Today, Derek Hough danced an Oscar salute on Good Morning America. He was spot on and in his element as always dancing with weather girl Ginger Zee. You can watch him opening the show up below. To see more fun coverage which includes more videos and pics of him dancing and rehearsing with Ginger, see Pure Derek Hough. A must see!! Special thanks to The Vocal Vault You Tube….
Isn’t it fun to see the kind of bonds that form between celebs and pros each season on Dancing With The Stars? This was definitely apparent in a reunion that took place at the boardwalk in Venice, California yesterday when Gleb Savchenko and Ingo Rademacher got together for breakfast. If only we could have been there to see what kind of stories must have taken place. Ingo called Gleb a “goofball” in one of these takes, but, I have a feeling Ingo has plenty of that trait himself. lol Good times. For more, be sure you see each of their instagram accounts.
Last night, Dancing With The Stars pros Karina Smirnoff and Cheryl Burke graced the Red carpet at the 22nd Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party in Los Angeles, California. They looked so beautiful. You can view lots of new photos at Zimbio Pictures and Getty Images.
Hey Everyone! What song selections would you like to see the pros or the couples dance to on the new season of Dancing With The Stars? If interested, post all of your ideas and music wish lists in comments! You never know, they might be helpful or inspirational to the Pros or the new Band for the new season?
Ok, here are a few of our music ideas and wishes….
The Monster – Eminem ft. Rihanna
Show me – Kid Ink ft. Chris Brown
I’m A Freak – Enrique Iglesias
Shine My Shoes – Robbie Williams
You Rock My World – Michael Jackson
Not A Bad Thing – Justin Timberlake
Anything by The Gotan Project (for Latin dances)
Don’t Tell Me – Madonna
Let It Go – Idina Menzel (from the movie “Frozen”)
Happy – Pharrell Williams
Animals – Martin Garrix
Drink a Beer – Luke Bryan
“Gypsy” by Lady Gaga (would be a fantastic freestyle or contemporary song)
“Love Me Again” by John Newman (great for a cha-cha)
“Make Me Lose Control” by Eric Carmen (an oldie but a goodie – would be great for a rumba if they ever resurrect 80s week!)
“I Wish” by Cher Lloyd feat. T.I. (one of my guilty pleasures – might be fun as a samba)
“Feel Good” by Robin Thicke (another good cha-cha)
“Sunglasses at Night” by Corey Hart (I’ve wanted to see it used for a paso doble for 3 years now!)
As you know from a previous post this weekend, Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff attended the “united4: good and Variety Magazine Present “united4:humanity” event at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California. Thanks to @Dee_upclose22 for sending, you can see her talking about the charity, giving back, and being sweet to each other. Amen Karina!
DWTS Peta Murgatroyd, Cheryl Burke, Karina Smirnoff, Maks Chmerkovskiy, And More Attend Oscar & QVC Parties, Etc
Peta Murgatroyd looks like a princess! Last night, the Dancing With The Stars pro attended the QVC 5th Annual Red Carpet Style Event. Cheryl Burke and Anna Trebunskaya also attended the event (see pic below) in some really cute dresses. If you’d like to see more photos of them, visit Getty Images and Startraksphoto. Derek Hough was suppose to attend this event, but, so far, we haven’t seen any photos. He may be too in deep getting ready for the GMA Oscar Tribute for Monday?
Also, Maks Chmerkovskiy attended Kari Feinstein’s Pre-Academy Awards Style Lounge party at the Andaz West Hollywood in Los Angeles, California yesterday. You can view some new photos of him at Getty Images.
We missed posting new photos of Tony Dovolani attending the OK! Magazine Pre Oscar party. You can view some new photos of him at this Getty link.
It’s also fun to see former Dancing With The Stars pro Kym Johnson again. She attended BritWeek Oscar Party this week wearing a yellow dress and a black silk jacket. So cute!
Lastly, isn’t Karina Smirnoff a vision again? She was seen enjoying the night out at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood, California in a black backless suit (does she not have one of the best backs?). So pretty! You can view more gorgeous photos of her at Zimbio Pictures.
And that is all…for now! 3 more days until the Dancing With The Stars cast announcement (not counting today)!~Vogue xx
Hollywood Life has been known to get a few of their rumors right and sometimes not. Anyway, check out what they are reporting on Sean Avery (who we’ve reported about before), Tim Tebow (rumored in Season 14), Ray Lewis (now there is a name we haven’t heard yet) and Stuart Scott (another new name).
Sean won’t be the only athlete competing on season 18 – Tim Tebow and Ray Lewis have also been asked, HollywoodLife.com has learned.
Tim, who was the quarterback for the New York Jets and the Denver Broncos, does have a good amount of free time, so it’d be surprising if he passed. Ray is a famous Baltimore Ravens alum who we’d also love to take the dance floor. Also on the list is ESPN analyst Stuart Scott, who could talk us through it all!
More at Hollywood Life including names we’ve already reported about…Bruce Jenner, Sharon Osbourne, Juan Pablo Galavis, Cody Simpson, Kelly Brook, and Carla Hall. Let us know what you think!
Also, if you haven’s seen our new twitter findings, be sure you read this post too if you haven’t yet. It’s a must read!
Isn’t it fun to see the cast of Dancing With The Stars do some Red Carpet events again? This past week, Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba attended a Sally Morrison & LoveGold Celebration to honor Academy Award Nominee Lupita Nyong’o at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California. I’m loving this dress and she is wearing the perfect shoes too. You can view more fun photos of Carrie Ann at Zimbio Pictures. Photographer: Gabriel Olsen
Doesn’t Miss Karina look stunning? Jim will have a fun wake up call today. Last night, the Dancing With The Stars pro attended united4: good and Variety Magazine Present “united4:humanity” at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California. You can view more gorgeous photos of Karina at Zimbio Pictures. Photographer: Frederick M. Brown
ETA: USA Today talked with Karina at this event about Brooke. Karina also mentioned she doesn’t know who her new partner will be on the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Below is a take….
“Brooke has become not just our friend, but she’s our family. When you do an interview with her, you feel like you’re not on national TV,” she told USA TODAY at Thursday night’s Unite4:Good gala in Los Angeles. “We will definitely miss Brooke. I hope she visits us.”
Erin Andrews is the new DWTS’ co-host, but the dancing stars have not been announced. Smirnoff says she doesn’t know who her partner will be.
“Producers know the dancers talk,” so they don’t give us information, she says. “We’re all one big dysfunctional family.”
Last night, several of our pros from Dancing With The Stars attended OK! Magazine’s Pre-Oscar Event! From what we can gather so far, Gleb Savchenko was there along with his former Dancing With The Stars partner Lisa Vanderpump. Maks and Val Chmerkovksiy were also in attendance. You can view some new photos of Maks and Val at Getty Images. Photo below is courtesy of Gleb’s instagram. Adorable and it’s so good to see Lisa and Gleb together again. I’m also glad to see Gleb is still in LA being his wife Elena flew back to Australia yesterday. Can I entertain the thought that he might still be a part of Dancing With The Stars Season 18? *sigh and still hoping* All I know is I will always be a fan and nothing is final until Tuesday.
ETA: Gleb will be teaching a master class at LA Ballroom Studio on April 11th. If interested in attending, see LA Ballroom Facebook. They also have some new pictures of he and Elena dancing this week at their studio at this link.
