You all know how much I adore Dancing With the Stars, so it makes sense that I would leap at the chance to review the new CD by Ballas Hough. That's the band formed by DWTS champs and professional cuties, Mark Ballas and Derek Hough.
The boys, who grew up together, have always loved music as much as dancing. They finally made an album, filled with songs they wrote themselves, plus one from hit maker -- and my new favorite American Idol judge -- Kara DioGuardi. They even play instruments!
So of course you want to know how it sounds, right?
Pretty much exactly like what you imagine. I mean, look at them. Derek's band bio should read "guitar, vocals and lead flat iron."
It's cute. It's fun. They sing pop hits. There was even this one song, Birthday, that sort of rocked out.
In the immortal words of Paul Stanley, KISS Guitar and Makeup God -- and artist: "It's just good, fun music. If you're looking for something deeper, you're looking too hard."
Sure, Paul Stanley was talking about ABBA on Behind the Music, but you get the idea.
If you like the Jonas Brothers and Miley and all that music "the kids" play, you'll enjoy Ballas Hough -- check it out.
