Burgess explained, "[Nick] wanted to feel like he was a better dancer, because he always felt like he got pushed to the back because he wasn't [a good dancer].
Now he's right up there in the front."How amazing to workwith and choreograph for these incredible men @backstreetboys !!

Burgess also joked that her single status may have played in her favor when producers were casting this season. It looks like Val Chmerkovskiy might want to consider becoming a relationship guru when he hangs up his dancing shoes. And I think she's going to have to be a very strong woman. "I know that my life will have it happen when it's meant to."Burgess has been fully focused on her career to this point, putting a lot of love and passion into her work.
"At the moment, I am the only single girl in the cast, so I get put with the hot, single guy," she laughed. Burgess dished about a recent conversation she had with the 30-year-old dancer when she was looking to get another outlook on why she's still single."I was like, 'Babe, I have no game,'" Burgess told us. He likes strong women -- strong, passionate, driven and intelligent," she continued. WATCH: Val Chmerkovskiy Addresses Amber Rose Split for the First Time: 'I'll Always Have Her Back'5.

He's the most beautiful blend of the two of them [Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy]. He's going to break some hearts when he's older."When it comes to Shai's parents, Burgess has nothing but praise for the way Murgatroyd and Chmerkovskiy are balancing raising their newborn with their work on the show.
She couldn't share more details about the big day because she didn't want to get in trouble with her friends, but teased that the event "will be absolutely stunning and magical and the most perfect day.
