ABC announced the cast for the eighteenth season of the hit dance competition “Dancing With The Stars” this morning on “Good Morning America” and we are not shocked with the competitors. The show is shaking things up a bit with the announcement that Brooke Burke-Charvet has been fired and replaced with Erin Andrews and there is a twist on the show this season as well!
Professional dancer Derek Hough announced the twist this morning and it’s something that you wouldn’t have expected. He revealed, “This season, America will be given the power to vote and change celebrities and professional dance pairings. This new rule will affect all couples as they will be required to switch partners at a point in the season. Never before have dance partnerships been split up during the course of competition.”
The full list of competitors and their dance partners is below:
NeNe Leakes will be dancing with Tony Dovolani
