Guest DWTS judge Shania Twain will look at the celebrity dancers on Dancing With The Stars with a different viewpoint than the other three judges, Carrie Ann, Len and Bruno. Shania brings with her the kind of celebrity and history of artistic risk-taking that makes it easy for her to imagine what the other celebrities competing are going through — how they are opening themselves up and taking risks outside their comfort zones to grow as people and as artists. But don’t expect Shania’s compassion to make her an easy mark who dishes out high scores just for trying — you don’t get to be a household name like Shania Twain without a degree of perfectionism about your art. As the DWTS judges look to the dancers to exude confidence and flare, whatever their technical skill level, Shania has a lesson for them. One of Shania’s most poignant quotes is the reveal that she was “not born to be confident,” yet she finds herself “in this place where I’m supposed to represent confidence.”
