Wow, what a coup this would be! Today, TMZ (which has been a good source for information for the the show in the past which ends up coming true) is reporting producers are on the hunt for more “high profile” celebrities for next season instead of “gimmicky” d-list stars they’ve booked in the past. Here is a take from the link for how they plan on doing it.
In order to lock down the BIG names, we’re told producers are offering A-listers complete control over their rehearsal schedule — telling them there’s NO minimum rehearsal requirements … and they can practice as little or as much as they want.
Celebs will also have final say on music selections and costume design … including colors, cuts and styles.
So far, no word if producers have signed any of the “high profile” people in their crosshairs.
So, what do you think? Will giving celebrities final say on certain things help in getting them signed? I think it might somewhat, but, in the end “money” talks the most I would think? I hope they can get some A-listers, but, I’ve liked some of the d-listers in the past and how the show has revived some of their careers or popularity. Even if it didn’t, it was great seeing them again. (IE: Jennifer Grey, Kirstie Alley, and Ralph Macchio to list a few).
