SAN DIEGO, November 10, 2014 – In just two weeks there will be a brand new Mirror Ball Trophy winner as the champion of “Dancing With The Stars” Season 19. Hard to believe.
Tonight’s quarterfinals bring back one of the best innovations on the series, the Trio dances. Each couple gets to add one professional to their routine. It can be anyone not competing, male or female, and either an eliminated pro or a member of the DWTS troupe.
Your columnist will be seated in the ballroom for the live show on Monday. Our live online chat will be hosted by senior editor Jacquie Kubin, assisted by fan expert Leslie McClung. Then come back to Communities for your exclusive inside report from behind-the-scenes afer the show. Perhaps two heads and two pair of twinkle toes are better than one. The routines never disappoint.
Each couple also dances a standard ballroom competitive routine on their own in addition to the Trios. It’s a great week to watch the top six couples perform. Expect the judges to be especially tough. The also-ran performers are gone. All of the couples remaining have something to offer.
In the show’s never ending quest to engage with fans via social media, the individual routine is being called “America’s Choice. Fans were asked for input via Faceook, Instagram and Twitter on wardrobe, set design and visual effects for the individual routines. Were you motivated enough to weigh in? Nope, I wasn’t either. I trust the creative DWTS professionals who work with the dancers and stars every week to work their magic for us.
At the end of the show Monday, we will find out which five couples move on to the semi-finals.
In just two weeks there will be a brand new Mirror Ball Trophy winner as the champion of “Dancing With The Stars” Season 19. Hard to believe.
