DWTS Pro Tristan MacManus On Meeting Gladys Knight And Plans To Pick Her Brain

Dancing With The Stars pro Tristan MacManus spoke to Radar Online yesterday about how happy he is to be dancing with legendary singer and entertainer Gladys Knight. He hopes she sings during rehearsals as he is an avid music fan anyway. Below are more on his plans in teaching her how to dance and pick her brain. Be sure to read the full story at Radar Online as he talks of his first meeting her as well.

“I am hoping she just starts singing when she comes out on the rehearsal floor, I sing along a lot when I dance, so I hope she doesn’t critique me,” he said bashfully.

“I am definitely going to learn from her and start being a sponge and taking everything in and pick her brain. I have never sung professionally but I love songs and music and I generally sing to myself when I’m in uncomfortable situations.”

While the pro is hoping to learn from his partner we’re sure the Midnight Train To Georgia singer will learn some smooth moves from tripping the light fantastic with the ballroom and Latin dance teacher, who has high expectations for his muse.

“It’s great for me because she is a very passionate performer and that’s something you can’t teach people, if she can put that into her performance every week then it will be unbelievable,” Tristan told RadarOnline.com.
