Put on your dancin’ shoes, because Dancing With the Stars season 27 is almost here — and we’re learning which celebrities will be competing for the mirrorball trophy this time around.
First up: The Facts of Life star Nancy McKeon.
McKeon will be partnered with dance pro Val Chmerkovskiy for Dancing With the Stars season 27 — and she’s thrilled to be with him.
“He is awesome,” McKeon said during the reveal on Good Morning America. “He’s the most amazing partner, most patience than anybody I know and I’m so lucky.”

It looks like the suits at ABC are drawing out the big cast reveal for Dancing With the Stars season 27 for as long as possible. McKeon is the only celebrity announced to hit the dance floor this fall so far.
That said, there are plenty of rumors about the Dancing With the Stars season 27 cast.
According to Reality Steve, former Bachelorette contestant Joe Amabile — AKA Joe the Grocer — will be on DWTS, as will radio personality Bobby Bones.
It’s rumored that Bones will be partnered with pro Sharna Burgess.
“I’ve been so immersed in prepping, rehearsal and my partner that I totally haven’t hinted for you guys yet,” Burgess, 33, tweeted about her partner, though she didn’t name him. “Here’s what I’ll tell you….we laugh A LOT, we work so hard every minute of rehearsal already. He’s in this for the right reasons & with a heart of gold. In just 3 days he’s grown so much already, and I think you’re all going to adore him. I already do.”
That said, we do know who the pros will be during Dancing With the Stars season 27. Besides Val Chmerkovskiy and Burgess, we can expect Jenna Johnson, Cheryl Burke, Emma Slater, Lindsay Arnold, Witney Carson, Sasha Farber, Gleb Savchenko, Artem Chigvintsev, Keo Motsepe, Alan Bersten and Brandon Armstrong to be fixtures this season.
We’ll update you as soon as the full Dancing With the Stars season 27 cast is revealed.
