The cast of Dancing with the Stars Season 18 was revealed on Good Morning America on Tuesday and the competitors are...
Danica McKellar of Wonder Years fame
Cody Simpson, a 17-year-old pop star
Billy Dee Williams, the singing and acting legend
Diana Nyad, a world champion swimmer
NeNe Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta
James Maslow of the boy band (and show) Big Time Rush
Sean Avery, the pro NHL player turned Vogue intern restauranteur
Drew Carey, the host of The Price Is Right
Candace Cameron Bure, better known as Full House's D.J. Tanner
Charlie White, fresh from his gold medal win with ice dancing partner Meryl Davis in Sochi
And...Meryl Davis, who will now compete against her former partner
And Amy Purdy, the para-snowboarder who couldn't make it for the announcement
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.
