"Dancing with the Stars" 2013: Season 17 Cast Announced

Sep 4 2013, 7:49am CDT | by ABC News Radio

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(NEW YORK) -- The choreography, costumes and heated competition are all back for season 17 of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, along with 12 new celebrities ready to take to the dance floor.

Actress Valerie Harper, King of Queens star Leah Remini, TV personality Jack Osbourne, former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson, and reality star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi are among the contestants vying for the coveted mirrorball trophy this season.

Singer Christina Milan, Glee star Amber Riley, actress Elizabeth Berkley Lauren of Saved by the Bell fame, and comedian Bill Engvall, will also lace up their dancing shoes this season.

Disney star Corbin Bleu, Brant Daugherty of Pretty Little Liars, and Bill Nye, who is best known as "The Science Guy," round out the dynamic lineup.

The entire 2013 celebrity cast was revealed live Wednesday on ABC's Good Morning America in New York City's Times Square.  Hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet kicked off the much-buzzed about announcement and also unveiled the celebrities' professional partners.

The new season kicks off with a two-hour premiere on Monday, Sept. 16, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.  For the first season ever, the hit show will combine the performance and results show into one two-hour program on Monday nights.  The couple with the lowest scores from the judges that night combined with the public votes from the previous week's performance will be eliminated./>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>
