Dancing With The Stars — Season 23… The Finals

Well, this is the topic that started my blogging several years ago.

Here is my post from the start of the season. My Early-bird pick to win it all was: Laurie Hernandez and pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy.

Did they win?? Yes, they did!

I think this might have been one of the best seasons. If Laurie and Val didn’t win, I would have wanted James and Sharna to win.

The new season of Dancing With The Stars starts tonight. As I have done in the past, I will pick my early-bird pick to win it all and who I think should go home first.

  • Ryan Lochte will be dancing with Cheryl Burke
  • Laurie Hernandez, will be dancing with Val Chmerkovskiy
  • Maureen McCormick, will be dancing with Artem Chigvintsev
  • Amber Rose, will be dancing with Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • Terra Jole, will be dancing with Sasha Farber
  • Marilu Henner, will be dancing with Derek Hough
  • Gov. Rick Perry, will be dancing with Emma Slater
  • Jake T. Austin, will be dancing with Jenna Johnson
  • Calvin Johnson, will be dancing with Lindsay Arnold
  • Babyface, will be dancing with Allison Holker
  • Vanilla Ice, will be dancing with Witney Carson
  • James Hinchcliffe, will be dancing with Sharna Burgess
  • Jana Kramer, will be dancing with Gleb Valchenko

Early-bird pick to win it all: Laurie Hernandez and pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy

First to go: Rick Perry and pro Emma Slater

I’m looking forward in watching the show this season to see how my pick does.

DWTS (Season 21) — The Finals

I’ve been a little lacks on my posts about Danving with the Stars.

Now it’s the Finals and its down to the last four Stars.

  1. Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough
  2. Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson
  3. Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess
  4. Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold

The start of the season, I reluctantly picked Bindi & Derek to win it all.

They have done a great job with all of their dances. She looks like she is having a fun out there dancing.

One pair that I’m surprised is in the finals is  Alek & Lindsay.

Yes, he’s a hero and all, but I think he’s good enough to for 4th place.

So, while watching the finals, I’m going to stick with my first pick… Bindi and Derek. Pick order is listed above.

Side Notes:

HOLY SMOKES! Nick & Sharna! First of all, I love that song, “Runaway Baby”—Bruno Mars.

I have to watch that routine again.

Seriously! They need to “retire” Erin Andrews. She is terrible. What is so special about her? Her making a fuzz about not getting the e-mail to have former stars dance with Carlos and Whitney… Pathetic!

Come on ABC, it’s time for someone new to take her spot.

OMG! Alek & Lindsay made the finals over Carlos & Whitney! In the words of Jeff Bridges as Roy Pulsipher in R.I.P.D. (2013)… “This is honky-tonk bulls#it!”

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.
