Alex and Maia Shibutani Talk Derek Hough and Dancing with the Stars (Video)

I would love to see them on the all athlete season. It’s a shame that Derek can’t dance with Maia – but she won’t be a ringer if she’s not dancing with Derek….right? 😉 Here they are talking to Kelly and Ryan about how they went to Derek for advice and the possibility of DWTS.

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. :-)

Figure Skaters Adam Rippon And Mirai Nagasu To Dance In The DWTS Sports Edition??

You really have to wonder if some of the 2018 Olympians will dance in the new Dancing With The Stars Sports edition? If that’s the case(and it’s almost a given), how about Figure Skaters Adam Rippon and Mirai Nagasu? I think it’s a great idea and read below for what Mirai told Yahoo Sports….

The 26th season of “Dancing with the Stars” will premiere this spring and ABC has announced the cast will be made entirely of athletes. That means a few of the athletes we’ve seen starring in PyeongChang will probably be featured on the show.

Adam Rippon seems like a lock ever since the American figure skater became one of the breakout stars of the Olympics. But don’t count out his teammate Mirai Nagasu, who told Yahoo Sports that she wants a spot so she can compete against the friend and athletes’ village roommate she shares a matching tattoo with.

“I hope I’ll be there with him,” Nagasu told Yahoo Sports. “I’ve never gotten the opportunity to compete against Adam, but I would love (it).”

Who would get farther?

“I guess we’ll have to find out,” Nagasu said.

“Bring it on” I say. What do you say? Let us know in comments. To read the full article, see Yahoo Sports.

DWTS Junior Season 1 Pro Auditions Currently Underway!!!

Just when I had convinced myself the DWTSJ had gotten put on the back burner for the foreseeable future, we get our first glimmer of hope that this show is actually going to happen at some point 😎 Sasha’s Instagram story today indicated that he and Emma were on-hand in L.A. for the DWTS Junior pro auditions – producer Adam was also on-hand.  The video is pretty brief, and there are literally TONS of kids crammed into the audition space, so I was having a hard time picking out familiar faces – but apparently Rylee Arnold (Lindsay’s younger sis) is there, and I think I might have seen Manny Castro (Ruby & D’Angelo’s dad, owner of Dancetown studio in Miami)…also wondering if the little boy to Emma’s left at the beginning might be Artyon from this past season of America’s Got Talent…has anyone else clocked any familiar faces? I’ll keep a running list towards the bottom of the post as we get confirmations of who was at auditions…

 

Confirmed as auditioning:

Rylee Arnold (Lindsay’s younger sister, VIBE-er)
Brighton Brems (friend of Rylee’s, also from VIBE)
Artyon Celestine (AGT season 12, IMMABEAST)
Hailey Bills (Jenna’s niece)
J.T. Church (SYTYCD: The Next Generation runner-up)
Bryten Belka (Center Stage Performing Arts)
Kamri Peterson (Center Stage)
Victoria Podakova (one of Karina’s students)
Elijiah Geolina (one of Karina’s students)
Marcelo Fitzgerald (Center Stage, Kamri’s Latin partner)
Anthony Tatoosi
Emily Tatoosi
Ceilidh McSeveny (Center Stage)
Easton Brotherson (another VIBE kid)
Makeila Lawrence
Emily Dobson
Daniel Novikov
Kirill Vassilenko

Excited fans documented the performance on social media, one gushing over the “amazing show.”

As for the accident’s impact, one attendee barely noticed anything unusual. “They made an announcement at the beginning that the performance would be a little different, but you could hardly tell,” she told E! News.

Yay!! Send them some love in comments, twitter, and facebook when you get a chance.

DWTS “Light Up The Night” Tour Bus Involved In Accident In Iowa, Show Cancelled Tonight

According to E Online, one of the tour buses from the Dancing With The Stars Tour has been in an accident. The cast and crew are ok though, but, I imagine shook up pretty bad and a few might have injuries. Keep your thoughts and prayers with them all, ok?

Hillyard tweeted the news, writing, “One of the Dancing with the Stars tour buses heading to Ames for a performance tonight was involved in the 70+ vehicle pileup on I-35 southbound. Cast and crew members are okay — some recovering from minor injuries. Their show is cancelled for tonight.”

The Dancing With the Stars Tour features celebs Jordan Fisher, Frankie Munoz, as well as pro dancers Sharna Burgess, Jenna Johnson, Alan Bersten and Hayley Erbert and others.

Following the fatal accident, Fisher tweeted, “Thanking God for the safety of our crew. Thanks for the prayers and well-wishes.”
