Home Celebrity Carlos Santana Headlines “Dancing with the Stars” Premiere

And you thought tomorrow night’s “Dancing with the Stars” was all about Bristol Palin.

Wrong!

An actual person of substance will be headlining tomorrow night’s premiere on ABC. Carlos Santana is set to perform three songs. He’s doing “Oye Como Va”–his biggest hit other than “Smooth”–and then two from his new album, “Guitar Heaven.”

The two new songs are “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” with special guest India.Arie, and “Photograph” with Chris Daughtry. Daughtry is also doing a song from his own new album.

Santana is making a big media push in the next few days for “Guitar Heaven,” an album that features guest vocalists including Rob Thomas, Joe Cocker, Gavin Rossdale, and Pat Monahan from Train. Lots of great tracks–look for Santana to pick up some more Grammy’s this winter.

  1. True stars being the ones to PERFORM SONGS with non-stars being the contestants on shows like ‘Dancing with the NON-Stars’ and ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ isn’t anything new, Dave, but I definitely agree with your point. My mom and I don’t even think DWTS is all that, anyways; the DWTS franchise has all these non-stars, washed-up has-beens, and D-list celebrities as contestants, and the real stars (or rather, SUPERSTARS) just perform as guests, like Santana with India Aire, Debi Nova, Shakira, Christina Aguilera, Norah Jones, Celine Dion, Susan Boyle…I can go on forever. Part of the reason the true stars aren’t contestants on DWTS may be that they’re ‘too good,’ but that’s just me.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Justin Bieber and Katy Perry are on DWTS as GUEST PERFORMERS, not dancers, in the future.

  2. What a shame that a true star and legend such as Santana would consent to appear on such a piece of cultural trash like Dancing With The Morons. What’s next, the Eagles on american Idol Brain?
