It’s official: Normani Kordei is joining season 24 of “Dancing With The Stars” as a contestant. After it was announced that one member of Fifth Harmony was going to be on the show, there was some speculation about who it would be. But Normani was the clear frontrunner and is throwing her hat into a crowded ring of stars with moves.
Normani will be up against Olympic athletes like Simone Biles and Nancy Kerrigan, as well as former “Glee” star Heather Morris, who has a dance background. Other celebs facing off against Normani include the energetic personality Charo, SNL head-bobbing alum Chris Kattan and the Rocky Balboa-bruising actor Mr. T.
The new season’s cast was announced on “Good Morning America,” where Normani and her partner, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, showed off their funny side in their first dance together. Normani then took to social media to share the news and get some love from her fans, including Zendaya.
