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.

More at the Herald Sun.

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.

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 . To view my photography site, see Lisa Kay Photography.

Random DWTS Trivia: Thor Does the Samba???!!

It’s a slooooowwww news day in DWTS land, so how bout a little random tidbit of DWTS trivia to keep us all entertained…and possibly titillated? 😉

I think we all know that doing DWTS in the States can revive a slumping career, or kick-star a new one…but the same apparently holds true for international versions of DWTS.  Case in point? Looky who was shakin’ his hips on the Australian version a little over 5 years ago…

Yes, chirren, that is none other than Chris Hemsworth – probably best known Stateside as Thor.  Samba-ing his very toned tush to “Jump in the Line (Shake Senora)” by Harry Belafonte.  I think my ovaries just exploded.

Who would have thought that 5 years later, he’d be making hearts palpitate on the silver screen…as the Norse god of Thunder?


Happy Hump Day, ladies.  🙂

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, baker, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.
