E! News has exclusively confirmed that Derulo will kick off season 18 which premiers Monday, March 24 on ABC with a special two-hour long episode.
Derulo will be performing his hit song featuring 2 Chainz, “Talk Dirty.” This will be the first time a musical act will be opening for the season premier of DWTS.
Each couple will perform a cha-cha, foxtrot or contemporary routine as they begin a new season contend for America’s votes.
I hope that means we’re going to see 2 Chainz perform that night along side Derulo. I love to read what America thinks of that dynamic duo.
