Dancing with the Stars Season 25 Disney Week!

Dancing with the Stars Season 25 Disney Week!

#dwts

#dwts25

It’s DISNEY week!!!  Loved the opening # it was so cute!

 

Victoria Arlen & Val Chmerkovskiy

#teamViVa

Jazz-“Steamboat Willie” from “Steamboat Willie”

Victoria’s personality totally matches Disney!  First of all how cute were their costumes.  I love seeing Val during week’s like this!  I thought the dance was so creative and fun.  Victoria is making big strides in all she is able to do on the show.  The performance in my opinion was light, fun, flawless and just the perfect way to kick off Disney Week!

 

Vanessa Lachey & Maks Chmerkovskiy

#teamBabiesandBallroom

Waltz-“Un Jour Mon Price Viendra” from “Snow White”

Their package was too funny.   I thought their dance was full of elegance and grace tonight.  Vanessa is a stunning dancer and continues to grow each week.  It was beautifully choreographed by Maks.   It was truly beautiful tonight and they should be proud of their performance.

 

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas

#teamStark

Foxtrot-“When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio”

I thought they had a beautiful Foxtrot!  Loved Mickey playing the piano!  Nice touch!  There was a lot of great content in the in the dance and it was beautifully performed.   I wasn’t surprised at all that Len loved it.

 

Nick Lachey & Peta Murgatroyd

#teamMomandPops

Quickstep-“The Bare Necessities” from “The Jungle Book”

Their package was absolutely precious and hilarious.  I really loved their dance tonight.  I really have not understood why Nick’s scores have been what they are this season.  I think he is exactly what this show should be about, learning how to dance, growing week after week.  He and Peta have always had a fun partnership and I really thought they absolutely nailed it tonight.  What a great job!  I thought it was a lot of fun and you could tell they were having a great time!  Again he was underscored by Carrie Ann and Bruno.  I just don’t get it night after night he’s underscored.

 

Drew Scott & Emma Slater

#teamHotProperty

Viennese Waltz-“Rainbow Connection” from “The Muppet Movie”

Drew is another one that has made great strides this season.  He is so much more in control and graceful.  I really enjoyed their dance, he’s become a true leading man.  It was light, creative and beautifully fit the theme.  That was really very good!  Great job!

 

Sasha Pieterse & Gleb Savchenko

#teamAteam

Rumba-“Kiss the Girl” from “The Little Mermaid”

I am loving these packages this week.  That is an amazing weight loss Sasha, you go girl!  I really enjoyed their dance.  It was fun, in character, had a lot of great Rumba content and was as sexy as you can be on Disney night.   Gleb did a beautiful job of creating the dance.  They are a great partnership and it’s obvious how much they truly are friends.  I thought they deserved higher scores again this week.

 

Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke

#teamGetchaPopcorn

Quickstep-“I Just Can’t Wait to be King” from “The Lion King”

Their dance was fun, creative and executed well.  They really incorporated the troupe and fellow dancers.   Terrell is growing each week.  Their scores to me were over-scored.

 

Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson

#teamFranneypack

Argentine Tango-“Angelica” from “Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides”

I think Frankie pulled off sexy really well.  I thought their dance had intensity, and lot of fun content and I really loved it!  Witney did another great job in putting together a wonderful performance.  Frankie is really continues to be one to watch! They totally deserved the 2 10’s that was great!

 

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold

#teamFishUponAStar

Foxtrot-“You’re Welcome” from “Moana”

Another fantastic and flawless performance by Jordan and Lindsay.  It was a lot of fun to watch and Lindsay is truly doing a phenomenal job creating these masterpiece dances this season.  Jordan is a natural and his personality just shines in his dances.

 

Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev

#teamSmackDown

Jazz-“Remember Me” from Disney-Pixar’s upcoming movie “Coco”

Their package had me laughing too.  Artem really did a fabulous job of putting together this performance.  It was light, fun, hit all the cultural marks and it was filled with a ton of fun high energy.  I loved every moment of their dance!  Bravo!!!  Finally good scores for this team!  Very well deserved!

Fourth to go home this season:   Gleb & Sasha

This is another ridiculous bottom 2 this season. What is going on seriously!  As a viewer since Season 1 this is the most messed up and wrong elimination order I have ever seen on the show.  I really just don’t get it.

As I expected this season is packed with talent and great personalities.  Voting will be even more important than usual to keep your favorites coming back week after week!

The tour dates and cast was announced!!!  Excited for a good long tour this winter!!!  For more info and more VIP & regular tickets go to:  http://dwtstour.com/

Dancing with the Stars S25 Most Memorable Year!

Dancing with the Stars Season 25 Most Memorable Year!

#dwts

#dwts25

This is hands down my favorite week each season…Most Memorable Year.  The emotion behind the meaningful dances is just beauty in motion.  I cannot get enough!

Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson

#teamFranneypack

Quickstep

I absolutely loved what Frankie said in this package although it’s sad the reason why.  He has had many injuries and has suffered many TIA’s which are mini strokes and his memory has been affected over the years from all of it.  The TIA’s are absolutely not minor things.  My Dad had one several years ago and it was a really scary week not knowing if he would regain full function.  Being so young and dealing with them must be scary.   It’s a beautiful way to live being in the present.  I really adore Frankie and in so many ways he is one of my favorite reasons to watch this show.  He has a love for the dance.  I really liked their performance.  I thought it was solid, it was fun, beautiful and had a lot fun content included.

