PureDWTS Season 25, Week 5 – Power Rankings

I’ve said it before, but here it goes again: I actually usually hate Disney night, and it’s not because I “hate Disney” or “had an upsetting childhood” (Twitter sure is full of recreational psychologists these days) – it’s because, like many a theme week, it tends to force the pros to shoehorn their choreo to fit songs that aren’t all appropriate for the dance they’ve been assigned, and the end result is usually…painful to behold, and a detriment to the celeb partner’s scores. However, I will say this: maybe my personal bar was set pretty low, but I actually found myself enjoying last night’s show, on the whole. Most of the pros (with the exception of maybe three) seemed to bring their A-game and actually churn out some respectable and entertaining dances, that still managed to stay true to the Disney movie they were assigned; granted, there were still some eyebrow-raising scoring issues and the general ick of Chmerlachey in its death throes, trying wayyyy too hard to stay on our radar, but all in all, I found the show enjoyable…even with having to watch it on a dodgy live stream on my iPad due to Monday Night Football.  For the first time in PureDWTS history, Heidi’s Titans were playing my Colts on MNF – so we both were on the live stream struggle bus, but thankfully, our server issues here at Pure seem to have been fixed by our latest update, so we hope more of you will stick around to chat with us now 🙂 Read more..

PureDWTS Season 25 Week 5 Interviews, Recaps, Scores, And More After The Dances

Well, Disney Night was another winner for me on Dancing With The Stars. The contestants and producers always outdo themselves. My fave dance of the night was Frankie and Witney! I never thought he could pull off a role like that, but, he did and so powerfully and sexy. *shock* I loved Mark & Lindsey and Jordan & Lindsay too. I also have to give props to Gleb and Sasha. They went out on a high note. That was their best dance of the season in my opinion. I loved her message all season and she looked beautiful.

Let’s review the scores….

Jordan & Lindsay 30 (10, 10, 10)
Frankie & Witney 29 (10, 9, 10)
Lindsey & Mark 28 (9, 10, 9)
Nikki & Artem 27 (9, 9, 9)
Victoria & Val 27 (9, 9, 9)
Drew & Emma 25 (9, 8, 8)
Terrell & Cheryl 25 (9, 8, 8)
Vanessa & Maks 24 (8, 8, 8)
Sasha & Gleb 24 (8, 8, 8) Eliminated
Nick & Peta 22 (7, 8, 7)

If you missed seeing the show, 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.

To start off with interviews and recaps, see ABC7. Also according to ABC7 next week’s theme is “A Night at the Movies”. Sitting in as guest judge will be Shania Twain. Also see People and Glamour for their recaps.

FOX411 has a recap and some fun interviews HERE and HERE on the night. In this take Drew talks on the weight he’s lost. Note how he flew to New York right after the show last night. Shew….

However, she’s not the only one who has downsized thanks to dancing; backstage, “Property Brothers” star Drew Scott told Fox News he’s lost 30 pounds.

“It’s a lot. I’m seeing my abs like I’ve never seen them before, yeah,” Scott exulted.

“But I’m eating a lot more now just because I need to keep that weight on. This is like back in my high school and college days. I could eat like a horse and never put on weight,” tall and gangly Scott told reporters.

“I want to keep [the weight] off where I am now. I just love this, but instead of going to the gym to do weight training, I’m getting all the cardio and everything I need here.

“I haven’t done cardio like this since I was a teenager,” Scott said, with dance partner Emma Slater by his side.

Because of work commitments, Scott doesn’t have time to go to the gym: “Literally, I fly out in an hour, I have to head to New York,” he said on Monday night after the “DWTS” Los Angeles taping.

Dancing with the Stars Season 25, Week FIVE – LIVE BLOG

Is everyone ready for a night full of ear worm music and questionable judging?

Gooooood. 🙂

Ummmm….sound?? This channel had it a minute ago.

Mark defying expectations…it appears he has no crazy costume. Opening number was rather boring.

Geez, it ain’t the halfway point! You still have 10 dancers!!

Looked like a mis-start from Victoria…. they were rather out of sync during a lot of the dance, just in little ways. Kinda simple and a bit boring…perhaps it’s the song.

Len is waxing poetic…but there really wasn’t that much to it. I guess they got the memo??

That dance got a 27??? Vanessa and Nick must really be in trouble if they’re working that hard to keep Victoria safe. Sad.

Okay, Maks as the 7 Dwarves is pretty f@cking funny, I have to say. 😀

That was a pretty waltz! A bit…sticky…in places but I liked it better than Victoria’s, and I think it was better danced.

Vanessa gets a 24, which is fair..and is what Victoria should have gotten. What is their game? I thinking that Victoria is the only Fam partner which still has a shot at this point and they want to make sure she stays.

Lindsey up next and looking gorgeous…and not dressed strangely. Who is this Mark? 😉

That was so far above either Vanessa or Victoria – beautiful. And the bridge in the middle was fantastic. The hold was great, and it wasn’t just Mark – Lindsey sold the SHIT out of that dance. She is Tinkerbell.

Someone explain to me how Victoria’s dance gets the same score as Lindsey’s? At least Len came through with the 10.

Okay I saw the beginning of that Troupe number 3 times…stream kept going back to commercial and it’s still happening. WTF is going on here?

Yeah, my feed is skipping. I’m going to have to take some action here. Okay, lost my feed…trying to get it back.

