If you live in Britain, be sure to pick up a new copy of Hello! Magazine. Elena Samodanova and Gleb Savchenko are featured on the cover. There is also an interview inside about Gleb, Elena, and his Strictly Come Dancing’s partner Anita Rani. Here’s a take from the link. Too fun…
Strictly’s sizzling new heart-throb Gleb Savchenko has told how he is enjoying having two women in his life. In his first interview along with his wife Elena Samodanova, the 31-year-old Russian dancer who is partnered with TV presenter Anita Rani, tells HELLO! magazine: “It’s great having two women in my life but one is work, the other is family. When I wake up in the morning, I go to work and dedicate all my time to Anita. And when I go home, I give all my love and time to my wife and daughter.”
Elena tells HELLO! she absolutely agrees with the thousands of viewers who have called him the “most attractive man ever”.
“I absolutely agree with them,” Elena tells HELLO! when asked what it is like to be married to a man whose physique and dancing have sent women all over the world into a frenzy. “He’s a really good-looking guy. The attention he gets happens everywhere he goes.”
Elena shares the secret of his appeal, by adding, “Gleb is also a really charming, warm and caring person. He is a wonderful father to our four-year-old daughter Olivia and a great husband. That’s the secret. Any woman would want the person he is,” says Elena, 31, a talented choreographer who dances professionally with her husband, and is a judge on Russia’s Dancing with the Stars.
For those planning to watch “Strictly Come Dancing, it’s PREMIERE TIME!! Nathan has been warming us up for several weeks now for the show. If you haven’t read his recent blogs, you can do so here. In his latest blog, he told us the songs and dances for each couple. Anita Rani and Dancing With The Stars pro Gleb Savchenko will be performing a Cha Cha to ‘Rather Be’ by Clean Bandit. Jamelia and Dancing With The Stars pro Tristan MacManus will be Waltzing to ‘Do Right Woman, Do Right Man’ by Aretha Franklin. Nathan also informs us that the show today is an hour long and 6 couples will dance. Tomorrow the show is 1 hour and 20 minutes long and 9 couples will dance. We’re not sure when Gleb or Tristan will dance, but, we plan to post their dance videos as soon as we can in the space below for those who can’t watch or if you want to watch them again. Also, we’re going to sticky this post to the top of the page for today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday) to update on both shows and so you can find it to comment in. So, be sure you let us know what you think of everything in comments. Thanks, All, and DON’T FORGET TO VOTE too if you are able to! I’m so excited as I’ve never watched “Strictly Come Dancing” before. Thanks to Gleb and Tristan (and Elena Samodanova) for helping to bring fans from all over the world together. It’s so cool when you think about it.
Dancing With The Stars and Strictly Come Dancing’s Gleb Savchenko and wife, and judge of Dancing With The Stars Russia, Elena Samodanova, attended the National Lottery Awards at The London Television Centre on September 11, 2015 in London. Beautiful and just think, Stictly Come Dancing is coming up soon for those following the show.
Sharna Bugess has written such a touching new blog. She’s hoping her and Noah make the finals. No matter what happens, she feels they have already won. Read on…
I feel like I have already won DWTS just having Noah as my partner. He is my hero and a true champion. Noah deserves an award for overcoming his physical challenges and performing so beautifully each week. I have an amazing freestyle dance planned for Noah — I truly hope we make it to the final!
This season is my dream come true. Thank you to all our fans for being so supportive, we love and appreciate you!
Wow, last night’s show was one of the best shows I have ever seen in all my time watching Dancing With The Stars. The Judges Choice dances took the couples and the show to a whole new level. So, what do you think: Would you like to see them bring back the Judges Choice dances again in the future like I would? VOTE in our new Poll and let us know.
Moving on, let’s examine the scores from last night again….
Next, how about some media? If you go to ABC, the Daily Mail, and Entertainment Tonight, you can view some beautiful photos and a special segment on Noah and his proposal.
As for the interviews….first, go to E News. All four couples are interviewed on the night. It was an emotional one for them all in different ways and everyone is happy with last night’s dances. And here are some more interviews (we’ll add more interviews to each section as soon as more are released)….
Got Pap (I couldn’t resist posting Maks and Peta seen after the show):
Keep checking back for updates and thanks for everything for reading, commenting, and all of your love and support for this site!! xx
ETA: Below is more….
POPTVDotCom (you can see Gleb Savhcenko, Elena Samodanova, and Adelina Sotnikova too!):
ETA2: Fox News also talked with the couples. Be sure to see the link for more, but, below is a take…
Derek Hough was finally able to dance again for a complete number with Liukin after an injury marred his “DWTS” season and pro Sasha Farber had stepped in.
While Hough danced most of the routine, mentor Goodman did a few moves with Liukin at the end in a performance paying tribute to the veteran judge’s life.
On-the-mend Hough hopes to perform with Liukin if they make it to the finals, and the Olympian told reporters: “I think at the beginning of the season, I was more like, oh, the scores and the placement and now…Derek’s injury, and seeing the pain he’s been in…it’s taught me life is about the journey.”
ETA3: Here is a You Tube version of Noah and Sharna with Entertainment Tonight. Thanks to Andrea for the find…
