PureDWTS DWTS Jr. Internet Watch – Interesting Things on Twitter & Instagram

Ok, since my DM’s on Twitter have been blowing up with questions of “Did you see who [insert pro here] followed?!” or “OMG [insert celebrity child here] loves slime and [insert pro here] just posted a picture with slime!!! Are they paired up???”, I figured now was the time to pull the trigger on what I will call an “internet watch” post. This is going to be the place where you find all of the interesting, peculiar, curious, and suspicious goings-on between the pros, junior pros, potential kid celebs, etc. on Twitter and Instagram (and maybe Facebook, if anyone actually still uses it anymore) that aren’t necessarily concrete enough to elicit their own post, but are food-for-thought nonetheless.

First, a bit of a disclaimer: I’ve kind of said this already on Twitter, but DWTS Jr. is going to be different than DWTS (because these are kids, not adults), and thus I feel like I need to approach it differently; with that being said, I’m not sure spoiling anything that isn’t already somewhat common knowledge (i.e. the kids posting on social media, or anything other media outlets have already leaked) feels…ethical. Source has told me just how excited the kids are, and want everyone to be surprised at the cast announcement – and that gives me pause, because I don’t want the junior pros/their celeb partners to be disappointed. So with that being said, I’ve decided not to spoil any celeb names that haven’t already been hinted at or leaked by others – I’ll speculate along with you guys on things you see, but I’ve gotten a few of the kid celeb names, and they’re names that NOBODY is talking about; I’m going to keep ’em to myself unless some other outlet spoils them…and knowing this show, someone will eventually. Be patient 🙂 Read more..

PureDWTS DWTS Junior, Season 1 – Let’s Talk About the Cast (So Far)

Because it was pointed out to me that the comments are no longer open on the original post (which is supposed to happen after a post is over a month old – a nice little feature John added to prevent trolls from stirring up trouble on old, dead posts), and the original post was getting kinda long, I figured I’d move everything to a new post so everyone can discuss the recent developments we’ve posted 🙂 I’m not going to copy/paste everything from the original post, so for other details beyond the cast, go here.  And if you want to be completely surprised by the cast when DWTSJ airs starting in September, PROCEED NO FURTHER – SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

PureDWTS 2018 Emmy Awards – Nomination Predictions/Live Blog

Once again, this has snuck up on us 😛 I will try to do a live blog tomorrow morning once the announcements are up, but it may end up being more of a “this is what was announced” post with a short lag time…we shall see.

I think part of the reason we kinda spaced this is because it looks to be slim pickin’s for DWTS this year – the shortened (and simplified) spring season means fewer eligible routines for the Outstanding Choreography category, and with World of Dance‘s first season now eligible, I think we could witness a reduction in nominees from SYTYCD, and DWTS being shut out of the category completely.  Additionally, part of me thinks that we may see WOD and possibly American Idol also picking up a few nominations in other categories (Outstanding Costume Design, Outstanding Makeup, Outstanding Hairstyling, Outanding Lighting Design, etc) that might have otherwise gone to DWTS – I don’t think the austerity measures that they appeared to take with the All-Athletes season helped, because they seemed to stick to simpler, “safer” hair, makeup, costuming, and staging.

As for Outstanding Reality TV Series/Reality Host – given that DWTS/Tom got shut out last year, I’m not optimistic they’ll somehow elbow their way back in this year, especially with WOD and AI in the mix; my guess is that RuPaul wins Outstanding Reality Host again, and RuPaul’s Drag Race could be the dark horse to win Outstanding Reality Series, with the boom in viewership they’ve experienced since moving the show from Logo to VH1. But I digress…

Below are a couple of reports on the Dancing With The Stars tour bus accident in Iowa. Thank goodness the cast and crew are ok….and in fine dancing form as always too. E Online also reports that the show continues. More below…

Excited fans documented the performance on social media, one gushing over the “amazing show.”

As for the accident’s impact, one attendee barely noticed anything unusual. “They made an announcement at the beginning that the performance would be a little different, but you could hardly tell,” she told E! News.

Yay!! Send them some love in comments, twitter, and facebook when you get a chance.

