From tackling some of the most iconic dance numbers of all time from Michael Jackson to Patrick Swayze, now this little boy named Charlie takes on “The Carlton”. Below is some footage from The Queen Latifah Show courtesy of People.
Wow, what fantastic shots of the cast of Dancing With The Stars in the rehearsal parking lot. You can see them dancing around and posing for the paparazzi at the Daily Mail. Check out Emma and Michael especially. Let’s hope they bring some of THAT to their new performance. Witney and Alfonso are looking fine fine too.
And who remembers this gem from Dancing With The Stars Season 16? One of the best commercials ever for the show in my opinion. #FeelTheMoment and three more days until show time, Dancettes!
Michael Waltrip tells Crash.net that the pressure is on for he and Emma to put together a dance that will get them great scores so he can continue to keep dancing….and that is just what he’s doing. Here is more….
Now predominantly sticking to his role as team co-owner of Michael Waltrip Racing and working as part of FoxSports commentary team for the weekend’s NASCAR events, the 51-year-old now finds himself having to find time to wear two extra hats. Not only is he driving the teams’ #66 entry out on Sunday in Alabama, but he’ll also be once again showing his moves on the dance-floor some 24 hours later in Los Angeles as part of the celebrity line-up on ABC television’s Dancing with the Stars competition, which is currently in its sixth week.
Maybe Waltrip hadn’t expected to survive this long into the show’s run with dance partner Emma Slater, and had thought that he would have been freed up in plenty of time to concentrate on the driving. But that doesn’t mean he intends to slack off in either role this weekend.
“My time on Dancing with the Stars has been an incredible experience. It is obviously fun, but also a lot of hard work,” he said. “When I get a free moment from the car and my television responsibilities, I am going to go dance with Emma and work on our dance.
“I am disappointed we didn’t get better scores [last] week because I thought we had a really fun dance,” he said. “I think it was entertaining, it was everything I had hoped it would be but we got terrible scores. The pressure is on Emma and I to put together a dance that will get us great scores so I can continue to keep dancing. That is exactly what I plan on doing.”
Waltrip added that he felt his appearance on the prime time TV show was managing to have a positive effect on drawing a new audience into trying out NASCAR racing. “As an industry, we have always tried to find ways to get in the mainstream conversation. When 15 million people watch me outside of my comfort zone every week, I would say we definitely are getting in the conversation!”
