Len Goodman also announced the news on Monday’s episode of DWTS to enthusiastic applause. When it comes to live shows, you need to be in your prime and be able to respond quickly. And things get really tough as you get older,” he tells People. I thought it would be best to leave before falling asleep or pouring into the show! I will miss the California sunshine, working with fellow judges, and the camaraderie of everyone on the show, he added. It was very rewarding to see famous people become artists and possibly some of the best shows on television.

During the first season of Dancing with the Stars in 2005, Len Goodman appeared as the head judge for the dancing show. The jury also joined Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, who continued to serve for 31 seasons.
Len Goodman was serving as the lead jury for Strictly Come Dancing, the British version of DWTS, at the show premiere. The show was going well at that point, so Goodman thought DWTS would be a hit too, but he didn’t get everyone involved. “In general, I thought that whatever was popular on television in the UK at the time would be popular in the UK and it would be a hit because Strictly Come Dancing was especially big at that point,” he says. Most Americans believed that ballroom dancing would be a failure and that no one would enjoy it. How wrong they are! Recently, DWTS cycled on ABC for 30 seasons and then cycled on Disney+ for season 31. Before taking a break for season 21, Len Goodman served as a judge for his first 20 seasons. Then, during the 22-28 season, he returned to the judges before taking a break for season 29. At that point he returned for season 30 until his retirement.
