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=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 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.

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,

DWTS VIP We Came To Dance Tour 2016-17

DWTS VIP We Came To Dance Tour 2016-17

#dwtstour

I’ve had the pleasure of being a VIP for the last four 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 every year!  So let’s talk about the details of the VIP!

Pre-Show: For my 1st show in San Jose I had the Front Row Meet & Mingle VIP Package.  We received our pre-show email about 3-5 days ahead from VIP Nation.  For our show we had to arrive between 5-6 pm (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.

We Came to DanceVIP Shout Out!  I was thrilled to see that we have one of VIP Nation’s best hosts Anthony Jones for this tour!  He also did the Maks & Val Tour this summer.  He is not only a really nice guy, he gets it and works to post pictures as quick as he can (remember we all have to be patient), he checks the photos after he takes them and truly cares about the customers.  High-five Anthony when you see him in your city because he really is a rock star for the fan experiences!

Entering VIP:   We arrived about 15 min before check in and just waited outside the doors.  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.  For this venue we didn’t know what seats we would be in until we picked up our envelope.  I was thrilled with the seats we had!  They are distributed in the order you purchase the tickets.  We also picked up our 1 drink ticket, the tote bag for this package included an umbrella, blanket, signed tour program (Note it’s different for each pkg).  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.  One other detail note that was different than past tours but, I am not sure if this was venue related or how it will be on the entire tour but, they took ALL gifts as you were checking in.  They said it’s because they had to check them before giving them to the dancers.  I understand both sides if it’s for dancer security by all means but, there were a lot of disappointed people so just expect that going in so you are not bummed out.

Now on to the good stuff!  After check in we were directed upstairs.  For this venue the layout was a bit odd compared to other venues I have been to but, they have to work with the space the building offers.  We didn’t wait very long at all when they started telling Group A to line up.  A few minutes later we saw Keo and Alan 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 Val & Laurie being consistent ).   To give you an idea for our cast photo we had Val, Laurie, Sharna & Gleb.  I will update this after each show to give you all an idea:

DWTS Tour Cast Meet & Greet

The photos were wonderful as always, it was my first time meeting Laurie & Gleb and it was so fantastic to see Val & Sharna.  Anthony takes great care in taking the photos for us.  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 Anthony, no selfie options in the main photo.  You could however do selfies with the dancers in the Meet & Mingle.  The green screen operator for this city wasn’t the best at taking the shots and they were having issues with the Wi-Fi not being fast enough so the green screen pictures were very hit or miss on if you got them in your email.  However, Anthony with VIP Nation being the rock star host that he is, is already on it for us!  I noticed today in the photos link there is one for the Meet & Greet pictures and then one for the Photo booth.  That was smart thinking to just upload them all vs having issues city to city with Wi-Fi.  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.

Please note on the pics:  the itinerary says up within to 2 weeks.  I know it’s super hard to be patient but, I know Anthony will post as quickly as he can.  He is one of the best in speed to get them posted.

 

 

 

 

Show time!  I am going to do a separate blog on the actual show after my next one in January.   I also do not want to spoil anything for those that haven’t seen it yet.  I will say this for now.  It is AMAZING and you should be very excited and counting down the days until you go!  It’s the best tour they have done to date.  It’s formatted a bit like the Maks & Val Tour whereas it tells a story in many segments which I loved.  It allows you to get to know the dancers better by hearing their individual stories.  It’s also very fast paced but, I loved the pace of the show this time.  You were on the edge of your seats the entire show wondering what was going to happen next.  The other difference from the past tour is there was no audience engagement like the kick off of the last tour and they don’t bring anyone on stage.

You will get to see a few of the best dances of our Mirrorball Champions Val & Laurie and a few other truly amazing performances by the cast from this season.  However, my lips are sealed on more details for now so you can be surprised and enjoy the shows in your city.

Bravo & Thank you:  VIP Nation you always put together fantastic unique experiences and it doesn’t go unnoticed! Thank you again for putting Anthony on this tour!  Mandy Moore, Supervising Choreographer Amy Tinkham, Creative Director and Guy Phillips, Executive Producer 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 (Val, Laurie, Sharna, Gleb, Artem, Lindsay, Keo,  Emma, Jenna, Hayley & Alan 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! http://www.dwtstour.com/#tour

Dancing with the Stars 23-Mirrorball Champions!

