    Official Ballroom Song ID Thread

    I imagine this will be a tough one, but does anyone want to take a crack at what song this is?

    DWTS season 22

    Meh. Out of the night, I really enjoyed Ginger's freestyle, and the choreography for Nyle's freestyle was cool. Paige's salsa was more interesting to me than her freestyle. I think all in all, each person had one good dance and one meh dance. No one has really grabbed me this season. I liked...

    DWTS season 22

    I guess now is as good a time as any to lament the general decline of quality across ALL dances on DWTS. I stumbled on this fan-made ranking of the best jives ever on DWTS (which is totally subjective and I don't quite agree with the rankings), and it was SO obvious how many of the dances (even...

    DWTS season 22

    Whew, been away for a while, but here are my impressions: Antonio and Sharna: I mean, who REALLY knows what goes on behind closed doors, but I think Antonio has learned from the embarrassment of being called out on his work ethic and and has turned himself around. I didn't love the vwaltz...

    DWTS Season 21

    I wanted Nick to win all along (I have NO idea where people get the idea that he's too intense or unapproachable...I thought he always seemed charming and genuine, and especially gracious in all of his post-dance interviews. His graciousness reminded me a lot of Rumer's on-camera poise) That...

    Agreed!! So very much! I enjoy Bruno when he has real suggestions to contribute

    DWTS Season 21

    Personally, I'm not inclined to buy too much into the "producers are conspiring to rig the show" theories. Sure, it's tv and they want to put on a good show, but I think it's more that the judges have their opinions at this point, and their own biases, and their own way they want to see things...

    Corky and Shirley Ballas "Somewhere in Time"

    DON'T I KNOW IT :( I will keep searching!

    DWTS Season 21

    Agreed...that clearly wasn't intended to be a lift. Derek just lifted her a little too high and Bindi couldn't reach the floor anymore. The rule is good to prevent flagrant abuse, but I don't think this situation is what the rule was intended for. So if I was CAI I would have given that point...

    DWTS Season 21

    I agree, I thought it looked like he was trying to catch his balance. I think Bruno has taken up the mantle of "technique police" since Len's departure...NOT COMPLAINING about that!! It's a refreshing look into Bruno's actual knowledge and skillset.

    Corky and Shirley Ballas "Somewhere in Time"

    So a few nights ago on DWTS, Mark Ballas was talking about one of his favorite routines that his parents ever performed-- one of the last that they danced together before their divorce, a rumba to the song "Somewhere in Time" by John Barry On the show, they played a short clip of the...

    DWTS Season 21

    Skipping week 1, moving on to week 2! Nick and Sharna--poor Nick stumbled a little, but the jive quality (IMO) was better than either of the PenaVegas from last week. (Eh, Carlos's was pretty good but Alexa looked a little unsteady. I could say the same thing about her salsa this week. She is...

    DWTS Season 20

    WOW. I think this was the best episode I've seen in a long time. I loved pretty much every moment.

    DWTS Season 20

    Am I the only one who thought ValenRue's jive was super cute? It was bubbly, well acted, and the technique was decent. However, I know most celebs have trouble with it but I LOVE to see kicks and flicks with the knees tight together, or proper bounce in the jive basic as opposed to the "stepping...

    DWTS Season 20

    Ugh, I just made the giant mistake of popping over to puredwts to see what they had to say...the comments there are nasty! Especially those by the mods!
