Dancing with the Stars: Week 9 results

Joey Lawerence and Edyta Silwinska(S03E18) And we're back to find out who is going to face off in the big three dance finale next week. It's been a crazy season for Dancing with the Stars. We had strange eliminations (Vivica), stranger non-eliminations (Jerry), and the two week adventure of Saragate. All things considered though, I think the voters picked a good final three. You could make a case for Willa to still be in the competition, but Emmitt, Joey, and Mario are all deserving.

Mario & Karina(S03E17) I got the feeling that some of the staff may have had vacation time to use up this week. They didn't even put in the effort to stretch the show. Instead we were given a clip show of past performances for the first half hour of the show. That was a little underhanded, but they did pick some of the really great performances to show. A couple of my favorites: Edyta and Kym dancing while Rod Stewart did "Hot Legs", Edyta, Karina, Maksim, and Tony with Lionel Richie performing, and the great SWOP demonstration.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 8 results

Joey & Edyta(S03E16) I'm amused by the hoops they have to jump through to stretch the results out to an hour. Seven minutes of rehashing last night to kick off the show. I realize that filling the 58 minutes of the hour that aren't the results is a chore each week. But aren't we pretty safe assuming that the vast majority of the people watching the results show also tuned in for the competition?

Monique and Louis were awarded the encore for their cha cha cha. Really, any of the couples could have been given the encore this week. They all danced very well. When they chose Monique and Louis I took that as confirmation that they were leaving and the producers wanted to give her the best possible send off.

Carrie Anne Inaba(S03E15) Final Four! Not just final four, but Halloween final four. Fog machines, fake spiders, and bad acting from Samantha. I think you could make a case that maybe Willa Ford deserved to be in this group, but with or without her, it is a pretty impressive bunch of dancers. From a dancing perspective, as well as a ratings one, this has been a very successful season. And things only pick up from here.

I couldn't do screencaps this week, and ABC didn't have any images up yet, so instead we have a picture of DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba as Fook Yu in Goldmember. She's on the left. And just for crazy TV trivia buffs, Fook Mi was played by Diane Mizota, who you may remember as the host of G4's Filter, or as Katy on Undressed. Anyway, two dances for everyone tonight, so on with the show.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 7 Results

Edyta & Alec(S03E14) And we're back for the big two week elimination show. It's a big week as it gets us down to the final four. After this, the competition gets serious. Anyone that makes it past tonight has a legitimate shot to win the whole thing. Emmitt & Cheryl kick things off after the judges pick them for the encore this week. That's a good choice. Emmitt has surprised me more than anyone else this season. He just keeps getting better.

Martina McBride takes the stage next to sing "This One's For The Girls." I wasn' t crazy about the dress. It looked like something from the Star Trek Maternity line. Wardrobe snafu aside, that's a good song. The musical guests this season have been really good. Being a top five show has it's perks.

Jerry & Kym(S03E13) After no eliminations last week, everyone returns to dance again. The scores and votes from tonight will be added to those of last week for the elimination show tomorrow. And this week, to make it even tougher, everyone will perform twice. Things are getting serious on Dancing with the Stars. Well, except for Jerry.

And for those of you playing along at home, the real final result of Saragate? The Nielsen top 20 for last week finds DWTS at #2 and #4. Wow. To put that in perspective, Survivor was #20.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 6 Results

Samantha Harris(S03E11) Really, the dragging out of the decision for what to do about Sara leaving is just stupid. The show is getting great ratings already. It doesn't need to jerk viewers around to get them to keep watching. It's a cheap gimmick. Teasing it before going to every commercial break, and pushing it to the last three minutes smacked of local news, and that's not a compliment.

The judges chose Mario & Karina for the encore. That was a good choice. They were clearly the best this week. And they do another great performance, with the exception of a mistake at the end when they get their hands all mixed up during their spins. Lionel Richie came out and performed All Night Long while Maksim, Tony, Edyta, and Karina did the Samba. Really cool performance. Lionel still sounds great, and that was an excellent song choice.

Sara Evans(S04E11) Well, this was the show everyone was waiting for. What would they do now that Sara Evans has quit the show? Apparently, add more filler. I haven't been timing them, but it seemed like the pre-dance packages were longer this week. But if you have to stretch to fill time, having the pros come out to do every style of dance on the show is a good way to do it. The show is about the celebrities, but the pros are what makes it go. And it's nice to get to see them do their thing every once in a while. They are a crazy talented bunch.

