The sequined spectacular is back with a two-night season premiere going down at 8/7c tonight on ABC.
Dancing With The Stars is back with an all-new celebrity cast and fresh show format that kicks off with a live opening number featuring the entire cast and judges.
The competition continues on September 16 where one couple will be eliminated by combining the judges’ scores from Monday night’s performance with public votes.
The interactivity this year is unprecedented with ABC.com offering five live streams from key positions at the show venue, allowing fans to choose views of the Red Room, judges, sky box, a wide angle of the dance floor and a hosted feed that will highlight relevant social media conversation. Fans will also have opportunities to participate in the outcome of the show throughout the season, using social media to talk all things song choices, dance styles, and partner chemistry.
Until then, Season 19’s celebrities and their partners:
Pictured: Antonio Sabato Jr. + Cheryl Burke, Bethany Mota + Derek Hough, Alfonso Ribeiro + Witney Carson, Jonathan Bennett + Allison Holker, Tommy Chong + Peta Murgatroyd, Randy Couture + Karina Smirnoff, Betsey Johnson + Tony Dovolani, Lolo Jones + Keo Motsepe, Janel Parrish + Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Sadie Robertson + Mark Ballas, Tavis Smiley + Sharna Burgess, Lea Thompson + Artem Chigvintsev, Michael Waltrip + Emma Slater
And yes, we’re totally hoping Alfonso does “The Carlton.”
