It’s about time Dancing With The Stars got its Gleek on! And that’s exactly what will happen if Glee star and former Glee Project mentor Amber Riley joins the celebrity cast for the show’s 17th season.
Snooki, Valerie Harper, Leah Remini…all kinds of interesting celebs are rumored possibilities for the next season of Dancing With The Stars. But one prospective contestant has the stage presence, dancing ability and personality necessary to go all the way: Amber Riley.
Fans of Glee were bitterly disappointed to learn that Amber Riley would not be returning next season as a regular. She’ll join the rest of the original cast for a Cory Monteith tribute episode in October, but otherwise, we won’t be seeing much of amber’s character Mercedes. But if the DWTS rumors are correct, Amber simply was making way for another exciting television venture. We know that, DWTS or not, big news is certainly on the horizon for this star. In a recent Instagram post, she told followers, “HUGE announcement next week hehehehehe! Can’t wait to share y’all.” Seeing as the official cast reveal is slated for September 4th, Amber could very well be hinting at a spot on the reality competition.
Would you like to see Amber Riley on this season’s Dancing With The Stars cast? Do you think the dance experience obtained during her time on Glee would give the singer-actor an unfair advantage over other contestants? We know you have a opinion and we’d love to hear it, so feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
