DWTS18 Peta Murgatroyd Writes About Tonight’s Quickstep With James Maslow

So, Peta Murgatroyd has written a new blog at People. She “absolutely believes” in she and James Maslow and that they can make it to the finals. Below is more….

We have quickstep this week, and I just need to make sure we keep nailing the character of every dance and we keep having fun and showing the judges that we are comfortable improving our technique and just not sitting back going for a ride. The judges want to see an improvement in James’s frame.

We’ve been trying to improve so hard this week, and I think if we keep going with all of this and keep having fun and showing how much chemistry we have on the dance floor, then fingers crossed we’re going to make it to the finals. I absolutely believe in us and that we can do it. We’ve trained so hard. We’re in it to win it. We don’t want to come in second. We want to win it.

This week, we have a great party anthem song. It’s one of the best hits of every party that you go to. When it comes on, everyone’s going to be jumping up and dancing. But because it’s quickstep, we have to stay in hold. Although we’re going to have fun and play characters, we’ve still got to have technique.

Candace Cameron Bure Prepares For Party Anthem Week On Dancing With The Stars

Candace Cameron Bure tells People that she’s been working on her self-confidence this week in preparing for tonight’s new dance on Dancing With The Stars. She’s been fighting her nerves for the whole experience. Read on for more and let’s hope she can conquer her demons tonight.

This week was all about building my self-confidence on the dance floor. After last week’s Little Mermaid dance, Carrie Ann said what Mark has been telling me since week two: I need to get my nerves and self-doubt out of my head! I’ve been dealing with nerves through this whole experience, and while I was hoping they’d get better each week, finding my comfort zone during camera-blocking day and the live show has had the opposite effect. I’ve found myself doubting more and more.

Week six is “party anthem” week, and it’s all about having fun and letting go. This seems to be my inner stumbling block, which is actually the opposite of who I am with my family and friends! Mark and I practiced our cha-cha all week, but the real test will be when I get out on the dance floor in front of the lights, cameras and live audience.

I really do feel that my insecurities are becoming a little less important each week, and I’m trusting and believing that my confidence will shine through more and more. As I read so many of your comments, I consistently see, “Just let go!” – and trust me when I say, “I’m trying!” I really am.

NeNe Leakes Talks Of The Hardest Part Of Learning To Dance And More On Dancing With The Stars (New Interview)

TV Guide has posted a new interview with NeNe Leakes. She tells them her “Party Anthem dance with Tony is going well so far. She also talks of why she gets emotional when the judges give her feedback and why. Read on for more….

I’ve noticed that you get pretty emotional when the judges are giving you feedback. Why is that?
Leakes: To me, I just feel like we work so darn hard every week, and I’m just so happy that we get through every week. It’s tough for us. I mean, I don’t have any dance experience. Some of these people have dance experience. I have none. I’m going to do what naturally I would do if I went to a club or something, but I don’t have any [professional] dance experience. So, I feel like it’s extra hard for me, where for some of the other people on the show, they have dance experience, so it comes a lot easier for them. I’m just always proud of myself when we get through. I’m just like, wow. I’m just happy to hear any little nice comment.

What’s been the hardest aspect of the competition for you?
Leakes: The hardest part for me is the technique. Some of these dances have real technique that the judges really look for, like your leg has to be in a certain place, or your arm needs to be a certain way. That’s probably the hardest part. Everything else I feel like can [fall] in place. But when you start thinking about the technical part of it they’re going to score you on — did you have your hand out at that time, your feet were not where they were supposed to be — those are the hardest parts. It’s really hard. I always say to them, “We’re supposed to entertain and have our feet and arms moving at the same time?” There’s just a lot going on. And you have to look like you’re having fun.

What are you working on for this week?
Leakes: This week is Party Anthem Week. We are doing a salsa to Nelly “Hot in Herre.” … So far it’s going really well. I’m really happy. I’m really pleased.

