Hey Everyone,

Welcome to Tink’s recap! We’ve got a lot of ground to cover with 7 individual dances and the group dance in just an hour and a half, so let’s get right to it!

First up are Melissa and Tony with an Argentine Tango. During their practice session, they visit Wisteria Lane to help Melissa get in touch with her inner maneater. It sure looks like it worked, because that was one HOT Argentine Tango. Tony choreographed a brilliant, intricate routine, full of lifts (which are legal in this dance style) and fancy footwork. Both halves of the couple have to really trust each other with those close quarters kicks and steps. Len points out a minor flub, one so minor that I didn’t catch it, but both Carrie Ann and Bruno heap praise on the duo. Judges scores: 10,9,10.

Next tonight are Lawrence and Edyta, dancing the waltz. In their practice footage, he takes her to a golf tournament for his charity and tries to teach her how to hit a golf ball. He says it is much like how he feels every week when she is trying to teach him a new dance. Their routine wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t the best. He seemed heavy on his feet, and there were a lot of mistakes and missed connections. Judges scores: 7,7,7. It should be noted that while Lawrence did design a very pretty dress for Edyta, it was obvious that it was difficult for her to move in, as she got tangled up in the float at one point, and caught in the hem of the dress at another.

Dancing third are Lil Kim and Derek, and they will perform a rumba. During their rehearsal footage, Derek is stressed about the choreography, trying to create a balance that will work for them. He doesn’t want to be too raunchy, but the rumba is a romantic dance. Sounds like he was VERY aware of the ripple in the fan community over Julianne and Chuck’s dance last week. I really enjoyed their performance, and found they had some beautiful tricks. Kim has really nice lines, and follows through with her extensions quite well. Judges scores: 9,8,9.

Julianne and Chuck are next dancing the samba. I’m still trying to wipe last week’s rumba from my brain, and not in a good way. Chuck has a concert this week and talks to his fans and asks them to vote for him. Julianne is hard on him in terms of what his footwork should look like during the rehearsals. They did a credible samba, but I still think Julianne is choreographing around Chuck instead of for him. I must have missed something, because the judges scored them 9,9,9.

Ty and Chelsie are dancing the waltz tonight. During the practice footage, Jewel comes in and helps them find their connection, and encourages them to keep it real, and not try and turn it into something it isn’t. It worked, and this was a beautiful, lyrical waltz. Chelsie really seems to have a way about her of doing choreography that shows Ty off, and compliments his natural gifts without seeming showy. Judges scores: 8,8,8.

Shawn and Mark will dance the cha cha for us tonight. Shawn is under a lot of pressure this week, she has two awards she has to travel to accept, and misses the group dance practice entirely. They learn most of their cha cha on the road, and Mark expresses worry that she is overtired and isn’t picking the steps up as quickly. Well, from their dance quality tonight, I’d say that their footage was edited for maximum drama, because that was an awesome dance! Shawn has such clear, precise steps, and great quality to her movement. I think this is where her training as a gymnast helps her most, because she is so aware of her own body and how to allow it to move in the way it needs to. Judges scores: 9,9,10.

Last to dance individually tonight are Gilles and Cheryl, with a Viennese Waltz. Whoo hoo! Gilles in swim trunks during the practice footage, without it even feeling contrived! Seriously, Cheryl got him in the pool to feel the fluidity of the movements, because he was having a hard time with the constant flow of the dance in the studio. It really seems to have helped, because that was a very graceful, lyrical Viennese Waltz. Judges scores: 9,9,9.

To round out the night, we have a 60s themed group dance, choreographed by Christian Perry. The practice footage was really fun, and I think we are in for a treat. Has anyone else noticed the big grin that Tony Dovolani can’t seem to wipe off his face this season? It is a beautiful thing to see! He and Melissa and Lil Kim and Derek look like they are having the most fun. Only Lawrence Taylor looks like he’d rather not be doing this. What a shame, because this group dance is all about letting loose and having some time to play! What a routine! I can’t begin to describe it, so I hunted it down on YouTube so you don’t have to!

Dancing with the Stars 8: WriterMarie 426’s Recap

Hello dance fans, and welcome to Dancing With The Stars – Week 7. Tonight our seven remaining couples will perform one of the dances they have not performed yet. It’s also the week for the group dance…60’s style.

The costumes look beautiful as the couples descend the stairs. These costumes the celebrities designed for this week are very impressive. Interestingly, Edyta is covered from her neck to her feet in fabric and fake fur.

Our first couple of the night is Melissa and Tony dancing the Argentine Tango. In practice, Tony focuses on Melissa being more aggressive. She gets nervous and wonders aloud why she questions everything so much, instead of just doing it. Tony takes Melissa to see where Desperate Housewives is filmed, and Teri Hatcher shows them around the set. Seeing where the sexy scenes of Desperate Housewives take place helps Melissa bring out her “inner man-eater”. Their tango is intense and sexy, with intricate leg movements and great lifts. They do a wonderful job of keeping in character throughout the dance.

Len says the dance is fantastic, and although he thought he saw a little blunder, he enjoyed the intricate steps and lifts, which are allowed in the Argentine Tango. Bruno disagrees about there being a mistake, saying that Melissa’s legs are like magic tools in the hands of a master. It was so hot for him that he thinks he needs a drink. Carrie Ann believes this is the best Argentine Tango she’s seen so far this season. She calls them the King and Queen of legal lifts.

Score: 29 (10,9,10)

After they receive their scores, Tony marvels at what a trouper Melissa has been this week while dealing with her badly bruised ribs.

