Tom Bergeron Hesitant To Interview Chris Brown on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ [AUDIO]

March 28, 2011 7:40 am

“Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron gives his opinion on this season’s contestants, and the difficulties of interviewing Chris Brown during “On Air With Ryan Seacrest.”

Tom confirmed Chris Brown will perform on tonight’s “Dancing With The Stars” stating, “I did tell the producers it may be to their advantage to not have me interview him, because my natural tendency would be to say something. So don’t put me in a position where you are asking me to not say something, because I really won’t do that.” He jokingly added, “They will probably have me in a Hannibal Lecter suit!“

Tom expressed caution over this season’s “Dancing With The Stars” contestants saying, ”I was a little concerned because the last two seasons have had lightening rod contestants like a tabloid Kate Gosselin and political Bristol Palin. This season felt a lot more like an earlier season of the show. “

Tom gives his opinion on two fan favorites: Ralph Macchio and Kirstie Alley. “Ralph is like Fred Astaire with Rod Blagojevich’s hair. He was amazing!” He continued, “I think Kristie Alley acquitted herself far better then any of us ever thought she would. It was amazing to watch her, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen Max happier!”

Tom continued on to remind audiences that everyone gets a second chance to dance tonight before anyone is eliminated. “Really glad we are doing it this way this season.” Voting will continue through tonight’s show and the couple with the least amount of votes will be eliminated Tuesday night at 8/7c.
