Dancing With The Stars 2017 Season 24 Contestants Revealed on GMA

The celebrity contestants for Dancing With The Stars were named on Wednesday morning.

The list was revealed on Good Morning America, but offered few surprises.

The Bachelor star Nick Viall was confirmed for the show (he will work with new mom Peta Murgatroyd) as well as former Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan (who will dance with Artem Chigvintsev) and Charo (her partner is Keo Motsepe).

Reality star Erika Jayne, 45, of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills will be with Gleb Savchenko.

Also in the lineup are Bonner Bolton, paired with Sharna Burgess and Chris Kattan with Witney Carson.

David Ross with dance with Lindsay Arnold.

Heather Morris from Glee will waltz with longtime DWTS vet Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Mr. T has been paired with Kym Herjavec.

Normani Kordei is with Valentin Chmerkovskiy while Rashad Jennings has been partnered with Emma Slater.

And Simone Biles will tango with Sasha Farber.

The new season debuts on March 20.

Nick wore a purple shirt with black tie and slacks as he appeared in his official DWTS shots.

Peta, who welcomed her first child this year, was slender in her little dress. The star also showed off nicely toned legs in gold heels.

Jayne looked incredible in her flame themed outfit that had gold, red and orange.

Heather wore a cute yellow outfit for her snaps.

The blonde wore a crop top with a flirty miniskirt as she posed with her partner.

New dad Maks wore a white shirt that was unbuttoned and black slacks.

There had been several hints that Viall would be a part of the team.

E! News had reported the bad boy of The Bachelor would join DWTS several days ago.

And on Tuesday Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss tweeted: ‘I am happy to announce that @viallnicholas28 will be doing some dancing in the near future!!! #TheBachelor.’

So his inclusion was far from a shock.

Viall is the franchise’s first lead to do DWTS since Chris Soules in 2015.

Nick is still on his dating show.

Morris has an edge on DWTS. She has a background in dancing.

The beauty was also on season two of So You Think You Can Dance.

She got her start as a back-up dancer for Beyoncé on The Beyoncé Experience Tour and the mini Single Ladies promotional tour.

Glee co-star Amber Riley won season 17.

Charo, 65, was big in the 1980s as she appeared on The Love Boat and Fantasy Island. More recently the singer was on Celebrity Wife Swap.

Kattan, 46, came to fame on Saturday Night Live and went on to star in several films.

The funny man was arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles in 2014 after plowing into a Dept. of Transportation truck on the side of the 101 freeway.

Kerrigan’s career took off when she placed 3rd at the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, allowing her to qualify for the 1991 World Championships, where she won the bronze medal as part of an American sweep.

In 1992 she earned a bronze medal in the Albertville Winter Olympics and the silver medal at the 1992 World Championships.

In 1993 Kerrigan became the United States Ladies Champion and followed that up with her historic silver medal performance at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics.

At 19, Biles is already considered one of the best and most decorated gymnasts in the history of the sport.

In the past 14 months, Bolton has gone from sitting atop the standings as the world’s No. 1 bull rider to being paralyzed to becoming an international fashion model.

Ross is a two time World Series Champion, having won World Series titles in 2013 with the Boston Red Sox and with the Chicago Cubs in 2016.

During his 15 year Major League career, he played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates, San Diego Padres, Cincinnati Reds, Boston Red Sox, Atlanta Braves and Chicago Cubs.

Mr T used to be a bouncer then a wrestler. He is best known for his TV series The A-Team.

Jennings is an American football running back who is currently a free agent. He was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Oakland Raiders and the New York Giants.

Hosted by two-time Emmy-winning host Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews (sports host and Dancing with the Stars season 10 finalist), Dancing with the Stars is the hit series in which celebrities perform choreographed dance routines.

They are judged by a panel of ballroom experts, including head judge, Len Goodman, dancers/choreographers Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough.

After the announcement was made several of the cast members were seen on the street in NYC.

Erika wore all black – a black mini dress with sexy leather boots that laced up.

Chmerkovskiy was with his new Dancing With The Stars partner Heather, who was pretty in a long red dress.

And Charo looked fit as a fiddle in a shirt red sparkly dress.
