DWTS Cheryl Burke Interviewed About New Partner, Goals For The Season, The New Promo, and More

Cheryl Burke tells Parade.com it’s “nice and refreshing” having DL Hughley as her new partner for Dancing With The Stars Season 16. Cheryl also talks about his dance ability, their rehearsals, and who is his biggest competition. She also discusses the cast’s goal for the new season in bringing back the fun….

On working and rehearsing with Hughley.
“We’ve only done two rehearsals so far, and it’s just been really fun. It’s my first time having a comedian on the show, so it’s nice and refreshing to not take things too seriously. But he definitely does want to go far in the competition and he says he wants to win, so he’s working hard. There’s a great balance.”

On Hughley’s dancing ability.
“He’s doing good. He’s very rhythmic, which is a very good sign. It’s always too early to tell when you’ve just rehearsed a couple of days, but he’s just trying to get used to the dance shoes, and loosening his hips up, and coordinating everything together. It’s just those first baby steps. I will know more later if he has potential or not. Right now, we’re just focusing on learning how to walk. We’ll see what happens.”

On who their biggest competition is.
“D.L. thinks his biggest competition is Andy Dick. You have the two comedians there and they’re probably going to be head-to-head.”

On how this season will compare to past years.
“I think it’s fresher. We’re trying to bring the fun back into the show. I think past seasons have been a little too competitive, so I think people just want to bring back that fun and friendly family show that they’ve seen in the past. All Stars was a little too much. At the end of the day, this is an entertainment show, and there’s no need to be that competitive. We’re not on Survivor or anything!”

More at Parade.com including Cheryl’s thoughts about the pros who weren’t asked to come back to dance, the new Pitbull promo, and more.

DWTS Season 16, The Music Video (Entertainment Tonight)

As most know by now, Pitbull and the season 16 pro dancers filmed a video the other day as a way to promote Season 16. This was covered by Entertainment Tonight as seen in the video below. ET says this was done to promote DWTS, so I’m assuming we’ll see it in a commercial. Can’t wait!!  Perhaps as soon as Monday night during the Bachelor??

Turn your audio UP – don’t know what the issue is with getting decent audio off my device, but it is what it is. :-)

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Pros To Star In New Pitbull Music Video

Below are some pictures from some of the pros of Dancing With The Stars. When they first started tweeted them yesterday, we thought they were some teasers for their Title Shoot sessions for Dancing With The Stars Season 16, but, now we’ve found out (thanks to Karina Smirnoff) that the photos were shot behind the scenes of a new music video for Pitbull. It’s also possible the video could be part of a new commercial. Thanks to everyone who has helped us piece together with this story.

Below is Cheryl Burke and Kym Johnson…

Note how Peta Murgatroyd is in it and she’s back to being a blonde. Oh, how I wish I could see Sharna Burgess’ boots a little better?!! Exciting!!

DWTS 12 End of Season Award Winners – Which Musical Guest Was the Best?

John: Seriously. How do you decide on this one?

Vogue: I have to say this was kind of lackluster Season for entertainment in my opinion. I was hoping for Katy Perry, Rihanna, or Lady Gaga. But, from the choices, I picked New Kids On The Block/Backstreet Boys. I so loved the boy bands and it was great seeing them again. I loved Hanson too!

Courtney: This category drives me absolutely NUTS because there’s so damn many musical acts each season, and a ridiculous number of write-in votes.  People, please – Josh Groban’s name is spelled like that, and there are no alternative spellings.  And whoever wrote in “Hanson FTW” – you irk me. :-) Echoing John’s sentiments, I’m a little perplexed as to how Adele managed to win this one.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Adele, but she only sang one song (with laryngitis) and was forced to bow out of the second one due to aforementioned laryngitis.  It was an ok performance – but not her best.  But alas, Adele is popular with our readers – laryngitis or not! I’m with Vogue on this one…I’m such a boy band fangirl, and I’m ridiculously excited to see NKOTBSB here in Indy later this month ;-) I actually thought they put on the best “show” of all the musical acts – you could tell they had put some thought into their performance, and hadn’t just flown in at the last minute and been like “Ok, we’re here, give us some dancers and we’ll do a quick run-through.” Hanson was a nice addition to the performance show – definitely better lead-in music than Harold Wheeler’s many variations on the DWTS theme.  I really enjoyed Michael & Delta as well – wish I could say the same for the Black Eyed Peas.  But you guys already know how I feel about them – let’s just say I found a very apt comment from someone on Twitter that likened them to a venereal disease. ;-) Jennifer & Toby seemed a little unenthusiastic to me, and I thought Chris Brown did ok given the firestorm surrounding his performance.  Rounding out the dreaded write-in category: Josh/Johs/Joe Groban/Grobin/Grodin/etc. (8), David Garrett (3), Katherine Jenkins (1), Pitbull/Neyo/Nayer (1), Selena Gomez (1), Pia Toscano *snicker* (1), and “they all sucked” (1).  One performance I kinda wish someone had mentioned – James Blunt.  I thought his performance with Val & Daria dancing was one of the most entertaining for me, and seriously – that guy has come a long way since his first album, when he was a total Debbie Downer.  Did he get some action or something? The dude has rainbows coming out of his ass these days! :-)

Marianya: Courtney, Vogue… I guess I’m jumping on that fangirly boyband bandwagon. The most memorable musical act for me was NKOTBSB hands down. I mean it seems like it was prepared and created for the DWTS stage as opposed to just something tossed together or taken from a past tour act, that I likey, I likey a lot.

Heidi: I was inordinately fond of that one Hanson boy’s suspenders. :-)  I don’t know WHY I like such things or why I get fascinated by them. :-) In any case, I found Hanson’s presence on that one performance show lent the show a new and different feel from usual. Now, I think I generally HATE theme nights on principle, but I liked their inclusion and I loved some of the songs they played. I dunno, it was new and different in a way that I liked for a change. :-)
