Simon Cowell as a Guest Judge on MY DWTS?? New Interview with New EP Rob Wade

Not on my DWTS, please. He’s one of those guys who thinks he knows everything about everything but really doesn’t know all that much about anything. But hey, if you’re hot, you’ll be a hit whether you can sing…I mean dance, or not. But really – how funny would it be if Simon got to be Guest judge and Maks didn’t?   From The TV Page:

Usually when they bring a new boss into a show it is so they can shake it up…
Yeah, but this time it is not.  The show did really great last season.  Quite early on in the season, Conrad who was the EP decided to leave.  He had done 18 seasons.  He decided he wanted a new challenge.  So in this case the show is doing great and we have to be really respectful of the format.

So how are you going to put your stamp on the show?
Look, viewers love the show.  I would be a fool to go in there and say, “I want to put my stamp on this.  I am going to go in there and shake things up.”  But there are a couple of significant changes that I am in the process of making that I think people will notice.

How many judges do you think will be on the panel?
For the moment, we are looking at three.  There is a possibility for a fourth.  We are talking about that possibility.  But we have to see.  I think you have just got to get the right mix of people.  I think Bruno (Tonioli) , Len (Goodman) and Carrie Ann (Inaba) are brilliant.  Certainly wouldn’t lose any of them…

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Teases On Pro Dancers Coming Back??

Thanks to @DWTSGossip for seeing this instagram. Does this little tease from Dancing With The Stars mean Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani, and Maks Chmerkovksiy are returning or is this just a random post? The instagram below is posted with this text: “We can’t wait to see our pros back on #DWTS this fall!” Whatever the case, things are started to warm up in Dancing With The Stars land….

How has your summer away from Dancing with the Stars gone so far?

I HAVE HAD A GREAT SUMMER! I always try to keep myself busy with shows and dancing and improving myself as a dancer.

But I must say I am having major DWTS withdrawals. Although the world cup this year kept me busy too J

We hear you are embarking on a summer dance teaching tour soon. Can you tell us more about it and what it’s about? How can fans take part in it?

Yes I will be touring Tucson, Phoenix and finishing up in Las Vegas. Basically I love to teach and I love to see people fall in love with this art form called dance! I will be doing a number of workshops and lessons and little demonstrations. I’m very excited as this is my first one of this little tours! I mainly just travel for shows where I perform so this one is a little different. For bookings please call Stacey Newman on 602 5253842 There is a big ball on the 18th of July where I will be dancing!

“The Walking Dead” Alum Vincent M. Ward Campaigning Hard To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

The “Walking Dead’s” Vincent Ward is campaigning to be on Dancing With The Stars. Take a look at his twitter page when you get a chance. It’s full of the hashtag: #VincentMWardDWTSSeason19!! Normally, we don’t post on many campaigns, but, I’m starting to wonder on this one as it just gives a person that “feeling”. The Examiner asked him more about it. Read below….

Ward’s Twitter page is home base to a slew of impassioned tweets directed to the official “DWTS” account. Nearly all of the messages ask producers to include him as part of the fall 2014 cast. Even Ward is taking part in the effort being made on his behalf, posting creative images of his own that feature his head atop various dancers’ bodies along with the tag “#vincentmwardDWTSSeason19.” The most heavily retweeted image features Ward standing in front of red text that features the #vincentmwardDWTSSeason19 hashtag as well as the show’s name.

When asked by Examiner to explain his desire to compete, Ward’s answer was a simple one. “[D]ancing with my 1st love when I was younger,” he tweeted. Although he had no preference when it came to which female pro he might join on the dance floor, he expressed admiration for season 18 winner Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s “style and charisma.” He also named reality star Jack Osbourne, actor Jaleel White, rapper Lil Kim, and NFL legend Jerry Rice as his favorite former contestants.

I think he’d be a good one for Cheryl or Karina. Heidi, what do you think? Could this be someone we better watch out for?

Heidi: Campaigners RARELY make it on to the show, and I don’ t see this time as being any exception to that rule. And if he’s trying too hard to get on to the show, odds are that he’ll try too hard when he’s ON the show. So, my initial vote is a “no”. :-)
