Afterbuzz TV Reviews Dancing With The Stars Week 5

Below is the new Afterbuzz TV Show for Dancing With The Stars Week 5. I thought it was an excellent show up until Suri and Anna started being critical of Nastia and Derek again. Let us know what you think, as always, in comments.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Dancing with the Stars Season 20, Week SIX – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Below is what we know so far for the new dances and Team Dances for Dancing With The Stars Season 20 Week 6 and note that it’s “Spring Break” Week.

ETA: We have our first song spoiler! Though I can’t say it’s exactly SPRING breaky… -Court-

ETA2: Figured I’d go ahead and confirm this one, since they were already strongly hinting at it in the live stream…oh, and apparently the teams have names now (pix below).  Sure hope Rumer’s team didn’t give themselves a headache coming up with such an original team name :-P

ETA3: Court, you were right. Carrie Ann is calling next week’s theme “Spring Break Extravaganza” according to her new blog.

ETA4: We don’t know what belongs to who, but we know the remaining dances for next week are (2) jives, a samba, a salsa, and a Viennese waltz. Discuss. :-)

ETA5: Well we managed to fill in the blanks based on what Just Jared posted. I think the music folks at DWTS and I have very different ideas of what a “spring break” song is, though – some of these seem more like summer break songs, and some seem…dumb.

ETA6: Per Artem in the live rehearsal stream, Patti has apparently switched to quickstep.  Hmmmm…perhaps the jive was too hard for her to barely move to?

ETA7: Not to be outdone, Riker has decided to change songs. See below. :::rolls eyes::: When can we go back to the good old days where you danced to what they gave you. That certainly told us who our choreographers were. Although, before that – years ago – the pros chose ALL the music. The pendulum swings… :-) ~Heidi

Rumer and Val – Jazz (Song: “Bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child)

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. :-)

A Date For The DWTS 10th Anniversary Special and Other Pre-Anniversary Show Info

Nancy Lee Grahn tweeted about the Dancing With The Stars Anniversary Special last night and news about her being there with Kelly Monaco. She also posted a date for April 21st. Note: this date isn’t “official” yet. Just something to keep in mind. Thanks to Lois for the heads up on this tweet.

AnniversaySpecial

ETA: Per our source, the Anniversary Special is, indeed, airing on this coming Tuesday, April 21st…but it may not be TOTALLY live. Source thinks some couples may have pre-taped their segments.

ETA2: I apologize – message got lost in translation. Show is getting TAPED this coming Tuesday, April 21, but it won’t actually AIR until May 7. Apparently there was even confusion from those behind the scenes on what was going to be happening this week – Deep Throat was under the impression that they would be doing two live shows this coming week, until Rob clarified. :-) #miscommunicationevenoccursbehindthescenes

ETA3: Vogue here. Is it possible Maria Menounos, Amy Purdy, and Amy Riley (all Derek Hough partners) are filming or doing something for the 10th Anniversary show. They were seen the rehearsal parking lot this weekend…

ETA4: Amy might have been at the studios to film something with Noah Galloway too?

PureDWTS Season 20 Week 5 Scoring And Media After Dance Night

So, how are you all feeling about Disney night? I thought it was one of the best productions we’ve seen on the show in a long time. Well done to everyone who made it all happen!!

With that said, here are the scores for last night’s dances…

Rumer Willis & Valentin Chmerkovskiy – 39
Nastia Liukin & Derek Hough – 38
Riker Lynch & Allison Holker – 38
Willow Shields & Mark Ballas – 34
Noah Galloway & Sharna Burgess – 28
Patti LaBelle & Artem Chigvintsev – 27
Suzanne Somers & Tony Dovolani – 27 (Eliminated)
Chris Soules & Witney Carson – 27
Robert Herjavec & Kym Johnson – 24

So, today we don’t have a lot of media. George of ABC7 and JC Rubio of Afterbuzz TV tweeted there will be no interviews this week except for the eliminated couple (because the teams went straight to rehearsals), but, ABC7 has recap and some beautiful photos. Entertainment Tonight and The Daily Mail also have some fun photos of the night.

And below is Access Hollywood and Afterbuzz TV with the eliminated couple Tony and Suzanne. E online has an interview and media posted as well. Suzanne said she felt like a “winner” and that she is. I’m so glad she did the show.

Stay tuned and keep checking back for more media through out the day….

