Dancing with the Stars Season 9 – Michael Flatley in for Len??

Celtic Tiger At Wembley Arena

I really, really, really hope this isn’t true. As cranky as Len can be (and he is particularly hard on my favorites, it seems :-) ), I really don’t want him to be replaced, even temporarily.  I do understand the possible health reasons, but I’m going to hope and pray that Len is all better and back in the center seat on DWTS in the fall.  Anyway, here are some excerpts from the article from “Irish Central” that popped up for me this morning:

Multiple sources confirmed to IrishCentral what has been a flurry of Internet buzz — that Flatley is being considered as a replacement for judge Len Goodman, who recently announced that he was recovering from treatment for prostate cancer.

Flatley has already appeared as a guest judge on the show, and was a huge hit with viewers. An industry source told IrishCentral that “Len would be almost impossible to replace, and we don’t want to replace him. But his health comes first. If he decides he needs the rest and wants to step down, how could we do better that Michael Flatley?”
