PureDWTS19 Week 7 Media And Interviews After Dance Night, Dance Info Revealed For Next Week

What an unforgettable night last night! So many great dances and lots to cover! Let’s see what the couples had to say about it in some new interviews below. First, don’t miss heading to ABC7 and the Daily Mail for some amazing photos. Glamour has some backstage fun as well.

Ok, onto the interviews. Note that it’s “Dynaminc Duo” week for Week 8 and the couples also have THREE dances….

-Derek and Bethany will be “Ricky and Lucy” if they can get everything cleared (lots more with them at Pure Derek Hough).

-Lea and Artem have “Bonnie and Clyde” and they mention they will dance to Carrie Underwood’s “Something Bad is About To Happen”. Artem also explains on how the THREE dances will take place next week (be sure to listen carefully to the ABC7 interview).

-Peta and Tommy have “Johnny Cash and June Carter” and they are doing a Paso Doble to “Ring Of Fire”.

-Mark and Sadie wouldn’t say who they are as a “couple”, but, they have a contemporary dance and it will be “beautiful”. Sadie hints that it’s something “she would do”. Mark says it has something to do with “the beginning of time” (wha? Hmm…maybe “Adam and Eve” like some have guessed in comments?).

-Val and Janel are going to be “Romeo and Juliet” and they are dancing to “Everybody’s Free” from the Baz Luhrmann’s “Romeo and Juliet”.

-Alfonso and Witney have “Batman and Robin” and they have a Cha Cha Cha.

-Michael and Emma have a Foxtrot, but, they can’t reveal anything else yet since it’s not cleared. Emma is extremely excited on it if she gets her way with it.

Special thanks to JC Rubio, Allison Holker, George Pennacchio, and Shaun Robinson for doing such an excellent job with these interviews and feeling and getting to the heart of the matter. Be sure to tweet them at twitter and send them some love. Lot’s of great content to take in…

DWTS Season 19 Week 7!! Let’s discuss tonight’s show! (Spoilers)

Once again, comment to your hearts contents, as long as you remember the show night rules. If I see any repeat offenders this week, you might find yourself on moderation. I’m serious…the one line comments with no context were ridiculous. Use dancers names – not everyone is reading in real time. I saw improvement last week – please remember the rules.

  1. Our server gets totally hosed when people sit at their computer and click “refresh” constantly. Post a comment, then walk away for five minutes so that others have a chance…and so that Courtney and I can actually post on the site. :-)
  2. THIS SITE IS NOT TWITTER. Do not post like you are on twitter. You get one warning and then I put you in time out. :-) We need context and content. Believe it or not there are a lot of people who don’t watch the east coast feed of the show, so they don’t know what the hell you’re talking about when you post a comment that says, “Boy, that sucked.”  If you want to say “____ and ____’s dance was not good at all, crappy choreo” that’s fine. That would be context. It is good. :-D  Remember, if you post five one liners in five minutes, you’ve broken rule number 1. ;-)

 

Now THAT is an opening number!! Thank you for male pros and Mandy Moore. :-)

Tommy – can’t believe he’s 76! He was pretty damn good. Of course, he had lots of little mistakes, but he amazes me. I can’t imagine doing that at 76. Shout out to Peta – she’s really impressed me a hell of a lot this season. Fantastic job, Peta!!

I just heard Lacey say on All Access that she doesn’t feel like Artem is challenging Lea enough – that he was going for a clean routine. I would have to agree. She has great legs, but the routines are too simple for what I think she’s capable of.

Getting kinda tired of Bethany going in the first half. Really. Good thing the team dances are last.

Of course Len has to hammer DEREK for something that everyone EXCEPT him has been doing all f@#king season. At least he didn’t do his usual “6” paddle. All that said, I thought I saw a couple spots where she wasn’t quite sure. But damn, interesting as hell dance. I was mesmerized.

:::sigh::: Antonio. He’s just not a dancer and he’s not as interesting as Tommy and Michael.

LOL to the clown getting Cheryl. Hilarious.

Poor Emma. Well, he’s not horrible in hold… it’s just the rest of it that was bad.

