‘Dancing with the Stars’ Season 24 cast revealed

Our favorite ballroom-based hit reality series is back!

On Wednesday morning, this season’s pairs of celebrity contestants and professional dancers were announced on Good Morning America. Some of the famous faces include a retired Cubs catcher, beloved Olympian and real housewife.

Here is the full list of pairings:

Simone Biles and Sasha Farber
Bonner Bolton
and Sharna Burgess
Charo
and Keo Motsepe
Erika Jayne and Artem Chigvintsev
Rashad Jennings
and Emma Slater
Chris Kattan
and Witney Carson
Nancy Kerrigan
and Artem Chigvintsev
Normani Kordei
and Val Chmerkovskiy
Heather Morris
and Maksim Chemkovskiy
Mr. T and Kym Herjavec (formerly Johnson)
David Ross
and Lindsay Arnold
Nick Viall
and Peta Murgatroyd

Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei is currently on an Asian tour with her fellow bandmates who are getting used to their transition as a quartet. “We’re going to make it work,” she said of the DWTS experience with new partner and returning champion Val. Rehearsals in Tokyo, dances in Los Angeles.

Heather Morris, who is best known for her role in Glee, has a history when it comes to dancing. The actress was once a back-up dancer for Beyoncé; however, knows she is in for something entirely new. “It’s different, very different, ballroom is. I’m a little iffy.”

Retired professional wrestler and former A-Team star Mr. T took to Twitter to express his excitement for this new journey in his career.

“This is a challenge,” said Nancy Kerrigan, who won Olympic bronze in 1992 and silver two years later. “We step on the ice as skaters and glide. The steps don’t have to be super fast. A dancer would take 10 steps to go the distance we might do in one and make it look like gliding. “It all seems so easy (watching) from my couch.”

Dancing with the Stars returns Monday, March 20 at 8/7c on ABC.
