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

So, I never did get around to my numbers post this week, dang it. The upshot is, besides S___, Hannah appears to be the only one who can be low on the leaderboard and not be in the bottom two. It’s quite likely that James is the same but he’s not been tested yet. Last week it was Kate’s turn to be in the bottom with Karamo and they were the two low scorers besides S___.

For S___ to be safe, he needed the following things to happen:

  • He needed 14.9k more votes per million votes cast than Kate, AND;
  • He needed 17.4k more votes per million votes cast than Karamo.

In the olden days of DWTS, those were pretty small numbers. Probably not any longer. And he obviously did that – but who knows who else he managed to beat. Here are the remaining numbers:

  • He would have needed22.3k more votes per million votes cast to beat Kel
  • He would have needed 24.8k more votes per million votes cast to beat Hannah
  • He would have needed 29.8 more votes per million votes cast to beat either James, Lauren or Ally

So, vote for your favorites and vote HARD. We’ll see who the low scorers are tonight and if the same thing happens. As of right now, everyone except James, Lauren, Hannah and S___ have seen the bottom two. Hopefully, that is NOT your final four, if you know what I mean.

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

Who’s the scariest of the all and will that person be eliminated tonight?? Only if we’re real freakin’ lucky.

T-minus 30 minutes…

Remember to include context when commenting!! Here we gooooo….

So this means that Len is going to bury someone tonight?  This is the best opening we’ve had in a very, very long time. (Bar low) Really good. There was a point where I didn’t know who anyone was. 🙂 Great job.

Michael Rooney did the choreography – props man.  Erin’s dress is gorgeous.  Wow, Jenna and Karamo look amazing! CAI is Maleficent – apropos.

Kel up first with Rocky Horror.  Jive to Time Warp. Doesn’t seem like a good fit but okay.

I don’t get the staging at all but he’s holding up well so far. Got a bit off time for just a moment but recovered well.  All in all, good dance!! Don’t get the outfits either, for that matter. Maybe there is copyright issues?

Len: Terrific way to start off the evening.

Bruno: I love a cult classic. Taken it and reimagined it. Surprising treat.

CAI: (OMG) That was incredible. Off the hook. Tight and clean.

Scores: 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27. New camera people please. Jesus.

Heh. Promo suggests that Len split them into teams. Which means the producers split them into teams. We’ll see.

James and Emma up next with the V. Waltz.  He does have a nice booty.

Emma looks amazing. Beautiful dance so far, love the concept. Excellent job. Particularly liked the ending. 🙂

Bruno: Prince of Darkness. Totally in command. Such a powerful performance. Perfect until he went wrong. James says he slipped on the fog.

CAI: Perfection until the mishap.

Len: Honestly you put a spell on me. Dance was terrific. Lovely movement. Was gonna be a 10 until the incident(s).  Lovely mix of tricks and treats.

He should win this season…I’m just not confident he will.

Scores: 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27.

Ally up next with Tango. Dancing to Sweeter than Psycho. The singer is not doing well.  the Tango on the other hand is pretty good, but her head looks weird…like it’s too far back in the wrong way? Can’t explain it.

CAI: On point. Ridiculously good. What I loved most is you push yourself right up to the edge. Lost focus at one point.

Len: Last week nearly dead, so glad you came back to life with a terrific tango. Lots of proper dancing.  Len noticed the head thing too. It wasn’t just me.

Bruno: Premiere league tango. Full of content done correctly.

She was good, but I suspect she’ll get 9s that I’m not sure I agree with. That said, maybe the judges have wised up.

Scores: 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27. I sense a theme.

I worry for Hannah as she could barely walk on her feet as of yesterday. Eek. Let’s hope for the best.

One of the pros messed up. Not sure how this is Halloween. But she’s doing quite well for someone who couldn’t walk the other day. Over all, kind of a weird theme with weird music. Think she got hosed on that. Her dancing was good, but dang.

Len: Bad girl is a terrific dancer.

