word is is that the show wanted a new younger dancer despite chelsie's big fanbase but it seems like she was bumped out in favour of another sytycd alum, lindsay arnold...though i'm surprised it wasn't whitney carson but i guess they wanted someone taller.

still, it looks like chelsie may go the way of dmitry chaplin and lacey schwimmer if we don't see her next fall..assuming the show returns.

I wasn't a fan of Lindsay and even more now if that's the case (though I'm not sure it is). Also I would much rather see Chelsie than these former troupe dancers becoming pros. Hopefully it's just a one season thing and Chelsie will be back next season. unsure.gif

QUOTE
Asked about Chmerkovskiy and the other missing pros, a rep for the show told The Hollywood Reporter: "We frequently rotate the professional dancers, so it is not unusual for them to rest a cycle. As we consider who will be matched up each season, there are a lot of factors that dictate which couples make the best pairings. We appreciate each of our dancers' dedication to the show, so this is a very difficult decision. Anna, Chelsie, Louis, and Maks continue to be a part of the Dancing With the Stars family."

I saw Dmitry recently on Bones, but what is Lacey up to these days?

wacko.gif I wasn't a fan of Chelsie and kind of indifferent to Lindsay, but Chelsie's a WAY better dancer than Lindsay. In all genres and especially in ballroom.

Guys, I absolutely love and adore Chelsie and I'm sad she's not on this season either, but I don't think Lindsay specifically is to blame for this.

Sometimes, the producers keep a pro off for a few seasons (Lacey hasn't been on for three seasons in a row now and Anna was off for quite a few seasons too), sometimes they decide that there's no celebrity that would be a good fit for them. It happens. I'm admitedly one of Chelsie's biggest fans on here, but I've come to terms with the fact that she's not on this season and I'm not gonna go around blaming Lindsay. We may see her again next season, who knows?

Also, can we give Lindsay a chance to prove herself on the show before we write her off? She might be so much better on DWTS than she was on SYTYCD. Her run on SYTYCD has nothing to do with why she got chosen - she auditioned, they liked her well enough, they decided to hire her. Versatility isn't a factor because (with the exception of the all-star season, and most pros were unfamiliar with the styles that we frequently see on SYTYCD anyway) the only time the couples stray away from a Standard or Latin ballroom dance is the freestyles. They're looking for good ballroom dancers and from the ballroom we've seen her do on SYTYCD, I'd say Lindsay's a great one.

I adore Chelsie, but I think it's ridiculous how people are bashing Lindsay for this. It's not her fault.

Seriously.

And as someone who's seen Lindsay perform ballroom live, girl is amazing. It's not her fault that she was given the lesser routines because Nigel preferred Witney.

We also need to remember that Lindsay's two ballroom performances on the show (the showcase routine and the Paso Doble) were very good and showed that she's a great ballroom dancer - exactly what DWTS is looking for.


Also, for those of you who are curious as to whether or not Chelsie will be back in future seasons, ABC made a statement about all the regular pros who are sitting this season out...

QUOTE

“We frequently rotate the professional dancers, so it is not unusual for them to rest a cycle,” according to an ABC spokeswoman. “As we consider who will be matched up each season, there are a lot of factors that dictate which couples make the best pairings. We appreciate each of our dancers dedication to the show, so this is a very difficult decision. Anna, Chelsie, Maks and Louis continue to be a part of the Dancing With the Stars family.” [x]



So no, Lindsay did not take Chelsie's spot from her. You all can quit blaming her and hating on her now.

how can you guys blame lindsay?! she's an amazing dancer!!
you know chelsie will be back in the future, DWTS likes to expand their pool of pros... what's the big deal?

You don't have to support Lindsay, but the least you could do is tolerate her. What could she have possibly done to you?

I hope she proves you haters wrong bloated.gif

Lindsay's a good dancer, but i really want Witney to be a pro on DWTS, perhaps they wanted someone taller because Witney's a little tiny (not in a bad way). oh well maybe Witney will be an all star this year, that'd be awesome!

Seriously, let's not turn this into a bash Lindsay thread okay? We've BARELY seen her dance ballroom compared to everything we've seen of Chelsie so let's not be so quick to judge!

Chelsie is my all time favorite SYTYCD dancer, and I wish she was on DWTS this season. However, I don't blame lindsay and think that Lindsay should be given a chance to prove herself, as was chelsie when she was starting out on DWTS, because people don't know how well Lindsay will do until she has the chance to show you

I'm sorry, but Lindsay as a pro over Witney wacko.gif thumbdown.gif makes no sense to me. Witney has the same spice like Chelsie had and would have been a much better choice.

Witney was filming a movie at the time of auditions for pros on DWTS so I don't think she could do it this season, hence why she is on the dance troupe

witney is an amazing performer but you need to be able to produce amazing routines and have stellar technique. and comparing witney and lindsays solos, lindsays 2 solos were far better choreographically and technically better. witneys santigold was her only good solo and it barely had any content in it. Witney is great but she no where near Lindsay's talent choreographically and technically. Witney's leg action is a little lazy and to placed. Lindsay's are smooth and like butter. I know because I am a latin ballroom dancer as well. just saying. I AM SOOO HAPPY LINDSAY IS A PRO AND SHE DID AMAZING last week. I'm excited to see her next week as well as witney on Tuesday in the troupe.
