Dancing with the Stars is flipping the tables on the judges.
Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli are doing what they never have before: They’re joining the dancers.
Obviously leaving out Julianne Hough in that one because she was in the competition first. Still, it will be the first time as a judge that she’ll be hitting the dance floor to help the contestants.
Each judge will turn coach for next Monday’s episode and will be paired with one of the four remaining couples for the performance show. According to E! News, each one of the coaches will have final say over the song, dance style and creative direction in each of the performances. Each performance will be judged by the three judges not dancing.
Len Goodman will be paired with Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough (which hopefully means Hough is back to being in perfect health after his foot injury.)
Julianne Hough will be with Riker Lynch and Allison Holker. (Obviously, they weren’t going to pair her with her brother, but that would have been so much fun to watch. At least we get to see her with Lynch, her cousin.)
Carrie Ann Inaba will be coaching Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess.
And last, but not least, Bruno Tonioli will be paired with Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy.
Aside from the judges hitting the dance floor, All-Stars champion Melissa Rycroft will also be back performing a dance that will be seen in the upcoming Dancing with the Stars: Live! tour.
Dancing with the Stars airs Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC.
