Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy chat with Access Hollywood Live's Natalie Morales and Kit Hoover about teaming up on this season of "Dancing with the Stars." Why was Normani especially excited to be paired with Val? And, who will be their biggest competition in the ballroom?

Normani at award shows, dance rehearsals, doing interviews, in the studio, on a plane, at dance rehearsals, performing in front of 70k people and now going back and forth between their Asian Tour and DWTS. She's the hardest working 20 year old being on earth. I need to take a nap for her.
