Season 30 of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ has begun, and if the first two episodes are any indication of the season’s frontrunners, the ladies are in charge. With Amanda Kloots and JoJo Siwa consistently receiving high marks, Melanie C of the Spice Girls is hot on their tail.
Melanie C and her partner Gleb Savchenko danced the Cha Cha to Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” last week. The two danced the foxtrot to The Beatles’ ‘Here Comes the Sun’ this week. Mel C, like the majority of the performers this week, had a personal connection to the song chosen.
