'Dancing with the Stars' Erin Andrews' sister Kendra dances too -- for the Oscars

Kendra, 27, says she is honored to be taking part in the Oscars. She tells TBO Extra, "Hundreds of dancers auditioned and I'm happy to be on stage."

ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews was just announced as a participant for the tenth season of "Dancing with the Stars" on ABC. Andrews is paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

The sisters grew up in FLorida, attending rival universities (Florida State for Kendra and the University of Florida for Erin) where they were both on their respective school's dance team.

Kendra says the dancing she is doing for the Oscars is a surprise -- "I'm not allowed to talk about it because we want viewers to be surprised - but it is amazing." We wonder if she's met Legacy from "So You Think You Can Dance?"

The 82nd annual Academy Awards ceremony airs live on ABC on Sunday, March 7 at 8 p.m. ET.
