Where’s the Dancing with the Stars Results Show?

The following is a guest post by Lois A Troutman.

Folks, I am eagerly awaiting DANCING WITH THE STARS! My stomach is tied in knots waiting for Monday night! Can ya please get here already! Typical of me before the season starts. Waiting for the show is like waiting in a doctor’s waiting room. Sometimes we wait and wait and wait………….. Oh pshaw, you get my drift!

I am having butterflies fluttering around in my stomach waiting. And, I say where is my results show? I was none too happy when ABC announced they had eliminated the Tuesday night show. I got much pleasure from having two nights out of the week to watch dancing. I want to see more dancing, not less.

How can they possibly fit everything in two hours? Something has to be sacrificed. There has to be less attention paid to the sparkling, spectacular pro dances. I suppose one good thing might be the elimination of the musical guests. But I was very happy to see those performers that I favored perform on results shows. Yes, the show had a lot of “filler” but at least I had another night of the show I love so much.

I hope ABC at least has a two night finale this season. And goes back to two nights in Season 18. I suppose though that the suspense of elimination won’t take as long because there won’t be enough time in the two hours to play the “elimination game.”

I will just have to get used to one night, grin and bear it. Light bulb just goes off in my head! I can watch Monday night’s show on Tuesday night! There ya go, by jove I have found a solution! I can still have my two nights of dancing! Glory be!

So, folks out in DANCING WITH THE STARS land, are you:

A. Going to bleed mirror balls if you don’t have a results show?
B. Reserve judgment until the season is in full swing, seeing how only two hours shakes out?
C. You are breathing a sigh of relief that you don’t have to sit through a results show?
D. You are taking the middle out of the dance floor because you don’t care one way or the other.

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

Dancing with the Stars Season 15 – Week 4 Pre-Predictions

Ok… just to get this out of the way… predictions are shot for Week 4. Since there are only four dances that have been on the show before (Charleston, Mambo, Jitterbug and Bolero) while the rest have either been a group dance (Rock N Roll, Disco) or were featured in the Results show by other dance groups (Bollywood, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Broadway)… there is no way I can truly predict scores… but I sure as hell will try. :) Who could have predicted what the dance pool was going to include? I thought it would re-introduce dances that just didn’t have some exposure on the show as I posted last week.

So how will the scores stack up with the data that I have available?

See what I mean by this week’s predictions being a crap shoot? I mean seriously! The only dances that have any scores that I could work off of are highlighted in yellow and are the closest to “traditional” ballroom dances. While the ones in orange are the dances that are absolutely not your traditional ballroom dances. Those that are left have actually been featured on the show in group routines for the season cast.

What I did find to be interesting is that for those that were given the traditional dances that overlapped with my dance pool… I had actually suggested them to have:
Emmitt Smith: suggested either Bolero, West Coast Swing or Two Step
Shawn Johnson: suggested either the Mambo or Two Step

Before I move on… Warning: extra long, YouTube video link heavy post to follow. Also Lori added additional commentary wherever she is able in regards to Week 4′s dances / couples. Also there is a little bit of a conversation going on in the comments in the DWTS Season 15 Stats Class Week 4′s Challenge. Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 15 Stats Class – Week 4′s Challenge

Since this post would be moot point come the Results show tonight I figured I would help give an idea of various dances and what not that are available from throughout the seasons:

Looking at the above breakdown there are eight dances that had minimal exposure throughout the series, but do I define “seldom used dances”? Well they are those dances that we have only seen once in a small handful of seasons. When looking at the number counts there are eight dances that were danced less than 25 times… actually the most from this group would be 11. Here are those dances and when they were featured:
Season 7 Week 5
Hustle, Jitterbug and West Coast Swing

Season 8 Week 4
Lindy Hop

Season 9 Week 4
Bolero, Charleston, Lambada and Two-Step

So now let’s look at how the dances scores were averaged and compared to one another:

Let us also look at the dances that are not in the Top Ten highest scoring dances and see where all the other dances lie:


Those dances highlighted in “yellow” are those that not only have had minimal exposure on the show, but also scored rather low in the grand scheme of things. Those dances that are highlighted in “pink” are those that have had some exposure on the show but still scored low. If anything… if I was helping produce the show I would probably use the above dances (and maybe include other dances that have had minimal exposure on the show like the Charleston, Jitterbug, Lambada, and Hustle) as the pool of dances to be used for the upcoming week.

