Season 19 of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” will be hot, hot, hot! This season’s cast was announced today, and in addition to the many well-known celebs putting their hat in the ring for the popular mirror ball award are two former soap stars who will be hitting the dance floor, as well!
Some other changes taking place on the new season include the loss of dancer Maks Chmerkovskiy, the return of Julianne Hough as the fourth judge (joining Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli) and more viewer interactivity so America has a better chance of influencing the show.