As to Sara, they teased it for 83 minutes before finally getting to Tom's interview. I didn't expect Tom to go all Ed Bradley on Sara asking about the divorce, the hard drive, etc. There wasn't anything covered that hasn't been in all the reports going around. She explained her side of everything well and you can't fault her for dropping out. What they didn't reveal is how the show will deal with Sara leaving early. We'll have to tune in tomorrow to find that out. For now, on with the show.

Dancing With the Stars: Week 5 Results show

Willa & Maksim - Dancing With the Stars(S03E10) And here we are for another week of results. After a recap of performance night, the judges choose Jerry & Kym for the encore. bhivxcvvyvbndij <-- That's what hitting myself in the head with the keyboard looks like in text. Am I just not getting the attraction to Jerry?

Things take a turn for the better as Rod Stewart performs Hot Legs while Edyta and Kym dance. This was really good. Rod's still got it. A bit of a departure from what we are used to seeing Edyta and Kym doing, but still fun. They both looked great and did a nice job.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 5

Dancing with the Stars(S03E09) And we're back for week 5 of Voting With the Entertaining Stars. We've got 90 minutes of airtime to get out the numbers for voting, so why don't we kill the time by having our stars dance. Don't worry, the dancing doesn't have to factor into the voting at all. Really. Yes, I'm growing a little cynical with the scoring system for the show. I think it hurts what is otherwise a good show. And now the judges are just adding to that problem, but more on that later.

This week the stars are choosing between the samba and the rumba. With a couple notable exceptions, there has been some great improvement among the celebrities. It made for a pretty impressive show overall. My apologies for the lack of screencaps this week, my PVR ate the file. That said, on with the show.

Dancing with the stars: Week 4 Results show

Vivica & Nick(S03E08) OK, I officially have no idea what is going on with the voting anymore. It would be nice if we actually got to see how everyone ended up, top to bottom, week to week. Then we could get out the slide rules and extrapolate some factors, maybe figure out just how that fan vote is going. Clearly it is playing a huge role.

Anyway... another long and drawn out results show. Willa and Maksim get the encore. I suspected it would be Mario, but nothing wrong with giving Willa the nod. They were very good this week. That was followed up by a performance by Los Lonely Boys, or as I like to think of them, the good band that was on the show this week.

Mario and Karina(S03E07) Well, there was no chance I would miss this week's show. Dancingwithsara.com sent me not one, but two reminders to watch. With that in mind, I'm guessing that the SaraARMY will be on the phones in force again. After the crazy, rule-busting, week 3 and the shake-ups it entailed, I was curious to see how things would go down.

This week the dances are the Waltz and the Pasa Doble. That is an interesting combination because it forces the dancers to choose one of two very different directions. A couple of those choices surprised me. Nothing tragic came of it, but I guess we won't know for sure until the results show tomorrow. With that in mind, on with the show.

Willa Ford(S03E05) Now that two teams have been cut, we're moving to a 90 minute show. It makes for a jam packed evening of dancing. Not much time left to dawdle. Of course, I'm sure there will be plenty of time to get the dawdling in on the results show. Anyway, this week we have the tango and the jive. I was under the impression that the male stars were doing the tango, and the females the jive. But that all went out the window at the end of the show and I'm still not quite sure why. Did I miss some announcement? Set me straight in the comments if I did. For now, on with the show.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 2 Results show

Tucker CarlsonAnother extended results show, but you can't argue with results. Am I the only one that is wondering why the stars and dancers all wear the same outfits for the results show that they wore on performance night? Not a big deal, just one of those things that makes you go hmmmmm... (mystery dancer hint)

Joey and Edyta get the encore this week, and it's well deserved. Then the pros all come out to dance to Rebel Yell. I gotta say, if you have to fill 55 minutes of your hour, this is a good way to do it. They are very impressive when they get to do their thing.

Dancing with the Stars Harry and Ashley with the laughing yogi(S03E03) Back again, with more dancing, and less Tucker. The big story this week leading up to the competition was whether Mario was being honest about his dance history. I think he was down playing his experience somewhat, but it really doesn't matter. At the end of the day, he's in the competition, and everyone is going to have to deal with it. And the dance is just a part of what gets a competitor through week after week, as we know. That said, on with the show. This week the celebrity men will be dancing the quickstep, while the celebrity women tackle the mambo.
