It's the typical group of 'Who's that?', 'Why do I know that name?', and 'Oh my God, that person is still alive??' that the show has come to be known for.

  • Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton on 'The Fresh Prince of Bel_Air') with Witney Carson
  • Sadie Robertson (granddaughter of 'Duck Dynasty' patriarch Phil Robertson) with Mark Ballas
  • Michael Waltrip (NASCAR driver/owner/commentator) and Emma Slater
  • Lolo Jones (Olympic track and field and bobsled athlete) and Keo Motsepe
  • Jonathan Bennett (Aaron Samuels from 'Mean Girls') and Allison Holker
  • Lea Thompson (actress, 'Back to the Future', 'Caroline and the City') and Artem Chigvintsev
  • Antonio Sabato Jr. (model, actor, 'General Hospital') and Cheryl Burke
  • Randy Couture (MMA fighter) and Karina Smirnoff
  • Janel Parrish (singer-songwriter, Mona on 'Pretty Little Liars') and Val Chmerkovskiy
  • Tommy Chong (actor, stoner legend) and Peta Murgatroyd
  • Betsey Johnson (fashion designer) and Tony Dovolani
  • Bethany Mota (YouTube star) and Derek Hough
  • Tavis Smiley (talk show host and political commentator) and Sharna Burgess

Some other changes to the show? Maks is completely gone, while Julianne Hough officially returns as a fourth judge.

Let's be honest, I just want to know how long into the season I will have to wait to see this:

The new season premieres on Monday, September 15th on ABC. The first elimination will take place on the results show on Tuesday, September 16th.
