DWTS Mark Ballas Performs A Special Live Acoustic Performance At The Grove And Will Also Be Performing At 26th Annual Imagen Awards

Yesterday, Mark paid The Grove in Hollywood a little visit. He gave them an interview and sang. He talks of his three favorite dream partners for Dancing With The Stars again….Jennifer Aniston, Ellen Degeneres, and Pippa Middleton (this one always gets a lot of ewws and ahhs). He gives hints for his next single. He also promotes Pia Toscano and a possible collaboration (this is where it gets a little hard to stomach?). Anyway, Mark’s performance isn’t bad. I’ll give him that. Check it out!

Thanks to Vin for sending this link to us!!!

Also, for those who are fans to Mark musically, he will be performing at the 26th Annual Imagen Awards on August 12th at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. He will also be presenting an award.

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 .

Mark Ballas Endorses Same Sex Couple Dancing On Dancing With The Stars (TAKE POLL)

Mark Ballas tells Rob Shuter of Pop Eater that even though there are some disadvantages, he’s fine if he were to get partnered with a male partner on Dancing With The Stars. Rob mentions the possibility of Ricky Martin dancing with him which Mark is open too. Mark also mentions another dream partner >>> PIPPA MIDDLETON!! Now, that would be a cool person to get on the show as well. More below and at the link.

“We have eight male professional dancers and one is gay,” Mark tells me. “I never dealt with the stigma, I was at a performing arts school, so it wasn’t an issue. I always thought if I were ever confronted about it, I’d just say, “Well, while you’re on the football field with a bunch of dudes, I’ll be dancing with a bunch of girls.”

Mark says straight men that are reluctant or just generally scoff at the idea of dancing should break out of their comfort zone.

“It doesn’t make sense that men wouldn’t want to dance,” he says. “How can you not want to dance with your girl? How can you not want to do that?”

Mark tells me that his first choice of celebrity dance partner next season would be Royal sister, Pippa Middleton, but would be totally fine with the idea of being the first American cast member to dance with a same sex partner.

“I would be totally cool with it,” Mark tells me. “There are other competitions where they have same sex couples. I’d support it. There is a slight inherent disadvantage. Two girls and two men just can’t move like a man and a woman. But you can try.”

So what about if he was partnered with Ricky Martin next season, “I’d be down!” says Mark.

So, what do you think? I’d love to see Ricky Martin dance on the show too…even if it’s with a male partner. This article makes me wonder if the show isn’t seriously considering the idea of a same sex couple dancing for next Season? If so, would you be game? Vote in our new Poll below if interested.
