I really like Chelsea and think she is an excellent dancer, but Mark is so full of himself. Otherwise, this would be one of my favorite pairs this season and my votes would go to them.
I guess the show really is desperate to get these two votes:
Pia Toscano From 'American Idol' Will Appear on 'Dancing With the Stars' -- For Mark Ballas | TMZ.com
4/19/2011 4:29 PM PDT by TMZ Staff
He's doing her, and now ... she's doing his show -- TMZ has learned, Pia Toscano will be performing on "Dancing with the Stars" next week ... and get this, her new BF Mark Ballas will dance to her music.
It's been in the works for a while -- and an hour ago, the deal was sealed.
Pia's performance signifies a borderline incestuous cross-pollination between the two biggest shows on TV ... "American Idol" and "Dancing."
And if that's not enough -- Pia will be back on "Idol" tomorrow for a special cast-off reunion.
I posted the band Hanson is performing Monday night during the show. From the sounds of Peta's twitter it sounds like it'll be a filler segment since the show is likely 90 minutes, and the dance troupe will dance to them. It wouldn't surprise me if one of the couples winds up dancing to one of their songs, and if that couple happened to be Chelsea and Mark (they're doing the quickstep, and there's a lot of Hanson songs that DWTS producers would say qualify as a quickstep song). Especially if they want to break the rules. I could see these two getting a former boy band or Spice Girls song, something to relate to their "youth". Re-watching some of the dances from Monday, the next time Chelsea/Mark say the reason they takes risks, break the rules, and do the choreography they do is to be fresh and young, I want to point to Romeo and the other Chelsie. They danced a wonderful, traditional foxtrot to Frank Sinatra and I think did a fantastic job without throwing in gimmicks or crazy costumes. I really hope the show isn't aiming for a Mark win, but I guess they'll want a Disney star to win sometime.
