Shawn Johnson to Blog Dancing With the Stars for Today.com
Olympian Shawn Johnson joins TODAY.com to blog ‘Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars’
She’s back in more ways than one! Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson, who joined TODAY.com this summer as a special correspondent for the London Games, will be blogging with us once again — this time about “Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars.”
Shawn, who won the coveted mirror ball trophy in season eight of “Dancing With the Stars” alongside pro partner Mark Ballas, will be competing in the ballroom again for “All-Stars.” This time, she’s paired with pro Derek Hough, who already has three mirror ball trophies under his belt.
“I got to work with the TODAY show in London for the first time as a correspondent, and it was one of the funnest things I’ve ever done!” Shawn said. “And being on ‘Dancing’ … it’s going to be a fun one, to share my story and take people backstage. It’s really exciting to be able to share that.”
The champion gymnast will be sharing her inside scoop via blog posts, photos and more each week in The Clicker. You can follow her on Twitter @shawnjohnson to get updates on her latest stories for us.
“Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars” premieres Monday Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. est on ABC.
