Although Val Chmerkovskiy is a professional dancer on the show, he is learning a thing or two from his partner, Normani Kordei. Here is everything you need to know about the rhythmic power couple, Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy on DWTS.
Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy are a part of the Dancing with the Stars cast for season 24. Normani definitely knows how to lighten things up while practicing for her performance on the Dancing with the Stars premiere. On Wednesday (March 15), Normani took to Instagram to upload a funny and cute video of herself teaching Val Fifth Harmony’s “Work from Home” dance routine. Though Val is a professional dancer, Normani’s “Work from Home” moves were undoubtedly better than his!
Besides Dancing with the Stars, Normani is also busy rehearsing for her upcoming Fifth Harmony Tour! Normani may have a slight advantage on the show, given the fact that she is already an amazing dancer, as is clear from her music videos. So, we think that she won’t have a hard time picking up the moves and killing it on stage!
About the competition, the Fifth Harmony star said, “It’s more a competition within myself and not with other people.” She further added, “I think, at the end of the day, you have to be happy with who you are and what you present and bring to the table. I know my work ethic is out of this world, so I’m really excited for the journey and just the teamwork and camaraderie between the two of us.” Val and Normani are paired up for Dancing with the Stars season 24, so let us learn some interesting facts about them.