 

Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke

#teamGetchaPopcorn

Viennese Waltz

Terrell’s year was the year his Grandmother passed.  She was a huge part of his life stepping in as a main care giver in many ways in his life.  She was such a key part of his life and his inspiration.  He credits her for being the man that he is today.  Their dance was beautiful and I think one of the best they have done to date.  His height in this dance really was an asset because it allowed him to display beautiful lines.  It was really, really beautiful and the emotion was raw.

 

Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev

#teamSmackDown

Contemporary

Nikki’s year was the year she made a comeback to the ring.  She got an MRI and found out her neck was about to break in half.  She is one heck of a fighter and I agree with her sister’s reference that she is fearless.  She’s fierce in every way.  Artem has such an amazing talent to choreograph dances but, he truly excels at contemporary and pulling the emotion out of his partner.  Tonight it was a masterpiece performance.   Their dance was absolutely stunning in every word.  It was beautiful, artsy, powerful and a beautiful display of her story, her strength and I loved it!

 

Nick Lachey & Peta Murgatroyd

#teamMomandPops

Contemporary

Nick’s most memorable year was the year he married Vanessa.  Such a beautiful love story, he has his family he always dreamed of.  Peta did an absolutely stunning job at putting together this dance tonight.  It truly allowed Nick to dance with his heart and it was evident in every single movement.  It was a beautiful masterpiece tonight and it was absolutely breathtaking.  I love watching dances where you can not only see the beauty but, feel the raw emotion and you absolutely could feel it tonight.   Len and Bruno’s scores were just wrong in my opinion.  They are consistently underscored this season in my opinion.

 

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas

#teamStark

Viennese Waltz

Lindsey’s most memorable year was when her Dad got cancer and lost his life.  He seemed like he was such a light and fun character.  I loved what she said that instead of being angry at what she was losing she was grateful for what she had.   Their dance was light and beautiful and full of emotion.  There was so much creativity, imagination and heart in the performance.  Their scores were puzzling to me though, if another couple was lacking content of the dance they would not have been scored that high.

 

Derek Fisher & Sharna Burgess

#teamHoopsandHeels

Jazz

Derek’s dance was for his daughter who had a rare eye cancer.  They decided to try to save her eye through a new procedure.  He walked away from his contract because he had to be there for his daughter.  The surgery worked and really changed Derek.   Their dance was really light, bright and fun and a sweet way to celebrate that’s daughter’s surgery worked and she is thriving in life.  It had a lot of great energy and the moment after with his daughter was just so sweet.  I really liked it and it allowed you to see into Derek’s personality and see how much he loves his daughter.

 

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold

#teamFishUponAStar

Contemporary

Jordan’s most memorable year was the year he was officially adopted by his grandparents.  It was such a beautiful story of love and listening to them describe it was just a great example of unconditional love.   I absolutely loved their performance.  It was just masterfully designed by Lindsay and beautifully portrayed by Jordan.  Oh my gosh that ending with his parents was just pure emotion in every meaning of the word.  The dance really was perfection and really defined why I love this week on the show.  Every movement had pure heart behind it.   They got the first 10’s of the season from Carrie Ann & Bruno!

 

Sasha Pieterse & Gleb Savchenko

#teamAteam

Foxtrot

Sasha’s year was the final year of Pretty Little Liars, struggling with her health but she also was able to discover love and getting engaged.  What a beautiful love story they have.  I love the story of one door closing and another one opening.  So often in life many will stare at the closed chapter/door but, it’s ok to turn your head to see what the new chapter will bring.  I really just adore Sasha, she’s just real and I think she is inspiring far more women than she may realize being on the show.  Their performance was so light, fun and a beautiful way to tell her story.  They really have developed a great friendship too which is so fun to watch.  It was filled with content, great happy energy and they should be very proud of this performance!

 

Vanessa Lachey & Maks Chmerkovskiy

#teamBabiesandBallroom

Rumba

Vanessa’s year was the story of the recent birth of her son.   I never knew Vanessa’s story that her mom left when she was young.  She and Nick really have a similar background which really shows why they both value family as much as they do.  With her last pregnancy she was on bedrest and went into Labor very early.   Thankfully their baby was able to survive and made their family complete.  Vanessa really is extremely graceful and you could feel the emotion in every movement of their dance tonight.  Their dance was really exquisitely performed and seeing the emotion on both she and Nick’s face was just heartbreaking.  It was filled with content

 

Drew Scott & Emma Slater

#teamHotProperty

Jive

Drew’s year was the year that changed his life and he went all in to chase his dreams of being an actor.  His spirit was broken because he wasn’t making it as an actor.  I loved his story on when he realized maybe I can combine my dreams of real estate and acting and that’s how Property Brothers was created.  That’s such a key to life rather than give up you figure it out and find a way to make it work! Drew has improved so much and I wondered how the Jive would look with his height and I thought he did fantastic.  What a fun moment to have Jonathan comes out and join them!   Now that is a trio dance!  So awesome!  I really loved their performance tonight.

 

Victoria Arlen & Val Chmerkovskiy

#teamViVa

Foxtrot

It still amazes me every week to know what Victoria has gone through and to see all she has done since.  It’s nothing short of a miracle but, what I love about her even more is her spirit.  She never allowed it to break her and her positivity just exudes every week.  I cannot imagine how hard for her parents this was as well to watch all that Victoria has gone through.  I love what she said at the end too that she doesn’t like to sit now that she can stand.    I really loved their Foxtrot.  Val was able to create a dance that just perfectly displayed her triumph and all she accomplished.  It’s just simply incredible!  Their dance was just stunning in every moment, every step was just perfection in motion.  Watching Victoria should make everyone believe you can achieve anything in life.