Bruno: Nothing scary about that. Most beautiful, friendliest zombie ever.  Things she needs to punch it more.

CAI: Crisp and clear, but agree with Bruno. Something lacking in her performance.  You close off to the dance.

Good lord she is talking so much and so fast!!

Scores: 8, 9, 8 for a 25 out of 30.

NUMBERS UPDATE: So far, there are only about 10k votes between the top 3 and Hannah. Everything is going to hinge on how badly they over score Lindsay’s partner.

Karamo is up next with his Paso to Destiny’s Child.

He’s handling this dance very well, still a tiny bit awkward in places but he’s vastly improved.  And he just gets better the farther he gets into the dance. The make up is AMAZING.

Bruno: The bringer of the apocalypse. Went wrong on the one foot once. Don’t lose the shaping due to the power. Well done.

CAI: Like a sonic boom. You opened  up and let it out.

Len: firstly may I congratulate hair, makeup and wardrobe. Shaping has to be exaggerated, having said that is the attack and he did very well.

Ugh. Boy Bands and Girls Groups next week. Two dances each.

Scores: 9, 8, 8 for a total of 25 out of 30 – tied with Hannah.

Lauren up next with an AT. Doesn’t seem sharp enough but I keep getting distracted by other stuff.  Sorry. Mid-show fade out. Seemed like it was pretty good though.

CAI: Love Halloween. You slipped right there but you went with it and made it a moment.

Len: Not sure what lola wants but saw plenty of what Lennie wants. AT characterization. Sparked off each other. Well done.

Bruno: Can I have a bite please. Your performance was great.

So Lauren gets the pity party two weeks in a row…

Scores: 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27 out of 30.

S___ and Lindsay next.  Monster mash and Frankenstein – pretty slow Jive, of course.

Can’t go wrong with your partner laying down. Oh, I was wrong. 🙂 He’s not moving  at all for half the dance. I mean, literally, feet glued to the floor. He’s pigeon toed when he does move.

Len: This wasn’t super and it wasn’t really natural either. Lacked content, but I must say what I like that you always come out and try the hardest.

Bruno: Monster part was perfect. But the jive was 6 feet behind (I think he means under).  Timing is not your strong suit.

CAI: A dance only your mummies could love. Backsliding this week.

If Len gives him a fucking 7 just for showing up I may throw something at my TV.

Scores: 6, 6, 6 for a total of 18 out of 30. Still too generous.

NUMBERS UPDATE: Made some guesses on the team dances with James’ team doing 26 and Kate’s team doing 24, and Kate getting a 27 in her solo dance. With those numbers, S___ needs 17.5k to get past Karamo, 22.4k to get past Kel/Hannah/Kate and  27.2k to get past the leaders. Scary.

Kate up next with the rumba.

She seemed like she was rushing it there at the beginning, and she’s so somber. I suspect I just saw a mistake but they were only showing her from chest up.  A couple lifts in there, one really obvious at the end of the dance. Not bad, but not fantastic.

Bruno: That was a beautiful and haunting rumba. Capture our attention. Lost a bit of fluidity. Better shoulders.

CAI: There was a tiny mishap, but what I love most is seeing a woman so confident. Lost connection at one point.

Len: Compliments to Pasha. (agreed) What you’ve done, is you’ve inspired other professionals to give proper authentic routines. Not normal amount of confidence, Kate. Stretch legs a bit more. Knockout performance.

Scores: 8, 8, 8 for a total of 24 out of 30.  I wouldn’t have gone that low, although I didn’t care too much for the dance.

NUMBERS UPDATE: Of course, everything hinges on the team dances, but as I said I guessed James team getting a 26 and Kate’s team getting a 24. If that happens, this will be the leader board.

Sean vs. Kate 1.50% 15,000
Sean vs. Karamo 1.75% 17,500
Sean vs. Kel/Hannah 2.25% 22,500
Sean vs. James/Ally/Lauren 2.75% 27,500

This could get spooky. Who knows what will happens. I don’t think Kate is in danger, I think it’s more likely to be Karamo and…someone. But we’ll know.

