DWTS 10 Dance Comparison Chad & Cheryl

Another celeb bites the dust… right before the finals! So sad… but to commemorate Chad & Cheryl’s dances, we’re going to take a quick trip down memory lane for the two songs that Chad & Cheryl recycled from previous couples.

The first song is Cancion Del Mariachi by Los Lobos and Antonio Banderas Los Lobos & Antonio Banderas - Desperado (The Soundtrack) - Cancion del Mariachi (Morena de Mi Corazon) both couples did this as a Paso Doble…

This was first done by Season 3′s Mario Lopez & Karina Smirnoff on Week 4:

And here is Chad and Cheryl‘s version.

Secondly there is the song If You Don’t Know Me by Now as done by Simply Red Simply Red - Simply Red 25 - The Greatest Hits - If You Don't Know Me By Now (though it was originally recorded by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes - Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes - If You Don't Know Me By Now) both of the following couples did this as a Waltz.

Originally danced by Season 4′s Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough. (Start at 1:26)

And finally Chad and Cheryl‘s Waltz from Monday night:

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... =)

DWTS 10 Niecy & Louis (and Others) Dance Comparisons

Another week, another celebrity eliminated. This time it was Niecy Nash and her professional partner Louis van Amstel that was given the ax. After going through all of their songs, it came to my attention that they only have one recycled song! La Bamba by Ritchie Valens Ritchie Valens - The Best of Ritchie Valens - La Bamba

Here is that Samba as done on Week 5 by Niecy Nash and Louis van Amstel:

This song was previously done as a Mambo by Paulina Porizkova & Alec Mazo of Season 4 on Week 2. (Start at 1:57)

DWTS 10 Jake & Chelsie Dance Comparison

Hello all! Since Jake is the latest celeb to leave the show… naturally this week’s Dance Comparison will involved Jake & Chelsie.

Surprisingly, their only recycled song is Walk Like an Egyption by the Bangles The Bangles - Bangles: Greatest Hits - Walk Like an Egyptian. Here they danced the Quickstep on Week 3:

Which was originally danced by Laila Ali and Maksim Chmerkovskiy of Season 4 Week 9… also as a Quickstep.

Honestly, it isn’t a very fair comparison, since this was Laila’s 2nd Quickstep and done later in the season, while this was Jake’s first Quickstep and done earlier in the season. Regardless this is comparing choreography to recycled songs… :D So what do you think?

Reunited and It Feels So Good…

…la la la…don’t remember the rest of the words to that song. :-) Julianne ran into an old friend in Utah today. :-) And made it clear that she knows all about Apolianne. LOL.

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. :-)
