Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is looking to take home a new prize this spring — a Mirror Ball trophy! The 2016 Super Bowl champion proved he’s ready for the ballroom when the “Dancing With the Stars” contestant posted a sneak peek at his Season 22 premiere routine on Instagram.
In the short video, Miller can be seeing strutting around rehearsal practice with Witney Carson, who will be partnered with the football star in the upcoming ABC series.
So, which tune will Team Blonde Miller shake it out to? Well, “DWTS” fans, get ready for a toe-tapping beat because Miller will be leading Carson around the ballroom to Flo Rida’s “My House.” Could this be his way of telling his competitors that the ballroom is his territory?
According to Carson, her partner is extremely confident about competing on the series, which will premiere Monday, March 21.
“He’s very confident that he puts in the time, if he dedicates himself to the craft, he’ll be successful,” she told People magazine.
Miller, who is one of three football players taking part in “DWTS,” does have a leg up on the competition. Carson told Wetpaint that the 26-year-old Texas native is no stranger when it comes to performing in front of a crowd.
“What I like about Von is he’s able to perform. I can already tell because he has to do that every football game — he has to perform, he has to turn it on,” she said. “That’s half the battle of ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ You’re in front of a live audience, you’re in front of millions of people, and so it can be nerve-wracking. You can’t teach performing to anyone. It’s just a natural talent that people have, and I think Von has that.”
