Openly gay former boy band icon Lance Bass could Tango his way into homosexual history becoming the first celebrity to dance his way up the Dancing with the Stars‘ ladder—with another man.

Although the US show Dancing with the Stars’ season seven line-up has yet to be revealed, rumours are circulating that Bass, the former ‘N Sync member who came out of the closet two summers ago, could join the cast.

But Bass wouldn’t be the first ‘N Sync member to lace up his dancing shoes and Cha Cha his way into America’s hearts.

Bass’ former boy band co-member Joey Fatone finished in second place on Dancing with the Stars’ season four.

The show pairs celebrities with dancing professionals and the word is out that Bass, if he joins the cast, would be paired with a male dance pro, reported The New York Daily News.

It would be the first time a same-sex couple danced together on that stage and Bass could be the one to cross that threshold and open the door to a male couple tearing up the dance floor together.

The show’s network ABC has yet to comment on the Bass boy on boy buzz.
