Report On Old Pros Returning For Possible Last Dancing With The Stars Season, Who Would You Like To See Come Back?

US Magazine has an article up on the Fall Season of Dancing With The Stars. Supposedly, they talked to a “source” who mentions this could be the “last” season of Dancing With The Stars and if it is, they want to make it the greatest by bringing back “old pros”. This is music to my ears. I would love to see Karina Smirnoff, Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, and Mark Ballas return. I’d also love to see the return of Maks Chmerkovksiy, Peta Murgatroyd, and Edyta Śliwińska. How about you? Be sure to read more at US Magazine.

The ratings have not been what the network had hoped for, despite changing things up with an all-athletes season last spring and Dancing With the Stars: Juniors, which wrapped this month.

The source also added that there are talks of season 28, set to air in the fall, being the last. If that happens, the network is hoping to bring back multiple original pros, including Karina Smirnoff, Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough, Mark Ballas and many more.

“They want to have a great last season if there is just one season left,” the source noted.

PureDWTS Season 27 Cast Rumors & Watchout: Christy Carlson Romano “Would Love To Do DWTS”

It looks like we’ve got our first campaigner for season 27 – former Disney Channel star Christy Carlson Romano has thrown her hat in the ring:

I think she’d be a great choice for the show – there’s nostalgia there from her Even Stevens and Kim Possible days, but she’s also a wife and a mom now and relatable for the DWTS audience.  And we’re still (relatively) early in the season 27 casting process – she might be a good last-minute casting if they’re still looking to fill out the roster, and it looks like they have talked to her before…so she’s on their radar.  I think she might be a good fit for Alan…thoughts?

PureDWTS Val Choreographs for SYTYCD; Lindsay & Rylee’s Sister Competes

So begins the yearly series of cross-over posts between DWTS & So You Think You Can Dance 😎 This week was the first of the live shows, and Val choreographed a cha-cha for top 10 finalists Magda (a Latin/ballroom dancer) and Darius (a contemporary dancer);

Overall, wasn’t bad – definitely better content-wise than the bulk of the stuff Dmitry has choreographed for SYTYCD, though there was some time-wasting and a bit too much “posing” for my taste…then again, I have found most of SYTYCD’s Latin & ballroom routines in recent years to be pretty watered-down, choreography-wise; I tend to think it’s because most of the non-ballroom contestants likely couldn’t handle a full-on Latin or ballroom routine.

Jenna & onetime DWTS troupe member Nicole Volynets were on-hand to support Val – and somehow got stuck in the nosebleed seats.

Lindsay & Rylee (and Mama Arnold!) were on-hand to support sis Jensen, who is one of the top 5 girls this season – she danced a samba (choreographed by Jean-Marc) & a jazz (choreographed by Mandy Moore, of course), to some interesting comments from Nigel (couldn’t find a video with them, but Google it and you’ll see what I mean):

Nigel had a rather convoluted explanation for Kristyn when asked about his comments about Jensen. Oh well – looks like a contender to me 🙂 More over at Pure SYTYCD.

PureDWTS DWTS Junior Season 1 – Junior Pros Start Sharing Adorable Pix with Their Mentors

I was told that DWTS was planning on formally announcing the junior pros on their Facebook page sometime today, but it appears as though that’s been scrapped in favor of the junior pros/mentors spilling the beans themselves on Instagram 😛 For anyone skeptical about the junior pro/mentor spoilers we posted – here’s your fact-check.  For everyone else – how stinkin’ cute are these kids??? I think Artyon/Brandon’s pic might be my fave – lil Artyon’s out here looking like a black Evel Knievel Jr. in his yellow jumpsuit, I heart him 🙂 #BlackBoyJoy UPDATE: Below is the video they originally posted on the DWTS Facebook page – until they realized they still had Kami Couch labeled as Makeila Lawrence…wuh wuh WUHHHHH.

ABC Announces DWTS Season 27 and DWTS Junior Premiere Dates!!

I don’t think we’ve reported this on this site yet, but I just got an email from ABC announcing their premiere dates for their entire schedule. Included in that is both DWTS and DWTS Junior. Mark your Calendars!!

Dancing with the Stars Season 27 will premiere on September 24 – I will be in Italy, but I think Courtney will be fine covering for me. 🙂 I will be home in time to do Dancing by the Numbers, tho.

Dancing with the Stars Juniors (Season 1, they say) will premiere on Sunday, October 7 with a 2-hour premiere.

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Valentin Chmerkovskiy And Jenna Johnson Interviewed On Their Engagement And Wedding Plans

This is fun. Entertainment Tonight spoke with Dancing With The Stars Val Chmerkovskiy And Jenna Johnson at the opening of Gleb Savchenko and Elena Samodanova’s dance studio. They revealed some sweet information on their engagement over the summer. Read on….

“I had no idea,” Johnson said of the romantic moment. Chmerkovskiy admitted it was a more “spontaneous” moment, planning the proposal only “a couple of days” beforehand.

But even though the actual act of putting a ring on it was sudden, he did get the most important approval of all before going ahead.

“I asked her father, obviously that was a huge thing,” Chmerkovskiy said. “With our tour we were in Utah probably beginning of May and so it was a month before I proposed. So about a month, a little more than that.”

“I was shocked because I’m very traditional and so he knew that talking to my dad was really important and he was very adamant about doing it in person,” Johnson added. “And so the first thing I actually said to him was, ‘Did you ask my dad?’ And he was like, ‘Yes, of course!’”

And this on the wedding planning..

“I just want to put it out there right now for all my friends. ‘You’re not invited. You’re not invited and don’t take it personally,'” he joked. “We’ve been talking budgets. We’ve been talking 2018. We’re talking like, I celebrate you every day. Why do we need to pay extra for another meal?”.

I love this couple. For more, see Entertainment Tonight.
