Nancy Kerrigan Writes On Disney Week On Dancing With The Stars And More

Nancy Kerrigan has written about Disney Week at Team USA. It was a long week, but, she had a lot of fun getting ready. Here is more….

By Friday (my husband and I took the kids to Disneyland for Brian’s birthday in the morning), the number was really taking shape and on Saturday we felt really comfortable with our progress so that on Easter Sunday, other than for some required camera blocking, we didn’t have rehearsal!

After what seemed like a long week, Monday morning finally rolled around and my 7 a.m. call time got me to the studio in time for a morning of fitting a red wig, getting my makeup done and costume finalized and, oh yeah, rehearsal for a group opening number.

And what an opening number it was. Loved being part of it. And loved all the costumes for tonight…but then again, it’s Disney!!

I didn’t dance until eighth though, so I had to stay occupied by watching and practicing…and then the new wrinkle of finding out the results before the end of the show. So it was a little strange to know that we had already advanced to Week 6 before we danced.

But with everything behind us, we got out on the dance floor and once again things came together and we performed what was a really fun jazz number. It was great performing with a group of dancers and perhaps dancing as a character other than myself allowed me to really lose myself in the music.

So Disney Week was a success and now it’s on to “boy bands vs. girl bands” and a team competition. Never a dull moment on “Dancing with the Stars”!

Dancing with the Stars Season 24, Week SIX – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

It’s “boy bands vs. girl bands” Week and a Team Competition. Here’s what we know so far….

ETA: All songs & dances updated. Had to raise my eyebrows at more than one of these – really? “I Want You Back” as an Argentine tango??? Well, if anyone can make it work, it’s Lindsay. “Free Your Mind” is one of the most grossly overused songs this show has ever heard, behind “Hey! Pachuco” – hope Artem can make Nancy stand out against memories of Mel B & Sabrina dancing to the same song. Will be interesting to see how Bonner fares with a Backstreet Boys song, considering that Nick Carter is guest judging. Looking at some of the songs chosen, I kinda wonder if this list maybe started as an R&B week, and then got retooled into boy bands vs. girl groups after the fact… -Court-

ETA2: Julianne is definitely NOT judging DWTS tonight as she just posted an instastory showing her with serious bed head on their tour bus.

ETA3: Bonner, Nancy and Nick got the not great spots tonight, but it matters less with each week that goes by. All the women got the pimp spot as well…as expected.

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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 24 Week 5 – Media, Interviews, Scores, And More After The Dances

What a night again on Dancing With The Stars. Disney Night was so showy and magical. Though I was sad to see Gleb and Erika eliminated. In another season, they might have made it further (being this season has so many great dancers), but, they made their mark never the less. I’ll never forget their magnificent holds, dips, and lines. I loved her Madonna presence and her HAIR (which I thought Gleb showcased so beautifully every week). I also loved their costumes.

So, let’s review the scores which seems so whacked all night. Should Rashad & Emma and David & Lindsay be this low? 🙁 I don’t think so….

Normani & Val 39 (10, 9, 10, 10)
Simone & Sasha 38 (9, 9, 10, 10
Nancy & Artem 36 (9, 9, 9, 9)
Heather & Alan 34 (8, 8, 9, 9)
Nick & Peta 34 (9, 8, 9, 8)
Rashad & Emma 32 (7, 8, 9, 8)
Erika & Gleb 32 (8, 8, 8, 8) Eliminated
Bonner & Sharna 30 (7, 8, 8, 7)
David & Lindsay 29 (7, 7, 8, 7)

You can relive all the dances again at Idolxfactor (these videos work Internationally) and the official You Tube site.

For media, recaps, and interviews, first see People and Entertainment Tonight (I’d embed these, but, they won’t stop and go.). Glamour has some interviews with some of the cast as well. Below is a take with David and Bonner.

David Ross had the lowest score of the night, but was in a great mood backstage. “I’m having the time of my life,” the World Series champ told me. “I have a great coach who works my tail off every week and choreographs amazing dances and brings out my strengths.” While it might seem as though he could be the next to go home, I don’t think he will. David is charming, charismatic, and probably the most fun contestant to watch this season. I wouldn’t be surprised if he makes it another few weeks.

Bonner Bolton was intent on smiling through the pain backstage, but admitted he wasn’t feeling great. “It’s something I try not to talk about a lot and just keep stepping up to the challenge. I’d just rather not focus on it personally. I’m amazed at what I’ve achieved. I didn’t know I could get this far.”

DWTS Season 24, WEEK FIVE – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Disney Week – I can’t decide if I’m excited or not. 🙂 I have a tendency to recall Rumer sneering at the camera “Let Nastia and Derek have that song” like an entitled…anyway, that’s one of the drawbacks of watching this show since nearly the beginning. Almost nothing is new.

Hey, there’s my favorite little cutie from SYTYCD. JT!! Read more..

Dancing With The Stars Season 24 Disney Week Blogs, Update On Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Peta Murgatroyd says Nick is feeling more confident after last week’s performance on Dancing With The Stars. Read why below. She also gives an update on Maks Chmerkovskiy who most likely won’t be back tonight to dance….

I think Pinocchio is a great character for Nick because, in the past, he’s gotten some comments about being a little stiff. This week, that natural stiffness is going to work in our favor as part of the character!

I’m so excited to see everyone else’s routines! I know Maks was hoping to be back on the dance floor this week, but I don’t think that’s going to be happening. At home, he’s dancing around a little and is able to put more and more weight on his leg but he’s not fully back to where he was before his injury. I’m really hoping — and I know he’s hoping — to be back fully next week!

But for now, I’m focusing on tonight’s routine. I think that Nick is feeling more confident after last week’s performance and I’m hoping we can continue our trend of getting better and better scores!

Also, we are going to see another side of Erika Jayne tonight on Dancing With The Stars. Read on….

Disney might not be the first thing people think of when they think of me, but you have to remember that everyone is a complex human being. No one is just one way all the time. I grew up loving disney movies and love going to the park, so this is not a stretch.

But don’t expect a fish costume or anything. It’s a slow, more controlled dance. It’s definitely tricky, but there are some really beautiful parts to it. It’s a very elegant, intimate and sensitive dance that focuses on the emotional connection between you and your partner. It will be really sweeping and pretty and romantic.

I think the judges have been looking for the softer, more feminine and vulnerable side of my personality, and I think that’s what we aim to give them this week. I hope that comes across!

For more from Peta, Erika, and other blogs through out the day, see People.
