'Dancing With The Stars' Spoilers Reveal Celebrity Pro Pairings Ahead of Premiere Date

Dancing With The Stars is changing the game this season with a new theme, environment and time to reveal celebrity/pro pairings.

While the news of which superstar dancer each celebrity is matched with usually comes before the season, this year, viewers won't find out the official couples until premiere night. That doesn't mean there aren't spoilers, though.

It seems difficult to keep the dance partners a secret, as all celebrities are already rehearsing for their time on the dance floor. Some have even shared secret shots from rehearsals, like former Bachelorette Hannah Brown, who teased the revelation of her dance partner but told fans they'd have to wait.

  • Kate Flannery and Sasha Farber

  • Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson

The late reveal of dance partners won't be the only change this season. Fans were stunned after the cast photo revealed and ultra-classy shot with all celebrities in black, evening attire. It was a change from the show's typical aura, which includes lots of sparkles and excitement. It's said the show's set will follow suit this year, with a high-class facelift.

Spoilers for the set's look, which is said to be donned with gold, were revealed by Entertainment Tonight on Monday. The entire look is said to be inspired by Art Deco.

The upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars will premiere on September 16. It will run for 10 weeks, as usual.

Dancing With The Stars is coming back from a controversial season, which saw country radio host Bobby Bones take the crown. Though Bones was a fan favorite, many were upset by his win, considering his scores throughout the season were mediocre at best. It started a conversation about the show's goals, which some said seem to be keeping popular contestants on, even if they fail at the dancing part.

Twitter users expressed their shock in a series of memes when Bones was crowned the winner in November 2018.
