Mark Ballas And BC Jean Talk On Their New Music, DWTS, And More In New Interview

Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas and BC Jean were interviewed by Parade. They ask them about their new music and how Mark quit smoking. Below they ask them about Dancing With The Stars and one of the best dances of the season.

Speaking of dancing, congratulations on a great season of Dancing With the Stars. Looking back on this past season, what were some of the highlights?

MB: It was just fun. You know, I really enjoyed the process. My partner was incredibly talented, naturally gifted and talented, which allowed me to really guide creatively, you know, and I think I kind of produced some of my best work yet, and I just really enjoyed it.

For a lot of fans, a favorite moment was when BC sang “Over the Rainbow” for the final dance. What was that moment like for you guys?

BC: It was such a special moment all around. I think that you saw that through Mark’s emotions after he performed. You couldn’t see me afterward, but he choked up, I choked up, it was definitely just special, you know? They had come so far and worked so hard…and that song is just so beautiful, and that moment. I was just lucky to be a part of it.

MB: Yeah, I mean, you come so far, you work so hard, and to be able to do a dance with that much emotion behind it, and feeling, and a story, and also to have your fiancée singing one of the most iconic songs I think of all time. I don’t know what happened, I got a little choked up there! It was an awesome moment, very different from anything I’ve experienced.

More at Parade.

Dancing With The Stars Peta Murgartroyd and Maks Chmerkovksiy Chat On Their Wedding And More

Dancing With The Stars Peta Murgartroyd and Maks Chmerkovksiy talked with E Online today about their wedding plans, babies, and lots more. Videos below. So cute!

The couple tell E! News they’re planning to wed in New York City in July 2017, which gives them some time to plan, but there’s still a lot to get done. “It’s a while away, so we’ve got our location, we’ve got our date set, and we haven’t even started doing the guest list yet, but that can wait a little bit,” Peta told us.

“I can try on some dresses now. I think it’s time to start doing all that and getting a wedding planner.”

And you can definitely expect to see some familiar dancing faces at their ceremony. “We deliberately have it in July so it doesn’t conflict with any of the seasons, so we can bring our past partners and our troupe of dancers and stuff like that,” Peta explained.

PureDWTS Rant: Do We Need To Do More To Help Protect Artists, Dancers, Etc. When They Tour? (RIP Christina Grimmie)

As most of you probably have heard, The Voice’s Christina Grimmie was sadly killed by a gunman at a Meet And Greet Friday night. Our hearts go out to her, her friends and family, fans, and everyone who knew, worked, and loved her. As you might remember, Christina has performed several times on Dancing With The Stars in the past. What a senseless tragedy. Once again, the world mourns for a beautiful and innocent person’s passing and wonders why there aren’t more gun restrictions and help for the mentally ill in this country. Many are also asking why we don’t have more security at venues for our artists in protecting them like we do at airports, etc. Dylan Chambers said it all below for how I feel. Let’s hope TPTB of all the dancing, singing, and entertainment tours coming up now and in the future are prepared to up security because we need to do everything we can to protect our dancers and artists (and us) from being hurt while they bring so much joy, talent, and creativity to the world. Special thanks to Heidi and Dee for our conversation at twitter for the inspiration for this post too. Do you have thoughts on this as well? If so, make them heard in comments. xx

DWTS Julianne Hough Has Purchased Two Dresses For Her Wedding, Wedding Before Year’s End

Just a little fun rumor from the Las Vegas Sun. Not sure it’s true, but they are reporting Julianne Hough has purchased two dresses for her wedding to Brooks Laich. Not only that, the article says Julianne let it slip that the wedding will take place by the end of the year.

“Dancing With the Stars” pro dancer and judge Julianne Hough, who hosted Sunday’s 2016 Miss USA Pageant at T-Mobile Arena alongside Terrence J (“106 & Park”) on Fox, let slip that she has purchased two dresses for her wedding to fiance Toronto Maple Leafs star Brooks Laich.

The onetime Las Vegas resident and sister of “DWTS” pro dancer Derek Hough says she has two outfits selected — one for the ceremony and one for the reception to take place before year’s end.

Awww, I can’t wait for this event. More at the the Las Vegas Sun on other rumors out there. Thanks to Lori for the heads up.
