Ally Brooke Reveals The Reason She Said Yes To 'Dancing With The Stars'

You might have your theories on why certain people joined Dancing With The Stars, but Ally Brooke is revealing her own why in a new interview.

While chatting with EW about her new song, “Higher”, the 25-year-old singer opened up about her DWTS opportunity.

“I’m such a huge fan of the show. I grew up watching it with my mom and loving the dances, loving the transformation of the contestants. Of course, falling in love with the costumes,” Ally first shared. “Oh my gosh, the whole show is such a fun positive experience, and you feel like you’re a part of these people’s lives. So this is an opportunity for me to be on one of my favorite shows, which is incredible, but also a way for me to challenge myself to learn, to grow.”

She added that being on the show ties into her own story with Fifth Harmony.

“I was made fun of a lot for my dancing and that was really horrible for me. It really broke my confidence and stole my joy, and some of that still stays with me. Even though I’ve proved people wrong in my ‘Low Key’ video, and taking the stage as a solo artist, this is a chance for me to do it on such a different level.”

Ally continued, “To prove to those people and also to myself that I can take on this challenge of baring it all on the dance floor, learning something entirely new and not being afraid of it; going for something that I love and challenging myself in a way that I never have before. That’s all really packaged into one and I hope that I could maybe even inspire someone else to do the same, go for something that they were made fun of or scared to do and say, “You know what? No, I’m going to choose to believe in myself and to do what I love.’”

You can watch Ally on the dance floor TONIGHT, @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
