We were wondering about the Dancing with the Stars season 21 judges, so we decided to do a little digging. After all, they are the people who decide the fates of our favorite star dancers! Did you know that Dancing with the Stars had just three judges until Julianne Hough was added as a 4th judge in Season 19? When Len Goodman left the show after Season 20, the panel was back down to three judges. Here are the Dancing with the Stars Season 21 judges.