Next up are Lawrence and Edyta with their Waltz. LT is nervous about needing to learn two dances this week, especially since he also is holding a golf tournament for his charity. He starts to teach Edyta some golf techniques, which makes her realize how hard it must be for him to learn dancing. She tries to get LT to look graceful and elegant, and she knows he will do his best because he is such a competitor. Their waltz is full of smooth movements, and Edyta casts off her long fur-trimmed coat to reveal a gorgeous blue evening gown. Some of the material from the gown gets caught around her face, causing the couple to make some mistakes.

Bruno says they got the romance right, comparing them to Dr. Zhivago. He thinks the dance was good but not brilliant. Carrie Ann notices more freedom in LT’s moves and likes that he was really enjoying himself. She also compliments him on his dress design for Edyta. Len says the dress might not have been that great, since it got wrapped around Edyta’s head. He appreciates the grace, elegance, and tenderness of their waltz, and is shocked at how well they danced.

As LT and Edyta go backstage, Tom announces that on tomorrow night’s results show the contest will begin to pick a new pro dancer to be on the next season of DWTS.

Score: 21 (7,7,7)

After Edyta is teased backstage about being so covered in fabric tonight, Tom states that the skimpier costumes Edyta’s been wearing all along are really for her own safety.

Our third couple tonight, Lil’Kim and Derek, are performing the Rumba. Derek works hard during rehearsal to tone down Kim’s natural sexiness, so it won’t be too over the top for the Rumba. He wants to balance sexiness with sweetness, which leaves him questioning his choreography while trying to please everyone. They perform a sexy, smooth, and romantic Rumba, ending with a breathtaking fan extension.

Carrie Ann says it was understated but also underwhelming, and believes that Kim should just let it rip on the dance floor. Len likes parts of the dance, but warns Kim and Derek not to worry about pleasing one particular person (meaning himself) and to do what they do best. Bruno says it was a good Rumba, but that Kim trying to be not as sexy is like a margarita without tequila.

Score: 26 (9,8,9)

Our next couple to dance is Chuck and Julianne, who are performing the Samba. During this week’s rehearsal, Chuck has a concert in Alabama, where he thanks his fans for voting for him and keeping him on the show. In the studio, Julianne decides to focus on technique, while Chuck says he will not let his fans down. They dance a fast-paced Samba, which is beautiful overall but a little stiff on the Samba rolls.

Len likes it a lot, saying it is their best dance to date. Bruno comments that Chuck was really working his butt and hips, and it was well done. Carrie Ann stands up and dances at her seat, and says they did a great job.

Score: 27 (9,9,9)

Ty and Chelsie are up next with their Waltz. Ty says at practice that no matter what he will always keep trying. It’s hard for him to get into the romance of the Waltz, since Chelsie is more like his adopted daughter. Chelsie brings Ty’s wife Jewel into the studio to help him with his romantic side. Jewel says that Ty is sincere and genuine, which equals romantic and sexy to her. Ty dedicates this Waltz to Jewel. They perform a very sweet and smooth waltz, which is more than can be said for the camera filming them. The camera becomes extremely unsteady during the dance, while Ty begins to look a little nervous toward the end.

Bruno believes they’ve made a big comeback…they are back in the game. Carrie Ann compliments Ty on his beautiful frame, good hold and posture. Len also likes the hold and posture, along with the rise and fall of the dance.

Score: 24 (8,8,8)

Shawn and Mark come out to dance their Cha-Cha. Shawn feels that she grew as as person last week performing the Rumba. She has a very busy week as well, flying to New York to accept the prestigious Sullivan Award, then on to Des Moines to accept another award. She feels the pressure, trying to fit in practice and getting overtired. Due to her schedule, she is not able to attend the group dance rehearsal. Mark and Shawn’s Cha-Cha is sexy with some great Michael Jackson moves thrown in, as they dance to PYT (Pretty Young Thing). It’s obvious that Shawn has become more comfortable with her flirty side.

Carrie Ann loves it, saying their flawless technique just came to life. Len says the Cha-Cha is a difficult dance, but they did it exactly as it should be done. Bruno calls Shawn a cheeky little devil, also complimenting their perfect technique and vibrant quality.

Score: 28 (9,9,10)

Our last couple on the floor tonight are Gilles and Cheryl, performing the Viennese Waltz. After last week, Gilles is determined to get back to the top of the leaderboard. Cheryl tries to bring out the calm side of Gilles, getting him to be “less Latin” and focus on the softness. She takes him to see a synchronized swimming coach, in order to get more fluid movement out of him. Gilles dances with the swim coach under water, then takes the lesson back to the studio for the Viennese Waltz. Their V-waltz is very smooth and romantic, with an intense middle segment to match the music. There is plenty of drama in their dance.

Len likes the way they worked the changes in their music, praising the rotation while advising them to work on the footwork. Bruno compares them to the movie Gigi, calling them glamorous yet still sexy. Carrie Ann calls Gilles the most graceful male dancer she’s ever seen, but tells him to still work a little bit on his posture.

Gilles and Cheryl head backstage to await their scores while Tom announces that there will be performances by Natasha Bedingfield and Celtic Woman on tomorrow night’s results show.

Score: 27 (9,9,9)

It is finally time for the group dance. First we are taken through rehearsal footage, where Mark uses a cardboard cutout of Shawn since she cannot be there. This group dance is choreographed by Christian Perry, who makes it a fun, mod 60’s experience. We even see Ty mess around with some hippie attire. Lil’Kim loves dancing on the go-go boxes, and everyone has a great time putting this dance together.

