Chelsea Kane, Mark Ballas, and others (psst! Pia Toscano!) perform all-star rendition of Rebecca Black's 'Friday'

Ah, Rebecca Black’s “Friday.” The viral sensation is just like mono: It’s catchy, and just will never go away. So, today in “Friday” news, the Black hit has become a favorite amongst our Dancing With the Stars contestants, including Chelsea Kane and pro Mark Ballas, who perform their own beat-boxing version, titled “Friday (DWTS remix),” in the video embedded after the jump. Some Hidden Gems: The hula hoop hanging on the door in the background, Chelsie Hightower and Romeo, and a certain American Idol contestant who is probably not just friends with Ballas. That’s right, Pia Toscano, set to perform on the dancing reality show this week! Looks like she’s regularly kickin’ in the backseat in the DWTS studios. Check out their performance after the jump!

    Wow, they’re just so cutting edge and on the ball with this.

    • Elizabeth

      I know, right…. like my cousin a couple of his college buddies did one of these 3 weeks ago.

    • Ghost of Pia

      Pia! Yes! She rules.

  • db

    I am curious. Chelsea said the song “Chelsea” was written for her by a teenage boyfriend? I heard the song this weekend on a Kid Bop recording. Could she have been making this up?

    • AT

      I doubt it. That song is on Summer Set’s album from 2009, which is plenty of time for it to show up on a Kids Bop album.

      • Fatima

        She’s also in the video.

  • TorontoTom

    Would you please STOP with the coverage of the “romance” between the robotic Idol reject and her gay dancer pretend boyfriend!?! PATHETIC.

    • mama

      WOW… having some issues do you? You are probably gay (“Not that there is anything wrong with that” Seinfeld) and can’t admit it. Not all dancers are gay either… Mark has actually been in long term relationships with females… which I assume you may have missed living in the basement of your mama’s.

      • TorontoTom

        Totally off the mark, sister – I am a proud, out gay man and that’s the issue I have with Mark Balas and this 1950’s sham that the producers of DWTS and AI are trying to pull over on the public for ratings. Trust me, Mark is gay – deal with that in your mama’s basement, crying over your Marky Balas scrapbooks…

      • tC

        Maybe he likes both…either way WHO F’IN CARES??? Jesus….I get as tired of people calling other people closet cases as I do people calling gay men f’s and h*m*’s. Maybe he will have a Ricky Martin moment one day and maybe he won’t either way….once again….WHO F’IN CARES??!!

      • Kat

        I LOL’d when mama accused TT of being a closeted gay man because I read EW comments regularly and knew he was out and proud…but I will say that I think Louis has made it pretty clear on DWTS that he’s gay, right around the time that Prop 8 happened, I think it was. And he kind of used the show as a platform to talk about it. So I don’t think the show is forcing Mark Ballas to hide anything about himself. I honestly get the vibe that Mark is straight but he used to be a huge dork who couldn’t get dates or something, and he’s aware that he’s not nearly as charismatic and masculine as the other men on the show, so he’s trying a bit desperately to convince us all that he IS manly and charismatic.

        If Mark was gay then why did he try to hide his relationship with Sabrina Bryan? I get that he’s a dancer and that’s not a manly profession but that doesn’t make him gay. I’m a gay man with excellent gaydar and he’s straight. It’s embarrassing to us as a community that every time a man is both good looking and famous, gays jump all over them. If I believed you, I’d have to believe that every other famous man in Hollywood was gay.

      • lin333

        Hey “Mama”, I am an independent woman of middle age, and trust me, that man is gay-he dances gay, looks gay, and I don’t give a rats behind if he is, but why hide it?? Many famous people have done it before (Rock Hudson, Anthony Hopkins, Michael Reed, Hugh Humphreys, …just to name a few) when it would mean a death for their career in those times. No one cares nowadays, but when you fool those around you, you are cheating your own happiness and have a fractured self of identity. Him being with Pia from American Idol is comical-they look like misfits-she is so beautiful and he is such a dork. Maybe she will help him slowly peek out from the closet door. People have radars for these things-believe me!

  • SARA

    STOP STOP STOP with Friday and with these 2 reality “stars” who will pimp out thier “relationship” to get press. Would think they would want to make it on their “talent”

    • jen

      Agreed! Could these 2 people be any MORE desperate for attention?? Just go away already.

      • Yeah right…

        I saw Pia on one of the morning shows singing Whitney Houston’s ‘Where Do Broken Hearts Go?’. When she got to the line “And when somebody loves you / Won’t they always love you?”, I wondered if her boyfriend of 4 years was watching. She quickly dumped him when they cooked up this whole Pia-Mark Pretend Romance Thing. Both of them are trash.

      • Saz

        To Yeah right… :
        Stop making assumptions and judging people. You don’t know what happened in their relationship.
        Anyway, love Pia, but hate the whole Pia and Mark couple.

  • Steve

    I actually wish they’d stop covering this song. Tired of watching no talents become celebrities….

    • Kris

      Agreed. I heard glee is covering it too. Just let it die! It was funny for a week.

  • Kate

    I am guessing it was literally Friday at like midnight and everyone was touch stir crazy.

  • sowhatwhocares??

    And all of these guys are in their early 20’s and having fun so what’s the big deal?? Yes that song is annoying but I’m pretty sure they realize that. Relax…

    • Linda

      EXACTLY!!! Geez it was just a bunch of people fooling around having some fun. And they posted it to try and make other people smile and enjoy their goofiness. Sometimes people commenting on this site just need to RELAX. Wow.

  • Black Friday

    I’m not a real big fan of the song.. was kind of annoying after the first time of hearing it.

  • lin333

    I have nothing at all against people who are gay, lesbian, or whatever. But Mark acts gay, dances gay, looks gay, and his main support is his Mommy! I can’t believe Pia would link herself to him (most likely for publicity)and don’t care, but the world is more open today. I bet he comes out soon and also do not care, but he needs to be honest with himself before he can fully except himself. Yes, many dancers are straight, but come on, he wears it on his sleeve with his performances which screams GAY!
