The Dancing With the Stars Season 18 judges got up bright and early to go on Good Morning America and reveal the guest judge for this Monday, March 31’s Week 3.
It’s none other than GMA anchor Robin Roberts, who will guest judge for the first time alongside all three judges as the fourth face at the table. Robin is awesome — everyone loves her — but what is her ballroom dance experience? She’s danced with Maksim Chmerkovskiy before, but does she have any training? More or less than Cher? Robin said she’s going to take the perspective of someone watching from home. That’s fair, but … cheerleader judges don’t often add a lot to the panel.
Anyway, Len revealed that from here on out, every week they’ll be joined by a guest judge. Future judges will include music stars Ricky Martin and Redfoo from LMFAO, plus a lady with a lot of DWTS experience, two-time champ Julianne Hough.
The Monday, March 31 theme is “Most Memorable Year,” celebrating a major year in the top 10 celebs’s lives. This is a Week 3 staple and it tends to be pretty emotional and memorable — although with a 17-year-old, a 23-year-old, and two Olympians who’ve shared a lot of the same life moments in the past 17 years, there may not be a lot of big moments to mine.
Twitter voting for “The Switch Up” is now open, and in its press release ABC uses this example: “to pair up celebrity Meryl Davis and professional dancer Derek Hough, use the Tweet “#DWTS Meryl Derek.” Just saying. They went there. In addition, abc.com will have a page dedicated to assisting viewers in casting their votes. There is no limit on the number of votes one person can cast. Twitter voting for “The Switch Up” remains open until Monday, March 31 at 11:59 p.m., ET. The new dance pairings will be revealed live Monday, April 7.
Are you excited to see Robin in the ballroom? Do you like the idea of having guest judges every week?
