“Dance with the Stars”

Some fans of “Dance with the Stars” are upset about some of the upcoming special screenings for the show’s 31st season.

Hayley Erbert, a professional dancer who is the fiancé of six-time Mirrorball champion and Dancing With the Stars judge Derek Hough, shared a calendar on her Instagram Stories showing that she would appear twice on the show with Hough.

After that fans went to Reddit expressing dissatisfaction with the decision and lamenting the fact that professional dancers on “Dancing With the Stars” don’t always get the opportunity to showcase their work the way Hough and Erbert do on the show.

The two appear to dance together on “Buble Night” as well as a night a few weeks before the finale.

Fans want Hough to dance with the current “Dancing With the Stars” pros

In the Reddit threadFans said they think the show should highlight current professional dancers working on the show rather than Hough and Erbert.

“I know some people might not see a 3 minute dance as a big deal, but I know what it’s like for dancers who fight to have just that 1 minute of their creativity shown to millions,” one person wrote Reddit. “I think they should give the credit to someone else now this year.”

Many said they felt the same way.

“I totally agree with you, give the actual pros on the show a chance,” one person replied. “Or at least have Derek dance with a current pro. Or introduce someone new!”

another wrote, “I don’t mind seeing them, but I’d also like to see the other pros get the spotlight as well. I’m confident they will start doing that as they have promised more dancing now that there is no commercial. I personally would like a Daniella & Pascha dance.”

Some think Hough only dances on the show because he regularly receives Emmy nominations afterwards. Hough has received 12 awards and nominations, all but two of which have come from dancing on “Dancing With the Stars.” All three of his winning routines were performed on the show.

“I think her dances are well done, but they always seem the same to me.” a comment reads. “Besides, it’s just a way for Derek to win Emmy nominations for himself. I want the dancers who are actually on the show to have a chance to be highlighted.

another person wrote, “They’re going to feature someone who hasn’t even been on the show before they give minorities a chance to star in a big production number!”

Some fans love seeing Hough’s choreography

Some fans defended the decision to have Hough and Erbert perform multiple times.

“Hm, I enjoy the numbers myself because I like seeing Derek’s creativity and that doesn’t stop any of the pros from rehearsing with their stars this week.” one person wrote. “It would be cool to see him do a number with a pro who’s retired but is still out in a squad format … to show some love for the pros even if their stars leave early.”

Some people have gone so far as to say that they don’t want Hough to judge the show.

“I love Derek, but you’re right. Derek can dance but leave Hayley at home.” a comment reads.
