Wow, aren’t these some great takes of Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani and his wife Lina, and Cheryl Burke?! The four represented Dancing With The Stars in fine form at the 2012 ESPY Awards last night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California. You can see more fun photos of them at Zimbio Pictures. Gorgeous! What do you think?
Another special mention: Congrats to Tony! He and his team won the ESPY Golf tournament held on Tuesday which helped to raise $1 Million dollars to fight Cancer. You can read all about it and see a picture here.
UPDATE: Cheryl and Tony chatted with People Magazine last night about their cast wishes for the All Stars and mixing up the original pairings. More below. Cheryl was also trying to recuit celebs for Season 16. You can read more on that at the link.
“I would love to see winners, finalists and controversial characters come back,” Burke, 28, told PEOPLE at Wednesday’s ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.
“Every season there are those one or two contestants who really stand out,” she said. “If we have a mixture of winners, people switching partners, maybe I would be with my original partner, or Karina [Smirnoff] would be with her original partner, but having it mixed and matched, would be really interesting.”
Asked which of his partners he’d like to see back on the show, Dovolani, 38, had trouble choosing.
“Oh, my goodness. I would say, Stacy Keibler, Melissa Rycroft. And Susan Lucci was such a class act,” he said. “And with Marissa Jaret Winokur I laughed the entire time. But I’d be happy with anyone, because I had fun with every single one of my celebrities.”
