It's that time of year again when we finally get to see which celebs will be putting on their dancing shoes and joining the line-up for Dancing With the Stars.
ABC's reality dance competition, which is in its twenty-eighth season, recently changed its schedule to airing just once a year, meaning that this year's announcement is even more highly-anticipated than ever.
It's set to be a year packed with celebs spanning the big screen, stage, and even politics, and there are also a few things that are being shaken up this time around, making number twenty-eight quite a unique season.
Keep scrolling to find out who's heading to the dancefloor this year...
Dancing with the Stars is back...
Last season, Bobby Bones took the crown.
But, this year, the show is undergoing a few changes.First off, the dance competition is now only set to air once a year, instead of twice.
But there's another even bigger change this year...For the first time, the pros don’t know who they are paired with yet and fans won’t get to know who’s dancing with who until the premiere. So the whole thing will be one big surprise.
Several of the star pros will be returning this year.Before the big celeb reveal on Good Morning America, some of the pros who are confirmed to be returning showed us their moves.
Cheryl Burke and Gleb Savchenko were the first to be confirmed.
First up, we have Karamo Brown.
