DWTS12 – Selena Gomez & The Scene And OneRepublic To Perform On Dancing With The Stars Results Show

According to a new ABC Press Release, Selena Gomez & The Scene and OneRepublic will perform for this coming Tuesday night’s Result show. Selena Gomez & The Scene will perform their newest single, “Who Says,” accompanied by Mark and Chelsie. OneRepublic will play their hit “All the Right Moves” with the new “Dancing with the Stars” Dance Troupe. The band will also play their newest release, “Good Life,” with Dmitry and Lacey on the dance floor. More details below and at the link.

On Tuesday night, Disney Channel star Selena Gomez & The Scene will perform their newest single, “Who Says,” accompanied on the floor by series pros Mark Ballas and Chelsie Hightower. Also this week, rock sensations OneRepublic will play their smash hit “All the Right Moves” with the “Dancing with the Stars” Dance Troupe in the ballroom. The band will also play their newest release, “Good Life,” with series pro dancers Dmitry Chaplin and Lacey Schwimmer on the floor.

Platinum-selling Disney Channel star Selena Gomez and her band “The Scene” recently launched their new single, “Who Says,” from the upcoming Hollywood Records album, to be released this summer. The video for “Who Says,” which was helmed by award-winning director Chris Applebaum (Rihanna, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey), premiered on Disney Channel last month. “Who Says,” produced by Eman (Whitney Houston, Celine Dion) and co-written by Priscilla Renea (Cheryl Cole, Rihanna), is an up-tempo paean of self-empowerment. The song will be featured on Selena Gomez & The Scene’s third CD, on the heels of their winning this year’s People’s Choice Award for Favorite Breakout Artist. Selena and her band already have a platinum single, two No. 1 Billboard Dance Singles, and two gold-selling, top-ten debuting albums under their belt. Selena’s talent extends beyond music; she is the star of the hit Disney Channel original series “Wizards of Waverly Place” and has starred in a spate of big-screen movies, including “Ramona & Beezus” and upcoming Fox feature film “Monte Carlo” (July 1).

The smash hit rock band OneRepublic began touring in March, and their single “Secrets” remains in the Top 5 at Hot AC Radio. “Secrets” is the second single from OneRepublic’s 2009 album, “Waking Up.” A No. 1 hit on the iTunes chart in Germany, the track claimed the top spot on the iTunes Rock Chart in the U.S. in July. It is OneRepublic’s fourth Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. After seven years together as a band, OneRepublic took the world by storm in 2007 with their debut release, “Dreaming Out Loud.” The album included the smash single “Apologize,” which shattered digital sales and airplay records worldwide, and, along with second single “Stop and Stare,” propelled the album to platinum-plus sales. Their 2009 sophomore set, “Waking Up,” has spawned two singles – “All the Right Moves” and “Secrets” – that have topped the radio charts and sold more than 3.4 million units to date. “Good Life” is their newest release from “Waking Up.”

Dancing with the Stars 2011 Special Guest Music – Dance Troupe and Chris Brown

I sometimes try to list the music that’s used on the DWTS results show. Although, sometimes it’s hard to figure out and sometimes there’s not enough to mess around with the list of music from the DWTS results show. I’ll give it a whirl tonight.

Chris Brown performed the song “Yeah 3x” Yeah 3X - F.A.M.E. (Deluxe Version) with cameo appearance from Bailey (aka B-boy Bailrok) who was part of Future Funk on America’s Got Talent.

Chris Brown performed a laser inspired performance to the song “Forever.” Forever - Forever - Single

A bunch of people on Twitter were complaining about Chris Brown lip syncing and of course there’s the commentary about him not being fit to perform on the show after his various antics. For me, I thought his performance was ok. I was most happy that his performance included a lot of dancing. My least favorite musical guests are those that just get up and sing. I watch a dancing show to watch dance. Chris Brown at least satisfied my need to see some dance with his performance.

Also, what did you think about the new Dancing with the Stars Troupe? Of course, if you’re a regular reader of the site, then you already knew there would be a Dancing with the Stars Troupe since Vogue wrote about it a few weeks ago. Peta was the highlight of the Dance Troupe for me.

The six members of the Dancing with the Stars Dance Troupe performed to Sly and the Family Stone’s song “Dance to the Music” Dance to the Music - Dance to the Music choreographed by Jason Gilkison.

As always, be sure to check out all the music from Dancing with the Stars 2011 including the music from last night’s episode.

DWTS12 – Chris Brown and Toby Keith To Perform On Dancing With The Stars

Extra is reporting Chris Brown is to perform on Dancing With The Stars next Tuesday, March 29. However, there was talk ABC might cancel his appearance after an outburst on Good Morning America yesterday.

While promoting his new album “F.A.M.E.” on “GMA,” the singer seemed calm when answering anchor Robin Roberts’ questions about his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, but afterwards, apparently lost it, ripping off his shirt, picking up a chair and allegedly smashing a window.

8O Ok, I would definitely say he still has some issues. Be sure to take our new Poll below (Thanks Sasa) for what you think will or should happen.

Toby Keith is also slated to perform on the show according to his Twitter page and Taste of Country.

Toby Keith took to his official Twitter page today and posted this message: “Just back from spring break w/ family & heard I’m SINGING ON DWTS.” Even though it sounds like this was sprung upon Keith very suddenly, we are definitely excited to see what he has in store for his performance.

No official word has been released on when Keith will perform, but since the news is coming straight from Keith himself, it sounds like a sure thing. Hmm … we wonder if his daughter Krystal will join him when he hits the ‘DWTS’ stage!

Dancing with the Stars Season 12 Music Suggestions

Before I had the bright idea to start working with amazing DWTS writers like Heidi, Courtney, Vogue and Marianya, Pure DWTS was really all about the music on Dancing with the Stars. Sure, I’d write the occasional blog post talking about DWTS or DWTS news, but nothing compared to what you see on Pure DWTS now.

Despite the growth of Pure DWTS, I still like to do my best listing the Dancing with the Stars music from each season of DWTS. I’m usually a little slow, but I’m planning to post the Dancing with the Stars season 12 music list after each episode of DWTS. In fact, here’s a link where you’ll be able to always see the latest DWTS Season 12 music that’s been posted.

In order to carry on with my DWTS music tradition, here’s my post with some suggestions on possible DWTS season 12 music. Although, this time I decided to switch it up and list the top 15 music on iTunes as possible songs on DWTS. I’m quite sure they’ll use a number of these songs this season.
