I’m getting excited for Eras Night on Dancing With The Stars, are you? Here are a few fun teasers I couldn’t resist posting. Bring it on, Everyone!
It's not easy choreographing a number for me. Not only am I not a dancer, I am made differently, and that's okay!! I've discovered @sashafarber1 has a huge vault of creativity driven by an open mind. Thank you for creating our world of dance Sash. It's impossible to have a better partner @dancingabc . Can't wait for Monday! #dwts #teamxl
James Hinchcliffe talked with Fox Sports Live about racing and of course Dancing With The Stars and all of it’s challenges. Great interview. Thanks to Abby for the fun find.

Below are some new Dancing With The Stars Diaries for Week 7. Be sure you watch this link as they may release more.
James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess talked on their Jitterbig. This will be the first week they do tricks. Lots more below. Thanks to Abby for the heads up.
ETA: Here’s another Facebook rehearsal from today….
Another week, another bout of wackiness when it comes to judges scoring – luckily not as bad as in previous weeks. Well, perhaps I should say ‘not as widespread’ as in previous weeks because it was still pretty bad in at least one instance.
If Len had been around this week, Jana would have gotten a 7 or 8 for her Argentine Tango – I think you can count on it. He’s shown recently that he doesn’t limit that just to Derek’s partners. But he wasn’t there so the travesty of Jana getting a perfect score while the better AT is three points lower. Why? Well, I suspect that Jana has been on the bubble and the leader board this week reflects the top half (to the judges) and the bottom half…with Marilu kinda straddling the middle ground, which is quite dangerous. The judges, I think, have roughly grouped the couples in that way – with the possibility of Calvin falling out of favor and Marilu rising. I think the jury is out for them on those two couples. Everyone else is either top three or bottom three. …Read more
My cynical side (which is more than a “side” at this point and more like 2 thirds), says that “Decades” week is a cluster f@#k waiting to happen. I mean really, there are some craptastic decades for music and this is a show that has real trouble picking appropriate music when NOT limited to specific decades. …Read more
DISCLAIMER: As I write this, I am currently under the influence of some new migraine meds that have the unfortunate side effect of making me very, very foggy – if my struggle to find the word “paint can opener” the other day at Sherwin Williams was any indicator, I’m definitely experiencing some aphasia; additionally, the fact that I put a carton of coconut milk in my purse and put my iPhone in the refrigerator while putting away groceries yesterday probably points to some general absentmindedness. So forgive me if the words don’t come as easily today as they usually do – I’m told this passes after about the two week mark, so fingers crossed…
…and perhaps it is the effects of the medication, or perhaps not, but I’m left feeling a bit unsure of what to make of last night’s show. I guess I should have known by about the 20 minute mark that things had already gone completely off the rails – we had Pitbull prematurely scoring (and then being completely late scoring the rest of the night, and having a suspiciously hard time with those paddles), Erin making painfully obvious double entendres about Ryan’s “facials”, and Ryan trying to make black light paint a thing, but having it look more like sunburn art. Then there was that pinata that Erin was curiously insistent that everyone hit, but only appeared to be filled with glitter. Go fig…but perhaps more peculiar was the scoring, which at times left me wondering what exactly the agenda really was. Part of me thinks TPTB may be falling out of love with Laurie (or may at least be seeing that she may not actually be a sure thing for the win), they seem suddenly obsessed with Jana (after appearing to be rather lukewarm about her thus far this season), they seemed to very slightly ease up on their “underscore Calvin at all costs” edict of the past several weeks, they seemed to finally drop the hammer on Terra (after heaping sometimes over-the-top praise on her the first few weeks of the season), and they seem to kick their praise of James into overdrive (which even I, as a James fan, can agree was a bit too much). Are they trying to shape their ideal finale? Or are they even taking it a step further, and shifting gears from gunning for a Laurie win…to gunning for a James win? I think it will be very, very interesting to see how things go once Len is back on the panel next week…when daddy’s away, the other three stooges seem to play; but when he’s back, they seem to get back to business.
Wish I could say I was sad to see Amber leave, but I got the impression that she really wasn’t having much fun anymore, and that she never really got comfortable being on the show – so I don’t think she was all that disappointed to go, either. I think Maks collected his paycheck and is happy to be back to being a stay-at-home-dad-to-be. I didn’t see too many fans outrageously upset, either – Amber’s exit was minimally disruptive. I’ll admit – at one point in the show, I told myself I wouldn’t be terribly disappointed if Jana left instead of Amber, but in the end, I guess I’m partially glad the former stayed, because I think Gleb is more of an asset to Marilu’s team dance than Maks ever would have been. Speaking of which – if you haven’t yet, check out our team dance spoiler post, if for no other reason than to justify my waking up at 2 AM to reveal the teams 😛 Read more..
