Peta Murgatroyd and Jonathan Bennett are going to make such a good pairing for the switch up for Dancing With The Stars, but, I’ll miss her with Tommy too. Two more days and counting…
Wow, everyone is getting a tiny bit hosed this week in terms of either song or style – in some cases both. Except for Janel of course. The pimpage increases – do wish they’d quit trying so hard to make her happen and just let the show evolve more organically. All you screamin’ Val fans whining and crying about Derek asking Colbie to sing while he and Beth danced can STFU now. Not only did she get a dance very close to what she’s trained in, she got the artist singing for her this week (rumor, anyway) – and that artist is also guest judge! Much more preferential treatment than Derek going to a friend and asking her to sing. I expect that the hypocritical among you won’t be satisfied, regardless. Too bad, so sad.
Actually, giving Lea “Broadway” is pretty obnoxious too, considering that she just had contemporary – but I think she could use two good weeks in a row. She’s not getting the pimpage that Janel is. I like her a lot and think she has a lot of potential. Unfortunately, doing Broadway doesn’t really give Val the opportunity to fix her posture problems that she’s had in ballroom/latin numbers.
Rumor going around that Joey Fatone is singing Jonathan and Peta’s song – for reals? Too much weirdness for me this week.
ETA: Mike and Antonio…the latter is totally screwed, I’m thinking. What a craptastic song.
ETA2: So, they won’t show Tommy’s “salute” on camera, but will give him songs which heavily imply the same? :::rolls eyes:::
Janel and Artem (Val) – Burlesque (“Mama Knows Best” by Jessie J )
Jonathan and Peta (Allison) – Jitterbug (“Rock this Town” by The Stray Cats )

Wow! This is going to be one intersesting night!
Yep, almost missed this. Someone turned my alarm off. :::cough::: Which means I have to take a shower right now and risk missing something again. Gotta go to work, ya know. Real job.
Anyway, watch this space…. Out of the show, now I’m impatient. I guess I’ll go comb out my wet hair. Isn’t this exciting??
Okay, they just said “8:21″ – I might have time to get dressed.
Here we go…

Alfonso – Cheryl
Antonio – Allison

So, How does the reality compare to our Predictions, keeping in mind that our “predictions” were based on real research?
Question for you: Are TPTB finding a way to eliminate the spammers or just doing whatever the hell they want?? Because the numbers I saw, even with a huge margin of error, didn’t result in these pairs. Not all of them anyway.
Question 2: Giving Janel Burlesque seems like a pretty strong PIMPAGE move. Agree or disagree??
Did you know Tommy Chong works out? Lots more cool info on him in this new interview with Access Hollywood. They also play “Weed with Friends”. lol
