Sharna Burgess and James Hinchcliffe were interviewed on KTLA this morning. They are so cute as always as they talk on their fun journey together…
Sharna Burgess has written a new blog at TV Guide. She couldn’t be more proud of her Dancing With The Stars partner James Hinchcliffe and their dance last night. Now they are about to find out who will be eliminated and she’s sad thinking about it. Here is more….
I could not be more proud of James and I as a team for what we were able to do in such a short space time. We only had a day and a half to get this dance together and on top of that, we had some added complications. We were supposed to do a specific scene from The Walking Dead, which had been cleared by the network, and then late on Tuesday AMC pulled clearance on the song! So most of my Tuesday was spent trying to find either a new song with a new dance style, or another TV scene that had Paso Doble. All of which were impossible to find, given the time that we had! In the end,we found a song that sounded like The Walking Dead and we were able to do something that was inspired by the show.
I watched it back and I feel like James absolutely killed it. He was such a dominating male role in that number. Especially with three very tall, fantastic dancers dancing next to him. I still on Tuesday have no idea what our dance is for this coming week, but we are headed into our results show right now to find out who is going home first. It is really sad to think that the eliminations are beginning and we’re going to start losing people. It always sucks to say goodbye to anyone that is a part of this cast and this family, however I think we all grew a lot closer because of the things that happened last week. In a weird way, all of that brought us all closer. I do not want to see anyone go home. I certainly do not want to see Ryan go home, but I know that that is the name of the game. Hopefully James and I did enough last week and this week to be able to stay on for a bit and win fans’ votes, and ultimately take it all the way.
To read more from Sharna, see TV Guide.
If you go the The Indy Channel, you can see a new video interview with James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess. He’s pulling double duty, but, he’s excited for his Paso Doble. More at the link.
Burgess said she’s trying to keep herself and Hinchliffe focused on the task ahead, even though they came out of the first week tied for first place.
“I just want to keep us focused on us and week-to-week doing the best job we can do, but it’s pretty hard to ignore the chatter and hearing people say he’s a contender for the finals, for the Mirrorball,” Burgess said. “They’re all very big words and very big things to live up to.”
