The Dancing Poetry Corner – Shuffling The Dancing Deck

Many seasons ago I had the idea to switch partners. I thought maybe it would be cool to see the celebrities take a turn on the ballroom floor with different pros. I’m not sure this concept was what I had in mind, an entire show worth of switching. But, it has turned out as sort of an exhibition. Yes, the pairs are judged. But, the votes actually go to the original pair. Last night’s show was a wonderful evening of dancing! There was no elimination.

The entire concept seems like a shuffling of a deck of cards. The crisp sound of those cards shuffling resonated in the Ballroom. The cards were stacked. Who would find their Ace in the Hole! Their Queen of Diamonds! Their King of Hearts! Their Queen of Hearts! Their Tens Card! Their Jack of All Trades! Was a romance in the cards?

The opening number actually resembled a deck of cards. They were pink doors, but my imagination drew me to that feeling of a deck of cards. Shuffling ensued as the new pairs were trying to find each other. It was cleverly choreographed leading to the introduction of the Judges. Lo and behold, there was the one, the only Maksim Chmerkovskiy in all his regal glory on the stage! Welcome back Maks for your encore judging performance! The Ace Card was in the Ballroom House!

Tom Bergeron returned to the Ballroom with a heavy heart. Our condolences for the Bergeron Family for the death of Ray Bergeron, Tom’s beloved Dad. Tom paid tribute to his Dad at the end of the show by saying his Dad loved the show. And perhaps somewhere his Dad would still be watching the show. I think so Tom. God be with you.

Sharna Burgess Writes On DWTS Week 5 With Andy Grammer, Excited For Next Week

Sharna Burgess has written a new blog at Hollywood Life. She had a lot of fun with Andy Grammer and hoped to continue that momentum he had with Allison. Now Sharna is looking forward to next week and getting back together with Nick. Below is more in detail. Be sure to see this link for 18 fun photos behind the scenes.

Well switch up week is never easy but Andy and I really had fun with this one. As pro dancers, we want to do the celebrity justice but they also want to make their pro partner very proud in what they achieve. There was a lot of pressure for me to step up to the plate with Andy, but I knew he already had a lot of potential in him and Allison had already done such a great job, and I wanted to continue to that momentum for them.

I think Andy really connected well to the intention of the character of the Argentine Tango he really embodied the essence of the dance, and got swept up in the story and I feel like that is why his performance was so special tonight and just wowed everybody.

I was also incredibly proud of Nick and Whitney! Paso is a great dance for him — he looked really strong and really clean, but I understand the judges’ comments and I’m really excited to get him back next week and put all of that feedback to work in rehearsals, and hopefully we can improve in all areas in the coming weeks.

Overall it was a very special night, not just for me, but for all the performers! I’m so excited for next week and look forward continue on this amazing journey with Nick on DWTS! Get ready for more from #TeamSharNick!!

PureDWTS Season 21, Week 6 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

So we’ve moved onto “Famous Dances” week, where the couples are supposedly going to be recreating “famous” dances from movies, musicals, music videos, etc. I’m predicting we see some repeats of songs we’ve already heard before on the show, and apparently Court is working on a post predicting some of them.

ETA: Judging from DancingABC’s latest Instagram post it looks like they’re STRONGLY hinting that Bindi got Dirty Dancing as her iconic dance.  In the past, it’s been used as a mambo (and it’s a mambo in the movie) – but then again, maybe it will get retooled as a jazz or something.  So mambo is just a guess on my part… -Court-

ETA2: Ugh. Judging from Carlos’ latest Instagram video it looks like he has *wretch* Magic Mike as his iconic dance.  Why do I feel like I would think this was lot less icky if it was someone other than Carlos doing it? Just one problem: as I recall, that song was Channing Tatum dancing solo for a room full of women, and ended up stripping down to a thong. And kneepads.  Where exactly does Witney fit into this? -Court-

ETA3: And then DancingABC continues with the painfully unsubtle, punny clues and pretty much confirms that Alek has Jailhouse Rock. Ok, I can be down with that – especially if they darken his hair up. -Court-

ETA4: According to Glamour, Nick has “You Should Be Dancing”, which is one of the songs I predicted might get reused in my prediction post.  So that’s (3) songs so far that have gotten repeated, and two of them (possibly 3) that could be wonky dance styles.  I am beginning to think we might be seeing some disco, hip-hop, and mambo this week…-Court-

ETA5: It would just about figure that the minute I get done updating, they release all the songs…anywho, a few thoughts: I’m thinking the bulk of these HAVE to be weird dance styles, i.e. hip-hop, jazz, disco, etc., and I’m hoping they give the couples a bit of a free pass…cause if everyone else has the freedom of doing jazz/hip-hop and couples like Alek & Lindsay and Hayes & Emma are stuck doing ballroom styles, I’m calling foul. -Court-

ETA6: According to Derek’s blog, Bindi has a rumba.  Hate to say this, but I’m getting I’m getting the same feeling I was for his “If I Could Turn Back Time” rumba with Amber – this song is wayyy too fast and energetic to be an effective rumba. -Court-

