“Duck Dynasty” star Sadie Robertson will be joining the cast of “Dancing with the Stars” for the dance competition’s 19th season on the air.
Robertson, 17, will be competing with Janel Parrish, Lolo Jones and Antonio Sabato, Jr., as well as other celebrities who have not yet been revealed to win the famous mirror ball trophy. The rest of the cast will be named on Sept. 4 on Good Morning America.
In an interview in May, Robertson’s mother Korie Robertson mentioned Sadie’s interest in performing on the show. “I think that our kids are really natural in front of the camera and they have fun with it,” she said. “Sadie I think want to maybe be on a talk show and she want to be on Dancing with the Stars.”
Robertson, a young woman known for her faith and modesty, will likely keep her Christian values central to her performance on the show. In an interview earlier this year Robertson said, “Faith is obviously my number one priority and I think you need to put God at the top of everything you do.”
Dancing with the Stars will premiere on Monday, Sept. 15.
