    That is a cool idea. Maybe you can contact ABC with it. I posted a link the other day.
    You only get so many characters or I'd have suggested they find something else to fill time with as watching the dancers go up and down stairs (especially after the dance) is not really that entertaining to me at all.

    I hope Dorothy is able to come back on another season.

    Karina and Jacoby along with Aly and Mark danced on Kelly and Michael today. Aly wore more of a street dress which was much more flattering than some of the costumes she wore! Michael Strahan showed he has some moves also.Kelly made the remark that he should be on the DWTS:D

    Just read an interview with Kellie Pickler. Seems that Derek and Bruno have both encouraged her to look at Broadway. She said she would consider it when her summer tour is over!:)

    I agree about Aly's outfit! I was thinking the same thing.

    That's an interesting idea.
    She appears to have more range; and broader appeal as a performer, than she has been allowed to show thus far.

    I could see her in Annie Get Your Gun, if that ever returns to Broadway.

    I liked the way Zendaya and Val looked together. Their relative heights didn't bother me.

    My thoughts exactly. :) I could also see her as Nellie in South Pacific, though I doubt that will get revived again so soon.

    Kellie looks like Rene Zellweger as Roxie Heart in "Chicago". I can totally picture Pickler taking the gig playing Roxie on Broadway.


    It was super smart of Derek to strip down their super-sized finale to put the focus on their dancing, which was what this competition was supposed to be about. I'm not sure if any of the other pros would've been savvy enough to have done the same thing. Karina and Val took the too obvious route by trotting out the drum corps and the dancing children, respectively, which served only to distract (and put off some voters) rather than enhanced their performances.

    I can see this, as well.
    I believe that she can do justice to more sophisticated vehicles, as well as the obvious options.

    Since this thread was bumped back up, I wanted to mention a couple of things involving past celebs. The Marie show is being cancelled, but is still running some new shows at the moment. Also, at least 2 of the daytime soaps including All My Children, and One Life to Live can now be seen on Oprah's channel (OWN).

    I doubted anyone wants a new DWTS thread yet so I will post here. It has been reported that Valerie Harper will be on next season and she is partnered with Dorothy's former partner, Tristan. I give her so much credit! (I am assuming her doctors gave her the ok to participate safely).
    If you believe TMZ there are other people listed on there as possibly coming on the show including Leah Remini, Snooki (Maybe she will have a baby nursery in studio?), Amber Riley from Glee, and others.

    They'll do the big reveal thing on September 4 on Good Morning America. Its always interesting to see how true the rumors turn out to be. But please no Snooki!!

    Interesting about Tristan if it turns out true, but can't they give him a ringer so we can see him on the show longer! :grope:
    PeterG and (deleted member) like this.

    Other rumors include Jack Osbourne, the Tanning Mom (seriously????), Paula Deen and Abby Lee Miller (Dance Moms). Not a great cast if it turns out to be true...

    LOL! On the other hand, she might learn something about artistic discipline being around such talented choreographers and costume designers.

    Well if the rumor about Gabby Douglas turns out to be true we can all guess her partner. She is athletic, flexible, young, has good movement and a huge fan base. Derek will be so happy.

    I haven't seen it confirmed that Derek will dance this season. I have only seen Cheryl, Val, Karina and Tony in those annoying Facebook video teases about partnerships.

    Just read that Derek, Val, Tony, Sharna, Tristan, Karina and Cheryl will be back this season. Sasha will move up from the dance troup and is rumored to partner Snooki. Not returning are Kym, Anna and Chelsie.

    Kym is apparently returning to Australia to be a judge on the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars.

    Blergh. Rooting for Amber means rooting for Derek? OTOH maybe this means they think she'll do well. :shuffle:

    Our local ABC station just reported comedian Bill Engvall as a celebrity dancer.
