ABC Good Morning America: Two-Time Mirror Ball Champ Kym Johnson Predicts ‘DWTS’ Semifinals

May 18th, 2016

Tonight on “Dancing With the Stars” only three couples will get the chance to compete for the mirror ball.

With a double elimination upon us, who better to predict which dancers will stay than two-time mirror ball champ Kym Johnson.

“The pressure for the semifinals is huge,” Kym said today on “Good Morning America.” “It’s worse than the finals because you’re trying to get to the finals so everyone’s like really, really giving it their all.” Ginger Zee is currently ranked at the top and Kym said the “GMA” meteorologist could win the entire competition.

“I think she’s everything ‘Dancing With the Stars’ is all about,” Kym said. “She hasn’t had dance experience and I think…from where is now, she’s improved so much. She’s probably the most improved…she’s refined her dancing and I think we’re going to see her in the final.”

Although Wanya Morris of Boyz II Men has had some trouble with his footing, Kym predicts he still may have what it takes to come out of the slump.

“I think he started out with such a bang when he came out that first week and wants to end that say,” she said. “He wants to come out on top…he’s down at the bottom of the leaderboard, so I’m nervous for him going into the semi’s, but I know he’s such a performer he’s going to pull out a great routine tonight.”

As for who surprised her the most this season, Kym said Nyle DiMarco – the only deaf contestant in the competition – grabbed her attention from the start.

“I just didn’t expect that he would be so incredible,” Kym said. “Every week he’s been so consistent and he’s unbelievable. He may not be able to hear the music, but he can feel it. You’d never know it.”

She added: “And everyone’s so good, you can’t pick at this time.”

Don’t miss the “Dancing With the Stars” semifinals tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
