Stars Take Two Steps Forward in Week 5 of DWTS

Published

on

dwtsAt the end of a somber and sobering day, I found myself smiling by the end of the opening group number. The stars and pros delivered a fun latin routine, which was a nice departure from the normal walking-down-the-stairs bit at the top of the show.

This week the show introduced “Len’s Side by Side” challenge, which paired each team with another pro couple. Each dance began with the pro couple, then both couples danced side by side, then the stars and their partners finished the number alone. The stars all clearly benefitted from having the extra instruction during rehearsals, and it showed in stronger performances across the board.

Aly has been solid so far, but her Samba had a little something extra last night. She seemed to be having a lot of fun, which always resonates with the audience. And Sean finally found his stride in an almost-elegant quick step. His posture was impeccable, and footwork greatly improved.

Dance of the Night: Zendaya and Val’s slithery, sharp Argentine Tango brought in the first 10s of the season, and rightly so. Take a look:

Swing and a miss: Bruno and Len always seem to be trying to “out-cute” each other with their colorful critiques, often relayed as amusing and somewhat oddball similes. Last night Len was unintentionally cryptic, telling Sean, “Last week you were a statue, and this week you’re a pigeon.” Huh? At first blush, this could be interpreted as a reference to bird poop, but Len went on to explain he thought this was Sean’s best dance of the competition so far. Pigeon=flying. Ummmm, if you say so, Len.

Base hit: Okay, not his sport per se, but Jacoby really upped his game with a crowd-pleasing jive that gave him a chance to shine. While not technically perfect (flexed feet instead of pointed toes in his flicks), Jacoby scored points for showmanship when he did two splits and a un-assisted leapfrog over his partner Karina, while she stood straight up. He received his best score to date, a 26.

Who’s in trouble: I don’t want to jinx myself by naming names this week, but it rhymes with “gee, hell.”

High score: Zendaya and Val, 29
Low scores: Andy and Sharna/ D.L. and Cheryl, 18

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

Published

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.
