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.

Mark Ballas And BC Jean Talk On Their Wedding Plans, Their New EP, Touring, And More

In a new interview with Celebrity café, Mark Ballas and BC Jean talk on their new EP and Tour this summer. They are ready to hit the road and have fun. They also talked on their wedding plans and much more.

“I want to do an outdoor wedding, but we’ll have to see if it’s the right vibe,” BC Jean said about their upcoming nuptials.

Due to their entertaining talent, the couple and band duo may be performing at the wedding.

Ballas said, “Knowing me, I’ll end up on stage. I know it’s going to be a hell of a dance party this year.”

“We’ll probably have a lot of friends who will want to perform and get up there,” BC Jean said.

When it comes to the wedding party, rumors have surfaced that Derek Hough will be Mark Ballas’ best man. The two grew up together, but Mark kept his plans under wraps. Fingers crossed for you Derek!

Getting married is not the only venture in Ballas and Jean’s relationship. They’re both in a band called Alexander Jean, whose EP is out on iTunes Friday June 3.

“We just left performing on Live with Kelly which was incredible,” Ballas said about their performance of the new track titled, “Thief.”

“We’re going on tour this summer it’s called the Head High Tour and our first date is on June 17. It will be in Santa Ana,” Ballas said.

“We’re going be out on the road for a little over a month. We’re just looking forward playing a different city, touring around, meeting the fans, and getting to share our music with everybody. It’s been a really great ride since we released “Roses and Violets” last year. The song did so well,” he continued.

BC describes their genre as pop, soul, and rock. She said, “The album has a lot of cool elements to it it’s hard to categorize it.”

The 30-year-old previous DWTS champion and recently runner up, has a lot going for him in 2016, including a wedding, band tour, and non-smoking campaign, all with fiancée BC Jean by his side.

Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas Vacations With BC Jean In Hawaii

Some of the pros of Dancing With The Stars are taking some wonderful time off from the show. Mark Ballas and fiancé BC Jean went to Hawaii. Read below for what he said about it. #AWWwwMoment

5 days ago my fiancé @bcjean woke me up at 6am & told me to get up & be ready to leave the house in 20 minutes. I was so exhausted and a little resistant, but she told me I didn't have a choice. So, I rolled out of bed, got in the shower & was dressed in 15 minutes. The next words out of her mouth were "I packed for you", as she gestured to my big suitcase, and before I knew it we were in an uber headed to an unknown destination. The hour long car ride had me confused, guessing the entire time as to where we were going. Then we pulled up to LAX airport, but it wasn't until she checked us in and handed me my boarding pass did I know exactly what was going on. She said "I'm taking you to Maui for your 30th birthday to swim with the turtles, relax, recover and think about nothing." I looked down at the ticket and it said Maui on it.. I was in utter disbelief. Fast forward 7 hours later we immediately started 5 of the best days I have ever had, beginning with a helicopter ride straight after landing on Hawaiian soil. Our adventures continued with scuba diving, road tripping, laying out, fantastic dinners, enjoying nature and unforgettable scenery. Lastly….. I finally got to check off a bucket list item of mine which was swimming with the turtles 🐢 I feel completely rested, healed & rejuvenated. I can't thank my lovely fiancé enough. I wish we didn't have to go back tmrw. This has been the best vacation together yet & I can't wait for more. I love you more & more every day.. I needed this more than you know.. Or I guess you did know 😉 I love you.
