Dancing With The Stars is set for its big 12th season return in just a few weeks, and the new cast is official!
During Monday night's episode of The Bachelor, DWTS hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke revealed the new cast, most of whom came as no surprise as a partial list was leaked earlier in the day.
One standout is rapper Romeo, who was supposed to have been on the show for Season 2 but had to drop out after a basketball injury left him sidelined. His father, rapper Master P, took over for him and was quick to exit the show after dismal performances.
The perennial judges panel of Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba will return; along with the pros, including Cheryl Burke, Anna Trebunskaya, Kym Johnson, Chelsie Hightower, Tony Dovolani, Karina Smirnoff, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Julianne Hough. Three-time champ Derek Hough has decided to take this season off.
The smash-hit celebrity dance-off returns on Monday, March 21st in a two-hour season premiere on ABC. Dancing With the Stars the Results Show will premiere the following Tuesday (March 29).
Last season, Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey won the Mirror Ball Trophy, defeating Bristol Palin and Kyle Massey in the finale.
