Dancing With The Stars Contestants Cody Simpson And James Maslow Look Relaxed As They Leave Final Rehearsals

He makes his dancing debut within hours on the 18th season of Dancing With the Stars, but Cody Simpson looked relaxed as he left final rehearsals on Sunday evening.

The 17-year-old Australian pop star smiled confidently as he was spotted leaving the rehearsal space in Hollywood carrying just a jacket as he walked to his car.

The star looked happy with his last minute practice, wearing a beanie, a grey t-shirt and some blue jeans. The singer obviously changed inside the studios, as other contestants and dancers were spotted wearing more appropriate tracksuits and trainers.


DWTS goes into its 18th season Monday night with a two-hour live season premiere. Simpson will be pitted against two Olympic Gold Medalists, a former hockey player and other stars such as game show host Drew Carey and reality star NeNe.

Cody will be paired with blonde bombshell Witney Carson, 20, who was also on last year’s show.


Big Time Rush actor James Maslow was also spotted leaving the rehearsal studios with his DWTS partner Peta Murgatroyd.

The pair left together, looking casual as they each carried large bags presumably with their dance clothes in.

Peta, 27, wore sunglasses and a pair of sexy leather trousers that showed off her slender legs. The Australian dancer paired them with an oversized white top with a black pattern on.


James, 23, also left the studio wearing sunglasses, but kept the rest of his outfit low-key wearing a dark grey top and jeans.

The young actor recently spoke with Parade about his and Peta’s partnership so far. He said, “She’s really cool! She’s laid back when we’re not working and she’s pretty strict and detail-oriented when we are.”

He continued: “Even when it gets frustrating at times, it’s good because we look better and I’m sure the stricter she is now, the better we’ll be in the end. She also knows when to not take it too seriously, we laugh and have a lot of fun.”
