Dancing with the Stars Season 20, Week FOUR – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Grab ya kleenex and get ready for “Most Memorable Year” Week. :::sigh::: Anyone else remember the good old days when every single week didn’t have to have a theme?? I do.

Anyway, Vogue has been a workin’ fiend as per usual and the info we have so far on the dances comes from her Massive Media Roundup post….or in Sharna’s case, her blog. Mark and Willow’s dance is from something he said on Afterbuzz, which Vogue will put up as soon as she gets it.

And hey – at least they’re not all Rumbas.

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. :-)

Sharna Burgess Is So Proud Of Noah Galloway – New Blog For DWTS Season 20 Week 3

Sharna Burgess has posted her new blog at Closer Weekly. She runs through the challenging week putting together her and Noah’s Argentine Tango. She also gives us a glimpse of what might be coming for next week’s dance. More below and be sure you read the full blog at the link as she posted some fun “behind the scenes” pictures as well.

I could not be more proud of Noah. He is improving every week and that is key in this competition. We of course have a lot of work to do on his movement if we want to stay in, but just wow! He inspires me every day with how much he wants this. He can be very hard on himself, as he is a perfectionist and can become super frustrated if things don’t go as well as they have before. In truth, last night wasn’t our best run and Carrie Ann was right in what she said. We need that constructive criticism from the judges because it reinforces to Noah the things I teach him. It wasn’t until Noah watched it back a second time that he saw the beauty in what he had done last night.

Moving forward, this [week’s dance theme] is ‘Most Memorable Year’ and you already know that this is usually a very emotional week for most couples. Noah’s story deserves greatness, something epic and worthy of him and what his been through. It is Tuesday and I haven’t yet found what that is. I can feel I’ve put a lot of pressure on myself this week, which is more than I think I have in a long time. I want it to be perfect, to blow everyone away and to have our viewers be taken on a journey with us. Telling his story is important and I have to stop myself from getting emotional while trying to create. It ain’t easy! We have [to perform a] contemporary [dance] this week and, if you don’t already know, it is one of my faves! :) Our song is just amazing! It is beyond perfect for Noah and what we are trying to achieve. I can’t wait for you all to see the finished product.

Lastly my loves, I want to thank you soooooo much for the incredible support for #TeamShway! Without you guys we wouldn’t still be here. All the love you shout out to us is seen on social media and it gives the both of us so much joy to know all of Noah’s hard work is paying off. We will keep working out butts off and hopefully… we can take #TeamShway all the way! :)

Suzanne Somers Writes On Dancing With The Stars Week 3

Suzanne Somers almost got a banana stuck where on Tony? LOL! She is a hoot.

I loved my Carmen Miranda-style costume. What girl wouldn’t want to wear it? Tony designed it for movement. I thought it was fantastic. The hat was heavy, but I was most worried being thrown through Tony’s legs that I’d get a banana in his crotch.

Competitions are fierce. I had that dance nailed, performed perfectly in rehearsal, but all that counts is performance, and I did miss a step. I actually appreciate the judges’ comments. Compliments are hard won, and I don’t need any special coddling.

I feel very proud that I’m out there on that dance floor. My objective is to do my best each week, and I look forward to next week for another shot. We have a big surprise for next week. Really fun!

Be sure to read her blog in full at People. There is a lot of exciting things happening in her life.

PureDWTS Season 20, Week 3 – Power Rankings

Well, the warm fuzzies and pleasant surprises I had from the judging last week have left the building – and now we’ve moved on to the “completely inappropriate and actually rather offensive” stage of the competition, where every other thing out of the judges’ mouths seems to be insulting, irrelevant, or just plain mean.  Even after last week’s spiel about bullying, Charlotte got told she was stupid, and it was implied that Riker danced like a girl and Allison danced like a dude.  Oh, and Mike got nitpicked to death for the third week in a row.  “Do as I say, not as I do”, huh judges?

Bittersweet seeing Charlotte go.  I was glad she got to stick around for another week, and aside from the fact that her rumba didn’t have a whole lot of rumba, I still enjoyed it and thought it was her best dance yet; but I think Charlotte may have mentally checked out a bit after the nasty critiques she got in week 1, so it was probably time for her to go, anyway.  If nothing else, she looked FANTASTIC tonight – loved that color on her, and love big, tousled Brigette Bardot-inspired hair :-)

1.) Riker & Allison – Well, I already thought Riker was a contender after week 1 – but I think this week his real debut, because that salsa screamed “Yep, I’m here, and I’m hungry – take heed, Nastia & Rumer!” And despite Len hemming and hawing and trying to claim that Riker “isn’t the best dancer this season”, I daresay he’s certainly the best male contestant, and bested at least Nastia in terms of technique this week – so he’s quickly inching his way up to the top.  He never missed a beat in this salsa, which was actually the first piece of choreography I’ve seen from Allison on this  show that made me sit up and go “Ok, that was cool.”  And good lord, that girl can spin fast!  He sold it well, he made it his, and he kept time – if I had one complaint, it might be that he seemed a bit stiff in his hips and didn’t “flow” through the movements as fluidly as he could have, but I also partially blame Allison for that, simply because her choreography was a bit more staccato.  Overall, he nailed it, though. …Read more
