JJJ is pumped that so many of our favorites will be back for the next season of Dancing with the Stars, which was revealed Wednesday morning (August 13) on Good Morning America.

Not only will five-time champion Derek Hough and his BFF Mark Ballas return for season 19, but so will fan favorites Cheryl Burke, Karina Smirnoff, Val Chmerkovskiy, Peta Murgatroyd, and Witney Carson.

Meanwhile, Tony Dovolani and Emma Slater are also set to lace up their shoes again.
