Mary Murphy Says Chelsea Kane Should Win Dancing With the Stars

Mary Murphy is the ultimate ballroom dance authority, so when she speaks (er screams, rather), we listen. What's our fave So You Think You Can Dance judge gabbing about these days? Dancing With the Stars, of course. According to Mary, there's a good chance the most technical dancer in the competition may be overlooked. "I definitely think Chelsea [should win]," she told Zap2It.

Chris Jericho Felt Like a 'King' During Classical Night on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Exclusive: Pro wrestler Chris Jericho guest blogs about how a song saved 'Dancing With the Stars' classical-music night for him. For the first time ever on 'Dancing With the Stars,' it was Classical Week, which meant that all the dances were performed in front of a 46-piece symphony orchestra. When I first heard about the concept, I have to admit that I wasn't overly excited. I mean, I appreciate the Beethovens and Tchaikovskys of the world, but I didn't know how I was supposed to dance the passionate paso doble to a song that had no words or drums! It was with great hesitation that I asked partner Cheryl Burke to play me the song to which we would be performing. But as the music unfolded, it was with great joy that I realized I knew the song and had heard it 100 times before: It was 'Hall of the Mountain King' by Savatage.

'Dancing with the Stars': Jennifer Hudson has us 'Feeling Good'

Jennifer Hudson can sing. And that really stands out on a dance competition show. The "Idol" contestant turned Oscar winner performed two songs from her new album "I Remember Me" on Tuesday's "Dancing with the Stars."First, Hudson -- totally kicking it in a fab purple mini dress and a pair of matching heels -- belted out the up-tempo "Don't Look Down" as Karina Smirnoff and Louis Van Amstel did their best to distract us. It didn't work. J-Hud had us at hello.Later in the show, she was back -- still in the purple frock (points for no diva-esque costume change) -- to sing "Feeling Good," a retro-y big band number that slowed down the pace and has us ready to download "I Remember Me."...
