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 .

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, Week 6 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Well, after the horror that was switch-up week it will almost be nice to go on to “Famous Dances Night”. I say almost because…I’m not a fan of this particular week. I said this in the live blog yesterday, but in watching much of seasons 5 through 10 for a thing I’m working on for PureDerekHough, I realized two things: first, they danced for a good minute and a half even in the first week of the season, and second – they JUST DANCED. Regular dances, with the exception of fun stuff like Derek and Joanna’s futuristic Paso Doble and Nicole’s 50’s Paso. That’s as outrageous as they got. It was quite refreshing. Do you think we’ll EVER get back to just dancing??

ETA: We have our first spoiler for famous dances week! This one is kind of a tough one, but I think Von has the personality to carry it off even if he isn’t up-to-snuff with his dance skills. Although, full disclosure: I was really hoping the hint he gave about Napoleon Dynamite a few weeks ago was a clue that he was doing “Canned Heat” 😛 -Court-

ETA2: We have a few more, and it’s unfortunately looking like we’re gonna have a bunch of reused songs (which is to be expected, really, considering what a beast it can be to get songs cleared). I feel like Nyle’s song/concept has been done to death – isn’t this like the 4th or 5th time someone has used it? Helio, Rick, Shawn, somebody else? He will do well, but I worry that it’s not going to be terribly special in the grand scheme of things. As for Ginger – source says she is having a hard time really being “Nasty”, but I daresay she’s gotta be better than Candace, who danced a pretty kindergarten-y jazz to it back in season 18.  I much preferred Lil Kim’s samba 8-D Anyone else find it funny that Val gets Janet Jackson as an iconic dance for the 2nd season in a row? -Court- Read more..

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. :-)

Nyle DiMarco Interviewed On Dancing With The Stars, Peta Murgatroyd, His Competition, And More

Parade interviewed Nyle DiMarco. Nyle talks of what it’s like to work with Peta Murgatroyd on Dancing With The Stars. He also talks of his competition and much more.

What’s it like working with Peta?

Peta is amazing. She is very patient and yet at the same time

picky. Her teaching method with me is very visual and this is how I pick it up. She’s also a lot of fun and we share a lot of laughs every day. We always look forward to rehearsing. I don’t think I’ve ever felt that before but she’s a great teammate and makes everything fun. I believe this is why we’re great.

Now that you have a few weeks under your belt, who do you see as your biggest competitors?

Wanyá [Morris], Paige [VanZant], Ginger [Zee], and myself!

Do you have your sights set on the mirror-ball trophy?

I see this as a personal challenge AND a chance to make a statement. I think this is why I work twice as hard. Why I am one hundred percent into this. The Deaf community has been in the dark age for a while now. I feel the need to reframe our community positively and better Deaf youth’s lives, and with the DWTS platform, I can — but it’s not enough until I win. And in order to win this and better our lives, I must be the best.

It is the best kind of obligation I have. The best.

Nyle DiMarco Interviewed On Dancing With The Stars, He Had Bad Dreams At First

Be sure to pick up a copy of In Touch Weekly Magazine if interested. Dancing With the Stars contestant Nyle DiMarco how he’s never let being deaf hold him back from something he wanted to do. However, he was scared when he was asked to do Dancing With The Stars. Below he explains…

“I’ve always thought I could do anything. Growing up, my mom used to say ‘challenge’ was my middle name,” Nyle says via an interpreter. “I sailed the whole East Coast. I traveled the world alone. Being deaf doesn’t make a difference to me.”

Nyle confesses that he had no previous experience in dance before this opportunity.

“When they asked me to be on the show, I was scared! I had bad dreams about it. I was like, ‘Can I do this?!’”

“This is new for me, but I’ve never felt any barriers or limitations — and I love a challenge!” says the single star, who’s proficient in sign language and lipreading.

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, Week 4 – Dancing by the Numbers

There is SO much I could say about the scoring this past week on DWTS – so much BS, so little time. It’s already been mostly said, no need to go over it again. Ridiculous.

Ridiculous scoring leads to problematic leader boards! I think it’s very unlikely that there will be an elimination this week, what with the switchup and all – they’ve not done one to date, I see no reason to change now, UNLESS they have succeeded in getting rid of Doug. If it’s mission accomplished, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them do one. But I am working under the assumption there won’t be one. Here are the numbers from Week 4: Read more..
