These are fun little videos although neither of them look particularly comfortable doing it. That’s okay – most humans aren’t. Especially on camera. Derek and Emma might have their work cut out for them. 😉
Can the new season of Dancing With The Stars not come sooner? *getting so excited*
Hey Dancettes! If you go to the Daily Mail, you can see a lot of the cast arriving to rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars yesterday. They all look happy and ready to get their groove on.
Below are more Dancing With The Stars Season 21 “Nae Nae” promos as well.
Yes, that’s right. As we reported yesterday, DWTS is going to be revealing one celebrity per day this week, starting today. We’re going to pseudo live blog it so that you can see who the celeb is as soon as we know them. Then, down below that, we’re going to take a stab at guessing who their partner might be. Now, if they actually reveal the partner along with the celeb (I tend to doubt it, since they’ll want maximum DRAMA along with a bigger announcement on September 2) we’ll simply change that table to reflect that.
ETA: Just teased it with a woman with longish hair behind a screen. Said a “wild choice”. Hmmmm….guesses?
ETA2: I shoulda got that.
ETA3: Reveal #2 coming up TODAY (Tuesday) at 6pm eastern on ESPN2!! Which sports figure will it be??
ETA4: According to the DWTS Official site the 2nd celebrity is Victor Espinoza. Awesome. I love him! ~Vogue
ETA5: Per the Backstreet Boys Facebook Page, Nick Carter is confirmed as the 3rd cast member for this season, and a source has confirmed that his partner is Sharna. Source also confirms that Victor is with Karina, and that Mark is with Alexa Vega. Allegedly, 2 celebs are supposed to be announced tonight on Extra…or Inside Edition…or something like that. Man, this is a clusterf*ck… -Court-
ETA6: Per DWTS360 on Twitter, Witney got Alex Vega’s husband (and Big Time Rush member) Carlos Pena. As was guessed by Jordan in comments. 😉
ETA7: We were discussing this a few days ago (and we had reported a rumor on him in July), but now we legit think that Andy Grammer MIGHT be on this season. Please note the word MIGHT.
ETA8: It’s official. Via his instagram Hayes Grier is dancing on Dancing With The Stars. ~Vogue
ETA9: ET Online confirms that both Alexa Vega & her husband, Carlos Pena Jr., are in; E! claims Kim Zolciak has joined the cast.
ETA10: E! News is claiming that Derek and Bindi showed up for rehearsal together. I don’t really take this as definite confirmation though – after all there are several studios there and couples could be rehearsing at the same time.
ETA11: And Chaka Kahn is confirmed via DWTS Twitter.
REVEAL #1 – Bindi Irwin
REVEAL #2 – Victor Espinoza
REVEAL #3 – Nick Carter
REVEAL #4 – Hayes Grier
REVEAL #5 – Alexa Vega
REVEAL #6 – Carlos Pena, Jr.
REVEAL #7 – Chaka Kahn
REVEAL #8 – Andy Grammer
REVEAL #9 –
REVEAL #10 –
REVEAL #11 –
REVEAL #12 –
We don’t know if it’s 12 or 13 right now as there have been conflicting reports. Both could have been right, in that perhaps they added someone last minute.
So, here is where we guess who their partner might be…until someone leaks something and we can confirm it, or it’s announced on September 2. Items in bold are confirmed – items not in bold are just our own guesses.
ETA: Changed Victor’s partner based on some intel we got. 😉
ETA2: I started sticking names in but when I started adding heights, I may have to reconsider…
ETA3: I feel safe confirming Derek and Bindi now.
Guess the Pairs!!
|Paula Deen||5ft. 5in.||5ft. 10in.||Artem|
|Bindi Irwin||5ft. 1in.||5ft. 10in.||Derek|
|Alexa Vega||5ft. 1in.||5ft. 8in.||Mark|
|Kim Zolciak||5ft. 9in.||6ft. 1in.||Tony|
|Chaka Khan||5ft. 4in.||6ft. 2in.||Keo|
|Victor Espinoza||5ft. 2in.||5ft. 5in.||Karina|
|Andy Grammer||6ft. 1in.||5ft. 7in.||Peta|

|Carlos Pena, Jr.||5ft.6in.||5ft. 3in.||Witney|
*My old research has Val at 5’9″ but I met him in the middle since Google has grown him since then. All heights are approximate. As I noted the other day – anyone can make any claim they want on the internet.
