The spring 2014 season of Dancing With the Stars starts in less than a month, and the Season 18 cast will be revealed next Tuesday, March 4. But we still haven't heard too much about who might be showing up — and the one guy who sounded like a sure thing is now sounding less sure.
The Powers That Be have done a good job of keeping this cast quiet, but Cody Simpson, an Australian pop star, broke his own potential casting news back in December. He tweeted to his 6 million followers that he had been offered a spot on DWTS in March. His fans said he should do it, since he'd be in L.A. recording his new album anyway, and it sounded like he was in.
A week after his 17th birthday in January, Cody was in Montreal for a show and he told MusiquePlus, "I'm probably going to be on Dancing With the Stars this season." All signs pointed to sequin duty for Mr. Simpson.
But now it's February and Cody told Just Jared Junior, “We haven’t confirmed anything. We’re still talking about it, and I’m still trying to get opinions and figure out if I should do it. But it’s a cool opportunity, so we’ll see where it goes.” Now he sounds more like Derek Hough, unsure of what the next step should be. Cody said he dances on stage all the time, so he has that experience, but nothing with ballroom. However, he added, "hopefully I would get some practice in and it would be good for me.”
He seems to want to do it, and maybe ABC just told him not to be so open with the news.
Are you excited to potentially see Cody in action? If he dances, who should be his pro partner? DWTS Season 18 premieres Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
