dancing with the stars

OMG. Mark your calendars, people, because the cast of Dancing With the Stars season 19 will be announced on Thursday, September 4, with the show actually premiering on September 15.

(I know ... where did the summer go?!?)

Last week, the news broke that Julianne Hough will be a new judge this time around, which already added an extra element of change and excitement to the ballroom.

But if the DWTS season 19 cast rumors are true? Well, we're in for even more of a treat than we initially expected.

For starters, there's still a bit of buzz going around saying that Bachelorette Andi Dorfman will compete with her chosen man, Josh Murray, which will be all sorts of interesting if it really happens. I mean, nothing quite tests a relationship like two people grinding up and down against two other hot individuals -- there's definitely a chance for temptation to set in.

And aside from Andi and Josh? Supposedly country singer Jessie James Decker will give dancing a try for a change. Hey, why not?

Oh, and if you've been totally addicted to American Ninja Warrior like pretty much everyone else in this country, you'll be psyched to hear that Kacy Catanzaro has been mentioned as a possible cast member. That's so exciting I can hardly stand it. Who doesn't love her? And who wouldn't love to see her tackle the ballroom floor now that she's proven what a strong competitor she is? (OMG. They SO have to pair her with Val Chmerkovskiy.)

In addition to Andi, Josh, Jessie, and Kacy, Real Housewife Kandi Burruss and soccer player Tim Howard have also been thrown out there as possibilities.

I guess we'll know for sure in about a week and a half who wound up making the cut. (But now that we've been teased with Kacy as part of the cast, it had better be true!)

Who do you hope winds up being part of DWTS season 19?
