DWTS 10 Dance Comparison Chad & Cheryl

Another celeb bites the dust… right before the finals! So sad… but to commemorate Chad & Cheryl’s dances, we’re going to take a quick trip down memory lane for the two songs that Chad & Cheryl recycled from previous couples.

The first song is Cancion Del Mariachi by Los Lobos and Antonio Banderas Los Lobos & Antonio Banderas - Desperado (The Soundtrack) - Cancion del Mariachi (Morena de Mi Corazon) both couples did this as a Paso Doble…

This was first done by Season 3’s Mario Lopez & Karina Smirnoff on Week 4:

And here is Chad and Cheryl‘s version.

Secondly there is the song If You Don’t Know Me by Now as done by Simply Red Simply Red - Simply Red 25 - The Greatest Hits - If You Don't Know Me By Now (though it was originally recorded by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes - Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes - If You Don't Know Me By Now) both of the following couples did this as a Waltz.

Originally danced by Season 4’s Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough. (Start at 1:26)

And finally Chad and Cheryl‘s Waltz from Monday night:

May 19, 2010 I Written By

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

DWTS 10 Niecy & Louis (and Others) Dance Comparisons

Another week, another celebrity eliminated. This time it was Niecy Nash and her professional partner Louis van Amstel that was given the ax. After going through all of their songs, it came to my attention that they only have one recycled song! La Bamba by Ritchie Valens Ritchie Valens - The Best of Ritchie Valens - La Bamba

Here is that Samba as done on Week 5 by Niecy Nash and Louis van Amstel:

This song was previously done as a Mambo by Paulina Porizkova & Alec Mazo of Season 4 on Week 2. (Start at 1:57)

DWTS 10 Pamela & Damian Dance Comparison

It’s that time of the week again! Where we reminisce about the dances that a celeb has done and compare that to past celebs that danced to that same song waaaaaay back when.

In Pamela and Damian’s case, they have four recycled songs in their repertoire this season. Unfortunately I was only able to find dances to three of the four recycled songs. The fourth song in question is I Can’t Make You Love Me by Bonnie Raitt. Bonnie Raitt - The Best of Bonnie Raitt - I Can't Make You Love Me Pamela and Damian danced their Rumba to this song on Week 4, while it was originally done by Toni Braxton & Alec Mazo of Season 7 on Week 2 also as a Rumba. (In case you’re wondering, I cannot find a video of Toni & Alec’s Rumba… so if anyone has that it would be great!)

So going down memory lane…

On Week 2, Pamela & Damian danced a Foxtrot to Marilyn Monroe’s I Wanna Be Loved By You. Marilyn Monroe - The Very Best Of - I Wanna Be Loved By You

This was originally danced by Season 3’s Mario Lopez & Karina Smirnoff on Week 7.
