Report: Wayne Newton joining ABC's 'Dancing with the Stars'


By Christopher Rocchio, 08/22/2007 

Wayne Newton has more than 40 years worth of experience as an entertainer, and now he's apparently hoping his talents as a musician translate to the dance floor.

The 65-year-old Las Vegas icon will be featured as a celebrity participant on Dancing with the Stars' upcoming fifth edition, Entertainment Weekly reported Tuesday. 

While ABC neither confirmed nor denied Mr. Las Vegas' participation in the Emmy-nominated reality competition series, Entertainment Weekly reported his name will be included in the list of fifth-season celebrity two-steppers when ABC officially announces its lineup during the August 29 broadcast of Good Morning America.  The announcement will be made by judge Carrie Ann Inaba and Dancing with the Stars 4 champ Apolo Anton Ohno.

Newton began performing in Vegas during the 1950s and has since sold out thousands of Sin City shows.  While he'll be the second oldest Dancing with the Stars' participant behind only Season 2's George Hamilton,  Newton is still much the entertainer as he's currently performing at casinos and other major venues across the country.

Dancing with the Stars 5 is scheduled to premiere over the course of three consecutive nights beginning with a 90-minute performance episode on Monday, September 24 at 8PM ET/PT. 

Earlier this summer, Jennie Garth's publicist confirmed the former Beverly Hills 90210 actress will be participating in Dancing with the Stars 5.  Although unconfirmed, fellow former 90210 cast member and Tori & Dean: Inn Love star Tori Spelling and Spice Girl Melanie Brown will also reportedly be members of the show's fifth-season cast.
