UPDATE: 'Dancing With the Stars' Now Fires Music Director Harold Wheeler


If it weren't enough to have to tell his band to hit the road, now their leader must follow suit. Yup, Dancing With the Stars has announced that it has fired its music director, Harold Wheeler.

The joint producers, BBC Worldwide Productions and ABC TV, issued a statement:

Our talented music director, Harold Wheeler, will not be joining us for Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars. Since season one, Harold and his band have performed brilliant music in our ballroom for our dancers and the American viewers at home. We are grateful to him and his band for their amazing work and years of collaboration. We wish him the best of luck.

No more live music, no more music director. What's next?