You mean these lopsided teams were by random draw??? How on earth…

Team Trick is up first. Great costumes. Emma counting. LOL. Celebs doing great on their own.  Well, I thought that was really good!  Seemed like they were mostly in sync, lots of good dancing. Harkened back to what Derek and Mark might have done.

Len: lovely mix of tango, VW all together with fantastic, interesting choreography. Admiration for the celebs. Well done.

Bruno: I loved it as well. Dramatic and elegant. Bringing out the personality.

CAI: I loved it. Matching lines, really powerful. Kudos to Hannah.

Scores: 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27. Awww…Hannah getting emotional.

Team Treat is up with Sweet Dreams by Beyonce.

Love the costumes. Love the start. Very clever way to keep the men from dancing for a long period of time. Very simple choreography. Pretty in sync but not even close to the first team. It just seems kinda slow and low impact. Much stomping by S___.

Bruno: yelling the counts.  Nightmarishly entertaining. Not everyone was always on time, but I really love the effort.

CAI: Love the concept, MVP to Kate for dancing with the women. S___ almost kept up.

Len: Liked the fun of it. You enjoyed. Wonderful entertainment and congratulations.

Scores: 8, 8, 8 for a total of 24 for team treat.  Called that one right on target.

Here we goooooo…..

SAFE: Ally and Sasha

SAFE: Hannah and Alan

SAFE: Kel and Witney

SAFE: James and Emma

SAFE: Lauren and Gleb

SAFE: S___ and Lindsay (fuck)

CAI – Karamo

Bruno – Kate

Len – Kate

Karamo is one hell of a class act.  Going out in classy style. It gives me a sad, though. Stay tuned for a numbers post this week. My preliminary theory is that so few people are voting that S___ is probably out in front, possibly with Hannah and James. The low number of votes is why the bottom two changes every damn week.  Kate was at the bottom of the leader board, with S___ and Karamo, so they’re in the bottom. Hannah was near the bottom last week, yet wasn’t in the bottom two. Hence, I think she’s up there with S___ and likely James.  More later.

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

No idea what to expect tonight, other than a very disappointing elimination.  You?

T-minus 30 minutes…

Remember to include context when commenting!! Here we gooooo….

Okay….that was weird. I don’t get it. What am I missing? Why did James run away? Where was Hannah (and Karamo?)?

Ally going first tonight! CAI talking about how amazing she’s been. Agreed. She’s very cute. I like her.  Quickstep to “Take on Me” by Aha.  Love this song. Remember when the video came out.

They were off time that whole opening. That production was a bad idea. Seems like she gets it back. Liked that run down the center. Mis-step after that big circle thing they did. Should not be 9s, but maybe 8s. Read more..

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..

Dancing with the Stars Season 28, Week FIVE – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Disney week. I can’t say it’s my favorite week. Too much production, too much BS.  But since this season has been remarkably low on all that stuff so far, perhaps I will enjoy it more.  We’ll see. Here’s what the press release says we can expect this week:

For the first time in the show’s history, the opening dance number will take place at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, in a pre-recorded segment and will feature the cast on Main Street, U.S.A. and in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, choreographed by the acclaimed Zach Woodlee (“Grease Live” and “Glee”). During the show, the celebrity contestants and their pros take over the Happiest Place on Earth as they seek inspiration for their dance numbers at Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. One lucky “Dancing with the Stars” couple will even get to travel to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and take the controls of the Millennium Falcon. From thrill attractions to favorite Disney characters and more, this will be a “Disney Night” to remember.

Vying for America’s vote, each couple will dance to a variety of beloved Disney songs including “We’re All in This Together” from “High School Musical,” “Under the Sea” from “The Little Mermaid,” “A Spoonful of Sugar” from “Mary Poppins,” “Beauty and the Beast” from the live-action “Beauty and the Beast,” and “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from the live-action “The Lion King,” among others.

