Kevin Hart & Josh Gad Compare Their Theatrical Talents

21 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The 'Wedding Ringer' stars talk about working together back stage at 'DWTS'.

On Monday night's episode of Dancing With The Stars, comedian Kevin Hart was serving as a guest judge, sitting in for regular judge Len Goodman.

However, the bombastic funnyman wasn't content with just judging dancers, he needed to get some dancing done of his own. And to help, he brought in Broadway star – and voice of Frozen's Olaf – Josh Gad to do a tuxedo-clad hand jive.

However, before the show, Hart and Gad, who co-star in the upcoming romantic comedy The Wedding Ringer, stopped to talk to Et's Kevin Frazier about the amount of rehearsal time their routine took to master, and soon the conversation drifted towards Hart demonstrating his musical talents.

Specifically, he sang a few lines from a play he supposedly starred in called "Pistol Pete". The »

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Janel Parrish & Bethany Mota Earn Perfect 10s; Randy Couture Eliminated

29 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars returned Monday with Movie Night, in which actor Kevin Hart took over Len Goodman’s seat on the judges’ panel. Not only were the celebrities dancing movie-themed dances, but they were on high alert about whether or not they would be the second one going home from last Monday's routines.

Dancing with the Stars Recap

After finding out that they were one of the pairs in jeopardy, Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff took on the season’s first Paso Doble. Going with a Rocky theme, Karina choreographed an intense routine. Unfortunately, Randy’s biggest cheers came when he merely struck a pose – not when he was clumsily attempting to execute the dance moves. Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli found little to like about the performance. Scores: 7+7+6+6=26

Alfonso Riberio, eager to prove he can master ballroom dancing, did a quickstep, which was oddly given an Austin Powers theme. »

Dancing With the Stars Week 3 Results: Did The Right Couple Go Home?

29 September 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

After two not-exactly-surprising celebrity heave-hos kicked off Season 19 in ho-hum fashion, Week 3 of Dancing With the Stars found our remaining 11 celebs getting high… on Hollywood.

In tonight’s “Movie Night” extravaganza, the ballroom was transformed using classic themes from the silver screen – with very mixed results – and also showcased the delightfully welcome guffaws (if not dancing expertise) of this week’s guest judge, comedian Kevin Hart. (Apparently poor Len Goodman already needs a break from Julianne’s yammering. I kid! I kid!)

The Quack Pack is back! Sadie Robertson's Dancing With the Stars journey was very nearly cut short during the week two live results show on Sept. 23, but thanks to a reprieve from the voters (and a not-too-shabby score of 31 out of 40 from the judges) she and partner Mark Ballas lived to dance another day. The Duck Dynasty star's second performance — a jazz routine to Jason Aldean's "She's Country" — didn't go over so well with head judge Len Goodman, but Carrie Ann Inaba, [...] »

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Tavis Smiley Is Latest Celebrity Eliminated

23 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars returned Tuesday night to announce who would be the next couple eliminated from the celebrity dancing show.

Dancing With The Stars Recap

In jeopardy this week were Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater, Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas and Tavis Smiley and Sharna Burgess, the last of whom ended up getting eliminated. The talk show host, who had performed a cha cha to Earth, Wind and Fire’s “Boogie Wonderland,” was hindered throughout the week by book signings and other commitments that took away from his rehearsal time.

Though Tavis was admittedly disappointed to have to say goodbye to the out-of-character experience so soon, he said he has no regrets. “I do not live a life of regret, the art of dance I absolutely love,” he said.

On the results show, Janel Parish and Val Chmerkovkiy were selected by the Twitterverse for the encore performance, as Len Goodman »

Who Blamed a Lack of Rehearsal Time for His DWTS Ouster?

23 September 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Tavis Smiley has a bone to pick with the producers of Dancing with the Stars. The talk-show host, who on Tuesday became the second celebrity to get booted from the competition, said there was no way he could fit in rehearsal time with his latest book tour. And the producers knew it, he insisted. "Producers shouldn't sign up people who can't commit the time when they are told up front that the person is going to be on a book tour," Smiley told People immediately after the show. "We gave them the entire book-tour schedule in advance! This is not about sour grapes. »

DWTS: See Which Stars 'Killed It' on Monday's Show

The celebrities got to pick their tunes on Monday's edition of Dancing with the Stars, so the numbers were as varied as a bikini song samba to a Cyndi Lauper-inspired foxtrot. Here were the scores: Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff. It seemed like an awfully big challenge - dancing the cha-cha to "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" - but a uniform-clad Randy appeared to have a ball gyrating his hips to the crazy beat. "What a great way to start the night," said Judge Julianne Hough. "I think we have a new hip action hero," added Bruno Tonioli. Score: »

22 September 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Brendan O'Carroll has revealed that he was approached to take part in the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special as his character Mrs Brown.

The Mrs Brown's Boys creator told Sunday Morning Live that the BBC had suggested that Mrs Brown should dance with head judge Len Goodman, but he turned the offer down.

O'Carroll said: "The idea had been mooted it would be nice in the Christmas special that just one dance with Len and Mrs Brown would be nice. Who would be lead?

"It's nice to have a hybrid and a crossover between Mrs Brown and something else, but the truth of it is Strictly Come Dancing doesn't need me or Mrs Brown.

"It's a great entity in its own right. I have to protect [Mrs. Brown] from Len."

O'Carroll, whose wife Jennifer Gibney is appearing in this year's Strictly line-up, said that he was very proud of her decision »

How to Dance like a Star, according to Len Goodman

22 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

After 40 years of teaching dance, Len Goodman has lost a little bit of patience — especially considering the Dancing with the Stars judge has been going back and forth between the U.S. and U.K. for the original British version of the show. But the jetlag didn’t stop Goodman from spending one afternoon in Hollywood teaching a small group of reporters how to move like a star.

Last week, I, along with a few other unsuspecting journalists were given a salsa lesson with the help of some of the show’s professional dancers, including Keo Motsepe, who has a »

‘Dancing With the Stars’ Contestant Lolo Jones ‘Embarrassed,’ ‘Broken’ After Elimination

Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones was “embarrassed” and “broken” after being eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars” on Tuesday night. The athlete took to Facebook to vent about feeling “rejected by the public.” “When you go so many times rejected in public you put walls up. When I was dancing last night and messed up I had flashbacks of the three Olympics and that people constantly tease me about,” Jones wrote. “I thought, ‘Oh no here it comes again. People are going to ridicule me.’ I'm so tired of feeling embarrassed.” Also read: ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Ep Talks Show's Future: Less Len Goodman, »
