Patti Labelle, Michael Sam Join ‘Dancing With the Stars’

Patti Labelle Michael Sam

Season 20 of Dancing With the Stars will definitely be interesting! Patti Labelle and Michael Sam will be amongst the celebs joining the upcoming season of the dance competition, as announced on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Feb. 24.

The legendary singer and the first openly gay football player will compete with other singers, athletes and actresses for the coveted Mirror Ball trophy.

While we’re not sure how well Labelle will do, if past patterns prove to be true, Sam may have a good chance at doing well in the competition. Both Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward won their DWTS season, along with Jerry Rice, Warren Sapp, and Jason Taylor both coming in second place during theirs.

Guess we’ll have to see what happens!

Dancing with the Stars begins filming on March 16.
