Dancing With the Stars Season 18 Cast: Danica McKellar, NeNe Leakes Among Contestants
DWTS is back with a new cast! The full season 18 cast of Dancing with the Stars was officially unveiled on Good Morning America on Tuesday, March 4.
Season 18 will be getting a bit of a makeover. As previously reported, Brooke Burke-Charvet being replaced by Erin Andrews, and dancing pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy returning to the show. ABC's hit dance reality competition has also secured some tough competitors for this season including several Olympians.
Professional dancer Derek Hough also revealed on GMA Tuesday that there will be a new twist. "This season, America will be given the power to vote and change celebrities and professional dance pairings," he said.
