Dancing With The Stars judge Len Goodman has high hopes for fellow Brit Katherine Jenkins, but, says he won’t be playing any favoritism. Below is a take from UK MSN for more of his thoughts on her….
Ballroom expert Len, who also heads BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing panel, said: “I think Katherine will be good. She’s a gorgeous looking girl and I’ve got a feeling she’ll be OK at it. You never know until they do it, but my feeling is she’ll be alright.”
But Len admitted Katherine might be overshadowed by contestants who are better known in the US.
“That might be her stumbling block. Most of them over there I’m saying ‘I’ve never heard of you’, and they’re probably saying ‘I don’t know who she is’ but I’ve met her a couple of times and she’s a really charming, nice girl, so I’m hoping that the Americans will warm to her,” he said.
“I would like to see her do well but the people are not stupid and it would be so easy to sound like a fool if you had a bias towards anybody. I’ll just say it how I see it.”
I’m glad he plans to just say how he sees it. I love Len, but, sometimes he can get on my every nerve. lol
Heidi: Hopefully this doesn’t mean he will go the opposite direction in order to avoid looking like he has a bias – I think he’s done that before and it’s no better than having a favorite.
