Vote for Dancing with the Stars Season 14 Winner

It’s time for our traditional DWTS poll where you can vote for who you think will be the winner of Dancing with the Stars season 14. Will it be Katherine Jenkins, William Levy, or Donald Driver hoisting the Mirror Ball Trophy and becoming the Dancing with the Stars Season 14 Winner? The interesting thing is that usually in the Dancing with the Stars finale the judges scores are quite close and so it’s really all about the public voting.

Of course, this poll isn’t scientific, but when you look at past results from Pure Dancing with the Stars polls they do quite well. So, vote for who you think will win Dancing with the Stars 2012. Don’t worry about voting over and over and over again. The poll does a pretty good job of filtering out extra votes. It’s not perfect, but luckily we will get enough votes that it should be a pretty good predictor of the DWTS season 14 winner.

Feel free to also share in the comments who you wish was the DWTS season 14 winner or who deserves to be the winner of DWTS 2012.

DWTS Season 11, Week 10 – Media After Tuesday’s Final Show

Hey Guys!! Just because Season 10 has ended, don’t think for a second this site has closed down. We will try and fulfill your dancing needs all winter and ours too. Besides rumors will start surfacing soon. In fact, I think Heidi has one rumor she’s been keeping wrapped tight waiting for just the perfect moment to disclose it. Plus, you never know what’s in store for gossip, news, “Who wore it better posts”, and more. So, stick around if you know what’s good. ;) With that said, here’s some fun media to share after our winning couple was crowned lastnight.

Derek and Jennifer being interviewed by The Insider;

A great wrap of of the night with ABC. Note what Bristol said on her “middle finger”.;

Kyle and Lacey being interviewed by Access Hollywood.

ET covering the night backstage;

Bristol talking some more on her “middle finger” with Access Hollywood (this makes me furious, not cool in my opinion). She says she’s had a lot of “offers” too. Hmmm….

Access Hollywood interviewing Jennifer and Derek after being crowned;

And here are our three finalists on Good Morning America today dancing and more. This is fun!;

Good Morning America also showed Maks and Robin Roberts finally doing their Cha Cha Cha together in honor of her 50th birthday. This makes me want to see more of her. Wouldn’t it be cool if she became a future contestant on the show? “Venturing out of your comfort zone” is good. :D ;

Lastly, here is our winning couple on the Jimmy Kimmel show lastnight;

Ok, more later All!! Wow, what a night and one of the best finales ever (imo)!! Vin you put it so well;

Last night’s finale was sick!!!

DWTS Season 11, Week 10 – Backstage Media After Monday Night Performances & More

“Our most-talked-about season,” Tom Bergeron said as the finals of “Dancing With the Stars” opened tonight. Yes, funny how a lighthearted dance contest morphed into a battlefield. I liked it better when it was a dance contest.

Do you agree or disagree? Special thanks to Heidi letting me know on this quote she loved from the Orlando Sentinel. I love it too and so agree. Be sure to read the link for more of a cool wrap up of the night and who they think should win.

Here is some backstage footage after show for the couples reactions on their dances, tonight’s upcoming dances, and more….

Bristol and Mark;

Jennifer and Derek;

Kyle and Lacey;

More of Jennifer and Derek before the show and a glimpse of what might come tonight on the results show, the importance of keeping focused, being humble, etc.;

All the couples before the show;

Niecy Nash capturing all the “mayhem”;

Here is Carrie Ann being interviewed after the show on the negative and vicious reactions she’s personally received this year (I hate to say it, but she had the criticism coming. She only has herself to blame imo)

Maks and Tony for why Bristol is still in the competiton;

And lastly in other things out there to share, here is more of Maks and Robin Roberts on Good Morning America today doing the Cha Cha Cha. I love this.;

Ok, here’s to The Results Show tonight everyone. Be there or be square…I am sure of it. ;) xx

It’s always fun at this point to start having readers of Pure DWTS voting for those who they think will make it to the Dancing with the Stars top 3. Certainly the poll isn’t perfect, but overall it’s done a pretty great job of predicting who will make it to the Dancing with the Stars Season 11 top 3. We’ll do a couple more times to predict the Winner of DWTS Season 11.

To make the voting fun. I’m actually going to make it so you can vote in 2 polls. The first poll you can only vote for your favorite DWTS season 11 couple. The second poll you can vote for which 3 couples you think will make it into the DWTS season 11 top 3. Let the voting begin.

Now the poll where you can vote for the top 3.

If Only We Had the DWTS Data…

Many of you might not realize this, but the Amazing Marianya (I think I just figured out her new nickname) has this incredibly spreadsheet she’s created for all the seasons of Dancing with the Stars. It has scores, music, type of star, etc etc etc. Yes, she’s a stats nerd and proud of it (at least she seems to be). That’s how she can answer anyone’s question about music and do all those posts looking back at previous uses of the music and previous scores to predict future scores.

The problem is that Marianya doesn’t have all of the data that we really need to be able to analyze Dancing with the Stars completely. If she could just get her hands on more data Courtney could do an even better job with her Dancing with the Stars Power Rankings (although she’s done pretty dang well with what she has). Princess Heidi could even point to these stats whenever they want to argue about the virtues of Derek Hough.

However, what is probably most important is that I could more easily predict the winner of Dancing with the Stars. To get us started here’s some theories about why people will win. If any of you have the data to support these theories, please let me know so we can add it to Marianya’s spreadsheet:

Times in Restroom – If we could just know how many times the stars and pros had to go to the restroom before they performed, I think we’d have a leg up on being able to predict their dancing ability. Cause of course, the nerves bring the best out of people.

Heartrate – Imagine if we could just have a heart monitor connected to each person. At regular intervals it could just post this data to their Twitter account and we could take the data from there. I think heart rate would be a really interesting indicator of a dancer’s success. They do it on the Tour de France. Why not on Dancing with the Stars?

Length of Hair – I’m pretty sure that if we ran a correlation on length of hair and rank on DWTS there would be a high correlation. Of course we’d need this data over time. For example, was Derek Hough more successful with the longer or the shorter hair? Karina Smirnoff would be interesting since she loves to do funky things with her hair.

Times on Entertainment Shows – We hear lots of complaining about certain stars getting more air time on TV (Donny was one of the best at this I think). Imagine if we had the data about how much TV time each star got on these Entertainment Shows. Marianya wouldn’t know what to do with that much data.

Leg length – Ok, maybe this one doesn’t matter. Or maybe it does. You can’t tell me that Ana’s Rhumba is as nice as Edyta’s. Sorry, she just doesn’t have the legs that are needed to do it right. (No offense to Ana. I’ve actually grown to really like her this season).

I’m sure there’s other important pieces of data that would keep Marianya up at night as she analyzes the data. Feel free to leave anything I missed in the comments. Check out this poll if you’re looking for a less scientific method of predicting the Dancing with the Stars season 10 winner, but what’s the fun in that?
