Pop Candies TV Catches Up With The Houghs, Bethany Mota, Peta Murgatroyd, And Sharna Burgess After DWTS
I can’t help posting these. Pop Candies Tv was able to catch up with the Houghs, Bethany Mota, Peta Murgatroyd, and Sharna Burgess after Dancing With The Stars last night. Note how there will be more dance wars on Thanksgiving.
Okay, for those of you claiming scores don’t matter, this should be a lesson to you. Yes, this is me saying I told you so. Including you, John. There was a little more than 5k between Bethany and Janel and Janel had the second lowest combined score. It is VERY possible that Janel got fewer votes than Bethany and still advanced to the finale. This is why the overscoring crap actually works. Another lesson? That once again huge, young fanbases don’t necessarily vote. Although Bethany did FAR better than many younger celebs dancing on the show. Closer to Zendaya than Cody.
Now I have ten bucks that Janel is going on tour. Talk about yer motive for the pimpage. Good thing I’m not buying tickets. I would like to see Mark sing though – dude, call me and let me know what you hook up.
Anyway, fairly sure that they were called safe in actual order, particularly since Beth was eliminated and Janel was in the real bottom two – loved the shock on Val’s face. Yes, it is that rare that he makes it farther than Derek, despite having a ringer every season except one. Totally called the bottom two, unfortunately. Wrong person went home, but that’s how it goes sometimes.
I suspect that they were also ranked in order of how they will finish by the judges. …Read more
What a night for some Freestyles on Dancing With The Stars and once again, the new HQ photos show it. Feast you eyes on these. To see even more photos from the night, see Getty Images.
So, which Freestyle do you want to see for an encore tonight? Bethany and Derek’s for me!!
How about some Post Finale media for starters today? First of all, don’t miss visiting Pure Derek Hough for new interviews with Derek Hough and Bethany Mota. They talked with ABC7, Access Hollywood, and more. You can view their new Afterbuzz TV interview below. Note how both talk about what’s next for them. Derek plans to enjoy a little break and then come back and get creative again. Hmmm, I wonder what for?
Also, did you all take note during the show last night that Val Chmerkovksiy and Emma Slater have been added to the new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour? For tickets and Scheduling, see this link.
The are also a few pro changes in the Ballroom With The Twist shows too. You can Read more..

ZOMG guise Janel r hurt! Janel didnt getz enuf rehursul tyme! O the humanatee!!! Seriously, felt like the lolcat sympathy hour for awhile there, with everyone reacting with such horror at poor Janel and her rib injury and lack of rehearsal time. Nevermind the fact that Alfonso has been injured FOR WEEKS, or that all of the contestants this season have outside commitments. I took Tavis to task almost 2 months ago for complaining about not having enough rehearsal time – you best believe I’m an equal-opportunity chastiser, and I’m gonna take Janel to task for it too. You don’t get to sign up for DWTS, knowing you have another commitment, and then complain about how little rehearsal time you have. Bethany & Derek made do with 7 hours for one dance. Suck it up, buttercup.
All that aside – tonight was a pretty strong night for just about every dance. Probably the strongest freestyle round, across the board, that we’ve seen in awhile, with everyone committing 100% to their dances. I don’t think anyone struggled with showmanship. Judges’ choice round could have been a bit better, but overall I think everyone did ok. Tomorrow night should be interesting, though – with only 3 points separating the leader (Alfonso) from the third place (Janel), they really are kinda throwing it to the fans to figure out – and while I’m pretty sure I know how things will shake out, the fact that they did a real bottom 2 tonight will probably whip some fans into a voting frenzy. How convenient.
As for Bethany – she should’ve stayed. Even though she fumbled a bit on her jive (dumb bed), I thought her freestyle was spot-on and was her strongest dance yet. Sorry to see her go – she seemed to have finally blossomed. But I think she and Derek went out on a high note, and can take pride in what a fantastic job they did this season. …Read more
Once again, comment to your hearts contents, as long as you remember the show night rules. Also, for tonight, I’ve turned on comment moderation which means your post won’t show up immediately. At the end of the season we always seem to have an influx of trouble makers. Even MORE important that you don’t hit refresh constantly.
- Our server gets totally hosed when people sit at their computer and click “refresh” constantly. Post a comment, then walk away for five minutes so that others have a chance…and so that Courtney and I can actually post on the site.
- THIS SITE IS NOT TWITTER. Do not post like you are on twitter. You get one warning and then I put you in time out. We need context and content. Believe it or not there are a lot of people who don’t watch the east coast feed of the show, so they don’t know what the hell you’re talking about when you post a comment that says, “Boy, that sucked.” If you want to say “____ and ____’s dance was not good at all, crappy choreo” that’s fine. That would be context. It is good. Remember, if you post five one liners in five minutes, you’ve broken rule number 1.
Power rankings will be coming up later tonight and the final “Dancing by the Numbers” should go up around noon eastern time tomorrow. Just FYI.
Artem, you ain’t all that. Love how the camera cut away before he could get his shirt all the way off.
And of course, production completely blows the start to Bethany’s dance, throwing her off. Jaysus people this is the finale. WTF is wrong with you?? Read more..
Below is Val Chmerkovskiy and Janel Parrish talking with Access Hollywood about Dancing With The Stars and if they win. They also talk on their freestyle…
