DWTS Season 19, Week 11 – The FINALE: Dancing by the Numbers!

Okay, for those of you claiming scores don’t matter, this should be a lesson to you. Yes, this is me saying I told you so.  Including you, John. :-) There was a little more than 5k between Bethany and Janel and Janel had the second lowest combined score. It is VERY possible that Janel got fewer votes than Bethany and still advanced to the finale. This is why the overscoring crap actually works. Another lesson? That once again huge, young fanbases don’t necessarily vote. Although Bethany did FAR better than many younger celebs dancing on the show. Closer to Zendaya than Cody.

Now I have ten bucks that Janel is going on tour. Talk about yer motive for the pimpage. :-) Good thing I’m not buying tickets. I would like to see Mark sing though – dude, call me and let me know what you hook up. :-)

Anyway, fairly sure that they were called safe in actual order, particularly since Beth was eliminated and Janel was in the real bottom two – loved the shock on Val’s face. Yes, it is that rare that he makes it farther than Derek, despite having a ringer every season except one. Totally called the bottom two, unfortunately. Wrong person went home, but that’s how it goes sometimes.

I suspect that they were also ranked in order of how they will finish by the judges. …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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 19, The Finale – Power Rankings

ZOMG guise Janel r hurt! Janel didnt getz enuf rehursul tyme! O the humanatee!!! Seriously, felt like the lolcat sympathy hour for awhile there, with everyone reacting with such horror at poor Janel and her rib injury and lack of rehearsal time.  Nevermind the fact that Alfonso has been injured FOR WEEKS, or that all of the contestants this season have outside commitments.  I took Tavis to task almost 2 months ago for complaining about not having enough rehearsal time – you best believe I’m an equal-opportunity chastiser, and I’m gonna take Janel to task for it too.  You don’t get to sign up for DWTS, knowing you have another commitment, and then complain about how little rehearsal time you have.  Bethany & Derek made do with 7 hours for one dance. Suck it up, buttercup.

All that aside – tonight was a pretty strong night for just about every dance.  Probably the strongest freestyle round, across the board, that we’ve seen in awhile, with everyone committing 100% to their dances.  I don’t think anyone struggled with showmanship.  Judges’ choice round could have been a bit better, but overall I think  everyone did ok.  Tomorrow night should be interesting, though – with only 3 points separating the leader (Alfonso) from the third place (Janel), they really are kinda throwing it to the fans to figure out – and while I’m pretty sure I know how things will shake out, the fact that they did a real bottom 2 tonight will probably whip some fans into a voting frenzy.  How convenient.

As for Bethany – she should’ve stayed.  Even though she fumbled a bit on her jive (dumb bed), I thought her freestyle was spot-on and was her strongest dance yet. Sorry to see her go – she seemed to have finally blossomed. But I think she and Derek went out on a high note, and can take pride in what a fantastic job they did this season. :-) …Read more

DWTS Season 19 The FINALE – Night 1!! Let’s discuss tonight’s show! (Spoilers)

Once again, comment to your hearts contents, as long as you remember the show night rules. Also, for tonight, I’ve turned on comment moderation which means your post won’t show up immediately. At the end of the season we always seem to have an influx of trouble makers. Even MORE important that you don’t hit refresh constantly.

  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. ;-)

 

Power rankings will be coming up later tonight and the final “Dancing by the Numbers” should go up around noon eastern time tomorrow. Just FYI.

Artem, you ain’t all that. Love how the camera cut away before he could get his shirt all the way off. :-)

And of course, production completely blows the start to Bethany’s dance, throwing her off. Jaysus people this is the finale. WTF is wrong with you?? Read more..

Janel Parrish Is Hopeful She And Valentin Chmerkovskiy Will Win Dancing With The Stars

Janel Parrish tells People that her goal now is to win Dancing With The Stars. What’s more, she is “hopeful” that she and Val Chmerkovskiy will win….

I’m very happy with the dance the judges picked for us. It’s one of my favorite dances that we’ve done, and one that stayed a little bit under-the-radar just because we didn’t get great marks for it. I’m excited to bring it back and hopefully do it better than I did the first time.

For our freestyle, we’re going to go with what we think our strengths are, which is our chemistry and what we bring to dancing when we’re dancing together. We’re going to keep it intimate, we’re going to keep it beautiful, we’re going to dance the hell out of it and go out with a bang.

I’ve always thought and I still think Alfonso Ribeiro is probably the one to beat, but I do think that everybody that is left in the competition is a very strong competitor. Everybody has worked so hard, and everybody wants it just as bad as the next person, so it could really be anybody’s game. I’m just really grateful to still be a part of it.

I actually feel less pressure going into this week because it is the finale and I’m so proud of all the work I’ve done to make it this far. Now at this point I think any of us can win. I just want to enjoy my last dance on that stage with Val, and enjoy that last moment. I know that I did everything I could possibly do, and no matter what, I got what I wanted. I wanted to enjoy the journey all the way to the end and that’s what I’ve done, so I’m going to be happy with the outcome whatever it is, but obviously I am hopeful that we will win!
