A couple of months ago, Michael Wien posted a teaser of Val Chmerkovskiy playing the violin for his new upcoming EP called “Road to Elysium”. Now the song is finished and you can take a listen below. This is so beautiful. I love when Val plays the violin. Stay tuned. The new EP will be released soon.
Janel Parrish has written a new blog for People. She writes of last week’s dance and tough love in rehearsals with Val. She also talks on her new dance. Here is more…
We’re doing jazz this week for Movie Night and we’re performing to West Side Story. I’m having so much fun picking out costumes. We have an amazing costume designer. They create everything from scratch and it’s just been a dream. I’m the biggest girly-girl. Any time I see something with sparkles on it, I’m so excited.
I’m really looking forward to this week’s performance. Jazz is really the only dance I have a tiny bit of experience in and I remember really loving it. It’s such a fun dance. And I love Broadway; it’s where I got my start. So this week is going to be a blast for me!

This week we’re doing the foxtrot. The dance itself is beautiful and we kind of made it a fun, young foxtrot. We made it very modern, so it’s going to be really cute.
I think the foxtrot is actually harder than the jive, because when we learned the jive we had three weeks to prepare, and now we have four days. I’m trying to learn the choreography as well as learning how to do the foxtrot, and I think that’s been the most difficult part for me. I have to be very put-together, very glamorous, very mature and elegant, so it’s completely different from last week’s jive.
The song this week is a very modern song, but we’re taking it back to masquerade times. When you hear the song, it kind of has a feel of a masquerade ball, so we’re bringing a bit of older glam to a fun, young, contemporary song. I think the mixture of the two is really beautiful!

Happy Weekend All! For starters, don’t miss hitting up the Daily Mail. They have photos of some of the celebs and pros arriving to rehearsals yesterday (Friday). They look in fine form and in good spirits.

I can’t figure out how to embed these videos (and I’m having issues playing them too), but, if you go Bing at this link, you can listen to Len Goodman talking about Julianne Hough joining the judging team. You can also listen to Witney Carson and Emma Slater talking about what it’s like to be back dancing this season here.
In other things, you can watch Val Chmerkovskiy playing basketball at the Daily Mail.
Also, Kristyn Burtt interviewed Erin Andrews about Dancing With The Stars. Below is her reaction on hearing about the Antonio Sabato Jr. rumor.
Right off the bat she asked, “What’s leaking? What’s going on? Of course, I am interested!”
She was thrilled when the name Antonio Sabato Jr. was mentioned to her. Andrews responded, “I’ve got to tell you I was a big, big General Hospital fan growing up. So I am not upset seeing that one.”
The TV personality also thought his shirt should come off early in the season. Andrews joked, “Oh week one, go week one. Let’s go!”
Lots more at She Knows. Can season 19 not come soon enough?
