10 Cool Things to Know About Chelsea Kane of DWTS Season 12

We know Chelsea Kane is Disney’s new golden girl. We know she recently changed her name from Chelsea Staub. We know she’s best known for the show Jonas L.A., and she voices a character on Fish Hooks along with Dancing With the Stars Season 11 finalist Kyle Massey. But what else do we know about the DWTS Season 12 cutie? A lot, actually! Read on for 10 cool things about Mark Ballas’ new dance partner:

1. The Summer Set lead singer Brian Dales wrote the song "Chelsea" for her. Brian told Just So You Know back in September 2009, "We've been dating for seven months now. We met a little over a year ago when Josh our guitar payer first joined the band – he wasn't one of the original members. We were driving out to L.A. to play a showcase for a record label and it was Josh's first show out of state with us, and only his third show with our band ever. He was more or less terrified. He went to middle school with Chelsea and she was out in L.A., and he really wanted familiar faces at the showcase so he didn't have to play for just record executives he didn't know. She came out to the show and that's how we met. Ever since then, things have gone pretty well." Read the full interview for more about the song, including Chelsea’s reaction.

2. Her official Facebook fan page has more than 49,000 members. What looks like her personal Facebook page has her status as "in a relationship."

3. At age 8, she starred in a Travelodge commercial with High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens.

4. She has a lot of young star lookalikes. Fans have compared her to everyone from American Idol star Kellie Pickler to actresses Tiffany Thornton, Megyn Price, and Alyson Michalka

5. Her Twitter bio quote is “I plan on living forever. So far, so good.” She also links to a new website, coming soon: www.chelseakane.com.

6. She's featured in the new Action Item song, "When Everything Falls Back Down." It was just released in February. The guys in the band told BOP, “Chelsea made the song perfect! It was amazing working with her.”

7. You can watch random Chelsea videos — like this "DC Games !!!!" video featuring Selena Gomez — on her official YouTube channel, "Official Chelsea Staub."

8. She played mean girl Meredith in Bratz: The Movie and she has two songs on the soundtrack. Here she is singing "It's All About Me" and "Fabulous."

9. Chelsea has a cameo in the music video for Zeke and Luther's cover of "U Can't Touch This." Why anyone would bother remaking MC Hammer’s song is still a mystery.
