Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei has joined the cast and she has a jam-packed touring schedule to battle with. She is paired with Valentin Chmerkovskiy this season and the two are rumored to be dancing a Quickstep for their first performance. Fifth Harmony is an award-winning singing group, who ABC
reports has picked up awards at the American Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, Much Music Video Awards, Kids Choice Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Radio Disney Music Awards and the Teen Choice Awards. According to Entertainment Tonight
, not only is Chmerkovskiy teaching Kordei how to ballroom dance, she is also teaching him a thing or two. Kordei has been teaching her pro partner her routine for Fifth Harmony's song "Work From Home." TV Personality Zendaya, who was formerly a cast member on DWTS and was paired with Val Chmerkovskiy as well, told Clevver TV her thoughts on how Kordei should navigate dance rehearsals. Zendaya joked about Chmerkovskiy, saying: He’s really grumpy when he doesn’t eat, and he just keeps rehearsing. And that’s not good. So just make sure he eats and takes breaks.
When Kordei isn't performing, she puts her efforts towards many causes, including "A Place Called Home." She is also a Global Ambassador to the American Cancer Society and for The CyberSmile Foundation. (Instagram/NormaniKordei
