DWTS Season 21 End With A Bang TV Ratings, Tour Additions And Dances, And More

Just some “end of the season” tidbits. According to Disney ABC, “Dancing with the Stars” will return for its 22nd season in 2016 on MONDAY, MARCH 21 from 8:00-10:01 p.m. ET with an all-new cast of celebrities ready to take on the competition and hit the ballroom floor. They are also promising “another season full of surprises and unforgettable dances”.

As you know from Dancing With The Stars this week, Alek Skarlatos has been added to the DWTS Live: “Dance All Night” Tour. According to a press release, there are still more guest stars to be announced. I wonder who they will be? Also, 6 matinees have been added to the tour according this instagram. For tickets, see this link. Below are some dances that will be featured in it…

I think this dance might be featured too. Not sure?:

Lastly, congratulations to Dancing With The Stars ending the season with a big bang! Our show is alive and well and don’t believe anything otherwise if some source tries to tell you something different. I love how in the seasons past some sources out there tried to report that the show was tanking and wouldn’t be around much longer. Well, let the numbers speak for themselves….again. 😀 And Miss Heidi is an expert on this. She can explain it better than anyone we know…