ETA7: So, our source has some of the dances and Derek/Bindi weren’t the only ones to get hosed. Get this – “Pony” is a rumba. WTF?? We confirmed Alexa’s Cha Cha and Alek’s Jive – he should be lucky they didn’t decide that was a rumba as well. Maybe only because he’s already done rumba. Ha. Someone has a Samba and all the rest are apparently Jazz. Bah humbug. Jazz on DWTS is code for “we’re going to let them do whatever they want and not call it contemporary.”  If I left the question mark after the dance style, that means I guessed. ~Heidi

ETA8: Back right away to update a bit more since Court tells me the only one who has already done Jazz is Nick, so he must be the samba. ~Heidi

ETA9: Okay, so apparently Carlos shirt comes off nearly immediately and his dance is exactly what you’d expect – bump and grind.  ~Heidi

ETA10: Our source says that Derek and Bindi’s “Rumba” is a rumba in name only and it uses a LOT of the choreo from the movie. It’s thought that it will be a crowd pleaser at any rate, as it is a true homage. A montage of memorable moments from the movie.  During rehearsal it was mentioned by Derek that it’s unusual that he can use so much of the choreo, that they had gotten the rights to use it. In the course of this conversation he confirmed that he was almost in the Dirty Dancing remake. This is what I’ve been telling people for YEARS. I knew from watching video of Derek’s interviews around the time that movie was shelved – it was obvious. Now it’s confirmed. 🙂 It’s pretty obvious to me that Kenny Ortega loves Derek and that’s why they can use so much of the choreo. They will probably get hosed (my opinion only), but our source thinks the crowd will love it. 🙂 Expect me to pitch a fit if and when they get hosed, since according to Derek’s blog they were directed to stick close to the original choreography. Getting to be a typical thing with this show – tell Derek what to do and then penalize him for it.

ETA11: Vogue here. According to Emma’s twitter, she and Hayes are dancing 1st tonight. Also, according to DancingABC (instagram below), there is an opening number tonight! Let’s hope it’s longer than 30 seconds.

ETA12: Full running order updated. -Court-

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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 21, Week 5 – Power Rankings

Well I gotta give TPTB some props – at least they managed to last through 4 weeks before kicking the manipulation machine into high gear. But man, did they overcompensate this week – aside from Paula still at the bottom and Bindi still at the top, the scoreboard got all shuffled up this week.  Alexa shot up from being 2nd from the bottom last week, to getting the high score this week and 4th place in combined scores; Carlos jumped from 5th place last week (and in jeopardy) to getting the 2nd highest score of the night and 2nd place with combined scores. Tamar went from being part of the 3-way tie for 2nd place, to being in 7th place after this week; and poor Alek, with two weeks worth of emotional trauma (and low-balled scores) under his belt, is now second to last. Andy managed to jump from 7th place last week to 5th this week, while going from straight 7’s and 8’s to straight 9’s.  I will credit SOME of this drastic shuffling to some people getting switch partners that were much better at harnessing their talents than their original pro, while some ended up with pros that were worse than their original partner. And for the love of Jeebus, judges – be a little more understanding that it’s switch week.  I get that you have an agenda, but it BLOWS MY MIND how you can talk about how the switch is so tough in one breath, and then dole out nitpicky critiques and lowballed scores in another. Thankfully, the double elim that we were hearing about for next week was a false alarm, and only one couple is going home next Monday – but last night’s scores do make me seriously wonder what the narrative is going to look like in the coming weeks.

I found myself agreeing with Maks far more than I thought I would – and I was particularly pleased that he finally called Allison out on her busy, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink choreography. Will be interesting to see if that comment is received the same way that Alfonso’s comment to Alexa was a few weeks back – although judging from Twitch’s twitter timeline, I’m guessing it’s not going to be received well. Also felt like Maks might have taken an interesting, subtle jab at the switch-up itself, when he told Tamar “You just got together this week, so you didn’t get to connect”. He wasn’t immune to the wonky-ness, though, and he gave a couple scores that made me raise an eyebrow. I do commend  him on giving more coherent critiques this time – overall, I’d give him an 8 out of 10.

Other observations? I am very aware that Nick is a Backstreet Boy – therefore, I do not need to to see Nick doing the “Backstreet’s Back” move every week to remind me. This is the 3rd time it’s gotten thrown into a routine, and twice was enough for me – find something else for this guy to do.  Was it just me, or did the first half of the show seem to be devoted to the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it boner joke? Caught at least 3 innuendo-y moments. Also wish they would have kept Tamar in the outfit she wore for the intro dance – she looked STUNNING, and then they put her in  that weird, feathery swan dress for her actual dance.  No me gusta.

Since this is a ranking of who I think is most likely to stay or go (based on this week’s scores and last week’s), I’m half-tempted to do a “switch-up postmortem” tomorrow where I actually rank how well I thought the pros handled the switch, and maybe throw in a poll to see how you guys felt about it, too…would that be something you’re interested in?
