Dancing with the Stars Season 23, Week 3 – LIVE BLOG!!

Site rules in are effect – don’t hit refresh every 2 minutes, make sure you’re not posting one-liners, etc. Instead of doing two live blogs, I will probably use this same blog for both nights, since tonight is only an hour.

So, I rewatched the last week’s shows over the weekend and something struck me – it wasn’t just Laurie (and Terra) that got no real critique and was possibly over scored. V.Ice made an obvious, huge, glaring error and not only was it not called out, but he got the exact same score from Bruno as freakin’ Marilu (with the gorgeous foxtrot)!! Len gave him a *7* with the huge glaring error – the same score he gave to James, Calvin and Babyface…and point higher than he gave Maureen. Just thought I would point out that the monkey business is more widespread than Laurie.

Also, my *feel* from watching the show is that there are a few couples getting short shrift when it comes to camera time and BTS packages. We saw LOTS from some couples, and relatively little from others. Note that I didn’t have a stopwatch out, but it seemed like we didn’t see much from Jana, Marilu, Maureen, Amber or Babyface. I didn’t think we saw overly much from Laurie. But I think we saw a lot from some of the others. One of these days I might actually get a stopwatch. Eh…probably not. 🙂 …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 Season 23 Week 3 Pre-Show Photos And Blogs

Laurie Hernandez has written a new blog at USA Magazine. She writes of her week and gives a preview for tonight’s Tango.

I’m not nervous, but that’s because I’m not even thinking about it! I’m just trying to perfect our tango and I’m so excited for it. This is definitely a dance that’s something that I’m not used to, and it’s a step outside my comfort zone. It’s really hard to be all serious in the tango and not break into laughter. Tango is way more serious than a jive.

Sometimes Val will crack me up, and sometimes I’ll crack him up. It’s 50/50. Val tells me I need to work on making sure I don’t have spaghetti arms! My frame is always slightly off, so I need to make sure my arms don’t get too relaxed and flop around. But I’m working on it.

I’m really looking forward to this week because at the Olympics and in the previous dances that I did, they were very bubbly and they suited me really well. But now the tango’s super serious and I don’t think anyone’s seen that side of me before, so it’ll be exciting to see everyone’s reaction to it!

I’m also looking forward to what I’ll be wearing each week! Seeing what they do with my hair and my face, transforming every week, it’s pretty cool! This week I’ll be wearing something that’s black — and tango-appropriate. But tune in on Monday night to see what my finished look is!

More at USA Magazine.

Also, be watching for Jana and Terra to post their blogs at People. They should be posting them anytime. Here are some pre-show photos as well…

Almost showtime !! Excited to show you what we have been working on @dancingabc #dwts #teamholkerface @babyface -Allison

DWTS Season 23 Calvin Johnson On What Dancing Has Been Like Compared To Football And More

It’s fascinating when you think of how football and dancing can have so much in common. Calvin Johnson talked with the Detroit Free Press about it this week and how he and Lindsay have been rehearsing for his footwork. However for week 3 on Dancing With The Stars, Calvin will have to get in frame for their Viennese Waltz. Read on for more…

This Wednesday, the dance duo was planning to board a flight to Detroit around 6 a.m. – roughly 8 hours after Tuesday’s show – and head to the studio upon landing for rehearsals.

Johnson said that some of his football skills apply directly to ballroom dance. “I think that the footwork can correlate. I actually brought a footwork ladder into the dance studio and Lindsay actually was keeping up with me on some of the drills I was teaching her.”

But his amazing reach and range on the field, which ESPN’s “Sport Science” once calculated gave him the ability cover the equivalent of a two-car garage from a standing position? “That’s totally different,” he said. “Football is a more violent sport. This is really all about control. You want to be kind of graceful with it.”

Control is one area that the 6-foot-5 Johnson is working on improving, according to Arnold. “He has long legs, so we’re trying to make sure it looks like he’s controlling everything that he does. He definitely got so much better. There’s still room for improvement and that’s what we need to work on this week,” she said.

“We have a Viennese waltz (next week,) so we’re back in frame again. I think it’s really important for him to be smooth and to look very elegant and kind of show that different side.”

Is Johnson scared of any particular dance coming up, say, the Viennese waltz? “I mean, I have to be honest, because I don’t even know the names (of the dances) before I hear them,” he said with a laugh. “I’m just taking it as it comes, just learning new steps every day.”

This week, Johnson’s parents visited the show. “My mom, she’ll just say that anything I try to do, I do well,” he said. As for his father, “He was tickled. … He would never have expected me to be dancing, period. He’s laughing at me having a good time and probably learning some dance moves.”

Johnson sees his competition not as past NFL players like Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward and Donald Driver, each of whom won the show’s coveted mirror ball trophy.

“There’s a lot of past NFL stars that have done well on the show. but I’m kind of in the now,” he said. “I have some great competition, especially in (Olympic gold medalist) Laurie (Hernandez) and Val (Chmerkovskiy). That’s some tough competition. She already has the moves of a dancer.”

Added Megatron, “I’m the only one in my way right now. If I can just do what Lindsay’s telling me to do, be sharp and make it look good, we can make it all the way.”
