PureDWTS Season 18 Cast Announcement – LIVE BLOG!!!

It’s finally here, kids – after weeks of speculation about who’s dancing and who they’re dancing with, all questions will be answered in just a few short hours :-) This post is going up the night BEFORE the cast announcement, so be sure to bookmark it, as I will be posting all updates as they occur live on GMA on this post.

Before the fun begins, here are the ground rules:

1.) If you’re watching along and see that I haven’t posted something yet, DO NOT GO RUSHING INTO THE COMMENTS TO POST IT YOURSELF.  It takes time to update this site – especially during high traffic times like the cast announcement, and it only slows us down further when we have a bunch of people spamming the comments with the very same information we’re trying to update with in the main post.  If you do this, don’t be surprised if you find yourself on comment moderation.  You’ve been warned.

2.) Please do not refresh the page every 5 minutes and repeatedly post in the comments “Have we heard anything yet? Have they announced it yet???” When I say this page will be a live blog, it will be a LIVE BLOG – I literally post things as they happen…even the trivial time-wasting stuff that GMA has become famous for in the minutes leading up to the announcement.  If you don’t see it posted, IT HASN’T HAPPENED YET.  Remember – needless spamming & refreshing only slows the site down and delays us even further from posting.

3.) This goes without saying, but if you want to watch the cast announcement in your own time zone and want to be surprised – like, seriously, GTFO.  This is essentially a spoiler post – so if you don’t want spoilers, don’t read it.  Yes, circumstances have arisen in the past that make me feel like I should make this abundantly clear to our readers.  Don’t ask. 😛

Got it? Gooooood.  Now let’s play :-) I’d also like to give a shout-out to Heidi, who is tweeting simultaneously from our @puredwts Twitter account, and Vogue, who is manning the controls over at PureDerekHough and posting news and rumors here before and afterwards.  All Angels on deck – show us some love :-)

9:45 PM EST, night before the announcement: The carefully guarded cast list seems to have sprung several leaks today, as we were hit with a bunch of new names.  If you haven’t already, go check out our rumor round-up and interesting things on Twitter posts to refresh your memory on some of the rumored celebs.  At this point, the only celebs that I personally feel confident that they’re going to be on this season are Meryl, Charlie, NeNe, Drew, Cody, & Diana.  The rest? Could go either way.  As for the potential partnerships – the only thing I know for sure is that Derek is NOT dancing with Meryl.  Please, Derek + Meryl partnership-wishers, get all of the whining out of your systems tonight…because I ain’t gonna have time for it come tomorrow morning. So which celebrities do you guys think are in? And who do you think they’re dancing with? T minus 9 hours till all is revealed :-)

7:00 AM EST: I’m up, I’m up – and so is Tom, who is flanked by Jenna & Lindsay from the troupe. Sasha & Artem are also there, entertaining the audience. They are going to announce both the celebs & the partnerships. Stay tuned…

tomjennalindsay

7:22 AM EST: Nothing so far…but here’s the best pic I could get of Sasha & Jenna jiving to “Happy”:

jennasashajive

7:32 AM EST: Our first clues from Lara: one celeb may be “racing” to the win, and another “may have the force behind him”. Sounds like she’s referring to Diana & Billy Dee.

7:40 AM EST:In case you wanted to know some other current events: Oscar Pistorius is on trial, Robin Thicke is trying to win his wife back, and it’s pretty effin’ cold pretty much everywhere except Florida. Zzzzzzz.

7:46 AM EST We’re allegedly “moments away” from the announcement. We’ve been moments away since 7:00…apparently GMA & I have different definitions for the term “moment”.

8:00 AM EST: Robin said that they have a “full house” over in LA. So clever, those GMA anchors :::roll::: And the “is Derek back? Is Maks back?” has started.

8:01 AM EST Lara’s next corny clue? One celeb “knows how to score…goals”. Probably Sean Avery. I find it hilarious that they really haven’t let Erin talk yet. Who wants some king cake? Don’t chip your tooth on the plastic baby, Robin. I speak from experience. 😛

8:07 AM EST: 10 minutes till the big reveal!

8:18 AM EST: Here we go! Your season 18 celebrities are: Danica McKellar, Cody Simpson, Billy Dee Williams, Diana Nyad, James Maslow, Sean Avery, Drew Carey, Candace Cameron-Bure, Charlie White, Meryl Davis…and that’s it. I’m thinking Derek’s partner is getting revealed at a later date…Robin confirms this.

