Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy made it to the finals on Dancing with the Stars. Kirstie is now taking that dancing experience and recruiting new celebrities for the show. Keep reading to see who she thinks should be on the next season of the show.
Kirstie Alley took time away from rehearsals to tweet her brilliant idea of persuading New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg to be on the show. She tweeted, “u gotta rise and grind next season on DWTS…U would kill it!!!I’ll be watching…..;). Donnie responded to her idea, “I don’t know about that but I’d sure love to dance with you! Kick ass this week and bring that disco ball home!”
While Donnie didn’t immediately jump on the Dancing bandwagon, he didn’t dismiss the idea either. His appearance on the show might be dictated by schedule, as he is not only currently touring but is also starring on the CBS drama, Blue Bloods. Donnie was seen performing on a results show this season with his band and the Backstreet Boys. His bandmate, Joey McIntyre, was part of the first season. Other boy banders on the show have also done really well. Joey Fatone of Nsync made it to the finals with partner Kym Johnson. Lance Bass also performed well on the show with partner Lacey Schwimmer.
If Donnie does indeed sign up for the show, I’m hoping to see some of his ’80′s boy band signature moves incorporated into the ballroom-especially those famous moves from “The Right Stuff!”