Mirrorball Champions are…

#dwts

img_6674I have been a fan of this show ever since Season 1 and I have to say this season will be a hard one to top.  The entire cast truly came in with a great attitude and really put in the effort.  It was hard not to fall in love with the personalities and stories of each of our stars this season.  There were so many shining stars.

 

 

Just a few quick notes:

img_6717

  • RIP to the wonderful Florence Henderson who sadly passed away on Thanksgiving. She was a contestant on DWTS and a regular smiling face in the audience.
  • Congratulations to Mark Ballas & BC Jean who were married on Friday.
  • This season also brought the engagement in the ballroom of the very kind Emma Slater and Sasha Farber! They are both such sweethearts and it will be a night we always remember from Season 23

 

 

 

  • MirrorballI want to give a huge shout out to the Season 23 Dance Troupe: Brittany Cherry, Alan Bersten, Hayley Erbert, Keo Motsepe, Britt Stewart, and Dennis Jauch.  You all worked so hard all season and truly provided us with fantastic quality and creative dance numbers.  I think it’s time to have a few of the troupe members from the last several seasons get a chance at Pro.  They truly have proved themselves.
  • It was announced on the finale that Laurie would be joining the #dwtstour #wecametodance. I am sure she will be a fantastic high energy addition to the show and I look forward to seeing her perform.
  • I will be attending a handful of tour shows and will be posting pics to my various pages starting with my Instagram page so please feel free to follow me @lightscmemories.

 

img_6681On to the finale:

I absolutely loved the opening number.  Choreographed by the amazing Mandy Moore.  She is an absolute creative genius.

Andy Grammer also performed his new single Fresh Eyes tonight.  Andy is not only a DWTS alum he is a fabulous live performer.  If you get a chance to check him out in concert, do it!  Allison and Keo danced along to his performance and did a beautiful job!

cx7udgyxuaagixl-jpg-largeIt was too fun to watch Maureen McCormick live her huge fan dream of dancing with Babyface, Ryan, Artem, Keo and Dennis tonight.  Maureen was one that I truly felt grew a lot this season.  It’s always fun when a star is also a fan of the show because it allows us at home to live it through their eyes.

The number that Maks did with a group of the ladies was a lot of fun too.  It was so nice to have Maks back this season.  I know he has said he won’t be returning next season because we will enjoying his time being a new Daddy.  I am so happy for him and Peta and wish them so much happiness!

img_6723I loved the friendship that developed between Vanilla Ice and Rick Perry this season.  Vanilla’s performance was a fun blast from the past and even though they might not have been the strongest dancers the partnerships between Witney/Vanilla and Emma/Rick were fun to watch all season and both did work hard.

 

 

For the first time ever it came down to 3 athletes in the finale!

img_6725Sharna Burgess & James Hinchcliffe
#TeamStopandGo

They chose their favorite dance to perform again which was the Foxtrot from Cirque night which was a great pick for them.  Full of energy and truly highlighted the skills, fun and fabulous relationship of this team.  James and Sharna had that something truly special.  Sharna has such a humble, unique, genuine way she builds relationships and performs.  She has had several memorable partnerships but, this one truly had that very special magic.  James had tremendous growth all season, he has such an amazing survival story and a personality that shines.

img_6672The gift that James gave to Sharna of the race suit he wore the first time he raced again after his accident was truly sweet.  Sharna truly put together the most amazing piece to close the chapter on James’s survival journey.  They performed a fusion dance of Foxtrot & Viennese Waltz.  It was absolutely beautiful.  James demonstrated all the grace in his movements and it again highlighted the beautiful friendship that developed between them this season.  It was stunning.

 

img_6728Calvin & Lindsay
#TeamLindsatron

Calvin and Lindsay chose their Argentine Tango from Latin Week as their favorite dance and it was a fabulous choice for them as well.  That dance was filled with passion, absolutely out of this world lifts and it absolutely was a great reminder of the growth that Calvin has had this season.  Calvin really had such a glowing personality and it was fun to watch him develop into a dancer this season.

img_6670Calvin & Lindsay did a Jive & Quickstep fusion.  Calvin and Lindsay almost developed a big brother/little sister relationship this season. Calvin should be so happy with his journey this season.  He grew immensely and I think kept his attitude on the fun this entire season.  He was a joy to watch!  Their fusion dance was a lot of fun, high energy and again showed off all the great dance qualities that Calvin brought to the floor.

