Tom Bergeron (America’s Funniest Home Videos) and Brooke Burke (Dancing with the Stars Season Seven Champion) will probably return as presenters while dancing experts Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba, are most expected to return on the show as judges.
People are given an opportunity to recommend celebrities they want to spot on Season 12 of the show through comments on the official website. No official word yet about how many stars there will be in Dancing With the Stars season 12. ABC might release names early if they’re scared of too many leaks coming out. The upcoming 12th season’s cast will be announced live during the finale of ‘The Bachelor’ on Feb. 28. In the lineup, Vince Neil, Mischa Barton, and previous Playboy bunny Kendra Wilkinson are allegedly eyeing spots until now and professional dancer and three-time ‘Dancing With the Stars’ champ Derek Hough will take off in this season to film his first movie, Cobu 3D but is anticipated to return for Season 13.
Conrad Green said in a statement to OnTheRedCarpet.com, “We wish Derek the best as he takes time off from Dancing with the Stars to pursue his film career and look forward to having him return to the show in the fall”.
