More Details On How Dancing With The Stars Will Be Aired Tonight, Rob Wade Comments

On Friday, ABC released some show details for how Dancing With The Stars will be aired tonight in terms of the level of interactivity. ABC.com will be offering five live streams from key positions at the show venue, allowing fans to choose views of the Red Room, judges, sky box, a wide angle of the dance floor and a hosted feed that will highlight relevant social media conversations. Below is more information from USA Today and Executive Producer Rob Wade. This is going to be cool and it’s going to be fun to see Lacey Schwimmer again too. Pic above courtesy of Mandy Moore.

During the premiere, ABC.com will offer four live-streaming backstage cameras and a simultaneous digital show called Dancing with the Stars: All Access hosted by Dominic Bowden and Lacey Schwimmer. The live streams are meant to be consumed as a second-screen complement to the television broadcast.

“You’ll see a lot of the stuff that happens backstage during the show and during the commercial breaks,” said Dancing with the Stars executive producer Rob Wade. “Really what you see on the show is only half the story so we felt like it was something that really gave you all-access to our cast.”

The backstage cameras will feature views of the judges, skybox, backstage Red Room, and the lower balcony. Online viewers will be able to choose which camera to stream. The simulcast digital program will feature commentary and interviews during commercial breaks as well.

In addition to the live streams, viewers will be able to keep tabs on couple’s rehearsals throughout the week. Raw rehearsal footage as well as original digital content will be uploaded to abc.com every week.

Julianne Hough On Judging DWTS: “It’s all about honesty and tough love” (New Interview And Pics)

The Insider interviewed Julianne Hough on her love life (I think she has finally found “the one” and what a sweet, down to earth, and genuine guy!). They also ask Julianne about judging Dancing With The Stars. ‘It’s all about honesty and tough love” much like the way she teaches dance. More below. Picture above courtesy of Getty Images.

ETA: If you can’t see the video below, see this link.

ETA2: You can also read another new interview at TV Guide. Below is a take. Thanks to Abby for the heads up!

Now that there are four judges on the panel, will we be seeing any guest appearances?
Hough: I think so. I think that grumpy old Len still has to go back and forth to the U.K. for the show … so I’m sure there’s going to be a few weeks where we either add or replace Len for a week or something like that.

This is the first season that Conrad Green won’t be producing the show. Can fans expect any other big changes under new boss Rob Wade?
Hough: This isn’t the same show that I was on. It’s the same idea obviously, but it’s a new show. It’s revamped. The dancing, the performances, the skill level has gone up so much, so dramatically from the time that I was on to now. … As much as it’s coming home to my family, it’s like my family’s all grown-up now and it’s like a whole new show. I’m really excited.

What do you think about this season’s cast?
Hough: We have some celebrities that have been around for a long time, but some new fresh faces that are exciting that we might not know very well, because maybe we don’t watch Duck Dynasty or Pretty Little Liars. … It’s exciting to see and grow with our celebrities and not have a preconceived notion of who they are. … I think these are all people that we’re going to be on the journey from Day One with them, with almost no expectation. The only person that I would feel like we have a little bit of expectation from would be Alfonso, just because of the Carlton dance. But that’s literally the only one. I think for everybody else, it’s kind of like … we’re going to be on that journey with them. We have no expectation, which is really exciting.

Dancing with the Stars Season 19 – “What do you mean I’m a ringer??” Update

Introduction

A couple of seasons ago, I created a set of criteria with which to measure the benefits some dancers on DWTS have compared to the other dancers. That is, ringers versus non-ringers. I attempted to be as logical and scientific as possible, although it’s impossible to remove all subjectivity from the issue. But it’s far better than simply saying “so and so isn’t a ringer, IMO”. In your opinion? If your opinion is purely subjective with no effort at logical or rational thought, then what good is it??

No good at all, actually. The original series sprung from an effort to debunk the old, tired and stupid claim that the only reason Derek does well is because he gets all the good partners and no one else gets them. Utter BS, of course. It would be a good idea to read that series before starting this one as I can’t guarantee that I’ll include all the same rationale this second time around and I don’t take well to discussing a subject with someone who is so rude as to not read the blogs.

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. :-)

Bruno Tonioli Chats On Julianne Hough, Len Goodman, and Keeping DWTS Fresh (New Interview)

More with Bruno Tonioli!! Parade interviewed him about Dancing With The Stars. He talks of why Len Goodman needs some time off this season. He also chats about Julianne Hough and keeping the show fresh. More below. Don’t miss reading the full interview at Parade.

How do you think she’ll mesh with the rest of the judges?
“She’s not a beginner in that respect as well. And I think in general, not just with Julianne, you have to be yourself. You have to express yourself and your own feelings. You can’t really worry too much about what the others are going to say. You have to stick with your thoughts and express your thoughts and your feelings in a way that I think connects with the public. My definition of it is that I don’t see myself as there to make an ultimate decision. I feel you have to engage with the public. I don’t consider myself as this totalitarian ruler, I think what you have to do is engage the public into a kind of conversation. We have our opinion and I’m not saying I’m right, but that’s what I feel, and you want to connect with an audience so they feel they can have a conversation with you and I think she can do that very well.”

What are some other changes fans can look forward to this season?
“I think another thing with DWTS is that it’s a constantly evolving show. I think, having been there from the beginning, there’s no drastic changes, but there will be these little things that will keep it fresh and evolving. The dancing is getting better, the production is getting better. I almost say it’s like a love affair, to keep a lover interested you can’t change too much, but you have to always surprise them [laughs]. And that’s really the key to keeping the show fresh and exciting. Our fans are so lovely and so loyal and we’ve never taken them for granted. We’re not just showing up and doing more of the same, we try to keep it real.”

Two more days and counting!
