Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 6 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

They finally stopped calling it a cold open, but still Tyra is a focus of the show. She walks out every week – why is this an event?

The show will start with host Tyra Banks walking out to the ballroom to “I’m Coming Out” by Diana Ross. In addition, judge Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert will dance a special Paso Doble to “Uccen” by Taalbi Brothers.

According to the Futon Critic, the November 2 show will feature a double elimination. Buckle your seat belts!!

Here’s who’s dancing what this week. Looks to me like only Vernon, AJ, Skai, Johnny, Nev and possibly Kaitlyn got dance styles in their wheelhouse. Everyone else could be in trouble. Except possibly Chrishell who got contemporary…which has no rules and Gleb can sex it up to the max.

Nelly & Daniella – Viennese Waltz (“Humble & Kind” by Tim McGraw)

Monica & Val – Rumba (“Have I Told You Lately” by Rod Stewart)

Vernon & Peta – Cha Cha (“Celebration” by Kool & The Gang)

Justina & Sasha – Viennese Waltz (“She’s Always a Woman” by Billy Joel)

Jeannie & Brandon – Rumba (“You Gotta Be” by Des’ree)

AJ & Cheryl – Samba (“Mi Gente” by J Balvin and Willy William)

Skai & Alan – Cha Cha (“Say So” by Dojo Cat, featuring Nicki Minaj)

Johnny & Britt – Salsa (“On The Floor” by Jennifer Lopez featuring Pitbull)

Nev & Jenna – Jazz (“Good Vibrations” by Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch)

Chrishell & Gleb – Contemporary (“Stars” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals)

Kaitlyn & Artem – Samba (“Sorry” by Justin Bieber)

Who Danced it better….first up, Nancy Kerrigan dancing Waltz to “She’s Always a Woman”. Justina is doing V. Waltz and I don’t think the slow dances are her strong suit. And I love Nancy’s dress!

I didn’t find “Have I told You Lately” on youtube…and I searched BOTH DWTS and Dancing with the Stars. 🙂 I also had trouble with “Celebration”…found lots of celebration related stuff, but not the actual song. I did find a very sweet waltz by David and Lindsay to “Humble and Kind”…and another gorgeous dress. Nelly is a better dancer (by a little) than David, but can he handle and V. Waltz??

I also didn’t find “You Gotta Be” by Des’ree. Keep in mind, me not finding it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, it just means that my casual search did not turn up a video. But, here is an excellent Samba by Jordan and Lindsay to “Mi Gente”…doubt very much AJ can live up to this one.

I found nothing on “Say So” by Dojo Cat, but I guess I should expect to since the official video was only posted on youtube 7 months ago. I also didn’t see “On the Floor” on youtube…I saw tons of Pitbull (obviously) and I saw a bit of Jennifer, including a pro dance choregraphed by Derek, but nothing with this particular song. Man, I’m striking out a lot…cuz I couldn’t find “Good Vibrations” or “Stars” either. But of COURSE I found Ginger and Val dancing to a latin remix of “Sorry” by Justin Bieber. I could barely watch the whole thing as I’m still traumatized from having Ginger shoved down my throat to this day when it comes to GMA and DWTS. Ugh. I feel very confident that Kaitlyn and Artem will do it better.
