Tyson Beckford wants Rihanna to take the Dancing With the Stars stage.
The actor and model joined Billboard‘s Tetris Kelly on set alongside his pro-dancer partner Jenna Johnson to discuss their exciting week on the show, in which they scored an 18 out of 30 for their salsa to “Aguanile” by Willie Colón & Héctor Lavoe.
When asked who they might want to perform live while they’re dancing, both Beckford and Johnson responded that Rihanna is their first choice — before Beckford said that he might even give RiRi a call. “I know her people,” he teased.
He also opened up about starring in Britney Spears’ “Toxic” music video. “We had some good moments together on set and, you know, she called me up I even went to her birthday party because we’re both Sagittarius,” he recalled. “She’s a different woman. She’s not like what everybody thinks.”
Dancing With the Stars airs live on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC and Disney+, and is available to stream the next day on Hulu.
