Dancing with the Stars Season 19, Week 8 – Who’s Dancing What….and When? (Song Spoilers)

Heh. Almost forgot about this post. Not that it matters since everything is  out there anyway.

I got some of the info on the dances from various videos, some from Wiki – if you see anything wrong, let me know. I was traveling a large part of the week, as was Courtney, as a result we lost track a bit. :-) There were a few days where I didn’t know which end was up.

I will say that it will be interesting to see how Janel will do with the quickstep, where the frame is so important. She’s gotten away with not having to worry about that overly much – and straight up said that was why she was glad she got contemporary. I think Beth will be fine and I have a feeling Alfonso will be back at the top of the leaderboard – we’ll see. Lea’s dances are why I’m afraid that even if she does make it through this week, she won’t make the finale. Samba? Yikes. Paso maybe better for her. I also expect a lot from Sadie’s Jive. Again, we’ll see.

ETA: So, Alfonso is going first – I think he safely can, with no issues.

ETA2: Not sure on which versions of those songs are being used, so I guessed. :-)

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 8: Dancing by the Numbers!

So…

Where to start?

Yes, I do think that the scores were determined in advance by the judges because they wanted to keep Janel safe for another two weeks. Did they know it was necessary? Does it matter? I’m not sure the judges know, but at the end of the day, they underscored Sadie, in particular, relative to Janel. Janel’s dance was good, but if it was a dance worthy of a perfect score, so was Sadie’s and Alfonso’s – and Bethany’s for that matter.  But perhaps those three don’t need the help, eh?

By giving Janel 43 points last week, they’ve essentially sent her all the way to the semi-finals based on one less than perfect dance. Saved her for last week AND this coming week. This way, it is likely they get their preferred finale of Alfonso, Sadie, Bethany and Janel – sucks to be Lea and Tommy, barring someone not getting the votes we think they are. The semi-final scoring will tell the tale. If Janel suddenly isn’t all that great, it means she ain’t getting the vote (like we suspect) – after all, the judges want to be RIGHT. They want their preferred finale, but in the end they want their scores to be close to how the votes are going. Pride.

Anyway, I can’t even work up any righteous indignation about this anymore. It’s so predictable. Young actress works for ABC = Semi-final, whether she deserves it or not. And really, she is dancing better than Lea right now – I just don’t *LIKE* her. Not only do I get stealth mean girl vibe, but that gross showmance she had going on with Val was just annoying after a season centered on an over the top showmance.  Yuck.

But, on to the scores. Who’s got what and how much damage did the judges do this past week? Read more..

Show Details For The Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Quarterfinals

ABC Media Net has released show details for Dancing With The Stars for Monday night. I was hoping they would confirm Nicole Scherzinger as performing for what the Daily Mail is reporting. They didn’t…not yet.

“Episode 1909” — The six remaining couples on “Dancing with the Stars” will dance to a song and dance style voted on by viewers for “AMERICA’S CHOICE” night on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET). For the first time ever, America has creative control of the couples’ first dance, asking fans throughout the week via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for their input on wardrobe, set design and visual effects. Each couple will perform two full routines including an individual original dance and a trio dance. For the trio dance, couples had the opportunity to pick an eliminated pro or troupe member to enhance their performance and highlight the strengths of each star. The trio dance styles include the Argentine Tango, Paso Doble, Samba and Foxtrot. At the end of the night, one couple will be eliminated and five couples will move on to the semi-finals.

The “Trio Groups” are:
Alfonso Ribeiro, Witney Carson and Lindsay Arnold

Bethany Mota, Derek Hough and Tony Dovolani

Janel Parrish, Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Keo Motsepe

Lea Thompson, Artem Chigvintsev and Henry Byalikov

Sadie Robertson, Mark Ballas and Emma Slater

Tommy Chong, Peta Murgatroyd and Sharna Burgess

Afterbuzz TV And Henry Byalikov Review Dancing With The Stars 19 Week 8

Ready for another Dancing With The Stars from the Kristyn Burtt and the Afterbuzz TV Gang? If so, check it out below and let us know what you think. This time Henry Byalikov joins them. He reveals some cool behind the scenes information. He also gives us some sneak peeks for the upcoming show. At the end, he talks of his plans for the off season….note how he plans to do Sway and the Dancing With The Stars cruises. Though he won’t be in the new Dancing With The Stars Tour since those dates conflict with his schedule. He said the same could be true for others with the same or other obligations. Does this mean Peta, Sharna, Artem, Tony, and Val won’t be in the new tour too…especially since some of them are also doing Ballroom With A Twist as well?

PureDWTS Season 19 Week 8 Poem: “The Dynamic, Duo-Licious Party”

Our resident poet always knows how to sum up the week! Here is Lois again with another goodie….

THE DYNAMIC, DUO-LICIOUS DANCE PARTY

Invitations were sent, there was a party feel in the ballroom air
Duos of every type filled the dance card, with fun and with flair

THE DYNAMIC, DUO-LICIOUS DANCE PARTY began in style
Each duo depicting their characters with gusto and with a smile

Duos from Classic TV, from the Bible, from country, from a play
Brought delightful fun to the dance floor in their own unique way

A Dance-Off with Duos in the Dance Party, ended the rousing night
Each Duo blended together with distinction and with grand delight

ALFONSO AND WITNEY
CHA CHA CHA TO TRUST

Zip-line entrance, brilliant depiction
Super team, smart, smooth, tight, instincts

BETHANY AND DEREK
SALSA TO BABALU

Cooking with Classic TV lines, animated fun
A Babalu Bonanza, brand-spanking brilliant

Finest choreography from Val, pure emotion, breathtaking
Gorgeous and glorious in every way, what dance is about

Staccato, tango feel, stunning set-cup
With confidence, classy, sassy, crazy, wild

Swinging entrance on a vine, Lord of the Jungle
Best dance, nice lines, runs own race with pride
