Check out Tristan MacManus. He and his ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ partner, Jenny Gibney blew the audience away this weekend in the UK! TPTB should have never let Tristan get away. Thanks to Vin for sending.
Ryan Tubridy on 2fm talked with pro Tristan MacManus about his new dancing gig on Strictly Come Dancing. Tristan tells him he “was delighted when the opportunity came up” and that it’s “been a long time coming”. He’s been trying to find a reason to come home. He also talks of his new wife and lots more. Check it out at 2fm . It’s so good to hear him and his accent again!!
Much much love and luck to Tristan!
Well, Tristan MacManus fans might not be able to see him dance on Dancing With The Stars this Fall, but, you might be able to see him dance on “Strictly Come Dancing” in the UK. Just remember this news comes from the Mirror who is NOT an official authority. They are also reporting pro Artem Chigvintsev has left Strictly Come Dancing to stay in the US. To read more rumors on Strictly Come Dancing, see the link.
Dancer Artem Chigvintsev, 31, who was partnered with soap star Natalie Gumede last year, will also not be returning after deciding to stay in the US after appearing in the American version of the show.
Anya Garnis, 32, will also not return to dance with a celebrity, but will remain part of the choreography team.
Two new faces, Tristan MacManus and Joanne Clifton, will step into their dancing shoes.
Interesting. I’m just thankful Tristan will dance on a dance show. If this is true, I plan to follow “Strictly Come Dancing” online in my free time.
Thanks to Jaycee for the heads up!
Pure Exclusive: Sharna Burgess Talks On 2014 Version Of DWTS, BWAT With Gleb Savchenko, And Lots More
What a joy it was to interview our beautiful Miss Sharna again!! After seeing her and Gleb Savchenko in “Ballroom With A Twist” in Cheyenne, Wyoming, I had so many questions. What’s fun is…she and Gleb put an amazing, show-stopping dance number to “Fever” together only several hours before the show. Let’s hope they will perform it again on Dancing With The Stars as it literally took my breath away and I know it would take yours away as well.
Also, Sharna catches up on all of her projects that happened in the off season of Dancing With The Stars! She and her boyfriend and dancer Paul Kirkland spent Christmas together and they also helped to choreograph two dances for “Strictly Come Dancing”. Not only that, but, they also put a dance piece together for a sports charity called “Sports Relief” with 4 incredible paralympians. Sharna also recently danced in Holland America’s Dancing With The Stars At Sea Cruise. She sent us some incredible photos and pictures highlighting everything as you will soon see.
Lastly, Sharna also gives some thoughts on the new season of Dancing With The Stars and how it will be the “2014 Version”. We think you might find her thoughts interesting.
So, without further ado, below is Sharna Burgess! We thank her so much for her time again and let’s hope we see her and Gleb on the new season of Dancing With The Stars.xxx
It is so great to visit with you again, Sharna. And first, omg,…can I just say, you and Gleb took my breath away at the Cheyenne, WY Ballroom With A Twist Shows Feb. 1st! So, what did you think of Cheyenne and the Rocky Mountains? Did you like the SNOW? I hope you will come back to the Rocky Mountain region again one day again.
Hi Vogue!!! Thank you so much for your beautiful review AND amazing photos!! that certainly means a lot to both Gleb and I. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see very much of Cheyenne, I flew in late the night before the show and super early the morning after, but I have to say that I loved the snow. Being Australian I have never really seen snow all that often, and what little snow we do have in Australia is really icy and hard, being in Cheyenne I truly understood what people mean when they say powder!! Its just so beautiful and fun to play in!! Of course we know mother nature can sometimes be cruel turn that beautiful snow into a menace, and my heart goes out to all of you who have been suffering with blizzards and painfully cold weather this season. I am truly grateful for every single person in the audience that braved the cold to come out and see us perform, Cheyenne was such an AMAZING audience and I had so much fun up on that stage! I feel like everyone’s troubles got left at the door and we all just had a wonderful evening. Its an honor for me to know that I was a part of that. I also hope that I make it back there again soon
What kind of rehearsal process did you go through in getting ready for Ballroom With A Twist? I thought you and Gleb were only doing 2 dances. So, I was so happy and pleasantly surprised when you did more! They were just breathtaking as well as your costumes. You and Gleb were in an element of your own. I have to say (and I’ve heard this from other fans at PureDWTS too) that you two make one of the most beautiful pro pairings on the show. It’s true. There is a magnetism and chemistry there. Plus, you are both so funny too with the way you would tease one another.
Oh thank you!!! I absolutely love dancing with Gleb, not only is he the sweetest most humble guy on the planet, he is a fantastic partner and Read more..
