“Dancing With the Stars” fans, wait no more. The season 20 star-studded celebrity cast was revealed today on “Good Morning America” and the competition is shaping up to be one of the fiercest yet.
Television icon Suzanne Somers, music great Patti LaBelle, football star Michael Sam and Olympian Nastia Liukin are among the stars getting ready to rhumba and samba on the dance floor.
Nastia Liukin, an Olympic champion gymnast, is paired up with none other than beloved pro dancer Derek Hough, who is back this season in a shocking surprise. Hough, a five-time mirror ball champ and Emmy-winning choreographer, previously announced his “DWTS” departure to perform in the Radio City Spring Spectacular.
“This all happened literally two days ago,” Hough said live on “GMA” from New York where he will practice with Liukin. “I had a little heartbreak not being able to a part of the 10th anniversary, the 20th season. It’s such a huge milestone for ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ It’s my family, so I wanted to be a part of it. … I’m so glad we made it happen. Let’s make it the best season ever.”
