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.

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/SYTYCD 14 Update – Kiki & Jenna Still In, Sydney & Paul Out, Sasha & Emma Choreograph

Figured it was probably worth it to check in on how things were going with our DWTS cross-overs on SYTYCD, especially since speculation has started on whether or not Jenna’s going to be a pro this season…

…Kiki & Jenna are still in the competition as of last night, which seems to be sparking chatter of “Is Jenna going to be a pro on DWTS this season?” While crazier things have happened, the longer Jenna remains on SYTYCD with Kiki, I think her chances at a pro spot on DWTS this season get exponentially smaller with each week that passes – especially since this season’s pros are getting confirmed this week, and it’s possible that Kiki & Jenna could make it to the finals…which would drastically cut into her rehearsal time with a potential celeb partner on DWTS. And given that Nigel seems to have gotten a lot more proprietary with his all-stars as the seasons have gone on, I’m not sure that he’d be willing to share her with DWTS for the few weeks of overlap between DWTS rehearsals and SYTYCD wrapping up.ย  Last year was a bit of a different situation on SYTYCD, as Jenna was an early out and there wasn’t much in the way of overlap with DWTS – but given that Kiki & Jenna haven’t even landed in the bottom 3 yet, it may be possible they could be there for awhile…leaving less and less time for Jenna to devote to being a pro on DWTS.

In other news, Sydney & Paul were eliminated last night, and Logan & Allison are still in the competition – which means that I think Allison’s chances at a pro spot on DWTS this season are about as good as Jenna’s…in that they’re probably not all that good. Sorry.

But at least we got a piece of Sasha & Emma jive choreography, which they did for Logan & Allison – and Shad even showed up in the audience to support them! Love when contestants remain close with their pros after their season ends ๐Ÿ™‚ They also got to see Jake Monreal, Jenna’s partner from last year, whom they had also choreographed for.

As always, be sure to check out Amanda’s detailed review of last night’s show over at Pure SYTYCD.

DWTS Season 25: Rumors or Wishful Thinking? Gina Rodriguez and Michael Delorenzo

In the absence of ANYTHING concrete (yet), I was roaming around twitter looking for clues about celebs for next season of Dancing with the Stars. Looks like Michael Delorenzo would be up for it if they asked – check out his feed, as he’s talking about it a lot and using some interesting emoticons. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m quite sure you’ll recognize him as a character actor from Blue Bloods, CSI Miami, and other things. Long resume.

Secondly, thanks to Dee for the heads up that Gina Rodriguez is now following Sasha Farber! Guess who Gina is friends with? Derek Hough…the dude who said he knew someone that was going to be on this season. ๐Ÿ™‚ I questioned Dee relentlessly since Sasha is way down on Gina’s follow list if you look on the actual twitter, however she says that Sasha was Gina’s most recent follow on the app she uses. Not sure how Twitter sorts all that stuff. Anyway, just in case – plus, it appears that Derek and Sasha are the only two DWTS folks she follows. I could be wrong since I can only go down so far in her list right now. I think she would be great and would give Sasha a real shot at the MBT, if she is on.

2017 Dancing With The Stars ‘Hot Summer Nights’ Tour Photo Gallery By Voguerista

I was so blessed to see the Dancing With The Stars “Hot Summer Nights” Live Tour on Friday, August 4th, at the Bellco Theatre in Denver, Colorado. The show was visually stunning, full of great dancing, and highly entertaining. I have to give huge props to Rashad Jennings. He danced with the best of the pros and then some. He was hilarious and full of charm as well. What’s more, I was blessed to meet a fan and reader to the sites, Ette, and her dear friend as well. What a couple of sweethearts who made the experience that more special. My only disappointment was not being able to see Gleb Savchenko (as most of you know, him and his wife Elena just had their 2nd baby), but, I hope to see him next time. Anyway, what a super show. Below are some photos I took. If you’d like to view a bunch more, see Lisa Kay Photography at this link.

