So, this is why Jermaine Jackson was seen in the rehearsal parking lot last week. Him and Tommy go way back. Cool and thanks to OK! Magazine for the footage…
I was expecting Derek Hough to be listed in the new ABC press release (Via Broadway World) for “Nashville”, not Tom Bergeron. Read on for more. This is going to be cool…
“I’m Coming Home To You” – Rayna’s campaign to raise Highway 65’s sales and profile finds her performing her latest single on “Dancing with the Stars.” But when she agrees to be shadowed by a reporter all weekend for the cover of a magazine, just as Luke hopes to rekindle the romance, she realizes she may have pushed her public access too far. Juliette struggles to prepare for motherhood alone, and Will and Layla brace themselves for the premiere of their reality show, on “Nashville,” WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network. Tom Bergeron (host of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars”) guest stars as himself.
Note Derek Hough fans: Derek isn’t listed, so, he may not be starring in this episode. Though, watch just in case.
If you’d like to see a drawing of Sadie Robertson’s costume for tonight on Dancing With The Stars, see E Online. I love these costume teasers every week.
Hm…any guesses on who she’s supposed to be for Halloween?!
“They always get it perfectly!” Sadie exclusively tells E! News of her dress, costume designed by Daniela Gschwendtner. “I can’t wait for everyone to see this one.”
Glamour spent the day with Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba. Lots of fun things at this link.
Also, below is something to take in before the show tonight. Hilarious…
Thanks to Lori for the heads up!

Julianne Hough was on the Rachel Ray Show today. Below you can listen to her talk about Derek and the Move Live On Tour. She also talks on Dancing With The Stars and judging. You can watch her talk on her new house and cook too here as well.
Janel Parrish has written a new blog at People. She writes of the romance rumors with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy which you can read in a take below. Note how she’d like to keep their feelings personal. You can also read on their new dance where she’s hoping Pretty Little Liars and Dancing With The Stars will collide. More below and at the link.
As far as the rumors of romance between Val and me, I just want people to focus on the dancing that we do and the hard work that we do. I appreciate that people see that we have chemistry, and we absolutely do, but whatever feelings we have, those are our feelings and those are personal.
This week we’re working on a Viennese Waltz, and we’re actually going to do a Pretty Little Liars theme for Halloween. We are dancing to the show’s theme song, “Secret” by The Pierces, so that’s going to be amazing. I don’t want to give too much of it away, but it will be very much my character but more of a twist. It’s going to be fun.
I’m looking forward to showing my fans how much we love them. I know that the PLL army is very supportive of our team. They’ve been voting for us and watching the show, and I love that. I want to give back to them and show them how much I love Pretty Little Liars and how much I love their support. I’m looking forward to making my two worlds right now – Dancing with the Stars and Pretty Little Liars – collide. I’m really, really excited to show the fans what we’ve come up with. I think they’re going to love it!
ETA: Here is a sneak peek into this routine from Entertainment Tonight…
Be sure to check out a new interview at TV Guide with Sadie Robertson. She talks of how much dancing on Dancing With The Stars has helped her to grow. She no longer feels she has to hide behind her family. She also talks on her rumba last week. Below is a sneak peak on their team dance and her Paso Doble with Mark ballas.
This week will feature team dances. How’s that going?
Robertson: Yes. Because it’s Halloween Week, our team is called Team Creepy. That was not our original name, but that’s what it’s ended up as. It’s me, Alfonso, Antonio and Tommy Chong. A good group. We only get to have two rehearsals. That’s the tricky part. Monday night after the show, we practiced until 12:00 at night, and that was just for the pros to get the choreography. And then [Friday], we had our second and last rehearsal, and that was for them to teach it to us and us to get it all down. Can you imagine? It’s ridiculously crazy. It’s different for me because I’m 17 and it’s easy to learn, because I’m in school and I’m active and I can do that. But for Tommy, on the other hand, he’s in his 70s. It’s a little harder. So, we’re getting there. We’re having a little bit of a hard time, but we’re getting there. We all have to really be on our game, because if anybody messes up, we’ve just got to keep going.
And what are you and Mark working on for your individual dance?
Robertson: We are working on the paso doble, and the story line is that I’m a little girl that’s going through a cemetery — typical, right? — and then Mark is a zombie and he comes out of the grave and he’s chasing me. The whole thing is very Halloween-themed. I honestly think it’s kind of creepy, I’m not going to lie. I’m literally scared while we dance. Because he’s going to be dressed as a zombie, and I don’t do well with zombies.

Well, this week is interesting. And hard. Why? Well, Michael got a 30. That makes several things uncertain. Is he the weakest dancer left? That’s debatable. Honestly, I don’t think either Tommy or Antonio is that much better than him, although Tommy is equally charming in my book. This puts Antonio at a disadvantage – it all hinges on his fanbase.
But then…some of you remember my analysis of “Jeopardy” I’m sure. Basically, if I remember correctly, about half the time, Jeopardy is actually an indication of who will be going home soon, but ONLY for the person last to be called safe. Usually two weeks after being put in jeopardy and being last to be called safe. This is NOT as true if you are in the semi-final. Anyway, Antonio hasn’t even been in jeopardy, has he? And he’s definitely never been last to be called safe. The other thing that was obvious from that analysis was that it’s hard to tell what their pattern is until the season is over. But, Jonathan was last to be called safe two weeks before he left. Betsey was in the bottom two and was eliminated in week 4. Michael has been last to be called safe a few times now. And Janel was last to be called safe this past week. Maybe it means something, maybe it doesn’t. More likely it does for Michael in the near term.
Anyway, let’s take a look at the scores and the percentages. Read more..
