By Zach Johnson

The time has come to lace up their dancing shoes…

Dancing with the Stars will return for its milestone 30th season in less than two weeks… and we just learned who else will be joining previously announced celebrity contestants Suni Lee and JoJo Siwa on the dance floor! The rest of all-star cast was just announced live on ABC’s Good Morning America. Take a look at the legendary lineup below, and be sure to tune in for the two-hour season premiere on Monday, September 20, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

The celebrity cast of Dancing with the Stars includes:

  • Country singer Jimmie Allen
  • Spice Girl Melanie C
  • Christine Chiu (Bling Empire)
  • Brian Austin Green (Beverly Hills, 90210)
  • Melora Hardin (The Office)
  • Social media star Olivia Jade
  • Matt James (The Bachelor)
  • Amanda Kloots (The Talk)
  • Martin Kove (Cobra Kai)
  • Gold medal Olympian Suni Lee
  • WWE Superstar Mike “The Miz” Mizanin
  • Kenya Moore (The Real Housewives of Atlanta)
  • Peloton instructor Cody Rigsby
  • NBA player Iman Shumpert
  • Pop star JoJo Siwa

The cast appeared live from Disney California Adventure Park to announce the exciting news. “This is a great opportunity,” Moore told Disney Legend Robin Roberts and Lara Spencer on Good Morning America. “It’s live, you know? You can’t mess up. You’re on the dance floor. You have to remember your moves and give it all you got. You have one shot.” Like Moore, Green said he is “all in” this season. “I’m just trying to keep the bar as low as possible so there’s no expectations,” the TV star joked. “Then I have nowhere to go but up.”

Rigsby, who was previously a professional dancer for recording artists such as Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry, said he’s “using muscles I haven’t used in a while” in rehearsals. Luckily, Rigsby added, “I’ve built up the endurance on Peloton in my cycling classes—so I’m ready!”
