A number of intriguing questions lingered going into Week 10 – beyond the usual, “Whaaaa? The semi-finals are already here?” – of Dancing With the Stars: Would a rumored groin injury be the downfall of one of Season 19’s shiniest stars, Alfonso Ribeiro? Could 76-year-old Tommy Chong continue to defy the odds, the judges and his own ballroom limitations to escape elimination yet again? Might the remaining trio of fierce and fabulous females — Sadie Robertson, Janel Parrish, and Bethany Mota – reach next week’s finale?
With the Mirrorball trophy so tantalizingly close, tonight’s live show required our celebs to perform two dances, »
The final five couples took to the stage for this week's Dancing with the Stars semi-finals, and while each duo had impressive performances, one couple had to be sent home. This week Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd took their final bows on the dance floor after performing two dances to different types of music - one plugged and the other unplugged - for this week's theme. "I've just showed that old stoners can perform when they need to!" joked Chong during his final send-off. Here's how the couples fared: Round OneSadie Robertson and Mark Ballas. After having her confidence shaken last week, »

Here are my performance rankings for the best and worst dances from the ninth week of Dancing with the Stars season 19, airing Monday, November 10 at 8pm on ABC. The evening featured the six remaining stars and their professional partners doing two individual dances, one chosen by America and the other with an extra professional dancer in the Trio Challenge.

With the prospect of one last, all-but-certain elimination looming — after Michael Waltrip’s merciful exit last week, perpetually low-scoring charmer Tommy Chong was sure to be next, right? — Week 9 of Dancing With the Stars saw the final six couples performing both “America’s Choice” and trio dances. Meanwhile, visions of the Mirrorball Trophy — and more immediately, a spot in next week’s semifinals — danced in the remaining stars’ heads.
But while tonight’s live show tipped its hat to loyal DWTS fans (whose social-media votes throughout the past week dictated each celeb’s song, dance styles, wardrobe and hair), the »
Going with great news - rather than just a great performance - is the best way to start off Dancing with the Stars. To that end, Monday's installment killed it with the bulletin that oldie but goodie Tommy Chong made it for another week! But Chong getting to stay meant that a (high-scoring) celebrity had to go. So it was a surprise when Lea Thompson - who looked stunning while performing some of her best dances - was named as the next hoofer to leave the ballroom. "I just feel really great. I feel strong and I'm anxious to get »

Here are my performance rankings for the best and worst dances from the eighth week of Dancing with the Stars season 19, Halloween Night, airing Monday, November 3 at 8pm on ABC. The evening featured the seven remaining stars and their professional partners doing individual dances as famous Dynamic Duos from history and fiction. The judges? scores come from, in order, Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli. Also, check out my recap of the episode. »
It was a Dynamic Duos theme under the mirror ball on Dancing with the Stars Monday but the night's Tarzan - better known as Michael Waltrip - couldn’t swing enough votes to keep him and his Jane inside the fringe jungle. The racecar driver became the latest celebrity to leave the ABC show. "It was a chance to do something that was more emotional than it was physical, to get to experience the wonderful cast, to get to know Emma's heart and who she is as a person," Waltrip told host Tom Bergeron. "I'm happy I got to be »

Dancing With The Stars Recap
First up on Monday night was Tommy Chong, who took on a quickstep with pro partner Peta Murgatroyd. Rehearsals reveal that Tommy’s age is finally becoming a factor, as he has having some difficulty learning two dances. However, his performance in the ballroom dance was more than capable and the judges were all impressed. Scores: 7+7+7+7=28
Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev had the Argentine tango this week. Fresh off some disappointing scores, Lea felt some added pressure to nail her routine this week, which she did. Julianne Hough noted that she is a precise dancer who is always hitting her moves. However, the judges were looking to see a bit more chemistry and personality in the routine. Scores: 8+8+9+9=34
Derek Hough was duly impressed by »
How's this for scary: Judge Len Goodman started the night in a casket! It was an appropriate opening because the returning judge had to help sound the death knell for Antonio Sabato Jr. No matter how many times the soap star went shirtless under the mirror ball this season, he and partner Cheryl Burke just couldn't keep the judges, or viewers, happy. "I danced with one of the best in the world," Sabato Jr. said. "It's all about the fans and that's why I am here." Here's how the rest of the night played out: Sabato Jr. and Burke. The »

Dancing with the Stars returned Monday night with the final nine couples dancing to songs sung by – and/or liked by – recording artist Pitbull. Also, filling in for Erin Andrews, who is working the World Series, was DWTS alum Leah Remini.
Dancing with the Stars Recap
Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker were the first pair to hit the dance floor, taking on a jazz number. Allison choreographed a Men in Black-themed routine complete with some hip-hop moves that Jonathan picked up with ease. Overall, it was the best choreography from Holker and Jonathan’s best dancing. Scores: 8+8+8+8=32
The reunited Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy danced a traditional samba. The routine was both fun and passionate, with Val showing off his abs. Once again, Janel proved she’s a natural on the dance floor. Among the judges, it was Pitbull that was left the most disappointed, while Carrie Ann Inaba »
In a night of top notch performances, with Jonathan Bennett and Michael Waltrip delivering their best dances yet, it was the always-entertaining Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson who really won the evening.
While they might have had the dance to beat, it wasn't the highlight of the evening! Check out the best, worst and weirdest moments from this week's Dancing With The Stars.
Jonathan Bennett was told he was in jeopardy, and then immediately had to get up and dance to Pitbull's Men In Black 3 song "Back In Time." So, in the vein of Men in Black, they donned government issue suits and Jonathan delivered his best performance ever. Sure, the set designers might have confused Men In Black with The Matrix, but it was pretty spectacular.

It’s Week 6 of Dancing With the Stars, which historically means it’s high time for a shocking, teeth-gnashing, out-of-nowhere elimination. But with Mirrorball also-rans like Michael Waltrip, Tommy Chong and even Jonathan Bennett still kickin’ it on the ballroom floor, what’s a drama-hungry viewer to do?
How about giving venerable host Tom Bergeron a sassy, sexy — and potentially unstable – new sidekick? That’s right, Monday’s live show showcased another “switch up” of sorts – last week’s partner swapping debacle wasn’t enough? — as the ballroom welcomed a glittering new guest co-host, Leah Remini!

Pitbull was in the house to perform and guest judge on a night that Dancing with the Stars promised lots of "muy caliente" moments - that is, until the judges (and America) threw cold water on the latest ousted celebrity. Though he earned an impressive 32 out of 40 for his jazz dance, Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett was the newest star to leave the dance floor Monday. "Here's the thing," explained Bennett. "I came here to do this show, to have fun, to have a really great experience and to bring life back into my life, and that’s what I did. »

International superstar Pitbull returns to the ballroom and for the first time joins Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli as a guest judge on October 20’s Dancing with the Stars. The multi-platinum rapper previously performed “Echa Palla” on the DWTS Season 16 finale in May 2013. Pitbull will kick-off the night with a steamy performance of his hit single Fireball — a hot song with a sexy Latin beat that begs to be danced to. The song’s music video is full of great dance moves, and I expect that the DWTS pros should put on a performance that … Continue reading →

Janel Parrish is best known for playing Mona Vanderwaal on the TV drama Pretty Little Liars. She's been paired with pro Val Chmerkovskiy for season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, and she'll be blogging for People about her experience on the hit ABC show. Dancing to a Jessie J song knowing that she would be a guest judge definitely put the pressure on last week! I'm a huge fan and I wanted to make sure that we did that song justice. I think she was a little shocked seeing the song she wrote for her mom being taken in a racy way, »
