DWTS Russia Week 2: Gleb Savchenko And Adelina Sotnikova Take On The Cha Cha

GlebAdelina

Shortly, Gleb Savchenko and his partner Adelina Sotnikova are going to dance a Cha Cha in week 2 of Dancing With The Stars Russia. We’ll be reporting on their dance as soon as we can. In the meantime, go to Russia TV to watch the show go down around 8:45a.m ET. You’ll get to see Gleb’s wife Elena Samodanova judge as well!

ETA: Gleb and Adelina scored a perfect 50 points from the judges and placed 2nd for the night (adding: or did they tie? It’s hard to understand since it’s all in Russian). They killed it out there tonight. Words that came to mind first on their dance: stylish, sleek, fun, colorful, light, and sexy. They brought the power and the fun! I also loved the gentle and fun way Gleb taught her. Be watching this link as they should be posting the video for their dance soon as well as all of the dances!

ETA2: Here’s some video….

Gleb Savchenko And Elena Samodanova To Dance In Dancing With The Stars Russia

A huge huge congratulations are in order for Gleb Savchenko And Elena Samodanova!! The two dance pros are dancing in Dancing With The Stars in Russia!!! See their twitter accounts here and here. They are beyond happy!! I’m going to cry I’m so happy for these two!!! So so cool!!! Twitter pic below courtesy of Elena Samodanova.

ETA: We wrote to Gleb to get more information on he and Elena. Here’s what he wrote to us:

Yes I’m doing DWTS in Russia which premieres on the 7th of February. I’m dancing and not judging. Elena is doing lots of choreography and opening show numbers. She supposed to be in the show as a dancer, but at the very last moment production changed the whole concept and instead of 6 boys and 6 girls now they have 14 boys so it means that celebs are only women and it’s 14 couples.
I’m very excited and can’t wait who is my partner gonna be!

Thanks Gleb!!! Much luck to the both of you!!! We’ll be sure to vote!!!

Gleb Savchenko, Elena Samodanova, Sharna Burgess, Paul Kirkland Attend OK Magazine Event, American Idol Talk

Aren’t these some fun new photos below? Last night, Gleb Savchenko, Elena Samodanova, Sharna Burgess, and Paul Kirkland attended OK Magazine’s So Sexy L.A. Event at the LURE in Los Angeles, California. So cute….and what I’d give to see all four of these pros do Dancing With The Stars next season. 😀 Be sure to see more pics of them at the Getty Links in the pictures. There could be other pros who attended too. If so, let us know in comments.

And hey, what’s up with Gleb and Jennifer Lopez? I don’t know, but, this tweet sure is a fun teaser of them working together. Speaking of Jennifer, did you see her dance on American Idol last night? Wow is all I will say. Girl had some strong and powerful moves. Plus, the ending song with Keith Urban, Harry Connick. Jr, and Randy Jackson was the ultimate.

Happy Mother’s Day DWTS Goodies, Moms Of Meryl Davis And Charlie White Interviewed

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our beautiful Mothers out there. Below are just a few Dancing With The Stars things floating around for the holiday. First, check out the flowers Shirley Ballas received from Derek Hough. Beautiful…

ShirelyBallasDerekHough

And isn’t this another beauty? Gleb Savchenko posted this photo of his wife Elena and his daughter Olivia. He called Elena the “best Mom in the world”. *awww*

Also, Team USA talked with the Moms of Charlie White and Meryl Davis about Dancing With The Stars. Check out the part about the reunions that have taken below. More at the link on their skating and their tour.

“I really believe they’re in this together,” Cheryl said. “They both want each other to do well and are happy for each other. You don’t spend 17 years together and not support each other.”

A TV show likely isn’t going to change that for The Moms, either. Recently The Moms were together when the Stars on Ice tour stopped in Joe Louis Arena in their hometown of Detroit, and they enjoyed the fact that they were able to see each other for a bit there.

“Everything has been so chaotic and so crazy that we kind of gravitate to each other for our own comfort zone,” Jacqui said. “I guess there is a still a feeling of competition now (with “Dancing with the Stars) but it’s in a different way. Technically, we’re competitors, but honestly, I feel like having Meryl and Charlie on the show just doubles my chances of winning.”

The “Dancing with the Stars” shows have served as skating reunions as well. Each week it seems there has been a who’s who of skating stars in the stands. Charlie has had his longtime girlfriend, Tanith Belbin, (a 2006 Olympic silver medalist herself) there for support. Others who have popped in include Kristi Yamaguchi, an Olympic skating gold medalist and a “Dancing with the Stars” champion and Olympic champion and show runner-up Evan Lysacek.

Ok, more in a bit! 😉
