What Did Calvin Johnson’s former team mates think of his first dance on Dancing With The Stars? Detroit Lion punter Sam Martin said a big group of them got together for an unofficial watch party on Monday night. He said Calvin killed it and he was “smooooth”. He voted for him and he asked the reporter if he did too. So cute! More at WXYZ.

PureDWTS Season 23 Fashion: How great did Erin Andrews, Julianne Hough and Carrie Ann Inaba look on Week 1?

WOW! What a week! Definitely eventful. Memorable. And very scary! Miss Vogue has written about what Carrie Ann says about it here on our site, and a great follow up, where ABC talks to the protesters when they were released from jail here on our site. We’ll focus on the fashions here today.

Carrie Ann’s blog is no longer at Parade magazine, she’s moved to SheKnows. Besides the protest incident, she talks about her dress on Monday, as well as her Creative Arts Emmy dress, and gives us a preview of the dress she’ll wear to the Emmy’s on Sunday. Her stylist is Jen Rade, and I think she did a great job in finding these dresses! I loved the pink in her dress on the show, the cut of the dress suited her, and the dress made the turquois in the jewelry pop!

Erin’s got her blog still on People, and I’ve not been able to find something from Julianne this season. If she’s got one and I missed, please mention where in comments, so we can add it in here. Erin’s changed stylists this season, she and Julianne both have Anita Patrickson’s team styling them, so she’s pretty busy on Show days! I loved Erin’s sparkle, and the dress! Wow! and how about Julianne’s hair with the laurel crown and roses in her hair? And that dress!

I wish we at home could see the judges as they’re coming in, because both Julianne and Carrie Ann had gorgeous dresses, but we can only see the top, since they’re sitting down behind a desk!

I can’t pick a favorite this week, all three of these women I think started the season with a BANG!

Let’s hear your thoughts about this week’s fashion. Which was your favorite?

DWTS Jenna Johnson And Jake T. Austin Write On Their First Dance, Rehearsals, And More

Jenna Johnson writes of how much she’s been inspired by her partner Jake T. Austin. So much so, she’s looking forward to doing a Foxtrot with him the most. From Just Jared Jr.

JJJ: How has practice been with Jake so far?

It’s good. It’s always hard the first week, I feel, where we’re trying to get the celebrities to understand that they have to try and become a dancer. I think they sign up for the show just being excited about it, but once you actually get into the studio, it becomes real that you have to perform a dance on national television in front of millions of people.

The first week of practice was a little rough. He was super stiff and nervous, but slowly and surely, Jake has been molding into a dancer. I watch the videos back of the routine that we’re prepping for and I’m shocked from day one, until now. I think the hardest part is getting him to accept that this is real and we have to make him into a dancer. He’s loosened up a ton and starting to get a rhythm and starting to look like a dancer. It’s weird (laughs).

JJJ: Which of the dance styles are you most looking forward to with Jake?

I’m really excited to perform a Foxtrot with him. Before we found out which style we would be performing for the premiere, I had put him through some other styles to get him acquainted with some basic steps and he looks amazing doing a Foxtrot. Just his frame, he’s got great posture and hold.

I always love doing beautiful and emotional pieces and I’m really hoping a heartfelt Foxtrot this season and showing his more elegant side.

Justin has also written a blog at Extra. He takes us behind the scenes of the premiere….

I have to start by talking about the energy. I could feel it in the air as I entered the lot with my family and paparazzi clambered for the perfect shot. This is all brand new to me, up until now, usually going unnoticed at the local grocery store with maybe the occasional fan photo or autograph, but this was clearly a whole new ball game.

The moment I walked on set, I knew this was like nothing I’ve ever done before. Everything, as far as my eyes could see, seemed to shimmer and sparkle while the smells of hairspray and competition drifted through the air with a palpable mix of anxiety and excitement. Left and right, were dancers doing precautionary stretches, while others chatted with producers members, getting notes and making last-minute revisions.

The real center of the action was the red room. This is where we hang out before we take the stage. Everyone is running back and forth from costumes, doing interviews, all the while, being reminded of the hysteria taking place just behind the curtain when protestors stormed the dance floor after Cheryl and Ryan’s performance.

Meanwhile, Jenna and I kept meeting in any free movement we could find to rehearse near the craft services table covered with some of the best looking food I’ve ever seen. All of which I was too nervous ever to eat. My heart raced faster as the minutes till our dance drew closer.

More at Just Jared Jr and Extra.

Update On Protester Incident, DWTS Re-Evaluating Security, Pros And Celebs Head Back To Rehearsals

According to Good Morning America this morning, the protesters who stormed the stage on Dancing With The Stars are out of jail now. They comment on why they did it below (rolleyes). In the GMA report, note how the show is re-evaluating their security protocols and they are increasing security.

Cheryl Burke is still shaken by the incident. A source tells People that “She can’t believe people can be so hateful and cowardly.” According to another People report, Ryan is suffering from an ankle injury because of the incident. Cheryl also comments that everyone is still shaken by what happened, but, they were able to rehearse yesterday and are moving forward. Be sure to read both People links for more.

This morning, I got up and headed to rehearsal with the other pro dancers. Everyone is definitely a little shaken up about what happened, but it’s good to be dancing and focused on next week’s show.

I’m sure security will be increased for Monday’s show but, honestly, I still feel 100 percent safe in the ballroom. We have an amazing security team who have worked on the show for years and they are incredible.

This afternoon I’m headed to rehearse with Ryan. I know it will probably take us a few weeks to put this incident behind us, but I know Ryan wants to move forward and he’s not going to let this bring him down.

We have a quickstep this week and Ryan did injure his ankle a little when the protester got tackled, so we’ll have to see how our first rehearsal goes. But at the end of the day, we are all just so grateful that no one was more seriously injured.

This is a family-friendly show that should never be the source of any hate. It’s about celebrating dance and making people happy and I look forward to getting back to that next week.

Cheryl also spoke with Entertainment Tonight.

Burke said that her first concern was that the man was armed, and with children in the audience, things could quickly go from bad to tragic. But security rapidly responded to put a stop to the protest.

“I looked up to Ryan and I could tell he was on the verge of tears. I could feel his heart sinking into his stomach – and to be honest, mine was too,” she recalled. “I started getting teary eyed and apparently was shaking… I just wanted to be strong for Ryan.”
