bad, I didn’t think.  Maybe I’m missing something, but I thought that was his best dance yet.

Like how, before Jonathan danced, that Mark straight up called them out for hosing him on scores. So, what’s the deal? Is someone they want to go far doing poorly in the votes so they need to widen the margins?? I guess we’ll see when Janel dances. :-)

Speaking of Janel – saw a bit of her routine on the red room cam and it looked like a freestyle with a bunch of lifts.

Alfonso freakin’ killed it!!  Sure, he can’t do it like Derek did with Kellie, but he’s not a professional. Fantastic! I loved it!! Jules is going to hose him on the score though.

WTF?!?!?!?  8s??  AREYOUKIDDINGME!!!

Hahaha…Derek on All Access telling Sadie not to watch Janel and Artem’s package. Then told the kids to look away from the screen during the dance. LOL  Derek: “Is she rubbing him? That’s SO inappropriate.” In Derek’s ‘I’m being funny’ voice.

Thanks god for Julianne – and I guess she would know Burlesque. Anyway, she made up for Beth’s 8s with that one. :-D

Okay, perhaps they’re going to finally give Sadie a score she deserves?? That’s where all the 9’s and 10’s are??

Uh oh, another storm line….

I can’t help but like Michael. :-) Man can’t dance but he’s fun as hell.

Loved Tommy as well.

Sadie KILLED it, but why do I think she’s going to get hosed yet again in scores??

Yep…hosed yet again. You couldn’t throw the girl one ten?? WTF??  Derek calling out the judges – you go boy.

Yeah…Janel and Val don’t play at showmancing. Nope. Nosiree. No showmancing here.

I love Lea, but if that dance scores better than Sadie’s I’ll be pissed. And then I’ll be worried she’s not getting the votes.  Seriously, it was a good dance, but it wasn’t markedly better than either Bethany or Janel.

Okay, we can count on Julianne again to be a downer. In this case that might be a good thing.  If CAI goes higher than 8 I might have to fly to LA and slap a bitch.

So, CAI seriously thinks that Lea’s dance was better than Bethany’s and as good as Sadie’s?? She’s been on crack all night. She should consider rehab.

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. :-)

Karina Smirnoff Hurt In Rehearsals For Dancing With The Stars

Poor Karina! Let’s hope she’s going to heal up soon! From TMZ….

Sources close to the show tell us x-rays show she didn’t fracture anything, but just in case … producers are scrambling to find a replacement. Karina’s already been voted out, but she still performs in each show.

So sad I'm not able to perform tonight on the show. Got hurt yesterday rehearsing. Now, some TLC and I'll be back stronger then ever!

DWTS Janel Parrish Writes On Her Switch-Up Dance With Artem Chigvintsev

Janel parrish has written a new blog at People about her switch-up dance with partner Artem Chigvintsev. She writes that she’s “channeling her inner bad burlesque girl”….

I think we all miss our partners, but Artem and I get along really well. I’m having an amazing time. All we do is laugh when there are little bloopers. I actually posted an Instagram video last Thursday because all we did when I messed up was just laugh! Our partners, Val and Leah, are also dancing together as well, so we peek in on their rehearsals. We’re like, “Oh, you’re cheating on us! That’s great. Well, we’re going to go dance sexy together! How does that make you feel?”

We’re dancing burlesque this week! I saw the movie Burlesque a few years ago, and I always wanted to do that just because it’s super sexy. It’s a dance that makes a woman feel like a woman. Burlesque is probably the most similar to the jive that I did, but it’s very different from all the others. The other dances I did were a lot more graceful.

I think it’s going to be an amazing dance. There are some hard tricks where I get thrown in the air, and I’ve never done anything quite like that before, so it should be interesting. But it’s fun! I really enjoy it. It’s going to be a really, really fun dance, and I’m hoping to channel my inner bad burlesque girl!

More at People.