Lea is wearing her Team Dance costume on All Access and I have to say it’s pretty amazing. Also amazing? Seeing a Nashville commercial with Derek in it while DWTS is on.

20 out of 40 for Michael? He must make it through tonight. :-)

I actually really like that PLL song. But why is Janel wearing those awful boots again?? Is she having ankle problems? Was there enough dancing in that dance? I was distracted. I do too much during the show. I need to stop.

Okay, not just me. Julianne agreed with me. Not that that’s always a good thing… :-)

A peek at the Red Room shows Bethany STILL in the makeup and hair chair – where she’s been since the end of her dance.

Oy Len – a bit harsh with the 7. Not a Janel fan…but a *7*?? I guess it’s good that he’s spreading that behavior over to Val instead of keeping it all on Derek.

Mark makes a REALLY convincing Zombie.

I thought that was a really good rumba from Alfonso. Very nice. I bought it from Alfonso. Well done.

Hmmmm…”whipping out my tinfoil hat”…Ya know, a conspiracy theorist could start to wonder if they already intend for Derek’s team to lose the team dance. Bethany got high scores yet Alfonso is three points lower. So, if Derek’s team loses, Alfonso and Beth are close to tied at the top of the leader board. Very curious to see how Sadie does.

Mark is a nutbar. And I mean that in the nicest possible way. :-) I’m not sure how I feel about that as a Paso – the outfit was kinda wrong. Oh holy crap…I actually agree with CAI a bit. But only a bit – it wasn’t that bad. I adore Sadie. They’re being a bit too mean. Okay, good for Julianne to bring it back to the center a bit more.

Frankly, I think they’ve been screwing Sadie over all season – they owe her one. Mark is PISSED. SEVENS!!??!?!? Are you f@#king kidding me?? I call BS on that one, big time.

It does bring me back to my tinfoil hat theory though….and before anyone says it in the comments, NO, going first doesn’t mean you’re going to lose. Derek has gone first several times.

LOL! Inside Derek’s head when Tom makes the never lost comment: “DUDE, SHUT UP!!”

Okay, I liked Itsey Bitsey, but the music did nothing for me. I think it did them no favors. Nice, intricate choreo and everyone looked in sync.

I predict right now that Team Creepy gets at least two 10s to bring Alfonso up to Bethany.

Okay….All of Team Itsy Bitsey is SAFE!!

So, I think Team Itsy had the better choreo, by a long shot. dancing on both teams was pretty great. But Team Creepy’s song was so much better that I can see them winning just on that. That song makes me happy. Or maybe not.

Huh. I think that a 32 is LOW score for that team dance. I would have given them only 2 points lower.

Alfonso – Safe

Sadie – Safe

Antonio and Tommy last two standing.

Person going home:

HOW Did We Do??

Heidi: Called Michael with Antonio a close second.

Courtney: Called Antonio

Vogue: Called Antonio

Safe to say, we’re killing it this season. :-)

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Tom Bergeron To Guest Star On “Nashville” November 12th Episode

I was expecting Derek Hough to be listed in the new ABC press release (Via Broadway World) for “Nashville”, not Tom Bergeron. Read on for more. This is going to be cool…

“I’m Coming Home To You” – Rayna’s campaign to raise Highway 65’s sales and profile finds her performing her latest single on “Dancing with the Stars.” But when she agrees to be shadowed by a reporter all weekend for the cover of a magazine, just as Luke hopes to rekindle the romance, she realizes she may have pushed her public access too far. Juliette struggles to prepare for motherhood alone, and Will and Layla brace themselves for the premiere of their reality show, on “Nashville,” WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network. Tom Bergeron (host of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars”) guest stars as himself.

Note Derek Hough fans: Derek isn’t listed, so, he may not be starring in this episode. Though, watch just in case.

If you’d like to see a drawing of Sadie Robertson’s costume for tonight on Dancing With The Stars, see E Online. I love these costume teasers every week.

Hm…any guesses on who she’s supposed to be for Halloween?!

“They always get it perfectly!” Sadie exclusively tells E! News of her dress, costume designed by Daniela Gschwendtner. “I can’t wait for everyone to see this one.”
