Charo is not a huge fan of Heather Morris being in the 24th season of Dancing With the Stars with her.

The larger-than-life performer admitted recently that Morris being a professional dancer prior to DWTS isn't exactly fair.

"That pissed me off," Charo told E! News. "Because how can I prepare with a professional dancer? She's a professional, beautiful, trained dancer."

Even if she knows she can't compete against someone with such an extensive dance background, Charo is just hoping to have fun and "entertain" the audience.

"I'm a performer, I love the audience and a fly with the music and you give me the guitar and I'm telling you I'm on another planet," she explained. "So how can the football player, the cowboy, Mr. T, myself compete with a [professional]? So I think this is not fair, but life is not fair. So, what I have to do is move my ass. That's the only thing."

Morris' involvement with Dancing With the Stars this season has caused some controversy. The former Glee star was a professional backup dancer for Beyoncé during her "Single Ladies" era and also performed many song and dance numbers on Glee, and as such, has been perceived to have an unfair advantage.

Celebs with professional experience have traditionally done extremely well on Dancing With the Stars in the past, including Nicole Scherzinger, Zendaya, Meryl Davis, Corbin Bleu and more. They don't always win, but you can probably bet on Morris and her pro dancing partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy making it very far in the season.

Charo, Morris and the other 10 celebrities will be performing for America for the first time on Monday night's Dancing With the Stars premiere. There won't be an elimination at the end of the night, as the audience will vote on what they see and the first elimination will go down next Monday.

Dancing With the Stars season 24 premieres Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
