It All Started With This Show

When I first started this blog, my first posts were about Dancing with the Stars. Now season 24 is about to start. 

So like I’ve done in the past. I will post all of the stars and their partners. 

Then I will be my early-bird pick to win the mirror trophy. And who I think needs to be voted off first. 

Throughout the season, I will post me mini-review of the show and my favorite song(s) from the night. 

So, here’s to Season 24.

Dancing with the Stars — The All-Stars — Week 3

Dancing with the Stars — The All-Stars

On tonight’s show:

Week 3: Iconic Dances Week

  • Celebrities must chose an iconic routine from the previous fourteen seasons and perform it but try to make it as “iconic” as it was previously. There will also be a double-elimination

I have to say, the dance on tonight’s show were pretty good. But there was also a lot of drama on tonight’s show. Most of it involved Bristol Palin and her partner, Mark Ballas. And if that wasn’t enough, there is going to be a double elimination on next show.

So, here are my picks for this week.

Who did the best:

As much as I hate to admit it, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani did really good. I mostly want Tony to finally win a mirror trophy, so it’s really him that I like, not Melissa. She looks like she is a diva and could be a pain to deal with. But they had a good dance, so they should make it to the finals.

The two pairs that I think need to be voted off:

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas

Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas

There are many reasons why I picked this pair, but mostly it is because she is such a drama queen. Crying and telling Mark that she knows he wished he was with his other partners from past shows, Shawn Johnson and Sabrina Bryan. I didn’t know that the show was in the setting of the 7th grade and Bristol was crying because no one likes her!

The other pair, is a little harder to pick. But I have to go with: Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke

Cheryl Burke and Emmitt Smith

Emmet looks like he is just phoning it in. He won his mirror ball trophy, why does he need another one. Plus, he looks like he think he’s all that and better than everyone else.

Best song(s) of the night —

So, we shall see if any of my picks come true on the results show. Looking forward to seeing more of the drama of Dancing with the Stars!!

Side note:

To repeat previous posts: Brooke Burke Charvet is a terrible co-host and Carrie Ann Inaba acts like she is drunk! It’s not a pretty sight.

Did they get new singers this season? They sound a little bit off.

While I watch the show, I am also on Get Glue with other DWTS fans. Tonight, I got “yelled” at by someone when I made a comment about her comment about Emmet Smith. She said that she was too classy to make any comments about what I posted. I told her, go ahead, you can make any comments you want to, I don’t care. I told her its a forum where fans can post, good, bad and ugly comments with other people who have the same interests. Then there were some people who said that some people were being means and hateful. What??!! Again, calm down, it’s just ballroom dancing!!

Next week’s show should be interesting:

All of the celebrities will choose a dance style for one of their opponents, as well as getting their style of dance chosen by a fellow competitor. Paula Abdul will appear as a guest judge.

Could Paula be taking the place of someone?? Carrie Ann?

All-Star Teams

DWTS (Season 14) — The Winners

Dancing with the Stars (U.S. season 14) is over and the winner of the mirror ball trophy is Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd.

Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd

Any of the final three pairs could have won this season. There were a lot more pairs that were good that made it an exciting season to watch, Rumors have it that the next season’s show will be an All-Star show with stars from the past 14 seasons. it should be interesting.

Till next season.

DWTS (Season 14) — Week 10

Dancing with the Stars (U.S. season 14) — The finals were on tonight and the pairs that danced tonight were:

Here is my tw0-cents worth on the show.

Best pair of the night and Surprise of the week: Donald and Peta

Donald Driver and Petra Murgatroyd

I was really surprised by their Freestyle. I didn’t see them having a country-themed dance. Bonus was the song that they danced to, “I Play Chicken with the Train” by Cowboy Troy.

Plus, who else could have worn Green Bay Green and Yellow with sequins!!

2nd and 3rd Place — William and Cheryl and Katherine and Mark — they danced well, but they didn’t have the WOW factor that Donald and Peta had.

