Dancing With the Stars 2013: Zendaya Will Dedicate Week 3 Dance to Her Cancer-Stricken Grandma

Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy are already Dancing With the Stars 2013 favorites, and the Season 16 pair is about to win over even more fans with their heartwarming Prom Night performance.

When On the Red Carpet caught up with Val after the results show, he revealed that they are dedicating their Week 3 dance to Zendaya’s grandma, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. The even sweeter detail? The Disney starlet’s mom asked them if they would dedicate to her, as Zendaya’s grandma is a big fan of the show and would love it.

"We're building everything around her experience when she was that that age,” Val told OTRC. “We're taking it back to that time and we're creating a dress that is a copy of the dress that she wore to prom."

Aww, that’s so sweet! Zendaya is only 16 and she hasn’t had that prom experience yet, and surprisingly, Val said it’s not a priority or a dream for her. Hey, maybe their awesome performance will change that, though he wouldn’t divulge what style of dance they’ll be doing in Week 3. We can’t wait to be surprised!
