Dancing with the Stars has announced the cast for season 20!
This season marks the second decade of the show. It’s a diverse cast, filled with big names and fresh faces. Best of all, there are a number of musicians and athletes – people who should have a good sense of rhythm.
Noah Galloway – Noah is an Iraq war veteran and a double amputee. Now he’s a personal trainer, known for being named Ultimate Men’s Health Guy 2014 by Men’s Health. He’ll be dancing with Sharna Burgess.
Robert Herjavec – Best known for as a judge on Shark Tank, Robert Herjavec is a Croatian businessman. He will be dancing with returning pro Kym Johnson.
Patti LaBelle – She’s a giant in the music world, with awards and accolades from Grammys to a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She’s 70 years old, has plenty of soul, and will be dancing with Artem Chigvintsev.
Nastia Liukin – An Olympic gymnast should find it easy to dance already, right? Paired with five-time winner Derek Hough, she’s sure to be in medal contention.
Riker Lynch – One of the members of R5. His singing and songwriting skills might not make you think of dancing, but any musician worth his salt should be able to at least keep a beat. He’ll be dancing with Allison Holker.
Charlotte McKinney – Here’s a name most people won’t know. She’s best known for a controversial Carl’s Jr. ad that aired during the Super Bowl this year, and she’ll be paired with Keo Motsepe.
RedFoo – He’s sexy and he knows it, and he isn’t afraid to sing about it. But can he dance? This half of the now-defunct music group LMFAO will be paired with pro dancer Emma Slater.
Michael Sam – The first openly gay NFL player will also be dancing this upcoming season. He’s been paired with Peta Murgatroyd, and since he’s an athlete in a game that requires precision timing, we’re hopeful about his ability to dance.
Willow Shields – Here’s one role that Jennifer Lawrence can’t volunteer as tribute for (at least, not this season). Willow Shields is an actress best known for her role as Katniss Everdeen’s little sister in the Hunger Games movies. After returning from the dystopian future that is Panem, dancing with Mark Ballas can’t be that hard, right?
Rumer Willis – She’s another fresh face, but she is the daughter of Bruce Willis. That’s got to count as being a star, right? She’s also an actress and an artist, and she’ll be paired with pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy.
Whitney Carson, a returning pro, will be dancing with another celebrity who has yet to be announced.
