After weeks of speculation, ABC has finally revealed which celebrities will be competing on season 17 of “Dancing With The Stars.”
As was rumored last week, Leah Remini has joined the show and has been partnered with Tony Dovolani. The show marks Remini’s first gig after very publicly leaving the Church of Scientology. “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will also compete, hopefully faring better than her former castmate Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, who competed on the show in 2010. Snooki has been partnered with Sasha Farber. As a surprising addition to the show, Valerie Harper, who is battling brain cancer, will be competing during the 17th cycle. She has been paired with Tristan MacManus.
There will also be some major changes made to the next season of “DWTS.” The show has been cut to one episode a week, combining the results show with the performances.