DWTS “Light Up The Night” Tour Bus Involved In Accident In Iowa, Show Cancelled Tonight

According to E Online, one of the tour buses from the Dancing With The Stars Tour has been in an accident. The cast and crew are ok though, but, I imagine shook up pretty bad and a few might have injuries. Keep your thoughts and prayers with them all, ok?

Hillyard tweeted the news, writing, “One of the Dancing with the Stars tour buses heading to Ames for a performance tonight was involved in the 70+ vehicle pileup on I-35 southbound. Cast and crew members are okay — some recovering from minor injuries. Their show is cancelled for tonight.”

The Dancing With the Stars Tour features celebs Jordan Fisher, Frankie Munoz, as well as pro dancers Sharna Burgess, Jenna Johnson, Alan Bersten and Hayley Erbert and others.

Following the fatal accident, Fisher tweeted, “Thanking God for the safety of our crew. Thanks for the prayers and well-wishes.”

DWTS “Light Up The Night” Tour Fan Photos, Cast Will Be On GMA On Thursday

Cindy was able to see the new Dancing With The Stars LIVE “Light Up The Night” Tour. If you go to her facebeook page HERE, you can see some fun photos. She said she loved the show. So much so, time went “too fast”. Awww. Below is a little more of what she wrote to us….

My favorite section was the Disney tribute. Sharna as Ariel and Gleb as Prince Eric was the highlight of the tribute. Cindy also loved Sasha and Emma’s dance together. Lindsay and Jordan’s dance was another highlight. Frankie is great with the audience. He’s so funny and has a great personality.

Other tidbits Cindy told us about is that there was new tour merchandise she hasn’t seen sold before. Besides clothing, there was a Sharna and Alan blanket and a fun bumper sticker. Cindy also said the cast of the tour will be on Good Morning America on Thursday (I don’t see this on the schedule, but, be on the watch out on Thursday or in the coming days in case there is something recorded). THANKS, Cindy! You rock!

Review Of The New Dancing With The Stars LIVE “Light Up The Night” Tour

Amanda who writes for PureSYTYCD.com, has written a review of the new Dancing With The Stars LIVE “Light Up The Night” tour. This show sounds really fun! Check out Amanda’s review below….

As a Christmas present to my mom and myself I purchased tickets to the Light up the Night Tour. It was our first DWTS tour show we’ve been able to attend and overall we had a great time at the show. I realized after I purchased the tickets we would be attending opening night of the tour, so I was prepared to maybe experience some glitches but thankfully there were none as far as the show was concerned. Due to some sort of seating issue I missed most of the opening number due to people blocking my view…so annoying. Anyway, on to my thoughts on the show.

The show started on time and fun what I did see it was a fun energetic number to start the show. I also noticed thanks to the program they brought in another female dancer(Morgan Larson) to take Witney’s spot in at least the pro centric numbers in the show. Frankie and Jordan welcome us to the show and each share how much they enjoyed being apart of the show. They also didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to take part in the tour. Honestly they picked two of the best contestants to join the tour. I loved getting see Jordan dance in person and watch him blend right in with the pros. However, I think I enjoyed getting to see Frankie more. Frankie was more of the MC of the show but we did get to see him perform so of his dances from this season with Hayley, Sharna, and Emma.

So here are some of my favorite moments of the show:

-*Seeing the pros just dance. It’s always great to see them in their element.

-That Mandy Moore snuck in a great contemporary piece, featuring Hayley, Alan, and Brandon. There was also a number with exercise balls. I could have done without it but it was still cool to watch.

-All of the Disney section.

-From finally seeing Sharna as Ariel to Jordan and Lindsay’s Fox Trot to “You’re Welcome.”

-My favorite Frankie moment also came in the Disney section. His Pirates of the Caribbean inspired Argentine Tango with an assist from Emma(who has quite the costume change).
Esha moments: I felt like we got a sneak peak at their wedding dance.

-Crowd interaction…well it was just Alan that made an entrance through the crowd and dance a little with someone. Wish there was more of that.

-The Costumes…during one of the video clips they mentioned how many pieces were on the tour. I don’t remember the number but it was enough to make me say wow. Also, the girls quick changes always impress me.

Overall the show was fantastic and I recommend going to a show if you have’t yet.
