So there's a couple of people I'd like to see on DWTS in the near future (though it's probably not gonna happen), but I have no idea what pros I'd like to see them with. Do you have any ideas? The celebs are: Idina Menzel, Chrissy Teigen, Ian Somerhalder, Neil Patrick Harris, Michael Phelps and Tyra Banks. Your thoughts? Love your blog btw!
I’ve been saying Tyra and Michael for like 2 years now! But I would put Michael with Kym and Tyra with Dmitry (this is my dream). But with current pros, this is how I would pair those guys
Chrissy Teigen and Val Chmerkovskiy
Ian Somerhalder and Peta Murgatroyd
Idina Menzel and Derek Hough
Michael Phelps and Karina Smirnoff
Neil Patrick Harris and Sharna Burgess
Tyra Banks and old Maks? (there aren’t many tall dudes and Tyra is TALL, and I don’t want to see her with Tony. That would be a waste of a dancer)
I wouldn’t put all of these guys in the same season because several of the pros would be good for more than one of these celebs. I personally would never put Chrissy with Val because she’s too tall for him and we had that problem with Zendaya and Liz. But given how limited the options on the male side are and the fact that he did partner those two, I put her with him. I could see Michael with Karina or Cheryl. I could see Neil with Karina or Sharna. And I could see Ian with Sharna or Peta. I could only see Idina be with Derek. If old Maks were to come back, then I could see Tyra with him. But we really need some taller pros on the men’s side. Because we can’t keep pushing away all the young and tall female celebs. Actually the more I think about it, the more I realize that we need taller pros all around. Both male and female. Thanks for this, it really made me think!
I agree with what you said about Sabrina and Louis. If it had been up to you, with which pros (from any season) would you have paired the celebs from the mismatched couples?
I would have put Drew with Lacey, Gilles with Anna and Pam back with Damian, her original partner.
Which all-star pairings do you think were the particularly mismatched ones?
Gilles and Peta
Drew and Anna (at first)
Pam and Tristan
and don’t be mad but Sabrina and Louis slightly
Now let me explain the last one before I get jumped on. Sabrina has been one of my favorite dancers to ever be on this show. I think Louis did a great job with Sabrina that season. That rumba and waltz will always be remembered by many people for years to come. But Louis’s fanbase is not that strong and we know that Sabrina’s fanbase is super weak also. Had she and Mark been together, I do think they would have given Shawn and Derek and Apolo and Karina a run for their money (as I think they consistently turned in the best dances that season).
It's not a question, I just want to thank you for your answer about all-star season ! :) I wish they will do one in France but will think more about it (yeah I saw the underscoring, it made me laugh because it was obvious it was totally unfair!)
Yeah. It was a good idea that was executed poorly. If they do it in France, they should watch our season and learn what not to do. But you’re welcome!
I think that Karina and Vak are the best dancers on the show. Dereck is the Best choreographer but also a great dancer. However I also think that Sharna will be the next mix between Val, Dereck and Karina in terms of dancing and choreography, she's amazing. What do you thing ?
Personally I think they are all amazing dancers. That goes without question. But I have noticed that Val is not as great in the ballroom dances as he is in Latin. Because in ballroom, he’s great but in Latin, he is outstanding. I think Karina is overall the best dancer on the show. I do agree with you about the rest of it though.
Hello ! I didn't see the All-star season but I saw that you didn't like it ("everything was a mess"), can you please explain me why ? Actually I want to see en All-star season on DWTS FRance as well but I first want to know why it didn't work in the US (exepct the bad ratings). thank you so much. Ps: I love your blog ! I am not always agree with what you say but hey everyone has their own opinion, however you have very good feedbacks
Well it’s a long list but it started with the fact that they brought back both winners and non winners. That put every last one of the winners at a disadvantage. A lot of the partnerships were extremely mismatched. The schedule was incredibly confusing due to our election day and Hurricane Sandy. They threw out a lot of challenges that just made things more confusing. A lot of blatant underscoring of people like Apolo and Shawn and overscoring of others, like Gilles and Melissa toward the end. It was just a poorly planned season where they threw out a lot to see if it would stick, and nothing really did.
I am a little disappointed : I used to love Dereck on the show (for his dancing and choreography) but all the drama around him and the fact that it more amd more seems to be the show all about Dereck made me hate him (that's not the right world but let's say don't really like him). It's hard because now i'm too biased and I can't relly enjoy a dance from him (as much as you and Meryl and Maks for example)
What was the purpose of this?
And there you have it! My favorite dances from this season! Funny how most of them come from Disney week.