Dancing with the Stars Season 25 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year once again folks. And sans Derek and Mark, I can’t say I’m terribly enthused…unless we can get Sasha or Sharna a MBT this time around. ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you have something to contribute, PLEASE PROVIDE a SOURCE – by that I mean a link. We appreciate the help, but it needs to be sourced, otherwise it’s just a distraction. Thx.

Derek recently said, very firmly, that he’s not coming back. Since he’s committed to NBC I would assume that to be solid, despite what he says about Celine Dion. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m fairly sure I heard Mark say that he is out as well, but I’m not as sure about that. Peta has started playing the Chmerkovskiy salary negotiation game – all three (Peta, Val and Maks) have implied they “might” be back. Peta pretty much outright said if she gets a good partner. I have a question mark by Jenna with the word out because I think it hinges on SYTYCD. Based on her pick, I suspect she’ll be available.

ETA2: It’s Pro Reveal Day on GMA!! Watch this space down here and I’ll be updating (or trying to) as we go!

We think Mark is back based on the silhouette!! ย Pray…our only male choreographic hope sans Derek!!

Gee, I had forgotten how lame GMA is. :::rolls eyes::: ย This is why I watch CBS This Morning. This show is crap.

Thank you Jesus. Mark is back. Please give him a decent partner. oOooo…sounds like they lured him back with his partner.

LOL to Bruno!!

Shit. Looks like Sasha might have gotten hosed. Alan lovers got their way for some mysterious reason. Let’s hope he lives up to the hype. I have my doubts.

There might still be a pro to be revealed, since we appear to be one short….

ETA: With this latest update from ET, it looks like we now have a full roster of pros.ย  Sorry, Jenna/Allison/Sasha fans. Cheryl fans, rejoice! ๐Ÿ™‚ -Court-

Val – IN

Dancing With The Stars Hot Summer Nights Tour – Blog And Photos By Cindy

Cindy Krumpet has sent us some beautiful photos of the new Dancing With The Stars “Hot Summer Nights” Tour. You can see them at her FACEBOOK. She included photos from the Meet & Greet as well in the mix. Cindy also sent us her thoughts on the show and her experience which you can read below. I love how she was able to meet Ruby The Creature (Emma and Sasha’s puppie). So cute. THANKS, Cindy! If any of you have a some tour goodies to share, write to our Contact Us link. We’d love to feature whatever you’ve got.

Dancing With The Stars “Hot Summer Nights” Tour
By Cindy

I have been going to the DWTS tour shows since the 1st one which was right after Julianne and Apolo’s win. They are a lot better today. This tour was the first time I was able to see all the pros for photos and even met Ruby she’s tiny. I had a VIP and there were only 7 total, so, there wasn’t any green screen photos, but, they took group photos instead. I thought the VIP was more organized and was run by Sam (Lindsay’s husband) which I didn’t realize. I knew he looked familiar, but, wasn’t expecting that. I had Emma, Lindsay, Gleb and Rashad for the photo. I’m glad I had Emma and Lindsay because I never had them at my m&g for a professional photo. Rashad is very nice and you can’t help to smile and be in a good mood which reminds me of Emma. For my mingle, I had Alan and Britt. I never met Britt before. She is nice.

Now for the show: After being seated it felt a little funny since Val wasn’t there, but, once the show started the pros did an amazing job. I’m not good at naming the dances in order, but, my favorite dances were from Emma and Sasha, Sharna and Gleb (the blindfold dance), and Emma and Rashad. My favorite group dance was the summer dance. Sasha was in his crab outfit. I think this tour was more fun than the others because of the dances and Rashad. The star pro for me was Emma followed by Sasha, Sharna, Gleb and Lindsay. After the show I went to the buses hoping to see Sharna and Haley because they were the only ones I didn’t get to see. Everyone went down the line taking photos as long as everyone remained on the sidewalk. I had the best time. The only thing that went wrong was my camera card filled up right after intermission and I had to change the card.