Third to go home this season:   Sharna & Derek Fisher

I seriously do not get it this season.  The last 2 eliminations were just flat out wrong in my humble opinion.  I am blown away yet again absolutely wrong bottom 2 again.  Plus the scoring this season has had me really scratching my head.  Some are consistently being over scored and others consistently underscored even with great performances and/improvement.   As a viewer I am having a real issue with that this season.

As I expected this season is packed with talent and great personalities.  Voting will be even more important than usual to keep your favorites coming back week after week!

The tour dates and cast was announced!!!  Excited for a good long tour this winter!!!  For more info and more VIP & regular tickets go to:  http://dwtstour.com/

Dancing with the Stars Season 25 Premiere!

Dancing with the Stars Season 25 Premiere!

#dwts

#dwts25

I could not be more excited for this season!  It’s a really great cast and I think it’s going to be a competitive season!  Crazy it’s up to 25 seasons.  I have watched since Season 1 and seen the changes over the years and this one should be special!

What an opening night!  That was absolutely amazing!  Bravo Mandy Moore!

We will miss Julianne as a judge this season but, nice to see Len, Bruno and Carrie Ann back.  I have to say in a way I am glad the judges are scoring a bit low tonight.  This gives all the partnerships room to grow and improve.

 

Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke

#teamGetchaPopcorn

Cha Cha

Wow I didn’t realize this was Cheryl’s 20th season!  I thought they were good, the height difference made it a bit interesting to watch and Terrell seemed maybe a bit nervous but it is the opening night.  It was fun and energetic.  I think with his personality and Cheryl’s coaching you will see him improve and loosen up as the season goes on.

 

 

 

Debbie Gibson & Alan Bersten

#teamSonBerst

Foxtrot

I am so excited for Alan to finally be a Pro!  I think Debbie was the perfect person to match him with this season!  I grew up listening to Debbie’s music and she has a fun personality!  On a personal note I can understand part of Debbie’s struggle with Lyme disease.  I went for an annual skin check and they found the bull’s eye on my arm it was in a spot I could see and for 3 months they loaded me up with antibiotics but, the symptoms you go through are absolutely awful and really you can’t understand until you have gone through it.  They performed a beautiful Foxtrot!  It was light, beautiful, and elegant and I really think this will be a partnership to watch this season.

 

Sasha Pieterse & Gleb Savchenko

#teamAteam

Cha Cha

I think this will also be a fun partnership.  They seemed to have already formed a nice friendship.  I thought they did well for the first week.  Cha Cha is not an easy first dance to learn and I thought they did good.  I thought it was fun, and it showed off Sasha’s fun, fierce and fabulous personality.  I think you will see this partnership continue to improve and grow as the weeks go on.

 

 

Drew Scott & Emma Slater

#teamHotProperty

Foxtrot

You could not find a better match in personalities than these two!  No pressure Drew, Emma won last season but, I think he is totally up for the challenge!  Drew definitely came out full of energy and he is so animated which is fun to watch.  It was fun, light and very energetic!  I think first night energy might have got the best of him just a bit but, I think they will do good this season and continue to improve.  BTW I loved Emma’s dress!

 

Barbara Corcoran & Keo Motsepe  #teamSharkeo

Salsa

Keo and Barbara are just too funny together.  This combo is going to be fun!  Barbara definitely had the basic technique/steps of the Salsa down.  It was a ton of fun to watch, they have a lot of fun energy and I think she exceeded expectations tonight.

 

 

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold

#teamFishUponAStar

Tango

Lindsay definitely has a partner she could go all the way to the end with this season!  That was a killer first week performance and they should be excited with that performance.  Lindsay is so creative and I think this will be another team to watch this season!  They should be thrilled with their performance tonight!

 

 

 

Nick Lachey & Peta Murgatroyd

#teamMomandPops

Cha Cha

I really like Nick and Peta partnered up.  I thought they were really good tonight.  They absolutely have potential to go far in this competition.  Nick definitely has some moves!  He is right 98 degrees wasn’t known for their dancing but, he was really good tonight.   A lot of fun energy, hip action and good technique for the first week.  Peta is such a good teacher and I think couple that was his determination and they will go far!

 

 

Vanessa Lachey & Maks Chmerkovskiy

#teamBabiesandBallroom

Cha Cha

Maks and Vanessa will be a great match up personality wise.   Vanessa was really good.  She absolutely learned the technique of the dance and they are going to be a great partnership.  They brought the sizzle, the energy, fun and I was impressed!  I liked to hear what Maks said too about working hard.  Maks is another fabulous teacher and working hard will take you far!

 

Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson

#teamFranneypack

Foxtrot

First up can we talk about Witney’s dress, gorgeous!   They are such a cute partnership.  I thought they did really good.  Frankie was light on his feet, they seem to be perfectly matched for each other and they should be very proud of their performance tonight.  It was beautiful and endearing.  I love it when you can feel the emotion in the dance.

 

 

 

Nikki Bella & Artem Chiigvintsev

#teamSmackDown

Tango

First of all I love how excited Artem is this season!  This is such a great match up!  They were crazy good tonight!  Nikki is very powerful and a strong presence!  Nikki does what I do when I dance too it’s hard to look up when you are learning.  Artem is such a great teacher too so I think they will do great this season!  Artem might need some massages this season with all the body slamming.

