Dancing with the Stars Season 22, Week 8 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Well, Week 8 and more weirdness to take us into the semi-finals. So, the couples are split into teams of two and each team gets a judge. :::sigh::: Judges choose the dance and the song. One would think they would pick appropriately, but I’m not going to hold my breath. I believe that’s all we know right now…except for the pairs at the bottom of the page. These came from a variety of interviews and other sources.

ETA: Vogue here. Today on Kelly & Michael, Carrie Ann said she has Antonio/Sharna and Paige/Mark for her team. She is creating something “athletic” for them. More in this post.

ETA2: Thanks to Kennedy for the heads up to look at the DancingABC Instagram. If it’s not Panic at the Disco, then that account is trolling. 🙂

ETA3: The DWTS instagram strikes again. Any guess on what dance style Jodie will be doing to that song?

ETA4: All the songs and dances thanks to the ABC press release (via DWTSGossip).

ETA5: Song and Dance up date for Carrie Ann’s Team below via her instagram. And I sure hope they aren’t copying Derek Hough’s new dance art project with this. ~Vogue

ETA6: Thanks to everyone who has been telling me that Ginger and Wanya have samba – I’ve been out having a life and not surprisingly it involved booze. 🙂 ~Heidi

ETA7: A few updates below thanks to Peta’s twitter and Instagram! Thanks to everyone who sent the heads up. ~Vogue

ETA8: And the rest of the dance order thanks to George Pennachio. ~Heidi

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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, Week 7 – Live Blog!! (Spoilers)

In case you missed it, George P tweeted the dance order and I have updated the Who’s Dancing post. Based on that, I think perhaps my guess that the entire Men’s team will be called safe might be wrong. I suppose they could still do it, but I’m less certain. 🙂

Here’s to hoping for some good dancing!!

Man, the opening pro numbers just don’t have the pizzaz that they used to have. See seasons 5 or 6 for good examples.

Complaining about your scores is nearly a sure fire way to get Len’s knickers in a twist. 🙂 You can tell Keo is friends with Val and Maks by the opening of that dance. Read more..

Carrie Anne Inaba Writes On DWTS Week 6, Leona Lewis In Audience Three Times This Season

Carrie Ann Inaba has written about Dancing With The Stars Week 6 at Access Hollywood. Wanya and Lindsay was her favorite this week. She gives advise to all the couples. She also talks on who was in the audience and more. Interesting for what she said on Leona Lewis. We better put her on our Rumor/Watch list.

ETA: According to a few fans in comments (thanks, Guys), Leona is dating Dennis Jauch (one of my new favorite dancers on the troupe). So, that may be why she’s been seen in the audience so much.

On a side note, I’ve seen Leona Lewis in the ballroom three times this season. I wonder if she is considering being a contestant on the show. Last night the audience was filled with fun folks. Michael Sam was in the house, Marissa Jaret Winokur an Lance Bass and Joey Fatone from *NSYNC all came for famous dances night. Famous Dance Night at DWTS can be a challenge because when you reenact an iconic dance, you are stepping into some very large shoes to fill. And last night’s dances were not easy dances to reenact. I would say the most difficult ones were, Michael Jackson’s “Bad,” choreographed by Jeffrey Daniels, Janet Jackson’s “Nasty,” choreographed by Paula Abdul, and Pink’s “Try,” choreographed by RJ Durell and Nick Florez. Because these dances were music videos, they were created to specifically highlight the singer’s unique style. They weren’t only about great dancing. The chore of the DWTS choreographer was to find a way to recreate these dances with their nonprofessional dancer and highlight what is great about them without losing what was great about the original. Once again, just a quick shout out to all the dancers who choreograph these routines every week.

Wanya and Lindsay were my favorite this week. That number was way too cool for school and has anyone noticed how thin Wanya is getting? He’s lost so much weight and he’s getting even better as he thins out. The choreography was incredible and really cool and innovative. They reminded us of the original performance with the intro but Lindsay and Wanya took it to a new level and owned that dance. They owned the night as far as I’m concerned. And Bruno agreed. Antonio came back with a bang… it was fun to see those feet in action. His Jive was very well suited for his athleticism. When he did those shuffles the beginning, his feel barely touched the ground. And that performance closed the night with a bang. I’m proud of him for what he taught us all about teamwork with his discussion with Sharna, but anyone who knows Sharna knows she’s 100% behind him and with him for the long haul. She’s a dedicated partner and he has nothing to worry about. But I will say that I (and the whole ballroom) were deeply moved by his teamwork speech. Go Steeler Nation.

Can’t wait for next week! Double Elimination. These couples better work hard this week and give us their best, because this season the competition is fierce. There is no consistent front-runner. It’s going to be a close race all the way to the end!

More at Access Hollywood including some cool behind the scenes photos.
