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)."
Why go: To hear "Midnight Train to Georgia," etc. and kick in "I Heard it Through the Grapevine¿ and "I Don't Want to Do Wrong."
Reconsider: You are going to wait for Knight's performance at Country Club Hills Theater on June 15.
8:30 p.m. Saturday at Star Plaza Theatre, 8001 Delaware Place, Merrillville, Ind.; $50; 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
