Dang. 18 seasons!! That’s INSANE. And yeah, I am probably going to watch this mess again, because what else is there to do? Anywho, Derek Hough said on GMA this morning that there is a new twist this season (aside from firing the entire band and band leader and Brooke Burke Charvet).
“This season, America will be given the power to vote and change celebrities and professional dance pairings,” he said. “This new rule will affect all couples as they will be required to switch partners at a point in the season. Never before have dance partnerships been split up during the course of competition.”
This has the potential to be both a disaster and hilarious. Which means I will be definitely tuning in. Even though the list of celebs is a tad bit boring.
