After what appeared to be a relatively fluid and graceful foxtrot last night on the Dancing With the Stars season premiere, Kirstie Alley received surprisingly tough scores from the judges.
Fortunately, she found something positive to focus on: Tom Bergeron’s face.Kirstie Alley – Dancing With the Stars Week 1
In what has to be the longest kiss in the history of Dancing With the Stars (which is saying something), Alley laid one on the host, who won a Primetime Emmy award the previous evening.
Skip ahead to the 4:30 mark above, and hope that voters reward Kirstie and MaksimMore >
Lauren Alaina tackled an iconic Elton John single last night, the track this singer wrote in honor of Princess Diana.
It was a challenge for the American Idol finalist, but one that may have turned her into a season 10 contender.
Giving the ballad a unique sound via her country twang, Alaina earned overflowing praise from the judges. Randy referred to the cover as “sensitive,” while Steven said it was perfect and J. Lo gushed: “You were gorgeous… That was it, baby. That was amazing.”
Do we have a new front runner?
The 12th season of Dancing With the Stars is underway, featuring what Tom Bergeron calls “the widest ranging collection of stars we’ve ever assembled.”
That’s code for saying “there’s no huge ‘get’ like Bristol Palin or Kate Gosselin this season, but get to know these folks and give them a chance! Please!”
We kid, but if that was what he meant, we obliged, and it was a pretty entertaining night overall. The surprise leader after this non-elimination round?
Yes, that’s really The Karate Kid! And he’s really in the lead!
Now 49, Ralph Macchio still has the moves. He had the technical meritMore >
Was it boring or did it result in roaring?
Of all the American Idol finalists who took to the stage last night, Haley Reinhart received the most mixed feedback from the judges.
Randy Jackson gave Haley props for going from Alicia Keys one week to LeAnn Rimes the next, but he also referred to her rendition of “Blue” as “sleepy” and “boring.” Steven Tyler, conversely, said you could hear the parts of America who loved country western music “roaring” over the performance.
Jennifer Lopez? She just spouted praise-filled nonsense, as always. Watch Reinhart yodel her way through an interestingMore >
She seemingly came out of nowhere, but Pia Toscano is here to stay.
The American Idol finalist, who received little air time prior to last week’s sterling rendition of “I’ll Stand By You,” was thrust to the forefront of the competition after earning the first standing ovation of the season from the judges for her semifinal performance.
“I felt like I never really showed all that I could do on the show, and I’m so happy that I did save it for when it counted,” Pia told MTV at last week’s top 13 party. “I’ve grown so much as a person and as a vocalist throughout this competition, and I’m soMore >
Todd Palin, husband of ex-Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin is being considered for a spot on the next season of Dancing With the Stars, it will be the 11th season for the popular celebrity dance show.
A source close to the show told E! Online:
“They want him big time,” adding, “They’d love Sarah, but they don’t think that will ever happen, so why not go for the dad.”
Bristol Palin, Todd’s daughter, took second place this past season, despite singer Brandy receiving perfect scores from the judges during the “final three” voting round. The single mother, considered one of the worst competitorsMore >
After his elimination from Dancing With the Stars last night, The Situation’s emotional situation is a little out of whack. The Jersey Shore star’s feelings (yes, he actually has them) are hurt, and he’s “upset,” his pro partner Karina Smirnoff says.
Sitch, who stormed off the set Monday after receiving harsh remarks from the judges for his tango, put on a good front as he was given the boot. But it hurts.
AWW: Who knew Sitch was such a softie?
“He put a lot on the line doing that dance, but it is what it is,” said Karina, adding that she thought the judges would appreciate the toughMore >
Talk about NOT making the best of a bad Situation.
After posting bottom-of-the-barrel scores on Dancing With the Stars, Mike Sorrentino was spotted sulking in the parking lot, smoking a cigarette and shaking his head as a friend tried to console him. Probably while saying “bro” a lot.
The judges called his tango “a mess” and “a rough ride.” Whatever it was, it netted Mike and Karina Smirnoff only 28 points out of 60. Follow the jump to watch:The Situation Dances Not Like a Star
“I don’t know what their deal is. I really don’t,” said Sitch. “I was upset. I stormed off because I tried soMore >
(HMG Celebrity News) - Bristol Palin was delighted to have her mom in the audience last night, but the rest of the crowd perhaps wasn’t so enthusiastic to see former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin? Just before host Tom Bergeron sat down to chat with the former vice presidential candidate on-camera, the studio audience was heard erupting into a loud chorus of boos. “Why is there booing?” asked former “Dirty Dancing” actress Jennifer Grey, who had just completed her routine and had just received her scores. The show then cut to Palin – who had a stunned look on her face – and her youngestMore >
