TOM BERGERON! It's so great to see you again! Oh, hi, Brooke, you're there too.
Introductions: Notable for Gavin's fedora, Maks' open shirt and Martina looking more glam than I could have ever imagined. And now they tell us no elimination this week,...

Tom opens calling it the "hardest fought season ever." I'm not sure about that, but I will say that this is one with a lot of strong competitors, few loathsome personalities, and a satisfying final three.
It starts with the pro dancers (the "real" pro...

Tom's intro reminds us that last week it was "Wagner who got jacked." They tell us that it's "Rock Week" and the reanimated corpses of KISS are on the ballroom floor to get us pumped up with "Rock and Roll All Nite" - "Nite" is their spelling not mine. ...

Welcome to Week 2! Given that all the dancers last week were either good dancers or good sports or both, I'm particularly happy this is a season that didn't have a week 1 elimination. I'm looking forward to seeing everybody dance again.
Brooke's dress is...

They open by reminding us that next week is the semifinals — can't believe we're there already! It's been a quick season. After the staircase introductions, we find out there will be two dances for each couple tonight and a double elimination...

Apparently, the ballroom was "shellshocked" by last week's bottom two. The ballroom needs to toughen up. Tonight is Latin night. I hope that doesn't mean every other dance is a rumba — booooorrrrring. We start with Carlos Santana performing "Evil...

It's classical night, which means a whole lot of songs I'll recognize but not know the name of. Oh, look, it's an exaggeratedly expressive violinist and some chicks in Marie Antoinette garb. Never change, DWTS, never change. DUDES IN BREECHES AND...

We start with a recap of how great Week 1 was and how barely good last night was. And then it's a pro routine, some sort of jive. If you're keeping score at home, Maks is wearing an entirely unbuttoned and untucked shirt, Tony and Val or Tristan are...

Week 3 and tonight's the first night I'll lament not hearing the announcer say "Navratilova" in that special way. And as if that's not sad-making enough, it's "their most memorable year" night. Hope your heartstrings are screwed in tight because they're...

They start the show with a ridiculous graphic of Gavin in his rowboat on the dance floor, getting overwhelmed by a giant wave. Oh, silly dancing show, it's fun when you have a little bit of a big budget.
It's Motown night and one can only hope that they'...

Maksim Chmerkovskiy says he's hanging up his "Dancing With the Stars" shoes.
The widely proclaimed "bad boy of ballroom" (though he believes that moniker makes no sense) and most recent "DWTS" champ made the announcement Tuesday on "The View."
