You know you're a music success when you've raked in a whopping nine #1's on the US Billboard dance club chart without a major label machine behind you. That is exactly where dance-pop/reality TV star Erika Jayne is today.
The artist hit the dance club scene with 2007's "Rollercoaster," which quickly hit #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart, followed by eight more #1's: "Stars," "Give You Everything," "Pretty Mess," "One Hot Pleasure," "Party People (Ignite The World)," "Painkillr," "Crazy," and most recently, "How Many F—ks." She has crisscrossed the globe on tour several times, including headlining the nation's hottest clubs and festivals through her own label, Pretty Mess Records. Today, Jayne is ranked #42 on Billboard's 100 Greatest of All Time Dance Club Artists. Her brand new single "XXPEN$IVE," which was trending on iTunes on its first day, is out now.
In 2015 Jayne made her national television debut in the hit Bravo series, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Joining famous cast members like Lisa Rinna (a Dancing with the Stars semi-finalist alum), Eileen Davidson, Kyle Richards and Yolanda Hadid, Erika became the undisputed breakout star and fan favorite of the series' 6th season.
Gleb Savchenko is not only an extremely talented dancer, but is 6"1' with model looks and has a gorgeous family, too. His wife Elena is also a professional dancer, and they have a five-year-old daughter, Olivia.
On the last series of the U.K.'s hit BBC show Strictly Come Dancing, Savchenko partnered with Anita Rani, The One Show and Countryfile presenter. He previously appeared on the Australian and Russian versions of the show and on Dancing with the Stars, where he partnered with the wonderful restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Savchenko was born in Moscow and has been dancing since the age of seven. He is a specialist in International Latin dance with proficiency in ballet and contemporary dance. After the Strictly Come Dancing launch show, where he was introduced to the U.K. audience, he caused a huge stir on social media with viewers finding the Russian irresistible, and many made comparisons between Savchenko and a young Patrick Swayze. He later appeared on the BBC primetime show Masterchef.
