PureDWTS Season 19 Week 10 Poem: “Plugging Into The Semi-Finals”

Give it up for Lois!! Here she is with another one of her fabulous poems…

My Poem for Week 10

A darkened ballroom, ticks counting down on the clock!
The switch was flipped, lights shining bright as the sun!

DANCING WITH THE STARS was:

PLUGGING INTO THE SEMI-FINALS!

AN ELECTRIFYING, ENERGIZING EVENING OF DANCE!

PLUGGING INTO THE SEMI-FINALS, the ballroom dazzling, a’glow
AN ELECTRIFYING, ENERGIZING EVENING OF DANCE, grand show

The dancing pairs were given a challenge, two dances it would be
A plugged version, an unplugged version, talent would be the key

The ballroom shook with applause, Tom and Erin issuing the call
Time to plug in the dances, time to begin the grand dancing ball

Each dancing pair shook off their nerves, their feet ready to dance
The audience far and wide ready to see who had the best chance

BETHANY AND DEREK

PLUGGING INTO I WANT YOU BACK
SAMBA – WITH ASSIST FROM SASHA FARBER

Snappy moves, two guys in love with a girl, full of heart
A Central Park Promenade, light, fluffy, like cotton candy

UNPLUGGING INTO I WANT YOU BACK
CONTEMPORARY

A picture frame filled with the simplicity of dance
Like a painting coming alive, modern masterpiece

JANEL AND VAL

PLUGGING INTO BLAME
PASO DOBLE – WITH AN ASSIST FROM MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY

Fierce, full on powerful attack, fabulous, as one, force of nature
Crisp as a starched white shirt, powerful, pulsating beats

UNPLUGGING INTO BLAME
ARGENTINE TANGO
WITH TIME FOR THREE – FEATURING A VALENTIN VIOLIN

Connection by a concerto, vibrant, vivacious, gift of dance
Dynamic interpretation, putting the oo in mood, intimate

ALFONSO AND WITNEY

PLUGGING INTO LOVE RUNS OUT
ARGENTINE TANGO

Full of spirit, speed, strength, smoke and fire, fight
Artistry from the Prince of Buenos Aires, glory lasts forever

UNPLUGGING INTO LOVE RUNS OUT
CONTEMPORARY – WITH CHRISTINA GRIMMIE

Poetry in motion, fluid lines, drama, passion, intensity, being free
Partners on the same page, two instruments playing same tune

SADIE AND MARK

PLUGGING INTO PROBLEM
QUICKSTEP

Floaty, flirty, fast stepping, full of speedy feet, detail oriented
Sadie – a shining light, brilliant, bit of Hip Hop and Charleston

UNPLUGGING INTO PROBLEM
ARGENTINE TANGO – WITH NOAH GUTHRIE

Guitar prop, sensational, staccato movements, classy, poised
True to Sadie, powerful, challenging choreography, a connection

TOMMY AND PETA

PLUGGING INTO TAINTED LOVE
JAZZ

Red hot, fiery flame of flirtation, great entertainment
Peta – human defibrillator – MVP of Season 19

UNPLUGGING INTO TAINTED LOVE
RUMBA

Balletic, sweet, endearing, graceful gallantry, magical
Touching, honestly felt between the master and muse

PLUGGING INTO THE SEMI FINALS, two dances were energized and electrified
AN ELECTRIFYING, ENERGIZING EVENING OF DANCE, greatness personified!

Hi, I'm a news hounds from way back. Since 1999, I've worked on Madonna and Enrique Iglesias fan sites....and now PureDWTS. I have always been a big music and dancing fan, but, I'm also passionate about photography, nature, animals, and spending as much time as possible travelling and camping with my hubby and our loving and patriotic doggie, Cash.

Afterbuzz TV And Mandy Moore Review The DWTS19 Semi-Finals

Below is the new Afterbuzz TV show. This time Mandy Moore joins the gang to review the Dancing With The Stars Semi-Finals. First up, Mandy clears up how she’s not just helping one couple for the Finale, but, she’s been helping all of the couples all season with her advice since she is the “Performance Producer” for the show (Hmmm….say what you will, but, I still don’t think it’s right that she’s helping to choreograph one couple’s dance for the Finale).

I also loved what the panel said on Allison Holker at the end and how she is an “animal”. I agree with Jake when he said people like Allison, Witney, and Derek, etc. are and have helped to shape the show into more than just “ballroom” dancing. I hope Allison gets another shot at being a pro too.

Lot’s of content to think about again below with their opinions. Let us know what you think….

Carrie Ann Inaba Writes On The DWTS Finale, Believes It’s Anyone’s Game

Carrie Ann Inaba has written a new blog at Parade. She writes on all of the couples again for their strengths and weaknesses. One thing I don’t agree with though is when she writes that Alfonso and Janel are the best dancers. Maybe Alfonso, but Janel? Sadie and Bethany have been the better dancers in my opinion. Let us know what you think in comments.

However, the diehard dancing fans, the ones who want to see only the best dancers in it to win it, will be happy that next week, the final four will be Bethany, Sadie, Janel and Alfonso. Diehard fans are super-excited because this is going to be a close one. All four have the potential to win it this season!

In my mind, the best two dancers—the ones with the most polish and highest scores so far—are Janel Parrish and Alfonso Ribeiro. The two dark horses are Bethany Mota and Sadie Robertson. But this is an interesting year. Our social media presence has grown and people are voting and getting involved in our show in new ways. We have a broader audience now, a younger one to enhance our extremely steadfast family of viewers who have stayed with us all these years. (And I thank you for that!) We love our fans. They have become our family!

But the two dark horses have big fan bases that are younger and more social media savvy. This could make the finale interesting. In the past, we’ve had younger stars (Cody Lindley and Sabrina Bryant, for example) with incredible fan bases. Their dancing was worthy of making the finals, but their fans didn’t stick with them. This year, it feels like the fans are here! They are making their presence known. I see it in my twitter and Instagram feeds and on my Facebook and whosay pages. This is the face of the new generation of DWTS fans. Welcome!

More at Parade. Note that she says the judges have picked the Jive for Alfonso and Witney’s Judges Choice dance.

And how about this dress? I loved it and her shoes….

DWTS2014 Mark Ballas Writes On His Game Plan For The Finals, Candace Cameron Bure Wears Her Little Mermaid Costume Again

Mark Ballas writes of how Sadie Robertson got sick and wasn’t feeling the best on Monday night during Dancing With The Stars at Hollywood Life. However, Sadie carried on and they ended up getting 2 10’s for their second dance. He was so proud. Below are some hints for the Finals.

We have a really nice piece planned for Sadie’s final number, and I think people are really going to enjoy it! The music is going to start, and I think everyone is going to identify with it because it’s so iconic.

It’s judges’ pick next week, which means the judges will choose any of our past performances that they really enjoyed that they would like to see again. So they will be telling us which one of our dances they would like for us to repeat!

This week’s game-plan is to not change anything up and just keep doing what we’ve been doing. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! We want to enjoy each other’s time and company — it’s the final week that Sadie and I will spend together in this competition, and we want to have a really good time. We’re going to bust a sweat and work hard, but we won’t lose sight of what’s important.

If you’d like to read more, see Hollywood Life. They have some fun backstage pictures too.

And below is a fun flashback. Apparently, Mark’s previous partner Candace Cameron Bure wore Read more..
