117803_2549_pre Samantha Harris, longtime co-host of “Dancing With the Stars,” will not be returning to the hit ABC reality series when its 10th season premieres March 22, reports

Harris, who has hosted alongside Tom Bergeron on “DWTS” for the last eight seasons, said she was leaving the show to focus on her other gigs, including her recently expanded correspondent duties on the infotainment show “The Insider.”

According to the story, “DWTS” executive producer Conrad Green said he has already begun the search to find Harris’ replacement, spurring an Internet frenzy as to who has the right stuff to take over the co-host's duties.

Some made a case for Season 2 winner Drew Lachey, who filled in for Harris while she was on maternity leave. Others suggested Paula Abdul. And there's always the lovable Miss Piggy, who famously elbowed Harris out of the spotlight at the end of last season.

Who do you think should take Harris' place?
