It’s switch up week!! I didn’t vote much…mainly because I think Derek will do amazing regardless of who he’s with. And I don’t believe our votes actually count for anything. Sad but true. Them’s my thoughts on the matter.
Anyway, we’ll be trying to figure out the couples and the dances and the songs as the week goes on. If you hear or read something, please remember that we need a LINK. Also remember that we have twitter – if you see it and the post hasn’t been updated 20 minutes later, by all means, let us know. Original pro is in parenthesis.
ETA: The sound you are hearing is Heidi screaming in rage from the golf course she’s currently on. And me swearing under my breath at my desk. I don’t believe for one minute that Val got Bindi fair and square, and that Mark really got Paula fair and square. Also hearing a bit of vacillation on who got Alek – and implications that who got him may have changed between last night and this morning. And the bulk of these pairings just bore me to tears. For more discussion, you can check out my switch-up prediction post. -Court-
ETA2: Hearing that the pairs will be officially announced on GMA tomorrow morning. No, I don’t know what time (although I’m guessing around 8:15 AM EST, if they do what they usually do); no, I don’t know if any of the couples will be there (though I doubt it). We will be live blogging it – most likely over at my switch-up post. -Court-
ETA3: No announcement on GMA (surprise, surprise) but People did just post the list.
ETA4: A couple dances…no offense to whoever posted that Alek & Emma have rumba in the comments, but it almost seems too good to be true since that’s what I was tweeting @DancingABC all last week 😛 -Court-
ETA5: Updated with Louis & Tamar’s dance…
ETA6: According to Derek’s blog, Bindi has cha-cha and Alexa has tango. Guess if Derek had to miss out on doing one dance with Bindi, he’d pick cha-cha or samba, which he has said in the past are his two least favorite dances. -Court-
ETA7: Vogue here. The official press release from ABC has been posted. The rest of the dances are filled in below.
ETA8: I GOTS TWO SONGS, HEY HEY HEY HEY!!! And I’m already swooning over Alek & Emma’s…even if it’s not “Holding Out for A Hero”… 😉 -Court-
ETA9: So…we have Alexa and Derek’s song, but since it’s Derek’s, I put it over at PDH. 😉
Alexa and Derek (Mark) – Tango (See PureDerekhough)
Hayes and Allison (Emma) – Viennese Waltz
