And here we go again, folks. What kind of crazy are we going to get this season? Will Rob Wade pull so much Survivor meets The Bachelor BS that he totally ruins this show forever, or will he try to remember it’s actually a Ballroom dance show, with great dancing and sparkly dresses?? Will he hide cameras in the men’s room to try to get stealth cam of the worst kind? Or will he simply spy on showmancers?? Or create showmances where there aren’t any??
Of course, my preference has always been for a sparkly, fun show with lots of great dancing. The cynical me says we’re going to continue to go farther away from this with each passing season.
T-minus 15 minutes…
That opening was pretty freakin’ COOL, despite being way to Val pimpage at the beginning. They balanced it out with the Emmy winning pro making the transition from street to Stage.
OMG…I LOVE VICTOR. So CUTE!! Not a lot of rhythm, but oh so charming. I think Julianne just squealed.
But we already have two troupers, a muppet on camera and a swear word by Bruno. Off to an interesting start!
I see how we’re going to work, judges. But really, I like it. No one should be getting 9s.
It just wouldn’t be DWTS without a dance where Val choreographs a walk down the stairs and the pimpage isn’t rampant. Oh, and of course they gave him the great dancer. Yes, I’m going to KEEP saying this until people pay attention. It’s not Derek who gets pimped.
I see Keo choreographed himself some nice dancing. But for Chaka,, not so much.
So do I understand that we’ve gone from having no elimination until week 3 to having a double elimination next week? Jesus, people, get it together. You’ve been producing this show for more than 10 years now. You’re trying to hard to be different that you’re royally screwing up. Keep it simple, stupid.
Hayes is oddly charming…I kinda like him! He’s a cute little boy. WAY too much troupe usage. I have a feeling that the troupe usage is Mandy Moore’s influence. Hate it. Hope Derek doesn’t go there.
Yeah, all ya’ll saying “poor Emma”?? Yeah.
Andy was pretty good…but I think the real test with him will be next week. As it is with all of them. But I don’t see him as the fabulous get that everyone was upset about early on.
These dances are ridiculously short.
Paula did pretty well. Better than I expect.
I like Carlos and Alexa. Carlos did pretty good, but he had a few shaky spots. The “Married couple” thing could get a little old after a while.
Wow…they were kind to Alexa. She messed up a whole section and it was really obvious. I’m sure it was just nerves. Making her go right after her hubby killed it probably didn’t help.
Come on, Erin. You’re salivating for a fight.
Scores were fair, I think.
Geez, why does Tony always choreograph so delicately for his partners?? That was so low energy and so…slow and delicate.
Holy crap. I thought Bindi might be good, but CRAP! That was amazing. Watch out, Alexa and Carlos.
Oh my lord…I love Gary. Hehehehehe….my eye is spinning.
Alek is just darling and that was a really good (too short) dance. One of the best of the night?? Don’t know about that, but it was very far from the worst of the night.
Nick is hot. That is all.
Nick was as expected – awesome. I still think he’s the (ringer) winner….but there are several people who are NOT going to make it easy for him. At all. Great choreo by Sharna.
