Kellie Pickler’s OFFICIAL New Music Video for Someone Somewhere Tonight feat. Derek Hough

Wow. It’s gorgeous. And, some damn good acting from both of them…to the point that one of Derek’s regular trolls on twitter told him to “leave Kellie alone, she has a husband”.  You can’t make this stuff up, I tell ya! :-)

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. :-)

Cheryl Burke Wants Khloe Kardashian To Dance On DWTS, Said She Would Win

PureDWTS reader Lois has a way of gathering up our feelings with her Dancing With The Stars poems and this time is no different…..

TWAS THE WEEK AFTER

Twas the week after our favorite dancing show
And all through the house, TVs have no glow

Not even a peep from Tom Bergeron we hear
No pros performing sparkling dances are near

No sequined costumes flowing across the floor
No pitter-patter of dancing feet, oh no, no more

Where is the band, did Harold Wheeler disappear
The music stopped, we have no tones for our ear

The couples have all gone home, it just can’t be
There is no more dancing for our eyes to see

What shall we do until Season 17 comes back
Our DVRs and YouTube will take up the slack

We blow a kiss good-bye to a season of dance
Oh how we wish we had just one other chance

To see the dancers again in all their regal glory
Return soon dancing show to tell another story!

WE MISS YOU, WE MOURN YOU, WE SHED A TEAR, OUR LOVE WE SEND!
DANCING WITH THE STARS COME BACK AROUND THE DANCING BEND!

THANKS Lois!!

With that said, on with a new Dancing With The Stars “watch out” and one not to be taken too seriously (let’s hope, lol). Life and Style Magazine is reporting pro dancer Cheryl Burke would like to see Khloe Kardashian dance on Dancing With The Stars. What’s more, and if she did so, she’d win. 8O

Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke had an uphill battle when she was paired with comedian DL Hughley this season, but the two-time mirror ball champion isn’t dwelling on what might have been. Instead, she’s already focused on the next season of the hit show – and which celebs she’d like to see foxtroting their way across the floor. Number one on her wish list? Khloe Kardashian.

“Khloe’s got to do it,” Cheryl says. “I think she would be amazing. I think she would actually win the whole thing. She looks great, and I think she has natural rhythm and I think she would be amazing.”

More at Life and Style Magazine. What do you think if this were to happen?

Simply put, ‘No, please NO’ for me! I could barely handle seeing her on the X Factor last season or in the audience screaming when her brother Rob danced on the show. :o

Pre DWTS Season 16 Finale Poll Results vs. ABC Voting Mishap Theory

DonaMadrina wrote to us and pointed out some interesting results on some polls taken before the Dancing With The Stars finale. With or without the ABC mishap in their voting system last Monday night, TV Guide’s polls tipped Kellie Pickler to take home the Mirror ball trophy at 59%, Zendaya received 27% pf the votes, while Aly Raisman earned 9% and Jacoby Jones 5%.

In a poll at Digital Spy, Kellie garnished 51.78% of the votes, Zendaya garnished 34.3%, Aly garnished 8.12%, and 5.8% of the votes went to Jacoby.

In our Poll at PureDWTS, Kellie topped the votes at 64%, Zendaya got 30% of the votes, and Aly and Jacoby both tied with 3% of the votes.

Lastly, and not that the Dial Idol polls are accurate always (as we’ve highly stressed in the past), but, they tipped Kellie to win as well. DonaMadrina has been watching this source closely and tells us she’s never seen such a “landslide in raw numbers for any season, but this season, there was.” Though another interesting thing to note is that alumni and Dancing With The Stars season 11 winner Jennifer Grey was a landslide winner in other polls at the time, but, not at Dial Idol.

It begs the question, but, with or without the voting mishap at ABC, Kellie was going to win and deservedly so in my opinion. What do you think and let’s see what Heidi thinks too? Thanks so much Dona!!!!

Heidi: Online polls are crap. Dial Idol is CRAP. I don’t feel that that can be stressed enough. However, when ALL the polls (or 95% of them) and Dial Idol together show a certain outcome it begins to have the air of legitimacy – or at least strong possibility.  But still, going forward, don’t hang your hat on one poll or another, and certainly don’t cherry pick polls to make your case. Any poll or Dial Idol taken by itself is indicative of NOTHING, especially when that poll can be spammed.  Word to the wise. :-)

‘Dancing With The Smiths’ Help Raise $1 Million For Childrens Charity

Isn’t it cool when the celebrities keep up with their dancing? That’s when you know they really love it. These endearing qualities fit Emmitt Smith for one. What’s more, check out how he used his love for dancing for his Children’s Charity Benefit and Celebrity Invitational in Texas held on May 10th and 11th. The theme was called “Dancing with the Smiths”. It featured friends one of which included last season’s All-Star winner and fellow competitor Melissa Rycroft. She also served as Honorary Host for the evening. Tony Dovolani was also present. The event ended up raising $1 million dollars for children in need. Below is a fun picture of Emmitt dancing with his wife Pat (wouldn’t it be cool if she danced on Dancing With The Stars?). You can view more fun photos of them all (including Tony and Melissa) at My Sweet Charity. A huge thanks to @DWTSgossip for the heads up and picture links for this story.

One of my fave ever contestants and couples on Dancing With The Stars!

Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean Has Always Wanted To Dance on Dancing With The Stars

Awww, I love when rumor and wannabe season starts and how about this one from Contact Music via Perez Hilton about Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean (pictured above to the right in the white tank) wanting to dance? I have always loved the Backstreet Boys. I hope this happens.

And he isn’t the only member of the grown-up boyband with his sights set on reality Tv – A.J. MCLean is desperate to show off his dancefloor skills on U.S. show Dancing With the Stars.

Bandmate Howie Dorough explains, “The same year that Nick’s brother (Aaron Carter) did it (Dancing With the Stars) I was approached about doing it, but obviously couldn’t do it because of the fact we were embarking on a new record and touring.

“I know A.J. has always said he’s wanted to do it, for sure. He has almost begged to be on the show.”

Picture courtesy of Zimbio Pictures where you can see more.

By the way and just a note not to send us every wannabe who wants to dance. Heidi, Court, and I are very on top of this already weeding out the serious from the unserious. Also, for those new to the site, please don’t plug or spam them in comments either or they will be deleted.