8:31 AM EST: And the partnerships are: Danica & Val, Cody & Witney, Billy Dee & Emma (love it), Diana & Henry, NeNe & Tony, James & Peta, Sean & Karina, Drew & Cheryl, Candace & Mark, Charlie & Sharna, and Meryl &…MAKS?! Twelfth celeb is Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy, partnered with Derek.

8:37 AM EST: BIG twist this season: at some point in the competition, all the partnerships are going to switch – and America’s going to do the voting. Bet ya anything Maks loses Meryl as a result. Well kids, I’m kinda over thing trying to update this post when I keep getting kicked out of the dashboard…and I have to go to work. Catch you later…discuss amongst yourselves. :-)

11:05 AM EST: Went ahead and put together the height chart for the couples…just cause.  Note that one couple has a much greater height difference than the rest…11″ compared to most other couples being only about 6″ or less in difference.  Just throwing that out there, for the good of the order…why do you think that might be? Discuss. 😉

NeNe Leakes 5ft. 10in. 6ft. 1in. Tony
Meryl Davis 5ft. 3in. 6ft. 2in. Maks
Candace Cameron-Bure 5ft. 2in. 5ft. 8in Mark
Amy Purdy 5ft. 8in. 5ft. 10in. Derek
Danica McKellar 5ft. 4in. 5ft. 8in. Val
Diana Nyad 5ft. 6in. 5ft. 10.5in. Henry
Drew Carey 5ft. 10in. 5ft. 4in. Cheryl
Sean Avery 5ft. 10in 5ft. 5in. Karina
James Maslow 6ft. 1in. 5ft. 7in. Peta
Charlie White 5ft. 9in. 5ft. 5in. Sharna
Billy Dee Williams 6ft. 0in. 5ft. 5in. Emma
Cody Simpson 5ft. 11in. 5ft. 5in. Witney

Dancing with the Stars Season 18 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year once again, boys and girls – time for Pro Watch. :-)  It will be very interesting to see what happens this year, after they let go of the band. That was a huge cost savings to them. The question is: are they looking to save even more money (say goodbye to Derek and possibly Cheryl) or have they saved so much that they can afford the popular, long term pros that have kept people coming back to this show season after season? I personally think that they will do what they can to hold on to Derek – he’s an Emmy winner and that’s very helpful to the show’s cache. I think they will also do their best to hold on to Cheryl, Karina and Mark. I’m GUESSING that Val and Tristan are still locked into contracts that are beneficial to ABC so they aren’t in question as long as they find a partner for them.  As always, I could be wrong. :-) Read more..

ABC Press Release On DWTS Season 17: Elimination Information, 12 Couples To Dance, And More

ABC has released a new press release confirming the Dancing With The Stars Season 17 cast announcement on Good Morning America. As previously reported, the cast announcement will take place on September 4th on Good Morning America. More details revealed below on the hosts, the judges, voting, how the elimination will take place (hmmm, not sure I’m liking this?), as well as how there will be 12 new couples!!! (shew, I’m so glad there won’t be less)

This season’s exciting new cast of “Dancing with the Stars” will be revealed live, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4 exclusively on “Good Morning America” (7:00-9:00 a.m., ET). The competition begins with twelve new celebrities who will brave the dance floor for their very first time. Each week these celebrities will leave their comfort zones and endure hours of grueling rehearsals to master technical choreography and entertaining performances. In the end, only one star will rise above the rest to be crowned champion and win the coveted mirror-ball trophy.

“Dancing with the Stars” returns for Season 17 and shakes things up by transitioning to a one night, two-hour format beginning MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET). Combining the best elements of the show every Monday, “Dancing with the Stars” will continue to feature competitive dance, dynamic group performances and musical guests, all while climaxing to a dramatic elimination. Each week viewers vote for their favorite dancing performance. Each couple will be eliminated at the end of each episode by combining the judges’ scores of that night, along with the public votes from the previous week, which will determine who gets eliminated every Monday night.

Hosted by Tom Bergeron (“America’s Funniest Home Videos”) and Brooke Burke-Charvet (“Dancing with the Stars” Season 7 Champion), “Dancing with the Stars” is the hit series in which celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Cast Announcement For Dancing With The Stars Season 17 September 4th!

Gear up all and MARK YOUR CALENDARS!! According to TV Grapevine, the cast announcement for Dancing With The Stars Season 17 will take place on Good Morning America Wednesday, September 4th!

There was a problem connecting to Twitter.

Woo Hoo! Things are really starting to warm up for the new season now. So exciting!!

