Kelly & Michael: Dancing With the Stars – Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff
Jones immediately took off his shirt and he and Karina danced one of most intimate dances I have seen on the show. You could really feel the intimacy just jumping off the screen.
Michael Strahan is not one to be looked over so he made sure to pop his shirt off before he went on stage after the dance to talk with Smirnoff and Jones.
So which was harder for Jones? Beating the 49ers in the Super Bowl or making it to the finals of Dancing With the Stars?
“When you have to face three women, come on world,” said Jones.
Karina, who has won the Mirror Ball Trophy before, said Jones was an excellent partner to have even though she wanted to hurt him at times. Apparently he complains about everything, from the dance to the music to the outfits to the food to everything, but she said they still got along.
Dancing With the Stars – Mark Ballas and Aly Raisman
The fourth place winners of Dancing With the Stars, Mark Ballas and Aly Raisman, also performed their last dance together on Live! and it was pretty good. It was a lot more fun than Jones and Smirnoffs dance.
After the dance, Kelly and Michael wished both of them a happy birthday, adding that they were meant to be partners.
Michael wanted to know why Ballas thought athletes did so well on the show and he said it is because they can take criticism well, they are used to being coach and they never give up.
Mark Ballas Almost Missed DWTS
Ballas said he almost missed an episode of the show after he jarred his back. Luckily he was able to rehab the back and ice it long enough to get him back on the dance floor.
As for Raisman, she said the show got her excited to compete again and it even agve her some moves she is going to add to her gymnastics floor routine.
