Dancing With The Stars – Season 24

Dancing With The Stars kicks off its 24th season on March 20th, 2017, sticking with its formula of two seasons a year (one in March and one in September, which has been the case since Season 3). There are 12 couples this season, down from 13 in Season 23, and as usual, the cast list was released on Good Morning America, which is also on ABC. There are two ways to vote: through the judges, and there is also a public vote, which is done through a toll-free number, along with texting and social media. The pair that receives the low score among the judges, along with the audience voting, will be eliminated each week until there is only one pair left standing. The winning duo gets the Mirror Ball Trophy, along with a cash prize, which is never released. The second-place and third-place teams also receive a cash prize, again, which is not released.

Show Recap – Dancing With The Stars

This week’s elimination on Dancing With The Stars was a massive shock, and there were also two team dances, split between the women and the men.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Last week was Disney Night, with Erika and Gleb getting their walking papers despite the low score of the week going to David and Lindsay.

What Happened This Week

This week’s theme was Boy Bands vs. Girl Groups, and there were two freestyle dances. The women (Simone, Nancy, Normani and Heather with their partners) won with a 34 as they did a routine to “My Boyfriend’s Back” by the Chiffons, “No Scrubs” by TLC and “BO$$” by Fifth Harmony. The men (Bonner, Rashad, David, Nick and their partners) weren’t far behind as they got a 33 for their routine to “Dancing Machine” by The Jackson 5, “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” by New Kids On The Block and “Best Song Ever” by One Direction.

For the pairs, the high score of the week went to Heather and Maks, who returned from injury as they got a perfect score of 40 for their rumba to “Waterfalls” by TLC. Next was Normani and Val, who got a 38 for their salsa to “When I Grow Up” by the Pussycat Dolls, then Rashad and Emma had a 37 for their tango to “Reach Out (I’ll Be There)” by the Four Tops. At the other end, Nick and Peta had a 28 for their jive to “”Fun, Fun, Fun” by the Beach Boys, David and Lindsay got a 29 for their Argentine tango to “I Want You Back” by NSYNC, and Bonner and Sharna had a 30 for their rumba to “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys.

Nancy and Artem were the last pair to be called safe, even though they got a 33, and in the biggest surprise in a long time on this show, Heather and Maks were sent home.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

The fan vote seems to be what hurt Heather, but this is a big problem with Dancing With The Stars: you can get a perfect score and still get voted off. The judges’ vote should weigh more than the fan vote to begin with, but that’s another conversation. It especially stings as Heather has danced the last four weeks with Alan, then Maks comes back, they get a perfect score and still get eliminated. If anything, this should show the rest of the field that it might not even matter how well (or badly) you do on Dancing With The Stars, you could still end up going home.

Previous Recaps

Show Recap – Dancing With The Stars

One more couple was eliminated this week on Dancing With The Stars, where the theme was Disney Night, an annual favorite among DWTS fans.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Last week’s theme was Most Memorable Year Night, and Mr. T and Kym would be the third couple eliminated from the competition.

What Happened This Week

The high couple of the week was Normani and Val, who scored a blistering 39 for their paso doble to “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You” by Donny Osmond from Mulan. Simone and Sasha weren’t far behind with a 38 for their contemporary routine to “How Far I’ll Go” by Auli’i Cravalho from Moana, while Nancy and Artem scored a 36 for their jazz routine to “That’s How You Know” by Amy Adams from Enchanted.

The low couple was David and Lindsay, who scored a 29 for their jive routine to “Ride” by ZZ Top from Cars 3. Just ahead of them are Bonner and Sharna, who picked up a 30 for their tango to “When Can I See You Again” by Owl City from Wreck-It Ralph, and then there were a pair of couples at 32. First was Rashad and Emma, who did a foxtrot to “Evermore” by Josh Groban from Beauty and the Beast, and then Erika and Gleb for their Viennese waltz to “Unforgettable” by Sia from Finding Dory.

The last two couples to be called safe were Nick and Peta, who got a 34 for their jazz dance to “I’ve Got No Strings” by Dickie Jones from Pinocchio, and Erika and Gleb. Nick and Peta survived the week, and it was Erika and Gleb who were eliminated, which goes to show on Dancing With The Stars, the couple with the lowest score doesn’t always go home. 

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

Simone and Sasha are back on top as they have an average of 33.4, while Normani and Val are next with an average of 32.8. Rashad and Emma had a down week and they’re third now at 32.4, while Heather and Alan (Maks is still out with an injury) come in at 32.0. Right now, Simone and Sasha are probably the most consistent couple, but they need to find another gear because Normani and Val, and even Rashad and Emma, might be better when they dance their best.

