Good Morning America had a fun recap and interviewed the eliminated couples (with an exception to Von Miller) this morning (Aww, they are making me cry again). Also, below are the bumpers from last night. Thanks to @Idolxfactor1 for his hard work and fast recordings this week.
Below are some beautiful photos of the cast last night from Dancing With The Stars courtesy of Getty. Who had your favorite costumes? That would Sharna and Antonio for me! Antonio’s suit made me think of Prince (*sigh 🙁 ) and I loved Sharna’s dress and long red hair. I loved Mark and Paige’s fire red costumes too. Nyle and Peta made me think of Angels. Huge kudos to the make-up, hair, and costume departments again! Click on any of the photos to see more.
What another great night of dancing. Some of the dances last night really blew me away. I especially loved Mark and Paige. They were my fave of the night. They brought on the FIRE. I loved Wanya & Lindsay and Nyle & Peta’s dances too. Von & Witney were one of my favorites as well. I am so sad to see them leave. They had the entertainment factor in spades and I’m a new Von fan now. What a run for Sasha and Kim too. They should be so proud for everything they did on that dance floor and I will cherish their kindness and fun approach every week.
Ok, let’s review the scores again….

Onto some media, recaps, and interviews: First, see People, Glamour and ABC7 for some quotes from some of the couples, highlights, and photos. People may have more a little later, so keep checking the link.
WTAE also has a fun backstage report and they interviewed Antonio. Note that Antonio’s coach was there last night.
Also, if you missed any of the DWTS All Access interviews last night, see Stormy’s sites here and here. @Jimmbboe’s twitter account last night was lighting up the masses being Karina was one of the hosts (along with Tony) and she looked beautiful.
It’s time for the Dancing with the Stars Season 22 week 7 and you know what that means. Time to enjoy some friendly, educated banter with the Pure DWTS Insiders. If you’re not a Pure DWTS Insider yet, you can do so here. If you are, then I look forward to the discussion in the comments. Read more..
In case you missed it, George P tweeted the dance order and I have updated the Who’s Dancing post. Based on that, I think perhaps my guess that the entire Men’s team will be called safe might be wrong. I suppose they could still do it, but I’m less certain. 🙂
Here’s to hoping for some good dancing!!
Man, the opening pro numbers just don’t have the pizzaz that they used to have. See seasons 5 or 6 for good examples.
Complaining about your scores is nearly a sure fire way to get Len’s knickers in a twist. 🙂 You can tell Keo is friends with Val and Maks by the opening of that dance. Read more..
If you go to US Weekly, you can see a sneak peek video of the Men rehearsing for their team dance.
“You got to be James Brown,” Von Miller advises his team. And dance pro Sharna Burgess, who is paired with Nyle DiMarco, points out that the squad should be able to give the late Godfather of Soul a run for his money in the showmanship department: “There’s quite a lot of swag just standing in this group right now, though.”
Adds Wanya Morris, “We got Von’s personality, Antonio [Brown]’s smile, Nyle’s ability to make his body move to the counts, my ability to entertain. And if we embody all of that, we are going to win this challenge.”
Below is a new interview with Julianne Hough. She talks on her wedding plans with Brooks Laich. She also answers if she will come back to Dancing With The Stars in the future. Thanks to Abby for the heads up! Read more..
Below you can listen to Nyle DiMarco’s new Vlog for Dancing With The Stars “Iconic” dance night. He talks about how hurt he was last week when people took his comments wrong in his package (sad, I sure didn’t take him wrong. He is not arrogant in the least). He also talks on he and Peta Murgatroyd’s dance tonight.
