Disney starlet Zendaya Coleman is only 16-years-old, but she’s dominating the dance floor on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. She’s the youngest competitor in the show’s 16 season history, and she may just take home the mirror ball trophy with partner Val Chmerkovskiy.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba even gushed last week “You are baby Beyonce! Beyonce better watch her back!” Judge Bruno Tonioli agreed that Zendaya has infectious moves, noting “Every kid that watches you wants to go out and dance like it.”
The major reason she’s so light on her feet is that she gets plenty of practice in her role as dancer Raquel “Rocky” Blue on The Disney Channel’s To Shake It Up!. She co-stars with Bella Thorne on the popular kids’ show that reels in 6.3 million viewers. She already has 2 million Twitter followers.
Things are heating up with Zendaya’s love life as well. She was spotted out in L.A. having dinner with 16-year-old singer-actor Trevor Jackson. Their parents were also in attendance.
Zendaya appeared in Trevor’s music video for “Like We Grown”
