Lamar Odom is “nervous” about “Dancing with the Stars.”

The basketball player — who was married to Khloé Kardashian — admits he is a little worried about taking to the dancefloor for the series’ new season. The live two-hour season premiere airs tonight, Monday, Sept. 16, at 8 p.m. (EST) on ABC.

He said: “I’m just gonna go out there and do my best. I’m really nervous but, hopefully, God will guide me and I can do my routine. I’m an athlete, but the mannerisms are really different from a dancer to a basketball player.”

Talking about his mindset ahead of the show, he added to “Entertainment Tonight”: “Be consistent and persistent, and to have will to face my fear.”

Meanwhile, Odom previously revealed he sees his “Dancing With the Stars” signing as a “blessing” and he’s still in shock that he was chosen to join the lineup alongside the likes of Hannah Brown from ‘The Bachelorette,” The Supremes’ Mary Wilson, and President Donald Trump’s former press secretary Sean Spicer. It was announced Monday morning on “Good Morning America” that Christie Brinkley, who was supposed to appear on the show, had dropped out of the competition only three days before the season premiere after she shattered her wrist during a rehearsal. ABC announced that Brinkley will be replaced in the competition by her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook.
