As we’ve said before, we generally stay away from reality TV shows. Unless of course they star a current or former boy band member. In which case, we are ALL IN.
We’d been expecting Cody Simpson to join the cast of Dancing With the Stars, since he kindly asked his fans if they thought it would be a good idea back in December.
But we had no idea that one of our favorite boy band members, James Maslow of Big Time Rush, would be joining the cast this season. He was so good at keeping it secret we literally screamed when it was announced on Good Morning America this morning!!
Watch the announcement clip below.
We haven’t been invested in DWTS since the season of Lance Bass and Cody Linley, but you can bet we will be tuning in and voting for James every week. (And Cody. But mostly James). We can’t wait for his dance moves, the glittery costumes he’ll have to wear, and of course the infamous James Maslow sass. We’re hoping James will be around for a while, so apologies in advance for all of the vote spamming we’ll be doing.
Also joining the cast? Winnie Cooper and DJ Tanner!
The 18th season of Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, March 17th at 8pm on ABC.
