Shirley Ballas joins Kristyn Burtt and the gang to review Dancing With The Stars Week 6. The show begins at 7:00pm ET or you can play it afterwards below. We look forward to your thoughts as always. Thanks, Everyone!
What a great night on Dancing With The Stars. I thought the producers really stepped it up last night. I was so happy to see an opening number. My three favorite dances were Derek & Bindi, Nick & Sharna, and Tamar & Val!! I was sad to see Paula go, but, what a great run she had. I am going to miss her heart and entertaining, fun, and happy spirit. I don’t ever think I’ll forget her laugh either. Huge kudos to Louis too. I enjoyed him and this partnership so much, I’d love to see him return as a pro next season.
So, below are the scores again….
Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough 10-10-10-10 40 total
Tamar Braxton & Valentin Chmerkovskiy 10-10-10-10 40 total
Andy Grammer & Allison Holker 10-10-10-10 40 total
Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess 9-10-10-10 39 total
Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson 10-9-9-10 38 total
Hayes Grier & Emma Slater 8-8-8-8 32 total
Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas – 8-7-7-8 30 total
Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold 8-8-7-7 30 total
Paula Deen & Louis van Amstel 6-6-6-6 24 total- Eliminated
For some new interviews (though not many since the couples went to team rehearsals right after the show. The press only got 10 minutes to interview), first, be sure to catch a few interviews at E Online including one with Olivia Newton John and her daughter. People also chatted with a few of the couples. Glamour recaps the dances and the night. Be watching this link as they may post more later from behind the scenes including photos. Also, for lots more with Bindi and Derek, see Pure Derek Hough.

It’s super late/super early (depending on where you are), so I’m just gonna get right to it. These are your teams: Read more..
Team Dances and Halloween….this seems verrrry familiar. Keep an eye out for Courtney announcing the teams later tonight. I expect she’ll stick a link in here when/if she finds out. I’m getting sicker by the minute so I’m going to bed shortly.
Very happy with Bindi’s dance – will be interesting to see if she can pull it off. Could be a challenge.
ETA: Teams for team dances are here. Can I sleep now? -Court-
ETA2: Got the other song for the team dance, and one of the team names. A few other bits of intel over on the team dance post. Also hearing that there may be more than one Argentine tango this week…-Court-
ETA3: Scroll down for Team names and photos – guess who’s already in charge. Also, according to their Afterbuzz interview, Val and Tamar have foxtrot but that may change, which could well be code for “They pick on Tamar when in hold so Imma change our dance.” ~Heidi
ETA4: Linday and Alek say they are dancing their V.Waltz to Haunted by Beyonce which is apparently a new song (from the 50 Shades soundtrack – Court). Oh, and Emma may not be available, although Alek has a crush on her. Hmmm… Thanks to Jen for the heads up.
ETA5: Got Tamar & Val’s song – guess they are going for foxtrot after all. Carlos also shared on Instagram that he & Witney have paso doble. -Court-
ETA6: According to Mark’s instagram, they are doing a Paso to something from Edward Scissorhands. Scroll to the bottom for photo from Mark. And then, George Pennachio stars spilling songs and dances. There’s likely a press release somewhere but I’m not Vogue.
ETA7: Very interesting that Carlos’ song is missing from Broadway World’s post…hmmm….but anyway, our source has the song below for him.
ETA8: Nick and Sharna are dancing first, according to George Pennachio and Bindi is sometime in the second hour. I’m sure there’s more, but I’m playing catch up here. Hayes and Emma are in the first hour. Interesting to see Carlos is last.
Nick and Sharna – Argentine Tango (Song: “Bring Me to Life” by Evanescence)
Hayes and Emma – Waltz (Song: “Once Upon a Dream” by Lana Del Rey)

Halloween week is always on of my favorites 😈 Edward & Kim will be Paso ready for you Monday night. #dwts #teambaega A photo posted by markballas (@markballas) on
Week 6 already!! Wow…time flies.
Well, I think it’s been a good season so far – light on the manipulation and shenanigans (until last week). I expect that may all change tonight. Either way, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
T-minus 15 minutes…
LOL – Robert (Bindi’s bro) is on All Access – so cute.
So, great opening number…off the top of my head I saw Singing in the Rain (Derek), Flash Dance (Karina), ONE….what else….
CAI just said they would be looking for the style they were assigned. I smell BS already.
Thought Hayes and Emma did really well – a tiny bit hosed by the judges, I think I would have gone a bit higher. Read more..
