DWTS Season 19: OMG This Is My Jam!


Tonight is week 2!  The theme for the week is the celebrities will dance to their favorite jams.  I have to say I'm already loving this season.  The show started with a fun group dance introducing the judges and celebrities.  I love the new intros this season.  Don't forget to vote because tomorrow somebody will go home.  Come back tomorrow to find out who!  Also tell me what your jam is?


RANDY COUTURE AND KARINA SMIRNOFF:
His jam is I Can't Get No Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones.  This week he danced the Cha Cha.  It was a bit rough.  Last week seemed more effortless.  He needs to work on a few things.  I still think he could be a contender.  His score was 28 of 40.

JANEL PARRISH AND VALENTIN CHMERKOVSKIY:
Her jam is Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen.  This week she danced the Foxtrot.  It was A LOT better than last week.  I liked that it wasn't super traditional.  It needed a bit more work but more controlled.  The judges thought it was near perfect but I wouldn't go that far.  I enjoyed it.  Her score was 34 of 40.

LEA THOMPSON AND ARTEM CHIGVINTSEV:
Her jam is Land Of A Thousand Dances by Wilson Pickett.  This week she danced the Jive.  I really like her.  I'm SO impressed by how well she does.  She has a dance background so I shouldn't be too shocked.  She can do both styles really well and most people can't.  Her score was 35 of 40.

MICHAEL WALTRIP AND EMMA SLATER:
His jam is Girls In Bikinis by Lee Brice.  This week he danced the Samba.  He was a mess but I was highly entertained.  I feel like it needed more Samba but it was fun.  He doesn't take himself too seriously but maybe he should.  His score was 24 of 40.

TAVIS SMILEY AND SHARNA BURGESS:
His jam is Boogie Wonderland by Earth, Wind & Fire.  This week he danced the Cha Cha.  I liked him better last week but I still enjoyed it.  It needed to be a lot cleaner.  You can tell he was just having fun.  I think he just had too much going on this week.  Hopefully next week he'll be back to his old self.  His score was 28 of 40.

ALFONSO RIBEIRO AND WITNEY CARSON:
His jam is Gettin' Jiggy Wit It by Will Smith.  This week he danced the Samba.  I just LOVE him!  Can he do anything wrong?  I never want him to stop!  He is just SO full of energy.  It needed work but I still loved it.  I'm interested to see how he does in ballroom.  His score was 32 of 40.

BETHANY MOTA AND DEREK HOUGH:
Her jam is All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor.  This week she danced the Foxtrot.  She was injured but you couldn't even tell!  I loved it!  It was just so classy but still modern.  The prop was freaking AMAZING!  I'm calling it the best of the night!  Her score was 33 of 40.

BETSEY JOHNSON AND TONY DOVOLANI:
Her jam is Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper.  This week she danced the Foxtrot.  Anything would be better than last week.  I had very low expectations.  It was actually pretty good!  She looked awesome and timeless.  I couldn't believe how well she did.  She was definitely the most improved by far.  Her score was 28 of 40.

ANTONIO SABATO JR. AND CHERYL BURKE:
His jam is Adorn by Miguel.  The week he danced the Rumba.  I was impressed because this dance requires a strong connection and they had it.  It was subtle which I liked.  He is really improving so maybe he has a chance.  His score was 31 of 40.

TOMMY CHONG AND PETA MURGATROYD:
His jam is Higher by Gloria Estefan.  This week he danced the Salsa.  Every time he dances I just smile.  He is also REALLY good.  He is just so much fun!  I am totally a fan to be honest.  Who doesn't love him?  His score was 28 of 40.

JONATHAN BENNETT AND ALLISON HOLKER:
His jam is Sing by Ed Sheeran.  This week he danced the Cha Cha.  I was highly disappointed.  I felt like his partner out danced him.  I also lacked content.  It was just jerky on the Cha Cha parts.  I'm sad because he can do better.  His score was 30 of 40.

SADIE ROBERTSON AND MARK BALLAS:
Her jam is She's Country by Jason Aldean.  This week she danced Jazz.  I love her!  She just comes out and does her thing.  She seems like a natural without ever dancing before.  This routine was edgier and I liked it.  Her score was 31 of 40.
