Dancing With the Stars season 18 may feature a huge overhaul in judges as two of them are reportedly ready to quit.

Len Goodman is allegedly preparing to say goodbye to Dancing With the Stars, according to a new report from GLOBE Magazine. The 69-year-old judge is based in England and makes trips to the U.S. every week to judge Dancing With the Stars. He also judges Strictly Come Dancing, the British version of Dancing With the Stars concurrently with fellow judge Bruno Tonioli. Goodman has been with Dancing With the Stars since season 1, along with Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Tonioli is also speculated to be leaving Dancing With the Stars if Goodman does. This would leave Inaba as the only remaining judge, with two slots to fill before season 18 begins in March.

It is unknown who they could pick for replacement judges, though former pro Julianne Hough could be a contender. Hough filled in for Goodman in season 17 and caused a bit of controversy after criticizing friend/pro dancer Mark Ballas for stealing the spotlight from his celebrity partner too much. Hough's sharp criticisms could make her a worthy replacement for Goodman.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy, another former pro, appeared as fourth judge in the season 17 semifinals. His popularity with the public and his fiery temper could also make him a good candidate to appear as a permanent judge.
