On the Scene: Will Florence Henderson Dance to the 'Brady Bunch' Theme on 'DWTS'?

Florence Henderson on 'Dancing With the Stars'More about this week's performance show of 'Dancing With the Stars' in a bit, but here's a great reason to already get excited about next week's performances: The stars and their dancing pro partners will be performing routines to hit TV show theme songs.

A few couples revealed what song they'll be dancing to on the post-show press line, but it's up in the air if the most natural choice, Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas twirling to the theme song from 'The Brady Bunch,' is going to happen. First, the duo has to survive tonight's elimination show. Second, the song needs to go through certain legal clearances so it can be used on the show.

Henderson told TV Squad, "We're hoping [we dance to 'The Brady Bunch' theme]. I can't imagine that they would not [clear it.]" Of course, as her partner, Ballas, pointed out, "But first, we have to get saved."

'Dancing With the Stars': It's 'Story Night,' As a New Couple Takes the Lead (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars': It's 'Storytime,' As a New Couple Takes the LeadIt's Story Night once again on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). The return of this theme meant that each couple's performance had to tell a tale ... in musical form. Last season's Story Night brought us the horrifying spectacle of Kate Gosselin dancing to 'Paparazzi' -- which was a notable train-wreck ... although it did give us this really awesome parody. But that's all in the past now. What would tonight bring for our contestants?

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]


Front-runners Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough did well, as always, getting a 24 out of 30. But the real star of the night was Audrina Patridge, who wowed the audience with her rendition of the waltz. Patridge and Tony Dovolani's dance "story" involved a tribute to fallen American soliders and their families. While the "story" section was a little mystifying -- it involved the Smoke Monster from 'Lost,' for some reason -- the dance itself was extremely moving.

Michael Bolton: 'Dancing With the Stars' Judge Should Apologize (VIDEO)

Michael BoltonIt didn't come as a big surprise that Michael Bolton got the boot on 'Dancing With the Stars' last night. The singer and his dance partner Chelsie Hightower scored a mere 12 points doing a jive on Monday night.

Host Tom Bergeron gave judge Bruno Tonioli an opportunity to amend, apologize for or even retract the harsh comment he gave Bolton on Monday's show (he called their jive "the worst ... in 11 seasons"). Instead, Tonioli held his ground.

Bolton called the judge's remarks "inappropriate" and "disrespectful."

On 'Good Morning America,' Bolton demanded an apology from Tonioli. "You heard the tone. Even Len [Goodman] stopped him and said, 'That's inappropriate,'" he said. "I think he should apologize publicly and be reprimanded for it."

On the Scene: Jennifer Grey Remembers Patrick Swayze on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Dancing With the Stars Cast
The first night jitters are officially out of the way. Twelve stars and their celebrity pro partners took to the dance floor and performed either a Cha-Cha or a Viennese Waltz on the 'Dancing With the Stars' season 11 opening night show. Actress Jennifer Grey, singer Brandy Norwood and athletes Rick Fox and Kurt Warner performed well -- as expected -- but the surprise of the night was teen actor Kyle Massey, who brought to mind a young Warren Sapp (Kym Johnson's season 7 partner) when he performed a dynamite dance with Lacey Schwimmer.

TV Squad was on the post-show press line to get reactions from all 24 participants. For one unlucky couple, alas, it's their second-to-last interview, because tonight one duo is going home.

Kimmel brought up the fact that she'd told him she would win the show. "At that time, did you believe that?" asked Kimmel. "I always believe what I say... but then that dancing stuff started," she joked.

Kate Gosselin Tries to Show Some Emotion on 'Dancing With the Stars' (VIDEO)

Kate Gosselin Tries to Show Some Emotion on 'Dancing with the Stars'Kate Gosselin apparently has a little pent-up emotion stored inside her. Maybe it's a result of her time on 'Jon & Kate Plus 8,' or maybe not. But at any rate, she's been having trouble expressing emotion while performing on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). So Gosselin consulted with an acting coach in order to help let her inner feelings out.

Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani Fight on 'DWTS' (VIDEO)

cing With the Stars, Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani FightKate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani clashed on last night's episode of 'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). Seriously, at one point, it looked like they might be done with the whole dancing business – or at least with each other.

But they managed to find their way back together and dance the Jive for the show. Unfortunately, it only scored a five from each of the judges, for a total of 15 out of 30 points. Kate is entertaining to watch for a variety of reasons, but you have to wonder if she's long for this competition.

If this clip is any indication, Kate Gosselin seems ready to move on from her failed marriage and leave ex-husband Jon behind. Gosselin cozied up to Tony Dovolani, her partner on the upcoming new season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' during an appearance today on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC).

Gosselin shamelessly batted her eyes at Dovolani during the interview and said she was ready for him to "beat her butt" during dance practice. You go, Kate!

ABC announces new cast of Dancing With the Stars

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 25th 2008 12:02PM
Dancing with the starsDancing With the Stars is a show that makes no sense to me. I understand the appeal of it; I'm usually very interested in any program that involves celebrities doing ridiculous things on national television and I know that people love bright shiny costumes, but it still somehow manages to hold no interest for me whatsoever.

With that said, I know that the announcement of each season's DWTS cast is heavily anticipated and rumored for months before the actual announcement. We heard that Dan Marino may be a contestant; a claim that was soon denied. 82-year-old Cloris Leachman was another name floated, as was Magnum, P.I. himself, Tom Selleck. Kim Kardashian and Kathy Griffin were also said to have been approached.

As with most rumors, some of these turned out to be false, but others had some truth to them. Follow me after the jump for the official (and completely insane) cast of Dancing With the Stars' seventh season, along with some twists the producers have cooked up for this go-around.

Yes, it's that time of the television season once again. The fine folks over at ABC are back with another round of Dancing With The Stars. The competition kicks off for real on Monday, but Erin and I thought it would be fun to see what everyone thinks about this latest group of contestants before they all hit the dance floor. Who looks to be the favorite? And who looks to be in trouble before the show even begins. After the jump, I'll take a look at the ladies competing in season six.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 4

by Brett Love, posted Apr 10th 2007 3:00AM
laila and maksim(S04E06) Tom kicked off week four by proclaiming, "It's time to go big, or go home." I would disagree with that. We are still early enough in the competition that people can continue to skate by on popularity. When they get down to four couples, then it will be time to go big.

Len followed that up by going to the stats. According to his numbers, this group has been slacking on the practice. They have only been practicing 13 hours a week. The teams from the last season averaged 19 hours. He said that it shows in their performance, but I don't notice a stark difference between the two seasons. I think we have a similar division of couples again this year. He followed that up with a threat of lower scores for anyone he thinks isn't putting in the work. I wasn't buying that, but in retrospect, this was some of the tougher judging they have ever done. That said, on with the show.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 2

by Brett Love, posted Mar 27th 2007 2:30AM
Apollo Ohno, Julianne Hough(S04E02) Two weeks in and I have to say that this is a pretty good group of contestants. The new format with two weeks of performances before the first elimination was a good idea. Sometimes a contestant just doesn't handle a particular dance well, so it's nice to see them get a second shot. Lots of contestants, so a lot to cover. Let's get to it.

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough (Quick Step) - At its base, the show is about the "Stars." The partners certainly factor in though, and I continue to be impressed with Julianne. She might be just 18 years old, but she carries herself as well as any of the other pros. It doesn't hurt that she is absolutely adorable either. Apollo has officially impressed me now. I didn't have high expectations for him coming in, but he really shows the potential to be a contender. Len said Apollo is going to stay for weeks and weeks. Bruno called it cool, fresh, young, and exciting. Carrie Ann was impressed with the footwork and sync. High praise all around, and deservedly so. The scores, (8, 9, 9) I like that score. A great start to the night.
