DWTS recap


It’s week 3 on Dancing With The Stars and the theme of this week was storytelling as each star had to tell a personal tale of love, loss, triumph or heartache.

But first things first as the big story of the night was pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 31, who took a fall on the dance floor bringing down his partner Kirstie Alley, 60. “My thigh just gave out. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry,” Maksim told the judges afterwards. “It has nothing to do with her.” Photos of the fall below.

The fall didn’t seem to affect their scores as the pair managed to earn a 21 for their rumba dance. Meanwhile the real stars of the night were model Petra Nemcova and NFL player Hines Ward, as they both earned the first 9s of the season. Petra finished the night with a high score of 25 for her “beautiful” waltz while Hines also tied for first place, after receiving a 25 score for his samba dance which he dedicated to his mom who was sitting in the front row.

Kendra Wilkinson showed some improvement earning her highest score of the season – a 23 for her hot rumba, which told the tale of her romance with NFL player Hank Baskett. Judge Len praised her “beautiful feet” and “gorgeous leg activity.”

Failing to show any improvement was talk show host Wendy Williams who continued to struggle. Wendy earned the lowest score of the night, a 15 for her foxtrot.

Below is the full scoreboard from last night -

Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 25
Petra Nemcova & Dmitry Chaplin: 25
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 23
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis van Amstel: 23
Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke: 21
Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 21
Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 21
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 20
Sugar Ray Leonard & Anna Trebunskaya: 20
Wendy Williams & Tony Dovolani: 15

Another celeb will get the boot tomorrow on the results show at 9/8c, which will also include performances by Selena Gomez and One Republic.

TELL US: WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING HOME TOMORROW NIGHT?

There were no surprises last night on Dancing With The Stars as the star with the lowest combined score from the first two dances got the boot.

Radio host “Psycho” Mike Catherwood was the first to be eliminated this season after finding himself in the bottom three with Wendy Williams and Sugar Ray Leonard.

“It’s been nothing but a pleasurable experience,” said Mike, 32, of his time on the show. “It sucks to be sent home first, but I’ve made a lot of good friends,” he added. “America obviously knows that Lacey Schwimmer is a beautiful person on the outside, but everybody needs to know she’s equally, if not more, beautiful on the inside. I’ve made a lifelong friend.”

Do not feel sorry for Mike yet as there continues to be rumblings that he is being considered to replace Regis Philbin on Live With Regis & Kelly. Mike, a guest host on the show recently, confirmed ABC has invited him back to co-host a future episode.

Singer Chris Brown performed two songs on the show last night and it all went without a glitch as no windows were broken nor was he interviewed by show host Tom Bergeron. See, following Chris’s outburst at GMA last week, there had been some controversy surrounding his DWTS performance.

Tom went on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this week and stated “I did tell the producers it may be to their advantage to not have me interview him.” The reason? “Don’t put me in a position where you’re asking me to not say something,” said Tom, adding “cause I won’t really do that. Even if it’s just a snarky little aside, you know, ‘How was your week?’”

Also, dancer Cheryl Burke spoke out against Chris this week. “As a victim of domestic violence, I don’t agree with him coming on the show, but it’s out of my control,” said Cheryl to Extra. Wendy Williams also stated on her talk show last week that she was “disgusted with this little boy” following his GMA incident.

Next week, the stars return to compete on Monday night with a clean slate.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON MIKE’S ELIMINATION & WAS ABC WRONG IN ALLOWING CHRIS BROWN TO PERFORM?


Dancing With the Stars returned for its 12th season on ABC Monday night with a night full of surprises!

Front runner Kendra Wilkinson did not come out on top despite being declared the early favorite. Kendra found herself closer to the bottom of the pack, only scoring an 18 for her cha cha dance.

The biggest surprise of the night however was 60-year-old Kirstie Alley who wowed both the audience and the judges with her high spirited cha cha dance, earning a score of 23. Kirstie and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy brought a lot of fun, energy and silliness into their dance. In fact, judge Bruno Tonioli declared it “the best of the night.”

And while Kirstie earned the highest score in the cha cha category, the ‘Karate Kid’ Ralph Macchio scored the highest points of the night, garnering a 24 for his foxtrot with partner Karina Smirnoff. “What an amazing surprise!” said Carrie Ann Inaba. “It shocked me that you had such elegance.” Len Goodman went on to declare his performance “the best foxtrot tonight.”

Failing to sizzle was talk show queen Wendy Williams, who earned a low score of 14 for her stiff cha cha with partner Tony Dovolani, who Wendy did not know who he was during their first meeting. USA Today‘s Ann Oldenburg called Wendy’s performance “awful” adding that “the talk show host was stiffer than Kate Gosselin when she took the floor for her cha cha cha.” Ouch.

Promising were Disney starlet Chelsea Kane and NFL player Hines Ward. Next Monday, all of the 11 stars will return to the ballroom for a new dance. Votes and scores from the first two weeks will be combined to determine who goes home on the first live results show next Tuesday, March 29.

The full scoreboard from last night is below -

Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 24
Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 23
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 21
Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 21
Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke: 19
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 19

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LAST NIGHT’S DEBUT? WERE YOU SHOCKED BY KIRSTIE’S GOOD PERFORMANCE?

Just like that, the 11th season of Dancing With The Stars will come to an end tonight!

Each of the three remaining celebrities had to perform two dances last night. The first was their “redemption” dances, which was assigned by the judges based on their past poor performances. This was then followed by their freestyle dance.

Perfect for the second week in a row was Jennifer Grey, earning a total of 60 for the night! Jennifer and partner Derek Hough did the paso doble for their redemption dance. “This is the meaning of redemption!” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Their freestyle also earned them praises from the judges.

Coming in second place for the second week in a row was Kyle Massey. Kyle earned a total of 56 points for the night. Kyle and partner Lacey Schwimmer were assigned the foxtrot for their redemption dance, earning them a score of 27. “Your footwork was much better,” said Len Goodman. “You’ve gone from messy Massey to marvelous!” Kyle fared better with his freestyle, earning a 29.

In last place was Bristol Palin and her partner Mark Ballas. Their redemption jive earned them 27 points and praises from the judges. They however scored less on their freestyle, bringing their score for the night to a total of 52 points.

Also premiering last night was Skating With The Stars, and the very long close to two hour premiere should have definitely been cut back to an hour. The leading scorer was Rebecca Budig who looked very smooth out there, scoring an impressive 45 out of 60 points. Bethenny Frankel didn’t fare so well, scoring a low 29 out of 60. The full DWTS and SWTS scores below -

DWTS Scores

  • Jennifer & Derek: 60 (30, 30)

It was seminfinals week on Dancing With The Stars and the remaining four stars brought their A game.

The stars had to perform two dances each last night, while also having to do a brief solo performance during their first dance number. The story of the night was the perfect score received by Jennifer Grey and partner Derek Hough, not once, but twice! Jennifer first received all 10s for her cha cha cha in addition to a standing ovation. And for the second dance of the night, she also received a perfect score of 30 for her waltz. “It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen,” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

Coming in second and third place were Kyle Massey and Brandy in that order. Kyle continued to impress receiving two scores of 29 for both of his dances. A point behind Kyle was Brandy and partner Maksim. Brandy received a total score of 57 for both of her dances, earning a perfect score of 30 for her feisty Argentine tango.

In last place for the seventh week in a row was Bristol Palin though she did receive high scores for her dances. A total of 53 for the night. Many are wondering if Bristol will sneak into the finals next week as the general consensus seems to be she is still in the competition due to the votes she is receiving from fans of her mother Sarah Palin.  Sarah is also now a reality star thanks to her new TLC show Sarah Palin’s Alaska, which reportedly scored very high ratings with over 5 million viewers tuning into the Sunday night premiere.

The full scores from last night below -

Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough 60 (30, 30)
Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer 58 (29, 29)
Brandy & Maks Chmerkovskiy 57 (27, 30)
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas 53 (27, 26)

TELL US – WHO SHOULD BE SENT PACKING TONIGHT?

With only two weeks left of competition, things continue to heat up on Dancing With The Stars.

For the second week in a row, Jennifer Grey and Brandy tied for first place.  Jennifer however had a slight edge after earning the first perfect score, a 30, of the season for doing her rumba instant dance.  And though there were some complaints about the change in rules last night for the second dances (the couples did not receive their music until about 45 minutes before they had to dance) it seems most of the stars excelled under pressure.

Tying for first place with Jennifer was Brandy, who also received a total score of 57 for her two dances.  Brandy and her partner Maksim first received a 29 for their waltz. “It was like a symphony – it was like a poem,” gushed Bruno Tonioli. The duo then received a score of 28 for their cha cha instant dance to Kate Perry’s “Teenage Dreams.”

At the bottom of the leader board for the second week in a row was Bristol Palin and partner Mark Ballas. Despite receiving some decent scores for both of her dances, a total of 47 points, Bristol is still at the biggest risk of being voted off on tonight’s results show.

The full scores from last night below -

Brandy & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 57 (29, 28)
Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough 57 (27, 30)
Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer: 56 (27, 29)
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas 47 (24, 23)
Kurt Warner & Anna Trebunskaya 48 (24, 24)

TELL US – WHO SHOULD BE SENT HOME TONIGHT?

It was rock week on Dancing With The Stars’ week 6, and all the stars had to dance the tango or the paso doble.

Coming out on top for the second week in a row was Brandy and her partner Maksim. The duo received a high score of 26 and praises from the judges for their hot tango dance. Carrie Ann called the dance”very impressive,” with Len Goodman calling their routine “the dance of the night.” Maksim’s former dance partner Erin Andrews was also present to cheer him on in the audience, and no, the two are not dating.

The surprise of the night was Bristol Palin, who showed major improvement from a week before while also earning her highest score of the season. Bristol and partner Mark Ballas danced their tango to Orianthi’s “According to You,” with Carrie Ann stating the routine was “ridiculously amazing.” Bruno Tonioli called it her “best performance” of the season. Bristol and Mark received a score of 23.

The lowest score of the night went to former NFL player Kurt Warner and his partner Anna Trebunskaya. Kurt seemed to fumble on his paso doble dance, earning him a low score of 18, all 6s from the judges. Following the competition, Kurt, 39, told UsWeekly he felt the judges were a bit harsh on him. “We come out and we perform what we thought was a good dance and then get scores that aren’t so good,” said Kurt.

The dance scores from last night below, in addition to the scores from the dance marathon -

Brandy & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 36 (26, 10)

TELL US – WHO DESERVES TO GO HOME TONIGHT?

Week 5 of Dancing with the Stars brought us TV theme week, which had the stars and their partners dancing to the tune of our favorite classic TV theme songs.

Taking the lead this week was Brandy and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, as the two finally lived up to their potential (they were named the favorites before the season even started). The pair, who were also the first to dance, performed the quickstep to the theme song from “Friends” earning rave reviews and a score of 27. “It was, without doubt, your best dance,” judge Len Goodman said.

Coming in second place was Jennifer Grey and partner Derek Hough. The duo danced the foxtrot to the theme from “Married with Children.” They earned a good score of 25 as well as praises from Bruno who called it, “pristine, elegant, beautifully danced.”

In last place was Birthday girl Bristol Palin (she turned 20-years-old last night) and partner Mark Ballas. Despite donning a monkey costume to go along with their jive dance to the theme from “The Monkees,” the pair only earned a score of 18. Though Bristol received the lowest score of the night, she did hear some positive words from judge Carrie Ann Inaba. “Bristol, I’m so happy for you because this show is about making a transformation and trying someone new, and you really made a transformation,” said Carrie Ann.

The scores from last night below -

Brandy & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 27
