It is almost time for Season 29 of Dancing with the Stars, and spoilers regarding which celebrities will be competing have been rapidly emerging. ABC already revealed the slate of professionals who would be hitting the dance floor this fall, and a few cast member names have made the rounds. Now, it seems that nearly the entire DWTS cast has been pieced together just a few days ahead of the network’s official announcement.
Entertainment journalist Kristyn Burtt says she’s got much of the scoop pulled together regarding this fall’s run of Dancing with the Stars. On Sunday, she broke down the latest details on her site Dance Dish with KB. By the looks of things, there are some intriguing combinations of competitors on the way.
Burtt did bring a couple of buzzworthy surprises to her Dancing with the Stars list.
Rap icon Nelly is reportedly dancing with Danielle Karagach. In addition, Cheer actress Monica Aldama is said to be partnered with Val Chmerkovskiy. Viewers apparently will also see stylist and television personality Jeannie Mai perform with Brandon Armstrong.

A whopping 15 pros have been announced for Season 29 of Dancing with the Stars, and each is supposedly getting a celebrity partner. This is a larger group than normal, so fans will most likely be interested to see how that plays out.
