ABC recently revealed the cast for the 18th season of their hit competition reality show “Dancing With The Stars.” While most of the cast are Olympians and former child stars, this season finds legendary actor Billy Dee Williams and Bravo reality star NeNe Leakes joining the cast as well.
The cast of the show was revealed on yesterday’s “Good Morning America.” After the cast was announced, a surprise twist was introduced. At one point during the season, each contestant will have to switch dance partners. You can see how that pays out when the show premieres on Monday March 17th.
