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!

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Nancy O’Dell and Jewel Out of DWTS – Holly Madison In

I’d been reading rumors about Nancy O’Dell and Jewel being out of Dancing with the Stars. I even posted about Jewel’s injury previously, but it’s now official that both Nancy and Jewel are out of Dancing with the Stars.

Let’s take a look at a number of quotes I found around the web from Jewel and Nancy O’Dell about not being able to compete on Dancing with the Stars.

First a quote from Jewel about her injury and Jewel’s ongoing participation on DWTS.

“I originally thought it was tendinitis or ligament strains,” Jewel said before a concert appearance Thursday night in Highland, Calif. — which she would do sitting down. “It was painful enough for a doctor to put me on cortisone. When I went in for an MRI, it turned out to be something else. I had no idea something like this was possible.”

Jewel’s stress fractures are just below her knees, which had been swelling from a practice regimen of up to eight hours a day. They’ll heal in six to nine weeks, says Jewel, who is using crutches to get around.

“Hopefully I’ll get to sing on the show and come back and (compete) again,” Jewel says.

Now, a quote describing Nancy O’Dell’s injury:

“Beyond disappointment doesn’t even being to describe how I feel about not being able to continue on ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ It has been one of my favorite shows since season one!” O’Dell revealed. “But I have torn the meniscus in my knee in two places, which requires surgery. According to the doctor, one is a ‘significant’ tear and it will require my getting knee surgery within the next couple of weeks.”

Looks like Nancy O’Dell might return to another season of Dancing with the Stars and still enjoyed the short time she did have with Tony:

“DWTS’ was a great experience. I’ll miss working with my partner, Tony Dovolani, and all the other wonderful people on the amazing production that is ‘Dancing With the Stars,’” O’Dell added. “Tony has been an amazing teacher and dance partner and I feel horrible I can’t continue for him… Although short, it was a great experience. I challenged myself to take risk at doing something I had never done before!”

And don’t rule out a possible return to the show somewhere down the line.

“After I have surgery and eight weeks of rehab, my doctor tells me my knee will be back to how it was,” O’Dell said. “So that means if I have the opportunity to go back, I could!”

Dancing with the Stars executive producer Conrad Green said the following about injuries on Dancing with the Stars:

“We’ll re-look next season to limit the training in the early weeks, because I don’t want people to get injured,” he says. The 15-week-long show “is a marathon, not a sprint.”

There have been a number of injuries to stars and the professionals on Dancing with the stars. Among DWTS celebrities injured in previous seasons: Olympic volleyball player Misty May-Treanor (torn Achilles tendon); comic Jeffrey Ross (eye injury); actress Susan Lucci (fractured foot); and actor Cristián de la Fuente (torn arm tendon). Also, Julianne Hough had an operation, Derek Hough was taken to the hospital and Karina Smirnoff had some ankle or back issues if I’m remembering correctly. Seems like there was one other I’m leaving out.

Reports are saying that Holly Madison from Girls Next Door will be one of the replacements, but producers of the show are keeping quiet until the DWTS premiere on Monday. The report says that Bridget Marquardt (Holly’s costar on Girls Next Door) let it slip on live TV. This is what Bridget Marquardt had to say about it:

“I’m so excited for her,” Marquardt — who next stars in a Travel Channel show called Bridget’s Sexiest Beaches — told FOX’s Strategy Room Wednesday.

“She’s wanted to do it for so long,” Marquardt added. “It just never worked with her schedule and Hef was always like ‘I don’t want you to do that,’ and now it’s her time, so I’m really happy for her.”

Jewel and Nancy O’Dell are suppose to be at the premiere. Should be an exciting premiere, but I’ll admit that I’m personally sad that these 2 are off the show. They were 2 of the stars I was most excited to see on the show. They’ll definitely be missed. It will also be interesting to see how the judges score the 2 replacements who will have had less time to practice their dances for the show.

The Dancing with the Stars Premiere’s on Monday!
