I’m back! I hope you all had a lovely summer, I have been busier than normal.
Today was a big announcement day in the Dancing with the Stars world: The season 23 cast was announced!
Unlike cast announcements in the past, it wasn’t a large production on Good Morning America. I’m not sure why, but it felt a little “off”. Here are the videos from this morning:
Here’s a nice clip from Entertainment Tonight, giving us a visual of all of the couples:
Here are the GMA tweets from this morning:
Season 23 Surprises (for me):
– The Return of Some Pros: I think these returns were the biggest surprise for me. First, it was Gleb’s return announced. It seemed like it was the next day that Maks was announced (a fantastic surprise)! Yesterday (or the day before), Derek was confirmed. And this morning, Cheryl! Oh, Allison and Emma are also back after a single-season break.
– The “Time Off” of Some Pros: I will miss seeing Tony, Keo, and Mark 😦 And Peta is very pregnant, so her absence is understandable. Kym Johnson also announced that she’s basically done with the show.
– Ryan Lochte: With making news headlines recently, I’m kind of surprised he came on the show. I have seen people comment that they are not going to watch the show because of him. I disagree with that “logic” (perhaps because I watch the show for the dancing and not the celebrities) … just don’t vote for him.
– Terra Jolé: I actually watch her show (very entertaining) and I was surprised and happy to finally see a little person on the show.
It’s Disney Night on Dancing with the Stars! In the past, Disney Night has been during week 5, but I guess since there is a Switch-Up Week this season (which also happens on week 5), it has to come sooner.
The opening number was less grand as the opening numbers in the past (s18 & s20), but I really liked the lights on everything (I just like lights in general lol) and the Mickey-shaped stage was so cute! I liked how they introduced the couples with the movie they were dancing a song from.

It’s the most
wonderful MAGICAL time of the year!
Since its premiere in season 18’s 5th week, Disney week has graced our television screens during Dancing with the Stars’ spring seasons. There has been some memorable routines and some breakthrough moments in the contestants. I’m sure this season will not disappoint!
Season 22’s first guest judge of the season will be around for Disney week:
Who will be dancing to what? Click to find out! (I will update this post as more information is confirmed [as in posts from DWTS and the cast], so keep checking back!)
This week on Dancing with the Stars, the theme is Most Memorable Year. In the past, we usually see very emotional performances dedicated to family or pivotal moments in a celebrity’s career. I don’t think tonight will be any different.
DWTS posted previews on their Instagram of the celebs’ memorable moments.
There was no opening number this week, just an intro of the cast.

Opening number got me like 🙂 It was a fun routine from the pros and they had very cute skirts!
