'I Might Be a Little in Love with Him': Dancing with the Stars' Sharna Burgess on Working with Deaf Model Nyle DiMarco

Originally posted 04/19/2016 08:55AM

Going into Switch-Up Week on Dancing with the Stars, pro dancer Sharna Burgess had one goal for her partner Nyle DiMarco.

"I told him at the beginning at the week that my goal was to make everyone cry," Burgess tells PEOPLE.

And she and the deaf America's Next Top Model winner succeeded Monday, though perhaps not in the way Burgess had planned.

"I meant the audience, not him, myself, [his usual partner Peta Murgatroyd] and [ANTM host] Tyra Banks," she says. "But I'll take it!"

Dancing with the Stars Recap: And the Winner Is ...

Originally posted 05/20/2015 01:25AM

After 10 weeks, 13 episodes and a two-hour finale highlighting them all, Dancing with the Stars season 20 is officially in the books, dance fans. And as usual, it was a season filled with countless incredible dances and a handful of painful ones, stars that made us roll our eyes and stars that made us cry, rewarding victories and astonishing exits, medical miracles and plenty of gratuitous Chmerkovskiy chest.

Before we get to the final fusion dances and the last, agonizing three minutes, let's take a look at that jam-packed first hour.

Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Finals

Originally posted 05/18/2015 11:35PM

It's finals night, Dancing with the Stars fans, and after the shocking elimination last week where one of the best remaining dancers was cut, many of you seemed to think tonight would be just a two couple race. But after watching each of them perform their two dances tonight, did any of you change your minds?

Let's hit the dance floor and break down each couple's repeated favorite dance and their final Freestyles; dances that I'm betting are going to get a lot of people in trouble on Tuesday for watching – over and over again – instead of working. (That's right, I’m looking at you.)

Dancing with the Stars Recap: Judges' Choice Results

Originally posted 05/12/2015 11:35PM

After Monday night's impressive and emotional semifinal performances, would it be such a terrible idea to just hand out four Mirrorballs and call everyone a winner? I don't think so. But unlike kindergarten soccer, someone has to win, and someone has to lose in this glittery game.

On Tuesday, one of the couples who earned some of the season's highest scores from the judges was cut, which I'm sure created an uproar from many armchair dance "experts" watching. But, to be fair, this show is as much about the popular vote as it is about dance skill, and, like it or not, sometimes it's not all about the dance. Unjust? I'll let you debate it in the comments, but for now, let's discuss what happened and find out which couples are left to battle it out for the season 20 golden Mirrorball Trophy next week.

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 …

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?
