PureDWTS Season 25 Week 2 Night 1 Media, Recaps, Scores, and Interviews After The Dances

I was really hoping Barbara Corcoran would be around for a few more weeks. It’s sad to see her go. I thought she was a hoot and I’ll never forget how she made me laugh. I haven’t seen all the dances yet (I’m in survival mode with my Mom being in the hospital), but, can we give it up for Lindsey & Mark? That has to be one of the most creative dances ever on Dancing With The Stars. Then again, I’ve always had this ‘thing’ for butterflies. I’m still trying to figure out why they only got 7’s for it? 🙁 ETA: I just watched the other dances. Wow, I loved Gleb & Sasha, Terrell & Cheryl, and Frankie and Witney too.

So, let’s review the scores last night….

Jordan & Lindsay 24 (8, 8, 8)
Victoria & Val 24 (8, 8, 8)
Vanessa & Maks 24 (8, 8, 8)
Sasha & Gleb 23 (8, 8, 7)
Frankie & Witney 23 (8, 7, 8)
Nikki & Artem 21 (7, 7, 7)
Lindsey & Mark 21 (7, 7, 7)
Drew & Emma 20 (7, 6, 7)
Terrell & Cheryl 20 (7, 6, 7)

To watch the dances again, see Idolxfactor.com (these videos work internationally) and the official Your Tube page. Don’t miss some behind the scenes videos at the official Facebook page too.

Onto some media, recaps, and interviews. First up, see People for their articles and interviews. There is a really cute article on Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson (I think wedding bells are in their future 🙂 ). Jessica Radloff is back with her reviews of the night at Glamour (no backstage secrets yet).

AH:

FOX411 interviewed some of the couples HERE and HERE. Below a take from the first link. Be sure to read both of them for more.

Lindsey Stirling and partner Mark Ballas earned 21 points for their quickstep which depicted the violinist turning into a butterfly. She told the cameras in practice that she had made it through “very dark times” in her life and elaborated to Fox News after the show, “This dance represents for me a transformation I went through and I was trying to depict the joy that comes from recovery. It was supposed to be a dance of hope.”

WWE star Nikki Bella was guided to a score of 21 by her waltz partner Artem Chigvintsev and said, “I was like, wow, there really is this elegant side of me and I got lost in it and I loved it and I want to do more of it.”

Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens garnered 20 points from the judges with partner Cheryl Burke. Rehearsal footage showed Owens getting upset and Burke giving him pep talks.

Their sexy foxtrot ended with Owens on top of Burke on the floor, which Judge Len Goodman complained was “too raunchy.” But afterwards, Owens and Burke were happy about their score – and the fact they weren’t eliminated after being in the bottom two with Corcoran and Motsepe.

In case I’m not able to post more interviews later, be watching Extra, ET, E Online, People, and Access Hollywood in case they post more.

Thanks for reading, Everyone and here’s to Night TWO tonight! ~Vogue over and out!

ETA: From GMA this morning….
