Zendaya Joins the Cast of 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 16

It has been announced today that Zendaya, star of Disney Channel's hit series Shake It Up, has been cast on ABC's Dancing With the Stars season 16. The show pairs a number of well known celebrities with professional ballroom dancers, who each week compete by performing one or more choreographed routines that are pertinent and follow the chosen theme for that particular weeks' prearranged theme. The dancers are then scored by a panel of judges. Viewers are given a certain amount of time to place votes for their favorite dancers, either by telephone or online. The couple with the lowest combined score provided by the judges and viewers is eliminated. This process continues until there are only two or three couples left; when they have competed for the last time one couple is declared the champion.

Dancing with the Stars returns on MONDAY, MARCH 18 at 8 PM on ABC.
