Dancing With the Stars is really on a rollercoaster this season, from the highs of Disney week to the (pretty much) lows of Switch-Up Week. Obviously, we couldn’t expect to have the same chemistry between the celebrities and their new partners after only working together for 4 days, but I was hoping for a bit more than what we got.
1. Nyle DiMarco and Sharna Burgess danced the Viennese waltz to near perfection (if you believe the paddles the judges held up, not the scores they submitted to production). It was ethereal and fluid, aided by the fog machine and Sharna’s angel-like gown. It still amazes me how Nyle can dance so beautifully without hearing the music, but I’ve come to realize this man is just amazing.
2. Pairing Jodie Sweetin and Val Chmerkovskiy together was genius, as they both have similar intensity and drive to win this competition. I was happy to see Jodie bounce back from her disastrous performance last week, to close the show with this great Paso Doble.
3. I know that Doug Flutie is not the greatest dancer, but I love how he continues to strive and improve. Although some dancers may have gotten better scores than Doug, not many other people achieved their best scores on Switch-Up week. For that reason, Doug’s is one of my favorite dances of the week. It may not have had the difficult of content of some other dances, but I thought he looked his sharpest and most accurate, and that made me happy.
Did Ya Catch That? 1. One of our favorite style stars from The Bachelor recaps, Becca Tilley, was in the audience Monday night!
2. Is Ginger Zee’s husband, Ben, lobbying for a spot next season? The man’s shimmy tells me yes.
3. These hosts are seriously quick on their feet. Who else could come up with lines like this?
Dressing With the Stars
This week, I loved Paige VanZant’s costume, worn during her amazing Rumba with Sasha Farber.
1. This dress, from Asos, has a similar embellished bodice, matched with a fairy tale tulle bottom.
2. This dress, from LuLu’s, gives you an asymmetrical hemline, similar to Paige’s, but without the glitz and glamour (if that’s not your thing). Plus, its a very affordable $52!
3. Although this rentable dress, designed by Badgley Mischka, is a maxi style, I think the detailed bodice is so gorgeous. I couldn’t not include it.
That’s all I’ve got this week. Any thoughts on Switch-Up Week? Are you glad no one went home? Let me know in the comments!
