Genial Dancing With The Stars host Tom Bergeron has one of the great jobs in television, a fact he’s happy to share. But it’s not just what — and who — you see on the show that makes working for DWTS so special. Bergeron shares a great affinity and affection for his job beyond what’s typical in the rough-and-tumble world of Hollywood. That’s mostly due to DWTS’s achievement in creating a family atmosphere. Guests are often invited back and the environment is enormously welcoming, probably because of the courage and risk-taking of the dancing itself. It takes guts and grit on top of grace.

That’s why Bergeron’s highest compliment is to call somebody part of the DWTS family. When it comes to Week 7 Guest Judge Mandy Moore, Bergeron doesn’t just say Moore is part of the DWTS family, he says she’s a “key member of the family.” The 4-time Emmy nominee Moore knows the set of DWTS like few others, having choreographed multiple big numbers for the show over the years. Moore will bring both her expertise and her affection to the judge’s chair.
