    This Just In! J.Lo Makes a Last-Minute Dancing Shuffle

    I just got word that Jennifer Lopez will pretape her Dancing with the Stars performance two days earlier than originally planned.

    Lopez was to have done the pretape on Tuesday, the same night it would have aired on this week’s results show.

    However, word on the Dancing set is that Lopez informed producers sometime in the last couple of days that she would not be able to make it on Tuesday because of a "family emergency," according to a source.

    I’m told Lopez will tape her performance tonight on the Los Angeles set at 8:30 p.m. Her gig on the competition show reportedly coincides with Dancing’s Latin week.

    Reps for Lopez and the show could not be immediately reached.

    Actually, most guests do not perform "live" on the results show. They usually tape their performance in front of the audience before the show starts, then it is aired during the live show. They also do this with the pro performances. I suppose to make sure everything goes smoothly and to save time.

    Hmm, not what they say during the ET segments and interviews, but ok. At any rate, I'm so not into Jennifer Lopez, wouldn't make a lot of difference to me about her performance.
    I live in my own world. But it's ok, they know me there.

    Place your bets! Mel & Maks will win ‘Dancing’
    Jennie Garth and Helio Castroneves are the next most likely to take prize

    By Ree Hines

    It’s week eight in the strangest season of “Dancing with the Stars” ever. Initial buzz focused on the best celebrity soft-shoe talent yet, but it wasn’t long before for a series of unfortunate events — Marie Osmond’s fainting and the deaths of her dad and Jane Seymour’s mom — and one shocking exit — Sabrina Bryan’s — took over the water cooler talk.

    It’s hard to believe that after the hubbub of California fires, B-list illnesses, tragic losses and a suddenly Cheetah-less competition, season five is in its final weeks.

    Of course, the way it’s shaping up, the stars are more likely to have a house fall on them than to make it to finale night. Assuming that doesn’t happen, two couples are bound for the dance off. In a battle of skill versus fan bases, here’s a look at the odds.

    Mel and Maksim

    Finale night chances: As the natural successors to the Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas throne, M&M are a shoo-in. Or, you know, totally out the door next week. One or the other.

    Since their first performance of the season, Mel B and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy stood out as one of the couples to watch. Sure, they had that bottom two appearance in week four, but that was more about Mark Cuban’s inexplicable staying power than the minimal flaws in their Viennese waltz.

    As the competition progresses, Mel continues to improve her ballroom skills and excels in the Latin routines, as evidenced by last week’s fierce paso doble. But with Scary spending so much time prepping for that much-hyped Spice Girls reunion tour, rehearsal time suffers. Just prior to that perfect-score paso, Mel and Maks delivered a fumbling foxtrot. Still, compared to who’s left in the competition, they set the standard.

    Helio and Julianne

    Finale night chances: If there’s going to be male celeb in the end, and for once that’s not a given, it’s Helio.

    Two-time Indy champ Helio Castroneves came to the show with natural talent, the only early standout in the pack of dud dudes. But even under the tutelage of last season’s pro champ Julianne Hough, Helio’s performances remained uneven and unpredictable. He’ll soar one week; flop the next. His inconsistencies range from near perfect footwork to random heel-toe action, from acting charmingly goofy to stiff and uncomfortable.

    Look for Helio to shine in the upcoming freestyle dances, as Julianne is sure to focus on his strong points, like timing, hip action and, well, smiling. Helio and Julianne also have the added advantage of being fan favorites. Even during their weakest week, they weren’t hit with the dreaded red light of doom.

    Jennie and Derek

    Finale night chances: Not a frontrunner, but, hey, nobody thought Kelly would get back with Dylan, either, and she totally did. In your face, Brenda!

    With the exception of that memorable head dive into Derek Hough’s backside, Jennie Garth’s had it pretty good. Not only is Jennie one of the most improved dancers of the competition, she has yet to land in the bottom two. It comes down to a combination of good — though not spectacular — showings coupled with the loyal “90210” constituency. That’s what kept Ian Ziering around until week nine last season, after all.

    Or maybe the voting audience is head over heels for Jennie’s “Do you really think I’m good? Cause, shucks, I don’t,” attitude. People love to root for the underdog, but the thing is, she isn’t one. Sure, Jennie’s no Mel B. But as head judge Len Goodman put it, “The only person who isn’t convinced you’re a really good dancer is you.”

    Cameron and Edyta

    Finale night chances: Soap fans are a loyal bunch, but SuperCam’s more likely to actually fly than dance into the finale on merit alone.

    Cameron Mathison’s come a long way since his counting-the-steps and “what do I do with my arms?” days. But is it far enough? Too many of Cam and Edyta Sliwinska’s routines rely on gimmicks. It’s rare to see the couple kick off any dance without his now-requisite leap from the stage steps. And Edyta’s attempts to distract with near nudity fail to cover Cameron’s flubs.

    SuperCam has a lock on charisma, and if the talent bar weren’t set so high this time around, he’d be a sure thing for the finals. But his decent moves and buckets of charm weren’t enough to keep Cam and Edyta out of the red zone a couple of weeks ago after they delivered a so-so samba. If this pair makes to the freestyle, fans may see a little more finesse from the hottie duo.

    Marie and Jonathan

    Finale night chances: Zilch. Not even the massive Osmond voting block can save Johnny and Marie.

    Talk about tough runs! Marie Osmond’s gone through a lot to get this far. Unfortunately, that doesn’t include much in the way of fancy footwork. To her credit, Marie has provided viewers with one of the most exciting episodes of “Dancing with the Stars” ever. But scaring the bejesus out of everyone by fainting doesn’t count as a showstopper in the strictly ballroom sense.

    Officially, Marie and pro pal Jonathan Roberts never hit the bottom two, even though it seemed obvious they would have last week. The producers, to their credit, sort of threw the bottom two thing out the window following the death of Marie’s father, George Osmond. Given week after week of dismal performances, it’s a shame her presumed low point would have come following her anomalous spot on “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” number.

    Bruno Tonioli is always willing to rank the final few all as a “smoking symphony of sizzling” something. This time, he wouldn’t be too far off. Barring a fault line opening up just beneath the dance floor and eliminating finale night concerns all together, or Marie Osmond taking it all the way, two worthy celebs and their partners are set to dance it out for the glittering disco ball kebab — er, trophy.

    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.

    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...
