Dancing with the Stars was set to have TWO guest judges this week, for the first time ever. But alas, it was not meant to be, as former Spice Girl Emma Bunton had to bow out due to a scheduling conflict. That leaves ‘Nsync member, Joey Fatone, to serve as guest judge for Boy Band and Girl Group Week 9 on his own. The Dancing with the Stars Twitter account announced the news Monday morning (Nov 11). The episode airs tonight at 8 pm ET on ABC.
“Due to a scheduling conflict @EmmaBunton aka Baby Spice will not be a guest judge on tonight’s show,” writes DWTS. “@realjoeyfatone will still guest-judge alongside @carrieanninaba, @GrumpyLGoodman and @BrunoTonioli.”

Additionally, Sean Spicer’s professional partner, Lindsay Arnold, will not be back to dance this week. Jenna Johnson stepped in for Lindsay last Monday due to the death of her mother-in-law. Jenna will return for a second week as Sean’s dance partner. Maybe by the time Lindsay returns to DWTS, Sean will be voted off! Nah. Probably not.