 

Derek Fisher & Sharna Burgess

#teamHoopsandHeels

Salsa

Derek Fisher has the moves!  I think he and Sharna will be fantastic this season!  Their dance was fun, filled with good content and they absolutely made a huge impression tonight.   He has a real presence on the dance floor and I think as he continues to learn from Sharna they will be a team to watch.

 

 

 

Victoria Arlen & Val Chmerkovskiy

#teamViVa

Cha Cha

Victoria’s story is nothing short of amazing and inspirational.  I am so happy she is matched with Val.   She has an amazing spirit that just shines right through.    They blew the roof off the studio tonight!  Victoria should be so proud of herself that was amazing!  Crazy high energy, great technique and her personality literally just lit up the room.  Bravo!

 

 

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas

#teamStark

Cha Cha

I thought Lindsey was good and with two very creative personalities I am sure they will be bringing us some great performances.  I am a little unclear if Lindsey has dance experience or not so someone please correct me on that.  I know she was in a video with Derek Hough in the past.  They absolutely had a great performance tonight.

As I expected this season is packed with talent and great personalities.  Voting will be even more important than usual to keep your favorites coming back week after week!

VIP Experience Blog

DWTS VIP Hot Summer Nights Tour Summer 2017

DWTS VIP Hot Summer Nights Tour Summer 2017

#dwtstour

I’ve had the pleasure of being a VIP for the last five Dancing with the Stars tours. From the first tour I participated in the VIP to this year’s tour I must say: It’s like night and day!  They have improved them tremendously!  So let’s talk about the details of the VIP!

Pre-Show: For my 1st and 2nd shows in Raleigh/Durham…I did two different packages there.  We received our pre-show email about 3-5 days ahead from VIP Nation.  For our show we had to arrive between 2:15-2:45 and show started at 5:00 (Note this varies city to city so ALWAYS review your itinerary).  There is no reason to line up an hour early or anything.  They have a very organized process to get everyone in.  The email also contains where the VIP check in table is, the link to where to find your photos and password.

Front Row VIP Package Gifts

Entering VIP:   Right on time the doors were opened, they did the usual security checks at the door and then you went to the sign in table.  It took maybe 5 minutes to get checked in.   We also picked up our 1 drink ticket, the tote bag for the front row package included a bag, sunglasses, water bottle, earbuds & signed tour program.  For the 2nd row package it include the same minus the signed tour program.  When you check in you are given a laminate with a letter on the back and that is the order they call you for your pictures so there is not one giant line and everyone can enjoy the party until it’s their turn.  I will also say I missed our VIP host from the last two tours Anthony Jones.  No offense to Brittany in any way.

Now on to the good stuff!  After check in we were directed upstairs.  We didn’t wait very long at all when they started telling Group A to line up.  A few minutes later we saw Alan and Britt coming our way, it was their turn to do the Meet & Mingle!  It appears that it’s all rotating like last tour (2 in the Meet & Mingle and 4 in the photos with Emma & Rashad/Heather being consistent).   To give you an idea for our cast photo we had Emma, Lindsay, Rashad & Gleb.  I will update this after each show to give you all an idea:

http://lightscmemories.com/entertainment-blog/dwts-hot-summer-…r-vip-photo-list/

The photos were wonderful as always.  In all past tours I have attended they have always taken 2 pictures, this time they only did 1.  The staff is also very kind, nobody is yelling at you it’s a pleasant experience.  You do have to leave your purse, bags and anything else on you at the table and you cannot ask for autographs etc. at the cast photo portion.   This year too it was one professional photo taken by VIP Nation host, no selfie options in the main photo.  You could however do selfies with the dancers in the Meet & Mingle.  I did not honestly see the green screen option anywhere at either VIP party in Durham so I cannot comment on that.  After the photos were done and the dancers all left to get ready for the show you could go to the merchandise stand and do some crowd free shopping which was also nice.

Rows 2-5 VIP Package Gift

Please note on the pics:  the itinerary says up within to 2 weeks but the staff has been doing an awesome job and usually has them up in about 24 hours.

Show time!  Here is a full article I did on the show itself.  http://lightscmemories.com/entertainment-blog/dwts-hot-summer-nights-tour-2017/

Suggestions for Tour Management:  This is something I have been thinking about.  For the Maks & Val Tour and the Derek & Julianne tours there was another top level tier package when you got pictures in the VIP and then got extra time with them backstage.  I know the VIP photos are with “select” dancers (4 the last 2 tours) at each city but, many fans have voiced their disappointment when their “favorite” isn’t in their photo since it’s a random rotation.  I have heard many voice their displeasure at paying several hundred dollars but not getting a pic with their favorite.  What if you added another ticket tier or made it with the front row packages that you get your pic with the rest of the VIP’s and then you are either taken down just before the show or just after and get a photo with the full tour cast?  If you sold a very limited # of them it wouldn’t take that much extra time.  That way you those that truly want to meet them all would have the chance and it would then add another tier package for you.  I know I would sign up for that for sure!

If possible rotate the dancers if you are doing two shows in one city.  Some of us like to go to both shows and it would be great to get pics with two sets of dancers since you are paying VIP at both.

