Song of the Day

You know there are certain songs that come on the radio that take you back to a special memory. Here is one that always takes me back to good times.

I Feel For You” (1984) by Chaka Khan.

In high school, it seemed that whenever the girl’s track team were at a school dance, we would request that song and all dance together. Not sure why it was that song, but it was.

There was one time, we came back from an invitational track meet during a school dance. We were still in our track clothes, all tried and dirty, but we crashed the dance and requested our song.

To this day, when I hear that song, it takes me back to the school dance and our team dancing to it.

Side Note:

WHT!! The was song written by Prince!? I’m I the lost one to know that Prince wrote this song? I’m in shock! Why didn’t I know this?


DWTS (Season 21) — First Team Voted Off

Here is my pre-show prediction on who I want to be the first team voted off the show. 

Kim Zolciak and Tony Dovolani. 


Just reading the stories that are online, turned me off of her being on the show even more. 

Kim Zolciak is well on her way to becoming Dancing with the Stars’ biggest diva this season, creating even more drama her partner Tony Dovolani than Kate Gosselin did back on Season 14. Read more at:

I feel bad for Tony Dovolani. This is the second time his “star” partner has gotten him voted off early on the show. 

I’ll post after the show to see how my prediction went. 


Well, looks like Kim and Tony survived to dance another day. Surprisingly, they did a pretty decent dance. 

Chaka Khan and Keo Motsepe were the first to get voted off. I m OK with that. as long as she comes back and sings during the finales. 

So who will be the 2nd team eliminated? 
I have to go with Gary Busey and Anna Trebunskay. Bless his heart, the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s must have bee really good for him. And she looks like someone trying to calm diwn a 2-year old hyped on Mt. Dew. 

Side Note

Please let this be the last season with Erin Andrews. I’m getting tried of muting the volume every time she trys to interview the teams. 

DWTS (Season 21) – 1st Show

So, I watched night one of DWTS (Season 21) and overall it was an entertaining show. Everyone seemed to have a good back story and looked like they knew what they were doing.

Here are the scores from Monday night:

  • Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough 24/30
  • Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess 24/30
  • Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson 23/30
  • Tamar Braxton & Val Chmerkovskiy 23/30
  • Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas 22/30
  • Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold 22/30
  • Hayes Grier & Emma Slater 21/30
  • Andy Grammer & Allison Holker 21/30
  • Victor Espinoza and Karina Smirnoff 15/30
  • Gary Busey & Anna Trebunskaya 15/30
  • Paula Deen & Louis van Amstel 15/30
  • Kim Zolciak Biermann & Tony Dovolani 12/30
  • Chaka Khan & Keo Motsepe 12/30

My early pick of who I like:

  • Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough
  • Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess
  • Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson
  • Tamar Braxton & Val Chmerkovskiy
  • Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas

If I had to pick one that I thought was going to win the mirror trophy, I would have to pick… Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough, just because I think she’s America’s sweetheart. But I would like to see Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson win it.


Who really needs to be voted of the show: it’s a tie between

  • Gary Busey & Anna Trebunskaya
  • Paula Deen & Louis van Amstel

Both the stars bring their own version of “crazy” to the show. Both were a trainwreack and you could tell it wasn’t going to be pretty. Bless their hearts!

Who surprised me?

Kim Zolciak Biermann & Tony Dovolani

For sure I thought Kim Zolciak Biermann would do better that she did. Since she is always on TV and she has big hair (like that has anything to do with it), I thought she would love being the center of attention. My the next dance, she will be the Kim that we all see on her reality show.

Best song(s) of the night:

As a host, I can handle Tom Bergeron. But, I just don’t like Erin Andrews. So of the things that come out of her mouth when she is interviewing the teams after they dance is mind boggling!

I’m looking forward to night 2 of the show. Let’s see what they can do after getting that first dance out of the way.


DWTS (Season 21) — The Stars



Here are the stars for Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars. After the 2-night premier of the show, I will make my pick of who I want to win this season. It looks like it will be another fun season to watch and see who can dance.
