Some fans believe Shirley Ballas is joining Season 32 of DWTS
Some Dancing With the Stars fans believe there will be a fourth judge on the list for season 32, as they believe Shirley Ballas will be that judge after a cryptic Instagram Post Office.
The speculation came after Ballas posted a photo to Instagram that included part of a logo that some fans thought looked like the end of the “Dancing With the Stars” logo.
“Something so exciting is coming soon,” she wrote as the caption. “I can’t wait for you to find out what I’ve been working on. It will be wonderful. Please keep checking my Instagram grid to see the photo piece together. What could it be? Let me know your guesses… Xx.”
Fans immediately accepted comment section to suggest Ballas would be joining “Dancing With the Stars” alongside Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, although that’s unlikely to be her announcement.
“Your own dance school? Or dwts?” guessed a fan. Some fans too took to a reddit thread saying they think she’s joining the show.
Others thought it was more likely that the ballroom legend and “Strictly Come Dancing” star would announce a tour soon.
Shirley Ballas said there will be 3 judges
The reason Ballas is unlikely to be on Dancing With the Stars is because she previously announced the show would return to three judges instead of four following Len Goodman’s retirement.
In a segment on British talk show Loose Women Ballas shared that she had been in talks to join “Dancing With the Stars,” but wouldn’t because executives decided there would only be three judges.
“I think for now I’ve spoken [executive producer and showrunner] Conrad Green, I think for now they’re going to keep it three judges,” Ballas said. She previously said that she would like to take part in the show.
Shirley Ballas’ son Mark Ballas may be making a return to the ballroom
One of the reasons Shirley Ballas was interested in being on Dancing With the Stars was so she could see her son, professional dancer and mirrorball champion Mark Ballas, a lot more.
“You know, the bonus over there would be that I see my son every week. I miss him – we all have family – I saw him at Christmas, he came over for 10 days,” she shared during the segment, adding that she was in a “slump” when he left to go to the to return to the United States.
Mark returned to the ballroom for season 31 of the show after being away from the ballroom for five seasons. The dancer won the competition alongside his partner, TikTok star Charli D’Amelio. Shirley revealed that she helped Mark get ready to dance again when he finally took the job.
“He was offered the job on Dancing With the Stars, he hadn’t done it for five years. He says, ‘No mom, I’m not [going to do it]’ so I flew back to England ready for our launch show [for ‘Strictly Come Dancing’], about to go to our launch show and he’s like, ‘Could you fly back tomorrow mum? I’ve decided to do it, but I need to get back in shape,'” Ballas said on the talk show. “So I went out there and he had to keep up with me for two weeks! He’s back in shape.”
At the time of writing, no announcements have been made about Dancing With the Stars season 32, so it’s possible that Mark will return to the ballroom in search of another Mirrorball trophy.
