This season of Dancing with the Stars will also look a bit different than Season 17, which saw Glee star Amber Riley take home the top honor.

In addition to the return of pro Maks Chmerkovskiy — who has not competed for two seasons — sportscaster Erin Andrews is replacing Brooke Burke-Charvet and will share the hosting duties with Tom Bergeron. Andrews competed on Season 10 of Dancing with the Stars and landed in third place with Maks, her pro partner.

Plus, Derek Hough revealed during Good Morning America that there will be a new twist this season called “The Switch Up.” At some point in Season 18, the celebrity dancers will switch partners and the audience will have a say in who dances with whom.

15. NeNe’s thoughts on the new DWTS twist?
