DWTS Season 25, Week 4 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Week 4 already??? My, how time flies! I guess this means it’s time for “Most Memorable Year”, a week often filled with sob stories, contemporaries and other maudlin stuff. Hopefully it will be uplifting instead of draining this season. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t. Ya never know until you get there.

Winners this week: Anyone doing contemporary, except those with a partner who isn’t good at contemporary. 🙂 Nikki and Jordan should be fine….Nick? Hard to say. Last time Peta wanted to do a contemporary she got outside help. Props to her for owning her own weak spot. Sharna also ought to do well with Derek, having Jazz.

Losers this week: Anyone doing a dance with rules competing against all those who have none. Judges have already shown they have no ability to make this distinction when it comes to scoring. That said, those with Foxtrot and Waltz will likely be fine. Drew and Jive?? Has potential to be either a disaster or illuminating that he really has gotten the hang of it. Vanessa and Rumba? Well, I would say that she’ll smash it, but that’s a pretty close dance to do with someone you’re struggling with. Could be very challenging. Read more..

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. :-)

Val Chmerkovskiy Talks DWTS Drama and Brother Maks (Video)

Val and Jenna were at People’s party last night and Val was asked about Maks situation with Vanessa. To the point, he claims total ignorance – highly believable. 🙂 Thanks to Lori for the heads up on this one.

Maks Chmerkovskiy Issues Public Apology to Partner Vanessa Lachey

Some personal growth or professional arm twisting…we’ll never know. Per US Weekly and Maks’ Instagram/Twitter account:

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is expressing regret after missing his Monday, October 2, Dancing With the Stars performance due to undisclosed “personal issues” amid reported tension with partner Vanessa Lachey.

“As you are all aware, I had to leave the show last week to take care of some personal issues. I take full responsibility for my absence,” the professional dancer, 37, tweeted on Wednesday, October 4. “And want to apologize to my partner Vanessa. We are both looking forward to dancing for our fans next week!”

PureDWTS Season 25 Week 3 Media, Recaps, And More After The Dances

With the Las Vegas shootings last night, the producers of Dancing With Thee Stars opted out of any interviews after the show. So, we don’t have much media. But, below are a few things as well as a review the scores.

Lindsey & Mark 27 (9, 9, 9)
Jordan & Lindsay 25 (9, 7, 9)
Drew & Emma 23 (8, 7, 8)
Vanessa & Alan 23 (7, 8, 8)
Victoria & Val 22 (8, 7, 7)
Derek & Sharna 21 (7, 7, 7)
Nikki & Artem 21 (7, 7, 7)
Frankie & Witney 21 (7, 7, 7)
Nick & Peta 21 (7, 7, 7)
Terrell & Cheryl 21 (7, 7, 7)
Sasha & Gleb 19 (7, 6, 6)

Mark & Lindsey had the dance of the night in my opinion. I loved Jordan & Lindsay and Drew & Emma too.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.

People and Glamour have some recaps. Note this quote from People and the reason why Maks might not have danced last night. Geez, isn’t he paid to dance whether he has an issue with his partner or not?

However, sources confirm to PEOPLE that Chmerkovskiy did not perform by choice because of ongoing conflict with Lachey.

“There’s a big chemistry issue,” the insider says. “They both have big personalities and that’s not always the best recipe for a good partnership.”

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

One of the great things about DWTS is that it is a moment of fun in a very harsh world these days.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the horrific events of last night in Las Vegas, especially our “Charlie”, John.  Please consider giving blood, no matter where you are – and call your representatives if you, like me, pray for sensible gun legislation.

Perfect start to the show by Tom Bergeron. Pretty fun opening number, I must say.

Maks is dealing with a personal issue?? And no elimination this week. Which means we’ll probably have a double next week.

Fun package from Drew and Emma and a pretty fine dance as well. It’s quite possible that Drew has found his stride. And Drew is cuter than Jonathan. Read more..