For this live performance, the judges will comment but they will not give scores. This dance will only be voted on by the audience at home. All of the ladies start out dancing on the stairs and go-go boxes, followed by the guys coming out and dancing in a geeky, silly way. There are great go-go moves and hand jives, and the couples all have their own signature moves which are performed well. Shawn does very well, especially considering that she wasn’t able to be at the rehearsal.

Bruno calls it fantastic fun. Carrie Ann says the boys were silly but the girls nailed it. Len likes the fun and energy, saying it reminds him of when he was twenty years old and went clubbing in London.

The evening ends with the dance recap and reminder to vote, and also a reminder of tomorrow night’s results show and pro dancer competition, where the home audience gets to decide which new pro will dance next season. Good night everybody!

Dancing with the Stars 8: Week 6 Recap from WriterMarie426

Hey Everyone,

Our wonderful new friend WriterMarie426 has written another awesome recap for us tonight! She’s giving you her East Coast thoughts now, and I’ll be back with a West Coast recap in a couple of hours. We hope you’ll enjoy both recaps. Without further interruption, here’s Marie!

Good evening everyone, and welcome to Dancing With The Stars Week 6. We are at the halfway point of the competition with only 8 couples left. Our stars and their partners are dancing either the fast, fun and energetic Jive or the smooth, sensual Rumba. All of our dancers are smiling as they make their way down the stairs, ready to show off their moves after a long week of practice.

First up tonight we have Ty and Chelsie doing the Jive. Ty gets stressed during practice, saying he knows that when he is trying so hard to remember all of the steps his dancing starts looking mechanical. Chelsie brings in a couple of props to help him loosen up…a hula hoop and a mini-trampoline. They begin their Jive with some country line dancing type moves, and their dance looks a bit sloppy at first. Partway through the number their Jive kicks into full gear.

Len says Ty is charming but looks bewildered, and that even though it took them a while to get going, he knows that Ty is giving it his all. Bruno says their Jive was like a wild animal…the timing was rough and the steps were wrong. Carrie Ann thinks it was an exciting Jive, but they never quite found their footing.

Score: 18 (6,6,6)

Our first Rumba of the night comes from Shawn and Mark. Shawn is nervous yet excited during rehearsal, and feeling a bit self-conscious while trying to create a romantic Rumba at age 17. Since Shawn will most likely miss her own prom, Mark completely recreates prom at practice for her, which helps her get into the right frame of mind for her Rumba character. Their Rumba is sweet yet sensual, and they keep that mood throughout the dance with great splits and beautiful arm movements. They receive the first of several standing ovations for the night.

Bruno says the dance was angelic and pure, but with a hint of the devil thrown in. He would have liked a little more hip action. Carrie Ann believes she saw a little bit of discomfort from Shawn at the beginning, but then the Rumba came to life. Len thinks their dance is just right, not too tame but also not too hot.

Mark tells Samantha backstage that when he choreographed this Rumba he tried to keep it age appropriate for Shawn.

Score: 26 (8,9,9)

Tom says that keeping things age appropriate for Len gives the show a lot of room to work with.

Next we have Lawrence and Edyta performing the Jive. LT gets very frustrated during practice trying to learn all of the steps, which then makes it harder for Edyta to get him to smile and have fun with the dance. They get a visit from LT’s friend and former DWTS competitor Warren Sapp, who gives him a football-like pep talk to help. Lawrence states that he has nothing to lose and will just go out and have fun with it. They perform a really fun Jive, with a lot of great leg action and good timing.

Carrie Ann thinks they did a great job and that LT brought his groove back. Len likes that there were a lot of basic movements and that Lawrence showed his lighter side. Bruno says it was alive and kicky and their best performance to date.

Score: 22 (7,7,8)

Dancing our next Rumba are Melissa and Tony. Melissa was kind of disappointed with her Paso Doble from the week before, so Tony really works on getting her into her Rumba character. Melissa feels that this dance is coming together easier than the Paso did, and she is ready to make a comeback. They perform a very romantic, sexy Rumba, with plenty of intensity and dramatic movements.

Len likes the interesting choreography and says it was clean and precise, but would like to see it be a little less balletic and more earthy. Bruno comments that Melissa has a fabulous body and that she bends into shape easily, and that she just needs to go for it more. Carrie Ann loves the emotional quality, but would like them to work on sustaining their movements.

Score: 27 (9,9,9)

Next we have Lil’Kim and Derek dancing their Jive. Kim is really pleased with the chemistry she has with Derek, and he works on getting her ro make her arm movements bigger. During rehearsal he takes Kim to a Car Hop for burgers and shakes, where they check out the classic cars and Kim gets into the 50’s mood she needs for the Jive. They dance to “Jailhouse Rock”, quite appropriate for Kim as a shout out to her former prison mates…only in this scenario Kim is the warden and Derek is the prisoner. They keep their characters well, adding some Elvis moves and tons of energy.

Bruno says he would like for Kim to “arrest” him…and the routine rocked. Carrie Ann jumps up from her chair and screams, praising the fantastic choreography and calling the dance “mind-blowing”. Len likes the fun and energy, but thinks that it was too theatrical and lacked jive.

Score: 28 (10,8,10)

Tom, seeing the major discrepancy in Len’s score, says he hopes there aren’t any markdowns that big on Len’s tax return.

Steve-O and Lacey come out for their Rumba. During practice Lacey tells Steve this is a dance of love, so he says he will give his fans all the love he’s got. Steve remarks that it’s hard to find that romantic connection with Lacey, since they are more like brother and sister. Lacey brings in Steve’s dog, so he can think about that feeling of love he needs to bring out for the dance. They perform a pretty good Rumba, a little choppy at times but with plenty of passion.

