Dancing with the Stars Season 23, Week 4 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

I’m a little bummed out after this past Monday’s show and Tuesday’s result show, if I’m being honest. I’m not sure where that feeling is coming from. It just felt so freakin’ manipulated and REALITY Show-y if that makes any sense. From the stealth cameras recording every move of every contestant, to the attempts to elevate some couples at other couples’ expense – it’s all just tiring. Let these people dance and have a good time (and let us have a good time) and judge the actual dancing for god’s sake.

And now, this week, we have a brand new theme week tailor made for their designated winner of the season. Cirque week. Maybe it’ll turn into Shark week yet again. Joy. Anyway, according to Maks’ blog, they are tangoing to Zumanity and he doesn’t seem entirely pleased about it. I kinda feel his pain. Yer kinda screwed no matter which way you go.

ETA: Just Jared Jr has posted the Cirque du Soleil shows for each couple. They’ve also given dance information for the Results Show on Tuesday. More below…

On the results show on Tuesday (October 4), DNCE will perform their new single, “Body Moves,” and there will be an all-male dance number in which the male pros of “Dancing with the Stars” perform to the song “Ain’t No Sunshine.” In addition, Derek will choreograph and dance to a special number.

At the end of the night, the third elimination of the season, based on combined viewer and judges’ scores from October 3, will take place.

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. :-)

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Writes Of His Dances On DWTS Week 3, Previews Next Dance

Maks Chmerkovskiy has written a new blog at Entertainment Weekly. He writes of his dances this past week with Amber and Val. He also gives a sneak peek into his next dance with Amber (sounds kind of strange). Read on….

On the routine with Val from last night…

We were given this incredible opportunity by the producers. This was one of the main reasons I wanted to be back on the show, to get to flex those creative muscles. As soon as we knew there would be the “Results” shows this season, we pitched this idea of “The Maks & Val Show” hijacking DWTS, using this massive million-dollar set we have. There’s nowhere else we’d have the opportunity to do this, so we were excited about it.

The biggest thing was working out the script, and making sure people weren’t “uncomfortable” with us speaking on the show. One of the producers at the last minute was like, “Is this even a good idea?” and rightfully so — I wouldn’t give me a live mic! [Laughs.]. At the very last second, Val went up and asked Vanilla if he wanted to be part of the gag and he was totally into it.

But the end result was a great routine. I’m glad for the opportunity because we really wanted to tailor something specific to this set. On the “Maks and Val” tour over the summer, there was a segment where I’d pull someone out of the audience, so we wanted to find a fun way to integrate that into this. True story, the lady in the audience did not know what was happening, but it worked and I think she was into it!

Everything we heard afterwards was so positive, and that it was fun, high energy. And that’s what makes something like this successful, how genuinely happy we are to be able to do it.

On next week’s theme…

Next week we’ll be doing some kind of Tango, and integrating “Zumanity.” Now, “Zumanity” is cabaret, and all about sex and sexy things, so am I going to have to make a Tango that’s conservative? That’s definitely not going to happen. We’re taking steps forward each week, and Amber’s not struggling physically in any way, so I don’t think we’re going anywhere. It’s obvious to me that Amber is consistently getting better, and I can’t wait for the time when we finish the performance to a standing ovation and for Amber to finally have her moment.

DWTS Emma Slater And Sasha Farber To Show Their New Home On ET And More

Fox has such a sweet story up of Dancing With The Stars Sasha Farber and Emma Slater. Apparently, Emma told reporters that she wants to marry Sasha. She also spoke on their new home. Here is more….

Longtime “DWTS” professional dancers Emma Slater and Sasha Farber are now living together and she told reporters after Monday’s show that she wants to marry him.

When FOX411 boldly asked if they are going to get hitched, Slater replied, “I would like to. I feel like it’s soon. I’ve been hinting pretty heavily and if you tell all your girlfriends to go tell and him [that] I think I was ready for marriage now, then I think that’s a pretty strong hint. He probably gets it.”

Slater, who is British, and Farber, who is a Russian born Australian, are both competing this season; Slater’s partner is former Texas governor Rick Perry while Farber is successfully navigating the challenge of dancing with the show’s first celebrity little person, Terra Jole.

Slater, who previously took her “DWTS” blue collar comedian partner Bill Engvall to a surprise fourth place in season 17, said she and Farber have been struggling to agree on a style for their home.

“Redecorating with someone you’re with can be quite a tough decision because he likes everything modern and I like everything really traditional and English-y, cottagey, that kind of thing,” she said. “But we found our style and love it.”

More at Fox. These two are so cute and we wish them the best. I’m dying to see their new house too which will be featured on Entertainment Tonight in the near future.
