Fan Tributes To Dancing With The Stars Judge Len Goodman Pour In
Sir Len Goodman retired as a judge on Dancing with the Stars at the end of Season 31, leaving behind an incredible legacy. His charming personality and insightful critiques made the show a must-watch for many fans. As a world-renowned dancer himself, he was often compared to the great Fred Astaire of the past. While celebs say kind words, let’s not forget that fans also have opinions, and possibly millions of people have mourned his death on social media.
Dancing With The Stars – Len Goodman Passed Away
When he left the Disney+ show, the famous dancer and judge said that he wanted to spend his golden years with his family. Perhaps, he knew that his time was limited. While others in the field of dance hoped to replace him, time was running out and he passed away from cancer on April 24. Just a day shy of his 79th birthday, many people were saddened.
Rising star of Dancing With The Stars, Derek Hough confirmed that there would not be a replacement for Len as such. Actually, he seems headed to be the next respected judge on the show. But, will anyone be able to really replace Len, who was equally respected on Strictly Come Dancing? Still, the next season of DWTS is months away, so for now, fans send in their thoughts for the old man.
Dancing With The Stars – Fans Pay Their Tributes
People in positions of public notice made their statements from royalty to other pro-dancers on the show. But as so many mainstream media outlets carried the story on social media, millions more tributes poured in. Not in flowery speeches, but with genuine sadness at Len’s passing. The BBC shared the news on Instagram and that seemed fitting because of Len Goodman’s popularity in the UK as well as in the USA.
Dancing With The Stars fans commented on the BBC post. Here’s what some of them said:
RIP Len, I still say Sevennnnn, and it’s [a] 10 from Len!! Loved all your quirky sayings. Hope you are pickling your walnuts up there!!❤️💔🌈✨️xx.
