DWTS 9 Week 5 – Results Show Clips

Oh, there was some good stuff in the results show last night, in addition to the MJ Tribute. I really liked the “behind the scenes of a Monday” bit – kinda cool. Sure, it was all set up, but I still enjoyed seeing it.

I’m normally a big Nora Jones fan, and I liked her performances – but I can’t say it’s the best I’ve seen her:

LOVED Jonathan and Anna T’s dance to this song. Gorgeous.

Here’s a video of all the pre-tribute discussion from the pros and the Jackson family that I don’t think I posted before:

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. :-)

DWTS Season 9 – More Pictures and Something New

I found a lengthy article on Season 9 at Daemon’s TV - a site I’ve not previously heard of. As far as I remember. Anyway, they have a bunch of new pictures, including some of Lacey Schwimmer and Mark Decascos – see below. In addition, they also have some information that I’ve not seen before  for this season which actually concerns me a bit. They say that there will be another pro competition for a spot on the show. As you know, we have more pros than we (normally) have celebrities.  I don’t know that we need to add more – although some of the older ones are getting  a bit stale, plus I would not be at all surprised to find that Derek and Mark need a season off. This will be their fifth in a row, in addition to multiple tours and peforming with their band, the Ballas Hough Band. Even at the young age of 24 and 23, respectively, that is a LOT of work.  I guess we’ll find out if this is true in a couple weeks.

Some excerpts from the article:

Following is the schedule for Season Nine (dates and times subject to change):

* “Dancing with the Stars,” two-hour performance show, MONDAYS beginning, SEPTEMBER 21 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) through NOVEMBER 16

* “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” one-hour, TUESDAYS beginning, SEPTEMBER 29 (9:00 -10:00 p.m., ET) through NOVEMBER 17

* “Dancing with the Stars,” 90-minute performance show, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23 (8:30-10:00 p.m., ET)

* Season Finale, two-hours, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET)

Dancing with the Stars” returns with new surprises and all the elements viewers have come to know and love, including the Pro Dancer Competition, where world class professional dancers have the opportunity to compete live on the “Results Show” for a guaranteed spot on next season’s show. “Macy’s Stars of Dance,” which features some of the most renowned dancers and choreographers of our time, will also be back on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show.” One of the Macy’s Stars of Dance performances will be the hugely popular “Design-a-Dance,” where fans have the chance to select their favorite professional dancers, dance styles and wardrobe at www.abc.com. In addition, couples will once again take part in a team formation dance, and a variety of new elements will be incorporated into routines involving all couples. Four new dance styles — the Bolero, the Charleston, the Two Step and the Lambada — are also going to be introduced. The middle stages of the competition feature the return of the “Dance Off,” where contestants will perform a dance style of their choosing to fight for their spot in the competition, and three consecutive double eliminations promise the most dramatic period of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Be sure to click the link above as there is more to the article and many more pictures than what I’ve posted here.

DWTS Season 9 Cast – Mark Decascos and Lacey Schwimmer

St Petersburg hosts Mixed Martial Arts Event – fightFORCE

According to Access Hollywood, Mark and Lacey are officially paired up!  Hee – we called that one right. :-)

Access Hollywood has learned that Lacey Schwimmer has been paired with Food Network host Mark Dacascos. Lacey took on the task of dancing with “Jackass” star Steve-O last season. Before that, Lacey made it to the final three with former *NSYNC star Lance Bass.

Access Hollywood is also claiming that Kelly Osborne will be with Louis Van Amstel – which of course leaves Sabrina….I mean Melissa Joan Hart with Mark Ballas. I guess we’ll see on these two – not my picks, so I’m skeptical. :-)
