The big switch is happening on the April 7th episode of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ and HollywoodLife.com spoke with Cody Simpson exclusively first to find out who he was hoping he would get as his new partner!
Cody Simpson, 17, is super happy with his current partner, Witney Carson but since the stars are switching it up on Dancing with the Stars, he’ll have to adjust! Fortunately, they’re all super talented, but of course he has a preference. So, who is he hoping the fans vote for him to start dancing with?
Cody Simpson’s ‘DWTS’ Partner — Who He’s Hoping For
“I’d like Sharna [Burgess]!” Cody told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She’s Australian, she’s really cool.”
It’s no surprise he wants to snag Sharna up — she’s currently partnered with Charlie White, who Cody told us is his biggest competition.
“He definitely has some background as a gold medalist ice dancer. Obviously, I just do my best with what I can bring,” he said, adding that “no one’s competitive” on set because “everyone’s having fun!”
Currently, he loves dancing with Witney though, since she’s young and new just like him!
“We get along and are able to get creative together,” Cody told us. “We’ve been putting together really good stuff. We’re worried about the switch up because we’re just getting into the chemistry and rhythm together. It’s going to be tough!”
Plus, it’s already been tough for Cody!
“Obviously I have some kind of head start because I know how to perform and I know how to move in general, but the ballroom stuff is a totally new ball game,” he told us. “It’s a totally new way of moving.”
Do you think Cody and Sharna should be new partners, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
Update: He got his wish — see how he danced with Sharna by reading our recap!
