PostSubject: DWTS - Sept 26 and 27   September 26th 2011, 6:29 pm

I think I want to see how Nancy and Chaz are doing the most.

Here is an article about the new men pros.

Season 13 of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” has had people buzzing, and not just because of the controversial cast. The two new male dance pros are setting viewers’ hearts all aflutter with their good looks and great moves on the dance floor.
Meet Val Chmerkovskiy and Tristan MacManus.
Chmerkovskiy, 25, hails from Ukraine. He’s the little brother of Maks Chmerkovskiy, the longtime “Dancing” pro who is considered the bad boy of the ballroom.
MacManus, 29, is Irish, and although lots of people love his lilting accent, it sometimes confuses his partner, attorney and TV host Nancy Grace.
MacManus started dancing when he was 9. His other passion was soccer (known as “football” in the rest of the world), and he pursued them both.

“People never knew I danced until I was like maybe 16 or 17 …,” he told “Good Morning America” contributor and former “Dancing With the Stars” competitor Melissa Rycroft. “I used to go play football matches in the morning and I’d go straight from me football game to a dance competition.”
A dancer all his life, he’s performed around the world. MacManus has battled a knee injury and had knee surgery and come back better than ever. He came to the United States as part of Simply Ballroom, and stayed to appear in Burn the Floor.
The first time “Dancing With the Stars” approached him, he actually turned the show down because he’d already made a commitment to another show.

But, he said philosophically, “it all happens for a reason, like you know what I mean? You kind of have to take them chances. And again … it wouldn’t have been right for me to kind of jump ship a week after telling someone I’d stay, like, you know what I mean? So I’m glad I did. I’m glad I did stay there, and like I said, I was lucky enough, then … that’s when “Dancing with the Stars” came back to me for the next season.”
He comes from a family of dancers who’ve been supportive of him and he’s grateful for that.

“You don’t realize that there’s a lot of money that goes into that. Yeah, so you kind of take it for granted a bit, and I think I did that for a long time, and it’s nice now to kind of have, for it to pay off a little bit,” he said. “I put a lot of hard work in, and it’s … I can be proud of myself, for the work that I put in, but … I think it’s nice to be able to give something, as well. ”
Grace considers her dance partner a dancing purist.

“You are not going to see him — even though I’ve asked him to — rip off his shirt or do a stunt,” she said.
That’s probably a good thing. Judge Len Goodman is well-known for his dislike of non-dance dance floor antics.
The younger Chmerkovskiy brother started dancing when he was 6 in Odessa, Ukraine. That was before his family moved to Brooklyn.
In addition to being a world-class competitive dancer, Chmerkovskiy also is an accomplished pianist and violinist.

“Yeah, it was tough, you know, going to school with dance shoes in one hand and a violin case in the other,” he admitted to Rycroft.
He’s a self-described renaissance man who’s looking forward to the new opportunities that being on the show could present.
“That’s the most exciting thing about my position right now is that everything’s been so calculated my entire life, there’s a schedule since I was 8 years old. There’s a high-speed treadmill that I’ve been on for the majority of my life, and this is the first time that I … have the freedom to say I’m up for anything, you know. And tomorrow, if I get an opportunity to make a record or, you know, pursue music, I’ll do that. I’m a poet. I write lyrics. I write music. And if … something that comes up in music, I would love to pursue that. Uh, acting, very curious in that. Am I good at it? … Yeah, maybe not. Maybe not at the moment, but I’m willing to learn, and I’m willing to, you know, pursue anything that comes up. I’m very open to any new opportunities.”

And Chmerkovskiy isn’t ashamed to say he’s excited to be working with his older brother on the show.
“One of the reasons why I even started dancing was because my brother was dancing. … You know, I look up to my brother, I have a lot of respect for him. Uh, growing up he was my, I guess role model and … my teacher,” he said.
And if there’s just a hint of sibling rivalry, it’s all in good fun.

He’s determined to win the mirror ball trophy that has eluded his big brother for so many years. That means partner Elisabetta Canalis has her work cut out for her.
“He’s a very nice guy, you know, tough when he’s teaching, of course, but he’s a very nice guy,” she said.

I liked David better than the judges did ( even though her really was kind of bad on technique). I like Elizabetta less than the judges.

I really enjoyed David too.

Ricky did really well I thought. Even though Derek is an egomaniac no denying he is a good teacher and dancer.

I thought Nancy did well. I think her boob must have fallen out of her dress at the end, lol, just from some of the comments. Really whoever dressed her tonight should be shot.

I missed Nancy- but saw almost everyone else. I think I voted for just about everyone tonight (not Nancy- was out of votes by then, anyway). I felt llike the judges were off tonight. Len was extra poopy and basically hated everything.

Wilde - I don't know. I thought it had something to do with her boob falling out...maybe it was a shot they went to before the dance, I dunno.

J.R. was FANTASTIC...those judges' scores were way TOO LOW!!!!!!!

My daughter and I thought that was really strange. I THINK maybe they screwed up and flipped to a shot where they were watching or something.

It was good. He is a natural. The low scores are because of Karina. She made it more of a Lindy Hop instead of the Jive.

I thought JR was fabulous but the judges scoring was off tonight. Chynna should have gotten a better score and Elisabetta was scored too high.

I thought so too...on both counts. Loved Kristen and Mark at the beginning of the show. They were very good.
Why did it show the audience after Nancy danced and no one was clapping??
As much as I love Chaz, I think he should go and take care of his body. Very sad to watch him.

I shocked myself by giving Rob Kardashian some votes (I don't watch their show or anything). When he started talking about his poor body image, it moved me- and then I thought he danced well. Carson is SO fun, but he really wasn't very good- I'm a bit worried for him tonight. Elisabetta was much better than last week- but still not very good, imo- but big improvement. I really like a lot of this cast.

I read it was a "static shot" because Nancy had a "nip slip." lol!

THis is really a good cast. It is hard to say who will go home tonight. I loved JR, Kristen, and Ricki.

I just think Derek is amazing. I have been hard on him the last couple seasons because has been getting the ringers and it was bugging me. But, I think he is hands down the best teacher and choreographer.

I would be fine with Nancy, Chaz, Rob, or Elisabetta leaving.
I am a little worried about Hope, David, and Carson being in danger... I don't want any of those 3 to leave!

I loved JR.

I also thought Rob did really good. I liked David and Hope too.

I really don't like Elisabetta. I think a part of me is not giving her a chance because I feel she's there more for who she dated and not for something she did. I know it's stupid on my part, but it's how I feel.

Oh, and Kristen looked beautiful.

Is anyone re-watching? It's the re-cap show. I didn't realize how well Kristen did. God, Len is poopy, though. Scored 22- a little low, I think.

Just saw Nancy's for the first time- she was GOOD! Good footwork! Carrieann gave her a 6 (Len gave her 8- bruno 7) which seems ridiculous.
