Lastly, according to Sasha Farber at his twitter, Sharna Burgess choreographed the opening number for tonight. So, keep that in mind too while you watch the show.

ETA: You can also view some pap videos of some of the cast arriving to rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars at this link.

ETA2: Thanks to People, you can watch Alfonso and Witney in rehearsal. Video added below. This is going to be fun. More at People too.

ETA3: A special note that I meant to add earlier. If you are thinking of low balling someone tonight while voting as a fourth judge and they don’t deserve it, just remember karma has a way of catching up. If you don’t want your favorite couple(s) low balled, then don’t do it to someone elses. Taking the high road, being honest, and using the honor system instead is always the classiest way to go. Show ABC that we can be a great 4th judge, not the opposite.

DWTS 19, Week 2 on Afterbuzz TV

Once again, I’m posting it without having a chance to watch the whole thing.  I love Keo. That is all. :-)  I’ll add my comments in the comments when I do see the whole thing. My one gripe is that they mention Lea’s training – but don’t acknowledge Janel’s. Janel has training in Jazz, Hip Hop, Broadway and other styles of dance and it’s much more recent than Lea’s.

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. :-)
