Pure Dancing With The Stars – Just a Couple Of Reminders & A Future Note

Just a couple of reminders! Don’t forget to watch the Nancy Grace Show on the HLN network at 8:00pm ET for Part 2 of her “Dancing Special” tonight. If you missed Part 1, be sure to see it here. It was a gas and I’m betting tonight will be too! If nothing else, it’s great for those suffering from DWTS withdrawals. 8O Nancy tweeted that the show will have “Child dance phenoms” as well….


Tonight! Brand new dancing show w/ child dance phenoms!! http://t.co/5yBb6NHe

Also, Dancing With The Stars Champ J.R. Martinez is the Grand Marshal of the 123rd Tournament Of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA. If interested, you’ll be able to watch the parade go down LIVE on ABC and NBC at 11:00am ET on Monday, January 2nd. If you’d like to watch it commercial free and in 3D, you’ll be able to view it on the HGTV channel at the same time. In the meantime, TV Guide has a little interview with J.R. where he talks on the honor of doing it and why (his answer might shock you. lol). He also mentions Dancing With The Stars and his future plans in acting.

On a future note and if you live or would like to travel to New York, Mark Ballas is giving a one night concert at The Landmark on Main Street in Port Washington, NY on January 27th at 8:00pm. You can read more about the concert at Playbill as well as how you can obtain tickets.

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.

Dancing With The Stars “Season Retrospective” December 23rd On The Nancy Grace Show

Last night on the Nancy Grace Show, she mentioned that her December 23rd show will be an hour devoted to Dancing With The Stars and her time dancing with Tristan MacManus. If it’s like her shows in the recent past, she may have other stars of Dancing With The Stars as guests as well. So, mark your calendars. I really have to give it to Nancy. Along with Tristan, she’s went full out promoting Dancing With The Stars and it’s pros and celebrities. I hope she’ll keep doing this each season. She does a great job and she’s funny too! Nancy’s show airs weeknights at 8:00pm ET on the HLN channel.

Thanks to TristanDWTSFans at twitter and her facebook page for the heads up on this news!!

ADDING: According to Dancing With Me Studios and Pulse Creative NY at twitter, Nancy, dancers, and guests (see below which also includes a new picture of Maks and Tristan) are in New York City at Dance With Me Soho studios filming for this segment today. Watch these two accounts closely for updates!!

Vote for Your Favorites in the DWTS13 End-of-Season Awards!

It’s time once again to vote for your favorites/least favorites in our semiannual end-of-season awards! While Heidi & I’s cheesecake awards are more humorous (and just bestowed by she & I), this is a chance for you guys to weigh in on the bests and worsts of this past season, and for us to be a bit more serious.  To see examples of past award winners, check out the results of the season 11 & 12 end-of-season awards.

Of course, there are some guidelines before you vote.  Keep in mind that we tried to pick the most likely candidates for each category – ones that we felt most of you would probably pick, if asked.  There is no point in listing a dance like Ron & Peta’s cha-cha as a candidate for best dance of the season :-P However, if your pick for a certain award is not listed, there is an “other” box that you can chose and write-in your own nomination.  But be warned: if I cannot read what you wrote, I’m not even gonna bother counting it.  Spell check, kids :-) And if you write in something that’s already been listed as one of the choices, I’m throwing your vote out on principle alone – kind of like those tests that sees if you read all the instructions before proceeding.  Things were a bit less chaotic for last season’s awards than for season 11’s, but I still got quite a few badly misspelled, grammatically confusing, and downright incoherent answers that I had to throw out.  For the sake of my sanity, kids – at least try to make your choices clear ;-)  That said, VOTE AWAY! We’ll give you guys a week or two to get your votes in, and then we’ll reveal the results at a later date.

Pure Dancing With The Stars 2011 Off Season Questionnaire #1

Ok Dancettes! Time for your first questionnaire after the wrap up of Season 13!! :D If interested, answer each question below to the best of your ability and have fun!!!

1. If the show were to make room for Carson Kressley on the show in some way, where would you like to see him placed?

2. My five top dances on Dancing With The Stars Season 13 were __________________. (This can include the Pro and Troupe dances as well)

3. After you saw Tony and Chynna’s “Mission Impossible” finale dance, did you think the viewers made the right decision in letting them go early? How about Mark and Kristin’s finale dance? Did watching them change your mind on their early elimination?

4. From all the celebrity contestants on Dancing With The Stars 14 and if there was a Congeniality Award, which one celebrity deserved it the most? (name only one)

Bonus question: How are you filling your Monday and Tuesday nights now that Season 13 is over?

My answers:

1. I’d want Carson to be a weekly fashion correspondent I think. I hope he dances in some new skits too in some way.

2. My top five dances from this last season in were; Derek and Ricki’s ‘Psycho’ dance, Val and Peta’s ‘Enchanted Melody’ dance (so beautiful!), Carson, Anna, and company’s ‘Vogue’ dance, Carson and Anna’s ‘Move Like Jagger’ dance, and Derek and Anna’s DaD. Honorable mention: Derek and Julianne’s Jive, Maks and Hope’s Quickstep

3. These finale dances didn’t change my mind any. Although Chynna, Tony, Mark, and Kristin were entertaining and it was good to see them again, they still went out at the right time in the competition I think. Chynna’s ballet moves were repetitive and they didn’t do anything different. Kristin’s legs were still a little messy.

4. Congeniality Award? CHAZ! What sealed it for me is when the entire cast would come to hug him after he was called safe each time. I don’t remember that ever happening before.

Bonus question: Monday night, we drove around and looked at Christmas lights going up in the area. Tuesday night’s TV slot has been replaced with GLEE and watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel. :D Has this been an easy adjustment? No! lol

J.R. Martinez On Life After Winning Dancing With The Stars

What’s J.R. Martinez been up to since winning the Dancing With The Stars Mirror Ball? Has he missed his partner Karina Smirnoff, dancing, and rehearsing? Find out in this new interview on Access Hollywood where J.R. talks all about it. He brought his Mirror Ball for the interview as well which he hasn’t been seperated from since he won it. LOL! Note the mentions on Derek, his girlfriend, and what he says on his Mom as well.
