I was hoping for some performance shots, but, so far only Photo Ops have come out of the cast of Dancing With The Stars this week. You can click on any of the photos below to see more. So, who had your favorite costume or look this week? I loved them all….but, Nick and Sharna were my favorite. Carrie Ann Inaba’s dress was out of this world for me too! Let us know what you think.
Kristyn Burtt, DivaDarv, Jake Dupree, Suri Serano, and their guest Keo Motsepe talk about Dancing With The Stars Week 3. It starts at 4:10pm Pacific time. You can watch it go down LIVE or after the show if you like in the video below. As always, let us know what you think in comments.
Entertainment Tonight interviewed Paula Deen and Louis Van Amstel last night after they danced on Dancing With The Stars. I loved this part of the interview. So sweet…
“I want Paula to improve each week, that she walks out of this show stronger and happier, and not having to put on a face for any reason other than just being truly happy,” Louis said. “I love you, Paula Deen.”
What a beautiful new blog by Sharna Burgess. She writes of how special last night’s dance was for her and why. Below is more from Hollywood Life. It’s funny. I wrote in Courtney’s rankings how her and Nick’s dance was like an epic movie.
What an amazing night! Though it didn’t start out that way…this week was a really intense week for us. We didn’t get our music cleared ’til late on Thursday so I wasn’t able to teach Nick the routine until Friday. So considering all of the stress and losing two days and many hours of rehearsal, and also Nick’s frustration and the pressure that he puts on himself, I feel like he performed the Viennese Waltz beautifully.
We shared such a wonderful moment tonight where we really embodied the characters of Downton Abbey’s Matthew Crawley and Lady Mary, and for a moment, it felt like we were in a movie scene — not on the ‘Dancing With The Stars’ floor, not competing for a mirror ball trophy, but sharing this moment in time of playing these characters and having so much fun with it.
Honestly that’s truly what dance is for me — being able to step outside myself and who I am, and doing something completely different. Nick did just that as well and really was my true dance partner tonight; he was not my celebrity partner, and he wasn’t someone that I’m training for a competition. He became someone that was like my equal, and it felt awesome on the dance floor to enjoy that experience with him.

Andy Grammer talked with Pop Crush about Dancing With The Stars, rehearsals, Allison Holker last week before they did the Ellen Show. In the interview, he also says he will be dancing to his new single “Good To Be Alive” in two weeks if he’s still around. Lots more below.
ETA: He and Allison also talked with Extra about their top 5 moments last night.
So, below is what we know so far for Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Week 4. Note that the couples dance to their “Most Memorable Year”! The following week is “Switch Up” week. Keep checking back for updates and don’t miss seeing our new Media and Interviews post.
ETA: According to this interview, Andy and Allison are dancing to his new single “Good To Be Alive” for their next dance. DWTSGossip is also confirming.
ETA2: Source says Paula has “Respect” by Aretha Franklin, and that Tamar has foxtrot.
ETA3: Source shared Alek’s song & dance. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m stoked to see him do paso – and I kind of love the sentiment of the song chosen: “Don’t wake me up when it’s all over.” He’s loving the crazy experience he’s had in the last month -Court-
ETA4: True story: When I was little, I thought the ladies singing Tamar’s song were saying “Marmoset there’ll be days like this, there’ll be days like this, marmoset.” Apparently I thought tiny primates had very rough lives. -Court-
ETA5: Alexa’s song seems to be one that people either love or hate. I fall in the latter camp -Court-
ETA6: According to DWTSGossip, Tamar told Wendy Williams that she’s practicing the rumba. Sounds like Val changed the song and dance style yet again. He can’t seem to hang with what he’s handed and that says a lot. ~Heidi
ETA7: George Penacchio confirmed that Bindi & Derek have “Every Breath You Take”. I had heard that either Bindi or Hayes had it, but couldn’t decide which one it made more sense for… – Court-
ETA8: I give up… -Court-
ETA9: Sharna “thinks” they are dancing 6th. Not sure. I’m guessing Bindi goes last and that Hayes goes first. After that, who knows?
ETA10: Some updates on running order – Heidi guessed right on Bindi! And George Pennachio says Alexa’s going first and confirms Nick going 6th. -Court-
Alexa and Mark – Foxtrot (Song: “Mama Said” by The Shirelles)
Hayes and Emma – Contemporary (Song: “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes)

What a great night of TV last night on Dancing With The Stars. The couples talk about it and more in their new interviews. Access Hollywood talked with Alfonso Ribiero too. I loved how he said 6 or 7 could win Dancing With The Stars this season. He named Bindi, Nick, and Tamar as the Top 3 right now. He said all of them need to “keep stepping it up” and “create connection that we’re all going to enjoy.” Right on, Alfonso! Did you enjoy him as a Judge? I thought he did a superb job and so did my Dad.
