This Friday, September 9th, “Dancing with the Stars” season 12 is back on TF1. While the candidates were not unanimous, Internet users were particularly shocked by the presence of Bilal Hassani as the new judge. For them, he “has no credibility”.
It’s the big night for all dance fans. After a long year of absence, TF1’s flagship program is back in vogue. For this 12th season of “Dancing with the Stars”, the production has planned things out big. New jury, new personalities and new dancers will score the French Friday evenings. If Camille Combal is still at the helm of this show, “Dancing with the Stars” fans were also delighted to find Chris Marques and François Alu as jurors. However, this year they are accompanied by Bilal Hassani and principal dancer Marie-Agnès Gillot, who replace Denitsa Ikonomova and Jean-Paul Gaultier, after just one season. In addition, this 9 September, viewers have joyfully discovered the new couples of the adventure after an unbearable suspense.

“Bilal has nothing to do there”
However, even before the start of “Dancing with the Stars” season 12, internet users turned to Twitter to express their misunderstanding. While some are already disappointed with TF1’s proposed casting, which isn’t enough “folks” in their eyes, others have deplored the show’s new jury, or at least one person in particular. Last year, viewers questioned the legitimacy of fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier as a judge, and for this 12th season it’s Bilal Hassani who takes him for his rank.
Internet users are not kind to the singer, who was just a dancer in “Dancing with the Stars” season 11. Sure, he had excelled alongside Jordan Mouillerac, but he’s not a professional dancer. For Twitos, “there is nothing left to go dancing with the ‘stars'”.
“At least let’s give it a chance”
Others, however, were surprisingly surprised by Bilal Hassani’s “benevolent advice” as a judge. And as some Twitos point out, before judging him on his legitimacy, he must “give him a chance”. He could surprise all viewers in the next episodes of “Dancing with the Stars”.
Many internet users have also pointed out that Bilal Hassani is not the only candidate to become a judge the following year. Shy’m and M. Pokora also had this privilege and took up the challenge hands down, fascinating all the spectators.