Dancing With The Stars Live Tour Brings The Glitter To Grand Rapids, Michigan (Photos, Video Highlights)
If you go to MLive.com, you can read a review of the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour when they performed at the Frederik Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan. You can also view some beautiful photos. Below are some highlights in a video as well….
Here we are again!! It’s about that time of year, folks.
And, as usual, the pros that I don’t want to be in, are already in. Or in Derek’s case….mostly in. He’s been telling fans in Meet and Greets that he’s likely going to be on but doesn’t want to confirm in case something happens to change that. DWTSGossip says that he did indeed say yes to this season – but as she correctly pointed out, he’s said no before and it turned into a yes. But, this is Derek’s life right now (many, MANY irons in the fire) – he’s not doing it for PR, he just doesn’t know what’s going to happen. Drives me crazy. I’ll be writing a blog soon on PureDerekHough.com about my Meet and Greet and how he answered a particular question I asked him that bodes very well for his future.
Val has also said he’ll be back and, as reigning champ, that’s no surprise. He also doesn’t seem to have the options that Derek does. I also will be curious to see how much they pimp and manipulate for him and his partner, now that he actually has a MBT. This could be one of the more interesting things about this season – if their behavior toward him changes, now that it’s mission accomplished. Someone please explain to me why Sharna or Emma don’t get the pimpage treatment?? Their social media accounts can’t touch the men’s, but still.
What about Mark? I expect him back as it helps his music career, and now his studio, for him to be on the show. I think it’s about time for him to have another shot at the MBT again – it’s not like he’s been handed ringers the past couple seasons (unlike some), he’s just been surprised and fortunate, like Derek has in the past. But I haven’t seen any talk from him on the matter. Read more..
This is so cool! I love when the pros do things like this…
Because it’s summer and there’s not much else DWTS-related to talk about – why not get a blast from the past and take a look at what some of our pros and judges do when they’re not performing on the show? And in this case, the activity in question is appearing in music videos – with varying results. Some of them are pretty cool, others are blink-and-you-miss-it cameos, and some…should probably stay buried forever Let’s check it out… Read more..
Fans of the hit ABC show, Dancing with the Stars got up close and personal with some of the show’s biggest names at Hammons Hall Sunday.
The Dancing with the Stars Live national tour hit Springfield.
Dozens of fans got to take pictures during a meet and greet with some of the dancers and headliner, reality star, Melissa Rycoft.
It was a special time, not only for the fans.
Dancer, Val Chmerkovskiy said, “I don’t take it for granted that people are making an effort to come out and spend time watching us do what we love.”
Reality star, Melissa Rycoft said, “Ballroom was very humbling to learn you know. I came in going, I can count, surely, this won’t be that difficult. It’s like trying to learn a new language every week. It’s really difficult.”
And I’m loving these instagrams. See why below…. Read more..
Kansas.com reviewed the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. They said the show had a lot of “fance footwork”. Here is more….
The athletic dances done on a spare stage of two sets of stairs and a catwalk ranged from an opening “Land of a Thousand Dances” – including the watusi – by Peta Murgatroyd and Chmerkovskiy to a hip-hop number by Chmerkovskiy and Witney Carson that probably got the biggest ovation and showed that Rycroft was right in giving credit to beyond-ballroom dancing.
Park City/Wichita country music fans even got to yell their approval before the company strutted to “Somethin’ Bad.” A Wichita woman in a long dress and platform shoes was the audience member chosen to fall into the arms of Keo Motsepe and Artem Chigvintsev – and to get very close and personal.
Not all the dancing was modern. Chigvintsev was back on stage for the first time after being injured, and he and Carson – she wearing a flowing gown – floated across the stage to the season-appropriate “Summer Wind.”
Being in Kansas enchanted Brit Emma Slater, who said she knew the state from “The Wizard of Oz.”
“My mom’s really jealous” of her daughter being in Kansas, Slater said, and then turned her back to the crowd and took a selfie with the audience for Mom.
