Former N’Snyc member Joey Fatone knows how to cut a mean rug! Although he was the second competitor to be eliminated on Dancing With the Stars: All Stars, he will get back into the groove as one of the judges on Dance Showdown. In the YouTube series, internet sensations are paired up with professional dancers to compete in one epic online competition.
“I love being on the other side of the table and being able to watch the dancers,” Joey tells Celebrity Baby Scoop.
In the dance competition show that has garnered over 10 million views in the first season, the online megahit is returning today (October 5) with Joey and fellow judges Laurieann Gibson, Ryan Higa, Dave Days and Shane Dawson.
Joey’s two daughters - Briahna, 11, and Kloey, 2 – are sure to put on their dancing shoes with papa. The former boy bander took a few moments to gush about his girls.
“[Kloey] is a tomboy,” Joey says of his baby girl. “She likes to climb on everything.”
And while he admits the 9-year age gap “was not planned,” he says there’s perks to spreading out the kids. “Now I have live in babysitting,” he jokes. “It worked out great!”
But don’t expect the dancing daddy to add to the brood. “No. 2 and through,” he confirms.
While there are “too many stories,” on the joys of fatherhood, the singer-actor-dancer, 35, shares his favorite daddy memory.
“There is nothing like the first moment becoming a father,” he says.
Dance Showdown Season 2 premieres on Friday (10/5) 9AM PT / 6AM ET on DanceOn network.
