Dancing with the Stars Releases Emotional New Promo
The new promo is over a minute long, featuring shots from some of the most beautiful dances we’ve seen on the show in recent years. “Are you ready? ‘Cause I am! Let’s do this!” host Tyra Banks says in one clip.
The video also features comments from past contestants, including Bindi Irwin, who danced a tribute to her late father Steve Irwin with partner Derek Hough in Season 21. “His spirit lives on. That’s really what we’re gonna try to do for this dance,” she said. She went on to win the show.
The promo is set to the song “Higher Love,” which adds drama as more clips are showcased. In one shot, Season 30 contestant Amanda Kloots performs an emotional tribute to her late husband Nick Cordero. Runner-up JoJo Siwa says, “This whole experience has changed me so much.”
