Jaleel White Kym Johnson.jpg“Dancing With the Stars” contestant Jaleel White tied for first place with opera star Katherine Jenkins when the show premiered on March 19th. Not only was his dance incredible, but the judges compared him to Gregory Hines.

White was a guest on Access Hollywood where he talked about his routine. He tells the hosts that he did this show for his mother, but that the woman they showed in the audience was actually his aunt! He talks about his little daughter, and how she loves to watch him dance.

He also addressed the obvious chemistry he has with partner Kym Johnson. He says,

“We have sparks, but our sparks produce dancing.” He continues, “We’re
having a good time. This whole dance culture is a very passionate thing
– you know, locked in that clench four to five hours a day, staring
into their eyes, you get to that
point where you can start to communicate without talking.”

What do you think? Are the sparks nothing more than performance? Let us know your thoughts below. “Dancing With the Stars” returns Monday night on ABC.
