Dancing with the Stars Season 24, Week FIVE – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Disney week again – will be interesting to see if there’s any repeats from previous seasons, since is the 4th time they’ve done Disney.  I also anticipate some dance styles not really matching up with the songs they’re assigned to…guess we can look forward to a certain former pro throwing more shade at the current pros on Twitter *eye roll*…

ETA: According to a new Rehearsal Interview, Val and Normani have a Paso Doble for their Disney dance. More hints HERE. ~Vogue

ETA: Via ABC and Broadway World, the dances and songs are all listed below. Note that Donny Osmond, ZZ Ward, and Auli‘i Cravalho are performing LIVE. Also, Witney Carson teams with Donald Duck for a special dance. ~Vogue

ETA3: Dance order per George P. – Nick gets hosed yet again. Either he’s not getting the votes or they don’t want him to get the votes. Hard to say which at this point. Erika is in an even worse spot. Good on Rashad and Simone opening and closing the show. We’ll see if Rashad gets the most airtime. 😉

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. :-)

Nancy Kerrigan Writes On Her Foxtrot For DWTS And More

Nancy Kerrigan thought learning the Foxtrot would be a little easier to learn, but, things didn’t go as smoothly as she would have liked. Below is more from her new blog at Team USA….

And let’s not forget the dancing. I went into the week thinking that the foxtrot would be a little easier to learn. It’s closer to a waltz and didn’t have some of the attitude that the samba required. But I just wasn’t getting it as quickly as I thought I should and by now you know that creates some added tension for me and, as a result, for my partner.

So things progressed slowly throughout the week until finally, on Saturday, just before getting on a flight back to LA, I felt comfortable that I knew the dance. But now we had to take it back to the DWTS studio, run the number on the set, which is bigger than all of our rehearsal studios and make it work with costumes, props and lights…and a live studio and television audience.

Sunday and Monday were going to be interesting!

Sunday’s blocking went pretty well, I thought. Our number has a big tree on the dance floor, which is a little unusual but looked good and the dance felt good in rehearsal. With a little clean-up Sunday night, I felt like we would be ready. Only negative was that I was expecting my mother to come out for the show and her plans changed. Hopefully she can come later in the season…assuming I am still around.

More at Team USA. Note how her kids are coming for Disney Week.

PureDWTS Season 24 Week 4 – Media, Interviews, Scores, Week 5 Hints, And More

What a night on Dancing With The Stars. The couples were all so good. I usually have an idea who might win the season by now, but, not this time? Unreal. 😯 If you’d like to relive the dances again, see Idolxfactor’s New Tumbler Page (these videos work Internationally) or the official Dancing With The Stars You Tube.

So, let’s review the scores again. I have to say…. I was so happy for Rashad and Emma receiving almost all 10’s last night….

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater: Scores of 10-9-10-10 from the judges for a total of 39.
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber: Scores of 9-9-9-9 from the judges for a total of 36.
Heather Morris and Alan: Scores of 8-9-9-9 from the judges for a total of 35.
Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev: Scores of 8-9-8-8 from the judges for a total of 33.
Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess: Scores of 8-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 32.
Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy: Scores of 8-7-8-9 from the judges for a total of 32.
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold: Scores of 7-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 31.
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd: Scores of 8-7-8-7 from the judges for a total of 30.
Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko: Scores of 8-7-7-8 from the judges for a total of 30.
Mr. T and Kym Herjavec: Scores of 7-7-7-7 from the judges for a total of 28. (Eliminated)

For media starters, see People for all of their recaps and interviews and keep checking the link through out the day. ET also has a recap and a few interviews.

Glamour doesn’t have any new information on next week, but, I loved this bit on Mr. T for what happened last week. So deserving. I’m going to miss him and Kym….

After a tear-soaked couple of hours, Tom Bergeron delivered the tough news that Mr. T would be leaving the competition. While Mr. T certainly wasn’t a strong dancer by any means, he had captured the hearts of millions and was probably the most beloved contestant I’ve seen on this show in my eight seasons of covering it. In fact, last week the crew gave him a personalized “The People’s Trophy” after all the other contestants had gone home. Mr. T posed with every single member of the crew and gave them more in return than they could have ever expected. I’ve never seen grown men so excited to be around any celebrity, and goodness knows this show has seen a lot of them.

More at Glamour and note that it’s Disney Week next (in case you missed this info on the show last night).

Fox411 interviewed Erika Jayne after she danced.

Jayne continued to flaunt her sexiness on Monday night’s fourth week of “DWTS” competition, earning a score of 30 out of 40 with partner Gleb Savchenko for a cha cha tribute to Madonna’s “Express Yourself.”

Hers was one of the lowest scores of the night and Judge Len Goodman sighed that Jayne’s dance was “same old, same old. You go down that sexy route.” (She wound up in the bottom two with Mr. T, but “The A-Team star was the one eliminated on Monday).

Jayne was undeterred, telling FOX411, “I performed my ass off and will continue to do so next week. Whatever happens, happens. Let the chips fall where they may.”

She said of her over-the-top sexy style, “Some people love it, some people don’t, and that’s their choice.”

Fox411 also talked with the other couples. Here’s a take with Rashad which is making me cry again. Read more..

DWTS Season 24, WEEK FOUR – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Most Memorable Year…usually the night of rumba and (poorly done) contemporary. Be sure to check the “Who’s Dancing” post as the running order has been updated…and it ain’t lookin’ good for Nick, dang it. Not sure what they have against him.

Oh and CAI said she wants me to come on DWTS and dance with her. LOL. I think she really wants Derek and got me by mistake. 😉

Okay, these intros are SOOO scripted it ain’t even funny. I think it was Normani and Nick that gave it away – neither are actors so there you go. Read more..
