Senior president of series development Liz Gateley said that Omarion is an "accomplished dancer, artist and actor" who knows what makes a good dance crew performance. Executive Producer Randy Jackson chimed in, "Omarion is a great friend, and I am looking forward to him joining the 'ABDC' family. Season five is going to be blazing hot."
