Charli D’Amelio and her mom Heidi D’Amelio are joining the cast of Dancing with the Stars for the competition show’s upcoming 31st season..
The news was announced on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday.
This season will be the competition show’s first season on Disney+ after 30 seasons on ABC, becoming the streaming platform’s first live series.
Charli D’Amelio said when her family got the casting call she “thought they were joking
“I didn’t think they were being real, I thought it was a prank,” she said. “But when they were like, ‘ No this is real,’ I was so excited for the both of us. Especially to do this together!”
Charli and Heidi will be the first mother-daughter pair ever to compete in the history of DWTS.
Charli also said she also planned to show her followers some new dance moves.
‘When it comes to the actual choreography, I would love to maybe do a little nod to why I am even here and what got me here, but I think I’m really going to work on the technical parts of ballroom dance,’ Charli said.
Dancing With the Stars Season 31 kicks off on Monday, September 19 on Disney+ — the first reality competition series to air live on a streaming platform and is hosted by Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro and judged by Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman, and Derek Hough.
