DWTS Season 16 Premiere was Safe, if not Sizzling

The Season 16 premiere of DWTS was definitely “Ladies Night,” as the women set the standard for the weeks to come.

dwtsThe Season 16 premiere of DWTS was definitely “Ladies Night,” as the women set the standard for the weeks to come. While perhaps not as strong out of the gate as the women have been in the past, they have gave solid freshman performances and show the most potential for improvement.

As for the men? They meant well.

Dance of the Night- I’m ready to predict the winning team in week 1. Zendaya and Val. This 16-year-old Disney Channel star won the judges’ praise for a “superb debut,” and topped the leader board with 24 points. Watch and see if you agree:

New this season- The show has added a contemporary dance category, which will no doubt prove challenging for the stars as well as the pros. While there are no specific steps to master, contemporary dance often requires a certain level of athleticism, as well as the emotional expression to tell a story. It’s a good bet we will see some breakout performances in this style, later in the season. Fingers crossed!

One to watch- Kellie Pickler sparkled like a country music Tinker Bell in her first performance. Kellie has the advantage of natural talent, and being partnered with the winning-est star (and one of the best choreographers) on the show, Derek Hough. I’ll be very surprised if she doesn’t make it to the final three. Len said of her cha-cha-cha, “Yum, yum, pig’s bum.” Possibly a comment on the deliciousness of bacon, but I’m guessing it means the head judge is already a fan of Team Pickler.

Triple 4 Flashback- Perhaps Bruno said it best: “D.L. OMG.” It may take an act of God or a week of all-out effort to keep D.L. Hughley in the competition. His cha-cha-cha with partner Cheryl Burke was, in a word, sad, and earned only 12 points from the judges. The last time I remember someone getting three 4s was back in Season 2, when Master P replaced his son Lil’ Romeo at the last minute. I actually went back and watched it. The judges were nicer to Master P.

Over it- Last night we saw a man dressed as a bellhop carting Lisa Vanderpump’s dog Giggy on and off stage. Can we be done with the whole pets-as-an-accessory thing?

Quote of the Night- “We get most of our contestants when their judgment is impaired.” – Tom Bergeron

The stars will have another chance to dance on Monday.  The first elimination takes place next Tuesday.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