 

 

img_6722Laurie Hernandez & Val Chmerkovskiy
#TeamVaLaur

Laurie and Val picked their Trio Dance with Maks for their favorite dance.  This Samba was crazy good and it absolutely highlighted Laurie’s amazing skills and the ability to truly get into character of the dances.  Plus who wouldn’t want to dance with the Chmerkovskiy brothers.  Laurie has been such a bright light this season.  She showed a lot of talent, positive energy, poise, courage and maturity beyond her years.

img_6669Val and Laurie had a Foxtrot & Argentine Tango Fusion dance.  Their package was so adorable.  It was sad hearing them talk about this season ending.  I think Val was a tremendous positive influence on Laurie.  Laurie grew so much before our eyes and is truly a remarkable young lady.  Their fusion dance was incredible.  Laurie had that fire, pure determination and the look of champion in her eyes when they started that fusion dance.  I do disagree with those that felt Laurie had an edge this season because of gymnastics.  Laurie was the first gymnast that didn’t use the tricks in the dances this season.  I can speak from personal experience at a lower level.  I was a cheerleader and when I started taking ballroom & latin dance lessons it is totally different and definitely not easy to learn to dance with a partner.

 

img_6673More on the finale…

The holiday performances of Babyface and Felicia Barton and the beautiful dance numbers performed by Artem & Jenna and Allison and the dance troupe really got you in the holiday spirit!

That all male dance number was totally off the hook.  Hmmm wondering if we might get to see that on the DWTS Tour this year like we did the Magic Mike number from last year’s finale.  I know they are going to switch up the format a bit this year. img_6727

What a treat to get to see Jana & Gleb’s hot Argentine Tango again.  That dance will absolutely go down in the DWTS history as being one of the hottest numbers of all time.  I am really excited that Gleb will be joining the tour this winter.  It will be nice to meet him and see him perform live!

Terra and Marilu’s special highlight number was also a lot of fun to watch.  Many people were asking where Derek was, he was at rehearsals for Hairspray Live!

The Macy’s Stars of Danimg_6721ce number was also choreographed by the amazing Mandy Moore.  This was truly remarkable.  It was creative, it was a technical and visual delight the way she was able to bring the story into motion using the special screen to make the young girl’s dream a reality.  It truly was an absolute Masterpiece!

I loved the tour preview dance we had tonight.  I highly recommend the tours, if you are able to go you will not be disappointed.  It’s always a fantastic entertaining time and the cast this year is fantastic!

Jana’s performance of her hit song Circles as we watched the video of the final 3 couples was just perfect.

The Results:

Lindsay and Calvin came in 3rd place.

MirrorballSharna & James and Val & Laurie were the final two couples and truly they were both so good it could have been a tie this season.  Each partnership just had that special something.  The talent, the creativity of Val & Sharna with their respective partners was just unstoppable this year.  I would have been absolutely thrilled if their partnership had won.

 

Sharna & James came in 2nd place.

Mirrorball

 

Dancing with the Stars Season 23 Winners are:

Laurie & Val! 

Bravo & congratulations to Laurie & Val.  What a season it was and your partnership was just incredible.  It was great to see Val relaxed and so happy and Laurie grew and improved as a dancer and just proved she was the total package with dynamic ability.  Laurie you absolutely do inspire as does Val!  Keep it up!

Paige VanZant & Mark Ballas

#teamPowRightInTheKisser

Trio:  Alan Bersten-Samba- “Hip Hip Chin Chin” by Club Des Belugas

This trio will be amazing!  They said they picked Alan because they had great chemistry when they danced together the week Mark was out with his back injury.  I thought the dance was fun, creative, energetic, really allowed Paige to show off her danPaige Triocing ability and truly be the lead.  Len said BRILLANT!  Bruno said she is the Queen of the Jungle.  Carrie Ann said she is unstoppable!  Everyone is still trying to figure out if Alan and Paige are dating…too cute!  If they are I think they would make an adorable couple.

