Why Did Ginger Zee Ditch Her Janet Jackson Wig on Dancing with the Stars?
“Hello 1980s,” Zee posted on Instagram Monday from her DWTS dressing room, where she was wearing a black, curly wig.
She later posted another photo from dress rehearsal wearing the same wig.
But when the ABC meteorologist took to the dance floor later that day for the live show, she had ditched the wig in favor of her real, brown hair.
“For all of us who danced in the mirror, hairbrush in hand to Janet Jackson…it was an honor to get “Nasty”,” she captioned a photo from the live show.
Zee’s showtime look elicited comparisons to Jennifer Lopez from co-host Erin Andrews, but no formal explanation was given for why the hair change was made.
Wig or no wig, Zee still provided a hair-raising performance and scored a 24 out of possible 30 from the judges.
Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