Carrie Ann says there is something oddly mesmerizing about their dance, and that Steve showed his honesty and vulnerability. Len states that there was no hip action, no footwork, and it was no good. Bruno thinks Lacey is hot and Steve has a puppy-like charm, but the dancing is bad.

Score: 16 (7,4,5)

Tom remarks that these are the most inconsistent numbers he’s seen since the bailout talks.

Gilles and Cheryl are up next with the Jive. Cheryl tells Gilles during practice that instead of being the sexy Gilles, this week he has to be the fun Gilles. He starts getting tense because there are so many steps to learn, so they go out to play soccer, which is one of his great passions. Cheryl tells Gilles to relate the kicking in soccer to the kicks in the Jive. Their Jive is fast and energetic, with great leg pumping action. They keep the Jive sexy while making it fun.

Len says there were a lot of good qualities, but that it was too frantic and wild. He also says he saw a mistake. Bruno also notices the mistake and thinks they need to keep it sharp, but it was fast and furious with Gilles giving 110%. Carrie Ann agrees with Len and Bruno, but says it was a good performance, with Gilles showing he can be more than just sexy. She also comments on wanting to seeing bigger arm movements. Gilles replies that the arms were a little difficult this week due to his shoulder injury.

Score 26 (9,8,9)

Chuck and Julianne are our last couple of the night, performing the Rumba. Julianne wants him to show his confidence, while Chuck worries about messing up because they are a real life couple. He doesn’t want to hear any comments about lack of chemistry. He has a hard time taking criticism from Julianne, so she takes him to the Santa Monica Pier, where they had their first date. They dance on ther pier, with Chuck remembering back to that night. Their Rumba is extremely sexy and intense with beautiful movements.

Bruno says he would like to see more of that, and even though the technique was not perfect and they need to be more precise it was a step in the right direction. Carrie Ann would like them to work more on their technique,but likes the passion in their dance. Len thinks it was more suitable for the bedroom than the ballroom, and it was too raunchy for him.

As Chuck and Julianne head backstage to wait for their scores, Tom reminds everyone that the group dance is coming up next week.

Score: 23 (8,7,8)

The evening ends with the dance recap and reminder to vote. Tom also announces that Rascal Flatts will perform on tomorrow night’s results show. Good night everybody, and tune in tomorrow to see which couple goes home!

Dancing with the Stars 8: Dancing with the Wounded Stars…

Hey Everyone,

Welcome to the third week of Dancing with the Stars season 8, or as I’m coming to call it, Waltzing with the Wounded! This week’s dances are the foxtrot and the samba. If you’d like to give these dances a shot in the comfort of your own home, come visit us at Ballroom Dance Channel, where you can learn from pros like Tony Dovolani!

First up tonight are Denise and Maks with the samba. Their rehearsal footage is hysterical tonight, with Maks in hot pink samba queen drag. Unfortunately, it didn’t help Denise learn. She had no bounce, and her footwork was messy. In their defense, the music choice was awful, and they had no control over that. Judges scores: 5,6,5. Ouch!

Dancing the first foxtrot of the night are Chuck and Julianne. She’s channeling her inner drill sergeant this week. Now I remember why she irritates me sometimes. I do have to say she gets good results when she uses this method, I just don’t like to watch her teach when she gets this way. Gosh, Chuck is awfully cute, and very charming in the smooth dances. However, their foxtrot tonight wasn’t quite as light and fluffy as it should be, in my opinion. Judges scores: 8,7,8.

Next to attempt the samba are Holly and Dmitry. I really like their chemistry together, and I really, REALLY like Dmitry. Poor Holly, she is so frustrated in their practice footage. I like that they show us that she is struggling, I think it will help women relate to her and want to see her stay longer. There are parts of this she gets SO right, and then she loses it. I didn’t expect to like Holly, I had preconceived notions about her, but I really am enjoying her on the show. I hope she doesn’t go home just yet, for no other reason than I enjoy getting to see the handsome Dmitry Chaplin every week! Judges scores: 5,6,6.

Steve O and Lacey are dancing the foxtrot tonight. I’m glad that he’s back again this week, but hope he isn’t doing too much damage to himself by pushing. I really do like him, though, way more than I thought I would. He was the contestant that I was literally angry they had cast when I first heard the news, but he’s won me over with his work ethic and determination to be good enough to be a real partner to Lacey. He is in obvious pain tonight, but I think he did a pretty credible job. I love the connection he and Lacey have made, you could see her asking him as they sat on the stage at the end of the dance if he was okay. Judges scores: 5,5,5. Hang in there Steve, I think the fans are behind you!

Lawrence and Edyta have the samba tonight. I really like that we are hearing more from Edyta this year, I think she has a wonderful personality and has a lot to share with the audience. They have a great song for a samba, but I never would have thought of it! Edyta has such a talent for coming up with choreography that distracts from her partner’s flaws, highlights his strengths, and doesn’t look too flashy. Judges scores: 7,6,7.

Shawn and Mark are dancing the foxtrot tonight. Ooh look, Mark is all scruffy…I think I like that! I love that Shawn isn’t afraid to make fun of herself, and these two have nice chemistry. I love her lines! I think that is one of the best things she brings to the competition from her background as a gymnast, is the ability to make beautiful shapes with her body. Mark definitely knows how to show that off to full potential! Judges scores: 9,9,9.

Gilles and Cheryl are dancing the samba. Cheryl is being really hard on him in practice this week, telling him that certain movements are horrible. We got to meet his mother this week, and she seems like such a sweet lady, who really loves her son and is proud of him. Um, hey…isn’t Gilles supposed to have less clothing on this week? Cheryl promised, I read it! Oh who cares, he’s hot even with his clothes on, and this man can BRING IT! I don’t think it matters that he isn’t as famous as the other contestants, he is clearly the top of the field for the guys. Judges scores: 9,9,9.

