'Dancing With The Stars': Roshon Fegan distracted in rehearsal
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- He acts, he sings and he writes songs. But 20-year-old Roshon Fegan may be way out of his comfort zone for ballroom dancing.
Roshon, who stars on the Disney Channel show "Shake It Up!," will strut his stuff on the dance floor on season 14 of "Dancing With The Stars" with professional dancer Chelsie Hightower.
When he found out he got the gig, his family could hardly wait to celebrate the good news.
"It was crazy excitement," he said. "My family was just, they were going berserk. They were really excited. My dad, he loves the show. My mom really loves the show. So, they're ready for me to do some crazy dances and learn some stuff."
He just might have a winning chance if he can stay on the right track.
"We just keep going and it's 20 minutes in class, and we're just talking about puppies and unicorns," he said. "I don't know how we got there."
He blames Hightower.
"Don't believe him, he's the talker," she said. "I'm trying to keep him on task here. I got a job to do.
To that, Fegan replied, "I got a job to do too."
The rest of the cast includes "The View" co-host Sherri Shepherd with pro dancer Val Chmerkovskiy; singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw with pro dancer Karina Smirnoff; "Melrose Place" actor Jack Wagner with pro dancer Anna Trebunskaya; actress Melissa Gilbert with pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy; actor and model William Levy with pro dancer Cheryl Burke; tennis legend Martina Navratilova with pro dancer Tony Dovolani; TV host Maria Menounos and partner pro dancer Derek Hough , TV star Jaleel White with pro dancer Kym Johnson; and opera star Katherine Jenkins with pro dancer Mark Ballas.
"Dancing With The Stars" kicks off with a two-hour season premiere on Monday, March 19, at 8 p.m. on ABC7.
