Erin Andrews gives us the scoop on transitioning from the world of sports to DWTS!

Most sports fans recognize Erin Andrews as the blonde bombshell who provides amazing sideline analysis during NFL games!

However, not too long ago she made a beautiful transition to the world of dance when she competed on DWTS with her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy! Well the producers at the show loved her SO much they decided to bring her back for hosting duties, and so far she's been PERFECT for the job!

Well Erin gave us an EXCLUSIVE interview and talked to us about her transition from the world of sports, saying:

"It's not much different to be honest with you. One of the things is it's a live event, it's a live show, and so the preparation is obviously a lot different than reading a lot of sports articles and everything like that. But because it's live and sports are live, it's in the moment. It's what's happening. How did they do on their dance? How do they adjust to any adversity during a routine? It's very much like sports reporting."

That's actually a really good point!

Of course, athletes have had a VERY big presence in the show and a few have even managed to nab the Mirror Ball Trophy! Erin gave us her wish list on which ballers she'd like to see compete:

"I'd love for them to get a couple more hockey players on. My boyfriend plays hockey and I think hockey players' personalities are so great. I'd love to have them on. I'd love to get Richard Sherman on. I'd love Russell Wilson to do it. I know those are two guys that are on the Seattle Seahawks that have said they're interesting in doing the show!"

Richard Sherman might actually be a pretty good choice! As long as he promises to not yell at Erin, of course!

The host also gave us an idea of what goes on behind the scenes at DWTS, saying:

"Maks and Derek [Hough] are always a hoot in dress rehearsal and they're always fun. I have fun with the girls. I have a ton of girl crushes on all the dancers and think they're amazing. I'm always telling Peta that I dream to have abs like her and Sharna's body is insane… just girl crushing everywhere! But it's fun; it's a good time. My sister is a dancer — they have some of the best personalities out there. They're all loose, they're all creative. They're fun people to be around!"

We definitely have more than a few crushes on this show, that's for sure!

We're so glad to hear Erin is loving her time on DWTS and we think she's doing a fabulous job! Keep it up, girl!

P.S. — This isn't all she had to say to us! Check out the first part of our interview HERE!!

    I miss Brooke! Erin is so irritating! Always starting crap and saying inappropriate things. I don't think she's perfect for the job by a long shot!

    Re: michellt
    I agree! She is irritating and boring.
    One week when she said she wanted Peta and James to have a baby I was shocked. It was such a rude thing to say. They wont even say if they are dating, so she really needs to mind her own business.

    You know I was just saying tonite as I watched DWTS has much I disliked Erin in this role and then you gave me the right word to describe her "irritating" and ANNOYING!!! Get rid of her as she doesn't know what to say and end up saying inappropriate things. She is not an addition to the show and will distract from ratings. Get rid of her.

    OMG _ I agree - so very irritating !! Can't even watch the show anymore. Why could they not find a more likeable co-host ??
