Glee’s Heather Morris Discusses Her ‘Unfair Advantage’ on ‘DWTS’ Season 24 (VIDEO)


Heather Morris is set to compete on Season 24 of Dancing With the Stars, but does her resume put her at an unfair advantage?

The Glee star, who has been dancing since she was a kid, was once a backup dancer for Beyoncé and competed on So You Think You Can Dance.

We think she’s definitely got a leg up, and so does her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

"I hope so. I'm excited. No, why not? Listen, I'll take it,” he told E! News following the cast announcement on Good Morning America.

"I'll take whatever I can get. It's a hard show. It's a difficult production. It's going to be non-stop, full-on."

Heather had her second child in February 2016, so the 37-year-old ballroom professional is excited to see the actress step back into her dancing shoes.

"I'm excited for Heather to add this to her repertoire," Maks said, who also welcomed his first child with dancer Peta Murgatroyd this January.

"To say that we just have this massive advantage, I think so, but I don't think we're the only ones that could pull off beautiful, beautiful numbers," the father of one continued.

"I'm ready for us to be scrutinized a little different and judged a little different and rightfully so, we'll do our best."

The 30-year-old mama is also a bit nervous about dancing live.

"I'm nervous about the live audience…I'm just not totally used to it," she said.

Heather, you danced on stage with Queen Bey! What do you have to be nervous about?!

The Season 24 cast of DWTS also includes Nick Viall, Simone Biles, Erika Jayne, Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei, and so many other amazing stars.

Dancing With the Stars Season 24 premieres Monday, March 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
