Dancer, Actor & Rocker

Novemeber 6, 2009
Derek Hough is a Professional Dancer, Actor and Singer who is teamed up with swimsuit model Joanna Krupe to make an eye candy of a couple. But can Derek really act and sing? Watch the Rumba Training beach scene video below and you tell me about his acting skills. Next, watch Derek and Mark Ballas sing on "People" and then deliver their new song "Move" on DWTS last week. Again, you make the call if he can really sing.

Odds or Solar Arcs point the way

November 5, 2009
Who knows who will win the Mirror Ball season 9? Ever consider the betting Odds or someone's "Solar Arcs?" Every DWTS fan has an opinion whether Kelly, Mya, Donny, Joanna or Aaron will move on but why not ask the Vegas and Astrology experts who they favor or sense will have the best chance for success

According to Las Vegas oddsmakers TheSpread.com on Sept 11th, Aaron Carter was favored to win Season 9 at 3 to 1 odds. Mya was second at 4 to 1, Donny 5 to 1, Joanna came in at a surprising 15 to 2, while Kelly faced grave odds of winning at 20 to 1. Others of note included Macy Gray at 5 to 1, Michael Irvin and Nataie Coughlin both at 7 to 1, and Tom DeLay at 25 to 1.
The most recent odds below have Aaron improving to 2 to 1 odds, however, Mya is now considered an "Even" bet and the favored to win it all. Donny is sitting at nice 1.25 to 1 odds, while Joanna is right there at 3 to 1. Kelly has improved to 7.5 to 1 but she's still a longshot for sure.

Astrologist Lauren Delsack feels Donny has a "Sense of Gemini" going for him during DWTS. Looking into his "Natal" and "Draconic" chart reveals more reasons as to why Donny may win. Donny's "Solar Arcs" and "Transits" give him a pretty picture.

Odds and Solar Arcs, it just might come down to these important and perhaps overlooked perspectives when considering who will win the Mirror Ball.
Do you factor in Las Vegas odds or Astrology signs when considered the DWTS winner?

AB Power no match for Flu!

Novemeber 4, 2009
The Flu bug has taken it's toll on DWTS season 9 and week 7 was no exception. Donny Osmond used strong will power and anything legal to get through his flu and dance into the next week's round of 5, Lacey Schwimmer could not do the same. Michael Irvin and Mark Decascos both used their incredible 40's-something AB's to become complete dancers and help fend off the flu but got eliminated last night anyway. Can any of the remaining 5 DWTS competitors and their dance partners get the flu and still advance?

Bye-Bye Mike & Mark

Jimmy Kimmel & the AB Twins

The Flu hits DWTS!!

The 5 competitors left are all good enough to win the coveted Mirror Ball. If any of the remaining 5 contestants or their dance partner gets the flu, will they still advance or is it too difficult now to simply Osmond by with judge empathy and a large amounts of fan votes?
Thanks for sharing your opinion here


Maturity at 21

November 2, 2009
Former Backstreet Boy Aaron Carter has matured right before our eyes season 9 of DWTS. Right? Rumors of his gayness and also of sleeping with dance partner Karina Smirnoff do not faze him at all. Even the tough judging early on in the competition only served to help Aaron see that at 21 years old, he needed to grow up on-camera right now or else face immediate elimination. Check out the fun photo's of a young Aaron and the new dance Karina and him did on "The Ellen Show." The women of "The View" show are okay with immature Aaron who cry's and danced a fluffy Lambada. Aaron showed off his new found maturity best in the elegant Waltz dance on DWTS. He is more mature as a dancer but is Aaron really like that off camera?

Congrats to Aaron and Karina for making it this far in the DWTS dance competition. Another double elimination show is next.
Aaron's new maturity while dancing on-camera is real. At 21 years old and with a 16-year Entertainment career already under his belt, do you feel that Aaron is acting more mature while off-camera as well?

You gave a fair score of 8 for Michael and Anna's graceful Waltz last evening, while Bruno and Carrie Anne agreed the dance deserved a 6. As Len pointed out, watch Michael's footwork, he was airy light on his feet. Even front-runners Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson scored 8's when a 9 or 10 was more approriate for their engaging Jitterbug. In the Kelly Osbourne B-Day video below, Anna mentions how Michael and her have no chance if they are in tonight's new dance-off finals. If Michael and Anna are in the dance-off, I hope the DWTS judges give them a fair score!

