Taylor Hicks And Cast Of ‘Grease’ Combine To Make Fun Show

DURHAM – With American Idol winner Taylor Hicks cast as the Teen Angel in the 1950’s-themed musical “Grease, ” the whole show is a fun and entertaining two hours that leaves you wanting more.

The brand new building is a beautiful addition that is next to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and other renovated areas of the city.

Without any disasters, someone who did fine will go home

There are still 10 couples left on ‘Dancing With the Stars, ‘  but Tom Bergeron promised at the beginning that we are, indeed, halfway through the season with Monday’s Argentine tango and paso doble performances.

First up with the paso doble were Natalie Coughlin and Alec Mazo, who have been strong in recent weeks. Natalie’s relatively serene personality didn’t make her a natural bullfighting type, so Alec worked hard to get her passionate face in shape. Natalie had another strong showing, but she was indeed more skilled than she was fiery. While the dance to ‘American Woman’  wasn’t entirely convincing to the judges, they continued to praise her technique.


Donny Osmond Floating on ‘Cloud 10’ on ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Donny Osmond tangoed his way to the top of the scoreboard with partner Kym Johnson on “Dancing with the Stars” Monday night after receiving a 29 from the judges. He told his sister and ET’s special correspondent Marie Osmond, “We’re on cloud ten right now.”

Also joining Marie after the show was Derek Hough, who rested his dancing feet this week after being diagnosed with a bad case of the flu. He gave ET a health status update, saying, “I’m feeling a little better’ ¦I’m on the way up.”

Louie Vito Talks About Chemistry with Chelsie Hightower

Another Monday, which means another blog about Dancing With The Stars from me.

I wanted to start this week’s blog off by saying THANK YOU to everyone who voted for me last week. It definitely wasn’t my best dance but I worked hard and did it the best I could. It was a hard dance to do because it is a dance that is suppose to showcase the woman and one where the guy leads her around the entire dance. Let me tell you, although it is called a 2-step, it’s a lot harder than it sounds.

Enough of that, let’s move on to this week. I was ready from day one to step it up and make sure this was one of my better dances. The only thing is, I had to learn three dances this week. The Argentine tango, the hustle (group dance) and a knockout dance, which will be used next week if you are in the bottom two. I tried to put most of my effort and focus on the Argentine tango since the hustle is not judged and I felt like I needed to give you, the viewers, a better dance after last week.