In addition, a special dance inspired by new song “Into the Unknown” from “Disney’s Frozen II” will be featured. And special looks from Disney+’s upcoming “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” and live-action “Lady and the Tramp” will be shown.

Here’s who’s dancing which dances…ugh, the first contemporary and jazz of the season. At least Ally and Kate got them, along with Kel. This I can live with. 🙂 What do those whining about Hannah’s dances have to say about that, eh?? That argument no longer holds. Sorry not sorry. Foxtrot should suit her, though. James should do fantastic with the Paso. Conversely, Lindsay is going to have to work a REAL miracle this week. I love her, but I hope it doesn’t happen. Sailor should do well, but I worry about Lauren and Karamo with the Samba. Hopefully their partners get it together for them.

ETA: See below for what is apparently the full song list. Hmmm…Hannah was sitting on Aladdin’s rug with Alan, but she also was shown with a light saber.  And she said “someone” is going to be a princess. I would hope her and not Alan. 🙂  But the Aladdin song and the Beauty and the Beast song are both crap for a foxtrot.  Sailor met Cinderella, apparently, which would imply the Cinderella song.  Ally was also in the Beast’s library – and that song would work for contemporary. And they would so totally make Kate do Mary Poppins. And because the producers are who they are, I’m guessing Karamo gets the Lion King song.  My GUESSES are below.  

ETA2: Just saw Lauren’s tweet with mermaids in it. 🙂

Ally and Sasha – Contemporary (“Beauty and the Beast” from Beauty and the Beast)

Kel and Witney – Jazz (“We’re All in This Together” from High School Musical)

S___ and Lindsay – Quickstep (“You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from Toy Story 4)

Kate and Pasha – Jazz (“A Spoonful of Sugar” from Mary Poppins)

James and Emma – Paso doble (“He’s a Pirate” from Pirates of the Caribbean)

Hannah and Alan – Foxtrot (“A Whole New World” from Aladdin)

Sailor and Val – Viennese Waltz (“A Dream is A Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella)

Lauren and Gleb – Samba (“Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid)

Karamo and Jenna – Samba (“I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from The Lion King)

Thanks to R2M in the comments for the heads up on a Disney fansite that claims to have the complete song list – see below:

  • A Whole New World from Aladdin (Zayn and Zhavia)
  • A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes from Cinderella
  • Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid
  • A Spoonful of Sugar from Mary Poppins
  • Beauty and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast (John Legend & Ariana Grande)
  • You’ve Got a Friend in Me from Toy Story 4
  • We’re All in This Together from High School Musical
  • I Just Can’t Wait to Be King from The Lion King (2019)
  • He’s a Pirate from Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

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..

New Promo For Dancing With The Stars Season 28 Week 4

Are you ready for another night of dancing? Below is a new fun promo. Also, don’t forget to vote first thing for all of your favorites. Stay tuned for Miss Heidi’s Live Blog for fun commentary.

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. To read more on me and view my photos (including some dancers from DWTS), see Lisa Kay Photography. You can also follow me at: Voguerista Twitter & Voguerista Soundcloud.

PureDWTS Season 28, Week 3: Power Rankings

Well I obviously didn’t get to watch the show in real time (had a 3-hour delay in Montrose on my way back from sis’ wedding Monday night, and did a mad dash through the Dallas airport to make my connection back to Indy), and due to 500+ emails I had from 1 week away from the office, I didn’t even get to watch the show until Wednesday evening – and then I was dealing with a freshly cortisone’d wrist on Thursday evening, so typing up the power rankings wasn’t really in the cards until the weekend.  Forgive me? 🙂 I promise the week 4 rankings will be done in a far more timely fashion…

