Dancing With The Stars Las Vegas Odds Going Into The Finals – One Of Tightest Ever!

Going into the Dancing With The Stars All Star Finale is a tight one at that. The odds makers at Sports Bovada, have placed their final bets. It’s been an interesting season as they’ve seemed to nail who is going to finish ‘last’ every week. Then again, all season we’ve seen them placing Emmitt Smith at the top to win and well, as you know, he was eliminated last week. So, below are the odds as of right now for who will win the Dancing With The Stars All Stars. I’m in agreement with them this time. I think this is exactly how it will play out….

Shawn Johnson 1/3
Melissa Rycroft 4/1
Kelly Monaco 5/1

Last week’s Las Vegas Odds going into Week 7 to compare:

Shawn Johnson 4/7
Emmitt Smith 5/1
Kelly Monaco 15/2
Melissa Rycroft 15/2
Apolo Anton Ono 17/2

Be sure to let us know what you think and how you would place the couples. Let’s get Heidi and Court’s thoughts on the odds too:

Courtney: No arguments here – I still think it’s going to be Shawn’s to lose, with Melissa & Kelly a distant 2nd & 3rd.  I have a feeling Shawn & Melissa will end up pretty close in scores (and both will likely be near-perfect, unless Tony really whiffs this freestyle), and Kelly will likely trail by 3-5 points.  I’m fully expecting the judges to drop the hammer on Kelly, since I don’t think they were expecting her to last through last week’s elim.  When it comes down to the winner, though, I’m fine with either Melissa or Shawn winning  – although I think overall, Shawn & Derek have been the most creative, the best dancers, and the best entertainers this season.

Heidi: I agree that’s the order they SHOULD be in, but I don’t think it’s a slam dunk by any stretch of the imagination. And these odds guys with the 1/3 appear to think it is a slam dunk. If Melissa gets too far ahead in points – like, say, three – because of Shawn and Derek getting docked again for their quickstep, I think it’s a real horse race. I think Melissa could win this – but her routines will have to be spectacular, and by that I don’t mean all lifts. That said, I’m not convinced at all that the judges will dock Shawn and Derek for the quickstep again. They just don’t have a history of doing that. They didn’t for Mark and Chelsea and I’m sure there are others – probably all on Derek and Mark, since those two are the ones who take risks. They tend to loosen up on their own issues in the finale. Not to mention that I have this sneaking suspicion that Derek and Shawn had the quickstep picked FOR them, as did the others. In any case, Shawn and Derek suffer from the “sure thing” syndrome and I hope their fans realize this. Their biggest risk is that people don’t vote because they assume she’s going to win.  That’s the price of creating AMAZING dances all season long. Not to mention that the producers edits of the packages are going to go OVERBOARD on the sob stories of “Tony’s never won…” and “Melissa and Kelly are such underdogs…” blah blah blah. Unfortunately, that crap works on the average Joe.

Dance Pro Henry Byalikov Vlogs Before The Dancing With The Stars Finale

Dance pro Henry Byalikov is back with a new Vlog and just in time before the finals of Dancing With The Stars. First off, Henry highlights the season and how incredible it’s been. He thanks the show and all of his fans and followers for their support over the season. Then he answers a cool question about how he gets inspired when choreographing a dance number. He also answers a question about what Hollywood musical movie he’d like to remake and be the lead in (fascinating answer and let’s wish him luck!!!)!

Note that this is Henry’s final blog in Hollywood, but, keep sending him your questions because he may continue his Vlogging once he gets back to Australia (I hope so as I have some questions I’ve been meaning to send him too!). So, if you have any questions for Henry, write to him at his twitter, facebook, or his official site.

THANK YOU HENRY! You’ve made this past season that much more fun, enjoyable, and interesting with your Vlogs, talent, and the nice person that you are!

Let’s hope too this special guy turns Pro next season on Dancing With The Stars!!

Pop Candies also asks Tony Dovolani if he’s ready for the finals now on Dancing With The Stars. They ask him which “race” dances the best too (wow, what a question. I can’t believe they asked that, but, I love how Tony answered it).

More at Pop Candies as Tony also talks about giving to the homeless, Santa Claus, and more.

Zodiac Study On The Dancing With The Stars Season 15 Finalists And Their Unions

It’s that time again, Dancettes! As the Dancing With The Stars Season 15 All Star finale approaches, I’m more curious than ever to see how astrology might play a part in the outcome of our couples dancing? Maybe astrology has nothing to do with it or maybe it does? Whatever the case, it’s fun to explore why each person might be the way they are and, furthermore, to see how certain signs ‘combined’ together might effect their performances or unions as they have so far on Dancing With The Stars. Let’s get started and feel free to discuss and elaborate for what you know of people with these signs (including of yourself) and how you might think it has or will help the top three finalists win this competition.

