I LOVE Bonnie McKee, so I’m stoked that one of her songs is getting play on the show. Out of these dances, I’m most interested to see Amber Rose’s performance, since I’m not sure how you can get a foxtrot out of the song “Here”. But then, I’m no dancer, so I’ll just trust the pros know what they’re doing. Either way, it should be a hell of a season premiere this Monday.
But what do you think of the dance and song pairings? Who are you most looking forward to seeing? Sound off in the comments!
