Dancing With the Stars (Season 17) — Week 9

Season 17

Here is my 2-cents for Week 9:

Trio Challenge

Each couple will perform one unlearned ballroom dance as well as a trio dance. Each couple chose one professional who was either previously eliminated or participates in the dance troupe to perform with them.

Crap, I picked Elizabeth Berkley and Valentin Chmerkovskiy as my Early-Bird pick, but they got voted off in Week 9.

I can’t believe that Bill Engvall and Emma Slater  are still on the show. It goes to show that the stars fan base plays a lot into the voting.

So I guess my pick to win now is: Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke. Out of the pairs that are left. I like Jack the most and it would be a nice change to have someone who is my really an entertainer win.

So here is my 2-cents for Week 4:Who I thought was the BEST: Even though I picked Elizabeth Berkley and Valentin Chmerkovskiy as my Early-Bird pick, I think I might have to change it to Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff. I think Corbin Bleu is only going to get better and better.

Who I thought was the Worst: Sorry, as entertaining as Bill Engvall and Emma Slater are, it’s already coming down to who can really dance.

There seems to be a lot of good pairs dancing this season, not a break-through pair leading the group as in previous years. This season is open for any of the pairs to take the mirror trophy.Best song(s) of the night:

So here is my 2-cents for Week 2:

Who I thought was the BEST: I have to say that I liked Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff dance. They looked like they were having fun doing the Jive.

Who I thought was the Worse: Sorry, but I have to go with Bill Nye and Tyne Stecklein again. He must have a huge fan base, because that is the only way he was saved to dance another week!

 Best song(s) of the night:

Not too sure if I like the one show a week format. The whole group standing there waiting to see if the made it to the next round, made me nervous! And I think Keyshawn Johnson and Sharna Burgess could have made it a little farther than some of the other pairs.

I do have to confess, I was swithing back and forth with watching “The Voice”.  Why do they have them on at the same time??!!

Until next week.

Well the Season 17 started and I can honestly say, I am really surprised at the quality of Stars and the dances they did.

I do like the new format of the show. The pair getting judged right after the judges input and not having to run up to the skybox. Not too sure about having the judges and the cast sitting next to each other. Also, I’m not going to miss Night 2 of the show. I always thought it was a little too much.

So here is my 2-cents for Week 1:

Who I thought was the BEST: Even though I picked Elizabeth Berkley and Valentin Chmerkovskiy as my Early-Bird pick, I think I might have to change it to Amber Riley and Derek Hough. As much as I don’t want Derek to win again, Amber did a great dance.

Who I thought was the Worse: Sorry, but I have to go with Bill Nye and Tyne Stecklein. Out of all of the pair, they did just missed it.

Best song(s) of the night:

And new for this season: Which start, professional dancer, host or judge got on my nerves the most — Right from the start of the show, I have to give this title to Brooke Burke Charvet. At least we are seeing and hearing less of her (so far.)

Special kudos to Valerie Harper and Tristan MacManus. I hope this team stays around for a couple of weeks,. What an inspiration Valerie Harper is! Plus I still love Tristan!

I usually wait a week or two before I make my early-bird picks of who I think is again to win and who I think is going to lay an egg.

For the weekly show, I will put my 2-cents in on the following:

  • Who I thought was the BEST
  • Who I thought was the Worse
  • Best song(s) of the night
  • And new for this season: Which start, professional dancer, host or judge got on my nerves the most.

My posts are totally my opinion and no one else’s. Agree or disagree with me… fine. But as I mentioned before, this is my blog and my 2-cents.

Looking forward to the new season to start.

Side Notes:

Before anyone gets all crazy about the following:

These are not “STARS”. Hey, they have been or were on TV/Movies and they are more of a star than you are.

This or this star already knows how to dance. Yes, maybe they can dance, but I doubt it if they can dance Ballroom dances. So I think that puts everyone on the same level.

It’s going to be a given, I do not like Brooke Burke Charvet. I can not stand it when she asks “serious” questions to the pair right after they dance and run up the stairs. Can’t she see that they can’t breath and are just trying to catch their breathes?

In case you forgot, here is a list of the Winners of Dancing with the Stars:

  • Season 1: Kelly Monaco and Alec Mazo
  • Season 2: Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke
  • Season 3: Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke
  • Season 4: Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough
  • Season 5: Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough
  • Season 6: Kristi Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas
  • Season 7: Brooke Burke-Charvet and Derek Hough
  • Season 8: Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas
  • Season 9: Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson
  • Season 10: Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough
  • Season 11: Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough
  • Season 12: Hines Ward and Kym Johnson
  • Season 13: J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff
  • Season 14: Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd
  • Season 15: Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani
  • Season 16: Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough

DWTS (U.S. Season 16) — Week 10: Finals

DWTS Season 16

Dancing with the Stars (Season 16)

Here is my 2-cents on Week 10: Finals.