DWTS Season 18, Week 6: Who’s Dancing What…and When?? (SPOILERS)

So, let me get this straight. Charlie, whose partner is likely to be quite good at Jazz and Contemporary, gets both dances, while Meryl (whose partner is likely to NOT be good at either Jazz or Contemporary) gets neither, yet gets to do both Argentine Tango and regular Tango?? Um, sure, she nearly got a perfect score on AT, so let’s give her Tango. Sure. And what’s with all the Cha Cha’s in Week 6?? Really not liking what the theme weeks are doing to the dances.

Anyway, below are the dances. If there is a song listed as “Music Guess” that means that either the celeb or pro gave what appears to be a strong hint.

ETA: Below is my guess on the order. Just a guess – no insider info. :-)

Danica and Val – Cha Cha Cha (Music Guess: “I wanna dance with somebody” by Whitney Houston  )
1-800-868-3403

Meryl and Maks – Tango (Music Guess: “Feel So Close” by Calvin Harris  )

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas And Friends Dance To Pharrell’s “Happy” (Again?), Too Fun

Nene Leakes And Tony Dovolani Go Clubbing To Get Ready For Next Dance On DWTS

I wish I could have been a fly on a wall to see Nene and Tony Salsa-ing it up at a Club in Atlanta this week. Below is more from Nene at E Online on she and Tony’s new dance. Note how Nelly’s “It’s Getting Hot in Here” is their song!!

Oooh, hunni here we go! This week we’re doing a salsa. It’s Party Anthem, so we’re doing Nelly’s “It’s Getting Hot in Here,” and you better believe it, we love Nelly. I think that was one of the hottest party anthems of all time and it still sounds good. If you play it in a club, everybody still gets up and bounces to it.

Oh and we are shaking it, hunni! I’m sweating, I’m telling you. I’ve almost got an afro, my hair has curled completely up! Well we definitely want to portray the party scene, and we also want to touch on the technical of salsa, so there will be a lot of sexy moves and we definitely want to get up and make the crowd feel it, so that’s the plan.

Ooh, hunni the salsa club was amazing! It was a big Latin night out here, and we decided to go, and it was awesome. We saw a lot of moves that I will not be doing. My moves are nowhere near their moves. I mean, they are really working it out. You talk about sweating, oh my god! I don’t know. It takes a lot to do salsa. You are moving your arms, and your hips, and your feet, and I mean you are really working it. and you know, Tony can do any dance in the world, so going to the Latin club was like right up his alley. He loved it!

LOL! I love the way she writes! More at E Online. Thanks to @BridgeC17 for sending!

James Maslow Chats About Dancing With The Stars, The Competition, And More

USA Today interviewed James Maslow about Dancing With The Stars. He was shocked to see Cody Simpson leave last week, but, is proud for how he and Peta received 4 10′s. More below including his thoughts on if he has a chance to win and more.

He’s also putting in five hours a day of dancing rehearsal time. On the show, he has talked about how he was bullied as a kid because he was “chubby.” Although he still is careful about what he eats, he says, “I know how easy it is to go backward.”

Maslow, who attending performing arts schools from eighth grade until he graduated from high school, learned some basic dance steps along the way, but it was “never my forte.” He was more into music and acting.

Although happy with his perfect scores, he says he was surprised by teen pop star Cody Simpson’s exit this week. Simpson, 17, seemed to have a healthy young-girl fan base.

“I don’t feel safe,” says Maslow. “I think there’s a huge audience that’s been watching the show for years that’s not part of my 3 million Twitter followers.”

So far, he hasn’t suffered any injuries. “I’ve done ice baths and seen a chiropractor, but knock on wood, that’s it.”

Of all the stars still dancing, he sees Meryl Davis as his biggest threat. “People are impressed by her. I could see her being the winner.”

It almost seems unfair that the Olympians who have years of dance experience would be allowed on the show. “We’ve all thought of it that way, too but they’re really nice people,”says Maslow. “They’re on tour now and having to learn this while they’re doing that is tough. They’re working hard like everyone else. To me, it’s complimentary that I’ve gotten better scores than professionals.”

He adds, “I wouldn’t be on the show if I didn’t believe I had a chance to win it.”
