As we're sure you heard, Ryan Lochte and his partner Cheryl Burke had a terrifying moment when a couple of men wearing anti-Lochte shirts rushed the stage before being intercepted by security.

We're gonna short-circuit!

As soon as Simone Biles confirmed she was a tad too busy to compete on Dancing with the Stars this season, our Olympic dream casting shifted squarely to Laurie Hernandez.

Well, it seems like we made a good pick… because the 16-year-old and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy are clearly the front-runners already!

The entire 26-person cast — that's 13 pros and 13 stars — made their way over to Good Morning America on Wednesday to show off what they've learned in their first week of rehearsals.

In addition to Laurie and her impressive robot moves, Amber Rose, Jake T. Austin, and, surprisingly, IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe seem most ready for the competition at this point.

Innerestingly enough, however, Ryan Lochte was one of the only people who didn't say a thing throughout either segment… we wonder why?

Talk about a winning duo!

As we previously reported, Ryan Lochte is rumored to have signed onto season 23 of Dancing With The Stars in order to fix his image following the Rio robbery fib.

Be careful what you wish for…

As we pretty much already suspected, it sounds like Ariana Grande is paving her way back to Broadway now that she's made her mark on the music industry.

That's because while promoting Hairspray Live! at the Television Critics Association press tour on Tuesday, Penny Pingleton herself flat out said participating in the NBC musical was "way much more fun" than her pop star career!

In fact, the 23-year-old singer — who got her start in Jason Robert Brown's 13 on Broadway before moving over to Nickelodeon — actually wants her role in the live TV musical to be understated, saying:
