Season 18 of Dancing With the Stars will have a few surprises, most notably the loss of Harold Wheeler and his live orchestra and musicians. In what I can only assuming is a cost-cutting measure, ABC and BBC Worldwide Productions sacked their players. In a carefully choreographed statement, the powers that be released a statement, saying, “Our talented Music Director, Harold Wheeler, will not be joining us for Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars. Since season one, Harold and his band have performed brilliant music in our ballroom for our dancers and the American viewers at home. We are grateful to him and his band for their amazing work and years of collaboration. We wish him the best of luck.”
It’s previously been reported that since most music is so overly-produced, it’s impossible to create a live performance of many well known hits. Translation? Music today is awful, no one sings live, and instead of attempting to uphold artistic integrity, we’re going to fold, save money, and kick out our talented team. Goodbye Dancing With the Stars. This is the beginning of the end.
