The New "DWTS" Cast Brings Up A Lot of Feelings

February 28, 2017

Earlier today, “Good Morning America” officially revealed the Season 24 cast of “Dancing With The Stars.” For the most part, the celebs hitting the floor this new season gave me the usual range of “DWTS” feels:

And then there are the randos, including but not limited to this guy:

And the surprises:

Here’s to Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei! Can’t wait to see her slay that choreo with Val Chmerkovskiy. (photo by Craig Sjodin for ABC)

And then there’s this:

Now officially confirmed: Heather Morris with Maks Chmerkovskiy! (photo by Craig Sjodin for ABC)

Please don’t get me wrong. I’ve love love LOVED Heather ever since she first made ditzy look dazzling as Brittany S. Pierce on “Glee.”

But, um, she’s a professional dancer (and a past DS cover girl to boot). She’s basically guaranteed to win this thing. Is it just me, or is that kind of unfair to fellow competitors? I guess you could also argue that gymnasts like Simone and girl-group members like Normani also have a leg up in terms of learning choreo and generally not looking awkward as heck.

What do y’all think? Does it really matter who takes the mirror-ball trophy, as long as everyone has fun? Check out the full list of “DWTS” newbies here, and then let us know in the comments!
