James Maslow Writes Of His Relationship With Peta Murgatroyd And New Dance For DWTS Week 2

James Maslow has penned a new blog at Parade.com. He felt good about his performance on Monday night. He also writes of he and Peta’s relationship and how Producers exaggerated it during their package which we all figured so (come on TPTB, keep it real. we aren’t stupid). Also, he writes of the Switch Up dance and what he and Peta are planning for next week which you read about below. Also, watch KIIS FM as they did an interview with them last night that they may post audio for later.

When it comes to the big switch they keep talking about, they tell us very little, so I’m not sure if it’s going to happen next week. They’ve described multiple different scenarios where we can choose to go back to our partner if we like or that could be a fan vote as well. I hope that I have the choice to go back to Peta because we’ve worked really hard together already; we’ve established a team and I don’t want to start over with somebody else. Please don’t take this out of context in a dating sense, but I don’t want to shun Peta with some other dancer. She’s spending her time and effort to understand me, it’s like a little relationship that you’re developing throughout this for all of the contestants.

As for next week, I think the salsa is cool and I’m excited to do the second dance and do something different than the foxtrot. I’m so sick of frame! I started to appreciate it more than ever. My back is sore, let’s do something that’s not as upper-body demanding. I think if I can take anything away from the first performance it’s as soon as I forgot about the crowd, just as if I was performing on tour, I started having fun and people noticed. Even if the dance wasn’t perfect, they enjoyed that aspect. I want to continue to remember that and continue to have fun.
