star Heather Morris has been cast on Dancing With the Stars
and her involvement on the show has been met with mixed reviews as she has an extensive background in dance. Morris has been a backup dancer for Beyonce and has competed on the reality competition show So You Think You Can Dance
. Some of the pros who work on DWTS
have competed on SYTYCD
in the past, like present cast member Witney Carson, who is paired with comedian Chris Kattan this season. Many have spoken out online, saying that Morris has an unfair advantage. Morris has actually said that she was first asked to be on the show in August of 2015, but she was two months pregnant, so she rejected the offer. Morris told People
that a month ago: I got a call from my reps saying, “Dancing With the Stars is circling back and wants to know if you’re interested in doing the show this season.” Of course, I immediately said yes; I’m so excited to get the chance to dance again, it’s gonna feel so great.
