DWTS 12 – ABC Releases Another New Commercial For Dancing With The Stars

The other day we updated you on a new ABC ’39 second’ teaser for the new Season. Well, now ABC has released a ‘1 minute 34 second’ commercial with the full cast. The ending is hilarious. Watch this to see what I mean. This has to be one of the best commercials they’ve ever had. What do you think?

DWTS Season 12 – Three More Rehearsal Videos Released By ABC

Three more official rehearsal videos from ABC were released last night. Thanks to all who have sent us this news. Here are Petra and Dimitry, Kym and Hines, and Romeo and Chelsie. If you missed seeing the first set of released videos from ABC, go HERE.

So, what do you think? Petra seems to be struggling a little, but, Romeo is looking good. Hines looks REALLY impressive in my opinion. Wow!! He’s definitely getting into “the right frame of mind” in my opinion.

5 more days and counting, All! ;)

DWTS Season 2- ABC Releases First Set of Rehearsal Teasers (Videos)

Yesterday afternoon, ABC released it’s first set of rehearsal videos. You can view them all below. If you had to choose the best dancer from this selection, who would it be? I’d say it’s going to be hard to beat Chelsea and Mark. Ralph is looking better than he did in the last video we posted too. But, they are seriously looking good in their own individual ways. This Season is going to be so good.

Ok, let’s begin….

Anna stresses to Sugar that his legs are the money makers this time, not his arms.

Chelsea can’t stop kissing Mark, wha??

Kendra giving Louis booty.

Chris says, “…and we thought Master P was bad”. Look at that smile at the end.

Wendy says her shoulders are on vacation. What is she wearing?

Is this the Karate Kid? Whoa!

We posted this yesterday, but, I wanted to be sure to include Maks and Kirstie in this first ABC round up post. Kirstie shows Maks she can dance like Lacey or Edyta. Take your pick. :D

DWTS Season 12 – Sneak Peek Into New Dancing With The Stars Cast In Rehearsal

So many cool rehearsal photos released yesterday of some of our couples. I thought I’d post a few fun takes.

First up, Romeo and Chelsie. Romeo remarked the other day to PopTv that he’d rather wear his tennis shoes versus the goofy dance shoes they’ve insisted he wears. But, it looks likes he’s working it out nicely. Then again, you never know. Pictures can be deceiving. lol

It looks like Chris is trying to get Cheryl to wrestle here instead of dance. 8O

I’m wondering if Sugar Ray and Anna have the Fox Trot as their first dance since it looks like they are working on his posture? I bet Sugar is finding out he better submit and do whatever this fiery Russian red hair says. Anna is not about to take orders from anyone …including a former world champion boxer. :D

The pics above and more can be found at BroadwayWorld.com. More at BuddyTV.com and Zimbio.

Hollywood Life also caught up with a show insider who gave us a sneak peek into rehearsals. You are going to love this. This is good. Read on.

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy:

“These two might bump heads as the show moves on, he is working her pretty hard, and you can see she is not use to the level of dance discipline that Maksim expects. But she is happy that she has him as her partner. It is for sure a work in progress.”

Kendra Wilkinson and Louis van Amstel:

“She has rhythm and has been laughing a lot, she has that Kendra spunk and charm. They currently are working well with each other, she is having lots of fun. Her dance skills are not too shabby.”

Kendra’s mom, Patti, tells us, “I am thrilled with Kendra’s news [about DWTS], but I will not be in the audience.”

Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas:

“Watch out for these two, Chelsea is in it to win it and Mark Ballas and her have hit it off.”

Wendy Williams and Tony Dovolani:

“Wendy is not the best dancer in the world, but Tony’s patience has really helped a lot so far. Tony has his work cut out for him.”

Petra Nemcova and Dimitry Chaplin:

“Dimitry is so happy with Petra as his partner, he has hit the lottery in the looks department. Dimitry is really by the books, so their practices have been structures and very by the book. Petra hasn’t really shown how good of a dancer she is as Dimitry is more of an idea man before he puts it on the dance floor.”

Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke:

“Chris is in shape and can move and Cheryl could not be happier, she is whipping him in to dancing shape and he is picking it up very fast.”

Romeo and Chelsie Hightower:

“Romeo is leaps and bounds better then his dad was on the show and you can see Chelsie is very relieved. Her energy really has brought out something in Romeo.”

Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer:

“Mike knows that he has a target on his back and he is trying really, really hard. Lacey has been really determined and has got into Mike’s head that he has a chance.”

Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya:

“Sugar Ray has great footwork but needs a little more dance practice, he seems a bit too stiff currently but he is really listening to Anna and is willing to put in the work. He is still in pretty good shape.

Hines Ward and Kym Johnson:

“We have the dark horse, Hines is really good.”

Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff:

“Ralph might be the Jerry Springer of the show this year, he is so nice, but might not be the best dancer in the world. His attitude towards the process really is going to show and probably get him some votes.”
