Dancing With The Stars: Melissa Rycroft & Joey Fatone To Return

April 28, 2010 07:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


Melissa Rycroft and Joey Fatone, two alums from ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, will be returning to the ballroom for a special performance on May 18th. The former DWTS finalists (he finished in second place in season four; she finished in third place in season eight) and fan favorites will dance a tango during the second to last results show. Keep reading to hear what Fatone and Rycroft think about their new dance partnership…

Melissa Rycroft and Joey Fatone are dusting off their dance shoes and preparing to take the stage on an upcoming episode of ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars. On May 18th, the former DWTS finalists will partner together to perform a tango. “I’ve never done tango,” Rycroft says. “We’re doing a dance I’ve never done before.”

Despite their lack of experience with the dance, Rycroft and Fatone are grateful that they’re performing as guest stars and not competitors. “It’s going to be fun,” Fatone says. “They’re not really judging us, so if we screw up, we screw up.” And screwing up is a strong possibility given their limited rehearsal time. “We literally have five days,” Fatone reveals. “We’re going to need a little bit more time depending on how intricate the dance actually is.”

Rycroft jokes that Fatone has more to worry about than the judges during their tango on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars: her new husband, Tye Strickland, will be in the audience watching. “[Tye] will make him nervous,” Rycroft says. “He’s an intimidating guy. He’s 6’2 [with] dimples and blue eyes.”

As for the current crop of celebrities duking it out on this season of ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, Rycroft has no idea who will take home the mirrorball trophy. “It’s anybody’s game,” says Rycroft. “Obviously Evan and Nicole [because] score-wise they’re fantastic and they have the technique. Then you’ve got Niecy, Pamela, Erin and Chad, who have this personality that you just want to watch. Jake is doing great. I mean everybody’s bringing their own thing to the plate and there was a lot of hype before the season and I think they’re living up to it.”
