Gary - Thanks for being the first online source for pics of the show. I saw it Wed. night for the swell dress rehearsal & had a ball. Kelli reinterprets the role with her calling card sweet sincerity but still possesses enough of the sharp-tongued comedienne edge to make me think of her as a young Dorothy Loudon during her 11 o'clock "I'm Going Back" number.

Kerry Ellis Teams Up with Alfie Boe for New Album 2010/11/16
Posted: 11/18/2010
Peter, Warwick, UK - Kerry performed on the BBC televised Festival of Remembrance from the Royal Albert Hall in London on November 13 attended by the Queen and the royal family. She sang "Anthem" from the musical Chess, accompanied by the legendary Brian May of Queen. The song is in two halves, the first part is soft and gentle, and the second half is rousing and passionate, and Kerry really gave it her all. In the middle was a brilliant solo from Brian with footage of soldiers in Afghanistan projected on the screens behind him. Their performance was mesmerising and also very moving. They have worked together a number of times before including the Royal Variety show in 2008, attended by the Queen. Brian produced and performed on Kerry's recently released album "Anthems". Let's hope we see a lot more of them performing together - two great artists who compliment each other perfectly.

Posted: 11/18/2010
JEAN - I AGREE WITH THE PEOPLE WHO ARE OUTRGED AND THERE ARE MANY MORE THAN THOSE WHO WRITE IN. THERE IS ;NO COMPARISON BETWEN BRANDY AS A DANCER AND BRISTOL. THE FACT THAT BRANDY GOT VOTED OFF PROVES THERE IS SOMETHING AWRY IN THE VOTING SYSTEM. IT IS A DISGRACE AND EMBARASSMENT TO ABC TO LET SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPEN. OBVIOUSLY THE BRISTOL VOTERS VOTED OVER AND OVER AGAIN, USING MULTIPLE PHONES TO MAKE SURE BRISTOL STAYED IN THE COMPETITION. QUALITIFCATIONS OBVIOSLY DID NOT COUNT LAST NIGHT; WHO IS THE POLTICIAN OUT FOR VOTES, BRISTOL OR HER MOTHER; LAST NIGHT IT WAS HARD TO TELL. ABC HAS TO TAKE SOME RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS MISSCARRIAGE OF FAIRNESS AND JUSTICE, OR MANY PERSONS, INCLUDING MYSELF STILL STOP WATCHING THE SHOW.

Mary - Bristol Palin should br graceful enough to know that she is not good at dancing and bow out and let Brandy back on the final show. I could never figure out how they got her on the show to begin with, as she is no star, never been on a show, only with her no account mother, and I don't care if she is a republican or a democrat, she should have been voted out by the 3rd show.

Michelle Nicastro Passes Away at 50 2010/11/05
Posted: 11/17/2010
Yvette Stern - My contact with Michelle was brief, but memorable. As a bride-to-be, she purchased her wedding invitations and calligraphy services from me. All my clients have been wonderful -- but Michelle was especially gracious. She mentioned that she was an actor only in passing -- probably because Ernest Borgnine's personal assistant stopped by to pick up an order. Apparently, Michelle and Ernest had worked together in the past, so the conversation briefly turned to the Industry. However, it was until I was seated at the Shubert, reading my Les Miserable Playbill, that I discovered that Michelle was in the cast, and in a featured role. Her performance was brilliant. Lesser artists advertise themselves at every turn, yet Michelle had only referenced her KFC commercial when I asked the standard, "Where might I have seen your work?" Such a beautiful, talented, charming, caring young woman. How devastating to learn of her hugely premature passing. I'm truly heartbroken and extend my condolences to her family.

I had stage seating and what a joy to be right there seeing/feeling the emotions expressed by the actors, who are SO well polished. Was just beautiful. And as we speak, I'm about to download the MP3 album of the incredible music. Fifteen thumbs up!!!! You guys are the best. Thank you for a stellar performance. Have a great tour!

Ella - First, when did Bristol become a star. Shame on DWTS for even allowing her on the show. They should have known it would turn into a political circus. People voting, truly aren't voting for her or her talent, lets get real. The sad thing that still lies ahead is, she will probably win. Let's even hope that. Then the credibility of the show will truly go away. I will never watch another season. The same thing happened last season with Donnie Osmond over Mia. Popularity, popularity.

Johari2 - Dancing with the stars is be coming a joke. I called many times for Brandy and I was being thanked for voting for someone else on the show. Your show just loss one viewer and I hope others will follow. I'm a dance teacher and your show is not based on who is the best when someone like Bristol is still on the show. Now if she wins over the other two next week, the show should be taken off the air, OFF THE AIR...

Michele - I don't understand how people can blame Dancing with the Stars for someone leaving the show. It is all run by a voting system and has nothing to do the tv show itself. Yes, it is unfair that good dancers get voted off but the people are the ones that do the voting. The whole point of the show is to take someone who can't dance and watch them improve every week. I think it is unfair to put people on who are good.

The judges need to start looking for a new gig because this gig is going to be up when the viewers don't return next season because of this disgrace season. Go home Bristol to your child,. You are not a celebrity!!!!!

Dave - I have come to this page after seeing the memorial dedication to Ms. Nicastro during the credits from an episode of Mr. Stark's production The Event. Please forgive my voice here, as I come, a stranger. I didn't know her, but you can tell so much about a person by the sound of their voice, and hers is one that fills the air with light and goodness. I am enriched from the few minutes spent here, and can only imagine how wonderful her presence in life must have been for those who were fortunate to share that life with her. I too am one of the fortunate ones, as I share life with a sweet and gentle, but brave and strong woman, who, like Ms. Nicastro, was struck by cancer. I offer the deepest condolences that I are possible from a stranger, not only to her family, who must miss her terribly, but also to the gathering of friends and classmates assembled here to honor her. God bless.

Alvin Hogge - Welcome to the world of competative dance. Many of the comps have been unfairly judged in the past. I myself would have liked to seen Maks win this time as he had a great chance with Brandy a very talented partner. I do feel the show makes fools of the public who seem to believe they have a voice in the results. The show will and has done what ever they feel is good for the show. Drama, scripting, Donnie winning ect. I totally agree with them, its almost like shock radio. They kept us off balance and gave the public much aggravation. they have also gave us amazing entertainment. Not to mention a chance for some hard working dance pro's to make a great living. I love this show. May it have many great years left.

Donna - This show has become a popularity contest, not judgeing the best contestant, rather the most popular. No way should Brandy been eliminated from this show. Yes, Bristol has improved, but not at the cailiber of Brandy. This makes the show look fake and not fair..............I am sure it will loose many viewers after this season!! neldo
