Mya: 'The Pressure Is On' for 'Dancing'
Mya says that she's "having the time of my life" on "Dancing with the Stars" -- but that doesn't mean she's getting soft.
The singer, 30, has danced her way into the finals with Kelly Osbourne and Donny Osmond, and while she has "no complaints" about her experience, she's in it to win it.

"The pressure is on," Mya told "Extra" at Us Weekly's Skyy-vodka sponsored Hot Hollywood party Wednesday night.
"Because we're in the finals... we have to work ten times harder than we have before, and really dedicate ourselves and commit. I'm up for it, I'm up for the challenge," she adds.
The songstress has earned herself multiple perfect scores in the competition, is "grateful" for the scores, but thinks that it can be "intimidating" to keep up with her own high expectations of herself -- as well as the expectations of viewers.
To prep for the finals, Mya and her partner Dmitry Chaplin have been "going hard in the studio" -- and she hopes their work will please the viewers. "I hope I give a wonderful performance next week," she says.
"Dancing with the Stars" airs Monday on ABC.
