Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko had a Facebook chat today. They talked about both of their “Most Memorable Years” (Fascinating stuff). They also talk on their next dance in “Expressing Themselves”. I can’t wait. Good luck to these two!!! Thanks to @Idolxfactor1 for recording.
Access Hollywood finally released Simone Biles and Sasha Farber’s interview from Monday night. They talk on their dance, the lift….and all the fun they are having together. Bring it on for next week, Guys! You’ve got this!
ETA: And here they are on Entertainment Tonight with a rehearsal interview. You can see them dancing too. I have a feeling I will cry for sure. Beautiful and great interview. Thanks to Abby for the heads up.
Thanks to Derek and Julianne Hough for their fantastic performance the other night…and for blowing up my Derek twitter search. That was a struggle to get through. 🙂 Amazing dance – I loved it.
As for the rest of the dancing, no one struck me as horrible, but at the same time, I was only really impressed by Nancy and David. I still wonder why Nick is getting so badly hosed every week. What is the deal? I have a hard time believing they are trying to give Peta an early exit – she’s a competitor and there’s no way she wants an early exit, baby or not. And fact is, Nick is NOT a dancer like many of the women are and he’s doing pretty darn good for someone who is a complete novice. I think he was better than Bonner by a good bit (and Peta is doing better for him than Sharna is for Bonner), yet he got the same scores from Len and Bruno as Mr. T and Charo did. In what freakin’ universe?? I love Mr. T – but he is not the dancer that Nick is, not even close. Come on, judges. Why is the bar set so high for Nick? You’re treating him like he’s a pro not living up to expectations, instead of Joe Bachelor who’s never danced before. Read more..
James Hinchcliffe Weighs In On The Sharna Burgess And Bonner Bolton Romance Rumors, DWTS Week 4 Teaser
Below you can watch James Hinchcliffe weigh in on the Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess romance rumors as he thinks there is some interest there.
In other things, see Fox News for a cool feature on Bonner and his personal story for what might take place Monday night on Dancing With The Stars.
“I [believed] I was dying the day it happened and I was saying my last prayer.”
The rider can’t believe he’s gone from “being paralyzed in that bed laying face up… and now dancing on this floor.”
Bolton, who won the bull riding world championship when he was 20, told Fox News, “I was on the rise again when I got hurt.”
He wouldn’t accept that he’d be paralyzed forever: “I kept pushing myself to know and believe that I would walk again, not only would I walk again, I told [doctors] they would see me walk that week before I got out of the hospital — and they had me climbing three flights of stairs.”
The determined bull rider admitted of recuperation, “It was hard to hold a fork the right way for a few months….I couldn’t bathe myself. I had to have help.”
Most Memorable Year…hopefully doesn’t translate to lots of rumbas or cliche contemporary. 🙂 Oh, wait…Nick has Rumba. :::rolls eyes:::
ETA: Vogue here. According to Lindsay Arnold’s new blog, her and David have a Viennese Waltz. This week will be very different and more personal. Lots more at the link.
ETA2: Gleb & Erika and Rashad & Emma’s dances have been added too. Thanks to everyone who let us know on them.
ETA4: Wow. Big mistake for Heather to be doing a Cha Cha….lookin’ like a one trick pony. Shoulda done a waltz or something. Same goes for Erika and Cha Cha. People doing Cha Cha for memorable year don’t typically fare well.
ETA5: Dance order per George Pennachio – boy, they sure are trying to get rid of Nick.
Normani and Val – Rumba (Song: Impossible by Shontelle)
Nick and Peta – Rumba (Song: Shape of You by Ed Sheeran)
Nancy and Artem – Foxtrot (Song: My Wish by Rascal Flatts)

Chicago Cub manager Joe Maddon is so proud of David Ross for what’s he’s doing on Dancing With The Stars. See why below. I love this…
“It was great,” Maddon said Tuesday. “I’m so proud of him. We all should be proud of him. First, we talk about being uncomfortable. He’s got to be absolutely uncomfortable doing all of that.
“I’ve only known him for a couple years. I couldn’t be more proud of him. I think it’s awesome. Whatever he does after this experience, it’s only going to benefit that. I’m a big believer of all of that. The complementary effects of really reaching outside of your comfort area. Bully for him. He’s doing great.
Anybody who wants to be a hater on that one, please, try to do what he’s doing. It’s pretty spectacular.”
Well said! More at the Chicago Tribune.
Nancy Kerrigan has written about this week’s dance with Artem Chigvintsev. She talks of how she missed some steps in dress rehearsals and being nervous, but, their dance came together for the Live show. From Team USA including information on their next dance….
After hair and makeup and a couple of run-throughs, it was time for dress rehearsal. Finally, we were dancing later in the show which most people think is good but I wasn’t so sure.
There is something to be said for being warmed up and going right out to perform. Waiting around can be complicated. You cool off, have to occupy yourself.
And that is exactly what happened in dress rehearsal. I missed a couple of steps and as a result, was pretty nervous before the show.
But then in the show it all came together and we had an exciting performance which was a thrill. The judges’ comments were amazing and getting the first 9 from Len was very cool.
So this week was very satisfying and allows me to move on to Week 4 where we will dance the foxtrot.
Lots more on the week at Team USA.
