Dancing with the Stars says NO to Same Sex dancing?
Remember that “Who is Fancy?” singer Big Machine Record’s Scott Borchetta was trying to make happen with a surprise reveal?
He’s performing next week, November 23 on the Dancing with the Stars final, and according to TMZ, Fancy’s choreographer sent an email to DWTS producers making the suggestion that it would “be an awesome look to have 2 males dancing with each other.”
Fancy, who is openly gay, is debuting his new song “Boys Like You” featuring pop stars, Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor. The song is reportedly about “a man falling in love with another man.”
According to TMZ sources, after DWTS producers had a discussion, they replied in an email, “Apologies all but this is a definitive no from the network.”
ABC is allowing “near dancing” during the performance, similar to a routine danced recently by Alek Skarlatos and Carlos PenaVega.
TMZ reached out to ABC, and the rep said the network had no comment. A “high level” source told the website, “Creative conversations are ongoing about the dance number.”
