Talk about a romantic way to have a final dance. Paige and Mark have definitely been frontrunners all season on ‘DWTS,’ but their last dance was extra special, thanks to the woman behind the mic.
Mark Ballas‘ last dance with Paige VanZant was like none other — mostly because his soon-to-be wife, BC Jean, performed the number! Mark, 29, and Paige, 22, danced a powerful freestyle on Dancing with the Stars to “Over the Rainbow,” and BC Jean, 29, absolutely nailed the cover. Watch it here.
The dance was super powerful dance for Paige, bringing her back to the town she left to get away from bullying — it started with her opening a music box, and out came BC! Mark even cried at the end, making us cry too!
Mark and BC are also in an indie group together, Alexander Jean, and their tour together kicks off in June! So, they better get used to sharing a stage. Of course, this week is all about Paige and Mark, but we’re totally obsessed with his fiancée too.
Mark started dating BC Jean (real name Brittany Jean Carlson) in 2012, and they got engaged the day before Thanksgiving. He lined the driveway with roses and decorated the house with Woodstock theme, he told Access Hollywood, and used the fact that the house was undergoing construction to get her there.
“Our manager for our group called and said, ‘Look, there’s been a bit of a thing at the house, you need to go confirm something. Mark can’t get over there.’ She said, ‘Yeah, no problem,'” Mark said. “When she got in there I froze. My heart was pounding. I was cool as a cucumber all day. I’ve been on stages my whole life, and when she walked in the room I was thought, ‘Whoa, here we go.’ So we kind of just held each other for a minute, and then I did the [one-knee] drop, I popped the question, she said yes. Everything went to plan and the way the house was decorated – it was just absolutely incredible.”
He went a step further, and had all of their friends and families hiding all around the room to surprise her. “It was absolutely perfect.”
