It was ladies night in the ballroom as General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam), television anchor and former cheerleader, Melissa Rycroft, and former Olympic champion, Shawn Johnson vied for the Mirror Ball Trophy in the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars final round.

Tonight the gals and their dance partners had to perform a routine they previously performed earlier in the season and then had to “wow” the judges and the audience at home with their Super-Sized Freestyle creation!

In the first round, Kelly and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy performed the paso doble hoping for their first set of perfect tens from the trio of judges.  A small slide by Kelly out of a turn knocked  down judge Carrie Ann Inaba’s score Kelly and Val a 9.5, while Bruno and Len gave the sexy duo perfect 10’s.  Meanwhile,  Melissa and her partner, Tony Dovolani performed the samba, where afterward Carrie Ann Inaba tells Melissa she is jealous of her abs, while Tony reminds everyone that he has waited 14 seasons to be a position to win the Mirror Ball Trophy.   The judges give Melissa and Tony all 10’s!   Finally, showstoppers Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough decided to go with the quickstep again.  This was the dance that they got harsh scores from the judges for breaking the rules.  Shawn and Derek say they are here to entertain more than thrill the judges and thus had points deducted once again and scored a 27.

In the Super Sized Freestyle round two, Kelly and Val danced to “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life” from Dirty Dancing with Kelly doing aerials, Val serenading her to a violin, and a choir!  Kelly and Val showed their undeniable chemistry on the ballroom floor, while the emotions of their time together during the competition was a driving force in their performance.   runo says, “Patrick Swayze would be smiling down at you.”  Len and Carrie Ann also liked it, and once again they scored a 29.5.    However, when Kelly and Val went to wait for their scores, DWTS All-Stars co-host, Brooke Burke-Charvet tried to eek out of Kelly what is going on in the relationship department between Kelly and Val.  Monaco teased, “There’s still another day of interviews.”   So will Kelly and Val admit to something tomorrow in the press? Or, do you think its a big tease?

Meanwhile, Melissa and Tony perform a contemporary Super-Sized Freestyle routine which showcased Rycroft’s extensions, grace, and abilities.  They get a perfect 10’s from all the judges leading many now to believe they are the couple to beat in the competition, but do they have the fan base?  Shawn Johnson brought in the Fierce Five – the woman’s U.S. Gymnastic team for her routine- and when Johnson took to the floors with Derek Hough and the gals it featured a lot of somersaults, flips, and circus rings, and Hough’s creative choreography.  They score a perfect 30!

So soapers, did you get vote for Kelly and Val?  Did you show them the power of the soaps fans?  What do you think is going on between Kelly and Val? Do you think it’s all just for PR?  Or, is something more going on between them?  And the big question, who do you think should win the Mirror Ball Trophy?  Let us know!

I voted for Kelly and Val, their chemistry is so hott. I believe that they will turn out to be more than just dance partners. I mean, come on, you don’ t just suck on a lollipop then put it somebody elses mouth if you’re not already swapping spit with them. Lol

I’m Proud of the amazing job Kelly Monaco has done on DWTS! Her performance last night with Val was Beautiful and Outstanding! And I can’t help but want there to be something more than just dance partners and friends. Everyone loves a good soap love story and this has been one of the best!

I think Kelly should come in third. I agree with Len that her choreography for her freestyle was unoriginal. It was like they took the moves straight from the movie. I expected more and was disappointed. Still, Kelly danced it well and has done well all season to get to the finals. But no, she didn’t get my vote.

I definitely think something is going on with Val and Kelly. Their dances were very good, but I am not sure they will be the winners. I think Shawn and Derek are far better, and have shown that throughout the season. Since I work at DISH on Monday nights, I always have to wait until the morning to watch DWTS. With my DISH Hopper, I can use Auto Hop since DWTS is recorded with the PrimeTime Anytime feature. I get through DWTS in less time, since it skips over the commercials for me, and I still have time to get the kids off to school. Shawn and Derek’s freestyle dance was the best I have seen throughout all the seasons. All of them are amazing dancers, and whoever wins the Mirror Ball trophy definitely deserves it.

As much as I love Kelly & Val and have been rooting for them all season, that freestyle to cheesy “Time of your Life” was not the greatest most orginal thing I’ve ever seen. I think they really needed to come out and do something fast and exciting for their second dance. Just loved Shawn & Derek and hope they take it all; they are thrilling to watch and I smile when I look at their dance routine.

I think Kelly and Val deserve to win. Their attraction is real but I think they’re playing it up for the camera. After this is over, they’ll tell everyone they’re just friends. Shawn’s performance was a mish mash of all of her dances and the same old, same old, not impressed by her at all.

I am so proud of the journey that has taken Kelly and Val to the finals, which they so deserve, and I think they make an adorable couple, and hope that they are, but I think they are truly good friends. Either way, what happens off the dance floor is their business, but I wish them much good luck tonight!!!! I would love to see them win, but I do think Melissa and Tony were also incredible.

I loved Kelly and Val last night, and voted for them. I did not like the freestyle dances that were done by the other two contenders. for the trophy!

unfortunately I didn’t get to vote!! I got home at 12:25AM so couldn’t phone vote, tried to vote on line but kept getting busy server messages… and same thing this morning and then got ‘voting is over’

why do they only do phone voting during the show and 1 hour after? It’s not like you can vote more than what they allow you to, and in my time zone that phone voting is over while the show still on (after the rest of you go to fall back time), which is crappy.

but I wanted to give Melissa all of my votes!! I think she was the best dancer, of these three, Shawn was the best athlete/acrobat… Kelly and Val deal is nauseating and their dancing/following instructions/and going all out on freestyle was hit and miss. That flaminco was paso double – even I could tell that, and copying a dirt dance wasn’t very original, it was nice, but now like “wow! they took a chance and did great” That’s what Melissa did.

of course, I really thought Gille would be on the final. *sniff* * sniff*

Question: Where does Kelly’s “friend” Heath, fit in during all of this romance on and off stage? He is there every week to support her. If I were him I would think the show that Vally are putting on in front of the cameras is just a little too much too take.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
