‘Dancing With The Stars’ Likely To Return For 29th Season After “Resurgence” – TCA

  • Deadline
‘Dancing With The Stars’ Likely To Return For 29th Season After “Resurgence” – TCA
Dancing With the Stars is likely to return for a 29th season after ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke called the last season “resurgent.”

Burke admitted that it hadn’t made a final decision to renew the BBC Studios-produced show, but told Deadline that she expected it to return.

“The show had a terrific season, use the word resurgent for a reason,” she said.

The 28th season of the series premiered on September 16 and ran through until November 25 with Bachelorette star Hannah Brown beating out the likes of country music singer Lauren Alaina, actor and Nickelodeon star Kel Mitchell and Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke to win the competition.

Last year’s series also caused controversy with the casting of Donald Trump’s former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and progression to the quarterfinals despite his very poor dancing as well as the elimination of fan favorite James Van Der Beek.

Karamo says ‘Dancing with the Stars’ champ Hannah Brown was ‘perfectly designed for that dance floor’

Karamo says ‘Dancing with the Stars’ champ Hannah Brown was ‘perfectly designed for that dance floor’
Karamo didn’t win “Dancing with the Stars,” but he is psyched that Hannah Brown did.

“I think that this was one of the best competitions and Hannah worked her butt off. She did such a great job,” the “Queer Eye” star told “Us Weekly.”

Hmm, “best” might be debatable there.

Brown and Alan Bersten beat Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson for the Mirrorball trophy last week. Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber placed third, and Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko were in fourth place. Karamo, who finished in eighth place with Jenna Johnson, had nothing but high praise for all four couples who duked it out in the finale. “Everyone did such an awesome job,” he said. “And I mean, Hannah was perfectly designed for that dance floor and she took home the Mirrorball.”

Witney Carson on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ being a popularity contest: ‘That’s just something that you have to know’

Witney Carson on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ being a popularity contest: ‘That’s just something that you have to know’
For the second season in a row, Witney Carson came up just short on “Dancing with the Stars,” finishing in second place last week with Kel Mitchell. While she’s cool with the placement, the pro acknowledges that she wanted to win (duh) and isn’t that surprised they didn’t because of the structure of the show.

“I just kept thinking I’ve been here before, been here before and I really want that Mirrorball so bad,” Carson told PopCulture.com. “I’ve been so close to it so many times and it’s been a long time since I’ve actually won. Just to be there was obviously an honor, everybody was amazing, but of course you want to win. It’s a popularity contest and America chose who they wanted and it wasn’t us, unfortunately and that’s just something that you have to know. It’s fine.

Cheryl Burke: ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is ‘not authentic to what the show is anymore’
James Van Der Beek isn’t the only one who thinks “Dancing with the Stars” needs to do a deep post-mortem after Season 28.

In her final “Us Weekly” blog for the season, Cheryl Burke speculates that she doesn’t think Van Der Beek was speaking specifically about his surprising elimination in the semifinal when he said that the show needs to do “a little soul-searching,” but rather about the series in general and how it’s deviated from its core.

“What [the judges] did to him was harsh. I think just the world we’re living in right now, there’s no grounding,” Burke wrote. “People need to actually talk from their hearts and instead, people are on the defense constantly. People are always trying to prove themselves when really you need to just be yourself and be authentic and whatever that is to you. I think that’s what this show is missing.

James Van Der Beek has thoughts on his ‘Dancing with the Stars’ elimination (duh), but doesn’t want to get into it yet
James Van Der Beek made a welcome return to the floor on Monday’s “Dancing with the Stars” finale, a week after he was shockingly eliminated by the judges in the semifinal — something he wasn’t ready to discuss yet.

“I don’t think it should be done while there’s still confetti on the floor,” he told “USA Today” after Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten were crowned champions. The paper noted that Van Der Beek paused for “15 long seconds” before declining to answer how he felt about the judges booting him over Ally Brooke. “I really don’t want to take away from the winner or the other finalists who worked their butts off,” he said.

Van Der Beek was axed in his first appearance in the bottom two, shortly after he revealed his wife Kimberly had suffered a miscarriage two days prior, as the judges chose to save Brooke for the third time.

Carrie Ann Inaba: Hannah Brown’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ win was ‘not what I expected’
You may not have been surprised by Hannah Brown‘s “Dancing with the Stars” victory — she was the odds-on favorite after all — but Carrie Ann Inaba sure was.

“It’s not what I expected,” Inaba told “Us Weekly” of the results. “But this whole season has been filled with ups and downs and unexpected twists and turns. I think, always, the right person wins on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ because it’s a collaborative vote between the judges’ scores and the audience. And what the audience says is very important and we honor it.”

Interesting choice of words considering the judges overrode what the fans were telling them three times this season by saving someone, Ally Brooke, who was clearly and unfortunately not bringing in the votes. But it is true the show honored the fan vote on the finale by having the winner be determined the usual way through

Hannah Brown initially thought she had come in second place on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Hannah Brown looked completely dumbfounded when she and Alan Bersten were announced as the winners of “Dancing with the Stars” — and that’s not because she didn’t think they could win, but she thought they had finished in second place.

“I’m in complete shock. When they said our names, I thought it was for the runners-up, so I don’t think I even know how to process how I feel right now,” Brown told “Entertainment Tonight” (watch below).

