Dancing With The Stars- Week 2!!!

Hi everyone! Monday was Week 2 of Dancing With The Stars, and I wanted to share my thoughts on the night with you all! :)

(Isn't this a cute cast photo??? It's from last week but who cares? I like it.)

The theme of the night was My Jam Monday, where each celebrity picked a favorite song to dance to. It's always a fun theme, although personally I can't wait for Disney week!!!

First up, we had Chris Soules and Witney Carson. It was alright I guess, but it wasn't really anything phenomenal. The judges seemed to agree, with some pretty bad scores- 21/40.

Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani were the next to hit the floor. I actually really liked their dance! She reminded me a lot of Betsey Johnson from last season. She may be 60, but she can dance! She was very sassy, and the routine was just really fun. :)

Next up, we had Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson! Oh my goodness, I loved this dance. It was so fun, and absolutely adorable. I love this couple so much. They're so cute, and much to my surprise, Robert is actually really good! He got a 28/40, which I thought was too low, especially considering some of the other scores. I'm definitely rooting for them!!

Charlotte McKinney and Keo Motesepe danced next. Charlotte has apparently been getting a lot of hate over the course of the past week, and while I felt bad for her, she kind of brought that on herself in my opinion by some of the things she did last week. Her dance this week was better though, and I thought her costume was a better choice.

Michael Sam and Peta Murgatroyd were up next. Michael kind of falls into the same category as Chris, in my opinion. He's alright, but he's just nothing really remarkable. I did NOT think that he should have gotten the same score as Robert though, with a 28/40. '

Going sixth, we had Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy. Wow. W.O.W. Rumer is amazing. I really think that she has a great chance at the win. She has a ton of natural ability, and a fabulous work ethic. Definitely a contender. She got decent scores, 32/40.

RedFoo and Emma Slater performed next. They did a jive, which suited RedFoo pretty well, but dancing isn't exactly his skill. He's has a great personality and stage presence, but technique is not his strongest point. It wasn't bad, though.

Up next with an impressive Argentine tango was Willow Shields and Mark Ballas, otherwise known as Team Markingjay. I love that team name!! XD So perfect. Their dance was actually really good, too. Definitely an improvement over last week. They had these great paint splattered costumes, which was a cool creative touch on Mark's part. And the lifts looked great. They scored 32/40, the same as Rumer and Val.

I still adore Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess. He really is just so phenomenal, and I love to watch him perform. And Sharna is just doing such a fabulous job on the choreography, I'm super impressed. And he dedicated his number to his girlfriend, which was super sweet. The best part was at the end, when his girlfriend showed up after them not seeing each other for six months while she's in basic training. It was so cute! :) <3

Oh. My gosh. Oh. My. Gosh. I am in awe. Nastia and Derek were absolutely INCREDIBLE. We had to rewind and watch it again, it was that amazing. The beauty of this number was just so phenomenal. Derek did such a great job choreographing it, and I really can't even put into words how much I loved it. It was perfection. Go watch it! They got the first 9's of the season, and they definitely deserved it. Nastia could seriously win. Best number of the night.

Riker Lynch and Allison Holker went next, and let me just say, his hair looks soooooo much better slicked back. It's way too shaggy normally. As for the dance, it just didn't feel quite as much like a foxtrot to me, but that's more the choreography, not Riker. He showed a lot more grace this week though, so I think he definitely has a lot of potential. He scored a 32/40.

Finishing out the night was Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev. Haha, that was such a fun/funny number. To quote, "I want to go to the club with her!"

Once everyone was done dancing, it was time for the part of the night that no one likes- elimination. RedFoo and Emma, Suzanne and Tony, Charlotte and Keo, and Chris and Witney were all in jeopardy. It was then narrowed down to RedFoo and Emma, and Suzanne and Tony. Suzanne ended up being safe, and RedFoo was sent home. I was kind of disappointed to see RedFoo go home, just because I wanted to see how he would do in some different styles of dance. I am glad that it was him, though, instead of someone like Rumer, or Noah, or Willow or Nastia.

So, did you watch the show? Who's your favorite?

  4. I got into DWTS last season, but I've only seen bits of this season, since I've happened to have friends over the past two weeks. I'm guessing that won't change this week either, but for now I'm content watching the dance off Youtube. This season I'm totally for Riker and Allison. They work so week together and I think Riker is really good!

  5. I've never seen Dancing With the Stars, but I know that a violinist named Lindsey Stirling played a song on the show with Alison and Twitch. I don't know if you saw that, but Lindsey Stirling is an awesome musician (my favorite) and you should check her out on iTunes or Spotify.

    2. I didn't see the actual episode (Lindsey made a blog about it) but even with the horrible lighting and screaming fans both the dancers and Lindsey did really well.
