Sharna Burgess Talks About an Exciting Opening Pro Routine and Pro Packages

Sharna got on Periscope yesterday and gave out some interesting tidbits about the show! I have two clips below, but if you want to follow Sharna on Periscope or see the whole thing, click the link. She looks just stunning – the hair and the eyes. Flawless.

This is just two small parts of the whole periscope – when it starts she’s talking about Derek, the rest you can figure out from there. Very excited about both DWTS-related things she talks about. :-)

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. :-)

DWTS21 Watchout: Bachelorette Runner-Up Nick Viall To Dance On Dancing With The Stars??

US Weekly has a fun article up on the celebs who they think are dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars which we’ve heard before, but, here is a new name to add to the mix….Nick Viall!! Let us know what you think!

While Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe won’t be competing thanks to some not-so-fortuitous timing, there’s a chance another member of Bachelor Nation could: none other than two-time Bachelorette runner-up Nick Viall. Sources tell Us Weekly exclusively that the castoff has met with DWTS producers and could be added to the roster before the new cast is announced.

Pure Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Morning Media Start Up

Good Day All! Rise and shine!! First, how about some new pics of Julianne Hough at the Daily Mail. She looks so cute as she attended a Taylor Swift concert the other night. Derek Hough did so as well. You can view some new shots of him at Pure Derek Hough.

And for those wondering, Kaitlyn Bristowe will not be dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. It’s not the right time. You can read more at E Online. Allison Braver will not be dancing in this season either according to this tweet. Dang, she would have been a good one.

Also, US Weekly has a fun article about Nick Carter and some of the Backstreet Boys costumes he should recycle for Dancing With The Stars. *Awww, memories. Bring it, Nick! I can’t wait to see how he and Sharna will get creative in this area.

Excited to be a part of this season of @dancingabc! Thank you for all your support #dwts
