We were sad to see Joey Fatone go on Dancing With the Stars Season 15 All-Stars, but that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of him in the dance world. Joey is joining Dance Showdown Season 2 as a judge, so we’ll still be able to get our Joey fix. Wetpaint Entertainment spoke to Joey about Dance Showdown 2 and how he felt about his elimination.

Wetpaint Entertainment: What drew you to Dance Showdown 2?
Joey Fatone: The opportunity to be on the other side of the table and watch the dancers

What were some of your favorite moments so far?
It's great to see how excited people can get and how they open up when they hit the stage.

Was Kym Johnson hard on you in rehearsals?
She always knows how far to push me.  We work great together.

How did you feel about your elimination this week?
It’s a completely different season, a season where six people have won it already. Some of them are out for blood, some of them are here to have fun. I was here to have fun, maybe I should have been more out for blood, but hey, I had a good time.

Be sure to catch the premiere of Dance Showdown Season 2 on Friday, October 5 at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT on DanceOn’s YouTube channel.
