DWTS Season 13, Week 5 and 6 – The Cheesecake Awards

Well, Courtney and I are suffering from a bit of a mid-season “blah” – all my mind is really capable of right now is “Derek pretty…Derek pretty…” So, this version of the cheesecake is for both weeks 5 and 6, and it’s either going to be extremely bitchy or short and mean. :-) Hard to tell. It’s perception, really. :-)

Week 5

Tom Bergeron’s WTF Moment of the Night: When Brooke says “A Hush has fallen over the Ballroom” yet there is actually a pretty noticeable booing and hissing from the audience.

Heidi: Poor Tom, he just couldn’t help himself, he had to say something. :-) His response was pretty funny: “Sounds like a pretty angry ‘hush’ to me.” Geez, Brooke? Really? A hush? Maybe you meant hiss?? Here’s a piece of advice – don’t ad lib.

Courtney: Someone call tech support, stat – the Brookebot 2.0 has a glitch in its matrix. Seriously, she’s like Tickle Me Elmo these days – only says a handful of phrases, and it’s only cute once or twice before it gets terribly annoying.

The Award for Biggest WTF of the Results Show: The Choir

Heidi: Um, really?? A choir? In the gowns and everything?? And it wasn’t a little choir, there was a whole dang bunch of them. I thought for a moment I was watching the finale of American Idol. I will say, the choir stayed in sync better than the troupe dancers did. I have to say that the choir coming out (and yes, I get the Madonna connection) was the first time in a long time that I sat there going “what the f*#k are they doing?” I was momentarily stumped. Confused. Befuddled.

Courtney: Confuzzled :-P I sure hope they didn’t break the bank when they booked the choir – if I were them, I’d be funneling more money into get a troupe that CAN ACTUALLY DANCE IN SYNCH than into ridiculous, over-the-top props. Maybe this is why they skimped on the fire with the extension cord a few weeks ago – had to pinch pennies to afford the choir. Read more..

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. :-)

Official ABC Details Released On Dancing With The Stars Week 7 (Performers, Team Songs, & More)

Justin Bieber and Boyz II Men will be performing on Tuesday night’s results show. They will sing “Fa La La” which is a new track from Justin’s holiday album “Under the Mistletoe” (which you can sample here if you like). Christina Perri will also be performing. Below are some more details released on the show from ABC. Note how Mark Ballas and Chelsie Hightower will return to dance. Derek Hough is joining dancer Alison Holker of “So You Think You Can Dance” for an “exceptional Latin infused choreographed number”.

It’s going to be a fun Halloween!

“Episode 1307 & 1307A” — Monday’s “Dancing with the Stars” kicks off live from the ballroom with an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the remaining couples as they get ready for their big Halloween night during the special ABC premiere of “Scared Shrekless,” which airs Monday,
October 31 from 7:58-8:30 p.m., ET. Inspired by the hit feature film “Shrek,” viewers will join Shrek (Mike Myers) as he celebrates his favorite holiday, ogre-style. Shreck ditches the standard tricks or treats and challenges fairy-tale characters, including Donkey (Dean Edwards) and Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas), to a scary storytelling contest. Just as the contest is set to begin, they all discover they must spend the night in Lord Farguaad’s haunted castle, and the last one to be scared “Shrekless” will win.

Then, the Halloween Night event continues with an exciting Halloween-themed episode of “Dancing with the Stars,” filled with thrilling performances from the remaining six couples. Each pair will light up the ballroom floor with killer costumes and an electrifying dance to some of Halloween’s favorite spooky tunes. Later in the night they return to the floor when Team Tango’s J.R & Karina, Nancy & Tristan and David & Kym, dancing to Rihanna’s “Disturbia,” battle Team Paso’s Ricki & Derek, Hope & Maksim and Rob & Cheryl, dancing to Evanescence’s “Bring Me to Life.” The gripping 90-minute show airs MONDAY, OCTOBER 31 (8:30-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

This week on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” global pop sensation Justin Bieber and the best selling R&B group of all time, Boyz II Men, collaborate for a television premiere performance of “Fa La La,” accompanied by pro dancers Mark Ballas and Chelsie Hightower. “Fa La La” is from Bieber’s Christmas album, “Under the Mistletoe,” available November 1st. Bieber will hit the stage for a second time with a knockout performance of his megahit song, “Never Say Never.” Pro dancer Derek Hough joins “So You Think You Can Dance” dancer Alison Holker for an exceptional Latin infused choreographed number. Additionally, this season’s second “AT&T Spotlight Performance” will truly be an emotional and unique dance performance, accompanied by hot new recording artist Christina Perri singing her smash hit, “Arms.” In the end, the sixth couple eliminated must say goodbye, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET).

In other TV mentions, don’t miss seeing Bruno Tonioli on Jimmy Kimmel Live after the show Monday night. Kym Johnson and David Arquette will also guest on Good Morning America on Thursday, Nov. 3rd.

DWTS Quick Quiz……

I’ve been here and there on the internet to try to find some information I need. DWTS had a performance show on Halloween before, so be on the look out for eventually seeing a review of that past performance show. Season 3, week 8, by the way. Also, trying to figure out the team dances…

Meanwhile, I found a lot of interesting stuff, and anyone who is “into” trivia may be interested. So here’s how it’s going to work…. I’ll post a few questions, and you answer in the comments. Simple. All the answers can be found if you look, and I’ll try to make some easy, and some not so easy. I’ll post tomorrow in the comments the correct answers, or if people found the correct answers! OH! And some of the questions MAY NOT refer to just our version…

DWTS QUICK QUIZ #1:

1.) How many celebrities have withdrawn from the US version of the show?

2.) How many professionals have had back to back wins?

3.) There are versions of the show in over 30 countries around the world, and so far, there have been 2 Dancing With The Stars World Championships. Name the country that came in first place in the first one.

That’s it! Happy hunting!