David and Kym have the foxtrot this evening. I am coming to like David, and think he has enormous potential. He was very endearing tonight during their practice footage, and really seems like he wants to impress the judges and do right by Kym. It was a beautiful foxtrot, and he has finall,y earned some praise from the judges. Its about time, because he’s been a good, solid dancer the first two weeks. Judges scores: 8,8,8.

Steve W and Karina are up, dancing a samba. I admire this man so much, he is so brave to dance with all these injuries he is sustaining. I love the attitude he brings to each and every dance. Unfortunately, he pulled a hamstring during practice, but is somehow pushing through the pain. You know, he’s never going to win this thing, but I just love him to pieces anyway, and want him to be on the show a bit longer. He makes me smile! Judges scores: 4,3,3. Ouch. That’s a bit harsh, don’t you think? And yet he still has a positive attitude. What a gentleman!

Melissa and Tony are dancing the foxtrot this week. She has amazed me so far with how naturally she is taking to all this. Melissa has such an amazing spirit, and is so willing to learn. I predict she’ll go far both in this competition and with whatever she chooses to do next. For those that say she has too much training, I’d like to point out that this is so different from any other form of dance she knows, she may be at a disadvantage, having to unlearn all she knew to be successful as a cheerleader. Once again, she does beautifully tonight, both during the dance and during the comments after the dance. You can see that she is really listening to the critiques and wanting to use them to improve. Judges scores: 9,9,9. Way to go, boss! It is so nice to see you calm and confident again.

Lil Kim and Derek are dancing the samba tonight. Now, since this is a party dance, I should think that this party girl will have a lot to bring to the dance. Kim certainly can work that fringe! I just wish she wouldn’t make that raunchy face while she’s dancing, it takes away from her dance to me. It wasn’t perfect, but I think she did a pretty good job tonight. Judges scores: 8,8,9. Good job! Kim, sweetie, watch the costuming, one of your pasties was showing.

Last, but not least, are Ty and Chelsie, dancing the foxtrot. Wow, Chelsie is just stunning in that dress. She is such a beautiful young lady, and I am very happy that they asked her to join the show. She is a definite asset, as is Dmitry. Come on, Ty! You can do this! There has to have been something on the floor, because they stumbled twice in what looked like the same spot. In spite of that, Ty was a calm and confident lead, with a beautiful strong frame. Carrie Ann, thanks for praising him for how he handled Chelsie’s stumble. Judges scores: 8,8,7. Way to go Ty! See, you CAN do this!!!!!!

Well, that’s it for tonight. Make sure you join us tomorrow for what should be a fun filled results show, right up until we have to send someone home. Am I alone in not really wanting to vote anyone off yet?

Keep Dancing,
Ballroom Dance Channel

TUESDAY, MARCH 24 ON ABC

Bottom Two Couples Compete in the Live “Dance Off”

“Episode 803A” – After a night of samba and foxtrot, the second couple to be eliminated from the competition will be announced on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” TUESDAY,
MARCH 24 (9:00-10:02 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Famed duo Daryl Hall & John Oates take the “Dancing with the Stars” stage by storm with their Billboard No. 1 single, “Maneater,” from their 1982 album, “H2O,” accompanied by professional dancers Karina Smirnoff, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Tony Dovolani and Dmitry Chaplin. According to the R.I.A.A, Daryl Hall & John Oates are the No. 1 selling duo in music history with their seven R.I.A.A. platinum albums and six R.I.A.A. gold albums, along with 29 No. 1 hits.

British singer-songwriter Adele takes to the “Dancing with the Stars” stage with her single, “Chasing Pavements,” from her first album, “19,” which debuted at No. 1 on the UK album chart and has since been certified platinum with sales of more than 500,000 copies in the UK and over 1,200,000 worldwide. Adele took home two Grammys, including “Best New Artist,” at this year’s 51st Grammy Awards. She will be accompanied on the stage by professional dancers Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo.

This week the bottom two couples facing elimination, determined by the lowest combined viewer votes and judges’ scores from Monday’s performance, will “Dance Off” to determine who is dismissed. The couples will have a chance to perform Monday’s dance for new scores from the judges. The judges’ scores from the “Dance Off” performance will replace their Monday night scores. A combination of the new judges’ scores from the “Dance Off” dance, along with viewers votes from Monday’s show, will be calculated following the “Dance Off” to determine the eliminated couple.

By evening’s end one couple will be eliminated, as determined by a combination of the judges’ scores and viewers’ votes. Who among the following 12 teams will leave the ballroom floor?

David Alan Grier (comedian and actor) and partner Kym Johnson
Shawn Johnson (Olympic gymnastics medalist) and partner Mark Ballas
Lil’ Kim (Grammy Award winning rapper) and partner, reigning champion Derek Hough
Holly Madison (reality television star) and partner, newcomer Dmitry Chaplin
Gilles Marini (model and actor) and partner Cheryl Burke
Ty Murray (“King of Cowboys”) and partner, newcomer Chelsie Hightower
Steve-O (star of “Jackass” and “Wildboyz”) and partner Lacey Schwimmer
Denise Richards (actress) and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Chuck Wicks (country music star) and partner Julianne Hough
Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple, a.k.a. “The Woz) and partner Karina Smirnoff

Good evening Dancing With The Stars fans and welcome to the first results show of the season. The eliminated team will be determined by a dance off. so without further ado, here we are–LIVE!

