Bruno Tonioli Chats About Judging Dancing With The Stars, Key To Success, And More

The New York Daily is featuring a fun article about Dancing With The Stars judge Bruno Tonioli. He chats about what works the best for him when it comes to “judging” two hit dancing shows. He also mentions how “the key to beating rival shows like “The Voice” is for he and his fellow judges to get better at their jobs as the series heads to its finale each year.” More in this take…

“When they review that and they go again, the next take they do is actually worse, because instead of just being themselves, they begin to self-analyze,” he said. “They’re looking for the killer shot, and it doesn’t work. They lose the magic.

“If something goes wrong on my show, I want someone to tell me, but I don’t like watching myself,” said Tonioli. “The first take is always the most natural.”

The 57-year-old Italian believes the key to beating rival shows like “The Voice” is for he and his fellow judges to get better at their jobs as the series heads to its finale each year.

“If something goes wrong on my show, I want someone to tell me, but I don’t like watching myself.”

Tonioli also serves as a judge on the U.K. version of the reality competition, “Strictly Come Dancing,” and spends a great deal of time flying between Los Angeles and London.

“It is crazy I do the show here on Monday and then the U.K. on Saturday. It is hectic, but I am blessed to be working. From September to December, with all this traveling it is like an Olympic event.”
