Extra Interviews With The Cast Of Dancing With The Stars After Week 4

Below are some new interviews from Extra after last night’s dances on Dancing With The Stars. They are jam packed with lots of fascinating stuff too….

PureDWTS Season 24, Week 4 – Power Rankings

So many things…so many interesting things to talk about this week 😉 As expected on pretty much every “most memorable year” night, tears were shed, and those who went with more of an emotional story stood out, while those who went the fun route tended to fade into the woodwork. I found the running order a bit interesting – two back-to-back rumbas to start off with; and source wasn’t 100% sure, but apparently after Sunday’s camera blocking, Rashad tentatively had the pimp spot, but there appeared to be some question as to when Normani would go, as Fifth Harmony apparently had some scheduling conflict (I’m guessing they couldn’t stay the whole time, since we didn’t see them again after they sang with Normani). Guess they switched the game up – although I actually think Rashad’s dance ended up being more impactful by NOT going last, as they seemed to give him a bit more time than they did Bonner; but not too much time, because like Mr. T & Simone, Rashad did not get a post-score interview with Erin. You notice a bit of a disturbing pattern here? 🙁

Of those who DID get an interview with Erin, three of the five male pros seemed to get diarrhea of the mouth, and ended up completely hogging the mic from their partners – Val kinda got patronizing, Maks was glibly trying to cast next season already, and Gleb…was busy babbling something about being sexy, so we barely heard from their ladies. Therefore, I tip my hat to the two remaining male pros for keeping the focus on their partners by remaining quiescent. Much ado about lifts, Carrie Ann – wonder what made you decide to enlighten us all with the definition, and then proceed to anxiously justify every lift you called out last night? *takes a sip of tea* Don’t worry, boo boo, that lift post is still coming 😉 I also think we continued to witness the narrative change last night – seems like we might be seeing Rashad & Simone (and their engaged partners, Emma & Sasha) take center stage now, with Normani, David, & Nancy all in the hunt for that third spot in the finals. Will TPTB let it ride? Time will tell.

Was very sad to see Mr. T go – was chatting with Deep Throat the other day, and they remarked that T was very much loved by everyone in the cast and crew: he was always making a point to say hello to everyone, and make sure they were doing well and having a good day. T was just genuinely GOOD PEOPLE, and I did enjoy seeing him on the show. But I do think he was beginning to get flustered with himself, and was probably ready to go – he had fun and tried hard, but I doubt he was going to improve much more if he had remained in the competition. Oh well – I look forward to a fun returning dance from him at the finale 🙂 Read more..

PureDWTS Season 24 Week 4 – Media, Interviews, Scores, Week 5 Hints, And More

What a night on Dancing With The Stars. The couples were all so good. I usually have an idea who might win the season by now, but, not this time? Unreal. 😯 If you’d like to relive the dances again, see Idolxfactor’s New Tumbler Page (these videos work Internationally) or the official Dancing With The Stars You Tube.

So, let’s review the scores again. I have to say…. I was so happy for Rashad and Emma receiving almost all 10’s last night….

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater: Scores of 10-9-10-10 from the judges for a total of 39.
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber: Scores of 9-9-9-9 from the judges for a total of 36.
Heather Morris and Alan: Scores of 8-9-9-9 from the judges for a total of 35.
Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev: Scores of 8-9-8-8 from the judges for a total of 33.
Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess: Scores of 8-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 32.
Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy: Scores of 8-7-8-9 from the judges for a total of 32.
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold: Scores of 7-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 31.
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd: Scores of 8-7-8-7 from the judges for a total of 30.
Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko: Scores of 8-7-7-8 from the judges for a total of 30.
Mr. T and Kym Herjavec: Scores of 7-7-7-7 from the judges for a total of 28. (Eliminated)

For media starters, see People for all of their recaps and interviews and keep checking the link through out the day. ET also has a recap and a few interviews.

Glamour doesn’t have any new information on next week, but, I loved this bit on Mr. T for what happened last week. So deserving. I’m going to miss him and Kym….

