PureDWTS Season 29, Week 3 – Power Rankings

What can I say about Disney night that I haven’t already said in season 28, season 27, season 25, etc.? Not much. It’s the same 2-hour long Disney commercial that it has always been, with dances (usually poorly) shoehorned to fit (overused) songs, and costumes that feel like plagiarized essays – “yeah, you can copy mine from last season, but change a few things so it’s not so obvious.” That much I kind of expected – but I’m also dealing with the added complication this season of still having TOO. DAMN. MANY. COUPLES. It’s enough of a mental load to remember them all at the end of the night, and on top of that, we’re still getting really truncated dances – which is beneficial to some (marginal dancers like Chrishell) while detrimental to others (decent dancers like Skai, who seems to take a few bars to really hit a stride). With 13 couples remaining, next week will basically feel like a regular premiere night, and we’re already in week 4. We’re gonna have to start trimming some fat (and quickly) if we want to get whittled down to a 4-couple finale before Thanksgiving.

Tyrant was still up to her usual “look at meeeeee!” claptrap with her Minnie Mouse ballgown and absurdly long wig, but dare I say she may have dialed things back a just teensy bit this week? At the very least, the judges seemed to get more time to critique, while we seemingly only had to endure one dumb Tyrant question posed to each couple instead of multiple, increasingly painful ones that the celebs struggled to answer eloquently (or diplomatically). Don’t get it twisted – this show is still much harder to endure than necessary, owing to Tyrant’s presence (and Bergeron’s absence); but this week felt fractionally less painful.  Think someone pulled rank and told her to pipe down after last week’s sh*tshow?

So “that b***h Carole Baskin” got sent packing this week, and I hope that means I don’t have to hear any more bitching about how upset some of you were that “Derek saved her!” last week. You guys do realize the judges collude on who to save/ditch, right? So even though it appeared that Derek “got the deciding vote”, the three of them had already decided who was staying and who was going, and it was just a matter of what order they revealed their votes in to maximize suspense. And Carole had to have more than one vote to stay, yet nobody seemed as upset with Carrie Ann as they were with Derek.  My god, I worry about the intelligence quotient of the voting public these days *facepalm*. Anywho, it was her time to go – and I think that’s why they handed her samba as her style this week to ensure it, as nearly no one nails that dance and even the good ones usually just barely flirt with proper technique.  Carole basically tiptoed carefully through her dance – no bounce, not much rhythm, but I will credit her with generally keeping in step with Pasha. And I think Carole may have been saved from complete embarassment when Tyrant hit her with this gem of a question: “So how does Pasha compare with the cats?” That’s like someone asking me how Mama Spence compares to the spreadsheets I use to make budgets at my 9-5. I dunno – I worry about both of them making dollars and sense? Da fuq. Is anyone rehearsing these questions with Tyrant before the show, or is she just improvising them on the fly???

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 3 – LIVE BLOG

Question of the night….maybe we should bet on it. They are down to 14 couples. Where will the extra time go? Choose from the following:

A) Tyra talks WAY more.
B) The Judges all get more time.
C) Tyra talks more, cuts Derek off and he cuts a bitch.

Just kidding on that last one, of course…he can be cutting in his humor though. I would pay to see that one. I vote A. You?

T-Minus 11 minutes and I haven’t eaten dinner yet.

And the all about Tyra show starts. I thought she was going to ride the snail. 🙂

Skai is up first…love that she grabbed Alan’s hair to try to stop a fall. …Read more

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 3 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Disney night…another night that is also known as Tyrant (tm Court) Night. Just another cold open starring Tyra because this show is ALL ABOUT HER.

The show will begin with a cold open of host Tyra Banks and celebrities taking the viewing audience into their favorite classic Disney films. Episodes can be viewed the next day on demand and on Hulu.

Like everyone in the universe predicted, including Derek who tried to get the reporters to take bets, Carole is dancing to something from Lion King. Really, producers, at this point you’re just pathetic and sad. Derek was also correct when he said, “I feel like it’s all been done.” Yep, few surprises here. “Up” and “Newsies” might both be new. They also have the obligatory new Disney film they need to pimp – Nelly got stuck with that one.

