Len Goodman Leaving 'Dancing With the Stars' After Season 20

Len Goodman Leaving 'Dancing With the Stars' After Season 20

Len Goodman will be leaving his post as a judge on Dancing With the Stars after the upcoming twentieth season, according to E! Online.

The 70-year-old dancing expert, who is also a judge on the UK’s Strictly Come Dancing, talked about his exit in an interview with Digital Spy.

“Next year, I’m not going to do the flying backwards and forwards – I’m not going to do the American show… I’ve got to have a bit of time off,” Len said. “I’ve got my wife, I’ve got my son, my mother is still alive and she’s in hospital – I’ve had virtually no time to go and visit her.

“So, I just need a bit of time off to get on with a normal life. And it was either Strictly went or the American one went or the tour went… I’m doing the spring one when I go out there… and that’s going to be my last one,” he added.

Julianne Hough was added to the judging panel this year to join Len and the other two original judges, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.
