But, she’s “competitive” and a “go getter”. Take a look and let us know what you think?
Hmmm….she looks better than I first thought she would be.
ETA: Tony was also interviewed by That’s Your Reality. Below are a few things he talked about. Be sure to read the link for more.
The bar is set high for Tony, who won Season 15 with Melissa Rycroft. The pro said that since his All Stars win, he feels like a huge weight has been lifted off of him. “It’s hard to go season to season and see some of the same people win over and over. I’ve learned something with each and every one of my partners but I gotta tell you, it felt good to win,” he told us.
Whether NeNe and Tony will have to change partners remains to be seen but with or without him, he feels that her chances in the competition are looking good. “I think she’s got what it takes. She works hard, she’s got soul, she hears music beautifully and any time she’s hit a rough patch in rehearsals, she prevails by working hard, asking the right questions, and wanting it. I can’t wait for America to see what she’s got!”
For some reason I am having issues hearing this interview. I hope none of you won’t? Anyway, below is Peta and James on KTLA this morning…. Read more..
Well, the producers haven’t given much new info regarding the switch – likely because they don’t know – but I do read it as one week. As you might imagine, however, it’s the second paragraph that has me most interested. :-) Thanks to Kaitlyn for sending this to me. From the ABC Press Release:
“Episode 1801” — “Dancing with the Stars” is back, and for the first time ever the show will premiere with a massive opening number featuring all pro dancers as they perform live with musical guest Jason Derulo. Derulo will sing his mega hit song “Talk Dirty,” marking the first time ever a musical guest has accompanied a season’s opening number. Each couple will then perform a Cha Cha, Foxtrot or Contemporary routine, vying for America’s vote. The two-hour season premiere begins MONDAY, MARCH 17 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network
This season, “Macy’s Stars of Dance” returns to “Dancing with the Stars” with creative oversight by Emmy® Award-winning Choreographer and Pro Dancer, Derek Hough. “Macy’s Stars of Dance” showcases some of the best choreography and performers from all different styles of dance, and gives them the opportunity to perform in front of a national audience.
As previously announced on “Good Morning America”, the competition will feature a new game-changing twist called “The Switch Up.” For the first time ever, America will be given the power to vote and change celebrities and professional dance pairings. This new rule will affect all couples as they will be required to switch partners at one point in the season. Never before have dance partnerships been split up during the course of competition.
