For the first time ever, viewers will have to tune in to the season premiere to find out with whom their favorite professional dancers are paired. This season also features the return of a loved pro, Peta Murgatroyd, and two new professional ballroom dancers. Talent for the new season includes:

Throughout the first evening, the celebrity and pro duos perform the time-honored dances of the Cha Cha, Foxtrot, Salsa or Tango. Some of the songs featured in the premiere will include Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody," Shania Twain's "Man, I Feel Like a Woman!," Donna Summer's "She Works Hard for the Money," Jonas Brothers' "Sucker," Michael Buble's "Feeling Good," Lizzo's "Juice" and Imagine Dragons' "Whatever it Takes," among others.

For the show's first broadcast, there is no viewing audience vote, and only the judges score the routines. Those scores carry over and will be combined with judges' scores from week two, which also marks the first weekly live viewing audience vote of the season (via abc.com and SMS/text) -- and the first elimination. The live votes will occur each week only during the live broadcast in the EDT/CDT time zones (but fans in all U.S. time zones may vote within that window).

Moving forward with each subsequent Monday night, the live vote combined with the judges' scores will be revealed during the broadcast.
