Dancing with the Stars – Season 16 – Week 8 Results

Welcome to the seventh live result show of the 16th season of Dancing with the Stars. Tonight, we have special guest performances by Jason Derulo and Emeli Sande. We could also see another Macy’s Stars Of Dance Performance and/or an AT&T Spotlight Performance. And when all the dancing is complee, the seventh couple that had the lowest combined total of audience support and judge scores will be eliminated.

Our poll here at MJ’s clearly believes the time is up for Sean & Peta. They lead the votes for elmination by a large amount.

So, who is likely to get the boot? Yes, I agree that it is going to be Sean. In fact, tonight feels pretty predictable to me in that sense. Ingo (the next likely candidate for elimination) saved himself last night with two decent performances. They weren’t anything spectacular but they were so much better than what Sean did. Unfortunately, both these men continue to give forgettable performances overall. They must know they are just fodder right now and that the real competition begins as soon as they exit.

Will Ingo & Kym be in jeopary or even the bottom two? Probably. Are we in for another Jacoby like “shock” jeopardy placement? Perhaps. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if the show placed someone like Kellie or Aly in jeopardy just to rally the fans. It has happened before, worked, and creates good buzz. Last night’s theme was pretty good, with some trio performances being fantastic. Of course, I need to say the following…

Hey judges, I am still fuming at the 8’s for Jacoby and especially the 7 for Kellie. WTF? But I’ll stop complaining about that now and see where the chips have fallen. Let’s start our usual segment by segment recap. :D

Segment 1
The show opens with members of the troupe and a few pros doing a sexy routine. The women are in evening gowns and the men are in white shirts. It looks like a wedding reception that went into overdrive with actual good dancing. LOL. Fun!

A quick look at last night’s show.

Time for the first results of the night…
Going to the semi-finals is… Igno & Kym – Yes, Sean is toast.
In Jeopardy… Kellie & Derek. – LOLZ at the manufactured drama here.

I haven’t a clue why they revealed Ingo to be safe this early. Doesn’t that take away all the suspense?

Segment 2
Zendaya’s trio dance from last night (with Val and Gleb) gets the encore tonight, naturally. Yeah, just as good as last night. Gleb still looks hot. The sky is blue. :)

And now, a look back at how the night went for Zendaya & Val and Jacoby & Karina with some unseen footage.
Going to the semi-finals is… Zendaya & Val SHOCKING! No.
In Jeopardy… Jacoby & Karina More manufactured drama.

Segment 3
Kellie is backstage with Brooke. More footage of the judges fighting from last night. Derek says he actually talked to Len and put into an extra paso step but it didn’t work. Kellie says that everyone likes their coffee different and Derek was happy with what they did.

Jason Derulo is out to perform “The Other Side.” This is Jason’s first performance since his accident. Is it? I thought he performed on last year’s American Idol finale. This is a pretty catchy song. I don’t think he is really singing with all the dancing that is going on. No DWTS dancers, just Jason and his dancers.

A backstage package shows which dances the celebs want. LOL. Kellie can’t pronounce flamenco.

Kellie & Derek got Flamenco.
Ingo & Kym got Charleston.
Zendaya & Val got Hip Hop. – Of course, she got exactly what she wanted.
Sean & Peta got Disco.
Aly & Mark got Afro Jazz.
Jacoby & Karina got Lindy Hop.

Segment 4
Oops. Gleb made a mistake during the dance coming back from the commercial. He missed Emma’s hand.

Okay. Major filler time. A camera crew follows around Ingo’s son, Peanut, as he visits the DWTS studio. Okay, a pretty hysterical kid. Is his name really Peanut?

Brooke is backstage. Aly believes she is peaking at just the right time. Sean believes he is going home but if Jesus (yes, Jesus) grants him another week, he will work his tail off.

Time for “Macy’s Stars Of Dance” performance. Derek and Jamie (alumn from SYTYCD) are out to perform. Wow, this is cool. They are dancing on the floor, walls, and ceiling. I won’t go into how this is actually done because it takes away from the wow factor. Suffice it to say, regardless of the special effects involved, it is really fun to watch.

Segment 5
Emeli Sande is out to perform “Next To Me.” Dmitry (nice to see him) and Cheryl are out to dance. This is such an awesome song. Note for you AI fans- this song will be performed tomorrow night. But I won’t spoil by whom. :P Make sure to join MJ for that!

And now, a look back at how the night went for Zendaya & Val and Jacoby & Karina with some unseen footage.
Going to the semi-finals is… Aly & Mark.
In Jeopardy… Sean & Peta.

I imagine Kellie will be announced safe first and it will come down to Sean & Jacoby with obvious results.

Segment 6
And…final results of the night.
The next couple safe and going to the semi-finals is… Kellie & Derek.

