There will be a new face at the judging panel on Dancing with the Stars next week!
Robin Roberts, co-anchor of ABC’s Good Morning America, will be joining Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba as a guest judge on Monday, March 31.
DWTS frequently has guest judges appear on the show, and Roberts will make the first this season. Other guests scheduled to appear are Ricky Martin, Julianne Hough, and Redfoo from LMFAO.
Roberts recently spoke about the opportunity, saying that she was definitely nervous, but was ready to take on something different and step out of her comfort zone. “I am nervous, yet you have to step outside your comfort zone,” she said. “I think I am going to take the perspective of those who normally watch at home.”
Roberts took to Twitter yesterday asking her followers if they had any tips for her. “Very excited/nervous about being a guest judge next week on #DWTS. If you have any tips..let me know. #Yikes!” she tweeted.

DWTS is currently in its 18th season, and there has long been a correlation between DWTS and GMA’s ratings. When contestants from DWTS appear for interviews on the morning news show, GMA’s ratings tend to spike.
