Dancing with the Stars Recap: Judges' Choice Night

Originally posted 05/12/2015 12:40AM

It's semifinals week, Dancing with the Stars fans, which this season means more than the usual ramped up chest exposure and ramped up Hough exposure; season 20 means ramped up judge exposure! But really, why has it taken 20 seasons to integrate the judges into the dance to make them prove they're worthy?

I've spent 10 years Googling Carrie Ann Inaba each season to remember what it is that qualifies her to critique ballroom dancing – or any dancing – and 10 years discovering that being a fly girl is apparently all it takes. (That's 20 seasons of face palms for those of you keeping score.)

Tonight's semifinals was about more than technique, skill, and judges stepping on toes (metaphoric and literal) however, it was a show full of surprises, emotion, and a lot of tissues ...

Dancing with the Stars Recap: America's Choice Results Are Revealed

Originally posted 05/05/2015 10:20PM

Eight weeks into Dancing with the Stars, six stars remained. But while they turned up the heat Monday night, two were sent home in tonight's double elimination.

But who would it be? As we learned with last week's shocker of a send-off that found Willow Shields packing, high scores from the table can only do so much and at-home voters can make all the difference.

Dancing with the Stars Recap: America's Choice Night

Originally posted 05/05/2015 01:20PM

Our apologies for the delayed Dancing with the Stars recap – hopefully it's just given you, America, more time to think of suggestions for your favorite dancing duos such as "lots of candles" and "y'all gonna be kissing?" That's not to discredit America's suggestions for hairstyles, costumes, music and dance style, which shaped the first of each couple's two dances tonight; giving the people what they wanted on Monday pulled out some of the best dances of the season, resulting in one perfect score, one near-perfect score and a finally happy (and still bare-chested) Bachelor.

And on top of making these beautiful people dance like the waltzing Barbies you never had, the second dances of the evening were trios! Sure, for Nastia Liukin that's just another day in partner Derek Hough's neighborhood – if you're going to bogart Nastia's post-dance hugs, Derek, please at least bring precious Sasha Farber into your loving embrace, as well – but I think Sharna Burgess said it best for the rest of the night's trios: "With all those extra limbs around, there're just more possibilities."

It was double the dances in preparation for a double elimination on Tuesday night. So hopefully America served its valued stars and pros well …

Originally posted 04/28/2015 12:20AM

A staple in the Dancing with the Stars franchise, "Eras Night," returned Monday, and the stars danced routines inspired by a specific decade. The favorites (Nastia Liukin, Rumer Willis, Riker Lynch and Willow Shields) continued to please the judges, but who won immunity this week – and who was (shockingly!) sent home?