Looking through all the dances that have been featured on the show and have had some exposure I realized some interesting things. There were several dances that were introduced into the show in the midway point of the series and have been staples ever since (Argentine Tango, Viennese Waltz), while there were other dances that were “taking a break” as it were but then have been staples since them (Salsa, Tango, Waltz).

The Mambo was only featured for a handful of seasons in the middle of the series: Seasons 3 thru 7.

So knowing all this… which dances did I pull the below preferences from? Well the easiest would be the following: Bolero, Lindy Hop, Two-Step and West Coast Swing. These four dances not only got the least amount of exposure on the show but also had average low scores during their short run on the series.

The Mambo has been on the show for only five seasons and was scored low frequently so I would toss that dance into the mix.

Finally what about the other four? Aka the Charleston, Hustle, Jitterbug, and Lambada? It is hard to say since they ranked high on the scoring table. I tended to shy away from these dances in my quick analysis below, but feel free to include these in your comments if you feel inclined that you’d like to see a particular celebrity dance these dances.

So my final pool would be from Bolero, Lindy Hop, Two-Step, West Coast Swing and Mambo.

But before we start figuring out what dances would provide a challenge to each of the dancers… let’s look at who has already attempted any of the above dances?

So in regards to dances: Shawn, Melissa and Gilles all have a little bit of an edge by having done the Lindy Hop in their original season, but the Lindy Hop had an average score that is in the higher half. Personally, if I were to choose dances that I would like to see next week they would include the Bolero, West Coast Swing and Lindy Hop.

So knowing the above… what dances could possibly challenge the individual dancers? (Warning very long post to follow)

DWTS12, Week 8 – Adele, Dancing With The Stars “Greatest Results Show Performances”, & More On Tap

Get ready for another two hour Results Show tomorrow night. According to ABC Media, tomorrow night’s show is dedicated to the “Greatest Results Show Performances”. Not only that, but, Grammy Aawrd winning artist Adele will perform two songs. There is something special planned for the “Spotlight Segment” again as well. More in a take below. Be sure to read the link in full which outlines both tonight and tomorrow night’s shows. Who’s ready I say? :D

On TUESDAY, MAY 10 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), two hours of “Dancing” get underway with the special, “Dancing with the Stars: Greatest Results Show Performances,” featuring the most extraordinary Results performance moments in the show’s history. Then, on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show: Episode 1208A” (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET), another couple will be asked to leave the ballroom and this season’s semifinalists will be determined in what could be the most dramatic elimination so far. Also this week, Grammy Award-winning artist Adele will perform two songs, the classic ballad “Natural Woman,” with Cheryl Burke and Louis Van Amstel on the dance floor, and the enormously popular first single from her No. 1 bestselling album, “21.”

In this week’s “Spotlight Segment,” all eyes will be on Hefa Tuita (19) and his brothers, Solane (16) and Tu’iniua (12), as they perform to LMAFO’s Party Rock Anthem. The “Dancing with the Stars Spotlight” features talented performers whose lives have been changed forever by dance. Born in Hawaii and raised in Utah, all three boys have trained in hip hop, jazz and ballet throughout childhood thanks to their father, who worked three jobs to keep his sons in dance school. When their father passed away in 2008, the eldest brother began dancing professionally as a means to support his family and still continues to do so, working with such artists as Rich and Tone and Chris Brown.

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.
