Strictly Come Dancing Week 8 With Gleb Savchenko, Tristan MacManus, & More: Videos, Review Show

Hi all, Heidi here. Vogue asked me to send you all her love as she can’t be here today. Please send her strength and healing vibes, as today is going to be a difficult day for her.  (((Vogue)))

She also asked me to put up this post for all the Strictly fans. I’ve not been watching the show this season, so I’m not sure what’s going on, but I did see in the last post who’s dancing what, thanks to Mr. A in the comments. I do have an objection to the Gleb hashtags which implies that he created that move he did last week – you know, the one he took from Derek and Shawn’s Mambo in 2012. Lucky for him he’s so good looking. 😉

Anyway, Gleb and Anita are apparently doing a Quickstep to ‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ by The Pretenders.  I looked for a video but couldn’t seem to find one of Gleb doing quickstep.

Tristan Macmanus and Jamelia will be performing the Samba to ‘A Little Respect’ by Erasure.  If you want to see what everyone else is dancing, Mr A listed them all in the comments of the previous SCD post.

For more dance information on the other couples, see the official Strictly Come Dancing site. As always, let us know on all of your thoughts in comments. Who did you like the best and who will be in the dance off and go home? Feel free to rank them if you like too. Lastly and more importantly, BE SURE TO VOTE right after the show! Don’t forget Blackpool Week is confirmed for Week 9, so, we want to make sure our favorite couples get there. THANKS EVERYONE!! You’ve made this season of both versions of Dancing With The Stars a blast!

Here are the times and some Live Streams (works the best with a PC). (Check the Times for me – I simply copied from last week and it seems like the UK is a bit more fluid than the US.)

ETA: Thanks to Andrea, here are the dances from Gleb and Tristan (and their partners). Len didn’t say a word about the breaking hold in the middle of the quickstep – he’s always such a different judge on the UK version.

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. :-)

Strictly Come Dancing Week 7 With Gleb Savchenko, Tristan MacManus, & More: Teasers, Flashbacks, Videos, Review Show

It’s Strictly Come Dancing time! It’s hard to believe we are in Week 7. Time flies when you are having fun. This week Gleb Savchenko and Anita Rani are dancing a Jive to ‘The Boy Does Nothing’ by former Strictly winner Alesha Dixon and they are dancing 7th!! Gleb hashtags #GlebSpecial” and “FlyingTeaBag”. I wonder what we’re in store for? The last time he did a Jive on DWTSRussia (with Adelina Sotnikova), he jumped off of a telephone booth. Remember this? #WayHot and #SoCool

Tristan Macmanus and Jamelia are dancing a Viennese Waltz to ‘Trouble’ by Ray LaMontagne. The last time Tristan did a Viennese Waltz was with Rachel Stevens on a Strictly Christmas Special last year. They were Tinkerbell and Peter Pan to ‘Please Come Home for Christmas’ by the Eagles. Is this not magical?

A Few Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Judge Updates, New DWTS Promo Video

As you know from yesterday’s report, Len Goodman will not be a judge for Dancing With The Stars Season 21. However, he could be involved in some capacity. There are also plans to have guest judges.

Also, Lizze Grubman (Tony Dovolani’s publicist), confirmed at twitter last night that Tony Dovolani will not be a judge as we suspected.

And the question on all of our minds, will there be a new fourth judge? Nothing has been confirmed yet, but, Yahoo News has mentioned “a permanent fourth judge will not be appointed”. Thanks to Meghan for this heads up.

The guest judges filling Goodman’s shoes have yet to be named, but a permanent fourth judge will not be appointed.

Again, we stress, nothing is official or confirmed yet!! Judging very much seems to still be in the working stages?

Oh, and isn’t this new ad for Dancing With The Stars Season 21 fun? Thanks to Trisha Cannon for recording.

PureDWTS Season 21 POLL: Who Do You Think the New Judge Will Be?

DWTSGossip dropped this interesting tidbit yesterday:

newjudge

Which seems to point to Len finally bowing out as head judge, and some new blood being brought in to round out the panel.  All signs seem to point to a male judge (not sure I could handle a panel of Carrie Ann “I Score with My Vagina, Not My Brain” Inaba, Bruno the Flamboyant, and Julianne, who can be a bit hit-or-miss), and a lot of folks seem to think it’s Tony – likely because he expressed interest in the position in an interview recently. Others are throwing out Louis & Maks’ names, and yet others are thinking it’s someone different altogether – I fall in the latter, as my gut is telling me that DWTS might borrow from another country’s version of the show and tap Jean Marc Genereaux from Danse avec les Stars in France (and DWTSGossip did mention that he/she had heard that DWTS France “would be involved in some way”).  I think there’s also a possibility that DWTS may try to “borrow” one of the ballroom choreographers from SYTYCD (Jean Marc or Tony Meredith fit the bill), or we might see Corky’s name thrown back in the mix. I do think the new judge will likely be someone who specializes in ballroom, though, as Len’s shoes are big ones to fill in terms of ballroom experience.

So assuming all of this is true – who do you guys think the new judge might be, and why? Tell us in the poll and the comments!
