Dancing with the Stars Elimination Show – September 30,2008

Check out Jessica Simpson on Dancing with the Stars. She’s gone country…ok enough of that. The Judges Choice was by far the most memorable dance from last night. I think the black pleather and Kym’s ability to lean back like the Matrix makes the Matrix dance the best.

Dancing with the Stars Videos

Tonight was an awesome night on Dancing with the Stars. I think it was the fact that it was Rhumba and Paso Doble night on Dancing with the Stars. Very sexy and very beautiful. I’ve already posted the Dancing with the Stars music for your reference.

Best, Surprise and Worst Dances

Best Couples – Translation: They have a chance of winning (along with possible some of the surprise couples below)
Misty and Maks – Misty looked ok. Her broad shoulders did make the line look different, but I can’t fault her too much for that. Maks is funny. My biggest surprise is that Misty isn’t more out there on the show. Her partner often describes her as a ham, but we haven’t really seen much of that on the show. Luckily Misty is tremendously popular.
Cody and Julianne – This couple should be called Dancing with the Stars since Julianne could be more of a star than Cody. Either way, this is a powerful duo with a nice fan following. Plus, Julianne really makes almost any dancer look better.
Lance and Lacey – Lacey is popular from So You Think You Can Dance and boy band fans seem to turn out well in the voting. Oh yeah, plus their dancing is pretty nice too. Only question is whether Lacey’s choreography will get them in trouble with the judges and cause them to lose prematurely.

Surprise Couples – Translation: I’m amazed they did so well
Warren and Kym – I honestly thought that Kim was screwed being with Warren and I thought he’d be a horrible dancer. I was wrong. I stand corrected. He’s pretty good. Maybe it was those ballet classes I hear football players like to take to make them “light on their feet.” Only problem is that Warren played d-line. I don’t think d-line takes ballet. That’s for running backs like Emmitt Smith.
Derek and Brooke – I’m really surprised that Brooke is as good a dancer as she is. The problem is that she’ll really need those good dancing scores. Only problem is that it will catch up to her at the end where everyone is getting 29s and 30s. I’m not sure Brooke is popular enough to do very well in the voting. Luckily Derek is popular in his own right.

Worst Couples – Translation: Thanks for mostly making fools of yourself for our entertainment
Susan and Tony – Honestly Susan is just hard for me to watch dance. Stiff and nothing to her. She certainly is trying hard, but it’s just not pretty.
Rocca and Karina – I really had hoped that Rocco would be better. His second dance wasn’t bad, but unfortunately he’s not going to las too long.
Cloris and Corky – I’m sad that Cloris’s humor will get her so far on the show. Her dancing makes me want to hit fast forward on the tivo. Her grade as a dancer: F- Her grade as a comedian: A++

Any couples I should have added to one list or the other?

Jeff Ross and Ted McGinley on Jimmy Kimmel

After being kicked off Dancing with the Stars, Jeff Ross and Ted McGinley were on Jimmy Kimmel with their partners Edyta and Inna. Jeff Ross pretty much stole the show. That guy is absolutely hilarious.

Enjoy the video of Jeff Ross and Ted McGinley on Jimmy Kimmel

I wonder if every star booted off Dancing with the Stars will be on Jimmy Kimmel. I expect the ritual burning of the dance shoes by Guillermo will happen each time.

Jeff Ross and Edyta Sliwinska’s Final Mambo Dance

I’ve noted my sadness about Jeff Ross and Edyta Sliwinska getting sent home, but I’m at least glad that the producers of Dancing with the Stars let us see Edyta dance again and didn’t put all of Jeff Ross’s practice go to complete waste. Here’s the mambo video of Jeff Ross and Edyta Sliwinska:

Dancing with the Stars Results Show Professional Dance

Tonight was the Dancing with the Stars results show. I won’t offer any spoilers on this post. I’ll save the analysis for a future post. Instead, I’ll save this post for what I think is the best part of Dancing with the Stars: the professionals dancing together. Here’s the video of the Dancing with the Stars professionals dancing on the September 25, 2008 results show:

Beautiful ballroom with some creative choreography is just wonderful to watch.

Jeffrey Ross and Edyta Śliwińska Eliminated – Dancing with the Stars

Jeffrey Ross and Edyta Śliwińska were elimnated from Dancing with the Stars before they were even able to perform their quickstep. That has to suck for Jeffrey Ross to practice so much and not get the chance to perform it. I think I can also speak for all men when I say that I’m sad we won’t get to see much of Edyta this season. Jeffrey also made me laugh so I’m sad to see him go too.

For those dancers that remain, check out the videos of their Quickstep and Mambo dances:

I’m missing Lance and Kim‘s videos, but I’ll update it if I’m able to find it.

Dancing with the Stars Season 7 Premiere

An exciting marathon of dancing on the Dancing with the Stars Season 7 premier episode. ABC really is lucky to have this show. It’s such an interesting mix of talent. Here’s a link to find a tonight’s list of all the songs and music from Dancing with the Stars.

Who were your favorite dancers? I’m not sure I have a rock solid favorite. One thing is happening for me. The professional dancers are becoming stars in their own right. I think I’m voting as much for the professional dancer as I am the stars.
