You can catch a new Dancing With The Stars rehearsal interview with Sharna Burgess and Noah Galloway at The Insider. He wants to take on any challenge that comes his way….and that he is. More below…
Well, DWTS Season 20 Week 2 is in the history books and it was a pretty good week. There was nothing that made me snort in disgust (from the judges, anyway) and a whole bunch of pretty darn good to great dancing.
But, as usual, someone has to go home on Monday night. Last week I was pretty clear when I said “Either Charlotte or Redfoo” and said my number 1 choice for most likely to be eliminated was Charlotte. I was pleasantly surprised to find that she was safe – most likely by 0.10 percent. No, I don’t believe Suzanne was a real bottom 2. For her to be a real bottom 2, it meant that Charlotte got nearly 10k more votes per million votes cast than her and that Redfoo did nearly that much – and there ain’t no way you’re convincing me of that. Nope. I think that’s highly unlikely.
Now, normally, I would automatically assume that Charlotte was definitely the next to go. But I’m not so sure that’s true. Why? Well, let’s look at all the scores. …Read more
Sharna Burgess has written a new blog at Closer Weekly. She talks of the challenges putting her and Noah’s Samba together last week and her most special moment when Noah’s girlfriend surprised him on the show. She also teases on their new dance coming up for week 3 of dancing With The Stars. Be sure to see the link for more including some fun photos.
Of all the incredible moments last night, I have to say the one that got me the most was when Noah’s beautiful girlfriend, Jamie Boyd, ran up and surprised him! I had absolutely no idea and this is honestly one of the most gorgeous moments I have seen on ‘DWTS’ yet. I ended up backing away to let them have their moment and their own space. What a precious memory to have. Aren’t they the most awesome couple ever?!
Next week it’s Argentine Tango! Guess what that means… lifts! Yay! I’m already excited about what is developing creatively and I feel like seeing Noah in this character will be an awesome change from the last two weeks. We are using a prosthetic arm for this one, which will mean a lot of trial and error and seeing what can work!
Love you all and I know you are going to be so proud of Noah, just like I am.

I thought I would share with you how I craft these poems. I take them very seriously, mapping them out beforehand. I work on a legal pad dividing each pair up in sections, including opening numbers, etc. I re-watch the show taking copious notes so it is refreshed in my mnd. I do research if I need to. I often search for synonyms and new ways to express things. I try to keep them close to the theme of the week. I coin words and phrases such as I did in last week’s poem, Mandy Moore-tastic, to emphasize a certain part of the show. I take it and soar into my mind picking my brain for ideas to be creative. Poem titles can come way beforehand. Or as I’m writing the poem. I sometimes come up with ideas as I’m falling asleep, in the shower, anywhere. They have been really fun to do. I hope you are enjoying them. So happy for any comments!

THE NIGHT ENDED AND REDFOO AND EMMA HAD TO GO!
NEXT WEEK WILL BE LATIN NIGHT ON THE DANCING SHOW!
Kristyn Burtt, Jake_DuPree, and SuriSerano of Afterbuzz TV review Dancing With The Stars Season 20 Week 2. Trained dancer Darvina Plante is their guest. She went to school with Derek Hough, Julianne Hough, and Mark Ballas. She also lives with Keo Motsepe. Let us know if you agree or disagree with them all on the night.
Pleasantly surprised this week – not only with the scoring and the judging, but with the fact that, for the 2nd week in a row, there were no “phone-ins”: every last couple came out and gave it their all, even if it didn’t quite pan out the way they planned (sorry, Chris). Judging seemed pretty consistent and the scores seemed to match the critiques – one would think this should happen EVERY week, but it’s becoming more and more of a rarity these days…so for tonight, I am happy :-) But that could change next week…
Somewhat sad to see Redfoo & Emma go, but I’ll just leave it at this: I think staying in the competition would have potentially been quite stressful on both of them, as I think they may have forgotten to have fun a few times in rehearsal this week. Ultimately, though, Foo went out on a pretty high note – he was definitely the most improved from last week to this week, and he did show some serious potential…although I think he probably would have struggled just to get the votes week after week, because I just don’t see too many middle-aged, conservative-leaning housewives being huge LMFAO fans 8-)
1.) Nastia & Derek – I think Rumer & Val may have gotten a bit of a gut check after watching this dance – they ain’t the only ones who want that trophy :-) This was a great, almost technically-perfect rumba – Nastia’s got the lines and the feet and the arms and the posture and the extension. Here’s the problem I have: she seems to have a lot of walls up, and the chemistry between she & Derek was almost non-existent. I guess the best way I could describe her facial expressions is “girl who has never been kissed and doesn’t quite know whether to close her eyes or keep them open” :-) And another observation: I think Nastia may be an unfortunate sufferer of “resting bitch face” – I think her neutral face is just so serious and calm that it may come across as a tad standoffish…and I wish I had some advice for her on that, but some people just aren’t as smiley as others. Maybe stand in front of a mirror and practice smiling? I dunno :-P Hoping Derek can work with her on emotional connection, because the technique is there – she just needs to get a tad more vulnerable. Read more..
Okay, we’re trying something new. We’re putting this up on Tuesdays and updating as we find out information – as long as we’ll get no one in trouble, that is. :-) Note that next week is Latin Week. Below are some of the dances. Be sure to check out our Media post for new interviews.
ETA: ABC has released show information for March 30th. Listed below are the new songs for each couple. Be sure to read the link. It has some fun info on the opening number.
