Leah Remini is pretty much part of the ‘DWTS’ family. For the second year in a row, she’ll reportedly be stepping in as co-host to fill in for Erin Andrews while she works the World Series!
From dancer to co-host she goes! Leah Remini competed on Dancing with the Stars‘ 17th season with partner Tony Dovolani, but this year she’ll be calling the shots alongside Tom Bergeron. The actress will fill in beginning Monday, Oct. 19, E! has reported, for Erin Andrews while she works the World Series as Fox’s MLB sideline reporter.
Leah isn’t the first to fill in this season. When Tom Bergeron stayed with his ill father on Oct. 5, DWTS champ, Alfonso Ribiero stepped in. So we have it on good authority Leah will do fine — plus, she did this last year when Erin covered the World Series (thanks a lot, baseball).
This coming week will be a big one for the dancers. Olivia Newton-John will be the guest judge for “Famous Dance” night, where each pair will do a tribute dance to a famous one. Here’s the full list of who’s performing what:
Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold: “Jailhouse Rock” from Jailhouse Rock
Alexa PenaVega & Mark Ballas: “I’m A Slave 4 U” by Britney Spears
Andy Grammer & Allison Holker: “Good Morning” from Singing In The Rain
Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough: “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing
Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson: “Pony” from Magic Mike
Hayes Grier & Emma Slater: “You’re The One That I Want” from Grease
Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess: “You Should Be Dancing” from Saturday Night Fever
Paula Deen & Louis van Amstel: “Vogue” by Madonna
Tamar Braxton & Valentin Chmerkovskiy: “Rhythm Nation” by Janet Jackson