Scores:  10-10-10 (Perfect Score 30 out of 30!)

Argentine Tango- “One Time” by Marian Hill

Paige told the story of her life growing up.  She highlighted that she did individual dance for many years and then she decided to do cheerleading.  That is when the bulling started girls that didn’t make the squad bullied her terrible.  Her family moved to Reno to get Paige out of that environment.  That is when Paige started to learn MMA.  Before everyone starts saying it isn’t fair Paige has dance exCeGvaQ3XIAE9fGoperience.  I can say from personal experience it’s very different taking individual dance and dancing with a partner.  It might give an edge on some things like lines & musicality but, the movement with a partner is totally different.  Their Argentine Tango was sexy as hell, lots of great lifts, a fun storyline and overall a great job!  Bruno loved how nasty it was and said it was like watching 50 shades of Paige.  Len liked it but, felt it was a little too sexy for his taste.

Scores:  10-9-10 (29 out of 30)

 

 

Antonio Brown & Sharna Burgess

#teamBoomin

Trio:  Hayley Erbert Argentine Tango-“Mi Confession” by Gotan Project

Sharna picked Hayley because she is super fierce!  I felt they should have had Antonio highlight his ability more in the beginningAntonio Trio Fixed rather than just strike poses.  Sharna and Hayley did a great job with the choreography.  Overall they did a good job.

Scores:  9-9-9 (27 out of 30)

Contemporary- “Hall of Fame” by The Script

Antonio shared his less than ideal time growing up.  His parents split up and he didn’t have that male role model and he and his Dad struggled in their relationship.  His Dad said if he had it to do over again he wouldn’t have left.  He was the underdog because of his size and circumstances but, he had that inner drive and motivation to make something of himself.  He made it in the 6th round of the NFL draft.  Many shared that the best thing about Antonio is he is a great Dad.  Sharna choreographed a beautiful dance truly highlighting Antonio’s life story.  The lifts were incredible, you could feel the emotion in the dance and overall I thought it was really good.  They got their 1st 10 from Bruno!

Scores:   9-9-10 (29 out of 30)

 

Wanya Morris & Lindsay Arnold

#teamYaYaZee

Trio:  Witney Carson Paso Doble- “Explosive” by David Garrett and Frank Heijden and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Lindsay and Wanya chose Witney because they had danced together in switch up week and she is Lindsay’s best friend.  Wanya noted that he was so focused on the work he forgot to have fun.  Wanya has such a humble way about him, you cannot help but want him to succeed.  The dance was fierce, it was hot, precise, great choreography and was just simply amazing!Wanya Trio

Scores:  10-10-10 (Perfect scores 30 out of 30!)

Charleston- “Shame on Me” by Avicil

Wanya’s family was so cute.  They saw at a very young age that he could sing. He grew up in the projects in Philly.  He dealt with a lot of struggles.  Wanya dreamed of becoming a star.  They formed the band Boyz II Men and really hit the ground running.  Wanya turned around and helped his family.  I think that is why he is so humble and kind, he never forgot where he came from.  His light shines so brightly.  Lindsay has learned selflessness from him.  Their dance was crazy high energy, so much fun, great musicality, precise and I just loved it!  Carrie Ann said he is her hero tonight and said he has electric feet.

Scores:  10-10-10 (Perfect score 30 out of 30)

 

Nyle DiMarco & Peta Murgatroyd

#redefiningdance

Trio:  Jenna Johnson Jive- “Hit the Road Jack” by Hermes House Band

Jenna said she was glad that she was in their Trio because she thinks they are going to win.  Jenna also took a few years of sign language in school so that helped her in communicating with Nyle.  It was great to show off the fun side of Nyle.  They did lose sNyle Trioome timing during the dance.  Overall I thought it was fun, cute, and full of energy.  Good job.

