Nelly Confirmed For Dancing With The Stars

It’s going to be hot in herre as Nelly joins the rest of the cast for the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars.  The Grammy-winning hip hop artist was just added to the lineup, which includes the following celebrities:

Tiger King” star Carole Baskin “Desperate Housewives” star Jesse Metcalf,  Super Bowl champ Vernon Davis, “Bachelorette” star Kaitlyn BristoweBackstreet Boy heartthrob AJ McLean,  “Cheer” coach Monica Aldama, actress Anne Heche, Disney Channel alum Skai Jackson, “One Day at a Time” star Justina Machado, “The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai, NBA great Charles Oakley, “Catfish” host Nev Schulman, “Selling Sunset” favorite Chrishell Stause and ice skater Johnny Weir.

How did he get involved with the  competitive ABC-TV series? Sources close to Nelly confirm he had been asked for years to do “Dancing With The Stars,” but his schedule was always so full with touring and filming that it wasn’t possible. This time,  however, COVID-19 halted touring,  so he thought, “there may not be another time like this, so let’s do this!”   He was also challenged by friends that he couldn’t do it or couldn’t win it–so with all the stars aligned, he  said, “let’s go!!”
Season 29 of Dancing With the Stars is set to premiere September 14, 2020 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Make sure that you show Nelly your love by hitting him up on Instagram @Nelly.
