Will Allison Holker Be back For Dancing With The Stars Season 20?

And the fun continues! Happy Thanksgiving, All!!!

For starters today, Allison Holker has written a new blog at In Touch Weekly. She reflects back on the finale and her first season of Dancing With The Stars. The interesting part is that I think she will be back for Season 20 (yay! Love love love her!). Read on…

It’s such a surreal feeling to stand out on the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ dance floor with so many watching — so last night just moments before the show started, I stood on that dance floor and closed my eyes and just listened to the audience screaming and cheering for the show and everything that it brings — which is happiness, hope, and a chance to do something you didn’t think you could do. “DWTS” brings joy and entertainment right into people’s homes, and I am honored to be a part.

‎Thank you to everyone in the “DWTS” family. You’re truly the best. Season 19 was perfect, and I’m proud of all the work we put out, and congrats to Alfonso and Witney on winning the mirror ball trophy!

What’s next? Well, next season is “DWTS” 10th anniversary! And that will be a celebration you won’t want to miss. See you soon.

PureDWTS19 Week 7 Media And Interviews After Dance Night, Dance Info Revealed For Next Week

What an unforgettable night last night! So many great dances and lots to cover! Let’s see what the couples had to say about it in some new interviews below. First, don’t miss heading to ABC7 and the Daily Mail for some amazing photos. Glamour has some backstage fun as well.

Ok, onto the interviews. Note that it’s “Dynaminc Duo” week for Week 8 and the couples also have THREE dances….

-Derek and Bethany will be “Ricky and Lucy” if they can get everything cleared (lots more with them at Pure Derek Hough).

-Lea and Artem have “Bonnie and Clyde” and they mention they will dance to Carrie Underwood’s “Something Bad is About To Happen”. Artem also explains on how the THREE dances will take place next week (be sure to listen carefully to the ABC7 interview).

-Peta and Tommy have “Johnny Cash and June Carter” and they are doing a Paso Doble to “Ring Of Fire”.

-Mark and Sadie wouldn’t say who they are as a “couple”, but, they have a contemporary dance and it will be “beautiful”. Sadie hints that it’s something “she would do”. Mark says it has something to do with “the beginning of time” (wha? Hmm…maybe “Adam and Eve” like some have guessed in comments?).

-Val and Janel are going to be “Romeo and Juliet” and they are dancing to “Everybody’s Free” from the Baz Luhrmann’s “Romeo and Juliet”.

-Alfonso and Witney have “Batman and Robin” and they have a Cha Cha Cha.

-Michael and Emma have a Foxtrot, but, they can’t reveal anything else yet since it’s not cleared. Emma is extremely excited on it if she gets her way with it.

Special thanks to JC Rubio, Allison Holker, George Pennacchio, and Shaun Robinson for doing such an excellent job with these interviews and feeling and getting to the heart of the matter. Be sure to tweet them at twitter and send them some love. Lot’s of great content to take in…

PureDWTS Season 19 Poem For Week 6: “A Latin Love Affair”

Give it up for Lois again. She’s back with another fantastic poem for Dancing With The Stars….

A LATIN LOVE AFFAIR

Definition of a Love Affair:
A romantic, sexual relationship between two people
An intense love or enthusiasm of something

Both were in full array, both a love affair on Monday night!

We have an intense, great American Love Affair
With DANCING WITH THE STARS

LATIN night was a Grand Love Affair in the form of dance

A LATIN LOVE AFFAIR

The opening was a’flame in fiery red, a Pitbull Fireball show
The fires of love burning, dancing girls glisteny and all aglow Read more..

Afterbuzz TV And Sharna Burgess Review DWTS19 Week 6

Ready for another Afterbuzz TV Show? Though first, if you haven’t ranked the couples this week, be sure you do so in Courtney’s new Power Rankings Post. Ok…now onto the new Afterbuzz TV show. This time Sharna Burgess joins the panel in discussing week 6 of Dancing With The Stars. She talks of what it was like working with Pitbull for the opening number (which as you know I love loved!). She also helps to review each dance and tells us some fun “behind the scenes” goodies. Sharna also explains at the end what it was like to be chosen as the 13th pro and how easily anyone can be replaced (that would have been so hard to go through). Let us know what you think as always.

PureDWTS Season 19, Week 6 – Power Rankings

I apologize for this being so ungodly late, but between all of the media and other posts we had going up earlier, a sh*tastic day at work, and some of you just generally driving me to drink, I decided that these rankings could wait a bit.  Side note: if you wanna talk about the team dances next week, go here; if you so desire to vote for the dance styles and songs that the couples are dancing in week 7 (I think), this post has directions.  I’m pretty partial to the idea of Tommy doing a Viennese waltz to “I’d Rather Go Blind”, but to each his own ;-)

After two hours of Pitbull the peanut-butter eating, Spanglish-speaking naked mole rat judging, I still have no idea was “DALE!!!” means.  Oh well – I guess when it all came down to it, he was a halfway decent judge; he saw right through the showmance front that Vajanel put up, and actually knew the names of a few salsa steps to compliment  Alfonso on.  Doesn’t mean I ever want to see him as a judge again, though ;-) But hey, Mr. Worldwide needed a plug for his gig hosting the American Music Awards, so I guess that’s why we got him this week…

…the judging seemed kinder this week, so I wonder if there was a huge backlash from some of the out-and-out cruelty we saw last week and the judges were told to ease up a bit.  Still think Alfonso & Sadie (and now Bethany) are getting nitpicked, while Janel, Antonio, & Tommy are getting babied a bit; Lea and Mike are a toss-up each week.  Will be  interesting  to see if the dynamic of the judging panel changes at all with Len back – wonder if we’ll start to see more complaints about “messin’ about”, and Julianne will suddenly become the “nice judge” now that Len the critic is back.

Jonathan, Jonathan, Jonathan – kinda stinks that he didn’t last longer, but if he had to get eliminated, at least he went out on a high note.  His jazz was probably his (and Allison’s) best dance yet.  Not sure Allison made a strong enough showing to warrant getting asked back as a pro again next season, but we shall see…

1.) Alfonso & Witney – Perhaps not the most “strictly salsa” salsa we’ve ever seen on the show, but I can’t blame Witney for sneaking in some hip-hop to play to Alfonso’s strengths.  Thought he could have used a bit more hip action, but then I have to wonder if Witney tried to keep the steps a bit tight & boxy in order to baby his groin injury.  Still a very enjoyable routine – there was some complex stuff in there, and Alfonso managed to stay on-time and in-step with Witney. He’s still the showman of this season, for sure – and with the way the crowd goes crazy after his dances, I think he’s gonna be around till the end. :-) Read more..
