The 19th season of "Dancing with the Stars" (DWTS) will air on Sept. 15, and rumours of possible contestants have already started making the rounds.
The official cast list will not be revealed until Sept. 4, but speculations are rife that country singer Jessie James Decker, American Ninja Warrior star Kacy Catanzaro, and Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman are slated to appear on the show.
Reportedly, Dorfman will appear on the show along with her fiancé Josh Murray. "She's been asked and is also preparing to do the next season of the show," a source told HollywoodLife. "And there has been talk that she is going to do it with her man. They will compete against each other along with the other stars," the source revealed.
Fans would also love to see singer Selena Gomez, wrestler John Cena, and the Olsen twins on the dancing reality show.
As for the professionals, fans will see most of the previous dancers returning for season 19. The returning dancers include Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani, Val Chmerkovskiy, Cheryl Burke, Witney Carson, Mark Ballas, Derek Hough, Emma Slater and Peta Murgatroyd, besides three new faces.
Keoikantse "Keo" Motsepe, who made his television debut on "Strictly Come Dancing" in South Africa; Artem Chigvintsev, who appeared in the UK version of "DWTS"; and Emmy Award-nominated dancer and choreographer Allison Holker will be the latest addition to the professional dancers groups.
Julianne Hough will be the permanent fourth judge on "Dancing With the Stars" season 19, and a number of fans are crying foul as her brother Derek Hough will be one of the professional dancers.
But Hough is excited to return to the show, where she has been both a contestant and a judge.
"I'm so excited to be back with my "Dancing With The Stars" family again on a regular basis," Julianne Hough said of her return as a judge, according to Hollywood Take. "I've always aspired to be an all-around entertainer, whether I'm acting, dancing or singing, and I'm thrilled for this opportunity that will allow me to continue all of those pursuits."
"Derek and I just finished our Move Live on Tour, which reminded me how much I miss the interaction with the dance fans that have been so supportive of me in my career. I am warming up the paddles and the sass, and I'm ready to have fun in this new role," she said.
