Lindsay Arnold Talks Theme Nights & New Voting System For DWTS Season 26

Lindsay Arnold Talks Theme Nights & New Voting System For DWTS Season 26

One of the big new things about the new Dancing With the Stars season is the new voting system, which is confusing a lot of fans.

However, it looks like the pros kind of have it handled – at least Lindsay Arnold does.

Speaking with TVGuide, the reigning pro champ opened up about her strategy: “It’s very different this time around. Two people are going to be going home every week, so it’s different than our normal season.”

“We’re not going to be kind of focusing on getting better week after week, it’s kind of like you’ve got to come out with your best moves and then show off every single week,” Lindsay explains.

“Our strategy is,” she adds, “first of all, we do want to get better because this is Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar]‘s first time doing all of the dances that I’m teaching him, so we know that it’s going to be a progress, and he’s going to get better as we go on, but we want to try to be as strong as we can Week 1.”

Lindsay also opened up about if this mini-season would have any theme nights, since it’s significantly shorter.

“Every single week is going to be a different theme obviously, but they haven’t really given us any of those,” she shared. “I think the typical one we usually have is a most memorable year dance, where we talk about the celebrity’s most memorable year. I’m guessing there’s going to be something similar to that, but we really are still going to find out about it as we go along.”

Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, April 30th on ABC.

DWTS Champ Lindsay Arnold Talks About The Huge Height Difference Between Her & Partner Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

DWTS Champ Lindsay Arnold Talks About The Huge Height Difference Between Her & Partner Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

You’ve probably noticed that there’s a HUGE height difference between reigning Dancing With the Stars champ Lindsay Arnold and her new partner, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

She’s 5’6″, he’s 7’2″ – and that’s the biggest height difference ever featured on the show. Ever. But somehow, they’ve got it handled.

“That’s definitely a challenge,” Lindsay tells TVGuide. “When you dance, there’s a lot of dances where you have to be closer in height to do them, but we are getting creative. We’re making it work.”

The height difference is actually a bonus for Lindsay, because she loves “pushing the boundaries and trying new things, and that’s something that we’re definitely going to do this season. I’m excited for it!”

She also share a bit about their first dance, a cha-cha.

“It’s quick, and it’s fun, and I think it’s going to be a really good style for Kareem and I. We are going to have less weeks this season, so we might not get to all of the dances, so I’m very excited that one of them we got to do was Cha Cha,” Lindsay says.

Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, April 30th @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC.

Lindsay Arnold Would Really Love If Nathan Chen Joined 'Dancing With The Stars' - Here's Why

Lindsay Arnold Would Really Love If Nathan Chen Joined 'Dancing With The Stars' - Here's Why

Lindsay Arnold has her eyes on a lot of athletes for the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars – but one of them is sticking out more – Nathan Chen!

The reigning champ (she won with Jordan Fisher last fall!) spoke to ET about her dream list for the all-athlete season and why she think Nathan would be perfect for the show.

“Nathan is someone who really inspired me during the Olympics because of his fight,” she says. “He came back so strong after a rough performance and absolutely killed it out on the ice.”

Obviously, Nathan and Lindsay both being from Utah is a plus, too.

“He is also a fellow Utahn, so that gives us an automatic connection.”

Lindsay Arnold Would Love To Be an All-Star on 'So You Think You Can Dance' If The Opportunity Was There

Lindsay Arnold Would Love To Be an All-Star on 'So You Think You Can Dance' If The Opportunity Was There

In the past few seasons, we saw a ton of familiar faces pop back up on So You Think You Can Dance as All-Stars and choreographers. Now, we’re wondering when, and if, it will be Lindsay Arnold‘s turn.

The 24-year-old dancer was in season 9 of the show (in 2012) and made it to the top 8 dancers, and since then, has been on Dancing With The Stars.

In the past seasons, Jenna Johnson, Val Chmerkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Emma Slater and Allison Holker have all popped up on the show as All-stars and choreographers. So, could Lindsay get that chance?

“I think since I was on SYTYCD, right after that I was on DWTS. It’s never really lined up in a way that I could do it,” she tells JJJ. “I would obviously love to, but I don’t think it’s ever been able to work out with me being a pro on DWTS.”

However, she would definitely be open to choreograph for the show.

“It was cool to see Val, Sasha and Emma choreograph this [past] season,” she shared. “I really want to do that too. All I would have to do is submit some of my choreography and try out for that.”

Lindsay promises JJJ that she’s definitely going to submit some of hers for the next season.

“That just looks like a lot of fun and it’s a different experience because you’re choreographing on two dancers. I think I could do some pretty fun stuff.”

So You Think You Can Dance was just renewed for season 15.
