DWTS Season 19 Week 9!! Let’s discuss tonight’s show! (Spoilers)

Once again, comment to your hearts contents, as long as you remember the show night rules.

  1. Our server gets totally hosed when people sit at their computer and click “refresh” constantly. Post a comment, then walk away for five minutes so that others have a chance…and so that Courtney and I can actually post on the site. 🙂
  2. THIS SITE IS NOT TWITTER. Do not post like you are on twitter. You get one warning and then I put you in time out. 🙂 We need context and content. Believe it or not there are a lot of people who don’t watch the east coast feed of the show, so they don’t know what the hell you’re talking about when you post a comment that says, “Boy, that sucked.”  If you want to say “____ and ____’s dance was not good at all, crappy choreo” that’s fine. That would be context. It is good. 😀  Remember, if you post five one liners in five minutes, you’ve broken rule number 1. 😉

 

And Tommy and Peta have made it to the Semi-Final. Oh Dear.

I have to believe this means Lea is going home – but you just never know.

Alfonso’s foxtrot was just delightful. Wonderful. Loved it. OMG, CAI – you pretty much suck. Are you kidding me??

Okay, I thought Alfonso was slightly underscored, but I would have to watch it again.

Oh, yeah, I def want to see Janel and Val kiss because it’s so unique and different. :::rolls eyes:::

Lordy, Tommy was lookin pretty good in the package…

I just love tommy. He got tired about halfway through, but that wasn’t horrible.

Lea is still to delicate. Very pretty – perhaps too pretty. Not raunchy enough.

Fierce?? I don’t think so. But the score is probably about right.

Something felt strange about Beth’s dance – loved it, but something was weird. Perhaps it’s just so absurdly SHORT. They all are. Len was in Austria?? LOL. I sense 9’s across the board.

And what the hell? Derek is working some seriously ungroomed scruff. I’m okay with this.

So, Vajanel gets the pimp spot and everyone is getting 9’s or lower. Interesting.

Sadie is too cute. I swear. There were a few instances where her long limbs got a bit in the way, but it was a very cute dance. Loved it.

And Len likes it too – but thought it could have been tighter. I don’t disagree with that.

8’s?? Seriously? Good lord, if Janel had done that dance she would have gotten straight 10s. And yay, are they going last cuz they’re gonna kiss?? gag.

Janel is getting the “You did awesome” edit.

Ridiculously long time of them not dancing in an already shortened routine. And she just seriously stumbled, and got dragged by Val.

Okay, Julianne, you are on SERIOUS crack. REALLY? The fix is either all the way in or Janel is going home. She didn’t start dancing for a LONG time!! And Val dragged her at one point!! Best dance of the night??? Does anyone still think she’s not being pimped??? This is absolutely the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. They noted an actual MISTAKE!!

Bethany – no mistakes got 9’s. Sadie – no actual mistakes and got 8’s. Alfonso, no mistakes, got 9’s. Absolutely ridiculous.

Alfonso just did a perfect Paso. Let’s see if he actually rates a perfect score. That was amazing. Whitney is turning into one hell of a choreographer.

Now they got something right. You want to tell me that Janel’s quickstep was only two points down from that?? As if.

Tommy makes me laugh so hard. That was just so silly and funny. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t scared he might break something.

Lea’s Trio was massively improved over her first dance, IMO. Well done for her.

Wow. That was intense. I dug it.

Let me guess…a kiss and a mistake get 10’s yet a pretty flawless AT will get all 9’s. A dance with noted mistakes gets called best dance of the night by CAI and she nitpicks a superior (in every way) dance.

Wow…that was some beautiful choreography from Mark. Sadie had an obvious mistake at the end but she covered it well. She better get a great score, if Janel can fuck up and get 10’s.

Yes, I AM going to harp on that for the rest of the night. It was disgraceful.

Okay, we’re doing some serious story boarding here. Two dances with VERY obvious mistakes have been scored as good or higher than dances with no actual errors. I adore Sadie – and she’s been underscored all season long, so I can forgive that a bit more. But man. This is getting ridiculous. Bethany must be killing it in the votes.

Again. Julianne says there was not a lot of content but she doesn’t care. COME ON!! Judge the damn show!! Either she’s going home, or they are desperate for her to get to the finale over Tommy. This is beyond ridiculous.

So, a woman who did a dance that had an obvious mistake and a dance that was lacking in content is at the top of the leader board with Alfonso? Yeah, that’s fair.

SPOILERS –

As everyone predicted, Lea is the one to go home this week.

I am furious. That is all.

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. :-)

Is Tommy Chong Dropping Out Of Dancing With The Stars Tonight?

According to E Online, it’s possible Tommy Chong might drop out of the competition tonight on Dancing With The Stars because of an injury. Let’s hope not. I have enjoyed him and Peta so much.

But as admirable as Chong’s determination was last week, the Cheech & Chong star might not be able to push through the pain tonight.

Chong has now had two appointments at Stand Up MRI in Beverly Hills, E! News has confirmed. He has a tear in his calf and said that unless something dramatically improves, he will have to bow out of the competition, a source tells E! News. For now, his situation is being monitored closely and he will find out if he’s cleared to perform before tonight’s show.

The 76-year-old posted a video on Instagram on Sunday, which featured him getting an MRI to see if he has “any serious injuries to the calf.” He captioned the video, “Making sure my leg is ready for the Quarter Finals tomorrow. Thank you for all the support #dwts @dancingabc.”

See a Photo Of Sadie Robertson’s America’s Choice DWTS Costume

You can see a picture of Sadie Robertson’s new costume for the America’s Choice dance at E Online. It’s just stunning. A must see!!!

In honor of Dancing With the Stars’ “America’s Choice” week, E! Online gave fans the responsibility of choosing Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson’s costume for tonight’s show. All season long, Sadie’s looks, which all must be approved by her father, Willie Robertson, have been a major topic of conversation amongst the ABC reality hit’s fan base, so getting to choose her latest outfit is a pretty big deal.

So which design won? With 58 percent of the vote, the sweetheart neckline option topped the one-shoulder dress. And we’ve got your exclusive first look at the winning costume in all its glittering, fringed glory!

Janel Parrish Gives Sneak Peek Into Tonight’s Dances On Dancing With The Stars

Janel Parrish has written a new blog at TV Guide. Below is what she wrote on their two new dances for tonight on Dancing With The Stars.

This week we have two full dances, which has definitely been a challenge. Val and I have the quickstep, which was America’s choice. They got to choose everything we’re doing – the costumes, the end, how it begins. They voted that they wanted Val to bring the beard back, so he’s bringing back the beard! And they voted on our song, so we’re dancing to “Hey Boy, Hey Girl.”

I’m so happy with all their choices. It’s going to be really cute. At first, I was really worried about the quickstep, but now that we’ve started working on it, I think it’s going to be really fun. I can tell that my ballroom hold has gotten a little better since we started, so I’m a little less stressed out about it than I thought I was going to be at first.

The second dance is a trio, and we’re doing that with Keo Motsepe, so we’re calling it our “trio with Keo” and it’s going to be a salsa. We all have a trio and it’s up to us to decide how we go about that. We’ve decided on a really sexy kind of tribal salsa dance. It’s going to be really cool.

The quickstep is going to be really cute and fun and playful, so I’m looking forward to that since we haven’t had that in many dances, and the salsa’s going to be raw and sexy and kind of animalistic, and I’m looking forward to that as well.

More at TV Guide with her thoughts on last week’s dances and more.
