“DWTS’s” Tristan McManus loves Gladys Knight passion – VIDEOS


Gladys Knight and Tristan McManus
Bray native and gorgeous “Dancing with the Stars” pro-dancer Tristan MacManus says he’s a very lucky man to be partnered with singing legend Gladys Knight for season 14.

MacManus said “It’s great for me because she is a very passionate performer and that’s something you can’t teach people…If she can put that into her performance every week then it will be unbelievable.”
Last year MacManus had never heard of Nancy Grace before he met her but of course this year he knew exactly who he was being teamed up with.

He told WetPaint “I didn’t know who Nancy was last year but I am a huge music fan…I don’t think there is anyone who says they like music and doesn’t know Gladys Knight.”

It seems that the “Heard it Through the Grapevine” singer could be some competition for MacManus who admits he likes to sing as he rehearses his dances.

He said “I am hoping she just starts singing when she comes out on the rehearsal floor, I sing along a lot when I dance, so I hope she doesn’t critique me.”

Here’s Gladys and Tristan being interviewed last week:
