Prior to the night, Zendaya also teased the surprise over Twitter as she encouraged fans to tune in for a possible announcement:
Zendaya Says Kesha Is Bringing 'So Much Empowerment to Women'
The rising singer and former Disney actress brought fans to tears when she and partner Val Chmerkovskiy lost the DWTS season 16 winning title to Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough in 2013. But she still made her mark in second place and as the youngest contestant (16-years-old at the time) to compete on the show.
Fans are holding their breath for a Zendaya ballroom performance, but so far she will just be sitting on the judge's panel.
