"I'm not only proud of Ingo, I'm super-excited for him," Kelly told Zap2it. "I have always said that my experience with the show had absolutely nothing to do with dancing, and I think Ingo will be one of the people who understands why I say that. Whether he's the best dancer or the worst, he's going to come out of this having learned a lot about himself, and I think it's great. If everyone could try it once, I would roll out the red carpet for them."
If only we could all try it once — or twice, like Kelly. She’s the first celeb ever to win DWTS, and she took third on last season's All-Stars. So she can certainly give Ingo tips on what to and not to do. On Season 15, Kelly really worked that Team Vally are-they-or-aren’t-they showmance with Val Chmerkovskiy. That's not really something Ingo can do with Kym Johnson, since he's married, but he is an actor, and part of the job of selling a dance is to sell the connection and chemistry between partners. So that soap star experience should help him along the way.
Do you think we’ll see Kelly in the audience, cheering for Ingo & Kym … or maybe for Val and his partner, Zendaya Coleman?
