Fun rehearsal footage and they give an update on Mark Ballas as well. Thanks to @IdolXfactor1!!
Check it out! Too fun! I love the ending teaser by Derek…
Also, Shirley Ballas tweeted that it’s been a tough day, but, she can’t say why. Here’s is more. Could something be wrong with Mark like Vin 2 posted in comments? Let’s hope not and all eyes on tomorrow night. Thanks to Lori for the heads up!!
Well tough day today.Can’t say why Dwts policy.But all tune in tomorrow for a great show and lots of surprises.I’m going for a brandy. Uggg
“Mark was seriously injured during camera blocking,” the spokesperson says. “His shoulder popped out during a lift and he was taken by ambulance to the hospital where he was treated and released. It’s unclear whether or not he’ll be able to perform on Monday’s show.”
The injury occurred at the CBS studio where Dancing is taped. Ballas and Bure were in the middle of a complex maneuver that involved Ballas lifting the actress onto his shoulders when the injury occurred.
Fellow pro dancers Derek Hough and Cheryl Burke were at the studio and rushed to Ballas’s side on the ballroom floor.
They encouraged him to sit out the Monday finale so that the injury would not get worse, but Ballas is insisting he wants to perform. As a precaution, another DWTS pro will learn the routines and be ready to step in for Ballas should he ultimately need to sit out Monday’s show.
TV Guide gears us up for the Dancing With The Stars Season 18 finals by placing some odds and reviewing the couples strengths and weaknesses. They put Amy and Meryl neck and neck. Below is a take on Candace and Mark. Be sure to read the link for much more.
Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas
Strengths: Candace has made great strides since the start of the season, and is obviously willing to put in the effort required to be the best she can be (i.e. going to see a therapist to overcome her discomfort on the dance floor). Plus, her “I’m dancing for Jesus” approach means she’s got the Christian vote cornered.
Weaknesses: Candace and Mark have consistently found themselves the underdogs, having landed in jeopardy a few times this season. Of the remaining couples, they’re also the couple with the lowest average score. And let’s face it: despite the improvements Candace has made, she’s still no match for Olympic athletes Meryl and Amy.
Odds: 25 to 1
Well, I’m looking forward to a great night of dancing!! Especially curious about the freestyles.
Warning…I will be turning comment moderation on during the show again and the rules we’ve been using for the last couple weeks will apply once again.
The dances shown below are for night one. It appears that all couples that make it to Tuesday will be doing a 24-hour fusion dance, similar to last season, I would imagine.
Candace and Mark
Amy and Derek
James and Peta
Meryl and Maks
Season 13 – JR and Karina. I remember not being overly impressed by this one at the time, possibly because I saw so many moves that I had seen in Derek’s previous dances, not that they belonged to him or anything. But in retrospect, it’s quite good and it’s certainly the best of the season. Loved the ending bit the most. Read more..
Hi All! It’s Vogue back again to introduce another one of DonaMadrina’s fun Numerology Prediction posts. This time she analyzes the couples numbers for the Finals of Dancing With The Stars Season 18!! Dona also goes through last week’s numbers for what happened in the Semi-Finals. I’ve also included a little Astrology information in this post at the end for you to think about in mixing up things further. Ok, let’s get started, shall we?
Battle of the 9’s – Part II
WEEK 9 Reviewed
So Charlie went home! Was that surprising to me from the numbers? Yes…and no.
As I mentioned last week, numerology is as much an art as a science. Knowing how to “read” the numbers takes years of practice, especially when there is so much duality in the charts, i.e. too close to call.
Hindsight is golden, as they say. And, darn! I wished I had talked about “Week 9’s” numbers in the verbiage of Part I. Though I included the charts, had I elaborated on them, we’d have seen an important piece of information that might have hinted at Charlie possibly being in trouble. Charlie’s elimination is much more obvious now – but this is hindsight. Read more..
And to think…this is probably the last commercial we’ll see this season. *CRIES*
Okay, here’s part 2 – be sure to watch part 1 so you can get the full history.
Part 2 could be called the “Hough-Ballas-Johnson” Section. What I notice about Derek and Mark’s early Freestyles is that they craft something exciting but they still get a lot of actual dancing in there. I remember critics saying it was all lifts and no dancing….crack is wack, ya’ll. Looking forward to seeing both freestyles from them this Monday as they’ve both matured so much in both style and choreography.
Season 7 – Brooke and Derek. I loved this freestyle. It’s funny to watch now as Derek is a good bit smaller – you’ll also note that this is the beginning of his recurring back problems. What I loved about this freestyle is that, from Brooke, it was unexpected, I think. She was the best dancer this season and I remember thinking that there was no way she was beating Warren the showman – I think this dance might have done it for her. Read more..
On The Red Carpet has started to upload some rehearsal interviews. You can see Candace & Mark and Meryl and Maks below. Let’s hope they post more soon!! Be watching this link in case they do.
Adding: Just a reminder (again)… if you have updates, please write to our “Contact us” link. Don’t put them in comments. Thanks!
Tom Bergeron and Bruno Tonioli were on The Arsenio Hall Show last tonight. They talked of Dancing With The Stars and the finale. The beginning of the first below is hilarious! I won’t ruin it for you! Tom also talks on America’s Funniest Home Videos. Thanks to Jim for the heads up!!
