The Dancing With The Stars official You Tube is starting to release videos from the celebs for Week 4. Be watching this link for more in case we get busy and can’t add more.
This week is going to be amazing. Good luck to all the couples!
I’m a little bummed out after this past Monday’s show and Tuesday’s result show, if I’m being honest. I’m not sure where that feeling is coming from. It just felt so freakin’ manipulated and REALITY Show-y if that makes any sense. From the stealth cameras recording every move of every contestant, to the attempts to elevate some couples at other couples’ expense – it’s all just tiring. Let these people dance and have a good time (and let us have a good time) and judge the actual dancing for god’s sake.
And now, this week, we have a brand new theme week tailor made for their designated winner of the season. Cirque week. Maybe it’ll turn into Shark week yet again. Joy. Anyway, according to Maks’ blog, they are tangoing to Zumanity and he doesn’t seem entirely pleased about it. I kinda feel his pain. Yer kinda screwed no matter which way you go.
ETA: Just Jared Jr has posted the Cirque du Soleil shows for each couple. They’ve also given dance information for the Results Show on Tuesday. More below…
On the results show on Tuesday (October 4), DNCE will perform their new single, “Body Moves,” and there will be an all-male dance number in which the male pros of “Dancing with the Stars” perform to the song “Ain’t No Sunshine.” In addition, Derek will choreograph and dance to a special number.
At the end of the night, the third elimination of the season, based on combined viewer and judges’ scores from October 3, will take place.
Marilu and Derek – Paso Doble (Song: Battlefield – KÀ)
James and Sharna -Quickstep (Song: ___ – PARAMOUR)

I can’t get enough of some of these shots of the Pro Numbers on Dancing With The Stars last night. Beautiful!! *still thanking TPTB for bringing the pro numbers back and adding more meat to this show!!
Wow! Once again, I was loving the Pro Numbers tonight. I so cherish these results shows.

This was written during and after the first (HISTORIC) Presidential Debate. You’ve been warned. 🙂
I have a sniffing, loud guy in my ear, so I’m having a hard time concentrating, but how on earth is Terra two points ahead of Marilu?? This is a mystery to me. I think Marilu had a balance problem right at the beginning of her dance (she’s 64, after all), but that was a good dance. Then again, how did Laurie get a full three points more than her, lift and all?? And is that the first time Val’s ever actually been called on a lift? He’s done them before but I don’t remember him getting so nailed on it.
Anyway, I think Terra (and Laurie) did do a good job, I just don’t get the scoring two weeks in a row that insulates her. I’m afraid that once the people they want to leave, actually leave the scoring may change and that is fair to no one. It’s whiplash inducing for people who don’t know just how manipulated this show really is. Read more..
ETA: Here is Extra with the couples…
Also, there is a new interview at ET with Artem and Maureen. I’m having trouble getting it to play.
Awww, I can’t get enough of these pictures. Be sure to click on them to see even more. So, who had the best costumes last night? I loved them all but Maks and Amber’s.
What a fun night for Dancing With The Stars Season 23 Week 3. Short, but, fun. I’m looking forward to a longer show tonight. So, let’s review the scores again. I think I agree with these standings with an exception to Gleb and Jana. There scores should have been higher. I think James and Sharna deserved high scores as well.
Calvin Johnson Jr. and Lindsay Arnold (Viennese Waltz): 8-8-8-8 TOTAL: 32 (SAFE FROM ELIMINATION)

Now onto some media, interviews, bumpers from Al, and some red room coverage….
Glamour talked with a few of the couples. Be sure to read the link for more.
But back to the dancing, shall we? “I didn’t adapt too well to cha-cha,” revealed James. “I’m perfectly OK with making mistakes or not grasping something, but I’m not OK with not knowing why. We really went through a couple rough days trying to get to the bottom of what was holding me back. It was a disaster at camera-blocking and completely went off the rails again. Then, in between dress rehearsal and the live show, Sharna made a couple changes and made me feel way better about it. When we did it for the live show, it was the best run I had. To have it happen when immunity was on the line was not bad.”
Laurie Hernandez was literally bouncing around backstage, thrilled to have been granted immunity this week. Still, there was one part of the show she didn’t like: The lack of the judges commentary. “I don’t know what to fix for the next time,” said the fan favorite.
Laurie and partner Val Chmerkovskiy wound up one point behind first place finishers Calvin Johnson and Lindsay Arnold, and at this point in the competition, doesn’t count anyone out. “Everyone is competition [for me] on the show. I need to work extra hard to keep my spot, but so is everyone else.” Still, “every week exceeds my expectations,” said the longtime DWTS fan. “It’s incredible.”
Well that was possibly the most breakneck speed episode of DWTS we’ve ever witnessed – trying to watch, tweet, and take notes proved to be pretty difficult when they were moving as quickly as they were, so if these are a tad late, I apologize…I may have had to rewind and rewatch.
As much of a cluster as we predicted the face-off dances to be, on the whole I wasn’t too disappointed – my expectations were set pretty low, and tonight’s show maybe slightly exceeded them. With the exception of a select few dances, technique seemed to be sacrificed in favor of showmanship across the board, and I really only saw 3 couples who seemed like they were 100% in-the-zone when performing…the rest seemed to eke by with varying degrees of bewilderment. It is what it is – when you’ve gotta cram 12 dances into 1 hour, you’re bound to make sacrifices somewhere. I will say that I really enjoyed not hearing as much meaningless blathering from the judges 😀
Just to recap how voting/eliminations work this week – those who won their dance-offs are safe from elimination tomorrow; those who lost are at risk of getting eliminated. So the rankings should really only be 6 couples this week – but I do want to at least touch on the ones who won their dance-offs, so I’m gonna do things a bit differently tonight. First set of rankings is for those who are actually eligible to be eliminated – with the #6 position being the one I think is most likely to get the boot. The second set is just a ranking of how well the winners did. Also threw in a general ranking of the face-offs and how well/not well I think they worked out. Read more..