AJ & Cheryl – Quickstep (“Prince Ali” from “Aladdin”)

Kaitlyn & Artem – Foxtrot (“How Far I’ll Go” from “Moana”)

Monica & Val – Waltz (“Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid”)

Vernon & Peta – Quickstep (“Be Our Guest” from “Beauty and the Beast”)

Anne & Keo – Quickstep (“Zero to Hero” from “Hercules”)

Justina & Sasha – Charleston (“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from “Mary Poppins”)

Jeannie & Brandon – Viennese Waltz (“Married Life” from “Up”)

Skai & Alan – Jive (“Almost There” from “The Princess and the Frog”)

Johnny & Britt -Rumba (“Reflection” from “Mulan”)

Jesse & Sharna – Jive (“King of New York” from “Newsies”)

Nelly & Daniella- Foxtrot (“It’s Alright” from “Soul”)

Nev & Jenna – Argentine Tango (“Angelica” from “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”)

Chrishell & Gleb – Waltz (“A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” from “Cinderella”)

Carole & Pasha – Samba (“Circle of Life” from “The Lion King”)

In the category of “who danced it better”, here are some examples of what’s been already done on this show using many of these same songs.

“A Whole New World” has been danced to a million times, but I couldn’t find Prince Ali.

I almost feel bad for Justina and Sasha. They have to live up to Charlie and Sharna, and this dance is fantastic – broken umbrella and all.

Simone and Sasha dances a lovely contemporary to “How Far I’ll Go”…

I may update with more later…YouTube is taking forever to load and it’s not my connection, soooo….

Derek Hough Talks Carole Baskin, DWTS and World of Dance

Sort of cross posted from PureDerekHough…excerpt is a bit different since this is a DWTS site.

This is an illuminating article from TV Line with what Derek had to say after last night’s show (excerpt below). He also says he plans to dance later in the season.

Hough told TV Insider and a small group of reporters after the show that it’s more than a bit challenging when he sees the clock ticking away with only a few seconds left and he needs to render his decision. “Carrie Ann [Inaba] was like, ‘Let me tell you why [I’m choosing who I’m choosing] and Bruno’s like, ‘Let me tell you why…’” Hough notes with a good-natured chuckle. “Then, it was, ‘Derek you have to give us an answer!’”

Fortunately, Hough, who first appeared on the show as a pro dancer in Season 5, knows the drill. “Hey, it’s my job,” he says. “I can’t complain.” Plus, he reveals, to his understanding, he won’t be the one called upon to be a potential tie-breaker each week. “It’ll trade off,” he muses, adding wryly, “but I want to thank everyone for leaving it up to me!”

—-

“It really was the progress that [Carole] had made,” says the professional dancer of choosing the Big Cat Rescue owner, who caught himself being lost in the “beauty and grace” of Baskin’s Viennese Waltz with partner Pasha Pashkov. “I had to look at it from that perspective.”

About his development deal:

“There are already a few projects that are coming up,” he teases. “I felt like it was a right fit with ABC and Disney for things we have in mind.”

A bit more about this season of DWTS:

Hough’s in no rush for couples to leave the competition, but he is hoping there will soon be more air time for him to go into detailed critiques that will ideally help couples deliver more entertaining routines.

“There are definitely moments where I’d love to say, ‘Choreographically, try this approach,’” Hough says. “Sometimes, that will be said off-screen [but] I genuinely want to help people improve.”

PureDWTS Season 29, Week 2 – Power Rankings

Welcome to “Dancing with Tyra Banks! And 15 Other Famous People But Mainly TYRA BANKS!!! Did We Mention TYRA BANKS??? WE ARE CONTRACTUALLY OBLIGATED TO SAY HER NAME AT LEAST 50 TIMES PER SHOW, SEND HELP!”

For anyone still able to hold onto the notion that Tyra “is doing better than we thought she would”, I admire your optimism, but I’m completely over her after only 2 weeks. Every time she asks an awkward (and usually frivolous) question after a couple gets their judges’ critiques (which are cut woefully short), or we have to hear her make every interaction about herself in some way, or we’re forced to witness her awkward attempt at humor in the “smizing” cold open, I just think to myself “Tom Bergeron would have never stooped to this level, and he could have gracefully hosted this show with a blindfold on and his hands tied behind his back…and it would still be better than this drivel!” Erin would have been worlds better than this as well…and Samantha Harris…and even one-and-done host Lisa Canning. About the only previous host Tyra has beat is Brooke Burke-Charvet, owing to the fact that Brooke wasn’t much more than a barely-sentient (but very pretty) potato. At least Tyra has a certain trainwreck appeal that makes her somewhat entertaining to watch…

