DWTS' Carrie Ann Inaba Reveals Fate of the Judges, Reacts to Tyra Banks as New Host

Carrie Ann Inaba is opening up about the big changes happening at Dancing With the Stars and she’s revealing the fate of the judging panel.

It was just announced that the show’s longtime hosts have been fired and they are being replaced by Tyra Banks, who will be the show’s new executive producer.

“I feel like it was just such sudden news. My heart breaks for Tom [Bergeron] and Erin [Andrews],” Carrie Ann said on The Talk‘s episode that will air July 21.

“I cried when I heard the news, as well as, I think a lot of our fans did,” she said. “People have been saying that Tyra is the first black host of Dancing with the Stars, and I just want to clarify, because season one we had Lisa Canning… Also, I don’t think that’s how we should be labeling her. She’s our new host. Period. It has nothing to do with the color of her skin. I think it has to do with all that Tyra Banks is. All the energy she has. She’s like a visionary, she’s a strong, powerful woman…I think we’re in good hands. It’s different, the fans are going to have to get used to it, I understand that, but I think we should welcome her.”

So, will Carrie Ann and the other judges return for the upcoming season?

“As of now, that is the plan,” she said. “I just want everybody to know Len [Goodman], Bruno [Tonioli] and I, that is the plan that we’re coming back. But they’re going make the official announcement in a few weeks. They’re just going to keep letting us know all the details. I don’t want people to worry. It seems like everything is okay.”
