The Friday Five: Our Favorite “Dancing With the Stars” Contestants

In honor of Monday’s “Dancing With the Stars” finale, and our man James Maslow making it  to the finals, for this week’s Friday Five we’re looking back at our favorite DWTS contestants!

1. James Maslow
We cannot say enough good things about James, and are so happy to see him in the finals! He’s consistently improved week after week, and is such a passionate performer.  We’re glad everyone can see what us Big Time Rush fans have known all along!  Now if James could just take his new dance skills on the road on another BTR tour…

2. Lance Bass
The last time we were this invested in DWTS was the season of Lance Bass and Cody Linley in 2008.  We’ll never forget Lance’s iconic Jitterbug, where he lost his shoe in the finals but still managed to come in 3rd place!  (He should have won)

3. Cody Simpson
Oh, Cody.  You left way too early, but at least we got this “Surfboard” dance before you went!  We’re looking forward to seeing him back on the finale – we hear he’s been working on something amazing.

4. Joey McIntyre
Boy band members make the BEST contestants.  They have the moves, know how to charm a crowd, and have fangirl voting power.  We welcome any and all current and former boy band members to join the cast.  (Other former DWTS boy banders include Joey Fatone and Drew Lachey)

5. Aaron Carter
Aaron oh Aaron, what are we going to do with you?  Partner Karina Smirnoff managed to keep Aaron focused enough to make it to week 8!  He’s definitely got the moves and made each dance fun to watch.

Bonus: Cody Linley

And in case you were wondering what Cody Linley has been up to since DWTS, he released a single called “Breathe” in 2010.  You’re welcome.

Man Crush Monday: James Maslow on “Dancing With the Stars”

After a great weekend, we always get a serious case of the Mondays.  At least we have “Dancing With the Stars” to look forward to!  And by “Dancing With the Stars” we mean “James Maslow.”

We always knew how talented and hilarious James is, thanks to his part in Big Time Rush, but he’s proved week after week on DWTS that he has the talent, passion and drive (not to mention the voting power of the fan girls) to bring home the mirrorball trophy.  He’s consistently improved and raised the bar week after week, even scoring a rare perfect score for his contemporary dance to “Let it Go” last week.

Check out some of our favorite Maslow dances below.

The Tango:

The Jive:

The Salsa:

And let’s not forget where it all started:  Big Time Rush, whom we credit for bringing boy bands back in fashion, are one of the few LEGIT boy bands out there.   As in they actually dance.  Check out some of our favorite moves below.  (BTR keep saying “it ain’t over” … we’re hoping for just one more tour?)

Be sure to follow James on Twitter & tune into “Dancing With the Stars” tonight at 8 on ABC!
