It seems so. Catherine found this ABC press release yesterday that says Derek will be on Monday, the day BEFORE the cast announcement! It seems rather weird, however, that Brooke is still listed as being there for “behind the scenes dish” – but I think that’s a separate thing from DWTS.
On Monday, March 3, Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Lara Spencer, Josh Elliott and Ginger Zee will anchor live from Los Angeles, showcasing all the highlights, plus exclusive interviews with some of the celebration’s big winners. Multi-Grammy winning musician John Legend will perform live in our studio after singing at last night’s star-studded Governors Ball. “Dancing with the Stars” professional dancer Derek Hough will dazzle the audience with his renowned choreography. Additionally, Brooke Burke-Charvet will join the team with behind-the-scenes dish from the red carpet, plus the fashion experts will weigh in on the night’s red carpet hits and misses. Comedian DL Hughley brings us inside some of Hollywood’s exclusive after parties and model Camila Alves shows viewers how she got ready for her big night on the red carpet.
Then on Tuesday, March 4, GMA will exclusively reveal the new “Dancing with the Stars” celebrity cast in front of a live audience. Co-anchor Lara Spencer will report live from Los Angeles with “Dancing with the Stars” co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews as the hit reality competition show celebrates its 18th season.
