Carrie Ann Inaba Excited, Nervous for Dance War

by at . Comments

Carrie Ann Inaba has high hopes for her new show. Just look at which program she recently compared it to:

"It's a little bit more like American Idol," said the Dancing with the Stars judge. "This is really about kids pursuing their dreams. That mentoring aspect is important."

Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann, which will follow the two Dancing with the Stars judges as they lead their respective teams of singers and dancers against one another for home viewer votes, premieres on Monday, January on ABC.

"I'm excited - but I'm not going to lie - it scares me," Inaba added.
