'DWTS' Season 31 Finale: Will Cheryl Burke be seen on 'judges panel'? Fans hope so after her last emotional performance
'An exciting and fantastic final dance for Cheryl Burke. Here’s hoping we’ll see you on the judges’ panel in the future,' tweeted a 'DWTS' fanatic
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 31 finale episode is live! Fans have been speculating whether Gabby Windey, Charli D'Amelio, Shangela, or Wayne Brady will take away the Season's champion title. On the finale night, we saw Disney+ bringing in some of the old contestants and professional dancers on the stage who were eliminated in the middle.
Meanwhile, professional dancer Cheryl Burke who announced her departure from the show as a dancer was destined to perform with Derek Hough and Louis Van Amster. But due to Derek's injury, he wasn't able to join the finale night. The pro dancer donned the stage in a golden shimmery dress with her last jive on 'Copacabana'. Cheryl announced her departure on Instagram, saying, "Tomorrow night will officially be my final dance as a pro dancer on @dancingwiththestars. This has been one of the absolute hardest decisions of my life & I am also confident that it is the right one." Cheryl's last line saying, "I do have a few things up my sleeves though, so don’t worry," made many fans believe that she might return to the show as a judge if not as a dancer. 'DWTS' fans have been connecting the dots ever since Len Goodman announced his retirement from 'DWTS' and Cheryl announced her departure from the show as a professional dancer.
A fan took to Twitter, claiming, "An exciting and fantastic final dance for Cheryl Burke. Here’s hoping we’ll see you on the judges’ panel in the future." Another fan wrote, "I love you @CherylBurke !!! Good luck to you in the future!! You need to judge. Crying." To this, a fan replied, "I believe there will be an empty seat between Carrie Ann and Derek next season…" "Thank you @CherylBurke, I gonna miss you but I’m so excited for your future," claimed another fan.