…so with the new(ish) voting format, as Heidi mentioned, we’ve kind of discovered that it may actually be more beneficial for a couple to dance in the first hour of the show (as opposed to the second); I don’t think it was a coincidence that they seemed to front-load the show this week with most of the good dancers (Nev, Skai, Johnny, Justina, AJ) and left more of the weaker dancers in the back half (Charles, Carol, Chrishell, Vernon, Anne). And I don’t think the order in which the couples were called “safe” from elimination was a coincidence, either, despite Tyra insisting that the couples were “in no particular order”; the earliest ones called safe (Kaitlyn, Justina, AJ, Johnny) are the ones I think the majority of us assumed would be the safest, and the last three standing (Chrishell, Carol, and Charles) were the three most of us had in the danger zone.  I find the fact that Skai was one of the last four standing to possibly be a bit of a warning shot – I’m wondering if she’s dealing with Disney Kid Syndrome(TM) and is struggling with votes.

Other noteworthy stuff? On the negative end, I’m not sure the cameras panning to the couples sitting in their socially-distanced balconies after watching another couple dance is a good thing – more often than not, the couples were either making strange (potentially shady?) faces, or were messing with their phones; at least once, the camera panned to an empty balcony for a few beats. On the positive end, we are getting to experience the saucy troll side of Derek – the passive aggressive “Good job! That’s all I have time to say!” to Jesse after being rushed along from giving a critique by Tyrant (I’ve decided it’s her new name, y’all, since she’s the airtime hoarder) was SENDING me, as was this Carrie-Ann trolling TiK ToK he posted the other day that has inspired me to resurrect my long-marinating “lift policing” post for later this week 😉 Seriously, I cannot wait to see what other sassy comedic GOLD this arrangement sends our way – this is what happens when you hire the most decorated former pro in DWTS history to judge, after he’s had a successful run judging another more high-profile show on a rival network and he has absolutely NOTHING to lose by being a bit of a little shit 😉

So we lost Charles & Emma, which wasn’t terribly surprising – I think most of us had Carole and Charles as our bottom two; really and truly, as much as everyone seems to want Carole gone, I do think the right decision was made – I thought Carole was slightly better than Charles both weeks. Charles, bless him, I just don’t think he was going to improve much more this season. Sweet man, sweet partnership with Emma…but just not meant to go the distance. Read more..

ETA2: More interviews added below, a report on Tom, and more critiques on Tyra.

ETA: More interviews added below. Keep checking back.

Another week down, but, is it just me? Everything feels so rushed and the dances feel so short? For instance, the creativity and story of Johnny and Britt’s dance was just getting started and then it ended. It seemed like the case for most everyone. And poor Derek Hough having to cut several of his critiques. It didn’t seem fair, but, my faves of the night: AJ and Cheryl, Nev & Jenna, Justina & Sasha, and Jesse & Sharna. I’m not giving up on Johnny & Britt yet, but, I really hope they start wowing us soon. Same with Peta & Vernon who I really like too.

Ok, so let’s check out the scores from last night in order….

Skai & Alan 21 (7, 7, 7)
Justina & Sasha 21 (7, 7, 7)
Kaitlyn & Artem 20 (6, 7, 7)
Nev & Jenna 20 (7, 7, 6)
Johnny & Britt 18 (6, 6, 6)
Jeannie & Brandon 18 (6, 6, 6)
Jesse & Sharna 18 (6, 6, 6)
Anne & Keo 18 (6, 6, 6)
AJ & Cheryl 18 (6, 6, 6)
Vernon & Peta 17 (5, 6, 6)
Nelly & Daniella 16 (5, 5, 6)
Chrishell & Gleb 13 (4, 5, 4)
Charles & Emma 12 (4, 4, 4)
Carole & Pasha 11 (4, 4, 3)

If you missed seeing the dances, see the official You Tube page. You can see photos from the show at Getty Images.

And now onto some interviews and recaps. Don’t forget next week is Disney Night. Johnny tells us at twitter that he will be performing to “Reflection” from Disney’s “Mulan”
by his idol, Christina Aguilera.

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 2 – LIVE BLOG

Okay, so tonight I’m going to attempt to do what I did last season and that is combine the live blog with Dancing by the Numbers. TRY. 🙂  It ain’t easy, that’s for sure,  and I’m rusty….but I think I can pull it off thanks to my handy spreadsheet.  It will be tough with 15 couples, but let’s give it  a shot!!

