Sailor Brinkley-Cook was better than ever on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ so how the hell was she eliminated? [Watch]

Sailor Brinkley-Cook was better than ever on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ so how the hell was she eliminated? [Watch]
After the controversial Mirror Ball win for Bobby Bones last fall, “Dancing with the Stars” tweaked its voting system going into season 28. But maybe it’s time to overhaul the overhaul. In week six of the competition Sailor Brinkley-Cook got her highest scores of the season, and actually tied for the highest scores anyone has gotten this season so far. Then she was eliminated in ninth place. Watch her jive above. Then scroll down to let us know what you thought of that shocking outcome in our poll below.

Brinkley-Cook was a last-minute substitution on the show after her mom, Christie Brinkley, was injured a few days before the season began. In her clip package this week she admitted to feeling insecure as the daughter of the famous model, and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy tried to get her out of her shell by having them practice their jive in public.

James Van Der Beek’s ‘bum was out of control’ during his ‘Dancing with the Stars’ samba [Watch]

James Van Der Beek’s ‘bum was out of control’ during his ‘Dancing with the Stars’ samba [Watch]
Tutti Frutti, what a booty!” exclaimed Len Goodman after James Van Der Beek performed a samba during week six of “Dancing with the Stars.” Goodman added that the actor’s “bum was out of control” during his performance with pro partner Emma Slater. And if you can get that kind of reaction out of grumpy Goodman, you know you’ve got something special. Watch Van Derk Beek’s routine above.

Van Der Beek showed us with his “Movie Night” rumba that he could handle the hip action of a Latin dance, but the samba has claimed many victims on the dance floor, including Karamo Brown and Lauren Alaina, who struggled with the style on “Disney Night,” and even Hannah Brown, who also got a samba this week but struggled more with the timing of her country-Latin hybrid performance. Brown ended up with respectable straight 8s, but that put her second

‘Dancing With The Stars’ October 21, 2019 Eliminated Sailor Brinkley & Val (Recap)

Hey, "Dancing With The Stars" fans. Tonight, October 21, 2019, a brand new results/performances show did indeed air. The judges: Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba were, of course, on hand to serve up their critiques and compliments. Tonight's performances kicked off with Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber dancing a Quickstep routine. Afterwards, Len told Ally, "It was first class with good frame, but a few foot faults. I like that the dances are longer this season." Bruno said, "It was so bright, I needed sunglasses, but you lost synchronicity because the pace of the routine was so fast." Carrie Ann said, "I loved the body contact just like Bruno did, but I agree that there were some sync problems." Carrie Ann gave Ally an 8 score, Len a 9, Bruno an 8 for a total of 25 points out of a possible 30 points Kate Flannery and Pasha Pashkov hit the dance floor

‘Dancing with the Stars’ recap: Who survived week 6, and who danced their way out of the competition? [Updating Live Blog]
All nine celebrities were safe on “Dancing with the Stars” at the end of “Disney Night,” but you can only delay the executioner for so long on the competition series. So who performed well enough to survive week 6, and whose footwork got them the boot? Find out below in our live blog with all the minute-by-minute developments as they happen.

Singer Ally Brooke got the first nines of the season last week when she performed a contemporary routine inspired by “Beauty and the Beast,” but this week she and actor Kel Mitchell were both reportedly given fast-paced quicksteps to perform.

Meanwhile, actress Kate Flannery and White House mouthpiece Sean Spicer drew the Viennese waltz. Model Sailor Brinkley-Cook danced a jive routine.

Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten’s next ‘Dancing with the Stars’ routine will be ‘country-esque’

Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten’s next ‘Dancing with the Stars’ routine will be ‘country-esque’
There’s no theme on Week 6 of “Dancing with the Stars,” but Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten‘s samba will have one: country.

“I can tell you that there is no theme next Monday, but we’re going to be country-esque, if that’s a word.” Bersten revealed in his “Entertainment Tonight” blog.

A country samba sounds… interesting? Country isn’t really the first thing you think of when it comes to a samba, but it can work. They likely got a country song — and one of the few songs ABC has teased for next week is Carrie Underwood‘s “Southbound,” so it all fits.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ Season 28: Get ready for lots of hip action with these Week 6 dances
We called it: There was no elimination on “Dancing with the Stars'” Disney Night. You guys are so predictable. The remaining nine couples will hit the hardwood (again) in Week 6, which is theme-less.

