Dancing with the Stars — The All-Stars — Week 10: Finale

Dancing with the Stars — The All-Stars

;

The final pairs of season 15 are:

Well after three months, it comes down to the final three pair. Tonight’s show was good and all three pairs did their best.

And the pair that I think deserves to win is Melissa and Tony. There is no drama like with Kelly and Val; no stunts and breaking to rules like Shawn and Derek. Melissa and Tony dance like they know what they are doing plus being entertaining.

Best song(s) of the night —

Conga“—Gloria Estefan/Miami Sound Machine

I have always loved this song. If this song doesn’t get you moving, nothing will.

Side note:

The picture of the three finalists is from Dancing with the Stars Facebook page. Why did they pick a picture of Kelly looking so mean? That is one of the reason that I don’t care for Kelly.

I think it is time for Carrie Ann Inaba to leave. She is just too over the top sometimes. And that is hard to do when you have Bruno Tonioli sitting next to you.

While I watch the show, I am on the social media site, Get Glue. I have has so much fun posting on Get Glue with other DWTS fans. Sometimes, someone gets their panties in a bunch, but overall it is god, clean fun.

Dancing with the Stars — The All-Stars — Week 9

Dancing with the Stars — The All-Stars

Week 9: Semi-finals

The five remaining couples have two dances each this week: one unlearned dance to the music from Michael Jackson‘s album Bad and one dance chosen by the other couples. The theme of the last dance was also chosen by the other couples. Kelly and Val chose the “Caveman” Hustle for Melissa and Tony, Emmitt and Cheryl chose the “Knight Rider” Bhangra for Shawn and Derek, Gilles and Peta chose the “Big Top” Jazz for Apolo and Karina and Shawn and Derek chose the “Espionage” Lindy Hop for Emmitt and Cheryl. This left the “Surfer” Flamenco for Kelly and Val. Gilles and Peta would have danced the “Mad Monk” Merengue chosen by Apolo and Karina had they not been eliminated.

There will also be another double elimination this week, due to the Finals.

The final pairs of season 15 are:

Now the only star that has not won is Melissa Rycroft. All season long, I have said that I really want Tony Dovolani to finally win a mirror ball trophy. But that would mean Melissa would need to win too. I really have never liked Melissa. But if I want my pick to win, I guess I have to root for her too.

Plus, I really think that a star who has not won, should win this season.

So my lick (finally) of who I want to win this season… Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani. They have really done a really good job this season and they have improved since the first time they were on the show. So they deserve it.

Week 8: Trio challenge

All seven couples chose one professional that was either previously eliminated or participates in the dance troupe, to perform with them in their Latin routine in an event known as the “Trio Challenge”. There will also be a double elimination. In honor of Veterans Day, the first round will feature performances to songs that pay homage to servicemen and women

So here is my two-cents for the night and the two pair that I think should be eliminated.

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy — They have already been on 2 or 3 weeks longer than they should have.

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough — They pissed off the judges (who were really cranky tonight) with their lack of Samba dance.

Looking forward to the results show tomorrow night. Let’s see if any of my prediction come true!

How cool was it to see Tristan MacManus again! I love him!

Week 6: Country Week

Each contestant and their partner danced to a country song, hence the name “Country Week.” Each individual routine included a solo portion by the celebrity member of the pair

I was trying my best to pay attention to tonight’s show. With watching updates about Hurricane Sandy, football, playing Zombie Farm and finding the cables to my printer… it was a busy night. Plus, this season, I am not into all of the back stories of their journey to the dance. I would just rather watch then dance. Plus, the judges, well Carrie Ann Inaba, in particular, is getting on my nerves more this year. And then there is the drama with the stars and professionals crying abut how hard it is for them… I’ve only got one thing to say about that… There is no crying in ballroom dancing!

So hear is my two-cents for the night.

The best of the night —  Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani

I’m not a 100% fan of Melissa, but she and Tony did really goo tonight. Plus I really wont Tony to win once and someone who has not won win this season.

 

The Oh they need to go home pairKirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley

It’s been entertaining watching her this season, but enough is enough. She had her 15 minutes of glory, now its time for the real serious contenders.

