Dancing With The Stars Tom Bergeron Interviewed On Disney Night, Theme Weeks, And More

Tom Bergeron is excited for Disney Night on Dancing With The Stars since Donny Osmond and Auli’i Cravalho are performing. He’s also excited Alfonso Ribiero doing a performance as well. More below including his thought of other theme ideas and his tricky silence on his pick to win (lol). From TV Guide….


My frontrunner seems to change every week, I think this is one of the seasons with the most parity. Who is your current pick to win it all?

Bergeron: Yes.

Who is it?

Bergeron: I’m not gonna tell ya. I’ll make a promise, I’ll tell you after the season if they win and I was right. [Laughs.]

Disney Night on Monday! What should we be excited for?

Bergeron: I’m very excited about the young actress — I actually saw her teach Dwayne Johnson how to say her name. It’s Auli’i Cravalho. I thought not only is she wonderful in Moana, she blew it out of the water at the Oscars. So I’m excited about seeing her. Donny Osmond is coming back, we’ll have Alfonso [Ribiero] do a number with the cast off the top, former champion himself. Inevitably one of the things I love about, I get to interact with animation as well as Bruno. [Laughs.] I once told Bruno on air he’s about half a jester away from living in Pixar.

With the ABC/Disney synergy going on, there’s some great opportunities for other themed nights. I’d love to see a Marvel night, or a Star Wars night, do you think they’d be a good fit for Dancing with the Stars?

Bergeron: I know I’d love to see it as well. I don’t see any reason why the Hulk and Thor couldn’t promote their next movie by doing a Paso Doble!
