While there's been a buzz and a lot of debate this week about the new celebrity contestants on this season of Dancing With the Stars, I'm mostly excited about the new professional dancers. OK, not caring so much about Mark Ballas's dad (who'll be paired with Cloris Leachman) or pro Inna Brayer. But excited that Maksim Chmerkovskiy is back (woo!) and that a certain former So You Think You Can Dance hot tamale, Lacey Schwimmer, is joining in on the fun.
Every year I say that I'm not going to watch this show anymore. But then I do. This time around I got suckered into watching because of the adorable Lance Bass (I never noticed he was the worst dancer in the boy band, I just thought he was cute!), who was teamed new pro Lacey Schwimmer, whom I loved on So You Think You Can Dance. I was fully prepared to stop watching once the N'Sync boy got ousted, which, judging by his early performances, should have been right about the time Cloris got the boot. However, he's stepped up his game and now he's in the finals. While I'm slightly miffed that I've wasted countless hours on this show, I think he stands a shot at actually winning this season. Go figure.
