The TikTok star, who is also a trained dancer, is reportedly set to join the upcoming season of the long-running dancing competition show alongside her mom, Heidi D’Amelio.
AceShowbiz -Season 31 of “Dancing with the Stars” will seemingly be a family affair for Charli D’Amelio. If a new report is to be believed, the TikTok star is set to join the upcoming season of the long-running dancing competition show alongside her mom, Heidi D’Amelio.
A source revealed to TMZ on Thursday, August 25 that Charli and Heidi have been tapped to compete in the dance competition show’s upcoming season, which kicks off next month on Disney+. The news outlet claimed that the mom-and-daughter duo will “appear as separate contestants,” competing against each other to take home the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
Boasting 49 million followers on Instagram and 145.7 million followers on TikTok, Charli’s large fanbase may be beneficial for her alleged stint on the popular show. The 18-year-old star was also trained dancer for 10 years before becoming a social media star. As for her mom, the 50-year-old influencer also often shows off her dancing skills on social media post.
Charlie previously worked with “DWTS” judge Derek Hough and his sister and fellow professional dancer Julianne Hough. The trio teamed up for a “Dirty Dancing” tribute during the “Step Into… the Movies” special that premiered in March.
Neither Charli nor Heidi has commented on the rumors.
Fans, however, will soon find out if the rumors are true. The full lineup of stars and pro dancers who will be participating in season 31 will be revealed early next month on “Good Morning America“, though the first teaser hinted at the return of Daniella Karagach, Artem Chigvintsev, Witney Carson, Brandon Armstrong, Cheryl Burke and Pasha Pashkov.
The upcoming season will mark the first season to air on Disney+ after previously airing on ABC. Tyra Banks is set to co-host the season along with season 19 winner Alfonso Ribiero. “I’m super excited. For me to be asked now to co-host with Tyra, and be part of the great crew and dancers and friends … to be able to be on stage with them and to be part of that family again, is quite special for me,” Alfonso said to PEOPLE following the announcement.
“I mean, these dancers are friends of mine at this point now. We really do all hang out together and talk outside of that show,” he continued.
Season 31 of “Dancing with the Stars” premieres on September 19 on Disney+.
