James, 23, starred on the Nickelodeon show Big Time Rush and he's also a member of the band with the same name. We don't know if he's definitely coming to DWTS, but he tweeted this on February 26: "Just got some exciting news...I can't tell you all what it is yet but I will be able to soon! ;)"
Soon as in this coming Tuesday, when the spring cast is revealed?
One big reason why James is on DWTS fan's radar is because he's been hanging out with DWTS pro Peta Murgatroyd. They were photographed on a dinner date on February 4, and a source close to the couple told Life & Style that they are indeed dating.
If James and Peta really are an item and they dance together, they'd be following in the footsteps of then-couple Julianne Hough and Chuck Wicks, who competed together on Season 8. But James and Peta haven't confirmed anything, including their relationship. And it’s possible he was tweeting about something not related to DWTS. We'll find out the truth this Tuesday!
What do you think? Do you hope James does dance with Peta or would you rather hear this rumor was a false alarm? DWTS Season 18 premieres Monday, March 17 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The cast will be revealed Tuesday, March 4 on Good Morning America.
