*Every celebrity that was leaked earlier this week for season 19 of “Dancing With the Stars” was confirmed this morning on “Good Morning America” – including last-minute addition Tavis Smiley (not present for the pic above).
This fall, “DWTS” will see the talk show host and author compete against former “Tap Dance Kid” Alfonso Ribeiro, Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones and a mix of other athletes, actors…and one fashion designer, Betsey Johnson.
The oldest competitor this year is 76-year-old Tommy Chong, one-half of comedy duo Cheech and Chong.
Expect to see several new faces on the pro side with three dancers making their debut: former “So You Think You Can Dance” competitor Allison Holker, Artem Chigvintsev and Keoikantse Motsepe.
“DWTS” alum Julianne Hough returns to serve as the fourth judge, alongside Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman. Longtime host Tom Bergeron is again joined by Erin Andrews.
“Dancing With the Stars” premieres Sept. 15 on ABC.
