By the end of this episode we will be down to THREE.  Three will go on next week to dance for the mirror ball.  Guest judge this week is David Ross, lovingly known as grandpa around the ballroom.  He was runner up a couple seasons ago with Lindsay. Nastia Luken, Meryl Davis and Von Miller are in the ballroom dancing this week and mentoring competitors.  They can all still dance. We’re going to learn about […]

Keep in mind this is a FOUR WEEK season.  The eliminations are crazy and the competition is tight! Tonight each athlete will perform an individual dance as well as being a part of a team dance.  Eliminations are based on judges scores combined with viewer votes.  Week two: here we go! Oh, there’s a guest judge this week.  Mr. Rashad Jennings himself! I love Rashad.  Everyone loves Rashad. Josh Norman & Sharna- Paso Doble They […]

Black and gold sequins, rhinestones and glitter are the theme of this opening number.  We meet the referees for the season: Len, Carrie Ann, and Bruno in short-short-I-cant-believe-how-short-they-are-black-glitter-shorts. Val is in the audience, which is wrong, wrong, WRONG. DISCLAIMER:  I’m all about honesty.  Gay figure skater who performs to music for a living is not exactly comparable to baseball or football player.  Let’s not be confused and think that they are on the same ‘playing […]

When I heard that DWTS (Dancing with the Stars) was going to run an athletes only season I was really excited.  I was far less excited to find out it is a mini season with only four weeks.  Although, it will be super competitive and move quickly so that does interest me a bit. A few days ago the pros were announced and that doesn’t matter for me as long as I know that Sharna […]

It’s night two of finals, folks.  We’re here.  We’ve made it all this way.  It’s the final three and by the end of these final two hours we will have a new mirrorball champion.  Spoiler alert: Sharna doesn’t win.  Maybe next season they won’t give her a basketball player. Ok, I’m not bitter.  Here we go. What I like about the finale: finding out the winner and celebrating. What I hate about the finale: 1 […]

It’s the first night of Finals.  Tonight will include a judge’s challenge which is a redemption dance chosen by a judge from one of their dances earlier this season that did not receive high scores.  After that is the ever popular freestyle round, which is always incredible.  Not to mention, a freestyle round including choreography from Mark and Lindsay.  The only thing that would make it better would be if Sharna was choreographing a routine.  […]

We’ve made it to the semifinals!  In case you missed last week’s episode (since I didn’t blog about it), those left in the finals are Drew, Lindsey, Jordan, Frankie, and Victoria.  They will dance two dances, one of their own and one that was a previous iconic dance on dancing with the stars, usually performed by a couple that went on to win the mirrorball. Drew & Emma- Tango This is a fun Scottish dance […]

*Sorry I’m a teency bit late.  Last night I was busy watching the movie Mark of the Vampire from 1935.  Don’t worry, I caught up today.* It’s spooktacular.  It’s all treat and no trick.  It’s bootastic.  It’s all the Halloween puns you can imagine.  Daddy Tom warns us at the beginning not to try to play a drinking game with Halloween puns as we will surely die.  Carrie Ann’s hair is blue.  Bruno is wearing […]

Each couple will be portraying a different genre of movies.  Sharna looks great in the opening number and that’s what matters, folks. Nikki & Artem: Foreign Films- Argentine Tango Nikki does a really great job with a beautiful dance.  I love her long red dress.  She does lose her balance a tiny bit during one move, but really overall she does great.  She refers to Artem as her Russian therapist in rehearsals.  After the scores […]

We survived most memorable year night so we get Disney week as a reward!  Kermit, Donald, Pinnochio, and Mickey are all in the house.  I love you guys, my faithful dance readers, so I will keep recapping, but just know in your heart that it’s mostly over since Sharna is out. Victoria & Val- Jazz- Steamboat Willy The old, original black and white Mickie and Minnie.  It was cute and fun.  In perfect sync throughout.  Lots of cute […]
