More Info on S28 Potential Changes
Some might be interested on the link above from Kristyn Burtt about the potential changes for the upcoming season.
They claim, that will make many here, is they want to get back to the show's ballroom/latin routes and supposedly they held auditions in early May for new pro talent.
While I'm all for new talent as we've discussed at length here, I'm just in wait and see mode in that I expect to hire new talent, I likely won't agree with the decisions re: the show in terms of which pros they keep and kick to the curb.
I assume if they really want to focus on ballroomers, they will first ditch themselves of the Hayley's and Britt's who don't come from a ballroom background. Though of course the latter being one of only a few black pros, it's a bit more complicated than that. Especially since I don't expect to see Cheryl back this season so no Cheryl and no Britt in troupe makes for a very white pro roster. I know some people don't care about those things, but the lack of diversity also means that a large part of the audience don't get to see people that look like them (not talking to the celebs but the pros).
I also expect they will somehow fire pros like Emma, who has been always on the outskirts for TPTB, and they will make like Val and Jenna the center of the show. Which, barf.
Oh, the other good news is that Mandy Moor is gone! Though that is of her own choice, but if they show is going to go back to basics re: ballroom then getting rid of the non ballroom choreographer at the center of it is somewhat imperative.
