Mark reports that he has now had a complete rehearsal and has been fitted for his Frankie Valli suit. 


One week to go.

Thanks for the video links. Awesome! I was hoping to hear Mark's falsetto.

Hello, there, luvthepros! 



He uses a lot of falsetto in his "Get My Name" video.  It's not Frankie Valli, but it shows he can do it very well.

Good luck to Mark!  He looks so happy in that AH interview.  It does feel strange not to see him on DWTS and that he won't be back for now.  Maybe later next year he will be able to make a quick visit or maybe even come back for a season. 

I loved that trio foxtrot Mark did with Sadie and Emma to Can't Take My Eyes Off of You.  I wouldn't be surprised if Mark was the one who requested that song, and I bet he had fun working out a trio foxtrot to it.  Sadie looked so beautiful in that dress that was made up of over 24,000 stones--a record.  The designers recall the costumes for that number among their favorites.

Tweeting that it was the best night of his life, Mark Ballas is a happy man.  Reportedly, the audience loudly cheered as he made his entrance onstage and they remained enthralled throughout his performance.   His mom, grandma, aunts, and fiance BC Jean were there with Derek's dad Bruce Hough and his wife.  Friends in LA who could not get there, including Derek, Julianne, and Val, and many more, all tweeted good lucks and congrats.  Mark has made his Broadway debut and he is a huge success.

I would love to see Mark in his Frankie  Valli role. I think Mark will continue upwards from DWTS to greater things. He is certainly multi talented.

Episode 2. 








I could be wrong, but I think Mark might be getting married over the Thanksgiving weekend.  They are hinting that the wedding is coming up VERY soon, and he is taking that whole week off from his Broadway work.

Love Mark in his new role. Wish I still lived in New Jersey. I would definitely go see him in the show. I've seen this show with the original cast and wish I could see it with Mark.
