Studies have shown that Hidden Gems of the Week, EW.com’s collection of reader-submitted ridiculata, is the best way to enjoy Dancing With the Stars without ever having to turn it on. It’s a visual feast of sparkles, fringe, and stunning awkwardness. Ready to go down the rabbit hole? Behold this bountiful smattering of Visible Gems!
MOST VALUABLE GEM (MVG) OF THE WEEK: ‘GROOVE IS IN THE JEALOUS HEART’ EDITION
“One of my favorite moments: During Tony’s and Chynna’s dance, there’s a long shot and a woman in pink and black is in the front row. She looks NOT pleased that Chynna’s dancing with her man. A STRONG case of Chynna Envy.” —LAG Award Winner
“Oooh, that is her! A couple of times the camera caught her, the lighting made it look like she was wearing blue zinc all over her nose.” —orville, endorsed by kfran
“Did Nancy Grace *really* just refuse to play along with the wave? Come on Nance–it’s the world of ridiculousness. You gotta play along with every silly, sequin-covered moment.” —orville, endorsed by Kevin M. Kawa, Anthony
LIFE-AFFIRMING GEM (LAG) OF THE WEEK:
“I urge the powers that be at Dancing with the Stars to come up with a “hidden gem” icon to float over any and all future nip slips. That shot of the deadpan audience was mystifiying, creepy and hilarious at the same time. Annie, you have to have some pull there. If not a hidden gem icon, then a flash of cover up fringe or something. Maybe a mini-Mirrorball!” —Christy, endorsed by Alix, Fred, Lorie, fg, Kim, Greenscreen
Thank you, DANCMSTRs one and all, for a fabulous heap of gems!
