Dancing with the Stars is set to premiere tonight and fans should look forward to an amazing cast for DWTS 2021. While the season could turn into anyone’s game, here are our predictions for the winners of Season 30!
While this season’s pairings won’t be announced until tonight’s episode, fans have a star-studded cast to keep them excited. Some of the highlights of this year’s cast include former Bachelor Matt James, Melanie C from the Spice Girls, Youtuber Olivia Jade and YouTuber JoJo Siwa.
The full cast includes, Martin Kove from The Karate Kid, Olivia Jade, NBA player Iman Shumpert, The Miz, Kenya Moore, Christine Chiu, Jimmie Allen, Matt James, Brian Austin Green, Melanie C, Melora Hardin, Olympic gymnast Suni Lee, JoJo Siwa, Cody Rigsby, and Amanda Kloots.
JoJo Siwa will make history by being the first Dancing with the Stars contestant to have a same-sex dance partner. The YouTuber and former star of Dance Moms, recently came out as gay and has amassed a large following on social media.
With her years of dance skills, many fans are predicting that JoJo could win the mirrorball trophy, but there are other skilled contestants that could give the 17-year-old a run for her money.
Other predictions say Cody Rigsby and Amanda Kloots are potential winners for Season 30. While many DWTS fans might not recognize his name, Cody Rigsby has become known for his Peloton dance classes and has built up quite a following. He is also a former backup dancer for singer Katy Perry. So we know that his dance skills will be off the charts.
Amanda Kloots might be the co-host of The Talk, but that doesn’t mean that fans should underestimate her skill. The talk show host once graced the stage of Broadway and was also a former Rockette! She has some serious dancing skills under her belt after performing in shows such as Follies and Bullets Over Broadway.
Kloots might also be able to gain sympathy from the crowd and become a fan favorite since her husband passed away last year after a long and public battle with Covid-19. If she is paired with a strong dance partner then we predict that she’ll be standing on stage with the mirrorball trophy in her hands.
This year’s season will be judged by Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruce Tonioli, and head judge Len Goodman, who wasn’t able to participate in Season 29 of DWTS because of Covid-19 travel restrictions. Season 30 will mark 16 years of the dance show being on the air. The season will run every Monday until the season finale, which is scheduled for sometime in November.
Tyra Banks is scheduled to return as the host of the show despite the mistakes that happened during last year’s live show. She has since moved past the backlash that she received and hopes that this season will go forward without the unnecessary drama.
Tyra said “We are a team. And sometimes you have to take darts for the team, and I took them. And will continue to take them. … I was blamed for it, and it wasn’t me. And I think that’s very important to say.”
Two of the DWTS professional dancers have announced that they will not be returning to the stage this season. Keo Motsepe and Peta Murgatroyd told the world that they will not be coming back to the ballroom for Season 30 and while they are sad that they won’t be joining in on the fun, Motsepe told Us Weekly that he wishes this season’s contestants the best of luck.
Fans of Dancing with the Stars can watch the Season 30 premiere tonight on ABC.