Scores: 9-9-9 (27
out of 30)

Argentine Tango- “Unsteady” by X Ambassadors

Nyle will be blindfolded for the dance tonight.  A lot has been said on social media about this that it’s been done before etc.  Yes it has but, not by someone that was also deaf.  Nyle will be relying totally on Peta’s body movement.  Nyle went to school because h13177215_1722869987925896_2380480704480100281_ne wanted to be a Math teacher and then Tyra stole him for America’s Next Top Model.  Nyle wants to stay on this platform because he feels he can make a larger impact for the deaf community.  He was blindfolded for part of the dance.  It was beautiful, moving, emotional, and impactful in so many ways.  I absolutely loved it.  Nyle said he likes to challenge himself and it truly came across so beautiful tonight.

Scores:   10-10-10 (Perfect score 30 out of 30!)

 

 

Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy

#teamGinandJuice

Trio: Artem Chigvintsev-Paso Doble- “Shot Me Down” by David Guetta

Val picked Artem because he is an incredible performer, teacher, choreographer and highlighted that Artem is more patient.  Val says Artem is the honey, he is mustard and Ginger is the chicken nugget lol.  I think Ginger might just be the luckiest woman on DWTS this week to be dancing with Val and Artem!  I loved it, I thought it was great.  It was strong, the character was on point, the choreography was fantastic and I really loved this trio together.  The judges pointed out aginger Trio few balance issues they saw in the dance.

Scores:  9-9-9 (27 out of 30)

Quickstep- “Fire Under My Feet” by Leona Lewis

Ginger’s parents also divorced when she was young.  She was very shy.  Ginger ended up with an eating disorder because she fVal Goodelt a need to control something in her life.  Her curiosity about weather developed into a passion.  She started on GMA in 2011.  Val said this was a fun & awesome season for him.  I have loved their partnership.  Their dance was light, fun, high energy, had a lot of content, and overall they did a great job.  Ginger has grown so much this season as a dancer, she truly is able to get into the harder characters now and should be very proud of all she has accomplished with Val.

Scores:  9-10-10 (29 out of 30)

 

Elimination Time:

That leaves the following 3 for the finals next week…VOTE! Voting will already count for the finals!  We know many times it comes down to the freestyle dance.  These couples all are good and unique in their own ways.  I hope they almost all strip it down and focus just on the dancing, less about props, big stage sets etc.  Some of my favorite freestyles since Season 1 focus on the skill, the music and truly letting the partner shine.   This season was one of the most talented in recent memory and all are worthy for the win!  Let’s see who brings their “A” game next week, I cannot wait!

Nyle & Peta

Ginger & Val

Paige & Mark

Season 22/Week 7

Crazy we are at week 7 already and tonight is double eliminations!  The opening with the 360 degree cameras was what they filmed when I was at the show, it was a very cool experience.  Tonight is Icons Week!

Jodie Sweetin & Keo Motsepe:  Quickstep
Music: “For Once in My Life” by Stevie Wonder

#teamMoSweetJodie2

Jodie has performed some seriously intense dances this season so far.  I am looking forward to something more lighthearted.  Jodie is trying to figure out what more they need to do to get higher scores.  I think it’s also new to Keo.  He is such a strong dancer and this is the furthest he has gone in a competition to date so they are figuring it out together.

Jodie and Keo should both be proud of their continued improvement.  This season is so tough because it has a crazy amount of talented individuals participating.  Jodie has consistently improved,IMG_2561 (2) she brings a strong desire to do well and to learn and they are a real joy to watch.  Absolutely loved their enthusiasm when their scores were announced.

Scores:   8-9-9 (26 out of 30)

 

Kim Fields & Sasha Farber:  Samba
Music: “ABC” by Jackson 5

#teamKimSha

13094104_10154137411266740_6897574259889636927_nI keep saying it but, Kim and Sasha are seriously the cutest partnership and you can tell they have formed a genuine friendship.  I love how Sasha likes to keep things light and wants to use last week’s scores to fuel their drive for this week.  This will be a fun week for them as they are dancing to a Jackson 5 song and Kim is friends with Janet.

Kim and Sasha are just a joy to watch, I thought the dance was light, the set and wardrobe was creative.  Kim is infectious with her energy.  The judges all liked it and had good comments for them.  Len said it was their best dance and I would agree!  It lead to their highest score this season and Kim was beaming.

