Derek Hough is replacing Len Goodman on Season 29 o ‘Dancing with the Stars’ as a judge. Goodman has to remain in the UK due to the coronavirus pandemic, so the 35-year-old dancer is returning to the show in the new role. Derek will join Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli at the judges table.
Speaking about his return to the series, Derek shared: ”This show has been and will always be incredibly special to me.Coming back feels like coming home and I couldn’t be more excited to be back in the ballroom.”
Len, 76, will still be a part of the show, but he’ll be sharing his dancing expertise remotely. The new season of the long-running program will also see Tyra Banks replace Tom Bergeron as the host.
