Navratilova is one of the most celebrated tennis players of all time, and still remains active in charity events despite having been in a state of semi retirement for two decades. It warrants mentioning that she was also one of the most noted athletes (and still is) to come out of the closet as a lesbian. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lesbian dance, and I’m not sure I ever will again, so I’m going to make a generalization based on Martina’s performance. Needless to say, the pressure’s on for Martina Navratilova.
Gavin DeGraw, who may or may not be Jason Sudekis’ developmentally disabled brother, is one of those wuss rockers sang “Chariot” and the One Tree Hill theme song. If I had to put money on one contestant slipping, bloodying his nose, and crying as he runs offstage, I would put the farm on DeGraw.
Gladys Knight is a Motown singer who performed with the Pips. She is the oldest contestant at 67 years, but will nonetheless dance circles around Gavin DeGraw. Given her pedigree and age, she’s sure to be a fan favorite. I don’t really have anything snarky to say about Gladys Knight. Go get ‘em, Gladys.