I did pick William and Cheryl to win, but I think he’s good because he’s so HOT! So any of the final three pairs can win and I would not be disappointed.

Best songs of the night: “I Play Chicken with the Train” by Cowboy Troy



Side note: This season’s show was probably the best out of the 14 seasons. From the beginning of the season, you could tell that there was going to be three or four pairs that could win the mirror trophy. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the pairs come back for their last dance.

Well done, ABC and Dancing With The Stars!

DWTS (Season 14) — Week 9

Dancing with the Stars (U.S. season 14) — the end is near. The four pairs in the semi-final are:

Here is my two-cents.

Best pair of the night: William Levy and Cheryl Burke — I really want him to win. He is so damn cute!

Whoa, they really need to go home: Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas — She has done such a great job, but she seemed a little off on last night’s show.

Surprise of the week: William Levy and how he moved in rear!!

Best songs of the night:

Side Note:

Here are my pick’s for the final three pairs:



DWTS (Season 14) — Week 7

Sorry, this is going to be short and sweet. Playing catch up on some of my postings that I missed these past couple of days.

Watched Dancing with the Stars (U.S. season 14) and here is my two-cents of the show.

Best pair of the night: William Levy and Cheryl Burke — just because William Levy is so handsome!

Whoa, they really need to go home: Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy  — too much DRAMA with these two!

Surprise of the week: Jaleel White and Kym Johnson he really thinks he could win the whole thing doesn’t he?

Best songs of the night:

Side note:

Good for William Levy for not wanting to dance with his shirt off. Grant it, I enjoyed i, but was it really needed?

I miss Tristan MacManus and Val Chmerkovskiy (he’s the nicer of the brother’s Chmerkovskiy)


DWTS (Season 14) — Week 4

Well, just finished watching Dancing with the Stars (U.S. season 14). It was “Rock Week” and I really didn’t care for the theme of the show this week. Some of the songs didn’t match the dances. The pairs seemed off for the first three weeks. It was still good, but putting Kiss and ballroom dancing together… who would have thought those two words would be said in a sentence!

So, here is my two-cents for tonight.

Best pair of the night: I wouldn’t say they were the best, but Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas did good. I really think this is the pair that might win the mirror trophy.

Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas

Whoa, it might be their last dance: As much as I hate to say it, Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus. She has done a great job and i will miss Tristan!

Gladys Knight & Tristan McManus


Surprise of the week/Best songs of the night: I would have never thought to put these songs to ballroom dancing!

Side note:

Here’s how the leaderboard stacked up:

  • Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd: 27
  • Maria Menounos & Derek Hough: 26
  • Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower: 26
  • Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas: 24
  • Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff: 23
  • Jaleel White & Kym Johnson: 22
  • Melissa Gilbert & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 22
  • William Levy & Cheryl Burke: 22
  • Sherri Shepherd & Val Chmerkovskiy: 21
  • Gladys Knight & Tristan MacManus: 20

I don’t care what anyone else says, this season’s stars have to be the best ever and the show is fun to watch. I say this because I have been reading some of the other postings on the show and there are some “mean” people out there. Some of the comments people make are so mean spirit and lack any common sense.

Now. I know that I give my two-cents on the show, but it is in all good fun. But some of the post attack the stars and why they are on the show. One post I saw, that said — Dancing with the Starsshould be called ‘Dancing with Ex-Celebrities That Didn’t Save Their Money.’ Now, how does that person or anyone else know for sure what these people are making and why they are on the show? Then there are the one’s who say they are not “star” or “has-been.” Well, they are more of a star than I am, my neighbors or anyone I know. Are you trying to tell me that William Levy, Katherine JenkinsGavin DeGraw and Gladys Knight are has-been? I think they are doing pretty well for themselves right now.

Yes, I know this is just a show and for fun, but why do people have to be such bullies and make fun of other people and what we do? Everyone just needs to be nice to each other and play nice!

Ans if you are really upset about all of this brouhaha — guess what, you can change the channel!

OK, enough of my little speech on my soapbox!
