Remember when Mark Ballas And BC Jean posted the coolest “behind the scenes” video of their Head High tour at their Official Alexander Jean You Tube (if you don’t, see here). Well below is Part 2. I can’t get enough of these two.
Last night was the last show for Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas’ and BC Jean’s “Head High” tour. Dancing With The Stars Keo Motsepe, Allison Holker attended as well as Bethany Mota. Casey Abrams also made a special appearance (omg, does he have wicked hair now or what? 8O). Shirley Ballas was there too. Below are some photos and videos (be sure to click “read more” as there are lots). Let’s hope the “King and Queen of Hearts” tour again real soon!!

Mark Ballas And BC Jean posted the coolest “behind the scenes” video of their Head High tour at their Official Alexander Jean You Tube. Check this out. It’s so awesome.
For tickets to see the “Head High” show, go here.
Mark Ballas And BC Jean talked with the Salt Lake Tribune all about their music and relationship. Read below how Mark says dancing has helped his music evolve and how their tour has made him and BC even closer.
“We just had a natural chemistry,” Ballas said, prompting them to start writing together. Their first song, “Head High,” became the title track of their EP and the title of their tour.
“We just found that it was a unique sound,” Jean said. “Nothing forced.”
While Ballas may be best known for his dancing, music is nothing new for him. He’s been playing the guitar and the drums since he was a kid, along with writing, arranging and producing.
He resists the idea that his success on “Dancing with the Stars” — he’s performed on 14 seasons and won twice — should in any way pigeonhole him as a dancer. Or, worse yet, leave the impression that he’s just dabbling in music.
“This is what I do. This is not a vanity project of any kind,” he said. “The other stuff has nothing to do with this at all. If anything, it makes me stronger as a musician.
“When you see us performing live, you can’t deny it. I’ve been playing for 20 years.”
“And,” Jean added, “I can see where his choreographer ability and his dance ability is only strengthening his music.”
Ballas and Jean are touring as a duo — just the two of them onstage, but he engineers the loop station, creating a much larger sound.
“You’d think there’s four or five guys up there,” Jean said. “It’s pretty cool that the sound is that big with just two people up there.”

Coming up on Thursday, July 14th, is the nominations for the 2016 Emmy Awards. Question: Which dances or performances from Dancing With The Stars do you think should be nominated? Keep in mind that ALL of Dancing With The Stars Season 21 and Season 22 are eligible for an Emmy Award (May 2nd was the deadline, but, we think there are exceptions to the rule for shows and performances that take place until May 31st). So, we’re assuming all of season 22 is eligible, but we could be wrong?). If you’d like to read the rules and procedures for the 2016 Emmy Awards, you can do so at Emmys.com. So, with all that said, let us know in comments for which dances you think should be nominated. You can also include dances and performances from other TV shows or specials if you like. Below are our predictions: Read more..
