It's the moment we've all been waiting for. Don your sequins, and grab your tap shoes: the new Dancing With the Stars cast has finally been revealed. While we were kept at bay with the news that Honey Boo Boo would be starring on the new season of Dancing With the Stars: Juniors, we were still left excitedly anticipating who we would get to see break a leg (or, more hopefully, shake a leg) on season 27 of DWTS. Earlier today, we finally got our answers. It was exciting enough to know that "Grocery Store Joe" (Joe Amabile) would be joining the crew, but the ABC Dancing With the Stars Instagram was keeping us all on our toes with loads of teaser pics!

They really know how to keep us guessing! It's always fun to speculate over who will make the cut each season, especially when more controversial cast members wind up on the roster. Drama makes for great reality TV, right? We're stoked to see the fun, hilarious, heart-wrenching, and emotional scenes these pairs have to offer. Iconic moments are surely ahead -- but truly, will anything ever beat that one time The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's Alfonso Ribeiro actually did the Carlton? With such a power-packed bunch of athletes, singers, and screen stars alike, we know that they're guaranteed to bring their own brand of entertainment.

Joe Amabile had a lot to say about starring on the new season. "The live audience is the least of my worries. That part I don’t mind. It's the actual dancing part!” he mentioned when asked about this season. Don't worry, Joe -- we think all of your competitors are feeling just the same way.
