DWTS Season 19

‘Dancing With the Stars’ Cast Confirmed On ‘GMA’: Who Are The ‘DWTS’ Celebrity Dancers?

The Dancing With the Stars cast rumors came to an end now that Good Morning America has announced the lineup of celebrity dancers for Season 19. Fans of the ABC show have been waiting for weeks to find out not only who the new dancers are, but which pro dancers they would be paired up with.

As previously reported on The Inquisitr, a Dancing With the Stars cast list was leaked online earlier this week, but it wasn’t confirmed by ABC until the second hour of GMA on Thursday morning. Leading up to the big reveal, ABC teased fans on Twitter with hints about the new dancers.

Shortly after 8:15 a.m., DWTS host Tom Bergeron announced the 2014 lineup alongside GMA host Robin Roberts. The crowd went wild when the celebs came out on stage with their pro partners, including Alfonso Ribiero, Janel Parrish, Michael Waltrip and nine other stars.

Can’t wait to find out who will be dancing this season? Here is ABC’s official list of the 2014 Dancing With the Stars celebrity dancers and their partners.

  • Professional race car driver Michael Waltrip with Emma Slater
  • Talk show host Tavis Smiley and Sharna Burgess
  • Actor Jonathan Bennett with Allison Holker
  • MMA Champion Randy Couture with Karina Smirnoff
  • Pretty Little Liars’ Janel Parrish with Val Chmerkoskiy
  • Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson with Mark Ballas
  • Cheech and Chong’s Tommy Chong with Peta Murgatroyd
  • Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. with Cheryl Burke
  • YouTube star Bethany Mota with Derek Hough
  • Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribiero with Witney Carson
  • Designer Betsey Johnson with Tony Dovolani
  • Olympian Lolo Jones and Keo Motsepe
  • Actress Lea Thompson with Artem Chigvintsev

This season, the online rumors were almost completely true prior to the cast reveal. The leaked list contained everyone except talk show host Tavis Smiley, who was introduced via a live streaming video because he wasn’t able to make it to the live show on Good Morning America.

Season 19 offers up a bit of change when it comes to the judges’ podium. There will be four judges critiquing the dancers with the addition of former DWTS pro dancer, Julianne Hough. Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman will join her, but expect Len’s chair to be empty for a few weeks while he continues to tape “Strictly Come Dancing” in the U.K.

Tune in September 15 at 8 p.m. for the Season 19 premiere of Dancing With the Stars.
