Good Morning America‘s Robin Roberts will be doing a little moonlighting. She will be a guest judge on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. Roberts will appear on the show next Monday, sitting beside the regular panelists at the judges’ table. She’s will be the first of various guest judges set to appear on the celebrity talent show this season. Others include Ricky Martin and Redfoo from the band LMFAO.
Roberts appearance will be a win-win for both shows. “Good Morning America usually gets a ratings boost when contenders from Dancing With the Stars appear for interviews, a big help in its own competition with the Today show,” reports The Grio.
“I’m really taking it seriously,” Roberts said on Good Morning America (via USA Today). “I’m going to have fun, but I’m really taking it seriously. Getting advice from people. Going to get out there early so I can study all the dancers.”
Do you think Roberts will make a good judge? We’re not familiar with any dance experience that she has, but judging some of the contestant’s moves doesn’t really require a dance background.