MUSICAL GUEST AND PRO DANCE 1

The show opens with the Big Bad Voodoo Daddies perform with Lacey, Cheryl, Julianne, Derek, Mark and Tony dancing. The dancing is fun and the music is just fun and catchy. I love it!

UPDATE ON STEVE-O

Steve-O gives an update about his injury. He says nothing is broken and he plans on staying in the competition to make it up to Lacey–and this time listen to her!

RESULTS PART 1

After a recap of scores and dances, we get to some results. The first four couples who are safe are Lawrence and Edyta, Shawn and Mark, Chuck and Julianne and David and Kym.

After a segment about the new set and some commercials, we learn that Denise and Maks, Melissa and Tony, Lil’ Kim and Derek and Gilles and Cheryl will also be dancing another week.

Cameron Mathison gives us a segment about surviving the show. He says not to trip, always make friends in the red room (he tries to psych Shawn out there) make sure to cry in the elimination room, and always kiss up to the judges. Spray tanning is also on his list to survive. Also to avoid injury, don’t do the show.

MACY’S STARS OF DANCE

Macy’s Stars of Dance features some very showy and fun dancers. What I like about the performance is that it not only features people we don’t normally see, but also introduces us to some new styles of dance.

MUSICAL GUEST JEWEL

Jewel sings her cover of Somewhere Over The Rainbow from her new album Lullaby. Dmitry Chaplin and Chelsie Hightower dance a sensual rumba and for some reason Chelsie has no shoes on. I love the lifts they do and they seem to have good chemistry.

Tom reveals that the quickstep was picked for design a dance.

WHAT THE COMPETITORS SAY

The contestants talk about their competition and actually have nothing but good things to say about each other. I love Shawn’s reaction about Gilles (HOT!) Belinda thinks its funny she is competing against Shawn, who is the same age as her son. It is so nice to see everyone be so positive toward each other without giving up their competitive edge. Steve W. says he turned down the Naked Man role! HA!

MORE RESULTS

Holly and Dmitry, Ty and Chelsie and Steve-O and Lacey are safe, leaving Belinda and Jonathan and Steve and Karina in the dance off.

DANCE OFF
Each couple will re-dance their favorite dance and be judged on it. Their scores will be combined with their original scores to give them each a new total.

Belinda and Jonathan re-do their salsa. I love how she always sings along as she dances. She does a pretty good job, but still seems a bit nervous out there. However, she seems like she is having SO much fun.

Len tells her she has more hip action, but there are still some mistakes.

Bruno agrees, saying she lost a lot of her footwork.

Carrie Ann thinks her performance level was much better but she lost it in the middle of the routine.

Score: 17 (5,6,6)

Steve and Karina reprise their quickstep. I have to admire him for trying so hard. He seems to do a better job tonight and his spirit is contagious!

Bruno says he admires him.

Carrie Ann thinks he improved but lost it in the middle.

Len thinks he improved as well but not a lot.

Score: 17 (6,5,6) Hahaha, Bruno had his paddle backwards!

AND THE COUPLE WITH THE LOWEST COMBINED SCORES AND THEREFORE GOING HOME RIGHT NOW……

Belinda and Jonathan are going home. She says she had a lot of fun and Jonathan is a great teacher. Jonathan is going to miss her fun attitude and hopes to see more hip action at her next concert.

As they take the floor for their last dance, everyone comes out to give them hugs and kisses.

Join us next week for our couples to take the stage with either a samba or foxtrot. Goodnight everybody!

Hey Everyone,

Welcome to week 2 of Dancing with the Stars, season 8. This week, our couples have either the quickstep or the salsa. Remember that if you’d like to learn the spicy salsa, we have lessons for that dance and many others at Ballroom Dance Channel. If you’d like to take your dance on the go, you can visit us at the ITunes App store. For the month of March only, all four of our dances at the App store are FREE!

We have 13 couples to get through in two hours, so let’s get started! As I told you earlier, Steve O has been injured earlier today, and will not be dancing this evening. Our first couple on the floor tonight is Holly Madison and Dmitry Chaplin. They will be dancing the quickstep. We got our first chance to really get to know both Holly and Dmitry tonight, and they are a very likable couple. Holly is a pretty quick study, because she is moving through this quickstep with grace and ease, and she’s still only had just over a week of training! Holly has plenty of work ahead of her, but this week, I see the potential. Judges scores: 6,6,6. Two week total: 36/60.

David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson will be the first couple to dance the salsa this week. WOW! David was funny in the practice piece making fun of Bruno, but I’ll tell you what, this man can dance. I’m very impressed, and I hope that he is around for a while so we can see him grow as he gets more comfortable. Is it just me, or does Kym’s dress look like a shorter version of her foxtrot one from last season with Warren Sapp? Judges scores: 6,5,6. Two week total: 36/60.

Denise Richards and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are up next, dancing a quickstep. Denise is having a bit of difficultly with the posture in the quickstep practice. Okay, I like Grease as much as the next person, but I really don’t think this is good quickstep music. Denise is doing quite well given the music choice, I think, and she certainly looked more confident on the floor. Judges scores: 7,7,7. Two week total: 39/60.

Next on the floor are Belinda Carlisle and Jonathan Roberts. They will dance the salsa tonight. I think I’d like to give my vote to this couple for most improved in a week, okay? The change in her is amazing, maybe the trouble was just with those spins in the Viennese Waltz. Judges scores: 6,6,6. Two week total: 35/60.

Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower are dancing the quickstep tonight. Ty is one of those people you really want to root for, because he’s trying so hard to do this well, but he’s so out of his element. I want him to succeed, and I don’t want him to go home tomorrow night! Ty, Chelsie, if you see this, know that you did AWESOME tonight! I think smooth is Ty’s strength, and Chelsie has figured out how to show him off to his full potential. Judges scores: 7,6,7. Two week total: 34/60.

Shawn Johnston and Mark Ballas are dancing the salsa tonight. LOL! Their practice footage is so funny tonight, Shawn is having a hard time loosening up for the salsa. Mark dancing the woman’s part so Shawn could see it was cute. It is a good thing he isn’t afraid to look silly to help her learn, because this team is turning in one hot salsa tonight. Mark also does a great job of using every bit of Shawn’s flexibility to their advantage, and they have great chemistry! Judges scores: 8,8,8. Two week total: 47/60.

Steve Wozniak and Karina Smirnoff have the quickstep tonight, and Steve is dancing on a fractured foot. I like this man so much, and I really want to see him have some more time here to learn. He’s not the best dancer, but like Rocco DiSpirito last season, he has the pure love of ballroom in his heart, and I love to watch him try. Judges scores: 6,5,6. Two week total: 30/60.

Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough are dancing the salsa tonight. I’m not going to hit you over the head with the fact that I don’t like that this real life couple is dancing together. This is hard for me, because I like Chuck a lot, but I think Julianne sold out in coming back this season. Ooh, Chuck is stiff, not a good thing in the salsa. Julianne just isn’t the most skilled at hiding her partner’s flaws, she always looks like she is just trying to show herself off, it doesn’t look like a partnership, and this is a problem I’ve noticed with her since her winning season with Helio Castroneves. Judges scores: 6,7,7. Two week total: 40/60.

Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska are dancing the quickstep tonight. I sure hope that LT has stepped it up, because Edyta deserves more out of her partner. I’m glad to hear in the practice footage that he is willing to keep trying. Unfortunately, he doesn’t look particularly light on his feet to me, although this is definitely a step up performance wise from last week. Judges scores: 7,6,7. Two week total: 36/60.

Poor Steve O! He has been struggling with back and neck problems all week, and up until dress rehearsal, was planning on dancing tonight. Unfortunately, he fell today during rehearsal, and is not competing tonight. Instead, we will be viewing, and the judges will comment and score on the dress rehearsal. I really hope this isn’t what takes him out of the competition, because he is the contestant this season that I didn’t think I would like, and ended up loving. He looked a little stiff, and in pain, but I really liked the routine, even if it was just practice. It appears his injury tonight stems from the landing at the end of the routine, when he landed on his mic pack. Judges scores: 5,4,5. Two week total: 31/60.

Lil Kim and Derek Hough are dancing the quickstep tonight. They have done a great job dressing Kim up like a lady, but can she back the looks up with the correct posture and carriage for this smooth, elegant dance? I have to admit she is floating across the floor with more ease than I thought she would, but she hits some of the moves much harder than she should have. Judges scores: 8,7,8. Two week total: 44/60.

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani are up next with a salsa. I wonder if Tony showed Melissa our salsa lessons as part of her training? There has been a lot of fuss made in the media this last week about Melissa’s dance training in ballet and as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, but she hasn’t had any more training than any of the other past contestants, and ballroom is such a different form. It was clear that she is just putting the work in like the rest of the contestants from the practice footage. Judges scores: 9,8,9. Let me quote Drew Lachey here….”WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” Two week total: 49/60. Hey boss, if you hoist the trophy, do I get to hold it? Pretty please?

Our final couple of the night is Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke, dancing the quickstep. Listening to Cheryl during the practice footage, I kept waiting for her to tell him he had spaghetti arms! I didn’t think Gilles would be as adept at the smooth dances, but he’s doing a great job with this number! I never would have thought of this song for a quickstep, but it really worked, and I loved the Clark Kent/Superman turn. Judges scores: 9,9,9. Two week total: 51/60.

That’s it for tonight, we’ll see you back here tomorrow for the results recap.

Keep Dancing,
Ballroom Dance Channel

Dancing with the Stars 8: Season Premiere

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars! If you want to cha cha and waltz like the stars you’ve seen tonight, please visit us at Ballroom Dance Channel. With our All Access Pass, you can learn as many dances as you’d like at your own pace, for under $10 a month! If you want to take our lessons on the go, please visit us at the ITunes App Store . Now, on with the show!

Wow! The makeover for the ballroom is simply stunning! The new staircases are so pretty, and I hear that they added about 200 more seats. Hopefully this will mean more of the fans of the show that wait for hours to see if they will get in will be able to attend the show tapings!

Our first couple tonight is Lil Kim and Derek Hough. They are dancing the cha cha this evening, and next week will dance the quickstep. Kim looks like she can move quite well, but when they are doing their dance, she seems choppy to me, moving from segment to segment with no fluidity and grace. Maybe I’m just spoiled from seeing Derek with last season’s champion, Brooke Burke, who had a natural, flowing grace from week one! Judges Scores: 7,7,7.

Dancing second tonight are Belinda Carlisle and Jonathan Roberts. I missed Jonathan last season much more than I thought I would, but I am very happy for him that he went back and competed and won a title with new partner Valentina! Belinda has a hard time with spins the same way that Kelly Monaco did in season 1, but she seems to be powering through it nicely in the beginning of their Viennese waltz. She needs to relax and let Jonathan lead her, she is far too stiff and choppy, she really needs to finish her extensions. Maybe next week’s salsa will be more her style! Judges Scores: 6,6,5.

