DWTS13 Search Engine Round-Up – Week of 9-16-11

 How ’bout a brief little pre-show round-up, eh? 🙂

Val Chmerkovskiy

This was the 2nd most searched term leading to PureDWTS the past 2 weeks, second only to “pure dwts”. Rumor has it Vogue has a post in the works profiling him…so stay tuned 😉 In the meantime, you can catch Tristan & Peta’s profiles, if you missed them. 

Len Goodman who do you think you are

I’m not Len, but I’d venture a guess he’d answer with “Len f*cking Goodman, bitches.” I’m kidding…sort of 😉 But for those of you unfamiliar, Who Do You Think You Are? is actually a pretty cool television show that helps celebrities trace their lineage and learn about their ancestors.  Len is actually featured on the current season of the UK version, and his episode (which airs on October 5 on BBC) shows him learning about his great-great grandfather, Wincenty Sosnowski, who was from Poland and actually fought in the anti-tsarist November Uprising and was subsequently awarded with the highest Polish military honor for his heroism.  Vogue did a brief teaser post back in March about Len’s appearance on the show.  If you get a chance, I highly recommend trying to catch the American version of the show, which airs on Friday nights on NBC – the bf and I caught a re-run of Lionel Ritchie episode the other night and were downright fascinated.  So fascinated, in fact, that we started researching our own heritage – and I came to find out that my maternal great-grandmother was one of the first female pharmacists in the state of Indiana, and I’m actually 1/64 Trinidadian 🙂 Pretty cool, if you ask me.  

Is Lacey Schwimmer coming back to DWTS?

Ummmm yep, I’d say so…since she’s paired with Chaz & all.  But there was some question about whether she’d take a season off to “focus on her music career” *snicker*, so I guess it’s a valid question. 

Dancing with the Stars not practicing

My spidey sense tells me that 2 male celebs this season seem to have an aversion to practicing…and coincidentally, their names are only one letter apart…

Why is Louis/Louise Van Amstel not on season 13?

Because he’s pocket-sized and they couldn’t get Thumbelina or Thelma to sign on this season. 

Are Derek Hough & Cheryl Burke dating?

No. Wrong Cheryl.  Try Cole. And a loose definition of “dating”. 

Did Mark Ballas win an Emmy?/Is Mark Ballas growing his hair back?

No./It appears so.  See Vogue’s Emmy post for further detail.

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.

Susan and Tony Going Home – Cody and Edyta Safe

Cody and Edyta were barely saved on tonight’s episode of Dancing with the Stars. Susan and Tony were sent home. At least I can say that America got this right. It would have been really wrong if Cody got sent home while Julianne is recovering.

Lionel Richie sang “Good Morning” John Legend - Evolver - Good Morning while Alec Mazo & Edyta Śliwińska danced.

Lionel Richie sang “Dancing on the Ceiling” Lionel Richie - 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Lionel Richie - Dancing On the Ceiling while Cheryl Burke, Kym Johnson, Tony Dovolani & Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced.