Bravo & Thank you:  VIP Nation you always put together fantastic unique experiences and it doesn’t go unnoticed! Thank you so much to the tour staff:  Mandy Moore, Director Andrew Winghart, Associate Director and Ashley Edens-Shaffer, Creative Consultant and our dance captains:  Lindsay and Artem truly put together an amazing show that I think every fan should be sure they have a ticket for! The creative genius is obvious at every moment in the show.  The vision and layout for this tour is truly worth 10 Stars!  The crew and all the other behind the scenes individuals also deserve a shout out!  The Dancers (Sharna, Gleb, Artem, Lindsay, Sasha, Keo, Emma, Hayley, Alan and Britt all truly leave it on the floor each night.  It’s emotional, it’s passionate, it’s raw, it’s FUN, it’s full of energy and I am so excited I will get to see this tour multiple times and have a new take away each night!

If you don’t have a ticket…Buy one today and if you are able to do VIP it’s worth the investment for this experience they have many different levels and price points too!  Here’s the link for tickets/VIP package! https://vipnation.com/tours/dancing-with-the-stars-live/hot-summer-nights/e54ccb4a62ac4b99ca9331d468a18443VwH3ZPV%3D

DWTS Hot Summer Nights Tour 2017

Dancing With the Stars

Hot Summer Nights Tour Summer 2017

#DWTSTour

This was my 5th Dancing with the Stars tour! The stage set up with fantastic, great music/dance selection and the cast was filled with not only great talent but, the kindest people.  Truly loved the Hot Summer Nights Tour!

 

I am attending 4 shows on this tour and have one more to go in Minnesota and did VIP for three of the four. Here are a few links to past articles on the tours.  First one is guest blog by a contest winner:  http://lightscmemories.com/contestsgiveaways/dwts-vip-tour-winner-review-_dwts-hough/  Next: http://lightscmemories.com/vip/guest-blog-sandra-chen-1st-dwts-tour-vip-experience/ Here are a few on past tours:  http://lightscmemories.com/entertainment-blog/dwts-came-dance-2016-17/ & http://lightscmemories.com/vip/dwts-vip-came-dance-tour-2016-17/ & http://lightscmemories.com/entertainment-blog/dancing-stars-dance-night-tour/and I have also kept track of the cast photos and mingles as I know many of my followers like to guess who will be in their VIP:  http://lightscmemories.com/entertainment-blog/dwts-hot-summer-nights-tour-vip-photo-list/

The cast included: Rashad Jennings, Heather Morris (filled in for most of July while Rashad was out for football) Sharna Burgess, Lindsay Arnold, Artem Chigvintsev, Gleb Savchenko, Keo Motsepe, Emma Slater, Alan Bersten, Sasha Farber, Hayley Erbert and Britt Stewart!

This year’s tour was very light & fun with a lot of summertime elements mixed in.  It was so great to see Emma & Rashad dance together live again.  I was so excited for them that they won this season.  I haven’t seen Heather perform yet that will be at the next show.  It was also so nice to have Sasha back on tour this time and Britt was another fantastic addition to the cast.  I know a lot of people were unsure what to expect when Val took the summer off.  Even though he and Jenna were incredibly missed on the stage I think many of the other dancers really shined bright this tour.  We saw a few of our favorite dances from the season, they had an entire movie section which was just fantastic.  I know I keep saying it when I post pictures but, that dance that Sharna & Gleb do to 50 Shades was just smoking hot.  I also really enjoyed Artem & Hayley’s beautiful and passionate contemporary dance and Gleb & Hayley’s dance to “Don’t Want to Miss a Thing”.  Watching Sasha and Emma dance quite a few pieces together including the Viennese Waltz dedicated to their engagement was just beautiful. Lindsay has a fun storytelling portion of the show as well that is hilarious in addition to performing many amazing numbers.  I also really enjoyed the Prince/Princess piece.  Keo is absolutely hilarious with his drop the mic moment and also has many beautiful and high energy performances.  Alan also truly stands out this tour with his fun dance with the ladies, his Samba with Lindsay and many other fantastic performances.  Britt is a real sweetheart and also incredibly talented.  She shines bright on the stage every night!    All of the dancers just radiate joy on that stage.  The entire show was absolutely beautiful and high energy and it allowed all the dancers to be equally in the spotlight.

I also loved all the other special elements.  If you haven’t seen the show you can skip a few of the videos so it doesn’t get spoiled:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0B1x8CXgW8

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7Ws1LShqNg

Every style of dance was perfectly portrayed, you could feel the raw emotion and energy and each performance flew by because it was just that good.  This year’s tour was similar to the last one very fast paced which I loved it seemed to be shorter numbers but, with a lot more content packed in which I absolutely loved.

The dancers gave it their all every single night of the performances and I cannot say enough what a privilege it was to meet them at the meet and greets, but to sit in the audience and watch their talent and brilliance come to life.

DWTS Season Season 24! Week 3-Vegas Week

DWTS Season Season 24! Week 3-Vegas Week

#dwts

I missed blogging last week due to having pneumonia.  I am thankfully finally feeling better and excited to blog about this week’s episode.  I did want to say it was so sad to see Witney and Chris go last week.  They were a fun match up and it’s unfortunate we didn’t learn how extensive Chris’s injury was.   Let’s see what Vegas week brings!

Super fun opening number!

 

Nick Viall & Peta Murgatroyd #teamBabyGotBach

Dance:  Tango

Song:  “Poker Face” by Lady Gaga

This partnership is really growing on me.  It’s been so great having Peta back and Nick is showing a more vulnerable side to himself.  I think he did improve week over week.  He definitely appears more comfortable and confident than the first week.  It absolutely takes time when you learn to dance.  Nick and Peta are working hard and it shows.

