Conflicting Schedule, Will Kim Johnson Dance In Dancing With The Stars Season 21?

As you know, Kym Johnson is currently judging the Australian version of Dancing With The Stars. According to the Herald Sun, Kym might not be able to dance in the US version of Dancing With The Stars since the grand final date for Dancing With The Stars Australia is “poised to clash” with the premiere of our version of Dancing With The Stars. Below is more on this issue….

A Seven spokeswoman confirmed the potential problem, with this year’s DWTS Australia grand final reportedly slated for September 13 — just as the US program gets dancing again.

But with some clever juggling and frequent flyer miles, Johnson could potentially do both — rehearsing routines here with any new partner, who would have to fly to Australia for the final two weeks of the local show; before they would both then be required to fly back to Los Angeles the morning after the Seven series signs off.

“If we find ourselves in this dilemma, there’s always a way to work things out. And we would because Kym’s part of the (Channel 7) family,” the publicist said.

It’s not unprecedented for a celebrity dancer to fly-in, fly-out for the US show, with Emmy-nominated choreographer Derek Hough jetting between LA and his starring role on Broadway in Radio City’s Spring Spectacular earlier this year.

So, what do you think? Will Kym be able to handle such a feat? I think it would be really hard. I wouldn’t be surprised if she skips our version this time.
