Way cool! Bring on this night!
Below is the new Afterbuzz TV show. This week Kristyn Burtt (I want her jacket! 😀 ), Anna Trebunskaya, Suri Serano, Darvina Plante, and Keo Motsepe discuss Dancing With The Stars Week 4! Let us know if you agree or disagree in comments as always!
What is your Most Memorable year? If you would like to, please share. In my 63 years of life, there are so many memorable years. It is hard to pick just one, isn’t it? I could choose my wedding year, 1975, when I married Kenneth Troutman. I could choose 2001, the year he died from cancer. There are many years in between. There are many years in my earlier lfe. I will choose 1990 (December 27) when we found out Ken had prostate cancer. That was the beginning of time until his death that had a profound affect on us. And changed life as we knew it into dealing with our cancer journey. The dance that resonated the most with me was Robert and Kym’s Waltz dedicated to his Mother who lost her life from cancer. I would give something to be able to have a pro teach me a Waltz dedicated to Ken. The music I would choose is Swan Lake. Ken loved classical music especially Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and the 1812 Overture, which was his favorite piece of music. He played both over and over. He introduced me to classical music and I love it, too.
You know how you find an incredible book you can’t put down? You have to keep reading well into the wee hours of the morning. I didn’t want to put Dancing With the Stars down for The Most Memorable Year night. I wanted it to continue for hours! This night of dancing is special! The emotions flow out of every space of the ballroom! The stars bear their hearts and souls through dance. The stars depicted:
The Chapters of Life
The Ballroom was dripping with floods of emotion
Eyes were moist with tears dripping down our faces
Each chapter was told through movement of dance
Each step, each moment had a profound affect on us
We were taken into a book of life as the pages turned
Each journey a valiant display, bearing of hearts, souls Read more..

People interview Dancing With The Stars judge Len Goodman last night after the show. He talks of why he judges the way he does and why he likes tradition. More below and at the link.
“The show is becoming performance-driven. It’s all about the performance,” Goodman told PEOPLE exclusively after the show. “For me, that’s not what ballroom dancing is about. The waltz, next to the Viennese waltz, is the oldest dance of all. There is a tradition. When you think of the waltz, you think of elegance, sophistication, fluidity of movement. Sometimes I look at a dance and I have to check what dance it is, because it doesn’t look like what I think it should be.”
“It makes me chuckle,” he told PEOPLE. “If I was sitting in the audience and someone else was me, I would be booing along with them. It’s all a part of the fun.”
“Two things I try to be … I try to be myself and I try to be honest,” he added. “The bottom line is it’s got to be entertaining. I also try to enlighten the viewers as to what I want to see, and I try to educate the couples on where I want to see improvement. I got it right tonight, whether people booed or not.”
What a night! I appreciated and loved every couple’s dances in different ways!! So, let’s start off with the scoreboard….

Afterbuzz TV (Give a shout to @JCRubioTV! Fantastic interviews again):
This is hilarious. Be sure to check it out when you can….
Theme of the week: Most Memorable Year….or some such thing. I expect to need tissues at least once. This can be either good….or very bad. 😀
Holy crap!! That was quite a start to the show!! And of course, Len picks it apart. No character of the dance? Spare me the narrative. I guess he got the producers notes.
LOL…I swear that Bruno ALWAYS does what he can to counteract Len. Happens all the time.
Man, why did they go back to this way of doing the elimination?? Sucks.
Robert and Kym are safe, Riker and Michael are in jeopardy. Bites. Poor Peta looks like she might puke. Read more..
