I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Taylor Swift and Rod Stewart on Dancing with the Stars

I must admit that I got a little distracted tonight with all the election results. Although, I did tune in a little extra to see my girl Taylor Swift do her thing. Rod Stewart on the other hand…well, I’ll just not comment.

I can’t imagine people don’t know these songs, but here they are just in case. Plus, it’s nice for us to be comprehensive in our list of DWTS music.

Taylor Swift sang “Mine” Mine - Speak Now with Dmitry Chaplin, Tony Dovolani, Chelsie Hightower, and Lacey Schwimmer dancing and “White Horse” White Horse - Fearless (Platinum Edition) to a DWTS video montage.

Rod Stewart sang “I Get a Kick out of You” I Get a Kick Out of You - Fly Me to the Moon... - The Great American Songbook, Vol. V (Deluxe Version) with Peta Murgatroyd and Damian Whitewood performing.

Of course, there was also “Step In Time” Step In Time - Disney On Broadway Essentials - Celebrating 15 Years of Magical Musicals performed by the cast of Mary Poppins. I’m sorry, but I pity anyone who has to try to perform in the place of Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. Just impossible! I would probably see the Broadway show if I got the chance though.

Now back to Taylor Swift. Here’s the video of her performance of “Mine” Mine - Speak Now on Dancing with the Stars 2010.

And Taylor Swift’s performance of “White Horse” White Horse - Fearless (Platinum Edition) on Dancing with the Stars Season 11:

Week 6, DWTS Season 9 – More Media

This isn’t directly related to Week 6 of DWTS, but certainly worth mentioning – Maks is going back to Broadway and he’s taking Kym Johnson with him!! Congratulations to both. Excerpts from the New York Post:

After “Dancing With the Stars” finishes its season next month, it looks like Maks and Kym are going to dance on Broadway.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kym Johnson, two of the best-known professional dancers on “Dancing,” are joining the cast of the hit ballroom-dance show “Burn the Floor” starting right after Thanksgiving.

They’ll perform until mid-January, a rep for the show confirmed yesterday.

Both dancers are under contract to “Dancing” until the finale, set for Nov. 24. After that, they are set to fly to New York and start on Broadway three days later.

Maybe it’s just me, but I find these “Caught in the Act” mentions in People Magazine (Oct. 29) highly amusing. ;-) Derek and Maks, out on the town – what a vision.

Another night, another Dancing with the Stars get-together at Teddy’s inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel! Karina Smirnoff met up with a tall guy in the front and sat down at his table where the two held hands and then started making out after a few drinks. In the back of the lounge, her ex, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, hung out with Derek Hough and his sisterJulianne and avoided any encounter with Smirnoff, who seemed smitten with her new guy. Chmerkovskiy and Hough were acting like their usual playboy-selves, chatting up female clubgoers and dancing.

Joanna’s Playboy Magazine Cover is out and it looks AMAZING!! Gorgeous!!

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Season 9, Week 6 Results Show

Dang, I’m putting my favorite thing first. Our pros dancing to Taylor Swift’s Romeo and Juliet song (yeah, I know that’s not the real name) – dang. DANG!! That was one of the more romantic dances I’ve seen on this show. I love Taylor and I’ve loved this song (ear worm for real) since I first heard it – but she was having an off night and I was wondering if she caught Derek’s swine flu. I can’t rave enough for Cheryl, Tony, Maks, Edyta, Jonathan and Anna. Particularly Jonathan and Anna – they look absolutely gorgeous together. It’s funny – put Jonathan out there by himself and he looks the total dork…but put Anna next to him and they are simply sublime. Lordy. This pro dance made me a bit teary eyed – I am such a sap. But the costumes, the choreography – gads. Perfect. LOVED IT!!!!

I just love these little segments – yes, I am easily entertained sometimes. :-) Call me crazy, but I am rooting for the sequined speedo. :-) But then, I’ve had a glass of wine and my filter is gone. Seriously, the words “Derek” and “half naked” are words I can get behind. For that matter, I wish Mark and Melissa weren’t eliminated, because I can so see Mark in high heels. ;-) And I fear for Louis – Kelly has an evil streak that I love.

Tiempo Libre – Never heard of them, but I enjoyed them!!

Taylor Swifts new song – not as good as that Romeo and Juliette song, but not bad. Who are these dancers? The girl reminds me of Janene from SYTYCD.

More tomorrow – must go to bed!!