Hard to believe that the Season 16 is almost over. I think this have been the best season for the number of stars who could possibly win the mirror trophy.

My Early-bird pick of Dorothy Hamill and Tristan MacManus fill through when Dorothy had to withdrawl due to an injury. But then after seeing the first couple of shows, I deceided to pick Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy as the pair to win the mirror trophy.

So this week here are my picks:

Who I want to win — Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy

Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy - 2

For being only 16 years old, Zendaya is a really talented person. I think she has improved ever week with Val and has shown that age doesn’t mean a think in ballroom dancing.

Here are my picks for the following places:

2nd — Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough — their Freestyle dance was amazing. The moves that they did, it looked like Kellie was one of the professional dancers.

3rd — Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas

4th — Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff

Best Song(s)

All the songs from the show were:

I’ll be watching tonight’s show to see if any of my picks were right. Plus, Pitbull is going to be on the show too! I do like watching him sing and move the way that he does!!

DWTS (U.S. Season 16) — Week 9: Semi-finals

DWTS Season 16

Dancing with the Stars (Season 16)

Here is my 2-cents on Week 9: Semi-finals of the show.

It’s coming to the end of the show with the final next week. This season has been good. There are more stars that have a chance to win the mirror trophy than in previous years (in my opinion.)

So this week here are my picks:

Who I want to win — Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy

Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy - 2

I’m going to stick with this team to win the mirror trophy. I think Zendaya is a pretty dancer and Val has been doing a great job choreography the dances they do. I don’t care what people say about her having an advantage over the other stars because she dances in her TV show. So… the same can be said about Kellie Pickler dancing on the stage at her concerts and Aly Raisman doing her dance routines in gymnastics. Ballroom dancing is a totally different animal. Each star comes in on the ground level of knowing ballroom dancing.

I would totally root for Kellie or Aly to win if I wasn’t on my anti-Derek and anti-Mark kick right now!

The pair that needs to go home — Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson.

Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson - 2

Ingo Rademacher time is up. He went a lot farther than I thought he would. But to be a part of the finals… nope!

So that means, my picks for the finals:

DWTS (U.S. Season 16) — Week 8

DWTS Season 16

Dancing with the Stars (Season 16)

Here is my 2-cents on week 8 of the show.

I have been trying to pay attention to this season show, but there is just something about it now that turns me off from watching it. Not sure ifs the stars, the pros or the judges?

So this week here are my picks:

Best Pair(s) — Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy

Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy - 2

 

I’m going to stick with this team to win the mirror trophy. I think Zendaya is a pretty dancer and Val has been doing a great job chorography the dances they do. Plus they did their trio-dance with Gleb Savchenko! Hubba hubba!

Worst Pair(s) —  Or more like the pair that needs to go home — Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson.

Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson - 2

 

I think it is time for them to be voted off. I loved Ingo Rademacher… about 15 years ago. But now he’s older and there is something about him that gets on my nerves! He complains a lot and it’s not very attractive and doesn’t make me want to vote for him. (Maybe I’m the problem… NOOO!)

Best Song(s)

All the songs from the show were:

Hit the Road Jack“—Ray Charles

I’ll be watching tonight to see if any of my picks were right.

DWTS (U.S. Season 16) — Week 7

DWTS Season 16

Dancing with the Stars (Season 16)

Here is my 2-cents on week 7 — Latin Night of the show.

There is just too much good TV shows on Monday, so I was trying hard to pay attention to the show.

So this week here are my picks:

Best Pair(s) — Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy

Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy - 2

I really like this team. I think Val is doing an outstanding job teaching Zendaya the dances they are doing. On the social media site I particpate in, Get Glue, there are people on there that say the Zendaya has an advantage over everyone else becuse she dances hip-hop and has musicality. Then there are some that says it’s a popularity contest.

My 2-cents on the whole advantage thing is, yes, she may have the musicality thing going for her, but the structured techniques of ballroom dancing are apples vs. oranges. Just because you can move to the beat does not mean that you will be able to do the perfect Paso Doble.

Worst Pair(s) —  Or more like the pair that needs to go home — Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess

20130317-230115.jpg

As entertaining as Andy Dick is, it’s his time to go. I would prefer to see Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd go before them.

Best Song(s)

I’ll be watching tonight to see if any of my picks were right.

Side Notes:

I’m still boycotting Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas and Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough. I don’t like Mark and/or Derek and I really don’t want to see them win again.
