Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater stopped by “GMA” on Monday to promote the “Dancing with the Stars” tour, one month after they won season 24. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, Jennings and Slater were named the winners of the “Dancing with the Stars” 2017 spring cycle last month. It was the first time Slater earner the Mirror Ball. Jennings, who was a top scorer throughout the season, continued the tradition of football players excelling in the ballroom competition.

And he loved the dancing so much, he agreed to join the pros on this summer’s nation-wide concert tour. Speaking on “Good Morning America,” he said, “I’m enjoying myself so much. I don’t want to stop dancing. I mean, I’m really, really enjoying myself. I never thought I would ever be on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ I say this all the time. Out of all the people that could’ve done it, I’m honored to do it.”

“I get to travel around now, see some of the fans that voted us on, so it’s fun,” Jennings added. Slater confirmed the athlete isn’t getting any “special treatment” in terms of how difficult the tour dances are. “Our choreographer, Mandy Moore, just put him straight in there with the boys. We have like numbers with full-on professional choreography, and he keeps up with the whole thing,” she revealed.

Agreed Jennings, “This is a full-on concert. They’re coming to see a show and that’s what we put on every single night.” He even showed his strength by lifting both Slater and Ginger Zee for a twirl. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Zee herself competed on “Dancing with the Stars” last year. She and Val Chmerkovskiy placed third in season 22.

Interestingly, Jennings’ appearance on the morning show to promote the tour came days after it was announced he’ll be missing all the July stops to focus on football. Appearing in his place will be fellow contestant Heather Morris. Check out the new “GMA” video below.