After a tear-soaked couple of hours, Tom Bergeron delivered the tough news that Mr. T would be leaving the competition. While Mr. T certainly wasn’t a strong dancer by any means, he had captured the hearts of millions and was probably the most beloved contestant I’ve seen on this show in my eight seasons of covering it. In fact, last week the crew gave him a personalized “The People’s Trophy” after all the other contestants had gone home. Mr. T posed with every single member of the crew and gave them more in return than they could have ever expected. I’ve never seen grown men so excited to be around any celebrity, and goodness knows this show has seen a lot of them.

More at Glamour and note that it’s Disney Week next (in case you missed this info on the show last night).

Fox411 interviewed Erika Jayne after she danced.

Jayne continued to flaunt her sexiness on Monday night’s fourth week of “DWTS” competition, earning a score of 30 out of 40 with partner Gleb Savchenko for a cha cha tribute to Madonna’s “Express Yourself.”

Hers was one of the lowest scores of the night and Judge Len Goodman sighed that Jayne’s dance was “same old, same old. You go down that sexy route.” (She wound up in the bottom two with Mr. T, but “The A-Team star was the one eliminated on Monday).

Jayne was undeterred, telling FOX411, “I performed my ass off and will continue to do so next week. Whatever happens, happens. Let the chips fall where they may.”

She said of her over-the-top sexy style, “Some people love it, some people don’t, and that’s their choice.”

Fox411 also talked with the other couples. Here’s a take with Rashad which is making me cry again. Read more..

DWTS Season 24, WEEK FOUR – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Most Memorable Year…usually the night of rumba and (poorly done) contemporary. Be sure to check the “Who’s Dancing” post as the running order has been updated…and it ain’t lookin’ good for Nick, dang it. Not sure what they have against him.

Oh and CAI said she wants me to come on DWTS and dance with her. LOL. I think she really wants Derek and got me by mistake. 😉

Okay, these intros are SOOO scripted it ain’t even funny. I think it was Normani and Nick that gave it away – neither are actors so there you go. 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. :-)

Good Morning America Previews ‘Most Memorable Year’ For Dancing With The Stars Season 24 (Videos)

Ginger Zee of Good Morning America was at camera blocking yesterday for Dancing With The Stars “Most Memorable Year” Week. She interviewed some of the couples. You can also see small peeks of their dances. Interesting too how “Sunday” seems to be their most stressful day (so understandable). More below. Thanks to @GMA and @Idolxfactor1 for recording and the clips.

DWTS Season 24, Week THREE – Dancing by the Numbers!

Thanks to Derek and Julianne Hough for their fantastic performance the other night…and for blowing up my Derek twitter search. That was a struggle to get through. 🙂 Amazing dance – I loved it.

As for the rest of the dancing, no one struck me as horrible, but at the same time, I was only really impressed by Nancy and David.  I still wonder why Nick is getting so badly hosed every week. What is the deal? I have a hard time believing they are trying to give Peta an early exit – she’s a competitor and there’s no way she wants an early exit, baby or not.  And fact is, Nick is NOT a dancer like many of the women are and he’s doing pretty darn good for someone who is a complete novice. I think he was better than Bonner by a good bit (and Peta is doing better for him than Sharna is for Bonner), yet he got the same scores from Len and Bruno as Mr. T and Charo did. In what freakin’ universe?? I love Mr. T  – but he is not the dancer that Nick is, not even close. Come on, judges. Why is the bar set so high for Nick? You’re treating him like he’s a pro not living up to expectations, instead of Joe Bachelor who’s never danced before. Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 24, Week FOUR – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Most Memorable Year…hopefully doesn’t translate to lots of rumbas or cliche contemporary. 🙂 Oh, wait…Nick has Rumba. :::rolls eyes:::

ETA: Vogue here. According to Lindsay Arnold’s new blog, her and David have a Viennese Waltz. This week will be very different and more personal. Lots more at the link.

ETA2: Gleb & Erika and Rashad & Emma’s dances have been added too. Thanks to everyone who let us know on them.

ETA4: Wow. Big mistake for Heather to be doing a Cha Cha….lookin’ like a one trick pony.  Shoulda done a waltz or something. Same goes for Erika and Cha Cha. People doing Cha Cha for memorable year don’t typically fare well.

ETA5: Dance order per George Pennachio – boy, they sure are trying to get rid of Nick.
