  • Ric

    Yes!!!!! She is the only one who could get me to watch that show. So beautiful and talented!

  • Renee

    I hope this is true! She was always my favorite.

  • Alyssa

    Best news ever!

  • Danny

    Finally a good decision by the show. I hope she does some dancing too.

  • Cheryl

    Like her as a dancer but not as a judge. She came from left field when she criticized Maks. I won’t watch with her as a judge.

  • Rocko

    I’ll watch. She is gorgeous! Is she single? Love

  • Ken Gordon

    The good news is she is coming back. The bad news is that I will have to watch that show now lol . Looking at her will be worth it though.

  • Sarah

    So excited for the new season now!

  • K23

    Ugh, such a bad idea. She was snide and condescending as a judge, focusing her critiques on the professional dancers rather than offering helpful criticism to the celebrities. Hope this isn’t true. Also, why do they need a regular 4th judge anyway? Overkill.

  • Dave

    This story better be true because I have my hopes up now.

  • Penny

    I’m thrilled about this news! We saw her show with her brother this summer, and it was fantastic! I wish she was coming back as a dancer, but judging is good too.

  • Frannie

    This is the best news I’ve heard in a long time! I hope they confirm it soon.

  • Ben

    It’s an evil plot by the show to get people like me to watch who would never watch it otherwise. It worked! I’m in!

  • Ginny

    I hope this is true! I love her!

  • Mala


  • niki

    Awful decision. I’m no longer a viewer if this is true.

  • Cate

    Please let this be true! I stopped watching the show when she left, but I’ll watch again if she is on.

  • Chad Otero

    We saw her show this summer and it was incredible. I wish she was coming back to dance, but I’ll settle for her judging.

  • maddie

    Yes cause this is just what we need another judge. Plus she is way too harsh on the other pros in comparison to her brother who she is always favouring and what not. Its bad enough the other judges are favoring Derek but to add a fourth really?! She sucks at judging, she’s way too much of a b*tch and you have seen it twice with the way she critiqued Mark Ballas and Maks!
    She should just stick to what she knows best and thats dancing and leaving the judging to real pros!

  • Nancy hixson

    I do not care for her. Will not be watching.

  • Darla

    I’m so happy she’ll be on the show! I’m really excited about this season. I hope they get some good stars!
