DWTS Season 24, Week 9 – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Well, I’m almost afraid to watch…and honestly, I’d rather be in bed. Coughing. Damnit.

First prediction of the night….they put Rashad and Simone in jeopardy after calling David safe.

Can Val do the 12 bars in hold? I think he better. Gee, Val, she would be better in hold if you would have been choreographing ballroom this whole time.

Typical Chmerkovskiy – takes forever to get started. The music is bad and it’s  resulting in a very staccato V. Waltz – looked more like a tango starting out. I do love the camera effect though. Because because it’s the judges dance they will all kiss ass – until they get to Simone anyway. I didn’t actually see the stumble the judges saw, but I AM sick. 🙁

9’s – seems about right. And once again, Val, STFU!!! It’s no wonder I have no clue about Normani, dude is a microphone hog.

Oh boy, Simone’s edit. Not sure what that means. 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. :-)

David Ross Talks On The Memories And Moments He’s Had On Dancing With The Stars

David Ross is never going to forget the the great memories and moments he’s had on Dancing With The Stars and he’ll never take them for granted. What a Guy! Here is more from the Chicago Sun Times.

“Baseball came naturally to me. It’s something I’ve been doing all my life,” the 40-year-old says. “This is so far outside my comfort zone. When you’re a professional athlete you pick up things pretty quick. But these [dance] steps are pretty frustrating all throughout the week. And you keep doing stuff over and over again and repeating those steps hoping you’ll get better. It’s extremely difficult and frustrating. … We’re learning two dances [a foxtrot to Michael Buble’s ‘You Make Me Feel So Young’ and a tango to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Castle on the Hill’], so it’s been six-and-a-half or seven-hour days, and it starts as soon as you’re done on Monday night; you’re right back [rehearsing] on Tuesday morning. And it’s all new choreography. It’s a lot of work physically, but you also learn a lot about yourself mentally.”

It’s that mental frustration that’s unlike anything he’s encountered in baseball, Ross admits.

“In baseball, you make an error, or you strike out, or you’re having a bad game, and it’s short. I messed up here, I let a ball get by there or I called the wrong pitch, and it’s short, it’s over. This [dancing] is extremely frustrating because it’s failure over and over and over again. [Laughing] Judging from the back of my baseball card I’ve had a lot of failure in my day. … But mentally it beats you down some days, and some weeks are tougher than others. I also think the song choice has a lot to do with it. If you enjoy the song or there’s meaning behind it, it’s easier to work through it. There’s only been one or two weeks where I haven’t really loved the song or felt a connection to the dance. [He says his recent paso doble was the most difficult.] … The payoff is on Mondays when you’ve nailed the dance. It’s memories I’ll never forget, just great moments I’ll never take for granted.”

Lots more at the Chicago Sun Times.
