The lineup for next season’s Dancing With the Stars has been announced and it does not disappoint.
There might be a winner in Patti LaBelle because the songstress will be joining the hit ABC show and will be dancing alongside, Artem Chigvintsev.
The singer will be competing against, Redfoo, Noah Galloway, Robert Herjavec, Nastia Liukin, Riker Lynch, Charlotte McKinney, Willow Shields, Suzanne Somers, Rumor Willis and former Dallas Cowboys player, Michael Sam.
“Very excited to be a part of @DancingABC. Football remains my unquestioned number 1 priority, however, while I continue to train and stay ready, I am ecstatic to participate in a fun, athletic competition like so many players before me have done,” Sam wrote in a series of tweets. “Filming this offseason is very flexible and allows me to be part of the veterans combine 3/22 if accepted or any other workouts. I’m looking forward to getting started with @PetaMurgatroyd and winning! Thanks for the support! #TeamSambatroyd.”
Sam will be added to the long list of NFL players who have taken the dance floor for the dancing competition show; Jacoby Jones, Emmitt Smith, Donald Driver, Chad Johnson, Lawrence Taylor, Kurt Warner, Jerry Rice, Warren Sapp and Hines Ward to name a few.
Sam, who became the first openly gay NFL player last year, will be partnering up with Peta Murgatroyd for Season 20 which starts next month.
