Dancing with the Stars Season 28, Week FIVE – LIVE BLOG

What do I expect to see tonight?? A bunch of contemporary and jazz dances that are called by another name…like quickstep, samba, V.waltz and foxtrot…and possibly even Paso, although his song actually is a closer fit that many of the others.

What else do I expect to see? A decent dancer sent home instead of the person who should be going home.

T-minus 30 minutes to show time.

Great opening – love how they featured Pasha and Daniella. 🙂  Male pros had the best bit. Loved that…best opening in quite some time.

Sailor up first with Cinderella – nailed that one.  All your expected Disneyification in the packages.

Took a really long time to move across the floor. But  she seems to be doing quite well. Very princess-y VW.

Len: Light and fluffy like a soufle – would have liked more in hold. Makes a comment about her def back next week. 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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 28, Week FOUR – LIVE BLOG

Well, folks, here we are at week four and the two worst dancers are still with us.  If you could be so kind as to VOTE such that one will be eliminated sooner rather than later, I would greatly appreciate it. I think you know which one. 😉

If you have some time to kill before the show starts, you can read Courtney’s power rankings.  I didn’t do a numbers post this week – seemed like it would be…redundant. If another good dancer is in the bottom, I may do a numbers post just so I have a place to rant.  Anyway, T-minus 30 minutes to show time. Don’t be surprised if I’m a little late – got small children to play with. 🙂

How is it that it went from 91 on saturday to 60 today?? Yeah, I know, Climate change – but I feel a bit robbed of fall. Hopefully the rest of the week is a bit better.

Leah is looking great! Funny as ever.  Len is looking a little red.

“Hey look ma I made it.” Eh. Bruno cha cha-ing out in front of everyone.   Hey, did they wax the opening number to that song? Why? Two fewer stars and they’re afraid of the show running long? Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 28, Week THREE – LIVE BLOG

T-minus 15 minutes to the Eastern/Central time zones live broadcast of DWTS.   If you are so inclined, you can start voting when we do based on last weeks dances. Don’t tell me you don’t already have one person you want to see stay. That’s right, you’re not voting for the winner tonight, just people you want to stick around for another week. So put on your big girl and big boy pants and VOTE. 🙂 Regardless of where you live.

In case you’ve been tuned out for the last week, like I have thanks to a short vacation, there are several things you can do to catch up. First, Courtney’s Power rankings – do you agree? Vogue has been posting a ton of media, and I’ve done a little numbers retrospective AND posted that it’s very likely that Ray and Cheryl are dropping out this evening due to injury. Whew!!  Lot’s happened in a short period of time.  Oh! And here’s what we THINK the couples are dancing to and when some of them are dancing. 🙂

Here we go….Oh wait, a Direct Insurance commercial starring Tonya Harding?? WTF?

Okay, the promised movie night opening. That was it? so not a big deal. Maybe there’s more. Opening pro dance….Finally Daniella showing that she’s the best dancer on the damn show. So under utilized thus far. Choreographed by Kathryn Burns – better than Mandy Moore, IMO. Read more..

Hi, I'm a news hounds from way back. Since 1999, I've worked on Madonna and Enrique Iglesias fan sites....and now PureDWTS. I have always been a big music and dancing fan, but, I'm also passionate about photography, nature, animals, and spending as much time as possible travelling and camping with my hubby and our loving and patriotic doggie, Cash.

PureDWTS: The Pros, The Judges, & Their (Sometimes Embarrassing) Music Video Pasts!

Because it’s summer and there’s not much else DWTS-related to talk about – why not get a blast from the past and take a look at what some of our pros and judges do when they’re not performing on the show? And in this case, the activity in question is appearing in music videos – with varying results.  Some of them are pretty cool, others are blink-and-you-miss-it cameos, and some…should probably stay buried forever 🙂 Let’s check it out… Read more..

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, baker, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.

DWTS 10 Kate & Tony Dance Comparison

After watching “Movie Night” on Dancing with the Stars, I realized that there were several songs used this season that were recycled from previous seasons.

Since this past week Kate Gosselin was eliminated, I decided to post up her “recycled” dances first. Not only Kate & Tony’s dances, but the previous celeb and pro to have danced them…

Below are two dances done to the song She’s Always a Woman Billy Joel - The Essential Billy Joel - She's Always a Woman by Billy Joel… both done as a Viennese Waltz

Season 6: Marlee Matlin & Fabian Sanchez

Season 10: Kate Gosselin & Tony Dovolani Read more..

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)
