DWTS Season 14, Semi-Finals

Tuesday, May 15, 201 I can’t believe we are down to the semi-finals already!  Last week my predictions were correct with a double elimination…Roshon Fegan and Melissa Gilbert left the show. Four stars will dance two dances, and only three will make it to the finale. I have no idea how I’m going to predict this week? William and Cheryl …

DWTS Season 14, Week 8

Tuesday, May 8, 2012   6 Stars remain and a double elimination is coming.  Last night had 2 dances, a Ballroom round and a trio round.  First the Ballroom round… Donald sold the Tango this week with strong movement and sharp transitions.  His frame has improved, but he still needs to pull up and be taller.  Donald’s footwork was good, …

DWTS Season 14, Week 7

Tuesday, May 1, 2012   This week is classical week.  As for last week, my predictions came true… Roshon and Gladys were the bottom two, with Gladys being eliminated.

DWTS Season 13 – Week #8

Tuesday, November 8, 2011   Well, I was wrong about Nancy Grace getting eliminated.  David Arquette didn’t deserve to go at this time because he was improving, and improving faster than Nancy or Hope. Oh well, can’t always account for audience voting. Up first is Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke doing a Quickstep to “Take On Me”.  His footwork was …
