Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins performed in the Dancing With the Stars ballroom last spring for Season 12’s Classical Week, but she’s still one of the lesser-known celebs of Season 14.

DWTS head judge Len Goodman, who also judges the U.K. version of the show, Strictly Come Dancing, told the UK Press Association that he’s met gorgeous Katherine a couple of times; “she’s a really charming, nice girl, so I’m hoping that the Americans will warm to her.”

However, that doesn’t mean he’s planning to favor his fellow Brit. "I would like to see her do well, but the people are not stupid, and it would be so easy to sound like a fool if you had a bias towards anybody. I'll just say it how I see it."

Every season the judges get accused of playing favorites so we’ll have to see tonight which couples already seem to catch the judges’ eyes. Sometimes those couples go all the way and sometimes they start strong and sputter out before the finale.

Dancing With the Stars Season 14 premieres Monday, March 19 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
