Pure Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Morning Media Start Up

Good Day All! Rise and shine!! First, how about some new pics of Julianne Hough at the Daily Mail. She looks so cute as she attended a Taylor Swift concert the other night. Derek Hough did so as well. You can view some new shots of him at Pure Derek Hough.

And for those wondering, Kaitlyn Bristowe will not be dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. It’s not the right time. You can read more at E Online. Allison Braver will not be dancing in this season either according to this tweet. Dang, she would have been a good one.

Also, US Weekly has a fun article about Nick Carter and some of the Backstreet Boys costumes he should recycle for Dancing With The Stars. *Awww, memories. Bring it, Nick! I can’t wait to see how he and Sharna will get creative in this area.

Excited to be a part of this season of @dancingabc! Thank you for all your support #dwts

Vogue over and out….for now!xx

A Few Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Judge Updates, New DWTS Promo Video

As you know from yesterday’s report, Len Goodman will not be a judge for Dancing With The Stars Season 21. However, he could be involved in some capacity. There are also plans to have guest judges.

Also, Lizze Grubman (Tony Dovolani’s publicist), confirmed at twitter last night that Tony Dovolani will not be a judge as we suspected.

And the question on all of our minds, will there be a new fourth judge? Nothing has been confirmed yet, but, Yahoo News has mentioned “a permanent fourth judge will not be appointed”. Thanks to Meghan for this heads up.

The guest judges filling Goodman’s shoes have yet to be named, but a permanent fourth judge will not be appointed.

Again, we stress, nothing is official or confirmed yet!! Judging very much seems to still be in the working stages?

Oh, and isn’t this new ad for Dancing With The Stars Season 21 fun? Thanks to Trisha Cannon for recording.

Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli Returning As Judges On Dancing With The Stars

Not only do we have an update for the Pro Watch (SEE HERE!), Executive Producer Rob Wade has confirmed to E Online that Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough, and Bruno Tonioli are returning as judges.

While DWTS had yet to finalize its cast when we spoke with showrunner Rob Wade, he told us fans could expect to see most of their favorites return for season 21. “I don’t think the cast will be much different than the one we’ve had the last couple of seasons,” he said.

Still, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any changes. So who’s definitely in and who might be out when the reality hit returns on Sept. 14?

The Judges: While Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli are all definitely returning to their seats at the judge’s table, the jury is still out on head judge Len Goodman’s involvement. (Goodman had previously said he was leaving the show prior to season 20, but then back-tracked.)

“It’s been back and forth the last year. I said to him, look, see how you feel,” told us. “I’m waiting. He’s in England, he’s working. I think there’s a good chance he’s not going to back for some of the shows…We’ll see where he lands, we’ll see how his health is, what he wants to do. But whatever happens this season, whether he comes back for some or none, the following season…I’m sure he’d be back for.”

For now, the show is once again looking at having some big names stop by to fill in for Goodman, with Wade confirming, “We’re looking at guest judges.”

Also, Val wants another mirror ball…

And fans shouldn’t expect Val Chmervoskiy to rest on his recent win with Rumer Willis, as the show’s casting director Deena Katz told us, “Three days after he won, he texted me like, ‘Babe, I need another one.’ I was like, ‘You just had one!’ And he’s like, ‘I need to do it again!'”

So yes, expect Val to return as well. (He even called and left a voicemail for Wade as we were speaking. No joke!)

EEk! More at E Online.

PureDWTS Season 21 POLL: Who Do You Think the New Judge Will Be?

DWTSGossip dropped this interesting tidbit yesterday:

newjudge

Which seems to point to Len finally bowing out as head judge, and some new blood being brought in to round out the panel.  All signs seem to point to a male judge (not sure I could handle a panel of Carrie Ann “I Score with My Vagina, Not My Brain” Inaba, Bruno the Flamboyant, and Julianne, who can be a bit hit-or-miss), and a lot of folks seem to think it’s Tony – likely because he expressed interest in the position in an interview recently. Others are throwing out Louis & Maks’ names, and yet others are thinking it’s someone different altogether – I fall in the latter, as my gut is telling me that DWTS might borrow from another country’s version of the show and tap Jean Marc Genereaux from Danse avec les Stars in France (and DWTSGossip did mention that he/she had heard that DWTS France “would be involved in some way”).  I think there’s also a possibility that DWTS may try to “borrow” one of the ballroom choreographers from SYTYCD (Jean Marc or Tony Meredith fit the bill), or we might see Corky’s name thrown back in the mix. I do think the new judge will likely be someone who specializes in ballroom, though, as Len’s shoes are big ones to fill in terms of ballroom experience.

So assuming all of this is true – who do you guys think the new judge might be, and why? Tell us in the poll and the comments!
