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

I can’t believe we’re already at Week 6 – and we’ve had a whole bunch of mediocre dancing with a few standouts.

Again, DWTS wants us to pimp the livestream so….you can view Lacey’s Stream on our site, just click the link.

Once again, comment to your hearts contents, as long as you remember the show night rules. Some of you were VERY bad at this last week. 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. It was bad enough that Courtney couldn’t get on the dashboard.

  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. ;-)

 

OKAY, our first spoilers of the night are that the Team Dances are next week!! And Paso Doble is on the table. :-)

Feel like I’ve seen this opening dance before…like, every week. Gee, look how fast those male pros disappear.

Okay, Tommy is SAFE…while Janel and Jonathan are in jeopardy. I don’t expect Janel to leave tonight, but I do think this is a harbinger. Although…the DWTS twitter did tweet about a “shock”.

I guess they just couldn’t bear to give Jonathan ONE 9?? That was a pretty damn good dance.

Anyone still want to argue that Val and Janel aren’t playing showmance?? I mean it was only their whole package, after being put in jeopardy. Anyone ready to deny they aren’t trying to get the shippers on board? (Both TPTB and Val/Janel themselves?) ::::crickets::::

Got distracted and didn’t see all of Janel’s dance – will have to go back to see the whole thing. Read more..

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

I will not be able to watch DWTS Live, but I may get a stream – we’re having tornadoes here and, obviously, I may have to leave the computer.  Cross your fingers.

I’m here!!  Thanks god for the men in the opening number. Was starting to get worried about yet another bump and grind. I’m no prude, but that gets old after a while.

On the plus side, maybe this was Jesse J’s one performance for the night and her only bias is someone else singing her song while Janel dances.

God Val, put on a shirt. You ain’t all that. Same to you, Artem.

Antonio is dancing first??  He’s screwed.

Okay, that wasn’t fabulous, but it wasn’t quite the trainwreck I expected. DT says that he and Allison got along really well.

Team Badie!!!  How hilarious. I think I would kill Mark if he made farting noises every time I bent over. :-)

Bethany and Mark Hip Hop…I think I liked it. I’m not sure actually. I like the Hip Hop to be a bit harder I think. But she has the right look, the make up.

I love how Derek hangs over the balcony to hear what the judges are saying. He’s so involved.

Gee….I wonder who they’re saving their 9’s for…. :::gag:::

That’s two weeks in a row that Bethany has gone early.

Wow…I’m sensing an agenda.  Jonathan wasn’t that bad, I didn’t think.  Maybe I’m missing something, but I thought that was his best dance yet.

Like how, before Jonathan danced, that Mark straight up called them out for hosing him on scores. So, what’s the deal? Is someone they want to go far doing poorly in the votes so they need to widen the margins?? I guess we’ll see when Janel dances. :-)

Speaking of Janel – saw a bit of her routine on the red room cam and it looked like a freestyle with a bunch of lifts.

Alfonso freakin’ killed it!!  Sure, he can’t do it like Derek did with Kellie, but he’s not a professional. Fantastic! I loved it!! Jules is going to hose him on the score though.

WTF?!?!?!?  8s??  AREYOUKIDDINGME!!!

Hahaha…Derek on All Access telling Sadie not to watch Janel and Artem’s package. Then told the kids to look away from the screen during the dance. LOL  Derek: “Is she rubbing him? That’s SO inappropriate.” In Derek’s ‘I’m being funny’ voice.

Thanks god for Julianne – and I guess she would know Burlesque. Anyway, she made up for Beth’s 8s with that one. :-D

Okay, perhaps they’re going to finally give Sadie a score she deserves?? That’s where all the 9’s and 10’s are??

Uh oh, another storm line….

I can’t help but like Michael. :-) Man can’t dance but he’s fun as hell.

Loved Tommy as well.

Sadie KILLED it, but why do I think she’s going to get hosed yet again in scores??

Yep…hosed yet again. You couldn’t throw the girl one ten?? WTF??  Derek calling out the judges – you go boy.

Yeah…Janel and Val don’t play at showmancing. Nope. Nosiree. No showmancing here.

I love Lea, but if that dance scores better than Sadie’s I’ll be pissed. And then I’ll be worried she’s not getting the votes.  Seriously, it was a good dance, but it wasn’t markedly better than either Bethany or Janel.

Okay, we can count on Julianne again to be a downer. In this case that might be a good thing.  If CAI goes higher than 8 I might have to fly to LA and slap a bitch.

So, CAI seriously thinks that Lea’s dance was better than Bethany’s and as good as Sadie’s?? She’s been on crack all night. She should consider rehab.

