Wanya Morris Writes On His Experience On Dancing With The Stars, Encourages Everyone To Step Out Of Their Comfort Zone

The things that scare us, or we find most difficult, are what make us stronger and better people. ~Wanya Norris

Usually we don’t post on the celebrities after a season is over on Dancing With The Stars, but, we couldn’t help posting on Wanya Morris. He wrote a new blog for the Las Vegas Review Journal on his time and experience on Dancing With The Stars. He’s so thankful he danced. Read on to see why and how he encourages everyone to step out of their comfort zone and more.

I worked hard to perfect the final two routines. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but if it was going to be my last night, I wanted to make sure that it was my best performance yet for the fans. My final performances were memorable ones, and when all three judges held up 10’s, I was elated.

Although I didn’t make it to the finals, I wouldn’t have changed a thing! Not only did I try my best and worked as hard as I ever had, I also did something new, faced the challenge and got so much out of it.

The things that scare us, or we find most difficult, are what make us stronger and better people. I was out of shape and one of the older contestants, but my drive allowed me to persevere.

I now have some unbelievable friends and a new passion that I am continuing. I encourage all of you to step out of your comfort zone and do something you aren’t sure you can achieve. It could be one of the greatest experiences of your life.

For all the fans who have supported me over the years and voted every Monday night, I want to thank you. I appreciate every single one of you.

Coming up on Thursday, July 14th, is the nominations for the 2016 Emmy Awards. Question: Which dances or performances from Dancing With The Stars do you think should be nominated? Keep in mind that ALL of Dancing With The Stars Season 21 and Season 22 are eligible for an Emmy Award (May 2nd was the deadline, but, we think there are exceptions to the rule for shows and performances that take place until May 31st).

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, THE FINALE NIGHT TWO – Live Blog!! (Spoilers)

I’m back, I’ve watched the show… And what in the hell was Val thinking?   It started out OK and then it turned into a bad parody of Derek’s fox trot with Nicole that happened in like week three or four combined with the dumbed down version of his Singin’ in the Rain with Bethany. Good lord.  What happened to the good old days when bad freestyles actually got like 8s?? Cuz that was bad…and everyone was pretending it was great. How annoying can you get? Read more..

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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, THE FINALE – Live Blog!! (Spoilers)

I am on the road and hopefully will be in my hotel room in time to watch the show…if not, Courtney will hopefully jump in. I can’t decide if me missing the show would be a good thing…or a bad thing. 🙂

T-minus 30 minutes…

I found out I can’t watch live, so Courtney will be at the helm this evening. Before I go, here’s the dance order per George Pennachio:

  1. Ginger
  2. Nyle
  3. Paige

Court reporting for duty 🙂 I’m currently trying to tweet, take notes for the power rankings, update this post, and make a gender reveal cake for a coworker.  Needless to say, I’m getting pretty adept at spreading myself too thin these days…thank god the show is only an hour tonight!

Erin looks kinda matronly in that dress tonight.  Really ages her.  I’m just kinda over Ginger, so none of this package is really resonating with me.

WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST WATCH???!!! What a bizarre, uninspired, un-cohesive mess.  It was like they did a half-assed freestyle (that was really just cherry-picked props and moves from other routines this season) and then decided to call it a contemporary.  And the judges are seriously gonna gush about how great it was?! Good god, I’m not sure I want to see what else is coming…

Pleasantly surprised that Carrie Ann & Bruno gave it 9’s (although I think that was even kind) while Len falls in line with the narrative and gives it a 10.  And I’ve already heard enough  about Ginger’s back spasms to last a lifetime.

Errrr…that was a pretty rough quickstep from Nyle.  Felt like he never got 100% on top of the beat, and was bouncing out of sync with Peta.  I really wish she had given him a better growth arc over the course of the season.

Paige just schooled both Ginger & Nyle on how to do a redemption dance. Mark also showed Peta & Val what a good choreographer can do.

Len’s critique is utter bullshit. Guess we know who he’s been instructed to prop up…*cough*GINGER*cough*…but 29/30 is still good.

Val, I’mma give you a piece of advice, free of charge: if you yourself do not know how to tap dance with any level of proficiency, DO NOT CHOREOGRAPH A FREESTYLE THAT HAS ANY LENGTH OF TAP DANCING IN IT!!!! That was almost comically bad to watch – Val flailing around doing a tap dance pantomime. The rest was pretty white bread, nothing remarkable. But it’ll prolly get a 30…

…and it does.  I guess the best we can hope for at this point is all 3 freestyles getting a perfect 30, and the judges tossing it to the audience. If they undeservingly shaft Paige, though, I’m guessing they’re reeeeallllly pushing hard for Ginger to win.

Not 100% sure how I felt about Nyle’s freestyle. He danced it well, but I feel like it’s just yet another angsty routine we’ve seen from him. Wish we could have seen something more fun, upbeat, and celebratory.

“Best dance on the show ever”, Carrie Ann? Bitch PLEASE. Go smoke some more crack.

Paige, PLEASE knock this outta the park…

…and she does 🙂 Just lovely.  Anyone else get the impression that we may have just witnessed Mark’s last freestyle on DWTS, though? I have never seen him get so emotional.

And now I’m stepping away for a bit, kids – look for the power rankings in a bit.  Also got a cake to finish.  Aaaaack.
