In less than three weeks, the ballroom will be back in action as celebrities compete for the mirror ball trophy once again on Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars! The stars and their professional partners were announced on Good Morning America Wednesday.
Valerie Harper, whose terminal brain cancer is near remission, will be the oldest contestant to compete this season, and she’ll be partnered with pro Tristan McManus. As Star previously reported, Snooki, Christina Millian and Jack Osbourne will also all be in the running, paired with Sasha Farber, Mark Ballas and Cheryl Burke, respectively.
Also competing are Glee star Amber Riley (partner: Derek Hough), Pretty Little Liars actor Brant Daugherty (partner: Peta Murgatroyd), Bill Nye the Science Guy (partner: Tyne Stecklein), comedian Bill Engvall (partner: Emma Slater), former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson (partner: Sharna Burgess), High School Musical star Corbin Bleu (partner: Karina Smirnoff), Saved by the Bell gal Elizabeth Berkley (partner: Val Chmerkovskiy) and King of Queens actress Leah Remini (partner: Tony Dovolani).
This season will be a bit different, in that the show will only air once a week, meaning the entertainment and eliminations will all occur on the same day. The show airs on Sept. 26 at 8pm EST on ABC.
