Australian pop star Cody Simpson is now part of the cast of Dancing with the stars for season 18.
The new season is set to air on Monday, March 17. Back in December, Simpson had released a tweet about possibly joining a reality series on ABC. Simpson has a strong following on the social media sites with almost 6.4 million followers on Twitter and 2 million Instagram followers.
In 2011, Simpson earned himself a spot on Radio Disney with his number one hit “On My Mind” and then also landed a spot on the Billboard charts at number 12. In 2012, Simpson began his first tour headlining for Justin Bieber on his Believe Tour.
Simpson said, “It was a great experience for me. I was really motivated to make my show even better by watching what Justin and his team were doing on the Believe Tour. “I had to prove myself on his tour. My goal was to go out there every night, get people up on their feet, and turn everyone in that arena into a fan of mine.”
As previously reported by E! News, he will be joining one of his fellow friends that he toured with from the band Big Time Rush. James Maslow will be joining the cast as well for this upcoming season.
According to ABC Good Morning America, Simpson’s pro partner will be Witney Carson, who will also be on the show for the first time this season.
