'Dancing With The Stars' November 10 Recap

November 11th, 2008 10:25am EST
Dancing With The Stars
Next week is the Dancing With The Stars semi-final, meaning each celebrity needed to step up their game this week. They were challenged to not only two dances, but also a 15 second solo to show of their dancing abilities without the help of their professional partner.

Cody Linley, still paired with partner Edyta Sliwinska due to Julianne Hough surgery, performed both the foxtrot and mambo this week. He was bummed due to having the lowest score and being in the bottom two last week. Some of his friends came to visit and boosted his spirits; they also got a kick out of dancing with Edyta...

'Dancing With The Stars': New Routines and Team Dancing

November 4th, 2008 10:27am EST
Dancing With The Stars
Dancing With The Stars is always up for trying something new. This week it was "Team Dancing" where half the couples still in the competition were put against the other half to boost their scores. But first, each couple had to perform a dance they had not done previously.

Up first, Warren Sapp and Kym Johnson dancing the foxtrot. Kym took Warren to watch a professional foxtrot class and pick up some tips for the male part. Warren didn't impress the judges, however. He received the lowest ballroom score, prior to the additional points from the team dance. Len Goodman, back from his vaca...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Six

October 28th, 2008 9:57am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
It was a night filled with diversity on Dancing With The Stars. Almost everyone performed a different type of dance, Michael Flatly, the Lord of the Dance, took Len's position for the night as a guest judge, and all the stars joined together to coordinate a hip hop routine.

Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke were the first to take the floor, performing a Viennese waltz. Maurice was skeptical on dancing a ballroom-esque number because he had not done so since week one of the competition. He claimed his mind was on overload. He didn't get too bad critiques, but he did wind up with t...

'Dancing With The Stars' Adds Four New Dances

October 21st, 2008 10:12am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
Last night four new dances were added to the Dancing With The Stars competition: West Coast Swing, Salsa, Hustle and the Jitterbug. While these dances aren't officially new to the dancing world, some of the professionals had to resort to the internet for their own knowledge to be able to teach their star. A male and female celebrity each took a shot at the new dances back to back for the audience and the judges' comparisons.

The West Coast Swing was performed by Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer along with Toni Braxton and Alec Mazo. Lance was up first, but most of his critiques were not ...

Recap: 'Dancing With The Stars'

Dancing With The Stars
After Misty May's painful farewell, no one was eliminated last week on Dancing With The Stars. However, the competition wasn't going to take last week's votes and scores lightly. Everything carried over from last week, making people like Rocco DiSpirito work even harder for a chance to dance another day.

This week the stars were assigned to dance either the tango or the samba and were judged accordingly. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was cracking down this week claiming that by week four of the competition, people needed to start taking critiques and the dances seriously.

Up first, Maur...

Recap: 'Dancing With The Stars': Season 7 Week 2

September 30th, 2008 9:52am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
After booting funny-men Jeffrey Ross and Ted McGinley from Dancing With The Stars, the remaining eleven stars only had four days to prepare this week's routine. Stars were asked to dance either the Rumba or the Pasodoble, the two most "theatrical" dances in the competition. Guess that's the consequence to suffer when you have a long, drawn-out three-night premiere event.

First up to dance was singer Toni Braxton and partner Alec Mazo. During practice this week, Alec decided to show Toni how dedicated he was to her by singing an awful rendition of her song, "Un-break My Heart." But the ...

Each of the stars danced either the Cha Cha Cha or the Foxtrot with their professional partners and were judged by ballroom professionals, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Up first, the youngest competitor Dancing With The Stars has ever seen, 18-year-old Cody Linley. The Hannah Montana star got paired with golden girl and two-time champ Julianne Hough. In his pre-dance interview, Linley said he would have...
