Afterbuzz TV has posted their new commentary for Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Week 7. This time Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson joined them. I haven’t watched this in full yet, but will later. See if you agree with them this time and let us know in comments….
Kind of a strange, low-energy night for me – I feel like everyone, across the board, had kind of a so-so night, and I think it’s due in part to the fact that two dances a week are really starting to wear on some of the couples. I think I notice it more this season than any other season – some are dealing with injuries, some are dealing with strained partnerships, some are dealing with illnesses, and everyone seems to be feeling the pressure.
I think most of us can agree that it was not Nicole’s time to go home – however, I’m appalled at some of the sources of blame I’m seeing from those who are upset about it, and I place a lot of blame on the shoulders of TPTB for some really sh*tty scoring decisions. Nicole got a very kind score for her samba – while it wasn’t bad, I certainly don’t think it was 27-worthy, as she seemed to struggle with timing and there was very little hip action. So you can’t blame scores for her exit…although the judges likely screwed her over by overscoring just about everyone except Bill – it only served to make the margins smaller, which meant that someone below her needed even fewer votes to surpass her. And this was ON TOP of the big points dump from last week, so the margins were itty bitty. And sorry, but those of you upset about her going home – you were actually voting for her, right? Cause I’m finding that the biggest complainers about Nicole’s exit were people that didn’t bother to throw a single vote her way all season. If you didn’t vote, you don’t get to bitch & moan, and you are part of the problem. Snookole needed VOTES…and she didn’t get them. Kinda how this show works…this isn’t really a revelation, kids.
And fair warning: I’m going to be prone to bouts of rantining this week, after some of the wanton idiocy and deductive reasoning leaps I witnessed after last night’s elimination. I’m allergic to stupid, y’know
1/2.) TIE: Corbin & Karina and Amber & Derek – Just kind of an odd night from both of these couples – I don’t feel like either one was operating at peak performance levels. I think Corbin & Karina coped as well as they could with a rather odd cha-cha song – seemed like there was a lot of what Len would call “frippery”, though…lotta side-by-side hip-hop sections, but I kinda blame the rhythm changes in the song for that. Someone on Twitter remarked that Karina seemed stressed – and yes, I have to agree, and wonder if the constant pressure to make their routines better and better is beginning to wear on she & Corbin’s partnership. Then there was Amber & Derek, who both had injuries to contend with – while I think they handled their paso doble well, I think Derek did kinda take the safe route on it; seemed like it wasn’t as daring or impactful as some of the other paso dobles we’ve seen from him. Pleasant to watch, yes; super-innovative and exciting? Not really. Let’s hope they can get back into good physical form so they can tackle more daring stuff. Read more..
For media starters today, let’s go straight to all the new interviews with Snooki and Sasha! It was so sad seeing them go too soon. I have to say (like so many of you have said in comments this season)….Snooki surprised me. I was never a big fan to her before she did Dancing With The Stars. Before the season started, I forecasted her as being the “most dramatic”. Was I ever proven wrong. She was nothing but refreshing and a pure delight to watch on this show….and so fun and cute too. And Sasha…I have to give him props too. He was fierce out there on the dance floor with her. I especially loved their high jumps and cartwheels, etc. Ok, enough from me, here are their interviews. I love how Sasha said she was “a dream come true” from him…
Stay tuned! We’ll have more with these two later. xx
ETA: Below are Snooki and Sasha on GMA. Also, be watching The View. Around mid-day, they should be posting their interview from today’s episode.
ETA2: If you visit People, you can see an interview with Snooki. Bill and Emma and Cheryl and Jack chime in on her departure as well.
This past week has been a little rough on Snooki being she had lots of press for her show “Snooki & JWOWW and she had to learn two dances for Dancing With The Stars. Each week on Dancing With The Stars is getting harder and harder, but, Snooki is excited for tonight. Here is more from People.com.
Each week just keeps getting harder and harder, but with each week I feel Sasha and I trying even harder and we definitely aren’t ready to leave the competition yet.
I’m so excited for our group number! We are the “Spooky Bom Boms.” (We’re competing with Val and Elizabeth, Emma and Bill and Tony and Leah). I feel like our group is different from the other group because we all are goof balls. We are all here to have the best time out of this experience and were ready to dance.
Can’t wait for the show! We’ve all been working very hard this week so we hope our audience enjoys every minute of Monday night’s episode!
Hey All! This is fun teaser….and kind of riveting! Check out People.com. They have a new video where you can watch the team captains picking the couples for their team dance. They get told about their songs too. More at People.com.
Indeed Brooke, “let the rehearsals begin”!!
Today former dancing contestant Christina Milian was a guest on Good Morning America (along with Enrique Iglesias! *sigh ). Christina talks on Dancing With The Stars and how no one knows if there will be one or TWO eliminations tonight!! The pressure is on. They interview Cheryl and Jack in rehearsals. They’ve been dancing as if it’s their last dance. Emma and Bill were also interviewed. They were so relieved to be called safe last week. They are all scared and working really hard. Bill says, “Everyone is kinda crunching right now”.
ADDING: So, with a “big announcement” coming, are they trying to prepare us that there is a “double elimination” tonight? I don’t know what to think?
ADDING2: Btw, Jack and Bill’s dances for tonight look pretty good in rehearsals. Let us know your thoughts.
Snooki gives us a tiny sneak peek of she and Sasha’s Samba for Monday night! At Celebuzz she writes that “it’s obviously still a work in progress”. Watch this to see why. She’s too funny and let’s hope she’s ok from this tumble. Does anyone know what song this might be?
Also, see People when you get a minute. She and her family dressed in “The Wizard of Oz” characters for a Halloween outing. They look so cute!!
