I want that chandelier that is on the set...it would be perfect in my dining room.


Chelsea...good job for a first dance but boring.
Wendy...girl better learn how to shake that stuff!!!
Hines...he did good and is very limber for a football player:-)
Petra...graceful, she just needs to relax and be more fluid.
Romeo...he's got some moves, might piss off Lynn with the hip hop.
SugarRae...not bad, too stiff though.
Kendra...not bad but talk about a big ego, ouch!!!
Ralph...best dance of the evening-good partnership.
Chris...he tried, just glad he didn't rip his top off.
Mike...didn't like that choreography, it was a mess, I blame the professional.
Kirstie...woo hoo glad she was able to keep up, good match with the evil Maksim.

I think Cheryl and Chris will hang in there for a few shows. They won't win as he looks like he doesn't have any inner passion for dance...just for getting a trophy and that won't cut it.

Thought it was a good show though and nobody pissed Len off as much as Bruno...his flamboyance can certainly be annoying.

OMG...is that violinist a HOTTIE or WHAT!!!!

The Orchestra and the Costumes were great last night.

HaHaHa...a little article about the violinist...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Don’t worry. You weren’t the only one thinking “Hellooo, hot stuff!” when David Garrett showed his fine self on the Dancing with the Stars Season 12, Week 4 Performance Show.

It’s Classical Week and the DWTS set included a full 46-piece orchestra, joined by gorgeous multi-platinum mezzo soprano Katherine Jenkins and international violin virtuoso David Garrett. Let’s focus on the 30-year-old German hottie who looks like Brad Pitt meets Colin Farrell with maybe some Kurt Cobain thrown in for good measure.

According to an ABC press release, David Garrett has been dubbed "the fastest violinist in the world.” He appeared in the 2010 Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest-ever performer of the "Flight of the Bumblebee," clocking in at a pretty darn fast 66 seconds. Those are some dexterous fingers!

He’s been doing this for a while. At age 8, David played as a soloist in front of some of the world's greatest orchestras, including the London Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Russian National Orchestra. At 13 he was signed to the most famous and prestigious classical music label, Deutsche Grammophon. He later attended Juilliard music school and studied under the legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman, and has since gone on to gain international stardom, topping charts in Europe and selling out concert halls and arenas.

David’s sophomore album, "Rock Symphonies," debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Classical Crossover Chart in July 2010 and peaked at No. 1. The album is a mainstay of the Top 5, thanks to David’s vibrant interpretations of his favorite rock anthems by U2, Nirvana, Metallica and Aerosmith, to name a few. (We knew the Kurt Cobain thing wasn’t just a fluke.)

He also ranked as of one of the top-selling new artists of 2009, including best-selling new classical artist, and one of the top 10 new best-sellers across all genres that year. A public television superstar, his second headlining concert TV special, just released on DVD, has aired on stations all across the U.S. Audiences turned out in droves for his second U.S. concert tour this past February. Can’t imagine why!

Mr. Hot Violinist will return to DWTS Tuesday night to close out Classical Week with his rocking rendition of "Walk This Way," accompanied by the full orchestra and the equally attractive DWTS Dance Troupe.

My friend Sparky's wife, Cookie, watches this show and due to my having been there last night I saw the show for the second time. (The first time was when I was at their house last Tuesday night.) Despite the hype and mostly has-been "stars" it's kinda neat that what is essentially an old time variety show has such appeal. At times it seemed like Ed Sullivan could come out after a dance, thank the dancers, then introduce the next act. (A plate juggling chimpanzee would have been awesome.)

It was also cool to see a full orchestra playing on a TV show. (I guess that was a special event for the show?) Most interesting was hearing incidental music (violins playing dramatically) before a commercial break and seeing that the music was actually coming from the string section on stage.

I'm not a fan of the show (I'd really rather watch football than dancing and I friggin hate football) but I gotta admit the show can be sorta fun to watch with friends if your're allowed to openly crack jokes about the show. Stuff like Kendra Whatsit (who is famous for being part of a multiple girlfriend shack up with Hugh Hefner, has done several naked spreads in Playboy, and whose life for the past few years has literally been a reality show) crying after a bad performance and saying "I'm so embarrassed, I just want to go hide." Embarrassed, Kendra? I didn't think you had it in yuh.

Lackluster performance, but Romeo and Chelsea danced to a stage of tikis.

I have seen more of this show than I ever imagined I would or imagine I ever will again.

Last night me and the Woofmutt Super Friends ended up watching it (it's all Cookie's fault) and there was a collective WTF??? regarding the insane scores given to the clunky, hulking FrankenHines.

FrankenHines, who has the rhythm and grace of a tone deaf and half paralyzed elephant, once again clodded his way through a performance then received a perfect 30 from the judges and a standing ovation from the audience. How, huh, why? Oh that's right, he literally almost killed his partner during practice! So he was making a triumphant return from his feeling bad. Poor guy.

I'm assuming like most "reality" shows this one is rigged, but what's the real reason behind the FrankenHines love fest?

This was the most watched season of DWTS. I got home late a few times and missed some of it, but all in all it was entertaining.

Kirstie had to put up with a ton of fat jokes, but she had the popular vote behind her and hung in there till the final show...damned good for being 60 years old and dancing for two...however she lost some poundage dancing her arse off and really tried hard...good job.

Hines was not a twinkle toes at the beginning, but by the end he had become an excellent dancer. Glad he won, he deserved it.

...and now back to our regularly scheduled crap TV!!!

SO happy we don't have to watch Creepy Mark Ballas every week for the rest of this season!!! Pretty sure the public was voting to NOT keep him, rather than voting out his partner.

'Thinking Cheryl Burke would make a good exotica girl (see thread in general Tiki for the flavour of the genre).

Spoiler Alert...



OK...I admit, with the Mother Unit in residence, we have been watching DWTS this season. Hasn't been too bad, except for watching Emmet and Kirstie plow through their routines. I was sooooo hoping Giles would win (yummy) but he got eliminated tonight.

OK, I've been watching DWTS this season with the wife, earning (or, not losing) some points. Well, my great gosh! Forget about wifey-points, that free-style dance, tonight, by Derek and Kellie Pickler was worth it all. Amazing, balletic, evocative performance. Made my wife cry. And the audience and the judges. Things even got a little blurry for me, for a second.
