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

Is everyone ready for a night full of ear worm music and questionable judging?

Gooooood. 🙂

Ummmm….sound?? This channel had it a minute ago.

Mark defying expectations…it appears he has no crazy costume. Opening number was rather boring.

Geez, it ain’t the halfway point! You still have 10 dancers!!

Looked like a mis-start from Victoria…. they were rather out of sync during a lot of the dance, just in little ways. Kinda simple and a bit boring…perhaps it’s the song.

Len is waxing poetic…but there really wasn’t that much to it. I guess they got the memo??

That dance got a 27??? Vanessa and Nick must really be in trouble if they’re working that hard to keep Victoria safe. Sad.

Okay, Maks as the 7 Dwarves is pretty f@cking funny, I have to say. 😀

That was a pretty waltz! A bit…sticky…in places but I liked it better than Victoria’s, and I think it was better danced.

Vanessa gets a 24, which is fair..and is what Victoria should have gotten. What is their game? I thinking that Victoria is the only Fam partner which still has a shot at this point and they want to make sure she stays.

Lindsey up next and looking gorgeous…and not dressed strangely. Who is this Mark? 😉

That was so far above either Vanessa or Victoria – beautiful. And the bridge in the middle was fantastic. The hold was great, and it wasn’t just Mark – Lindsey sold the SHIT out of that dance. She is Tinkerbell.

Someone explain to me how Victoria’s dance gets the same score as Lindsey’s? At least Len came through with the 10.

Okay I saw the beginning of that Troupe number 3 times…stream kept going back to commercial and it’s still happening. WTF is going on here?

Yeah, my feed is skipping. I’m going to have to take some action here. Okay, lost my feed…trying to get it back.

Okay, got a feed but it’d on commercial. I guess I missed Nick completely? What was his score?

Drew is up wth his V. Waltz from the Muppet Movie.

DWTS ruining children’ lives by putting them BEHIND Kermit!! :::sigh:::

Very pretty dance from Drew and Emma – he’s not a GREAT dancer, but the thing is he’s really enjoying himself and having a great time. That is more than half the battle. He did really well with that dance and Emma is really doing right by him, giving him stuff that makes him look really good. He is getting better every week!

LOL to Kermit’s little tiny 10 paddle.

Totally missed Sasha and Gleb thanks to my skippy feed…she got a 24. You all tell me if she was worthy of it.

Cheryl and TO up with Lion King next…

Pretty decent quickstep from TO…but the staging at the end was crap. I couldn’t see a thing. That could be my shitty stream but it’s pretty clear when it’s working well.

I think I agree with CAI – Terrell does seem different, like he’s clicked. He’s not the dancer that some of the others are, but he’s definitely in the top half of the pack.

Next week is movie week. Ugh. Can we just have fucking dancing??

TO gets a 25. I think the 9 was pretty damn generous, but if we’re talking about a night where Victoria gets 3 of them I guess it’s plausible.

Checking out Nissan Stadium and downtown Nashville on ABC and I must say it’s looking gorgeous. Nice town I live in. 🙂

Whoever mentioned Robert Roldan dancing with the troupe, you were correct. He is there and as handsome as ever. Gorgeous. Loved him on SYTYCD this past season.

Frankie and Wit up next with an AT. Witney being her usual self. Frankie is reminding me of Jessie in Breaking Bad. 🙂

Gonna have my wench by my sided. Bwahahahahaha…

Well, dang. Witney is really doing right by Frankie – the female pros this season are basically killing it right along side Mark. That was a damn good AT! I’m shocked, but I think I shouldn’t be at this point in the game. Boy is an actor. Great job!

And Frankie gets a 29!! That was a damn good dance! I don’t know if it was a 29…but it was really good.

Can we PLEASE have Lin Manuel Miranda with Jordan’s dance? He’s the one that wrote the song. He’s SEXY and so uber talented. I wanna see him.

Jordan and Lindsay dancing to a track cuz I recognize Lin’s voice ANYWHERE. 🙂 Excellent dance from the two of them. Stripped down. Is it just me or are the really good choreographers going without any troupe tonight? With the exception of Cheryl?

Good dance! CAI…the dance was going long?? Are you on crack? They don’t have control over that!!

Len: “Cuz I’m cool” LOL.

Mmmmm…not actually Jordan’s song, I don’t think, per the Music academy. Feel like it belongs to Lin Manuel Miranda.

