The beloved if grumpy judge took Season 21 off because he is also a judge on the UK's Strictly Come Dancing, and he was tired of the commute. However, Strictly is only in the fall, and on tonight's finale he confirmed he's back in the spring.

"Greetings, everyone. Len Goodman here," the judge said in this adorable message. "Now I’ve been watching the show from the U.K., and I must say everyone has been doing a fantastic job. Now you finalists, I want you to give it your all in these last dances. As for the pros, I’ve got a mention for you as well. Listen up! Len is coming back next season. And I don’t want any of your nonsense."
