'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Double Elimination


Well, have we all gotten the bad taste out of our mouths following last weeks TERRIBLE elimination of Heather and Maks?

No?

Yeah, me neither.

'Dancing With the Stars' shocked everyone last week with Heather's exit, but we needed to move forward. We also had a very special judge on hand, choreographer Mandy Moore (No not the 'This Is Us' star!!) with Julianne Hough sitting this week out.

Tonight's theme was Movie Night, with the remaining couples dancing to famous songs from the big screen. However, it wasn't just a single elimination on deck....

It was a DOUBLE!!

Now here's the catch:

Normani and Val won the immunity challenge nabbing the only perfect score of the night, which means they weren't going anywhere! Following the dance offs, it was time to get to the eliminations.

The eliminated couples were:

Nancy and Artem
Nick and Peta




Let's recap the night shall we?

Simone Biles and Sasha - Charleston

Allow me to be blunt:

Hands down, my absolute FAVORITE dance of the entire season thus far!!!!

Simone and Sasha's silent film charleston was absolutely fantastic from start to finish, and I can't rave about this enough. It was fast, full of content, and Simone seemed so comfortable with this style. The tricks were landed perfectly!

Three 9's and a 10 from Carrie Ann!!

37 out of 40 

Normani Kordei and Val - Argentine Tango

Our beloved Fifth Harmony member continued to make her play for the Mirror Ball with a flawless tango that had yours truly's eyes LOCKED on the screen. The chemistry between the two was out of this world, and dare I say, their best yet?

PERFECT SCORE!!

40 out of 40

Nick Viall and Peta - Argentine Tango

Can someone tell me where Nick pulled this out of?!

This action packed Argentine tango was scorching hot, but for some odd reason the judges were picking the HELL out of it. They praised certain moments, but called out a lot of mistakes. I guess because I'm not a professional, I don't see them!

Two 8's and two 9's.

34 out of 40

Nancy Kerrigan and Artem - Tango

Putting a romantic spin on the tango, the pro figure skater absolutely NAILED this routine and yours truly was in love with it from start to finish. Aside from some nitpicking from the judges, they all loved it, awarding them four 9's!

36 out of 40

David Ross and Lindsay - Salsa 

This......wasn't good.

David really seemed stiff throughout the entire routine, only hitting the odd move here and there. The judges called it a lot of fun, but not the smoothest salsa either. They were awarded four 8's for their dance.

32 out of 40

Rashad Jennings and Emma - Paso Doble

Echoing what the judges have been saying the past few weeks:

Rashad is a DANCER!!

This horror themed Paso was terrifyingly BRILLIANT and how it didn't get a perfect score baffles me. Three 9's and a lone 10 from Mandy.

37 out of 40

Bonner Bolton and Sharna - Paso Doble

The western themed paso doble sounded like it would be right up the bull rider's alley, and he did a very good job. Was it an excellent paso? No, but it still worked very well. Most of the judges praised the routine, but Carrie Ann was the lone hold out, thinking he got lost within the content.

They awarded them three 7's and an 8 from Mandy.

Madonna Delivers Brutal Truth During Billboard Honor

UPDATED WITH FULL VIDEO:


 I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.

Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....

She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!

Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.

Including some tears.

If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.

Thank you Madonna.

Read her entire speech below:

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."

Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: 

"People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

WHOA! Alanis Morissette Is Unrecognizable With New Haircut!!

WATCH: Britney Spears SLAYS Her Billboard Music Awards Medley!!

I haven't recovered.......so...bare with me.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....

SHE DESTROYED THE STAGE!!!

Our favorite Louisiana girl brought the house down right out the gate, with a scorching performance that included 'Work Bitch', 'Womanizer' (THAT BREAKDOWN!!!),'I Love Rock N' Roll,  'Breathe On Me', 'Touch of my Hand', 'Slave 4 U' and of course, 'Toxic'.

What has to be mentioned is Brit's energy on stage. Her smile was back, she moved like the pro we all fell in love with, and it was FIRE from start to finish.

Check out the FULL performance below!!





And don't......oh DON'T.....ever forget this moment:




Ariana Grande Makes Her Flawless Return With 'No Tears Left To Cry'!!

Okay, so yours truly has been trying to figure out how to put this into words, and here we go.

After what has seemed like an eternity, pop princess Ariana Grande has returned to our lives with new music, and we couldn't be more grateful.

With all of the hype behind her new single 'No Tears Left To Cry', as well as the subsequent teasers, we were expecting a powerhouse ballad from the singer.

While we get stellar vocals (THAT PRE-CHORUS!!) the song is nothing like what I expected as the first track off of her upcoming 4th studio album (reportedly due out June 15th).

The bouncy, synthetic track flows effortlessly from Grande and it's giving us everything we didn't know we needed!

Check out the song and accompanying 'Inception' like video below:
