Dancing With the Stars News: Tyra Banks Will Be Back as Host In Season 30?
Dancing With the Stars news reveals that Tyra Banks provoked a divided response when she took over Dancing With the Stars hosting duties from Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews in the just wrapped Season 29.
No comes news that she and her designer couture aren’t going anywhere. According to Gossip Cop a recent report from the National Enquirer that Banks, “is already trying to back out of hosting,” doesn’t pass the sniff test.

In case you missed it, Banks misannounced the results of the voting, putting the wrong couple in the bottom two. She said Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd and Keo Motsepe and Anne Heche were up for elimination when in fact Monica Aldama and Val Chmerkovskiy should have been named not the former duo.
Executive producer Andrew Linares came to her defense telling Entertainment Tonight that the snafu was “not” Banks’ fault. “I think Tyra dealt with it amazingly,” he said. “I just want to be really clear, this was not Tyra’s fault. It was a behind-the-scenes issue.”
Tyra Banks Endured an Embarrassing Snafu
As he tells it: “There was a technical issue as the actual votes were coming in last night. What happened was, Tyra actually had the wrong names on her card. As soon as we realized what was going on, and we got the correct voting information, we immediately rectified that on air. We spoke to Tyra, we got her to guide us through that. I think she did an amazing job rectifying what happened live on the show. It’s not an easy thing to do, what she did.”

Judge Bruno Tonioli later said that the names on Banks’ notecards were not what she heard in her earpiece. “It’s live television, things like this happen, especially with information coming in from all over the country … Tyra was brilliant … she was really good because she took control of the situation.”
