Dancing's Kurt Warner: I'm "Dumbfounded" By the Instant Dance

Dancing With The Stars

In case you're wondering, Kurt Warner still doesn't know the difference between flexed knees and bent knees. "I have no idea. I don't even know which one I'm supposed to have!" the Dancing with the Stars contestant tells TVGuide.com nearly a week after judge Len Goodman criticized his knee technique. "Because I'm so tall, Anna [Trebunskaya] always tells me to bend my knees. ... I just listen to her. She tries to focus on the things that are most important." This week, the former Arizona Cardinals quarterback has yet another thing to worry about —the Instant Dance.

Backstage at Dancing With the Stars: Name That Tune?

Dancing With The Stars

If you thought that dancing to iconic TV theme songs on Monday night's Dancing With the Stars would give the performers a leg up because they already knew the music, you'd be wrong. 

In fact, most the Dancing pros — and at least one star — were either too young or living in a foreign country when American television hits such as Bewitched and Hill Street Blues were on the air. "I had no idea what that song was," says pro Cheryl Burke, who was born in 1984 and danced to Hill Street Blues, which aired from 1981-1987... read more

Dancing's Anna Trebunskaya Getting Kurt Warner in the "Music Zone"

Dancing With The Stars

After coming oh-so-close to the Mirrorball trophy twice, Dancing with the Stars' Anna Trebunskaya is ready to go all the way this season with Kurt Warner. "I hope so. It's still a long way to go, but I think we can do it," she tells TVGuide.com. "Kurt's working really hard and has made a lot of strides in the past week alone." That progress was reflected last week, as the retired National Football League quarterback earned unanimous praise from the judges and improved his score two points to 21. Find out what Trebunskaya — who finished second with Jerry Rice and Evan Lysacek in Seasons 2 and 10, respectively — is working on with Warner the most for Monday's storytelling theme and get her thoughts on Bruno Tonioli's harsh critique of Michael Bolton.

Dancing's Evan Lysacek: I'm "Not Upset" That Len Said Nicole Should Win

Evan Lysacek

Dancing with the Stars runner-up Evan Lysacek says he's not disappointed that he doesn't have a Mirrorball trophy to go with his Olympic gold medal. "Anna [Trebunskaya] and I were completely satisfied with the whole season and what we put into it. We didn't leave anything on the table," he tells TVGuide.com. "We wanted to enjoy it and the most important thing of this season, above any trophy or any one dance, is that we were all a family on that show." There are also no hard feelings between him and judge Len Goodman, who declared Nicole Scherzinger a deserving winner before Lysacek performed. See why he's not upset, what happened during his freestyle rehearsal and if he'll keep dancing.

Dancing Finale: Who Will Take Home the Mirrorball Trophy?

Erin Andrews, Evan Lysacek, Nicole Scherzinger

Is the Dancing with the Stars title Nicole Scherzinger's for the taking? The Pussycat Doll has been the odds-on favorite since the beginning of the season, and the odds continue to be on her side as 54 percent of TVGuide.com users tip her to win the Season 10 crown. But a front-runner status doesn't always result in a win (see: Mya, Mel. B), and you can't count out her rivals: Evan Lysacek, who's hot on her heels, and dark horse Erin Andrews.

The final three will face off Monday (8/7c on ABC) with two dances: the freestyle and a ...

Dancing's Anna Trebunskaya: Evan's WALL-E Voice May Get Us into Final

Anna Trebunskaya, Dancing With The Stars

It's been eight long seasons since Anna Trebunskaya last made the semifinals on Dancing with the Stars (she eventually finished second with Jerry Rice in Season 2), but now she's back with Evan Lysacek. "It feels so gratifying, but mostly I'm really happy for Evan because I see how hard he's working and how much he does besides Dancing," Trebunskaya tells TVGuide.com. "He does Stars on Ice and his whole schedule has been crazy, so I'm just happy he's in." But if the Olympic champ wants to make it to the final three, he's going to have to up his performance factor, according to the Dancing pro. See what else Trebunskaya has to say about traveling with Lysacek on Stars on Ice and why we may see more WALL-E impressions from him.

Evan Lysacek "Sacrificing Sleep and Eating" for Dancing

Evan Lysacek

Evan Lysacek has to do a futuristic cha-cha on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, but he doesn't want to look too far ahead after that. "I'm having the time of my life. I'm already starting to dread the morning I wake up and I don't have a new dance to learn and I don't have a performance that night on the ice," the Olympic champ, who's simultaneously touring with Stars on Ice, tells TVGuide.com. "It's really like a family here and it's something I never really had in skating because it's such an individual sport. I'm so glad I'm doing both." Lysacek, who got the season's first perfect score of 30 last week, is doubling up on dances too, as he must also perform a waltz. Does he feel pressure to maintain perfection?

Dancing's Erin Andrews Trying to "Be All Va-Va-Voom"

Dancing with the Stars - Erin Andrews

It's no surprise that Erin Andrews feels unnatural on Dancing with the Stars — not because she has never danced, but because she's a self-described tomboy. "I'm sitting here looking at my face and seeing what all this makeup has done to me. It's like, 'Aaahh!'" she tells TVGuide.com. "There are just some things that you're not used to." The ESPN reporter, who will compete despite receiving death threats, is also not used to playing a character, but is determined to show off some acting skills in Monday's waltz. See who's been helping her out, why Dancing has been a "perfect release" after everything she's been through, and if Maksim Chmerkovskiy really does smell amazing.
