'Dancing With the Stars' Season 15 All-Star Celebrity and Professional Pairs



The "Dancing With the Stars" season 15 celebrity and pro pairs were announced today on "Good Morning America."

For the first time ever, previous celebrity contestants will return to the ballroom to compete for the coveted mirrorball trophy. Many of the all-star contestants are reuniting with their trusted pro partners this season, including fan favorite actress Kristie Alley (season 12) and pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, former ‘NSync member Joey Fatone (season 4) and pro Kym Johnson, "Life's a Tripp" reality star Bristol Palin (season 11) and Mark Ballas, former Dallas Cowboys star Emmitt Smith (season 3) and pro Cheryl Burke, and TV personality Melissa Rycroft (season 8) and Tony Dovolani.

But former Olympians and “DWTS” champs Apolo Anton Ohno and Shawn Johnson will have new teammates to tango with. Ohno won season 4 with former pro Julianne Hough, but will dance this season with Karina Smirnoff. Johnson won season 8 with pro partner Mark Ballas, who is paired up with Palin this time around.
