Many fans are surprised to see the return of dancer Kym Johnson, who took time off the show following her wedding to former ‘Dancing With The Stars’ partner Robert Herjavec. What’s more, dancer Peta Murgatroyd is also back, despite the fact that she just gave birth to her two-month old son, Shai in January.
Fans though aren’t surprised to see stars like ‘The Bachelor’s’ Nick Viall and Simone Biles in this season’s all-star line-up. Nick has made it no secret that he’s been wanting to join the cast of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ for some time now. Gold Olympic medalist Simone was tipped to join the show last season but had to pull out because of her gymnastics and tour commitments.
Some viewers are shocked to see the addition of actress Heather Morris. Even though she is best known for her role in the hit television show, ‘Glee,’ she also worked as a back-up dancer for Beyonce during her ‘The Beyonce Experience’ tour back in 2007. Many fans of the show can’t help but wonder why Heather is competing this season, considering the fact that she’s already a professional dancer.
This season’s official cast and partners are Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd, Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy, Mr. T and Kym Johnson, Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvinstev, Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess, Simone Biles and Sasha Farber, Chris Kattan and Witney Carson, Heather Morris and Maks Chmerkovskiy, David Ross and Lindsay Arnold, Charo and Keo Motsepe, Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater, Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko.
