TikTok Star Charli D’Amelio And Mom Heidi D’Amelio Join Dancing With The Stars CastPublished on August 26, 2022.
TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is joining the season 31 cast of Dancing with the Stars alongside her mother, Heidi.
The mother-daughter duo will compete for the mirror ball trophy in the upcoming season of the reality dance competition series, which is set to premiere on Disney+ in September. The D’Amelios are just two of the contestants set to appear on the upcoming DWTS season.
ABC announced in April that they would be moving the long-running series to Disney+ after over a decade on network television. “The show’s broad appeal, as well as the overwhelming popularity of its Disney-themed competition nights, make Disney+ the perfect home for Dancing With the Stars while continuing to expand our demographic reach,” Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution chairman Kareem Daniel said in a statement at the time.
“As we’re significantly expanding our unscripted slate at ABC, this is a great opportunity to introduce this show to a whole new generation of fans on Disney+,” Walt Disney Chairman of Entertainment Dana Walden added in the press release.
Both the judges and pro dancers have voiced their support of the show’s move to Disney+ and are excited for the next chapter. Pro dancer Cheryl Burke shared: “It’s an exciting new chapter for the show and for the streaming world in general. Now the west coast can vote in real-time. I’m excited for the show possibilities over at Disney+ and am daydreaming about how we’re going t pull off quick changes and set changes with no commercial breaks!”
Dancing With the Stars season 31 will premiere on Monday, September 19 on Disney+.
