Sources told the magazine Clinton, 69, "said no" to producers interested in having the recent Democratic presidential candidate on the show. Obama, 53, who appeared on So You Think You Can Dance? in 2015, and singer Ashlee Simpson also reportedly passed.

Clinton has kept a low profile since Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election in November. Obama, meanwhile was spotted outside a SoulCycle gym Sunday in Washington, D.C., after leaving the White House in January.

Entertainment Tonight reported last week that actor Mr. T and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles will compete on the new season. New parents Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are among the returning pros.

"I'm definitely a little bit nervous, but I'm very excited to get back," Murgatroyd recently told Good Morning America.
