Goodman decided not to serve as a judge this season due to a scheduling conflict with the British TV series Strictly Come Dancing, where Goodman also serves as a judge.

It's unclear if the judge's panel will undergo any additional changes in the upcoming season, or if Goodman will simply join current judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli.
