Val Chmerkovskiy To Play His Violin On The Dancing With The Stars Live Tour – New Interview

Val Chmerkovskiy was interviewed by the Buffalo News before the premiere of the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. He talks on the dynamics of the show (on tv), his partners, the reality of the rehearsal packages, off camera friendships, and more. But, interesting note in the interview….Val mentions how he will also be playing the violin in a trio performance with Mark Ballas and another guitarist on the tour. Oh, this is too cool. More below and at the link.

On whether any of his partners on the show ever disappointed him.

“Every partner has challenged me a bit. … For me dancing is about men and women coming together.”

On whether or not there are off-camera friendships between the show’s professional dancers and its judges.

“I feel there’s a certain natural distance that must be kept away from them.” He exempted from that Julianne Hough, a judge last season but before that a “peer” as one of the show’s professional dancers.

On whether his lifelong violin-playing will be part of “Dancing with the Stars Live.” (He and professional dancer Ballas have a trio with Ballas on guitar and another guitarist.)

It will. “I will never turn down a challenge.”

DWTS Cheryl Burke Takes Cooking Lessons For Christmas

If you’d like to see what Dancing With The Stars Cheryl Burke cooked up for Christmas for her first holiday meal, see People. They are featuring a new picture and the recipes as well. Below is a take for what she said about it….

“I can see why this would be therapeutic,” said Burke, as she prepared a small feast of gourmet macaroni and cheese, lemon parmesan smashed potatoes and holiday brussels sprouts, while her boyfriend JT Torregiani stood by and watched with a smile. “Though I would end up eating less because I would taste everything!”

Granted, she was taken aback by some of the ingredients. “One stick of butter, whoa! Cellulite!” But, still, she was giddy with the results.

“This is my favorite food,” Burke said of the three-cheese macaroni concoction. “If I was in jail and they asked me what my final meal was, it would be mac and cheese.”
