Dancing with the Stars Season 17, Week 1 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Hoo-ray!! It’s that time again folks. Time to talk about dances and dance order. Who’s going to do well and who’s…not. πŸ™‚

Leah going second to last is no surprise as she’s one of the bigger names. I’d be willing to bet that Valerie goes last – takers? πŸ™‚ Amber got a good spot at the top of the second hour. Pretty interesting that they stuck Bill in the second hour.

ETA 1: I take it back. I don’t think they will have two foxtrots back to back and Leah and Valerie have the same dance. So…maybe she will go first?? No, cuz Jack is going second. Hmmmm…Here’s my guess. For now.

ETA 2: hmmmm…someone tells me that Peta says they are dancing first, so I think there was a shuffle late in the game.

ETA 3: And Cheryl says they are dancing 4th. How widespread is the shuffle??

ETA 4: So, Snooki’s number is 12 – but will she dance last??

ETA 5: A little birdie tells me that the DWTS crew will play paparazzi in the opening number tomorrow night. πŸ™‚

ETA 6: And Tony says he and Leah are dancing second. It’s starting to seem like they set the phone numbers before they did the dance order. Possibly because they had to do camera blocking a day earlier than normal? Who knows what’s going on.

ETA 7: And a birdie named Courtney tells me that she’s 75% sure that the opening number is to “Applause” by Lady Gaga. She’s sure it’s a Lady Gaga song, in any case. πŸ˜€ Β She also told me to blame her if it’s wrong.

ETA 8: Sharna says they are dancing 8th…and their number 3408? Well, see, all is not lost. πŸ™‚

Hilarious video from Mark entitled “Judges be dead” – Derek’s making me think of Princess Bride cuz it’s clear that he’s only “mostly dead”. πŸ˜€
