Bumpers….

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.

HQ Photos Of Dancing With The Stars Season 22 Week 7 Dancers And Cast

Below are some beautiful photos of the cast last night from Dancing With The Stars courtesy of Getty. Who had your favorite costumes? That would Sharna and Antonio for me! Antonio’s suit made me think of Prince (*sigh 🙁 ) and I loved Sharna’s dress and long red hair. I loved Mark and Paige’s fire red costumes too. Nyle and Peta made me think of Angels. Huge kudos to the make-up, hair, and costume departments again! Click on any of the photos to see more.

PureDWTS Season 22 Week 7 Scores, Media, And Interviews After Dance Night

What another great night of dancing. Some of the dances last night really blew me away. I especially loved Mark and Paige. They were my fave of the night. They brought on the FIRE. I loved Wanya & Lindsay and Nyle & Peta’s dances too. Von & Witney were one of my favorites as well. I am so sad to see them leave. They had the entertainment factor in spades and I’m a new Von fan now. What a run for Sasha and Kim too. They should be so proud for everything they did on that dance floor and I will cherish their kindness and fun approach every week.

Ok, let’s review the scores again….

Paige VanZant & Mark Ballas (Jive) 10-10-10 for a Total of 30
Ginger Zee & Valentin Chmerkovskiy (Viennese Waltz) 10-10-10 for a Total of 30
Nyle DiMarco & Peta Murgatroyd (Foxtrot) 10-9-9 for a Total of 28
Wanya Morris & Lindsay Arnold (Foxtrot) 9-9-9 for a Total of 27
Kim Fields & Sasha Farber (Samba) 9-9-9 for a Total of 27 (eliminated)
Jodie Sweetin & Keo Motsepe (Quickstep) 8-9-9 for a Total of 26
Antonio Brown & Sharna Burgess (Tango) 8-8-8 for a Total of 24
Von Miller & Witney Carson (Salsa) 8-8-8 for a Total of 24 (eliminated)

Onto some media, recaps, and interviews: First, see People, Glamour and ABC7 for some quotes from some of the couples, highlights, and photos. People may have more a little later, so keep checking the link.

WTAE also has a fun backstage report and they interviewed Antonio. Note that Antonio’s coach was there last night.

Also, if you missed any of the DWTS All Access interviews last night, see Stormy’s sites here and here. @Jimmbboe’s twitter account last night was lighting up the masses being Karina was one of the hosts (along with Tony) and she looked beautiful.

Entertainment Tonight has some highlights:

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, Week 7 – Live Blog!! (Spoilers)

In case you missed it, George P tweeted the dance order and I have updated the Who’s Dancing post. Based on that, I think perhaps my guess that the entire Men’s team will be called safe might be wrong. I suppose they could still do it, but I’m less certain. 🙂

Here’s to hoping for some good dancing!!

Man, the opening pro numbers just don’t have the pizzaz that they used to have. See seasons 5 or 6 for good examples.

Complaining about your scores is nearly a sure fire way to get Len’s knickers in a twist. 🙂 You can tell Keo is friends with Val and Maks by the opening of that dance. 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. :-)

Sneak Peek Of Men’s Dancing With The Stars Week 7 Team Dance

If you go to US Weekly, you can see a sneak peek video of the Men rehearsing for their team dance.

“You got to be James Brown,” Von Miller advises his team. And dance pro Sharna Burgess, who is paired with Nyle DiMarco, points out that the squad should be able to give the late Godfather of Soul a run for his money in the showmanship department: “There’s quite a lot of swag just standing in this group right now, though.”

Adds Wanya Morris, “We got Von’s personality, Antonio [Brown]’s smile, Nyle’s ability to make his body move to the counts, my ability to entertain. And if we embody all of that, we are going to win this challenge.”

Dancing with the Stars Season 22, Week 6 – Dancing by the Numbers

Well, this is going to be a tough one, folks, cuz all the low hanging fruit is gone. And double eliminations are doubly difficult. Any number of people could be on the chopping block.

Those who don’t have to worry this week are likely Nyle and Wanya.  And I guess Antonio, as much as it pains me to say so.  Everyone else? Well, this will be the week where we find out (partially) who isn’t getting the votes.  Here are the scores and percentages:

DWTS 22 Wk 6 Table 1

I’ve seen people on twitter using the typical hyperbole and they really don’t know what they’re talking about. “Ooooo…the scores are so tight it could be anyone.” Well, that’s not really true.  “We will probably get a shocking elimination.”  Yeah, that’s ONLY true if you’re a neophyte who has never seen this show before and you just came out of your cave in a loincloth. The ONLY truly shocking elimination this coming Monday would be either Wanya or Nyle.  No one else really qualifies…not even Antonio, really. I would be somewhat shocked, I guess, just because of his fanbase, but really shocked? Nah. It’s a double elimination and he’s widely been rumored to be a d*ck, so there you go.  Don’t think we’ll get that lucky though. 🙂

So why is the “It could be anyone” crowd wrong? Well, see below. Read more..

Carrie Anne Inaba Writes On DWTS Week 6, Leona Lewis In Audience Three Times This Season

Carrie Ann Inaba has written about Dancing With The Stars Week 6 at Access Hollywood. Wanya and Lindsay was her favorite this week. She gives advise to all the couples. She also talks on who was in the audience and more. Interesting for what she said on Leona Lewis. We better put her on our Rumor/Watch list.

ETA: According to a few fans in comments (thanks, Guys), Leona is dating Dennis Jauch (one of my new favorite dancers on the troupe). So, that may be why she’s been seen in the audience so much.

On a side note, I’ve seen Leona Lewis in the ballroom three times this season. I wonder if she is considering being a contestant on the show. Last night the audience was filled with fun folks. Michael Sam was in the house, Marissa Jaret Winokur an Lance Bass and Joey Fatone from *NSYNC all came for famous dances night. Famous Dance Night at DWTS can be a challenge because when you reenact an iconic dance, you are stepping into some very large shoes to fill. And last night’s dances were not easy dances to reenact. I would say the most difficult ones were, Michael Jackson’s “Bad,” choreographed by Jeffrey Daniels, Janet Jackson’s “Nasty,” choreographed by Paula Abdul, and Pink’s “Try,” choreographed by RJ Durell and Nick Florez. Because these dances were music videos, they were created to specifically highlight the singer’s unique style. They weren’t only about great dancing. The chore of the DWTS choreographer was to find a way to recreate these dances with their nonprofessional dancer and highlight what is great about them without losing what was great about the original. Once again, just a quick shout out to all the dancers who choreograph these routines every week.

Wanya and Lindsay were my favorite this week. That number was way too cool for school and has anyone noticed how thin Wanya is getting? He’s lost so much weight and he’s getting even better as he thins out. The choreography was incredible and really cool and innovative. They reminded us of the original performance with the intro but Lindsay and Wanya took it to a new level and owned that dance. They owned the night as far as I’m concerned. And Bruno agreed. Antonio came back with a bang… it was fun to see those feet in action. His Jive was very well suited for his athleticism. When he did those shuffles the beginning, his feel barely touched the ground. And that performance closed the night with a bang. I’m proud of him for what he taught us all about teamwork with his discussion with Sharna, but anyone who knows Sharna knows she’s 100% behind him and with him for the long haul. She’s a dedicated partner and he has nothing to worry about. But I will say that I (and the whole ballroom) were deeply moved by his teamwork speech. Go Steeler Nation.

Can’t wait for next week! Double Elimination. These couples better work hard this week and give us their best, because this season the competition is fierce. There is no consistent front-runner. It’s going to be a close race all the way to the end!

More at Access Hollywood including some cool behind the scenes photos.
