From boy band to the dance floor, actor/singer James Maslow of the hit group Big Time Rush phoned in to The K-EARTH 101 Morning Show to talk about his experience so far on the cast of Dancing With The Stars. Now going into week five, James is coming off a hot week with his fierce tango in week four with his switch-up partner Cheryl Burke, which received a score of 35 out of 40 from the judges. As he continues to perform well, is James feeling the pressure to keep up to his previous standards?

“The pressure’s not too bad, but I gotta say it’s taken a physical toll. It’s pretty impressive, I thought I was in good shape and this show is kicking my ass,” he laughed.

As part of the hit Nickelodeon series/music group Big Time Rush, James noted that the group was accustomed to having a few moves, but has never done partner dancing, so DWTS has been “a whole new extreme for me.”

Known as the “handsome one” of BTR, James has definitely been playing up the sex appeal on DWTS by taking on many routines shirtless for his female fanbase.
“It was appropriate for the salsa, the sexy dance, and people seemed to like it, so I’m throwing it in when I can,” he laughed.

If you’re not a fan of James Maslow already, here’s little story that should win you over. A few weeks ago, Hannah, a lovely fan from Ohio, asked James to her prom. He couldn’t make it, so instead he made another dream come true. We gave him a call to get you all the exclusive details, but here’s how the story starts—Hannah’s touching prom proposal:


Unfortunately, his killer moves on “Dancing with the Stars” kept him from attending the prom (you know he would if he could!). To make it up to her, James flew Hannah and her family out to L.A., took them to Disneyland, and gave them VIP tickets to see him perform live on “Dancing with the Stars.” On Friday, Hannah’s school played this video to let her know:


WhoSay: How did you hear about the proposal?
James Maslow:
I had seen the proposal on Twitter; it started out with a couple of fans and then a lot of fans—I felt bad because I did not know what to do, since I knew I couldn’t make it, but then I came up with this and hopefully it’s even better.

WhoSay: What made you say yes to this video?
James:
I was touched by how supportive her schoolmates friends and family are – I wanted to show your dreams really can come true. Since it got so much support from the community, it seems like we should do all we can to let great things happen for good people. I’m excited to be able to be a part of this for Hannah and her family.

WhoSay: Did you go to your own prom?
James:
I did. I was lucky enough to go all four years; I was invited as a freshman and sophomore and then got to go as an upperclassman. I had a great time at all of them.

WhoSay: What’s your favorite thing to do at Disneyland?
James:
Space Mountain, and we definitely went on that.

Switching Partners
When I found out I was dancing with Cheryl, I was surprised. I honestly thought that they were going to switch Cody and I, so I was pleasantly surprised. Witney is great, but Cheryl has been here since the second season, so as good of a choreographer and dancer as Witney is, Cheryl really has a bit of a leg up.

The rehearsal dynamic was very different between us. I had hung out with Cheryl once or twice outside of work with the cast and she’s very sarcastic, so when our dry, sarcastic humors mixed, we didn’t know when we were joking or not, which made it somewhat awkward. But once we found out both of us are joking most of the time, we really had a lot of fun.

I’m happy with last night’s performance. At first it was hard to tell whether it was going to be as good as something I could do with Peta because I’m very comfortable dancing with her and I’m still really happy she’s my partner. I was pleasantly surprised that Cheryl and I were able to have such great chemistry and such an awesome dance. I’ve seen mostly positive comments and feedback. A few people are upset at her for trying to kiss me, but that was planned. I think we got a little closer than we’ve gotten in rehearsal, but we’re dancing the tango and it should be that shocking.

I thought Peta and Charlie had a killer dance. In fact, I thought they deserved better critiques and scores than they got, but they’re both amazing dancers. I’m sure Charlie can pick up choreography faster than I can because he does that for a living on the ice, but to see them dance together was really impressive.

The Judges’ Feedback
I’m about a foot taller than Cheryl and we have to be low for the tango, so it was difficult to stay that low and not keep my butt out. I think it was funny how the judges went about critiquing it, and I think somewhat complimentary. Considering there are so many technical aspects they could pick out, I was happy with them just going with that one. It’s hard. I’m used to playing sports, I’m used to being in the gym and doing squats, and you use your butt and stick it out. But dancing is the opposite and that’s something that would be difficult even if she was my height, but it was extra difficult because she was shorter.

During the judges’ critiques, I think Julianne Hough had a more creative and less blunt approach to saying ‘you and Peta are cute together and could be an item.’ I thought Erin Andrews was a little straightforward and–although I like her a lot as a friend and part of her ability to be a great host is her quirkiness–I did think talking about a baby with both of us when we’re not officially going out was somewhat presumptuous. Maybe not called for on the spot, but like I said, everybody’s doing it live, so I’m not too upset, but it would have been nice to have been prepped for that.