And yay, Heidi will be back from her vacation just in time to run a live blog on it. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: Not sure what to make of the later time of the Cast Announcement (as they usually announce it three weeks before the air date of the show), but, Troupe member Julian Tocker has tweeted that it might be part of the new format. Whatever the outcome, all is good. You can read his exact quote here.

Dancing with the Stars Season 17 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year once again, boys and girls – time for Pro Watch. :-) I’m starting it a bit earlier than normal because we’ve gotten confirmation about Derek and a maybe about Maks earlier than ever before, as I recall. While Derek often knows very early, he’s not usually big on sharing – that seems a bit different this year. He’s confirmed he’s back with both the LA Times and Access Hollywood when they asked him. Now, it’s possible that this could just mean he’s open to it, not that he has a partner, but I suspect if he wants to do it, he gets to do it.

Also, at the TCA Summer Tour, Paul Lee, the ABC President of Entertainment, was asked about Maks and he gave an answer that was interpreted by differently by different outlets. No shock there. Access Hollywood said he said Maks “may well be back” and TV Guide said he said “likely” be back – now, call me crazy, but those are actually different interpretations. So, I am going with “maybe likely” as a happy medium. Particularly after last season, when Maks himself was saying he was back and then he wasn’t. And sorry Maks fans – it’s not a sure thing because, contrary to your world view, the ratings didn’t actually go down because Maks wasn’t there – they have been on a constant downward trend for a few seasons now, including those when Maks was present. We’ve been writing about it for a few seasons now, including after All Stars which was down 20% from season 14 – Maks was on both seasons. Sixteen was lower again = downward TREND.

As for the rest?? Well, Lizzie was asking who we wanted Val to dance with this season, but that could well be a “if we talk like it’s true it will become true” PR style. I suspect he’ll be back though. I wouldn’t count on Gleb or Louis…and maybe not even Tony. I really think they need to give Henry a shot, and I expect that both Mark and Tristan will have spots. As for the ladies, I suspect that Cheryl and Karina, and possibly Sharna, are the only sure things. Everyone else seems like they could go either way.

The big question mark for me?? Will there be a troupe?? I suspect there will be, although we won’t see them nearly as much early in the season. Don’t worry, Troupe fans – if what Paul Lee says about a possible return to two shows a week in the spring is true, then all may not be lost.

ETA1 Vogue here with an UPDATE: According to Enstarz, Val Chmerkovskiy will be dancing in Dancing With The Stars Season 17. He not only told them he will be dancing, he also told them his dream partners as well as saying, “I just want a partner who is willing to work and has a strong work ethic” and “You can be a supermodel, an actress, an athlete… but to be a good partner, you have to be willing to put in the work.” Be sure to read the link for more!

ETA2: Chelsie could be “possibly in”. See this post for more details!!

ETA3 Vogue here again: Due to this tweet by Sharna, we suspect she might be “possibly in”.

ETA4 Vogue again: After discussing this with Court and the way she read Sharna’s tweet, we’ve decided together to take out “Possibly In” for Sharna. The pros may be posting optimistically looking forward to season 17 (or the craziness of it, etc), but, that doesn’t mean they are “in” or are “possibly in”.

ETA4: This is sad. I hate to even report this, but, according to US Weekly, Kym Johnson won’t be dancing this season. She tells the magazine, that she has an “amazing work opportunity back home in Australia.” More here. Thanks to Lori for the heads up. Also, Chelsie tweeted of receiving “good and bad news”. We have no idea what she’s referring to, but, we’re changing her status to “unknown”.

ETA5: Karina is IN per @DWTSGossip!

ETA6: @DWTSGossip is also reporting Peta, Cheryl, Tony, Val, and Mark “in” as well.

ETA7: The hits just keep on coming, as DWTSGossip tweets that Maks “will not be returning” for season 17. -Court-

ETA8: The day of the furious pro watch updates continues, as DWTSGossip reveals that Anna & Chelsie are out and that Lindsay & Emma are in…although the “I guess” at the beginning of her tweet seems to leave a bit of margin for error…-Court-

ETA9: And now we have a bit of news on Henry. We think he’s “Possibly in the Troupe” or been “Promoted” because of what was tweeted in this twitter exchange. As Court just wrote to me privately, the problem with the guys right now is that we don’t know if any of the male troupe members are getting promoted. So, Henry may be in the troupe or he may have gotten promoted based on the tweet. In conclusion, we’re going to side with caution and assume it’s the troupe. -Vogue and Court

ETA10 Vogue: DWTSGossip is reporting Sharna is also “in”! She’s also reporting via twitter that she knows for a fact Sasha is not a Pro “as of now”. @Dwtsgossip writes to us that Sasha may very well still be in the running. Also, Tristan and Gleb are not confirmed yet.

