I loved Sonny Fredie Pedersen’s last dance single “Cha Cha”. Well here he is with a follow up single and video called “Tyrna”. Note that Nika Kljun choreographed the video. You might remember her from the first Move Live On Tour. The kids are so talented in this video too. Check them out.
Do you all remember Sonny Fredie Pedersen from the Dancing With The Stars troupe a couple of years ago? Well, below are a couple of videos from his new dance single “Cha Cha”! Go Sonny!! Way fun!!

It’s that time of year again and who knows what kind of funky will go down this season. Will Derek finally hang up his DWTS shoes? Will Artem get hosed again in favor of the ever annoying Val? Will Sasha finally get his chance? Will Sharna continue to follow in the wrong footsteps, making unwise statements? Who will take Allison’s spot? These questions and more will hopefully be answered soon. 🙂
I don’t want to hear about Jenna being dance captain. I think that is likely decided among the dancers themselves and I doubt it has any significance in regard to the show – maybe she’ll be a pro, maybe she won’t. Derek and Julianne’s dance captain was someone you’ve likely never heard of. So what?
Kristyn Burtt claims that the pros have been told rehearsals start on February 22 – it remains to be seen if that is true or if it actually happens. Last season was so…fluid…that we’ll have to wait and see. I do think we’ll start to hear stuff from those with a lack of ability to keep their mouths shut. 🙂 There are some Derek fans that worry his media sweep happening next week will include an announcement about his status. The media sweep is because of Disneyland 60 – if an announcement happens, it will likely be that he’s out. If he says nothing or hems and haws, it might be that he’s in. He’s a tough call, as usual Read more..
Here we are again!! It’s about that time of year, folks.
And, as usual, the pros that I don’t want to be in, are already in. Or in Derek’s case….mostly in. 🙂 He’s been telling fans in Meet and Greets that he’s likely going to be on but doesn’t want to confirm in case something happens to change that. DWTSGossip says that he did indeed say yes to this season – but as she correctly pointed out, he’s said no before and it turned into a yes. But, this is Derek’s life right now (many, MANY irons in the fire) – he’s not doing it for PR, he just doesn’t know what’s going to happen. Drives me crazy. 🙂 I’ll be writing a blog soon on PureDerekHough.com about my Meet and Greet and how he answered a particular question I asked him that bodes very well for his future.
Val has also said he’ll be back and, as reigning champ, that’s no surprise. He also doesn’t seem to have the options that Derek does. I also will be curious to see how much they pimp and manipulate for him and his partner, now that he actually has a MBT. This could be one of the more interesting things about this season – if their behavior toward him changes, now that it’s mission accomplished. Someone please explain to me why Sharna or Emma don’t get the pimpage treatment?? Their social media accounts can’t touch the men’s, but still.
What about Mark? I expect him back as it helps his music career, and now his studio, for him to be on the show. I think it’s about time for him to have another shot at the MBT again – it’s not like he’s been handed ringers the past couple seasons (unlike some), he’s just been surprised and fortunate, like Derek has in the past. But I haven’t seen any talk from him on the matter. Read more..
Or sort a live anyway. Everything hinges on how they decide to do this. Not to mention that it’s 6am here and “Live” isn’t a word that describes me at this hour. I will do my best to put all the info that comes out into this post. They keep hyping that it’s going to be “BIG” and all other kinds of adjectives that probably won’t live up to the hype – but we will see soon enough. 🙂 Scroll to the bottom of the post for the live updates that aren’t actual Pro names.
And here are your Pros – supposedly this is IT:
Val – IN
Tony – IN
Mark – IN
Artem – IN
Sharna – IN
Peta – IN
Emma – IN
Witney – IN
Allison – IN
Kym – IN
ETA: Teasing the announcement at 7:20ish. :::sigh:::
ETA2: I’ve done a great job on my eyebrows while waiting for this announcement…. 😉
ETA3: Definitely Kym Johnson in silhouette!! Damn, missed the baby pix. Court is saying one is Mark and there’s a little blonde boy. And Emma. 🙂
ETA4: I’ve gotten used to the far superior CBS This Morning which doesn’t have nearly the commercials and a lot more actual news. GMA is….not good.
ETA5: I don’t think those fans are that good – might be right on Val, but the other one looked like Artem to me. Love Melissa’s haircut.
ETA 6: Lost my stream, relying on Court. Val is for sure. They are claiming this is Len’s last “year”.
ETA 7: Still with the bigger and better tag line. Yeah. Sure. Switch up week is back.
ETA8: Hmmmm…..said there were four in studio and they have six more. ONLY TEN???
