The new group of hoofers will be introduced by Dancing co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke during an episode of Bachelor Pad.

This is the first time in the show’s history that a live press conference was scheduled to unveil the participants.

The next edition of Dancing will bow Monday, Sept. 30. This season, the show will once again feature the “Macy’s Stars of Dance” segment that will showcase choreographers and performers from different styles of dance.

      iam so excited cant wait to see who the new stars will be i have been watching since season 2….love your show…….

      • meliot

        I think I must have a defective calendar cause mine says Sept 30 is a Thursday, not a Monday.

      • Magi

        No dear, Aug. 30th is a Monday. That’s when they are annoucing who will be dancing for the new season. September 20th is also a Monday and that’s when the new season is going to start.

      • sher

        You are correct Meliot; the article states the show will start on Monday, Sept. 30th, which is incorrect because, as you say, Sept 30 is a Thursday!

      • Rita Leid

        Yes, Magi, BUT, in last paragraph of the article, it states:
        “The next edition of Dancing will bow Monday, Sept. 30.”
        I believe this is what meliot is referring to! And, they are right!

    • corecto

      I hope they get Bill Beutell

    • Sandy

      Your “campaign” does not belong on this site and we could care less what you think. Put it on RealityHo.com.

    • dave

      wrong place for this



    • bethani smith

      i love your show cant wait to see season 12 i hope its as good as this years i think you should invite trey songz to sing on your show i am so excited i love dancing with the stars

  • hmm

    Usually this close to the announcement there are all sorts of rumors floating around about who might be on the cast this season. I haven’t heard ANY this time. Maybe they’ve finally run out of C-listers and reality stars…

    • Char Philli

      I’m looking for the talk of who might be on DWTS. I’m a DWTS addict. I can hardly wait.

      • Barbs

        I love the show. Can’t hardly wait to fine out who will be on the show this season.

    • Anna

      Football player Kurt Warner is rumored to be dancing.

      • William Pritchard

        That would be great to have Kurt Warner on!

    • Jethro

      So True

    • Pmcg295

      I’ve heard it’s going to be one of the Housewives of NJ, someone from Jersey shore and any number of football players although the football season is starting soon so maybe not football players



  • Rob

    I think the season starts on Monday, September 20, not the 30th.

    • Char Philli

      I think you’re right

    • Jethro

      You’re right!

      • corecto

        No you are right to be excited about dancing. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    • jonny

      Announcement is Monday AUGUST 30 not Sept 30

      • corecto

        It says Aug 30, so what are you looking at?

      • Jenny

        Correct…the announcement is August 30th. But at the bottom it says that the new season will start on SEPTEMBER 30th! (which has to be incorrect because it is a Thursday)
        She is speculating that it will premiere on SEPT. 20th…

  • Jethro

    Who the heck cares? After last season its time for the show to hang itself up.

    • Tammy22

      dah, why U say that, I thought last season was a good one

  • Clete

    How can this possibly be reguarded as an event rating a press conference?

    • can’t wait!

      For the same reason you clicked on the story to see what the hullabaloo was all about.

      • Rose

        Good One!!!

    • TorontoTom

      Is LeBron James making the announcement?!?

  • Nancy Jo

    I just hope, for the love of God, that we are not subjected to more of Ali from the Bachlorette!!

    • Sandy

      Heard Roberto and Ali are both gonna dance.

    • Vicki

      I hope for the love of God, there is no more Vienna!

  • dcmom

    Just curious, does anyone know why the previous hostess (Samantha something) was replaced by Brooke Burke?

    • Blue Silver

      Because Samantha Harris is co-anchoring “Entertainment Tonight” and will take Mary Hart’s place after Mary retires!

      • corecto

        Bo it is because Brooke Burke is HOT!

      • jean

        I miss Samantha, she and tom had a real great chemistry. I don’t care for the new one.

    • Kathy

      She took a gig with Entertainment Tonight..I guess more money!!

    • bobbie

      She resirned from the show to be on Entertainment Tonight.
      I do NOT like Brooke Burke at all.

      • bobbie

        the wrd was suppose to be resigned.

      • william

        I don’t like her either Bobbie, she loves herself

    • Beth

      She is also a sports fitness model, lots of jobs to do!

    • Sandy

      Yep – Samantha went to Entertainment Tonight because they’re getting rid of Mary Hart.

    • Carolyn


      Samantha Harris left on her own to spend time with her children and concentrate more on her corresponding and moderating duties on “The Insider”.

    • dcmom

      Thanks, everybody!

    • joan

      Samantha Harris has been doing Entertainment Tonight, 6 nights a week. So much for her children.

    • Jenny

      I was wondering the same thing!
      Brooke is okay, but she doesn’t click with Tom like Samantha did.

    • drpet

      Regarding Brooke, if thinking she is hot or sexy means she doesn’t wear much clothes, you are right. She dresses like a street walker. I would have thought the show would have had more class than that. She has really lowered the shows standards.

  • Oscar_Chip

    So far I’ve heard Sig Hansen and Kurt Warner will be on this season.

    • Dora

      Hope they are gonna allow smoking on the set if Sig is dancing….Maybe they should add Brett Favre since he may not have anything to do !

    • Judy

      I hope Sig will be dancing,he’s sooooo interesting.Love his boat.

  • Chargermama

    Brooke Burke is a beautiful woman, but I’m sorry, she is a horrible host…

    • bobbie

      I agree…not a good host at all.

      • Jingles

        I think Brooke can dance, but I don’t like her as a hostess :(

      • william

        Don’t say too much about Brooke Burke, they won’t print it!

    • Robin

      I totally agree, she was a very talented dancer, and is a beautiful woman, but her hosting skills are awful.

    • Zach

      She’s heads and tails above that phony-baloney robot Samantha Harris, who better not become the next Mary Hart (not that I’m watching).

    • Judy Ray

      I hope Brooke does a better job this time. She seemed not to know what to say a good bit of the time.

    • Lorie

      Sadly, I have to agree. I was really hoping she would do a better job than Samantha.

  • Sarah

    Kurt Warner would be a good one

  • Mary Lou

    I hope they have a different wardrobe person this season for Brooke… her outfits last time were horrible – way too short and tight! Such a disappointment compared to other seasons. It is our favorite show and needs a bit more elegance when it comes to her wardrobe!!!

    • bobbie

      ye her clothes were to tight & too short & she is more interested in how she looks then talking to the stars & pros.

      • meliot

        agreed, as much as I did not like Samantha Harris, she always looked stunning!

      • william

        You asre so right Bobbie, she is in love with herself, I wish they would get rid of her

  • jfms777

    I would rather watch this press conference than a press conference with Obama hack Robert Gibbs. At least this has some meaning.

  • Sarah

    Kurt Warner would be a good one!

  • Veronica

    I read rumors that The Situation and Teresa from NJ Housewives may be on. If this is the case, this will be the 1st season that I don’t watch.

    • Jethro

      I see Mike Situation and Teresa’s Joe fighting on episode 3. Mike would crush Joe’s head with his arms!

    • Ellen

      I couldn’t agree more!

    • Ellen

      My response was to you Veronica.

  • Cathy

    I think Drew Lechey should co host. I wish they would pick people who have NO dance experience. Last years winner was a joke. She has a ton of dance expereince.

    • Robin

      She may have had dance experience, but ballroom dancing is a whole differant thing. Altough I get your point.

      • Zach
