Brandy's entertainment background may work to her advantage. Last season Nicole Scherzinger, lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls, danced her way to a disco ball trophy despite opposition from some who felt that her performance and dancing skills put her ahead of the other contestants.
In recent years the Brandy has been branching out back into television instead of merely staying in the music box. She and her brother Ray-J star in the VH1 reality show 'A Family Business,' which was recently picked up for a second season.
The new season of 'Dancing With the Stars' premieres Monday, September 20 on ABC.