ETA9: If this is it, there’s going to be trouble on twitter. 🙂
ETA10: Questions to the pros. Val’s dream partner. Answer: His season 20 partner. Question to Sharna: How do you prepare for the season? Answer: Picking music, etc.
Well everyone, discuss!! Is this it for the pro dancers this season? Are they holding a few back because Celebs haven’t signed yet? What do you think of this cast?
ETA11: Vogue here. According to US Weekly, TWO more pros will be announced at a later date!
ETA12: The Official Site has announced there will be two more pros announced later. There is a great write up on the ten pros announced today at the link too.
ETA13: ABC Media Net released an official announcement of the 10 pros. They also release info on the theme nights one of which includes “Spring Break” night. WHA?? 😯
LIVE BLOG is happening here, which is where all the pros will be added as it happens.
Well, a lot has happened since I last wrote one of these posts. In fact, I normally post pro watch for the spring season in early February – yet here we are. Why? Well, Derek is taking a season off to star at Radio City (looks so happy he may never come back), Cheryl appears to have retired from DWTS and is moving on to a different (reality-based?) show, and Val and Sharna are both blabbing about the next season.
And as of last night, Karina is OUT. Hell, I had this post scheduled for tomorrow and here I am posting it today – ya’ll gotta have somewhere to be sad about Karina. (ETA: Vogue was at last night’s show and came away with different and new info re: Karina. Stay tuned.)
In Sharna’s case, I think her hint means she’s definitely IN – after last season I don’t think she would be coy if there were any doubt. And if there is doubt? Bad move, girl. As for Val – I don’t think there’s any way in hell he won’t be on, with Maks and Derek gone and Mark making noise. No way. And he’s saying yes, he is back. Read more..
Lois has written us another fabulous blog for us and this time, she tributes the Dancing With The Stars Troupe and how much it’s evolved. WELL DONE LOIS! Thanks so much. Read on, Everyone…
I became inspired to write this essay one night as I was watching DANCING WITH THE STARS. I usually watch some dances as a way to unwind from my day. I was thinking what a commanding presence The Troupe has become on the show. I decided to give them their due.
A TRIBUTE TO A TROUPE
A definition of a Dancing Troupe is simply a group of dancers dancing together. However, A TRIBUTE TO A TROUPE encompasses a far-reaching definition. The Troupe has evolved over the seasons into an integral, important, incredible group!
The Troupe first appeared in Season 12. They played a more back-up role in their first seasons. But, Read more..
Remember dance pro Sonny Fredie Pedersen from the troupe a couple of season’s ago? Well, here he is in a cool dance number he created called “Tous Les Memes”. Some of you might recognize the girl dancer too. It’s Nika Kljun from Derek and Julianne Hough’s Move Live On Tour (To the powers that be, please get these two on Dancing With The Stars). Just a little extra before the show tonight!
Hi all!! Decided to start a new post because the other one was getting cluttered and would be hard to read for anyone coming back for the first time in a while. Click to read the old post.
I was watching GMA at the beginning and they teased nothing – which means I have to wait until they go to the first commercial. Boo.
ETA: Vogue here! GMA just said the announcement was soon coming. Will Derek Hough be back, they ask? We will soon find out!!
ETA: I’m back! They just teased it again, not mentioning any single pro, but showing Cheryl and Drew.
ETA: They just showed their play room with all the screens with big question marks and asked “Maks? Derek? Who will be back and what will their role be??”
ETA4: Okay, there are four pros in studio. I’m guessing Cheryl and Mark. Not sure of the other two. And then they show a child photo of Karina – I take it as she’s IN. They showed Maks/Meryl, Derek’s Ameska Macy’s and Cheryl/Drew – clues.
ETA5: Latest tease shows Derek and Jennie Garth and says 8:22 is the time for the reveal. Ask again about Derek and Maks’ role. Asked if they would be going “head to head”. Um, yeah, Derek is super competitive. :::rolls eyes:::
ETA6: Cheryl is in Studio and competing. Tony is in studio. Karina also in studio, along with Val. Switch up is back. Results show the first two weeks. Len gone for part of season. There will be some “guest judges”. COMMERCIAL/Local News Break.
ETA7: Next…Mark Ballas. See below for the rest. Can’t say I’m happy Derek is back. No vacay for Heidi. 🙂 I was typing as I went and just realized no Sharna. Kinda devastated about that. Also, no Gleb in the pro lineup despite his wife’s tweet. He must be back in the troupe.
The starting positions below are based on the individual pro’s status last season. Troupe is still unknown. Read more..