ETA: Below is some PopTVDotCom coverage after the show. Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 20, Week FIVE – Let’s Discuss Tonight’s Show!! (Spoilers)

Theme of the week: Disney. Thanks to watching some media I’ve had that damn “Step in Time” in my head all day. Couldn’t shake it when Charlie was dancing to it, it’s no better now. Grrrr…..

So, Teams are picked tonight for Team Dances next week, I understand. The current cumulative scores are:

Nastia – 134
Rumer – 132
Riker – 131
Willow – 128

Something to keep in mind while watching is how the scoring will impact the cumulative and how that will, in turn, impact the team captains. If it all goes to hell, they can always switch from cumulative score to the top 2 scorers of the night. They seem to change it to fit their needs.

Great opening number!! Loved it! All of it. They even managed to squeeze Derek in.

Okay, so Robert is safe and Suzanne is in jeopardy. Suzanne is getting the “I’m quitting” edit – don’t know if it means anything.

Well, Suzanne was doing really well up until the dress malfunction. Bummer. Don’t know if her scores would have gone higher or not though.

Man, shady camera work on Kym and Robert. Geez. Producers will stop at nothing,

Oh boy, Robert was off time the whole time. I have a feeling we might see how strong his fanbase is soon.

More results….Chris and Witney in Jeopardy. Willow is safe, Patti is in jeopardy. By my count that’s already three couples in Jeopardy.

Wonder if Patti is bowing out. She has such a great spirit. Not much dancing, but such wonderful energy.

While I loved the dance, I forgot what style it was supposed to be. Mark’s production was fun, but the dance really god lost in all that. I think this was one step too far. There wasn’t a lot of fluidity. This one could have gone either way.

Chris, eh. That’s gotta hurt. Think Witney is still getting used to not having Alfonso.

Nastia, Rumer, Riker and Noah all safe. Not hard to figure out with four already in jeopardy.

Sharna did a great job with that dance. Obviously, he didn’t do as much as others, but impressive. And good on Sharna for the talking to she gave Noah.

And Sharna does look like a Disney Princess. :-)

So, they tease the rest of the show saying they saved the best for last and showed Riker, Rumer and Nastia. Wonder who they’re going to have go last and then have the judges proclaim them the “best dance of the night”?? Rumer or Nastia?? Bets?

Holy cow – that was a good dance from Riker! And he is SO INTO being Captain Jack, ya gotta love it. :-)

Hmmm….I think I would have given Riker another 10. It wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty damn good.

Oh boy, Rumer and Val are getting a really good edit. Or bad one, depending on your POV. But it sure doesn’t reflect what really happened.

WTF?? There was no Samba in that until the Samba roll. Best dance of the night? The fix is in for sure.

Wayyyyyy overscored.

Way to go Erin so she cuts off Val before he can get too pompous.

Deep throat was right – that was right out of a Disney Movie!!

OMG. Carrie Ann is going to dock them for poor lip syncing?? The fix is certainly all the way in. Rumer gets a 10 for a non-Samba. Nastia gets a 9 10 for poor lip syncing?? How the hell does anyone believe that Derek is favored on this show?? The two best dances of the night get seccond place and the non-samba that wasn’t even that well done gets first place?? Not at all rigged. Nope.

But Nastia is still in first place with cumulative score. :-) Of course, that probably means they’ll use the top scores of tonight and Rumer will be team 1. Sometimes I wonder why I continue to watch this extremely manipulated, over produced show.

Patti safe.

Suzanne eliminated.

Nastia Liukin Can’t Wait To Be A Princess Tonight On Dancing With The Stars

Copied and pasted from Pure Derek Hough where you can read more on this pairing:

Nastia has written her new blog at the Huffington Post. She’s excited to be a Princess tonight. Here is more….

I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but tonight is Disney Week on Dancing with The Stars – does it get better than that?! I doubt that I am any different than other girls in that I have always dreamed of playing a princess – and tonight I will get to do that! And not just any princess, I get to pretend I’m one of the most famous princesses around – Anna from Frozen – no pressure at all!

This week has been so much fun for Derek and I…we actually have to get into the characters for our routine to “Love is an Open Door,” which we decided to make a jazz dance. I think it’s a dance that the audience can really get into and hopefully we will do the characters justice! Really losing ourselves in the storyline of the movie has been one of our main focuses for this week.

Speaking of this week, it was another crazy one! Derek and I just had basically three days to perfect our routine because I had to leave New York on Thursday night for an appearance in Chicago on Friday.