Brown and Bersten beat out Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson for the Mirrorball, while Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber finished in third, and Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko came in fourth. The former Bachelorette was the only contestant this season to never fall into the bottom two.

“I’m super thankful and filled with gratitude for the experience. Even the hard times, but the fans just stuck it out with us,

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the Season 28 finale of “Dancing With the Stars” on ABC. The winner is revealed in this post.

When Hannah Brown’s name was called Monday night on the dance floor, she had no idea she won.

“I was in complete shock. I didn’t even know my name had been called as the winner — I heard my name, but I thought it was just as the runner-up,” Brown tells Variety in one of her first interviews since winning “Dancing With the Stars” Season 28 Monday night on ABC.

“I haven’t gotten out of that initial state of not knowing what the heck is happening,” she says. “I’m just really grateful because I have been challenged and pushed, but I’ve also been supported by people who have rallied around me and made this possible. I feel an overwhelming

Kel Mitchell says finishing in second on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is ‘still a win’
Kel Mitchell was thisclose to winning “Dancing with the Stars,” but he says there’s no disappointment in coming in second place.

“It’s still a win. It’s all good,” the “All That” alum told “Entertainment Tonight” (watch below). “We had a blast. It was super fun. It was an awesome journey, so no sad faces.”

Mitchell and Witney Carson, who were in the bottom two once this season in Week 3, were edged out by Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten, the only pair who was never in the bottom two. They earned a perfect 30 for their repeat of their “High School Musical”-inspired jazz number, but Len Goodman dinged them a point for their infectious hip-hop freestyle being too similar to their jazz.

Mitchell and Carson’s 59 was the second highest score of the night, behind Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber‘s perfect 60. Brown and Bersten got a 58, and Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko,

You’ve no longer got male: Hannah Brown is the first female ‘Dancing with the Stars’ champ in 5 seasons

You’ve no longer got male: Hannah Brown is the first female ‘Dancing with the Stars’ champ in 5 seasons
“Girl on Fire” indeed. Hannah Brown’s “Dancing with the Stars” victory on Monday ended a four-season streak of male champs and equalized the number of male and female winners.

Now “Dancing” has an even 14 male winners and 14 female winners through 28 seasons. As Thanos would say, “Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.” What’s interesting about its champs, though, is a bunch have come during some one-gender domination. Seasons 2 through 5 were won by men; Seasons 15 through 18 were won by women; and Season 24 through 27 were all dudes again.

Had Kel Mitchell, who finished second, prevailed, it would’ve marked the longest win streak by either gender at five straight.

They didn't always get the highest scores, but Hannah Brown, the star of The Bachelorette, and her pro dance partner Alan Bersten took home the mirrorball trophy in the Dancing With the Stars season 28 finale. "I honestly didn't. It might come as a shock," Alan said on Good Morning America when asked whether he knew during the competition that they were going to be the couple to beat. "Everyone was so good this season. There was one week when Hannah did the quickstep, and I was like, 'You know what?

Hannah Brown won ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ but how does she compare to the last 27 Mirror Ball champions? [Poll]
As Gold Derby’s official odds predicted, “The Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown won the Mirror Ball Trophy on November 25 at the end of the season 28 finale right after getting her first ever perfect score for her freestyle routine (watch it below). But how does Brown compare to the Mirror Ball champs who came before her? Refresh you memory by looking through our gallery of all 28 winners above, and then vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.

Brown’s victory makes her the first “Bachelorette” ever to win the Mirror Ball, but the second from the “Bachelor” extended universe, following Melissa Rycroft, who finished third in season eight before coming back to triumph in the all-star edition in season 15. Rycroft won season 13 of “The Bachelor,” but her suitor, Jason Mesnick, broke off their engagement to marry that season’s runner-up. Brown also had a heartbreak before her “DWTS

Did Len Goodman’s low score for Kel Mitchell’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ freestyle cost him the Mirror Ball Trophy? [Watch]

Did Len Goodman’s low score for Kel Mitchell’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ freestyle cost him the Mirror Ball Trophy? [Watch]
Kel Mitchell was arguably the most improved dancer of the season on “Dancing with the Stars,” to the point that he was regularly getting 10s from the judges in the last few weeks of the competition. So it was especially surprising when he was the only celeb in the Finale who failed to get a perfect 30 out of 30 for his freestyle routine, at which point the judges were at their most generous. Did Len Goodman rob him of a 10, and perhaps rob him of the Mirror Ball Trophy too? Watch Mitchell’s freestyle above.

Mitchell rose to fame on the 1990s sketch comedy series “All That,” and his pro partner Witney Carson hearkened back to that era with her choreography to “Jump” by Kris Kross. It was a throwback that made Carrie Ann Inaba‘s “inner Fly Girl so happy,” and Bruno Tonioli loved the “exhilarating” way the tempo of

Who Won Dancing With the Stars Season 28?
Another season of Dancing With the Stars has come to an end, and congratulations are in order.  Hannah Brown of The Bachelorette just took home the mirrorball trophy for season 28 of Dancing With the Stars, with Kel Mitchell placing in second, Ally Brooke in third, and Lauren Alaina in fourth place.  With only 30 seconds left in the broadcast to react, all Hannah and partner Alan Bersten could really do was scream.  "I don't know what's happening!" Alan yelled. Neither do we, honestly.  With three minutes to go in the show, the finalists were still getting good luck messages from friends and family, so it was definitely a tight, rather strange finale.
