LOS ANGELES - We are back in Los Angeles checking in on our Ravens Wide Receiver turned ballroom dancing sensation Jacoby Jones. Each week our celebrity dancer has seen more and more of a challenge. Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff scored their highest score of the season last week with his Foxtrot. While he excelled he says the dance will never be one of his favorites. The favorite part of his night was likely seeing his 7 month old son Jacoby Junior smiling brightly in the audience all decked out in a white suit in the arms of his grandmother. 2012 was the most important year of Jacoby's life because of the birth of his son.
This week will bring a new challenge, a different dance and the possibility of an elimination on Tuesday night. While it's been fun so far, Jacoby says the competition is getting steep. Competitors who were struggling like DL, and Andy have stepped up their games and he must continue to do the same. Disney star Zendaya continues to lead the pack and is favored to win this season. She's only 16 but she does come from a show that's all about dancing and singing. It's called Shake it Up. It's a great show but it has to give her a bit of an edge.
Each week I've watched Jacoby's mother Emily proudly cheering on her son, sometimes with tears in her eyes. This week I'll interview her about what it's been like to watch her son transform into practically a household name.
