“She’s young, but she has a great sense of self, strength and femininity,” he revealed in a video interview earlier in the month. “I hope she’s going to bring that strength to the competition.”
Val also added that he plans to bring that strength Normani has to every performance.
“At the same time, for me, strength is not just confidence but also embracing your flaws and vulnerability. She seems like somebody that, at least at first glance, is very comfortable with the things that she’s not…and so she can embrace all the things that she is.”
Dancing With The Stars premieres on Monday, March 20th @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
FYI: Normani is also pictured leaving rehearsals in Los Angeles on Wednesday (March 15).
