A 'Glee' Star on 'DWTS' Season 17? Yes, Please!

Brooke Burke Tom BergeronOMG. So you know how there have been rumors that the Dancing With the Stars season 17 cast will likely include some younger members in an effort to capture a hipper audience?

Well, DWTS host Brooke Burke-Charvet has a couple ideas in mind as to who would be a good fit -- and it's pretty safe to say she hit the nail right on the head with her suggestions.

First and foremost, she thinks Carly Rae Jepsen would be a great addition to the cast. Um, yeah she would. Who doesn't love "Call Me Maybe"? And she'd have to dance to her hit song for sure.

Besides Carly, Brooke also has a Glee star in mind for a spot on the season 17 cast roster -- because she's a fan of the show.


Are you ready for this? She thinks Chris Colfer "would be amazing." DUH! Of course he would!

He pretty much is the definition of young and hip, and if he can't appeal to a younger audience, then no one can, right?

But if Chris does wind up being part of the cast -- maybe they should change things up a bit this time around and let the contestants sing as well as dance? Almost like Glee meets DWTS -- something like that. Here's what I'm thinking: Chris could start off each performance by belting out a few lines of the song, and then proceed to take the ballroom by storm and put his dancing skills to the test.

What do you think? Totally brilliant idea, right? Ugh. If only we didn't have to wait so long to find out who makes the cut for the new cast. But I guess the speculation is fun in the meantime.

Do you think Chris would be a good fit for DWTS? What about Carly?
