She also sent us some amazing photos and videos of the cast from “behind the scenes”. You can read even more on Bindi Irwin at Pure Derek Hough. Be sure to thank Cathy for her time. (((THANKS Cathy)))!!!
What an awesome experience it was to attend the GMA DWTS Cast Reveal for S21 live in Times Square, NYC, on 9/2/15! This was my first time attending such a special event, and it was so exciting and a lot of fun!
Just before 8am, a group of pros and celebrities made their grand entrance onto the GMA plaza, and the audience began cheering for them. Only some of the cast was present as the remainder of the cast had other commitments. During the time up until the cast reveal segment, which was scheduled to air at 8:15, all the pros and celebrities, along with Tom Bergeron, interacted and mingled with the studio audience…talking with us and taking lots of selfies! And it was fun watching them as they enjoyed interacting with one another! At one point we even watched Tony and Louis playfully dancing together, and then Keo and Bindi began to dance together. It was all so spontaneous and so priceless! They all…pros and celebrities alike…went out of their way to entertain us while we stood waiting! The GMA staff also gave us paddles…one that read “ABC GMA DWTS Cast Reveal ” and the other had a perfect “10” score written on it…to add to the overall festivities of the occasion. Shortly later one of the staff came out carrying this season’s MBT…yeah, THE coveted MBT, and what a stunning award it was to see in person! It was awesome to see all these behind-the-scenes moments live! Read more..
Awww, the cast of Dancing With The Stars Season 20 are all smiles for the most part as they arrive for rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars. Take a look at Getty Images to see.
Hey All!! Give a PureDWTS hearty welcome to Nathan from the UK!! Nathan will be guest blogging for us weekly about “Strictly Come Dancing” this season. Below he introduces himself and writes of the differences between our version and the UK’s version of Dancing With The Stars and what we can expect. Nathan has a unique charm and a UK sense of humor. So, watch out! lol THANK YOU, NATHAN! We’re looking forward to your fun blogs every week for Strictly Come Dancing and here’s to Saturday’s Launch Show!
So, Erm, Hello. This is my first ever blog so treat me well you lot haha. I am Nathan, 21 and I am a dance addict. Oh wait …this is Pure not Dancers Anonymous. haha Although Pure is sometimes as good as Betty Ford’s. Some of you may know me as @thengp12 on twitter or as Nathan UK from the comments section down the bottom. I have been a Strictly fan for what 11 years now, since about half way through series 1. I have been a DWTS fan ever since I saw Jennifer and Derek’s Paso Doble on a channel called Watch. This is a channel in the UK that used to broadcast DWTS from seasons 9 to 13. So I will start giving you a flavour as to the couples I have supported on DWTS over the seasons:
Season 13 JR and Karina
Season 14 Katherine and Mark
Season 15 Sabrina and Louis then Apollo and Karina then Melissa and Tony
Season 16 Zendaya and Val
Season 17 Jack and Cheryl
Season 18 Charlie and Sharna then Meryl and Maks
Season 19 Sadie and Mark and Alfonso and Witney
Season 20 Noah and Sharna
Right onto my real passion…Strictly come Dancing! The only DWTS I get to watch on my TV. Unlike DWTS, SCD does not find ways to make me psychotic haha.
So why am I here, you ask? Vogue has allowed me take over Pure once a week to do a Strictly blog. Ooo how exciting. I plan to do this every on Wednesday or Thursday. This is my final year at the University, but, I WILL MAKE THIS WORK. FOR THAT I HAVE THE POWER. 😀
So what are the differences between SCD and DWTS? Read more..
E News talked to Dancing With The Stars Julianne Hough about her engagement to Brooks Laich in a new interview. These two as so cute. Be sure to see the link for a the full interview including a video. Note too that it says her knew show, Dance Battle America, premieres right after Dancing With The Stars on September 14th.
“We’re just enjoying our engagement,” the star of #DanceBattle America shared. “I think right now we’re just enjoying that part. We really enjoy our stages. I think we enjoyed the dating stage and being engaged, so I think we like to enjoy each stage.”
Hough first let the world in on her engagement news after posting an Instagram photo of her hugging Laich shortly after the romantic proposal on Aug. 18.
In a recent post on her blog, the future Mrs. Laich opened up about her gorgeous new ring and how excited she’s been since the special day.
“The ring itself makes me feel very feminine and takes my breath away every time I look down, which I can’t stop doing, by the way,” Hough wrote. “When it comes to taking it off, forget it. I’ll even wake up in the middle of the night to make sure it’s still there!”
She added, “I never thought I’d be the girl sticking her hand out to her friends and screaming in unison but here I am, shrieking all over Los Angeles.”
ABC’s #DanceBattle America premieres on Monday, Sept. 14 at 10 p.m., following the premiere of Dancing With the Stars.
ETA: US Weekly Has a special featured posted on Julianne and her engagement. You can see some new photos of her and Brooks too.
Entertainment Tonight interviewed Nick Carter about doing Dancing With The Stars. Video below. Be sure to read the text version here too. Here’s a little take where he talks of how he has never done “ballroom” dancing before…
Many fans are saying that Carter already has an unfair advantage in the competition due to his years of dancing on tour and in music videos, however, the star was quick to challenge those assumptions.
“Obviously, I’ve danced my whole life, but ballroom dancing is a different thing. I feel like it could teach me something,” he admitted. “To be quite honest, I’ve never held myself at a high standard as far as dancing goes. I’ve always been in an ensemble with the guys dancing as a troop, so to speak. As a solo dancer out by myself, I’m a little insecure about it.”
