Just when you thought that we were done telling you all about our favorite Tristan MacManus performances, we decided to keep it going. In Part 1 we talked about our favorite Tristan pro dances on DWTS and then Part 2 consisted of our top Tristan performances with his celebrity partners (links provided below).
We’ve got more – that category of “other” performances on DWTS or elsewhere. We had to limit it to those which had links available because we didn’t want to tease you with dances that you might not be able to view. We also couldn't stop at five. This time our "Best of the Best" includes six performances.
These are all pretty spectacular.
Tristan and Kym Johnson once again made it happen with three red hot performances at the New York Red Cross Ball in 2012. Just sit back and watch. In this clip you get a Viennese Waltz, a delicious Rumba followed by several minutes of Tristan hosting while Kym changes her costume (plenty of laughs and worth watching), and then a passionate Paso Doble – all 3 dances performed in limited space. It didn't matter.
In February, 2013, Tristan danced with Anna Trebunskaya at Toronto's Dances With the Stars. Their Quickstep, Rumba, and Paso Doble were electrifying.

Tristan was a special guest on Katherine Jenkins' 2012 holiday special “Steppin’ Out With Katherine Jenkins." Ever since we had a taste of their chemistry in the Cha Cha Trio in Season 14 of DWTS, we hungered for more. Yeah, we got it all right. Wowza. Tristan and Katherine do a sizzling Argentine Tango at 35:00 in this clip. We’re still wondering what an entire season of them dancing together would have been like!
Tristan, Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas performed together in our favorite Trio Dance from DWTS – ever. This sexy Cha Cha was flawless – in spite of Katherine’s wardrobe malfunction.
Tristan and Emma Slater danced along with Lindsay Arnold and Victor Ortiz in the Season 16 Side-By-Side Challenge. This Viennese Waltz is still a favorite – not only because we saw Tristan teaching but because we finally got to see Tristan perform a Viennese Waltz. It was worth the wait.
This Paso Doble Trio Dance in Season 16 with Tristan, Kellie Picker, and Derek Hough could make you get the heebie jeebies and drool at the same time. "Welcome. Come on into me world,” said that Irish dude who was luring Ms. Pickler to the dark side. Oooh, it was good.
Tristan has had so many beautiful performances both on DWTS and at special events. We hope you enjoyed this walk down memory lane.
