DWTS Season 21, Week SEVEN – Dancing by the Numbers

Well, sh*t’s about to get REAL. And figuring out who’s going home this week is not easy, between the close scores and the stoopid immunity stuff.

Speaking of immunity, watch out for Bindi and Nick. If one of them gets a 28 or 29 and they dance early in the show, someone else is most likely getting immunity. It’ll likely be REAL fishy and I’d almost put money on it happening – I’m thinking either Tamar or Alexa.   I also expect the producers to try real hard to get Carlos vs. Alexa and Derek vs. Val. Yes, I used the pro names for a REASON. Derek don’t play, but Val makes it very easy for them.

I *think* from the press release the immunity is for Week 9, but it’s so poorly written that I can’t be sure.  Of course, the natural question is – what if the person winning immunity is the person who has already been determined to have the lowest combined score and who should be going home Monday night?  Well, that’s a question I don’t know the answer to and I’m afraid it will only piss me off. 🙂  After Monday is over, if that is a possibility, I’ll do a follow up to this post.  Read more..

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. :-)

Witney Carson And Carlos PenaVega Hang Out With Mark Anthony For DWTS Icon Week

I’ve always been a huge Mark Anthony fan (my fave songs: “You Sang To Me” and “I Need To Know“). It’s going to be cool to see how he might have inspired Carlos PenaVega on Dancing With The Stars Monday night. In case you haven’t read yet, Witney and Carlos will be doing a Salsa to Mark’s ‘Valio La Pena’.

Bindi Irwin is a “Badass” Per Derek Hough’s New DWTS Blog

Since PDH is currently experiencing technical difficulties, I figured I would post Derek’s blog here first. It’s a very interesting read, as per usual. I suggest you all check it out. I’ve put an excerpt of  below. It’s pretty much as I guessed re: ghostbusters and his thoughts on losing.

I think you guys are more bummed about my team dance record ending than I am! Team Nightmare totally deserved that win. That was so, so good. I’m not gonna lie — I felt like our song was a complete letdown. Maybe not “complete,” but nothing againstGhostbusters — which I love — but the song was less inspiring. When I saw the other group’s dance, I was like, “That’s the one.” They were just so cohesive, and the costumes and choreography were so perfect.

—-

This week we have the foxtrot. I don’t think Bindi is thinking of foxes just yet. It’s always a little hard going from one of my favorite dances, the Argentine tango, to something like the foxtrot. I’m trying to make it interesting and add some fun elements to it. What’s fantastic about Bindi that I don’t think people realize is that she does her homework. If we do Dirty Dancing or Lost Boys, the next day, she comes in and is like, “OK, I watched the movie and a bunch of videos last night and then I watched our rehearsal video. I was studying them.” She comes in having done all this homework and is ready to go. She wants to get better and is not just all talk. It’s amazing. She’s definitely not of those people who just put in the work while in rehearsal; she goes the extra mile. So, yes, she did watch The Jeffersons after we got that song!

Carrie Ann Inaba And Julianne Hough’s Fashion Post For DWTS Season 21, Week 7

Changing the number of weeks in a season really throws me off. I’m finding that I have to work to remember what week number we’re at, and thinking that usually at this week, we see x y and z, but the extra week is throwing me off. I would love to get back to staying with only 10 weeks, and enough celebrities for 10 great weeks and no double eliminations. And no stupid theme weeks, and crazy challenges. And go back to what made this show the amazing show that it is…. Make the next season RETRO-DWTS! No jazz, no contemporary, no charleston or bollywood or any of the other styles they’ve added. No lifts, no lifts, no lifts. No props, no huge productions allowed every single dance for every single episode. VERY limited use of the troupe, opening and bumpers. Pro dances choreographed by THE PROS! No themes. Lots of cha cha, jive, waltz and Viennese Waltz, tango and argentine tango, paso doble, foxtrot, quickstep, mambo, samba and whatever I’ve forgotten that we don’t see enough anymore. Oh, and bring back the No Score, Let’s Just Have a Blast Group Dance! Forget the need to have the professional dancers prove themselves by giving impossible challenges, let them prove themselves by letting them teach and dance they styles they know so well!

Now, shall we talk about Hayes elimination? No, much has been said already. I will say, though, that he has grown and matured quite a bit while on the show, and Emma’s definitely taught him a LOT, and not just dancing, but Life. I know Tamar got a bad edit in her package, but what she said doesn’t bother me as much as what Val said, “I feel like she’s finally starting to trust me, and it’s week 7.” Ouch. It does show. She can’t develop a good connection with Val, becaue she just doesn’t trust him? herself? It’s more than what Louis said on AfterBuzz when he blasted Julianne for saying she doesn’t see a connection between them in hold, because you’re not supposed to be looking at each other…. Look at Hayes and Emma and the connection they’ve got, and compare it to the connection between Tamar and Val. To me, Tamar and Val just feels… Lifeless? Emotionless? Like she’s just putting in time, and going through the motions and not investing anything of HER other than what’s expected. Hayes trusts Emma, and he likes Emma, and it helped their dancing. It’s hard for me to completely put into words, but if Tamar and Val had the same level of trust and the same level of emotional connection (not passion), I would be very happy if she won this season.

Moving on, Carrie Ann’s Parade blog is up and everyone should probably head over and read it. And to Carrie Ann? If you’re reading, HI! Don’t be a stranger, we don’t bite (too hard), please pop on and say hi! And I urge you to watch for Princess Heidi’s weekly Numbers post, she puts everything down in black and white and explains all of the numbers, and we can see why Hayes elimination wasn’t a huge surprise. It’s easy to understand, too.

Julianne’s blog is up over on Instyle.com, and you can head over and read it by clicking the link. We get to read about Julianne’s GORGEOUS! updo!!!  Did anyone else think that it was the perfect style for her wedding????

I couldn’t find any photos of Leah, but, she did much better than last week, and I loved seeing her frightened…. Love seeing the scares. I wouldn’t like it if it happened TO me, but Sasha’s such a sweet guy, how can anyone be mad at him long?
