Laurie Hernandez Says Dancing With The Stars Is A Whole New Ball Game

Be sure to pick up the latest issue of “In Touch Weekly” Magazine if interested. Laurie Hernandez is one of their feature stories. Here is a take from what’s inside….

“The mirror-ball is right up there with a gold medal,” insists the 5-foot New Jersey native, dubbed “The Human Emoji” thanks to her big eyes and super-expressive face.

“I used to leave practice and go home and watch this show, so being here is a dream come true,” she says. “One of my motivations to go to the Olympics was, OK, maybe I can do DWTS afterward!”

Laurie adds that practicing for DWTS is a totally different ball game then preparing for the Olympics.

“Another thing is that with dancing I have a partner and I have to stay mindful that he’s a part of me, and that we’re doing this together.”

Val Chmerkovskiy Looking Forward To A New Reintroduction Of Everyone And More On DWTS Week 2

Val Chmerkovskiy and Laurie Hernandez blog about Week one of Dancing With The Stars at US Weekly. They chat about the disappointment of the protestors interrupting the show, but, they loved their first dance. They also chat about their “Duck Tails” dance and more.

VC: Starting out season 23, I though that it was a great cast and a great show. And the ratings spoke for themselves, people were excited to watch us. It’s very unfortunate that the moment everyone spoke about the next day had nothing to do with our show or the 13 celebrities that put themselves through three weeks of hard work to get to the premiere. All the excitement was overshadowed by a couple of idiots doing stupid things.

But I am looking forward to kind of a new reintroduction to everyone next Monday, to be honest, a do over where we won’t have distractions from everyone who put in a lot of time and effort. It wasn’t fair to everyone. Next week, we’ll have a different type of show – I know we will. Unless someone’s protesting DuckTales being animal cruelty, I think we’ll be OK! It’s going to be a really fun show and bring everything back to the essence of DWTS.

To be completely honest – because this is an honest blog – I really wasn’t inspired by the song Laurie and I danced to last week! It didn’t really speak to me, it wasn’t something that I loved. So it was kind of a great performance to showcase Laurie, but moving forward, we’re doing music and dancing — especially this week — in a genre that really speaks to me – cartoons! It’s TV theme week and we’re dancing to DuckTales which is the greatest cartoon ever! I’m really excited about that! It speaks to me way more than “American Girl.” It’s crazy that Laurie’s so young – I don’t even want to talk about that, it makes me feel old that she didn’t know DuckTales!

LH: Val loves that show, but I don’t know too much about it! Don’t forget, I’m a 2000 baby! I’ve looked it up on YouTube, and I see that it’s about ducks. Val says they’re three nephews …

VC: They have an Uncle Scrooge …

LH: They have an uncle! The three little ducks are super adventurous. As far as cartoons go, I watched a lot of Ed, Edd, n Eddy when I was a kid.

VC: I don’t even know what that is! But the DuckTales song goes perfectly with jive. Anyway, Laurie did amazing on her first week out, but every dance will have its own special challenge, and music-wise, it’ll have its own personality.

Laurie Hernandez Writes On DWTS Week 1, Her Dance, And More

Laurie Hernandez has written her first Dancing With The Stars blog at US Weekly. She writes of how busy her schedule has been since starting rehearsals with Val Chmerkovskiy. She explains how much she has always loved to dance. She also gives us a tiny sneak peek into what her Cha Cha will be like tonight.

My schedule has gotten really hectic ever since I started dancing. I haven’t begun my school year yet because I’m home schooled, but for instance, yesterday I had a morning dance rehearsal with Val, then I ate lunch, then I had an afternoon workout to rehearse for the Kellogg’s tour, and then I had a small break where I got to relax for about 10 minutes, and then I had to do an interview, and then I had a workout until about 10 p.m. And then it starts all over again today! It’s crazy. Some of my friends are like, “I never hear from you anymore!” and I’m like, “Guys, I don’t have time to be on my phone anymore!”

So Monday will be my first time dancing on live TV, and we’re dancing the Cha-Cha! I think we already have it all down. I’m so excited! I can’t say too much about it but I can tell you I’m wearing silver so that will be really cool! Dancing is different than gymnastics, but it’s a good different and it’s something that I’ve always wanted to try. I’m not too nervous, I’m more excited to just show everyone my personality out on the dance floor. All the support we have gotten from everyone is just awesome! We are excited that they like what they see — and we haven’t even started dancing yet! Wish us luck!
