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!

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Headliner Talent Perform on Dancing with the Stars

I don’t want to brag, but I do want to point out how right my predictions were about the music that would be performed on tonight’s Dancing with the Stars. Actually I really surprised myself when my predictions were dead on. The only one I missed was that Aretha Franklin would do 2 songs. Honestly, I was just amazed with the incredible talent DWTS is able to bring to the show. Here’s the full list of songs sung:

Aretha Franklin sang “Chain of Fools” Aretha Franklin - The Best of Aretha Franklin - Chain of Fools while Karina Smirnoff, Anna Trebunskaya, Louis van Amstel & Dmitry Chaplin danced.

Leona Lewis sang “Bleeding Love” Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love - Single - Bleeding Love while Maksim Chmerkovskiy & Karina Smirnoff danced.

Julianne Hough sang “My Hallelujah Song” Julianne Hough - Julianne Hough - My Hallelujah Song while Derek Hough, Mark Ballas & Lacey Schwimmer danced.

John Legend sang “Green Light” John Legend - Evolver - Green Light while John Legend’s dancers performed.

Aretha Franklin sang “Respect” Aretha Franklin - The Best of Aretha Franklin - Respect while Kristi Yamaguchi & Mark Ballas danced.

Predictions for Tomorrow’s Talented Performances

We already know for sure that Julianne Hough will be singing her new single “My Hallelujah Song” Julianne Hough - Julianne Hough - My Hallelujah Song while brother Derek Hough & old partner Mark Ballas dance. (Check out Julianne Hough’s music video for My Hallelujah Song on iTunes My Hallelujah Song)

Being a Las Vegas boy, I’m willing to bet that Leona Lewis will be performing her song Bleeding Love Leona Lewis - Spirit (Deluxe Version) - Bleeding Love. (Check out her music video also Leona Lewis - Spirit (Deluxe Version) - Bleeding Love) That song has been one of the most popular songs ever on So You Think You Can Dance and I think that it will do really really well on Dancing with the Stars too. I’m looking forward to seeing her perform it live.

Anyone want to make a guess on what Aretha Franklin will sing when Kristi Yamaguchi & Mark Ballas return to the dance floor? I’d love to hear her sing RespectAretha Franklin - The Best of Aretha Franklin - Respect. What about John Legend? Maybe Green LightJohn Legend - Evolver - Green Light?

I don’t think it’s any surprise that Disney (also owns ABC) darling Miley Cyrus will be singing “Fly on the Wall” Miley Cyrus - Breakout - Fly On the Wall on the finale show. A very nice pick. Although, I must admit that it’s really interesting that there have been so many younger talents singing on the show. I can’t imagine Dancing with the Stars is trying for the younger demographic. Maybe they just assume they already have the older demographic locked in.
