Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy on DWTS dancing to”There’s Nothing Holding Me Back” by Shawn Mendes


Interview |  ET chat with Normani and her partner Valentin, after they placed third in the ‘DWTS’ season 24 finals. - 05.23.17

Season 24 of DWTS - No One Did It Like Normani

Okay, so Normani didn’t win that Family Dollar store trophy after all. But she still gave us amazing dances every single week, entertainment, excitement, looks, body, everything, content. She was covered by ET every week, People, USA Today, TMZ, Billboard, MTV, Ellen, Nightline, ABC throughout the season. She impressed the right people. She threatened everyone else.

She was beautiful and effortless and flawless in front of the world. She shared a lot, she made social statements, she created art alongside Val.

God Bless her run on that second-rate show.  All I need for her to do now is to not fade back into the background of 5 H like a happy bumpkin. I hope this fuels her, and she finds an actual qualified and effective industry team/connection to advance her brand.

Now that you’re really standing out, Normani. Keep standing tf OUT, fave!

Besides that little lapse I had tonight (due to the show being a business trying to sell some tour tickets) I enjoyed watching her in the dwt s context. No other contestant was in their element like she was. And the season would have been completely flat without her… Man I’ll tell you what, when it comes to Normani, I really enjoy being a fan. Honestly, it feels lucky. :)


Season 24 Week 10 Finale Night 2 - Heather, Sharna, Witney, Hayley, Britt and Brittany

You know, I just made a post that ended with “Season 4 foreshadowing?” and I realized that I completely missed the opportunity to create a new tag for theories and predictions about season 4: season 4shadowing. 

We can only ever use this perfect portmanteau once, unless the show somehow gets to 24 seasons. I’m tagging this in all my season 4 posts now, up until the premiere.
