DWTS: Juniors recruits Adam Rippon, Val Chmerkovskiy as judges
The current Mirror Ball champion will return to the ballroom to judge the inaugural season of Dancing with the Stars: Juniors.
Adam Rippon, the Olympic medalist who sashayed from the Winter Olympics to the DWTS winner's podium this spring, will be joined by pro Val Chmerkovskiy and Emmy-winning choreographer Mandy Moore (La La Land) on the judges' dais. The new show will pair celebrity youths with professional — albeit kids themselves — ballroom dancers. <iframe src="https://abcnews.go.com/video/embed?id=56911571" width="640" height="360" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" class="" resize="0" replace_attributes="1" name=""></iframe>