DWTS Season 19, The Partner Switch!! Who Got Who? GMA Announcement Blog

Yep, almost missed this. Someone turned my alarm off. :::cough::: Which means I have to take a shower right now and risk missing something again. Gotta go to work, ya know. Real job. :-)

Anyway, watch this space…. :-) Out of the show, now I’m impatient. :-) I guess I’ll go comb out my wet hair. Isn’t this exciting?? :-)

Okay, they just said “8:21″ – I might have time to get dressed. :-)

Here we go…

(I didn’t realize Tony comes in miniature)

Bethany – Mark
Lea – Val
Sadie – Derek
Janel – Artem (Burlesque)

Alfonso – Cheryl
Antonio – Allison
Jonathan – Peta
Michael – Whitney
Tommy – Emma (Mambo)

So, How does the reality compare to our Predictions, keeping in mind that our “predictions” were based on real research?

Question for you: Are TPTB finding a way to eliminate the spammers or just doing whatever the hell they want?? Because the numbers I saw, even with a huge margin of error, didn’t result in these pairs. Not all of them anyway.

Question 2: Giving Janel Burlesque seems like a pretty strong PIMPAGE move. Agree or disagree??

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

Well, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I expect tonight will be a big ole cluster f@#k. :-)  Again, DWTS wants us to pimp the livestream so….you can view Lacey’s Stream on our site, just click the link.

Interesting, Janel going first and Beth going 4th. I expect Bethany to have a much lower score than 40 (this show is a GAME after all, and we must have DRAMA), but we’ll see if that same curse holds true for Janel – she’s rather pimped. Although it’s getting hard to tell if it’s actually TPTB doing the pimping, or Janel herself. :-D

By the way, Courtney and I made some predictions on the Switch up pairings, check it out and see what you think!

What the hell was going on during the couples announcements?? Kept cutting to shots of the big ball. :-)

Janel and Jonathan are both safe right off the bat. Betsey in jeopardy.

Janel gets all 9’s, including one from America – for a jerky rumba. Which is hilarious (not) since about 3 out of 25 of my followers commenting said they could actually vote. Then it said I already voted for Jonathan when I certainly didn’t. Bastards.

Well, I’m baaaack!! I got to vote for Betsey and Bethany. Gotta disagree with Jules – I think there was plenty of content in that rumba. But who cares. She’s probably going to be safe next week, since her fans managed to get her a higher score from America, plus that song/dance was so emotional. That’s unusual tonight, after all. And if I hear anyone say they didn’t connect with Bethany, I may cut a bitch. :-)

Ahhh….I love Michael. But his dancing is not good. I gave him a high score anyway, to counteract those judges. :-) Bill Engvall in the house, and teary eyed.

Someone want to explain to me why, when I vote for Bethany and Derek, the “related video” shown after I vote is Vajanel?? Shades of Meryl and Maks style pimpage which pisses me off like you wouldn’t believe.

Oh, I love Lea – and this is when I remind you all that I’ve been saying Lea can DANCE. :-) America is crappy. :-)

Really, America – now you’re overscoring Antonio?? Geez. This does make me wonder if he will last longer than I think, though. Although I thought he was going home tonight and that’s clearly not the case. :-)

Tommmmmyyyyy!!! No, you’re not leaving me. No. He’s in jeopardy though. :-) That jive wasn’t great…but I just love him.

WTF?? And you people were worried about Julianne?? WTF do CAI and Bruno have against Sadie?? Give the girl some damn 10’s!! Or does that not fit tonight’s agenda?? That dance was more than 1 point better than Janel. Stingy M’fers.

What part of “THIS IS NOT TWITTER” do some of you not understand. Do I have to start banning people??

Okay, we have Michael, Tommy and Betsey in Jeopardy…..SPOILER….

Next couple safe is: Tommy and Peta

Betsey and Tony are eliminated. She had a great run and she very graciously thanks everyone.

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

Looking forward to some entertaining dancing tonight. Note I used the words “entertaining” as opposed to “good”. :-)  Again, DWTS wants us to pimp the livestream so….you can view Lacey’s Stream on our site, just click the link.

We start this weeks discussion with some spoilers for next week!!  Hee. Next week is personal story/greatest year week – however they want to phrase it.  If Alfonso makes it through, he’s doing Jazz to “It’s Not Unusual” – apparently complete with the “Carlton” dance. :-) I, for one, can’t wait.

Another week, another female bump and grind. I was never so happy to see the male pros with Cheryl.

Votes and scores from LAST week?? Sca-rewed! I would guess Michael. Then they make Randy go first AGAIN and tell him he’s in jeopardy?? WTF – who let Conrad back in the ballroom???

Okay, I’m multi-tasking too much and I’m missing the show. Dang it. What I do know is that they called some scary people SAFE, including Michael and Betsy. This makes me very worried for Randy.

Beautiful dance from Sadie and Mark. Loved it. Very sweet. Love Derek instructing Sadie on how not to cry because “that’s what they want, that’s what they want”

A perfect score in week three? I smell a shocking elimination in about three weeks.

