Dancing With the Stars 2012 Week 6 Preview: Motown Night

The Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast will have their first night of double performances on Monday. The eight remaining DWTS 2012 cast celebrities will each dance to a Motown theme. There will also be a Motown Marathon dance where contestants will have the chance to earn additional points from the judges based on how long they can outlast the other remaining couples.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver, who has been having a stellar past few weeks on Dancing With the Stars 2012, says he was very excited to prepare for Motown week “because we have one of the biggest stars in Motown history on the cast.” Driver wrote in his Journal Sentinel blog that it has “been such a pleasure getting to know Gladys Knight and I think everyone wants to come out and give their best performances of the season on Monday’s show to pay tribute to her amazing career.”

Dancing With the Stars 2012: Cast Works It Hard for Rock Week (VIDEOS)

This week, the Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast worked it out hard on the dance floor for ‘rock week’ — on of my favorite theme nights for DWTS. Going into this week, DWTS 2012 favorites Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas were leading the pack with 91 total points from the judges over the second place (but equally as hot) duo of William Levy and Cheryl Burke at 77 points. Did Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas manage to hold onto the lead? Read on with our Dancing With the Stars recap of week 4 to find out!

WARNING: DANCING WITH THE STARS 2012 SPOILERS AHEAD

To kick off the competition this week, guest performers KISS lit up the stage (literally, courtesy of pyrotechnics) before the first couple strutted out for their rock week performance. The first rock concert I ever went to was a KISS concert. That dates me and makes me feel incredibly old right now after watching them creak around the stage.

Dancing With the Stars 2012: Jaleel White Says Tabloid Rumors Nothing New

In addition to the rumors going around that Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast member Jaleel White recently had a nasty fight with his dance partner Kym Johnson, there are also tabloid reports that the former child star was even more of a ‘Jerkel’ to his ex-girlfriend and baby momma.

Bridget Hardy, Jaleel White’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, recently revealed in a tabloid interview that the Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast member allegedly abused her verbally and physically. Hardy told Star magazine that  during their relationship, White had hit her, once pushed her into a toilet (which allegedly broke and flooded everywhere) and verbally abused her regularly.

Dancing With the Stars 2012: Jaleel White Denies Being a ‘Jerkel’ to Kym Johnson

Former child star Jaleel White is very tired of the nasty rumor going around that he has an attitude problem on Dancing With the Stars 2012. The Family Matters star says the press has totally overblown reports of an alleged fight between himself and dance partner Kym Johnson and rejects his new tabloid nickname of ‘Jerkel’.

Jaleel White appeared on Good Morning American on Monday to talk about his gig on Dancing With the Stars 2012 and to refute nasty rumors going around that he was a first class ‘Jerkel’ to dance partner Kym Johnson during a recent rehearsal.

Dancing With the Stars 2012: Cast Performs Most Memorable Moments (VIDEO)

This week the Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast performed the most memorable moments of their lives in dance. For the Dancing With the Stars 14 cast, it is both an emotional and an awkward night as they share (and are judged on) their personal stories interpreted through dance.

Last year on Dancing With the Stars 2011, the winner of ‘personal story’ night was overwhelmingly obvious when war veteran J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff danced about the terrible injuries sustained by the soap opera star while serving in Iraq. The audience wept, the judges were moved and the scores for the night meant nothing. That was Martinez’s night, hands down.

Dancing With the Stars 2012 Premiere: Who Is Your Favorite?

The new Dancing With the Stars 2012 premiere episode airs Monday night on ABC and fans are already picking out their favorite celebrity dancers to cheer on. Fans of the show will tune in tonight to see the Dancing With the Stars season 14 cast in action for the first time. Some of the faces will be familiar to many, while some of the more obscure DWTS 2012 cast could face a harder road in winning fan support. We’ll be curious to see if some fans switch out their first choices after watching the cast members on the dance floor for the first time.

More well-known Dancing With the Stars 2012 cast members such as singer Gladys Knight, actors Jack Wagner and Jaleel White, and tennis star Martina Navratilova may not have trouble garnering fan votes. (Although, well, we know who Martina Navratilova is, and she does have that unique ‘lesbian’ factor going, but we’re doubting even that makes her interesting enough to vote for.) This year, however, there are a lot of lesser known ‘celebrities’ on this year’s show who could have trouble connecting with the DWTS fan base. Will their lack of star power stand in their way of making it to the finale?
