“[He’s] handsome, but, when the music starts, it’s like someone sprinkled magic on him and he makes a complete transformation.”
These words came from Nancy Grace during Season 13 of Dancing With the Stars, and we couldn’t agree more. While thinking back on all of Tristan’s performances, we thought it would be fun to pick out a few favorites and share them with you. We looked for dances that we watch over and over, and they are also the ones that we spend a lot of time talking about on our website forum (MacManiaLand tab at the top of this page).
We think you will enjoy our top 5 favorite DWTS pro dances featuring Tristan MacManus. In our next post, we will feature our top 5 DWTS performances with his DWTS celebrity partners. After that, we’ll let you know our choices for hisTop 5 “other dances" and there are some beauties!
Tristan and Kym Johnson dance a beautiful Rumba to “Mr. Know It All” in Season 13. Talk about impact! Kelly Clarkson performed while Tristan and Kym danced, and even Kelly was a little taken back by all of that heat. This dance impressed us then and is still our favorite.
Tristan and Chelsie Hightower Samba to “End of Time" in Design a Dance. The costumes, music, and pros were chosen by the fans. This Samba was well worth the wait!
Tristan and Karina Smirnoff dance to “Dark Waltz” as sung by Jackie Evancho in Season 14. This abbreviated performance had maximum impact, and we will never forget it.
Matt Nathanson and Sugarland performed “Run” and Tristan and Peta Murgatroyd turned up the heat with this red-hot Rumba from Season 14.
Tristan, Kym Johnson, Sharna Burgess and Sonny Pedersen took it to the next level with “You Make Me Feel” as performed by Cobra Starship and Sabi. We loved this dark, edgy performance as much now as we did during Season 14.
We hope you enjoyed our stroll down memory lane. What do you think of our Top Five? What do you think were Tristan's top DWTS pro dances?
