This week on ABC, Dancing With The Stars returned with the season 14 premiere and some very majestic first performances. Among those that rocked the dance floor, were Kym Johnson and her partner, Jaleel White. Recently, Kym Johnson dished on working with Jaleel, and the new season! Read on to hear what she had to say…
Jaleel White and Kym Johnson gave us an impressive Foxtrot on the season premiere of Dancing With The Stars, which earned the couple a tie for the top spot, but it took them some time (and research) to get to know one another. Kym Johnson recently revealed to Life & Style Magazine: “We both went home and Googled each other after we met,” because neither of them knew who the other was!
So, what does Kym Johnson think of her partner, the former Steve Urkel? Kym thinks that Steve is very intelligent and coordinated, which helps on the dance floor. She also added: “He’s very hard on himself. That can be a great quality, but it can be a detriment as well. It’s great because he strives for perfection, but he gets frustrated when he can’t pick a step up in the first two seconds. He just has to be a little bit more patient with the learning.”
As for the competition this season, Kym Johnson revealed that she is a big fan of Martina Navratilova, Katherine Jenkins, and Maria Menounos. Kym also reiterated what everyone has been saying along – the standard is very high this season, and she is looking forward to seeing how it all plays out each week.