Our third couple is Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska. He’s dressed like Emmitt Smith, but I don’t get the same warmth or sincerity from him that Emmitt gives. I also wasn’t real fond of his trash talking Jason Taylor, who I still have a soft spot for! He does a credible job tonight, but needs more finesse and polish to break out from the crowd. Edyta carried him throughout the dance, showing him off as only she knows how! Judges scores: 6,5,5. Step it up, LT, Edyta deserves a better partner!

Next up is the duo of Steve O and Lacey Schwimmer. This pairing initially troubled me greatly. Lacey is one of my favorite pros, and Steve O didn’t have the world’s best reputation, so I was worried. Since the couples have been announced, I’ve been reading about their practices, and Steve’s work ethic impresses me. They are dancing the waltz tonight. I love Lacey’s costume! Steve is a bit too stiff, like he is overly concerned with his frame, but he does a very credible job, and I have to say he actually has very nice lines. I don’t know that he’s headed for the finals, but I have no objection to him being on the dance floor for the next several weeks. Judges scores: 6,5,6.

Ooh, is it hot in here? Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke are dancing next, a cha cha tonight, if you please. WOW! Gilles has some really nice lines tonight. I’m impressed, and he seems to be funny and charming, as well. Cheryl looks beautiful, her hair is beautiful at that length. I think this couple is going to be in it for quite some time, they have all the right elements! Judges scores: 8,8,8.

Sigh. Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough are up. Oh, and they are dressed like they belong on the top of a wedding cake. I’m not thrilled about this pairing, and haven’t been since they announced it. I don’t think it is right to allow a real life pairing to compete together on this show, because if nothing else, they have a built in chemistry that the other couples cannot draw from. I’ll try and focus just on their dancing, I promise. Chuck seems to be a very capable lead, and Julianne has choreographed a routine that clearly plays to that strength, but I have seen a couple of missteps, and there was a very obvious lift at the end of the number. Let’s see if the lift police bust them for it! Judges Scores: 6,7,7.

Holly Madison is stepping in to replace Jewel with Dmitry Chaplin. Right off the bat, I have to give Holly props and stepping up on such short notice. Holly has had 5 days of training, and really put her all into the routine. It really is a testament to what a good teacher Dmitry is that Holly did so well with so little training. Next week they will have the quickstep, and she will have had some more time to learn what she needs to continue in the competition. Judges scores: 6,6,6.

After Holly and Dmitry dance, we learn that Ballroom Dance Channel’s own Tony Dovolani will be paired with Melissa Rycroft, who has stepped in on 48 hours notice! Following this announcement, we meet our next couple, Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower. Ty is a rodeo champion, and Chelsie will look very familiar to fans of So You Think You Can Dance. They have the cha cha tonight. Ty’s a real cutie, and he tried very hard, but he isn’t a natural dancer, and it showed. I think he’ll be more comfortable in the smooth quickstep next week. Chelsie gave it her all, and I hope America remembers why they loved her so much last summer and supports this couple with their votes. Judges scores: 5,4,5. Ty, stop being so hard on yourself, and I hope America stands behind you!

Shawn Johnston and Mark Ballas are up next, and they also have the Viennese Waltz this week. Wow, Mark looks so TALL! I’ve read a lot of places where Shawn is picked to be the winner this year. I think technically she will be superb, but she will struggle with her emotion just like Kristi Yamaguchi did. She said it in their practice footage, that in sport, emotion is weakness. Shawn and Mark are a stunning couple on the floor, and she is doing a lovely job of showing emotion tonight, and with such a romantic dance, they played it well without going over the top. Judges scores: 8,8,7.

Next are Steve “IWoz” Wozniak and Karina Smirnoff. I’m looking forward to seeing how IWoz can do. He seems like such a big teddy bear of a man who really wants to learn and do this well. I’ve developed a soft spot for him the more I have read about him, and I hope he has some ability to go with that infectious smile. I can imagine that this must be very hard for an analytical mind like his! I think he did a credible job, but he has some work to do in order to stay in the competition. Judges scores: 5,4,4. Like Ty, I think the Woz will have strength in the smooth dances.

David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson is our next couple to dance the Viennese Waltz. David seems to be one of those people that everyone is going to assume is just a big goof, but will be very good. He’s taking this very seriously, as are all the competitors this season. David has beautiful extensions, and naturally flows from movement to movement with grace and style. Judges scores: 6,7,6.

Denise Richards and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are dancing the cha cha tonight. Denise is coming into the competition with no formal dance training. I wasn’t sure what to make of her when she called Maks “Maksipoo” on Good Morning America, but she’s growing on me, because she isn’t afraid to be real. WOW! Denise has some real potential, but Maks is right, she’s got to stop apologizing, and just start learning. I think she’ll get there, she just has to trust herself a little more. It is clear she trusts Maks, she just needs to believe in herself a little more. Judges scores: 6,6,6. Not bad!

Last, but not least, are Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani. Come on, boss, show us what you’ve got! This is a real test to who Tony is as an instructor, but at least they have found a capable woman to step in at the very last minute. Melissa has trained in ballet and is a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. I’m thinking that means she’ll have the grace to pull off the smooth dances, and the cheekiness needed for the Latins. One thing is for sure, this couple looks beautiful together! They are a good physical match with the height and coloring. 2 DAYS! 2 DAYS, and that was hands down the performance of the night! She was all teary at the end, and so am I. Melissa has beautiful lines, amazing extensions, and unlimited potential. Judges scores: 8,7,8. Good job, you two, and Melissa, thank you so much for stepping in!

Well, that’s it for tonight. We will see you back here next Monday for the second round of competition, and a week from tomorrow for our first results show, which will feature Jewel as our guest singer. Thanks for reading!

Keep Dancing,
Ballroom Dance Channel