Sailor Brinkley-Cook and Val Chmerkovskiy: jazz

Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber: quickstep

Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten: samba

‘Dancing with the Stars’ odds: James Van Der Beek is still out front for the Mirror Ball Trophy, but Ally Brooke is gaining

‘Dancing with the Stars’ odds: James Van Der Beek is still out front for the Mirror Ball Trophy, but Ally Brooke is gaining
The season 28 premiere of “Dancing with the Stars” was the first and only night so far when actor James Van Der Beek finished on top of the judges’ leaderboard. But despite that, he’s still clinging to the top spot in our odds for who will win the Mirror Ball Trophy. It’s crowded at the top, though, as singer Ally Brooke puts pressure on the top contenders.

Our odds are based on the combined predictions of “DWTS” fans who make their forecasts every week here in our predictions center. As of this writing Van Der Beek gets leading odds of 15/8. This follows “Disney Night,” when Van Der Beek didn’t get the top score but came pretty darn close: he scored two 9s and an 8, giving him a total of 26, which was enough to tie him with Kel Mitchell for second place.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ poll results: Judges got it Wrong on ‘Disney Night,’ so who really had the best dance?

‘Dancing with the Stars’ poll results: Judges got it Wrong on ‘Disney Night,’ so who really had the best dance?
As much as “Dancing with the Stars” fans like to boo the judges for their mean critiques from time to time, their scores are usually vindicated in our polls, where their highest scoring dance tends to be our readers’ favorite too. Not this time. On “Disney Night” the judges thought Ally Brooke‘s contemporary routine with pro partner Sasha Farber was the best in show, but our readers begged to differ. Scroll down to see our complete poll results at the bottom of this post.

The Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown gave the real best performance of the night, according to a plurality of respondents. She received well over a third of the vote (38%). She and her pro partner Alan Bersten performed a foxtrot to “A Whole New World” from “Aladdin,” but really it was only Len Goodman who found fault with the routine. Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli gave them 9s,

Jenna Johnson hopes to get ‘validation’ from the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ judges for Karamo soon

Jenna Johnson hopes to get ‘validation’ from the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ judges for Karamo soon
After delivering his best performance so far last week on “Dancing with the Stars,” Karamo had a bit of a setback on Disney Night with his samba, though he still earned 7s across the board. But with 9s being thrown out for the first time and Lamar Odom gone, that 21 put the “Queer Eye” star second from the bottom, behind only Sean Spicer. His partner, Jenna Johnson, is hoping to turn it around soon with some “validation” from the judges.

“I think we haven’t gotten away yet with a ‘That was fabulous comment,’ so I’m really looking forward to getting that and I will keep pushing Karamo. I’m hoping soon for both of our sanities that we will get that validation of our partnership soon,” Johnson wrote in her “People” blog. “For Karamo individually, he is working so hard, and he is putting his heart and soul into this.

World’s best boss: Steve Carell tells Kate Flannery she’s going to ‘take the whole thing’ on ‘Dancing with the Stars’

World’s best boss: Steve Carell tells Kate Flannery she’s going to ‘take the whole thing’ on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
A bunch of Kate Flannery‘s old “Office”-mates have attended “Dancing with the Stars” tapings this season, but her old Dunder Mifflin boss, Steve Carell, hasn’t had a chance to yet. That doesn’t mean he’s not paying attention, though, as the actor relayed a video message to Flannery via “Entertainment Tonight.”

“You’re doing fantastically well. I completely support you,” Carell told her (watch below). “And you’re gonna take it. You’re gonna take the whole thing. That’s all.”

Flannery, whom Carell calls “one of the nicest people,” is nearly reduced to tears as she watched the clip after Monday’s show with her partner Pasha Pashkov. “Oh my God. Steve Carell. I’m gonna cry,” she said. “He’s the greatest.” Pashkov, meanwhile, was in disbelief he was watching a message from Michael Scott. “What?!” he exclaimed.

Should ‘Dancing with the Stars’ ban contemporary dances? [Poll]

Should ‘Dancing with the Stars’ ban contemporary dances? [Poll]
On Monday night’s “Dancing with the Stars,” Fifth Harmony alum Ally Brooke received the highest score of the season so far for “Disney Night.” She performed a contemporary routine to the Oscar-winning title song from “Beauty and the Beast.” But did a contemporary dance give her an unfair advantage? That style gets high scores so commonly that I switched to her in my predictions as soon as I found out what she was dancing. And I was right. Should contemporary dances be banned from the show?

