Amber Riley Admits She Can ‘Get Down’ on Upcoming ‘DWTS’


Glee‘s Amber Riley is set to join the 17th season of Dancing with the Stars alongside veteran pro Derek Hough.

With the rest of the line up consisting of everyone from Bill Nye the Science Guy and Snooki to even Jack Osbourne, it’s anyone’s game this season.

And we know Amber can sing from belting it out as Mercedes Jones on FOX’s hit show Glee, but can the 27-year-old dance?

Amber tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest:  “Yes I can. I kind of get down just a little bit but Derek Hough says, ‘I can teach you technique but it’s all about the attitude and bringing a perfromance to it.'”

And with that attitude, we’re sure her and Derek will make it till the end!

Dancing with the Stars kicks off Monday, September 16 on ABC.
