Sara Evans to Perform on 'Dancing With the Stars' Season Finale

Sara EvansCountry singer -- and former 'DWTS' contestant -- Sara Evans returns to ABC's 'Dancing With the Stars' Tuesday night to perform her latest multi-week No. 1 hit, 'A Little Bit Stronger,' on this season's finale.

In 2006 Evans was the first country artist to compete on the show when she was paired with Tony Dovolani, who she said at the time was "sent from God."

"Being on 'Dancing With the Stars' was such a fun experience and one of the highlights of my career," Sara says. "I'm so honored and excited to go back and sing for this season's finale!"

This time the singer doesn't have to worry about the judges criticizing her dance moves, which she said shocked her after the first dance, a Foxtrot, because she believed she and Tony did pretty well, considering she had never danced before. However, the three judges thought differently.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 3 Results

Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli - Dancing With The Stars
(S07E07) Things were a little different for the results show this week. The unfortunate injury that forced Misty May-Treanor out of the competition left the producers in a quandary. If they were to eliminate another team, they would be a week short for the planned season. Personally, I would have rather seen an elimination tonight and an extra week tacked on somewhere down the line. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. Much like what we saw when Sara Evans quit the show, they stretched, and stretched, before getting to the announcement. Along with that slow coming revelation, they also managed to have the best collection of music and dance of the season so far.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 6

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.

Sara Evans quits Dancing With the Stars

Sara EvansWow. Didn't see that one coming. Sara Evans announced on Thursday that she is filing for divorce. And according to her representative at BMG, she has decided to leave Dancing With The Stars so she can focus her attention on her family. The country singer has had a successful run on the show with her partner Tony Dovolani. Her enormous fan support, and a little help from her friends, has pushed her through the first five weeks of the competition, even though the pair have consistently received some of the lowest marks from the judges.

There is no information available regarding what the show is going to do. Given that it is two of the top ten shows on television, ratings wise, I don't see them shortening the run by a week. The simple answer would seem to be bringing back Willa Ford. She was eliminated this week, despite being one of the better dancers. ABC told E! that we will have to tune in on Tuesday to find out more.

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.

The first advertisement in the new campaign ran Wednesday on ABC.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 3 Results show

Harry and Ashly(S03E06) After all the craziness of performance night, this figured to be an interesting show. Of course, they covered all of the rule violations hubbub, and there was one thing that stood out to me.

This notion of, 'We didn't know we were breaking the rules' boggles me. How do you not know? Especially if the rule is 'No Lifts.' That's not hard to remember. It doesn't even require higher math. Just don't do lifts. It was good for them to have Len go through the basic rules. They should have done that on one of the earlier results shows.

Dancing: Odds in favor of Mario Lopez

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 12th 2006 3:49PM
mario lopezBecause people will bet on anything, the odds for ABC's Dancing with the Stars favor Mario Lopez for the win. Right now he's a 3-1 favorite, according to PinnacleSports.com. All he has going for him is, a long damn time ago, Lopez once danced and played drums on Disney's Kids Incorporated (two references in one week??). Just looking at the photos of the contestants, Lopez actually looks like he belongs while the others look awkward (especially Tucker Carlson).

The second and third favored are High School Musical star Monique Coleman with 9-2 and bald Joey Lawrence with 6-1 odds. Least likely to win, according to the odds, is Jerry Springer, followed by Shanna Moakler, Willa Ford and Sara Evans.

Dancing with the Stars debuts tonight at 8 pm.

Tom DeLay stumps for 'Dancing' contestant

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 8th 2006 1:42PM
sara evansThe future of America hinges on whether a Democrat or a Republican wins Dancing with the Stars! At least, that's what Tom DeLay will have his supporters believe. The Texas Congressman is actually on a mission to sway the vote in favor of one particular Dancing with the Stars contestant. According to this blogger, he sent a letter to his supporters encouraging them to call in and vote for country singer Sara Evans. Evidently she leans a little to the right. In his letter to supporters, DeLay said Evans "represents American values in the media." He also calls out fellow contestant Jerry Springer, calling him an "ultra liberal talk show host". So... what does it mean if Joey Lawrence wins?

Dancing with the Stars premieres on Tuesday, September 12th.

The new Dancing with the Stars cast is announced

Dancing with the StarsThe big news on Good Morning America this morning wasn't about the UK terror plot or the cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah. The big news was... drumroll please... the announcement of the new cast of Dancing with the Stars!

Thaaat's right, kiddies... the new group of has-beens, never-wases and out-of-place sports legends is now set to strut their stuff on the dance floor this fall, and this group is a doozy. We already knew that MSNBC's Tucker Carlson is participating, and there had been rumors that soon-to-be Hall of Fame running back Emmit Smith was going to be there, so those two aren't a big surprise. But we also get to see Jerry Springer, Joey ("Whoa!") Lawrence, Vivica A. Fox, Harry Hamlin (probably glomming on wife Lisa Rinna's success last year), Willa Ford, Monique Coleman of High School Musical, Sara Evans, Mario Lopez, and model and ex-Mrs. Barker Shanna Moakler (probably in the spot that was reserved for Beth Ostrosky).

Looks like it's going to be an interesting season. Maybe Emmit Smith will surprise everyone and win it all. Cowboy fans must be hiding their heads in their hats right now.
