Dancing with the Stars Season 20, Week Three – Let’s Discuss Tonight’s Show!! (Spoilers)

Well, I don’t know about you all, but in this saga known as DWTS, I fully expect Rumer to get a tongue bath whether she deserves it or not, and Nastia/Riker/Willow (or any combination thereof) to get relentlessly nitpicked over something stupid…most likely something they have little control over, like music…in order to make sure the leaderboard changes up again. Anyone willing to take that bet?? :-D

Very nice opening pro dance!!

Already prepping the audience for leaderboard switchup.

What monkey dreamed up Disco Salsa, not that it will matter. Loved her outfit this week and the dance was very good. It was just so weird.

CAI – thanks for giving the money on the bet that some wack judge will complain about something out of a dancer’s control. Just didn’t think it would be Rumer. I expect it to be worse with other contenders.

Gotta cut Charlotte some slack – girl has to work when she has the chance. Charlotte looked very beautiful – but I don’t think Keo is doing her any favors with the choreo.

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. :-)

The Latest Dancing With The Stars Cast Offs To Perform On LIVE with Kelly and Michael Tuesday

Additionally, “LIVE” will welcome various “DWTS” castoffs, both celebrities and professional dancers, as this season of the hit ABC series continues. Stay tuned for more coverage tomorrow!

DWTS Season 20, Week 2 – Dancing by the Numbers

Well, DWTS Season 20 Week 2 is in the history books and it was a pretty good week. There was nothing that made me snort in disgust (from the judges, anyway) and a whole bunch of pretty darn good to great dancing.

But, as usual, someone has to go home on Monday night. Last week I was pretty clear when I said “Either Charlotte or Redfoo” and said my number 1 choice for most likely to be eliminated was Charlotte. I was pleasantly surprised to find that she was safe – most likely by 0.10 percent. No, I don’t believe Suzanne was a real bottom 2. For her to be a real bottom 2, it meant that Charlotte got nearly 10k more votes per million votes cast than her and that Redfoo did nearly that much – and there ain’t no way you’re convincing me of that. Nope. I think that’s highly unlikely.

Now, normally, I would automatically assume that Charlotte was definitely the next to go. But I’m not so sure that’s true. Why? Well, let’s look at all the scores. Read more..

The Dancing Poetry Corner – Jammin’ At The Jamboree

I thought I would share with you how I craft these poems. I take them very seriously, mapping them out beforehand. I work on a legal pad dividing each pair up in sections, including opening numbers, etc. I re-watch the show taking copious notes so it is refreshed in my mnd. I do research if I need to. I often search for synonyms and new ways to express things. I try to keep them close to the theme of the week. I coin words and phrases such as I did in last week’s poem, Mandy Moore-tastic, to emphasize a certain part of the show. I take it and soar into my mind picking my brain for ideas to be creative. Poem titles can come way beforehand. Or as I’m writing the poem. I sometimes come up with ideas as I’m falling asleep, in the shower, anywhere. They have been really fun to do. I hope you are enjoying them. So happy for any comments!

Jammin’ At The Jamboree

The Ballroom was in a frenzy, Jammin’ At The Jamboree
The atmosphere was electric, so much fun for us to see

The dancers were on fire, all were in a Jumbo Jam-A-Thon
Wishing the dances were on view on a Jumbo Jam-A-Tron

The night ebbed on and a special surprise was filling the air
A lady serving her country returned with love and with care

The songs were chosen with special meaning to each pair
The time came to dance, their stories with us ready to share
