Dancing with the Stars Season 22 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year again and who knows what kind of funky will go down this season. Will Derek finally hang up his DWTS shoes? Will Artem get hosed again in favor of the ever annoying Val? Will Sasha finally get his chance? Will Sharna continue to follow in the wrong footsteps, making unwise statements? Who will take Allison’s spot? These questions and more will hopefully be answered soon. 🙂

I don’t want to hear about Jenna being dance captain. I think that is likely decided among the dancers themselves and I doubt it has any significance in regard to the show – maybe she’ll be a pro, maybe she won’t. Derek and Julianne’s dance captain was someone you’ve likely never heard of. So what?

Kristyn Burtt claims that the pros have been told rehearsals start on February 22 – it remains to be seen if that is true or if it actually happens. Last season was so…fluid…that we’ll have to wait and see. I do think we’ll start to hear stuff from those with a lack of ability to keep their mouths shut. 🙂 There are some Derek fans that worry his media sweep happening next week will include an announcement about his status. The media sweep is because of Disneyland 60 – if an announcement happens, it will likely be that he’s out. If he says nothing or hems and haws, it might be that he’s in. He’s a tough call, as usual Read more..

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Karina Smirnoff, Sasha Farber, Anna Trebunskaya, And More To Dance In “Agent Carter” Season 2

Stay tuned for Episode 8 of “Agent Carter”. Entertainment Weekly is reporting Louis Van Amstel has choreographed a dance that will be featured. Not only that, several pros from Dancing With The Stars and other dancers will be performing. Read on for details. I don’t watch this show, but, I may have to watch this episode.

Here’s the deal: “Episode 8 ends with a cliffhanger where Peggy and Jarvis [James D’Arcy] get in big trouble and are knocked out,” executive producer Michele Fazekas tells EW. “Episode 9 begins with a dream sequence that starts in black and white — by the way, [Atwell] was made for black and white. She looks like Rita Hayworth. She looks spectacular.”

Then, in true Wizard of Oz fashion, everything goes into color, leading into a full-on Broadway musical dance number that features an original song from lyricist David Zippel and composer Christopher Lennertz, in conjuction with executive producers Tara Butters and Fazekas.

Choreographed by Dancing with the Stars’ Louis van Amstel, the sequence features a number of pros from DWTS, including van Amstel, Dmitry Chaplin, Karina Smirnoff, Anna Trebunskaya, Sasha Farber and Damian Whitewood. Dancers Robert Roldan, Malene Ostergaard, Amanda Balen, Serge Onik, Jenya Shatilova, Lacey Escabar, Alla Kocherga and Paul Kirkland also join them.

Dancing with the Stars Season 21 THE FINALE Night Two – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Who’s going to win!! Not too much longer till we find out. 🙂

Because it’s the finale, it’s really important you remember the rule below:

NOTE: DO NOT POST ONE LINER COMMENTS AND CONTINUALLY REFRESH THE PAGE!! It’s the finale – breaking the rules might get you temporarily banned. The traffic is too high for this. Please walk away from the computer for a few minutes after commenting so others have a chance without the site shutting down. Thx.

T-minus 30 minutes…

LOVED the opening number. Made me get in the Christmas spirit.

Alfonso is rooting for Bindi…and the staging in the Ballroom is hopeful. Don’t disappoint me DWTS.

Holy crap, this show is two hours long?? CRAP.

Kim and Hayes seem like eons ago, actually.  She has less rhythm than I remember. Music is live since the just screwed it up.

I still love you, Victor, you little ball of fun hips. 😀

Haha Tom Bergeron!!

Hayley makes a damn good Maryanne.

That “Carlos, yer gonna die, hahaha” from Alek KILLS me every time. 😀

I see two male pros that I don’t recognize, and one female earlier. Who are these people?

So, Victor redid his dance with the sombrero and it actually stuck this time. 🙂 But did he fall down? I turned away for one second. I was watching Bindi and Derek on All Access.

Andy Grammer singing “Right about now” – great job. Love that song.

Bwah – Gary made those outtakes. Then when his dance is starting him looking at Anna going “WHAT??”

LOVE THIS SONG “Xs and Os” I think it’s called?

Seems like Alexa and Mark’s Breaking Bad dance was danced with more confidence by Alexa this time around. I dug it.

Gary is the reason why little kids cry when they see Santa. 🙂 Loved that bit – Gary as Santa, Paula as Mrs Clause and Victor as an Elf. 🙂

Congrats to Mark Ballas and BC Jean! I think they have a hit on their hands. I’m seriously addicted to that song “Roses and Violets”.

Andy Grammer and Chaka Kahn?? Perfection.  And I love all the dancing going on on this finale – actual BALLROOM. Take notes Rob Wade – there is no reason the whole season can’t be like this.

Okay, the fusion.

First is Nick, who had a rough transition to Salsa and she didn’t really fuse the dances – they actually stopped right in the middle and switched styles.

But of course, Julianne is going to stand up and rave with OTT praise.  It’d give it a 28 or 29, but I imagine it will get a 30.

Lindsay: “Cuddle, cuddle, cuddle, let’s friken dance” LOL

Notice how Alek and Lindsay switched styles without stopping the dance? Pretty damn good. Better than Nick.

I suspect based on what Julianne just said, that they’re leveling the scores tonight, that whole “We have to remember this was 24 hours..”  Okay forget I said that, they just lowballed him. He actually danced better than Nick did.

Bindi makes me fucking cry in her package for a damn ChaCha AT!! This girl!! Unbelievable.

Nick actually has a very good singing voice. Like this song. Showing highlights from all three couples. Very nice.

THIRD PLACE – Alek Skarlatos. I think that 6 point deficit did him in.

And the winner is…

BINDI IRWIN!!!

I have to say, Bruno and Julianne lifted Bindi up…even Sharna and and Nick cheered for Bindi. And Bindi almost gives Tony a concussion with the Trophy.  I’m crying.
