ABC has put the kibosh on 2 dudes dancing hip to hip on “Dancing with the Stars.”
On November 11th, sources connected with the show tell TMZ, the issue came up over an upcoming performance by an openly gay artist who goes by the name, Who Is Fancy. The performance is set for November 23, where he will debut his new song, “Boys Like You,” featuring Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor, who will also appear on the show.
The song is about a man falling in love with another man. TMZ learned Who Is Fancy’s choreographer sent an email to a ‘DWTS’ producer, saying, it would “be an awesome look to have 2 males dancing with each other.”
Sources say the ‘DWTS’ honchos discussed it and a producer fired back an email, saying, “Apologies all but this is a definitive no from the network.”
Who’s excited by a debut performance of a soon-to-be rising star with two biggest pop stars?!
