Hi, I'm a news hounds from way back. Since 1999, I've worked on Madonna and Enrique Iglesias fan sites....and now PureDWTS. I have always been a big music and dancing fan, but, I'm also passionate about photography, nature, animals, and spending as much time as possible travelling and camping with my hubby and our loving and patriotic doggie, Cash.

Dancing with the Stars Season 24, Week THREE – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

I dunno…is there anything that sounds like it could be worse than Vegas Week? I can’t think of anything.

Vogue: According to Maks’ instagram, Heather and Alan have a Tango next week. Thanks to Nathan for the heads up.

Court: According to Glamour, Nick has tango to “Poker Face”.  Cause you play poker in Vegas. Get it??? 😛

Vogue: Nancy has a Samba according to her new blog…and she’s looking forward to it. Be sure to read it here.

ETA: Lori tells me that the DWTS instagram implies that Simone has a Jive to something Elvis. Hence the question marks. ~Heidi

So shocked that Heather is dancing to Toxic by Brittany. LOL

Nancy and Artem – Samba (Song: “Shake Your Bon Bon” by Ricky Martin)
Phone 1-800-868-3408

Normani and Val – Foxtrot (Song: “Big Spender” By Shirley Bassey)

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 24, Week 2 – Power Rankings

To begin, here is a list of things I’m totally over seeing/hearing about on DWTS this season:

1.) Explanations of how Heather doesn’t have an advantage due to being a professional dancer.
2.) Production/the judges trying to angle for a showmance between Bonner & Sharna.
3.) Len generally being cranky about anything that doesn’t fit a rigid set of standards, and scoring to “make a point” as a result.
4.) How tired Normani is/how jet-lagged she & Val are.
5.) Charo generally being unruly.

It’s only week 2, and already, all of the above items have been beaten like a dead horse. Time to find some new material, production.

Beyond all those low points, I’d rate last night about a 6/10 – not bad, per se, but still kinda bland in terms of what I’ve come to expect from DWTS.  Front half of the show was a pretty big snooze, and they seem to load the back hour with the stronger performances. One pleasant surprise: Rupaul himself in the audience, out of drag, and rooting for Charo. I daresay he’s probably wayyyy too big a get for DWTS (and given my recent talk about demographics, probably not someone who would be extraordinarily popular with the main viewing audience), but one can dream 🙂

Part of me is a tad sad to see Chris go – no, he wasn’t a great dancer, but he wanted to be there, and I had no idea he had such a serious injury.  Definitely explains a lot about why he disappeared from the public eye for awhile, and Witney sympathizing with him showed me a new, more mature side of her. At the very least, he went out on a high note, with a fun dance that he did decently well with. Maybe we can look forward to a more in-depth Night at the Roxbury-themed dance from him at the finale 😛 Read more..

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, baker, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.

DWTS Season 24 Chris Kattan And Witney Carson Elimination Interview On Good Morning America

Chris Kattan and Witney Carson flew to New York to be on Good Morning America to talk about their elimination on Dancing With The Stars. Chris has nothing but good things to say on the show and Witney. Witney said Chris had her laughing the whole time, but, they really worked hard too. Witney also said she thinks Rashad and Simone will be in the finals. Thanks to @Idolxfactor1 for recording. Great interview.

PureDWTS Season 24 Week 2: Pre and Post Show Media, Interviews, Scores, And More

What another super night of dancing on Dancing With The Stars. They are all so good in different ways. Though I’m sad when we have to see someone eliminated. One thing is for sure, I’m a new fan of Chris Kattan. He was so funny and I love how he just had a blast. I’ll never forget his story too. What an inspiration to the world. To relive his dance and all the others, see Idolxfactor.com (this link works for International viewers too) or the Official You Tube site.

So, let’s review the scores…

Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy (Cha Cha): Scores of 8-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 32.
Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater (Viennese Waltz): Scores of 8-8-8-8 from the judges for a total of 32.
Heather Morris and Alan (subbing for the injured Maksim Chmerkovskiy) (Jive): Scores of 8-6-8-8 from the judges for a total of 30.
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber (Cha Cha): Scores of 7-7-7-8 from the judges for a total of 29.

Chris Kattan and Witney Carson (Jazz): Scores of 6-5-6-5 from the judges for a total of 22. (Eliminated)

Now for some media. First, see People for all of their new interviews after the show. FOX11 talked with some of the contestants as well. Below Nancy explains what happened in rehearsals this past week versus what we saw in their package and more….

After the show, Kerrigan told FOX411 that the rehearsal moment was overblown, saying, “That was like five minutes of the whole week! We’re truly having a ton of fun…most of the time, we’re just laughing.

“Sometimes it’s rough and frustrating in practice — but we were there for like four or five hours.”

When asked if she’s tired of being always known for the Harding-related incident, married mom of three Kerrigan shrugged to FOX411, “I mean, I guess it was part of my life but yeah, things have moved on way beyond that. I’m having a great time here.”

Kerrigan told reporters she’s had no further problems from the knee that notoriously got hit–but she did admit to having “spine issues, so that’s sort of annoying. I need surgery on my spine when I’m done with this [show].

“Actually, when I got asked [to do “DWTS], I was in the neurosurgeon’s office…but I just wanted to be here. During the little breaks, it’s a lot of stretching and stuff to make sure I’m standing up straight.”

The famed ice skater hopes to “become more confident, not be so nervous” by doing “DWTS.”

More at FOX11. FOX11 also has a great interview with Peta HERE. I love how her and Maks aren’t waiting any longer to get married.
