Singer Mario Continues Dancing

The latest star to be kicked off the hit reality TV show, "Dancing with the Stars" was famed actor, Steve Guttenberg of the Police Academy series. Meanwhile one of the favorites on the show continues to be R&B singer, Mario, even though he seemed to be facing elimination after the judges criticized his latest dancing. In a recent Baltimore Sun blog, Mario revealed he will next be dancing the Paso Doble dance to the legendary Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground". Mario and partner Karina Smirnoff were amongst the final two couples on stage when the announcement came for who was going home this past week.
The singer remarked:

"When you are one of the last two on the stage, you really feel -- really feel it," he said. "Look, if it wasn't for those black ballroom pants I was wearing, I might have had a problem. ... I was so nervous, I might have peed on myself -- and those white pants I had been wearing [in previous weeks] might have showed that."

According to the Baltimore Sun chat Mario had, he is now rededicating himself to this competition, so watch out. Read more here.

Mario does seem to hold the advantage over his fellow competitors. Another favorite may be Miami Dolphin defensive player, Jason Taylor. It seems funny that many people assume NFL players on the show are not going to be good at dancing. Emmit Smith won the competition during his season and Jerry Rice was no slouch either. NFL players develop dexterity, balance and work on their footwork quite a bit, which does seem to give them an edge, even when they are muscular as well. They also are able to be disciplined enough when training to dance.

These advantages didn't help tennis star, Steffi Graf who was promptly eliminated from the show a week ago. But Kristi Yamaguchi, star figure skater and Olympic gold-medalist also seems to have that advantage, as she has done plenty dazzling and dancing on the ice. Don't count out Priscilla Presley yet either as she has that classic performer/entertainer in her lineage. The King may be looking on..

Dancing with the Stars
picks back up next week with more performances and eliminations on ABC. Check your local listings for time and channel.
