 Familiar Face on Live to Dance

Joey "JoJo" Piatczyc watches a lot of soccer, like many of his Sporting Kansas City U16 Juniors teammates. But on Wednesday night, all tv's in the Piatczyc household will be tuned to CBS for the finals of Paula Abdul's Live to Dance as JoJo's brother Blake competes with Dance Town Chaos for the $500,000 grand prize. Blake can be seen in this YouTube clip beginning at the 1:20 mark as part of the semifinal routine that aired last Wednesday and earned the group a spot in tomorrow night's finals.

Blake, a junior at Lee's Summit West High School, was recently featured in the Lee's Summit Journal, and the Miami, Florida-based group was covered in the Miami Herald.

Meanwhile, JoJo is making a name for himself within the Juniors academy. Currently a freshman at Lee's Summit High School, he played in each of the U16 Juniors first four games in the 2010-11 U.S. Soccer Development Academy, including a start in the team's 2-0 win over the Dallas Texans.

JoJo encourages everyone to vote for Dance Town Chaos tomorrow night as the show runs in primetime on national television, 7pm - 8pm CT on CBS. The winner will be announced on the season finale, which is scheduled to air on Wednesday, February 9th.
