This might be my favorite show all season. It was such an honor to have the Emmy-nominated Mandy Moore in our studios. She gave us a candid look at the contestants and what goes on in those rehearsal rooms. For my DWTS fans, we will try and have her on in the fall since she brings so much to the table.
A couple of fun things we learned:
--They are not asking the choreographers' opinions on the contestants this year.
--Music clearance is challenging. Sometimes contestants find out the night before that their solo music cannot be used. Stressful!
--Mandy choreographs DWTS much differently than SYTYCD because she isn't ballroom trained. She said she relies upon Sasha, Emma, Jenna and Val to help her out in the studio.
--She also gives her thoughts on Shania Twain possibly joining the show…remember, Mandy choreographed her Vegas show!
Next week's guests are Nick Lazzarini, Season 1, and Jaimie Goodwin, Season 3.
