There is a horn section on there. I wrote and co-wrote the whole record. It is just fun, upbeat and catchy. Another word I have been using is unique, it has a whole blend of styles. It has funk, pop, there is a little Latin flare in there since I grew up playing guitar. It has a really cool vibe. Who would you like to duet with on your album? What about your dream dance partner? I get that question a lot. It would be her. If you were in a dance battle for your life and you had to pick three people to be on your team, who would be on your team and why?
Gene Kelly would be on there too and Michael Jackson. We would kill everybody! Me, Derek, Gene and Michael Jackson- that would be awesome! What is your song of choice? It is Hunger Games dance style. Christina Millian went home before Bill [Engvall] even though he, consistently, had lower scores throughout the entire season- MB: We went home before Bill.
A lot of people say Bill blah blah blah- first off, Bill is awesome. Obviously you guys voted for him. The judges can do their part and score them fairly but at the end of the day it comes down to viewer votes. Was she a dancer before the show? Corbin had a lot of experience.

Do you think that it is fair to bring in celebrities that have had previous dance training? I always bring this up in debate. There is no rule. I think this has turned into a stereotype where the show is about dancing with people who have no experience dancing. That has never been in the rulebook.
It is all about how you work with your partner and if you have a fan base as well. Who do you think has had the most growth when dancing?
Shawn Johnson has been amazing. If you would have seen her on day one. She was always natural but, in the end, she was incredible. At the beginning she could not count music at all by the end of it she was making it through routines.
Who is your dance influence? Justin Timberlake has got some good stuff going on. He would be cool on DWTS. If he did it, we might as well throw in the towel. At the end of the day, you can complain and say stuff. You just have to grit your teeth and go on with it. You have to be somewhat creative in an individual way the next week. At the end of the day, it is up to the fans. The judges are only three people. We have millions of people watching the show. Do you choreograph all of your dances?
Tell me one day of Dancing With the Stars. At its highest velocity, it would be rehearsal at 9: The first shift could be between four and five hours. There might be a wardrobe fitting. Go to CBS, pick out wardrobe, do fittings, make sure the dress is correct.

There will be a creative meeting with one of the guys who are in charge of the props and one guy who is in charge of the lighting. You have to make sure all of your band edits are correct and talk to the band editor. It is a full, full day.Shawn Johnson & Mark Ballas One on One Interview ET
It is so crazy. You get to eat, take breaks and do other things at the same time. Sometimes you have dances a week instead of just one. It is a hectic schedule. When you are in it, when you have a partner who is going to last you in the long haul, you have to work. Which dance is the hardest dance? Which dance do you need to spend the most time on, just to really get it down? It depends on the celebrities.
Like some are more inclined to ballroom and others to Latin. It depends on their body type and what they find natural. I like the jive. The jive is fun. It is also really fun when you get to the freestyle round too. Your father [Corky Ballas] was a dancer so you grew up around dancing. Is that what influenced you to be a dancer or did you come upon that on your own.
My mom and dad were both dancers. They were world champions together. I guess you could say it was in the family. I came into it that way. I was never pushed into it.
I made the decision that I wanted to do it myself. What do you do in your free time? If you have free time outside of your album and DWTS? I am dealing with the record and playing shows. When I do manage to squeeze some relaxation time, I am a huge TV junkie.
I just figured that out in the last few months. Who would you consider your mentor in dancing? She was my coach. Are you planning on doing another season of DWTS? It depends if they ask me back in February, we shall see then.
