Although Extra co-host Maria Menounos is widely regarded as the sexiest female celeb of Dancing with the Stars 2012, another celebrity participant may well give her a run for the title when the show premieres March 19 on ABC: Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins.
The beautiful blonde opera singer, who’s paired with former two-time DWTS champ Mark Ballas, Tweeted a jaw-dropping photo of herself Saturday afternoon. The picture features Jenkins dressed in a revealing black and silver fringed dance costume, along with the caption “Sequins at the ready…” The photo shows off the singer’s toned arms and legs, as well as plenty of cleavage.
The photo attracted the attention of at least one Dancing aficionado, season 12 runner-up Kirstie Alley. The actress responded to the Tweet with “What a gorgeous dancer you will be…don’t crash into the guest singers like I did you…;)…oops..sorry”, including a reference to a run-in the two had during her tenure on the show.
No news on whenÂ—or ifÂ—Jenkins will don the outfit for DWTS. She and Ballas are scheduled to dance the Foxtrot during premiere night, and the Jive during week two, and the costume isn’t particularly suited to either style.
Watch the Dancing with the Stars 2012 premiere at 8 PM on Monday to watch Katherine Jenkins, Maria Menounos, and the rest of the brand new celebrity cast begin the quest for Mirrorball glory.
