    Why of all people, have Charo with keo….He’s too.good not to make it to the mirrorball

  2. FRANK Satira says:

    I think the show needs a face lift, start with the judges fire all of them, except for Burno.
    Also stop rushing the dancers off the
    show, I would like to hear more of what they have to say. Oh I forget the girl’s name that replaced Brook, but bad choice. I may watch the first week just to see how it looks, but with the cast I just saw, not impressed at all.👎

  3. I stopped watching DWTS because they have pro skaters and gymnasts on the show. Very unfair.

  4. Steven Meyers says:

    I have to go with Simone. It is a natural fit, as was Laurie last season. I look for a back-to-back Olympic Mirror Ball.

  5. Heather Morris win…I like her…She can dance…She is so beautiful…

  6. Sonia says:

    5 black people and they all have white partners.
    That’s disgusting.

  7. De Davis-Guy says:

    To quote Guardians of the Galaxy,,,. Who?

  8. dk17111 says:

    I’m offended Chris kattan is dancing as a “celebrity” as well as calling him “a comedian”

  9. derek117 says:

    My early pick is Heather Morris to win, but Simone Biles could score an upset.

  10. Sonics79 says:

    Liking this season’s cast like the last one as this will be another competitive season. I’m interested to see between Simone Biles and Normani from Fifth Harmony who gets more votes although I believe Biles will win it. Nancy Kerrigan will be interesting in this as she could get far here.

  11. Sonia says:

    Yah the elites could never have
    a black couple dancing.
    That would be too disgusting. A bad example of the idea that there is such a thing in black culture as a black couple.
    Not kosher.

  12. Sct says:

    Out of 12 celebrities, 4 are black, 33 percent of the celebrities. 
    And the one black professional dancer is not good enough to dance with a black partner????????????!!!!!!!
    In other words, the black celebrity females(2)
    are not good enough to have the black male professional dancer??????!!!!!
    Continuing the ethnic racist theory that
    even blacks don’t like blacks ?????
    Black men are only interested in white women because black women are not good enough for them?????!!!!!!
    That’s one of the reasons
     I stopped watching long ago. Oh and Cheryl 
    ALWAYS got paired with the ethnic men….
    Always. It was disgusting savage racism.

    Good to see Mango is there. I guess. But definitely Mr. T. And that horrible web site that says Mr. T is dead. He isn’t. And that’s good news. Because all the rest from the A-Team TV show (never that terrible movie) that we liked so much are dead now. All of them. Except for Mr. T. And thanks Robert for loaning out your wife back where you first met her. As a contestant. (sorry Kym). And Nick. Haven’t we seen enough of Nick? I mean, really. Nick, again? Who dissed a 24yo contestant (the only hottie in the bunch) when she ripped her shirt off to show Nick what’s she’s got. Wrong move to the wrong person. No, I didn’t say “man.” Now, anytime you have a 36yo male flinching when a 24yo “wife wannabe” shows him the stuff she’s made of, what does this make you think? About that 36yo male? About any 36yo male? Yes, we’re all on the same page with this.