First up, Derek Hough and Shawn Johnson:
Derek was born May 17th. He is a Taurus…the sign of the Bull. People born under this sign are steadfast, sensitive, passionate, and strong individuals. Most of the people born under this sign fit the “bull” and “solid like a rock” scenario in some way when it comes to everything that touches them…from work, creativity, personality traits, and relationships. Pretty much nothing can break them and they are able to accomplish and rise above anything even in the worst or most challenging conditions. We see it week after week with Derek on Dancing With The Stars in so many ways. For instance: if all hell breaks loose on the show and/or he disagrees with the Judge’s, etc, who is the quiet, silent one standing strong and steadfast with a piercing gaze through it all like a “true bull” itself? Yep, Derek Hough!

As for Shawn, she was born on January 19th. She is a Capricorn…the sign of the goat, one of which, will slowly, but persistently, climb until they reach the highest place on a mountain. If you know a Capricorn, you know they are one of the most hard working and “work minded” signs in the Zodiac. Even when they are not working, they still are working in some way. This is not a bad thing. It’s just their nature. To ask differently of them, would kill their spirit as well as expecting anything less from them. So, it’s no wonder why this sign has been deemed as one the most successful of the zodiac. Is this sounding familiar to Shawn Johnson yet …an Olympic champion as well as a two time Dancing With The Stars finalist? Read more..

DWTS Finalists Talk About Their Upcoming Freestyles, What Do You Think They Should Do?

The three finalists have been revealed! Now it’s time to see what’s up for next week’s final dances for what we can find out from their interviews after the results show last night.

In this ET Online interview, Derek and Shawn don’t reveal much. They are excited and just want to head back to the rehearsal studio and start practicing. Tony and Melissa just want to have fun and continue the same trend they’ve been doing all along and come up with the best freestyle. Kelly and Val are so excited. They encourage their fans to keep voting. They just want to have fun.

For more with Derek and Shawn, be sure to visit Pure Derek Hough!! Here is more with Tony & Melissa and Val & Kelly with On The Red Carpet….

Tony isn’t sure about what they will do for their freestyle yet, but, he guarantees they will work the hardest and it will rock! It will also be different and have tricks that have never been seen on the show before. He wants to bring out the “big guns” for this one. He has 15 routines in his head, but, for now he’s just enjoying the moment that they made it.

Val is nervous, but, excited that he and Kelly made it to the finals. He hasn’t come up with a freestyle yet, but, he will by the morning. He will do his best. Kelly says they will put everything out on the table and go for it. She has never easily given up on things. Val names Kelly’s strong suits by saying she has a presence, a story, and a struggle. She’s had her ups and downs and she’s real. She impresses with her raw emotions and interpretations of it. When Kelly is on the dance floor, she really loves to dance. She gives him a big hug at the end.

So, what would you like to see of their freestyles and what do you think they should do or concentrate on?

I hope Derek and Shawn keep going the theatrical and creative route and throw in everything they can including a few gymnastic moves. I hope Tony won’t throw too many tricks in that we see Melissa too pushed like Apolo was this past week in he and Karina’s first dance. Sometimes “less is more”…know what I mean? I hope Val will concentrate on the strong suits he mentioned on Kelly. I think she is a better “slow” dancer. So, I hope he keeps it slow for their freestyle.

Here’s to next week, Everyone! ;) xx

DWTS Elimination Interviews With Apolo Ohno and Emmitt Smith, Some After Thoughts

Some people touch on our hearts and souls all season through and such is true for the two couples who exited Dancing With The Stars last night. I’ll forever remember Apolo Anton Ohno for his “chemistry” with Karina from the time they started to dance to the end. Most of us never felt the “lack there of” with them. They had a powerful, romantic, unforgettable, and intense journey that will bind them forever and one of which we’ll never forget.

Then there is Emmitt Smith who had more class, wiseness, and charm in his little pinky than most of the contestants who have graced this show. I’ll never forget how he would sometimes sing to the songs when he danced and how he would smile, relax, and just enjoy each dance when it came time to hit the dance floor. I also loved how he would relate football and dancing.

So, here’s to Apolo and Emmitt and their interviews after their eliminations!! The titles “Champion” and “Dancing With The Stars All Star” fits them in every way, doesn’t it?!!!! Tom Bergeron was so right when he said we “lost a good chunk of charisma” last night.
