Dancing with the Stars Season 19 – Who’s Dancing What….and When? (Song Spoilers)

Ahhh…here we are again. Who’s dancing what, when and to what song?? We do have song spoilers….but I’m going to make you wait for most of them. :-)

Note…the order listed below is NOT the dance order. As soon as a number (order and phone) appears below a couples name, then you know the order they are dancing in. Even though I suck at guessing dance order, the order below is my guess as to how Monday night will shake out. Also, until you hear the song on Monday night, we have to caution that something could change. And we might have one song reversed with another song. :-) 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. :-)

Antonio Sabato Jr. Talks About DWTS, His First Dance, Cheryl Burke, General Hospital, and More

This is a fun interview with Antonio Sabato Jr.! Daytime Confidential asks him questions about his new home improvement show, ‘Fix It & Finish It’. They also ask him about a possible return to General Hospital and joining Dancing with the Stars. Below is Antonio talking about dancing. More at the link. I love this guy!

DC: Ever since the new DWTS cast was announced, viewers have been teased that Alfonso Ribeiro will do the “Carlton Dance.” Do you know if or how you’ll incorporate Fix It & Finish It, or other past roles like Jagger or your Calvin Klein modeling, into DWTS yet?
ASJ: I don’t know. Right now I’m just really concentrating on one dance, which is our first dance, [a Cha-Cha], which is the week from Monday. It’s such a huge challenge to be dancing like this with an amazing partner. That’s what I have to focus on right now. Then, if I make it to the next week, we’ll see what they do with me. So far, I know that we have our dance, and then there’s another song that they want us to dance to, which is a slower song. Now, all I have in front of me is one dance, and that’s what I’ve been rehearsing every day. We’ll see. I’m sure they’re going to throw out something fun to do, and we’ll do it. We’ll have a great time.


DC: Good luck, it seems like quite the challenge.

ASJ: Yep, it is. It is a challenge because, you know, I don’t have any dancing background of any kind, and this is something else. It’s a whole new beast. It’s just, like, the number one show in the country, and I’ve been asked to do this by my fans for the last 10 years, so it’s finally here. I’m finally doing it. You know? What a great time! I’m just so fortunate. I’m just taking it each day, one day at a time.

DC: You’re working on the Cha-Cha now. Did you have any say in choosing the type of dance you’re doing—
ASJ: No. [Laughs].

DC: …and is there one you’re looking forward to, like a jive or salsa, should you advance?
ASJ: I’m looking forward to all the dances. This one right here…you know, I mean I didn’t have a say in it, which might surprise you. They give you a week’s notice, and then you pretty much have seven days to get one dance down. It’s really something else. It’s a huge challenge. I’m looking forward to dancing Cha-Cha, but I’ve also got some time to go. I have one week to perfect it. As soon as I’m done [here], I’m going over to rehearse with [partner Cheryl Burke]. She’s probably waiting for me at the dance studio right now.

DC: You’re going to be very busy!
ASJ: A challenge is something I love confronting head on. Fix It & Finish It is a huge challenge to do 150 shows in a year across [the] country. I’m working a lot on renovations and demo, and things like that — things I personally do. Then, throughout that, I got another blessing. I got a call saying, “Would you like to be involved with Dancing with the Stars?” My first thing was, you know, “I can’t do it.” It sucks for the producers and my team. If they want me to do it, if they’re okay with it ‘cause Fix It & Finish It was my main priority. So, it all worked out, and now we have somewhat of a busy, seven-day-a-week schedule. I don’t have free time, but Dancing with the Stars is something I considered for a long time. My fans and my family are so, so happy that I’m doing this. I love the challenge. I think it’s an amazing journey that I’m taking right now. You know, Cheryl Burke is on the road with me right now, which is really cool. I don’t know. I just take every challenge as it is, and maybe they work. You know, I go to work every morning [and] I ambush the families and then I go into the rehearsals, and then I go back and keep doing work, and that’s a seven-day job. We’ll just keep going, [and] as long as I’m healthy, and I’m eating and getting some rest—I’m happy.

What Are Your First Impressions In These Categories For Dancing With The Stars Season 19?

Ok, so most of you have seen the first interview videos, read the first spoilers, and interviews, etc.. Question: What Are Your First Impressions In These Categories For Dancing With The Stars Season 19: Biggest Surprise, Most Dramatic, Most Likely To Showmance, First Eliminated, and Real Top 4? Court, Heidi, and I will weigh in below with our answers and thoughts. We’d love to hear your answers and thoughts as well. Please join us in comments if interested.

Vogue

Biggest Surprise: It’s funny as I’m kind of getting this “biggest surprise” feeling from all of the contestants in some way. Sadie is surprising me by having such a sweet personality. With a ‘Duck Dynasty’ connection, I was expecting “Bristol Palin” #2, but, I’m not getting that feeling at all. She seems to have a lively, light hearted, and sweet disposition.

I also think one of the biggest surprises we’ll see is how far Michael Waltrip and Randy Couture might go in this competition for their fun personalities. Though I think “promo” is key here for both. I especially hope Michael feeds his You Tube channel like we saw Nancy Grace do because that seemed to help her a lot in her season.

I wonder on Tavis as well as it could go either way. Even though Read more..

PureDWTS Poetry Corner: “Casting The Stars Of The Dance”

And here is our fabulous resident poet, Lois, with another one of her great poems putting this past week’s emotions together….

CASTING STARS OF THE DANCE

Season 19 is complete by casting stars of the dance
A variety of stars twinkling, tantalizing, taking a chance

From a race car driver to actors oozing the word hot
Each one has been cast, each one being given a shot

To have their star rise, twirling across the dance floor
DANCING WITH THE STARS casting spells and allure

The pros are polishing the talents of the brilliant cast
Three new pros join the fun, will their stars learn fast

On September 4 the cast assembled together on GMA
Announced one by one, it was a glorious, happy day

Having the honors of announcing each dancing pair
Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews voices filled the air

The pairs debuted as they came through the door:

ARTEM CHIGVINTSEV AND LEA THOMPSON
DEREK HOUGH AND BETHANY MOTA
KEO MOTSEPE AND. LOLO JONES
TONY DOVOLANI AND BETSEY JOHNSON
MARK BALLAS AND SADIE ROBERTSON
VALENTIN CHMERKOVSKIY AND JANEL PARRISH
EMMA SLATER AND MICHAEL WALTRIP
ALISON HOLKER AND JONATHAN BENNETT
KARINA SMIRNOFF AND RANDY COUTURE
CHERYL BURKE AND ANTONIO SABATO, JR
PETA MURGATROYD AND TOMMY CHONG
WITNEY CARSON AND ALFONSO RIBIERO

But, wait, Number 13 was cast, there was one more:

SHARNA BURGESS AND TAVIS SMILEY

The countdown is on, the ballroom is ready to roar
Rafters will shake, dance fever temperatures soar

September 15 stars will shine, emitting a special glow
CASTING STARS OF.THE DANCE and on with the show!
