A report from TMZ.com says that the first “DWTS” “Idol” contestant is Kellie Pickler from Season 5 of the FOX singing competition. If the country-singing lady does indeed join the “Dancing” cast, she will be the first such contestant to cross over to ABC’s signature reality show.
Who else might be joining Kellie on the ballroom stage? Other rumored celebrities hoping for a chance at the Mirror Ball Trophy include the most recent star of “The Bachelor,” Sean Lowe, country singer Wynonna Judd and Aly Raisman, one of the young gymnasts from the 2012 gold-medal winning Olympic team. Another veteran from the “Bachelor” franchise, the most recent “Bachelorette” star, Emily Maynard, has been mentioned in connection with the upcoming season of the show as well.
There will be no official confirmation of these rumors until Tuesday (Feb. 26), when the “DWTS” Season 16 cast will be announced during “Good Morning America.”