Scores:  9-9-9 (27 out of 30)

 

 

Nyle DiMarco & Peta Murgatroyd:  Foxtrot
Music: “Beautiful Day” by U2

#redefiningdance

Nyle cauNyle2ght a lot of flak last week because of his comment about Val being his biggest competition.  He was able to clarify what he meant a bit more and he seemed to really take it to heart that people would be looking at him like he was cocky.  I don’t think there is anything wrong with aspiring to be the best in whatever field it is you are in, it’s good to stay motivated by that.12794640_1708426052703623_6862659142724183090_n

Peta put together a beautiful, stripped down Foxtrot to remind everyone what an amazing dancer Nyle is. It was absolutely moving and graceful.  I loved Peta’s overall look tonight too, that dress was gorgeous and the front braid was so pretty.  It was such an elegant dance and Nyle continues to amaze everyone.  The judges all liked it and I loved what Len said “others climb hills but, Nyle climbs mountains”.

Scores:   10-9-9 (28 out of 30) Yes there was another scoring issue, Bruno wrote down a 9 but, held up the 10 paddle.

 

Antonio Brown & Sharna Burgess:  Tango
Music: “Paint it Black” by the Rolling Stones

#teamboomin

I am so Antonio1glad that Antonio decided to stay in Los Angeles this week and really put everything into rehearsals.  They seem to be back on track and I am glad he is taking advantage of having an amazing coach on the show.

Sharna did an absolutely amazing, creative job with the chorography!  I loved it!  Antonio really seemed to get into the character and intensity of the dance.  I thought it was a great job.  Poor Sharna had a little wardrobe malfunction but, she handled it with her IMG_2560 (2)usual humor and grace.  I did wonder why Tom couldn’t have whispered something to her rather than bringing it up in such a public manner.  The judges all liked it but, they noticed a few mistakes.

Scores:  8-8-8 (24 out of 30)

 

Wanya Morris & Lindsay Arnold:  Foxtrot
Music: “I Say a Little Prayer” by Aretha Franklin

#teamyayazee

Wanya has losCep4rolWEAEOy_n.jpg larget some serious weight since starting the show and I do really like his humble attitude.  I never really care much for the packages that highlight the busy schedules because it always feels like they are trying to make an excuse.  They all have really busy schedules, some are flying coast to coast each week, others are in training camps etc.  What matters is do they find the time when it matters and put in the work when they can.

Their dance was cute, it was solid.  I definitely think Wanya excels more at the Latin dances and I really think that is because he hWayna1as such a big personality.  He is very likeable and clearly works hard.  I agreed with Carrie Ann that it was good but, she was wanting more.  Wanya has the right attitude and you can tell he is very motivated.

Scores:  9-9-9 (27 out of 30)

 

Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy:  Viennese Waltz
Music: “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston

#teamGinandJuice

Last wVal2eek’s scores and feedback had Ginger concerned and discouraged.  Val dialed up the drive and intensity so he could help her have a breakout week.  I personally love Val’s style, he wants what is best for his partner.  When he said he always does this and doesn’t want to ruin the experience for her it made me sad in a way.  Having a drive and a genuine care for your partner isn’t going to ruin the experience and Ginger is smart enough to see that.  That is one of the things I have always admired about Val compared to some other pros on the show, you can tell he does everything out of pure love and care for his partner not for his own personal gain/credit etc.Val Good

Their dance was stunningly beautiful.  Ginger absolutely embodied the character of the dance.  You felt like your heart was right there on the dance floor with them.  It was magical, graceful, powerful, romantic and absolutely perfect in every way.  Ginger and Val shined so bright and I loved it so much I watched it back a few more times!  The judges all LOVED it too!  Val,  I agree with Len, BRAVO on the beautiful chorography.

Scores:  10-10-10 FIRST PERFECT SCORE OF THE SEASON!

 

Von Miller & Witney Carson:  Salsa
Music: “A Little Less Conversation” by Elvis Presley

#teamBlondeMiller

I truly th13138926_10154137411271740_4484264791927205622_nink Von is finally relaxing and allowing people to truly see his personality.  I found myself finally routing for him the last 3 weeks.   This dance should be fun and I think it’s a great idea that Witney had to incorporate lifts and take advantage of Von’s strengths this week.

