Legendary is back on our screens with another dose of ballroom drama, and viewers can expect several changes to the competition format.
The HBO Max show pits the houses of the ballroom scene against each other in a succession of weekly competitive dances.
These “houses” of underground ballroom culture were first created by the iconic transgender woman Crystal LaBeija in the late 1970s in New York.
The show aims to achieve “legendary” status for contestants, with a whopping $ 100,000 cash prize available to winners at the peak of the program.
Part of Legendary’s appeal to audiences is the fabulously flamboyant fashion displays, while people are thought to also tune in every week for drama away from the dance floor, amidst the celebrity panel.
And now, those famous faces among the judges got a big shake up.
Who is replacing Meghan Thee Stallion in Legendary Season 3?
American rapper Megan Thee Stallion, real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, is no longer on the panel, as she is out of Legendary season 3.
In its place comes the American actress, singer and TV personality Keke Palmer, who can already be seen making his presence felt.
His appearance on the Legendary Season 3 panel means that Palmer will rarely be away from our screen in 2022.
The actress turned roles in thrillers Alice and that of Jordan Peele Nowhile Palmer’s signature voice can also be heard on Netflix Human resourcesDisney + The proud family: stronger and prouderand Pixar’s highly anticipated Toy Story spin-off Light year.
No official explanation has been provided at the time of writing as to why Megan ended her involvement with Legendary for her third season.
The news coincides with the appearance of a video clip showing model Cara Delevingne crashing onto Megan Thee Stallion’s red carpet at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
But with the songwriter’s career getting stronger and stronger, it’s simply very likely that Megan Thee Stallion is focusing on her music for the moment.
News week turned to the legendary season 3 HBO Max platform for a comment on the panel shake.
Who are the Legendary Judges of Season 3?
Along with Palmer are Jameela Jamil, Law Roach and Leiomy Maldonado as permanent judges.
Additionally, Pose dancer and actor Dashaun Wesley is back to host the competition’s reality show.
