another Pinoy ( mom is Pinay , dad is African-American ) in the current Reality Show " Dancing With The Stars " is Disney Star RoShon Fegan.
Roshon is a songwriter, producer, actor, artist and freestyle dancer who learned his moves by watching Michael Jackson and other influential dancers. A drummer since the age of two, Roshon also plays the piano, guitar, ukelele, key tar and many more instruments. He has released a number of singles on iTunes and has finished his first self produced EP "I AM RO SHON" under his own label, "3inaRo Entertainment." The name "3inaRo" (pronounced "three-in-a-row") is a reference to being a triple threat entertainer in his three passions; acting, freestyle dancing, and music.
Ethnicity: Filipino, African American
Roshon Fegan is an American actor, singer and dancer well known for his appearances in Shake it up, Married…with Children and Will and Grace among other television series. He was born on October 6, 1991 to a Filipino mother and an African American father. His father Roy Fegan is an actor and rapper.
SCORES ... 9 8 9 ...26
Roshon Fegan, who honestly we were not really aware of until "Dancing With the Stars" (he's a Disney Channel star, for those of you who may still be confused), has really come on strong these first two weeks on the show. This week's quickstep with partner Chelsie Hightower was a definite winner.
"I liked it. Good movement ... it was a little bit wild here and there, but it was young, it was fresh and I thoroughly enjoyed it," says prickly judge Len. Carrie Ann adds, "You turned that swagger into sophistication and elegance, fantastic technique." And Bruno brunos, "Something something BOLT OF LIGHTNING!"
The judges gave Roshon a 26, two nines from Carrie Ann and Bruno and an eight from Len. Quite a way to kick off the night.
Past experience shows that Disney stars have a built in fan base on “DWTS.” And those Disney fans have great text plans—and they aren’t afraid to use them
Britney Spears gave her fiance's pal Roshon Fegan a little encouragement as he began his "Dancing With The Stars" TV contest on Monday night - she was in the audience to cheer the young actor on.
Spears was a low-key guest at the season 14 premiere to watch "Camp Rock" star Fegan and his dancing partner Chelsie Hightower's cha cha.
Roshon admits he was stunned to find the singer waiting for him backstage just before his first performance on the show.
He says, "My good friend Jason Trawick and Britney Spears were waiting at the door to greet me and wish me luck on my performance. Jason has been a family friend for a while, and has believed and supported me as a songwriter, musical artist and producer. I was delighted that he brought Britney to come and support me as well."
And Spears was a big fan of his dancing skills - she later tweeted, "Just went to Dancing with the Stars to support Jason's friend Roshon Fegan. He is so cute! And wow can that boy dance!"
nice! we have another pinoy in DWTS. Is sheryl Burke still there? thanks for the updates N2S!
Yes , she's still with DWTS ... and paired with a Latin hunk ... so she might stick around for longer episodes vs. in previous ones where her partner got eliminated early on.... that's probably why you haven't seen her.
Last night ... Roshon unfortunately was in jeopardy right away ... even as he was tied for 1st place based on judges' scores...
One of Monday night’s top performers and a contestant who forgot sections of her choreography were both in jeapordy of being the first celeb sent home from the fourteenth season of ‘Dancing with the Stars.
A combination of viewer votes and judges scores ultimately led to tennis champion Martina Navratilova’s exit from the ballroom dancing competition, leaving Disney channel star Roshon Fegan safe.
so ... the "Disney young voters aren't turning up ... and if most households are like the ones I know of... those youngsters are discouraged from watching DWTS anyway ... because some mama's consider the costume and dances to be a bit on the " raunchy " side ..
But it's great visibility for celebrities like Roshon ... who aren't so in the mainstream yet....
and he definitely can dance ... so I imagine he will be in the radar for more Disney Shows...
