Dancing with the Stars, Season 19 Premieres September 15, 2014

And that’s not all. According to an ABC Press release, Cheryl was partly right when she said that DWTS might go back to 2 nights.  Apparently there will be two special results shows (not counting the two night finale, I’m guessing).  I tend to assume that perhaps they don’t have other programming on those nights OR these two nights are a “test” to see if they like the numbers or not. :::shrug::: If it means we get more pro dances – preferably, choreographed by Derek and one of his SYTYCD buddies – I don’t care too much about the reasoning…

…unless they do something REALLY stupid, like a big, double elimination or some such thing. I guess we’ll have a better idea when we see how big the cast is. :-)

In addition, there will be two special nights of “Dancing with the Stars Results Show” this season, airing on Tuesday, September 16 and Tuesday, September 23, from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET. 

 

Monday, September 15

8:00-10:00 p.m.             

Stay tuned for more later. Maybe. :-)

ETA: Regarding Spring and fall seasons, from Glamour, via DWTSGossip:

*Paul Lee said that Dancing With the Stars will continue with spring and fall installments. There had been rumors that it would be cut to once a year, but Lee said that “the plan is for two installments a year.” Lee also mentioned that he’s very happy with the pairing of Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.

ETA2: And regarding Erin…from ABC News Radio:

Finally, Andrews wanted to be clear to DWTS fans that she still plans to co-host the show.

“I am going to have time for Dancing with the Stars. That was all part of our negotiations with them. In February when they came to us, I kind of hinted when I took the job, I was going to be on the Michael Strahan program, now more so than ever,” she said. “He works crazy hours on Sunday, I’ll be doing the same thing. I’m literally going to be going from the football field to the ballroom just like ‘Stra,’ he goes from the studio in New York to his show with Kelly Ripa.”

And look who’s playing reporter!!

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Wants Julianne Hough Back, Changes Next Season

Hey All! Be sure to read Cathy’s fan blog over at Pure Derek Hough. At a Question and Answer session at the “Move Live On Tour” Broadway show, Derek Hough mentions how Dancing With The Stars wants Julianne back for next season. There will also “be changes”. Derek also mentioned that he didn’t know if he’d be back.

Then he went on to say that they want Julianne back, there will be changes next season, and that he doesn’t know yet.

This would be so cool. I hope they can get Julianne (as well as Derek) back to dance as she is on fire in this tour to say the least according to all our reports. She’d be a great judge again too. Though note that Julianne has also mentioned going back to making movies when the tour ends. So, it’s anyone’s guess for what could happen?

DWTS Derek Hough And His Dancers Do The Cereal And Milk Dance At Kelloggs Recharge Bar

What a fun Thursday it was for Dancing With The Stars Derek Hough and several of his “Move Live On Tour” Dancers. They made an appearance at the Kelloggs Recharge Bar in New York City to dance what Derek calls “The Cereal And Milk Dance”. This seriously needs to be turned into a TV commercial. So clever and catchy! For more on the event including an exclusive fan report, interviews, other views of this dance, and high quality pictures, see Pure Derek Hough.

Derek And Julianne Hough Make Cover Of People Magazine, New Interview

Be sure to pick up the new issue of People Magazine. Derek and Julianne Hough are featured in it and they also grace the front cover (has a pro from Dancing With The Stars ever made it to the cover before? So awesome!). In the new interview, the two share their story of their unusual upbringing from learning to dance, winning Dancing With The Stars, and more.

They battled homesickness, and young Julianne especially struggled with the pressure of trying to fit into the mature world of ballroom dance. Thanks to her spray tans and competition makeup, “When I look back, I think it’s so sad I have no pictures of me with a cute, bare, 10-year-old face,” she says.

But today, the two agree that their success is due to the sacrifices they made as kids and their years of hard work.

“People will say, ‘How could your parents let you go off to do that?’ ” Derek says. “I think it’s great that they saw an amazing opportunity. That is the reason we are here today.”
