ETA: Lots of updates below….

It’s hard to believe it’s the midway of the season. Time is flying fast for this season. The couples really need to impress now with no mistakes or anyone could leave. I was the most impressed with Kaitlyn & Artem last night. Just perfection. And how about Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert? Now that was an Emmy winning dance! I want more!!

So, as always, let’s check out the scores from last night in order…

AJ & Cheryl 27 (9, 9, 9)
Monica & Val 27 (9, 9, 9)
Kaitlyn & Artem 27 (9, 9, 9)
Justina & Sasha 27 (9, 9, 9)

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 6 – LIVE BLOG

Hooray for Derek dancing tonight. His and Hayley’s dance looks like it should be good.

T-minus 25 Minutes…

It is week 6, isn’t it? I think I’m confused because I’ve worked the last four weekends. Yesterday was my first day off in a month. That’s my excuse if I start screwing things up. 🙂

Now THIS is a cold open. I love it. But we still get the Tyrant cat walk. Why does she always pick somewhat unflattering things to wear? Dang, I can’t hear Derek or Tyrant talk over the fake audience. The whole advantage of a fake audience is that YOU control the volume. This is why they never win emmys for Sound mixing. …Read more

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 6 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

They finally stopped calling it a cold open, but still Tyra is a focus of the show. She walks out every week – why is this an event?

The show will start with host Tyra Banks walking out to the ballroom to “I’m Coming Out” by Diana Ross. In addition, judge Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert will dance a special Paso Doble to “Uccen” by Taalbi Brothers.

According to the Futon Critic, the November 2 show will feature a double elimination. Buckle your seat belts!!

Here’s who’s dancing what this week. Looks to me like only Vernon, AJ, Skai, Johnny, Nev and possibly Kaitlyn got dance styles in their wheelhouse. Everyone else could be in trouble. Except possibly Chrishell who got contemporary…which has no rules and Gleb can sex it up to the max.

Nelly & Daniella – Viennese Waltz (“Humble & Kind” by Tim McGraw)

Monica & Val – Rumba (“Have I Told You Lately” by Rod Stewart)

Vernon & Peta – Cha Cha (“Celebration” by Kool & The Gang)

Justina & Sasha – Viennese Waltz (“She’s Always a Woman” by Billy Joel)

Jeannie & Brandon – Rumba (“You Gotta Be” by Des’ree)

AJ & Cheryl – Samba (“Mi Gente” by J Balvin and Willy William)

Skai & Alan – Cha Cha (“Say So” by Dojo Cat, featuring Nicki Minaj)

Johnny & Britt – Salsa (“On The Floor” by Jennifer Lopez featuring Pitbull)

Nev & Jenna – Jazz (“Good Vibrations” by Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch)

Chrishell & Gleb – Contemporary (“Stars” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals)

Kaitlyn & Artem – Samba (“Sorry” by Justin Bieber)

Who Danced it better….first up, Nancy Kerrigan dancing Waltz to “She’s Always a Woman”. Justina is doing V. Waltz and I don’t think the slow dances are her strong suit. And I love Nancy’s dress!

I didn’t find “Have I told You Lately” on youtube…and I searched BOTH DWTS and Dancing with the Stars. 🙂 I also had trouble with “Celebration”…found lots of celebration related stuff, but not the actual song. I did find a very sweet waltz by David and Lindsay to “Humble and Kind”…and another gorgeous dress. Nelly is a better dancer (by a little) than David, but can he handle and V. Waltz??

I also didn’t find “You Gotta Be” by Des’ree. Keep in mind, me not finding it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist, it just means that my casual search did not turn up a video. But, here is an excellent Samba by Jordan and Lindsay to “Mi Gente”…doubt very much AJ can live up to this one.

I found nothing on “Say So” by Dojo Cat, but I guess I should expect to since the official video was only posted on youtube 7 months ago. I also didn’t see “On the Floor” on youtube…I saw tons of Pitbull (obviously) and I saw a bit of Jennifer, including a pro dance choregraphed by Derek, but nothing with this particular song. Man, I’m striking out a lot…cuz I couldn’t find “Good Vibrations” or “Stars” either. But of COURSE I found Ginger and Val dancing to a latin remix of “Sorry” by Justin Bieber. I could barely watch the whole thing as I’m still traumatized from having Ginger shoved down my throat to this day when it comes to GMA and DWTS. Ugh. I feel very confident that Kaitlyn and Artem will do it better.

