'Hi everybody, at rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars,' Grant said from rehearsals.

'Big news this week. We've had to respond to the coronavirus and for the first time in the history of Dancing With The Stars, anywhere in the world, there will be no audience. This place will be empty.

'I will be here, the dancers will still be here, the performances will be amazing, but we need you to support our celebrities by voting for them after the show. The show will go on,' he continued.
