GMA Coverage Of DWTS Eliminated Couples, Judges Name Next Week’s Guest Judge

Lot’s of fun coverage today of the eliminated couples on Good Morning America thanks to the Vocal Vault, Karina, and @GMA. Plus, the judges announced Robin Roberts will be the celebrity guest judge on Dancing With The Stars next week (Awww, I love her). Note too how they said there will be a guest judge every week from next week forward (wow, ok, but, isn’t that a little much?) Also, note how Sean remarked in his interview that he and the producer had a disagreement which he thinks sealed his fate, but, I don’t think that had anything to do with him being eliminated, do you? I think his fan base was too small compared to Billy Dee’s (who I think should have left before Sean)? Let us know what you think. Below is more in detail…

ETA: Ricky Martin and Redfoo from the band LMFAO will also be judging in the next weeks as well as Mario Lopez and Julianne Hough as previously reported.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Mark Ballas Endorses Same Sex Couple Dancing On Dancing With The Stars (TAKE POLL)

Mark Ballas tells Rob Shuter of Pop Eater that even though there are some disadvantages, he’s fine if he were to get partnered with a male partner on Dancing With The Stars. Rob mentions the possibility of Ricky Martin dancing with him which Mark is open too. Mark also mentions another dream partner >>> PIPPA MIDDLETON!! Now, that would be a cool person to get on the show as well. More below and at the link.

“We have eight male professional dancers and one is gay,” Mark tells me. “I never dealt with the stigma, I was at a performing arts school, so it wasn’t an issue. I always thought if I were ever confronted about it, I’d just say, “Well, while you’re on the football field with a bunch of dudes, I’ll be dancing with a bunch of girls.”

Mark says straight men that are reluctant or just generally scoff at the idea of dancing should break out of their comfort zone.

“It doesn’t make sense that men wouldn’t want to dance,” he says. “How can you not want to dance with your girl? How can you not want to do that?”

Mark tells me that his first choice of celebrity dance partner next season would be Royal sister, Pippa Middleton, but would be totally fine with the idea of being the first American cast member to dance with a same sex partner.

“I would be totally cool with it,” Mark tells me. “There are other competitions where they have same sex couples. I’d support it. There is a slight inherent disadvantage. Two girls and two men just can’t move like a man and a woman. But you can try.”

So what about if he was partnered with Ricky Martin next season, “I’d be down!” says Mark.

So, what do you think? I’d love to see Ricky Martin dance on the show too…even if it’s with a male partner. This article makes me wonder if the show isn’t seriously considering the idea of a same sex couple dancing for next Season? If so, would you be game? Vote in our new Poll below if interested.
