DWTS Disney Live Scores



It's Disney week - the couples dance to a Disney song and dress vaguely like disney characters.

And Donny Osmond is a guest judge.

Charlie and Sharna are safe, as are Drew and Cheryl.

Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke - Aladin Quickstep - 7/7/7/7=28

Charlie White and Sharna Burgess - Mary Poppins Jazz - 9/10/9/9=37

Some more "results" - Amy and Derek are safe, as are Danica and Val. NeNe and Tony are in jeopardy, as are Cody and Witney.

Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy - Beauty and the Beast Quickstep - 10/9/10/10=39

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough - Cinderella Waltz - 9/9/10/9=37

Cody Simpson and Cody Simpson - Lion King Samba - 9/8/8/9=34

NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani - 101 Dalmatians Foxtrot - 9/9/9/9=36

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd - Frozen Contemporary- 10/10/10/10 = 40

Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy - Jungle Book Samba - 9/9/9/9=36

Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas - Little Mermaid Samba - 8/9/9/9=35

So the three couples in jeopardy are Candace/Tony, NeNe/Tony and Cody/Witney.  This is a combination of the last two weeks.

NeNe and Tony are safe.

The couple eliminated this week are Cody Simpson and Witney Carson.  I guess he didn't have enough fans vote for him!

Live Scores From The Switch Up!

EThis week's meaningless gimmick is the switch up - for one week only everybody gets a new partner.  Not sure what the point is but it's that sort of season!

Having said that I'm actually enjoying this season more than normal!

Oh, and Julianne Hough is the guest judge!

Oh, and no one's going home!  Last weeks judges' and viewers' votes are combined with this week's to decide who goes home next week.

Too complicated!

Here are the scores:

Candace Cameron Bure and Tony Dovolani - Quickstep - 7/7/7/7=28

James Maslow and Cheryl Burke - Tango - 9/8/9/9=35

Drew Carey and Witney Carson - Cha Cha Cha - 8/8/9/8=33

Danica McKellar and Maksim Chmerkovskiy - Jive - 8/8/8/8=32

Peta Murgatroyd and Charlie White - Rumba - 7/8/9/9=33

Amy Purdy and Mark Ballas - Salsa - 9/8/8/9=34

Cody Simpson and Sharna Burgess - Foxtrot - 8/7/8/8=31

Nene Leakes and Derek Hough - Jazz - 8/8/8/8=32

Meryl Davis and Val Chmerkovskiy - Argentine Tango - 10/9/10/10=39

Here are the totals from both weeks:

Meryl - 78
James - 71
Amy - 70
Charlie - 69
Danica - 68
Cody - 67
Drew - 63
NeNe - 63
Candace - 60

Week 3 Live Judges Scores



We have the "best year of your life" episode (I think i'm the only person in the country that hates it!) and Robin Roberts as a guest judge (I like her).

Breaking: Billy Dee can't dance tonight!

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd - Jive - 9/9/9/9=36

Here's Billy Dee - his doctors won't let him dance anymore (bad back).  Oh well, maybe Sean Avery didn't need to go home?

Nene and Tony Dovolani - Rumba - 8/7/8/8 - 31

Cody Simpson and Witney Carson - Jazz - 9/8/9/9 - 35

Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy - Contemporary - 9/9/9/9 - 36

Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke - Waltz - 7/7/8/8 - 30

Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy - Foxtrot - 10/9/10/10 - 39

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough - Contemporary - 9/9/9/9 - 36

Charlie White and Sharna Burgess - Jive - 9/9/9/9 - 36

Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas - Jive - 8/8/8/8 - 32

So, assuming someone gets voted off next week, NeNe and Drew are most at risk.

Also, it's the switch up - next week (only) every celebrity will change partners!

Well this was a manic episode.  Two eliminations and eleven competitive dances. 

Til next week!

Season 18 Opening Night Live Scores


It's season 18 of a much reduced Dancing with the Stars.  Will the changes work?  I still don't like the scoring system (it's now the judges scores and viewers votes for the same week are added together and the lowest couple is released the week after) but we'll see how the rest goes!

Here are the judges scores:

NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani - Cha Cha Cha - 7/7/7=21
James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd - Foxtrot - 7/7/7=21
Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy - Foxtrot - 8/8/8=24
Sean Avery and Karina Smirnoff - Contemporary - 7/6/7=20
Billy Dee Williams and Emma Slater - Cha Cha Cha - 5/5/5=15
Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy - Cha Cha Cha - 8/8/8=24
Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas - Contemporary - 9/8/8=25
Cody Simpson and Witney Carson - Cha Cha Cha - 7/7/8=22
Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke - Foxtrot - 7/7/7=21
Amy Purdy and Derek Hough - Cha Cha Cha - 8/8/8=24
Diana Nyad and Henry Byalikov - Foxtrot - 6/6/6=18
Charlie White and Sharna Burgess - Contemporary - 9/9/9=27

The first couple to leave will be announced next Monday.

Season 18 Line Up

The stars in season 18 of DWTS are at once more well know but lesser celebrities than previous seasons.

I actually think one of the great things about the show is getting to know stars in areas outside of what you nornally like.  I'm thinking of people like Ty Murray, Mark Cuban, Albert Reed, Brooke Burke etc.  I'm not saying I liked them, I just enjoyed getting to know them.

This season I know everyone apart from the skateboarder and the Big Time Rusher.  The rest are, shall we say, past their prime, or just going with the flow.

Having said all that you never know - it might be the best season ever!

Here are the couples:

Sean Avery - ex-hockey player - and Karina Smirnoff
Actress Candice Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas
Price Is Right host Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke
Skater Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Reality star NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani
BTRer James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd
Actress Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy
Swimmer Diana Nyad and Henry Byalikov
Snowboarder Amy Purdy and Derek Hough
Skater Charlie White and Sharna Burgess
Star Wars Star Billy Dee Williams and Emma Slater
Pop star Cody Simpson and Witney Carson

Is Sean Avery joining 'Dancing With the Stars'?

I'm not a hockey fan and I've never heard of the guy (I'm sure he's very nice) but it's good to get different sports on the show.

New York Post: Sean Avery is joining the cast of "Dancing With the Stars," sources exclusively tell Page Six. The former Rangers star has been spotted working out in preparation for the show...:http://pge.sx/1bNcQuo
