Video: DTWS Champs Cha-Cha-Cha to ‘Beggin”!

May 23rd, 2012

Is “Beggin’”–well, UBIQUITOUS?! Last week Phillip Phillips rocked the house on “American Idol” with his rendition of the song, and last night–Donald Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd won the championship after their cha-cha-cha to this amazing song!


  1. It’s all over….”not bad for a song from 45 years ago!”

    When I tuned on “Dancing” last night, I was sure Katherine had it all wrapped up. I think “Beggin’” put Donald over the top. Let’s see if it does the same for Phillip Phillips tonight!!

  2. WOW!
    Yes Pam without any doubt in my mind its a sign. From Dancing with the stars with Donald and Peta dancing there free style to “Beggin” and walking with the mirror ball and tonight seeing Phillip Phillips on American Idol also right there on top. I loved the way he sang “Beggin” he does have his own style which is cool. They do have good taste for selecting a 4 Season song with such a great beat. The crowd went wild on both shows. And just love the way “Beggin” is moving beat in the Jersey boys too!
    But as the judges on both shows,i can see there were
    several that were good. It was amazing to view.

    The writers of “Beggin”???? And we know who you are. So many are proud of you both right now.

  3. To put this in time perspective, consider the uses of the following songs:

    1930 “I Got Rhythm” (The Gershwins) to 1967 (Happenings remake)-37 years

    1936 “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” (Cole Porter) to 1966 (Four Seasons remake)-30 years

    1967 “Beggin’” (B. Gaudio P. Farina) to 2012 (DWTS Performance)-45 years

    “Beggin’” has been remembered in a major way longer than those other standard compositions!

  4. Thanks Ted, again a salute to Bob G and P Farina for this song everyone LOVES!!!!

    Howard, I to Loved Katherine with her voice and dance to match / along with the beauty she has inside and out. Donald working to each beat of his dance, they had several Awsome dancers with DWTS. And as always to see and hear them use “4 SEASON” material is a Plus. It shows me they have good taste…

    As American Idol the same, Phillip had a very different voice, one he can truly call his own. As far as Jessica Sanchez WOW!!! only 16 and breath taking voice, that girl can SING. She is going places in the music field, as not only will many of the other contestants be touring together, but jobs in the recording business are right up there for many of them which is nice. I really know that many of Us really enjoyed these two shows this “SEASON”. Great! Talent. I would of loved to be one of there judges.

    Lets see who’s selected for the next “SEASON” on DWTS and DWTS????

  6. Kay, I’m sure Sherri Shepherd felt proud to dance to “SHERRY”.
    Guess I will repeat myself for my error on my comment above.
    Being early morning and trying to get ready for work.

    Looking forward on who’s selected for next “SEASON” on DWTS and American Idol.