ETA2: Access interviews added and more…

ETA: Updated below with GMA interview with Sharna and Jesse.

Two words….Johnny & Britt! Nev & Jenna and Artem & Kaitlyn were so good last night too, but, Johnny & Brit hit it to another level and world!

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 5 – LIVE BLOG

Oh yes it’s 80’s night and the feelings right, come on!! Name that tune for tonight’s question. 🙂

I’m blocking out Tyrant’s cold open before it even happens. Yes, I am that talented. 😉 Might have to block out Derek’s outfit as well. Here’s a sneak peek.

T-minus 30 minutes…

Okay now I see why they were wearing all the crazy shit during rehearsals. 🙂 This seems like the cold open to me.

And the Tyrant show begins…

Totally unnecessary discussion of what happened last week with the elimination. :::rolls eyes:::

Justina is up first with Maniac. Jazzzzz….

She’s working it as well as she always does, making it fun. There’s not much to this dance, but that’s to be expected, I think. Better lift this week. Little problem with timing there towards the end. And they actually did the water. Lord.

Derek says she’s a maniac in a good way. I hate his hair by the way. 🙂 Bruno says wet, wild and wonderful. Says it was deliciously 80s. CAI says that was her jam. Says she was incredible. Says the were in sync…and she did catch the part where they got out of sync.

Scores: 8, 8, 8 for a total of 24

Jessie is up next with his Tango…and he looks like a different person. Not bad at all.

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 5 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

It’s 80’s Night….and this is just ridiculous, not Rad or Tubular. From the ABC/Disney Press Release:

The show will start with a cold open with Tyra walking into the ballroom to Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know.”

Wow, what a great cold open and so very different from every other week this season. Dear lord. Tyrant is NOT the star of this show!! This is exactly what everyone was worried about when they heard she was joining the show. And since she’s executive producer, there is likely little the other producers can do about it. It’s literally vomit inducing. There are at least 25 people who are going to be on the show this week that are more talented than her (sorry CAI and Bruno, you didn’t quite make the cut…close, though, Bruno). Anyway, on to the real stars of the show and what they’re dancing.

BTW, I’m a youngster of the 80’s and Tainted Love is one of my all time favorite songs. 🙂 But WHY did they have to give it to Val? I doubt he and Monica will do it justice. Damn, also love “I think we’re alone now”…excellent and I have higher hopes for Kaitlyn and Artem doing it justice. Lot’s a tangos!! “The Power of Love” was one of those songs they played to absolute death…I think I’m still over it and cringe when I hear it. Same goes for “Total Eclipse” and “Open Arms”. The Jazz dances will be interesting because those songs are so clearly not jazzy at all; Jazz has more clearly than ever been reduced to a catch all where you can do anything you want. Ahhh…also love Tears for Fears. I suppose the producers aren’t cool enough to whip out a Squeeze song, are they? Answer: No.

ETA: AJ dancing 6th which should put him at the top of the hour. The pimpage continues…

Nelly & Daniella – Samba  (Song: “Rhythm of the Night” by DeBarge)

Monica & Val – Tango  (Song: “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell)

Vernon & Peta – Tango (Song: “Livin’ On a Prayer” by Bon Jovi)

Justina & Sasha – Jazz  (Song: “Maniac” by Michael Sembello)

Jeannie & Brandon – Jazz  (Song: “Like a Virgin” by Madonna)

AJ & Cheryl – Waltz  (Song: “Open Arms” by Journey)
Dancing 6th

Skai & Alan – Jazz  (“The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis & The News)

Johnny & Britt – Contemporary  (Song: “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Taylor)

Jesse & Sharna – Tango  (Song: “Everybody Wants to Rule The World” by Tears for Fears)

Nev & Jenna – Quickstep  (Song: “Take on Me” by a-ha)

Chrishell & Gleb – Cha Cha  (Song: “You Got it (The Right Stuff)” by New Kids on the Block)

Kaitlyn & Artem – Tango  (Song: “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany)

Who Danced it Better?  Well, I don’t remember a lot of 80’s music on DWTS, but let’s look at what I could find. I could only find “Open Arms” on SCD and it’s a beautiful waltz. I don’t see AJ doing this well.