Brooke got 9s across the board from judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli. Those were the first 9s anyone received this season and the only straight 9s — stingy Goodman didn’t take out his 9 paddle for any other celeb this week. To be clear, I don’t think Brooke did anything wrong by dancing it; celebs don’t get to choose their styles,

That wasn’t the first time Carrie Ann Inaba fell off her chair on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ — relive her other mishap

That wasn’t the first time Carrie Ann Inaba fell off her chair on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ — relive her other mishap
Carrie Ann Inaba took a hilarious tumble out of her seat on Monday’s “Dancing with the Stars” (she’s Ok), but any “Dancing” fan knows that was definitely not her first chair-induced accident on the show.

Seven years ago, during the the all-stars outing on Season 15, Inaba could hardly contain herself after Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd‘s sultry rumba to Whitney Houston‘s “I Will Always Love You.” “Let the baby-making begin!” she shouted before tilting sideways and sliding off her chair (watch above). Like on Monday’s show, she laughed off the faux pas while Marini and Tom Bergeron rushed to her aid.

“When you said, ‘Let the baby-making begin,’ I didn’t think you’d get in position,” the always quick-witted Bergeron joked.

‘Dancing with the Stars” Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten sound off on that 7 from Len: ‘Grumpy ol’ Len’
Disney Night saw the first 9s of the season, as four pairs received at least one on Monday’s “Dancing with the Stars.” One of those couples was Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten, but the high of their double 9s from Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli was tempered by a head-scratching 7 from Len Goodman.

“Grumpy ol’ Len. Even on Disney Night, huh?” Bersten quipped to “Entertainment Tonight.”

The resident curmudgeon said he enjoyed the couple’s lovely foxtrot to “A Whole New World” from “Aladdin” but wanted more holds. That’s fine if you want to penalize them for that, but an 8 would’ve sufficed. A 7 is kind of ridiculous when you compare the quality of their dance to Karamo and Jenna Johnson‘s serviceable samba, which earned straight 7s. But Bersten said they’re going to take it all in stride.

“It’s all right. We’re gonna

‘Dancing with the Stars’ deja vu: James Van Der Beek and Riker Lynch both did ‘Pirate’ pasos, but whose was better? [Poll]

‘Dancing with the Stars’ deja vu: James Van Der Beek and Riker Lynch both did ‘Pirate’ pasos, but whose was better? [Poll]
Dancing with the Stars” has been doing “Disney Night” for a while now to appease ABC’s corporate overlords. They’ve been doing it for so long that we’ve now seen two dancers pay tribute to the same movie in the same dance style to the very same piece of music. James Van Der Beek closed the show with a “Pirates of the Caribbean” paso doble. Riker Lynch also did a “Pirates” paso on “Disney Night” in season 20 back in the spring of 2015. So whose was better? Watch Van Der Beek’s performance above and Lynch’s performance below. Then vote in our poll.

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba thought Van Der Beek’s performance was “insane” and told him, “This was your dance, truly.” Len Goodman thought he was “dramatic” and “strong,” though there were moments when it could have been sharper. Bruno Tonioli called it “grand spectacle,” a “powerful performance,

‘Dancing with the Stars’: Hannah Brown got a baffling score from Disney villain Len Goodman: What was he thinking? [Watch]

‘Dancing with the Stars’: Hannah Brown got a baffling score from Disney villain Len Goodman: What was he thinking? [Watch]
The Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown has emerged as one of the front-runners to win the Mirror Ball Trophy this season “Dancing with the Stars,” and on “Disney Night” she gave a performance befitting a champion — but not according to judge Len Goodman. He gave her one of the season’s most baffling scores so far. Watch her performance above, and let us know what you thought by voting in our poll at the bottom of this post.

Brown dance a foxtrot to “A Whole New World” from “Aladdin.” I for one thought it was the strongest routine of the night — lots of pure choreography performed with sure-footed elegance and grace. Bruno Tonioli thought she was “radiant,” though he admitted he couldn’t really make out all of her footwork through the fog that was meant to represent the clouds underneath their magic carpet ride. Carrie Ann Inaba called the performance “stunning.

