Erika Jayne Officially Joins ‘Dancing With The Stars’ For Season 24!
The Season 24 lineup was unveiled on Good Morning America on Wednesday, March 1. The "How Many F***s singer was rumored to be joining the ABC dancing competition for a couple of weeks.
As Michael Strahan, Robin Roberts, and DWTS host Tom Bergeron spoke to the new cast and their partners on GMA, Erika said that she would be facing the competition "head on." "We're gonna give it all we got," she said.
Erika couldn't deny that all of those sexy dance moves we've seen her do in her music videos might give her a leg up in the competition. "It gives me a little extra sass for sure," she admitted. "I'm not shy."
Kyle Richards also sent a special message to Erika on GMA. "You're going to do amazing. I can't wait to tune in each week and watch you kill it," she gushed. "Good luck!"
The Season 24 cast includes celebs from all walks of entertainment and sports, from Olympic stars like Simone Biles and Nancy Kerrigan to Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei to the current Bachelor Nick Viall. Charo, Mr. T, and Saturday Night Live alum Chris Kattan also round out the cast with some lovable nostalgia.
Biles' Olympic teammate Laurie Hernandez took home the Mirrorball Trophy last season. We'll have to wait and see if Erika can bring it home this time around.