Holy s#£t!! Tommy!! Love him!!

Totally love Bethany and Derek’s routine, much harder than Janel and Val,… Still don’t think we should have a perfect score in week three. But I’ll take it just to make Val crazy :-). I was concerned Derek might burst into tears with the scores. :-)

So, the final three standing were Antonio, Jonathan and Randy….

Randy and Karina were eliminated. Boooooo….

DWTS Season 19 LIVE STREAM!

As discussed in our weekly discussion post, this is where you can watch the live stream from abc.com once it starts.  I’ve put Lacey’s feed up here for the time being – if anyone has another preference, let me know. Someone from DWTS PR (I think) that we promote their stream…since I like it, I thought “why not?”

Oy veh!! Big competition on all networks tonight. I’ll be interested to see if DWTS can maintain it’s Top 10 status.

Randy is hot. Hot, hot, hot.

I kinda dug the opening number but I was expecting more I guess. Read more..

DWTS19 Going Into Week 2 Las Vegas Odds Discussion

What an interesting shake up at Sports Bovada going into week 2 of Dancing With The Stars. Note how they gave Lolo Jones 7 to 1 odds last week….and well, we know how that turned out. So, when you take a look at the new odds for this week, do you think the odds makers have it right this time?

Alfonso Ribeiro 3/2
Sadie Robertson 3/1
Bethany Mota 7/1
Lea Thompson 15/2
Janel Parrish 8/1
Jonathan Bennett 10/1
Randy Couture 15/1
Tavis Smiley 15/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 25/1
Tommy Chong 33/1
Betsey Johnson 100/1
Michael Waltrip 100/1

Last week’s Odds:

Alfonso Ribeiro 3/1
Janel Parrish 5/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 6/1
Jonathan Bennett 7/1
Lolo Jones 7/1
Sadie Robertson 9/1
Bethany Mota 10/1
Tavis Smiley 12/1
Randy Couture 15/1
Lea Thompson 20/1
Betsey Johnson 33/1
Michael Waltrip 33/1
Tommy Chong 50/1

My thoughts: I think they have the odds pretty correct. Though I am not convinced on Lea yet. I think they should switch her and Randy Couture. Even though Tavis had a great showing, I thought Antonio made a better one. As for everyone else, I think they are placed about right…for now.

Let’s see what Heidi and Courtney think and be sure to let us know on your thoughts too in comments.

Heidi: Actually, unless Val picks it up (and the judges start pimping), I think Randy should be switched with *Janel*, not Lea. Lea is a dancer and a very good one, even considering her age. Her only drawback may be Artem. Artem needs to choreograph for the US audience, not the UK one.  We’ll see if he gets there. I rewatched Lea’s foxtrot again and it was beautiful. I actually think they have the top 4 right, and the number 1 right. I expect if any of them have an off week the odds will change but I doubt that will change the reality. Hard to say. The youngsters don’t always get the votes. I would not be surprised to see Sadie beat both Janel and Bethany though because the girl is goofy and charming. Bethany is too, but she’s a bit quieter, I think. But…maybe that was just week 1. Derek knows what he has to do for her to stand out.  If he gets the idea that she’s not? Look out. :-)  I think I would switch Tommy and Tavis as well.

Courtney: Hehehe…heavy is the crown, huh Janel & Antonio? Antonio’s drop in this week’s odds is particularly spectacular – here they had him as this big contender, and he…well, wasn’t.  Just like we said :-) And I wouldn’t rule him out as a possible early elim. And for all the boasting Val did on Twitter about how great his partner is (and for all the showmancing they did), Janel ended up looking just ok up against the likes of Bethany, Sadie, Alfonso, & even Randy. Those two have got a LOT of hard work ahead of them if they expect to have a fighting chance against some of the names I just mentioned. Still think Randy is better than they’re giving him credit for – he made a far bigger splash than Tavis, and yet they still have them neck-and-neck.  Michael is not a great dancer, but I think he’s got a better chance of sticking around than Betsey – people seem to be taking a liking to him.

DWTS Season 19 Week 1 Media After The Results Show, More Premiere Interviews

What a great results show last night!! It was so good to see the pros dancing in more numbers. Though unfortunately, someone always has to go home. The couples as well as our eliminated couple Lolo and Keo talk all about it below with Access Hollywood and Afterbuzz TV. Lolo also talked with People about her elimination at this link. E Online also has some interviews and coverage after the show (sorry I can’t embed those as they mess up the site). Lastly, ABC7 has posted George Pennacchio’s interviews from premiere night. Lots of fun things to watch and listen to when you get time today. One more thing: don’t miss seeing some pics of the pros at an after party Monday night at Just Jared Jr. Really cute!!

ETA: Afterbuzz TV is loading more Results show interviews as I type. Be sure to see them all at this link.

ETA2: Lolo and Keo’s GMA interview this morning has been added below.
