DWTS Season 25: Finals Week

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Tue, Nov 21, 2017 @ 14:11 PM

Oh my, oh my! What incredible dancing for the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Finale! The costumes? They were generally well done, with a few that were ‘ho hum’. I will be omitting my critique of the season’s last final show, as #1 – I want to just enjoy the spectacle, and #2 – traditionally, the last dance presented by the contestants has shown lack-luster costuming – generally just a rehash of past costumes. You all, can be the judge of these final costumes presented tonight!

DWTS Season 25: Semi-Finals Week

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Tue, Nov 14, 2017 @ 15:11 PM

Remember that “Dancing with the Stars” IS a popularity contest, when you lament the contestants that went home this week! I keep reminding myself. Yes, I really like Drew, and yes – he is NOT a better dancer than Victoria, but oh my, all those Property Brothers’ fans!...That said, on with my costume critique.

DWTS Season 25 Week 8 Costume Critique

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Tue, Nov 07, 2017 @ 15:11 PM

Double dancing from all the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ contestants this week. The usual solos and then the “Trio Round” where past celebrity stars were brought back to accompany each contestant pair. I admit that I thought the costuming was a little lack-luster this week…maybe because of all the costumes that were needed?

DWTS Season 25 Week 6 'A Night at the Movies' Costume Critique

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Tue, Oct 24, 2017 @ 15:10 PM

Now that we have fewer contestants, we are seeing more Pro/Troupe routines on ‘Dancing with the Stars’. I’ll continue to stick to my Celebrity critiques, and generally ignore the additional costumes worn by the Pro/Troupe dancers.

DWTS Season 25 Week 5 'Disney Night' Costume Critique

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 @ 14:10 PM

This week’s ‘Dancing with the Stars!’ theme was a celebration of ‘Disney Through the Ages’, and it WAS magical. With all the news media’s attention on politics and the Harvey Weinstein story, it was so refreshing to focus on this treasure trove of Disney memories, from back in the late 1920’s to the upcoming release of “Coco”, touching on their many famous movies along the way.

DWTS Season 25 Week 4 'Most Memorable Year' Costume Critique

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Tue, Oct 10, 2017 @ 20:10 PM

When was YOUR ‘Most Memorable Year’? We listened to many emotional stories this week and viewed many memorable dances. I personally enjoy learning more about the contestants in addition to critiquing their costumes. And since it IS a ‘popularity contest’ I don’t get mad when someone is voted off…I may feel a bit bad for them, especially when I get emotionally involved…but that’s another story!

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Wed, Sep 27, 2017 @ 16:09 PM

Monday night was Ballroom Night on Week 2 of ‘Dancing with the Stars’, with Latin Night on Tuesday. I noticed that I wasn’t finishing my costume notes by the time the dance routine was over. That was my first clue that the routines were really short!

DWTS Silver Anniversary Season 25 Week 1 Costume Critique

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Wed, Sep 20, 2017 @ 15:09 PM

For the Silver Anniversary of DWTS, it was so good to see all my ‘old friends’ again, and meet some new ‘friends’! …And I like the sound of Debbie Plus Alan!!! (To my family and friends, I AM Debbie…professionally I’m Deborah.) ‘Dancing with the Stars’ always present contestants (‘stars’?) with interesting stories, so in addition to the costumes and dancing, we learn a little bit about everyone…it’s what makes this reality show so intriguing, at least to me.
