He may have been the most surprising contestant in Dancing With The Stars history. No one, least of all the judges, thought when the season started that they'd be falling in love with the son of Master P, and so disappointed to see him go.
It's time, now, to put two of the biggest Dancing With the Stars preseason predictions to rest: First, that models — including this season's very tall, very lovely Petra Nemcova — can't dance. And second, that young rapper Romeo would be as careless about learning how to ballroom dance as his father, Master P, who subbed for his son after Romeo was injured playing basketball way back in Season 2.
Head judge Len Goodman was ruthless ...
Romeo may be portrayed as a flirt on Dancing with the Stars, but Chelsie Hightower says the rapper is all business this week after getting tepid critiques for their rumba. "We are working our butts off!" she tells TVGuide.com. "We joke around, but our main goal is to focus on the dancing and we're working extra-hard this week to come back stronger with our paso doble." Making their comeback slightly more difficult is the show's first classical week, which will feature a 46-piece orchestra for each couple's dance — not exactly the type of music that goes with the paso.
It's the season of the lookers, the fighters, a rapper, a Super Bowl MVP and a former Fat Actress — but not a one-time candidate for the U.S Senate. Emmy winner Kirstie Alley (Cheers) leads the cast of celebs who'll kick up their heels for Dancing With the Stars' 12th season, which begins March 21 on ABC. "We've wanted Kirstie from Day 1," says executive producer Conrad Green. "She's enormously winning and an absolute hoot."

As a comedian, Craig Robinson knows how to work a crowd. But he says he isn't sure why VH1 chose him to host this year's Hip Hop Honors.
"I kidnapped Tracy Morgan," the Office star joked to TVGuide.com. "I don't know how I got chosen [but] it was so much fun; one of the best experiences in my career."
