Dancing With The Stars will make its return to television on March 18, 2013. We are all getting excited for the new competitors to be revealed on “Good Morning America” this morning. Just shortly, the “GMA” cast will cut to “DWTS” host Tom Bergeron and company in Los Angeles where they will make the official casting announcement for season 16 of the show.
Are you excited? There have been plenty of rumors as to who would be starring on the show this upcoming season. We have also heard that professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy would not be returning to the ballroom floor. Despite that, his brother Val Chmerkovskiy will be on the show, so all of the ladies can get their Chmerkovskiy fix.
According to reports, Derek Hough, Cheryl Burke, Tony Dovolani, Karina Smirnoff, Peta Murgatroyd, Mark Ballas and Tristan MacManus will all be returning to compete as professional dancers this season. In addition, Kym Johnson, Chelsie Hightower, Louis Van Amstel and Anna Trebunskaya will not be returning to the competition.
Either way, between now and 9AM EST, the official casting list for the sixteenth season of the show will be made. In the meantime, tell us who you want to appear on the show!