Jordan gets a well deserved perfect score!

Nikki up next – the only person to not get a current movie. Kinda hosed. LOL to Artem in the pink skirt.

Do they really call her Coco or did the producers feed her that line and she went with it?

This is kind of a travesty. Nikki is capable of so much more and they well and truly fucked her over here. The song didn’t fit with the rest of the night, the dance was just okay – not her fault. To top it off, they label that a Jazz because they can’t seem to find a way to get legit dances with legit songs because they are so determined to work these damn theme nights.

:::sigh::: I’m just kinda pissed off by the whole “jazz” idea and then seeing something that looks nothing like jazz.

She gets a 27 and everyone on the stage is acting like they all know that that isn’t a 27 dance. I’m very irritated.

Here we go…

Jeopardy – Sasha and Gleb

Jeopardy – Frankie and Witney!?!?!?!?

Eliminated: Sasha and Gleb

Well, Sasha was one of my two choices to go this week – I have a very hard time believing that Frankie was actually in jeopardy. I think they might be saving Nick/Vanessa for jeopardy next week.

PureDWTS Cast Rumors & Watchout – Ayesha Curry Says She’s Been Approached to Do DWTS, Might Do It In The Future

I’m gonna go ahead and file this one under “watch out in the next few seasons”, because as we’ve seen, some stars spend several years as cast rumors until the time is right.

Cookbook author Ayesha Curry (who’s also married to NBA star Steph Curry) stopped by ET to talk about her new cookwear line, and gave this answer when asked if her husband would ever do DWTS:

Asked whether her husband of six years, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry, would ever entertain joining the show down the line, Curry joked that someone in their immediate family is desperate for him to put on the dancing shoes. “I don’t  know if he would make the decision to do it, but his mom really wants him to do it,” she said with a laugh.

The 28-year-old mother of two shared that she’s actually been asked to compete on DWTS.

“I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, but I have been approached to do it and I chicken out every single time,” Curry revealed. “I’ve got two left feet.”

While Curry isn’t shy about posting videos of her dancing or grooving to music on social media, she insists she doesn’t have rhythm — though, we beg to differ!

But she didn’t fully shut the door on a future DWTS appearance, saying she’d “maybe” do it in due time. “Down the road… in a couple of years,” she said. “The only motivator for me, in my mind, is that I would get in phenomenal shape and that’d be a great perk.”

So it sounds like she’s not completely ruled out the possibility of doing the show – although I doubt that matters, because as we’ve seen, a “no” can become an “ok, fine!” if the price is right (looking at YOU, Nick Lachey). I wouldn’t mind seeing her – I think she might actually be the type of calm, focused partner Keo would need to make it past the first couple weeks of the season. Thoughts?

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

So, touching or nausea inducing? T-minus 15 minutes till we find out. 😉

I’m digging this opening. Kinda cool.

Mark looks dapper! Love Sasha’s dress. Love Victoria’s as well.

Frankie up first! And he gets Bryan Cranston – love him. Memory loss is scary. That condition is terrifying. Correction – I ADORE Bryan Cranston. Read more..

DWTS LIVE “Light Up The Night” Tour Cast Poster

And here’s your cast for the new tour! Very interesting lineup. No fam at all. Guess it did just fine without them last time. Question is – how often are they going to go to this well? Until it once again has no ticket sales? Have these producers never ever heard the saying “always leave them wanting more?” They seem determined to beat this horse to death – I suspect greed is a powerful thing. Very happy that the dancers have a winter job – but at some point one needs a break.

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..

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..

DWTS Season 25, Week 3 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Guilty Pleasures week. I seem to recall this was something of a trainwreck last time, although I could be wrong. What to expect is probably a whole bunch of the troupe plus a whole bunch of props and probably not much DANCING.

Winners: I’m sure it’s totally a coincidence that Sasha, Nick, and Vanessa all got Jazz. :::rolls eyes::: Well, at least others will save it for when the competition gets tougher. As for Lindsey getting Jive – I don’t know if it’s necessarily a “win” but that style seems perfect for her personality.

Losers: Nikki doing V. Waltz?? Didn’t she JUST do waltz this past week?? Hosed. And Frankie doing Samba?? He can probably handle it, but his first latin is the hardest one??

ETA: And the running order is starting to come out.  Cheryl and TO are doing alright, ain’t they?