ETA11: Oksana is out via Val’s twitter. Though the tweet has now been deleted. So, we’re going to mark her as “possibly out”.

ETA12: Just a little update on Troupe member Julian Tocker. He has tweeted that he won’t be dancing full time because of the new format, but, we’ll still see him around. Sad as it makes you wonder if it will be the same for some or all of the troupe members? Also, and if there is a full time troupe, how many will there be in it?

ETA13: Some good news and some bad news today (depending how you look at it and who are your favorite pros). @DWTSGossip is reporting Tristan is “in”, but, Gleb” is “out” (sad, I was hoping to see him back). So, what does this mean for the 6th male spot left? Will it be filled by a returning Pro (Louis? or did they change their mind and decide to make Maks a pro?), a promotion for a troupe member (Sasha or Henry?), or will it be someone entirely new? Penny for your thoughts!

ETA14: Guess what Kids? @DWTSGossip says she got mixed up and Gleb is IN! YAY!

ETA15: I’m baaaaacccckkkk!! And here to report that @dwtsgossip just tweeted “Sasha dancing with Snookie?? Mark out??” Clearly, those are question marks, so don’t get too excited. :-) If true, good for Markie – time to go full bore on that music career, bud. -Heidi

ETA16: And Markie is in…and Sasha may not be. @dwtsgossip can’t confirm him, but he/she can confirm Mark. Again, certain sources out there have a piss poor track record – dwtsgossip is not one of those, and neither is TMZ. I’ll leave it at that. :-) But seriously people -always consider the source. And remember no one is infallible. Don’t get worked up until September 4th. :-) p.s. see mark’s tweet to dwtsgossip. :-)

ETA17: Heidi here to tell you that a few spots in Pro Watch may just be WRONG. Dead wrong. Sorry, that’s all I can say right now. We’re in for one surprise tomorrow and a couple other mild surprises. 😉 Maybe – take it with a grain of salt as usual when mysterious sources appear. 

ETA18: Errr…well, the cat seems to be out of the bag on some other sites (and Heidi is already in bed), so here it goes: Lindsay has allegedly been downgraded to troupe along with Gleb, Sasha has allegedly been upgraded to pro from the troupe, and one of the “non-troupe lurkers” I mentioned almost a month ago, Tyne, has allegedly been fast-tracked straight to pro.  Witney & Henry remain in the troupe, which is now only 4 strong.  I’m not exactly happy with this new development (especially since Tyne, to my knowledge, is just a contemporary dancer), but I’m interested to see what you guys’ thoughts are…and keep in mind, this does seem to contradict some of what we’ve already heard from reputable sources, so take it with a grain of salt. -Court-

Dancing with the Stars Season 16 – PRO WATCH!!

The post started getting long and confusing, so I decided to move the current standings up to the top of the page. There are supposedly 12 couples, so things can still get interesting. :-)

Current Standings:

Male Pros
Derek
Val
Tony
Mark
Gleb Savchenko
Tristan

Female Pros
Cheryl
Lindsay
Sharna
Peta??
Karina
Kym

Out For the Season
Chelsie
Anna
Maks (???)
Lacey
Louis

ETA: See Karina’s facebook and Lacey’s twitter for the source of my latest updates. Late on Saturday before the announcement and we still have some HOLES in our roster. Hmmmmm…
ETA2: DWTSGossip tells someone that Tristan is in, but doesn’t actually tweet it outright. Uncertain?

ETA3: Louis tweets that he’s not going to be on this season, which is not too big of a surprise.  An ambiguous tweet from @DWTSGossip makes us wonder if Maks really is out or not…and it appears as though Lizzie Grubman may have flown to LA yesterday.  Emma confirms she’s in the troupe again this season (and is not a pro), which leaves us wondering: who is this mysterious 12th pro??? 😯

ETA4: And the mysterious fourth pro appears to be Gleb?? It is very obnoxious of me to say this just cuz I’ve never heard of the guy…but is this a joke??

ETA5: And I must give props to Miss Sally for picking up on the suspicious “What a beautiful day!” comment Kym tweeted at 4:26 AM Sydney time – which is actually 9:26 AM Los Angeles time…because DWTSGossip is reporting Kym is IN as the last female pro 😎 Looks like Tristan has also been confirmed as the final male pro, which leaves Maks & Henry out in the cold.  Interesting…

Confirmed Sooper Troupers
Witney Carson (according to Grant’s source)
Sasha Farber
Emma Slater
