Normani Kordei & Val Chmerkovskiy Could Easily Be Out of 'DWTS' If They Miss Any Flight During Her Fifth Harmony Tour

Praying to all the Gods everywhere that all the flights for Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy go as planned!

In their new interviews, Normani and Val opened up about how they’re going to handling Val being a sort of “groupie” on the Fifth Harmony tour, and how if they miss any flight back to LA, they’ll be out of Dancing With The Stars.

“I’m going with her on this Asian tour, and we’re going to be in eight different countries. This is actually the first time in my being on the show that I’m literally going to be prepping on the other side,” Val explained.

“There are two times we actually fly on a Monday,” he added. “If we don’t make a flight or there’s a storm or delay, we miss the show.

The first four weeks of the show, they’ll be in and out of Tokyo, Osaka, Shanghai, Malaysia, and Singapore.

Now, whether this means they’ll be off of the show, is another big question everyone is having right now.

Everyone pray!

Normani Kordei Reveals Why She Said Yes To Competing on 'Dancing With The Stars'

Normani Kordei Reveals Why She Said Yes To Competing on 'Dancing With The Stars'

When JJJ heard the rumors about a Fifth Harmony member joining the new season of Dancing With The Stars, we didn’t actually believe it.

But now with Normani Kordei signed up, we couldn’t be more excited about seeing her dance every week with Val Chmerkovskiy.

So, why exactly did she join?

“I wanted to be on Dancing With The Stars, because this is a show that I’ve actually grown up watching,” she says. “Especially with my grandmother; I remember, she would have her little logbook – I have to tell this story to everybody. She would keep track of everybody’s scores and who got passed onto the next week or who got eliminated.”

She added, “It’s just been a dream of hers to see me on the show, so it means a lot to me but it also means the world to her.”

Dancing With The Stars premieres on Monday, March 20th @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC.

DWTS' Val Chmerkovskiy Loves Normani Kordei's Confidence

DWTS' Val Chmerkovskiy Loves Normani Kordei's Confidence

One of the first things that everyone notices about Normani Kordei is her confidence, and her DWTS partner Val Chmerkovskiy noticed it too.

“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).

Normani Kordei Teaches DWTS Partner Val Chmerkovskiy The 'Work From Home' Choreography - Watch the Vid!

Val Chmerkovskiy is a brilliant choreographer…but can he take the lesson that Normani Kordei is giving him?

The Fifth Harmony singer decided that since Val is teaching her some amazing steps for their Quickstep on Monday, she was going to teach him the steps to the group’s “Work From Home” performance.

You can see just how well it went in the video below!

Speaking about the competition on the show, Normani says she’s not really competing with anyone.

“It’s more a competition within myself and not with other people,” she shared. “I think, at the end of the day, you have to be happy with who you are and what you present and bring to the table. I know my work ethic is out of this world, so I’m really excited for the journey and just the teamwork and camaraderie between the two of us.”

She added, “At the end of the day, it’s not just about the trophy…although, we hope [we win]…but just the bond that we have and the growth and America feeling like they’re also part of us.”
