The wait is finally over for fans of Dancing with the Stars: The list of the newest celebrities to hit the ballroom has finally arrived!
Season 23 was packed with emotion and incredible performances. Ultimately, 16-year-old Olympian Laurie Hernandez went home with the mirror ball trophy!
It was certainly a well-deserved win, seeing as she and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy put in so much hard work during the season. The competition with contestants like Terra Jolé and James Hinchcliffe was incredibly fierce, but Laurie and Val sealed the deal.
With season 24 only a few short weeks away, we’re finally getting a glimpse at the new competition! Sadly, though, one pro will not be returning.
Derek Hough is taking a break from Dancing with the Stars after winning six mirror ball trophies. The news was released shortly after season 23 ended in November 2016. He will be working with Jennifer Lopez and Ne-Yo on the new competition show World of Dance as a judge.
So, let’s get ready for all of the new dancers we’ll be seeing in season 24 of Dancing with the Stars! Check out the full list of celebrities and their professional dancing partners:
