Dancing with the Stars Season 19, Week 3 – Who’s Dancing What….and When? (Song Spoilers)

This week, as people who are site members might be aware, we have a lot of info, but a lot of it isn’t really clear yet. 🙂 It’s still a work in progress.  Here’s the parts we’re fairly sure of:

ETA: I totally called this one on Twitter yesterday – Singing in the Rain by Derek Hough? Perfect. 🙂 Now is it that actual song? I’m assuming yes.

ETA2: The subtle-as-a-sledgehammer hints continue at the DancingABC Instagram Mike’s Twitter, as he pretty much confirms he’s gonna be Robin Hood.

ETA3: So, Len said during this past Monday’s show that Alfonso was doing V.Waltz, but his wife says he’s doing quickstep.

ETA4: We’re kinda doubting that Alfonso’s wife is right…

ETA5: …and I’m sure you can see why now 😛 No clue what the hell he & Witney are gonna do to this song…I’ve listened to it at least 10 times, and cannot find any strong semblance of a foxtrot or quickstep rhythm.  It’s a tad fast for a foxtrot, but not even enough for quickstep…who knows.  But I’m sure whatever it is – Alfonso’s gonna put on a helluva show 😎 Looks like Jonathan’s Mean Girls song didn’t clear so he ended up with his 2nd choice.  I have to wonder if they’re bending the rules a bit and going with the Amy Winehouse version, though, as the Beyonce version is rather slow.  Looks like “Pour Some Sugar on Me” was a safety song – but part of me kinda wants to see the pros dance to it instead 😉 And a different source confirmed that Bethany & Derek’s dance style is jazz – with quite a bit of tap influence 😉 -Court-

ETA6: ZOMG PLOT TWIST LOLZ!!!! 😯 Apparently “I Feel Pretty” is now off the table – and Vajanel has been seen rehearsing to “America” instead.  Wondering if Val may have jumped the gun on confirming they had cleared “I Feel Pretty” – either that, or “I Feel Pretty” wasn’t working out, and they asked to switch songs (after switching dances already, mind you).  Food for thought – draw your own conclusions.  Confirmed Betsey & Alfonso’s dances – Tony is apparently doing some gorgeous lifts with Betsey, so they do, indeed, have contemporary; and Alfonso’s old lady was right – he is doing quickstep.  How? I’m not sure…but I’m certainly intrigued. 🙂

ETA7: We have a more detailed explanation of what went down with West Side Story-gate – wanna hear it? Looka hurr.

ETA8: We can always rely on Cheryl to share her dance order…see below. 🙂

ETA9: Vogue here and scroll below to see a new “Movie Night” commercial. Here’s to tonight!

ETA10: Probably the last update before showtime – and before Heidi’s discussion post goes live in less than 10 minutes (complete with spoilers about next week’s show!) Apparently Randy & Karina are opening the show – AGAIN – and Betsey & Tony might be going 3rd…they said they are on Instagram, but Michael’s racing team also tweeted that he’s going 3rd.  So….who knows. Enjoy the show, kids 😎

And this is info that we have, but we don’t know who it goes with:

Rock of Ages (song: “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leppard) – samba

ETA: Derek says their movie is “super iconic, especially for dance, it doesn’t usually clear.” He said none of his former partners (or his sister) have been in it and it’s an “older film. A Classic.” I believe he said it’s older than Dirty Dancing, but I would have to listen to the interview again.

ETA2: We know that “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” is on the list but couldn’t figure out what movie it’s from until one of our members mentioned Guardians of the Galaxy. Also keep in mind that not all of the songs might get used…

ETA3: Given how coy Antonio & Cheryl acted when asked about Guardians of the Galaxy in their interview with George, and after talking it over with Deep Throat – we feel pretty confident that Antonio has “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. Now the question is: will he don a tree suit to channel Groot, while Cheryl dresses up as the squirrel? 😛 Also possibly worth noting: Jonathan’s interview is only somewhat incoherent, but it sounds like they were trying to clear a song for him from Mean Girls, with a song from a movie with “party scenes” as a backup.  Gatsby, perhaps? -Court-

Alfonso and AJ
