I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

DWTS Season 19, Week 6: Dancing by the Numbers!

Well, this week is interesting. And hard. Why? Well, Michael got a 30. That makes several things uncertain. Is he the weakest dancer left? That’s debatable. Honestly, I don’t think either Tommy or Antonio is that much better than him, although Tommy is equally charming in my book.  This puts Antonio at a disadvantage – it all hinges on his fanbase.

But then…some of you remember my analysis of “Jeopardy” I’m sure. Basically, if I remember correctly, about half the time, Jeopardy is actually an indication of who will be going home soon, but ONLY for the person last to be called safe. Usually two weeks after being put in jeopardy and being last to be called safe. This is NOT as true if you are in the semi-final.  Anyway, Antonio hasn’t even been in jeopardy, has he? And he’s definitely never been last to be called safe. The other thing that was obvious from that analysis was that it’s hard to tell what their pattern is until the season is over.  But, Jonathan was last to be called safe two weeks before he left.  Betsey was in the bottom two and was eliminated in week 4. Michael has been last to be called safe a few times now.  And Janel was last to be called safe this past week. Maybe it means something, maybe it doesn’t. More likely it does for Michael in the near term.

Anyway, let’s take a look at the scores and the percentages. 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. :-)

DWTS19 Rehearsal Interview With Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson And More

Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson talk with Access Hollywood about their injuries new and Halloween week. See this interview below and then scroll below for more.

You can also watch another interview at Home And Family. Thanks to Lynn for the heads up on this interview. As Lynn wrote to us, note how Alfonso casually mentions that the judges know what to expect out of the dancers because they watch some of the rehearsals.

Dancing with the Stars Season 19, Week 7 – Who’s Dancing What….and When? (Song Spoilers)

Ah, Halloween. Either great or a trainwreck – don’t think there will be too much middle ground. Will be nice to see Janel to a slow dance. Alfonso too, for that matter. Very curious to see how Sadie will handle the serious Paso Doble. Lea and her posture problems combined with an Argentine Tango? Could be interesting.

ETA: For those of you who didn’t read the press release – both Ella Henderson & Nikki Yanofsky will be performing their songs live on Monday night.

ETA2: I love me some Tommy, but isn’t that song kinda slow for a quickstep?? Okay, to answer my own question, I just listed to the version they’re dancing to and it should be okay.
