Dancing With The Stars – bah buh bah bah – dunna nuh!

11 Apr

Ok, out of about 13 seasons this is the first time I have EVER watched Dancing With The Stars.

Because this is the first time I’ve become interested in this show, I started youtubing past shows.  I wanted to share several of my favorite routines that I found.

But first.. I have a bone to pick.  I get really annoyed with reality television when celebrities on these competition shows like Dancing With The Stars get sent home and they cry. (Yea, I’m talking to you Sherri Shepherd.) Through their tears they say “being on this show has realized my biggest dream.”  Um. Really?  Seriously? Maybe I’m just envious because I wish I was rich and famous and could spend time learning to dance.. la la la. I sound jealous and it’s because I am …. No offense to Sherri, but I don’t think that being on DWTS is your biggest dream.  I don’t believe you.  Although, I can relate.  When I was a freshman in high school and the Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding scandal broke before the Lillehammer Olympics, I begged my mom for weeks for me to start training to be a figure skater.  I was certain I could cut it. I’m glad she let me down easy because she reminded me later of how I broke my teacher’s arm on a school field trip to the Ice Rink (I was Ice Skating and I couldn’t stop. Don’t judge me! I yelled out to her to move… it wasn’t on purpose!  I swear!) I realized then and there, that  some dreams need to stay just as they are .. dreams.

Now, here are some of my favorite performances.  JR Martinez’s dance hit home and made me cry (everything makes me cry).

For old time sake, here is Nancy Kerrigan’s 94 Olympic performance.  She didn’t win the gold.  Oksana Baiul did.  I feel Nancy was robbed.  Eh, you win some, you lose some.
