Get ready to Dance!
The season 18 cast of Dancing with the Stars was revealed by ABC this morning, and the 12 celebrity members range from Olympians to reality icons to singers to former child stars and beyond!
According to USA Today, dance pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is poised to make his big return for a season that will include a new twist: the stars will NOT stick with the same partners throughout the duration of the show.
Another change this year will come in the form of a new host, as sports reporter Erin Andrews steps in for Brooke Burke-Charvet, who was let go from DWTS earlier this month.
Check out the full list of cast members and their (temporary) partners below and tell us who you think will take home this year’s Mirror Ball Trophy in the comments section!
