So the challenge posed by the DWTS judges for this week was this: “show us something we’ve never seen before.” I have a problem with this for several reasons. 1) Len Goodman doesn’t like anything new or non-traditional. 2) This nice family show can’t do anything outside of the box! It’s not what their viewers want! 3) Bristol Palin.
Nevertheless, here we are at Week Three, which is Double Elimination week! The celebrities are in charge of costumes, choreography, music, everything. No matter what happens, it will be some show!

I wasn’t planning on blogging this season of Dancing with the Stars, but after last week, I feel like I owe it to the fabulousness that is going on. Not only is the dancing fantastic, every contestant is a fan favorite, making the competition that much more fierce. Unfortunately, Pamela Anderson left us last week, and her partner was Tristan McManus. Definitely gone too soon. But I still think she dances drunk, and it just could have gotten really, really ugly.
In case you missed last week, judges can award half-points this season, which should make the scoring pretty interesting. Other than that, the formula is pretty much the same, so lets get going!

It’s been way too long since I heard the drum beat of the DWTS theme music; way too long since I’ve watched to see if a celebrity was going to trip down those awful stairs, or if Brooke was going to say something narcissistic. The ballroom is back!
I’ve already told you, I think Jaleel White has this in the bag. But I was watching some rehearsal footage on Good Morning America this morning, and everyone looks pretty polished! It might be a tight race. I give my votes to the first person who dances a routine to Call Me, Maybe. Oh, and there’s Tristan. Ok, I give all my votes to him.
A few questions before we get going. Does Gavin DeGraw ever take off his hat? Why is Joey Fatone in the audience? It’s early to be pulling that card. Does anyone miss the Kardashians? No? Ok. Let’s get this season going!
