Dancing with the Broadway Stars in Chicago?

Doesn't it figure? The top three finalists of Dancing with the Stars all have a Broadway/West End pedigree? Actually four of the top five, if you include growing-up-before-our-eyes cutie Aaron Carter.

Here they are in their final order, with their partners and their theatre links. NOTE to Barry and Fran: Mya as Velma, Kelly as Roxie, Donny as Billy... and Marie as Mama Morton. Box Office GOLD!!!

Third Place: Kelly Osbourne and Louis Van Amstel. Kelly, of course, pled on screen for a shot at Roxie (she's already played Mama Morton) to another former Roxie, co-host Samantha Harris. (Louis could certainly hold his own in a black gauze shirt, huh?)




Second Place: Mya and Dmitri Chaplin. Mya has already done one tour of duty in Chicago. Time for another, girl! (Get some black gauze for Mr. Chaplin, too...)

Dancing with the Stars Season Nine Champion: Donny Osmond and Kym Johnson. Donny still has the pipes, the presence, and the charisma to more than pull off Billy Flynn. (How about Kym as Hunyak?)



And Aaron Carter is grow up enough now, too, to play with the big boys... he could be Fred Casely! The Jury?


What do you think? Jeff
