“Dancing With The Stars” just announced their contenders for the upcoming season, including a former NBA star Lamar Odom.


The wait is finally over as “Dancing With The Stars” revealed their contestants for season 28 on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday. Stars from different professions are ready to groove it to different beats as they compete in the hit dance show.

Included in the cast is former Los Angeles Lakers champion, Lamar Odom, who will use his foot skills on the court on the dance floor. He will be competing against the “Bachelorette’s” Hannah Brown, and “Queer Eye’s” Karamo Brown.


James Van Der Beek, Christie Brinkley, and Lauren Alaina are also among season 28’s contenders. The show recently sparked excitement among their fans after putting out a clue for one of their celebrity dancers, and as many guessed, Ally Brooke from Fifth Harmony landed a place in the show.

Former NFL star Ray Lewis, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Kel Mitchell, Kate Flannery, and The Supremes music icon Mary Wilson are set to join the stage in the upcoming premiere of “Dancing With The Stars.”


“Can’t stop, won’t stop,” said Brown during “Good Morning America’s” Wednesday airing. “I am so excited. I want a fresh start, something that I can go all-in with, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and I think dancing is something that I can do that with.”

DWTS alum, Peta Murgatroyd will also be back as a pro dancer for this season after leaving in 2017. The 33-year-old expressed her “excitement” after missing her family for years.


“I definitely wanted this to happen,” she said. “I hoped that I could make this work for a couple of months now and was praying and hoping that it would all align. It was the perfect time for my family.”

The initial release of season 28’s cast was supposedly on “Good Morning America’s” August 5 airing but was postponed due to the shootings that took place in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio that weekend.

Tom Bergeron, the host of the show, tweeted a clue of when the big reveal was to be, which made fans of DWTS even more excited. Last season’s cast included Alexis Ren, Juan Pablo di Pace, and Bobby Bones, among many others.
