Gladys Knight

R&B singer Gladys Knight held her own and got a good workout as a contestant on "Dancing With the Stars" (Knight claims she lost 60 pounds during the show). But we prefer that the multiple award-winning soul singer stick with singing and put up her dancing shoes. Knight's cha-cha and fox trot don't compare to her songs "Midnight Train to Georgia," and "Neither One of Us (Wants to be the First to Say Goodbye)."
<br><br><b>
Why go: </b>To hear "Midnight Train to Georgia," etc. and kick in "I Heard it Through the Grapevine¿ and "I Don't Want to Do Wrong."
<br><br><b>
Reconsider:</b> You are going to wait for Knight's performance at Country Club Hills Theater on June 15.
