(VIDEO) 2011: DANCING WITH THE STARS NEW LINE-UP; WEAK CAST IS DISAPPOINTING

Popular tv show DANCING WITH THE STARS announced the new line-up for season 13 and many are disappointed.  It seems as though the more interesting stars were not available so a back-up plan was put in place.  Originally the proposed cast included Snooki and Queen Latifah, which now seems golden compared to the current competitors.

News outlets were heavily debating the choice of stars today and they did not seem pleased. While it’s always hard to know who will be the stand-out until the dancing begins, the stars need to at least have some appeal.  In this case, none of them seem to have the “wow” factor; so I’m not sure who picked them and why they were selected. 

There were so many other stars who would have been more exciting.  Was Snooki too busy tanning?  Did Beyoncé say no because she is having a baby?  Was Charlie Sheen too busy “winning”?  Does Cher have too many shows booked?  Was Will Smith too busy squashing rumors of a divorce?  Did Diana Ross say “No way!”  Were all the other reality tv show stars on vacation?  It seems as though someone better had to be available.  Seriously,  Chaz Bono? Nancy Grace?  Really, are these the best names this money-making show had in their Rolodex?

It’s sad when the only one who really seems interesting enough to watch is a relatively unknown actor, Jr. Martinez.  I had to google him to learn his background.  But at least he has substance and is a war hero with a touching story.  His serious burns caused by a tragic accident, just six weeks into his military career, is heartbreaking.  But his zest for life is inspiring.  So without even stepping a foot on the stage, he is already my favorite for the lovely “Mirror Ball” trophy.

The show typically has huge ratings.  Let’s see if a weak cast can still keep them in the top ten.  This will be a telling season; if it still rates high we will know American’s have too much time on their hands.  Or there is really no competing shows worth watching in the same time slot.

Only time will tell, how this will end.  But maybe we should not criticize until we see what they can do…they say, don’t judge a book by its cover.

What do you think?  Do you have a better list of stars you’d like to see?  If so, who?

The full list of stars includes: Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavalleri, Riki lake, Chynna Phillips, Hope Solis, Elizabetta Canalis, David Arquette, Rob kKardashian, Jr. martinez, Chaz Bono, Ron Artest and Carson Kressley.

2011 DANCING WITH THE STARS NEW LINE-UP; SNOOKI, QUEEN LATIFAH & MORE!

The popular t.v. series “Dancing With The Stars” announced a partial list of new contestants for their upcoming season.  Joining the cast is Queen Latifah, Nicole Pouzzi (Snooki), Rob Kardashian, Tiffany Thiessen, and Kristin Cavallari. 

It is an interesting variety of stars and will be pure entertainment to see Snooki, from the Jersey Shore, get her grove on without dance music. Let’s hope she lays off the booze long enough to learn the routine and complete her performance.  The other draw will be Queen Latifah, showing her more “feminine side” in graceful flowing gowns, and Rob Kardashian finally getting his time in the spotlight without is extremely famous sisters.  Let’s hope he can dance better than “other” family members, not that they are not loved.

The remaining members of the cast will be announced on August 29th.

UPDATE VIDEO 8/29/11:  SO NOW THE NEW FULL LINEUP COMES OUT AND IS LESS EXCITING!  THEY SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH SNOOKI & QUEEEN LATIFAH…SERIOUSLY, IT IS WEAK.  http://brittaj17.wordpress.com/2011/08/30/video-2011-dancing-with-the-stars-new-line-up-weak-cast-is-disappointing/

PEOPLES CHOICE AWARDS…NOT MY CHOICE!

QUEEN LATIFAH

Queen Latifah, hosted the People’s Choice Awards tonight, and although I like her, she was a flop.  She did not have the spunk to host such a big show, and was not really funny.  It seems like they had a limited amount of choices, when selecting her, but that is not confirmed. 

Why did she spend so much time on the cast of Twilight?  Did they pay for a t.v. spot or what?  She dragged it out way too long, as they looked uncomfortable and as though they were saying, “please move it along!”.  That was exactly what I was screaming at my television as she continued to harass them.  And isn’t she a bit well, “old news” for the awards show, which targets a younger generation? 

Hopefully next year, they will have more time to find an adequate host, my vote is for Tosh, he would rock the house!
