Dancing with the Stars Week 8 Recap

I am loving Dancing with the Stars this season! They are mostly to the point in the season now where they've weeded out the not so stellar dancers, so the people left are bringing really great performances to the show.

My three favorites thus far are definitely Alfonso Ribeiro, Sadie Robertson, and Lea Thompson. Alfonso is just an all around great dancer and performer. Sadie is adorable and works hard, and she's not too bad of a dancer either. And, Lea is beautiful and graceful. Girl has legs for DAYS!

I'm not really that drawn to Janel Parrish or Bethany Mota. Don't get me wrong, they have performed really well on the show. I'm just not familiar with them outside of the show, so I don't feel much of a connection. I also think that Janel and Val are trying too hard to recreate the chemistry that Maks and Meryl had, but I could be wrong.

Anyway, here are my three favorite dances from last night...

Hands down, theirs was the best! Janel's contemporary chops are really good, and the emotion was definitely there.

Other than the beginning of this dance with the zipline, there wasn't the level of dramatics that a lot of the other performances had. It was a cha-cha-cha through and through, and Alfonso's technique seemed really good too. Bottom line, he's just a good dancer.

I also really loved the jive dance off between Alfonso/Whitney and Lea/Artem. They both did an awesome job! If you aren't interested in the pre-dance hubbub, skip to 3:30 for the beginning of the dance off.


Have you been watching DWTS this season? What are your thoughts?


How do you feel about the new look for Jane Not So Plain? I was ready for a refresh, and I think the banner under my blog title alludes nicely to a do it yourself feel. I also really like the cleaner appearance of the layout.



  1. 1) LOVE the new blog design.
    2) I'm obsessed with DWTS, though I don't have one fav this season, yet. Totally agree on Janel's dance and Alfonso overall.

  2. I LOVE the new design! I've been reading your blog for awhile now and it is crazy how similar we are- like we even have the same name. haha
