Country singer Lauren Alaina is among the list of celebrities who will soon shimmy their way across primetime TV on the new season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
The lineup for Season 28, which was revealed Wednesday (August 21) on Good Morning America, also includes a wide variety of other notable names. Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek will try his hand at a tango, while former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will be making official statements of hip-shaking style.
Supermodel Christie Brinkley is also on the list, along with NFL Hall of Famer Ray Lewis, two-time NBA champ Lamar Odom, Hannah Brown from the latest season of The Bachelorette and Kate Flannery, who played Meredith on The Office. The new batch of competitors is rounded out by Karamo Brown (co-host of Queer Eye), Ally Brooke (former member of Fifth Harmony), Kel Mitchell (comedian/actor from Kenan & Kel) and Mary Wilson (member of The Supremes).
As always, those “dancers” will be paired with real professionals who this season include Brandon Armstrong, Lindsay Arnold, Alan Bersten, Cheryl Burke, Witney Carson, Val Chmerkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Jenna Johnson, Daniella Karagach, Keo Motsepe, Peta Murgatroyd, Pasha Pashkov, Gleb Savchenko and Emma Slater. The actual pairings will be announced on the first night of competition, which airs Monday, September 16 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Country radio and TV personality Bobby Bones won the show’s previous season.
