Robin Roberts Will Guest Judge on “Dancing”

By: Erin Hall - March 26, 2014

It has been an eventful few months for Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts. In December, she introduced the world to her girlfriend, Amber Laign. In February, she co-hosted Red Carpet Live.

And now, Dancing with the Stars judges announced, she will be the first celebrity guest judge to feature on the hit reality show. Now on its 18th season, DWTS has resisted the guest-judge trend for longer than many similar reality shows.

The decision was announced on Good Morning America this past Tuesday, March 25th. Each celebrity will be asked to dance a dance that expresses the most memorable year of his or her life. Other celebrities slated to make guest appearances on the show include Julianne Hough and Ricky Martin.

“I am… nervous,” Roberts said after regular judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Toniolo gleefully congratulated her.

“We love guest judges,” exclaimed Inaba.

“We’ll have great fun together,” Toniolo assured her.

Roberts took to Twitter for advice and received plenty of encouraging responses.

Perhaps Roberts simply felt out of practice. She last showed off her dancing skills in 2010 when she danced the cha-cha with DWTS second season contestant Maksim Chmerkovskiy after a day of training from the show.

Watch Roberts’ debut as a guest judge on DWTS Monday, March 31st.

    Setting everything aside of any question, what makes her a judge in dancing prey tell? I don’t get this at all………I know everyone loves her but………she is no more qualified to judge dancing than the man in the moon!