Stating the Obvious: Tyra is a Big Downgrade for DWTS as Host

I didn’t think I’d need to write this article, but given the number of people that keep sending us messages on our contact us page about Tyra Banks as host, I had to write this article.  Here’s stating the obvious:

Tyra Banks is a massive downgrade from Tom Bergeron.

Notice I left off Erin Andrews which quite frankly had mixed reviews, but given the number of messages we’ve gotten from fans saying they liked Erin Andrews better than Tyra Banks, it’s clear that fans liked Erin better than Tyra.  While there’s probably some small handful of people that are out of their minds and like Tyra more than Tom as host of DWTS, they don’t likely read this site.

And just so I’m clear, I’m the nice one here at Pure DWTS.  Most of the other writers here would be much meaner than I about Tyra.  Although, we all agree that Tyra was a bad change for DWTS.

While I should note that every season of DWTS we get people hating on various stars, hosts, judges, etc, there are very few participants where we hear almost no one that likes the change.  Not that DWTS doesn’t need to change.  It does.  If it doesn’t change, it will face cancellation.  However, as I learned in my first job out of college: Change isn’t always better.  That’s exactly what’s happened with getting rid of Tom and replacing him with Tyra.

No, I’m not talking about the results mistake either.  This is something that those of us that watch America’s Got Talent saw coming.  She was terrible on AGT and the same is true on DWTS.  In fact, I’d actually say she’s been better on DWTS than she was on AGT.  Probably because she plays less of a role which is good.  Although, she certainly loves to insert herself in lots of places which most of us don’t really want her to insert herself.  One thing that’s amazing about DWTS is that it’s packed with interesting stars and many of the pros have become stars in their own right.  The host of DWTS doesn’t need to be the star of the show.  They should sit back and make the stars and pros look good.

To be honest, that’s what Tom Bergeron did so well for so many years.  That’s why we’re all still mourning the loss of him on DWTS.  I won’t go into all the reason Tom Bergeron was amazing, but suffice it to say that he was the perfect host for DWTS and the consummate professional.  While I think some of us enjoyed Erin Andrews, I’m pretty sure most of us would have understood if they went down to one host: Tom Bergeron.

What I don’t understand is everyone that messages us saying that they’re not going to watch DWTS because of Tyra Banks.  As we’ve shared, Tom was better and Tyra, but is that really why you watched the show?  Is she really that bothersome that you wouldn’t want to enjoy the backstories, the amazing dances, and other drama that makes DWTS great to watch?  At a minimum, get the DVR ready and fast forward when Trya is talking, but you weren’t much of a fan of the show if Tyra annoys you that much to stop watching.

I guess to each their own and our patience is short amidst everything that’s going on in the world.  Hopefully, next year they correct things and bring back the Berg.  Let’s be honest, I’d be happy to have Samatha Harris back as host or a newer direction with someone like Alfonso Ribeiro.  Although, I wouldn’t count on it since she’s got the Executive Producer title too, so it would be hard for them to tell her that she wasn’t good as host.

If nothing else, hopefully this article is helpful to all of you who agree that Tyra Banks shouldn’t be the host of DWTS.  Here at the Pure DWTS fan site, we all agree.  So, you can stop sending us messages about it.  We know!

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, Week 4 – LIVE BLOG

Question of the (week 4) night – Tyra’s cold open will be:
A) Boring and Unfunny
B) Simply horrendous and cringe worthy.
C) Fine.

You have 20 minutes to vote. 🙂

Okay, so it’s a whiny/funny cold open. Actually, delete the funny part. Considering the state of the country, I’m not particularly amused.

Tyrant still thinks it’s a catwalk and she’s the show stopping VC model. Lucky for her, she’s not the most wrong person in the country today. Not even close. blah blah blah me me me blah celebrities blah.

Oooo…doing a lot to pimp AJ. He must not be doing that well??

Daniella is my girl crush. Great outfit. Ha, Daniella talks about celebs standing still with the pro dancing around him…she doesn’t want that. Let’s see if she succeeds. Read more..
