Season 23 is here! ‘Dancing with the Stars’ kicks off on Sept. 12, and while some of our favorite dancers and judges are back, there’s also a ton of new faces that we can’t wait to fall in love with! Here’s everything you need to know about who’s who and what songs will be featured on night one!
For the premiere, co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will be returning (yes, she’s once again doing double duty — football on Sundays and DWTS on Mondays), as well as judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba. However, this season also features the return of dancer-turned-judge Julianne Hough!
And she’s not alone — her brother is back too. He’s one of the many dancers from past seasons who we missed so much and are finally back. So, we’ve put together the whole list of what dancer is dancing with what star and yes, what song they’re taking on for week one:
