Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson...Eliminated 10/2


Recommended Posts

Joey Fatone

We know he can sing. We also know he can dance, as we all saw in Season 4 of Dancing with the Stars. Joey Fatone came so close to bringing home that Mirrorball Trophy. Will he be able to claim it as an All-Star?

Former *NSYNC star Joey Fatone is embarking on a series of projects for FremantleMedia Enterprises from hosting Price is Right Live in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, to, Let's Make a Deal for Caesar Entertainment and currently he is the voice of the widely successful re-launch of Family Feud with Steve Harvey.

Joey also completed a horror film Inkubus, working aside the original Freddy Kruger: Robert Englund. He was the host of NBC's cirque competition series, Celebrity Circus. Joey also produced his first cable television series The Singing Office for TLC and co-hosted the show alongside Melanie Brown. He also served as host of NBC's international hit series The Singing Bee, and in late 2007 hosted the Australian version of the successful series. From 2008 to 2009, Joey was featured as the lead red carpet host at all the major award shows for the TV Guide Network.

Joey is most beloved for being a member of one of the most successful music groups in the ‘90s, *NSYNC. The group has won multiple awards and set numerous records, including selling 1 million copies of their album No Strings Attached on its first day and 2.4 million for the first week (a record that still stands today).

Joey comes from a family of performers; his first acting gig was at the age of seven, starring with Robert De Niro in the feature film Once Upon a Time in America. His other film credits include The Cooler, alongside Alec Baldwin and William H. Macy, Homie Spumoni with Whoopi Goldberg, Donald Faison and Jamie-Lynn Sigler and My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Joey and his wife, Kelly, currently reside in Orlando with their daughters, Briahna and Kloey. He remains actively involved with his charity, The Fatone Family Foundation.

Kym Johnson


If you're wondering who to thank for introducing Kym to the world of ballroom dancing, look no further than her immediate family. No, it wasn't her parents. It was her brother! Apparently, he thought dancing would be a good way to meet girls, so Kym was dragged along to the lessons. Way to go, bro!

It wasn't long before Kym was dancing competitively. In December 1998, she and then-partner Tomas Atkocevicius came second at the Australian DanceSport Championships in the Open Amateur Modern Ballroom.

However, we got our firstDWTS glimpse of Kym she was paired with Jerry Springer in Season 3. Remember how Kym and Jerry were such fan favorites during their impressive run, which ended with a 5th Place finish? She stepped things up in Season 4 when she dazzled us on her way to a second place finish with Joey Fatone. Loved it! Then in Season 9, Kym took parter Donny Osmond all the way to the Mirror Ball Trophy. She then repeated her victory in Season 12 with Hines Ward.

You could say Kym "got down under" when she appeared on Dancing with the Stars (Australia). She also appeared in several TV ads as well as a sexy modeling shoot for FHM magazine. But even though the camera loves her, you can't keep Kym off the dance floor for long, as she also performed on the world tour of the modern ballroom stage show Burn the Floor.

Other highlights of her successful career include dancing at Elton John's 50th birthday party and appearing in the hit movie Strictly Ballroom. But we'll always love her for Dancing With The Stars!

It's now the All-Star season, and both she and Joey are out to improve their 2nd place finish and take home the Mirror Ball trophy this time around!
