Afterbuzz TV With Gleb Savchenko And Elena Samodanova Review Dancing With The Stars Season 20 Week 8
This week Elena Samodanova and Gleb Savchenko joined the Afterbuzz TV gang to review Dancing With The Stars Season 20 Week 8! It was so cool to get a perspective from Gleb and Elena being they have danced and/or judged in other countries (here, Australia, India, recently Russia…and soon the UK). I found them fascinating with their knowledge and insights. They were refreshing and articulate with their reviews and thoughts of each couple. I especially loved how Gleb and Elena praised Sharna and Derek for their choreography. Gleb even called Derek “extraordinary”.
-Note that Gleb and Elena are only in Los Angeles for two weeks. Next week, Gleb plans to take his DWTS Russia partner Adelina Sotnikova to Dancing With The Stars on Monday and Tuesday. So, look for them in the audience.
-Elena also talked about judging DWTS Russia and what it was like to judge Gleb and Adelina (wouldn’t she make a cool judge here? I love her!).
– Gleb also talked of doing Strictly Come Dancing this Fall in the UK and then they are returning to back to Los Angeles. Gleb said he hopes to dance in Dancing With The Stars Season 22 here.
-Also note that Kristyn said Kym Johnson won’t be dancing on our version of Dancing With The Stars next season. She is going back to Australia to judge.
Lots more below. Excellent show with a lot of cool information. Let us know what you think as always….
ETA: Part of the video below has been edited. Not sure why, but, during the live stream when they were talking about the Derek, Nastia, and Sasha’s trio, Gleb again mentioned Derek’s musicality in his choreography and how he can create around the song(fast and slow) and that you don’t see that level of choreography very often because you have to be “extraordinary”. So, keep that in mind while you listen.
ETA2: You can listen to an audio version of the entire show (unedited) at this link. The part that was missing in the video below can be heard at the 42:14 mark. Thanks to Angie for letting us know.
ETA3: Kristyn tweeted there were “transmission issues” and that’s why they had to edit the video. You can also listen to the Podcast at iTunes.

DWTSRussia Semi-Finals With Gleb Savchenko, Adelina Sotnikova, Elena Samodanova – Special Preview, Photos, Video
Are you ready for the Dancing With The Stars Russia Semi-finals? For starters, Anastassija (@NastineLi at twitter) was so gracious and wrote us a fun preview for what the show is about this week so we’d understand it better. It reads as follows….
Anastassija: The 10th show of DWTS RUSSIA will be dedicated to the most popular and successful singer of Soviet Union and Russia of all times, Alla Pugachjova. She had her birthday on April, 15 (she turned 66) so they decided to make such a present to her. Each pair takes their favourite song by A.Pugachjova and performs a dance. She has a very rich repertoir, so it’s very difficult to guess the choices.
To make it a bit more clear, she is somewhat like Madonna or Michael Jackson for Russians. Actually when she was young, she was really a mega-star and an absolute idol for several generations of soviet people. Now she almost doesn’t perform, but she is extremely respected and a very influential person in the world of show business in Russia. She is a welcome guest on many shows, she used to be a judge on a very famous russian-produced international talent festival New Wave, she also produced her own talent show(smth like Star Academy) “Factor A”. So she still stays very active ;)) and i won’t be surprised if tomorrow she is one of the judges ;))
An interesting fact – she is wife of the host of the show, Maxim Galkin. They have a big age difference, but they are happily married and have little twins. Though, A.Pugachjova has a grown up daughter, who is also a popular singer in Russia, and two grandsons, one of whom also tries to be a professional musician. You can read really much about her here. And here you can listen to a collection of her really greatest hits and most popular songs of all her career ;))
Back to Vogue: So, this week Gleb Savchenko is dancing in a men’s group dance. Anastassija tells us they will be dancing to a song called “Kings Can Do Anything”.
Anastassija translated the lyrics for us below and what they mean to set up this dance before we see it….
1.Once upon a time there lived a king
He rules his country and his people as he only could
And his name was Louis the Second.
But the song is not about him but about love.
At those times there lived a beauty
She … the shepherd geese at the walls of the palace,
But for Louis she was the prettiest of all
And he decided to marry her
Kings can do anything, kings can do anything,
They even decide the destiny of the whole world,
But no matter what you say
No king can marry for love
2.”I will marry, I will marry, I will marry”, said Louis.
And all his neighbours kings immediately arrived to him,
And there was a huge scandal, a really huge scandal.
But the song is not about that but about love.
And finally he married another woman.
She had only kings in her pedigree.
But if you saw the portrait of that princess,
You would never envy Louis
Also, below is a video of the Guys (including Gleb) in rehearsals for the Group dance… Read more..