If this pair doesn’t go home, then Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke should be the next pair voted off. I just don’t like this pair at all and they already have won a mirror ball trophy. Move along and let someone else win.

Best song(s) of the night —

“I Play Chicken with a Train”—Cowboy Troy

Home“—Blake Shelton — I love this song. I love Michael Bublé  version better. But Blake’s is pretty close.

 

 

Looking forward to the results show tomorrow night. Let’s see if any of my prediction come true!

Side note:

While I watch the show, I am on the social media site, Get Glue. Because of Hurricane Sandy, some of DWTS fans could not watch the show. So there were some other fans of the show posting the dances, scores and some of the comments from the show on the site. I thought that was pretty cool that totally strangers but fans of the same show would do something like this for them!

Week 5: Guilty pleasures

  • The top two couples with the highest total cumulative points/average became “team captains” and chose teams to join them in the Team Freestyle; these captains were Gilles & Peta and Shawn & Derek. Gilles & Peta’s team consists of Kelly & Val, Emmitt & Cheryl, and Kirstie & Maks. Shawn & Derek’s team consists of Sabrina & Louis, Melissa & Tony, and Apolo & Karina. Bristol & Mark would have joined the team who lost a member, but they were eliminated in Week Four. (from wikipedia.com)

OK, the 2nd half of the show was tonight and I think it was a little better than last night’s show.

My favorite pair from tonight’s show was Sabrina Bryan and Louis van Amstel.  I really hope that a star that has not won before wins the mirror trophy. And Sabrina and Louis look like they are having a lot of fun on the dance floor.

And the best song of the night was “Give It to Me Baby“—Rick James. I was just saying to myself, why isn’t there more ballroom dancing to Rick James music!

 

 

So everyone is safe this week and on next week’s show, someone will go home. I still don’t have my pick of who I want to win yet. I have some favorites, but I can’t pick just one pair right now. I will by the end of the show… I think?!

Until next week!

Since only 1/2 of the pairs danced on tonight’s show, I will wait till tomorrow’s night show to make my weekly picks.But I will pick the Best song(s) of the night —

It was “Copacabana“—Barry Manilow danced by Emmitt and Cheryl.

Week 4: Opponents’ choice

  • All of the celebrities chose 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.

This week show was: Charleston, Rock n’ Roll, Disco, Bolero, Bollywood, Jitterbug, Mambo, Hip-Hop and Contemporary. All of the dances were done pretty good. I think the hardest ones were Bollywood done by Gilles & Peta and Mambo done by Shawn & Derek.

The best of the nightShawn Johnson and Derek Hough.  I think they have a really strong chance to win again. Especially if the other teams think that they need to match her moves.

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough

The not-so-best of the night — Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff — they danced to Hip-Hop and it wasn’t a dance Karina knew or liked. During their dance, she slips and falls. It was unfortunate that she fell and she felt bad about, but hopefully they won’t get voted off for that.

Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff

But it is time for Kirstie Alley  or Bristol Palin to be voted off. Grant it, Kirstie is entertaining to watch and more power tho her, being the oldest star there. But, now it’s time for the stars who can really dance to be on the show. Same goes for Bristol… she just can’t dance. I think the judges are just too nice to her.

Best song(s) of the night

This song reminds me of a job I had in Flint. Michigan at the local Y.W.C.A. working with teenagers at a summer camp. Good times!

Side note:

Carrie Ann Inaba wasn’t too crazy acting this week. But Paula Abdul and  Bruno Tonioli could have been separated at birth!! And  when Len Goodman started talking about dancing Disco at Studio 54… watch out!

I have said it before, I don’t like Melissa Rycroft  but I want Tony Dovolani  to win a mirror trophy! To me, she seems to have a bad attitude and think she is better than everyone else.

Excited to see the results show tomorrow night. Not only to see who gets voted off, but Donny Osmond & Susan Boyle are going to be singing “This is the Moment”.

OK, that is my 2-cents for this weeks show.Let’s see if any of my picks are right?
