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 .

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. :-)

Carrie Ann Inaba Talks “Famous Dance Night” in her DWTS Blog

Carrie Ann talks about why she handed out the scores she did – does she read this site? 🙂  I don’t agree with a lot of her rationale….or, I should say, I agree with a lot of her ratonale, just not the score that came from her rationale, if that makes sense.  I’ve put an excerpt from Parade, below, but be sure to click the link to read the whole thing.

Someone else who struggles with the same problem of not always being aware of her complete movements is Alexa Penavega. Her routine last night was to “I’m a Slave for You” by Brittney Spears, and she and Mark Ballas just didn’t quite deliver the quality of movement needed to pull off that number. It’s a hard pill to swallow after receiving the first perfect score of the season last week, and then being in jeopardy last night. My heart goes out to her. But she really does have the ability to be incredible. I think what is lacking is confidence. To know you own the space on the dance floor is a really big part of winning this competition. When you have confidence, your body dances differently. It’s like when someone walks into a room with confidence and they seem larger than life. When someone just as beautiful walks into the same room without confidence, they don’t seem to fill the room. How you feel about yourself while doing the routine is a big factor. I know these dances can be challenging and some styles are better suited to various individuals. But after you’ve rehearsed it, you have to get out there and know that no one else will ever do that routine again. It’s uniquely your performance so do it with all your confidence, and you will for sure excite us all.

When I think of strong and steady, I think of Alek Skarlatos. He is really a strong and steady performer. I don’t sense a lot of doubt in himself when he dances. His only weakness is that he hasn’t had a lot of experience performing. This is what makes everyone love him so much. Paula Deen said last night that she was a fish out of water. But I think actually it is Alek that is the fish out of water. With no performance background, he really is impressive. But this is what he needs to work on to be a contender. And don’t get me wrong. I do think he has the potential. I suggested he work with Artem Chigvintsev to learn a bit more of the masculine performance skills and a bit more flair. Lindsay has already done such an incredible job with his technique that he is solid and steady and a good partner! But his recreation of Elvis’s performance last night made it evident that as we head down the final stretch, he is going to need to up his game to stay in the ballroom.

Pure Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Week 6 Media And Interviews – Videos

What a great night on Dancing With The Stars. I thought the producers really stepped it up last night. I was so happy to see an opening number. My three favorite dances were Derek & Bindi, Nick & Sharna, and Tamar & Val!! I was sad to see Paula go, but, what a great run she had. I am going to miss her heart and entertaining, fun, and happy spirit. I don’t ever think I’ll forget her laugh either. Huge kudos to Louis too. I enjoyed him and this partnership so much, I’d love to see him return as a pro next season.

So, below are the scores again….

Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough 10-10-10-10 40 total
Tamar Braxton & Valentin Chmerkovskiy 10-10-10-10 40 total
Andy Grammer & Allison Holker 10-10-10-10 40 total
Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess 9-10-10-10 39 total
Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson 10-9-9-10 38 total
Hayes Grier & Emma Slater 8-8-8-8 32 total
Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas – 8-7-7-8 30 total
Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold 8-8-7-7 30 total
Paula Deen & Louis van Amstel 6-6-6-6 24 total- Eliminated

For some new interviews (though not many since the couples went to team rehearsals right after the show. The press only got 10 minutes to interview), first, be sure to catch a few interviews at E Online including one with Olivia Newton John and her daughter. People also chatted with a few of the couples. Glamour recaps the dances and the night. Be watching this link as they may post more later from behind the scenes including photos. Also, for lots more with Bindi and Derek, see Pure Derek Hough.

Dancing with the Stars Season 21, Week 6 – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Week 6 already!! Wow…time flies.

Well, I think it’s been a good season so far – light on the manipulation and shenanigans (until last week). I expect that may all change tonight. Either way, it will be interesting to see how it plays out.  Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

T-minus 15 minutes…

LOL – Robert (Bindi’s bro) is on All Access – so cute.

So, great opening number…off the top of my head I saw Singing in the Rain (Derek), Flash Dance (Karina), ONE….what else….

CAI just said they would be looking for the style they were assigned. I smell BS already.

Thought Hayes and Emma did really well – a tiny bit hosed by the judges, I think I would have gone a bit higher. Read more..
