Not only is Mark Ballas releasing the first single off his upcoming album on Monday, May 5, he’s going to perform it for fans on Dancing With the Stars Season 18, Week 8! Of course, that’s in addition to performing his own two dances with Candace Cameron Bure.
According to ABC, Mark will make his solo recording artist debut singing his new single “Get My Name,” along with his band and the house band Ray Chew Live. The single and music video, which is directed by Mark’s BFF Derek Hough, will be available on iTunes and across digital retail outlets globally beginning on May 5.
How exciting is that?
In terms of dancing, Mark and Candace have the Foxtrot for this week’s Quarterfinals, but we’re not sure which other couple will be their Celebrity Dance Duel partners. But for the first time in a while, they aren’t entering a new week with a score near the bottom of the judges’ leaderboard. We’re still a little worried about them making it to the Semifinals, but so far things seem to be going well. Except for Abby Lee Miller being the Week 8 guest judge; we know Mark isn’t a huge fan.
Congrats to Mark on this exciting news! Are you looking forward to hearing “Get My Name”? Read more details on the song here.
DWTS Season 18 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
