The “Dancing with the Stars” pros for season 19 were announced on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday.
Val Chmerkovskiy, Karina Smirnoff, Cheryl Burke and Tony Dovolani stopped by the morning to show to dish about the upcoming season and reveal the new cast. The show also announced three new dancers, Allison Holker, Keoikantse Motsepo, and Artem Chigvintsev.
This season’s pros are Val Chmerkovskiy, Witney Carson, Emma Slater, Tony Dovolani, Peta Murgatroyd, Karina Smirnoff, Cheryl Burke, Mark Ballas, Derek Hough and newcomers Allison Holker, Keoikantse Motsepo, and Artem Chigvintsev.
The stars will be announced on September 4, and the season 19 premiere airs on September 15. Last season, Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy took home the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy after competing against final couples Amy Purdy and Derek Hough and Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas. It was Chmerkovskiy’s very first win after 14 seasons on the show.
UPDATE: Maksim Chmerkovskiy went on the “The View” in late June to announce that he is done being a “Dancing With the Stars” dancer, although he may return to the show in another capacity. What do you think of Chmerkovskiy’s news?
