Katherine Jenkins Misses Dancing with the Stars 14 Launch To Entertain Troops

Filed under : Celebrity News

Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins was conspicuous by her absence at the Dancing With The Stars season 14 launch.

Jenkins was not in attendance on Good Morning America on Tuesday (February 28) because she was en route to entertain troops in Afghanistan. However, she never actually arrived in the Middle East due to “technical problems”.

In a statement, Katherine Jenkins said,

“I would have loved to have been at the announcement but as a supporter of military men and women around the world, it was very important to me that I keep my word and be in Afghanistan to entertain the troops.”

But there were apparently technical problems with the plane, which prevented her getting there.

“But this will not stop me from going again in the future!” she stressed.

Jenkins later Tweeted her disappointment at missing both major events, but added that she cannot wait to begin training for Dancing with the Stars with her professional dance partner, Mark Ballas.

The singer also rallied her fans for votes, writing, “Hope I can call on you for your support… Think I’m gonna need it!”

She will be competing with the likes of Melissa Gilbert, Sherri Shepherd, Gavin DeGraw and Jack Wagner.

Dancing with the Stars returns on Monday, March 19 on ABC.

    Why do you call her an opera singer? She has never sung IN operas, she will never sing in operas.

    An “opera singer” is someone who sings in operas. It is very difficult because opera singers sing WITHOUT MICROPHONES in 2000-4000 seat theaters over an orchestra, in 2-5 hour performances, while acting. It requires a stronger voice than Katherine Jenkins has and a different technique.

    Including a few arias in miked concert, recording a few arias doesn’t make one an “opera singer”. Katherine Jenkins calls herself “classical crossover” singer.

    The ignorance of today’s reporters is really sad.
