Pure DWTS 12 – Hanson, The Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block, and Pia Toscano To Perform On Dancing With The Stars

The excitement begins for next week already! It’s a “Guilty Pleasures” theme and on tap to perform are The Backstreet Boys, New Kids On The Block, and Pia Toscano. Details below from The Examiner.

There will be some serious talent on the dancing stage next week when New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) and Backstreet Boys (BSB) come to Dancing with the Stars to perform. The hosts of Dancing with the Stars took a moment at the end of Tuesday’s show to share some serious news that two of the hottest groups on tour would be gracing the stage.

The entertainment for the show doesn’t seem to run dry as week after week celebrities that America is familiar with grace the Dancing with the Stars stage for a knock out entertaining moment. Keeping the show exciting and always topical, the groups NKOTB and BSB will definitely have fans tuning in.

This is definitely one time the show executives don’t want to be asking if the public would rather see NKOTB and BSB or Pia Toscano as the answer would be very obvious.

Another Examiner article is reporting Hanson will be performing as well.

The announcement of the band hadn’t been officially shared by anyone from the show until the warm up comedian posted on his fan stream the lineup for next week. Cory Almeida who interacts with the crowd and is a comedian for Dancing with the Stars as well as American Idol posted online the upcoming guests including the surprise. Everyone is excited, even the Hanson fans.

According to People, Mark and Karina will be dancing to Pia’s performance.

“I can’t tell you the song, but it will probably be something slow and romantic,” said Ballas, who will be dancing with fellow pro Karina Smirnoff while Toscano sings.

The performance comes on a wave of rumors that the Idol finalist and Dancing pro are dating. The two were most recently spotted together this past Monday, when Toscano attended Ballas’s concert at The Mint in Los Angeles.

While Ballas will not be joining her at the mic next week, the performance is still something he says he is “looking forward to.”

“Pia … will be amazing,” Ballas said. “She is a ridiculously amazing vocalist.”

I’m excited on this entertainment and theme and I am hoping someone will dance to KC & The Sunshine Band. :)
