Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama turned down offers from “Dancing With the Stars,” which begins its 24th season on March 20th.

The former Democratic presidential candidate and former first lady have said no to the reality competition show that airs on ABC, according to The Washington Post.

Although Clinton became a hot topic after she “dabbed” on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” she won’t be bringing those dance moves to “Dancing With the Stars,” which pairs celebrities with professional dancers for a competition that’s watched by millions across the world.

As for Obama, she’s been known to breakout into a series of dance moves on the whim.

In fact, many remember her dance-off with late night TV host Jimmy Fallon in “The Evolution of Mom Dancing,” and she also turned heads when she recorded a “Turnip for What” video, the Post noted.

DWTS usually serves as a way to make a celebrity figure relevant again, putting them in the spotlight on one of the biggest stages reality TV has to offer, according to the Mic.

However, that’s something that neither Clinton nor Obama need at this point in their respective careers.

Despite Clinton losing to President Donald Trump in this year’s presidential election, her political career is far from over as she plans to continue to fight for a “female future” in politics, and she’s also working on a book, at the moment.

Obama is focused on writing a book as well, while she’s also busy running her foundation and working with her husband to continue fighting for the very things they tried to implement in this country during their eight years in the White House, the Mic noted.

DWTS won’t lose much sleep over the “no’s” though, as producers for the show are quickly filling the roster, according to US magazine.

One of the big names they’re looking to add to the show is reality star Nick Viall, a former track star.

According to producers, “it’s looking likely he’ll be on.”

Producers are also apparently working on closing the deal “with a couple of movie stars who are showing interest,” says a source close to the show, according to US magazine. “They’re just trying to put together a good cast.”
