PureDWTS Season 25, Week 2, Night 2 – Power Rankings

So the bar was set pretty low for the show on night #2 of this week, given that night #1 was, for the most part, a snoozefest. Did Latin Night rise to the occasion? Yes…and no.  Ehhh, sorta…I guess. If nothing else, the energy level seemed higher, though there was still some really, REALLY screwy scoring (sorry to anyone who danced in the first  half of the show – y’all were gonna get hosed, regardless), and the music department still seems to be saddling some couples with some absolutely garbage songs that have an impossibly long intro for a dance that’s already been severely truncated. Bruno seemed to be relishing the opportunity to continue his stint as “good judge” this week, to Carrie Ann & Len’s “bad judge” roles; Erin, who looked stunning on premiere night, looked more like the lead singer in a Florence + The Machine cover band last night in a dress that still has me scratching my head.

Sad to see Debbie go, but can’t really say it was entirely unexpected – I had her in my 4-couple “lost in the shuffle” club after ballroom night, while Terrell, who had an atrocious rehearsal package that I thought for sure would do him in, actually had enough support (from Cheryl’s fans, I guess) to stick around. Better to be a jerk and memorable (or at least paired with a popular pro whose fans can float you) than be polite and forgettable, I guess. I have a feeling Debbie was probably not long for this competition, though – she just looked progressively more exhausted with each dance she did, and something was probably gonna have to give by week 4, at the latest. Alan had an admirable first outing as a pro, as well, and probably earned himself a pro spot next year (side note: it feels totally weird saying “next year” instead of “next season”, when referring to DWTS…gonna take some getting used to.)

Dancing with the Stars Season 25, Week TWO (Night TWO) – Live Blog

Okay, we’re going to try this again after struggling last night. Let’s see if that fix worked or not.

BTW, the Celebrity Family Feud with Sharna, Kym, Sasha, Keo and Lindsay was pretty entertaining, although I missed the first ten minutes.

Nice little opening number in spite of the Chmerkovskiy focus and lack of Ballas.

We start off with Nikki who is looking smoking hot. I hear you on the wine, girlfriend.

“You’re like a nice russian” LOL Nikki…as opposed to?

She looks a bit uncomfortable but she’s handling the dance quite well, I think. Some odd Choreo from Artem. Overall, I enjoyed it. Not sure I’m a fan of the purple lipstick on her. 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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 25, Week 2, Night 1 – Power Rankings

Hmmmm.

I’m sitting here, scratching my head, because I’m not entirely sure what I just watched. It was a normal show night, but with the exception of a few couples that actually came to play, last night felt like it was pretty half-assed – few of the couples seemed like they really wanted to be there, doing those dances, to those songs, in those costumes; and I’m fairly certain Tom was just sifting through Twitter and cherry picking material that fans were bitching about to base his (rather flat) jokes on.  The costumes even felt like an afterthought – with the exception of Lindsey & Mark’s butterfly ensembles, everything else just felt generic and thrown-together; for those who are fans of Rupaul’s Drag Race, we saw a lot of “shake-and-go” dresses last night – things that look like they were store-bought, pulled out of a shopping bag, and lazily thrown on and shaken out before hitting the stage. Was everyone just completely exhausted from trying to learn two dances as early as week 2, which is an absurd idea? Or were the couples told to focus on their more crowd-pleasing Latin dances? Whatever it was, I was pretty bored with last night’s show, on the whole… Read more..

PureDWTS Season 25 Week 2 Night 1 Media, Recaps, Scores, and Interviews After The Dances

I was really hoping Barbara Corcoran would be around for a few more weeks. It’s sad to see her go. I thought she was a hoot and I’ll never forget how she made me laugh. I haven’t seen all the dances yet (I’m in survival mode with my Mom being in the hospital), but, can we give it up for Lindsey & Mark? That has to be one of the most creative dances ever on Dancing With The Stars. Then again, I’ve always had this ‘thing’ for butterflies. I’m still trying to figure out why they only got 7’s for it? 🙁 ETA: I just watched the other dances. Wow, I loved Gleb & Sasha, Terrell & Cheryl, and Frankie and Witney too.

So, let’s review the scores last night….

Jordan & Lindsay 24 (8, 8, 8)
Victoria & Val 24 (8, 8, 8)
Vanessa & Maks 24 (8, 8, 8)
Sasha & Gleb 23 (8, 8, 7)

There is a really cute article on Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson (I think wedding bells are in their future 🙂 ). Jessica Radloff is back with her reviews of the night at Glamour (no backstage secrets yet).

Dancing with the Stars Season 25, Week TWO – Live Blog

So, who’s going home tonight?? If you want to hear my thoughts on the matter and you have some time to kill before the show, you can read Dancing by the Numbers. 🙂

Big mistake to use this song. Any dance can’t hope to stand up to Season 5’s opener.

Injured parties tonight are Drew and Vanessa – keep that in mind when watching them dance.

First up, Debbie. Like her attitude thus far. Read more..
