To start the day …. “Alexa and Derek’s Tango: Switch Up Night”!!


~~October 13, 2015~~ 


The competition is heating up.

Last night was almost perfect.

The switch up proved to be the needed push for most competitors to step up their game.

You may know I am very partial to Bindi Irwin.

Alexa and Derek received the first perfect score of this season.

They did a great job.

Honor where honor is due.

You be the judge.



It was the nuttiest week of the Dancing with the Stars season as all of the stars traded partners for one night of total insanity. Or at least that’s how it usually is.

Last night, October 12, 2015,  was actually great, and a lot less of a mess up than the switch-up often is. There were some truly incredible dances tonight, including the season’s first perfect score from a slightly unexpected pair!

While both Bindi Irwin and Carlos PenaVega totally rocked their routines with respective temporary partners Val Chmerkovskiy and Lindsay Arnold, it was Alexa PenaVega and Derek Hough who blew the roof off the place with their epic tango and scored a standing ovation from Carrie Ann Inaba (even if she thought it was a paso doble) and perfect tens from all four judges, including guest judge Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
