'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Crowns Hines Ward MVP Of The Ballroom

May 25th, 2011 8:09am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
Us audience members were officially cut off Tuesday morning. No more voting for "Dancing With The Stars." But the judges still had another set of scores to give on Tuesday’s finale, and we got three hours of show to sit through. Three hours. They had to make up for Monday’s show only being an hour long, I guess.

Luckily the first hour was a repeat, so I don’t have to write five million extra words for a third of the show. Then the opening sequence and voice over for the real show kicked in, and were especially dramatic. That is saying a lot when talking about this show. I a...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Five Sends Petra Packing

PETRA NEMCOVA
American Week performances were hit and miss, so I’m glad we’re putting that behind us, and I’m looking forward to next week’s “guilty pleasures” theme. But of course there is the business of who has to go home to deal with before we can move on. Let’s take a look at where Monday’s judges’ scores left us:

1. Hines and Kym - 27
2. Chris and Cheryl - 26
2. Chelsea and Mark - 26
2. Romeo and Chelsie - 26
3. Kirstie and Maks - 23
4. Ralph and Karina - 22
4. Petra and Dmitry - 22
4. Kendra and Louis - 22

We started out this results show with the fates of the top scorer, Hines, and Kirstie, w...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Five Salutes The Red, White And Blue

April 19th, 2011 10:00am EDT
DWTS American Week
It’s American Week on ‘Dancing With The Stars’, and Monday was a night of odd music choices mixed with dances that didn’t fit them. As a result, there were a lot of awkward performances, and mixed reviews. I think they may have started out with a good idea for a theme, but didn’t carry it out very well. After last week’s classical theme, it was a definite step down. But the show must go on, and ‘Dancing’ has always got to have a gimmick, right?

Ralph Macchio (Actor) and Karina Smirnoff
Dance: Samba
Scores: 8, 7, 7
Len said that he was disappointed in Ralph’s inconsistency. He said it w...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Four Elimination Is 'The Heart Of The Show' Sugar Ray

April 13th, 2011 9:28am EDT
SUGAR RAY LEONARD - ANNA TREBUNSKAYA
Classical Week performances are over and done, but ‘Dancing With The Stars’ still had last night’s results show to milk the orchestra. It wasn’t quite as effective with Jennifer Hudson taking Katherine Jenkins’ spot at center stage, but that wasn’t really what mattered. What mattered is who the heck was going to go home. This was one of those weeks that it seemed like it could have been anyone.

In fact, the first couple declared to be in jeopardy was sort of a shock based on judge scores, but even then I still wondered if it really could have been their time. I’m getting ahead of mys...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Four Gives Us Classics & Another Leader Board Shift

April 12th, 2011 9:20am EDT
DWTS Classical themed week
Tchaikovsky, Rota, Bocelli, Williams... It’s Classical Week on ‘Dancing With The Stars’, and the band has gone and multiplied into a 46 member orchestra. On top of that, we had some amazing guest stars, like violinist David Garrett and singer Katherine Jenkins. I’m not a huge fan of classical music, but I enjoy it enough, and this was one of the best theme nights I can remember in recent seasons.

The stage was really quite amazing to see, and it brought a whole new element to the show. Last season they did Acoustic Week, and that was uneventful in my eyes, but this was a game changer. ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Review: Week Three Elimination... Wendy Williams

April 6th, 2011 9:18am EDT
DANCING WITH THE STARS THE RESULTS SHOW
Monday night we laughed and cried, and oohed and aahed, among other cliche reactions, over the emotional stories our stars told with their dances. We collectively cringed over Kirstie and Maks’ fall, then talked about it all day long. We discussed how the scores have been all over the place this season... and then talked about Kirstie and Maks some more.

Look, you fall down on ‘Dancing’, and you’re going to have to talk about it and hear about it until you have a nervous breakdown. It’s just the way it is.

Here’s a run down of where we stood after Monday’s performances:

1. Hines and K...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Three Performances Get Emotional

April 5th, 2011 9:20am EDT
CHRIS JERICHO CHERYL BURKE
With Mike and Lacey gone, we now have ten stars standing, some good, some bad, some ridiculous. Some of them are all of those things at the same time, and this week they get to tell us their personal stories. Each star picked a song that they had an emotional connection to, and had to express it in their dance.

It wasn’t as silly as I thought it was going to be.

The outcomes were a little surprising, most especially because they gave us a brand new pecking order at the end of the night. Again. This season is shaping up to be unpredictable. Don’t these people realize that they’re toyi...
