Ballroom with a "Twist"

Evan Lysacek has parlayed his Dancing with the Stars clout into a part-time hosting gig for Louis van Amstel's new road production Ballroom with a Twist. Other hosts will include Mario Lopez, Sabrina Bryan, Gilles Marini, and fellow figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi.

The show is described as an extravagant evening of entertainment for the entire family, highlighted by stunning costumes, magnificent music (to be provided by former American Idol contestants) and breathtaking performances. "The costumes are pretty much what you see on Dancing With the Stars," says van Amstel. "They're young, they're hot, they're in the best shape of their lives."

Oh, good Lord, he's going to be a host? Evan is cute, but he is not exactly known for his sparkling repartee! Louie may regret this......

Can't wait to see Sabrina Bryan she rocks as host and dancer! Hope if they have a Dancing with the Stars tour she will be in with the others who do it too.
