'Dancing With the Stars': Best freestyle ever?

Tonight’s season 17 performance finale is also the dreaded (by pros) and revered (by fans) Freestyle Round — when all bets are OFF, weirder costumes than usual are barely ON, and the smoke machine is OUT to sweep up as much glittery blood, sweat, and tears it can wrap its chemically enhanced tendrils around. (What?!?) The point is, Dancing With the Stars freestyles are important. In most seasons, the couple with the best freestyle wins the Coveted Mirrorball Trophy the next night.

So which DWTS couple has had the best freestyle EVER? Dance pros Derek Hough, Karina Smirnoff, Peta Murgatroyd, Mark Ballas, Emma Slater, and Sasha Farber told EW the freestyles they remember most fondly. See the picks of Our Pros and a few of mine, then name your own favorites below!  READ FULL STORY

Kat Robichaud's 'The Voice' exit Q&A: 'I know it's not the end for me'

When we caught up with coach Cee Lo Green’s glam rockette Kat Robichaud, who was one of two contestants eliminated on Tuesday’s episode of The Voice, she was just as feisty on the phone as she was on stage. She high-kicked, snarled, and crowd-surfed her way to make it to the top ten, in no small part due to her production team. “They’ve never once told me, ‘No, we can’t do that,’” she said.

As the first winner of the Twitter instant save, Robichaud wasn’t bitter that she wasn’t saved again by voters. “I know it’s not the end for me. The whole friggin’ reason I went on this show is to better my career. So this is the jumping-off point.”

Read on for our Q&A with the high-kicking Kat, in which she talks about how Cee Lo orchestrated her performance of Pat Benatar’s “We Belong,” her Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman connection, and her plans for the future.

'Dancing With the Stars': Maks is back!

Former pro and current scruff-less stranger Maksim “This Is My Show” Chmerkovskiy returned to the ballroom to guest-judge tonight’s season 17 semifinals. The stage directors wisely nestled Maks’ prize-winning buns between between Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli, allowing for prime reaction shots to Grumpy and Dopey along with minimal splash-annoyance from Weepy (Carrie Ann Inaba) two seats away.

See a collection of Maks’ best visual moments below….