Bonner and Sharna have the low average at 27.4, while Nick and Peta are next at 27.8. These two must have a good performance next week, but again, you never know who will go home on Dancing With The Stars until it actually happens.

Bet on Dancing with the Stars at BetDSI

The next pair to go on Dancing With The Stars is one that has been on the chopping block for a couple weeks now. Eventually, the other shoe had to drop and that happened on Monday. It was an easy result to see as most of the couples scored pretty high except for the duo that was bounced.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Last week’s theme was Vegas Night, with Charo and Keo becoming the second couple to be eliminated last week, while Normani and Val had the highest score of the week with a 34.

What Happened This Week

This week’s theme was Most Memorable Year Night, and all but one couple scored at least 30. The high score of the week went to Rashad and Emma, who got a whopping 39 for their contemporary routine to “Unconditionally” by Katy Perry, while Simone and Sasha came in second with a 36 for their Viennese waltz to “Good Good Father” by Chris Tomlin. Heather and Alan (who continued to replace an injured Maks) came in third with a 35 for their cha-cha-cha to “Shut Up And Dance” by Walk The Moon.

Two couples turned up with a 30, the first being Nick and Peta, who did a rumba routine to “Shape Of You” by Ed Sheeran, while Erika and Gleb joined them with a cha-cha-cha to “Express Yourself” by Madonna. The bottom pair posted a 28 and that was Mr. T and Kym, who waltzed to “Amazing Grace” by Ray Chew. It came as no surprise that they were in the bottom two, along with Erika and Gleb, but Mr. T and Kym would be eliminated in a move that some thought could have come last week, at the very least.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

Three couples have picked up the highest score in four weeks of Dancing With The Stars so far this season, and Rashad and Emma did for the second time this week. Their average of 32.5 is just ahead of Simone and Sasha, who sit at 32.3. The most impressive couple still might be Heather and Alan, who replaced Maks after the first episode and Heather might do well just to stick with him for the rest of the season as the two have great chemistry.

Nick and Peta might be the next to go with a low average of 26.3, while Bonner and Sharna are just ahead at 26.8. Erika and Gleb aren’t much farther ahead at 27.0, so these three pairs need to raise the game in order to stay on Dancing With The Stars, which will have their Disney Night theme next week.

Another couple was eliminated on Dancing With The Stars this week, and once again, it was a couple that has been danger from the start.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

Chris and Witney were the first couple to go as they were eliminated last week.

What Happened This Week

This week’s theme was Vegas Night, and the high couple was Normani and Val, who picked up a 34 as they did a foxtrot to “Big Spender” by Shirley Bassey. Next was Nancy and Artem, who got a 33 for their samba to “Shake Your Bon-Bon” by Ricky Martin, while they were joined on 33 by Heather and Alan (once again, subbing in for an injured Maks), who did a tango routine to “Toxic” by Britney Spears. Not far behind at 32 were Simone and Sasha, who danced a quickstep to “Viva Las Vegas” by Elvis Presley.

At the other end were three couples who got a 24, first, Mr. T and Kym, who did a foxtrot to “Ain’t That A Kick To The Head” by Robbie Williams, while Bonner and Sharna danced a Charleston to “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” by Fergie, Q-Tip and GoonRock, with Charo and Keo joining them after their foxtrot to “Chapel Of Love” by the Dixie Cups.

It was Nick and Peta who were the last couple to be called safe after they got a 26 to their tango to “Poker Face” by Lady Gaga, but in the end, it was Charo and Keo who would be the second couple to get their walking papers.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

Normani and Val share the top spot with Simone and Sasha as both couples have an average score of 31.0, while Rashad and Emma join Heather and Maks/Alan with an average score of 30.3. Nancy and Artem sit at 29.7, while David and Linsday are at 28.7, and early in the competition, it seems like there will be some jostling at the top of the charts.

Then you have Mr. T and Kym, who are in trouble with an average of 22.0, which is actually lower than Charo and Keo’s average of 23.3. Nick and Peta come in at 25.0, along with Bonner and Sharna (Erika and Gleb are right in the middle at 26.0. Mr. T and Kym look like they’ll be the next ones to go unless they come up with a huge effort next week, but remember, the lowest score doesn’t always go home on Dancing With The Stars.

It was an entertaining start to the Dancing with the Stars, including a fiery police officer-themed performance. The first couple was eliminated on Dancing with the Stars this week, and it was to no one’s surprise who it was.

What Happened Heading Into This Week

All of the couples had their first dance of the season, but no one was eliminated.

What Happened This Week

The couple would have their second dance this week, and at the top of the list, there were two couples that were tied with a 32. Normani and Val did a cha-cha-cha to “Give Me Your Love” by Sigala featuring John Newman and Nile Rodgers, and they were joined by Rashad and Emma, who scored their 32 for a Viennese waltz to “Suffer” by Charlie Puth. Next was Heather and Alan (Bersten, who is a troupe member subbing in for an injured Maksim this week), and they picked up a 30 for a jive routine to “Grown” by Little Mic. Two couples got a 29 to round out the top group, starting with Bonner and Sharna, who did a Viennese waltz to “Unlove You” by Jennifer Nettles, while Simone and Sasha tied them with their cha-cha-cha to “Burnin’ Up” by Jessie J featuring 2 Chainz.

At the bottom, there were two couples tied with a 22 as Mr. T and Kym did a paso doble to “Eye Of The Tiger” by Survivor, and Chris and Witney did a jazz dance to “Hey Ya!” by Outkast. Just ahead of them were a pair of 25s, staring with Charo and Keo, who did their own paso doble to Charo’s “Espana cani”, while Nick and Peta did a foxtrot to “Love Me Now” by John Legend. Charo and Keo were the last couple to be called safe, but it was Chris and Witney who would be the first to head to the exit door this season on Dancing With The Stars.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

Rashad and Emma have overtaken Simone and Sasha for the early lead as the former has an average of 31.5, and the latter couple is one point behind them. But Normani and Val aren’t far behind at 29.5, and Heather and Maks sit at 28.0. Heather and Alan might have had the best performance of the night, given that Alan was a stand-in for Maksim (who has a calf injury, but should be fine).

Mr. T and Kym are in trouble as they’re the low score now at 21.0, while Charo and Keo are at 23.0. These two pairs have to raise their game to avoid elimination next week, and it should be a battle to stay in on Dancing With The Stars.

The 24th season of Dancing With The Stars kicked off with a two-hour episode. There are a lot of intriguing athletes and former actors on the show, but it was the athletes that were off to a hot start

What Happened This Week

The competition got underway immediately as all 12 pairs did one dance. Olympian gold medalist Simone Biles and Sasha Farber were the high couple of the night as they got a 32 from the judges for their tango to “Untouchable” by Tritonal and Cash Cash featuring JHart. Next in line was NFL running back Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater as they got a 31 for their cha-cha-cha to “24K Magic” by Bruno Mars. A group of three pairs got scores of 28, notably MLB player David Ross and Lindsay Arnold for their quickstep to Steve Goodman’s “Go Cubs Go”, which was notable as Ross won the World Series with the Chicago Cubs, then retired.

At the other end of the spectrum, actor Chris Kattan and Witney Carson didn’t get off to a good start at all as they got a 17 for their cha-cha-cha to “What Is Love” by Haddaway (which was used by Kattan in his Saturday Night Live sketches with Will Farrell). Another actor struggled as Mr. T and Kym Johnson got a 20, also for a cha-cha-cha as they did theirs to “The A-Team Theme”; of course, Mr. T made his name on The A-Team in the 1980s.

Who Looks In Good Position To Win It All

Of course, it’s still very early in the season, but it shouldn’t be a surprise that Simone burst out of the gate. Her Olympic teammate in gymnastics, Laurie Hernandez, basically ran away with Dancing With The Stars last season and another Olympic gymnast, Shawn Johnson, won Season 8. It makes sense that a high-level gymnast would be great in a show as this, and Simone should definitely be considered one of the favorites. Rashad also had a great start and his background has a good pedigree in Dancing With The Stars as well as Emmitt Smith won in Season 3, Hines Ward won in Season 12 and Donald Driver won in Season 14.

Chris is in big trouble as it seemed as he and Witney were way off the pace, and they were fortunate that no one was eliminated on the first night because it would have likely been them. They need to step up in a major way, or hope that Mr. T and Kym struggle even worse next week on Dancing With The Stars. One of these two couples should be the favorites to exit first.

The Season 23 winner was Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez, who became the youngest winner in the history of Dancing With The Stars at 16 years old. She won with Val Chmerkovskiy, who won for the second time and the first since Season 20, while the runners-up were IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess, who only missed two weeks due to a knee injury that looked really bad. However, Hernandez and Chmerkovskiy were the best couple of the season almost every week, and it was a well-deserved victory.

Hernandez became the ninth athlete to win on Dancing With The Stars, and the second gymnast after Shawn Johnson in Season 8 (Johnson was also the youngest winner prior to Hernandez). Fourteen winners have come from the world of entertainment, either a singer or an actor/actress.
