DWTS Artem Chigvintsev And Nancy Kerrigan To Meet Ricky Martin For Their Las Vegas Dance (New Interview)

Artem Chigvintsev chatted with Ice Network about Dancing With The Stars and the process so far with Nancy Kerrigan. The first few weeks have been like a honeymoon period, but, now the hard work begins. He also gives some fun hints about their “Las Vegas” dance including how they are meeting Ricky Martin. Read on….

Week Three will be very important in establishing the front runners for Season 24. The theme for next Monday’s show is Las Vegas Week. Kerrigan and Chigvintsev will be dancing a samba to a song by Ricky Martin. In advance of the performance, they’re going to Las Vegas to meet with Martin and get his input.

Chigvintsev isn’t revealing details, but he promises to keep things interesting as the season progresses, including incorporating the troupe into future dances.

“For a night like Vegas night, you want to make it bigger,” he said. “It’s entertainment. People need to be entertained. Whether it’s the great dancing or it’s the personality or a combination of both.

“I feel the show is improving every single season. What’s really cool about the show is it doesn’t just stay in the same spot.”

Chris Kattan And Witney Carson Talk On Being Fearless, Taking Risks, And More On Dancing With The Stars

Below is Chris Kattan and Witney Carson on Hollywood Today Love this morning talking about their partnership on Dancing With The Stars. Although different, the one thing they shared was being fearless and wanting to take risks together. I’m so glad he did the show.

DWTS Season 24, Week TWO – Dancing by the Numbers!

So, week 2 was…odd. Some things I understand – Rashad and Normani, Heather and Simone. But when you look at the scores, how on this planet do Nick and Charo get the same score? And how is Simone a full three points below the leaders and a point below Heather? Yeah, she had some hip hop in her routine, but so did Heather.

Anyway, there doesn’t appear to be a clear producer agenda just yet and that, combined with who danced in the last half hour really makes me wonder just who is getting the votes this season. It could make things very interesting through the rest of the season. They aren’t pushing the ringers super hard (yet) and that is…interesting. David getting the pimp spot is also interesting. Let’s take a look at the scores. 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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Maksim Chmerkovksiy Undergoes Calf Surgery

According to Maks Chmerkovksiy’s instagram, he had surgery last night for his calf. Photo below. Also below is the sweetest photo of Baby Shai sending him love and the best wishes too courtesy of Peta Murgatroyd. Speaking of Peta, she told Us Weekly on Monday that Maks is staying positive despite the circumstances. “His spirits are a little bit lifted right now, and he’s kind of looking forward to getting it (his calf) taken care of and getting it treated so he can get back out and dance.” Let’s wish Maks a speedy recovery and hope he’s back on the dance floor soon.

ETA: Sadly, Maks’ injury might be worst than he first thought. From ET….

The 37-year-old Dancing With the Stars pro star has been sidelined in the competition due to a calf injury, and will also miss week three of the competition. Chmerkovskiy’s reps tell ET that he’s currently in recovery, and the procedure he underwent to repair his calf injury went well.

However, a source tells ET that Chmerkovskiy tore his calf muscle “pretty badly,” and that he’s gotten a series of shots — not a surgery — to help recover.

“He told everyone he will be back in a couple of weeks but that isn’t true, it’s a lot worse than everyone initially thought,” the source says. “Doctors are insisting that Maks sit out for at least a month, but knowing Maks he will try and rush it and get back into the competition.”

ETA2: Another update. Thanks to Al for recording… Read more..
