Mark Ballas and BC Jean Talk Julianne Hough and Lindsey Stirling (Video)

Sounds like the Hough-Ballas clan has a lot of other stuff going on and the odds of us seeing them ALL together again on the show are slim. Good for them! DWTS won’t last forever and you have to grow up sometime.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

What I’d give to see Mark come back to the show….and Derek as the show is not the same without them!! I love the idea of BC dancing too.

Mark Ballas And BC Jean Perform At The Cutting Room In New York City – Review, Photos, Videos By Lily

You might know Lily from comments and other Pure blogs. Well, Lily saw BC Jean and Mark Ballas, aka Alexander Jean, perform in New York City, NY at The Cutting Room. Below she tells us all about it. Lily also sent us some fun photos and beautiful videos of their performances. You will love this. Enjoy! (((((THANKS LILY!!!!))))) You are a jewel!

I’ve been a fan of Mark Ballas on DWTS because of his creativity, choreography, goofiness and of course his dance skills. I had a meet and greet with DWTS live tour in January 2015, but Mark wasn’t there that day so I was disappointed that I didn’t get to meet him. During week 9 of DWTS S21, when Derek Hough and Bindi Irwin used Alexander Jean’s song Roses and Violets, I was inspired to see them in concert when they announced their tour last year.

When Alexander Jean played Webster Hall in NYC in July 2016, I was able to meet Mark and BC before and after their show! Since then, I have been able to see Mark perform as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys in October 2016, and November 2016.

Mark tweeted about playing another gig at The Cutting Room in NYC. I was planning to go, but final plans didn’t work out until the day of the show! Marianne, another DWTS fan, was generous enough to do the driving, and we even found free parking on the street in NYC! We arrived at the venue at 10pm, and the show started shortly after 10:30pm. The setlist was as follows, in no particular order:

Thief
“The Chain” Fleetwood Mac cover
So Bad
Whiskey and Morphine
Stampede, Mark’s guitar solo
Roses and Violets
Run
Head High

If I Were a Boy – Beyonce song written by BC Jean et al.

The songs on their first EP are inspiring, and were performed with talent, passion & chemistry. The show ended around 12:15 am. Many of the Jersey Boys cast were there to show support. There were also friends of Val Chmerkovskiy who were there to support Mark and BC such as Nicole Volynets.

We all waited around for Mark and BC to greet the fans. Marianne and I got on line to wait to talk with Mark and BC Jean. When it was my turn, I said hello and introduced myself, and they both said it was nice to see you again, and always show your support. I said something like “you remembered”? Mark said “It’s hard to forget you. Thank you for always showing your support”! Awwwww!

I was holding a photobook that I made, and Mark asked “what do you have there”? I said I made a photobook and showed him the page of our meet and greet from July, and asked them both to sign the page. They were happy to oblige, and then we proceeded to pose for our pictures.

Marianne was taking pictures during our talking & signing, so when it was time for the posed picture, the camera wasn’t ready, so we had to wait a few seconds. She was able to take a couple of pictures. Mark also asked me to tag him when I post the pictures. After saying thank you, and that I will miss them, they promised that they will come back in the summer for their second EP release. Afterwards, I asked Mark if he will be doing DWTS, and he made a hand gesture about being not sure! We shall see!

We left the venue around 1:50 am. Marianne dropped me off at 2:30am, and she didn’t get home until 3:50 am so it was a late night for sure, but we had a great time! Thank you Mark and BC!

Here are some pictures and videos. I tweeted some pictures and videos, and Shirley Ballas liked them. Enjoy!

BC Jean Talks Of Her Wedding Tango With DWTS Mark Ballas, More Stunning Wedding Photos

If you’d like to view more photos of Mark Ballas’ and BC Jean’s wedding, see The Knot News. They are stunning to say the least. You can also read more details on the wedding. Below BC talks of doing the Tango and gives some wedding advice….

The couple shared their first dance to Coldplay’s “Magic,” but surprised their guests by breaking into a tango halfway through the dreamy tune. (It was, after all, Mark Ballas’ wedding!) “No one has [really] seen me dance,” Jean continues. “I’ve never seen myself do the tango either, so it was fun to get a sexy little number in. Everyone’s faces were priceless.”

Ballas proposed to Jean on November 25, 2015. The pair loved the idea of marrying on their engagement anniversary, but with their busy schedules, the date was difficult to nail down. The day after they mailed out their wedding invitations, they found out they were moving to New York. “We thought we might have to change the date again, but we luckily made it all work out,” she says. “It seemed very symbolic for us, and we’re so happy we got to do it on November 25.”

Looking back, Jean has some personal wedding advice to share with The Knot readers. “Don’t blink; it goes by so fast,” she notes. “Incorporate all the things that are you. When you’re planning a wedding, there are so many people [who] love you and want to help… People want to give overwhelmingly.” In the end, says the bride, “Keeping it true to [yourselves] is very important.”
