Season 20 of “Dancing With the Stars” may be over, but the Riker Lynch/Allison Holker partnership isn’t! According to reports, the two, who earned second place in the hit ABC series, have stayed in touch since the 2015 installment concluded.
In fact, the dancing duo have remained such good friends that the blond rocker even asked Allison to star in R5’s musical video, “All Night,” which will premiere in early July. The song is from the band’s upcoming album, set to be released July 10.
"We just shot a music video and Allison made a little cameo," Riker revealed to E! Online at the premiere of “Teen Beach Movie 2,” which stars Riker and his brother Ross Lynch. "You might see a little dancing there."
Just a little dancing, Riker? The rock star and his dazzling dancer partner wooed “DWTS” viewers with their high-energy performances and moving routines throughout the 20th anniversary season, which is why we’re not buying Riker’s coy remarks!
Following the show’s finale, Allison went on to share her feelings about her partner in a blog for Life & Style magazine.
“This season was a dream come true! Dancing with Riker was something unforgettable. He had a spark, the talent and determination to make it to the end. He came out every week with confidence and showed America a new side of him,” she said, recalling some of their most memorable dances, including a sexy salsa routine and their “Pirates of the Caribbean”-themed Paso Doble.
“Riker is a force to be reckoned with and his career is only just beginning,” Allison gushed. “I am blessed to have gotten to know him, and I am excited to see what his future has in store for him.”
Little did she know that she would be a part of his future!
Riker added during his interview with E! Online that he’s confident listeners will really enjoy the band’s forthcoming record -- even if they’ve never heard R5’s music before!
“I think the album really stands on its own,” he said. “No matter where you heard of R5, or how you know us, or if you’re hearing us for the first time -- because I really truly believe we made a great one.”
