PureDWTS Season 19 Week 8 Poem: “The Dynamic, Duo-Licious Party”

Our resident poet always knows how to sum up the week! Here is Lois again with another goodie….

THE DYNAMIC, DUO-LICIOUS DANCE PARTY

Invitations were sent, there was a party feel in the ballroom air
Duos of every type filled the dance card, with fun and with flair

THE DYNAMIC, DUO-LICIOUS DANCE PARTY began in style
Each duo depicting their characters with gusto and with a smile

Duos from Classic TV, from the Bible, from country, from a play
Brought delightful fun to the dance floor in their own unique way

A Dance-Off with Duos in the Dance Party, ended the rousing night
Each Duo blended together with distinction and with grand delight

BATMAN AND ROBIN
ALFONSO AND WITNEY
CHA CHA CHA TO TRUST

Zip-line entrance, brilliant depiction
Super team, smart, smooth, tight, instincts

LUCY AND RICKY RICARDO
BETHANY AND DEREK
SALSA TO BABALU

Cooking with Classic TV lines, animated fun
A Babalu Bonanza, brand-spanking brilliant

ROMEO AND JULIET
VAL AND JANEL
CONTEMPORARY TO EVERYBODY’S FREE TO FEEL GOOD

Finest choreography from Val, pure emotion, breathtaking
Gorgeous and glorious in every way, what dance is about

BONNIE AND CLYDE
LEA AND ARTEM
JAZZ TO SOMETHING BAD

Staccato, tango feel, stunning set-cup
With confidence, classy, sassy, crazy, wild

JANE AND TARZAN
MICHAEL AND EMMA
FOXTROT TO YOU’LL BE IN MY HEART

Swinging entrance on a vine, Lord of the Jungle
Best dance, nice lines, runs own race with pride

ADAM AND EVE
SADIE AND MARK
CONTEMPORARY TO UNINVITED – SUNG BY BC JEAN

Apple-licious, tempting, tantalizing, with maturity
Poignant, powerful, passionate, intricate choreography

JOHNNY AND JUNE CARTER CASH
TOMMY AND PETA
PASO DOBLE TO RING OF FIRE

Burning with fire and love, magic mojo, charming
Connection with Peta, commitment to the dance

The Duos took the floor, Val, Janel had Immunity from elimination
The Duos shook it up, danced with great and fierce determination

WITNEY AND ALFONSO AND LEA AND ARTEM
JIVE TO RIP IT UP – WITNEY AND ALFONSO THE WINNERS

BETHANY AND DEREK AND MARK AND SADIE
CHA CHA CHA TO REALLY DON’T CARE – BETHANY AND DEREK THE WINNERS

MICHAEL AND EMMA AND TOMMY AND PETA
RUMBA TO I’M NOT THE ON!Y ONE – TOMMY AND PETA THE WINNERS

THE DYNAMIC DUO-LICIOUS DANCE PARTY ruled Week Eight
Wasn’t it a duo-licious, fun party, wasn’t it grand and G-R-E-A-T!

Written By Lois A Troutman, November 4, 2014

THE NIGHT ENDED, MICHAEL AND EMMA TOOK THEIR FINAL CURTAIN!
WE WILL RETURN NEXT WEEK FOR #NINE, I AM SURE AND I AM CERTAIN!

DWTS Season 19 Week 8!! Let’s discuss tonight’s show! (Spoilers)

Is it really week 8?? Dang, where has the season gone…

Once again, comment to your hearts contents, as long as you remember the show night rules.

  1. Our server gets totally hosed when people sit at their computer and click “refresh” constantly. Post a comment, then walk away for five minutes so that others have a chance…and so that Courtney and I can actually post on the site. :-)
  2. THIS SITE IS NOT TWITTER. Do not post like you are on twitter. You get one warning and then I put you in time out. :-) We need context and content. Believe it or not there are a lot of people who don’t watch the east coast feed of the show, so they don’t know what the hell you’re talking about when you post a comment that says, “Boy, that sucked.”  If you want to say “____ and ____’s dance was not good at all, crappy choreo” that’s fine. That would be context. It is good. :-D  Remember, if you post five one liners in five minutes, you’ve broken rule number 1. ;-)

 

Another reason to hate immunity – no opening number. BOOOOO!!

All Access says Beth and Derek are dancing last.

Am I the only one that found Lea to be a bit weak?? I sure do wish…well, never mind. Agree with Len – she’s way too safe.

Interesting hints on All Access – sounds like Alfonso could go either way. Disaster or a 40.

Ahhh….poor Emma and Mike. Emma’s got to be great at back leading. And she looks amazing tonight.

Good dance by Val and Janel – but then it should be, shouldn’t it? I saw a couple little bobbles, but she’ll get a perfect score anyway.

Don’t get too excited – If Beth or Alfonso get a perfect score (and according to Lacey either one could), they beat out Janel by cumulative score. Don’t think anyone else has a shot.

Tommy? Sorry, kinda missed that one, but the judges seem to love him.

Mark and Sadie – poor Mark. Can’t say I blame him. But he did say that Derek was the one who was in touch with the meaning of life and how to live it – and I hope he can learn from him just a little. He shouldn’t give the judges the satisfaction of knowing their bullshit got to him.

As for tonight’s dance – loved it! Way, WAY better than Janel’s contemporary, although she’ll get hosed on the scores. CAI already nitpicking – where was she when Janel was dancing??

Not that it matters, but Sadie should have gotten a perfect score if Janel earned one. But I think Janel beats Sadie in cumulative points anyway.

Wow!! Loved Alfonso’s dance!! Very fun.

And this is why having contemporary up against Salsa’s and Cha Cha’s on a night where immunity is in play is a crock of shit. Bethany’s dance was so far superior to Janel’s in difficulty and naturalness of performance it’s not even funny. Required steps and movements versus do what ever the hell you want – faux cry for a perfect score.

Well, at least we don’t get to hear sanctimonious Val. If my memory is correct, Alfonso picks first, Sadie second.

Alfonso picks Lea and Lea picks Jive – Alfonso just KILLED it. Lea’s not doing to badly either.

Guessing Sadie picks Beth and Beth picks rumba.

I can understand Artem’s strategy. Kinda glad that Derek and Beth don’t have to pick (most likely).

What kinda crack is Carrie Ann on?

Alfonso wins. Sadie picks Beth as predicted. Derek, in a surprise, picks a dance they haven’t done before. What kinda crack is HE on? :-D

Hmmm…that was the clash of the titans. I agree with that. But I think I would have given it to Sadie. It shouldn’t matter, regardless, as I don’t think either of them are at risk next week.

So, it’s added to *tonight’s* score?? How does that help them for tonight? It helps them for next week, so it wipes out Janel’s lead. So…how is this fair? Shouldn’t it have been added to last weeks score to help them tonight??

Okay, so I heard Emma say that Janel/Val have 43 points – so they were given the three points. Interesting how that has NEVER happened in previous seasons with immunity dances.

The twitter vote is interesting. Sadie/Beth were almost tied 48/52. Alfonso KILLED Lea with 85%. And Tommy killed Michael with 72 percent. If that’s reflective of the voting (which it probably isn’t), – interesting.

They were called safe in the order this show may end:
Alfonso
Bethany
Sadie
Lea

Tommy and Michael were the last two standing.

Michael was eliminated. Will miss Emma very much.

How did we do?

Courtney: Michael will go

Heidi: Michael will go

Vogue: Michael will go

See Sneak Peek Of Sadie Robertson’s New DWTS Costume, Song Reveal

Well, I have to say Sadie Robertson’s costumes have been off the hook this season and it’s no different this week. To see a sneak peak, see E Online. Also note that Sadie and Mark will be dancing to “Uninvited” by Alanis Morrisette!

And Sadie is certainly dressing the part, as we’ve got your exclusive first look at the 17-year-old’s costume. In the sketch above, you can see Sadie is daring to “bare”—wearing a nude bodysuit with green leaves all over it, while the skirt will entirely be made with leaves. Taking the Eve-theme to the next level, there will be vine details on her leg and arm and she will be dancing barefoot!

“This is perfect,” Sadie exclusively tells E! News of her latest DWTS look. “I’ve had feathers and beads. Now leaves!”

For Dynamic Duos week on the ABC reality hit, Sadie and Mark will be dancing contemporary to “Uninvited” by Alanis Morrisette…

ETA: From AOL via Splash News, here’s a fun little video to take in before tonight….

Dancing with the Stars Season 19, Week 8 – Who’s Dancing What….and When? (Song Spoilers)

Well, this week is somewhat confusing – or it was – but thanks to Derek’s blog I think we have a slightly better than vague understanding of what’s going on. :-D  So, each couple will dance their assigned dance – they dynamic duo – shown below. After that, the person with the high score is “immune” from elimination tomorrow night. The person in second place gets to choose who they want to dance against and that couple gets to choose the style of dance.  The winner of the dance off gets…3 points??  Where did I get that from, as I don’t think it was Derek. Somewhere on this site most likely and I”m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong.

Put on yer tin foil hats, kids – who wants to take bets on who’s going to get that precious immunity?  While I am certainly one to think that they manipulate the hell out of this show to serve some (often barely) hidden agenda, the plain fact is that the last two times they did this immunity thing, it was won by Amber and Kellie – both went on to win the show, so clearly they were not in much danger.  But then, you have to look back at the “winner take all cha cha” which was just another form of immunity that they handed to Chelsea – someone we had been predicting was on her way out for a week or two prior to that. So, I guess it depends on what the true agenda is – save a family member (Chelsea, Janel) or just to screw around and make the show more complicated than it has to be? I guess we have to wait and see.  Lord knows, the two women that we’ve been speculating could be in trouble certainly got dance styles very much in their favor. AGAIN, in Janel’s case.
