    Estefan also said she'll appear on Dancing with the Stars next week after missing her scheduled date last month.

    "This Tuesday, I'll be on to fulfill my commitment," she said. "I was really sad that I had to cancel. But, I had to be with my mom, no two ways about it. She was really, really ill."

    How does this show work, anyway?

    I would think the line is a mile long to get into the tapings, but this post makes it sound as if anyone can show up any time. WHat is the scoop?

    Also, I've heard that the recap show is really taped on Monday - not Tuesday. True???

    And, I'm confused about the phrase JoLo "taping" her performance. I missed that night, but did she do it remotely and they played her on video or did she perform on stage like most do?

    You have to be issued a ticket, which is no guarantee that you will get in. Those with regular tickets wait in line until the priority and VIP people are let in. Only enough of the people waiting outside to fill the remaining seats will be allowed into the studio. If you get there early, odds are that you'll get in. Normally, if you don't get in, you will be given a priority ticket for the next week.

    Both shows are live, so they are taped while they are airing. Some, if not all, of the artists performing are taped ahead of time. I was offered tickets to JLo's taping, which was on Sunday.

    Re: DWTS Media Thread

    Here's how the show works:

    Mondays are taped live. Taped because the show is filmed in LA, but live to the east coast. There really aren't any celebrity singers, etc.. so it is just the couples dancing.

    Tuesdays are taped live in the same way..... EXCEPT when the extra talent, ie singers or dancers that are headlining can't make the regular time slot (which is a 6pm start). They bring in a different audience to watch the singing, or whatever it is and film it, then during the live show they edit in the film of the singer so that it looks like it is happening live. That is what happened with JLo.

    To attend the show you have to have a ticket, which you can get by signing up online (or perhaps knowing someone in the cast, production, etc..). BUT, you still have to lineup outside prior to the show. It appears that they give out quite a few more tickets than there are seats, just in case people flake out and don't show. Can't have any empty seats being seen on television. So they tell you that if you don't line up early you might not get in. They let in ticket holders in increments. They fill up all the upper seats and less desireable seats.

    The floor seats are initially reserved for other celebrities or friends and family of celebrities. When you first get in, the names of the celebrities are posted on the seats, this gives the crew an idea of who is going to be there. Now the good part. Many of these people don't show up either, so right before the show starts these seats are filled with the ticket holders who are still waiting outside. They basically become seatfillers.

    I have never not gotten in, but then I get there at least 2 to 3 hours earlier than the time on the ticket. I don't know how many people were left without seats. Maybe one of the others who have been might have an answer.

    Hope that helps.

    This helps clarify. Thank you, so much. So, there really are two nights of live taping - Monday and Tuesday - and the possibility of a 3rd to accomodate celebrity guests - Sundays.

    Yes?

    Ya, it could be any day actually, for the third day. I've seen it where they come in same day, just earlier say a 11am taping, AND that requires a new audience too.

    PS. has anyone else seen the jewelry store commercial with Edyta and Alec ballroom dancing? it's very cute...

    Dancing's Karina Smirnoff Gets Plastic Surgery on Nose
    MONDAY NOVEMBER 12, 2007 08:45 PM EST

    By Monica Rizzo

    Karina Smirnoff of Dancing with the Stars had plastic surgery on her twice-broken nose, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

    The 29-year-old dancing pro who partnered with boxer Floyd Mayweather this season had the procedure done Nov. 2 for medical as well as aesthetic reasons.

    A doctor performed the routine procedure to repair the nasal passageway and reshape Smirnoff's nose, which she's broken twice in accidents in the past six years.

    Smirnoff is expected to make a swift recovery in time to appear on the November 27 DWTS finale when all of the season five couples will reunite on the ballroom floor.

    "She can breathe easier," the surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Nicolov, told Extra. "She may find being a little less tired, a little less winded."

    DWTS' Mark Ballas Will "Avenge" Sabrina's Exit with One Last Dance
    by Deborah Starr Seibel

    How's this for a knight in shining armor? Dancing with the Stars pro Mark Ballas can't wait to come back to the show to "avenge" partner Sabrina Bryan's shocking elimination two weeks ago. "She was voted off too early," Ballas, who is now romantically involved with Bryan, tells TVGuide.com. "She's great, she's lovely, and she was by far the best dancer. No one can take that away from her. So I want to come back to avenge her."

    In each of the past four seasons, all of the couples have been asked back to do a short turn on the dance floor during the finale, normally not more than about 10 seconds. But according to Ballas (although not yet confirmed by ABC), "What I'm hearing is that they want us to do a whole dance, whether it be paso doble or cha-cha."

    That would be a Dancing first, and a highly charged moment for both the dancers and the audience. The danger, of course, is that emotional fireworks over Sabrina and Mark might overshadow the eventual winner. But in this case, the stars who are still in the running might be cheering loudest of all. Because what the audience doesn't know is that last week, when Spice Girl Mel B. and her pro partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, sported cheetah-paw-print tattoos — worn in solidarity with Bryan — they weren't the only ones.

    "The whole cast was wearing them," says Bryan. "Jane [Seymour] had hers on her lower back. Marie [Osmond] had hers on her ankle. Helio [Castroneves] was wearing a 'We Love Sabrina' T-shirt in one of his interviews." Bryan adds, "I had no idea that I would come out of this with such amazing friendships and support — especially Mel B. and Jennie [Garth], who have really taken me on, almost like a little sister, someone they watch over and take care of."

    Ballas is feeling protective, too. He says that Bryan is the best student he's ever had. "She was like my protégé," says Ballas. "I've never worked with someone who wanted it so bad and was clinging to every word I said. And so for me, it was frustrating because she worked so hard. It got very personal."

    Ballas says he's heard rumblings that the voters might have thought that Bryan had an unfair advantage because of her background as a hip-hop dancer. "People say she came too far too fast," says Ballas. "But in the beginning, when I first met her, she was clueless. She could stand with her knees bent and go "Yeah, yeah, boom, boom, hip-hop.' But as far as having your feet turned out properly, your hair in a wonderful beehive hairdo and a ballroom gown with feathers at your feet? She didn't know how to do that. It's a totally different kettle of fish."

    No matter what happens on the show, the good news is that Ballas and Bryan will continue dancing together. They've both signed on to do the third national Dancing tour, which kicks off Dec. 18 in Seattle. "It means a lot to us to be able to carry on performing," says Ballas. "And I want to show Sabrina's full potential. I really wanted to show America what she could do. I know there was a lot more I could've pulled out of her if we had stayed in the competition. So I'm definitely going to be pulling out all the stops on the tour."

    Thanks Bama for the posts! I thought I heard Tom B. say that they would be back on the show at the Semi-final, which is next week.