T-minus 30 minutes…

A note about the numbers…to calculate more accurate numbers, I started with everyone getting the same score this week as they got last week in order to get the total number of points closer to reality. As the show goes along, I will input the correct score which likely won’t change the overall points by overly much. Using this method, right now, only 3,800 votes per million votes cast separate Carole and Charles.  Only 7,700 votes separate Carole and Chrishell…prior to dancing.  Both numbers can and will change, but if it’s very similar then you can easily see how Carole could stay over someone like Chrishell who isn’t as well known. What would help is if Chrishell does a great dance 2nd or 3rd, while Carole sucks and goes last.  We’ll soon find out!

The celebs are funny…but who told Tyra she is?  🙂  I see we have another week of Tyra’s catwalk where she’s even more important than the judges. Read more..

DWTS Week 2 Rehearsal Teasers and More Before Showtime

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 2 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Week 2, coming up. Note that it’s apparently airing on Tuesday this week.  Lots of disturbing things in the press release, not the least of which is this gem:

The show will begin with a comedic cold open featuring host Tyra Banks and the origins of her “smize” as she teaches the celebrities how to use it through the competition.

The only way this is acceptable is if the include Derek because he seems to make everything fun. 🙂 Next, a little reminder in how the voting is going to work:

Live votes (via abc.com, the ABC app and SMS/text) will occur each week only during the live broadcast in the EDT/CDT time zones (but fans in all U.S. time zones may vote within that window). Moving forward with each subsequent episode, the live vote combined with the judges’ scores will be revealed during the broadcast.

And, finally, who’s dancing what…in the order I had them in last week, which was often wrong. Not that it matters to anyone other than the person dancing last. Whole lotta cha cha and a whole lotta foxtrot.Love that they included a couple old songs that are probably a bit more in line with those dance styles. Justina goes from up tempo to the dreaded rumba. I’ll be curious to see how she does on that one after her standout performance last week. Carole AGAIN gets a song with a cat in the title. :::rolls eyes::: Neither clever nor funny, producers.

AJ & Cheryl – Foxtrot (“Ain’t That a Kick in the Head” by Dean Martin)

Kaitlyn & Artem – Foxtrot (“I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack)

Monica & Val – Jive (“Shake it off” by Taylor Swift)

Vernon & Peta – Foxtrot (“We Found Love!” by Rihanna and Calvin Harris)

Anne & Keo – Foxtrot (“Counting Stars” by One Republic)

Justina & Sasha – Rumba (“When You Believe” by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey)

Jeannie & Brandon – Cha Cha (“Roses” by SAINt JHN)

Skai & Alan – Samba to (“Miss Independent” by Neyo)

Johnny & Britt -Tango (“Poker Face” by Lady Gaga)

Jesse & Sharna – Foxtrot (“Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac)

Nelly & Daniella- Cha Cha (“Let’s Grove” by Earth, Wind & Fire)

Nev & Jenna – Cha Cha (“Dynamite” by BTS)

Charles & Emma – Cha Cha (“Never. Too Much” by Luther Vandross)

Chrishell & Gleb – Rumba (“This is Me” by Keala Settle & “The Greatest Showman” ensemble)

Carole & Pasha – Viennese Waltz (“What’s New Pussycat” by Tom Jones)

This week I had a bit of extra time, so I searched Youtube for some of the songs being used this week to see how often they’ve been used. Totally not scientific because it requires the song to be mentioned in the description of the video.

So, I knew that Poker Face had been used before on DWTS, but I had no idea that nearly EVERYONE has danced to it. Nick and Peta. Cheryl and Gilles. Andy and Sharna. I just remembered Derek and Anna’s pro dance. Seriously, search “DWTS Poker Face” on youtube. Then I googled on Derek and Anna’s names because they didn’t come up with the rest…and that’s because their Paso was to Bad Romance. 🙂 Geez…I knew it was Lady Gaga but sue me if I remember the dance and not the correct song. The point is…Lady Gaga loves this show. She even tweeted Kaitlyn’s dance last week saying she loved it. Derek and Anna are below cuz it’s my favorite. 🙂

Ain’t that a Kick in the Head was also used before…by Julianne and Helio. Just beautiful. It was also used on the DWTS tour, but I didn’t find where any other couples danced to it. Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, just means it wasn’t tagged in the video.

Derek and Amy danced to Counting Stars…and I didn’t find any others.

I knew also that Shake it Off had been used before…and sure enough, Bethany and Derek used it week one. What, are they recycling only songs that Derek used? 🙂 The answer is no: I just found that Sasha and Tonya danced to When You Believe. 🙂

That’s all for this week. I didn’t have any luck with several of them, so I decided that was enough for tonight.