Ally Brooke gave a ‘Beauty’ of a performance on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ for ‘Disney Night’ [Watch]

Ally Brooke gave a ‘Beauty’ of a performance on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ for ‘Disney Night’ [Watch]
Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke lucked out on “Dancing with the Stars” during “Disney Night.” She got to be the first celeb this season to perform a contemporary dance, and she was the only celeb who drew that dance style that night. That style tends to draw higher scores because there’s an emphasis on emotional expression and judges are looking for fewer specific technical details. No need to worry about unauthorized lift calls from Carrie Ann Inaba or complaints about “messing about” from Len Goodman. But while it’s an advantageous style, you’ve still got to perform it well. Do you think Brooke pulled it off? Watch her performance above.

Brooke and her pro partner Sasha Farber performed to the title song from “Beauty and the Beast,” which ironically played during a ballroom dance in the original animated film. But Bruno Tonioli thought Brooke’s performance was “one

‘Dancing With The Stars’ October 14, 2019 Eliminated No One (Recap)

Hey, "Dancing With The Stars" fans. Tonight, October 14, 2019, a brand new performances/results show did indeed air. This week was Disney night. That means all the couples danced to corny Disney songs. All the judges: Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba were, of course, on hand. There were no guest judges this week. So, we were back down to just three judges tonight. The performances kicked off with Sailor Brinkley-Cook and Val Chmerkovskiy dancing a Viennese Waltz. Afterwards,Len Goodman told Sailor, "It was light and fluffy like a souffle. I would have liked to have seen more dancing in hold. You'll definitely be back next week." Bruno said, "You are the ideal Disney princess, and you acted it well too. You apply yourself to your dances. Your spins have much improved." Carrie Ann said, "You got in character so well. That was an amazing dance." Carrie Ann gave Sailor an 8 score,

‘Dancing with the Stars’ recap: Who brought Mouse House magic to ‘Disney Night,’ and who (if anyone) went home? [Updating Live Blog]
Another season of “Dancing with the Stars” means another celebration of cross-promotional synergy. I’m talking about “Disney Night,” of course. ABC is one of the many, many, many media companies owned by the Mouse House, which gave the celebs on “DWTS” plenty of options when it comes to paying tribute to classic entertainment. So whose performances were full of Disney magic, and who (if anyone) magically disappeared at the end of the night? Find out below in our live blog with all the minute-by-minute developments as they happen.

Disney recently acquired 20th Century Fox, which means the company now owns a wide range of entertainment from “Avatar” to “The X-Files” to “The Simpsons” in addition to their previous acquisitions like “Star Wars” and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But this “Disney Night” focused on the animated films and musicals that are most closely identified with the company, including “Aladdin,” “The Lion King,

Hannah Brown takes back the lead from James Van Der Beek in our ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Mirror Ball odds

Hannah Brown takes back the lead from James Van Der Beek in our ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Mirror Ball odds
It looks like it might be one of those seasons on “Dancing with the Stars.” Sometimes the front-runner is obvious from the outset, but this year the momentum has shifted every single week. “The Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown was the front-runner for the Mirror Ball Trophy. Then actor James Van Der Beek overtook her. Now Brown is back on top. But it’s still early yet. With nine competitors left in the ballroom, the advantage could flip right back.

Our official Mirror Ball Trophy predictions are based on the combined forecasts of “DWTS” fans who place their bets here in our predictions center every week. As of this writing Brown has the edge with leading odds of 9/5. That follows another strong week for the reality TV personality during which she took judge Carrie Ann Inaba‘s criticism of her cheerleader-like performances to heart and delivered a lean, mean paso doble

‘Dancing with the Stars’ judges declared a 4-way tie, but fans are decisive: Hannah Brown was the best on Monday night [Poll Results]
Week four of “Dancing with the Stars” was too close to call for the judges. Four celebs tied for the top spot on the leaderboard: Lauren Alaina, Ally Brooke, Hannah Brown and Kel Mitchell. That’s almost half of the 10 contestants who performed. Our readers were somewhat divided too when we asked them in our poll who had the best night. But they ultimately gave “Bachelorette” star Brown their final rose. Scroll down to see our complete poll results.

Brown was the best of the night according to 30% of “DWTS” fans who voted in our poll. She had been the judges’ favorite before, coming out on top in week two with the season’s first straight 8s. But she wasn’t quite as strong during “Movie Night” in the third week of the competition: judge Carrie Ann Inaba said her rumba was too much like a cheerleader routine.
