The latest competitor to take on Dancing with the Stars, rapper Lil' Kim, says she's thrilled to be part of the show.

"I'm a huge fan!" she tells The Insider. "When I was in prison, me and my girls used to watch it. My girls were like, 'Kim, you need to be on that show.' In prison you have to all agree what shows you watch. If we can't agree, it doesn't get watched. Everyone watched it faithfully. It's like the #1 show in prison!"

In the meantime, the pair is busy rehearsing their dance moves for their first performance on the season opener of DWTS.