I thought he did a great job getting into character.  Witney did a great job of putting together a dance that would fit the character, that was fun, dynamic, and you can tell Von is having fun in this competition.  The judges all liked it over all, they felt it was a bit rough here and there but, overall good.

Scores:  8-8-8 (24 out of 30)

 

 

Paige VanZant & Mark Ballas:  Jive
Music: “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner

#teamPowRightIntheKisser

Paige mentioned that it sPaige1hook her confidence last week being in jeopardy.  It made me sad to hear her doubting herself and if people liked her and are voting for her.  Paige you are amazing, be confident! You are beautiful, talented, sweet and truly kind and that is why people are rooting for you!CeGvaQ3XIAE9fGo

Paige and Mark blew the roof off the studio with their absolutely AMAZING dance.  The energy, content, fun factor was out of this world.  They are a great partnership and I am enjoying Mark’s chorography this year.  He is truly working towards all of Paige’s strengths and all I can say after tonight is WOW!  That was so, so good!  Judges all loved it.  Len said it UFC-Under Full Control

Scores:  10-10-10 PERFECT SCORE!  

 

 

 

Team Dances:Men vs women

Men #teamJamesBrown

I thought their dance as good.  I can’t say it had the wow factor but, it was a solid and fun performance.  I absolutely noticed that when Nyle was slightly ahead of the music that everyone else just joined in and got in sync with him.  He continued to impress me to not only do good with Peta but, in a group setting with so many moving parts it was great.  They made a good team!

Scores:  9-9-10 (28 out of 30)

Women #teambeyonce

This will be an exciting team to watch.  They are all super motivated.   I thought it was overall good, it too was lacking the wow factor of past team dances but, it was solid.  Loved the focus on girl power!  The judges liked it but, commented on a few of the mistakes that they were able to see.  Len was commenting this season is so hard because you just have no idea who will win this mirror ball.

Scores:  8-8-9 (25 out of 30)

 

Double Elimination Time: 

In jeopardy this week are:

Wanya & Lindsaydouble elmination

Witney and Von

Kim and Sasha

We said goodbye to Kim/Sasha and Von/Witney.  Both couples should walk away with their heads held high.  They both improved each week and this season is filled with crazy talent.  They will be missed.  It’s sad to see Von go at a time I felt he truly was opening himself up more to the competition.  I will miss the joy Kim has brought to the show each week.

 

Next week:  The judges will team up the dancers and each will coach two couples and then the stars of each team will step away from their pros and dance together.  From what I am seeing it looks like the match ups will be:

Carrie Ann: Antonio/Sharna and Paige/Mark

Len:  Ginger/Val and Wanya/Lindsay

Bruno:  Jodie/Keo and Nyle/Peta

Each group dance will be judged by the two remaining judges and America.  Viewers can score celebrity performances alongside Len, Carrie Ann & Bruno, live, during the broadcast (EST/CDT).  To be part of the judges’ table, viewers must visit abc.com to score performances.  A combined overall viewer score for each performance will be counted alongside the judges’ score.  Each viewer may score a performance once, and the scoring window for each couple is open for 2 minutes, 15 seconds, beginning at the start of each routine.

Also want to compliment the troupe each performance tonight was amazing!  Great job!

Dancing with the Stars: Live Studio Audience #dwts

Dancing with the Stars: Live Studio Audience 4/18/16

#dwts

Make memories, don’t collect things…

About 10 years ago I had a friend from high school who tragically passed away from cancer far too soon and an Uncle that had saved his entire life to fulfill all of these dreams he had when he retired, he ended up with brain cancer and passed away before he had that chance.  Those two deaths truly changed my outlook on life.  You need to make memories, have experiences, make the most of every day because life changes in the blink oDSC00349f an eye.

I have been a viewer of Dancing with the Stars since season 1 and I had always hoped to one day be in the live audience.  A cast member at the show kindly offered to give me tickets to the show and to say I was excited would be an understatement.  I quickly determined who I wanted to take with me and made all the travel plans to get out to LA for the Switch Up week.

