The rumors that have been swirling lately of Sadie Robertson coming on board to show off her dance skills on season 19 of “Dancing with the Stars" is now a reality. The official announcement of which celebrities will be appearing on the show happened on Thursday on “Good Morning America.” The young star of “Duck Dynasty” was indeed revealed to be one of them that will be doing the tango, along with other dances, in a couple of weeks.

It was also revealed that Robertson will be paired up with pro dancer Mark Ballas. This seems like a good pairing as Ballas has had some experience dancing with a partner that was not too hip on revealing too much skin, but still wanted to have fun and kept it classy. Candace Cameron Bure, who is a devout Christian as is Sadie Robertson, proved last season that you can be sexy and still stick to who you are.

The 17-year-old reality star is excited about this opportunity to show what she can do on the ballroom floor. She tweeted this after the big reveal, “Let's geauxxxxxxx dancing with the stars season 19.” Along with that, she also posted an Instagram photo of her first practice session with her partner. It looked like Ballas was showing the teen some moves while she looked on intently.

Robertson was asked by the “GMA” crew how the rest of the Robertson family feels about her being on the ballroom floor. She said that they are excited for her as well and that it will be hilarious to see them in the audience rooting for her.

As for any dance experience, she says that she has none to speak of, and that goes for the rest of the “Duck Dynasty” gang. However, she did mention that Uncle may be the one person in the family that she can practice with.

How is she going to deal with being so young and being able to stick to her strong Christian values that she is known for while strutting her stuff on the show? Robertson said that she is going for cute rather than sexy. She even got some tips from Cameron Bure. The former “Full House” actress told the teen that she should just be herself and have fun.

Do you think that Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas will shine on the dance floor? Season 19 of “Dancing with the Stars” will premiere on Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
