DWTS Announces 'All-Star' Edition Cast Today, 7/27
ABC's DANCING WITH THE STARS previously announced on its official Facebook page that the cast of the upcoming All-Star Season will be announced today. The post reads, "Dance alert! The new cast of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars will be announced July 27! Are you ready for this?!"
ABC president Paul Lee confirmed the news of an All-Star edition last spring during a press call commenting, “We’re bringing fan favorites from the past 14 seasons.” On Season 14 of the show, football star Donald Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd took home the coveted mirror ball trophy, defeating fellow contestants Katherine Jenkins and partner Mark Ballas, William Levy and partner Cheryl Burke and Maria Menounos and partner Derek Hough.
Hosted by Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" Season Seven Champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba. Viewers may cast their votes for their favorite teams via phone on Monday night during and up to 60 minutes after the "Dancing with the Stars" performance shows. AT&T customers may also vote by texting the word "VOTE" and entering the number that corresponds to the team they want to support (message and data rates may apply).