Okay, got a feed but it’d on commercial. I guess I missed Nick completely? What was his score?

Drew is up wth his V. Waltz from the Muppet Movie.

DWTS ruining children’ lives by putting them BEHIND Kermit!! :::sigh:::

Very pretty dance from Drew and Emma – he’s not a GREAT dancer, but the thing is he’s really enjoying himself and having a great time. That is more than half the battle. He did really well with that dance and Emma is really doing right by him, giving him stuff that makes him look really good. He is getting better every week!

LOL to Kermit’s little tiny 10 paddle.

Totally missed Sasha and Gleb thanks to my skippy feed…she got a 24. You all tell me if she was worthy of it.

Cheryl and TO up with Lion King next…

Pretty decent quickstep from TO…but the staging at the end was crap. I couldn’t see a thing. That could be my shitty stream but it’s pretty clear when it’s working well.

I think I agree with CAI – Terrell does seem different, like he’s clicked. He’s not the dancer that some of the others are, but he’s definitely in the top half of the pack.

Next week is movie week. Ugh. Can we just have fucking dancing??

TO gets a 25. I think the 9 was pretty damn generous, but if we’re talking about a night where Victoria gets 3 of them I guess it’s plausible.

Checking out Nissan Stadium and downtown Nashville on ABC and I must say it’s looking gorgeous. Nice town I live in. 🙂

Whoever mentioned Robert Roldan dancing with the troupe, you were correct. He is there and as handsome as ever. Gorgeous. Loved him on SYTYCD this past season.

Frankie and Wit up next with an AT. Witney being her usual self. Frankie is reminding me of Jessie in Breaking Bad. 🙂

Gonna have my wench by my sided. Bwahahahahaha…

Well, dang. Witney is really doing right by Frankie – the female pros this season are basically killing it right along side Mark. That was a damn good AT! I’m shocked, but I think I shouldn’t be at this point in the game. Boy is an actor. Great job!

And Frankie gets a 29!! That was a damn good dance! I don’t know if it was a 29…but it was really good.

Can we PLEASE have Lin Manuel Miranda with Jordan’s dance? He’s the one that wrote the song. He’s SEXY and so uber talented. I wanna see him.

Jordan and Lindsay dancing to a track cuz I recognize Lin’s voice ANYWHERE. 🙂 Excellent dance from the two of them. Stripped down. Is it just me or are the really good choreographers going without any troupe tonight? With the exception of Cheryl?

Good dance! CAI…the dance was going long?? Are you on crack? They don’t have control over that!!

Len: “Cuz I’m cool” LOL.

Mmmmm…not actually Jordan’s song, I don’t think, per the Music academy. Feel like it belongs to Lin Manuel Miranda.

Jordan gets a well deserved perfect score!

Nikki up next – the only person to not get a current movie. Kinda hosed. LOL to Artem in the pink skirt.

Do they really call her Coco or did the producers feed her that line and she went with it?

This is kind of a travesty. Nikki is capable of so much more and they well and truly fucked her over here. The song didn’t fit with the rest of the night, the dance was just okay – not her fault. To top it off, they label that a Jazz because they can’t seem to find a way to get legit dances with legit songs because they are so determined to work these damn theme nights.

:::sigh::: I’m just kinda pissed off by the whole “jazz” idea and then seeing something that looks nothing like jazz.

She gets a 27 and everyone on the stage is acting like they all know that that isn’t a 27 dance. I’m very irritated.

Here we go…

Jeopardy – Sasha and Gleb

Jeopardy – Frankie and Witney!?!?!?!?

Eliminated: Sasha and Gleb

Well, Sasha was one of my two choices to go this week – I have a very hard time believing that Frankie was actually in jeopardy. I think they might be saving Nick/Vanessa for jeopardy next week.

PureDWTS Cast Rumors & Watchout – Ayesha Curry Says She’s Been Approached to Do DWTS, Might Do It In The Future

I’m gonna go ahead and file this one under “watch out in the next few seasons”, because as we’ve seen, some stars spend several years as cast rumors until the time is right.

Cookbook author Ayesha Curry (who’s also married to NBA star Steph Curry) stopped by ET to talk about her new cookwear line, and gave this answer when asked if her husband would ever do DWTS:

Asked whether her husband of six years, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, would ever entertain joining the show down the line, Curry joked that someone in their immediate family is desperate for him to put on the dancing shoes. “I don’t  know if he would make the decision to do it, but his mom really wants him to do it,” she said with a laugh.

The 28-year-old mother of two shared that she’s actually been asked to compete on DWTS.

“I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, but I have been approached to do it and I chicken out every single time,” Curry revealed. “I’ve got two left feet.”

While Curry isn’t shy about posting videos of her dancing or grooving to music on social media, she insists she doesn’t have rhythm — though, we beg to differ!

But she didn’t fully shut the door on a future DWTS appearance, saying she’d “maybe” do it in due time. “Down the road… in a couple of years,” she said. “The only motivator for me, in my mind, is that I would get in phenomenal shape and that’d be a great perk.”

So it sounds like she’s not completely ruled out the possibility of doing the show – although I doubt that matters, because as we’ve seen, a “no” can become an “ok, fine!” if the price is right (looking at YOU, Nick Lachey). I wouldn’t mind seeing her – I think she might actually be the type of calm, focused partner Keo would need to make it past the first couple weeks of the season. Thoughts?
