Access Hollywood caught up with judge Carrie Ann Inaba at the Emmy Awards last night. She had a few things to say about the premiere of Dancing With The Stars tonight and how the judging is going to be tougher this season. She said, “It’s going to be an intense season and they are going to look at detail”. She also talks of who she has her eye on and more (is she going to fair this season? I hope so. In my opinion, if she was going to mention a few people last night, she should mention them all?).
At the Emmy’s last night, Dancing With The Stars host Tom Bergeron made some comments about Maks Chmerkovskiy and if he was leaving the show. Tom was also asked on who he thought the front runner would be on Dancing With The Stars this season. I love what Tom said on both subjects. Always the class act. Details below….
“I talked to him yesterday,” Bergeron said of Chmerkovskiy. “He said it was taken out of context… it was end of his contract. I would fully understand that, but he’s going to be with us beyond this season.”
Chmerkovskiy is on contract through 2013, and Bergeron says that means there will be at least two more seasons of him on the show.
As for his pick for the frontrunner of the All-Stars season, which has six previous winners coming back to the ballroom, Bergeron was tight-lipped.
“If I answer, I’ll piss off 12 people,” he said.
