DWTS 12 End of Season Award Winners – Which Musical Guest Was the Best?

John: Seriously. How do you decide on this one?

Vogue: I have to say this was kind of lackluster Season for entertainment in my opinion. I was hoping for Katy Perry, Rihanna, or Lady Gaga. But, from the choices, I picked New Kids On The Block/Backstreet Boys. I so loved the boy bands and it was great seeing them again. I loved Hanson too!

Courtney: This category drives me absolutely NUTS because there’s so damn many musical acts each season, and a ridiculous number of write-in votes.  People, please – Josh Groban’s name is spelled like that, and there are no alternative spellings.  And whoever wrote in “Hanson FTW” – you irk me. :-) Echoing John’s sentiments, I’m a little perplexed as to how Adele managed to win this one.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Adele, but she only sang one song (with laryngitis) and was forced to bow out of the second one due to aforementioned laryngitis.  It was an ok performance – but not her best.  But alas, Adele is popular with our readers – laryngitis or not! I’m with Vogue on this one…I’m such a boy band fangirl, and I’m ridiculously excited to see NKOTBSB here in Indy later this month ;-) I actually thought they put on the best “show” of all the musical acts – you could tell they had put some thought into their performance, and hadn’t just flown in at the last minute and been like “Ok, we’re here, give us some dancers and we’ll do a quick run-through.” Hanson was a nice addition to the performance show – definitely better lead-in music than Harold Wheeler’s many variations on the DWTS theme.  I really enjoyed Michael & Delta as well – wish I could say the same for the Black Eyed Peas.  But you guys already know how I feel about them – let’s just say I found a very apt comment from someone on Twitter that likened them to a venereal disease. ;-) Jennifer & Toby seemed a little unenthusiastic to me, and I thought Chris Brown did ok given the firestorm surrounding his performance.  Rounding out the dreaded write-in category: Josh/Johs/Joe Groban/Grobin/Grodin/etc. (8), David Garrett (3), Katherine Jenkins (1), Pitbull/Neyo/Nayer (1), Selena Gomez (1), Pia Toscano *snicker* (1), and “they all sucked” (1).  One performance I kinda wish someone had mentioned – James Blunt.  I thought his performance with Val & Daria dancing was one of the most entertaining for me, and seriously – that guy has come a long way since his first album, when he was a total Debbie Downer.  Did he get some action or something? The dude has rainbows coming out of his ass these days! :-)

Marianya: Courtney, Vogue… I guess I’m jumping on that fangirly boyband bandwagon. The most memorable musical act for me was NKOTBSB hands down. I mean it seems like it was prepared and created for the DWTS stage as opposed to just something tossed together or taken from a past tour act, that I likey, I likey a lot.

Heidi: I was inordinately fond of that one Hanson boy’s suspenders. :-)  I don’t know WHY I like such things or why I get fascinated by them. :-) In any case, I found Hanson’s presence on that one performance show lent the show a new and different feel from usual. Now, I think I generally HATE theme nights on principle, but I liked their inclusion and I loved some of the songs they played. I dunno, it was new and different in a way that I liked for a change. :-)

DWTS 12, Week 5 – Dancing With The Stars “Yankee Doodle Dandy” Entertainment

As most of you know from our earlier postings, comments, and the announcement on the show last week, this week is Patriot Week. To go along with the theme, the Orlando Sentinel is reporting Toby Keith will be performing in the Results show Tuesday night. The “Macy’s Stars of Dance” will also be performing again. More details below.

“Dancing With the Stars” will put a “Yankee Doodle Dandy” spin on its shows next week. The show went classical this week, and American Week is coming Monday.

The ABC dance contest will have the eight remaining couples perform to classic American-themed songs at 8 p.m. Monday on WFTV-Channel 9.

Toby Keith will play the results show at 9 p.m. Tuesday. He will sing “American Soldier” to salute U.S. troops overseas, and he also will perform “Should’ve Been a Cowboy.” Jamal Sims will choreograph the “Macy’s Stars of Dance” number.

Since I’m not a big “Country” muisc fan, I’m not sure I will like the theme this week? But, I’ve thought that about other themes on Dancing With The Stars and then I ended up liking them. We’ll see? Here’s to this week’s show everyone. Bring them on. :D

DWTS12 – Chris Brown and Toby Keith To Perform On Dancing With The Stars

Extra is reporting Chris Brown is to perform on Dancing With The Stars next Tuesday, March 29. However, there was talk ABC might cancel his appearance after an outburst on Good Morning America yesterday.

While promoting his new album “F.A.M.E.” on “GMA,” the singer seemed calm when answering anchor Robin Roberts’ questions about his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, but afterwards, apparently lost it, ripping off his shirt, picking up a chair and allegedly smashing a window.

8O Ok, I would definitely say he still has some issues. Be sure to take our new Poll below (Thanks Sasa) for what you think will or should happen.

Toby Keith is also slated to perform on the show according to his Twitter page and Taste of Country.

Toby Keith took to his official Twitter page today and posted this message: “Just back from spring break w/ family & heard I’m SINGING ON DWTS.” Even though it sounds like this was sprung upon Keith very suddenly, we are definitely excited to see what he has in store for his performance.

No official word has been released on when Keith will perform, but since the news is coming straight from Keith himself, it sounds like a sure thing. Hmm … we wonder if his daughter Krystal will join him when he hits the ‘DWTS’ stage!
