‘DWTS’ Star AJ McLean Says His Dancing Background Doesn’t Help, Johnny Weir Too
A few new contestants for “Dancing with the Stars” insist they have no advantages, despite their dance backgrounds, so who do you think the least – AJ McLean or Johnny weir???
First, the Backstreet Boys star, whom we walked out of the “DWTS” rehearsal studio in LA and asked if his boy band choreographic skills gave him an immediate advantage over the competition. He thinks it may be the exact opposite.
AJ tells us he’s been trained to dance one way for 30 years, but now … it’s a whole new ball game, so he has to reprogram. On top of that, the singer says he’s focused on his health and diet to prepare for the challenge ahead … and so far he’s been “kicking ass.”
As for the music he will dance to on the show, he says some BB hits can certainly be expected … but excludes one of them.
We also have figure skater Johnny Weir … who agrees with AJ, telling us that “ DWTS ” requires a completely different skill set than he might have prepared him to turn and twirl on the ice … so he plays tied. field.
Of course, with skating, costume design is kind of Johnny’s business … so he might be a step ahead of his fellow competitors. What he cannot deny.
Our sincere thanks to