…so I’d say week was generally an improvement over week 2, and I’d credit that to the judges (Len in particular) taking a much softer tack than they have the first two weeks of the season.  At times, judging from what the three of them were saying, it was almost as if they had read my rankings last week…right down to some of the word usage (more on that later). Anywho, it seemed like just about everyone (even Lamar!) had fun this week, which made for a much easier-to-digest show – however, I feel like the show’s still stuck in a bit of an identity crisis. Soooo, do we have a troupe or nah? ‘Cause there seemed to be quite a few extra dancers this week (more than we ever had in the troupe) getting pretty regularly utilized, and a few of them even were former troupe members (I definitely saw Morgan and Vlad in the mix…did I miss anyone else?) Oh, and the fact that these extra dancers brought about more “mucking about” in most of the routines they were in makes me question just how strictly the whole “content, content, content” edict is being emphasized and enforced. Sure, it was Movie Night, which tends to give a bit more leeway for extraneous stuff…but are we focusing on content, or focusing on production value? Do we have a troupe or not have a troupe? Show’s still a bit wishy-washy on what it wants to be, methinks…

…and then there was the whole matter of Ray’s withdrawal from the competition.  Sure, we already saw it coming before Monday night, but still…*sigh* they (controversially) saved Ray over Mary last week, only for Ray to withdraw anyway this week. No, there’s nothing technically illegal/against the rules about it, but like Tamar dipping out of season 21 the day after Alexa (who reeeeeally wanted to be there) got eliminated, it was just a bit of a d*ck move. Seems to me like Ray’s foot problems were not a recent thing, and I highly doubt they only just started giving him a lot of trouble in week 3.  Sure, one could probably argue that Ray would have probably ended up in the bottom 2 again this week (assuming he had actually danced), and probably wouldn’t have been saved over anyone except Lamar (and maybe a certain other marginal male celeb), but still…as much as I love Shad and getting to see glimpses of his progress in his dancing pursuits post-DWTS, I would have much rather seen a third week of Mary over two mediocre weeks of Ray and a week 3 dance performed by the champ from 4 seasons ago.

Dancing with the Stars Season 28, Week FOUR – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Can’t believe it’s week four already!!  Dang, where does the time go??  It’ll be great to see Leah Remini again – who will she smack with the microphone this time? Or her 7 paddle…Here’s what the press release says:

Vying for America’s vote, each couple will dance to a variety of hit and well-known songs including Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary,” Shawn Mendes’ “If I Can’t Have You,” Seal’s “Kiss from a Rose,” Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight,” and Queen’s “Somebody to Love,” among others.

The show will open with the couples entering the ballroom to “Hey Look Ma, I Made It,” by Panic! At the Disco. In addition, as part of ABC’s “Cast from the Past” week, where iconic TV show and film talent reunite in episodes on the network’s comedies and dramas, “Dancing” season 17 alumni Leah Remini will be a guest judge for the very first time.

I think it’s about time that he who shall not be named get quickstep. Let’s see if he can stomp his way through that one. Don’t forget to vote as much as you can for your favorite. We don’t want a repeat of last season. At least, I don’t. 🙂 Who cares if the show loses another million viewers next season? If there is a next season…

ETA: You know who is dancing first – we’ll know how many votes need to be cast to beat him. It’s unlikely he will go over Lamar, but here’s to hoping.

ETA2: Well, I could’ve sworn he said he was going first, but the lineup below is courtesy of George Pennachio, so….

 

Ally and Sasha – Jive
Dancing First?

Kel and Witney – Cha Cha
Dancing Second

S___ and Lindsay – Paso Doble
Dancing First or Third?

Kate and Pasha – Argentine Tango

James and Emma – Quickstep

Pure DWTS Season 28 Week 3 – Interviews, Recaps, Scores, Photos, And Extras

What a great night again! I was sad to see Ray having to leave the competition, but, it was for the best so he could take care of his injuries before they got worse. My absolute favorite couple of the night was Sasha and Ally. I love her excitement, but, I had to laugh when grumpy Len told her not to touch him when she wanted to give him high fives. Hilarious. Anyway, below is some fun media and goodies relased after the show and from today too. Also, if you missed Miss Heidi’s Live Blog, be sure to see it here.
