Dancing with the Stars Season 21 Finale Video Chat

We had such a successful chat before the final Monday night performances of Dancing with the Stars season 21, that we decided we’d do it again before the DWTS season 21 finale as well.

The great part is that up to 4 people can join the video chat at a time and we can rotate people through so that everyone gets a chance to participate. For those that are shy on camera, we welcome you to get over that shyness and join us anyway. If that still doesn’t work, you can always watch and comment in the chat area.

Long story short, we’ll be doing the DWTS finale video chat Tuesday, November 23 at 6:30 ET (3:30 PT). You can view it on this page or at this link. I look forward to seeing and chatting live with many of you before the finale!

P.S. We’ll probably go up until when the show starts on the east coast, but if some people want to stay on during the show we could do that too. Only problem for me is that I’m on the west coast. However, if the east coast keeps it going, I could pick it back up when the west coast starts. Nothing like a 6 hour video chat. We’ll play it by ear.

Dancing with the Stars Season 21 THE FINALE Night One – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Okay all – this is it. The end of another season. Don’t know what’s going to happen, but I hope the dancing is good. 🙂

Because it’s the finale, it’s really important you remember the rule below:

NOTE: DO NOT POST ONE LINER COMMENTS AND CONTINUALLY REFRESH THE PAGE!! It’s the finale – breaking the rules might get you temporarily banned. The traffic is too high for this. Please walk away from the computer for a few minutes after commenting so others have a chance without the site shutting down. Thx.

I’m going to leave comment moderation turned off for now. Behave. 🙂

T-minus 30 minutes…

Here we go…our male pros wearing far more clothing than most of them are used to. 🙂

Carlos foxtrot started out looking like an AT or something, with the walk, the pose, the colors. Wonder if it counts as a lift if she has her hand on the floor but not her feet….

Sexiest foxtrot?? Really, it was a decent dance, but it seems un-foxtrot like – they got hosed by the song.

Alek’s arms are still weird, but he has improved tremendously. Huge lift right in the middle of the dance. Wonder if their coach will call it. Also of note – CAI’s attitude when she was with them was very down.

Heard on All Access – ALEXA is going to be in Carlos’ freestyle. Derek and Bindi are non-stop practicing backstage.

Beautiful flashback to the DWTS of old – Meghan Trainor singing while Peta and Artem dance. Gorgeous.

This Jive from Nick is going in and out. In sync, then out of sync, clean, then messy. If he gets a perfect score for this I call foul.

Yeahhhhh…..guess I can see better on TV. Definitely better than some he’s done, but not perfect.

Come on, Bindi!! Holy crap…I don’t think I breathed during that whole dance. I never would have lasted – unbelievable.

Well, I had a lot more written but I lost it because I can’t update the site because people are refreshing too much.

I will just say that I didn’t really care for either Carlos or Alek’s freestyles, although I liked Alek’s better. Me not liking it could be in large part to being pissed I couldn’t get on the site. Witney borrowed a bit heavily from MOVE Live on Tour, with the lights and the formation at the beginning of hers. And I tended to lose Alek and Lindsay in parts of their dance.

And they change the order. Bindi just got seriously hosed. I’mma be pissed. There better be a damn good reason.

Bindi and Derek slayed that. I’m all weepy now, thanks. Derek putting that photo up there without telling Bindi. Wow.

Er…that’s it?? I mean, it was good, but it was just like a dance he did earlier in the season and totally expected. :::sigh:::

Notice in that last shot the only person with their hands not on the MBT?? Bindi and Derek.

First Safe is Alek…

Then Bindi….

And (as predicted) Carlos and Witney were eliminated.

ETA: Because I’m not sure where else to put this, here are the three dances for the 24-hour Dance Challenge.  -Court-

Nick & Sharna – Tango/Salsa
Bindi & Derek – Argentine tango/Cha-Cha
Alek & Lindsay – Tango/? (source only knew that each fusion had tango in it)

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. :-)

Dancing Pros Live Tour With Edyta Sliwinska, Cheryl Burke, And Gleb Savchenko?

According to Edyta Sliwinska, the “Dancing Pros Live” tour starts in February (see instagram below). Also, according to the official Dancing Pros Live site, Cheryl Burke and Gleb Savchenko will be performing. This time period might work for Gleb too as the “Strictly Come Dancing” tour ends in the middle of February….that is, if he’s dancing in it too? Tickets haven’t gone on sale yet, but, be watching the Dancing Pros Live site closely for when they do and for more information. I hope it’s true and they are touring near everyone interested in going. I saw this show last year and it was fantastic!! You can see dancers from all over the world dance in this show.
