The Dancing with the Stars Season 20 celebrity cast and their pro dance partners will be part of a very exciting season on ABC’s popular ballroom dance competition. The March 16 season premiere of DWTS will mark the 10 year anniversary of the show, and the much-anticipated celebrity cast reveal is set to take place on Good Morning America on Tuesday, February 24.
UPDATED: See the official 2015 DWTS cast list here.
Every season, there is speculation about who the celebrities will be and which pros they will be paired up with. (See some of the rumored cast below). ABC has already announced 10 out of 12 of the pro dancers, but fans will have to wait until Tuesday to find out if the rumors about the DWTS celebrities are true.

The folks at Good Morning America will introduce the celebrity cast paired up with their partners shortly after 8 a.m. ET on Tuesday. It is not clear if all 12 pros and the complete cast of celebrities will be introduced on Tuesday, or just the majority of the cast.
ABC often delays the big reveal on at least one of the celebrity cast members and pro dancers, making the final contestant a big mystery to fans. When Sean Lowe was cast for the show (Season 16), his name was not announced until after his season of the Bachelor ended. There are rumors that this season’s Bachelor, Chris Soules, will be part of the DWTS Season 20 cast — if so, his name may not be revealed until after he hands out his final rose on March 9.
In addition to the speculation that Bachelor Chris Soules will be doing the two-step with someone other than his bride-to-be, WetPaint states that fans may see Robert F. Kennedy (Bobby Kennedy’s son), comedian Roseanne Barr, NFL star Malcolm Butler, and R&B singer Lalah Hathaway on stage this season. Reality TV Magazine states that Disney star Ross Lynch may be one of the celeb dancers announced on Good Morning America.
The Daily Mail recently posted photos of pro dancer Val Chmerkovskiy rehearsing with Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughter, Rumer Willis, at the Millennium Dance Complex in Studio City, California — that sounds like a confirmation, unless Rumer just needed a dance lesson.
