Dancing with the Stars Season 19, Week 5 – Who’s Dancing What….and When? (Song Spoilers)

Wow, everyone is getting a tiny bit hosed this week in terms of either song or style – in some cases both. Except for Janel of course. The pimpage increases – do wish they’d quit trying so hard to make her happen and just let the show evolve more organically. All you screamin’ Val fans whining and crying about Derek asking Colbie to sing while he and Beth danced can STFU now. Not only did she get a dance very close to what she’s trained in, she got the artist singing for her this week (rumor, anyway) – and that artist is also guest judge! Much more preferential treatment than Derek going to a friend and asking her to sing. I expect that the hypocritical among you won’t be satisfied, regardless. Too bad, so sad.

Actually, giving Lea “Broadway” is pretty obnoxious too, considering that she just had contemporary – but I think she could use two good weeks in a row. She’s not getting the pimpage that Janel is. I like her a lot and think she has a lot of potential. Unfortunately, doing Broadway doesn’t really give Val the opportunity to fix her posture problems that she’s had in ballroom/latin numbers.

Rumor going around that Joey Fatone is singing Jonathan and Peta’s song – for reals? Too much weirdness for me this week. :-)

ETA: Mike and Antonio…the latter is totally screwed, I’m thinking. What a craptastic song.

ETA2: So, they won’t show Tommy’s “salute” on camera, but will give him songs which heavily imply the same? :::rolls eyes:::

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. :-)

DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Russell Wilson Said He Would Do Dancing With The Stars If….

Isn’t this an interesting instagram posted by Karina Smirnoff last night(see below)? Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, says he’d do Dancing With The Stars if they win the Superbowl this year. Note too how recently Russell said “no” to Dancing With The Stars, but “yes”, to a future season. He was also seen at rehearsals this season. We better keep a special eye on this one for Dancing With The Stars Season 20 and I’m dying for another football player to dance, are you?

So….calling out @dangerusswilson “if I win this year’s #SuperBowl, I’ll do next season of @dancingabc #DWTS” ~R.Wilson. Ok-Should we hold him to it?!?!

DWTS Season 19, The Partner Switch!! Who Got Who? GMA Announcement Blog

Yep, almost missed this. Someone turned my alarm off. :::cough::: Which means I have to take a shower right now and risk missing something again. Gotta go to work, ya know. Real job. :-)

Anyway, watch this space…. :-) Out of the show, now I’m impatient. :-) I guess I’ll go comb out my wet hair. Isn’t this exciting?? :-)

Okay, they just said “8:21″ – I might have time to get dressed. :-)

Here we go…

(I didn’t realize Tony comes in miniature)

Bethany – Mark
Lea – Val
Sadie – Derek
Janel – Artem (Burlesque)

Alfonso – Cheryl
Antonio – Allison
Jonathan – Peta
Michael – Whitney
Tommy – Emma (Mambo)

So, How does the reality compare to our Predictions, keeping in mind that our “predictions” were based on real research?

Question for you: Are TPTB finding a way to eliminate the spammers or just doing whatever the hell they want?? Because the numbers I saw, even with a huge margin of error, didn’t result in these pairs. Not all of them anyway.

Question 2: Giving Janel Burlesque seems like a pretty strong PIMPAGE move. Agree or disagree??

PureDWTS Season 19 Week 4 Guest Poem: “Memory Books Of A Dance”

What another fabulous new Dancing With The Stars poem from Lois!! Here she is with “Memory Books of A Dance”….

MEMORY BOOKS OF DANCE

Chapters in a book, chapters of life, a memorable year
Representing inspiration, loss, big breaks, lots of fear

Each year memorable and engraved in a Memory Book
Each dancer giving their dances their own special look

The opening, introduction to the Memory Books of Dance
A rousing, resplendent, razzle-dazzle, celebration stance

MEMORY BOOKS OF DANCE

Tears were shed, emotions flowing as an underground spring
Tissues pulled out of tissue boxes, memories were everything Read more..
