Apparently, an openly gay artist named Who Is Fancy is scheduled to perform his debut single, "Boys Like You," which features Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor, on the show on November 23. Who Is Fancy wanted two male dancers to perform a routine to the song because it is about a man falling in love with another man, but ABC is supposedly not down.
