Machado will compete against Tiger King’s Carole Baskin, rapper Nelly, Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause and NBA legend Charles Oakley among others for the coveted DTWS mirrorball trophy.

The ABC celebrity ballroom dancing competition series, based on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, will premiere on September 14 with new host Tyra Banks.

This season’s other competirors include Monica Aldama, star of Netflix’s Cheer, Disney Channel actress Skai Jackson, The Real’s Jeannie Mai, Catfish’s Nev Schulman, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir, Super Bowl champion Vernon Davis, Anne Heche, Backstreet Boys member AJ McLean, and The Bachelor’s Kaitlyn Bristowe.

In addition to hosting, Banks will also serve as an executive producer this season. She replaces Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews as the show’s host in season 29.

One of the challenges for this season is to ensure that the production adheres to COVID-19 protocols, a trickier move for a dance competition format than many other productions. Details of the health and safety protocols and other format refreshes are expected imminently.

Ally Brooke samples the Kelly Charlesclassic “You’re No Good For Me” to make a modern anthem for the independent woman, but her ex-turned-dance partner puts on the moves to win her back in a sensual routine. 

Even though she finished in third place on the ABCreality dance competition, Ally Brooke pulls off some mesmerizing, fluid choreography that captures the drama she’s singing about. 

From digging her heels right into his chest to letting him twirl her all over the floor, it feels like she’s dancing with the devil — and she let her fans know on Twitterthat it wasn’t easy.

When one fan asked about the hardest part of the choreography, she replied, “There was a sequence of moves, with the spin at the end. I kept getting extremely nauseous and dizzy after every take, I literally almost PASSED OUT. But it was worth it lol.”

Ally Brooke, who recently released her latest single “No Good,” took to Instagramto announce that she’s been “cooking up something,” taking a cake out of the oven in the video to reveal the dates to her first-ever solo tour. 

She’ll be performing at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City on March 16 and the El Rey Theaterin Los Angeles on April 7, with more dates to be announced. 

Tickets for the tour, fittingly titled My Time to Shine, will go on sale Friday, December 6 at 10:00 am.

“I CAN’T WAIT TO SHINE WITH Y’ALL NEXT YEAR!!” she wrote in the caption.

Ally Brooke Hernandez is up to no good

The 26-year-old Mexican American singer and former Fifth Harmony member has released her latest single, the disco-fied “No Good.”

Ally Brooke Hernandez,

The track bubbles along on a funky bass line and four-on-the-floor dance beat as Ally Brooke laments, “Make a promise that I’m leaving/ But my heart only wants what it wants/ In the madness what a feeling/ I’m hung up should be hanging it up.” 

Ally Brooke, a finalist on this season of Dancing With the Stars, gives off a letting it all hang loose vibe on the single, as she not-so-convincingly states, “You’re no good for me/ I don’t need nobody/ Don’t need no one/ That’s no good for me,” even as she sings about how hard it is to stay away. 

The song was written by JHart Danny MajicSermstyleand Madison Loveand it samples the 1987 Kelly Charleshouse classic “You’re No Good For Me.”

Unlike her previous singles, “Low Key,” “Lips Don’t Lie” and “Higher,” the grooving “No Good” doesn’t have a feature. 

Brooke is expected to release her solo debut album in 2020.
