On joining ‘Fantasy’:

“I enjoy the dancing. There’s something about it. I don’t know if it’s the energy of the girls onstage or being comfortable with what I’m doing, but I always have a good time onstage and I’m always laughing in the dressing room. I think it’s the most relaxed atmosphere I’ve been in since I’ve been out here. (Laughs) Honestly, I don’t have one bad thing to say about it, as cheesy and probably full of it as that sounds. I love the show!”
