As expected, the announcement of the “Dancing with the Stars” season 23 cast is turning out to be one of the most highly-anticipated TV events for this month.
Followers of the dance-reality show have often relied on “Good Morning America” to confirm rumors on the celebrities who will be showing off their dancing skills on the ballroom.
Although this year will be no different, Aug. 30 has been designed as D-Day, as fans count out the days – or hours – when the “Dancing with the Stars” season 23 cast is finally revealed.
Although the big reveal will be made at the end of this month, the show will officially start airing this Sept. 12, 8 PM, according to Heavy.
For viewers in certain areas in the United States, they can watch ABC through Sling TV, an online streaming service that gives them access to select channels for a monthly fee. Live stream will also be available on this link.
Among the pro dancers who are anticipated to participate in the upcoming season of the show include Witney Carson, Lindsay Arnold, Sharna Burgess, Allison Holker, Gleb Savchenko, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Artem Chigvintsev, Emma Slater, Jenna Johnson and Derek Hough.
In the meantime, Us Weekly has exclusively confirmed that Vanilla Ice will be joining the latest season of “DWTS.”
The 44-year-old American rapper who popularized the worldwide hit single “Ice Ice Baby” will be joining the show’s star studded cast which also includes star Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez, Amber Rose, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Jake T. Austin, Maureen McCormick, “Little Women: L.A.” star Terra Jole, soap opera actress Emma Samms and Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte.
There are those who believe that Ice may have an advantage over the other “Dancing with the Stars” season 23 cast not only because of his dancing background, but also due to his stint as a TV reality star. It can be recalled that his own reality series “The Vanilla Ice Project” aired on the DIY network in 2010.
ABC has yet to make a formal announcement regarding Vanilla Ice’s participation in “Dancing with the Stars” season 23 cast, as the show’s reps have not commented on the said casting rumors.