 

Mr T & Kym Herjavec #teamDancinFools

Dance:  Foxtrot

Song:  “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head” by Robbie Williams

This was a really different character for Mr T it was fun to see him in a more classic character.  I thought they did a good job.  I liked this softer side of him.  He seems like he is a really great guy and I have done some reading on him and he truly does give back a lot.   Keep up the great work!

 

Bonner Bolton & Sharna Burgess #teamDenimNDiamonds

Dance:  Charleston

Song:  “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” by Fergie and GoonRock and Q-Tip

 

I thought they did a really great job this week.  Sharna is brilliant about being able to create around injuries and they are such an amazing team.   This is a tough dance.  You can tell how much Bonner cares about the competition and that he really does want to improve each week.   They are fun partnership and one that I still think will go far in this competition.  I thought the scores were a bit low.

 

It was nice to get a preview to the Derek & Julianne Tour as well!!!   For tickets and tour info please go to:  https://moveliveontour.com/

 

Heather Morris & Maksim Chmerkovskiy #teamMaksimumHeat

Dance:  Tango

Song:  “Toxic” by Brittany Spears

 

Maks is still out injured and I am absolutely sending him out well wishes for a speedy recovery.  It was nice to see him at the studio cheering Heather on tonight.  Alan is filling in and I am glad he is getting a chance to shine as a Pro again.  I thought they had a great tango!  It was a lot of fun to watch, defiantly showed how much Heather has grown as a ballroom dancer.

 

Charo & Keo Motsepe #teamCuchiCuchi

Dance:  Foxtrot

Song:  “Chapel of Love” by The Dixie Cups

 

Charo has a huge, full of energy personality but, I really do like the friendship that seems to have developed with Keo.   Keo is such a nice guy and I am glad he was a Pro again this season.  I loved their dance tonight.  It was elegant, beautiful, sweet and a lot of fun to watch.  Bravo Keo on the wonderful choreography.

 

Simone Biles & Sasha Farber #teamGoldenGiggles

Dance:  Quickstep

Song:  “Viva Las Vegas” by Elvis Presley

 

Holy smokes that was one fast quickstep!  Hats off to both Simone and Sasha for having the energy and stamina for that dance!  Another fantastic job.  Fun, energetic, lots of great technique and they really are a dynamo team.  I am looking forward to seeing what they come up with for next week and showing a more emotional side to Simone.

 

Nancy Kerrigan & Artem Chigvintsev #teamBladesOfGlory

Dance:  Samba

Song:  “Shake Your Bon-Bon” by Ricky Martin

 

OMG Artem’s reaction to meeting Ricky Martin was awesome!  Now he knows how we feel when we meet him!  I absolutely LOVED their dance.  In my opinion they have been under-rated to date everyone should sit up and take notice tonight because they just crushed it!  Bravo, bravo, bravo!  It was fun, it was technically fantastic, high energy and they really make such a fantastic team.  I am smiling ear to ear!

 

David Ross & Lindsay Arnold #teamLadyAndTheGramp

Dance:  Jazz

Song:  “Candy Shop” by 50 Cent

 

This is another fun partnership.  David is going way out of his comfort zone this week.  He almost cracked himself up at the beginning.  Their dance was filled with humor that is for sure.  David seems like such a great guy.  It was very, fun entertaining and creative.

 

Erika Jayne & Gleb Savchenko #teamPrettyXXpensive

Dance:  Jive

Song:  “Take Me to Heaven” by Patina Miller & Debbie Kurup & Amy Booth-Steel

 

I like this partnership too.  It will be interesting to see what the judges say about the content but, other than that I liked it was more stripped down and more of a focus straight on the dance.  It’s clear Erika and Gleb work really hard each week and they are a lot of fun to watch.  The Jive is a really tough dance and I think they just put a different spin on it instead of all the kicks and flicks.

 

 Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater #teamShadSquad

Dance:  Samba

Song:  “Swallia” by Jason Derulo featuring Nikki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign

 

This is another couple that I absolutely love this season.  They have already formed such a great working relationship and Rashad can MOVE!  They are doing crazy good this season and I could not be more excited for Emma to finally shine bright with an amazing partner.  I didn’t agree with Julianne on this one I thought they did a really great job tonight.  I really felt their scores were far too low.

 

Normani Kordei & Val Chmerkovskiy:  #teamValMani

Dance:  Foxtrot

Song:  “Big Spender” by Shirley Bassey

 

I don’t know how Val and Normani have been doing it, that kind of travel is hard core tough on your body.  They absolutely freaking crushed it tonight.  What a fabulous dance!  Normani has such a sparkling presence she shines the minute she takes the dance floor.  What a wonderful job!

Jeopardy:

Keo & Charo and Peta & Nick

 

Tonight we said goodbye to Keo & Charo.  Sad to see them go especially after their performance tonight.  Much love to you Keo, be proud of all you did this season.

I will be at the live show next week!  I am so excited to experience Most Memorable Year live!

 

Until Next Time,

 

XOXO

 

Heather

DWTS Season Premiere Season 24! 400th Episode

#dwts

DWTS Season Premiere Season 24! 400th Episode

I have been counting the days & weeks to the premiere!  Crazy it’s now Season 24!  Congratulations to DWTS on its 400th Episode!  I have personally never missed one!   It was another fantastic opening number!  It should be another dynamic season with a wide range of personalities as always!

Normani Kordei & Val Chmerkovskiy:  #teamValMani

Dance:  Quickstep

Song:  “Good Time Good Life” by Erin Bowman

 

This will be a challenging season for Val and Normani due to the fact they will be traveling while Fifth Harmony is one tour in Asia.  I think this pair has a lot of potential.  They had a very challenging first dance in the Quickstep but, I thought they did a really good job.  It was fun, full of energy and really kicked off the show the right way!

I did want to address one thing.  Some people thought Val was being cocky or saying something unkind about his partner when he talked about the averages.  That is 100% false and I don’t know why people have to jump to negative conclusions.  I went back and listened again to be sure I had it correct.  He was referencing Normani’s Grandmother that is a huge fan of the show and has a catalog of scores from all seasons from the very 1st.  He said with tonight’s scores it might lower his average and she will have to write them down in her catalog.

 

Nancy Kerrigan & Artem Chigvintsev #teamBladesOfGlory

Dance:  Viennese Waltz

Song:  “She’s Always a Woman” by Billy Joel

I am so excited for Artem this season.  He finally has a great partner and an athlete and I think they will go far in this competition.  I remember being a little girl watching Nancy in the Olympics.  She is so strong and full of grace and I believe this pair will be one to watch!

Their dance was elegant, beautiful and I think they did a fantastic job.  I look forward to watching Nancy grow this season.  I think each week she will feel more comfortable and relax a bit more but, it was a stunning opening performance!

 

 

Chris Kattan & Witney Carson #teamMangoTango

Dance:  Cha Cha

Song:  “What is Love” by Haddaway

 

Chris is an actor/comedian from SNL.  Witney doesn’t watch much TV so she wasn’t sure about any of his characters.  He did break his neck in the past so he is dealing with an injury.   Their dance was fun to watch and it did seem like he was trying to be in character of a bad dancer.

 

I think this team will need to put in a lot more work to make it in the competition.  Witney is very talented and I am sure she will continue to work hard and helping Chris grow as a dancer as the weeks continue.

 

Bonner Bolton & Sharna Burgess #teamDenimNDiamonds

Dance:  Cha Cha

Song:  “Move” by Luke Bryan

First of all they have serious chemistry.  It was cute watching Sharna blush!  Bonner broke his neck a year ago and was initially paralyzed and wanted to come and inspire people.  I predict this couple will be red hot all season long!  This was such a fun dance for the first week.  It was hot, it was a ton of fun to watch and for me they will be one to watch this season!

I wanted to comment too on Hand Gate.  Again I don’t know why some must automatically think the worst of someone.  When you watch the video you can see he wasn’t facing Sharna to know where his hand was he just went to put it around her waist when she came up to him.  Sharna commented on it last night on twitter “Anyone who has the ridiculous idea that it was intentional…is straight up stupid.  As in lacking the intelligence to realize it was innocent”.

 

Charo & Keo Motsepe #teamCuchiCuchi

Dance:  Salsa

Song:  “Cuban Pete” by Mambo Companeros

Keo absolutely has his hands full this season.  Charo has a big personality but, I am glad he is getting another shot as a Pro because he is very talented and such a nice guy.  Their first dance was extremely energetic and fun.

I don’t know what happened at the end after the judge’s comments.  I absolutely think she might want to relax a bit and listen to the judges or she’s going to give the audience the wrong impression.

 

Nick Viall & Peta Murgatroyd #teamBabyGotBach

Dance: Cha Cha

Song:  “Let Me Love You” by DJ Snake & Tiesto featuring Justin Bieber

 

First of all, welcome back to Peta and congratulations on beautiful baby Shai.  I wasn’t sure at all what to expect from Nick as a dancer.  He surprised me a bit.  He executed the moves well but, I agree he needs to try to relax and make it flow a bit more.  It seemed a bit stiff.

Peta is known to always bring out the best in her partners and I am sure she will continue to work to bring out all of Nick’s strengths.  He definitely has the determination to grow and continue to improve.

 

Heather Morris & Maksim Chmerkovskiy #teamMaksimumHeat

Dance:  Viennese Waltz

Song:  “Make Something Beautiful” by Ben Rector

 

I worry a bit about this pair just because of the chatter about it not being fair she is on the show because her title on social media says Professional Dancer.  My opinion is everyone needs to give her a fair shot as ballroom and Latin dancing with a partner are very different than what she has done in the past.  Julianne touched on that as well during her comments.  We should also remember that she is not the first person on the show that has had dance experience.

Their first dance was full of grace, she is very light when she dances and she was able to get into character.  It was beautiful and they will be one to watch this season.

 

David Ross & Lindsay Arnold #teamLadyAndTheGramp

Dance:  Quickstep

Song:  “Go Cubs Go” by Steve Goodman

 

David is the first baseball player to be on the show and seems to have a really fun personality.   This partnership will be a lot of fun to watch and Lindsay is really good at pulling out her partner’s strengths.

Their first dance was a ton of fun to watch!  I think David will surprise people this season as he gets more comfortable each week.  I thought for a first week they did a good job.  They definitely had the performance factor!

 

Erika Jayne & Gleb Savchenko #teamPrettyXXpensive

Dance:  Salsa

Song:  “XXPENSIVE” by Erika Jayne

 

I have always liked Erika on Real Housewives because she keeps it real.  When I found out she would be paired with Gleb I was excited to see what they come up with this season.  They are sure to bring the heat and the sizzle.