OOO. Not necessarily the bottom two (DUH, because Ingo probably was), these are the final 2 couples.

And leaving us tonight, in week 8 is…

Sean & Peta So shocking!

Sean has enjoyed the show very much. A nice piece of footage airs. Peta is proud. Sean is happy with the journey.
The MOST obvious result show in the history of this franchise.

Ingo, watch out next week! Just saying.

And now, we move on to next week’s semi-finals. I hope you guys join me next Monday for the fun. :D

    Ha. You totally called it. There is no way Kellie is in any jeopardy. They are just trying to scare her fanbase a little bit. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ingo was actual B2 and they are just not going to announce real B2 tonight.

    As long as Sean goes I’m happy.

  • supersonic

    This show is so stupid and predictable. Everyone knew they were going to put Kellie and Derek “in jeopardy”. That was obvious after last night.

  • Franky

    Agreed. They definitely want to increase Kellie votes going into next week. It was still dumb though to announce Ingo’s safety. Is there any question at all who leaves in 45 minutes? LOL

  • http://twitter.com/bentley1530 Bentley1530

    Wow is Jason even pretending to be singing ?

  • http://twitter.com/dam744 Damien Roberts

    Could be in for the first truly shocking moment of the season?

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    This is stupid. DWTS, just put the real B2 down there and call it a night. Why the hell are they wasting their time having Jacoby down there, much less Kellie? These “shocking” results are not gonna raise up the ratings. AT ALL! Pointless…

  • supersonic

    Of course Zendaya got hip-hop. She tweeted that she wanted it and her little army fell right in step and got it for her.

    And Sean really needs to go. Seriously? Bringing Jesus into it?

  • http://twitter.com/bentley1530 Bentley1530

    The walking on air dance did nothing for me. I think it is because the camera was set so far back from the dancers.

  • http://twitter.com/raya4 raya

    While I think having hip hop is going to majorly backfire on them, the way it was set up it was one couple to a dance. Obviously she would have gotten whatever she asked for, but that means another couple would have wound up with hip hop. I realize one of the other couples is leaving tonight, but I can’t see any other celeb dealing with hip hop. Karina almost had a meltdown last season over hip hop. They should have left that dance option off the table entirely.

  • http://twitter.com/desireechick Kesia Monteith

    Please post Emeli Sande’s performance. I just missed it :(

  • Franky

    MJ will definitely have the video up!

  • http://twitter.com/sara1411A sara

    Aly & Mark got what they asked for too!!

  • http://twitter.com/raya4 raya

    They all got what they asked for. Derek asked for flamenco. Mark for afrojazz. Kym for charleston and etc.

  • Miss Blue

    I guess Jesus was busy doing more important things than watching Sean dance. If you believe in that sort of thing. Sigh.

  • Franky

    He might be a bit caught up in IDOL this week and those hopes and dreams. I kid. :)

  • YeP

    I didn’t watch but the not necessarily the bottom 2 crap they pull is worse than Nigel

  • YeP

    She’s a professional hip hop dancer.. Why is she in this program

  • http://twitter.com/CanadianLady2 CanadianLady

    I’m confused. How is next week the semi-final if there are still 5 people left? Don’t they need to get to 4? I thought the final is always 3?

  • supersonic

    It’s okay that Zendaya is a ringer. She’s paired with Val instead of Derek.

  • Franky

    This baffled me as well but perhaps we have a double elimination next week. Or maybe they are expanding the finale to 4.

    I am happy for Kellie Pickler, I did not think she would get that far. When she was on Idol, it seemed like I was the only one voting for her- people HATED her, I never knew why, I thought she was great, glad to know people have been voting for her this time around

  • Kris

    The celebs and pros tweeted for what dance they wanted and they got it. So what is the big deal with Zendaya doing the same? I guess all of their “little armies” fell right in step and got it for them.

  • Kris

    Whether or not she is a professional hip hop dancer is debatable. We have had this debate before. What she is not is a professional ballroom dancer. Which is the only requirement of this show. Zendaya is not the first star to have had some dance experience and she will not be the last. There have been people who have had ballet and tap training as well as those who’ve danced choreographed routines for a living.

  • supersonic

    Rumor is that they’re going to have four couples in the final this time around.

  • supersonic

    Yeah, but she’s pretty much a little bit of the ballroom styles on her show.

  • Franky

    LOL. Well, I guess it makes sense considering Kellie/Aly/Zendaya/and Jacoby have basically owned this competition from week one.

  • Kris

    Do you watch her show? What ballroom styles has she done on her show?

  • Susan

    I hated Kellie on Idol since I thought she sang out of tune!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Li-Wright/100001622678180 Li Wright

    Dancing on the Ceiling dance — Lionel Richie did that and they showed how it’s done….also I believe MJ and Fred Astaire (the first) did that dance on the floor and ceiling. Cool.
    How is it the Brit girls are kicking the American girls ass in the recording department?