 

 

I arrived around 4:00 and went to the VIP check-in area.  They verified we were on the list aNylend told us what section we were in etc.  At that point they take your cell phones from you and you are given a card to pick them up after the show.  After that you go through a metal detector and they check your belongings.  Once you are set with that you are escorted into the studio to your section and then to your assigned seats.  It was such a surreal experience walking into the studio.  It was much smaller than it looks on TV.  We were seated on the 2nd level, front row directly across from the judges table and the interview room was directly to my left.  It was so exciting to actually be in the studio and to realize I would be able to see everything perfectly from where I was seated.

Not long after we were seated the various other groups were escorted to their seats.  The Audience Coordinator that is in charge of the audience energy etc. invited us down to the dance floor for a brief dance party before the show started.  As I was entering the dance floor area I nearly ran directly into Nyle DiMarco as he was trying to exit to the back of the studio.  We were able to take photos with a camera if we wanted while we were on the dance floor.  There was so much fun energy in the room I knew it would be a special
Paigenight.   After the 2 or 3 songs ended they asked us to take our seats.

Once everyone was back in their seats they rehearsed the opening number and the Audience Coordinator told us he would be telling us when to clap, cheer etc. and said they wanted to see a ton of energy out of us since the last two weeks they felt it was lacking a bit.  The energy in the room now was palpableDSC00357, I was beyond excited for the show to start.  A few minutes later we were told to start yelling and clapping as loud as we could and the show started live.  The opening number was absolutely amazing, full of energy and just flawless.  One interesting thing I noticed right away is it’s absolutely impossible for you to hear what Tom and Erin are saying in the studio because it is so loud.   When they are playing the packages that you see on TV they are running on two screens in the studio, one above the stairs to the main stage and then another in the back so their truly isn’t a bad seat in the house.  On the 2nd level there was only 2 rows and I am pretty sure the 3rd level was the same.  Another amazing thing that you see live is the set change outs.  They truly hustle to get those sets torn down and the new ones in within minutes on commercial breaks, I can only imaDSC00351gine how much more complicated it is on Disney week.

 

The judges were all so funny.  It was nice to have Maks on as guest judge.  I have read a lot of thoughts and comments about hMaksis guest spot and I will say my opinion is he was hard on some because he knows they can do better.  He has won the show, he knows what it takes along with all of his years of dance experience.

On commercial breaks they were doing trivia questions with the audience and it was nice to see how each of the couples gets in the zone so to speak ahead of their performance.  Some would stay loose, others would practice portions of their dances and others appeared to be running through their routiSharnane in their heads.  The beauty and pure emotion of some of the dances are just that much more intense in the live audience.  Nyle and Sharna’s dance for example had me in tears because you couldn’t help but, feel the emotion of every movement.  It’s a bit different than watching it at home.  The studio was actually a bit warm too which was a little surprising to me, I had always heard studios were more on the chilly side but, that’s probably for the safety of the pros/stars.

After the live show was over (it went SO fast), we were asked to stay in our seats because they were going to film the opening dance for week 7.  The pros had to go change to get ready for that and you could see the stars mingle a bit with their friends/family that had been in the audience that night.  After about 20 minutes the pros took the stage and did two takes for the opening number.  I don’t want to give away too much on that so it won’t spoil it when you watch.  Once that wGingeras done we all exited and got into this long line to get our cell phones back.  For more on what I thought on the dances please check out my weekly blog.

As a guest of someone on the show we had special access after the show to go back and say hello/thank you etc.  I have met most of the pros on the various tours over the years and I cannot say enough about down to earth, genuine, kind and talented they all are. It was nice to run into Sharna, Brittany, Hayley, Alan, Maks, Val and Keo. The stars that I came in contact with were also very nice.  Paige is stunningly beautiful and is having a greAlanat time on the show.  Kim is so sweet and just radiates happiness.  Nyle is even better looking in person, beyond handsome and Ginger is seriously the absolute nicest person.  Her husband Ben is incredibly funny and they really are the cutest couple.  I also saw Doug Flutie but, didn’t want to ask for a picture because he was with his friends and family at the time and already had quite a few people waiting for him.  He seemed to be very kind to each person he was interacting with.

If you ever have a chance to be a part of the live studio audience for either this show or another show that may be your personal favorite, I would highly recommend the experience.  It’s just such a fun eneKimrgy to be a part of the audience.  The dances are amazing on TV but, the emotion in person truly is palpable.  I will never forget this amazing experience and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity.
