Julianne Hough’s Photo Diary For Dancing With The Stars Week 6

If you head to People, you can read about how Julianne Hough and her style team put her look together for Dancing With The Stars last night. You can also see some back stage photos. I thought she looked amazing as always last night. What did you think?

“We wanted something strong and clean with a little edge,” Hough tells PEOPLE. “Kaufman Franco is one of my favorite designers — the sexy simplicity that surrounds each dress is so dramatic and I’ve had so many amazing red carpet moments with them. We loved the cutouts that were subtle but a little rock ‘n’roll. I felt bold, sexy and elegant.”

The coolest part, though? The out-there beetle-bedecked handpiece she sported [below]. “[I loved] the amazing hand piece by the ridiculously talented jewelry designer Daniella Villegas,” she says. “Quite simply, she’s an artist. Sitting on the judges; panel I use my hands a lot and so it’s a really fun, incredibly unique piece of jewelry that’s eye catching and perfect for TV!”

Stylist Anita Patrickson says of the memorable jewelry choice: “We knew we we wanted something simple yet striking for the accessories and we were undecided until I sent Dani a picture of Julianne’s dress the morning of the show. Within 5 minutes she came back with this idea. The hand cuff was a surprise and she only saw it an hour before she had to be on set. I hadn’t wanted to get her hopes up in case were couldn’t get it in time. When she saw it and her face lit up, it made all the stress completely worth it!”

What a fun night of dances last night. Let’s get right to some media after the show. Below are some new interviews with ABC7, Access Hollywood, and Afterbuzz TV.

PureDWTS Season 19, Week 7 – Team Dances REVEALED!!! *SPOILERS* & POLL

It’s super early, and I’m tired, so I’m just gonna cut right to the chase – the teams for the team dances are…

ETA #1: Updated with songs for both teams.  Methinks this should level the playing field a bit…

ETA #2: Added two polls to see how things stack up…

Team Alfonso (song: “Time Warp” from Rocky Horror Picture Show):

Alfonso & Witney
Sadie & Mark
Antonio & Cheryl
Tommy & Peta

Team Bethany (song: “Black Widow” by Iggy Azalea feat. Rita Ora):

Bethany & Derek
Janel & Val
Lea & Artem
Michael & Emma

It sounds like the team dances are freestyles once again, and they both have Halloween music.  One team has “Black Widow” by Iggy Azalea feat. Rita Ora.  This is all I know right now.

My thoughts? The teams are far more evenly-matched then they have been in previous seasons, but Team Bethany probably has the edge by virtue of having 2 trained dancers and Derek; on the flipside, I think they also ended up with the weakest dancer currently left – Mike, so he could be a bit of a liability.  Funny how one team ended up with 3 male celebrities & 1 female celeb, and the other team ended up with 3 female celebs & 1 male celeb.

Discuss.

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

I can’t believe we’re already at Week 6 – and we’ve had a whole bunch of mediocre dancing with a few standouts.

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. I’m serious…the one line comments with no context were ridiculous. Use dancers names – not everyone is reading in real time. It was bad enough that Courtney couldn’t get on the dashboard.

  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. ;-)

 

OKAY, our first spoilers of the night are that the Team Dances are next week!! And Paso Doble is on the table. :-)

Feel like I’ve seen this opening dance before…like, every week. Gee, look how fast those male pros disappear.

Okay, Tommy is SAFE…while Janel and Jonathan are in jeopardy. I don’t expect Janel to leave tonight, but I do think this is a harbinger. Although…the DWTS twitter did tweet about a “shock”.

I guess they just couldn’t bear to give Jonathan ONE 9?? That was a pretty damn good dance.

Anyone still want to argue that Val and Janel aren’t playing showmance?? I mean it was only their whole package, after being put in jeopardy. Anyone ready to deny they aren’t trying to get the shippers on board? (Both TPTB and Val/Janel themselves?) ::::crickets::::

Got distracted and didn’t see all of Janel’s dance – will have to go back to see the whole thing. 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. :-)

DWTS19 Week 6 Sneak Peek Of Sadie Robertson’s Costume For Tonight

You can see a sketch of Sadie Robertson’s Rumba costume for Dancing With The Stars tonight at E Online. It looks like another beauty. So pretty.

We’ve got your exclusive first look at the outfit the 17-year-old realty TV star will be wearing tonight in the sketch above. While we’ve yet to hear Willie’s thoughts on the look, at least we know what Sadie thinks of her latest DWTS dress!

“I feel like a ballerina in it,” Sadie exclusively tells us. “It’s so beautiful. I love it.”

Designed by DWTS costume designer Daniela Gschwendtner, Sadie will wear the dress during her Rumba to “Diamonds” by Rihanna with partner Mark Ballas.

New Interview With Julianne Hough On Judging Dancing With The Stars And More

Thanks to a heads up from Lori, below is Julianne Hough with The Morning Mashup. Julianne talks bout being a judge on Dancing With The Stars and how hard it can be sometimes. For instance, what the viewers sees at home, isn’t necessarily what the judges are seeing LIVE (Very true). She also talks about her dogs, singing, and more. So cute. Great interview.

Cheryl Burke Interviewed On New Dance With Antonio Sabato Jr., Her Possible Last Season On DWTS

In a new interview with TV Guide, Cheryl Burke talks about whether she’s coming back to Dancing With The Stars. Right now, “it’s still up in the air”.

As of now, it’s still up in the air if I’m coming back or not. Contractually, my contract is over and there’s other opportunities that have been out there for me,” Burke, who has been on the show consecutively since Season 2, tells TVGuide.com. “Will it most likely be my last season? I would have to say yes.”

She continues: “It’s so hard for me to talk about this, because I owe my life to Dancing with the Stars. They’ve changed my life completely. They’re my family and it’s always hard to say goodbye … to a bunch of people that really believed in me from the start, and continued to believe in me for the last 10 years.”

You can also read on a sneak peek of Cheryl and Antonio Sabato Jr.’s dance tomorrow night. I hope we see even more improvement from last week.

What are you guys working on for Monday?
Burke: Monday is Latin night, so we have salsa. We’re trying to incorporate other dances. We’re trying to loosen him up a little bit. Pitbull is judging, so we want to make sure Pitbull appreciates what we’ve done. We’re trying to make it sexy. We’re trying to have that same chemistry that we always have on the dance floor. … It’s Week 6 and everyone is tired, but now you have to be able to really mentally stay strong. This competition is like Survivor, but for dancing. It’s like, how can you get through this? And having the switch-up and coming back to each other, I think we’re starting to really appreciate the way we work.

More at TV Guide including Cheryl’s thoughts on last week’s dance, the judges, and more. Also, check out the Daily Mail for some new pics of Cheryl at Mario Lopez’ birthday party.
