What do get when you combine Olympians, reality stars, and a member of the A-Team? The new cast of Dancing With The Stars, of course!
On Wednesday, the lineup for season 24 of the hit dancing competition was officially revealed on Good Morning America — and it's looking to be the most competitive cast yet.
Simone told People she was "nervous but also excited" to be competing for the Mirrorball Trophy, something she's wanted to do "for such a long time."
But the 18-year-old gymnast will be facing off against some stiff competition of talented performers — like Glee star Heather Morris, Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei, and Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan.
Derek Hough won't returning this season, but among the DWTS pro dancers includes two engaged couples: Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd, and Sasha Farber and Emma Slater.
See the full list of celeb-pro pairings for season 24 (below) — and catch the premiere March 20 on ABC!
This is shaping up to be a pretty awesome cast!!!
So we've got Mr. T, Simone Biles, Nancy Kerrigan, Nick Viall, Chris Kattan, and Erika Girardi all rumored to be joining the Dancing With The Stars season 24 cast — and now we're hearing Glee's Heather Morris, flamenco guitar legend Charo, and former New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings will be shaking their groove things on ABC, too!
For Heather, we're honestly surprised this hasn't happened sooner considering the 30-year-old's background as a dancer! She might be the one to beat this season!! We mean… not only was she on So You Think You Can Dance, but the blonde beauty was also a backup dancer for Beyoncé during the The Beyoncé Experience Tour and the Single Ladies promotional tour. So, Miz Morris already won life, basically.
Charo is no stranger to reality TV either, appearing on Celebrity Wife Swap, Hell's Kitchen, The Surreal Life, and more! And Rashad is currently a free agent.
The official lineup will be revealed on Good Morning America on Wednesday, March 1.
She will go on!
Glee's Lauren Potter has broken up with fiancé Timothy Spear, from whom she accepted a promise ring back in August. So sad.
The actress revealed to People on Wednesday:
The 2016 presidential election was a NIGHTMARE… so it only seems right that it's inspiring the next season of American Horror Story.
While the Glee creator stayed tight-lipped about whether or not there will be a Donald Trump character, the industry vet DID confirm that the next season "is going to be about the election we just went through." In fact, Mr. Murphy thinks AHS7 "will be interesting for a lot of people."
Not to mention, alums of the anthology series, including Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, are slated to return to AHS. The horror miniseries was renewed for two more seasons back in January AND begins filming again in June.
Nonetheless, we shouldn't be SO shocked to learn about the 51-year-old's politically driven content, especially since he plans to tackle Bill Clinton's sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky for an upcoming season of American Crime Story. Be sure to ch-ch-check out Ryan's discussion about AHS with Andy (above), and then take a peek at his tease about casting for his various different shows (below)!
What's up with our culture's obsession with women feuding?
It's no secret that Lea Michele and Naya Rivera didn't really see eye to eye during their days filming Glee — but the hit show's co-creator Ryan Murphy is here to say that several of the guys "didn't get along" either, something that was never publicized!
The showrunner also chopped up the divide between the leading ladies to being young and famous.
He told E! News while discussing his new show on FX called — you guessed it – Feud:
Someone took a red carpet risk… AND IT TOTALLY PAID OFF!
On Sunday, Lea Michele hit the Grammys red carpet in a Roberto Cavalli number. The two piece ensemble made us anxious for Spring as it was covered in a stunning floral design. Thankfully, El Lay doesn't have much of a Winter so Miz Michele probably wasn't cold at the Hollywood event.
The 30-year-old also jumped on the all pink makeup trend as she rocked a rosy hue eye color and lip. YASSSSSS!
Honestly, we think Lea totally slayed this red carpet look. Does anyone else miss seeing the Glee alum everywhere? We know we certainly do.
Way to kill it, girl!

Lea Michele gave her heart and soul into her new album Places, and that's good enough for her!
Above anything else, the 30-year-old defines herself a live performer due to her Broadway background. Although she didn't get the opportunity to perform many songs off of her debut Louder, that's going to change with her upcoming LP.
