Apparently I have an affinity for "jive"–not "talkin’" but dancin’.
Just five months ago I fell head over stilettos into Helio Castroneves & Julianne Hough when they performed The Jive; now, I’m totally crushin’ Kristi Yamaguchi & Mark Ballas.
Get to the almost two-minute mark and prepare to be delighted–you might just join Carrie Ann in giving them a standing O! Mark says the dance is all about stamina and being "fun, fast & quirky". They’re all that and oh, so much MORE!
Marlee Matlin is an inspiration; Jason Taylor and Cristián de la Fuente are scorchin’; but it looks like Kristi’s destined for gold…again!
They were good — My favorite dance was the group dance though. My 5 year old and I watch this show EVEY week (I even discoveroed my Father In Law watches it!)
So much fun to watch! I’m amazed how, week after week, these stars remember all their steps and throw themselves into the performances. They make something very challenging look easy.
How fun! I used to do a lot of swing dancing, but nothing like that. Amazing!
You know, I don’t watch TV that much, so I’ve only seen this show in passing as I switch to something educational or historical or switch the TV OFF, but I really enjoy things like ballroom dancing and other forms of dance, and this couple did a great job!! They are fun (and exhausting:)) to watch. I sometimes wish I could do that, but my body would have to be in much better shape than it is now. Right now, trying that, I would fall apart…literally!!
I can’t believe I’ve missed out on Stars this season. I just forgot about watching it. Kristi looks awesome!
Oh I know it! These two are infectious. I want not to like them…I always root for the underdogs but these two are just too good!
(I got a good giggle out of your post on my giveaway…no worries.:)
I’ve always loved the Jive. You could say that Kristi has an advantage given that she’s from a body movement sport rather than being an actor, that is until you realise she just did that in high heels. That’s very impressive.
My favorite is the jive and they DID it!
I loved this jive. I want to be Kristi.
Heather, the show has appeal across the board, no?
Jeanne, I KNOW! Almost makes me think I could do it! Gosh, I’d like to try!
Heather, HOW COOL IS THAT?!
Peculiar, this one’s good, clean FUN!
Karmyn, it’s never too late to remember!
WT, I wouldn’t have guessed you liked jive; then again, you have a few tricks up your sleeves ;). Kristi amazes me, even with her advantage!
Sally & Hula, I KNOW, I KNOW!! 🙂
Isn’t she the CUTEST??? She was always my favorite skater. I just love seeing her dance!!!
