It’s Dancing With The Stars Season 22 “Semi-Finals! You can watch the first dances below in a few moments!! Stay tuned and keep checking back!
Welp, I hope you all voted a LOT. I’m afraid tonight is going to turn the finale into one of the worst ever on the show. Losing the work of either Mark or Lindsay would be a damn shame, and their partners are awesome too. I think I will watch the entire show with my fingers crossed that we don’t get an Argentine Tango in the guise of a freestyle next week.
Bindi is the cohost on All Access for anyone interested. An appearance by her hot blond partner would definitely salvage this show for me right now. 🙂
Where’s my wine??
It would lead me to drink less if you all would remember to NOT constantly hit refresh while the show is airing in the east, and make sure you have more than a one liner for a comment.
Wait. Tonight’s the first time that the semifinal votes have counted for the winner? Yeah…I think I know why that is. People better VOTE.
Despite Hip Hip Chin Chin being horribly overused on this show, Mark found a different way and dang, Paige didn’t miss a step. Perfect. Read more..
Dancing With The Stars Edyta Sliwinska talked with the couples last week after the show. Listen below as they tell her how they are feeling about the semi-finals. It’s going to be so hard to watch a double elimination tonight. 🙁
Below is Kym Johnson on Good Morning America today. She reviews the Semi-Finalists for Dancing With The Stars and gives hints on their dances tonight. What a tight competition this is. It really is anyone’s ballgame tonight.
It is weeks like this where I seriously consider not watching this show any more. To make matters worse, this season follows a season like the one we had with Bindi. Good lord, I’m not even sure where to start.
If I weren’t so lazy, I would go back and dig up half a dozen videos of CAI and the other bozos saying stuff like “You screwed up your footwork, but I don’t care!!” and then rewarding them with a 9 or a 10. I’m positive there’s a video out there of CAI commenting on how a dance was so entertaining she had to reward it with a high score, even though there was a slip up, or a lift, or some other issue. This is where they really pull back the curtain and you see it’s just an old dude at the controls and not some magical wizard – the manipulation is clear. Yeah, Wanya screwed up. But I would be WAY MORE okay with his scores if I wasn’t positive that worse dancing has been given higher scores when the dancer is one of the chosen. But Wanya isn’t one of the chosen. He gets the Bethany tone of voice along with the Nastia packages. I said it back when Bethany was on the show – just watch CAI’s body language and listen to her tone of voice when she’s talking to either Bethany or Wanya. It like they committed a capital offense. It’s all designed to show or imply to the viewer that the recipient just ain’t all that and they don’t deserve your votes. Bitch please. You aren’t in a position to be that condescending – you won the night in the Team dance, but that bar was pretty low.
And that clown Antonio is worthy of ass kissing and high scores despite the fact that he’s barely rehearsed until recently and threw Sharna under a bus? Yeah, not cool. If he’d been killing himself in rehearsal all this time, I MIGHT have a different opinion – but we know that isn’t the case. And spare me on the “he has another job” bs. Wanya has been touring this whole time and CANCELLED stuff so that he could rehearse more. Read more..

Emma Slater has write a new blog at Hollywood Life. Like so many of us, she’s rooting for Wanya and Lindsay. More below and at the link.
I really enjoyed the concept of last night’s show. The judges’ team dances definitely went down well for me. Bruno’s dance in particular caused a stir of conversation in the room where I watched it! Once again, the producers and the professional dancers (and I include the troupe in that) have shown expert innovation this season with an unparalleled level of brilliance.
Nobody is settling for “standard” anymore on DWTS. Everyone is pushing the boundaries with unique ideas and concepts. Wow, I’ve just noticed that I truly loved everyone’s dance tonight! At this point in the season, the routines and celebs have gotten so good that each performance is highly enjoyable and has its own great quality. It’s just down to personal preference. I’ll share with you now the couple I’m rooting for this season.
First off, Happy belated Mother’s Day to all you beautiful mums out there! We all owe you literally our lives — I love you mum! Second off Happy Birthday to Sasha! He turned 33 years young though he might as well be 18 because he certainly has the energy of a teenager. Tonight, I flew back from Vegas early after filming a music video just to surprise him with a MASSIVE chocolate cake (see my Instagram!) So I think he’s happy enough. That’s what everyone wants for a 33rd birthday, right?!
Here’s my thoughts on tonight:
I’m rooting for Wanya and Lindsay, because I get the most enjoyment watching them together, over any other couple. I think they are matched together perfectly and Wanya is an incredible dancer. You can’t deny it. The man has skill, and he’s got the will. I always love their temperament which goes a long way because let’s face it, we vote with our hearts first and our phones second.
