DWTS Season 25, Week 2 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

How much would I kill to see Derek’s choreography to “Look What You Made Me Do”?? So, so much. :::sigh:::

Anyway, everyone does a dance on Monday night (first song and dance listed for each couple). Those who survive the Monday night elimination do the second dance to the second songs listed below. Latin on Monday Night, Ballroom on Tuesday?? Or do I have them backwards? Sorry, Vogue is in charge of the press release. Vogue? Eh, doesn’t matter at this moment – All first dances listed are on one night, all second dances listed are on the other night. Good enough for now.

Winners: Vanessa, for sure. Really?? Foxtrot and Salsa?? Lindsay isn’t faring too badly with Salsa and Quickstep, although the quickstep is going to be harder than the foxtrot – but Mark is a better choreographer, so there you go.

Losers: Everyone who got Samba – widely recognized as the hardest dance to do. Rumba is also going to be tough. I think Debbie may be especially hosed with Quickstep and AT – harsh.

Opportunity: Sasha, Jordan and Nikki, in particular, have a real opportunity to show two very different sides to themselves and show a lot of range.

Other thoughts?

ETA: Instastory order from DWTS Instastory from camera blocking on Saturday – except Drew, he wasn’t included so I stuck him at the end. He could go anywhere in this lineup. And the lineup was only partially right last week.

ETA2: Yeah, so far the instastory thing is only partially right this week too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Per George Pennachio. After killing it last week they move Lindsey to 3rd??
That bites. Well, as long as no one stays at the end of the night…But it seems Nick and Vanessa get the top of the hour again. Are Jordan and Victoria the only two who didn’t move from the second hour to the first hour??

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 25, Week 1 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Thanks to Rachel in the comments for the heads up on People’s (early, so we can’t spoil) reveal of the songs and dances for week 1. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Of course, I’ve been on vacation so I’ve not been paying attention anyway. When is the premiere again? ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, so People doesn’t have ALL the dances, but they have a good number. And, as usual, I look at some of these choices and I roll my eyes. Who the hell does Tango in Week 1?? Ridiculous. Of course, if Jordan and Lindsay kill it, it will go one of two ways. It will label him as a ringer and it will handicap him…or it will set him on the road to the finals. I wager it depends on the package and the running order. Hope he kills it. Foxtrot and Cha Cha are pretty standard week 1 dances. Salsa? Eh, it’s fine.

As I say EVERY SEASON, these are not in dance order until you see a dance order under someone’s name. Until then, it’s either alphabetical or just plain random.

ETA: Updated with Phone numbers. NOTE:These were handed out in alphabetical order and are not necessarily indicative of dance order.

ETA2: Via Disney ABC, the rest of the dances have been filled in. Also, get ready for a fun opening number which Judge Len Goodman will take part in.

The premiere will kick off with an exciting opening number featuring head judge Len Goodman and the entire cast of โ€œDancing with the Stars,โ€ choreographed by the showโ€™s own Emmy-winning Mandy Moore.

ETA3: And this is why I love Cheryl – she always shares when she’s dancing. ๐Ÿ™‚

ETA4: I’ve put the dances in order per Tom’s tweet based on a hunch by DWTS fan Claire. Seems like a good hunch to me, but note it could be off base. ๐Ÿ™‚ Seems like a good guess, though, since it puts Nick and Vanessa at the top of the hour, Cheryl opening the show, Mark/Lindsey close to the end. Nikki in the pimp spot would be interesting though. Perhaps she’s really good? Or have they designated Artem as the pro who should win this season? Read more..
