Dancing with the Stars season 30 is the much-anticipated dancing competition that premiered last night—but it seems most fans are on the fence about tuning in again.

Dancing with the Stars 2021 has already gained much attention, especially as this landmark season features its first same-sex pairing. After the cast reveal was released on September 8th, most fans were quick to share their continued displeasure over the sudden change in hosts.

The 30-second video posted across the show's social media featured current-host, Tyra Banks in a full glam look. 

"It doesn’t take a fortune teller to know that the new cast of Dancing will blow you away,” she said while holding an animated disco ball. 

Afterwards, the full cast for the latest season was revealed.


Fans were quick to express their displeasure with some even stating they won't watch the show as long as she's on it.

"I will not watch with Tyra still on the show!!!" wrote one fan.

Another found that the show focuses more on her "gowns" than the dancers.

"Why does Tara think that she has to change her gowns so many times?" expressed another commenter. "The show's not about her it’s about the dancers..sad!"

The 47-year-old former supermodel took over hosting duties after former co-hosts, Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, were let go from the show last year. Tyra was named as their replacement and became the show’s first solo host, and was given an executive producer role.

Judging on the comments, it's clear most fans miss the prior hosts with some demanding ABC "Bring Tom & Erin back...they made a great team!!!"

What are Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews doing now?

DANCING WITH THE STARS - "2019 Season Premiere" - "Dancing with the Stars" is back and better than ever with a new, well-known and energetic cast of 12 celebrities who are ready to move out of their comfort zones and hit the ballroom floor. The competition begins with a two-hour season premiere, live, MONDAY, SEPT. 16 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

Since exiting the show, the prior hosts were quick to find new passion projects. Today, Erin is the co-host of the podcast Calm Down with Erin and Charissa, which she does alongside American television host Charissa Thompson. There, the two have "unfiltered, self-deprecating, real conversations" about pop culture.

Tom on the other hand got fans in a frenzy after posting a cryptic Instagram hinting his return to TV.

"Successful wardrobe fitting for next week’s sitcom guest spot. Everything fit despite pandemic IPA diet," he wrote followed by a photo outside of an NBC building.

Many fans may be disappointed to see their favorite hosts absent from yet another season of Dancing with the Stars, but some viewers are still looking forward to all the excitement to come.