Recently deceased and DWTS favorite, Patrick Swayze reprised his role as Johnny Castle. Mya has a supporting role as a singer in the film. Is perhaps fate helping Mya with a silent hand season 9? Mya in Havana Nights TrailerThe Washington, D.C.-bred performer, who was also featured in the Oscar-winning film Chicago, shared some of the plot details. “Dirty Dancing 2 is a movie called Havana Nights, it was shot in Puerto Rico,” Mya said. “It takes place during the Cuban Revolution and the movie actually involves a lot of Afrocentric, Brazilian, Latin-inspired dance, as well as love, and the history, as well as racial tension.”Patrick Swayze in Havana NightsDoes Mya's Havana Nights connection to the legendary Patrick Swayze help give her a DWTS edge?Chime in here SUBMITTED BY RRoble ADD A COMMENT God Save The Seals!

He survived into the fourth week of the show. But after he performed a two-step dance with partner Anna Trebunskaya on Monday night, the judges gave Liddell a low score of 17 out of 30 points. He was eliminated on Tuesday's show. Trebunskaya's husband, Jonathan Roberts, was eliminated in the second round with his assigned celebrity partner, singer Macy Gray. After that he helped his wife train Liddell. "I'm going to give them a vacation for helping me out," said Liddell, who also made friends with cast members Michael Irvin, Louie Vito and Donny Osmond. "Donny was a great guy to hang around with," he said. "I'm going to be in Vegas (today), and I'm going to check out his show." While he was critical of the judges — who he said were more celebrities than bona fide judges — Liddell was also critical of his dancing. "I'm not complaining about my scores," he said, acknowledging he lacked technical skills. "But them ragging on my two-step — and in the same manner Louie's two-step — none of them know how to judge a two-step. They don't do the two-step.""Two-Step" Chuck took the DWTS judges comments about his dance skills in stride and is not angry with them whatsoever. Chuck is shown below in a funny video clip with Anna on the Jimmy Kimmel Show last week to prove it. The shows host Jimmy Kimmel pokes constant fun at Chuck and calls him an "Iron Giant," claims he was injured a few weeks back and razed Lidell about his dress progression as the weeks went by. Chuck is a good sport, thanks for being on DWTS!!Is the "Iron Giant" right at all when he says the DWTS judges "don't know what they are talking about half the time anyway?"Add your thoughts hereSUBMITTED BY RRobleADD A COMMENT DWTS Tour Cancelled?

