Dancing With The Stars Valentin Chmerkovskiy And Jenna Johnson Interviewed On Their Engagement And Wedding Plans

This is fun. Entertainment Tonight spoke with Dancing With The Stars Val Chmerkovskiy And Jenna Johnson at the opening of Gleb Savchenko and Elena Samodanova’s dance studio. They revealed some sweet information on their engagement over the summer. Read on….

“I had no idea,” Johnson said of the romantic moment. Chmerkovskiy admitted it was a more “spontaneous” moment, planning the proposal only “a couple of days” beforehand.

But even though the actual act of putting a ring on it was sudden, he did get the most important approval of all before going ahead.

“I asked her father, obviously that was a huge thing,” Chmerkovskiy said. “With our tour we were in Utah probably beginning of May and so it was a month before I proposed. So about a month, a little more than that.”

“I was shocked because I’m very traditional and so he knew that talking to my dad was really important and he was very adamant about doing it in person,” Johnson added. “And so the first thing I actually said to him was, ‘Did you ask my dad?’ And he was like, ‘Yes, of course!’”

And this on the wedding planning..

“I just want to put it out there right now for all my friends. ‘You’re not invited. You’re not invited and don’t take it personally,'” he joked. “We’ve been talking budgets. We’ve been talking 2018. We’re talking like, I celebrate you every day. Why do we need to pay extra for another meal?”.

I love this couple. For more, see Entertainment Tonight.

Normani Kordei Interviewed On Her Dancing Experience, DWTS, Val Chmerkovskiy, And More

Normani Kordei tells Billboard that her biggest challenge on Dancing With The Stars is “just to be quick”. Lots more below including how Val has been pushing her to the limits….

Normani, did you take a lot of dancing lessons when you were a kid? You have mastered all these dances pretty well and your kicks go so high. I was just wondering what kind of training you had?

I have been dancing since I was 3, and competitively since I was 9. I was in classes every single weekend I think that people kind of forget the fact that I am not a ballroom dancer, and this is all so new to me. So, I’m learning the technique. Like I said, I’m kind of having to unlearn certain things that I have learned.

What has been your biggest challenge so far?

I think in general just to be quick. You know, quicker feet and partnering is something new for me. I have never done that before, even when I was dancing. So just tighter movement with feet, and just staying active.

I can understand that, but it looks like you and Val have clicked from the beginning.

He’s dope. I have to say he’s a cool guy. Like inside and outside of rehearsal, he’s helped me in so many ways. Like even at the first one, I overthink a lot — and, ultimately, when we watch our videos after every live show, we are super proud because we know how hard we worked. He pushes me to the limit.

I can’t imagine how tough that was, rehearsing on a different continent during the Fifth Harmony Asian tour and then getting on a jet to fly out for a show. How did you do that? How rough was that schedule?

I do not know how I did it. People ask me and I have nothing in response. Like, I just don’t know. I think eventually, just staying present and accepting the fact that I am going to these places I have never gotten an opportunity [to go to before], like going to Asia. You can’t really complain about that. Plus, getting opportunities to see so many new faces and their stories while being on Dancing with the Stars, which is something that I also wanted to do.

So, I can’t really complain. But yes, it did take a toll on my body. But I drink a lot of water, and I took my vitamins and kept staying active. That helps, because once you kind of get lazy, it all goes downhill from there.