We’ve seen this rumor before in November and now we’re seeing it again. Below is more from the Daily Mail and the Mirror today about Kelly Brook meeting with the producers of Dancing With The Stars to dance next season. Keep in mind the Daily Mail and the Mirror have been known to make up their own stories and sensationalize while you read this. I really do hope this is true though. She’d be great and it doesn’t bother me that she danced before on Strictly Come Dancing. Let us know what you think….
Kelly Brook’s dream of international fame may well be realized following a successful meeting with producers of Dancing With The Stars.
The 34-year-old model and actress is said to be primed for an appearance on the long-running celebrity talent show after impressing bosses during a recent trip to Los Angeles.
It’s understood that Kelly was giving a glowing recommendation from Dancing With The Stars regular Derek Hough – the former boyfriend of Cheryl Cole – prompting curious producers to offer her an exclusive front-row seat at a recording of the hit show.
A source told The Mirror: ‘They love British stars on the show, and Kelly is exactly what it needs – she’s down to earth, she’s going to look amazing in all those ballroom outfits and she’s not afraid of putting in the work.’
The British star is already familiar with the ballroom floor having participated in British variant Strictly Come Dancing in 2007.
Partnered with Kiwi Brendan Cole – a Latin American dance specialist – Kelly won glowing praise from the judging panel, but her participation in the show abruptly ended in week nine after father Kenneth Parsons lost his battle with cancer.
‘Kelly is gorgeous and has great dancing ability,’ the source added. ‘No celebrity has ever appeared on two versions of the show but they are considering breaking the rules for her.’
MailOnline have contacted Kelly’s representatives for further comment.
In a new Strictly Come Dancing interview with Telly Mix, Bruno Tonioli talks of how hard it must be for a celebrity to take on the dance floor. It’s also something he’d never do. He points out how he’s done his time since it’s been 40 years he’s been in the industry. Incredible, isn’t it? Good read and note below how Bruno would like to see David Beckham or Kate Moss dance. Good idea. They would be really cool gets….on either on “Strictly Come Dancing” or “Dancing With The Stars”. What do you think?
“For years I’ve asked for David Beckham. he would be so good, old Goldenballs!
“I’ve even suggested that the BBC send him some special golden dancing shoes to tempt him.”
Bruno added: “He looks good in a suit, so he’d be great.. or Kate Moss!”
Meanwhile, the spicy Italian panelist explained he doesn’t envy the position of the stars who take to the dancefloor, saying he wouldn’t like to compete in the show himself.
The 58-year-old said: “I would never do it, I know what hard work it is!
“Next September will be my 40th year in the industry. I think I’ve done my bit.”

Sharna Burgess has been busy! Right after the season of Dancing With The Stars wrapped up, she and boyfriend and dancer Paul Kirkland flew to London to do some choreography for “Strictly Come Dancing” (the English version of Dancing With The Stars). Below are some fun examples of their recent work! Pic above courtesy of pro Iveta Lukosiute.
The New York Daily is featuring a fun article about Dancing With The Stars judge Bruno Tonioli. He chats about what works the best for him when it comes to “judging” two hit dancing shows. He also mentions how “the key to beating rival shows like “The Voice” is for he and his fellow judges to get better at their jobs as the series heads to its finale each year.” More in this take…
“When they review that and they go again, the next take they do is actually worse, because instead of just being themselves, they begin to self-analyze,” he said. “They’re looking for the killer shot, and it doesn’t work. They lose the magic.
“If something goes wrong on my show, I want someone to tell me, but I don’t like watching myself,” said Tonioli. “The first take is always the most natural.”
The 57-year-old Italian believes the key to beating rival shows like “The Voice” is for he and his fellow judges to get better at their jobs as the series heads to its finale each year.
“If something goes wrong on my show, I want someone to tell me, but I don’t like watching myself.”
Tonioli also serves as a judge on the U.K. version of the reality competition, “Strictly Come Dancing,” and spends a great deal of time flying between Los Angeles and London.
“It is crazy I do the show here on Monday and then the U.K. on Saturday. It is hectic, but I am blessed to be working. From September to December, with all this traveling it is like an Olympic event.”
I think Bruno is my favorite judge. Who is your favorite judge? To read the full article, see New York Daily.
We don’t normally post new Dancing With The Stars promos from other countries, but, this just can’t be helped. Check out this new pro teaser for Strictly Come Dancing in the UK! Can we only hope TPTB are working on something as magnificent for the US (and I hope and bet they are if it’s anything like last season’s promos)?? Time will soon tell. Thanks loads to Carlos for the heads up on this gem and the fun wake up call!! Hope you enjoy!
Looks like the off season and summer time has been good to Bruno Tonioli!! Wednesday night, the Dancing With The Stars judge was all smiles and darkly tanned as he attended press night for the musical “WAG” at London’s Charing Cross Theatre. Bruno can be seen arm and arm with Sinitta and former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips in some new photos at the event. If interested, you can view them at the Daily Express and The Metro. Getty Images also has some photos.
