In one of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ earlier seasons, back in 2007, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus (perhaps more known for being Miley Cyrus’s dad nowadays) was one of the contestants. Even though Cyrus is known for his music, here was given a chance to prove his dancing skills too.
Together with Karina Smirnoff, the duo danced pretty well and were one of the audience’s favorite couples. They made it all the way to the semi-finals, but poor Billy was ultimately voted off the show and ended up in fifth place. Boo-hoo.
Bindi Irwin – Season 21
'Dancing With the Stars' really is one of the most diverse shows when it comes to its contestants. Bindi Irwin, the famous wildlife conservationist, is living proof. Irwin decided to give wild animals a break and put on cute little outfits.
So, instead of dancing with the animals, she decided to go give humans a chance too. She partnered with Derek Hough, and, surprise, surprise, Irwin won first place!
Lisa Rinna – Season 2
Before she became one of the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' Lisa Rinna was an actress on 'Days of Our Lives' and a dancer on 'Dancing With the Stars.' In the second season of the show, she coupled with Louis Van Amstel, and the duo danced beautifully all the way until round seven.
Apparently, the love of the judges was not enough — while they loved them, the audience didn’t. So, unfortunately, she left the show.
Nelly – Season 29
A celebrity that won fans’ hearts while on 'Dancing With the Stars' was the famous hip-hop artist Nelly. Who can forget riding in their car with the windows rolled down, playing ‘Ride Wit Me’ at full volume?
The rapper teamed up with stunning and talented Daniella Karagach and, of course, dazzled everybody with his dance moves. The hot duo won third place, and we’re not at all surprised.
Kim Kardashian – Season 7
Before she starred in 20 seasons of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians,' had over 300M followers on social media, or basically became a different person after millions of dollars of plastic surgery, Kim Kardashian was hungry for screen exposure. And so, back in 2008, she joined the 7th season of 'Dancing With the Stars.'
Teamed up with Mark Ballas, Kim really proved that, unlike her little brother Rob, she really couldn’t dance. They placed 11th in the competition, and poor Kim went back to, well, being a multimillion-dollar socialite.
