Dancing with the Stars Season 20 – Things That Make You Go Hmmmm….Shane Harper?

Large word of caution – this is based on very, very little. Thing is, last time we posted something similar, Cody Simpson really did dance. And the last time I ignored something like this, I shouldn’t have (Hines Ward). And you can’t deny the timing is about right. So, this from Shane Harper – many of his fans immediately assumed DWTS. Thing is, this guy is an actual trained dancer – if he’s actually cast, he would be a massive ringer. Also FYI – he’s apparently VERY tall. 🙂

Shane Harper

P.S. There is a Shane Harper that is a hockey player but I checked several times to make sure I had the right one. This one is 6 foot plus, 21-year old singer, dancer actor. I can’t believe they would cast someone who is well trained enough to claim to be “Principle Dancer” in a variety of TV shows and movies, but consider his age and the producers obsession with the youth demo. That said, he can’t touch the online following of either Cody or James.

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. :-)

DWTS Julianne Hough Gives Advise To Aspiring Dancers, Talks On Her Worst Costume Fail, And More – New Interview

Parade has a fun interview posted with Julianne Hough! She promotes Venus Swirl and gives advice to aspiring dancers. Below is a take of worst costume fail. Note how Mark Ballas played a part in it.

What was your worst costume fail of all time?

“My worst costume fail was when I was about 14 in Blackpool England at one of the biggest competitions in the world. I’m dancing in the final with my partner and I have a dress that is completely covered in the back, but the way you get into it is a clasp in the front. As I was dancing, I crossed my arms in the front and it unclasped the dress, so my top was completely exposed. Everything else was covered except for that so I had to continue dancing while covering myself up. My partner was Mark Ballas from Dancing with the Stars. So I would hold the dress and then when I would have to do something, he would hold it. The whole audience clapped when we were done because it was amazing that we could keep it closed–because I couldn’t just stop in the middle of the dance!”

Much more at Parade . Thanks to Lori for the find!
