What do get when you combine Olympians, reality stars, and a member of the A-Team? The new cast of Dancing With The Stars, of course!
On Wednesday, the lineup for season 24 of the hit dancing competition was officially revealed on Good Morning America — and it's looking to be the most competitive cast yet.
Simone told People she was "nervous but also excited" to be competing for the Mirrorball Trophy, something she's wanted to do "for such a long time."
But the 18-year-old gymnast will be facing off against some stiff competition of talented performers — like Glee star Heather Morris, Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei, and Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan.
Derek Hough won't returning this season, but among the DWTS pro dancers includes two engaged couples: Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd, and Sasha Farber and Emma Slater.
See the full list of celeb-pro pairings for season 24 (below) — and catch the premiere March 20 on ABC!
We love the way they move!
…but with newly added host Jenna Dewan-Tatum as well, saying:
