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.

It is week 4 on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, and the stars received two scores last night, one for their technique and another for their overall performance.

The best score of the night, along with the first 10s of the season, went to actress Jennifer Grey, who scored an impressive total of 56 points out of 60 for her sultry Argentine Tango. Jennifer and her partner Derek Hough (winner of last season) scored 27 for their technique and 29 for their performance.

Coming in second was Brandy and her partner Maksim. The duo danced a romantic rumba, earning a 22 for technique and 26 for performance, a total of 48. Audrina Patridge came in 3rd place earning a total of 46 points.

The lowest score of the night went to The Situation. It seems after 4 weeks of dancing, The Sitch has yet to show any solid improvement. He and partner Karina earned a 12 for technique, and a 16 for their performance, bringing their total to a very low 28. “That’s definitely a Situation,” he said upon hearing his low scores.

It was Story Night on week 3 of Dancing With The Stars following the departures of David Hasselhoff and Michael Bolton.

The night got kicked off with a hot samba dance courtesy of Jennifer Grey, who donned a sexy school teacher outfit, and partner Derek Hough. The duo received a good score of 24 for their dance number.

The biggest shocker of the night was the highest score going to Audrina Patridge and her partner Tony Dovolani. Audrina earned the first 9 of the season, receiving a total score of 26 for her waltz, which was called “the most touching dance of the night.” Audrina dedicated her waltz dance to our fallen troops and their families.

Also tying for second place with a score of 24 were Brandy and Rick Fox. The lowest score of night went to Margaret Cho, receiving a score of 18 for her not so impressive samba.

The results show is set to air tonight at 9/8c.  Michael Bolton will also be returning tonight, but fear not, as he is returning to sing and not to dance.  Susan Boyle was originally scheduled to perform but had to cancel due to a severe throat infection.  The scores from last night below -

Audrina Patridge & Tony Dovolani: 26
Brandy & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 24
Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough: 24
Rick Fox & Cheryl Burke: 24
Kurt Warner & Anna Trebunskaya: 23
Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer: 23
Florence Henderson & Corky Ballas: 20
The Situation & Karina Smirnoff: 20
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas: 19

Following his very low score of 12 on Monday night, Michael Bolton’s elimination on Dancing With The Stars came as no surprise to viewers.

Michael, 57, however seemed a bit stunned by his elimination. When asked if he was surprised, he told host Tom Bergeron, “Uh, yeah,” adding that he was “disappointed.” Michael however took things in stride stating that he met some “wonderful, warm, sincere … and gracious people.”

His partner Chelsie Hightower was however still a bit peeved at judge Bruno Tonioli’s brutal criticism on Monday night, when he referred to Michael’s jive as the worst in the show’s history. “It was very harsh,” she told UsWeekly Tuesday. “It was very, very harsh, and I don’t know where it came from. I really don’t. It was hard to hear.”

“He didn’t have anything constructive to say,” she added. “It’s just rude when someone works so hard, and they have never danced before, and then you give them that criticism.”

Meanwhile, despite being safe last night, singer Brandy had to deal with criticism from fans and viewers of the show regarding her attitude and treatment of partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Some fans felt she threw Maks under the bus on Monday night.

Maksim is however coming to Brandy’s defense in a new interview with E! Online. “I don’t know how to say it so that people understand it, so I’m just going to say it the way it is: Brandy’s probably going to be my best friend after the show is over and that’s a true fact. Brandy’s a sweetheart. She’s everything that a real person is. I’ve been hearing a lot of comments saying she’s a diva. She’s not a diva at all. While I’m flattered that people came to my protection, I really need to make sure people understand there’s nothing to protect because she didn’t try to hurt me….We are amazing friends. We are!” stated Maksim.

And finally, the show attempted to put an end to boogate last night when several media outlets speculated that Sarah Palin was booed by the audience. Footage was shown to try to shut down those rumors. I’m personally not sure where the Sarah Palin was booed rumors came from, as it never crossed my mind on Monday night. I simply assumed the audience was booing the 24 score the judges gave to Jennifer Grey, who gave a rather impressive performance.

It’s official! Following weeks of speculation, ABC has officially confirmed Brad Womack will be returning as the new Bachelor.

The announcement came during last night’s episode of Dancing With The Stars.  For those of you not familiar with Brad, he was the season 11 Bachelor back in 2007, and became infamous after dumping both of his final two picks.

ABC is however claiming Brad, 37, is now a changed man.  According to the network, Brad has undergone “intensive therapy” and has been on a “quite painful journey of self-awareness” since the 2007 fiasco.

Brad, a Texas bar owner, is also set to appear on the Ellen show today, during which he will admit to having some “commitment issues” in the past.

“More importantly, that [Bachelor] process is difficult,” said Brad in the Ellen interview. “I thought that I was as open as I was supposed to be and clearly I wasn’t. I walked away and wound up all alone and left two girls standing there.”

Brad also assures fans of the show that things will be different this go.  “I know it’s tough to believe it’s a television show but…I am a completely different person. I don’t want to visit that thought.”

Moving right along to last night’s Dancing With The Stars episode.  For the most part, all of the stars showed major improvement over their first dance with the sole exception of Michael Bolton, who earned the lowest score of the night – a 12 for his dull jive, which Bruno called the worst jive dance in the history of the show.

Despite being toted as the one to beat, Brandy and partner Maksim failed to impress last night, falling to the middle of the pack with a score of 21.  The highest score of the night once again went to Jennifer Grey, scoring a 24 for her impressive quickstep dance.

A full recap of last night’s scores below -

Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough: 24
Audrina Patridge & Tony Dovolani: 23
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas: 22
Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer: 22
Brandy & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 21
Kurt Warner & Anna Trebunskaya: 21
Rick Fox & Cheryl Burke: 21

The 11th season of Dancing With The Stars premiered last night on ABC. While the general consensus amongst critics seems to be that this cast is not as good as last season’s, E! Online is reporting today that with over 21 million viewers tuning in last night, the ratings are up 3.5 million viewers from last fall’s premiere.

Last night brought us some great surprises, Kyle Massey anyone? While some other stars failed to sizzle on the dance floor. Three of the stars tied for last place with a score of 15. Those stars are The Situation, Margaret Cho, and David Hasselhoff. In the case of The Situation, he had a bit of an excuse as he only had 6 days to practice before the premiere, compared to the 3 weeks his competitors had.

The belles of the ball last night would have to be Brandy and Jennifer Grey. Brandy received praises from the judges for her graceful Viennese Waltz to go along with her score of 23. Jennifer Grey also danced the waltz following her emotional practice session with partner Derek Hough. Jennifer scored the highest point of the night, receiving a 24. Trying for second place alongside Brandy was Kyle Massey, who shocked the audience with his great Cha Cha Cha performance.

Despite the comparisons to Kate Gosselin, Bristol Palin gave a solid performance, receiving a score of 16. The most talked about event of the night however came in the form of an absence from the show. Despite numerous reports from multiple media outlets confirming that Sarah Palin would be at the show last night, the former Governor of Alaska ended up being a no show. According to the Today Show, Sarah had a last minute change of heart and decided she did not want to steal the spotlight away from daughter Bristol. Sarah will reportedly attend next week’s show.

Unlike last season, one of the dancing couples will be eliminated during the first week of competition. The results show airs tonight on ABC at 9/8c.

The photos are here! ABC has released the official costume photos of the Dancing With The Stars season 11 cast.

There is however one cast member missing from the photos, as MTV reality star, The Situation, was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore when the photos were taken.

Above is this season’s Kate Gosselin Bristol Palin with partner Mark Ballas. Oddly enough, Bristol mentioned last week that she planned on wearing the most modest outfits and planned on being the most dressed contestant. Perhaps the above outfit is conservative in Alaska.

Bristol also appeared on the Tonight Show Friday, during which she denied the rumors of being a diva. “Literally, I was thinking about it today: the only thing I’ve ever asked for is a velcro mic pac so I don’t have to wear it on my belt loop,” she said. “That’s the only thing I’ve ever asked for.”

As for how she got on the show, Bristol mentioned she received a text message while working as an office manager at a dermatologist’s office in Alaska, and jumped at the opportunity. “Within the next week, we had signed the contract. Some people are like, ‘Do you really want to be in the spotlight?’ but I’m having fun with it,” said Bristol.

And when it comes to her dancing skills, the 19-year-old admits she is “so uncoordinated and I don’t have any rhythm.” Her partner Mark however reveals Bristol has been making good progress in her dancing.

The favorites to win at the moment? Brandy and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy according to Las Vegas odds.

Levi JohnstonBristol Palin

Buckle up folks, it seems we have us an all new Jon Gosselin/Kate Gosselin 2.0.

Just a day after E! Online broke the news of Bristol Palin joining the cast of Dancing With The Stars, Bristol’s baby daddy/2x former fiance/Playgirl model Levi Johnston is now adding his own 2 cents to the news.

Levi, 20, appeared on CBS’ “The Early Show” this morning and spoke about Bristol and his mayoral race. Yes, he’s planning to run for mayor in his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.

See, Bristol, 19, has criticized Levi for being obsessed with fame in the past, even citing that as the reason she ended their second engagement. So upon hearing the news that Bristol will be a contestant on the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars,” Levi stated, “I don’t think I’m any more obsessed with making a career out of this than she is.”

He added, “Obviously she’s doing Dancing with the Stars. I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with any of it. I’m just taking it as it comes.” Bristol has also previously appeared on an episode of ABC’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.”

Popeater is also reporting today that a source close to Bristol tells them she “is excited and scared and hopes she gets Maksim Chmerkovskiy as her partner.”

In other DWTS related news, more names continue to leak out before the official Monday announcement from ABC. E! News is reporting today that Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson, Singer Michael Bolton, former NBA Player Rick Fox, and Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey have all been added to the cast.

The above stars join the previously confirmed Brandy, The Situation, Audrina Patridge, and David Hasselhoff.

E! also confirms the following stars will not be a part of the upcoming season – Kirstie Alley, Landon Donovan, Troy Aikman, or anyone for the Bachelor(ette) franchise.