I thought they did a good job in the first week. It was sexy and they performed well!   I think if they just relax a bit they will be one to watch this season.  I am excited to see them tackle a ballroom routine and show some of her vulnerability.

 

Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater #teamShadSquad

Dance:  Cha Cha

Song:  “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars

 

I am beyond thrilled for Emma that she has a great partner this season and I was literally on my feet clapping for them as they were dancing last night.  They are in it to win it and absolutely will be one to watch this season.  Their personalities mesh so well and I bet they bring the fun all season long!

Their performance literally lit up the room!  Bravo!  I cannot wait to see what they do this season and it was awesome to see Emma beaming and so excited.  She’s the sweetest!

 

Mr T & Kym Herjavec #teamDancinFools

Dance:  Cha Cha

Song:  “Theme from the A-Team” by Mike Post, Pete Carpenter & The Daniel Caine Orchestra

Welcome back to Kym it’s always nice to have her on the show!  Mr T was one of the cast members I was interested to watch this season.   I use to watch the A-Team as a kid and I know he has done a lot of work with youth over the years.

He has basic rhythm and a lot of positive energy.  I think the more comfortable he gets the more we will see from this team.  They have potential for sure.

 

Simone Biles & Sasha Farber #teamGoldenGiggles

Dance:  Tango

Song:  “Untouchable” by Tritonal and Cash Cash

 

This is another pair that is in it to win it!  They both have such fun playful personalities and it will be a really fun match up!   They had so much content skill for an opening week performance.

They were fantastic tonight.  Simone was very graceful, they were a ton of fun to watch and I know this team will go far this season.

 

 

 

This season will be a ton of fun to watch and there is so much talent!  It will be interesting to see who will make the final 3!  As a fan I couldn’t be more excited!

Top of the leaderboard was Simone/Sasha.  Bottom was Witney/Chris

DWTS We Came to Dance 2016-17

Dancing With the Stars

#dwtstour

We Came to Dance Winter 2016-17

This was my 4th Dancing with the Stars tour (#DWTSTOUR) and hands down the BEST one to date! The stage set up with fantastic, great music/dance selection and the cast was filled with not only great talent but, the kindest people.

I am attending 5 shows on this tour and have one more to go in Costa Mesa on the last night of the tour and did VIP for each.  If you want to learn about their amazing VIP experience check out this link:  http://lightscmemories.com/vip/dwts-vip-came-dance-tour-2016-17/ and I have also kept track of the cast photos and mingles as I know many of my followers like to guess who will be in their VIP:  http://lightscmemories.com/entertainment-blog/dwts-tour-cast-meet-greet/

Cast: Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Sharna Burgess, Laurie Hernandez, Lindsay Arnold, Artem Chigvintsev, Gleb Savchenko, Keo Motsepe, Emma Slater, Alan Bersten, Jenna Johnson and Hayley Erbert!

This year’s tour really focused on each dancer’s story and it was so beautifully put together.  You would find yourself laughing, in tears, with goosebumps and just sitting on the edge of your seat.  To highlight just a sample:  Val and Laurie perform a few of their favorite dances from the season, there is a section on favorite movie dances that is just fun and stunning at the same time, special dances for just the men and just the women and a lovely moment as Emma shares the story of her engagement. The girls and Artem perform a fun Spice Girls number that will really take you back.  I loved the opening & closing numbers and the piece they all participate in on how they put together the dances each week.  There is also a section after intermission that will leave you in stitches it is so hilarious.  Jenna Johnson performs a really amazing number to Seduces Me that is just breathtaking.  Sharna & Val perform a high energy jive that just totally rocks and Sharna performs a steamy tango with Alan that I just loved!  Alan and the ladies perform a special number that will leave every man in the room jealous of him.  Artem and Gleb heat up the stage in their respective pieces that tell their stories.  Lindsay hits all the right notes in her dances too including the one she dedicates to her Dad…Crazy Train.  Keo also has some moving pieces to his life story and a rumba with Emma.   Jenna and Artem perform a special piece from La La Land that is visually and emotionally stunning.  The contemporary numbers that Jenna & Artem and Hayley and Val do are so beautiful and passionate.  The number that makes me cry and I get goosebumps every night is Sharna’s story.  I don’t want to spoil it for those that have not yet seen it but, it’s a story some can really relate to and will pull at your heart strings for sure.   This was just a quick highlight of my thoughts.  All of the performances are just amazing!

Every style of dance was perfectly portrayed, you could feel the raw emotion and energy and each performance flew by because it was just that good.  This year’s tour was very fast paced which I loved it seemed to be shorter numbers but, with a lot more content packed in which I absolutely loved.

You will absolutely walk out of the theater feeling like you have truly gotten to know the Pro’s.  They open their hearts and souls to us in this tour.  So often on DWTS it’s always focused on the celebrity. It was so special to learn all of their stories and see how it shaped their joy not only in dance but, in life.

The dancers gave it their all every single night of the performances and I cannot say enough what a privilege it was to meet them at the meet and greets, but to sit in the audience and watch their talent and brilliance come to life.

For even more photos please visit my Instagram, Twitter or Facebook pages @lightscmemories!

Also thank you and shout out to VIP Host Anthony Jones for continuing to be our rock star, taking truly memorable pictures, always being very organized and truly being invested in the fan experience!

Until next time,

Xoxoxo
