Tonight, on an all new episode of Dance Your Ass Off, Joey Fatone will be appearing as a guest judge. The former N*Sync member has plenty of dance experience to draw from. Not only was he in a boy band, he was also the runner-up on season four of Dancing with the Stars. Keep reading for more details on Joey Fatone’s experience as a judge and what he loves about Dance Your Ass Off

Joey Fatone will be appearing on a brand new, prom-themed episode of Dance Your Ass Off tonight. He’s looking forward to having a chance to sit on the judging panel of the weight loss dance competition. “It’s an amazing show as far as getting a chance for people to lose weight and have fun with it,” Joey Fatone says. ”In this show, you’re working out, but you’re also having fun. You’re learning a dance. You’re learning something that some of them have never done before. And to be able to feel free and to feel confident. It gives them great self-esteem to get out there and to go and dance.”

On tonight’s episode, the remaining contestants will be competing in a prom-themed challenge that requires extra skill. “They have to do a certain trick in their dance,” Joey Fatone says. “Everybody got a completely different trick, and you have to make sure that it’s in there. Some people are really hesitant, and some people were nervous about doing their trick. And sometimes you don’t even see the trick. So you just have to figure out where it is and you judge them as accurately as you can.”

Joey Fatone calls his guest judging stint “fun” and “interesting.” He also came into the judging without any knowledge of the contestants’ background on the show.  ”I never saw their performances prior to [filming] the episode,” he says. “I don’t know how far some of them have come. I don’t know if maybe they’ve been a good dancer and they’ve been maintaining the whole season through.”

In order to judge the contestants, Joey Fatone drew on his experience from Dancing With the Stars. “It’s actually interesting, because I start to pick things up when I watch Dancing With the Stars from doing all of the dance moves,” he says. “You start picking up things. I know where I made mistakes when I was doing it. And you start to see similar things that you’ve done before….Of course, I’m no expert.”
