It's almost time to head back to the ballroom and many fans are wondering: Who is on Dancing With the Stars 2017?
One contestant on the upcoming Season 24 is causing a controversy — and that's Glee star Heather Morris. The actress was a backup dancer for Beyoncé and also appeared on the reality show So You Think You Can Dance, leaving fans and critics to think she has an unfair advantage amongst her competitors.
"There has been some joking and a little snark about it among the other contestants," an insider told E! News. "But it's just because there is literally no doubt she's a professional dancer. It takes the others days or even a full week to learn a routine. She gets it down in a matter of hours."

One of the show's pro dancers allegedly criticized the situation as well. "The pro complained that it isn't fair," the source revealed.

Heather's pro partner for this season, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, spoke out on the rumors and revealed they're not solely relying on their skill during the upcoming competition. "I don't think we're the only ones that could pull off beautiful, beautiful numbers," he told the news outlet. "I'm ready for us to be scrutinized a little different and judged a little different and rightfully so, we'll do our best."
And even though Heather is confident in her dancing capabilities, she has fears about competiting. "I'm nervous about the live audience... I'm just not totally used to it," she admitted.
