PureDWTS Season 19 Week 1 Poem: “Shaking 19 Seasons In The Ballroom”

It’s our resident poet, Lois!! She’s back putting week one all together with one of her fabulous poems….

SHAKING 19 SEASONS IN THE BALLROOM

19 Seasons shaking in the ballroom, spicy, peppery hot
The opening seasoned with a new feel, hitting the spot

Tom and Erin took their places as Hosts Extraordinaire
The judges became four, Julianne filled the fourth chair

The entire cast featured, with rousing spirit to Let’s Go
The time finally here for the magnificent ballroom show

The dancing pairs introduced to applause and cheers
Each season showcased many pairs through the years

The pairs shook off nerves, rising to their dancing feet
Their feet soon keeping the time to the dancing beat Read more..

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 19, Week 2 – Who’s Dancing What….and When? (Song Spoilers)

Well, well, well….DWTS tryin’ to spoil our spoilin’. Those crazy kids. Maybe some knickers were twisted by last weeks spoiling?? LOL

Hey, Lea mentioned doing something with “Back to the Future” or a “surprise” for next week – think next week is Personal Story week? ;-)

Anyway, here are the dances and a few songs for you folks. Derek is about as subtle as a sledge hammer with his song, and DWTS spoiled Janel’s and hinted at Alfonso’s. So, just to be contrary, we’re throwing in Randy’s too. Unless they’ve spoiled that somewhere as well. Bummed that Janel is almost certain to ruin my happy memories of “Call Me Maybe”.

Anyone else think that Sadie and Mark will KILL the Jazz?? I sure do.

Antonio and Cheryl – Rumba
Vote: 1-800-868-3402

Tavis and Sharna – Cha Cha Cha
Vote: 1-800-868-3412

Bethany and Derek – Foxtrot (Song: “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor ) …Read more

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. :-)

DWTS Season 19, Week 1 Discussed on Afterbuzz TV

Carrie Ann Inaba Sizes Up The “Feel Good” And Sexy Sexy” Cast Of Dancing With The Stars

Carrie Ann Inaba has written a new blog at Parade. She rates her favorite couples on Dancing With The Stars so far in the “Feel Good” and “Sexy, Sexy” categories. So far, at the top of those lists are Alfonso Ribiero and Randy Couture. Lots more at Parade including her thoughts on Julianne Hough and pictures of her fur babies.

Speaking of her fur babies, she also recently founded the Carrie Ann Inaba Animal Project (CAIAP, caiap.org) to help cats and dogs in several different ways. “I have always wanted to build a sanctuary to give animals a safe place to live out their lives,” she explains. “Since I was a young child, this has been the dream. Starting CAIAP is all about working towards that. It will take a lot of financial support to get there, but I have faith we will.” To read an article about it, see Animal Wellness Magazine.

DWTS Season 19 Week ONE RESULTS!! Let’s discuss tonight’s show! (Spoilers)

Yay – a results show!! Let’s hope for some great dancing!! Maybe material for cheesecake, if Courtney and I are feeling up to it. :-)

Once again, comment to your hearts contents, as long as you remember the show night rules.

  1. Our server gets totally hosed when people sit at their computer and click “refresh” constantly. Post a comment, then walk away for five minutes so that others have a chance…and so that Courtney and I can actually post on the site. :-)
  2. THIS SITE IS NOT TWITTER. Do not post like you are on twitter. You get one warning and then I put you in time out. :-) We need context and content. Believe it or not there are a lot of people who don’t watch the east coast feed of the show, so they don’t know what the hell you’re talking about when you post a comment that says, “Boy, that sucked.”  If you want to say “____ and ____’s dance was not good at all, crappy choreo” that’s fine. That would be context. It is good. :-D  Remember, if you post five one liners in five minutes, you’ve broken rule number 1. ;-)

Lots of fun ppl in the audience like…..RALPH MACCHIOOOOOOOOO !!! (I love him.)

Nice opening dance by the women – Allison and Whitney pretty much rule this style but they were all awesome. :-)

Thought for sure they were gonna call Betsey safe. That they didn’t makes me question whether she actually IS safe.

So, I guess we’re putting four in jeopardy? Lea? That’s just wrong.

Allison is just a BEAST.

Oh. My. God. Derek’s screen test. Best thing I’ve ever seen. And neither he nor Julianne had a clue what was going to be shown.

Okay….The four in jeopardy are:

Michael and Emma

Betsey and Tony

Lea and Artem

Lolo and Keo

And tonight, leaving the ballroom is…..(This was a REAL BOTTOM TWO with Betsey being the other half)

LOLO AND KEO

Courtney’s Pick: Lolo and Keo

Heidi’s Pick: Lolo and Keo

Vogue’s Pick: Lolo and Keo
