Guys, I'm sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong thread, but I just found out that Amber will be on Dancing with the Stars, partnered with Derek Hough (whom I absolutely loathe, but can't deny that he can drag anyone with a pulse to the finals). I'm just kind of floored by this and I don't know why.

Wait I thought Dancing With the Stars was pairing celebrities with real ballroom dancers? I know supreficially that Hough is some sort of "celeb", his face I recognize, but is he a real dancer?

He is a professional dancer and a very good one, been with  the show since it started 6 years ago. So many of the professional dancers on DWTS have  become mini "celebs" in their own right.  His sister Julianne Hough, for example,  branched out as a singer/actress (the movie "Footloose")  and has been romantically linked with Ryan Seacrest.  

DWS has a bit of controversy because some of the "name"  dancers seem to be paired up  a lot with the clearly better or more natural dancers among the celebrities, Derek especially.  He's "won" the most.   Amber is plus sized but she's a good mover so I'm genuinely curious how she will do.  Her "Glee" fanbase should hold her in good stead through the first rounds since audience voting is crucial to stay on the show.

I'm so glad she was paired up with Derek Hough, he's my favorite one. Not only because I believe he's a charming guy, but also because he's a good dancer. So I wish the best to Amber Smile and for me it would be amazing if she's the winner

To me, Derek Hough is like Darren Criss, if Darren Criss was as talented as everyone keeps insisting that he is. He joined DWTS a couple of seasons in, caused a sensation, supplanted the established cast, started getting the best celebrities, tongue-baths from the judges, etc. The thing is, he is a brilliant dancer, and far and away the best choreographer on the show. He once got a convicted felon all the way to the semi-finals. He won with Nicole Scherzinger. Nicole Scherzinger! Is there anyone out there who doesn't just hate Nicole Scherzinger on principal? You tube some of his dances if you have the chance. His 50's style paso with Nicole is the best thing DWtS has ever done.

As much as he rubs me the wrong way, Amber is lucky to have him. She's got her glee fanbase, but he's got one too; and, if you combine them, they could easily make the finals.

I wonder if Chris will go to the filming (allowing us to see him in the audience). It would be great moral support for her if her glee friends showed up to cheer her on.

The controversy with Derek is that many grumble he gets more than  his share of the "better" celebrity contestants.  He's won the most of any Dancer on the show so it raises eyebrows when he's paired with the relative ringers among the contestants.  Harry Shum says that Amber is among the best non professional dancers of the Glee performers and she's obviously used to doing choreography on the fly. So I expect Derek and Amber to be a good fit.

I do hope Chris shows up in the audience.  Him and Amber seem pretty tight.

I know nothing about DWTS as I have always found such shows kind of dumb (we had a similar one here in Serbia - people that need money for various causes would be paired with a celebrity - actors, singers, newscasters, politicians ad battle it out).

Anyway, Amber looks positively gorgeous. She is really glowing the past year or so. Girl never looked better.

I was surprised to see Amber partnered with Derek. I'm not a big fan of his dancing, But he's definitely one of the best teachers on the show. I remember when he was on the show with Jenny Garth. Improvement in her dancing from the beginning to the end was amazing. They must have high hopes for Amber to take paired her with Derek.

Yes, Derek always gets good partners.

Personally I think this is a smart move for Amber, she is a good dancer and she looks stunning these days.  DWTW actually has higher Demo ratings then Glee  and a huge GA...it can get up to 15-17 million people watching for it's top shows., something Glee wishes it had.

I'm hoping that Amber's visibility on DWTW is something that will help push the release of her album.  I saw the mix of celebrities this time and there are some interesting people.   People joke about how only " hasbeens" go on DWTS but that's not necessarily true.

Amber's experience in having to learn quick choreography on Glee will land her in good stead for this gig. I think alot of the GA are going to see a side of her they didn't know know about, they probably just think of her as the girl who sang on Glee.  Just thrilled for her.

I first thought it is a very bad move, but just from my tumblr, Amber seems to receive a lot of media attention. So I am very happy for her and wish her best of luck for the run. I most certainly hope her dances will be uploaded on Youtube as I'd like to see them. Overall, I really hope it gives her a great platform to promote her album (that will hopefully released soon) and all the best in general. She seems to be such a sweet person and hope she won't be one of the Glee stars, that disappear once she is off the show.

msamberpriley Sooo the security that escorted me to my car was FIIIIIIINE!
Please dont' misundertand, I think she's beautiful regardless, but Amber has really dramatically been losing weight.  She's into a week of DWTS and after a month of that show we'll hardly recognize her, just saying.

Yeah, DTWS does seem to act as a super-diet, doesn't it?

I loathe how in the music business it's as much how you "look" as how you sound. That is why I find Adele so refreshing.

Jennifer Hudson lost tons of weight, so I'm wondering if a "thinner" Amber Riley will help to get her album released as far as marketing. I hate the perception behind this, but the reality of the music world is that it's so much about image. Amber is gorgeous as she is, so that's why it really really annoys me.

^Same here.

On the one hand I marvel at how good Amber looks now that she lost some weight, but on the other hand I think she looked gorgeous before as well.
And I hate the slim mould that the music/entertainment industry wants to force everyone in (or reject for not fitting in it), especially women.

I know I lost some gigs and roles because I'm not a size 2. I even once saw an audition report of some judges that had put me as the best of the singers that auditioned, but I got a negative mention because of my weight (and I wasn't even that much overweight, less than the way Amber looks now). All the parts went to slim girls (and it wasn't as if being slim was necessary for some of those parts), but they did offer me to sing 'back-up' behind the curtain of the stage, which I of course gracefully refused. vexe 


Adele is a good role model, but even with her 9 out of 10 articles about her mention something like "well-covered" "fully figured" when they describe/introduce her. I mean..... get over it already. dryy
