PureDWTS Season 22 Week 6 Media, Scores, And Interviews After Dance Night

What a night again on Dancing With The Stars! I was impressed in different ways with them all. More on this later in comments in Courtney’s new Power Rankings post. For now, I have to say I was sad to see Doug Flutie eliminated. Though kudos to him and Karina Smirnoff. I loved how they did so with a bang and with a “Bollywood” dance to boot with such beautiful moves mixed in. And Doug….I’ll never forget his piercing gorgeous eyes for the way he took on the Paso Doble and other dances. He also proved age is only a number and that the football fighting spirit never ends. Doug, thank you for dancing and with all of your heart and soul.

So, before we get to the interviews and recaps, let’s review the scores again….

Wanya Morris & Lindsay Arnold (Jazz) 10-9-10 for a Total of 29
Paige VanZant & Mark Ballas (Jazz) 9-10-9 for a Total of 28
Antonio Brown & Sharna Burgess (Jive) 9-9-9 for a Total of 27
Jodie Sweetin & Keo Motsepe (Contemporary) 9-8-8 for a Total of 25
Nyle DiMarco & Peta Murgatroyd (Quickstep) 8-8-9 for a Total of 25
Kim Fields & Sasha Farber (Jive) 8-8-8 for a Total of 24
Von Miller & Witney Carson (Jazz) 8-8-8 for a Total of 24
Ginger Zee & Valentin Chmerkovskiy (Jazz) 8-8-8 for a Total of 24
Doug Flutie & Karina Smirnoff (Bollywood) 7-7-7 for a Total of 21 (eliminated)

And now onto some media. First, go to Glamour and ABC7 for their recaps and photos. Glamour is also suppose to post some interviews later. For some fun Team Boomin’ coverage from Pittburgh, see WTAE here.

You can also read some new interviews at People. I loved what Wanya told People about NSync…

With a performance like this, Dancing with the Stars won’t be saying “Bye Bye Bye” to Wanya Morris any time soon.

The Boyz II Men star performed the NSYNC hit – in front of his close friend Joey Fatone and Fatone’s bandmate Lance Bass. After a spot-on performance, Fatone burst into (mock) tears backstage, but got serious as he said he and his bandmates look up to Boyz II Men star.

“We’ve been friends a long time and I know how much they looked up to us before they started their own careers,” Morris told PEOPLE after Monday’s show. “So it’s really great to get to now pay homage to their great success as a band. It’s a full-circle moment.”

Be sure to see E Online’s interviews after the show. Note how Wanya said they went straight to team rehearsals after the show last night. Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, Week 6 – Live Blog!! (Spoilers)

Tonight we get to watch some couples mutilate “famous dances” and other couples probably do pretty well. The real question is: did Len get the memo on “content”? Last time we did this fiasco challenge, he wasn’t around. Hmmmm…we’ll see. Somehow, I suspect that all those with ballroom dances will end up below those without on the leaderboard.

After all the hype about the opening number, I found it underwhelming. Here’s my problem with it: they do these “famous” dances yet they don’t use the original music or original costumes. I don’t think I got half of them except “Risky Business” and “Big”. I didn’t care for it last season either – for the same reason. And, it’s funny, at the beginning I was like “shocking – they are featuring Mark, it’s about damn time!!”  I clearly spoke to soon because Val’s bare ass was all over the latter half of that dance. Not even remotely attractive, to me – but then I’m all about personality. Good ones.

Kim – I just love her attitude and HER personality. Good to see her getting the good edit – I suspect she doesn’t give them anything bad to work with. Keo…put on your big boy pants. I get you’re upset, I would be too – but it wasn’t Kim or Jodie’s fault. 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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff And Doug Flutie Pushing Themselves More Than Ever (Blog, Rehearsal Interview)

Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff and Doug Flutie are pushing themselves out of their comfort zones this week and more than ever. Karina writes all about it at People. You can also watch a rehearsal video below.

I even had to call my mom at one point and tell her, “I’m breathing but I just can’t seem to feel like I’m getting air.” And she told me, “You’re having an anxiety attack.”

It freaked me out a bit, but that just shows you how much this competition means to me and how much I want Dougie to succeed.

Making this week more difficult is the fact that I am also having to learn a style of dance as I’m helping teach Doug.

It took a minute, but now I’ve fallen in love with the style. It’s so strong and demanding and sexy. The hardest part is making sure all the moves and hand gestures are super clean.

The hand gestures are the most important because if we are even a little bit off with them, we could make a gesture that is really offensive.

My stress level finally went down a bit after Friday when we were able to make it through the entire routine for the first time.

Now, I’m super excited to show the judges and the audience just how great Doug has gotten at the routine. It’s going to be a lot of fun.

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, Week 5 – Dancing by the Numbers

Okay, once again Von and Antonio have exactly the same score. Am I supposed to believe this is coincidence?? And in WHAT universe is Paige a point behind Ginger?  One where Black Hole Asshattery Judging (tm Susan1) rules the day– that universe.

Oy veh. El stupidos know not what they do…or they do and they don’t care because they WANT a “shocking” elimination. They improved Jodie’s and Kim’s position – but not by enough for it to possibly matter!! And in the process they put a few more people at risk.  When just looking at the leaderboard, it looks fairly innocuous.

But then you start looking at the matchups and you can see quickly where a big problem might arise. Low man on the totem pole was Doug, who has survived all the way to week 6, so clearly he has something going for him. He’s a beloved sports figure. The only problem I see is that he doesn’t seem to be having fun. People might not vote for you if you don’t seem like you really want to be there. But if they ARE voting for Doug, we could be in for a surprise come Monday night. Why? Check it: Read more..
