Some things remind us of why we are all here and the political ads on Dancing With The Stars this past week, the pic above titled as the “All-Star Forefathers” by Dancing With The Stars Official Facebook, and the poem below by PureDWTS reader Lois were several of them.
THE BALLROOM SHUFFLE
The ballroom was shuffled, the deck was stacked
The dances were crazy mixed up, were attacked
The theme was fusion, a blending of two dances
Throwing cards in the air, taking many chances
Dance steps had to intertwine, into the other flow
We marveled as all the dancers aced them just so
Kelly and Val mixed Fox Trot, Cha-Cha with ease
Melissa and Tony mixed Tango, Cha-Cha to please
Emmitt and Cheryl gave the Rumba, Samba a whirl
Gilles, Peta gave Argentine Tango, Samba a twirl
Karina and Apolo’s Cha-Cha, Paso Doble excited
Max, Kirstie’s Quickstep, Samba surely delighted
A mixed up trio arrived to the Ballroom Shuffle dance
Two fellows dressed alike, only one will get the chance
Mark, chosen to dance Paso Doble, Tango with Shawn
All Derek could do was sit in the audience looking on
The Ballroom Shuffle experiment dazzled and amazed
The dancing cards shuffled, new dancing trails blazed
A swing dance marathon was danced to Do Your Thing
Who would be crowned Swing Dance Queen and King
The couples were tagged, they had to leave the floor
First to go were Kirstie and Max, were shown the door
Second to go, Gilles and Peta ended their swing dance
Apolo and Karina were tagged third, lost their chance
Fourth to be tagged, Emmitt, Cheryl’s time was done
Number Five, Shawn and Mark, had to leave the fun
It was down to two couples, who would get the score
Kelly and Val’s valiant try, number six, could go no more
Tony and Melissa’s endurance made them last to go
Winning the crown of the ballroom Swing Dance Show
Next week trios will dance together, not two but three
Kirstie and Max chose Tristan, what dance will we see
Kelly and Val chose Louis, three glide across the floor
Emmitt and Cheryl chose Kym, could not ask for more
Apolo and Karina chose Sasha from the dancing troupe
Melissa and Tony chose Henry, oh wow, what a group
Gilles and Peta chose Chelsie to help their dancing cause
Shawn and Derek chose Mark, to the ballroom’s applause
The deck was stacked, Ballroom Shuffle blazed the trail
Next Monday night the All-Stars will return without fail!

THE BALLROOM SHUFFLE PROVED A ROUSING SUCCESS!
NEXT WEEK THREE WILL DANCE, WE EXPECT NOTHING LESS!
Too fun, Lois! THANKS so much!!! And now between you, comments in other posts, and a tweet from reader Jimmboe Tuesday night has us wondering what your overall thoughts were on the “Dance Fusion”? Would you all like to see the Dance Fusion make a reappearance in the future on Dancing With The Stars? Lets get some numbers. Take our new Poll below and let us know what you think in comments too if interested….
I’m voting “No”. The Dance Fusion was ok for something different, but, I really like just watching the couples just dancing to one style of dance. I wouldn’t want to see the Dance Fusion become a seasonal thing.
Wow, did you ever hear the ballroom get so quiet as it did last night when Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel were eliminated on Dancing With The Stars? Those silent moments just about said it all, didn’t they?! Sad!! With some voters not being able to vote last week (because of the election debates and the baseball game messing with the schedule in some parts of the Country) and this week (because of the hurricane), we were all expecting we might have a surprise elimination. Even still, Sabrina and Louis…one of the best couples to dance on this show? No! Last night, after the show was over, judge Carrie Ann Inaba was tweeting that we should tell producers we want a “judges save” if we didn’t like the “surprise elimination”. Sorry Carrie Ann, I just can’t do it. Even though I don’t think it’s fair Sabrina and Louis are leaving early, the judges have enough control of this show as it is. What do you guys think? Let’s take a POLL:
With that said, here’s to Louis and Sabrina!! I think what I’ll remember the most about Sabrina is not her high performance energy and passionate dancing, but, her overall genuine love for Dancing With The Stars. A lot of celebrities come and go on this show without taking one look back. Not Sabrina. She LOVES Dancing With The Stars so much!! Here are some interviews from after their elimination last night to get their reactions. They have nothing but good things to say on the show, the cast, the fans, and each other. Read more..
Annie Barrett of EW wrote up a piece on Dancing With The Stars last night! She’s a hoot always and seems to always voice what the fans generally think without minsing words. Did she do the same again? Read on to see….
Congrats to Team ‘Gangnam Style’ — a.k.a. American Psy — for delivering what was in many ways the best and worst group dance Planet Mirrorballus has ever seen. Mostly worst! It was the best if you love tepid messes and things that make no sense, which obviously I do because it’s season 15 and I’m still sitting here in my fringed boots typing about an alternate universe. Like Kelly Monaco said, “Sometimes… trainwrecks are fun to watch.”
Somehow this group f(l)ail earned Kelly, Kirstie, Emmitt, and Not-At-All-Powerful Captain Gilles three 9s, probably because if the judges had scored it fairly the entire leaderboard would have been messed up. I’m fine with that. I might even award them all 9s myself provided I’d never have to see Gilles peering into Peta’s crotch, Kirstie and Maks’ “mat exercises,” and Bruno sniffing O Captain His Captain’s lointowel ever, ever again. EWWWW.com.
LOL! She’s too funny!! I still can’t believe the judges would give Team Gangham “9’s”? 😕
So, we’re curious on some Poll numbers for the fans favorite TEAM DANCE? No, Polls aren’t always accurate, but, our Polls at PureDWTS seem to be pretty close. So, what do you think: Team Gangnam or Team Call Me Maybe? Which Team Dance did you think was the best this week? Note: this isn’t a Poll for who your favorite dancers are. Try to keep them out of it and only vote on the dances themselves? If you need to watch or relive the dances again, you can do so at the end of this post!
Thanks so much for your vote! Be sure to tell us how you voted in comments too if you like!
