What If Kids Produced 'Dancing with the Stars'?

While anxiously awaiting the lineup for the 11th season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, I couldn't resist asking my 9-year-old daughter who she'd like to see competing on the show. To no one's surprise, she answered Justin Bieber. Her answer had me thinking... what if, like Fantasy Football, there was a kids' choice version of DWTS. Just imagine what we'd see!

The Hosts: Vanessa Hudgens & Zac Efron. The dynamic duo would be great at explaining the dances, introducing the competitors and interacting with the judges. They also know their way around a dance floor, having trained for the complicated choreography in all three High School Musical movies.

The Judges: Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber & Justin Timberlake. Cyrus is no stranger to difficult dance routines, which qualifies her to make fair decisions. Bieber is accomplished at performing detailed choreography live, and what girl wouldn't want to see him share his critiques underneath those bangs? Timberlake's moves have been compared to Michael Jackson's, and, let's face it, even the moms will enjoy watching him!

The House Band: The Jonas Brothers, plus special guests.- The Brothers Jonas are a logical choice because they both sing and play instruments, but to liven things up week-to-week, a bevy of pop singers (including the judges) like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift would perform guest vocals.

The Contestants: Disney Channel and Nickelodeon Stars. Guys and gals from each network's shows will team up and compete against each other. The Suite Life on Deck's Dylan and Cole Sprouse could pair up with Sonny With a Chance's Demi Lovato and Wizards of Waverly Place's Selena GomezTrue Jackson's Keke Palmer and iCarly's Miranda Cosgrove could be paired up with the any of the guys from Big Time Rush. By keeping the Jonas Brothers on the bandstand we'd avoid drama with the ladies, as all the brothers have dated a majority of these dancing ladies at one time or another.

The Dances: Cha Cha Slide, Soulja Boy and Cotton-Eyed Joe. Instead of boring waltzes, the youngsters could put their spin on party dance. They could even throw in the Macarena and Electric Slide.

Kids will root for their favorite teen stars and parents, well parents will have to sit back and hope that Justin Timberlake provides enough eye candy to get them through the season.