  • http://twitter.com/raya4 raya

    I think it’s pretty widely acknowledged at this point they are having a F4. Some of the pros have confirmed it already.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Li-Wright/100001622678180 Li Wright

    Just bought her MP3.

  • http://twitter.com/raya4 raya

    They don’t do ballroom styles on her show. They don’t even do contemporary on her show. It’s all hip hop, and honestly not even good hip hop. I think there is supposedly some video of the kids faking 30 seconds of a latin type dance which is making the rounds as “proof” of her ballroom training, despite the fact that it’s not even actual ballroom and there is no technique to speak of whatsoever.

    On the few rare occasions her show includes non-hip hop, it is not being performed by the kids on the show but by guest dancers.

  • http://twitter.com/raya4 raya

    The part that some people are failing to realize IMO is that the ones complaining could have banned together to vote for a different dance for Z. They didn’t. Also beyond that if she didn’t get it than Kellie, Aly, Jacoby or someone else would have and people would have been pissed even more that their fave was saddled with hip hop. Karina, Kym and Derek clearly said that was the one dance they didn’t want. Not one of the other celebs (or pros) could remotely pull off anything even passable in that arena. I’m not even sure Val can honestly. Nobody else wanted it with a 10 ft pole.

  • Kris

    I agree. But even if she had done a ballroom dance on her show she wouldn’t be the first one to have danced a ballroom dance before competing. Tia Carrere danced a Tango in True Lies and danced a Tango on DWTS. She certainly isn’t a professional ballroom dancer and neither is Zendaya.

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    It would be wonderful if Val won, but I’d feel just a wee bit sad that Maks never won. Zendaya is a terrific partner.

  • supersonic

    They recently had a four couple final on Strictly Come Dancing, the British original. But they only announced who came in 4th and the winner. They didn’t announce 2nd and 3rd place. If DWTS actually goes through with the four couple final, they’ll probably do it like that.

  • breakdown

    Let’s see. Kellie was never in jeopardy, Jason didn’t even fake singing, pretty funny if Zen bombs with hip hop next week and Jesus has left the building.

  • hcpoirot

    The producer desperately want Ingo to leave so they announce he is safe first. Putting Kellie and Jacoby in jeopardy to raise more votes for them next week.

    I bet they will put Ingo to dance first next week.

  • supersonic

    I don’t watch her show, but I’ve read that she’s done some ballroom stuff on there. She’s done salsa and flamenco; and apparently, she has done a Viennese Waltz with Derek.

  • http://twitter.com/raya4 raya

    But if you’ve never bothered to watch, how can you make claims about what she does or doesn’t do on her show? Reading something, especially out of the mouths of people that already hate her, doesn’t make it true.

  • http://twitter.com/tinawinabina Tinawina

    My kids subject me to that show every damn day. I do think the two leads are likeable cutie patooties, but take it from me that Zendaya does hip-hop dance on there and most of it is not very good (though she’s better than the other one). They are routinely outdanced by the guest dancers and the regular backups.I’m actually kind of surprised to find out people think she’s some kind of super trained ringer. LOL. She’s adorable but no, she’s not a great hip hop dancer and they don’t do anything close to complicated on that show. I was actually surprised to find out she’d doing so well on this show.

  • PinkClouds20

    I didn’t like her on Idol either, but I like her on DWTS. She’s a very good dancer. On Idol, she relied more on her looks and her dumb blonde, country bumpkin shtick more than her voice, which isn’t all that good.

  • http://twitter.com/Heidijoy5 Heidijoy

    Have always liked Kellie’s genuineness!! She has accomplished a lot considering her Mom abandoned her, her father was in jail etc etc. Thank God for her Grandparents. She has done well in Country Music and people love her. :) I’m rooting for her on DWTS!!

  • Kris

    If you haven’t watched her show then how can you say what styles of dance she has done previously? You’re making all these “ringer” claims but you don’t know anything about Zendaya’s dance background beyond what she has said herself and haven’t watched any of the dancing she has done on Shake It Up.

  • supersonic

    I’ve read from people who watched the show and did their research on the girl.

  • Elissa

    Hey it’s good that he brought Jesus into it! ENUF SAID!

  • Miel Mani

    And what, exactly, does THAT mean?! I think the reason so many people are whining about her (“she’s too young!”Uh, one year younger than Shawn Johnson was, and I don’t recall any whining about her age); “she’s already a dancer.” Well, so was Nicole Scherzinger. I think the people who are complaining the loudest are the Derek fans, who are afraid Val and Zendaya will kick their little tushies into dance purgatory…and here’s hoping they do!!!!!!