Let DWTS know how you feel here and stay tuned for more details as this story continues to break, in the meantime, here is a clip to enjoy from last year's DWTS tour stop in Philadelphia. SUBMITTED BY RRobleADD A COMMENT The Charleston - The Roaring Twenties October 16, 2009The Charleston was one of four new dances on DWTS last show along with the Two-Step, Bolero and Lambada. When Judge Bruno exclaimed to Mellisa Joan Hart that she was a "Flapper Girl" and Judge Len sensed she had the right "Channel, Energy and Spirit" it was on to get to the bottom of this super fast dance. The Charleston dance became popular after appearing along with the song, "The Charleston," by James P. Johnson in the Broadway musical Runnin' Wild in 1923. Although the origins of the dance are obscure, the dance has been traced back to blacks who lived on an island off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina (which is why the dance is called "Charleston"). The Charleston dance had been performed in black communities since 1903, but did not become internationally popular until the musical debuted in 1923. The music for the Charleston is ragtime jazz, in quick 4/4 time with syncopated rhythms. The dance uses both swaying arms and the fast movement of the feet. To begin the dance, one first moves the right foot back one step and then kicks backwards with the left foot while the right arm moves forward. Then both feet and arms are replaced to the start position and the right foot kicks forwards while the right arm moves backwards. This is done with a little hop in between steps. The Charleston dance became extremely popular in the 1920s, especially with Flappers. The dance could be done by oneself, with a partner, or in a group.Melissa and MarkDo you think Mellisa and Mark deserved a 10 score for their Charleston?SUBMITTED BY RRoble ADD A COMMENT Mario Lopez a fan of Shakira October 15th, 2009Sharika unleashed her brand new song "She Wolf" during the DWTS results show on Tuesday. One her fans is actor Mario Lopez. Lopez and dance partner Karina Smirnoff where on DWTS during season 3 in the fall of 2006. Mario came in 2nd place overall losing to Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke even though his scores averaged higher overall. "Those hips don't lie," Lopez says about the Colombian pop beauty. But Lopez's Dancing with the Stars judges are equally complementary about his moves. Judge Bruno Tonioli calls him "Super Mario" because of his hip-swiveling moves, while Carrie Ann Inaba tells PEOPLE, he's "very sexy, very spicy" and "tapped into his athleticism and sensuality."So, who is the better dancer, Shakira or Mario? SUBMITTED BY RRobleADD A COMMENT DWTS Patrick Swayze Tribute October 14, 2009DWTS honors the passing up Patrick Swayze. He died Sept 14, 2009 at the age of 57 after his determined battle to defeat pancreatic cancer. Patrick made a guest appearance on Dancing's inaugral U.S. season in 2005, teaching friend and fellow actor John O'Hurley a few dance moves in rehearsal. Swayze showed up at the end of season 1 to offer his continued support. “We have some very fond memories of [the late actor] coming to help us our when we were a tiny little show way back when,” Dancing’s executive producer Conrad Green says.

After all, we're talking family here!SUBMITTED BY RROBLEADD A COMMENT Trapped in the Closet with Donny Osmond October 13, 2009 I have to admit I am trapped in the closet with Donny Osmond.I don't mean that Donny is in the closet [see excessive display of affection from Donny to Bruno in week 3], I mean I AM in the closet about Donny Osmond and here's why:I like him. More than I would like to like him. He's slowly becoming one of my faves and it pains me to say this. I want to be ok with it, but it bothers me because of the Donny Osmond checklist we go through every single week. Watch Donny Osmond Dance. The Donny Osmond Checklist:#1. Pre-dancing video of Donny in practice, and somehow this week's dance is more daunting than anything he's done before. A lot of people say this, but it's not true with Donny because he's been performing since he was a fetus.#2. The performance. It's always high-energy and pretty darn good. When you IMDb Donny to see how old he is, you find out he's 52 and you are like "No f******* way!" This is how Donny stakes his claim on your heart.#3. Donny hates the idea of offending anyone in America. Case in point, after he displayed excessive love towards Bruno, he disclaimed it the following week. Donny, bubby, just suck it up and let America know you are ok with having fun and playing around. No reason to go homophobic on us. #4. Donny is seriously cheesy. But the cheesiness doesn't bother me as much as when he's disingenuous. See #3.#5. After getting the judges scores and sucking up to them a bit, he profusely thanks Kim and tells America what a wonderful teacher she is. Someone needs to do a YouTube mashup of all the sucking up that Donny does during the few moments he gets to talk on camera. So, there you have it. And despite it all, I still love him. He really is a great performer and he puts everything into it every single week. Did I mention he's 52? No f******* way!Are you also Donny Osmond fan?SUBMITTED BY EGUYADD A COMMENT Samantha Harris on Broadway as Roxy October 13, 2009 So, this morning when I woke up I felt unsettled after watching Dancing with the Stars last night. Something was amiss in the universe, but I couldn't put my finger on it. And then I remembered a conversation between Samantha Harris and Kelly Osbourne: Samantha: "And you said you want to play Roxy on Broadway in Chicago. So, do you think you passed your audition here?"Kelly: "I don't know, you played Roxy, you tell me."Zounds! Samantha Harris played Roxy? This stirs up all kinds of questions. Did she wear a blonde wig? Did she sing and dance? Was it on Broadway like the REAL Broadway? I had a hard time picturing it, but lucky for us, the CBS Early Show did a story on this topic. Check it out:
Ok, I'm going to leave my opinion out of it because I'm curious about what you guys think. Can Samantha Harris sing and dance?SUBMITTED BY EGUYADD A COMMENT
